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 night. The musical entertainment, under di rection of Mrs. S. M, Payne, was a grand success. Mrs. Payne is a profes sional teacher of music both vocal and instrumental and is certainly an adept in her profession. Miss 8. E. Miller, Accompanyiat, also deserves praise for assistance rendered on this occasion. Two or three weeks since my eyes caught sight of the C'f County Demo crat, issued m your city.

But there are plenty of persons who will subscribe for it, and pay their money for it, and you know the old adage about money what it does, etc. Plattsinonth is becoming quite a news paper point.

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? Surely the 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. Mr 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."

Who are to build up our com man Democratic interests f Ve doubt 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 jority for you to buy them with a "$100 house and five or ten acres cf bieaking." You are trying to handle an element that will swallow your leaky old craft and its The light which you shed, in this crew, element will onlv burn at your parties wake. Beware, gentlemen, uot only this foreign element but a mighty tidal wave of the "home element" are bound for Nebraska, an 1 unless you keep j our "weather eye" upon it it will sink you into eternal furg t fulness, where you will never howl any more about taxes, em bezzlement, Butler, etc. Thoso planks won t float in this roaring element.

London, December 19. Tho New York Herald's special says the Prns-ians pre short of men and 20, oOO fresh troops are coining, but Ver sailles is likely to soon be untenable as 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. London, Dec. 19. A large open air meeting was held yea terday in Trufalga square, at which speeches were made and resolutions adopted sympathizing with France.

A correspondent, afier makieg the tour of the German lines, writes on thc 15th quite positively, that it will be im possible ever to bombard Paris, effect ively. The anxiety of the Germans for peace is intense. Th German troops i are on the point of inunity. j Jtats are eaten in Paris only on wagers : j and for pa-time.

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 with Ver-aillcs. 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 Grant found on the seaboard of Virgin ia. CHICAGO P..OUUI: MARKET. Chicago, Dccerubei 20. Flour Dull and unchanged.
