Delivered at a Special Session of the Leg- islulure of the Commenced at 1S6S. oiuie oj j toraHtiit, Omaha, October 27, Senators and Representative .Members of the General assembly : lit the xercise of th- power vesied in the Governor bv the C-jnsiiiuu'on. and impelled by what I conceive to be the will of the entire petrpie of the S:aie, I have called jou together at this tiine for a Mugle and a pt;cl'ic purpose. An inielligtnt and free people will always prize most hitrLlv the exercise J of their poluicHl sovereignty at the bal lot-box in the election of their repre sentative.. They will never fail io.ee that it is the enlv iaferruard of their civil and religious raaon it is that our nght?. l or -.his own people attach great value to it in the choice who thall represent them in the administration of even their ordinary and hcal concerns. They give to it inerea-iing imponance as the irjfl-jence of its exercise extends to Ct tinty, Stat; and Naiienal aflairs ; and their interest reaches its hihes: limits, as ih v xerclse their sovereign ty in the t Inciion of the Ch:ef Kxecu uve oflicer of the American people Hence, or.ee in every four year, we wi'ne.-s the active political canvasss in nhicli o many of our citizens engage hence the gathering of those vast as .eiiibl.iaes 'far the discu jion of ques tions involved hence the increasing en'.hus:asiii of the people ai thoe times until the entire population "f the coun try seems swayed with in'ense interest The approaching election, to beheld on the 31 of November, will be the -first occa.ion on which our people, as citi zen? t;f ihe Slate of Nebra.-ka. will have the opportunity at exerci.-inr this high piivilege. They have looked for vvard to that day with patriotic concern They have becair.e animated in the di cu'sion of the issues involved, ar.d their i.-itere.-t dee p -n as (ha day of final de ci-R'ri npfruadies. No coriMderaliois of trivial sicn fi . ar.ee should be allowed tu jeopardise iheir light at-that time tc e-x:.re-s 'heir will s 'fieir will in apnointinc tht electors for this S'a:e It is imp 'rtant.and none know better thnn American citiicr.s how necessaty to the public welfare it is ; that thee acts of sovereignty on the part of the . - -1 - . - iaw. When so exercised all cood citizens, whi'tl.er found in ihe majority cr ininori.y, practically accept thj de cif ion as their own. and abide the result with the u'most cheerfuluessi lint when exercised in disregard or defiance of law, dissensions and ammo-ities are engendered, which will ever prove det rimeiital to the peace and welfare of the State. Ilei.ce it i. that the neces i:y of convening the Genera! Assem bly at this time, has arisen. The Coni'i'.ution of ih United States provides that Each Slate halI ppomt in such mnnner as the Legi.-lattire thereof nay direct, a numher of 1'lec tor, equal to the whole number cf Senators and Representatives to which S ihe State may be en'Hied in Longress. In consequence of the recent aJmis sion of Nebraska into tlie Union, the time prescribed by the Constitution for i - i the regular fssiim of the .Iejislature has not yet arrived. Since the admis sion, you have been once .convened bv the call of the Executive. At that time your attention was directed to ihe many important questions growtDg out of the Change in our domestic government, which were pressing upon us for im mediate action. An exigency that would arise nearly two year i:i the fu ture, and from circumstances w!iol!y new to the State, escaped the attention of all. It is now upon us and demands immediate action. You have, therefore, been called together, at this time, to make such provision for the appoint ment of Electors of President and V ice President of the United States cf America, as you in your wisdom may deem best. The framers of the Constititutico and the people of the whole country, in ratifying that Constitution, have wisely entrusted la the Legislature of the sev eral States the direction of the n.anner in which the electtrstshall be appointed. To you it is entrusted fir the State of Nebraska. It became my official du'y, under the cous.utution of the State, to call you together and to announce to yoi the purpese for which you were con vened. Without transcending that duty I might advance suggestions and make recommeLdatioas, but, having full con fidence in your wifdotn. and knowing th.n you cjine directly from the midst of the people, it is with pleasure that I leave the whole matter where the Con stitution of the United States and the people hve left it in your hands. It is made the duty or the Governor to "comi.iuuicate at every session, by message to the Legislature, the condi tion of the State." But. as no Legis la live action can be taken at this time upon the subjects noticed, I fhall speak only in brief and general terms, de ferring till the approaching regular ses sioa iu January, the more full and de tailed account necessary as a basis for definite and intelligent Legislation. I am happy to announce to you, and through you to the people, tbnt in the review ef our social and financial con dition. I am able.witb gratitude to the I Great Giver of all Good, to use almost J exclusively the language ot felicitation. I The fruitful eurth hits again yielded again the bountiful harvest a salubrious cli mate has been to the people a source of general health and the course of trade has given a reasonable commercial prosperity. Ti e tlesring of peace and safety with one or two exceptions on the frontier, have been largely enjoyed throughout the State. Of our educational interests I can hardly steak in so flattering terms as I could desire. While the government can not. and ought nt to interfere iu the religious affair of the people further than to secure to every individual entire freedom in the formation and exercise of his religious far.h, it can not regard with indifference the intelligence of the people. upon which so much depends the tone of public and private morals, as well as the public safety and ihe ma terial prosperity of the State. Ant, notwithstanding the many subjects of grei t moment, with the grave interests involved iu them, that will engage the attention of the next legislature, the perfecting of our system of public in struction, in importance surpas.-es them all. It should receive, and 1 trust will receive from that body the most carefu consideration. Our land interests have received constant attention. I am able to report that nearly all (he lands donated by the General Government in the "Enabling Act," have been selected and entered in the name of the State. That (hope entries will be speedily confirmed by the Department of the Interior at Washington admit of no question. The school lands in several of the counties have been brought into market and with gratifying results. From the bales in one county upwards of Kiftn eight Thousand Doll.-.rs have been al ready received and from another up wards of Twenty-nine 'Thousand. From ihe sale of a single sec:ion in Lancaster county upwards of Thirty Thousand Dollars were realized. The prices generally have been at a conoid erable advance beyond Seven Dollars per arce, the minimum fixed by the Legislature. About Twenty-five Thou-, and Dollars of the proceeds of thee sales have been iiivpted by the com missioners appointed for that purpose, in what are knowu as the Military benefit of the heat-, .Vjy-fIi.ULe bonds, to the chilJren of our own State instead cf paying it to capitalists abroad. The financial condition of the State is, upon the whole, most sati-factory. While the liabilities have not been ma lerially increased, the taxable property in the State has been largely augment ed. The u:,uual expense arising from locating aud entering the State lands ; ihe appropriation for the completion of the Tnormal School building at Peru; the almost double outlay in the enre of the insane and the cost incurred in the survey and sale of the school lands have been added to the ordinary ex penses of the State for the last two years. They have exhausted the fuud appropriated for general purposes, caus ing a few of our warrants to be thrnwn upon the market, al the same lime that i.L . I . f .1 !l there are thousands of dollars lying uu available in the treasury. Notwith sttinding these unusual disbursements from the treasury, the close of the fis cal year will present an exhibit highly satisfactory. While most of the States in the Uu- lon are heavily incumbered in conse- , quence of the recent war, Nebraska Is ' virtually free from debt. Our material resources are being rapidly developed by the increasing tide of immigration. Our facilities for commercial inter course are unprecedented in the settle ment of inland States. With the ear ly completion of the projected rai'roads that will stretch through the different portions of the State nnd connect with a system of almost interminable rail ways in the East, and with early com munication of like .character with all the markets of the West, our material prospects give brightest promise that wi h reasonable economy and prudence in the management of affairs under the blessings of Him who alone rules the destinitrs of nations, this S ate will go on in a career of unusual prosperity through succeeding generations. David Butler The New York Tribune concedes that Nebraf.a is the banner Iiepubli can State in the October elections. Her Republican majority k several times larger, tn proportion to her vote than that of any other Stale which held an election on the 13ih. The Republicans cf Nebraska have but lo work with the same energy, de termination, and unflagging inJus'.ry duriDg the remainder of the campaign to maintain that proud position and double her majority on ihe 3rd Novem ber. 'Doctor," said a lady, "I want you to prescribe for me." "There is noth ing the matter, madam," said the doc tor, after feeling ber pulse ; "you only need rest." "Now, doctor, just look at my tongue," she persisted. "Just look at it ; look at it 1 Now say, what does that need?" "I ihink that needs rest, too' said the doctor. Til iM.IVI(.. i Day of Thanksgiving for the Whole Country Jpjointed by the 1 resident By the President of the United Stttes of America. A PROCLAMATION In the year vvhich is now drawing to us end, the art, the skill, and the labor of the people of the United States have been employed with greater diligence and vigor, and on broader fields, than ever before, aud the fruits of the earth have been gathered into the granary and the storehouses in marveluus abun dance. Our highways have been length ened, and new and prolific regions have been occupied. We are permitted to hope that long protracted political aud sectional dissensions are, at no distant day, to give place to returning harmony ar d fraternal affeciou throjghout the republic Many foreign States enter ed liberal agreements with us, while nations which are far olT, and which, heretofore, have been unsocial and ex elusive, have become our friends. The annual period of rest which we have reached in Health and tranquility, and which is crowned with so much bless ings, is, by universal consent, a conven ient and suitable one for cultivating personal piety and practicing public de votion. I, therefore, recommend that Tuesday, the 2G h day of November next, be set apnrt and observed by all the people of the United Stales as a day of public praise, thanksgiving and prayer to the Almighty Creator and Divine Ruler of the universe, by whose everwatchful, merciful and gracious providence alone. States and Nations, no. less than families and individual men, do live and move and have their being. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this twelfth day of Octooer.in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight, and of the Indepen l. s dence of the United States the ninety third. ANDREW JOHNSON. By the President: William H. Seward, Secretary of Slate. Young man, did you ever think how terrible that word aonnds ? Do you ver thnk what misery and woe you bring upon your friends when you de grade your mauhood by getting drunk? Oh, it is a fearful thing thus to trample under fool the high claims that God nnd man have upon you! Drank! How it rings in the ears of a loving wife! How it makes the heart of a fond mother bleed? How it crushes out the hopes of a doting father, and brings reproach and hame upon loving sisters Drunk! See him as he leans against some friendly house, he is ready to fall into lie opening jaws of hell, unconscious Ji his approaching fate. The wife, with tearful eyes and aching heart al the window to hear her husband's foot steps, but, alas they come not! He is drunk! The husband and parent is drunk ! He is f-pending his time and money when he should be at home enjoying the comforts and joys of his own fami ly circle. Drunk' He is spending for liquor the means of support, while his family is staryiug for food and suffering for clothing. His reputation is gone. His friends, one by one. are reluct antly leaving him to his miserable fate. He goes down to hi grave unhonor- ed and unsung. Drunk! Standing Fire A young soldier going to his barrack room to sleep for the first time, quietly knelt down to pray in the presence of his comrades This act was a signal for a storm. Hisses, shouts and whistling filled the room with hideous noises. Bells were thrown al the kneeling Boldier, and one man leaped upon the bed and shouted in bis ear. But he was unmoved to the end of the prayer, when he arose and quietly went to his repose. The next night his ccmrades eagerly watched to see if he would dare to pray a second time. To their surprfse.he again drop ped on his knees, and ihey saluted iiim with the same noises as cu the previous evening. lie did not flinch, however. The third eventng he kneeled down and prayed regardless of their contin ued noise. Ou the fourth evening the noi-e was less; on the Alth it was still less, aud on the 6th one of the soldiers exclaimed "He stands fire. He's gen uine. After that no one disturbed him He had overcome opposition, he had won respect. "What is your notion of a true phy sician?"asked a medical professor of a student, to which the latter replied: rile is an unfortunate gentleman who s every day called upon te perform the miracle reconciling health with intemperance." A JIEW CAXI5IOATE. We timidly suggest another candi date for the consideration of the per plexed Democracy. It is hard to have a great party go by default for want of a representative, especially when New York furnishes a man with a reputation in jre extended even than Seymour, and of as positive character as Gen. Ii!air. A friend writes up that intelligent peo ple in Paris ask "who is Seymour," and "was he a general under Lee?" New York present a - candidate whose name is familiar to Paris and London. We refer to Mr. John Allen. No- 30o Water st. Sir. Allen earned sudden and dazzling renown as The "Wickedest Man in New York." He was an object of penitence. He at tended prayer meeting-. He urged his companions in crime to -lrustin Je sus" and "Prepare to meet their God " He propose to enter the ministry, and to go over the country as an example of saving grace. But one thiDg John would not do. He would not abandon the Democratic party. -'Close my bar" he said, but leave me the Constitution! 'Hold Prayer Meetings, but don't com 'ppl me to associate with niggers! Break my gin bottles, but don't ask "me to go back on Seymour ! I can give up the dance business, but I can- not eive up my Democracy !" Of course such a "conversion" could have but one result. So long as John clung to the Democracy there couU be no repentance, and so we find him be fore Justice Dowling for "keeping a disorderly house." His address lo thai Judge is diplomatic. He talks like Seymoi r. Thu3 : Allen If no charge is made I prom ise to have nothing to do with politics. Judge Dowling Do you mean to say that politics had anything to do wi'.h your arrest ? Allen I don't say anything at nil about it, your Honor. This is just the position that Mr. Seymour held before the Convention. Seymour had nothing to do with poli-' tics and was Dominated. Allen would have nothing to do with politics, and he was held to bail. Plainly, such devo tion to Lemocracy needs encourage ment. Here is a man who would rath er be a Democrat lhan a grotleman or a Christian, who i a conspicuous mem ber of the party, and w ho will probably cast more votes than any ten Kepubli over ihe world, ai d hii Democracy ha? passed unscathed through the fires of hundred prayer meetings. Sx:h a man would rally the pary. and lead to the erand ' uprising" for which the IVorld is clamoririg Tribune! I never et on the man who is al ways tell. eg what he would have done if he hid been in f: I have noticed this kind never get there. The fear of the law here, and the law hereafter, has furnished us some very clever tpecimens of Christianity. t ooi don i know their strength ; if they did, they would keep still. Trud happmess seems to consist in wanting all we can enjoy, and then getting all we want. Beauty never dies ; it is like truth ; they both have an immortality some where. Truth is radical ; fiction is conserva tive. If you would make vourself agreea ble, wherever you go, listen to the grievances of others, but never relate your own. Men never seem to get tired cf talk ing of themselven, but I have heard them when they showed signs of weak ness. Common sense is most generally des pised by those who haven't got it. Although mankind worsl ip wealth, I will give them credit for one thing ihey seldom mistake it for brains. Treason is one of those stains that wash well. Shut New England out in ihe cold I should as soon think of shutting the cold out of New England. Monuments are poor investments the bad don't deserve them, and the good don't need them. The best way to ksep a secret is to forget it. It isn't so much trouble ia get rich as it is to tell when we have got rich. If a man wants to get at his actual dimensions let him visit a graveyard. It is a good plan to know many peo pie, b;it let only few know you.. 1 don t care ho.v much a man talks if he will only say it in a few words Anybody can tell where lightning struck last, but it takes a smart man to find out where it is going to strike next time this is one of the differences be tween learning and wisdom. I have got a first rate recollection but no memory. I ran recollect dis tinctly of losing a ten dollar bill, but can't remember where, to save my life. There are some folks whose thoughts can't be controlled ; they are like twins, they can't be had, and they can't be stopped. A conductor of a newspaper, speak ing of a cotemporary, says: "He was for.) erly a member of Congress, but rapidly rose till he obtained a respect able position as an editor a noble ex ample cf perseverance under depres sing circumstances. ALL, AHOUT rni.TI(J. Movable types for printing were nut used until the 15th century. " , Books were printed by the Chines aud other Eastern nations from en graved blocks long before the inven tion of type. Johannes Guttenburg is generally believed to have been the first manu facturer of moval le- type. - v An edition of Don a. us was the first book printed from okuvaUe typs. Tim first letters were characters im itating band writing. r Priming was introduced inU Pari in 1470; into London four years later. Roaiau type were first made in 1465; Italic, about the year 1500. Type founcing was formerly a part of the business of a printer, and was declared a distinct art by a decree of the Star Chamber in 1637, The largest size of type used for books is Great Primer; the smaller si zes are English! Pica,7 Small Pica. Long Primer, Bourgoise, Minion. Non pareil, Agate, Pearl, Diamond and Brilliant. - - Pearl is the smallest type found ia ordinary printing offices. Agate is the smallest type used for setting advertisements in any Ameri can newspaper. It is in favor with those papers, Which, from their large editions and the great demand for their columns, are necessi tated to economize space. The type most in use for advertise ments is Nonpareil. Those papera which use larger are generjy of a poor er class for whose advertising culiiinn. there is little demand.
