WEDNESDAY, JAN. 31, 18GG
tiic c;iu:at scab, of tijc
TEieitiTonv or col.okaio.
We see from the lloikti
.Veu'S, of the lt5.Ii int., that (joverr.cr j
Cumutings has taken pccs-esion of ti. j
great seal of the Tf rriiory of ColpraJo.
This has he en ikna with the eviJeu
design of comj eliing all laisiM'sa re
quiring the impress of that seal U be
transacted where the? seal new ii. It
seems that certain speculative halils,
of which His Uxctllency showed him
self strongly possessed in his military
career we allude to his ".-traw hat
and cotton breeches" improvement of
"Itegulation uniform" still dominate
over his otherwisa iron will, in tha ca
pacity of Governor of ColoraJj. On
Lis arrival at Denver he rented premi
ses at his own expense, and ctdertcl
the Territorial Secretary, Hon. S. II.
Elbert, to move Lis cilice to the new
location. On a refusal to this raihcr
arbitrary procedure of the Governor's
being given, a system of petty persecu
tions was instituted to force the Secre
tary to accede to his wish-:?, resulting
ultimately in the military expedient of
capturing and carrying "fi the "great
seal" but this having failed to reduce
the Secretary into a submission to His
Excellency's will tLe safe was bur
glariously made to follow the seal
through tho astute tactics cf the whilom
commander Lut, notwithstanding these
heavy losses, the gallant Set-relay main
timed his ground and stiil holds the
banner entrusted to him by Secretary
Seward hung out upon tho cutward
So far as the published accounts of
this singular transaction go, we consid
er the conduct of His Excellency deci
dedly wrong. The great seal of the
Territory cf Colurado properly belong?
to the Secretary of the Territory, who
holds it in trust for the St treury cf the
United S.ates, whose officer he is
and the' Governor of Colorado has no
more right to it by virtue of his cilice,
than lie bas to the Secretary's signature.
To arrogate to himself the right to
domineer and tyrannise over ttie ap
pointee cf Secretary Seward, because
he is Governor, is an absurdity so very
detracting to his reputation for common
sense that i. .would not surprise us to
hear of his speedy removal.'
The litne has arrived when Nebras
ka, as a whole, should do tomething to
let the people of the east, and of the
whole wjrld, know what a beautiful,
healtty and productive coun'.ry we have.
We should not stand with our hands in
our pocket?, wailing for piuplu to find
out these things as Lest they can, tut
make an effort to spread tho knowledge.
This can be accomplished very easily,
in our opinion, if each individual in t!ie
country who is capable of writing an
intelligible sentence would devote an
hour or twa each week 13 teiliug his
friends in the east what every one
knows who has li ved in Nebraska twelve
months. Write fnr your Territorial pa
pers, and give such tacts as may bo in
your possession that are calculated to
give the public a general knowledge of
the country, climate, soil, products, fee.
We would again nsk the people of this
locality, as we have heretofore done, to
place these things before the people;
through the medium of the -Herald.
Do not expect us to do it all. We are
willing and anxious to do all we can;
but cannot be expected to be conversant
with all matters of interest in the Ter
ritory; and if we were, there are many
in this community who could lay them
before the public in as good, cr better,
shape than it would be possible for us
to do, and therefore we urge upon you
the necessity of this courso
We not only invite correspondence
of this nature, but also upon any sub?
ject that may be of general interest, or
even of local interest alone. We are
just as liable to err iti judgment upon
either local or general mailers as. any
individual ; and haviug no desire to
force our particular views on any sub
ject upon ihe people unless" thy will
stand the test, we therefore urge such
of our fellow citizens of this locality as
are acquiinted with matters of import
ance to the welfare of the Territory in
general, and this locality in particular,
to make known their views through the
IIekalb. We are notv sending a 'arge
number of papers east each week, and
a series of correspondence; such as
we speak of, would undoubtedly be cf
vast ' benefit to the Territory. Don't
wail for some one else to do something
and then find fault because it is not
done to your liVing; but tike hold and
help to doit jight yourself.
From a letter received by one of our
citizens we are happy to announce that
our old friend Gen. John M Thayer
purposes returning to the Territory
with a view of taking up a permanent
residence at his old home, Omaha. v e
are right &lad of this, not only because
it gives us a sterling citizen, but because
it ia another proof that any one who
has enjoyed the healthful climate of
Nebraska cannot find any other country
whose attract ions can wean them from
our favored section .

e tip the following from a late
number of the Council Bluffs JS'onjr.i-
reil, believing it to bo as applicable tu
this locality ns Council LluiFs. We do
not publish stab matter with any inten
tion of finding fault with any of our
business men, for we have no such in
ttir.iiun; but merely tj show that others
entertain similar views with us i:pon
this subject: '
There is not a man in town who will
rot tell you, if approached on the sub
ject, that ii is the first duty of a ne.vi-p-ipt
r in Council Hiufis to wrk for the
general good of the town; but little space
in i;s columns thould be devoted to po
litical mutter.-; but htt'e to miscellane
ous reading, and a great deal to local
interests. This position is eminently
correct the one rrreat work of the pi
per should be to teli the world at huge
of the advantages of the town in which
it is published, to encourage every good
ivoifc, to use its influence to draw trade
to the town, and, in short, to devote its
columns mainly to building up the gen
eral interests cf the place. We admit
ull this to be cur duty towards the citi
zens nf Council Bluffs. Then, 'on the
other hand, let us inquire of the people
if tL re are net certain diries which
they owe to the paper? Dj you think.
Mr. Lawyer, that you are taking jut
the right coursu to encourage the local
press, and through the press to build
up the town, when you send to Chicago
or New York for your letter-heads be
cause you can cet them printed there
five cents a hundred cheaper than you
can at home? And you, Mr. Merchant,
when you send east for your cards and
bill hesds, do you imagine that by this
act you are doing anything to "build up
Council Bluffs?"' And, you, Mr. Me
cbauic, you who conside r it the duty of
the newspaper to work year after year
for your interest did it ever occur to
! you that you owe a duty to the newspa-
poi? it not, a!lcv us to intimate that
perhaps you Lave never looked at the
matter intlie proper light. According
to tie vulgar b'Jt very truthful old saw,
"money makes die mare go," and the
same principle applies with equal force
to newspapers a publisher can give
you a good paper or a better one, just
according as his receipts shall be large
You may talk as you please about
shops, and mills, and factories bringing
money to the place, but if you want
money, and people, an I business, you
mu:t have t,eit:pipcrs! The press is
the foundation of all progress, and you
can no more build up a town without
papers than u can build a wail wiihr
out a foundation you must begin at the
base, and build y.

General and warmly shook him by the

attended by persons from ditferent parts
cf the United Kingdom and North
America; but th- ae meetings are never
held twice in the same p ace, in order
to battle the police and prevent the sus
piciou of outsiders, an 1 u put the spies
and informers, who seem to : be insepa
rable from an Irish conspiracy, on the
wrong scent. The communication w ith
America is now more active than ever,
but i-j net carried on by writing. Fen-'
lau ambassadors now arrive at Liver
pool, aud leave to and from American
ports weekly; and as many of them are
persons of good address and education,
and as they always travel first class, no
suspicion whatever is afforded. So far
as cur informant has been able to
learn, the latest move of the Fenian
body is to appoint the notorious Meagh
er, of the sword, as dictator. Meagh
er, it will be remembered, was ihe
leader of the Irish brigade, in the re
cent American war. His plan is said
to be to divide 'lie Fenian army into
two 'Immense bodies; ui'h. one to in
vade Canada. tnd with 'he other to
join the Linperor Nap d ?on iti sustain
ing the throne of Maximiilian in Mex

hopes to secure the eternal good will of
ihe Emperor Napoleon, and to eain his
support to his scheme of establishing
the independence of Ireland.
