As our citizens are anxious to know
everything that is said or done in re
lation to the above named road, we
give below a couple of extracts which
will, at least, show that the company
is not idle, and that they show no signs
of either allowing the road to stop or
to deviate from the original line.
The Afton Jievfille say s :

T-x Mr. i r.ei!.-'n, ciuef engineer
of tiie I?;trii;..gtnn Missouri River
Railway, one of the roads s'.relchini
out atrtis-? I'.nva to Omaha, advertises
in the Rut lifigton ILiw'teye to receive
proposals for gr iding, bridging, tieins;
and laying the track of the road sixty
six nines west of Chariton.
We clip the above item from the lo
cal column of the Omaha Republican.
We had supposed that journal was ia
dined lo be more just than this, and
we yet hop this may prove a state
ment made by the "local" through ig
norance of the real line of the above
named roid. While we are willing to
accord to Omaha alt the credit she de
sorves for bein a progressiva city,
and on!i whose future is bneht, we at
the same time trust sur Omaha nei Th
bors will manifest the same spirt to
wards us and oilier town- in Nebraska.
It is a well known fact that ihe wetttrn
terminus of the B.'Si. M. R. R. is lo
cated at this city, and we can see no
justice in our neighbors attempting to
mislead the public in regard to the
fnct. We do tot believe in the plan of
attaining greatness at the expanse of
juntice, and we cannot believe our
neighbor really intends to misrepresent
the truth. Such statements as the
above have the effect to mislead the
public in regard to our own city, while
it cannot bo cf aoy very great benefit
to Omaha. We hope the Republican
will correct the above, and thus do us an
act of justice which the citizens of this
city will know how to appreciate.
Omaha has the great Pacific R'ad,
and she shiuld not desire to swallow
up us little folks at one gulp. "E'lual
and exart just ice to nil men," and
towns also, should be the motro.
A Washington dispatch, of the 13th
siys: "The Sheriff has levied upon all
Johnson political clubs in Washington
for arrears cf rent." This looks amaz
ingly like Johnson stock was below
par. Is the "Johnson business" getting
"muddled" in the capitol city? It cer
tainly is throughout the nation.
CST The customs revenue of New
York for the eight months ending with
August, was 91, 402,136 20. This is
thirty millions over the revenue for the
same months in, 1S64; forty millions
over 1 S6 1.
IIIIISH.C TIIE I'LATTL.
We say, the people generally says
and the traveling public especially
says, bridge the Platte by all means
and bridge it where it will accommo
date the travel. It can be done, for a
sum not exceed inr $50,000. and then
the stream can be crossed at all times;
rvhile now there are weeks at a time
that travelers are compelled to cross
into Iowa and then back amm in order
tj avoid this urlv stream. If no bet
ter plan could be adopted we would
suggest that a company be formed, a
charter granted by the Legislature, and
the credit of the Territory loaned for
its erection. In this manner the work
can be done without any very great
burdwn to any one, and at the same
lime be made to pay a good profit to
the company. Has any one a better
plan? We merely suggest this in the
hope to have the subject canvassed and
something done this winter. Our col
umns are open for ihe discussion of
Dr. John Black says we "refused"
lo publish his Utter about Mr. Spur
lock. This is a mistake. We icld
him we would prefer not publishing it,
nnd gave him our reasons, which ap
neared taiisfactory to him, as he stiid
nothing mere about it, tut requej-teu u5
to say that he hud presented a letter
for publication which we declined, and:
f iinher requested us to as?in as a rea
son that the lettvr was too lengthy tor
our columns, or any other reason we
saw fit. IIu also lequested us to state
the subject mnticr of the loner wLieh
we did. We hope the Dr. will just
tnou-'h lo al:n;t that we did not refuse
to publish his letter. Ytt, we are nut
certain that i: makes any particular
difference whether he does or not. It
would not be the firit letter wy have
refused to publish, and may not be the
last. We do not believe a newspaper
is published, as a general thing, for one
person to abuse another through we
know the IIerall has seme other ob
ject in view, ir tne ur. mtc-nus to ex
cite our ire by calling us the "suppos
ed' editor of the- Hurald, he i reck
oning without his host. We do n-Jt
propose to be drawn into prostituting
our paper by retorting in kind, and
thu- furnishing subject matter for run
nii g a m ichine that de:ls in nothing
but personalities, and ne er has dealt
in anything else.
To the puppy who laps milk at the
Di's. heels and barks at his bidding,
vve would say that there are stintj
things which this community, as well
as ourself, considers "base," "vile" and
"mtpn;" and w? might add disgraceful,
humiliating, dishonest, and traitorous.
Shi.ll we name them? We woulJ pre
fer not doing so; but we do not "refiue.'
We dislike to throw mud with a profes
sional blickguard, but can do a pretty
good job at it vheu driven to the wall.
All we ask is that there be no more
wlrmpe-ring or whiuin if somebody or
somebody's "purp" pets hit.
Will the Omaha Republican be a lit
tie more careful about giving credits?
We notice an article in its issue cf the
14th on the Platte Bridge, taken from
the Herald, tut credited to a paper
having enly a nominal existence.
Please be a tri3e more prrticular,
Tiie Ale u Andy is afraid of.
On the occasion of the President's
infamous speech at Cleveland, he said,
'I woubl hold up the gaping, gushing
wounds of Seward, and say, "Why not
hanir Thad. Stevens and Wendell Phil
lips?" The unbridled atrocity of this
sentiment is without parallel, and is
beyond the ordinary forms of indigna
tion. Pennsylvania will answtr the
insult by promoting the brave old Thad.
Stevens to the Senate. It is for Mas
sachusetts to do her part by sending
Wendell Phillips to Congr.-.-s. After
this she can do no less.
This is not the first time our mod
ern Caligula has designated by name
the men of whom he is manifestly
'most afraid In his twenty second of
February speech, he declared Sumner,
Stevens and Phillips t-j be traitors and
rebels. Clearly, Mr. Ph Hips is as
formidable to him out of Congress as
either of the other two are in that body.
Clearly, therefore, the latter ought to
be reiuforoed by the former. The
men whom Andy fears are the men of
all others to meet him face lo face.
Let Sumner and Stevens be supported
by Phillips and Butler, by all means.

SALT C.tLLtt. ITEMS.
Messrs. Shields & Co. have got the
ferry across the Platte between the
mouth of Eikhorn Rnd the mouth of
Salt Creek in successful operatiou.
This will be a great convenience
to the people, not only of the SaltCre k
valley, but of the Dlkhorn valley. The
vast quantifies of salt that crystalizes
on the surface of the Basin, can now
be secured by the stock men of the
Elkhorn valley, with very little trouble.
The ferry will also be a great conven
ience to the citizens of the North side,
in bringing them within reach of ihe
fine fluuring mill and factory at Ash
land, while to the people of the Salt
Creek valley, it will s ave alout thirty
miles in the route to Omaha.
The citizens of Ahlnnd are building
a Masonic and Odd Fellows Hall over
the new School House at that . place
It is understood thai the Hall will be
us?d for holding Courts until the Coun
ty is able lo build a suitable Court
Mr. Johnson has opened a tai'or
shop at Ashland. The mechanical en
terprise that is centering at that point
speaks well for that section of the
country. In lown now contains a
fl'ouring mill, saw mil!, t-hingie ma-
chine, woolen factoiy, two blacksmith
shops, a wagon shop, a boot and si oe
store, harness shop, three stores, a
meat market, a hotel, tailor bhop &c,
nnd several other business houses ere
to be opened soon.
The triage across Salt Creek, four
miles ab ive Ashland, that was broken
down by a herd cf cattle last July, has
been rebuilt in a very substantial man
ner iiie nrsl team crossed yester.
The people of the South Platte val
ley are climoring for greater mail fa
cilities. There is no part of the Ter
ritory of equa' importance that has btei;
so sadly neglected in this regard.
Oi:r Increase of Population.
Mr. Elknah Watson, th- friend of
Benjamin Franklin, John Adams cud
Edmund Buike, died in 1S5S, in his
eighty-lifih year. In the year 1S15
he made some calculations in regard to
the future population of the United
States, which have so far been verified
in an astjnisning manner In 1S10
the population of the United Slates was
7,239.303. Mr. Watscn said :
The increas? from 1790, ihe first
census under the Constitution, has b- en
about one third at each census; admit
ting thai it will continue to increase in
the same ratio, the result
will be as
Th? actual figures of the three cen
suses followin" his estimate were writ
ten by Mr. Waison himself, the other
two were supplied from the census re
ports. The closeness of the estim ates
to the actual result.- is so sinking as to
justify belief in the correctness of the
President Johnson and
The following paragraph seems to
demand some sort of attention from
those it inculpates :
The Sandusky Register states that
in a speech in that cuy a few days ago,
the Hon. Joseph M. Root, late United
States District Attorney for Nerthern
Ohio, said he considered he was not
breaking official faith when he related
one fact in regard to the Administra
tion and the Fenian, which occurred
during the Canadian excitment. He,
as District Attorney, and Mar-hall
Bill, received instructions from Wash
ington to watch closely al! orgamza
lions, learn about the storage of arms,
&c, but in case cf any attempted ex
pedition from Cleveland, not to inter

was under way. But. said the ins'ruc

It is said that during the Morgan

being drawn op before the newly elect
ed Colonel, he ordered the advance in
the follow in? Buckeye vernacular:
"Look wild thar! tote your guns;

ES" The Montreal Witness says the
prevalence of in'empernnce among the
public men of Canada has long been
notorious, bur from the disngreeuble
ness of exposing men's faults, it has
seldom teen noticed in the press. Al
hit. however, the country has waked
up lo the dreadful reality, and Upper
Canada pipers teem with severe criti
cism on the subject. It is further
charged that during the Fenian raid
toiiiw of the Ministers were too drunk
at ihe critical moment to attend to im
portant matters connected with the po
litical defense. . .
