n. R- COMECTIOT.
Many of our people do not realize
that within one month from now we
will have direct Railroad communication
with Chicago and the east; yet such is
the fact. The North Western road is
now completed to within twenty miles
of Council Bluffs, and the C, B and St.
Joe. Road is within three milei of that
city. When ;hese two gaps are filltd
which will he in less than thirty days
we wi'l hve from the opposite side
- or ine river, aireci rommunicaiieu wmi
the east. Contracts have already been
entered into to have goods delivered in
this city over that line. Work is to be
commenced on the Platte country road
on the 17ih of this month, and before
another winter we will have Railroad
connection with St. Joseph and St.
Louis. These roads, to be sure are
not of the mine importance to us that
the B. & M. R. R. will be; but they
are not to be despised. They give
a csmmunication which is nearly
equal to that of any other town on the
river in poict of convenience, if tlny do
not serve to attract the fame attention
towards us that they do to other towns
As to the B St M. R. R , there is no
question. That it will be built to this
city and hence west, no one pretends
to doubt; and the only quettion in re
gard toil is the time. We have every
reason to believe that work will be
commenced at this noint earlv in the
Coming- season, and will be pushed for
ward wi;h nufficient vigor to be ready
for operation by the time the Pacific
road reaches the heavy trade of the
east. Then again, the road coming up
this side of the Missouri will probably
terminate at this point, giving us roads
leading in far different directions one
directlv easl. one north by way of
Council Bluffs, one south on the Iowa
side, one directly west, and one direct
Jy south through Nebraska.
TUG DRIDUH QUESTION
Mb. Editor. I am glad top that
the. nro Dos iu on la bridge yae'x lane nv
er meeis with such general favor. The
en!y difference of opinion seems to be
whether the bridge shall be "tree or
"toll," or whether it shall be built by
a company to whom the credit of the
Territory shall be loantd. or whether
the Territory shall build it and make it
a free bridge. Many persons, f jr
whom I entertain a very high opinion
favor the last proposition. I destru to
state some objections to the free bridge
1st, I am opposed to the Territory
encaginir in a system of internal im
provements, as it opens toe door to in
numerable frauds, and will entail upon
us nn enormous public debt. It must
be borne in mind that it will not be
possible to stop at one, or even two
bridges across the Platte, for. as mo-
illation increases along tne river
bridges would be a necessity; and at
day not far distant, every twenty miles
of the Piatte will have a bridge. How
important then, that we should com
mence this work upon correct pricci
pie; for if the Teiritory builds a bridge
for Cass, Saroy, Douglass and Otoe,
will not Saunders, Lancaster and Dodge
ask the same favor ? Most assuredly
they will, and so will every county ly
ing upon the river, rather will they not
demand it as a right? Most assuredly
they will. 1 only ask tax-ravers to
consider this carefully.
2d, Such is the nature of the Platte
river, that a bridge, I care not how
it may be constructed, will need con
siani attention and close watching to
prevent iu Deing damaged or destroyed
Will any one devise a plan Ly which it
can be done without being a constant
tax upon the whole Territory.
I knoir that monopolies are very un
popular, anu deservedly so, out even a
monopoly is not so burdensome, when
it fr.lls only on those benefited by it as
a system that taxes thousands for the
benefit of the few. I venture to say
that not more than one to every hun
dred of the citizens of Nebraska will
cross the bridge. Now is it just that
the ninety nine should be taxed heavily
in order that one should be enabled to
cross free. It need not be an oppres
sive monopoly, and I am sure that it
will not be. I hope that those who dif
fer with me will present their plans,
and let us decide upon that which is best
calculated to accomplish the desiied
end. Trusting that through full and
free discussion of the various plans, we
may arrive at a dt'trmlnn'.j-.n at to 4
which ii best, I will leave the iubject
for the present, but will probably have
more to say in the future.
Cass Co. N. T., Dec. 17. 1866.
Mr. Editor. In the Herald of
Dec 12ih. I notice an article advising
fanners to send South for seed wheat.
and in a paragraph you call attention to
the communication by , endorsing the
opinion of the writer.'adding, thatevery
farmer knows that ueed produced in a
warmer climate is absolutely necessary
to keep the product) to a first class
Although called a farmer, I do not
know such to be the fact. Allow me to
ask how you know the theory advocated
by to be the true mode of successful
farming. If, as seems taken for grant
ed, that every farmer knows the thing
to be true in fact, there would be no
need of discussing the subject. But my
experience in farming does not sustain
the proposition. Allow me, briefly, to
give some reasons why I should differ
in opinion, both with your correspond
ent, aud yourself, Mr. Editor.
First, these farmers need a change
of seed wheat occasionally, and always
from a region where a less number of
days are required to perfect a crop than
in the region where we propose to sow
the new kind of wheat or other grain.
Most farmers think they know that
wheat ripening in the earliest part of
wheat harvest is the plumpest and
heaviest, and always the least liable to
be injured by scab or rust; now it seems
to some farmers, that where wheat is
brought from a region one hundred
miles south, the sea.-on there, beinsi
longer than here, grain from that re
gion, if sown here would require the
length oi season to perfect the grain
here as further south, and hence, would
ripen late, and would be liable toshriv
el, indeed, 1 never knew late ripening
wheat as good as that ripening in the
ear'v part of harvest. But my sheet
is full and I must c'ose. Now Mr
Editor, if this is worth your notice and
there is room in lh Herald, you are
at liberty to publish as much as is ac
