WEDNESDAY, JAN. i;s: thk sct i:ais. We Je.-ire tipoa iliis occ.iiorj the rl se of i'i-j year lcGG and the con. pie lion of vo!ii,::e one cf the Daily IIeu- T . t;i return our thanks to those who hiive so colly iiooi by us during thu pa:l year in our efforts to put forth a paper thai would be a credit to the lo- taliiv and rtilett the enterprise o our rnipna. A littla more than a than a ypar induce the ago, we set out trying to people of Plattsmouth to g.e support to a frnall daily, promising thc-ni Uiai we would do all in our power U give them their money's worth. We found nearly all anxious to have a daily pa- Thursday after the first Monday in Jan per published in the place, but they nary, which comes on the lO.h. Let were almost as unanimous in ue be lijf thai it could not be made a penna nenl thing. It appeared to be the gen- 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 liberality rality. We have now every reason t'jbelisve that the year 1S67 will wit nes greater progress in this locality, and in all Nebraska, than any year tn sofi'piripiit nf ihr Terri'orv. ' . . , , , , i , ,i a i c; T hre 13 scarcelv a djubt that the busi ' i iaess of our city vi t'l fl.n .1 I 1 UD IliUl L LltUll doubled durin? the comir.c year. We do not advance the idea because '"the wish is father lo the thought, nut ue cause w2 think facts warrant ihe belief Wre k now the immigration will be large. and that among the new comers there will be many who control no inconsider- able amount of capi at. And then, there is every probability that work will be commenced on the 13. & M It. Ilailroad at this point during ihe com- t - r ivhii'h n'.-tis will five a Ji,!3 i. , ........ c rrcater impetus to all brunches of bus 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 IJ. & M.

Herald: At present the prob abilities are that Nebraska will not bs admitted as a State, although there is a nosubilitv that it may. Should our present application fail, your correspon dent, D, suggests that it might be well for the legislature to frame another constitution, ana it congress reiuses our present application there is no doubt .1 l v, ,i . . provide for calling a constitutional con vention. There is no question that the will cf the people will be belter ex pressed through the action of a consti tutional convention, eircted for the purpose of framing a constitution, than " u CV a legislature uot eiecteu ior tnai 1 ' purpose. ii- r 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 I 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 intelligent, reading, industrious, bus iness men. Men wh3 will be a credi present indications, the population of Nebraska will be doubled during the next eighteen months. Mr. Editor. At it appears loler able certain that Congress will not ad mil us as a State under ihe resent Constitution permit tne lo suggest that the coming Legislature shall adopt a new Constitution, which shall remove the objections urged against the pres ent one. It strikes me that this course will be fully as acceptable to the people a3 to call a Convention for the purposs of framing a Constitution. If the Legislatuae should adopt a Constitution, our Senators and Repre sentatives could take their seats in Con gress by the 1st oC April next. D. 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. i 'Jl'Iie I.tgeinl ;1 tvanJ.i lads. The popular i.amd t)t ili e Saint who pre.-ides ovt-r Chrisuii.is and toy gifts of that welcome f jason, is derived from Sainl Nicholas The leend-ot his ap- reajaiice is an Italian oik Accorumir to ihi. a shoe i,akt r uained GiraKii, 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 chant -that his religious faith could nev er be shaken. lin went every day to church, notwithstanding the other's mockery. It was now Christmas day, when the meichant and the Jew settled up their yearly nccounts; Duonajuto found he owed his friend three hundred ducal, and wishing 1 1 give him an agreeable surprise, he ordered one of the ducks he had fattened to be killed and roast ed, and then '-villi his own hand intro duced three hundred golden peices into the inside, and sewed them up, then sent the duck to the merchant as a Christmas presen. '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 Nicholas!" When he recovered from his surprise, he would have taken the money back, but his wife persuaded him that, as he bought the duck, it was rightfully his own. He therefore divided the sum between the suitors for his two eldest daughters. The merchant, after some days, dis covered his los- of the three hundred Uncut. OtiJ yenl tt !i5 sliociuiiir to demand the money which was refused The cause came before the Magistrate, who was a pious man. npcl heard with indignation how ciutdiy the poor man Itad been ridiculed nbcm hi rehgimi. His sentence was, that (iiraldi should keep the money, and that ihe merchant and the Jew should pay besides, a firie. for their usurious dealings, cf one bun dred and fifty ducats, to be givin as a dowry to the shoemaker s youngest daughter. The meaning of this legend is, that a beuificent Providence watch over and takes care of th poor, who are honest, religious and truthful. The tradition runs, that since that time St Nicholas pay:? a visit every Chris'nia: eve to all whom h thinks worthy of his favors. He is known altogether by the name Santa Claus. EPS" The Postmaster General has decided to discontinue all Post Offices in Southern States, where late Post masters fail to make returns of the money and stamps in their hands at the beginning of :he war. Very few old ofhees in the Southern States have yei been re-opened, and except where spe cial application is made, no more will be for some tune to come. Washington, Dec. 2G, Letters from Richmond declare that the legis lature voted lirianimi usly against t he Constitutional 'Amendment, &i-d that the people of Virgmid are equally unanimous. New Vokk, Dec. 31. The Herald Washington special says that a state ment comes from a trustworthy source that instructions Lave been sent to Minuter Campbell at New Orleans, and ere this he is en route for Chihua hua to join President J uarez. Lieut Gen. Sherman arrived last evening. The Tribune's Washington special says thai Stevens is preparing import ant measures which will be introduced immediately cn the reassembling of Congress.

A strong pressure has been brought to bear upon the commit tee from the Northwest to secure a moderate incr. ase, but Hooper, backed by ihe cummiiiee, strenuously oppose, and will endeavor lo defeat it in the House. " The 'Northwestern member! allege that Ma.-sachusetts Iras SG0.000, 000 invested in National Banks, while the entire Northwest has not much over 8-50.000.000. ftj" A maa ivas asked what in- j duced him to make a law student of his ! son.

ALL li:03JT IT- The following questions frcm a gentle man in Mississippi will serve to show 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 ! States, are anxious to obtain the same information sought by this man. He asks : 1. What Railroad facilities, present and prospective, at Flaitsmouth and ad jacent country? 2. How often do boats pass up and down? 3. What is the freight on corn, wheat, potatoes and pork to St. Louis, or Columbus, Ky., and market price of same now? 4. Is Piattsmouth situated immedi ate'' on the river, and what kind of river bottom is it in regard te elevation, timber and soil, and how wide is the bottom? 5. What is the population in number and kind? G. How does town property sell with or without improrement? 7. What is farm land selling at in cash in the adjaceut country say from two to 15 miles. 8. Is the priarie land productive as the wood land? 9. What kind of limber in the coun try. 10, Is there much maple sugar made, and the price? 11. What kind and quality of water away from the streams? 12. Can lands or town property be bought on time in part? 13. Can graiu, potatoes and pork be bought in quantity in first hands during the winter, and what the probable cost of preparing and hauling oats, wheat, corn, rye and pork? 14 Can plenty of timber be had for wood and posts convenient to prairies? 15. What is the cost and conven ience of timber for building? 1G. What the cheapest fence? 16. Da anv kin J of ttock do well there in winter without shelter? IS. How many months do they have to be fed, und what kind of range or pasture m summei ? 19. What mom 33 is navigation sus pended from cold? 20. Steamboat passage frcm Plaits mouth to St. Loui:.? 21. Do persons coming up in winter suffer inu.-h inconvenience from cold? 22. How much does it rain in win ter? 23. At what time and how long are the roads muddy or in bad order for traveling? To the above questions we mke an swer as nearly correct as we art able to as follows: 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 1 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 ion Pacific Jtoad is already completed 300 miles west fro-n Omaha, and the Iowa &. Missouri State line Road is being built towards Nebraska City, ly ing 30 miles eouth of this place. 2- Boats pass up and down almost every day during summer season, and sometimes four or Jive in a day. 3. Freights are from 25 lo 50 cents per hundred to St. Louis. The pres ent market price of corn is from 35 ct's to 40 ct'?; wheat 8l .35; potatoes 81.25 per bushel (very scarce this season); pork 87.00 per hundred. Piattsmouth is situated immediate!)' on u;e j.msouri lUfer, two nines ue Iow the confluence of the Platte and .l.r- T1 . . : I . I ' I Missouri. There is but little bottom land on the Nebraska side, anywhere in ihe Territory; but there is a broad expanse of bottom land on the opposite side from 3 to 1C miles wide, what wouUi be called low bottom, partially timbered with eoltonwood, linn, (or basswood), sycamore, elm, hackberry wa'nut. I urr-oak, and several other va rieties, but principally Cottonwood. The sod cannot be surpassed, unless il is by our rilling prank's. 5. The population of Piattsmouth is between 2,000 and 3,000, all white, and as fine a lot of people as can be found anywhere in the world. 9. Town lots, without improvements, can be had at from S-50 to 82,000, owir::r to location. Improved property can be bad as above with cost cf im provements. 7. Farm land can be had at from Government price to 830 per acre; owing to location &c. 8. The prairie land of Nebraska cannot be surpassed, in point of pro ductiveness, by any part cf the world, as ihe last ten years bear witmess. 9. The timber in the country, away trorn the large rivers is mosiiy oak. walnut, hickory and ash. 10. No maple sugar. 1 1 . The water is limestone and fresh No such thing as bad water known in Nebraska. 12 Lands and town property can be had on time, in part or in whole, by giving proper securities. 13. Ihe products named, except po tatoes, can be had in quantities in first hands, and prepared and hauled at reasonable rates, owing to the labor required. 1-1. Timber can be had convenient to a large proportion cf ihe prairie land, although soma portions are re mote from that necessary anscle. Cottonwood timber, however, can be cultivated successfully on the prairies, and there are already large groves of it in various puts of Nebraska. 15. Cottonvvoud lumber for building can be had convenient at 825 to 830 per thousand feet. . 16. The cheapest fence is the "Herd Law ;" but where a visible fence, ii desired either wire or boards is gen erally used on the prairies. 17. All kinds cf sto'-k will do reas onably well without shelter, but do bet ter wi b; sheds made of prairie grass (which, by ihe way, is the very best of hay, and can be had everywhere for the cost of cutting) or straw is used generally for the protection of stock, unless w here there is a large herd, and then they are left without shelter. IS. Stock generally have to be fed from four and t half to five months. The pasture in the summer is Ihe broad and expansive pritiries, which aru cov ered with rich and luxuriant grasses equal u the clover fields of the old States. 19. Navigation is generally suspend ed from about the first of December lo the first of March, though sometimes not so long. 20 Siecmboat passage to St. Louis, about 825. 21 As a general thing persons can travel without suffering from cold il warmly clad. The winds are ihe worsi part. 22. No rain of consequence in win- ter. 23. The roads are seldom, muddy. The soil is sufficiently sandy to prevent mud. It may rain all day and night, and by 10 o'clock ihe next morning the soil will be sufficiently dry to plow, and tht reads will hardly show a sign of mud. We have endeavored to answer the above questions in as brief and truth lul a manner as possible, and believe there is sufficient good in this country to largely overbalance the bad qualities. There are many other things of which we would like to write and propose to at different limes in future. Let ail who desire to emigrate to a good coun try cctne and see fur themselves. m ifSF" Keith Johnson, a Scotch gen tleman, travelling in the Holy Land, says he has discovered, in a village, now called Tell Hum, ancient Caper naum, the synagogue in which Christ preached on one occasion. Tnis is the only edifice now existing which was visited by the Savior. Mr. Johnson state lhat the synagogue is in a very good state of preservation, considering that it is more than one thousand, eight hundred and sixty years old. EST" The following is the "nub" of a yarn which is told about a big, whiskey-guzzling fellow, who came home drunk one nscht. and sat down by the fire to warm his feet, which were reg ular "worm-killers." Says ihe le gend : . After dozing some tin . he awoke chilly; the embers were ntirely hid from view; and seing his feet, he mis took them for his liule boy, when, with a majestic side wave of his hand, he said: "Stand aside, my little son, and let your poor father warm himself!" Need Men get Makbied. Among the many new inventions, says the St. Joe Herald, is a button that is fastened to rloth without thread. It consists of a button with a wire, to be inserted into cloth like a corkscrew, and then pressed down Cat, so as to form a ring to hold the button to its place. As this inven tion wiil enable men to keep the buttons 1 on their shirts, it obviates the necessity of wives not altogether, but to a very great extent. A correspondent, in a letter to a London paper, suvs : "On the side wall of a building in Leicester, I lately read the inscription, newly put up Near this spot lie the remains of Rich ard 111, the last of liirt Plantnireneis.' But long after he ft li on IJ.iswc-rth field, in 1 1S5, even dawn to very re cent date, scions 'of the right stem of great P!alagnet' were in existence among us, in humble circumstances, illustrating the decadence of families. One was a butcher at Halesowen an other kept a turnpike rate, and anoth er was sext.m at St. George s Hanover Snmire." I.iC"l IVotice.
