completely disrupted in November, and

freedmen and discharged colored sol
diers arrested as vagrants in the streets

II A III) TO DO.
Apparently our Omaha cotemporaries
have great difficulty in digesting the
railruad news as it affects this section
of country. We see notices about U.
P. II. R. in every is.-ue; but ne'er a
word about B &. M. R. R. Ain't they
very heavy on Nebraska as a whole!
President Johnson has vetoed the
Freedmen's Bjreau bill. His veto mes
sage is said to be elaborate, and he
takes the position that the bill is uncon
stitutional. Au excitiug time may be
expected in Congress. The probabili
ties are that the bill will be passed over
I: is a well known fact that the entire
emigration from the northern and mid
dle States to the gold mines of the west,
passes up the valley of the great Platte
river. This is the great natural high
way to Colorado, Idaho, Utah, Montana
and the Pacilis States, over which there
is probably more travel thaa any other
one line in the world. In traveling this
route, the most direct course that caa
be taken is to cross the Missouri river
at the mouth of the Platte (Plattsmouih),
and take a direct course up the valley.
Every mile that is traveled out of this
line is a mile lost, and must be re-traveled
before the journey is completed.
Take a look at the map and see if we
are not correct.
The Press corrects us in the statement
we made that it wanted the Capital lo
cated on Salt Creek. The position it
takes on the question is that the Capital
should be located where the people
want it, and advocates that now is the
time, in connection with the vote onlhe
constitution, for them to give an expres
sion on the subject. "The apology is
sufficient" we stand corrected, and
endorse the views of the Pvss as em
inently sound and just. Let the people
vote upon this question at the same
time with the constitution, and thus set
the matter at rest.
Ollt SIMIIXG TIIADE.
It is gratifying to us, and to every
citizen of this part of the country, to
see the alacrity with which people are
preparing for doing a heavy business
the soming season. It looks encourag
ing to the future of our thriving city 10
see every one taking hold as though
they meant to do something; and we
fully believe that thjir most sanguine
expectatiens of business will be realized.
We have here ihe best and surest local
trade of any part of the west, having a
country settled by thrifty and energetic
farmers, who have the means and the
will, as a general rule, to live at home."
Our prospects for a heavy western trade
during the coming seajon are far better
than any previous year. Already trains
are loading and starting westward, and
we hear of large numbers of men who
piopose trading between this point and
ihe western mines. Let every citizen
of the place but make an effort to thai
end. and we doubt not the trade of the
city can be made more than double
what it was last season. Our growing
importance as a commercial point is
turning the attention of eastern capital
ists in this direction, and before anoth
er winter comes we confidently expect
to see our city looked upon as the most
favored point in the west. All that is
needed lo insure to us the proud posi
tion of the leading city or. the Missouri
river, is to let our location and advanta
ges be known. We have long- lain in
thb dark, and allowed other points with
less natural advantages to outstrip us in
the race for prosperity; and now it is
lime we were 'up and doing." Send
papers, write letters, and use every
means at your command lo let the peo
ple and capital of the east know that
this is a place at which they can make
it profitable to locate.
Not content with printing me
morials at Omaha for nobody to sign,
praying the Legislature to frame a
Constitution, private enterprise, dream
ing of Congressional honors, has footed
the bill to print said Constitution at
Omaha and now Omaha is crying
out, "Organize clubs to carry the State
Question!" Pshaw! such open defiance
of common political decency is, to say
the least of it, very unbecoming. Who
are these political aspirants that are
willing to sacrifice the people lo obtain
office? Let the country know them,
that they may be judged according to
STATE IX THE C OUXTItV
Platti Bottom, N. T
February 16th, 1S66
Sir We farmers out here feel con
siderable interest in the State Question,
and as you have invited everybody to
give you their news, saying your col
umn were open for that purpose, 1
hope you will not lake it amiss in my
writing these few lines.
1 have been conversing with some of
my neighbors, and we all agreed that
our experience wis to the effect that
State Government always increased
taxation. In support of this fact many
of us brought forward tho experience
of the past, and one in particular stated
that while he had paid only S3 lo $3.50
per quarter section for hi:; land lax in
Kansas as a Territory, that it increased
to S-4 the first year it became a State,
and subsequently lo S32, and that the
land did not increase any iu value, for
he got no more for it when sold than
he had been offered while Kansas was
Now, sir, in a country like this, where
there is so much unoccupied land still
owned by the United States, it seems
to me that the inducement held out by
the friends of State Government, thai
our lands would increase in value, is
not supported by the facts, for I believe
that settlers would prefer buying land
of Uncle Sam at S 1 ,U-5 as long as they
could get it at that, instead of paying
us more, just to make good the predic
tions of those false prophets who are
trying to force Stale Government onus.
The same holds good in reference
to our School Lands, and I think, sir,
that those gentlemen who are so fierce
to make a State of Nebraska would no
more think of buying school lands at
at $5 per each acre, while they could
get all they wanted at Sl.25, than you
or I would.
We, up here, thought this State Gov
ernment questicnhad been settled for
a time, at least, in lS'34 but now it
looks very much as if some gentlemen
who are more anxious about office than
they are for the welfare of the farmers
of Nebraska, having iosl faith in ihe
action of the people oa this question,
and not satisfied with the unanimous
verdict of the freeholders of the Ter
ritory against State, have determined to
take the matter into their own hands
and force it through at all hazards. I,
sir, for one, hope the farmers of Ne
braska will rise in their might and vote
down this measure, for it bears on its
face a defifn:o of our voice in 1SG4,
and such an amount of promise that can
never be realized, that it behooves all
farmers here lo work together against
it. W. C.
Glendale, Feb. 15, 1S66.
Editor Herald: Perhaps your
readers, although very sensible that
yesterday, the 14th, was a rather cold
day, are not a ware that it was the cold
est day in Nebraska eince settled by
white men. The thermometer at 7 a
m., 12 at 2 p. m., 7 and at 9 p. m ,
17, gave a mean for the day of 12 de
grees. This was some 8 deg. colder
lhan December 3lst, 1S64, the next
coldest day for ten years past.
It is less painful to bear a tempera
ture of 35 deg. below z?ro, in a still
atmosphere, than at zero with what may
be termed a fresh breeze, or wind mov
ing 12 miles per hour. And when we
consider that on the 14th, with a mean
temperature of 12, we had a wind of
some 40 miles, we see, as we mosi
sensibly felt, that it was a cold day.
As severe a day as we had previous
lo the 14th was the 10th of January.
1S64 the day on which our neighbor,
David Jardine, froze to death. The
thermometer was 10 deg. above zero,
a comparatively warm day, but for ihe
wind of some 50 ntiles per hour which
mad it excessively severe.
This mornicg, l5ih, as also on the
morning of ihe 7th of Decemter, 1SG4,
the mercury reached the lowest point
here, viz. 32 deg. below zero; yet neith
er of these mornings were very uncom
fortable, oa account of the very sii.l
atmosphere. Yours truly,
A. L. C.
P. S. If you should find either your
self or readers likely to become too
warm in discustinj any of the exciting
questions of the day, I will select a few
more items from my observations on
the weather, which may exercise a cool
ing influence. C.
New York, Fib. 19. The World's
Washington dispatch says Hon. J. L.
Hatch is here at the request of the
Ways and Mean.i committee to confer
with them in regard to ihe Canadian
reciprocity treaty. The British Minis
ter is still in conference with the com
mittee relative lo the adoption of some
plan which will be mutually advantage
ous to both governments.

of Aldermen yesterday appointed a

TO THE DAILY HERALD.
New Orleans, Feb. 16. Indica
tions continue of a heSvy emigration to
Texas from the northern States in the
spring. Below the town of Walo, ou
the Brazos, in central Tezas, a large
proportion of the plantations are al
ready occupied by these new comers.
The owners of lands have dirided them
and rented to poor people, whe are go
ing into cotton plarimg. There are
400,000 acres of the very choicest aud
richest cotton lands, on the Brazos riv
er alone, that still remain untouched by
the plow. The Baton Rouge Advocate
says that not one-third of the tillable
laud in that section, and along the coast
in that immediate vicinity, will be put
in cotton this year.
Brownsville correspondent of the7th
reports Gen. Mendez, wiih 2,000 men
had taken possession of the roads lead
ing from 'J apico.
The French garrison, 100 strong,
was re-enforced by 200 and ordered
to attack the Liberals. The latter
formed an ambuscade and cut off and
massacreed 60 of the French advanced
guard. The remainder of the French
troops, 500 strong, renewed the attack,
forcing the liberals to relreai closely
pursued for several hours. Mendez
and almost his entire staff officers are
reported killed. Liberal lo.3 reported
at ooO, and French loss at 100.
New York, Feb. 17 The Tri
bune's Washington special says Mr.
Henry Rives Pollard, of Richmond,
having invoked the interference of the
President in order to secure the rescind
ing of Gen. Terry's recent order sup
pressing his paper, the Richmond Ex
aminer, for the expression of disloyal
sentiments, yesterday visited General
Grant, before whom he laid his griev
ances, and of whom he asked permis
sion to resume the publication of his
paper. Gen. Grant, after listening
patiently to Pollard's representations,
quietly informed him that he would re
ceive any written communication ad
dressed to him from Richmond, but that
he could not at present give a decision
in the matter. The Examiner was
suppressed in pursuance of positive or
ders from Gen. Grant, who announces
his intention cf suppressing all news
papers in the south which have the au
dacity to come out in similar bold de
nunciations of the Government.
A gentleman just returned from Rich
mond reports that orders prohibiting the

requisition whenever this uniform ap

New York, Feb. 17. The Her
ald's Vera Cruz correspondent of the
1st ins:, says that large quantities of
military stores are still arriving from
France. An Imperial train, valued at
G5C,000, was recently captured ly the ,

The report of the Commission ap
pointed to investigate the Bagdad affair
shows conclusively that no U. S. army
officers were connected with it; Gen.
Crawford is charged with being its in

New York, 17th. Three Spanish
naval steamers which have arrived in
our harbor from Havana within the
past two days, are now lying off the
15attery. They came here with sealed
orders which cannot be opened until the
vessels have received a thorough over
hauling in this port.
It is supposed they will cruise in this
vicinity for the protection of Spanish
commerce against privateers.
New York, Feb. 19. A convention
of the Orangemen of Canada having
been perfected to be held in Ottawa
during the present month, Mr. Killian,
of the Fenian Brotherhood, addressed
a communication to one of the Alder
men of that town, urging the impro
priety of such a gathering at the pres
ent time, and representing it as calcu
lated to do much harm in reviving the
old hatred between catholic and protes
tant Irishmen, and leading to additional
A dispatch from New Orleans an
nounces that Gen. R. Clay Crawford,
the Bagdad fillibuster, has escaped from
the fort in which he was confined; his
confederate has been liberated on pa
role. Gen. Sheridan stales that everything
is going well on the Rio Grande.
For one vacancy in the old pay de
partment of ihe regular army there are
about 500 applicants.
The Fenian Congress at Pittsburg is
being largely attended by delegates
from all sections of the country; Presi
dent Roberts and Gen. Sweeney are in
New York, Feb. 19. Of General
Lee's interview with the Reconstruction
committee the World's dispatch says he
was quite reticent, and did not volunteer
any remark beyond the proper answers
addressed to him. He said, so far as
he had opportunities of learning, the
people of Virginia had accepted the
result of the war in good faith, and
were anxious for a restored amity in
the Union. When pressed by a ques
tion he is said to have intimated that the
feeling for the Union was much strong
er just after the close of the war lhan
now, for there appears to him to be
some impatience among the people that
the men who had been identified with
the war in the South should be prevent
ed from representing the State in
Congress. He declared that there was
a disposition to treat the freedmen kind
ly, as well for their interests as the
while people. He expressed a decided
hope that the Government might en
dure for all ume, and regarded the
course of President Johnson and Gen.
Grant toward the South as liberal and
Cincinnati, Feb. 19. The Mari
etta & Cincinnati 11. R. Co. have com
pleted their track from Loveland lo
Cincinnati. The first train passed over
the road Saturday.
New York, Feb. 19 The Herald's
Washington special says the resignation
of Secretary Harlan is the current topic
of conversation. He is known to have
expressed to a western Congressman
of his political persuasion, his intention
not to remain much longer. Those
who are in the most eligible places for
understanding the Presdent's mind
upon the subject assume that he is only
awaiting the ostracism of Tennessee as
a State, which is evidently the plan of
ihe Reconstruction committee, to invite
such Cabinet members as are in known
accordance with lhat decisiou to vacate
New York, Feb. 20. The Mora
vian with dates from London of the
9th has arrived. The Times says in
closing the special commission for the
Fenian ttials at Dubliu the judges high
ly eulogized the proceedings. Gunion
and other jurors claimed thai the whole
course adopted had been worked with
moderation, and would be fully approv
ed by the country. Three hundred
soldiers aud seven civilians had been
The Times also publishes a transla
tion of a letter from the late Spanish
Admiral, written just before his sui
cide, to a friend in Europe. It shows
that he was overwhelmed with the idea
of having inflicted the calamity ot war
on two friendly nations. This letter
will convey to you the news of my
death the errors of judgment and not
of will with which I have unfortunately
embarrassed the government of my
Queen, cannot have any other expia
tion. I have been unjust and preju
diced against Tanera request him lo
pardon me. His proceedings were safe
and showed it is to the interest of our
country to embrace the first moment to
make peace with Chili.
New York, Feb. 19. The Herald's
Washington special announces that a
treaty has been entered into between
France and Austria for the immediate
withdrawal of the French military
forces from Mexico, and their replace
ment by Austrian troops to the number
of one hundred thousand. Austria pro
poses lo raise these soldiers by volun
teering in Belgium and Hungary, and
transportation for them and" tne neces
sary stores until they are landed in
Mexico are ta be provided by Napo
leon. The Herald's El Paso correspondent
says a great and very favorable change
in the feelings of the people of that
section has taken place towards Presi
dent Juarez. He entertains little fear
of the advance of Imperialists on the
present seat of Government, and is
contemplating a military expedition to
wrest Chihuahua from 'them. They
have aboul eight hundred troops at that
place fortifying it. The French sol- ,
diers of the Imperial army in that re
gion are said lo be generally disgusted
with lhtr present service, and many
cf them hav e deerted, crossed to Tex
as, and enlisted in the American army.
