THURSDAY, NOV. 11, 1809.
Arrived in the City lat evening, from
Lincoln, and loft for Omaha this after
noon. He has been making a trip through
the southern part of the State, looking
up the wants of his constituents. Gen.
Thayer has proven an efficient man for
Nebraska in Washington. lie has bctn
always ready to labor for the benefit of
the people, and will Ion.? be reuieiubercd
by them lor his efforts in the develope
luent of our State.
The Omaha Herald 'learns that it is
contemplated by the Mason s of this State
to erect a magnificent Masonic Temple
in Omaha next year, and adds :
"It is designed that the Temple .shall
cost not less "than !? 1 .Vj. I 0. It will
stand four stories on its "pin.' and the
rough plan projects that it shall be 8 by
132 feet, with eight stores in t'ae first
story, and a grand lecture hall that shall
peat three thousand persons above.
'This Li a great project for Omaha.
It ought to be instantly begun. The
3Iasons of this State would reflect honor
upon their Order, and credit upon this
State and city, by erecting such a monu
ment to their work and enterprise.
Whenever it shall le fairly started we
bcseak for it the hearty and liberal co
operation in subscriptions to stock iu it
or every citizen."

The B. & M. 11. 11. Co. have pun bas
ed grounds a little north of the C. 1. &
St. Joe IK'pot, in Council IJIuffs, for a
depot. So it seems the "Main Trunk,"
or "i'latts'mouth Branch." is to have
two points of termini. A railroad can
be too big for a small town or as Ar
teuius says, it is possible to have too
much of even as good a thing as hash.
Ilaa'F. A. White, E., of the Mid
land Pacific," got along with that iron
jet? Tic was to have arrived with it
last April, but we have heard nothiug
from him tinee midsummer. Our friend
of the Chronicle may think the B. & M.
Company is ,:hash," but they are ex
pending over $100,000 in cash in our
State every month, and have shown by
their worfes that thc3' arc no jxiprr outfit,
dependent upon the caprice of half a
dozen newspapers for an existence.
Whether this is the '"main track" or
"Plaifsniouth Branch" is of very little
conscrjucnee. The Company are build
ing their road here, th-y are building
machine shops, round, debts',
and all the accompaniments of a first
class road here. They have an organi
zation here, which represents and con
trols seven and a Jvilf millions of money,
and is composed of some of the most
successful liailroad men. in the world
Such names as Brooks, Thayer, Bartlett,
Woodman, Perkins, Forbes and Burn
bam are not likely to cause one who has
a just appreciation of men and works to
compare them to "hash.' We fully- un
derstand that Platkmiouth is not the only
point al which the B. fc M. Co. propose
to do business, but we also understand
that this is the main line of their great
through route be! ween the two oceans;
and we also understand, as does the
Chronicle, that they expect both Coun
cil Bluffs aud Nebraska City to be tribu
tary to this great through line; and in
order to make them so thoy wi1! establish
depots at these, as well as many other
TKiiits, and will, in all probability, run
cars from both points, via the Council
Bluffs and St. Joe Bond, to a connection
with their main line from this city. If.
thisfact is just reason for the Chronicle's
comparison, then we admit that the com
parison is just. If the Chronicle man
will take the trouble to examine the rec
ords he wiil find how much ' hash"
there is about this company; and he will
also find just where the terminus of thj
road is.
Tbe Brvidnr I -on ft Branch Letter
to JiKle Dent.
The followiug is the letter of the Presi
dent addressed to Judge Pent last sum
mer, wlule the latter was moving to se
cure the Conservative nomination for
Governor of Mississippi:
"L Branch. Aug. 1.
"Pear Ji:i.;f. : 1 am so 'thoroughly
satisfied in my own mind that the suc
cess of the so-called Conservative Bo
publicac party in Mississippi would re
sult in the defeat of what 1 believe to be
for the best interest of State and country,
that I have determined to say so to you
in writing. Of course I know or be
lieve that your intentions are good in ac
cepting the nomination from the Con
servative party. I would regret to see
you run for an office and be defeated by
my act, but as matters now look 1 must
throw the weight of my influence in fa
vor of the party opposed to you. I earn
estly hope that lefore the election there
will be such concessions on either side in
Mississippi as to unite all true supporters
of reconstruct iou in the State iu support
of one ticket"
Then follows a paragraph of a private
nature, aud the letter then concludes as
follows .
"I write this to you solely that vou i
may not ie umier any wrong impression i
ns to finat j. re:rara, or uiav Iiereatter re
gard, as a public dutv. Personal!;-, 1
wish you well, and would do all in my
Kwcr, proper to le done, to secure your
success : but, in public matters, iiersonal
feelings will uot influence me. With the
kindest regards, yours trulv,
"U. S. Grant."
Judge Pent writes to his friends that
iu several of his speeches he has quoted
the last paragraph of this letter, to show
the personal friendship between himself
ard the President, but that he has not
represented the President as desiring his
election ia the manner reported.

A correspondent of the Omaha JTcralJ
snuffs the battle afar off, and makes a
statement which would have been hooted
at in Omaha one year ago. We remein
ler distinctly that little more than a year
ago the Omaha papers as.?rtcd defiantly
that the U. 1'. B. It. was the only rail
road that would leave the Missouri river
in Nebraska for the west during this ecu
tury. Now listen to the aforesaid cor
respondent :
The lest settled i-nrtion of the State
of Nebraska is in the southeast, and ex
tends westward farther and fuither as you
go southwest from Omaha.
St. Louis is pressing the Trunk railroad
into the southeast corner of w State to
get a grab of their business. St. Jo-eph
is crowding surveys, etc., to complete the
eastern portion of the Nemaha Valley
railroad from the Missouri river toward
Lincoln, to draw the same trade. Brown
ville has a hundred thousand dollars al
ready voted to any body who will push a
rai'road up the "Little Nemnha" to get
here mow. Nebra.-ka City has a road
graded to Lincoln, and is about to start a
road from the M idland I'acific railroad to
cut off the trade from roads running
southeast to the Missouri.
The B. & M. 11. B. are pushing their
line from I'laU.-inouth, up that river and
Salt Creek to Lincoln, and m xt year in
lend to tap the I'nion Pacific at Fort
Kearney. Lvery one of these roads are
being built by foreign capital, except
some bonds which the c; unifies have
voted to aid them, and the foreign capi
talists who are doing this are to wcim
lands enough from the State to pay for
the roads "and have the roads left for
profit. The two thousand acres per mile
granted by the State will more than pay
for building the roads. All of these
roads have one objective jMiint, which is
Thin .s an fix to connect with the Jlur
linftOit aud Miitsouri Hirer Hoil J'oml,
running west from Lincoln to Fort Kear
ney, and so connect with the I'nion Pacific-
railroad. All of these railroads will
le built, and when built will carry with
them a dense popuiatiou in one of the
most fertile countries iu the world, and
Omaha will have no connection with it,
1 and will not draw one dollar's worth of
i trade; and when the State lands are
used up to build these roads, Umaiia,
will, instead of being, as now, the first
town in the State, no better than four or
five others.

Another Rnllrond to be Itnilt.
B. M. Marshall, Esq., of this c"t
informed us on yesterday that John I.
IJtair had agreed with the people of
Fremont to begin at once the construc
tion of a railroad from Fremont to West
l'oiut, in the Klkhorn Valley, whenever
400 voters of Podge county would aeree
to vote for the issue of thelxnids which
that county proposes to give in aid of
the work.
On Saturday night three hundred and
seventy-nine voters had signed a;i agree
ment to that etieet, and Mr. Marshall
says the requisite number wiil be raised
by Monday morning. The work will
therefore be commenced at once, and at
least ten miles of the road will be built
before the first day of February. AY

The Statesman rys the Governor has
not yet decided to call an extra session.
That join nal then proceeds to argue at
great length in lavor of such session, giv
ing as the only reason, the statement
that Nebraska should have a Peniten
tiary, and the last Legislature could not
agree to location and conseiuentiy failed
to make any appropriation for the erec
tion of this' institution. Now, the ses
sion he desires called will be composed
pretty "u" early of the same men, bringing
the sjime desires and prejudices that de
feated ihe measure last winter,and there
is no asstnance that a session called for
that express put pose will agree to either
the point or proposition.
It is apparent to everybody that the
Siate should and must have a Peniten
tiaiy. but it is questionable about calling
the same legislature in exira session,
for that purpose, that has just refused to
to make such provision. At the regular
session the matter can lie carried along,

Excavations and explorations of Pagan
Borne the buried citv which lies Ie
neath Christian Borne have for some
time been carried on under the personal
direction of the Pojie. The results of
these explorations have been of the h gh
est interest. The predecessor of the
present Pope Gregory XVI did no
little in the same direction. Puring the
time of Gregory, the monumental facade
of the Claudian Aqueduct was cleared
away from the rude works thrown up
against it in some ancient siege, and its
magnificent proportions were fully dis
closed. In the progress of this work a
Boman tomb was discovered beneath the
rubbish, erected to the memory of a
worthy and wealthy baker. Virgilius Eu
ryaces, and his wife. The tomb was
decorated with portrait statues and re
lievo illustrating the business which led
the deceased to fortune and honor. A
similar work is now in progress at the
Marcian Aqueduct, and the whole of its
monumental facade is to be cleared away
from the fortifications and sujterstruc
turcs of the middle ages, and the Mar
cian waters are to Tow, as old, to reresh
the iuhabitantsof the Eternal City. The
most valuable of all the discoveries made,
however, is that the ancient wharf of
the Fiinjxuium, where, buried beneath
the accumulated rubbish of more than a
thousand years, is an inexhaustible stock
of blocks of marble of the most costly
and rare qualities. The blocks already
taken out, some of which are of exceed
ing beauty, arc valued at over $-R)0,00 ;
and, as the deistt of these treasures is
said to c.ltend down the left bank of the
Tiber, from Aventine to the Church of
St. Paul beyond the walls, it is probable
that bis Holiness has there a store of
almost boundless wealth Among the
masses gotten out recently were a great
block of rose colored Oriental alabaster,
another o. povouazetto, several if if giallo
antico, and "fifteen pieces of African mar
ble, of which only two had hitherto been
known in Home. Thirteen pieces of

th unwise :
"Well, sir, I mount have Iteen drunk,

fact is I've done so little that way, that
I'll lie blamed if I know when I am
drunk. I dare say that some of these

I am, when it comes to that. But I will

felt, and if your honor concludes I was
drunk, why, I'll pay the line and say
nothing about it. You see I was troub

of lavender brandy to start it. Soon af
ter 1 felt a buzzing in my cars, and then
the he-cups was troublesome, but that I
thought was wind coming off. Then it
seemed to me as I walked along the
street that an awning jKist or water plug
every now and then would jump right up
before me, as if they would head me off.
I waL a little mad at this, and struck one
or two of them with my knuckles, but
my fists got the worst of it.

faces, some grinning at me, and one that
stood before a hotel, and nodded as if it
was acquainted with me, then made a
sign towards the door, as much as to say,

which 1 did. When 1 come out there
was the greatest to do that ever I saw. I
was sure there was an earthquake, lor
the houses and steeples were all stagger
ing about, and the street was just rocking
like a cradle. It was a sublime spectacle;
so 1 fetched up against a pump and held
on. while I took a good look at the mag
nitieeut scene. No panorama could
conic up to it ; houses, trees, fences, all
rearing and plunging like wild horM.-s.
The sight was worth a dollar and a half.
