"Wo recollect seeing, a few days ago,
an article in one f our Nebraska ex
changes, the statement that the Union
Pacific Kail Road, which ban Omaha for
its Eastern Tertnir.m, was only a b'tindi
of the Great Koad itself. This idea we
feel it n duty to correct, because it is a
gross error. 'J he rmul thai .lurl. fn,m Ih is
point ix tht Main Trunk at th? Great Pa
cific Kail Koad. which is to have two
branches, one running from Sioux City,
(touthwesterl, and th other from Kan
sas, northwesterly, to intersect the Miin
Tfunk from this city, nt or near the lOLlth
meridian, whit-li point is about fifty miles
west of Fort Kearny Congress, if we
are not mistaken, fixed the Eastern ter
mini of th.'! two branches, am! the point
of intersection with th Ma'n Trunk; but
President Lincoln-, under the act incor
porating the Company, fixed this city as
tho eastern termination of the Main
We cannot understand how ftny ono
should err in tins important historical
matter. lut some, persons do so. It l.i
because Omali i is the terminal point
East, of this gigantic enterprise, that
now gires it such importance in the ryei
of tho great capitalists of tho world.
And wlnl-tt capital is always chary of its
fnvors to tl m'liful point-!, its ryos are
w iuo open tt tiio advantages which our
young city now presents, because of the
fact nam'.d, among others, and h"nce the
commencement already of investments
here by men of enlarged viws and ener
getic purposes, iuch as do not now occur
in other towns on either tho Mississippi
or Missouri rivers.
The above is from the Daily Repub
lican, publi.-hed at Omaha. The lfiri
to cotrtct a "gross error" is made about
as clear as liiiu. "Congress if we are
not mistaken," etc ; "President Lincoln
fixed the eastern terminus," etc. How
conclusively is it proven thai "this is
the main trunk(?) IJ is no argument, and
as we have nothing but the iaws of
Congress, we are willing to found our
opinion on ihem, resting sali fied thai
:he main trunk commences at the 100th
meridian, and whether it is at a point
fifty miles uest of Kearney, or sou;h
west therefrom, remains to be proven;
for when the work on that is commenc
ed it will have been previously decided
by Congress whethor it should bw on
he Republican or Plane rivers which
uetision nas not yet been made ami
is in view of the importance to us oi"
the selection that we have felt called
upon to speak on this subject.
The Daily I'rcss, of Nebraska City,
is in error when it states that Colorado
favors putting ihe main trunk on the
Smoky Hill. We have it from the best
authority, and those most deeply in'er- i containing false information, nor yet to j ice , sti 1 their antipatfiy to animal mai-
ested, that Colorado favors the Repab- j ihe fact that the Democracy "ained con. u'r3 's fc'',c'1 as l" Prt-'vent them from

case with some people; yt t not with the
intelligent a nd tlnnkit g portion. We
are glad to be able to say that we have

either Demoimt or Republican, who
publicly endorse the cnurs por.-ued ly

from the interior countie?, telling them
that the meeting of tlie legislature had
been postponed several days, in order
that they would not be present at the
organization, is a tiling which any one
but a Dijm ;craiic pohti. ian in Nebraska
would blush to be accused of; and we
are glad to know that such things are
discountenanced, and the au'.hrrs look
ed upon with contempt by ihe strongest
paniz in Democrats in this locality.
Another sample of the cnicanoiy and
ow p.mizaii trickery t f these lights of
Democra. y in ihe hgislature is the ad
sion of Mr. FaitlUner to a seat in

j order that ihey n.izihi have a majority

he was as justly entitled as any mem-
ber now sitting in that body.
Now, it is not so much the injustice
done to Mr Heath, or to those members
who were delayed in consequence of
the knavery of sending them letl-rs

to during, and immediately preceding
the present session of the legi-lature?
Where will this thing end, unless the
people, in their imj?siy. put down the
men who would thus trample their
rights utilerfoot. .We have had one
example cf what ihis style of statesman
ship lends to, in the late civil war; and
we opine the people of Nebraska do not
care to place men in power who pur-ue
the same line of conduct that caused the
war, even for the sake of party names
