MAIL. IIOUTES WEST.
The follovvinj m an extract from a
letter from Hon. P. W. Hiichcock, M
C, to one of our citizens, and Ehows
that our delegate is mindful of the wants
of his constituent:
I have obtained two new post-routes
from PlatUmoutl), west and south-west.
Ono following substantially your Fug
pestions, via GlenHale and the Salt
Creek Valley, to Beatrice, in Gage
county a little further than you asked
for. The other from Platumouth to
the Weeping Water. These are de
clared post routes by act of Congre.f;
which the firtt step towards obtaining
service, lhe next is to induce the
Postmaster General to put service on
said routes something I hope I shall
be able to do, and I assure you I shall
leave nothing undone which will tend
to accomplish that result. I think I
This will be pood news to our friends
up the great vallies of Salt Creek and
Weeping Water, who have suffered
long and patiently all the inconveniences
of the present miserable arrangement
for carrying their mails. We hope a
tri-weekly, at least, will be run on these
important routes. The Salt I3ain is
rapidly filling up with an enterprising
and energetic population, and it is high
lime their wants in this respect should
be looked up. Success to our worthy
Of the Brownville Advertiser, appears
to hare given some of the colons of
Nebraska a little trouble by his blunt
manner of "'spitting out" wholesome
truths. Robertson introduces a reso
lution to exclude him from the courte
sies of the House, because he dared to
criticise tha acts of the Hon. Mr. Tay
lor, of Nemaha county. When the
resolution was brought up for action,
this Hon. gentleman said:
"He had a good excuse for not being
present at the beginning .of the session,
and did not care what (he fuzzy editor
of the Advertiser said in lhat regard.
To the other charges he plead guilty.
He hud not paid his bill for printing
tickets at the last election, because Mr.
Culhap had undertaken to collect 10,
an amount which looked like a &mal!
attempt at a swindle. He d:d not take
the Advertiser, because he was sup
plied with much bffer readine matter;
and he di 1 not think the Advertiser
worth the patronizing."
And this is the man sent by the Union
men of Nemaha county to represent
iheni al the capital. Don't take hie
county paper, and refuses to pay the
editor of the paper SIC for furnishing
him tickets and carrying him through
a campaign as a 'dad weight" to the
balance of the ticket (as such a man
must be)! and after he has been thu
safely carried through, he stays away,
(of course he could not be there.) and
allows the organization of the legisla
ture to go by default; and then has the
simplicity to state publicly that he re
fused to pay this :::all sum of money,
and denounces the paper that has been
his sfpning-stone to the legislature,
without a cent of pay, as "net worth
l?SSNebraska City is eighty miles
nearer Fort Kearney than any other
freighting point on the Missouri river,
and the best road running west, and as
a muter of-course freight can be trans
ported from this point cheaper. J .
Only eighty miles? If we are not
very'niuch mistaken, it is only thirty
miles from Plattsmouth to Nebraska
City; but we suppose Nebraska City
has swelled the o.her fifty miles. You
had belter look out, Mr. .Yeirs, or the
Omaha George Frncis, who gives
money for the sir port of Christianity
and the influence of his paper against
it, will accuse you of being "sectional."
We learn, bj private source, that the
Constitution passed the House to-day,
and the time specified for voting upon
it is the 2d day of June. Thus the
matter is placed before the people, for
their approval or condemnation. We
propose to be heard from on the i.ub
ject, and shall pursue such course as we
think will be to ihe interests of the
people. In the meantime, we are
anxious to see the document, and tope
every voter in the Territory will read
and digest it thoroughly.

I JffSThe precipitous and deforming
bluff that stands in the attitude of a for
tification, defying approach to Omaha
from the river, should be removed. It
is a. hideous obstruction to a view of
even our levee, and impresses the
stranger with no very favorable ideas
of our location. The flat lands in frcnt
of the plateau are left as cess-pools for
stagnant water, and furnish the best
possible conditions for the manufacture
of lhat occult poL-on in which our epi
demies originate, which is called ma
laria for want of a better name. All
along our river front, from Sulphur
Spring to the Stone Quarry, the rum
mer feason is busy in producing this
dangerous source of disease. Heat,
moiMure and decaying vegeiutiou are
the source of our fevers, and in no
part of this country are these conditions
more richly concentrated than in the
immediate front of the town.
Drains do not seem to remove the
water on the bottoms. becaus3 they are
the receptacle into which the whole ad
jacent hills surrounding are drained.

Omaha, Tuesday, Feb, G.
Ed. Herald: A bill passed lhe
House to day extending the charter of
the city of Plattsmouth.
An amendment was made to the
Revenue Law, so that Road Supervi
sors need only give a certificate for la
bor on the road instead of swearing lo
each receipt as heretofore.
In committee of the whole a motion
was adopted to increase the amount of
School Tax. Some of the members
from your county have been very anx
ious to change the present School Law,
so as to abolish the Sab-District system.
It ought to be done.
All attempts to pass the Credit Fon
cier bill over the Governor's veto have
been abandoned; but Mr. Lake to-day
introduced a new bill with lhat title, said
to be unobjectionable; perhaps so.
The Democracy feel pretty sore over
their defeat last Saturday in their at
tempt to place the Union members in a
false position; they were completely
out generalled, and had to swallow their
own medicine. The ''Great Mogul"
of the party has been here for nearly
a week, and he and Miller are said to
have made a desperate effort to prevent
any of the Democracy in the House
from aiding the State movement, but it
is said thai they have signally failed;
certain it is that some Democrats here
are ashamed of their lenders, and are
too honest for either tools or dupes.
The Chief Clerk of the House, Mr.
May, is spoken very highly of by all
pirties as being promp., correct and
attentive to his business, and although
some of the Democrats have twice been
ashamed of the record, and have at
tempted to change it, the House has
almost unanimous!' sustained him.
Omaha, Feb. 7th.
Ed. Herald: The proposed Con
stitution passed its second reading in
the House to-day; its principal fea'ures
are biennial sessions of the Legislature
of 40 days each. The qualifications
of voters are the same as at present,
and the number of Senators and Rep
resentatives, and the Couuciland Rep
resentative districts remain unchanged.
Provision is made lhat the State cannot
contract a debt exceeding 50,000 00
without submitting the matter to a vote
of the people. The State is divided
into three judicial districts, and the
judges hold their offices for a term of
mx years, at a salary of S2.000 per
annum. A lax of S5 is to be laid ou
every suit commenced in the district
court, and SlO in the supreme court.
The Governor is to be elected for a
term of two years, at a salary of Sl.000
per annum, and a Secretary of State at
a salary of $600, and an Auditor, to
hold his office for a term of four years,
at a salary of SSOO. aud a Treasurer
at a salary of S600.
The Credit Foncier bill, which was
permitted to be introduced into the
House, passed to day. It is claimed
that it obviates the principal objections
made by the Governor. It certainly is
a big thing, and if it passes in its pres
ent form 1 trust that the Governor will
again interpose his veto. As a rule,
any bill that requires as much pressure
to pass it as this has c jght to be closely

this morning, attempting to explain the
circumstances connected with the recent
proceedings against him on suspicion of
his implication in a scheme to fit out an
expedition in this rity to assist Chili in
her war with Spsin. He says that all
the mysterious details, and novel inci
dents of his arrest published by the pa
pers are each and all of them fictions,
gotten up to excite curiosity, or pprhaps
dictated by less noble motives. He is
assured lhat Spanish agents were found
in the neighborhood of his house at the
lime the attempt was made to take him
io prison. II e says that at this time he
will not say a single word in regard to
the alleged proposal to fit out an expe
dition against lhe dominions of ihe
Queen of Spain, neither will he explain
the meaning of dispatches from the
Chilian minister at Washingten. At
the proptr time all this will come be

legality of my proceedings, and then
