""" JEW fESStS IS SEW YORK,
In the taking of the census in New
York the work was done by wards, in
which mntiner it wa3 ascertained that
Democratic lei-oi fcr. were casting more
votes than there v.ero inhabitants in
some of the ward?. Mayor Hall has
canned a change to be luade in the bonn
(iarie rf the wards, so as to again per
petrate the repeating business. In order
to -I:ow to the world the enormity of the
election frauds in New York, and to
come as noar as possible to securing a
fiiir xotr-, Prer-idcnt Grant has ordered
a new census of the city to be taken in
accordance with the new boundaries.
The honest pcoj.le of the nation will be
plad to know that President Grant has
fletcrmined to do all in his power to
break up tbo rictintJo fronds.
WOT. PI TI.EK .HI THE Br.F.TS.
Gor. Bailer has addressed letters to
Col. K. W. Furnas, of Crownviile, and
Kev. J. p. Maxfield, of thb city, re-
nuostin; their resignation as members of
the Hoard of Regents of the State Uni
vcrsity, and both these gentlemen have
declined a compliance with ihc request.
The Gov. in his letters, says the educa
tior.al interests of the State demands the
chanzes. but cives no definite reasons
why the interests of the State require
the rr-.-iirnation of the.se gentlemen.
We are completely in the dark, as the
public generally are, in regard to the
iatt", V.'c doubt not the Governor
will, in due season, jrive his reavons for
this demand, and the public will then be
able to make up an opinion as to who
i; right and who is wrong. In the
meantime we do not feel like either cen
suring or endorsing the act of the Gov,
in asking these resignations. If his
reasons are good we doubt not the public
will uphold him in the request ; if tlies'
are not good the public will condem him
ir making the request. Time will tell
we await the reasons.
'The Phttsinouth IWahl says we
''falsehood," in saying the Republican
ticket w.is beiten in Cass because "th
tot ri Republicanism was support of J.
M. Th aver. And in the same article
thecdit-jr says "tArre out of five dele
gates were selected by the friends of
Gov. .Saunders." What more natural
th.iti that the ticket should be
beaten if three ont of fire sup
ported Saunders instead of Thayer.
V.V think tiiis shows clearly our tirst as-!--
vtio:i the regular ticket was beaten,
that is suro. Under the new dodge of
uniting iemoTatie and Republican
votes, is it not much Letter to beat
-iuudi-rs mow nml trade vith Democrats,
t:::i!i to c-'.oi-t tlr.vo out five that cannot
he tamjiercil with."
Tlio above, from the Fremont Tnbune,
is :rt what had reason to expect
irv.ii that usually candid journal. That
p:per made the statement that the regu
lar ticket was defeated in this county
because, as it asseited "a support of
(rci:. Thayer was madj the test of Re
''ih'.i..uiiisi:i." Noothcr meaning could
l e attached to this thaa that the oppo
nents .f Gen. Thaj'er had defeated the
On behaf of the friends
ycr, as well as on account of
ti.- po-it;on in wnicu it placeU many
his c !;ionc ::ts, we snuarely denied
this assertion of the Tribune, and called
u; on it to correct the sta'xment. The
aliove is the manricrin which it makes
the orrccti !!. We did say that three
out of the live men on the regular ticket
v.vre selected by the friends of Gov.
Saunders, hu'. we did not say nor inti
mate that these thiee men" were at all
distasteful to the friends of Gen. Thayer.
As wo said before, and as the Tribune
well ku'jws the tlo'.tion of Gen. Thayer
ir.ix tint i i i'tsue in our county election, !
and it is exceedingly unjust to the Re
publicans who did not support the regu
lar ticket, as well as to those who did
sapport it t3 publish to the world that
the Senatorial question was the cause of
the defeat of the ticket. In regard to
the cvcit fling contained in the above
extract at the friends of General
Thayer in this county, wherein it
is intimated that ihey voted
against the regular ticket because three
ofthc men were selected by friends of
Gov. Saunders, we have only to say
that no ono knows better than J. Newt.
IIa3's. editor of the Tribune, that there
is not a shadow of truth in this insinua
tion ; and if the enemies of Gen. Thayer
are so far gone for something to say
against him and his supporters as to re
sort to that kind of effort to make capi
tal against him, we are only the ware
convinced that Gen. Thayer is the
proper man to send to the United States
senate, in oiuer, However, that no
further capital maybe attempted in this
direction, and that no unwitting peron
be deceived by these baseless insinua
lions, we win nere assert tnat every
prominent friend of Gen. Thayer
in Cass county and every one
T . . r
prominent or not prominent, so iar as
we know supported and voted for the
Republican ticket, as did many of the
friends of Gov. Saunders. They did
this not because the ticket was composed
of friends of either candidate, but be
cause they believed the nominees were
proper men, and because they believed
in maintaining the Republican organi
zation and earn ing cat the great prin
The Trunk Railroad.
The Brownville Adccrtiser, replying to
objections raised to the Trunk Road, by
the Lincoln Jaurnal, says :
"The facts are that Col. Moulton, now
Chief Engineer of the Omaha and
Southwestern, Railroad Company, made
a preliminary survey of the Trunk line,
from Rulo to Omaha, about a year ago,
and reports but a fraction over seven
miles of the whole route bluffs, and that
can be handled with picks and spades.
The balance of the road is bottom land,
level grade, and not a foot of which
overflows. The estimate of Col. Moul
ton ibr grading does not exceed six
thousand dollars per mile."
There is no longer any doubt in regard
to the practicability of a route along the
west bank of the river, and there is no
longer any doubt in the minds of busi
ness and financial men that thi3 line
would do a heavier business than' any
other line in the west. The C. 1. & St.
Joe road receives fully two-third3 of its
business from Nebraska. What, then,
would be the business of a road running
directly through the rich counties and
cities of the State which border on the
west Lank of the river.

Cheap Freight Tariff.
"The freight tariff from Council Uluffs
to Lincoln is twenty-five per cent, less via
Omaha and the -Southwestern Railroad
than via Plattsmouth. This is an item
of considerable importance to merchauts
in that city, who have freight to ship to
the capital. Passengers also save five
hours in time and two dollars in money
by this route. This is the route to Lin
coln, and the rates of travel and freight
confirm our assertion."
We clip the above item from the edito
rial columns of the Omaha Republican,
and ask our friends of the B. & M. Co.
what is the meaning of it? Is it a fact
that freights are "twenty-five per cent,
less via the Omaha and Southwestern"
than via the B. & M. ? We are unable
to comprehend the fact, if fact it is?
It is no farther to Lincoln from Council
Bluffs via Plattsmouth than via Omaha
Southwestern. Freights via Piatts
mouth pass over the U. & M. the entire
distance from Council Bluffs to Lincoln,
while by the Omaha route there are two
rivers to ferry and three separate lines of
road to pass over. The statement that
five hours in time and $2 in money are
saved needs some explanation, also.
OiiHus or ArbriuLa,
We have been waiting, waiting, wait
ing, for lo, these many weeks for the
completion of the census returns of the
State. We believe that there is not a
town, city or county in the whole coun
try that has not finished its work. But,
for some reason, it reems impossible for
the marshal to round up his figures.
And, of all counties in the State, that
Lancaster, the Capital county, shouldibe
the last, is a most unaccountable fact
We learn that the marshal has written
five times, cubing for the figures, but
thus far his calls have been utterly vain.
Cannot the press of Lincoln bring a
power to bear that will send down these
figures? It is discreditable to the State
that there should Lo such persistent de
A I'liiln Showing-.
In answer to the charge that three or
four hundred Democrats voted for the
regular Republican ticket, in this county,
and thas secured its election, the Platts
mouth Herald asks if the chagrin is oc
casioned by a regret that these men did
not vote for and elect, the Democratic
ticket? If so, how far will this chagrin
go to prove the Republicanism of those
But, the 1 If raid goes on to show, as
we have already done, that the vote for
our Legislative ticket was also given for
the Republican State ticket : Jamc

votes, just the vote of the 1 haver an
Saunders ticket combined the latter re
ceiving 450 voles, and the former 1.0f4.
So the purchase, if made, included the
whole ticket. Lut this exhibit ot th
vote shows the utter fabity of the charge
of a purchased vote, and shows that the
vote for the Republican Legislative
ticket was a square vote for Republican
ism as against I )emocracy. Ueyiublican

No blister draws sharper than the in

industrv with its film, as a llv is bound

million seeds. Every leaf is an awl,
every branch a spear, and plant like a
platoon of bayonets, and a field of them
like an armed host. The whole plant is
a torment and vegetable curse. And

liquid in a Fauccr, when a gentlemen en
tered tho shop with a little dog. The
chloroform was placed on the ground to
be out of the way, and presently the do(
was discovered lying by the side of the
saucer, unconscious, and annarentlv
dead. After a time, however, while the
stranger was mourning over the loss of
his pet, the dog moved his limbs and
gradually regained consiou?ncss. 31 r.

made a discovery, and after having ad

with the same result, was confirmed in
his belief. lie went to Kdenburg tore
lute his story to some medical men, and
at the suggestion of a friend, called up
on l'ro feasor J ames . iMiupson. After
that interview bimpson tried a number
