Clark's .cw I'p.Tuwn Billiard Hall.
We have heretofore noticed tho com

budding erected by llufus Clark, Esq.,
opposite the Brooks House, for a Billiard
Hall and Ten Pin Alley. The main
part of the building that used for a bar,
billiard room and store room, is now com
pleted, and will be opened to the public
to-night. The billiard room is large,
airy asd pleasant, and the lovers of
the game can enjoy themselves there
without danger of molestation from the
roughs which often congregate at place
of this kind.
The completion of the railroad to
Plattsmouth has had the effect to lessen
the price of transportation nearly one

merchants have the further advantage of
much lower renta. Goods can be fcold

Kvanstos, W. T., April 12.
The clothing and pieces of hones of
some unknown person were found to-day
near the railroad track, three miles east
of this place. In the coat pocket was
found a secon I class ticket San Fraa
cisco to St. Louis, via St. Joe, dated
Omaha and San
Francisco baggage check, No. 9,031.
Nothing was found to indicate the name
or residence. Wild beasts have torn the
body and dragged most of it away.
Late!1. Since the above was received
an examination of the trunk bearing
check 9,031 has been mad?. The only
things fuua l to iniicate the name and
residence were a book with tho name
Jamts M. Iiolan written in it, and a
pawn broker's ticket dated Sept. 1S69.
The Seward Adas asks the following
p?:t;uer.t question in its lust issue:
"When are we going to have a rail
roal dnwu the Bine Valley?'' ..
If there i3 any one subject that we
likt; to have agitated mere than another,
it is tli2 building of Railroads in the inte
rior of the State. They ic the great
civilizers of the age. and Nebraska needs
them. In answer to the question of the
Atlas, wc say you will get rail.oads ju.t
a- fa :t as you can convince railroad men
that it will psy ta build them. Now,
wo balieve.it will pay to build a railroad
from cither Line lu or Swward, or some
where in that region, across to the Blues
and thence to the Republican. If the
Atlas will give us all ths fads it can lay
hold of in relation to that region, and
will assist us to show to ths men who
control the mwticy that it will pay to
build a road in that region, it will be do
ing all it can to hasten the building of
the road. We are "with you," Mr.
Williams, on the railroad question.
CAN IT HE?
We extract the following lingular
sentence from a recent number of fhe
Nebraska City JWs: -
"They uake this issue against Morton
and Mason because they are supposed to
stand in tho way of plundering the Ci'y
Treasury and violating the . laws with
impunity.'' - .
We made a notice some days cince
that Morton was G-hing to getititothc
Republican rarty, and we advised the
Republican.; to beware of hij intrigues.
Are we mistaken iu tho import of the
wronged people who are seeking a remedy
for their wrongs.
There is very good philosophy in what
a poor man once sail: "When a
stranger treats tue rudely I comfort my
self with the reflection that it is not my
self he slights, but my old shabby coat
aud hat, which, to say ths truth," have
no particular claims to admirstion. So
if iny hat and cout choo.-e to fret about
it, let them : it is nothirir to mo."
There is more money to bo made in
buying land in the vicinity of Platts
mouth than most peopla are aware of.
Land is worth double the money here
that it is one hundred miles east of here. .
The products of th soil are worth more
here than anywhere in the interior of
Iowa, because freights are cheaper to
Chicago. Buy lauds in the vicinity of
Plattimouth while they are yet low, if
you wish to realize a handsome profit.

Transfer of Car Hsirlu tlie Floulb
The following note from Col. Doane
relative to the woik accomplished by the
transfer toatsat Omaha and Plattsmouth,
exhibits a fact of far greater import than
the quc-tion of which boat has accom
plished the greatest amount of work. It
brings out the fact that nearly as much
railroad business is don? at Plattsmouth
as at Omaha, notwithstanding we have
yet no western connection. If this is the
faot now (and the figures do not lie)
what will it be wheu the IJ. & M. is com

Dear Sir: I have seen some dis

papers, and some statements in an
Omaha paper concerning trausfer of
cars across the Missouri river.
It was said that during March an
Omaha boat crossed 10CU cais, including
It is very possible that the boat was
not at work all the month, but as the
length of transfer at Omaha is not very
many times the length of the boat, while
our Plattsmouth transfer is not far from

that our boat the President had doue
quite as much.

time she worked in March, which was
17 days, that she crossed west 403 and
cast 39$, making a total of 801 cars, or
an average of a little over 50 per day.

This new hotel building is now about
ready to he opened to the public, and
the hou.-, it1 enterprising proprietors
and go-ahead landlord arc all deserving
of something more than a passing notice.
The buildng was commenced last fall, by
Capt. ll B. Murphy, who, by the way,
has done as much toward building up
I'iattsmouth, if not more, than any other
man who has ever lived lu're. He has
helped the growth of tho city by his en
ergy, enterprise, and determination to do
something, and nnt "wjit for something
to turn up-" U commenced the erec
tion of this house whii four-fifths of the
men in the city said it would never pay;
but Murphy wnt ahead with a deter
mination to iiid;e it pay. Before the
building was completed he sold a half in
tercet to John Fitzgerald, Esq., who
sees the future of this city as clearly,
probably, as any other man in it. They
have labored un lor many disadvantages,
but the house is fin-Uy completed, and
we venture t isy thati'f U the kest hotel
building in the $t(tc It is not only the
best constructed building iu the State,
but it is the best arranged. Messrs. J.
C. Higbce & Soil have leased the hcu?c
for thre'T years. ThJ-ough ths kindness
of Mr. J. C. liibee, we were permitted
to make the tour of the house this morn
ing: aud we must say, in all can lor, that
it is undoubtedly the best furnished hotel
in the State, if not the best in the west
ern country. We ave sati.-fied that nei
ther Omaha nor Council Bluffs has any
thing to compare wi.hit. Tlie furniture
is hll new, and neither money or labor
has been spared to mike thingscomfort
able aud pleasaut. The houe affords
first-class accommodations i'tv over one
hundred guests, and probably one hun
died and fifty could bs accommodated as
well as at any other hotel in the State.
Every sleeping apartment in the house
is furnished with a new bedstead, new
mattrasses, carpets, bureau, wash stand,
etc., and every room in the house can be
entered direct from the hail, without
passing through another room ; neither
is there a dark room in the building, as
each one is lighted by either a window or
a sky-light. The bed room furniture is
superior to anything we have seen in the
west; taken altogether. The main par
lor is on tha second floor, in the south
east corner of the building. It Is fur
nished with a fine Brussels carpet, an
elegant set of chairs, sofa, etc., a superb
mirror, marble top centre table, and a
first-class piano. The reception room is
across the hall, and is furnished in keep
ing with tlie parlor. The oSet , bar and
baggag rooms occupy the first floor
except that jortion used as a store by
Ilatiiburgcr & Berliner. The dining
room is in the basement, west half, and
is as pleasaut a room as one could wish
for eitur winter or summer. The other
half of the baeraent is to have a barber
shop in frout, aud store room back. The
kitchen and servants quarters are in the
rear of the main building. The "get
up" of the building show3 that Murphy
knew exactly what was needed in this
city, and the furnishing of it demon
strates that Higbee will be the most
popular landlord west of the Missouri

Some weeks since wo mcntiond that
Joel Parcel, Esq., was manufacturing a
new washing machine of the above name,
and gave it as our opinion that it was
a "good thing to have in the family."
Since that time we have seen the ma
chine tested, and have decided to invest
in one for use at our own domicile. It
is the first and only machine that we
have seen which exactly mcvts our ideas
of a washing machine. It is simple,
does cot wear the cloths, and takes the
dirt out with less work than any machine
extant. Mr. 'Parcel has a fw of them

There is no necessity for our people
being forced to sell the raw material
raised in Nebraska, to tho inan tfactarers
in other States, and buy it back when its
value has boon increased by the looms
and other machinery of enterprising men
in other States. There is abundance of
water power all over this State, and it
saems suicidal in a financial point of
view, that we should longer neglect our
own interests, and go ou from year to
year contributing to the wealth of other
States,' by maintaining a loss in our own.
Manufactures will contribute to build up
the State as rapidly as th agricultural
interests. All we need is the ne..esary
enterprise to start the matter intelli
gently. In the matter of wool and hides
we venture to say enough of these arti
cles, in the raw material, are furnished
in Nebraska t supply the entire home
demand, and so it is with many other
substances. Let our capitalists think
favorably of this matter.
