THE TIME TO WORK..
No great thing was f ver accom
plished without wo:k, either ly an in
dividual or a community; and the time
to work is before every thing has set
tied down to an irrevocable decision
The people of Plaiismouth jhould work
now. We need a great many things
to advance the prosperity of ihis com
munity, and the only safe an J rure
way to get them that we know of is to
work for them, and to work now. We
need to have operations commenced
upon the Railroad from here west; and
there is no kind cf doubt but we can
hasten ihe commencement by laboring
to that end. There is scarcely a pian
in the community who entertains a se
rious doubt that work upon this road
will be commenced and carried through
to a successful end; but we should have
it commenced soon. We know tLat it
is not in the power of thisci y or coun
ty to control Railroad cr Railroad
companies, any mora than it was iu
the power of Onnta to do the same
tiling. But, there is in our power to
do something, and it is our privilege
and duty to do that ?ome thing. If we
can do anything even to hasten that
which vould eventually take place with
out any effort on cur part, we should
do it. We hope our people will con
sider this matter, and see if they can
not discover wherein a united effort on
the part of every inhabitant of the coun
ty could accomplish something for ihe
general gocd; and if such opportunity
is discovered, let it not go unimproved.

Omaha, Feb. 15th. 1SG7.
j i' kiem) Hatha way : 1 am t.orry
to inform you that connderj tie feeling
j has been excited by the course of the
i Omaha delegation m upju.-iiion to the
appot lionment till. It is the old sec
ticnal fight over nain. The South
Platte members voted a a unit for the
bii!. The I ill does not char ge the po
litical complection of any district, and
meets the views of men of both parties
Sjuth of the Platte. A simple state
ment t-f one fact, Mr. Rates now holds
a seal in the Council upon 31!) votes,
while the County of Richardson, with
only one member, polls 1,037, Nemaha
with a vote of 77G, has only one mem
ber. Yet, in the face cf this glaring
injustice, when the members from Rich
ardson and Nem-iha a.-k a fair division,
Omaha rises up as one man, and howls
sectionalism, aLd the most bitter fetl
ir;g prevails toward every South Platte
man. You may be sure that the Ca s
delegation came up for their full share
of censure, and they are chygoil with
being extra sectional. You will see-
by the Ikrull, that Mes?rs. Sheldon
and Doom are selected as the victims
upon whom 10 ncur OJt the vials cf
wrath. The truth is, that Omaha is
very much interested in getting the
Railroad bridge. ar;d a bill was intro
duced, authorizing Omaha to raise
8100 0UO in one year; the people arc
not allowed to vote upon the proposition,
and only two days notice is given after
lime for the payment of taxr-s, and if
not paid in thirty days, the property i?
to be sold for taxes, at:d interest at the
rate of 50 per cent, is allowed. The
city can purchase at the sale, and only
IS months are allowed for redemption
of the property. My opinion is, that
when the citizens of Cass county are
aware of ihe features of ine bill they
will tpprove the course ef Messrs.
Sheldon and Djom. A rather amus
ing circumstance occurred in ihe Couu
cil yesterday. Mema-ShlduU"Htxl
Doom had been bitterly denounced as
sectional men, they concluded to show
that they were not, accordingly, at the
proper time, Mr- Sheldon rose and in
the most unconcerned manner, asked
leave to introduce a bill, leave being
granted, he offered A Bill for an Act
to authorize the citizens of Omaha to
raise money to build a Rail and other
Bridges.'' The principal provisions of
ihe bill allowed ih citizens to raise
8200,000 by private subscription to
build Rail or other bridges across mod
holes, &.G. When Mr. Shelden took
his seat, Mr. Doom rose and asked
leave to introduce a bill, which beinu
granted, ha introduced "A Bill to de
fine the limits of the Missouri River,
and for other purposes." This being
a tender point with the Omaha nabobs,
Mr. Doune, cf Douglas, while the bill
was being read, endeavored to have it j
rejected, but th reading continued
amidst ronrs of laughter from all ex
cept the unfortunate Omahas. j

Omaha, Feb, 16di 1S(J7.
Fimexo Hatha way : There it a
great deal of txci ement on the rppcr
lionmeni bill. I had hoped that ihis
Territory would never be cursed with
another sectional quarrel, but'Omaha
has forced the fight upon us, absolutely
refusing to do anything. Omaha and
Nebraska Ci-y join hands on all occa
sions to defeat Oass county and the
couutry west of Casa. Witness the pas
sage through the Council of a memorial
to reverse Mr. Harlan's decision in
reference lo the B. & M. R. R. lands.
I assure you that the Cass delegation
in both Houses are wide awake, and
will stand united in resisting the unholy
combination. While we in Cas have
always been willing to sacrifice person
al ends and local interests for the sake
of party, I find that it is r.othmg out cf
the way for Notihetn Republicans to
vote with Democrats. Southern Repub.
lienns dare not affiliate on local meas-
rues with Democrat?, but men of all
parlies unite here with perfect impunity.
There are two honorable exceptions,
they are Hon. E. II. Rogers, Pres't of
ihe Council, and the Hon. J. E. Kelly,
of Piatte County. These gentlemen,
by their bold, unswerving fidelity to
justice have endeared themselves to
the members South of the Platte, and I
very much mistake the people of Cuss,
if they fail to reward those gentlemen
when opportunity offers, ani I have no
hesitation in now proposing the names
of those gentlemen for either Governor
or Member of Congress or Delegate,
as the ca;e may be.
Mr. Rogtr3 is one of the most el
ective Speakers in the Territory, aud
i man whom it is only necessary to
know in order to love. The Cass del
egation have taken the Hits in their
tedh and are cn a rampage.. More

lionize the House, depose the Speaker,

st of .Yorfh-riail?, namely ihe Omaha
Bridge B.ll as well as the indefinite
postponement cf the Ap;oitionmeni
Bill, in which the South Platte mem
bers stood as a body, except in the
House, the Otoe members. The Lob
by was crowjJed by the citizens of Oma
ha, who seemed determined to carry
their schemes by anarchy and disorner.
The notorious Augustus Harvey ro-e
and niflde the motion "that riie Speak
er's Chair bk dcclart l vacant, and Dr.
Abbott vrWfw Shan- as- Speaker."
and before the motion was concluded,
the click of revoluers was heard on the
Democratic side and in the lobby, and
a general rush was made for the Speak
er'a desk; rrjauy revolvers were aimed
at the SpeaUer. The Republican mem
bers, all except the three above named,
rushed to the rescue.
First and foremost wa Hon. Isaac
Wiles, suppcVted by Fuller, Doom and
the fearless Ceh- Majors. The Speak
er stood firm' and undaunted revolver
in hand, and said any one who dared
put his foot insicTe tEe stand would re
ceive its contents. Such courage is sel
dom manifested; at least a dozen re
volvers wer leveled at him. Self
possessed in the mid t of the terror that
surrounded him, h adjourned the Hose
bringing the gavel down wiih a force
that showed nerve i mil Monday morn
ing at 10 o'clock; acd proceeding from
the desk was escoried by friends, es
pecially the Cas county members.
The Sergeant-at arms, Howard
..ha.il.i.La'd acttd under'crdeis from
prominent cit'zens declared the Chair
vacant, ordered the roll called, nomi
nated Dr. Abbott for Spaker, put the
motion which was of course carried
by the minority c-f the Huure the
majority havir-g left "pursuant to ad
j jurnmeni" (ihe authority of u Ser-gea-.l-at-arms
to organize a legislative
buiiy will surely be decided according
lo law) whereupon Doctor Abbott of
Washington tool; the chair, and the cre
dentials of fn Ome' county member
decided in duo form, and he entitled to j
a seat. Gov. Saunders adminuierc d j
the oath comment is unnecessary.
Some business was transacted, viz:
indefinitely postponed the apportion
ment bill passed the Omaha Railroad
Bridge bill, al.-o, the appropriation bill,
and after congratulating themselves on
the wisdom and legality of their
proceedings, adjourned until 9 o'clock
Yesterday the Republican members
made a statement setting forth the facts,
that the pretended body were not a
quorum, under oath administered by
Hou. E. S. Dundy, and proceed-d to
tha Governor, and asked him lo assure
protection on Monday.
He said ho would try and reconcile the
other party, and if it wa necessary would
furnish protection. This morning, at
the time of wriiiDg, they are trying to ef
fect some terms upon which they can
