whi'f. and by the iisatne.-s and thrift evi--lou.-ed
by all around. But why talk of
li'.Lse without a name? and this has
:ie. aud with it is coiincc.ed a legend.
In the ar!y days, ere a pale face was
cm upon the prairies of the west, the
juniors of a small but valiant band
"f Aborigines were encamped upon the
fiu'.ik of a beautiful river that river now
psc through this village and were
there surprised by an oppo-ing band,
and out off without a remnant. There
upon, and annually after, the maidens
f the tribe would assemble upon the
pot and weep weeping rivers of water.
Heuce the n:--me. Weeping Water, ap
plied to the river, and subsequently to
th village. There is one large grist
mill, running three sets of heavy burr
roue-; one wagon maker's ahop, two
-hur?hes and a beautiful school house in
the plaee, mid contains a population of
fro an 1M0 to 300 inhabitants.
Weeping Water is surrounded by
bluffs in which there are several fine
atone quarries. In fact, here can be
een that vliich the State of Nebraska
acarcely elsewhere exhibits, a stone wall
-n bun Ired and fifty feet long, three
fVet thick, and five feet high, composed
of a superior quality of building stone.
Th soil is good and the water pure and
oft. Time necessitated the usual adieus.
Proeee line: several miles upon the bank
f t e Weeping Water, Elm wood, a
small, new nn I thriving village was
rcs-hed, thence crossing the rolling
pmiric to Stevens' Creek, which may be
Mid to be Ebnwood repeated, as to
thrift. The journey was continued to
Lincoln -he eapital of ths State, the
whole roub" being ab-nost a continually
repeated l "lling piairie of finest fertility,
nnd taking into conoideratiou the fact
that no sloughs or waste land ar em
braced :shi.i the region, will bear a
suopiior c-mrip.ri.-.on with any of the
i i ii- ii i .i
inoro ea-te;ly of the Western States.
The country" u well watered by living
springs of soft, pure water, forming clear
nn I hiutif'd s reams. There is one se
rum objection to this section, the scar
city of timber, taken in connection with
the extensive operations of speculators,
the banc of any community, who arc
holding vast tracts of land, unimproved,
for the rise, easts a serious blight upon
he region. That, which otherwise would

J hills, dotted over with farm houses

v h imoroTcuients. couipaiatively vastly
separated, and only here and there a
dwelling. The benefit of close asst cia
tion among the settlers is' lost; and the
lack of combination of labor and con
centrated efforts, leaves the roads in a
rory normal condition, which is most se
verely felt in the Ftonus of the spring
and autumn. It is hoped, therefore,
that in any future settlement, the specu
lator may be left behind to eke out his
dormant condition amid the blight ho

I rounded as it is, by vast re iions of great
taMrn4t(t or 1 fertility, rapidly cttlirifr by the prori
' dent and industrious farmer, is irreatJy
i enhanced V-v the eenstruetion of railroad
both to and from it. and some of which
are in an advanced stage of" coiriltioti.
These will mtke it the mart for a lart'
noitiuu of the State lvinjr to the north
and west. The salt works at this point
j are of great importance, and f r which it
I wi'l le safe to bespeak a momentous fu
! hi re only equaled by the requirements
! fur dairying and family purposes. Al
, ready a three-fourths interef-t has been
sold by tlni original owner for thirty
thousand dollars, and preparations have

table pin poses, and many other family
requirement. Careful examinations,
and the application of close thorough
te.-ts have developed the fact that it is
free from any trac; of lime, ati unusual
but excellently happy desideratum.
Notwithstanding the inexhaustible talt
formations in this region, only" a few
basins are affected by the
collection of saline matter, and the bal
ance of the country is of great value,
being productive of a superior quality,
and a fair quantity of cereals, besides
being well adapted to stock raising. The
sub-aoil, a clay loam of a browniah grey
color, has the peculiar property of hard
ening upon exposure.
After an introduction to the Governor,
various members of the Legislature, and
other officials of the State, the journey
was continued to Beatrice, the shire town
of Gage county, situated upon the Blue
River. Too much cannot be said of this
i hfnutlfiil n!:ico. of if ranl.1 orntr tli ts
productive soil, its nianv permanent ini-
p.-ovements, its important flouring and
saw mill-, with others underconstructioii,
its branch house of e-istern manufactured
farminr imi!emcnts, its active and in-
i . ..
cix-xsing Liuniess appertaining to agri
cultural interests, all of which are greatly
j enhanced by the exhaustions water power
I furnished by the beautiful Blue, which,
j for availability, is unsurpassed by any
: river of the east. Level tests wen ap-
! plied to the river for the distance of
! a!ont four mile-, and an average fall was
: found of nesrly eight feet to the mile.
! The quantity is Hitlieient for anj- a;id all
I manufactures that mav be or can be cs-
t i a " . ti i
tatiiisned ujion it. l ne river, lea by
spriiijis, makes but a plight departure
during the year from its maximum or
minimum height, a desirable con.Jition
of fact. The population ranges from ten
to fifteen hundred.
Below Beatrice, a short distance, is
the celebrated .Jenkin s Mills, among the
most, if not the mt.it important in the
State. Time again sounded its call for
departure, and striking across the coun
try, Maridian, upon the Little Blue, a
small town with cxceediniily favorable
prospects, having a saw miil and a grist
mill under construction, was passed.
The land around .Maridian contains too
much sand for great fertility and is defi
cient in water, which is noticable in an
increasing ratio for nearly the whole dis
tance from Beatrice. Throughout this
whole region the .peculator has thrown
his blasting presence. Large portions of

hes dormant, and because of hi in the
actual settler suffers and must continue
At Maridian the party was joined by
Mr. Alexandre, one of the oldest pio
neer settlers upon the border, accompa
nied bv Mr. Talmade, an Indian sT-out.
This was considered all the additional
force necessary, as the border settlements
had in nowise been molested during the
winter by the appearance of hostile Indi
ans. Passing through the countie of
Jones and Jefferson, in the latter of
which camp was pitched for the sixth
night, upon the head waters ef Spring
Creek, the journey wa continued to the
county of Nuckolls. For t lit? distance
of ten miles fiom Maridian tlu- land docs
not material! improve, but from that
point to the camp on Spring Creek the
valuable projiertios increa e. and thence
for the distance of twelve miles only fine
rolling prairies are seen. Frequent ex
aminations of the soil developed only
black alluvial for the surface, of fine
qualities. Still the deficiency in the
quantity and general diffusion of water,
although of good quality, i appreciable.
Continuing the trip up a very gradual
aceut, with more and more extended
view, at lust the summit of the divide
was reached. It is said that when the
soldiers of Napoleon the First canto in
sight of Moscow, many burst with tears,
so much were they impressed and over
joyed at the sijjht, then the cry Moscow !
Moscow! arose upon the air ami was car
ried from platoon to platoon, to the rear
of the army, repeated and repeated by
each platoon, successively, as it came in
sight of the city. But language would
be idadequate t express the extended
beauty of this scene. For miles upon
miles it. was but one vast panorama.
The rolling and winter seared prairie, the
telts of wood windinsr along with the
contour of the streams and rivers, the
bright and s'oiniug water flashing in the
opening, and away off in the distance
the twirling smoke from the eub'n of the
fast progressing settler or cihapsa stray
camp tire, all formed a:i impressive sight.
The divide extends north and south aud
the soil is exceedinslv rich. Uixiii tlv
summit of this divide is a pond of water
which never dries, covering from forty to
sixty acres. Ami although there are but
few if any streams, wntjr of excellent
quality, pure and soft may be obtained
at any point by excavation from sixteen
to twenty-five feet. Besides there arc
frequent and numerous springs from
three to four feet deep, of a very supe
rior quality with n visible outlets and
yet strange to say the evidence of those
persons acquainted with them is that
they n".vcr lail either in quality or quan
titv. From the summit of the divide
the slope to the southeast is very gradual
to the valley of the Republican, a beaut i
ful river from twenty to thirty rods in
width, with bottom lauds from one and
one-half miles to three miles wide. The
rise from the bottom lands to the rolling
prairie upon the northwest is exceed
ingly easy, extending for a long distance
and is then continued to the summit of
the divide. Descending, numerous beau
tiful, but small streams aro met with.
These are but the outlets to the peculiar
springs heretofore spoken of. and like
them are pure ami soft. These streams
are heavily wooded with burr oak and
some elm in fact ihe heaviest timber
observed in the State, while the borders
i the Republican grow thir strip of
eottuiiwood which occasionally are ampli
fied ino- mairnifieent proves. This was
the Eden sought for. Here was exceb
lent soil, an amplitude of good wat6f
ami sufficient timber for tho settlors' pur
purpose, and, what was equally as im
portant, i'3 peru'udous speculator had
not yet arrived, neither bad the pioneer
armronriated. Here, then, were the ae
1 tual eun?yj cia-ie,- and nianr thcuands
f of nere measured and located. The I
! eurface is tomp.ised of black alluvial of
great richness, from two to two and one-
half feet in depth, well adapted to the !
ra?ses, cereals and vegetables. Ihe
dairying qualifications are superior, and
for tx-k raising unsurpassed. And this
is i hara -teristicof the whole surrounding
country. Many thorough chemical tests
were applied to the soil which showed
that there was not a trace of alkali in it.
The subsoil is of a light brown clay,
hardening on exposure to the atmos
phere, and to which as a bottom soil
there ia not a superior. The grass,
spontaneously produced, is of the blue
joint species, in quality second only to
the Kentucky blue grass, and those of
The shore of the Beptiblican upon the
Kansas side forms a bluff in which there
are ledges of beautiful limestone, and
back of which are extensive rolling
trairies. The climate is all that could
is asked, even superior, if possible, to
that of Eastern Nebraska. Notwith
standing the fine, picturesque country
in the Southern part of the State, there
are yet many lands equal in all respects,
as to richness of soil- abundance of tini
her for years to come, and water in
abundance. The lines along the line ef
the great Union Pacific llailway, of
which the company hold every alternate
section for twenty miles on each hide of
the road, as also the Government lands,
maybe homesteaded, through the whole
line of the great Platte Valley. During
the month of October Mr. C. B. Shaller,
in company with his excellency Gov
ernor Butler, visited the southern por
tion of the State. On reference to his
remarks from the llepubliran and Jlcr
uhf., he has not exaggerated facts.
His account may with perfect truth
bear to be more highly colored, an actual
survey of our .lO.tKH) acres having been
just completed under the inspection
jointly with Mr. Schaller aud our com
mittee before referred to. A portion of
this report reads a follows: The fol
lowing morning after a very hasty toilet
we made an early start, following the
Blue to its headwaters fully determined
to investigate and surrey the counties of
tFefl'er.-on, Fihnore, Knuckoll.s, Clay,
Adams and Webster. Nothing can ex
cel the lovely, fertile and salubrious
country through which the Little Blue
1 was much disappointed in Webster.
On the published maps it, appears- to be
well timbered and watered by numerous
streams, all emptying into the Republi
can river. A lame portion of this county
is almost useless for farmin.-. Taking
the county as it generally runs it is beau
tiful and fertile, and I will suy that in a
few years Nebraska will not be second to
any of the Western States.
All parties wishing to become actual
settlers will receive all information by

To the Srnute and Hjvseof lirprescnta
It 5t unusunl to notify the two houses
of Congress by messaire of the promul
gation of the proclamation of the Secre
tary of State of the ratification of a con
stitutional amendment. In view, how
ever, of the vast importance of the 15th
amendment of the constitution, this day
declared a part of tbt revered instru
ment, I deem a departure from the usual
custom justifiable a measure which
makes at once 4,000,000 of people voters,
who were heretofore declared by the
highest tribunal in the land no citizens
of the United States, nor eligible to In
come so, with the assertion that at the
time of the declaration of independence,
opinion was fixed and universal among
the civilized portion of the white race,
ml regarded as an axiom iu morals as
well as in politics, that black men had no
rights which white men were bound to
respect, is indeed a meanure of grander
importance than any other act of the
kind from the foundation of our free
government to the present time. Insti
tutions like ours, in which all power is de
rived directly from the people, must de
pend mainly on their intelligence, patriot
ism and indusrry. I call the attention,
therefore, of the newly enfranchised
race to the importance of striving, in
every honorable manner, to make them
selves worthy of this new privilege. To
the race, more favored heretofore by our
laws, I would say, withhold no legal
privilege ot advancement to the new
citizens. The framers of our constitu
tion firmly believed that a Republican
form of Government could not endure
without intelligence and education gene
rally diffused auiong the peeple. The
Father of His Country, iu his farewell
add reus used this language: - '"Promote
then, as a matter of primary importance,
institutions for the general diffusion of'
knowledge. In proportion as the struc
ture of the government rives tone to
public opinion, it is essential that public
opinion, shall be enlihtod." In his
first annual message to Congress the same
views were forcibly presented, and are
aeain ureed in his eighth message.
I repeat that the adoption of the Fif
teenth Amendment to the Constitution
completes the greatest civil change, and
constitutes the most important event
ttiof line ii i-ii 1 Lindn tlia fiattriri film
into lift. The change will be benefited
in proportion to the speed that is given
to the urgent recommendation of Wash
ington. If these recommendations were
important then,- with a population of
but a few millions, how much more im
portant now, with a population of forty
millions, which is increasing in a rapid
1 would therefore call upon Congress
to take all measures within their consti
tutional power to promote and eneourage
popular education throughout the conn
try and upon the'peoplo everywhere to see
to it that all who possess and exercise
political rights shall have an opportunity
to acquire knowledge which will make
their share in government a blessing and
not a danger. By such means only can
the-benefits contemplated by this amend
ment to the constitution be secured.

By a telegram from Washington to
(Jen. Hall, President of ths St. Joseph
and Denver City Railroad, we learn that
the Secretary of the Interior has issued
his order withdrawing from sale, pre
emption or homestead entry, thv 1 1 1
for 120 miles each aide the route of the
road, from El wood to its junction with
the Union Pacific Railroad, at or near
Fort Kearney, until such time as the Di
rectors of the road shall have selected
their lands granted by Congress to aid in
This grant is for 6,400 acres of land
fr each mile of this road constructed.
The distance from El wood to the junc
tion is about 170 miles making in all
over one million feven hundred thousand
acres of land as good as secured to the
road by this coup dr. main.
Tho directors of the company will pro
ceed at once to make the selections of
their lands from the unsold government
lands along this line. There are no un
sold government lands within their range
now for the first one hundred miles, from
Elwood. However, the company can se
lect from any unsold lands beyond this,
to make up deficiency. These lands will
be patcned to the company as the road
progresses. For the first forty miles of
road now completed, they can secure
patents as soon as the hands are selected,
and so on as the work progresses. This
secures the early completion of the St.
Joe t d. c.;r. R.
It appears that the officers of the
Central Bran eh, or Atchison road, have
been guilty of a vast .amount of little
ness, nt to use a harsher term. For a
time they endeavored to get Gen. James
Craig to log-roll for them, but failing in
this, they assured him tlu-y had decided
to run their road up the Republican in
stead of the Little Blue, and would not
therefore interfer s with the St. Joseph
and Denver City railroad. On Saturday
General Hall called on the Secretary of
the Interior in company with .-eveial
Congressman and Gen. Craig, and all were
astounded "to learn that the Secretary
had just received an official document
a--kini- him to postpone action in the
matter until the Central Branch could
be heard from, as they pn. pos d to take
the Little Blue route. This nettled Gen.
Craig, and in hi forcible manner he laid
bare before the Secretary all the decep
tion and duplicity of the officers, agents,
tVc. The Secretary asreed with him,
and promptly made the desired order.
In thi connection we may state that
of iron tor the St. Joseph

much exereieed about ( ieneral Sheridan'a
'inhumanity" in punishing British In

The Chicago Journal says, in the light
of the blazinc guns from which Sepoys
were blown into fragments and the re
cent inhuman conduct of the Captain of
Her Majesty's steamer, who boa-ted he
"had cut the vh-ile quarter off a damned
Yankee frigate," and left ber officers and
crew to go to the bottom, which a naval
court has decided was an offence punish
able with six months' suspension we
think the les John Bull says about hu

THE INDIAN l!KSTIOJf.
Washington (March 4 Dispatch to tha Cincin
General Sherman has written the fol
lowing letter, in reply to that received
by him from Lieutcn.int-General Sher
idan, a copv of which was transmitted
in the dispatchesof yesterday :
, ' 1 1 E a 1 ) t j t " a ut e rt s A r n t y U. S.. )
"WAsHiNtno.N. D. C, March :M, '70. j
" General 1'. If. Sheridan, Command
ing Division of the Missouri, Chicago,
General Your letter of March is,
is received. I have shown it to the
Secretary of War. It is, of course, to
be supposed that some of our people
prefer to believe the story of the l'iegan
massacre, as trumped up by interested
parties at Benton, more than one hund
red miles off, r:f:her than the official
report of Colonel Baker, who was on
the spot, as is the responsible party. I
prefer to lelievc that the majority of the
killed at Mountain Chief's camp were
warriors : that the firing ceased the mo
ment resistance was at an end ; that
quarter was given to all who asked for it,
and that a hundred women and children
were allowed to go free to join the other
bands of the same tribe, known to be
camped near by, rather than the absurd
report that there were only thirteen war
riors killed, and that all the balance
were women and children, more or less
affected with small-pox. The Indiaus
on the reservations are exclusively under
the protection of the Indian Bureau,
but the bureau officers had officially noti
fied you of their inability to restrain
those very Piegan Indians, and had
called on you to punish them for their
repeated and unnecessary murders; and
you had as early as last October laid
down the plan for a winter surprise and
attack, which was at once sent to the
Indian Bureau, eliciting no recion
strances; so there is no question at all
of responsibility, save and except only
as to whether Co'onel Baker wantonly
and cruelly killed women and children,
unresisting, and thia 1 cannot believe.
"The army cannot resist the title of
emigration that is flowing toward these
Indian lands, nor is it our province to
determine the question of boundaries.
When called upon, we must, to the ex
tent of our power, protect the settler,
and on proper demand we. have al.-o to
protect the Indian lands against the in
trusion of the settlers. Thus we are
l laced between t o tires a mo't uu
pleae&nt dilemma, from which wc cannot
escape andweiuust sustain the oScers
on the spot who fulfill their orders.
"I repeat, therefore, that you must
do the best you can in each instance,
and trust to the sound judgement of the
country after all the truth is revealed.
"I am truly yours,
" W. T. Sherman, General."
