Seme time since, the JVews, of Ne
braskaCity raised a terrible hye and
cry about the lands reserved for the
use of the B. & M. R. and made
every effort possible to have the lands
restored to market, to the evident dm
riment of the company. The land
have been restored at least that por
tion not embraced within mi es on
either side of the line of road. But
where is the benefit to the S6ttler? Ua
der the old order of things Homesteads
of 160 acres could be taken, and land
could be entered at S1.25 per acre;
now the settler can only take a Home
stead cf 80 acres, and we are inform
ed that the settler taking a Homestead
is not allowed to enter any land, but
must be content with his 80 acres.-
Which mt-thod is likely to induce ihe
createst rtBmber of seitler?? We do
not know that the fuss and fume of the
AVu has nnvthinsr to do with this
change; but we do know that it says
nothing against it. It tried to ii)jure
the Railroad interest, and has succeed
ed, if it has had any affect at all, in in
juring the whole country by securing
an order that checks the rapid settle
ment of the western counties at least
we fear it will have that effect udIbss a
change can be effected.
We noticed, some, time since, that
the people of Fremont county were
holding meetings with a view to rais
ing 8150,000 as an inducement to the
B. &i M. R. R. to run through that
county to Nebraska City. The ques
tion was brought before the board of
supervisors, and it was decided by ihem
not to submit any such proposition to
the people. It wan voU-d down before
the board by a vote of 4 to 3, thus put
ting .a stop to the whole arrangement.
We. think it was wiee in tj Supervis-
wj, m.iL-wvia't tivfiuite.y located to
this city, and it would only be a waste
of time and money to hold an election
for the purpose of taking a vote upon
this subject. One reason urgti against
submitting it to a vote was that they
feared the Democratic City of Nebras
ka would send over a large number of
its stragglers to vote, a la Omaha elec
tion, and thus carry the measure wheth
er the citizens of Fremont desired it or
not. They thought Nebraska City
was more interested in the matter than
Fremont county was.

The Little Rebel of this city endorses
and justifies unreservedly the proceed
ings at the Omaha election. I is well
known, and stands uncontradicted, that
men came from North Plans, a dis
tance of over 300 miles, and voted at
the City election in Omaha; and yet
the concern that owns the Democratic
City Council of this city endorses it.
We take this endorsement as good ev
idence that it would advocate the same
thing in our city election next Monday.
Do the voters endorse this thing ? Do
they desire to have men brought from
a distance of ihrea hundred miles to
control our city election? Let those
who endorse such gigantic frauds be
"potted" as eaemies to the prosperity
ef the oity, who would obtain a party

Mf WSTEYEXS CONFISCATION
The great rebel hater has introduced
into Congress another bill which is
likely to be the subject of animated if
not heated discussion in that body. It
is entitled "A Sill relating to the dam
ages done to loyal men," and provides
for confiscation of a sweeping character.
Its fate is as yet problematical. The
following is an epitome of its provis
ions: Section 1 declares all public lands
belonging to the ten rebel States for
feited to the Uuited States.
Section 2 directs the President forth
with to cause the seizure of such prop
erty belonging to tne beligerent enemy j
as is deemed forfeited by act of July
17, 1SG2, and hold and appropriate the
same as tne enemy s property, ana
further directs hhn to proceed to the
condemnation of property already
Section 3 prescribes how such prop
erty snail be condemned, viz: Jtsy a
committee of three for each rebel State,
to be appointed by the President, to
consist of one army officer and two
non-resident civillians, who shall ad
judicate and condemn property afore
said, under such forms and proceedings
as shall be prescribed by the Attornej
General of the U. S., whereupon the
title to said property shall became ves
ted in the United States.
Se-ciion 4 provides that of lands thus
confiscated there shall be distributed to
iterated slaves as follows: To each
mle adult, whether the head of a fain
ly or not, 40 acres; to each widow or
m ie person wno is tne neaa or a ram
ily, 10 acres, to be held by them in fee
simple, but to be inalienable for the
next ten years after they become seized
tru?n?of. The title to these homesteads
shali be vested in trustees appointed by
this Secretary of War, and held for the
use .f the liberated persons aforesaid,
but at the end of ten years the ab.-olute
title to said homestead sha.l be convert
ed to said owners, or heirs of such as
are deceased. This land is to be dis
tributed, or allotted by commissioners
appointed by the Secretary cf War.
Section 5 provides that out cf the
tilL.n-.A jitohft. Dropertyakua seized jj nd
confiscated there shall be raised in the
rnani:er hereinafter provided a sum
equal t j fifty dollars for each homestead
to be applied by the trustees hereinaf
ter mentioned, to tha erection of build-
ing on said homesteads for the use of
aid slaves; and a further sum of five
millions of dollars, which shall be ap
propriated as follows: Two hundred
millions shall be invested in U. S. six
per cent, certificates, and the interest
thereof shall be semi-annually added to
thft pensions allowed by law to pension
ers who have become so by reason of
the late war; tnree hundred millions.
or so much as may be needed, shall be
appropriated to pay damages done to
loyal citizens by the civil or military
operations of the government called th
Confederate States of America.
Section G exacts exemption for ail
persons whose property on the 4th of
March, 1S65, was worth less than S5,
000, except such as voluntarily became
officers in the civil or military service
of the rebel government. And declares
that in enforcing the confiscation act,
$5,000 worth of properly shall be left
to each delinquent.
Section 7 makes it the duty of the
committee named in section three to
make a fair valuation of all property
seized and forfeited, and when such
valuation is completed in the several
Stntfs, said committee shall meet in
the city of Washington, and assess
8oOC.000.000 as aforesaid, as well as
the allowance for homestead buildings
pro rata on each of the properties or
estates thus seized. And they shall
give notice of such assessment of appor
tionment for sixty days.
Section 8 provides that if owners of
sai l seized and confiscated estates shuli
wiibin ninety days after the first said
publioatien pay into the Treasury of
the United States ihe sum assessed on
their estates, respectively, all estates
and lands not actually appropriated to
liberated slaves, shall bo released and
restored to their owners.
Section y declares that all property
not redeemed as aforesaid shall be sold
for thebenefit of the United States,
provided not more tnan tnree years
credit s-hall be given on purchase mon
ey, and arable land shall not be sold in
larger tracts than 500 acrei.
