I S A A C 1 L ES. Chairman.
Mr. Jolin Teesditle, eJitor of the
Omah i Jirpulltcait, has written a letter
to his paper, tlatcl at Mt. Pleasant,
Iowa. He has been riding on the rail
roa.l, has had time to reflect upon uiat
t .r? and things in general, and espceia'ly
ii 1 Mm the question of bridges. He eon-t-ladc.-s,
beyond a doubt, that there should
in d be any bridge across the Missour
river at Platt-miouth, hence he interviews
a brahman on the Ii. & M. R. K. and
learns that the said brakesman has not
been officially informed of the intention
f the company to erect said bridge.
Here is what Mr. John Teesdale, editor
of the Omaha Republicans says of the
Lui lsre matter :
, ' Speaking of the bridge reminds me
t sty, that a few of those rumors about
the easy erection of a bridge at Platts
motitli, stand in great need of Teritica
ti.m. A gentleman in the interest of
the B. & M. It. Jt., one who is thor
oughly ported about its business, in
ti'iitied me that there is no intention to
build a bridge this season, at least no
sich intention has been avowed; no
M'umlins havj been taken, and no
hands have been employed to get out
.-tone f.r the work. The "7mi," at
Plattsuioulh, has been misinformed."
We do not know what "gentleman in
the interest of the B. & M. 11. K." has
t ild Mr. Toesdalc any such story as the
above ; but if Mr. Tcasdale will come to
Piattsuiouth he can readily ascertain
whi ther any '"hands have been cm
ployed to get out rock for the work."
He can sec one hundred of them at
work any day he will visit our city.
The Herald has not been "misin
Torcied" in regard to this matter, but it
is .Mr. John Teesdale, .editor of the
'lyviiA RcpxiUican, who has not only
!'-on misinformed, but who has evidently
interviewed a "willing witness." The
Mkuald Las never intimated, let alone
m i le the assertion, that a bridge would
he . oniplctcd at this place ''this season ;"
I ut we, do say that the work for a bridge
is ,ong prosecuted at the present time,
;md that we can, at this moment of
writing, see from our desk a large tbrec
T hands at work "getting out f-tone,"
Mr. Teesdale and his informant to the
''nrrary notwithstanding. Mr. Teas
hi!e should know, if he does not, that
'he IIlrald is not easily "misinformed"
a1 "ut railroad matters in this locality,
'id the Ht'.RALD doe know that sound-
"j have Leen- viade. and that ROCK
BOTTOM exist! a'l the way across the
river, and that forty feet is the deepe.-t
pli -e where rock is found, and one hua-i'-f-l
hands are at work getting out stone,
in J that these facts do not "stand in
--ed of veiiilcation" probably not so
Jfcu.-h. as some other bridge stories we
Diieht mention. Will Mr. John Tees
ile and his informant "in the interest
of the ii. & M. Co." take notice and
govern themselves accordingly ?
Wc have often noticed that where a
man or a party took a position that was
false and untenable, they generally en
deavor to make up in vituperation and
bold assertions what they lack in argu
ment and fact. Nearly every Democratic
journal in the country ha3 expressed its
preference for the French in the present
war between France and Germany, and
when they are cornered in the arguiaent
(as they must be in this case) their de
fence is substantially that made by Na'-by
when he paid "d n a nigger, any
how." these democratic journals
imitate their great confederate cross
roads leader, and in effect say "d n the
Dutch, anyhow." They may not use
this exact language at all times, anymore
than did their orators recently use the
exact language which Nasby puts into
their mouths ; but the fact remains the
same that is the substance of all their
speeches and writings. Here, for ex
ample, is the manner in which one of
theleadini Democratic papers speaks of
the meetings being held by our (ierman
citizens for the purpose of expressing
sympathy with their Fatherland, as did
Americans in foreign countries during
the rebellion here :
"It mav be added that these German
meetings to 'express sympathy with the
Prussians' arc exhibitions of very cheap
nnt rintism worthr. however, of the de
scendants of the hireling Hessians who
fought against American independence
Is it just is it manly to thus speak of
a class of men in this country who do us
and our country no harm in expressing
a preference between their native country
and its enemies? Would an American
be worthy of the name did he not sym
pathise with his own country in a similar
struggle, even it he were in some nr
eign land? No, that is not it. The nat
ural inclinations of the present Demo
cratic leaders cause them to say, in sub
stance, "d n the Dutch." There is
where the rub is. They dislike the Oer
mans of this country, and they cannot
but show their dislike. Their preference
is for the French monarch in the present
struggle, and they cannot but show their
A MODEL I I. AT FORM.
For the benefit of our Democratic
readers and the amusement of our Re
publican readers, we copy the following
platform adopted by the Iowa Demo
cratic State Convention. The Conven
tion was evidently bent on saying some
thing, and was just as evidently afraid of
saying the wrong thing. 1 hey don t say
nigger" a single tune, but it must not
be supposed the "platform is not purely
Democratic, for all that. hey don t
abuse the administration at all, yet the
"iilatform" was framed by simon pure
Democrats". The on y thing that is emi
nently Democratic is the last resolve. We
clip it as a pattern tor tlie Nebraska
Democratic Convention to meet in this
city on the Cth of September :
Resohcd That the present interns.1
revenue svstem of the United States is
unendurable in its oppressive exactions ;
that to impose burdens on one ela-sof citi
zens, or upon one branch of industry to
build up another, or to support an a:my
of office holders to enforce their collec
tions is an abuse of the taxing power,
and that we arc in favor of the collection
of nil taxes through the State Govern
ment. , ,
Resolved, That we are opposed to the
present unjust, unequal and oppressive
tariff system, and in favor of one, which,
w hile adapted to the purpose of raising
the necessary revenue to provide lor the
liquidation of the National debt, and
meet the expenses of an economical ad
ministration, will not oppress labor, and
build up monopolies.
Resohcd, That we are in favor of such
disposition of our public lands as will se
cure their occupation by actual settlers,
and prevent their absorption by mammoth
Resolved, That we assert the right of
the people by legislative enactment to
regulate and control all monied corpora
tions, unon which extraordinary rights
are conferred by charter.
Resolved, That we are opposed to any
attempt to abridge the most full and Iree
cnioyment of civil and religious liberty.
'Resolved, That we cordially invite the
electors of Iowa to co-operate with us in
the support of the principles herein
.A HEAVY STORM.
The St. Joseph Union gives the fol
lowing account of damages done by a
heavy storm which visited that locality
on Sunday, the 7th inst :
Dr. Howard's dwelling on Eighth
street, sustained the los of part of the
roof. A stable upon Main street was
blown down and porches in various parts
of the city were torn from the buildings.
Tlie chimney of the poor .house was
blown down. The south side of Mr.
Hay's fence on Sixth street was over
turned. Trees were uprooted and over
thrown in various parts of the city, and
benches were broken and scattered
aliout the streets and yards promiscu
ously. Fruit trees suffered severely,
many of them bcinsr torn asunder by the
gale. Jenkins bill posting board was
pretty well demolished; several signs
were blown from buildings, among which
was the larce one upon Uailey Si W ight
man's warehouse and Kahn's store, on
Market Square. Holdori's show case
was knocked into atoms ; windows were
smashed without di.-critnination. Many
of the dwellings were rocked upon their
foundations, and the wonder is that
some of them were not overturned.
The benefit to the growing crops was
much greater than the damage done to
them. Corn was blown do-vn considera
bly where it was exposed to the full force
of the storm; but as it is so nearly ma
tured, it did not suffer greatly. Lpou the
whole, all ar very thankful for the rain,
and among the number those whose sis
terns were without water.
The valuable pine forests of New
Jersey are likely, at no distaut day, to be
entirely destroyed. Every summer fires
break but, cr are maliciously started in
the swamps, and hundreds of thousands
of dollars are lost before they can be
smothered. One of these fires is raging
now in Ocean county, where one owner
has in three days lost $60,000 worth of
Tlie Brltltce Mt PIntlsmontli.
Our friend of the Herald, at Platts
mouth, insists that one hundred men are
engaged in getting out stone for the
bridge at that place; that soundincrs
have been taken, and that 40 feet is the
depth to a rock foundation. He thinks
that our informant to the contrary, must
have been some supernumerary on the
U. fc M. Road. If he knew who our
informant was, he would probably admit
that he ought to know something about
the matter, and ought to be ablu to speak
Ly t he book.
The Herald does not expect that the
bridge will be completed this year. Nor
do wc, in view of the facts communica
ted. Our cotemporary may be assured
that we have no objection whatever to
the erection of a bridge there or at any
other point. Unviha Republican.
The Republican thinks 'if we knew
who its informant was we would proba
bly admit that he ought to know some
thing about the bridge matter here.
That may be all very true, yet it makes
no difference in the facts which wc have
stated. As to the soundings we have
the word of the engineer who had charge
of the work ; and in regard to the work
being done we only ak the editor of the
Republican to come and see for himself.
And it may be that Mr. Teesdale's in
formant did not care to tell him all he
knew in regard to railroad matters here,
if he was a person "who ought to be
able to speak by the book." It is often
the case that railroad men give equivocal
and evasive answers in regard to such
matters, and it may be that such was the
case m this instance. iJr. leesiaie
should not assume that he has reliable
negative information simply because he
fails to get that which is affirmative.
Man Shot en tlie I'rmlrle
From the Lincoln Statesman.
On -Sunday. July 31, Fred. Sawyer
and Theo. Johnson, both engaged at the
salt works, went to Ensign & Lowe's
livery stable and hired a team, with the
intention, as they stated, of hunting up
homesteads in the llue river country.
On Monday they took breakfast at a
farm house at Reaver Crossing, in York
county, an-i prtxeided on their way. In
the afternoon Sawyer was seen passing
the farm-house where they breakfasted
in the morning, alone. He reached Lin
coin Tuesday evening, the 9th, Upon
being questioned as to the whereabouts
of his companion he told the proprietors
of the stable that he "left him out on his
homestead in Hamilton county." Aye,
verily, and he did leave him there, too.
He left his remains there in the hope
that the prowling and hungry wolves
would destroy every vestige of his body.
They did not The suspicion of the
neighbors' was excited and it con
tinued to increase, when they went
out in search of Johnson. They found
him seme sixteen miles west of Heaver
Crossing by the side of the old Fort
Kearney and Nebraska City wagon road,
with seven bullet holes in his body.
The wolves hid made a beginning upon
his remains and eaten a portion of one
of his thinhs. It is supposed that lie
had been dead since the first day of Au
gust. The sheriff of Hamilton county
came to this place yesterday morning,
and made known the facts to sheriff
Sam. McClay, who, knowing Sawyer to
lie at work at the Salt wirks, procured a
horse nnd buggy and started after hini.
He met Sawyer a short distance this
side, and told him to "get in and rid?
over to town with him." He stepped
into the buggy without saying a word,
and when conducted up into a justice's
office did not even inquire what it was
for, but appeared perfectly indifferent to
all that was going on arouna mm. i nu
circumstantial evidence is strong against
him, and if guilty he -ought to suffer to
the fullest extent of the law. Johnson's
parents reside at Dixon, Illinois, and
were telegraphed yesterday. Johnson
was a young man of more than ordinary
intelligence and respected by all who
knew him ; he was 2:1 j-ears of age.
Yesterday afternoon, between three
and four o'clock a young man entered a
saloon opposite the Court House, and
drawing a knife, told the proprietor and
his wife to stand back for he proposed
to have what money there was in the
till. He proceeded to help himself to
the contents of the money drawer, which
fortunately happened to amount to but
$1.50. With this he made tracks for
the neighboring bluffs. An alarm was
raised, and several parties started in pur
suit. His pursuers gaining on him, he
drew his revolver, and told them that if
they didn't go back he would make day
light shine through "em ! Having no
arms, they ceased to pursue him, and he
disappeared in the "bluff deposts." He
is known in this city, and will doubtless
soon be arrested. It was an audacious
act, though its results were trifling; but
such scamps should not be laying loose
around town. C. B. Nonpareil.
If the news from the Indian country
be true, Red Cloud is working in earnest,

n the same report it is aneounced that
game is scarce "and the Indians will
have to be fed bv the Government, or
steal." If the Govenimant doesof im
mediately feed these three- tribes of In
dians, tney will begin to "steal," and it
will be necessary to inaugurate an "In
dian war," which will make business and
pluuder for the indian "ring." Indian
affair have been apparently quiet since
Red Cloud returned to his tribes from his
visit to Washington, and the Indian
swindlers are becoming impatient for an
other steal. If Hon. Red Cloud wants
to preserve peace he had better lit his
communications with the Government be
as direct as possible. The telegram has
the apiearanee of being preliminary to
an Indian ring war of the first magni

The German steamship Union arrived
at New York on Saturday, on her last
passage from Rrenicn. Ifhen the ves
sel had left the latter port war had been
declared, and in ordertoavoid the French
cruisers she did not touch at Southamp
ton. After leaving Rremen, the captain
of the Union painted a red stripe around
the smokestack, to imitate Hllliams &
Guion's vessels, and having thus gotun
der false colors, he made a safe passage.

The King of Prussia has issue! a proc
lamation at St. Aval, in which he de
clares iniiiti'ry conscription abolished in
all the French territory occupies! by Ger
man troops; ho a!.-o announces that
though the Fiench Government should
persist in forcing the exclusion of Ger
mans from France, no measures of re'a
tion will bo adopted by him, as it would
be unfair to punish men for belonging to
a country cursed with a Bonaparte for a
sovereign; hence Frenchmen in Germany
need not be uneasy. They shall, in com
nion with all mankind, be convinced that
Germany moves at the head of civiliza
tion. London, August 13.
Reports from Carlruhe, this morning,
announce the capitulation of Strasbourg
after a short bombardment. Sharp fight
ing took place in .'ior:t of Metz yester
day. A considerable force of Prussians
advau3cd into the envirens of the city,
as a reconnoitcring party, to discover
whether the reports of the town having
been evacuated by the French were true.
They were met by a sharp fire from the
batteries and forced to retire. Rein
forcements for French, fcoth in men and
stores, are constantly and rapidly arriv
ing. It would appear that the Prussian
advance met a decided check at this
point, and a great battle cannot now
much longer be delayed.
