eral btlief that it could not be kept up
nure than two or three months, but we
thoii 'ht diUerent. Accordingly, cuthe
second dayf January, LSGG, we issu
ed the first number of the Daily Her
ald, since which time, it has been a
constant visitor to its patrons, not miss
ing a single day except Sundays and ihe
l.nliihivs. We have at limes found a
dull and heavy task to furnish our read
with interesting matter, but have never
fullered in our endeavors to do so
We propose starting out cn the new
year with increased hope and renewed
vitror, and once more thank cur pal
r.irn fur the rast and ask ot them a
ro,.ti:.uatioa of iheir coi.fidence and

i:,ess than can be estimated. Our pro-
gress during the past year, with all the
.iron rent anaihv in business, is a cuar-
antee of what we may expect when
things brighten with the future that
awaits u. Our city ha kept steadily
on in iIvj march oi
f improvement. There
has been no wi'd-ercitemeat, but every
thin" has boen kept steadily along in
the track that leads to permanent great
tics. Churches, residences, stores,
warehouses, etc., have been built, side- to any country in which they live. We
walks have been constructed, streets hear the cry, "ho ! for Nebraska," coin
graded, bridges built, and in fact, all ing from all parts of ihe east; and we
kitids of improvements have been for- think we are safe in saying that, from
warded during the past year with great-
er rapidity than ever before. In the
- country the advance has beeu Btill
trrcater than ia town. New farms
have been opened, old cues repaired
and extended, fine farm houses built,
stock improved by the introduction of
better blood, end for the first lime in
the history of Nebraska, our farmers
have the gratifying knowledge that
their products are sough' fjr in the
markets of the east at figures advanced
above those cilered for the products cf
any other locality. We have had, dur
ing the past year, three new mail routes
es'al 'iskfcd between Pia tsmouth and
the settlements west of us; one running
to Weep'ng Water Falls, by way of
E ghtMiia Grove, one to Ashland, the
County Seat of Saunders Cjunty, thence
up Salt Creek through Lancaster, the
County Seat of Lancaster County, to
Beatrice in Gage County; and ihe oth
er through Ashland to Columbus, on
the north side of Platta and on the U.
V. llailrcad. These thing all show
the growing importance of the town
and country, and are so many argu
ments in favor of commencing the new
year with a renewed determination to
"press forward to the victory that is sure
to be curs if we have the courage lo
battle against apparent obstacles, and
not be disheartened al temporary ad
versities. We believe that enterprise
and perseverance will overcome all ob
stacles; and we have the best of evi
dence that the people of Nebraska, and
particularly of this portion of it, have a
good stock of those necessary ccrnodi
ties. Trusting and believing that the
year 15G7 will be an eventful year in
the history of our progress, we w sh all
mankind, and especially the patrons of
the Herali, a Happy New Year.

The advertising which Nebraska has
received, in various ways during the
last yearPhas had the effect to set peo
pie to thinking about this country; and
aa a natural consequence, ihe more they
think about il and the more they learn
cf it, the stronger grows ihe desire to
emigrate. The excursionist; over the
Pacific Ittti'road have generally report-
td verv truthfully in regard to our
country; the wheat crop has done wen
ders in the way of convincing people
that we had the best soil in the known
world; and the constant sending of the
Territorial papers lo frieuds and ac
quaintances east has served lo show
them our everyday life. These, and
many other things, have turned an irn
mense tide of thought towards Nebras
ka, and that too of th- right kind of men

It strikes me that this course will be

If the Legislatuae should adopt a

Which Way? In a late number cf
the Golden City Transcript, we notice
that G. W., its reverend editor, pitches
into the President's Message. This
show's which way ihe wind bljws, and
the tendency to which all things thither
wards are lend'ng. Another Radical
paper thus throws its banner to the
breeze. We should have thought from
the weight of influence which the Gov
ernor controls over the Transcript, that
it would at least have been quiet on
Natioaal topics if il could not support
the Administration. Policy we should
thick would dictate quietude on the
National issues. Denvtr Gazelle.
Thj above shows exactly how much
"principle" thf-re is in the course of the
Administration papers. Thsy would
support A. Johnson's policy because
somebody else who was supposed to
control a small amount of patronage
did, and are surprised that others do
not. I hey will learn directly that ihe
American peopld are acting upon some
thing more substantial than policy
they are acting from j rinciIe.

whoh'td ia 1' rrari, was sj miserably
poor, that his 1 ib-jr from day to day
fcarely kept his family from starvation;
and he was unalle to give even a small
dowry to his p:evy daughters. It was
not thought prupt-r to marry without a
dowry; and thus the young girls,
ihounh each l.nd an admirer, were com
pelled to rema.n .-it.ghi. Their father;
however, went every nurning to the
shrine to pray to his patron saint. St.
Nicholas, that he would work a miracle
to reheve him from his distress.
One of hi nearest neighbors, a rich
merchant, who chanced one day to hear
his simple petition, ridiculed the idea of
his expecting the Saint to take care of
his daughters, and recommended him
to choose a patron saint who would be
able to do something for him. "Mine,''
ho said, "is ihe Jew liuonajuto; he
lends 'me money at two per cent a
month, and if you know how to manage
you may mak' four w ith it. He is not
so deaf as Saiat Nicholas."
The poor man was shocked at this
impious speech, and assured the mer

It was now Christmas day, when the
meichant and the Jew settled up their

surprise, he ordered one of the ducks

the inside, and sewed them up, then
sent the duck to the merchant as a
'1 he merchant's wife, who shared the
ctmmon prejudices against the Jews,
declared she would not touch the duck,
and the rich man resolved to sell it.
When Giraldi passed on his way from
church, his neighbor, as usual, banter
ed him on his devotion, showed him
the Christmis gift his patron had sent
him, and taur ted him with the stolidity
of Saint Nicholas, who could not even
s-nd him a piece of bread. Finally,
he offered the duck for a dollar, and to
wait for payment, as he knew Giraldi
to be perfectly honest. The shoemaker
carried the duck home, and when he
carved it for his Christmas dinner, and
the three hui.i'red ducats fell out, his
firt exclamation was "Praise to Saint
When he recovered from his surprise,
he would have taken the money back,

The following questions frcm a gentle

that Nebraska is attracting attenticn in
all parts of the country. We learn
that a large number of persons intend
emigration from Mississippi to Nebras
ka early in the spring, and these were
asked f a resident acquaintance here
in order that they might obtain as mu ch
correct information as possible before
starting. We have asked of him the
privilege cf publishing them and an
swering them for the reason that thou
sands of others, in different parts of the !

1. We have a railroad within three
uiles of Piattsmouth, on the opposite
side of the river, which is completed to
within three miles of Council Bluff.
The Chicago and North Western Road
is completed to within fifteen miles of
Council Bluffs on the east. Both the
above roads will be completed within
four weeks, when we will be directly
connected with Chicago. The C. 11. Sc
St. Joe. Road, (the one mentioned on
the opposite side of the river) is being
rapidly pushed through to St. Joseph
and will be completed inside cf twelve
months, giving us direct communica
tion with St. Louis and the South. The
Burlington & Missouri River Railroad
is now contracted ta within eighty miles
of thjs city, snd will prolably be pushed
through to this city next season. Ii
will be irrimediatsly pushed through
from here west to connect with ihe Pa
cific road, thus giving us a direct line
east and west. Besides these roads,
the Atchison Road wi!l be buili on this
side of the river within a few years,
making ibis city its northern terminus.
These are the roads in which Piatts
mouth is directly interested. The Un

300 miles west fro-n Omaha, and the

Cottonwood timber, however, can be
