Our readers will remember tliat, by
an act'p-uaed at the first session c the
39th Cjgrajj, ihe Surveyor-General's
oHice for Iowa atid Nebi-tu-fca nas loca
ted at FiaiUmouth. Sti.ce' that lime
various rumors have been .i3oat that it
was to bo changed to soma oiher point,
and m-iay here have looked upon it as
doubtful whether wa were to have it or
not. IV e Lets been permitted to read
a private letter from Hon. T. M. Mar
fiust'., in which he taya the othce is now
a "fixed fact" at this city. An "ppoint
men; of Surveyor-Gue ral will soou be
mad (and we ai"y be pardoned for
oxpre-jsiag the hopa that a citizen of
tha t-vvn taay receive the appiintment)
n:il i!u ollice will then be set in run-
1.1115 order. There ia nothing equal to
ezeriiaa i n tha part of our citizens to
secure these beneais, and we hope
every man will feel an interest in them
and do what he c.-.n.
We have carefully watched the
sign cf the times," and are confident
that Nebraska wi'.l recewe an eimgra
fion the present season thai will aston
ih tha "oldest inhatiinnls.' Three

who report that in every locality through
which they piSfed the cry wau "west

ihnv conversed snj'ce very ' bitrhlv o!
Nebraska. Mr. Johnson, of Ashl;iutl
irifonns us that thirty families from
Atabu'a co'Jutv. Uiiio. will settle in
taundrrs county tins sprin j. itiis is
(he tenor cf the u?vs from all parts of
the ta t. They are coming, not by
ones and twos from a, but by
thtrtys, fifuas and hundreds. L,i our
citizens but interest thems?.ves in
spreading the necessary informition in
moar.1 t this countrv. an I in two
o -
years from to day not cue foot of Gov-
eminent land can be found within cucj
hundred miles of tha Missouri river.
Writ;; letters, send paper, and 1-t the
people cast know the fact j in regard to
cur 3cung State.
TOO exvi:?,sive.
Several of the Stat3 papers have re
ferred tD the subject of the re-location
of the Capital, and tha trgumtnt has
been used that we could not allurd th
expense. Without, at this lime, saying
anything in regard to the propriety of
such re-location, we d.sire to correct
the impressions of si ins regarditj ih;
xnen?e. The State of Nebraska, un
der the enabling act, is entitled to over
oOO.OOO a-.;re3 of land, over 43,000 of
which uiust. under the provisions of the
act, be located adjacent to the great
bait Springs in Lancaster county.
Now, we wiil tuppost thai the capital
a3 located upon this land belonging to
the State, even admitting that no more
of this 300,000 acres was located in
lhat vicinity, is there a man in Nebras
ka who does not know that it would be
a paying thing to the State, instead of
being an expense? The increased val
ue of the State lands adjoining would
more than three times pay the expense
of the capital building, besides the
great benefit it would be to the State
in developing the country. We refer
to this matter merely to show the fa!
lacy of the argument cf expense.
Judge Morgan spoke before the
Chicago Board of Trade a few days
ago upon the completion of a railroad
connecting Chicago with the settled
part of Colorado, ia order to enable
that ci:y to compete wiih St Louis for
the Colorado trade. The only road
now in course of construction that will
thoroughly accoinp'i;h this desirable
object is the 13. INI, R. Read. It will
cross the Missouri river at this place,
where, as we have before stated, is the
best place to build a bridge that can be
found on the river, and its course frcm
here west to Colorado will be almost
on a n air line, passing through the fin
est farnwng country in the world. We
are glad to see Chicago being awaken
ed to the necessity of this road. It is
of equal, if not greater importance to
Chicago than the Pacific road, There
may not be quite o much talk about it,
and it may not excite ihe admiration of ,
the world to ihe tame extent as the
Pacific road, but it will be of equal
importance to the commercial interests
of Chicago and the whole Northwest.

2? In the ca.-eof ihe UnueJ States"'
b gainst the ex Confederate steamer
Alexandria, the Admirnhty Court has
decided in favor of the U. S. Govern-I.vent.
We are gratified to see the press of
South l'iatte, with the sole exception of
the Nebraska City Aeifs united in their J
demands that justice be done the major
ity of the voter in '.he matter of repre
sentation. . I lie Kulo Utilizer, we re
lieve, goes apainst it; but then, it is
generally considered as a lly-leaf to
the JVciiJ. The Advertiser, after re
viewing the bargain atid sale proposed
between the jews on the part of Otoe,
and the lhrald on the part of Douglas,
says :
This is the cae as it now stand .
The Omahomedans get (he Capital and
an unfair proportion in presentation;
its pay has already been received, bar
ri i ihe Capitol! Otoe is yet waring
for her share of me plunder :
Isow, the question is, will tno Jjegis
ature consent to debase itself t the
level of partisan infamy of these schem
ers in iniquity ! u ill ihy reward and
perpetuate the outrage ! This is an at
tempt ta rob 9ouih Platte of her heri
tage as well as her representation!
There is but one institution that shou d
be located at Nebraska City, the saving
in transportation of its ir.mntes would
be juiticiniit inducement to locate the-
Peuiienti iry ai that place, :n addition
to the moral suasion it might exercise
over Morton is: Co.
The best evidence that Mississippi
needs a little reconstruction is found in
the fact lhat her Legislature has ap
propriated -0,000 io be expended in
the defence of Jeff. Davis. We sup
pase loyal men have to pay taxes in
that State as well cs ex-rebels that is
if thy are nllowed to have anything to
pay taxes on and we do not think
there is much justice in taxing them to
defend the a-ch traitor.
For years before the war, and during
the war, the northern Democracy wa
constantly advising the South to resist
all just and lfgal measures lhat did no
tend to the advancement of their pecu
liar ideas and institutions, and by this
means brought on the war and prolong
ed it for four years. And now they
are at the sam-a old game in regard to
reconstruction. The ex-rebels were
willing to submit to the authority of the
loyal government ut the close of the
war, but were told by uorthern Demo
crats that if ihuy would demand it they
couid come into the halls of Congress
wiih all the pomp and glory of conquer
ors arid instead of taking the attitude
of the vanquished they would in reality
be the victors. This they have tried,
tut have failed os signally as they did
in taking the oddce of the same men
wnen they utien.pted to overthrow the
government by force of arms.' They
refused the Constitutional Amendment
on the advice of these would-be revolu
tion's at ihe North, and in its siead
ihey find ihe Military Reconstruction
bill. A number of the Southern Stales
are inclined io accept this in good laith,
but their northern advisers, who have
been thrir evil genius through the
whole trouble, are howling lustily
ugaimt it, and telling them lhat we have
no government, lhat we are living in a
state of anarchy, etc. Wiil ihey take
this advice, cr w ll ihey accept the in
evitable. If these northern Solons
really de.-ire a settlement of this dif
ficulty, and do not wish to see more
stringent measures adopted, they ,had
belter stop their brag and bluster and
gratuitous advice to a people who have
already suffered the torments of pur
gu'.ory from their evil council?.
The Democratic papers were loud in
their proclamations, a few years aco,
that the war was a "failure," and ihey
labored hard to make iheir words true.
Now ihey are commencing anew howl,
that we "have no government," and are
doing what ihey can to make that as
sertion true. They are acting on the
principle of their assertions to some ex
tent, by ignoring statute law and re
rorting to mob violence. Will honest,
thinking men support a party
leaders proclaim that we have no gov
ernment who Mate that we are living
in a state of anarchy and despotism?
Do the farmers and mechanics who
vote ihe Democratic ticket believe that
we have no government? Do tttey
support a party that proclaims suoh
doctrines? How many emigrants ihink
you, we would have from foreign coun
tries if they were made to believe that
we have no just and equitable govern
ment in this country. Do you, Demo
cratic readers of ihe Herald, believe
that we have no government, lhat the
American Republic is now numbered
"among the things that were?" Do
you. if you are of foreign birth, write
io your friends lhat this is your belief.
If you do not, and do not believe such
to be the fact, and do not desire that it
should be, will yoa support a party that
is daily proclaiming such heresies, and
by that act alone, if by no oilier, is en
deavoring to break up the government
which you believe to be far superior to
a monarchy. It is high time, if we ex-
peel to preserve a Republican form of
government, that the spark of lawless
ness which has crepped out in Nebras
ka, but is in a fuli blaze in the South,
should be extinguished; and the men
who uphold and defend it should be re
pudiated by ihe voice :f the people
Let every man who bi-lifves we have
a Republican govifrntner.t. and who de
sires to perpeluatt; it, unite to put djvvn
the party that sustains mob violence,
and proclaims lhat the American Re
public is a thing cf ihe past.
PS?" The PUttsmouth Democrat
gives in its columns whenever it ha
ihe opportunity, biographies of leading
rebels, like A. Sidney ohnson a pret
ty big straw that shows which way the
Democratic wind blows.
The same pap'sr has a blovia'ing ar
ticle about the reconstruction bill "'ab-
solute monarchy,:' etc., etc. The idea
of a rebel in sentiment and sympathy
objfctiri? to the manner i' which the
loyal people sha'l govern their country
is rich. Kntrland ouht to object also
to our method of conducting our inter
nal ailairs. :
We clip the above from ihe local
columns of the Republican, you forget,
Major, that ihe 'brain.s'' part of the
Ihmccrai tried very hard to be elected
as a delegate from Nebraska to the B d
liir.ore convention in 1SG1, and threat
ened to destroy the city of Plattsmouth
because he failed. And yet you insin
uaie that he is a rebel in sentiment!
Why, he woulu sacrifice everything,
6300 Greenbacks, principle even, if he
bad it, to be able to serve his country
in so.iie way, either as a delegate to a
convention, District Judge, or U, S.
Senator. Oh, lar!
Mn. Editor :
Peraiit me, through the columns of
your paper, to call the attention of Gov
Butler, and the j people of ihe State, to
a matter of vatil importance to the Ag
ricuhural interests of the State, viz.
The prohibiting the importation into, or
the driving through ihn State, of Texas
catile. :
Your readers aro perhaps acquainted
with the ravages committed among cat
tle bv the "Texas fever." To such as
are not. I would say that it is estimated
lhat Kansas S loses annually ubou
8200,000. Missouri has prohibited
the passage through that Stale, and
Kansas has juu passed a law prohibit
ing the introduction or passage of cattle
raised south of Kansas, except into or
through the ex treme western portion of
the State. This ac ion of Missouri
and Kansas makes Nebraska the be.-i
route by whii-h 'IVxas cattle can b?
taken to the fedinr region' of tastern
Iowa and Illinois. Such being ihe
caso, I deem it of great importance
that the Call Session of the Legislature
should take thj; necessary steps to pre
vent the passage of such cattle through
Nebraska. ' J. E. D.
The Senate has reconsidered the
vote confirming the ar pointment of II
II. Heath as Secretary of New Mex
ico, and that worthy Johnson wriggler
has been rejected. The "Johnson bus
iness'' in Nebraska was thought to have
been "muddleid" some lime last sum
mer, out is is pretty well cleared up
The rebellious element in the late
Territorial Legislature, after having
demeaned ihe.mselres in a style which
would have been a disgrace to a banu
of uncivilized Indians, attempted, in a
published statement beaded "To ihe
People of Nebraska; or Truth versus
Fiction," to create a difficulty between
certain members who stood by the rights
of the people. They cited Mr. Rogers
as authority for some of their state
ments against South Platte members;
but Mr. Rogers comes out in a card
in the Republican denying their asser
tions, and says they have no right to
use his name in connection with any
such idea.

It is the universal sentiment amonu
tie Republicans of Omaha lhat ihe de
feat ot Monday was a Bull Run not
only in its aspect of iefeat, but also in
the ultimate glorious results which are
io be its fruits. The disgraceful s; ene
enacted on that day by the Democracy
have planted the seed from which will
be reaped a splendid harvest of right,
justice and equal to all men.
From Bull Run rose up ihe deter
mination of ihe people and the over
whelming armies which put down the
rebellion and saved tbe nation. From
the Bull Run of last Monday has risen
