road to lascasti:r.
By an act of the Territorial Legisla
ture Inst winter, authority was g.ven
for the survey nnd location of a Terri
torial road from Plattsmouth lo Lan-cat-ter,
the county seut of Lancaster
county. The survey wa ceglec;pd un
til a few days ago; when the Commis
sioners proceeded to make ihe proper
location. We learn that the road, as
lnr ilt-il, i on nf tbp natural routoo
in the west, being over a smooth coun
try, and needing but ono bridge on the
entire route. U shortens the distance
to be traveled by many n.ile?, being
en!y forty-seven miles from Plattsmvuth
to Lancaster. Tho need of this road
has be-n felt by the people of Lancas
ter county, as heretofore they have been
compelled to go to Nebraska City for
the purpose of trading, or travel a
roundabout way to get lo Plattsmouih.
The ttade of that country is of no small
importance, and is steadily increaing.
Its natural base is at this city; but for
lack of a proper road leading here, it
has been scattered along the river at
the most accessible points. Hereafter
we may expect almost the entire busi
ness of tid only Lancaster, but the oth
er western counties. These western
counties are fast filling vp with iudus
trious and energetic men, and in a short
time will ie ihe most wenkhy part of
Nebraska. From personal knowledge,
and the statements of others,-we know
that ihe people of Lancaster look upon
this as their natural ouilet to the river;
and if our citizen would perpetuate ihe
amicable feeling existing between the
two sections, ihy must lay hold and
open the road immediately. We under
stand ihe people of Lancaster propose
to make the necessary repairs on the
west end of the road, and we should
not be tehiud in that belonging to us.
There is but little work necessary ex
cept the bridge above referred to (across
Carnp Creek), and our citizens should
not delhy a moment, but commence op
erations immediately, and have ihe
bridge completed before winter tots in.
The olli.-ial returns of the Territory
show an increase in the Union majority
over last year. Mr. Hitchcock's major
ity last year was 793. while Kouutze's
majority this year is So2 nnd Gillespie's
C94. The fact of Mr. Seatoa having
served with honor in ihe army not
withstanding he consented to be used
by his natural enemies after retiring
from service detracted somewhat from
Mr. Gillespie's vote. We congratulate
tho Ution men of Nebraska upon ihe
result, as it show conclus;vely that Ne
tratka is safe to the friends cf the
Union; for the Democracy did not leave
a stone unturned that they thought would
add to their strengih. They even weat
bo far as to endorse Andy Johnson "

Canada over Fin ion affairs, and meas
ures aro being taken to counteract their
It ia too much the case that men fol
low, Llind'y, whatever political course
is LiM out for them by the leaders of ihe
party to which they claim to belong.
We have always adhered to the prin
ciple that this was a government of the
people; and the will of the people, ex
rtssed through the ballot-box, should
be the ruling power. e find vast
numbers of people who abuse this
privilege they possess of having a voice
in the government, by sustaining men
who enunciate views in direct opposition
to those they entertain. They do this
because of an individual assuming the
party name towards whicn tney are
most favorable. This course, we be
lieve, is more common iu the Demo
cra'ic party than in the Union party.
It has always been proverbial that
every one claiming to be a Democrat
would vole the '-stright ticket," regard
less of who were on it, or whether or
not they entertained views correspond
ing with tho5e of ihe voter. This
course has been one of the principal
causes of the overthrow of the party.
The will of the people, properly ex
pressed, is generally preity near cor
rect; but this plan of "voting the ticket,
anyway," has been ihe means of hoist
ing bad men into power men who pro
mulgated opinions repugnant to those
who elected them, even. But they were
leaders of ihe party, and the rank and
file had not the moral courage to de
nounce their acts, and place themselves
in opposition to the doctrines they ad
vocated; consequently it was not the
views and wishes of the people that were '
acted upon, but those of designing dem
agogues who had been hois'ed into
power on the strength of a party name.
For an example, we will quote from a
leader in the LaCrosse Democrat, of
Oct. 19th, a leading Democratic paper,
publihed by "Brick ronieroy." He
"Where is Lincoln, the joking patron
saint o: mggen-m. who owes so much
to John Wilkes Booth, and who is well
nigh forgotten already, with hardly a
dozen in the land to revere his memo-
ry? We deprecate as-:
sas,inalion, yet we feel to thank God
for calling Lincoln home, wherever
that home may be."
Now, we do not, cannot, believe that
ihfse are the sentiments of the major
ity of the men calling themselves Dem
ocrat; yet this language is allowed to
pass without a word of rebuke by any
of the party, for the reason that it em
anates from one of the "leaders" whom
the i auk huJ file &o blindly follow.
Now, it is our belief that men could be
of far more benefit to themselves, and
render a greater service to the country
(and all are apparently anxious to ren
der her some service in these times)
by coming out squarely and denouncing,
not only such sentiments, but the men
who utter them, than by keeping silent,
and thus virtually endorsing them. We
say again, be reasonable, come out
from amongst the men who will thus
publicly desecrate the name of the man
who slaved the Government, and s-aved
to future generations our republican in
stitutions. V. II. & ST. JO. II. R.
The Council Bluffs and St. Joseph
Bailroad bids fair to be the first to give
an outlet by rail to this part of the coun
try. Everything indicates that this road
will be completed in advance of all
others, and it occurs to us that the citi
zens of Plattsmouth should take some
steps to receive the benefit of its erly
completion. We are not advised in
regard to the proposed line of the road,
but think it is cf sufficient importance
to be looked after by our citizens. We
could scarcely afford to have a road
built along the line of ihe bluffs oppo
site this city, if within our power to
bring it to the rier. It may be the in
tention to bring the road to ihe river at
this point (as it would undoubtedly be
to the interests of the company as well
as ourselves), yet it is high time those
interested in Plattsmouth knew some
thing about it. Let us have some un
derstnnding about ihe matter; and if the
company have not already decided upon
running to this point, let us take such
steps as will cause them to do to. Now
is the time to act, before a permanent
location is made that will leave us "out
in the cold." Faint heart never won
fair lady;' and we ennnot expect to se
cure railroads unless we are up and
THE LATK ELECTIONS.
The late elections m Iowa, Ohio,
Massachusetts, New York. Wisconsin,
Minnesota and New Jersey have con
siderably dampened the ardor of ihe
Democracy. Even little New Jersey,
that was always proverbial for her
Democracy, has come out on the tide
of truth and liberty, and elected a Re
publican Governor and Legislature.
In Majsachusetts the Democrats have
elected but one member of the Legisla
ture. The work of freedom progresses
as the world becomes more enlightened;
and in a abort time we expect to find
the great' principles of Republicaniem
tpread through the whole world.

We have just received news of an
other serious Indian outrage unon the
plains. N II. Bice. Esq., an old res
ident of Denver, reached Omaha yes
lerday afternoon, and gives us th
About (cur o'clock p. m. on the 2S h
u'l., the train with which Mr. Bice
was coming down arrived at a point
fuiir mi!e above Alkali Station, and
the party fthen observed an up train,
consi.-ung pf about sixty teams, in the
act of corral ing. But before a!l of
the train oi into position, a body of
Indians, variously estimated at from
100 to 30. sallied forth from the hills
and succe'-ded in cutting off ten of the
number. I Six of the drivers lied to the
main body and escaped. Four stood
their ground, and were instantly over
powerod nnd Willed. The down train
formed with the advance of ths up
train iivfaet with a'l of it except the
ten teams that were cut olT and no
attack wai made upon them.
The Lilians "hamstrung" and oth
erwise di-rabled r'I of the cattle which
fell into uaeir hauls, and took the mules
away wnju them. The most of the
loading was destroyed, and six of the
wagons were burned.
The names of he men who were
killed, were Albert Gaskill, Geo. W.
Selba, and II. B. nru( Klijah Gallon,
father snd son. Ad of these were
stripped, except Gaskill. Setby was
burnt to -a crip. Each one; was liter
ally tilled with arrows. These unfor
tunate men were all from Wayne
county, owa. The bodies were takeu
charge cf by thoe connected with ihe
train, ai d decently buried.
It is -of conrst; impossible to ascer
tain what tribe of Indians is guilty of
this massacre; but ihe Pawnees who
tx,- ruined the arrows say they are of
.the Sioux manufacture.
We l ave news to-dav by Hon. W.
N. McCandlish, just arrived from Ft.
Kearney, that Gen. Heath had had a
fight ith the Indians near Alkali,
and ha,l killed quite a number. We
The rirain of Clark Bros., of Belle-
vue, wsare informed, lost seventy head
of cattle near Julesburg, and a man
named .Fbar, of Fremont, had sus
tained losses to a considerable amount.
Sinc-i the above was in type, we
learn that Gen. Heath overtook the In
dians And punished them severely;
killing tnd wounding fifty. He fought
them f.vice; first at Rocky Point, and
again yn the Stinking Water. The
Indians numbered some 300. Gen.
Heaihs force consisted of 175, men
and officers. They were four days
t without wood or water, and two of the
days en'irely without food.
13 The Jews, both in this country
and in Europe, have for several years
past bucn making great efforts lo raise

is a sublimiiy of purpose about the

We make the following extract from
letter writen by Judge Hosmer, of
Montana, to the Omaha Republican.
After giving a lengthy description of
th mining and agricultural condition
of the country, together with a con
densed history of the Teiritory siuce
the first discovery of gold, he says:
New Fork w.ll be 11 wJed with Mon
tana quartz the coming winter and it
may, possibly will, become a drug. Be
that as it may, there is a bright future
before this young and growing territory
and people who go there with a lit
tle capi al to commence with, need have
no fear of success in any honest pursuit
But every emigrant to Montana needs
a small capital people having nothing,
had heller slay away, ns provisions and
goods of ell kinds are at least five times
in advance of prices in ihe Slates, and
labor jusi now ,is not in great demand.
If a man can go there with means suf
ficient to stock a ranche in Gallatin, and
put in wheal early in the ?prinj, he will
have a sure thing. His wheat will af
ford him from five to eiht dollars a
bushel, when it comes in. Or if he can
take with hjm, in addition to enough for
subsistence, a fw hundred dollars to in
vest in quartz or placer mining, he can
return to the States with property, that
under ordinary circumstances will make
him comfortable; but he must be content
with hard fare, and suffer many priva
tions unknown to people in the States.
Hard work is the only condition upon
which fortune can be made, even amid
the gold mines of Montana
I regret to say that this Territory is
controled by Copperheads. The earli
est settlers were Mi'sourians, and of
ihe worst stripe. Half of Price's army
fled to this Territory when it disbanded.
Hundreds went there to escape the draft,
The Republicans live in hope. They
made a good fight th:s fall in the effort
to elect Major Upson, but ihe Copper
heads succeeded in re-electing Col. Mc
Lean. This condition of affair. cannot
endure. Many of the worst citizens
of ihe Territory are finding their way
back to the States, leaving tneir places
to be filled by a more enterprising and
