Ashland, Dec. 19. ISTo.
Dear Herald: The discussion be
tween Dr. Dunn, of Kockford, Ills., and
Prof. Miller, of this city, came off at the
appointed time. The resolution discuss
ed is as follows :
Resolved, That Spiritualism is a truth
and is taught by the Bible
Hon. A. B. Fuller was called to the
chair, and after the accustomed prelim
inaiies. and the reading of the resolu
tion, the debate was opened by Dr. Dunn
and, of course, followed by Pi of. Miller.
I will not attempt an elaborate report of
the discussion, us time and space will not
admit. The disputants did not begin to
come up to the expectations of their
auditory. Much of their time was spent
in down right blackguardism, and dodg
ing facts introduced. Miller is a good
naturcd, unassuming speaker, but lacks
an easy flow of language, and allows him
self to fall into the use of many blunt
and elang phrases. Dunn is a wily deba
ter, and plans ahead, often causing his
adversary to become entrapped before he
is aware "of it. He is, also, an easy
speaker, and much of a dramatist; and
with his wonderful power of drawing on
the passions of his audience, he decoys
many an unguarded one into the be
lief with himself. But the chairman of
the meeting protested against any
such demonstrations, and informed
the audience that they should
not bo considered as argument. They
debate the same quostiou at Lincoln to
night, to-morrow night and Wednesday
The musical entertainment, under di

assistance rendered on this occasion.

FROM FILLMORE COUNTY.

Editor Herald : I have not felt
like standing still and "cussing a straight
blue streak" for a long time. A strong
desire to "cuss" jut a little, came over
me as well as the majority of the people
in this vicinity when we read an article
in the Statesman, of Dec. 3d, over the
signature of Henry Grebe, dated Omaha,
Nov. ', 1870, on the subject of "Emi
gration." Mr. Grebe proposes, in order
to induce emigration to the ' Great
American Desert," to have the State
Legislature mcmorialiie Congress to
grant to this State the right to improve
lands set apart by the government for
homestead purposes. He said : "It
sounds well to say that our Government
gives to any man who ch'oscs to com
ply with certain conditions laid down by
law, ones hundred and sixty acres of
land. But to thousands of good honest
men, this offer is practically worthless.
A quarter section of land is a barren
gift to the head of a family." He wants
the State to appropriate say $500,OX or
$000,000, and with this amount build
a good house and break five to
ten acres on ea;h and every homo
stead. He thinks, by doing this, we
could get Nebraska settled up. I would
ask tho gentleman where the money is
to come from, with which he would
make his proposed improvements, if not
from the poekets of us poor devils who
have endured the hardships and priva
tions of frontier 1 fe for the past four or
fiveyeirs? We thought wa we ro get
ting a good thing when "Uncle Sam" gave
us one hundred and sixty acres of land
We did not grumble much when he took
eighty acres away from us and gave it to
the railroad, companies. Wo told our
friends back cast that it was a good thing
yet, and thousands are coming to our
State every month, and they will con
tiuuc to come with the present induce
ments, until there is not a homestead
left in the State. Hundreds are coming
to our State who are glad to pay from
five to twenty dollars per acre for rail
road and school lands. We would a-k
the original philanthropist how much of
his proposed "appropriation" it would
take - to run his "mnchiue ?" The
Statesman w-s so taken with Mr.
Grebe's bantling that it came out with a
long, laborious editorial, in favor of
"the "appropriation." If the amount
should be appropriated, who would have
the handling of the money?
Statesman would int consent to have so
large an amount fall into the hands of
any of the present State officers, after
all it has said about dishonesty and em.
bezzlement the past four months.
Grebe in one place speaks of our "broad,
rich acres," and then, in the next breath,
he says one hundred and sixty of these
acres are "practically worthless to good,
honest men, fathers of families, &e.
A quarter section of this land is a b ir
ren gift to the head of a family.'
Shame on the man that would write such
an article in regard to our State. The
Omaha Herald must have been in great
want of "filling," to have admitted sieh
a conglomeration of contradictions into
its columns. Its editor must have had
a definite idea of the evil consequences
of such a publication. Mr. Grebe ap
pears to have had a faint impression
that his literary production would not
take well, for he says : "It may be chi
mcrical and impracticable," but he tays
"1 give it it as my view of the subject."
Yes sir, we think it is sir, quite chimeri
cal and impracticable, sir. And 1 will
tell you why I think so sir. Two years
ago I came to Nebraska on business. I
saw and liked the country better than
anythiug I had ever seen before, al
though 1 had traveled extensively in
twenty-three of the States the whole
length of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts
of South America all over British
America and the West Indies. I said
at that time, as I say now, Ncbiaska is
the garden of the world. I took & small
slice about eighty acres away out here
in Fillmore county. I made a half sub
terranean "dug out," not one of your
little, tucked up things. Lnt n good big
one, 22x24 inside. You see I was not
afraid of work. Then I started back to
Des Moines after my family, with thirty
five cents in my pocket, and a farm in
Nebraska. On the 24th day of April,
ISG'J, I landed my family (a wife and six
children) on my homestead. After
taking an inventory, of my effects I
found I had just provisions for two
weeks, one span of old hoises, one cow,
one plow and twenty three cents in ca.-h.
The cash I paid for postage on letters to
friends East. Then we went to work,
sir. We have had our share of losses
and hard fare, vet we have alTavs had
, . t -, "i uJ" Ia
enougn io eai ana a ntue lor caiiera and
tha TOor. . To day we have a good crib
of corn plenty of oats, wheat, barley and
vegetables. e have forty acres under
cultivation, the old horses in good condi
tion, two yoke of oxen, three c: ws, Ac.,
&e., all paid for. "What uiau has done,
man may do."
There are hundreds of farr ihes in these
western counties that hae done better
than we have. Now, sir, you want us
to pay "cash up" for you to build a
house and thc breaking of ten acres of
prairie for the next man that is to come !
No sir ee, we won't do it 1 There are
thousands and tens of thousands that
don't ask it. and they are day by day
flocking into Nebraska, and helping
themselves, sir. I have had mv 'du2
out' chuck full for the past eight weeks,
j As soon as wo can get one set out, an
other comes in. That's the tcav ice hefn
them, sir. We would say to Mr. Grebe
that it will take, more tlian one of his
chimeriral splurges to convince people
that a quarter w?etion of land in Ne
braska, is a "bsTea gift.' or that land in
this State i "practically worthless."

We ask the Statesman, who has kept up
such an infernal howling the pa.-t six
months about taxation, how much it
will give and how much it wants ms to
give to aid this "foreign immigration
element? Who are to build up our com

not that the Sta'esman thinks it sees a
"light ahead" in this "foreign immigra
tion element." The State has already
erected a costly edifice for the accommo
dation of this foreign element ; but the
Statesman wants us to build country
seats for it. Shall we put gratings at
the windows, sir? Docs the Statesman
think that this foreign element are more
deserving, or have they less "gumption"
than the home element ? We would say
to tho Statesman and its coadjutors that
they will never be a le to control that
foreign element. It will never fill your
sails and waft you into power. No, sir,
Republican principles are becoming too
deeply implanted in the minds of a ma

Tho New York Herald's special says
the Prns-ians pre short of men and 20,
oOO fresh troops are coining, but Ver

the heavy guns of the French, which are
being moved forward, will soon bring the
palace within their range, and the French
are resolved to destroy it. Eventually
Paris will fall by starvation, but not
within three months. There will be no
bombardment. The Prussians, 21,000
strong, attacked Muits yesterday, with
eleven batteries, and after a combat of
five hours, in which they sustained heavy
losses, occupied the place. It is expect
ed that the battle will b-- resumed to
day. The enemy falls back as General
Bourbaki advances. The French troops
have rcoccupiei Vierzon.
Bordeaux, December 19.
Some journals here have asserted that
there have been troubles in Paris; that
Gustave Flourens has been imprisoned,
and Blanqui shot. Thc government
paid no attention to thc report, but
semi-official advices arc that the -ity of
Paris was quiet, and auimated with one
sentiment that of common dtffencc. -
Keports from the forces in the east and
west of France arc good.
There has been some excitement here
owing to tli? promulgation of fal.-e news
over the forged signature of Gambetta,
the purpose being apparently to cause a
reaction by the dissemination of news
unfavorable to the French arms. Dis
patches of this sort, purporting to come
from Havre, have appeared simultane
ously in all parts of the country. It was
soon demonstrated, however, to be a
Prussiau device. It is noticeable that
the opposition journals are more bitterly
violent towards the Prussians than ever.

The Herald's Brussels correspondent
telegraphs this morning that the bom
bardment of Paris is declared impossible.
It is not humanity that restrains the
Prussians, but t-iuiply the impossibility
for them to succeed, as they have neither
the number uor caliber of guns neces
sary. They hava only fi)0 guns, mainly
1!5 pounders. The French out-works,
which command tho batteries, can des
troy them the moment they open fire.
Paris has two months supply of food.
London, December "0.
The French forces attacked by Gen.
Werder, at Wirts, were in largo num
bers and held strong positions. The
Germans captured 6,000 prisoners, to
gether with the town. The French were
pursued southward on Monday. The
French force, 10,000 strong, has been
defeated at Parslay and Fourtenelle. m
Military movements continue active.
The French are evidently endeavoring to
concentrate. ( )ne of the German armies
is falling back before Bourbaki.
A dispatch from Brussels says the lake
heavy calls for the laudwehr, denote a
weakness in tho investment of Paris.
Their operations are more defensive than
offensive. One or two more sorties like
the la-t will raise the scigc. A -Frankfort
dispatch says a month will be requir
ed before the bombardment of Paris will
be possible. The present guns are useless
while the French guns are nearly in range
New York, Deoembr 20.
A Herald's special dated Lcneans,
December 10. says: There has been a
second change of base. This diffusion of
the army of the Loire is successful strat
egy, as it brings the fighting nearer Pa
ris. The immense stores accumulated at
Blais and Orleans designed for revictual
liinr Paris were all saved. Tho Prussians
j did not capture a single car load, which
is a sunieieni answer ii mc uaiiu m
they had routed the army of the Loire.
After leaving Oleans if the army of the
Loire had made a flank movement on
Vcndomc. it might have been easy to de
fend Tours ; but both armies cut loose.
The country here presents the same fa
eilities for rapid changes of base that
