We make the following extracts
from the Second Annual Report of Rt
Rev. Robert II. Clark son, Missionary
Bishop of Nebraska and Dakotah.
Another years' work in the field as
signed to me by the Church, has left
upon me still deeper impressions of its
importance and capabilities. Since
this time last year, one of the Ternto
ries of the jurisdiction l as become a
State, and Nebraska has taken position
as the latest born of the National Sis
terhood, with every prospect of soon
rivaling in population, in wealth, and
in power, most of the older States of
the land. I shall speak first of Ne
xier area comprises seventy-two
thou-p.nd square miles, of as inagnifi
cent a territory as the sun shines upon.
Geologists and surveyors in the employ
of the Government, have recently offi
cially declared this to be the richest
and the most fertile soil in the land.
Her white population now is about
eighty thousand, the Indian about fif
teen thousand. These, however, are
but estimates, made according to my
In Nebraska, besides the Bishop, we
have fourteen clergy, all actually en
gaged in constant and laborious duty,
thirteen among the whites, and one
among the Indians. All these, except
four, are supported in whole, or in part,
by the generous help of the Board of
Missions. So that we have one cler
gyman to about every five thousand
souls of the white population, the larg
est ratio, I believe, of any diocese in
the country. There are about four
hundred communicants among the
whites, and over two hundred in the
single tribe of the Santee Sioux Indi
ans, or six hundred in all. The con
firmations during the last year bava
been seventy fonr whites, and thirty-
revfcu Indians, and ninety-nine in ore
dioceses for the Bishops thereof, ma
king two hundred in all.
Plattsmonth. the third town in Ne
braska, has a population of perhaps
two thousand five hundred, and is situ
ated, like the other two we have men
tioned, on the Missouri River, midway
between them. This is the site of the
handsome Church recently erectea by
Mrs. Young of St. Luke'g Church,
New York, as a memorial to her de
parted husband, and named by her, St.
Luke's Church. The Rev. G. C. Belts,
a most valuable contribution to our min
istry by the Methodist Church, is the
talented and devoted Rector. On
Trinity Sunday last, the fine edifice
which stands on a commanding emi
nence, overlooking town and river, was
consecrated to the service of Almighty
God. The Rev. Dr. Tuttle of New
York, the beloved Pastor of Mrs.
Young, preached a most able and ap
propriate consecration sermon. Long
shall all the great crowd who enjoyed
the services of that happy day, remem
ber the eloquent words of wisdom and
instruction that fell from bis lips, as he
discoursed to us of the things of the
Heavenly Zion. Dear to the hearts of
the Churchmen of Nebraska, shall
ever be the memory of our gentle ben
efactress. Th3 congregation has
grown here in a single year from a
mere handful, to the first rank in the
place as to numbers and influence.
The parish has a convenient parson
age, built by the congregation, adjoin
ing the Church, and also, I am happy
to say, a flourishing Parish School.
There are forty-five communicants
here. During the past year, on two
occasions, I confirmed thirteen persons,
most of them heads of families, and
influential people of the town.
The following extracts are from
letters written for the Spirit of Mis
sions by Rev. Dr. Littlejhon, and cop
ied into Bishop Clarkson's Report.
Ten years ago there was scarcely
anything on the western side of the
Missouri, except what nature put there;
to day you behold flourishing settle
ments; you travel over well broken
road; you see, m every direction, well
tilled farms, with valuable improve
ments. You hear in the neighboring
fields, go where you will, the hum and
hurry of the harveet. Hurre stacks of
grain dot the road side far end near,
like piles of gleaming gold. It is not
for me to forecast the future in the in-
terest of agriculture and trade, cr to
set down anestim-r. of ih wpnlth nH
power certain to grow up here. I 1663, Ulysses S. Grant, of Illinois, sub

exhausted every resource of descrip
tion, and then sunk away in silence.
disgusted at its own poverty, in the
midst of such wealth and splendor of
nature. We rode on for miles, in
speechless enjoyment, until we rose to
the top of a majestic swell which com-
mauds a view of the Nemaha Valley,
and of the towering but gracefully
rounded ridges rolling off into Kansas
like huge waves ot living verdure.
Then wiih irrepressible emotion one of
the party exclaimed with Bryant:
"These are the gardensofthe Desert, these
The nnshom Acids, houud:e and beamifai,
for wnicn the speecn ol England ha no name.
Lo ! they stretch
In airy undultations, far away,
as if the ocean 1 n its gentlest swell,
Stooi with all his rounded billows fixed.
And motionless forever. Motionless ?
No ! thi-y are all unchained again The clouds
Sweep over witk their shadows, and beneath,
The Surface rails and fluctuates to the eye
Drk hollow item to glide along, and chase
The sunny ridges."
What nobler work could be assigned
to any people, than to build up a char-
acter on these imperial domains, which
in moral virtue and intellectual power,
shall be in keeping with all this wealth
of nature. A mean, ignorant, grovel-
ing race, will find its every deformity
exaggerated amid such surroundings,
and upon such a soil.
On the evening of the same day we
arrived at Plattsmouth, where the
Bithop confirmed and addressed a class
of eight, and I preached morning and
even;ng; Mr. Belts, Jr., the Rector,
assitted by Rev. Mr. Hutchison, of
B-IIevue, conducted the service. This
was tnc secood class presented in mis
active and thriving- pari-h during the
year. Mr. Betts was for a time a
Methodist minister of considerable dis
tinction, lie entered our ministry
under Bishop Talbot, and has proved
himself, in every way, a workman,
that needeth not to be ashamed. Still
young and active, he makes little of
walking, if need be, ten miles to hold
service and returning the same day.
I was quite captivated by the enthusi
asm and energy poured into his labors.
He will yet make an abiding mark on
the future fortunes of the Church in
The parish Church was built by
Mrs. Young, of New York, as a me
morial of her late husband, it is neat,
tasteful, and commodious, and by far,
the most attractive and conspicuous
structure in the town. This building
though somewhat expensive, really cost
less than many a monument in Green
wood; but, oh! how much more eloquent
of the virtues of the dead and of the
wisdom of the living. No idle marble
this to waste away in profitless seclu
sion under the slow abrasions of lhe
elements! but a house of prayer, fra
grant with the incense of devotion, and
perpetually refreshed with the hallow
ing, glorifying presence of the Holy
Ghost a type of heaven, warm with
the life of hearts struggling against ihe
powers of the world. Would that our
Christian wealth would oftener imitate
this example of affectionate and pious
grief over the departed.
Tui Right Pehsuasion. In ter-
rible agony, a soldier lay dying in the
hospital. A visitor asked h'm, "What
church are you of?'' "Of the church
of Chris'," he replied. "I mean, of
what pursuasion are you?'' then inquir
ed the visitor. "Pursuasion!" said the
dying man as his eye looked heaven
ward, beaming with love to the Sa
vior, "I am persuaded thnt neither
death nor life, nor angels or principal
ities, nor powers, nor things present or
things to come, nor height nor depth,
nor any other creature shall be able to
separate me from the love of God
which is in Christ Jesus."

This power is never acquired by edu

not arrogant, nor overbearing, nor ty-
ratinical in his maimer or spirit towards

edSe of country is unsurpassed.
There is scarcely a road or a river, a

where one is possible within the bounds

WiLKrs Booth's Whereabouts.
The Chicago Post makes ihe following
fair hit at one of the foolish sensations
of the times:
Wilkes Booth, the assassin, has been
heard from. There is no longer any
doubt even among his worst enemies
that he is living in a foreign land. It
is said that he finds the society conge-
nial, but complains somewhat of the
warmth of the climate, which is ultra-
tropical. He is the centre of attraction
to a numerous band of Southern exiles
belonging to the first families of the
rebel chivalry. Id fact, the country is
the paradise of fire-eaters.
Our solicitude for the safety of the
illustrious J. W. B., and a desire to
screen him from the eagle eye of the
Secretary of S'ate, and consequently
from the sad fate of the martyred Sur
ratt, forbids us giving any further clue
to the locality of the country in ques
tion, than just to say that the name
commences with an II, and ends with
HS'Tll teach you to play pitch

The Commissioner for the Collection
of Mining Statistics has just returned
to Washington, afier an extended tour
through the States and territories of
the Pacific Coast, and is now at work
on his official report, which embodies
a great variety of important in for::: a
tion connected with the development of
the mining interests.
The report will be submitted to the
Secretary of (he Treasury at an early
date. The statistical return) of pro

prcable they will not vary materially
from the following summary:
Montana, $12,000,000; Idaho. SG,

operations in Montana and Idaho, and
almost completely put a stop to that
branch of industry in Arizona. Ore

liamette river are in full blast, and
producing the most satisfactory results,
averaging nine tons a day of firt-class

exports of California, this year, will
not fall far short of $10,000,060, and
the manufactures alone are represent
ed to amount to considerably more than
the gold product. The wine crop this
year will amount to S3 000.000. While
there is a falling off in the gold pro
duct, other branches of industry afford
more than a counterbalance.
Rocky Mountain Giant. An ex
traordinary statement has appeared in
print, in reference to a race of giants
in the neighborhood of the Itock
mountains. It appears that on Meagh
er s Bar, opposite Nevada, there has
recently teen discovered fossils which
pled by a race of men ten or twelve
feet high. They were imbedded about
twelve feet in what might be termed
a close diluvial deposit, and in wnat the

bone dug up, is double the size of an

that had it been of ordinary size, one
would have supposed that its owner
had made his cr her exit from this
this vale of tears some 15 or 20 years
ago. Not a tooth is lost. The di.-cov

currency to these and other particulars
of this wonderful discovery.

A KepuMinati friend, writing from
Council Bluffs, calls our attention to
the fact that while Nebraska was pro
tected and saved to the cause of Union
ism through the operation cf a Regis
try Law, Pottawattamie nnd other bor
der counties in Iowa, suffered in like
proportion for the want cf a Registry
Law, because the fraudulent voters of
Nebraska, who were powerless for
mischief at home,' swarmed into Iowa,
and by their votes alone turned the
scale in favor of the copperheads in
two counties, and defeated a Union
Soldier for Senator in a district made
up of four counties. If Nebraska were
not in possession of better franchise
laws than this State, we might possibly
worry along a year cr two longr with"
the laws we have on this subject, but
as a mere muter of self protection a
Registry Law has become an inevita
