The Supreme Court of the United
States has decided that soldiers who en
listed under the President's call for vol
unteers in ISol, aud who were discharged
upon a surgeon's certificate, on account
of disability other than wounds, within
two years after date of enlistment, are
entitled to the $100 bounty, the same as
if they had served their full term, or
leeu discharged on account of wounds.
This decision is final, and will be hailed
with joy b-3- many soldiers who have long
been deprived of their due by a distinc
tion without a difference.

Lincoln, April 11th, 1870.
Ki. Herald : After having enter
tained considerable doubt as to whether
a criticism, which wa3 published in the
Nebraska Statesman of last week, upon
the opinion I gave you in my last of S.
M. Hewlett's lecture at this place, is
worth the ink necessary to be u?;rd in a
reply; and, after having concluded that
it is not, I have yet seen fit to waste that
amount of ink, although my pocket, as
the gentlemanly critic shrewdly surmL-es,
being "empty," I did at first have some
scruples as to the propriety of being to
that unnecessary expense.
.And first I will mention the only truth
ful representation which the critic makes
of lay statement, which is that I
styled the lecture "stale and quoted
jokes." Now, as to this, as it seems ev
ident from the tenor of the criticism,
that this was the ouly humorous lecture
which the author CTer attended, if in
deed he attended this, I would not be
surprised if he had taken exceptions to
it, he has not, however, after having re
peated it either attempted to disprove,
or even so much as deny this statement,
and hence, he being a very erudite man,
it must be presumed, in accordance with
the ordinary rules of disputation, he in
tended to admit its truth, although by
sodjing has made the last two sentences

What such a person would be likely to
infer from it would be, that the audiaiico
did appreciate hint for jnl what lie was
worth, no more or loss, and judging from
opinions of the lecture which such per
sons have since expressed to me, that
was the ease. Latt, however, I may be
misconstrued, I will say that I did not,
and do n. t, unless the author of the
criticism was present, suppose that there
was a "jivvih skidC in the entire audi
ence. I wish to offer a tribute to the
author's sagacity by means of which he
inferred that I do not live here, and that
I am a "nice young fellow," both of
which remarks, as in fact does his entire
letter, bear testimony to his high culture
and genteel breeding. As to his elegant
allusion to my "empty pocket" and his
scruples at saying that I did not attend
the lecture on Satarday night and pay
my fifty cents, but waited until Sunday
night and put ten cents into the hat, it
is evident I could not have criticised the
first lecture without hearing it; and as
lay letter expressly states that "I did not
have the pleasure of listening" to the
lecture cn Sunday evening, the last silly
attempt at a low witticism is too weak to
be deserving mention, and the first being
the way that, people of his stamp, whoe
money constitutes their worth, usually
have of advertising their own pecuniary

it is far more probable that he would be

within the last month, and we learn that
there arc no less tfian five n;w building,
for stores and dwellings in contemplation
for the ensuing month. We are p:ond
to chronicle ihive evidences of thrift and
enterprise on the part ot the citizens.

cxtention to his business the coining
season. He will put up an addition to
his store and employ several hands in
his shoo thop. His custom work is in
creasing. Rankins is now cat for his
Spring stock, and will also build a store
during the coming season. Manly &
Stevenson are preparing to build, and
will considerably enlarge thir business
in the sale of agricultural implements.

We sometimes catch ourselves wonder
ing how iiiaiiy of the young ladies whom
we meet with are to lierform the nart ol
homsckcej.ers, when the young men who
now eye them to admiringly have per
suaded them to become their wives.
We li.-ten to those young ladies of whom
we speak, and hear them not only ac
i knowledging, but boasting of their igno-
ranee of all household duties, as if noth-
ing would so lower them in the estima
tion of their friends as a con!irs.-ion of
an ability to lake bread and pics, or
cook a piece of meat, or a disposition to
engage in any useful employment.
Speaking from our own youthful leeol
lections, we arc free to say thai taper
fingers and lily-white hands are very
pretty to look at in a young man's eyes,
and sometime we h ive known the art
less inriocerics of practical knowledge
displayed by a young miss to a-u-ear
ra -.her interesting than otherwise. Rut
we have lived long enough to learn that
life is full of rugged
ot rugged experiences, and
1 that tt.e mo.it loving, romantic and aeti-
cate peon.e. niu-1 live 011 cooked or otht-r-
j w.isc 1rc;,ar,.a j-;0,i, anj ;u homes kept
clean an ! ti Iv by industrious hands.
And for all practical purposes of mair'K-d
life, it i generally found that for a hus
band to sit and, gaze at a wife's taper fin
gers and white hands, or for a wile lu sit
and be looked at and admired, does not
make the pot boil or put the smallest
piece of food in the pot. Ex.

Dilution. 1 mm all sections we fiear ot
the thousand preparing to emigrate to
Nebra.-ka. The La-tern States are al
ready alive to the advantages offered to
settlers making homes on the Western
prairies, and we are informed that over
one hundred families are already prepar
ing to move to Nebraska from one point
alone. It is ak-o said that two hundred
families more are preparing to come out
in May next.
This is our great encouragement and we
look forward to the time when all the
beabtiful streams in the interior of the
State will be dotted here and there with
cultivated farms and the busy hum of the
industrious worker will be heard from one
end of Nebraska to the other.
Very soon the real merits of this western
country will be appreciated, and we need
not fear but that in a very few years will a
population be here that will astonish visi
tors from the Last. We hope our county
commissioners will provide come means to
induce the immigrats to locate in Seward
which is not surpassed in the State, as a
farming and manufacturing county.
George Francis Train is speaking in
