Last week we made the trip to Lin
Dola in tompany with Prof. Miller
Gen. Livirjjrston and Rev. Betts. We
went by way of eight mile Grove
Weeping Water Falls, and Stove
Creek. The distance by this route is
not to exceed forty-seven or forty-eight
miles, and the road can be thor.ened
in several places so that it will not be
more than forty-five miles. It is an
excellent road, level and solid, with
every stream and gully substantially
bridged. We made some observations
in regard to he country, improvements,
etc., as we passed along, and are more
than ever convinced thai Nebraska is
one of the finest countries that the sun
ever shone upon. When we take into
consideration the large amount ofsur
plus grain raised in Nebraska, and
then compare the small proportion of
land under cultivation with the hun
dreds of thousands of acres yet lying
idle, one cannot but think that Nebras
ka can supply the world with bread.
All along through the settled portions
of the country ws saw hu?e piles of
straw where threshers had been at
work, and monstrous bins of corn and
wheat. Hundreds of acres of pruiri
have been broken up this season, and
new houses dot the prairie in every di
rection. In the vicinity of Eight Mile
Grove we notice that the old settlers
are getting things fixed about them
very comfortable, with commodious and
comfortable dwellings, excellent frame
barns that remind one of the German
settlements in Pennsylvania or the
south-eastern part cf Ohio, and many
other things which denote a perma
nancy hardly to be expected in so tew
a country as Nebraska.
At Weeping Water Fulls, about
nine or ten miles from the Grove, we
were agreeably surprised to see so
many permanent and even elegant im
provements. The first thing that at
tracts the eye upon arriving at the Fall
is the large three story mill of Reed &
Clinton. This is, probably, the finest
mill in the State, and was built at a
cost of about 18,000. The whole
structure is of stone, cf which there is
an inexhaustable supply in that vicinity.
E. L. Reed, Esq., is the managing
partner, and under his supervision the
establishment has been doing a heavy
business for the past year or two.
They make a first class article of flour, 1
large quantities cf which are shipped
after supplying the surrounding coun
try. Mr. Reed also keeps an excel
lent store for the accommodation of the
people in that viciuiiy. Besides the
mill, there is ene of the finest atone
School houses in the State, a beautiful
stone church and rectory, and several
very nice frame dwellings. Along
the valley of the Weeping Water,
abve the Fal's, are seme very fine
farms, all of which present a thrifty
appearance. Among the best of these
may be classed that of Hon. J. E
Doom, which is nboit three miles west
of the mill.
About a half mile west of Mr. D's
place the road crosses to the south side
of Weeping Water, and passes over the
high prairie to Stove Creek, a distance
of about eight miles from Reed's mill,
here we found Mr. Russell, a native
cf Ohio, who provided for our party and
animals with true western hospitality.
Leaving Mr. Russel's, we found one
vast expanse of prairie ttrelthiog away
to the Nemaha on the south. Weeping
Water on the north, and Stephens'
creek on the west. The present road
follows the "divide" between the Ne
maha and the Weeping Water, and the
distance between Stove creek and Ste
phen's creek is about fifteen miles. It
is one of the best natural roads we ever"!
traveled over, being as lerel and hard
as a house floor the greater part of the
way The road can be shortened
about three miles between these two
points, with the expense of one small
bridge (for the erection of which our
County Commissioners made an appro
priation of $50 last Monday.)
Shortly after crossiug Stephen's
creek we came in eight of the Capital
City, which can be seen for several
miles from any point of compass. We
had not been there eince the selection
of the sight by the Commissioners; and
notwithstanding reports we were much
surprised at the rapidity of its growth.
Houses had sprung up in every direc
tion, and many more were in process of
erection. Carpenters, reasons, team
eters, laborers, all were busy; and the
general battle rnad-j one think that this
Several substantial stone buildings
have already been fini.-hed irsce we
were last there, and we found our
friend Capt. Djnivan had erected a
fine frame hotel, which was crowded
to its utmost capacity with men seeking
their fortunes at the new Capital City.
Mr Sweet has the walls of his large
Hone building up to the second floor,
and Mr,
Dawsou'stwo Mory Mone re;
idence h nearly completed
Si We
entered the town we saw a man sur
veying a lot, and about four hours af
terward we chanced to pass ih it way
and found he had a house already up
and enclosed. We mention this as an
illustration of the spirit which pervades
the people there. The excavations for
the Capitol building have been made,
ana preparations were in progress for
laying the foundation. We had inten
ded mentioning specifically some of the
principal improvements of Lincoln city,
but as this article has already been
"strung out" much longer than we in
tended at the outset we will merely say
that about seventy new buildings have
been erected since the location was
made, and judging from appearances
we should think as many more would
be erected between thi lime and next
ring. There was great demand for
laborers, mechanics and building mate
rials, and we were assured by parties
there that many more buildings would
be put up this fall if the materials could
be had.
The copperhead press of the country
does not appear to think near so much
of Gen. Grant as they once did. They
do in truih think the same of him, end
all other Union soldiers as they did
during the war which is that he
should have been whipped bv the re
bels, and if Gen. Grant should be the
Republican nominee for President in
1S6S the same set of men who opposed
him during the war will be found in
opposition to him again. The JS'eics in
peaking of the probabilities of Grant's
nomination, says "least of all a milita
ry human being can run fast enough to
reach the White House in ihe year of
our Lord liC9." That is a very can-
id statement of the feelings of the
Democratic leaders. It is military
men of all others they are opposed to,
and especially those who fought the
rebtls hardest and most successfully
he greater the earnestnest of the
military man during the war, ihe more
intense is the hate which genuine cop
perheads have toward him Whether
the chances of a "military human be
ing" are "least of all" for the White
louse there is one thing apparent to
the most obtuse mind, and that is that
least of all" would the copperheads be
willing to have a successful and earn
est "military human being" in the
residential chair. Should such an
one be nominated by the Republican
paity, our Democratic friends can rest
ssured that be will be the next Presi
dent, however much sorrow it may
cause them. We will be more gener
ous than the JVews, and say that great
est of all would be the chances of a
military human being" on the Demo
cratic ticket, provided he had been a
ilitary man with a gray uniform.
Such an one would command the en-
lire strength of the copperhead patty,
and the ex rebels in the South would
not stay away from the polls, as many
of them did at the recent election for
delegates to the State Conventions.
f Gen. Grant should be nominated on
the Republican ticket and Mr. Robert
E. Lee upon the Democratic ticket, the
vote would be a pretty fair test of par
ty strength. A large number of nor
thern Democrats would, probably,
throw eff on Mr. Lee, but then they
really have no business in the copper
head party they do not believe the
eaders are really rebels; but what
the party would loose in this way they
would probably gain by the extra ex
ertions at the South.

The people uf Liucoln City and Lan
caster county held a meeting some two
or three weeks ego to consider railroad
matters, and determine what they
would do towards encouraging the ear
ly commencement of some line of road
to that City. After dcussing the
prospects of the various roads and
talked of roads, they decided that the
Burlington and Missouri River Rail
road exiension was the most tangible,
and they accordingly passed a resolu
tion akii!g the County Commissioners
of Lancaster county to submit to a vote
of the people the proposition to issue
S'200,000 in bonds to be taken as stock
in said road. After having studied
ever this a few days, and realizing the
great importance and benefit of Rail
roads another meeting wag called for
last SaturJay, which we had the pleas
ure of attending, in company with Gen.
Livingston and Prof. Miller, of this
city. At this meeting the people of
the county concluded to offer a further
stimulus to the railroad enterprise by
asking the Commissioners to submit
the question of taking another SI 00.-
000 in stock in the first road that was
completed from the Missouri river to
their city. At this meeting a strong
effort was made by residents of Ne
braska city to get the proposition sub
mitted in favof of some road which
might be built from that place, and, we
are sorry to say, some of the speakers
from that city manifested a great deal
of ill feeling towards the B. & M. R.
R. Co., and denounced it in unmeas
ured terms. This aroused Gen. Liv
ingston somewhat, and he soon con
vinced those present that the assailants
of this Company really knew nothing
about the company, their road or thir
proposed action. The Gen. is too well
posted in regard to the B. & M. R. R.
R. Co., and takes too much interest in
it to allow its malicious assailants to go
unrebuked and unenlightened in re
gard to it. Prof. Miller also defended
the company against the aspersions of
these individuals who appeared won
derfully "soured" against it for the sole
reason that the officers thereof had
promptly rejected all offers and propo
sitions to run their road by way of Ne
braska city. We said we were sorry.
The words hardly express the feelings
we had in listening to the remarks of
one or two Nebraska city men. They
were calculated lo engender feelings
which should be kept away. Not only
that, but they were calculated to injure
the people of Lancaster county, inas
much as whatever impairs confidence
in any road leading lo that city and
thereby throws obstacles in its way is
an injury to the people. The true pol
cy for iha pooplc ,yf i Lincoln and Lan
caster county is Wsracourage auy and
all roads, either in progress or pro
posed, which are likely to be built to
that city. This should also be the pol
icy cf every man and every locality that
desires to see the city and county suc
ceed. As the B. & M. R. R. ft. Ex
tension is, at present, the only road
which has a grant of lands south of the
Platte river in Nebraska, and is the
only one which is in a thape that aid
can be tendered it, it is not strange
that the people of Lancaster should, at
'.his lime, show a little more interest in
it than in roads which are only in pros
pective and have nothing tangible upon
which to work. When there is a
grant of lands obtained, a survey made,
lands selected, and an actual location
of the line made by some organized
and reliable company, from either Ne
braska" city, Brownville, or any other
point, then the people of Lancaster will
probably look upon said line of road as
.hey now look upon the B. & M. R. R.
R.,and then ihey will probably feel like
giving (as they should do) the same
encouragement to it that thv:y now de
sire to gi?e ihe B. & M. R. R. R.

The followng, which we clip from
the Glenwood Opinion, shows what
can and has been done by a young man
in this western country, and how it is
done. The only material difference
between western Iowa and Nebraska
consists in the fact that in Nebraska
you have a little better market for
grain and can get your land for noth
ing under the homestead law. There
are millions of acres of it here inviting
the plow, which only requires to be
"tickled with a hoe and it will laugh a
harvest!'' But let us see how ihe young
man did of which the Opinion speaks:
Two years ago there came lo this
county, from one of ihe Eastern States,
a young man whose name we are de
sired to suppress. He was not particu
larly burdened with this world's goods
his sole fortune consisting of one dol
lar and eighteen cents. He, however,
possessed whal is better; good health,
and a vigorous frame. He did not tar
ry long in our town, but struck out for
the farming dUtricts, where he was
assured that employment awaited him .
During that fall and winter he chopped
wood, did chores. did everything he
could to turn an honest penny. Iu the
spring (1S6G) hefouud that his sav
ings amounted to eighty five dollars.
He hired twenty-eight acres of land
adjoining the furm of the good people
with whom he had found a home,
ploughed it with a itam for whose use
he exchanged hand labor, and planted
it all in corn Throughout the summer
all the time not required by his owu
crop, ne industriously nileu by work
ing out. In the fall of that yeir he
harvesied fourteen hundred and nine
teen bushels of corn which he sold the
following February (1867) for fifty
five cents a bushel total $780,45.
To this he added other savings of two
hundred and ten dollars, giving hitn n
total cash capital of nearly a thousand
dollars He bought one hundred and
twenty acres of improved land at five
Ar liars per acre End went to work on
his own farm with his own horses and
implements. This summer he harvest
ed a large crop of small grain which he
is now selling at SI, 40 per bushel. A
fine field of corn is partially harvested,
and will Without doubt yield handsome
returns. Any one pasting by his farm
this autumn will observe that he has a
house of comfortable proportions and
if they get a glimpse of the interior ar
rangeinants, they may fut iher observe
that he has taken a handsome daughter
of Mills county to be master of his
leart and home.
This Is not ah isolated case. Plen
ty of such are to be found if inquiry be
instituted. Why. then, do young men
hang around the crowded thoroughfares
of the ea?t? Competence awaits them
in the fei tile field.- of the west. In

destroy ihe Uovernment? Shall he!
who brought this misery upon the State

f this be so, then all this precious blood
of our brave soldiers and officers so
freely poured out will have been wan
tonly spilled. All the victories won by
our noble armies will go for naught.
and ail ihe battle fields which have
been sown with dead heroes during the
rebellion will have been made memo

The foregoing is from the speech of
Andrew Johnson, at Nashville, on
June 7th, 1S64, his nomination
for Vice President. Now, while the
rebel States are being reorganized on
much more generous plan than he
suggests, it will to gocd to compare
whal he then said was right with the
position he now occupies. The traitor
talked like a true man then, and act
ike a rebel now. In that same speech
he affirmed ihat "traitors must take
back seats ia the work of restoration,
that he had "ceased to be a citizen"
and had "forfeited his right to vote."
Now, the perfidious demagogue is ag
onized because the loyal are made citi
zens and allowed lo vote, while only a
small number of the traitors are exclu
ded! If Johnson ever reads that
peech, what a scoundrel he must
think himself. Burlington Uauk Eye

might have been expected. The slight
pretense of loyalty has been thrown
off. The Rebel colors which were
laid at our feet at Appomattox Court

The pian era no longer profess them
selves the "besi friends" of the color
ed people, and no longer conceal their
purpose to trample the freedmen down
u to the dust, from which it took four
years of war lo raise them. The Ri h
moud Enquirer, in a brandy-and-ihun-der
leader on "The Northern Elec
tions," threatens us with war, proscrip
tion, and a repetition cf the massacres
of New Orlean "Northern senti

resisting to the last extremity that viie

suffrage. The Republicans now are
