Held last Monday, resulted in the
defeat of the entire Republican ticket,
by majorities ranging from 7 to 54.
A word of explanation is probably
necessary as it is a well, known fact
that the Republican party bas a clear
majority in the city of twenty-five or
thirty otes. Our readers- will re
member that we gare warning, some
mo weeks ago, of the contemplated
fusion, but the workers of the party
fett little uneasiness,' supposing Repub
lictns who felt interested in the choice
of Candidates would turn out to the
primary meeting and entfearorto get
men of tbeir choice nominated instead
of staying away and then supporting a
a mixed ticket jon the ground tnai tUcy
were not suited with their party nomi
nees. The time and place of holding
the Republican Convention was pub
lished and there were aver fifty voters
present and took part in the selection
of the ticket, and not a word of dissat
isfaction was expressed with the choice
made. This convention .' adjourned,
about 9 o'clock Saturday evening, and
directly after a number of Democrats
and a few Republicans met at th 3 of
fice of Dr. John Black, where the suc
cessful ticket was made op by a few
individuals, without any notice being
given of (he meeting or any meeting
at all being organized. A ticker was
written out and banded around among
half a dozen men for suggestions, and
bat is the -ticket that was successful.
We have not one word to say against
any man upon that ticket, but ws would
be doing injustice to the party, to allow
the matter to pasa without recording
our disapproval of such- a course by
Republicans. The ticket brought oat
by those few individuals had on a Re
publican for Mayor, and two out of the
five candidates for Aldermen were Re-
publicans.and the other Arte Democrats.
There is a tie between one. of the Re
publicans oo that ticket and 6ne of the
candidates on the Republican ticket, so
that it throws the City Council three
Democrats to one Republican, and one
man to be chosen yet. We shall pass
no words of censure upon any ' man
who saw fit to support this pixed ticket,
even though ne were present at and
took part in the RepuHUicArconvenuon
fflTT Z-
ballot Tn opposition- to the candidates
I uhn wrs aalerlsxt ' vpl van mnat anv
that we hope no true man will allow
personal prejudices to break up , the
party, as it most and will break if such
actions are ' persisted in. WV now
have the humiliating spectacle of see
ing a City Council controled by Dem
ocrats, in a city with a clear. Republi
can majority,1 and of ' being told by
Democrats With defiant mein that our
nartT is broken up and that we. dare
. - ...,........
not run a party ticket in the county
next fall or tbey will beat us. . Re
publicans of Plattsmouth and Cass, are
you willing tosee .the country again
pass into the hands of .the .Demociats ?
It is for you to decide. You can easily
turn it over to them if you so desire.
We say this not in cesure of what has
been done, but to warn Republicans of
what parties in Cass are striving for.

A. Albright, wholesale and retail dealer
in Boots and Shoes, was the liberal do

that while w demand now existed in the
familv for such an artiele. it would be

THURSDAY, .... APEIL "8, 1869.
We aredesirouiof recelring eorrespondenee from-
11 Pbrtsbf the State, relative to the material inter
ests fcf the country, togetner with such other mat
eras contributors may deem of Interest.
'We have stated to many interested
enquirers in Cass county that no herd
law was passsd during the recent ses
sion of the Legislature which affected
this county, except in the four western
precincts. Last week we published a law
which we found in the Omaha ' Repub
lican, purporting to be a general herd
law,' without excepting any locality.
The publication ef this law, accom
panied by the authority of the Secreta
ry of Stute that it actually was a law,
completely nonplussed us for the time
being, as we frankly stated last ' week;
Wo were perfectly confident that no
such law ever passed the House of
Representatives, although we had no
personal knowledge of what dispo
sition was made of the bill.' , Since our
last issue we find an explanation, or
or rather a statement, in. the Brown
ville Advertiser, of what disposition
was made of the bill in the House.
Mr. Church, editor of the Advertiser,
was a member of the House, and he says
through his paper that this act which
is being published as a law never passed
the House but was indefinitely post
poned by that body. This tallies ex
actly with our understanding of the
matter, and we doubt not Mr. Church
is correct in the statement. Should
the journals of the House show this to
be the fact, we think that herd law
will be effectually "squelched. " . We
are positive that the clerk of the House
never reported the passage of the bi
back to the Senate, as it was bis cus
torn and duty to report all bills orig
inating In the Senate which afterward
passed the House, and we doubt not
the journals of the House will show
that the bill was indefinitely postponed
as stated by Mr. Church.

taken a prominent part in securing the
passage of the R R. bonds and conse
quently must be well posted1 in refer-
eLce to all laws pertaining to the issu
iog bonds, you will confer a favor on
some of your subscribers by answering
directly the following questions and
giving this an insertion iu your nex
1st. By the vot, are the ecunty
Commissioners merely authorized or
are they compelled to issue the bonds
on completion of the road bed ?
2d. Cao the County Commissioners
ecjointhe payment of those ' bonds on
any pretex whatever, after they shall
have been issued ?
3d. Has the county any legal pow
er to compel the early completion of
the road or have they placed them
selves sit the mercy of the B. & M. R
R. by their vote.
4th. If the election call for the
county as published in your paper
bound the R R. Co. to complete the
road, why is the present' call for
Plattsmouth election worded se differ
rjly ? .V ;
5th The call for the' election was
first pablished twenty-three days be
fore the election; does this comply with
the requirements of the t law which
speHfios that the notice shall be pub
lished at least four weeks in some pa
per published within the county.
f. a ( L. F. Reed.
Answer: Whether the above ques
lions are asked with a desire to obtain
knowledge, or' whether 1 tbey are in
teoded to confound the Herald, we
leave, the reader to judge; but as we
have honestly, advocated issuing the
bonds, believing it to be to the best in
terests of the county, we acknowledge
the right of our correspondent to ques
tion ut, regardless of his motive for so
doing and we shall as candidly answer
these questions as we have a'l others
propounded to us. ' We differ from
our correspondent in . one thing, and
that is in his assumption that in "con
sequence' of our advocacy, of bonds
that we "must be well posted'' on all
questions of law relative to bonds.
We hav bad our optnton in regard
to the questions of Uw which enter in
to this, matter, tut we have only given
them as eur opinions, and not as au
thority. ' It would be just as consistent
for us to say that "in consequence of
Mr. Reed's opposition to issuing bonds
that he rus be we 1 posted in refer
ence to all laws-pertaining to : issuing
bonds,' as for him to make the as
sertieo he does. But to the answers:
1st. The law authorizing the issuing
which will be found in this issue of
the Herald says counties are author
ized to issue bjnds "in an amount to
be determined by the County Commis
sioners ' etc
Whether that is con-
,rued 10 compel them to issue the
aaiount authorised by .the ..people, 1
leave for Mr. Reed and others to judge
They are probably as competent judges
as we are.
2d. Whether or not the Couuty
Commissioner can enjoin payment is
a question we do not, care to discuss;
but we are quite confident that any tax
payer of tne connty -which will van
swer the same purpose could, enjoin
the payment of these bonds under cer
tain circumstance?; and on this point
we 'would cite Mr. Reed to the deci
sion of Judge Clinton published here
with which decision we believe Mr.
Reed, himself agreed should determine
his vole on the bond question, and
which was forwarded to Weeping Wa
ter the evening before the election.
3d. In answer to ibis questioo we
also refer Mr. Reed to the annexed
dicision of Judge Clinton, wherein he
unquestionably thinks we are not com
pelled to issue bonds for anything less
than a "railtoad, through the couuty
of Cass as will be seen by the manner
in which he has emphasized that sen
tenc. It may not be amiss to state in
this connec ion that Judge Clinton's
decision was given upon the suppo
sition that the election notice published
in the Herald is to be the only con
tract with the compaoy, as he had not
seen the law published in this issue.
4h. The county bonds were for the
purpose of having the road built in and
through the county, and the city bonds
are for the purpose of endeavoring to
secure the starting point of the road
the depots, machine shops, etc., within
the city of Plaiumouth. They are
for different objects, consequently must
be wordea differently. So far as the
'road bed'' part is concerned, we pre
sume ihe intention was to have no
wrangling or difference of opinion
on that point, and so the notice was
made to say "railroad" direct.
5th. We shall not give ourself any
uneasiness on ibis point, neither do we
think iur friend Reed should. It can
n t work any wrong or disadvantage to
ihe tax payers of the county, and we
think if the R. R. Co. is satisfied we
should not find fault Our opinion is(
however, that the requirements of the
law are fulfilled in this respect.
iv. k.i.w.o s e nave answered all of
Mr. Reed's questions, and whether or
not tbey are answered correctly or
satisfactorily we hope he will consider
that they are answered candiJIy.
Following 'is the decision of Judge
Gen. R. R. Livingston, and E. L,
Gentlem en:-? Your several letters
of this date drawing my attention to
the proposi'ion found in the Nebras
k a Heheld of the 21th inst. in rela
tion to the connty of Cass voting $200,
000 in bonds for R. R. purposes, nnd
asking my opinion of the meaning and
legal effect of said proposition, came
to hand this evening.
The meaning and intention of the
proposition upon which the voters, as
provided, are to vote, must be gathered
from the proposition, taking it as
whole, and would require toe parties
making and accepting it to carry it out
in (rood faith according to the in
tention. a3 indicated by its terms. -
If the County carry the vote in the
affirmative, then tba County agrees
that their agents shall issue the bonds
for the purpose of building a Railroad
through the County of Cass, and not
merely to build a road bed: and when
the R. R. Company built the road bed
ten miles westward from the Micsouri
river, the Company can then demand
foriy per cent of the 200,000 in bonds,
and so on, according to the proposition
to pay as the road brd is finished; and
if the agents of the coumy refuse
to issue the bond- at the time required
(the R. R. Company having complied
on their part) aid R. R. Company can
compel their issuance; but if the R. R
Compaoy do not comply on their part
witnin a reasonaoie time, taking in
to consideration the magnitude of the
work, then of course the R. R. Compa
ny cannot require the issuance of the
bonds, and if the bonds are isued un
der the proposition and accepted by the
R. R. Company, and the Company
then fails to complete the road in good
faith, then the R. R. Company would
be liable for damages, and the rule of
damages would be the fuce of the
bonds and interest; or, . if the bonds
should be held by the company, and
had not passed into the hands of inno
cent holders, then any tax payer of the
county could proceed and have the
payment enjoined. ..

Council Bluffs, March 25th, 1S69.
For the Hsbald.
The posUx of teacher is second
only to the pulpit, yet ir is thought
that any young girl or school-boy, who
bas enough of Geography, Arithmetic,
&c, to answer a few questions put by
the inspector, is capable of teaching a
school. Sad mistake. The education
may even be goad, and the . iadivtda.!
unfit for o high a position. The in
tellect is not all that is to be cultivated;
while it is important that the teacher
understand well the text bcok, it is
highly more important that he be
person who can exert a christian influ
ence. I know some teachers would
say "I do not teach morals,' but they
are mistaken. 'Never a teacher en
tered the school-room without teaching
morals. Pupils are observing. If a
teacher it awkward and untidy in his
personal appearance the pupil sees it.
or what is equally to be regretted, al
low. his school room to be a scene of
disorder and .dirt, they notice that.
And truly will they notice and be in
fluenced by the manner of the tencher
with reference to Christianity. If a
teacher is consistent, the very fact that
he is a Christian nid begins bis day's
labor with the prayer that God will
guide and direct him and his pupils in
all they do, commands a respect that
cannot be otherwise gained, and ihis
will do far more towards governing a
school than the casual observer would
realize. For even the vilest has res
pect for the true Christian.' You rec
ollect that before one of the contests
between (he British and American
armies' in the war of 1812 in sight of
the enemy before entering into the en
gagement our General kneeled,- and,
with a brief and fervent prayer com
mined himself and army into the bands
of the Lord, and implored his aid in
battling for the right. It was said that
that act disheartened the British more
than any thing else that rould have
Order and neatness are heaven's
first laws; indeed they are almcst in
separable. Observe the vegetable
world and see with what precision leaf
after leaf unfolds itself each according
to its several specie. The successful
businets raari Arranges his goods in
some certain order that he may know
where to find them when called for.
And shall we suppose order in a
school-room of fifty er a hundred pu-
pils of less importance ? The progress
of pupils is never advanced by noise
and confusion. I do not deem it nec
essary tnat tue teacner assume ty
rant a face or power, to quiet, and
keep quiet the school-room; but on the
contrary, ever be cheerful, courteous
and self possessed, yet require prompt
obeditnee and instill into their minds
that there is dignity and true worth in
good behavior and they will tleli'hi,
and take pride, in trying to gratify the
teacher's requests, and help him to
maintain the order and neatness
desired in and about the schooi-room
Demand perfect lessons but ehort. A
short, perfect lesion is worth more than
many long ones partially learned.,.
When they become weary and rest,
less, introduce a gymnastic exercise
or a lively song while all are standing.
Then, rented, again resume the studies
with quiet. Study to interest your pu
pits and give them general information
ever remembering fn the language of
Boecber, God has placed themj here
and says to the teacher, as well' as pa
rent with reference to each, "Keep it
