The Ftnian excitement has about
died out the attack on Canada having
rhrv:i tlie weakness of the -Fenian
artr.y. Not weak in numbers, or in
pirit ; but they lacked tho resources
which is the Lack-bune to any nrmy
a country to buck them and furnish the
"wherewith" to conduct and aggressive
war. The If aders appear disappointed
that American born citizens should be
so lukewarm towards the liberty wbich
they are endeavoring to achieve. Can
ihey expect the liberty loving people of
America to feel the same interest in
their success that they would if the
great mass of the Fenians bad labored
to the end that liberty and Freedom
might be universal in our country ? A
ver" large majority of the Fenians
have labored nrduously against univer
sal Freedom inder our Government,
and yet affect to be sorely'disappointed
that anyone should be lukewarm when
they ask freedom from British tyranny.
Do uRto others as you would that
others should do unto you," is a rule
that it would be well for them to prac
tice a little more. There is undoubt-
edlo a strong feeling in the breast of
most Americans in favor of the success
of the Irish people in their entire free
dom, but-when the feeling is strongest
the -thought presents itself that these
ame individuals have labored hard to
pr3vent four millions of people in the
United States obtaining their freedom.
Let our Fenian friends work oa the
side of libertv at all times and in all
r!trf.e and thev will soon have a hold
upon the freedom loving people
America that catmot be loosened.
Who contributes the largest amount
towards raising the S2-5C0 that is await

HigUwav ItoHbery in Afclilson
At a late hour last evening Gen. W.
R. Penick received a dispatch . from
Col r. A. Thompson, of Rockport,
Atchison county, staling that on yester
day Mr. E. L. Clark, t f Atchi?oncoun
iy, while on the Tarkio Creek, was
stopped bv two highwaymen and robbed
of i-30,000 in money belonging to Col.
Thompson, and his brother F. M.
Thcmpson. It is certainly one of the
most daring and successful robberies
we have ever been called od to publish,
and it is sincerely to be hoped that r.o
effort will be spared by the officers of
the law to ferret out the robbers. Sf.

SL'IlVCYOJt CEXKUALs OF
FICE A.M riaATTSJIOUTII.
We find the following in the proceed
ings of the House of Representatives
on the 22d iiyt. as published in the
M is sourl Democrat of the2oih:
"Mr. Julian, from Committee on
Public Lands, reported back the House
bill to remove the office ,of Surveyor
General of the States of Iowa and
Wisconsin to Plattsmouth, Nebraska,
which was read a second time and
passed," . !
It will be seea by this that the bill
for tho removal of the office of Sur
veyor General of Iowa and Wisconsin
to this city has passed the House, and
we know of no reason why it thould
not pass the Senate and become a law.
The oftice of itseff is not of such vast
importance, but its location in our city
is of no mean consequence to us. It
will assist materially in advertising our
town the only thing we lack to make
us outstrip any city on the Missouri
river. This bill was introduced some
time since by Hon. P. W. Hitchcock,
our Delegate, and is the first time we
remeber having seen the name of Plalls
muJih mentioned in Congresionai prb
ceeedings. There appears to have
been," in years past, a studied effort on
the ptirt of. our leading men to igc.ore
this point, but we trust, and firmly be
lieve, that day is past. We see no ad
vantage to be gained by other localities
in pursuinga course, more e?pecially as
we ere likely to come up, Phccnix like,
whether we are assisted or not.
It may not be amiss, in this connec
tluni'lo say a word in relation to a feel
ing of jealousy which appears to have
existed . heretofore, and does yet to
some extent.between tV.e different towns
on the river in Nebraska. It has been
too much the ca;e that the people of
each town worked for the advancement
of their own locality alone, and would
ratJfer see n rival injured, even if the
irjury resulted in no benem to them.
than to see it prosper. INow we be
ieve i: to be the privilege and the duty
f the people of each and every town
or locality to work for the advancement
of their own particular locality; but
we can see no goad arising to them or
ny one else in preventing the pros-
erity of any other, locality. . Now, if
the principal cities in Nebraska can
only he'p each other that is, if one
particular point cannot secure a "good
thing," why, let them help their neigh
bors who have a chance to get it, it
wou!d be much better for all of us than
to be coutinuany pulling and hauling
against each other, as heretofore. If
Nebraska Ci'-' cannot get the B. & M.
R. R., ll their influential . men assist
by word and action to hasten its com
pletion to Plattsmouth ; and if PIa:ts
mouih cannot get the State Line road
et is help Nebraska City to it in any
unv we can. and so on to me enu 01

each other. What is a benefit to one

E ery Democrat in tho House of
Representatives, on Wednesday voted
against the reconstruction constiiutioattl
amendments. In doing so, we mail
suppose them to have been actuated by
certain principles, and it will be an in
teresting study to inquire what those
principles are, as indicated by this uni
ted vote of the Congressional repre
sentatives of the Democracy.
The firt clause of . the first of th
amendments declares that all persons
born or naturalized in the United States
shall bo citizens of the United States
an ! of States in which they reside. Is
not this a very jus: and democratic prin
ciple ? If the Democrats in Congress
are not in favor of It, where would
they draw the line, of discrimination
between those who, in their , opinion,
oujht to be and those who ought not
to be citizen? There are no longer
any slaves in this country. All human
beings Who walk on' American s-iil.
guilty of no crime, are free. Would
the Democracy deprive any class of
freemen of the rights and benefits of
citizenship ? If so, on what ground
would they justify so extraordinary n
measure of injustice and deprivation
towards one class of freemen,, that,
would not,' vviih " equal reason, apply
those to some other class ? If univer
sal freedom in a country like ours. means
anything, it means that all men are on
an equality, as regards civil rights
or, in other words,, that they are all
citizens. This being the fact, will
some of our Democratic politician ex
plain how, in justice, or with deiho-t
cratic consistency, any class of '.the
people now. inhabiting these States can
be denied the rights of citizenship? It
is presumed that, having voted agiinsi
this proposed constitutional declaration
of citizenship, the Democrats in Con
gress know why they so voted, and thu
they can explain their action. e
therefore wish that some ot them would
enlighten the country by givirtg n rea
sonble explanation if they cau, and
bus free themselves from the suspicion
hat they are still, astbey were in -old
lavery time?, Democrat merely in
name clinging to the shadow of a
principle, while ignoring its &ub;tance.'
I he second clause ot i:e nrst amend
meat, against winch all the Uen. ocrats
in Congress voted, embodies iht; prin-
circle that tno cinz?n or one &iato Mia.i
not be denied the rights of citizenship
in any other Slate. They nut have
some reason for opposing this very ju.-l
and democratic principle, but before
we can even imagine what that reason
is. if it be n justifiable one, we mast
wait to have it explained by thesa Dem
ocratic Keprespniatives or s une ot
their organs. Can they give an ex-

I'he second amendment against which i
all the Democrats in Congress voted, :
propjses to make the actual voting pop
ulation of a State the basis of its rep
reservation in Congress Being op
posed to this very just and far princi
ple, we must presume that the Demo
crats .of tho North are in favor of
having all the non-volirfg1 ex-s'aves in
the South who, Lefore beint: freed,
were only counted as five for one, here
after enumerated equaily with the
white voters, every colored individual
being counted as one man when appor
tioning the members of Congress, thus
almost doubling the number t'f So ith
ern Congresitnen, and giving ihe South
supreme power in tne legisi nive ue-
partment of the Uovernment, tne XNortn
receiving no compensating advantage
This may be regarded as justice by
the Democratic party, which worships
the Souih as its master, but.t'ie North
ern people, especially those who a not
Wtlieve that the South deserves to be
rewarded, instead of punished, for her
late treachery and extreme wickedness,
we fail to see it in that light. Un no
ground can the Democrats in Congress
justify their course in opposing tne
amendment, excel t that they desire the
political power of this: Government to
be centered in the rebellious South
and this is the kind of Democracy that
the leaders and organs of that party
intend hereafter to advocate before she
neorle of these States ?
The third of the amendment?, that
all the Democrats in Congress voted
a-rainst. propose? fb disqualify fiom
holdine anv office of trustor responsi-
bihty under the IMationai or otaie ov
ernments, all who. as officers in the
mihtary or civil services of thfer United
States, violated their cams ana ueuay-
ftd their country in her hour ot p?ru.
Wn must take it for granted that the
Democrats are in favor of elevating
this class of traitors and hfgrates to the
hih, honorable and lucrative positions
of ntitiKc trust under the Government
tfiev attempted to destroy, as a reward
for their perfiditv. If not, why da they
oppose the proposition to disqualify
them from holding such positions?
"And the fourth of the amendments
against which all tho Democrat
Com?ss voted, declares the Naiiona
debt a sacred obligation, and the rebel
debt just nodebtatall. Now if rebels
should vote against the amendment, we
would mtbe surpi ised, but when North
ern Democrats, who profess loynhy
and honor, vote thus, what can we ihink
of them ? Dj they mit prove them
selves to be just ns bad as the rebels
themselves? Do they not demonstrate
the fact that they have more sympathy
with the late Confederacy" and the
chiiAjations incurred fcy the wickedness
of treason, than they have for the Na
tional Government of the United States
and its obliga'ions of honor? We
wish some of them would try toexplain
their course so as to remove this ugly
Why did the Democrats in Congress
