The wedding of Mr. Wendell Phillips
many years ago, had about it a touch of
rouiace. The ladjr who is now his wife
was an abohtionest and an invalid., llav
ing a fortune in her own right, she
thought of devoting it to emancipation
but knowing how money left in that way
is likely to be waited, she deemed it best
to transfer it to an individual in whom
she had entire faith. She had been for
some time a sincere admirer ot the uis- j
tinguished orator, and had reason to be
lieve that he had an affection for her.
Thinking her end was drawing nigh, she
sent for Mr. Phillips, an J after unfolding
her plan, told him the best thing to
do under the circumstances was for them
to be married ; that he would then have
a right to her property, and could de
vote it to the cause they both so earn
estly loved. He was much touched by
her candor and generosity, and in a few
days they were married. That was twen
ty years ago, and Mrs. PhiJips. though
very delicate, i still living, and bids fair
for years to come. The pair are devo
tedly attached to each other; and what
seems to have been merely a business af
fair has produced all the happiness of
the most romautic and poetic marriage.
He was wealthy before his union, and
since then his own and his wife's means
have been liberally expended in the cause
of humanity and freedom. Apart from
his remarkable genius, Mr. Phillips is a
man of irreproachable habits, living and
acting up to an ideal standard as nearly,
perhaps, as is possible for a man.

This village, like all others of great
expectations and what WesUrn hamlet
is without them? is called a city. Its
name is more significant than the classic
and poetical cognomens of which so
many of our towns are now beginning to
be ashamed; for the name describes the
position of the place, which is just south
of the River Platte, and at its mouth.
The population, by my guess, is 2,500.
The Platte is a stream broader, and I
think longer, than the Ohio, but so
shallow that the steamboat captain
whose vessel could make its passage
even in heavy dew, despaired of forcing
his wav ud the Platte. ISoth its names
denote shallowness, namely,- the French
name, Platte, which also commemorates
the pioneer explorers who came from
France, and the Indian name, Nebraska
which is compounded of Ne, rtVcr,and

Having spent several weeks in Ne
braska, and traversed several hundred
miles of its inteiior, as well as ' inter
viewed" many of its most intelligent
men and women, I should like to say
more about it than my leisure will now
The most noticeable feature in the Ne
braska of to-day is the rush of immi
grants to its lands both nurth and south
of the Platte but especially to the
south, whera cattle can live easily all
winter without shelter. On every train,
in stages, but especially in white covered
wagons, they come. Far back from the
river I met a colony of twenty-five Hun
garians, mostly on foot, with outland
ish chests in wagons. The men had
runs and were able to kill game enough
for food. No need of arms for defense. J
Only two men, the Governor tells me,
have been killed by Indians this season ;
and these far from the lands now for
sale by the Platt-mouth Railroad Com
I have found the railroad lands also
more saleable than others, because buy
ers have a credit of ten jears, if they
wish it. The railroad sellers remember
the sage remark of Buike in 1782, that
a government is unwise if it charge set
tlers much for land. So doing, it takes
away te capital which a man needs to
improve bis land money which, so em
ployed, would soon give the government
something considerable to tax. So the
Railroad Company, in granting long
credit, purpose to Jet the sponge fill; be
fore they squeeze it.
I was last week in Lincoln at the land
sales. They were more successful than
had been hoped. Ihey yielded 6,UOO
for a penitentiary. Poor city lots sold
for more than good ones last year,
though the trices then secured were
fabulous. In one day $16,000 worth of
railroad land was bought, and the sales
of that sort for tho month of May
amounted to almost $400,000.
Part of these sales were in Iowa but
I was astonished to learn that Nebra3
kau prices ruled higher than in the older
State. I think of Nebraska a an infant
of days; but when I find that its thirty
two counties have each, on an average,
over one thousand school children ; that
its school fund is proportionately more
than ten times as large as that ot Ohio,
and that its university fund is as much
larger, I cannot but look on this youngest
anio? g our sister States as tbe prophetic
child who was to he born an nunarea
Still "there temaineth yet much land
to be possessed. ' ' Nebraska about the
nrpa of England and Scotland combined
has now a territory larger than all
Ohio, where he that will may occupy a
nnnrter of a souare mile, ana never pay
tor it more than eighteen dollars. Half
stir, haif solitude, this State reminds me
sometimes of Milton's lion, that at the
creation appeared rising out of the earth
and pawing to get free his hinder parts
sometimes ot the monsters inavereau
about in old chroniclers as generated by
the slime of the Nile, whose forefeet be
gan cawing before their hindfect were
made, and while their litter ends re
mained nolliing more than raw mud.

has a fine combination and will undoubt

a train cannot iiossibly be thrown from
the track whether it be open or closed.

About twelve o'clock last night the
neighborhood of Thirteenth and Web

der 1 Hastening to the spot we ascer
tained that a fatal stabbing affair was
the cause of the fearful cry, and that the
victims were Col. Mulcahy, an attorney
at law of this city, Jerry McCheane, a
constable, and an expressman, and the
party committing the crime, Bernard
The facts concerning the bloody affair
are as follows:
Justice Graham had issued a warrant
for the arrest of Bernard Boren, who
has been but six days out of jail and is
known as a notorious character, and was
stopping at this time on Webster street,
south sidej between Twelfth and Thir
teenth, and Constable McCheane, in
company with Col. MuLahy and the ex
pressman (whose name we were unable
to learn) Lad gone to the house above
named to make his arrest, when the
fatal stabbing mentioned ensued. How
it began or what passed between the
parties, we were unable to ascertain.
On coming to the scene we found Col.
Mulachy lying on the ground, corner of
Thirteenth and Webster streets, Witfi a
number of citizens urouni him, and Ir
Mercer giving n-edical adviw. Two
wounds had ieen i flicted on his person,
both entering tbe left lung. At out a
hundred yards disiaut in front of the
house where the assault was mad-?, lay
constable Mel' h ,-ane with a cut in his left
temple, penetrating to the brain. Dr.
Denise was with him doing all in his
power to relieve his sufferings.
The expressman, whose wound was
through the hand, had gone to his home.
Doren, at that time had disappeared, but
shrewd detectives and policemen were al
ready on his track.
Both Mulachy and McCheane were in a
most critical condition, and the physicians
attending prononunoed their wounds fa
tal with a possibility of recovery but no
j probability whatever. Hope seemed to
