Wc are indebted to Secretary Kcn
nard for certified coppies of the different
acts published in to-day's paper. A re
solution authorizing the publication of
the general laws paused at the recent

State could be officially informed of
what is law.
The Lincoln Sta'cfmnn has again
changed hands. Messrs. G. A. Randall
and N. W. Smail.s both practical print
ers have purchased the establishment,
and wc doubt not they will make the
Statesman a first-class newspaper and an
effective advocate of the interests of Lin
coln and Nebraska. We have unfunded
faith in practical printers when they
strike out in the publishing business.
They generally understand the r-hoals
and quicksands, and know exactly how
to vtficr clear of them. Success to tho

them politically (provided there was
anything of their party left to destroy.)
There appears to have been a series of
petty thefts committed at East Platts
iuouth recently, from the B. & M. Co' a.
cars, and it is generally believed that a
regular nest of small fry thieves have in
fested that locality, for some time past.
They made rather an extensive haul a
short time since, and tho company deci
ded to take steps to get rid of such a lux
ury. Warrants were issued for several of
'them, and the -Sheriff of Mills county
gobbled two of them hist week. Yester
day Sheriff Johnson, of this city, rcccivctl
a dispatch, requesting him to arrest an
other of the outfit who had skedaddled to
this side tbe river, thinking thereby to es
cape the officer.--. J I had hired as a
I rakeman on Mr. Pr.i khurst's train, and
undoubtedly supposed himself sccuro
from 1 ova justice. Upon the arrival of
the train from the w?st, at 4' p. l.i. last
cvvinng, Sheriff Johnson tapped him
gently on aq shoulder and requested Liui
to ''come." The fellow stood somewhat
upon his dignity, an l demanded to see
the "papers." Johnson jocosely in
formed him that papers were not required
west of the Missouri river. ' lie finally
decided to go, and matters were afterward
explained to his entire satisfaction so fir
as the "papers" were concerned. The
Sheriff of Mills county is expected over
here after him this evening. The com
pany have determined to break up the
"nest," and we know .they will succeed.

The completion of the B. Sc. M. across
Iowa to this city, and the further exten
sion of the same hue westward to Ash

opening up a country .which is not sur
passedno, nor' equalled by any other
in the world in point of agricultural fa
cilities. The tide of immigration is set
ting toward this vast region,' and iu less
than two: years from this date the trade
of the country drained by the B. it Mj

the entire trade of the State is at the
present time. It, behooves the busines
men of Plattsmouth.' Burlington and
Chicago to "look well to the west," and
see that this trade, is not allowed to be di
verted from its . natural channel. It
does not, probably, ' look like a great
thing to day, but uss the twig is bent,"
etc., will apply to trade as well as any
thing else ; therefore, we feel it a duty
we owe to the business' interests, of this
oitjr in particular to remind -our business
men of the importance of looking after
this trade note. A little judicious work
on the part of the business men of
Tlattsmouth, Burlington and Chicago
will insure trade from this region that
will yet equal the trade of a nation,

to this State from Ohio, and had been,

Wo Kae always contended that Platts
mouth would be the river base for the
immense agricultural regions of the west
and southwest of-us, and that nine-tenths
of the travel between interior Nebraska
and the east would cross the "mother of

being realized now. To-day all the trade

Lincoln, for the counties of Saunders,

As the subject of immicration was

call for an extra session. I take the lib
erty of enclosing to you the followiiig
extract from-a letter of .Col. O. if
Irish, our Consul at Dresden, dated
December 10th, bearing on the - subject:

the State Department would forward

will enable the Governor to send one of

llw f (mt ( Lincoln.
We frequently receive letters from our
Eastern friends and subscribers, making
inquiries concc'ning the accessibility of
our town and the number of railroads wc
have present or prospective. For the in
formation of these we will state the sit
uation. The only- way of reaching Lincoln,
heretofore, has been by stage either from
Portsmouth or Nebraska City i the dis
tance from cither place being a'-out t
miles, and no great choice iu the routes.
This spring commences a new eia in
our approaches. The 1. it M. R. R
is a-straight line from Chicago to Lin
coln, and is now finished to within thhty
miles of our town, eroding the Missouri
at the flourishing city of PlattMnouth.
This road has finished its grading ui far
as oar city, and has put down about '.)
miles of track during the winter, and
will have, the iron h--r.-" neiabiriL' at the

A. few weeks ago a merchant of this

of the honeymoon, business required his
presence in St. Louis. lie notified his
