Tbe Nemaha Valley Journal favors an
extra esnion of the Legislature on the
ground that it will give it editor a
chance to "break his colts ;" an honest
reason, to say the lea.st; and probably as
valid an many others which are not given,
but oovcred up with Mmie other appar
ent .reason. . .
It is hipo'f the railroad company will
do commercial business ns soon as they
get their new landing completed on the
Iowa side. We know it is of the utmost
importance that all the construction ma
terial possible be crossed over before
winter sets in ; but a barge load (one
trip) each day of goods for the, city
would be of great importance.
Joanna Nichole, who plead guilty to
the charge of larceny, in that slie stole
money from Alexander Sehlagel of Lou
isville precinct, was sentenced last Sat
urday to three months in the county jail.
The remarks of the Judge, in pronounc
ing her sentence, were quite affecting,
and should have been listened to by
every person having control of child
ren. Billy Miller, of the red blanket organ at
Nebraska City, says we are the possessor
of an opaque brain. lie does this be
cause we said "probably" the aforesaid
organ was waiting to see which side of
the extra session question the Chronicle
took. Now, Billy, my loy, if you only
knew how those ponderous thrusts
pierced our very soul (that isn't opaque)
we know j-ou would ease up, just a little.
We hope the suggestions of the Her
ald, made some time since, in regard to
roads in the county, will not be forgotten.
At the present time this question of
roads should be made the all important
one. There are many improvements of
a public character needed in the county,
but we know of none that are of such
general importance as the construction
of good roads. Every individual is inte
rested in having them, for they are used
by alL Let the matter be looked at im
mediately. A. G. Burnett, who has been acting as
Stage Agent at Lincoln during the past
six months, for F. M. Dorrington, of this
city, who is proprietor of the south-western
line of stages, picked up his traps
and left that locality some two weeks
since, taking with him some $300 of Mr.
I)orrington's money. He is supposed to
have gono to Sioux City or Brownville.

her mill privileges and her great agricul
tural resources cannot afford to be. "let

what you expect, to do 'and what you
ought to do ? The columns of the Her

the country, if some one will only kit us
have it in shape for publication.
By the last of the present week, or
the commencement of the ' next, cars
loaded with construction material for the
B. !c M. R. B. in Nebraska will cross to
this side from the head of the bar on the
Iowa side. Mr. Woodman is doing all
that can be done to secure the comple
tion of the read to Lincoln this winter,
and nothing but the very worst of weather
will prevent his accomplishing this result.
Of one thing, however, the public can
rest assured, tnd that is that the B. &
M. road in Nebraska will be one of
the best roads in the United States.
Everything is being done with a perma
nency that is unusual in the west. Every
bridge, culvert, or other improvement
necessary to the operation of the road,
is being constructed in a superior man
ner, without regard to the expense.

We learn from Sup't. Beales that not
withstanding the slim attendance so far
at the Teachers' Institute in this city, it
will be kept up during the week. Every

in the matter fchould attend during the
exercises. Superintendent Beals will de

Tt is thought that the stepincr Sully
which was snagged below St. Joseph,
will prove a total wreck. The Union
says that the sand has been washed from

went down in but four feet of water,
some idea of the treachery of the Missou

is much to be learned at tl.ese Institutes,
and every teacher in the county should
have been on hand at the appointed

feeling an interest in educational matters,
should attend these Institutes.

Mr. II, Li tilwell, of Omaha, called
on us this morning with a complaint that
about forty kegs of powder were crossed
on the ferry boat last evening, at the
time himself and several other gentlemen
were on the boat, aud that the captain
of the boat refused to cover the kegs
with wet blankets or otherwise protect
them from sparks, notwithstanding he
was requested to do so by several pas
sengers. We know nothing of the facts
in this case except as given us by Mr.
Stilweil. We do know that Captain
McGee has the reputation of being a
perfect gentleman, and we believe this is
the first complaint we have ever heard
against him as a ferryman. We doubt
not the complaining parties may have
been somewhat at fault, yet wc must say
that it is a dangerous business to carry
kegs of powder in an open wagon on the
ferry-boat with passengers, and we hope
some other and safer method of bringing
powder across the river may be adopted.

To the Editor Plattsmoith IIkk
ai.d: Your brief notice of the "Rail
Road Boat" of Saturday, suggest the
idea that the interest of this city maj
be promoted by uniting the Railroad ami
city ferries on the line you propose . e.
the crossing arranged for the Railroad
ferry. The President can do all of the
work, as she has a broad deck for teams
and carriages, and a barge for the R. R.
cars. To accommodate the city ferry
the steamer could drop down the river a
few rods below the car landing, where an
easy approach can be made for carriages,
and while the cars are being transferred
from the barge and return to it, the
steamer can make the other transfer
withont delaying the Railroad work for a
moment. Therefore we suggest for the
consideration of all parties interested,the
propriety of this arrangement, as it will
establish a first class ferry with an extra
boat to be used in cases of emergency.
Editor Plattsmoith Herald : In
your issue of Monday you state that
the cause of Wm. W Irishes commit
ting suicide is mere conjecture. Allow
me to say that in this you are undoubt
edly mistaken. There need be no con
jecture as to the cause, and is none
among those who are acquainted with
the circumstances. It is the general
opinion that this rash act was caused
direct by a story circulated by two men
who are to-day walking the streets of
I'lattsmouth with- heads erect. The
story is of too vulgar and unnatural a
nature to be even hinted at in public
print, and whether or not it has any
foundation in truth, there can be no
doubt that tbe effect of it upon Mr.
Irishes mind was the cause of his com
mitting suicide. This cannot be doubted
by any one knowing his sensitive nature.
If the story is true no man could for an
instant suppose Mr. Irish was in his
right mind at the time of the transac
tion and if it is true what must le
thought of the persons who gave it pub
licity, and were participants in the act.
If it le not true and I am inclined to
this belief--what then must be the fear
ful responsibility resting upon those two
men no,' not men, in either event. .

Mr. Willanl Buck,- son of the missing
Surveyor, arrived in the city yesterday
from a trip to the West in search of his

their wagons on Beaver Creek, a branch
of the Republican river. One of them
had been cut to pieces and portions of it
thrown into the stream. He also found
some scraps of paper with writing oc

Indians. No trace of the bodies was
found, and everything goes to show that
the party was attacked while away
from their wagons or else they
were all taken pri oners. Tlie

as Indians seldom make prisoners of
men. Wc think the discoveries made by
Mr. Buck are calculated to do away with
the last reasonable hope that any of the

Ttie Rody or Win. W. Irish Found,
Shot Through The Heart By
Hi Onii Hand.
Some days ago Ave noticed that Wm.
W. Irish, keeper of a restaurant over
Bloom & Co.'s Clothing house, had dis
appeared mysteriously. It was the gen
eral belief that he had left the country,
j et those who knew him best expressed
a fear that he had committed suicide.
He had said to Sheriff Johnson, some
days before he was missing, that he had
a thought of destroying himself. Abwut
four o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr.
Wm. Hicks found the body of a dead
man in the ravine west of C. II. Wol
cott's enclosure, about a mile south of
the city. He immediately notified Sher
iff Johnson of" the fact; who notified Cor
oner Fairfield. 31 r. Fairfield summoned
assistance, and proceeded ,to the spot.
The body was recognised 'as that of Mr.'
Irish,!tnd had becur-hot directly through
the heart. A Derringer pistol, which
Mr. Irish had purchased about a week
previous to his disappearance, was found
leide.him, empty. He had evidently
shot himself wile standing, and had fall
en forward onto his face, in which posi
tion ho was found by Mr. Hicks. ;
The body 'was conveyed to the clt',

What the cause of the unnatural ac
tion of Mr. Irish in taking his own life
was, is mere conjecture. He had ex
hibited symptoms of insanity upon one
or two occasions recently, but was not
supposed to be deranged, even by those
who were with him most. He had
given no indication of such intention,
exeept by his remark to Sheriff John
son, and left no explanation that would
lead to any other conclusion except that
he was at least temporarily insane. Of
Mr. Irishes early life, or whence he
came, we know nothing. He enlisted in
Co. "A," First Nebraska cavalry, at the
outbreak of the rebellion, and served
until the close of the war. He was cook
at regimental head-quarters for a long
time, and was a general favorite among
the officers. At the close of the war
he opened a restaurant iu this city, and
has lived in the city ever since, except a
short time he was in Lincoln, thus sum
mer. He was the landlord of the Sheri
dan House (now City Hotel) for a tiut?,
and only opened the restaurant over
Blooin & Co. 's about a month or six
weeks ago. He was last eeu, before he
was found as above, on the morning or
the 3rd instant.
