We are deslroai of receiving correspondence from
all parts of the State, relative to the material Inter
eU of the country, together with aUh other nut
er as'contribators may deem of interest.
Where will the B & M. R. R. cross
ihe Missouri, nnd what lioe will it take
after crossing, is the all absorbing
question in this locality. We under
stand the people of Rock Bluffs and
o'.her points below, in this county, are
doing all in their power to secure the
crossing of the road at tneir respective
localities. This is all right and proper,
and only argues that if Plattsmouih ex
peels the road to cross here, her citi
zens must be up and dcicj.
The important item of eight miles of
road can be saved by the B. & M R.

This, at S30.000 per mile the ava
rage cost of railroads makes the neat
sum ef S210.000 in cash saved in the
building alone, besides the gt eat aaviug
in the running expenses in umo to
come. - We hope, and have reason to
believe, the company will make
thorough examination before deciding
upon a route through the county.

Was located at Lincoln during the
recent session of the Legislature, and
ample provisions made for erecting the
building. A bill was alio passed or
ganizing the University Association,
authorizing the Governor to appoint the
first board of reeents. The building
of the University was entrusted to the
Governor, Secretary and Auditor, as
Commissioners for the State, to be
governed by act authorizing the erec
lion of the Capitol building so far as
the same is applicable. Provision was
made for the sale of tha unsold lots in
Lincoln, also for twenty sections of Sa
line lands, or so much thereof as ne
cessary and the application of the
funds to the erection of an Insane Asy
la:n, a State University, and Agricul
lural College. It is the expectation
that these buildings will all be com pie

There has been much speculation in
democratic circles relative to Gram's
Cabinet, also as to his general policy
of government. They have constantly
flattered themselves with a hops that
ha would select milk-and-water kind
of men for Cabinet officers, aad that
he would conduct the affairs of Gov
eminent in a manner odious to radical
Republicans. But all these little dem
ocratio hallucinations have been scat
tered to the wind by the old veteran
himself, in his utterance that he would
mt ousider himself as doing justice to
the country or to tha party that placed
him in power by selectingany man for a
Cabinet officer who was not a thorough
Republican daring the war and since
its close. This is characteristic of the
great hero of the age, and is but an
evidence that copperheads are as igno
rant of his abilities as a statesman as
they appeared to be of his abilities as
a General. lie has given ineta an
Appomattox in Generalship, and he
will now give them an Appomtttox in
Statesmanship. '
The time has now come when the
people of this locality must determine
whether they will have a railroad or
not. The B. &M. Railroad Company
eland ready to push their line west
ward through the county to Lincoln,
provided the people of the county will
do certain things, one of which is to
vote them a certain amount of county
bunds to aid in the building of the
road. This looks to some like a hard
ship, and we have heard men , argue
that the county shoud not vote bonds
to the Railroad Company because, it
was paying the company to put money
in their own pockets. Did these men
ever figure up how much taxable prop
erty the Railroad Company would put
into the county? Jut think of it the
Railroad Company asks Cass county to
give them tayS200,000 in our county
bonds, which might sell for, S150.C00;
and for this help on our part the com
pany places over 1,000,000 worth of
taxable property in the county in the
shape of read bed, rolling stock and
depot buildings, besides the great in
crease in value of property already
here, and the hundreds of thousands ef
dollars worth of property that wculd
come into lhe county in consequence of
the railroad. The railroad property
alone will pay tax enough to liquidate
the bonds they ask of us, and the prop
erty of every man in the county will
be trebled in value. Do the people
of Cass desire a railroad and all the
attending benefits, or nre they willing
to plod along in the old fogy style, and
sell their produce for ten per cent, less
than ibeir neighbers because they have
I no railroad to take it to market. As
' -
we said at the ouHet. the time ha ar-
rived when the people of the county
must determine this qMesiion for them-
selves, and we can hardly entertain
, . .L j. : :n
a floutl as lo waai ineir uttisiuu wm
be. Is there an individual in the
county who would refuse to give his
note for 200(100, payable say in
thirty years, for Sl.000,000 worth of
property down? The railroad company
are ready to give us this kind of a bar-
gain, and the question is will we close
the contract? We think no sane man
will refuse to accept the terms, any
more than he would if it were an indi-
vidual enterprise. As to the line of
road through tne countv. we are as
much in the dark, propably, as any one
else. We only know this much in re
gard to i , that the bonds should be is-
sued on the express condition that tbe I
road should run westward through ihe
county, and leave the ballance to te de-
termined hereafter. If our own desires I
were to rule the rulject we should have
the road cross the river at Plattsmouih
and proceed thence westward as near
through the centre of the county as
possible, or if one side of a central
line west, we would have it run south
of said line. The reasons for this de-
sire on our part, as well as on the part
of every cit zen of Plattsmouih,
obvious it would drain a much larger
scope of country into Plattsmouih than
could possibly be drained if the road
ran along the Plane river. iVesay
this line wculd be our choice, and we
hope the company may be able to see
it to their advantage to take this route;
yet we are ready ai.d willing to help
the building of the road let it run where
it will in the county. We hope it may
make Plattsmouih its starting point on
the river, and shall do all we can to
secure that olject; yet should the com
pany Mad some point on the river be
low this, in the county, that would be
mere advantageous as a crossing, we
will say amen, and try and get a toot

of the country. At the recent session
of the Legislature a law was enacted
dafininc the rights of occupying claim
ants, which will, to some extent, re-

this vicinity whose titles are, to say ihe
lsast. not perfect; and it is also a wel
known fact that parties are engaged in
the business of hunting up all these
apparently defective titles and getting
quit-claims to the . property from ihe
original owners. .All the recent en

presiding genius over these exhibitions,
we read, dwells "powerfully" on the
progressiveness of spiritualism. It
seems to us that there is less progress
than this gentle being sees, for now a
days the medium asks in a winning
and most beseeching lone of voice
'will the spirits please communicate? "

George B. Graff, Pres't Trunk Rail
Road, Nebraska:
Dear Sir: Since making a recon
imisauce of your road from the Kansas
State line to this point, my atteniion
has been called to tbe fact that many
of your citizens along the route do not
seem to unders'and, or, at least, fail to
appreciate the impoitanl advantages
which will accrue to themselves and
the State by the railroad connections it
will make to the north and east of Ne
braska, as well as the ttimulanl the
construction will have to push rai'roads
to the north of Omaha, the increased
value it will give to roads extending
westward to the Missouri river. The
Trunk road must be regarded as but a
short link in the long chain of railroads
leading from St. Louis to points both
north and west of your State, as well
as giving a direct line of rail from
these points to the Gulf of Mexico iu
several directions, including lhe ebon
est line to the sea by the Ksnsas City
and Galveston Railroad, now in rapid
progress of construction.
The St. Louis "connection will for
the present be over ihe North Missouri
Railroad by its west branch to Kansas
City, in Missouri, and by the MiMouri
Pacific, fiuished and in operation to
Leavenworth city. Befere it will be
possible for you to complete your road
from the southern boundary of your
State along the Missouri river to Oma
ha, lhe line from Leavenworth to the
Slate line will be completed and in op
eration, which will give tbe people of
Richardson county,' near Rulo. a direct
outlet south, by two line, to Si. Louis.
The Missouri Valley Railroad is now
putting down its track from a point op
posite Kansas City to a point opposite
Atchison and Leavenworth city, where
bridges will be buili toon, and where
it id now proposed to construct a trans
ter frry similar to the one built at St
Charles, on the Norm Missouri Kail-
oad, by which cars are rapidly moved
rom one side of the river to the -ther.
Tite bridge at Kansas Ciiy is now in a
orward elate of comple ion. which
when finished will give an outlet over
the North Missouri Railroad, to St.
Louis, and by the various roads from
that point, both east and south. At
Kansas City two outlets east will be
had. one by ihe road leading to Quincy.
11., and the other over the west branch
of tbe North Misiouri road to Hanni.
bal. aud thence east by roads which
will soon be completed. At St Louis,
the southern connection will soon be
completed over the Iron Mountain rail
road, which connect at Columbus. with
he Mobile & Ohio Railroad, culling
the whole southern system of railroads
diagonally to the gulf of Mexico, from
the mouth of the Ohio river.
As it is the aim of all interior coun
tries to communicate with tlie sea by
the shortest line, I will direct your at
tention to the progress of the roads be
tween Kansas City. Missouri, and
Galveston on the Gulf. Track is now
being laid from Kansas City in the
direction of fort Scott, one hundred
miles south, which it will reach this
year; and will be pushed on to the
Indian lands near the southern loun
dary of Missouri without delay, with
the intention of a continuance until it
meets the lines cf roads coming north
from Galveston. The attention of the
Legislatures of Missouri, Arkansas
and Texas is now being called to this
great question, ard ihe opinion pre
vails that the whole road to the sea on
this route will be speedily made and
in operation. It is to be . hoped that
this great question, so i i portant to
your State, will receive proper atten
tion at the hands of yourself and diree
tors, by calling on the State lo grant
such aid as to enable you to secure
auch important advantages at an early
In connection with your trade in the
export of cereals, it is proper to men
tion that the North Missouri Railroad
Company has extended its track to the
grain elevators in the city, where grain
can be shipped to New Orleans, or to
any part of Europe or South America,
at the lowest possible rates. The
extensive barge sysem, lately intro
duced, for the iran-poriaiion of grain
in bulk to the sea from St. Louis, has
srreaily reduced the cost of freight over
ihe old plan, and savi- co-t of sacks, a
large item heretofore in the expenses
of ihe producer and shipper.
1 will, as they occur to me, address
von on o her important matters not
mentioned ir thi-s letter. In conclu
sion, I will barely allude to the fact
that, as far as I have examined the
route proposed for. your road no engi
neering difficulties are presented which
cannot be overcome at a moderate ex

Many are under the impression that

The assessment being merely a valu
ation of property, it becomes uecetsary
to mike a levy of lax '8, (n the first
Monday of July as required by law,)
and such a levy is a lien on property.
Consequently the iaxe on real es'aie
sold before the firs-t Monday of July,
should be paid by the grantee; if sold
after the levy of lhe 1st Monday of
July, by the grantor.
Sec. 51. No demand for taxes is
necessary, but it shall be the duty of
every person subject to taxation to
