Iii the foregoing six ue-titui- the num

tained, and strictly speaking, the census
of population is theie. Hut it is desira
ble that the profession, occupation or
trade of each person, male m female,
shad be obtained, an 1 to this end a ques

Seiiou ly, however, it bcin desirable to
it-arn what t lie various occii.itions of
tlie population are, this inquiry should
be fuily answered.
RKAl. AM) PKUStlN'AL P5H"PE!tTY.
Tlie eiiihtli and ninth inquiries refer
to the value of real estate and personal
property owned by each person not the
value assessed by Governnteut for taxes,
but the value put upon Mich property
either by the owner him-cif or by the
m irk t. For example : a person may
own a hou-e and lot woilh 5' 1 ,0. U. lie
should report the value at the first named
tin u res to the censm takers, so titat it
may be ascertained what was the ca.-h
value of uli t he real and person tl prop
erty in the county, State and throughout
the Republic on the 1st of June of the
PLACE lit' KlftTir, PAKF.XTAOE, AC.
The next inquiry of impo. tanet: is tlie
tenth, which requires the place of birth
of ca.-h person: if a native of the Lui
ted St.res. the name of the State or
Terr tory must be given; if of loreii'ti
birth, tlie name of the country in which
born. Inquiries eleven to seventeen, in
schedule one, relate to parental, social,
ai.d educational matters. The eleventh
and twelfth ret 1 '.lire Uid ml
repine U.d m! -mation j
whether the parents of the person were
of foreign biah, and are under two lines,
one being for the father ari l the other
for the mother, so that in eases whore
one parent was born, say in J''urope, and
lite other was u native, ihe fact may be
recorded appropriately. Wheie the per

No inquiry it ma le as to the so'-i;d co;i

she has been married within the year.
This is an important fact to ascertain.
When the last cciius was taken, ail per

were single, manied, or widowed.
Inquiries, tifteen, .sixteen and seventeen
refer to attendance at school within the
year and to want of educational attain

CO.NSl ITlTI'i.NAl. KELATION-S.
Under ibis head are the nineteenth
and twentieth inquiries whieii .onciude
all to be .ui-we cd in schedule one. Tiie
one requires inl'o; n: atloii legarding the
male citizens of the I'nitcd States of '21
Vear.s oi age an J upward. This is a very
prop-.-r inquiry as it enables the Govern
ment to ascertain the voting population
of the republic at the present time, ari l,
a regards New V01 k city in particular,
will .-et at rest tlie charges of f.aud in
connection wi; h our eeectiou. Ttie per
tinence of the twentieth and hi inquiry
is not so apparent. It requires inl'ornia
tion regarding "-tia'.e citizens of tlie
United States ef '21 years nl' age ari l Hp
win!, who-e right to vote is denied or
ab.ilged on other gioun ls than relK'I
L.iu or other crime." 'J his doubtless in
cludes p-r-tuis living in States where a
property or educational quaulieauou is
deman led by their constitutions, and
pcr.sons incapacitated by reason 01 an
incuts, such as madness, fcc.. and in this
respect is proper. It woulJ also be in-
tcresting and important t-o learn how
many persons arc denied the right to

Qt ESTIONS NOT TO T.E ASKED OR To
WHICH THE ANSWERS ARE OPTtoSAL.
It seeu.s, from a note at the top of
Schedule 1, that .the itiouiries relating to
profession, occupation or trade, ami to
. ..: 1 : i i...
educational attainments "are not to le
asked in respect to infants.' It would
also seem to be optional to persons
whether to state if their parents were of
foreign birth, if they attended school
within the year, it they can read or
write, and what their constitutional rela-
tions aie, because the note states that
the-e inquiries are to lie an-we red by an
affirmative mark, as . if at all We
may, however be in error, and, as refusal
to give the imonnatioii involves a heavy
fine, we would advise everybody to rep'y
to all the inquiries without exception.
Schedule No. - is devoted solely to a
list of persons who died during the year
ending June 1, 1 S7t. A- in the fir.-t !
M-hedale. tlie number of the family is
given; then fi!o-s the name of every
person who died during the year whose
place of abode at the time of death was
in this ftmily. The age at last birthday
(where an tifant the number of mouth--),
the sex, color and condition that is.
whether single, married or widowed.
Also the place of birth, whether foreign
or native, naming the Stnte Territory or
foreign country; the nativity of the pa
rents, the month in which the psrson
died, the proi'e-sion, occupation and
trade, and tlie disease or cau-e of death.
This table will prove id great value to
medical men ami to science in general.
The .inquiries are simple and will be
readily answered, and being divested of
the ft.rm-.dahl.! disquisitions on ' zyuiot
ics" which l.'r. Harris used to indulge in
weekly, will prove a source of much inte
rest and instruction to all concerned in
the health of our population.

The third schedu e is devoted to the
rural districts and is full of inquirie- of
importance. It requires the name of
the a-ent, owner, or manager of the
pro'erry, the number of aces of im
proved land, and the namber of acres of
woodland, and other unimproved. Next
in order, inquiry is made of the present
cash value of the farm, and the sauie of
the firming implements and machinery.
By way of ascertaining the expenses in
curred in working each farm, inquiry is
me.de of the total amount of wages paid
dur ng the year, including value of board.
Uri ler the head of" "Live Stock, June 1,
Jf7t," are spaces in which tnu-tlie writ
ten, under thvir appropriate sub-heads,
the number of horses, mules, and asses,
milch cows, working oxen, oilier cattle.
sheep, and -swine, and the value of ad
live stock on the" farm on the date meii
tioiied. Next in order, and of much import
ance, is the produce of the farm during
the year endiug June 1, IsTO. This in
cludes the number of biisheU of s-pring
mi l winter wheat, of rye, Indian corn,
oats, barit-y and buckwheat, pwunds of
rice and tobacco, ba;es of cotton, esti
mate 45U pounds to tin; bale ; 1 oun ls of
woo!, bushels ot peas and leaiis, and of
Irish and .sweet potatoes. In addition,
the products of the 01 chard mu-t bc
giren in dollars, the number of gallons of
wine produced, an
lars of the produce of market gardens.
In the matter of dairy product-, butter
and cheese mu-t be recorded hi pound--,
and milk sold in gallon.-. Hay must lie
given in tons, and of seed clover and
grass in bushels. Of the other produc
tions of a like nature, hops must le re
p.nted in pounds, hemp in tons, flax in
pounds, flaxseed in bushels, and silk co
coons in pounds. Sugar comes under a
separate sub-hea l, and mu-t be reported
so as to ive that manufactured from
maple by pound-., and Unit frouic tiie by
hug -heads of one thou -and pounds each.
Mlasses is to be reported by gallons.
The Products of bees, comprising wax
and honey, must be stated by pounds.
Forest products, value of home manu
factuies, value of animals -slaughtered
or sold for slaughter it is necessary tore
port in dullars. After all these inquiries"
have been answered, the estimated value
of all farm production, including letter
mcnts and additions to stock, must I c
given in dollars. For the purpose of
enabling the reader to clearly un Jcr.st.--.nd
how the third schedide is to be filled up,
we .-ubjoin the following table. It us
suppose that the production of the farm
for the tear was of rve -4) bushels, of

Next in importance to that of agricul
ture are cur industrial products, and to
these are devoted the fourth schedule.
As with the ot iier the inquiries refer otoy
to productions during tlie year ending
duee 1, ISTO. To begin with, the name
of the corporation, company or individ
ual producing the value of i",oq annually
is required, and after that the name of
business, manufacture or produce, and
the capital, whether real or persona! or
Loth, invested in ihe business. Fn ler
the head, of "Motive Bower" it is de
su ed to know bat kind of power is 11-ed,
whether steam, water, wind, hor.-e or
hand, and if sieaui or water the number
of horse po.ver. If machines are used
tlicir name or description and the num
ber in operation are necessary. To as
certain the extent, cost -and amount of
labor of such business inquiry will 1-e
made of the average ii imU-r of bauds
employed, including inale.-above 1 n years,
Tcu.-.tit's above I' years and ci.iidren and
youth ; also the total amount paid in wa

months in active operation, reducing part
time to fed time To a-eetiain the ma
terial. u-vd in the business, whatever it
may l e, an i including miil supplies and
fuel, tl.e kinds and quantities and their
values, omitting fractions of a dollar,
must Ik stated. There rem ins, then,
nothing more on shcdule four to answer
but. tiie inquiry regarding production, in
cluding u.i joubing and repairing, which
mu-t be reported in kinds and qualities
and in value, omitting fractions of a dol

SOtTAI. STATU S.
Seoudu'e o is devoted to social states,
and is of great importance as showing the
financial, moral an J intellectual prog. ess
.of the "u-ople. It begins by inquiring
I of the valuation of real and personal
! estate, how thev are valued and iheir
true valuation. Next inquiry is made of
the public debt, including tlie county
1 debt, for which bonds have been issued,
! all other county debts, town, city, town
ship, parish, (civil 1 or borough debt, for
which bonds have been issued, and ad
j other town, city, township, parish (civil)

and number of volumes mu-t be stated.
These include State libraries, town or

requested to he honest for once in their
lives and answer thi inquiry truthfully.
Under the head of wages, which, front
the seventh inqiry, it must be .stated
what are the average wages to
farm hands per month, hired by the

wings us to I 'iattsmouth, Neb., at the

city of some thirty five hundred inhabi

whose very base winds the Mis-omi,

"bottom lands" to the. ea-t, some five
mile-, is soon Fit cine Junction, at the
base almost of the eastern biuits, where,

snows raise the .Missouri ami 1 'laite, the
waters stretch at times f.om blu'l to b!u!l".

mud and sand on the lands over which
they inn, making a soil of extreme lich
ness, and row but occasionally flooded,
as year by year they are ri Ing higher
an I higher, and the most luxuriant crops
of grass are growing up. n th ;r, v here
hundreds of cattle n-am, growing bit
upon the jLhuess of their own favorite

The great event of the day upon which
our visit was paid to this "sm iit town
was the grand opening ball and banquet,
given to some five hundred invited gtte-ts
by the Messrs. Iligby, formerly of De

hotel, the ""Brooks Ilou-o." Gue-ts
were conveyed by the B. & M., and C

enterprise. By the evening of the re
cep ion day, all the hotels and 11 : a :iy pri

with invited guests from iiiny of the
towns along the lines of road, and many
from a distance, ainong whom was the

The pro.-iccts now are tint we are
soon to h tve a verv great. In liait pow
wow at Washington. Several noble red
men are already at
.1 : . .1
whom we notice tlie name of Snorted
. ' .
Tail, or, after the style of white men who
go to Washington, Hou."Spotted
Tail. He is accompanied by" several
other noble red men who have won re
nown by butchering our frontier settlers.
They are strutting about Washington in
fancy bree. h-clouts, and armed with re
volvers of tho best pattern. Hon. Bed
Cloud, chief of the Sioux, accompanied
by twenty "warriors," is also on his way
to Washington. As these "warriors"
have achieved their notoriety by bloody
deeds, it is fair to presume that they
have done their share of scalping and
murdering defenseless settlers, ami that
they have on Indian festive occasions
adorned themselves with their scalps
I'o-sibly they wiil come into the presence
of the "Great Father" in those i Jentie il
adornments. Those scalps dangling at
their belts would show that great in.ius
tiee has been done to the Iiuians; f.ir,
unless they had in omf way been an
noyed, they never would have scalped
white settlers, and worn their scalps as
ornaments. ..Tlie pistols, guns and knives
that these poor innocent red men carry
in the streets of Washington are also in
dicative of" injustice to them; for, why
sh'oild the poor Indians otherwise go
armed in the streets of our capital? No
other plenipotentiaries are obliged to go
armed in Washington; this conclusively
shows that the Indian has been treated
with cross injustice by our Government.
The coming pow-wow inii-t light all
these matters. They must be talked
over bv the Great Father. Hon. Spotted
Tail and Hon. Bed Clou 1, and the other
Hon. Indians who are a part of this
"I,o" delegation. If pa-t precedents
should bt; followed, the Great Fat her will
give the noble red men more guns, more
pistols and more knives, on condition
that they will butcher no more white
peo le on the borders, providing the
white people do not go near the borders.
VI If It tll.l.'O tl-AkIt Ulll
lies of arms and
ammunition, the Hon. Indians will re
turn to tlie scenes of their hunting,
their scalping, and their outrages
upon white women, the wives
aod (lav.-liters of the settlers. This
mode of setiling the I ndiauqucstinn may
not sent! a thrill of satisfaction through
the hearts of the settlers on the Indian
borders; but what of that ? They have
only to be just to the poor red man. and
send him presents, and allow him to steal
their caltie and horses, and when be
comes along set the lesl in the house be
fore hi 111. He i- ea-ily satisfied- All he
wants is what a sett'er ha- ; he only takes
scalps when a man's tit her possessions
sue in-u l'i -ie.it to"s,u,iy h m. It is we I,
then, for th? sett'ers to understand that
the poor Indian may sometimes be per
suad'-d to foiego 1 he scalps :n a whole
finiily. by simply turning over to him
the entire property, real an 1 oersonal.
How much more peaceable I his i -than to
go and kill the poor red man. It amounts
to a comfortable living 'for the "nobie
savage," not being obliged to work he
111! lit-.' -Tlji iiv, 11 ru j'j
to time to reflect on thogoodni
ot tl.e Great ."-pint 111 thus matting the
white nwio so u-ei'-J for his support. By
a long course of such tieatmeur of the
red men of our Western Territories, they
would come to Ie as peaceable as are the
Indians in Canada. Our white st-nlers
might hope that .-uch chiefs as the Hon.
Spot al Tail and Hon. Red Cloud wou.d
consent to matrimonial alliances between
their Focahoiitascs and our Captain
Smiths on the borders, who are always
on the point of having, thei
scalped, if not broken, by the Indi 111
'"braves." How much more comfortable
it would be tit marry 1 'riiicc.-s Spotted
Tail than to be scalped by the lion.
Spotted Tail. This point will no doubt
lie discussed at the coming po.v-wow in
Wa-hingtoii, and may be made a pow
erful element in the peaceable settle
ment of all our Indian diificulf ies.
The poor, innocent red men scalp each
other when there are no white settlers to
scalp. How can they do such things on
the principles of 1 he Indian Fence Com
mission? Vet they do, and the Feace
Commission never lecture them on tlie
error of their ways. They sen 1 no mis
sionaries among them in time of Indian
wars, to remind them that they an: the
I toor Indians who "see Go.l in lite cloud
and hear Him in the wind," and they al
low them to butcher each other to ex
termination without going among them
from their head quarters in the Mat, or
sen j'.ug them -o much as a tract or a
picture id William iVnii under the big
elm. But let a white ,-ettle:-, or a miner,
or Gen. Sheridan send one of them to the
happy hunting-grounds, and the Fence
Commission are immedl.teiy 10 a higli
pesstiie state of work. Lee? ues, per
ambulating the Jv.istcrn and Middle
States, dwell on tlie injustice of the
white lu.tn to the poor red i:.::ti. Solemn
essays are circulated, l;tudit-.u the itooiLty
t.if tlie Indians, an 1 the cruel wrong th it
has been done to them i.i tbiving tliui
from th! soil. This, list.- till a family or
a whole neighborhood are ma-.-acrt e l by
these (iod-seeiiig iii the-wind demons.
If the Commission say anything at all, it
is that the poor Indian has been bad y
used, a id the-e things are. after a I. no
more than white peoj.'e de-vrve. This
is, substatirial'y, our "indian policy" as
cariied out, and to it may be attributed
the horrible Indian massacres which
have di-graced our Government and si ill
disgiat-e it. And now, liie-o savage-
some of them recking with the b;oo-d ot'
innocent woiiicu and el;'.! ben are to be
ushered in'o the presence of our Chief
.Magistrate to t.i.tain a new lease for the
