Inasmuch as I am in re
ceipt of numerous letters of inquiry
from oil parts of the Union in regard
to Lincoln, the Capitol of the State of
Nebraska, and the surroondingcountry,
propounding almost innumera! interrog
atories; which, if I should answer them
all in full, it would take all my time;
I will therefore with your consent, try
to ans.ver some of caid questions
through t'le columns of your pnper;
hoping it may be satisfactory to my
rfumerous correspondents and at the
tame time, not be uninteresting to your
I will state some of the questions
that have been propounded to me and
try to answer the fame as correctly as
I possiWiy can.
1st. In nearly all my letters is this:
Is the Capital of the State of Nebraska
permanently located at Lincoln? And
if so, by what authority?
Ans. The Capitol of Nebraska is
permanently located . at . Lincoln, , by
Governor David Luuer, tecrelaryof
Slate T. PT Kennard, and Auditor of
State John Gillespie; Commissioners
appointed by an att of the Legislature
of Nebraska, passed at their last Ses
sion, by which act jhey had full power
and authority to tiake said location-
there is no snados or doubt about tne
I eg air. j- and permanence of the loca
tion, j .
2nd. "What S.ate Building are lo
Adj. The Sta.e. House, for Execu
tive officer and tie Legislative Halls;
the State Univarsity; the Peniteotiery;
the State Agricul.ural College, Sec.
3d. "Are ary of said buildings
erected, or in protess of erection?
Ans. The Sitte House is under
contract, and the excavation' is done
-and the foundations are laiJ, and the
wjiks of the basement are nearly built.
There is a large force of workmen
engaged on the work under the direc
tion of Mr. John? Morris, the efficient
Architect and Superintendent, and the
structure is to be
of September 1SG3
4th "What funds are on hand to
build t'lese State buildings?'.
Ans. The Commisioners have
about SG0.000 on hand from the sale of
lots in Lincoln to build the State House,
and have a large reserve of lot, not
yet sold to back them up.
There are large appropriations of
public lauds from the UnueJ States,
sufficient to build all the other buildings(
and on a large scale.
5ih. Has the City of Lincoln been
laid off into lots, blocks, streets, etc.,
How large an erea of land does it con
tain, and how large are the lots, blocks,
streets, etc. .
Ans. The City has been laid out.
surveyed and platted. The blocks are
300 feet square, the lots are 50 feet
front, by 142 feet deep except on some
of the business streets, which are 2-5
feet by 142 feet.
The streets are 100 feet wide ex
cept the business streets which are 120
6th. -Has there been any sale of
lots, and if so, who sold them, ani
what did they bring at public sale?"
Ans, There was a public sale of
lots in Lincoln last September, by the
aforesaid Commissioners, at which sale,
lots brought from S50.00 up to atou1
S300.0C, according to location and
7ih. "What proportion of the town
was sold, and what was the net pro
ceeds of the sales?"
Ans. About one third of the vho!e
number of lots were sold, and the pro
ceeds of the sale amoutned to about
8th. "Does the proceeds of sales
belong to the State, or is it an individ
ual speculation of the Commissioners
and other parties, as has been hinted
by the Omaha papers?''
Ans. The land for the town site of
Lincoln was donated and deeded to the
State of Nebraska by myself and
other individuals, and surveyed, platted
and sold by the Commissioners, for the
use of the State, and not a dollar of
the money can be nsed for any other
purpose but to erect the public buildings,
as it was donated for that purposes
Further, the Legislature limited the
Commissioners ta locate the Capitol on
Slate lands, and only authorized them
to use the proceeds to build the Capital
of the State, or State House.
9.1i. "When will t!prp be another
public sale of lots, an i . t;i they be
bought at private sale, of wiiom, und at
Ans. There will probably be a sale
of lots sometime in Juue next. Lot
cannot be bought at private sale except
at second hand. The minimum values
set upon lots by the Commissioners run
from 25 to 200
Mr. James Sweet of Nebraska City,
has a large number of lots he will sell
on favorable terms.
10th. "II yourcity improving much,
and has it increased in population much
since the location of the Capitol there,
and what is its present population?"
Ans. There was in the town of
Lancaster, which is now a part of the
city of Lincoln, last August, when the
location was made, about four or five
houses, and three or four families.
Now, there are about one hundred
houses, either finished or in process of
and costly buildings.) and near three
hundred inhabitants in the city. There
are several hotels and boarding houses,
fire or six stores, two blacksmith shops,
a wagon chop, a tin shop. etc.
11th. "Is there a chance for me
chanics nd laborers there, and what
is the prospect in future for mechanical
Ans. There is a good chance for
mechanics and laborers, and the pros
pects for plenty of work and good
wages are very fair for next season.
There is plenty of rojrund plenty to
do. Come, all of you!
12'h. "Is your tewn site level, or
is it rolling or hilly ? ' And how is the
country around the town ?
Ans. The town site is level, and is
situated on a beautiful bench, elevated
about fifty feet above the level of Salt
Creek, and commands a view of the
country for many miles around, which
is lower and slightly rolling, and dot
ted over with farms and houses, and

13th. "Is your soil good, or is it
barren? And is there plenty of good
water in your town and county ?"
Ans. The soil here is about three
feet deep on the upland, and still deeper
in the bottom, and cannot be beat for
productiveness. There is an abund
ance of good water in all parts of the
14th. Have you any stone there,
and if so, what kind, and what is the
Capitol to be bui't of?"
Ans. We have plenty of rock, both
limestone and sandstone. The Capital
is to be built principally of limestone.
15th. Have you any Rail Roads,
and if not, what is your prospect for
Ans. We have no Rail Roads built
to this point yet, we have a fair pros
pect of having two Roads built in the
next two years; the Burliugton and
Missouri River R. R. by way of the
Salt Creek Valley, and the Iowa and
Missouri State Line Road, by way of
Nebraska City. There are other roads
in contemplation, but the two named
are the most favorable at present.

(wich is in the'Stait uv Kentucky,) S
December 23, 1867. )
When the Alrnity made nigger, he
ought to have made em so that mixin
with the sooprior race wood hev bin a
impossibility. The cuss uv missegena
lipn, and the hairid uv the DiinocrUy
uv Ohio for niggers, haz, between em,
left me in a condishen wich I hardly
supposed I shood ever find myself in.
I rite these lines, propped up in bed at
my boardin house, my face beaten to a
jelly, and perfectly kivered with sticin
planter; my nose, alluz the buty and
glory uv my face, is enlarged to twict
its fair proporshens; my few remainin
teeth hev bin nocked down my throat;
my lips resemble sausages ; my left ear
forever no more ; and wat little hair
wuz hangin about my venerable tem
ples, is gone ; my head is ez bald ez a
biUyard ball, and twict its normal size.
It come about thus :
ern counties uv Ohio. "In a reliably
Dimocratic township in that county is a
settlement uv niggers, who, in the" old
time, ran away from Kentucky, and
settled ther, where they cood hev wat
they earned, with wuz jist so much
swindled out u Kentucky's accumu
lated wealth. Uv course, Comin from
Kentucky, these niggers are many uv
em ez near white ez they kin be. One
uv em, who carried with him the name
uv his master, and, ez ho says, father,
Lett, is ez near a white man ez may
be, and ez he married a wench who
wuz a shade whiter than heather chil
dren are jist a shade whiter than both
uv em. Uv these he had ihjree daugh
ters, rangin from sixteen t j twenty.
Now, this Lett is a disturber. He
hed a farm uv perhaps 200 akers, and
wuz taxed heavy for skooj purposes,
but his children wuin't uv course allow-'
ed to attend the skool. None uv the
nigger children were. Bit this Lett
got the, ijee into his hed, that there
uzn't no piPprL?!yjnJjs. pay m taxea
witnout enjoyin some uv tne oenents
arizin from em; and aided and abetted
by the othe'r niggers, who wuz wicked
enuff to (omplain uv payin taxes to
the support uv white skools, he sent
his three daughters to the skool, direct-
in them to present themselves boldly,
take ther seats quietly, and study per
severity. They, did so. The skool
marm, who wuz a young huzzy, with
black eyes and naterel curls, from the
State uv Noo Hainpsheer, wher they
persekoot the saints, not only assented
to reseevin em, but very joyfully gave
em seats and put em inioclasses think
uv that with white children.
There wuz trouble iu that township.
I wuz sent for to wunst, and gladly I
come. I wuz never so gratyfiid in my
life. Hed small pox broken out in that
skool, ther woodeul hev bin half the
eggscitement in the township. It wuz
the subjick uv yooniversal talk every
where, and the Dimocrisy was a bilin
like a pat. I met the trustees uv the
township, and demanded ef they in
tended tamely to submit to this outrage ?
I askt em whether they intended to hev
ther children set side by side with the
desendants uv Ham, who wuzcondemed
to a posishen of inferiority forever ?
Kin you, I askt, so degrade yoorselves
and so blast the self respeck uv yoor
And bilin up with indignashen, they
answered, "never!" and yoonani
mously requested me to accompany
im to the skool house, that t'riey mite
peremtorily expel these disgusiin beins,
who hed obtrooded therselves among
those of a sooperior race.
On the way to the skool house, wich
wuz perhaps a mile distant, I askt theJ
Board ef they knowd those girls by
site. No,'' they replide they had
never seed em. " I have been told,"
sed I, that they are nearly white."
They are," said one of em, "quite
It matters not," sed I, feelin that
ther was a good opportoonity for ira
provin the occashen, ' it matters not.
Ther is suthin in the nigger at wich

by the way goes to prove that the dislike

Thus communio, we reached and en

" The Misses Lett are in this skool,"
sed she, rather mischeeviously, " and I
am happy to state that they are among
my best pupils."
" Miss," said I, sternly, " pint em

" Wherefore?" said she.
" That we may bundle em out," sed
" Bloss me !" said she," "I reely

" Well," sed this aggravtin skool
marm, wich wus from Noo Hampsheer,
" poot em out."'
But show me wich they are."
Cau't j-oo detect em sir? Don't
ther color betray em ? Ef they are so
oeer while that you can t select em at a
glance, it strikes me that it can't hurt
very much to let em stay.''
I wus serely puzzled. There wusn't
a girl in the room who looked at all
niggery. But my reputashun was at
stake. Noticin three girls settin to
gether who wus somewhat dark com-
plectid, and whose black hair waved, I
went for em and shoved em out, the
cussed school marm almost bustin with

"Dow t Advertise. The Louis

much belter for people who wish to
trade with you to hunt you up. It
gives your customers exercise, and
makes them healthy. Besides, if you

FEXDLETON'S KO.tD TO II LI.?.
In the fluctuations of the gold premi
um dnring the past few days, we have
had an opt illu5trati m of what might
be expected, in uninterrupted serie, on
putting into praciice Pendleton's sys
tem of greenback payment for Natianal
bandholders. The fact that 82 400,000,
000 of paper money, irredeemable and
inconvertible, as well as non-interest-bearing,
was in circulation, would
make specie resumption, and conse
quently stability of values a physical
impossibility. Every whifT of advrrse
or of fortunate intelligence, as in the
darkest days of war, inspiring a fear
that we were on the brink of still
greater and more serious troub'es than
any yet encountered, would exert a nat
ural effect upon the public mind, be
wildering its judgment of the future.
The gold-room in New York would
become a power in the land. Unscrup
ulous brokers would be battledores be
tween whom values would be shuttle
cocks, tossed to and fro.. Imagine a
condition of financial affairs in which
gold should be 240 on Monday morning
and 290 Saturday even:ng following,
with a fall ta.220 by thesubsequent
ness thrive under such vasodilations as
these? Who could tell what he was
worth? What would national credit
amount to? A speck of war in the
political horizon, even such - as the
arrest of the blatherskite, Train, might
shrink the purchasing power of greenbacks-one
fonrih. The discovery of
immensely richgoId mines in Montana
might carry it part me way back.
What the Genera) Government was
doing or might do would evermore be
measures of fluctuation. Nothiog
would be steadfast.
Have we - not enough of this?
Would anybody with $100 in his pocket,
worth S2 in coin, be any richer with
$200 there, worth $36? Wotlld itbuy
more pounds of sugar, yards of cloth,
quintals of fish, or barrels of flour?
Would it pay o laborer for more days
of work? Would the National debt be
any nearer extinguishment? Would
the people be better able to bear the
burden of taxation? These questions
voter yields himself to a plan which
would bind him, and his children, irre
vocably to the wheel of fluctuation.

The New York Sun says it is" dis
covered that the grandfather of the
Hon. George H. Pendleton was a tan
ner, while General Grant is not only
the son of one tanner and the brother of
another, but has been in the leather
trade himself, and was dealing in the
products of .the tan yard at Galena
when the war broke out and he was
called to another sphere of usefulness.'
But it may even be said that he con
tinued in the same business all through
the rebellion, for he gave a thorough
currying and dressing to Beauregard
at Shiloh, to Pemberton at Vicksburg,
to Bragg at Chattanooga, and to Leo
at Petersburg and Five Forks. It
would be rather curious if these two de
scendants cf tanners should be rival
candidates for the Presidency next au
tumn. But we warn Mr. Pendleton
that in that event all the experience cf
bis grandfather will not save him from
the most complete tanning that ever u
politician had to undergo.

trying to blow up, with powder, a

it could not be permitted, but refused
to believe that the rebels would carry
their threats into execution, and went

the friends of the school and children.
