JR. It begins to look like business to
ee this class of men in ttie city. We
have done little of the wind work usu
al at the conra-errcement of railroads at
a western town, because we have no de
sire to create any excitement but desire
to see all branches of basiness bsve a
healthy and permanent growth, and to
ee property held at a value regulated
by its actual worth for business pur
poses. We shall continue to give Jacts
relative to the growth and business fa
cilities of the city, and leave the blow
ing part to localities more in need of it
than Plattsmouth. We have contended
for the last four years that Plattsmouth
had a future before ber that might well
be the envy of any point west of the

We saw a gentleman from Nebraska
City a few days since who gave us re
newed assurance that "F. A. White, Esq.,
of the Midland .Pacific," had actually
got borne, and that "he had the "iron and
rolling stock" for tbo first 615 miles of
his road, not only "contracted" but they
were now sufficiently contracted to carry
in his vest pocket, where they actually
reposed along side the bonds of Otoe
We visited Hesser'a Pic Nic Gardens a
few days since, and were completely sur
prised to see the large quantity of things
he has. He has an abundance of all
kiads of vegetables, ,and is selling them
rapidly. He has 25,000 cabbage plants
set, and in'ends patting oat about 25,
uuu more. His ureen House is a rare
sight for the west. He has almost every
variety of flowering plan known, and
has them in abundance He has seventy
fixe different varieties of Verbena. We
venture to say he Las the most complete
assortment of choice flowering plants
west of the Mississippi.
We are sorry our Nebraska City
neighbors think we intended any barm
to their city by our statement tast week
that "White had arrived at home."
Far from it; we have many warm friends
in Nebraska City, and have nothing but
the kindest feelings for the prosperity of
the place, and we firmly believe it will
yet be a place of no mean importance.
It may not be able to keep pace with

fates do not so decree it, and not be
causa she has not an energetic and de
serving set of inhabitants.
The Press thinks we are indulging in
"flings at Nebraska City." That paper
is evidently very much mistaken. Such
a thought never entered our mind as to
fling anything at Nebraska City. We
may have indulged in a little pardon
able myrth at the oft repeated assertion
that "F. A. White, E q., of the Midland
Pacific Road1' had just got heme, an 3
that he had succeeded in negotiating for
a considerable amount of iron and roll
ing stock, etc. all of which the Press
men most remember distinctly, and for
which relaxation of our facial muscles
we ask pardon if it is construed iDto
"flings" at Nebraska City. We have no
doubt the said White has Secured all the
iron necessary we WDuld Dt dare to
doubt it but then he might have se
cured brass rails much cheaper and
nearer home, by applying at Morton's

Nothing is better proof of the excel
lence of an article thun the frequency of
imitations of it. Thee counterfeits are
the universal tribute which wortblessness
pays to merit. The sterling worth and
popularity of the Charter Oak Stoves
are attested by this etandard. These
stoves are constantly imitated because
they are known to be the best in use.
We advise the public to beware of these

Judge Crounse seems to bu rapidly
rising in the estimation of the people
of the North Platte country. He is
spoken of as the strong man for Sen
ator in place of Gen. Thayer whose
lime expires two years hence.
The above we copy from the Ne
braska City Chronicle, and can inform
our neighbor that Judge Crounse al
ready stands high in the estimation of
the people of this region. Judg
Crounse, at one time during the Sena
torial contest of last winter, appeared
as a formidable candidate, and altho'
his Dame was not brought prominently
before the legislature, sufficient was
.hown to demonstrate that be has mao
friends, not only in this part of the
State, but throughout its length. The
election of Judge Crounse a successor
of Gen. Thayer would be a just tribute
to real merit and a credit to the state
Kailroadical. As near as we
can learn, the grading' for the B. & M
extension in this county is nearly done,
and will probably be completed before
the 4th of July. But 6 or 7 miles of
gap yet remain, in the eastern part of
county. Contractor Fitzgerald, who
has fifteen miles on this end of the
line, calct lated to finish up bis job this
week, but will probably be delayed
three or four days, on account of the
late heavy rains. The piles for the In
dian Creek bridge are abtut all driven
and a driver is at work on the Botana.
If Montgamery and Adams counties
have done as well as Mills we have a
"sure thing" cn Railioad connection
by September. Opinion
The Railroad is finished to Crojn
well, and regular trains will be run
ning to that point in a few days. Most
of the heavy grading is already com
pleted through Adams county, and we
may expect the work to go on at Rail
road speed until it is completed to this
place. Red Oak Express.
The New York Tribune of the 20th
has the following concerning the Cuban
We have general confirmation of
the report that the Spaniards have been
whipped in a battle. It was one of a
recent series of four engagements be
twee.n Nuevitas and Puerto Principe,
in which the troops of Spain have been
only twice the gainers, according to
the coolest judgment of observers not
eutirely hostile to their cause. Our
own advices respecting the 'niter de
feat of the Spaniards at Sabana Nueva
convey a rumor that one of their com.
manders. Gen Lestn. has returned to
Havana to report failure. The recu
lar press telegram treat? the story of
victory at Las Jlinas as an exajfra-
tion; but we are elmoM certain tnai
the Cubans have been fighting in am
est, and that in fcur encounters can
boast of having wrought their adversa
nes s-erious mischiet. Accep'in? the
uniform report of the Cuban eide Spain
has lost seriously in wagons, euns nnd
munitions, beside a considerable body
of meu in her last attempt on Que
si da- Proof is that her wounded
brought to Havana confess defeat, and
that the mu'e patriots of the city re
joice in their hearts.
We have no immoderate anxiety to
learn the exact proportions of the late
contests. It seems to be freely granted
that the Cubans have made themselves
felt even at such a distance from the
scene of their s'rusgle as Havana.
For the first time in months the native
chief Quesada has broken out of the
state of abeyance which Gen. Cespedes
Considered it best to insist upon as a
military policy. These assurances ap
pear to us significant enough, inde
pendently of details of battle. Per
haps the promised time has come when
the Cubans, reinforced by pestilence
were to face their foe in dread earnest.
and drive hun home. Cotemporary
with the successes described, we re
ceive a contradiction of the report that
the Cubans lately held a convention in
favor of ennexalion ; but confess our
selves Ptill in the dark.
