Kenosha, N. T., April 14, 1SG6.
W. T. Parcel, Esq. : Dear Sir :
I see in the Farmer's Club of you place
the subject of planting out trees is dis
cussed, and several kind of timber are
recommended. I never noticed the
Yellow Poplar recommended by them
My object in addressing you at this
time is to recommend to j'our club the
trial of Poplar. It is a tree that grows
as rapidly as any other, and I think
the eoiI of our Nebraska prairies is
well suited to their growth, and for
building timber I believe stands next to
pine. Were I engaged in farming I
would certainly try the experiment my
self; but as I am not, would wish to
recommend it to the members of your
club. I feel interested in anything
calculated to promote the interests of
Nebraska. I am not a member of
your club, but suppose hints from out
siders will receive such attention as
I am respectfully yours,
BEL A WHITE.
P. S. I would inquire if the Ada
mantine Brick Press recommended by
the New York Farmer's Club in the
New York Tribune, is not worthy the
attention of our farmers for making
W. T. Parcel: Ed. lgricnliural
Department : Can you or any of your
readers inform me how best to plant
Osage Orange seed so as to make
a good hedge ? Is it necessary to tcald
the seed? How deep ought they to be
covered ? Is it not best to raise the
plants in beds, and transplant them one
or two years old ? I am atified that
it will make a No. 1 fence when prop
erly set out and cared for, and that we
can fence our farms in that way cheap-
? and permanently. Will. not some
energetic man start a nursery to raise
plants? He would find a ready sale
at a fair price for all that could be
raised. And, Mr. Editor, the best in
vestment that could be made would be
for some one with capital and energy
to start a geod general nursery near
Plattsmoth ; it would be better than a
gold mine. The Farmer's Club call
ed attention to this a year ago and
pledged their support to'any oue en
gaging in the business. I trust that
the time is near at band when ve will
not find it necessary to send thousands
of dollars out cf the county every Spring
for what we might as well raise at
W. T. Parcel: Ed. Jlgricultueal
Department : I am pleased to see that
you take so much interest in the man
agement of your Department, and I
trust that your appeal for correspon
dence will be promptly responded to.
No rules that apply to the agriculture
of the East can be laid clown as appli
cable to our Territory ; therefore, we
are thrown upon our own resources,
and it becomes necesjary that our
farmers should have a medium for in
terchange of views and experience ;
nothing could be more useful and in

tical men from all parts of the Terri
The suggestions of "Farmer" about
Sheep Shearing under the direction of
the Farmer's Club are worthy of atten

steps may be taken by the Club at its
next meeting to secure that object ; and

thoroughly examine as to the most
profitable class of sheep for the Tet'
Will the editor of the Omaha Herald'

answers, give us some kind of an an

we will even wait until you can advise
with those of your party who are more
expert than you are in getting out of a
close place ; but we do insist upon
having an answer sometime, a 9 we
hare no doubt Andy Johnson is anx
ious to know what the Omaha Herald
thinks will be the effect of his policy.
Come, Doctor ; be a man, and give us
an answer. Your chances for getting
, into Congress are slim anyway.
COAL. IX CASS COU.TY.
I Cannot some steps be taken to thor
oughly test the question of coal in this
county. Indications of it have been
seen in almost every part of the county,
and in some localities it has been dis
covered, but not in quantities to justify
any individual in going to the expense
of procuring the necessary machinery,
etc., for a thorough examination. Ev
ery man in the county is interested in
having this question solved, and there is
scarcely a man who would not contrib
ute something towards it. We all know
that no other one thing would do so
much towards settling up our beautiful
prairies as the discovery of coal ; and
the all absorbing question is how this
to be done. All faiih have in its exist
ence here, but no one man cares about
going to the expense of testing the
matter on his own responsibilty. We
learn that the necessary machinery can
b had of the company low prospecting
in Otoe county, free of charge ; and
all we need is the funds ntcessary to
operate it. A sutiicient amount to
thouroughly prospect this county and
the adjacent Sait Creek country can be
raised by a special tax without raising
the tax any higher than was paid last
year. One mill on the dollar of taxa
ble property in this county would raise
a sufficient fund for this purpose, and
this long mooted question could be set
tled within a short time. Let our Coun
ty Commissioners be authorized to lay
this tax, by a ote of the people at the
coming election for State Officers, and
the assessment can be made the pres
ent season. What do the people of
Cass county say ; shall we give the
Commissioners authority to levy this
small amount of tax for this purpose ?
We would be glad to hear from some
of our citizens npon the subject, and
offer the use of our columns for that
purpose. What is done must be done
T. ,i rgument agams-i ounc
Government yet produced in fact the
only one that has had any weight with
the people is ihat it will increase the
taxes. Now, should this argument
prove falacious, we see no good reason
for any opposition to the move. r e
can hardly find a man in this county,
or elsewhere in Nebraska, who does
not say he is in favor of a State Gov
ernment if it will not increase his
taxes. This appears to be the bugbear
at which anti-State men are frightened.
This qui?tion is a simple matter of fig
ures, and can soon be decided by as
intelligent a people as the citizens of
Nebraska. We hear men paedicting
that "State" will be voted down, be
cause all the Railroad and Telegraph
men are going against it. Why is
this ? It is simply because under State
rule their property will be taxed, while
so long as we operate as a Territory
it i3 not taxed. Now, taking the high
est figures we have yet seen for the
extra expense of a State Government,
and we find that the revenue that
would be derived from taxes on one
hundred miles of Railroad . weuld pay
every dollar of it. Let our people look
the matter squarely in the face, and
not try to dodge facts merely because
they have . expresse(1 themselves as
opposed to State. There is nothing to
be gained by sticking to the wrong
side of a question for the sole reason
that you have said the "horse was six
teen feet high.''
XOW AX1 THEN,
It is vastly amusing to see how the
Democratic sheets of this Territory
cling to Andy Johnson's CDat-tail.
Like hungry beggars they gnaw such
bones as his speech to the Freedmen,
when he promised to be fheir Moses,
in silence ; but, when he throws a veto,
spiced with the inspiring sauce of
democracy 'tanglefoot' before them,
ye Gods, what a howl of satisfaction
goes up from their empty maws ! Poor
cusses ! they hope Andy will take them
out of the slough of despond before he
attends to the nigger ; but we reckon
Andy thinks more of "black" just now
than he does of the copperhead faction
that did its utmost to embarras the Gov
ernment when it was struggling to
maintain itself amoDg the nations of
the earth. The Omaha Herald is ready
to fall down and worship Mr. Johnson,
and prepared to eat Forney without
salt. In four months we will see this
theet heaping railings on the President
as intense as- its adoration is now.
Such is the consistency of the dead
democracy. When the President told
the people that clemency to truitors
might not prove mercy to the State,
and that treason should be made odious,
who hurled the fierce st denunciations ?
Why the leading organ of copper
headism in Nebraska ; edited by a
man who had been brought up and
pitted by Andrew Johnson. When
the President spoko kindly and en
couragingly to negro troops, who
writhed and spurted denunciations ?
Whj the Omaha Herald. And to-day
this ubiquitous press is fawning and
caressing Mr. Johnson, and covering
him all over with the filth' slime of its
.What is the matter with Morton, of
the Nebraska City JVncs i He cer
tainly must be suffering from a connip
tion fit he denies reason and common
sense to every body who differs from
him. He abuses Senator Harlan, Gov
ernor Saunders, Chief Justice Kellog,
and every one else who differs from
him on the question of State. Why
does he not pilch into Bill. Little, of
Omaha ? He too is for State. And he is
only one of a host of talented Demo
crats who earnestly favor and labor for
State Organization. We should not
wonder if his ancient friends, and per
haps his new ones from Price's raid
ers, would be obliged, while in conven
tion, to appoint a commission de tunat
ico inquirendo on his case. He is about
as fine in his language as Petruchio,
and nodoult believes that if he swears
the moon's made of green cheese every
body will echo cheese! Pshaw! if
the conductor of a public journal can
produce no better arguments r.gainst
State Government than such sensless
tirades as this inan Morton digracea his
sheet with, he had better hire some
school-boy to do it for him.

have been proclaimed, by President
Johnson, well and loyally disposed, a
profession of loyalty like the following
which we take from a recent number
of the Charleston South Catolinan, may
be of interest ! .
"Is it supposed by the North that the
issue of the war has had the slightest
effect in disturbing any Southern man's
faith or convictions as to the rights of
the States in relation to the Federal
Union, as entertained by all the lead

yielding to the power of the United
States Government, and proclaiming
itself submissive in future to that Gov
ernment, the opinion of the South is so
changed as now to prompt their prefer
ence.of .that Government over that
which they decreed for themselves in
the establishment of the Southern Con
federacy ?" ' """
The following are the resolutions
adopted by tLe Territorial Union Con
vention, on the 12th, inst. :
Resolved, That we, the delegates to
this Conveniion.representing rhe Union
Party of INebraska, are in favor of im
mediate State organization, for tho
First That in our judgement, it
will tend to promote the speedy settle
tnent of the Territory, and to develop
its material growth and prosperity.
Second That it will place under the
control of the people our School Lands,
and thereby largely contribute lo re
duce taxation for the support cf our
Common School system.
Third That it will enable Nebras
ka to select ihe Public Lands which
the General Government has proposed
to grant to her for a Slate University,
Agricultural College, State Buildings,
and for the developement of our min
eral resouces, before all the valuable
lands within our limits shall have been
absorbed by foreign speculators, and
by the locatioiof Agricultural College
Script issued to other States.
Fourth That the increased revenue
which may be derived from the taxa
tion of the property of foreign corpo
rations, from which no revenues have
heretofore been received would more
than compensate for the increased ex
penses incident to Siate Government.
Resolved, That while we are in favor
of this measure for the reasons above
assigned, and for many others which
we might mention, we do not regard
the question of State organization as
in any proper sense a party issue, but,
on the contrary, as a question lo be
decided by each individual citizen in
accordance with his best judgement.
Submitted as it was by the joint actiou
of Republicans and Democrats, we re
gard it as purely a question of local
policy, which every voter must decide
for himself, without regard to his po
litical antecedents or attachments.
Resolved, That the party which has
triumphantly vindicated and sustained
the Government, and carried it safely
through four years of sanguinary war,
waged by the enemies of civil and
religeous liberty, owes it to its cherish
ed principle and to humanity lo secure
liberty and civil rights lo all men under i
general law. . ' !
ourselves to render a hearty and earn
est support lo ihe nominees of this Con
Democratic Magnanimity. The
generosity of the Democratic party to
President Johnson can never be suni-
ciently admired. They have express
ed entire willingness, and even on ar
dent desire he should at one bring is
sue between himself and Congress to
the arbitrament of arms. With the
impartiality of those who have nothing
to lose, they exhort him to strike the
blow, and informs him that he cannot
now avoid it without bringing an impu
tation on his courage. Like Sir Lucius
O'Trigger, they think "it is a very
pretty quarrel as it stands," if they can
only bring their Mr. Bob Acres John
son to the scratch. Cincinnati Gazelle

has given rise to unlooked for compli
cations, it had no sooner reached va
rious headquarters in the South than'
both from commanding officers and-
agents of the freedmens bureau, dis
patches poured in upon authorities
here, these indicated inauguration of
very unpleasant stale of affairs between
civil and military authorities thjough
out the South, result has been that it
was found necessary to send orders and
circular both from Grant's and Gen
Howard's headquarter affirming that
the proclamation did not change rela
tions between civil and military author
ities in the least.
Not Satisfied. Our Democratic
friends are hnrd to please ; heretofore,
when we have placed in nomination
any of the Federal officers, they have
manifested a great deal of indignation,
because the people the rank and file
were neglected, but now when our
entire State ticket is composed of men
who are not now, and never have been
Federal officers, these sympathetic
democrats are entirely overcome with
grief, in fact they cannot be comforted
because the Federal officers have been
left out in the cold. Nebraska City
