The Omaha Jirjntllican copies our
remarks ujoa the commencement of
track laying nt this place, and a l is :
"Ve unitite our congiatulations with
those of the gixnl people of Piattsmouth
nd South Phtto generally, on the hap
pening of thid important event. Kvery
raiiroid laid tlov.-Q in Nebraska add.-;
millions to the abrogate wealth cf the
State, and the more we t:ct of them the
letter we will be suited no matter
whether north or Fouth of the l'iatte
river, so that they nre in Nebra. k:."
We hie the tone of the above. It
evince. a lilnjialit' of spirit beyond wl at
is heard froij many quarters, airl be
yond vhat is often heard from Omaha.
"Let us Lava peace," and prosperity in

is the only newspaper in the State that
Ter denominated ths German popula
tion of the Suti as the "damned dutch."
Does Morton remember the time the
Newt was waited upon by. a committee
of Germans Cid rsked to apologize for
what it had said about them as a people,
and do not the old files of the News show
thai ib diil apologize, very meekly, for
its action ? We rather think Thomas
Morton has not forgotton that little cpi
wde in the history of the "oldest news
paper in .Ncbiaska." You should keep
tolerably quiet, Sterling, about what rad
ical may have said about "the dutch,"
as you terra them. Memory is some
times a dangerous thing to new fangled
ideas. We have lived in Nebraska a
long time. .
On UmIL H. im N-fer-la T-r-
npiketl down last Friday morning, and the
first railroad in Nebraska, south of the
PhHs river, was started westward.
While this event might well be consider
ed one of the most important in the his
tory cf Plattsmouth, yet there were not,
pTtleaWy, - a half dozen cilLxs .. if
city, aside from the men engaged in the
work, that knew of the commencement
of the track laying. A frw months :"co
po important an event would have called
forth the entire jiopuiace io v.-itn-j.-s it ;
but now they loo'i upon the li. S: 31. 1.
IL in Nebraska as one of the institutions
of the place, and the matter of the
time of commencing any particular
portiou of the work is not looked ujoii
as of any special importance by the peo
ple. It is a matter of special import
ance however; for the 'commencement
of track laying is the commencement of
a new era in the business of the town ;
and in that light it is of vital import.
The work has been commenced and the
new era inaugurated. Let tho people
therefore rejoice quietly, if their joy
does not find vent in demonstrations of a
public character.
Should the great Salt Springs of Lan
caster county prove as extensive as is
generally believed they will or, rather,
if there is a great source found to this
flow of brine, where it can be obtained
in its purity at all seasons of the year,
without being effected by surface water
then will they prove to be the great
pource of wealth to Nebraska next after
her agricultural interests. The springs
are on the immediate line of the IJ. &
M. road west from Plattsmouth, which
will be completed to them as soon a3
men and money can accomplish the
work, thus giving an outlet to thi3 pro
duct. Parties arc now engaged in bor
ing for brine, and some idea of what
they are doing maj' be obtained from the
following which we copy from last week's
Statesman :
Yesterday wc visited the new salt
works of Dr. J. M. Kvan- & Co. A
building with a derrick, looking like a
small church with the frame of a great
steeple, has been erected on the bank of
Oak Creek about a mile and a half
northwest Irom Market Space, in Lin
coln. In the building is a powerful
steam engine, drums, walkinir beams and
other machinery, all erected at a cost of
near $6,000. The works are under the
superintendence of F. Springier, Ksq.,
an experienced salt maker from Saginaw,
Mich., assisted by two men who have
been in the deep well-sinking business
for many years; and consequently know
what they are about.
On Monday last they commence a
four and a half inch bore, and have made
satisfactory progress since. The drill has
passed through :
Soil and loam 1 4 feet.
Sand and Gravel 20 feet
Red marl 22 feet.
Blue Shales 14 feet.
Very soft white cand-stone 27 ft-ct.
Total to Friday evening 07 feet.
The stratum of sand in which they are
now working is so soft that tubing will
be inserted and continued until a harder
material is reached.

avocation3 when driven to the wall, by

which are categoried iu our criminal
code Old and thoughtful citizens,
head of families, and the better class of
our citizens generally, looked upon This

long, the authorities will soon
come to the rescue of our youth
from the tin and idleness which
it engenderes." But our authorities, like
all great bodies, move slowly. At last
the patience of the solid men of the com
munity was exhausted. "We shall have
no more of this,". they said, and a re
monstrance was talked of to be niimer
ously signed by respectable citizens. A
rumor to such effect was the first notice
of a just enlightened public opinion con
cerning them that caused the kenoists to
tremble in their boots. The proper offi

A writer in a California paper hoos
at the idea that Indians cannot be civil
ized and tanicil down. He civi-s an
instance the city of f i.o F'ine. in that
State, where seven liort years :i;ro, ho
stool truard .all ni.jht to keep the "red
devils ' from murdering and '"raisin?
thc hair" of the inmates of the little
camp. Now on returning to the same
place he finds these supposed to lo i.--reclaimable
creatures, luairy of them
working peaceably on farms like- white
men, and many others not only Avearir.s
paper collars and swearinpr but ''buek
inn the ti.i-er'' at faro, precisely like the
higher order of christians by whom they
are surrounded. The instance given is
certainly a clincher to the civilization
i-ide of the argument.
