We don't like the I'eniocratic bosom
vet, and don' rroj'e to "go square into
it" until we have done all we can to purify
the '-bosom of the Republican p:irty
from "corrupt officials." When nil hope
ofdoinff that is gone, then we'll feck
some other "bosom." Omaha Tribune.
So you really do intend going "square
into the bosom of Democracy" so soon
as you discover you have com
pletely failed to dictate to the Republi
can party. It did not require a large
amount of discrnment to see that, hence
we predicted it some days ago. The
Tribune, in the above shadows forth its
real intentions that of doinjr all in it?
powerto break up the Republican party
in order that it may be considered a
high chief in the camp of the enemy.
Is it customary hi l'lattsmouth to
abue all new comers who take an inter
cut in local or tate matters, if they don't
happen to drink out of the fame flijh.
with old office holders? Omaha Trib
une. It is not "customary in Vlattsmouth"
to abuse any one, whether from the east
or from the west, so long as they act
the part of gentlemen, as the large num
ber of people arriving in our city every
day from the east can abundantly testify ;
but it is "customary," not only in l'latts
mouth, but elsewhere in the west, to
teach a lesson to braggarts and bullies
who hafe no more sense of decency than
to insult every man who differs from
their bigoted views and has the inde
pendence to say so. The Tribune has
remarked on one or two occasions that
we should not "whine" because it said
wc "lied." Will the Tribune doctor
please swallow a dose of his own medi
cine? Who is doing the "whining"
now ? We have in our possession a few
more homely truths which the Tribune
concern may not relish.
"THE MEAXTKT TIII5FO YET
II El It I OF."
"Alout the meanest thing jet beard
of in the Senatorial matter, is that a
minority of Republicans will unite with
Democrats and tha? elect a man whom
th Republicans do not want.
We say, out of Euch perfidy, and ask
that the names of such men as are guilty
be given to the public. Will the Adver
tiser, l'lattsmouth Herald, and Republi
can tell us who we shall swear at?"
Fremont Tribune. .
We have heretofore stated that we
had reason to believe the above men
tioned scheme was being worked up, and
the Tribune now calls on us to give
the "names" of the men. We were
inclined to not narrow the matter down
to any individuals, but the above pointed
inquiry of the Tribune made in a way
that shows that paper is really ignorant
of the fact that such a state of affairs
does exist, and showing also that it is
opposed to any such scheme almost
forces us to mentioning a fact which we
had never intended to have placed in
print. Wc stato it upon what we be
lieve to be the very best 'of authority,
and leave the Tribune and others to
judge for themselves. At the close of a
public meeting held at Folden's school
house, in this county, on the evening be
fore the election, Hon. Lawson Sheldon,
Senator elect on the People's ticket, who
has always acted with the Republican
party, said that he was ready "to vote
for any man, to beat Gen. Thayer.'' A
Republican- bystander asied him if that
statement was not too broad, and said
"suppose J. Sterling Morton should be
the man? 3Ir. Sheldon's answer was:
"Well, so be it.' Now, whether or no
Mr. Sheldon is ready to "combine with
the Democracy" which is declared by
the Tribun to be the "meanest thing
yet heard of," we leave for that paper
to decide for itself. We have, on as
many as four or five different occasions,
asked the Omaha Tribune to say whether
or no it was in favor of such combina
tion, and iu no instance has it dared to
answer our question. Wc are glad to
know that the Fremont Tribune is em
phatically opposed to such combination,
as we trust all good Republicans are
throughout the State. It matters not
i?ho the majority of the Republicans
may decide in favor of, we arc willing to
say "amen" to it ; but we are. opposed
to allowing Democrats to decide who
shall be the Republican candidate for U.
S. Senator. We believe that Hon. E.
II. Rogers, of Fremont, will be a candi
date before the Legislature for U. S.
Senator, and wc trust neither himself
nor his friends will endorse any such
mixing up of affairs as we have indicated
was in contemplation.
Xrmnba VjtJIejr and Trunk I. inc.
The State Jourttal, at Lincoln,
strives to convince Iirownville and
Omaha that the Nemaha Valley mad is
of moie consequence to them than the
Trunk Line. There are reasons very
obvious why Lincoln adopts this opin
ion, that will not be so clear tCKthe river
towns. So far as Omaha is concerned
she would be glad to see both lines con
structed ; always provided the cost to the
towns and counties is not greater than
the advantages reaped. It is barely
possible that such advantages may be
gained at too great a sacrifice. With
towns and counties, as with individuals,
it is often well to make haste slowly.
The patrimonies of States and counties
arc too frequently squandered, leaving
only a heritage: sf taxation grievous to be
Our convictron is that the Trunk line
will prove of the greatest advantage not
only to Omaha but to all the populous
towns- and counties of the river. It will

An Attempt to Hum the I.nnatlc
Aoyimii 1 lie Building: Daiunged
From the Lincoln Journal, 8th.
Last evening about half past four,
Elder Schamp" while riding pa-t the
Asylum on his way home, discovered
smoke escaping from the roof and upper
windows of the building, iu the north
Quite a number of painters were at
work in the basement and on the first
floor, and to them the alarm was given.
Upon rush ng up to thy place where the
smoke was issuing, it was found very
difficult to locate the tire, which was
burning between the roof and the ceihng
of the fourth story.
Finally one of thewoikmen, by break
ing several holes through the roof, dis
covered the place by the flames follow
ing his pick. The workmen, by almost
superhuman efforts, carrying water from
the well west of the building, succeeded
in subduing the flames, after an hour
and a half of hard work.
About 12 feet square of the joi.-ts and
rafters (which had a space of two feet
between, were charred and near y burned
through. The fire cviden ly originated
close to the eaves on the eat side of the
building, some '20 or 20 feet from the
No fire had been made in the building
for over two- weeks, and Mr. Ward
found the in.-ide of the Hue adjacent the
fire cold, though the outside had been
heated by the flames. A'furtl.er enar
ination made by breaking through the
plastering in the room below, developed
the undoubted origin of the fire. Along
the side of a stud leading directiy down
from the spot most badly charred, was a
large hardened stream o: tallow or sper
maceti, from a candle that was traced to
the joist joined to the studding above.
This stud formed a part of the paiti
tion inside of the French roof.
On the opposite side of the hall was a
cistern room that had not been lathed
and plastered and in the angle of a brace
and studding in this room were the mud
tracks of some one who had lately
climbed up to the space under the roof.
Undoubtedly some fiend incarnate had
gone up there, crawled away from the
aperture as far as possible, saturated the
wood work adjacent with kerosene, and
then set a lighted candle end upon the
joist, which, when it burned down to the
wood, fired the building. From this
candle the tallow came down the stud
ding as above described.
l'robably the fire causrht the wood be
fore the candle burned down and thus
the large amount of tallow on the side
of the joist is accounted for Had the
Gre broken out an hour or two later, the
building would have undoubtedly been

THE Ei-ECTIOS TESTERDAT.
A t hperinc IteMalt.
The telegraphic dispatches of jtlus
morning and yesterday give our readers
a pretty clear idea of the results in nearly
all the nineteen States in which elections
were held on Monday and Tuesday Iat.
The general result is quite as favorable
as could have been anticipated at this
juncture. The losses and gains in the
Congressional canvass are probably pretty
well balanced, and mny be somewhat ii
our favor. This is the important feature
of the election; and the decision is
creditable to the strength of the admin
istration, if present indications are not
New York attracted the lion's share
of interest, because of the effort, to stop
fraudulent voting. The effort seems to
have been crowned with brilliant success
in the city, lloflman's majority there
wa3 reduced from f.9,000 to 45,000.
l'robably a strict honest vote would re
duce it to 30,000. Rut, this will do for
a beginning. His majority in the State
is probably not over 30,000. The indi
cations are that by shameful supineness
the Republicans in the rural districts
have suffered the loss of a victory clearly
within their grasp. .It may be that the
"repeating" defeated in the city was
transferred to other portions of the State.
A Republican loss of four and a gain of
one in the Congressional delegation, is
claimed. Indications are favorable for a
Republican Legislature, which will pre
pare the way for other beneficial results.
Greeley is beaten by 1,000. The dis
trict gave Cox 2,00 tw o years since.
Later information announces a loss of
four Republican members in New York.
Illinois is next in interest as in popula
tion. The reports are 'conflicting, and
the actual state of the Congressional
delegation is not so dear. There is are-
tiorted loss of one. The State is largely
lepubliean and the Legislature is un
doubtedly safe, securing a United States
Senator in place of Yates. Farwell
beats Wentworth, it is said, about 5,000.
The former received the whole colored
vote and quite a large Democratic vote,
notwithstanding the support of Went
worth by the Times.'
New Jersey comes along booming,
making good the loss in New York, by a
Republican gain of two in her Congres
sional delegation, which will stand 4 Re
ptiblicans to 1 Democrat. In the-present
Congress it stands 2 -Republbans to 3
Democrats. The Legislature also is
Republican, making sure of ' tho Q S.
Senator. The Africans as well as the
Quakers voted this time. Good for the
Missouri is only partially heard from.
Brown, it is said, will have 30,000 ma
jority for Governor.
Massachusetts. J here she stands, as
usual, only a little more so ; despite the
efforts of the silver-tongued Wendell.
Michigan indicates no change. A
Republican majority large enough for all
practical purposes is recorded as usual.
Later news records the loss of one Re
publican member of Congress in Michi
Wisconsin. The Republicans lose a
member of Congress in the Milwaukee
district, but carry the State by the usual
Louisiana. Here the Remihli.-jns
claim a clean sweep and a large majority.
it tins report is correct, there is a Ke
publican gain of four members, as we had
but one out of five in the present delega
tion. " i
Marylcjvl is claimed for the Democracy
the whole delegation.
Alabama has cone for the Rewibli-
cans,. according to our reports. The
present delesation stands lour Demo
crats and two Republicans. If all are
now nepublicans, there is a gain ot two.
Minnesota gives a sound Republican
majority and a Republican gain of one in
the Congressional delegation.
Rhode Island is erect, sending two
Republicans to Congress, as usual.
Kansas is largely Republican, as she
is likely to be in all contingencies.
Delaware goes Democratic by a re
duced majority. .

A new light broke in upon the vision
of the astonished voting man. He ac
commodated himself to the situation ;
he left home, made his way to college,
graduated at the head of his class, stud
ied law, became Governor of the State
of New York, entered the Cabinet of
the President of the United States, and

A rromliliiK Cloy.
A certain Judge, 'while attending
court in a shire town, was passing along
a roal wnen a toy wasjust letting down
the bars to drive some cattle in.
His father stood in the door of his
house, on the opposite side of the road,
and seeing what his hopeful was doing,
"John, don't you drive them -cattle in
there ; I told you to put them in the
pasture behind the house."
The boy took no notice whatever of the
remonstrance, and his father repeated
the order in a louder tone, without the
least effect, and the third time gave posi
tive orders not to drive the cattle in
The son didn't dein to look up, and
disobeyed the narental injunction with a
coolness which positively shocked the
Judge, who looked at the culprit and
said, in a tone of official iTirnitv :
"Boy, don't you Jiear your father
speaking to you :
"Oh, y-a-aO replied the boy, look

A Silver Cradle.
The Mayoress of Chester (England),
Mrs. Dickson, ha,, in accordance with
an old custom, been presented with a
silver cradle, she having giren birth to a
boy during the mayoralty of her hus
band. The cradle was subscribed for by
the citizens. Mr. Dickson's is the first
mayoralty during which the old custom
has been observed at Chester. The tea
timonial consisted of a silver centre
piece, with two stands, on a plateau of
siiver gut. ine cost ot the plate was
250. - The cradle itself, which was no
larger than a walnut, is suspended from
the centre piece, and is after the fashion
of a nautilus shell.
It is estimated that the number of Chi
nese iu New York city is only about two
hundred. A singular fact is, that all the
celestials there have come from Havana,
not a single one, as far as known arriving
direct from Sau Francisco. There are
but three Chinese women n New York.
All are mothers. A large portion of the
men have married white women, gene
rally of the Irish birth. The most
prominent among the Chinese is named
Keen E. Tong. He is married to an
Irish woman and has three childreu.
He keeps a Chinese boarding house, and
a sort of intelligence office, 'finding pla
ces for Chinese cooks, waiters, etc., on
ships. He is one of the first Chinamen
who came to New York. At the Five
Points house of industry, forty Chinese
are receiving instruction.

A reporter visited the residence of
Mrs. Albert D. Richardson yesterday,
and had an interview with the lady who
resides with her. When in the parlor
he made known his errand. Somewhat
startled at the uenouement. the ladv de
clared that had she known wlro he was
and the business he was on, she would
have been more charry of her invitation
to walk in. "But," she continued,
"you are the first reporter who has ever
visited this house in an official capacity,
and I would be pleased if you would give
publicity to a statement I am -about to
make, and that is, that all the sensa
tional reports in relation to reporters'
interviews with Mrs Richardson are
false. She has never received one of
them, and since she has found that it 13
impossible to obtain justice, or even fair
ness. from the public press, she ha3
ceased to read the papers, and now lives
in the deepest seclusion, seeing bo- one
but her most intimate and tried friends."
"Is there any truth in this printed slip
cut from the Boston Sun ?" She looked
over it and said : "It is on a par with
the other sensational stories that have
appeared froai time to time. There is
not one word of truth in it. Mrs. Rich
ardson has not seen or held communica
tion in an' manner with the individual
here referred to for at least three years."
This ended the interview. Dispatch to
the Jjosto i Herald.
The incumbent of an English church
being anxious to raise funds for some re
pairs to the church, and having but a
modest opinion of his own powers as a
preacher, thought he would write his ap
peal, get it printed, and have it placed in
the pews on the following Sunday. He
accordingly scut his copy to the printer's
and told the sexton to get the bills on
Saturday night and place them in the
pews. On Saturday night the Sexton
sent his son to the printer's office, where
no one but the "devil" of the establish
ment was present. This youth Landed a
bundle of bills to the sexton's son, by
whom, they were duly distributed in the
pews, Tbe astonishment of the con
gregation and the horror of the clergy
man next morning may be imagined on
finding every new in the church con
tained copies or an announcement e-f the
entcrtainme&t at the local Assembly
Room of a clever Sambo singer, and
the fun during the week may bo "better
