ItUCIiKYES MOVIXii WENT.
The Cleveland (OlTio) journals com
plain of the general disposition existing
among the farmers of Northern Ohio to
move west. Families are leaving daily,
and more preparing to move. The ina
bility to dispose of their property retains
a great number, while others have the
Western fever so badly that they pull up
stakes and come, leaving their farms in
the hands of real estate agents for dispo
sal. The poor crops harvested the last
two j-ears seem to have disheartened the
farmers, and the accounts of the aston
ishing yield of fruit and grain in this
and neighboring States so work upon
their feelings that they are willing to
make any saciific in order to secure a
share of the good fortune that awaits
them here. Nor is this movement con
fined to the farming population alone.
Trade has become dull and unprofitable,
the downward tendency of values eating
up all the margin, and a number of deal
ers are drawing out with a view to find
ing a better field for enterprise in the
growing town3 of the West The pre
vailing dullness also tells heavily upon
the industrial class. Wages are low,
employment uncertain, and a mechanic
has hard work in supportinghis family
the year through. This unpromising
state of things leads a large number to
turn their thoughts westward.
We have in Plattsmouth a full com
plement of loafers aud men who expect
to make their living by their wit?, but
we need a hundred more mechanics and
laborers. There is employment enough
for all who desire to work, but a poor
chance fcr those who cxpoct to Eiake
xnonev through trickcrv.

When a person come3 to a .new place
with the intention of "citing lots" with
that eoiiiuiunity, we are, to say the least,
curious to know what brought him here.
A pasfenger on the down trip of the
stage to Nebraska City one day last week
accidentally was thrown in company with
Judge Graves, of Herkimer, N. Y., and
that firi'ojw-uess cropped out ; so much
so that be came directly to the point and
asked hiiu : "What brought you to Lin
coln, anyway?" The Judge then went
on to say that he was sitting quietly in
his office one morning, when a friend
brought in a circular feigned by the Gov
ernor, Secretary and Auditor, and sug
gested that "that was a pretty good
place to go to;" that he took it and pe
rused it carefully and decided before
noon of that day to go to Nebras
ka ; that he so stated his determi
nation to his wife, and invited her to
accompany him, but the declined
coining, but gave her free consent for
him to come. During the day he told
some of his friends that he was "going
to Nebraska." "What," said they, "you
going way out there ? Why, don't you
know the Indians are killing off all the
white people there , you goii;g to Ne
braska?" And . ro they went on. All
sorts of nonsense is afloat in Eastern
journals regarding the West. For in-
Graves came ; heiuvested largely in real
estate here, and has gone home with the
intention of returning again in the spring.

A Trry Slnpulnr Story from Hie State
From the Lewi'ton t Maine) Journal. Slept. Z'.
A man named Downs, who was in the
army, and for all we know, a respectable
man, had for years lived in Auburn. A
shoemaker by trade, he has been known
t 1 his friends to possess a curious power
of putting other people info unconscious
states, in which he could do anything
with them he pleaded. On Thursday he
came into the inner solo manufactory of
Mr. Charles Woodward in Auburn, and
being an old f iend, threw his arm casu
ally around Woodward's neck, thinking
nothing of the act, and soon niter left
the shop. Woodward says that he rc
mc!ii!K'ts nothing occurred until Sntur
day no.-ui. A!'tr Downs left the hop it,
was noticed that Woodward behaved
strangely danced. san, &c. Thursday
night he di l not come home, but about
2:30 on Friday morning put iu an ap
pearance and went to bed. He boarded

that it was imiossible to cure the ease

was found he had cone to (JardineY. It
was then determined, as dernier re
rejtorf, to carry Blake thither. Accor
dingly, Suneay forenoon he was secured
in a carriage and taken to Gardiner.
They found Down's at a hotel there,
and brought liake to the rooms where
h wkA "iX)wii3 nut his hands orr hinr,
and suddenly Blake's muscles relaxed ;
he was restored to consciousness. Blake
says the last he remembered he was
nibbing Woodard in his own house.
"Where am I?" "How did I come
here?" these and similar questions
gave expression to the Kip Van Winkle
wonderment that naturally possessed
him on coining to his senses. The storj'
was soon told, but Blake was forced
to see that the
hat the explanation only made it
re blind ; indeed that the cxpla-

left Auburn he had had a notion that
something there was not right, but he
could not teli exactly what the trouble

and restless, and had a preseniimcnt
that he was needed there. After he
took on himself the affection of Blake
he could for a time hardly contain him

as above given. V c have them from
the lips of Woodward and Blake, and
those who took cave of t'leni. Mr.
Blake is well known as one of the most

Biakc and Woodward are now confined
to their rooms, where we saw them to
day. They say they feel as though they
had been "pounded" every muscle in
their bodies being swollen and soie.
They are thoroughly pro.-trated. "What
is it?" is the question. To answer it by
saiing "mesmerism." is only to jump
out of the frying pan into the fire. It is
certainly a wondrous proof of the effect
of one mind on another, of will on will,
of animal iagnetism a physical wonder

nineteenth century. In Cotton Mather's

Downs that he lives in the noonday cen
