There exists a false delicacy and pride
amounting almost to prudery, in regard to con

Hundreds of lives are lost every year by dis
eases which have been neglected or improperly
treated. In the case of young men there seems
no apology, and yet in many cases they attempt
to cure themselves with vile nostrums, and in
consequence shorten their lives, and pass the
miserable remnant of existence with their blood
filled with the poison of a stifled, but not cured
disease, which must inevitably be transmitted
to the third and fourth generations.
With young women there seems some excuse,
and yet their utmost eecresy will not conccul the
fuels. Any intelligent physician who wulks
these streets can recognize among the ladies, by
certain infallibio tokens known to him, and of
w hich the suflcrcrs are often totally ignorant,
tho ravages of that wide spread scourge, tho
w hites. Any intelligent physician can point our
in his daily walks scores of this and kindred
complaints, in both sexes, the existence of which
they cannot ignore. The educated sufferer
knows the physician can detect this. Tho phy
sician knows that the sufferer knows it. and yet.
in nine cases out of ten, the aHlicted individual
fails to consult thm man wKom he knor.'d Is cog

cure. Know ing that health can be restored, and
who can restore it, they deliberately allow them
selves to become mere wrecks of humanity, and
to transmit diseased constitutions to their
To Young: Men.
In every community tbero are vast numbers
of young men alHietod with -cminal weakness,
nocturnal emissions, lassitude, debility, und the
other attendant symptoms of secret disorder,
undermining the constitution, and totally de
stroying its victim, menially Knd physically,
sooner r later. The disease is progressive, and,
if not checked, dizxiness, los of memory, un
controllable procrastination in business, pains
in the back, side and knees, yellowish drool
from tho mouth during sleep, and failure of all
physical energy soon follows. From this stage
is a series of short steps to an early grave, or the
confinement of u lunatic it.-ylum.
Many of these young men have responded to
advertisements of so-called Benevolent "Asso
ciations," or unscrupulous quacks in distant
cities, and after having been swindled of their
money by one and soother, have abandoned
hope and pronounced themselves incurable.

LOCO rOCOS. I1IRXBITRXER.S AXD
EverytKxIy is familiar with the above
names as appli(xl to political factions in
the State of New York ; but the origin
of the names is not so generally known.
The factions were all offsets from the
Democratic party but originated on dif
ferent eoca.sions. The term Loco-foco
had its origin as follows. The Dem
ocratic party in the city of New York,
some forty years ago, was divided in two
factions. The one embracing the Tam
many leaders and their adherents was in
favor of the system of banking then in
operation in that State, together with a
partiality for some other State, and also
city measures as well as national that
were repulsive to the rank and file of the
party. The latter attended a meeting in
force in Tammany Hall, and succeeded
n organizing the nioeting by the election
of officers of their own stamp. The old
party, determined not to be out-gener
aled, turned off the gas, or put out the
lights and left the meeting in darkness.
This' was before the introduction of the
present style of matches for kindling fire,
Then a kind of match was in use called
the loco-foco match, but on account of
its inconvenience it was not as commonly
carried in the pocket as are those of the
present day. Yet some of the party left
in darness by the stratagem of the Tam
many Chief, happen to have some of the
matches on hand, and before the leaders
and their friends had reached the street
the hall was illuminated again, and the
meeting re-opened with cheers that shook
the old wigwam to its foundation. The
old leaders attempted to weaken the in
fluence of the new party by giving them
a paltry nick-name, and they accordingly
styled them the Loco-Foco party a name
suggested by the manner in which the
hall was lit up. The leaders of the new
faction again flanked the Tammany Chief,
by largely accepting the name, and
proudly parading it on their banners, and
through their press. The name was af
terwards applied, by the old whigs, to
the entire Democratic party. It was
done by some as a slang name, by others
because the Radical principles of that
New York faction gave a tinge to subse
quent Democratic national politics.
Barnburners and Hunkers. These fac
tions had their origin, if we are not mis
taken, a few years after the birth of the
loco-focos. The name of barn-burner
was occasioned in the following manner.
There was in the Democracy of the State
of New York a considerable faction
dissatisfied with their party leaders.
Some believed them corrupt, and others
envied them the success they had so
curing position in the party ; and accor
dingly there was a vigorous onslaught on
the leaders. Hoffman, I think, from
Herkimer county, was a chief among the
assailants, and in a celebrated speech, he
narrated a speech of an old Dutchman
whose barn was infested with rats. The
story ran somewhat in this style, "Mine
got, exclaimed the dutchman, wat shall I
do ! der rats eats mine corn and mine
wheat aud mine oats, and I gets nothing. '
nis neighbors suggested moving the
barn as a remedy, and the Dutchman re
plied that he had tried it and the rats
moved at the same time and to the same
place. Other remedies were suggested,
but none met the approval of the old
man. After a few minutes, apparently
in deep thought, the Dutchman rubbing
his hands in glee exclaimed, "I beats
him ; I burns the tarn barn." And the
barn was accordingly burned. The Dem
ocratic party, said Hoffman, is like the
old man's barn ; and I, though a Dem
ocrat from my youth, would willingly see
the party organization consumed, if the
political rats would perish in the con
flagration. This sentiment of Hoffman
secured to his faction the name of "Barn
burners." The other faction was imme
diately, as an off-set, christained tho
Hunkers. This name had its origin from
as apparently trivial cause as the others.
The game of "Hide and Seek" as known
among our children is called among the
young, in the old Dutch districts of New
York by the name of "Ilunkover."
The boy who blinds, and afterwards seeks
the other is called the. "Hunker," and
the goal is called the Hunk. To make
the propriety of the name, as applied in
politics, more apparent, we will imagine
the game among the boys as in full blast
That little chap with his eyes wide
open, and every muscle awake to action
and ready for a race is the "Hunker."
The others are hidden behind boxes,
barrels or anything that will afford con
cealment The "Hunker" cautiously
peeps in the dark places, and the instant
he discovers a boy he bounds off for the
'Hunk" with the speed of a race horse.
If he gets there before his competitor he
is "all Hunk ; but if he is beaten he is
obliged to "blind" again. But he is
seldom beaten, for he is constantly on
the watch, he is on his feet, and ready
for a spring, and withal a little nearer the
Hunk than his opponent, while on the
other hand the "hider" for concealment
as obliged to middle up in a little bundle
behind the barrel, or lay himself out flat
behind a clump of weeds, and conse
quently his race is half lost before he can
get his machinerey in running order.
Such is the working of the boys game,
how for "Hunkover" in politics. j
tAt the time to which these occurrcn
s refer, office seeking in New York,
mong what was afterwards termed, by
their opponents, the "Albany Regen
cy," was a science. They had their
grand movers at the State capital, and
their deputy grand movers in every
jpounty and diftrict in the State and their
(organization irnd discipline were com
plete. They wire-pulled the primary
meetings, and the result of the primary
meetings determined the character of
the county and State gatherings. And
as they cunningly manipulated the nom
inations from the people up to the high
est office for the benefit of their own
clique, so they secured for the same class
every appointment in the State by wire
pulling every appointing power.
The party was devided in two distinct
classes, the one class could never get in
office, and the other class could'nt be got
out The Regency understood office
seeking as an education, as a profession,
as a military drill, and were always wide
awake for the best chances. Lake the
"Hunker" in the boys game they always
moved with caution, and always kept the
inside track, and always got the start in
the race for office, and consequently as
the Imys would say came in 'all Hunk'.
It was against such a combination that
Hoffman waged his war, and they were
the political rats that he was anxious to
exterminate, even by burning the Dem
It is a long time since these occurences
and they are only narrated from memory,
and in some minor points as to date they
may be inaccurate but the facts as to ori
gin of the names are correct
The name Locofoco will eventually be
lost, for there is nothing in the name
alone to perpetuate its distance; but the
name of 'Hunker' will live as long as
there is an office seeker in any party to
merit the epithet, and from present in
dications the breed is not running out
As regards the name 'Barnburner,'
that will occasionally be revived and
again lost; for it is not often that a man
with Hoffmans position and influence is
found to wage an exterminating warfare
against the organization of his own par
ty or in other words, is vrilling to burn
the barn to kill the rats; and as the
name will be revived only at such times
it will have a spasmotic existence.
To sum up, "Locofoco" will eventually
die out, "Barnburner" will come and go
as erratic an! uncertain in appearance
and departure as a comet. But 'Hun
kers" will be always with us undiminih
ed in numbers and eternal in existence.
WHERE ARE TIIET.
We propounded the above question
some weeks since, stating at the time
that enactments of the Legislature which
were duly signed by the Governor did'nt
appear among the printed laws. We
refer as an especial insta nce, to the case
of an enactment entitled "An Act to de
fin tb right of occupying Claimant,"
Since propounding the question, we have
seen Secretary Kennard, who assures us
that this Act never came into his ' pos
session. Now, we know the bill passed
both houses, and was reported approv
ed and signed by the Governor, which
the journals will show unless there has
been as great rascality with them as with
some other things. If this bill never
came into the hands of the Secretaiy of
Stite, then where is it? Where did it
go to; or is it still in the hands of the
Governor. It may hurt somewhere to
have these enquiries made, but we pro
pose to have them answered by somebody
or else make it very unpleasant for who
ever tampered with these things. This
is not the only case of either neglect or
rascality on the part of somebody, and it
is but j ustice to the innocent that the
guilty should be brought to light " We
believe that nine tenths, at least, of the
members of the Legislature will agree
with us that this matter should be hunt
ed up, especially as an effort is being
made to lay the entire blame upon the
memlers themselves. We therefore call
upon any member of the Legislature to
give to the public any information he may
be posessed of that will throw light upon
the subject, no matter who it may hit
We do not pretend to deny that Ihe Sen
ate and House may be at fault in some
things, neither will we claim that our
own action was faultless in all respect;
but we do claim for ourselves an honest
intent, and are willing to hear whatever
of censure or credit attaches to our action
and propose that others shall do the
same. Who can give us light in regard
to the whereabouts of the law refered to
above. Will some one answer, or will
we be driven to the expedient of askintr
direct questions. Where was it last

the United States, or President "F. A.
White, Esq., of the Midland," for it
was none of these, but the steamer
"President," recently purchased by the
B. & 31. R. R. Co. in Nebraska, to
transact their business at this place.
She is a powerful double engine boat,
drawing three feet of water, and calculat
ed to tow two barges loaded with cars.
She brought with her one barge large
enough to to carry three box cars or two
passenger cars. She came up against
the current -of the Missouri with this
barge in tow as rapidly as any boat that
runs the river. She will be set to work
in a few days crossing iron, ties, locomo
tives, construction cars, etc., for the road
from Plattsmouth to Ft Kearney and
the Pacific ocean.

Work on the B. & M. R. R.,runnins
west from Plattsmouth is progressing
rapidly. About six hundred men are at
work on different points along the line.
A large number of ties are already on
the ground and the iron for the road will
commence arriving during the latter part
of this week. The people of Platts
mouth are rejoicing over the prospects
of an early connection with Lincoln.

RAKE CHANCE. )
S. Duke, Esq., has surveyed an addi
tion to the city, and offers inducements
to purchasers that cannot fail to please.
He offers a certain number of lots gratis
or what is the same as gratis, for the
sura often dollars each, and then pro
poses to dispose of a large portion of the
balance at very moderate figures. This
addition embraces some of as fine loca
tions as the town affords, which will be
in the heart of the city in a fow years.
THE TRl'JfK ROAD.
We see an item going the rounds of
the papers to the effect that the contract
for constructing the above named road
as far as Brownville has been already let
We only hope this may be true, but
have serious doubts. We do not believe
the report has any better foundation than
the one in relation to the five: foot vein
of Cannel coal at this place, nor hardly as
good, for there has been a man digging a
hole in the ground here.
lne I'lattsmouth Uoul Elmers made a
strike this morning, in consequence
of the failure of the proprietors to fur
nish the necessary finances. The force
consisted of three men, and we believe
they have worked two or three days each
Whether or not there is any coal here,
we are unable so say, but presume the
supply is very limited, and whether the
men who have been working would find
coal in paying quantities is a question
whicli they alone can answer, but we
are induced to believe the whole thing
was gotten up for a sell, for the purpose
of making money out of eastern men who
might be drawn into the Tndle inno
cently. We hope tho prospecting will
be done and that coal in paying quantities
may be found. But the correspondent
of tho Omaha Herald who wrote that it
had already been found in paying quan
tities, and that he had seen it, evidently
told a whopper, probably for pay.

We have the estimates of ten or twelve
different farmers in this county on the
cost of raising wheat Comparing them
together, we pet the tallowing, which is
a little under the average:
10 bu. per acre cost per bu. 84 eta
15 " " 61J cts
20 " " 50 cts
25 " " 431 cts
30 " " 38 cts
It is only where strict economy is prac
ticed that the cost per bushel can be kept
as low as the above.
In estimatinj; the cost of plowing and
sowing our informants varied from $1 90
to $3 per acre. Cost of seed varies from
$125 to $3 50. The cost of shocking
and stacking we have calculated a little
higher when it y ielded 20 bushels per
acre than when it yielded ten. Thrash
ing wo count 6 cents per bushel. We
made no allowance for hauling to market
nor for rent of ground. Pawnee Tribune
A most shameful and outrageous affair
took place on board the steamer Lady
Grace on Saturday night last, while she
wa9 returning from the prize fight below
Plattsmouth. The captain, durine the
up trip, requested the man who char
tered the boat to advance him part pay
ment. The fellow said he had no money.
Some of the crowd took the matter in
hand and concluded they had been groes
ly insulted. The notorious Grasshopper
bam led the crowd and at once raised a
muss. They attacked the Captain and
on tho scene presented, for naif an hour,
was worse than pandemonium itself,
The crowd, led by two women the only
females on board began jiulJing down
the state-room .doors, kicking in the
pannels, smashing .windows, tearing up
beds and bedding, jerking off cabin or
naments, jammg holes in the root, de
molishing furniture, and in fact destroy
ing everything they could lay their hands
on. Drunken oaths, fierce yells, hooting,
howling, drinking, obscenity and blas
phemy only formed an accompaniament
to the demoniac scene. Everything
Iortable was pitched into the river. . Af
ter damaging everything within reach,
the furious crowd again searched out the
Captain, and this second time tore his
clothing nearly off, knocked him down,
stamped and kicked him until lite was
