PLAT1SM0UTH NEBRAKSA., THURSDAY, NOV. 17, 1870. 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 borne. 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 be a perpetual convenience and advan tage, ana with the growing importance of a southern trade via Sk Loais, will be tk -channel for surplus-products and trade. Jiepuilican. The- fallowing note from a grief stricken -parent explains- itself : "IMeaso excuse my son's absence from school caused by the Dah of brother who was accidentally killed, and who was at the funeral yesterday."

STAKTU.Xi IXCEXDIABIS3I. An Attempt to Hum the I.nnatlc Aoyimii 1 lie Building: Daiunged but Migbtly. 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 wing. 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 northeast corner. 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 conumtd. The damage is estimated by Mr. Ward at $50. From the Omaha Republican. 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 reversed. 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 Jersey Blues. 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 gan Briggs. Wisconsin. The Republicans lose a member of Congress in the Milwaukee district, but carry the State by the usual majority. 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. . Kentucky ditto. The latest Ku-Klux outrage in Ata lanta a white dog attached to the un mentionables of a Fifteenth amendment, iu th vicinity of a hen-roost. As everything English is now the rage in New York, it is expected the fash ionables will all wear big feet this season, and get their boots built out doors. Isrful Information.

Patiiile Your Own Can oo. Judsre S. ernve his son a thousand dol lars, telling him to go to college and graduate. The son returned at the end of'-Freshman year without a dollar, and severab-ugly -habits. About the close of the vacation the Judpre said to his son "Well, William, you are going to col lege this year r "Have no money, father." "But I gave you a thousand dollars to grail uatc on. "It's all cone, father." "Very well, my son ; it was all I shall give you ; you must now pay your own wav in the world. 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 has made a record for himself that will not soon die, being none other than Wil liam II. Seward. 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, shouted out: "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 there. 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 ing at the Judge, '"but I don't raind what he says. Mother don't neither, and 'tween she and I we've about got the dog so he don't." 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 t inlt to. Mrs. A. I. Kiebnrrtnon. 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 imagined than described."
