The would-be loaders of the Democ
racy in Nebraska have a penchant lor

outside the State, beyond the reach of
the Investigation Committee.
The telegraph announces that the
name of J. J. Hochstetler has been sent
into the Senate as Postmaster at Ne
braska City.
A gentleman of this city was recently
endeavoring to enjoy an evening in the
company of a young lad upon whom he
called, but found a serious obstacle in
the person of her stern father, who at
length ventured to very plainly intimate
that the hour foi retiring had arrived.
" I think you are correct, my dear mi,"
returned the unabashed young man.
'J We have been waiting to have you go
to bed for over an hour."
A pair of overshoes were found on
Fifth street a few day.? ago. The own
er can get them by calling on Marshal
Murphy and paying for this notice.
We think our Lincoln correspondent
must be mi.-taken when he asserts that
the leaders of the investigation were all
bitter opponents of the location of the
capital at Lincoln, and that the invetiga
tion move i a blow at the prosperity of
Lincoln. We kcow but little about the
other members of the Committee, but
our correspondent is certainly wrong in
placing Senator Sheldon as an opponent
f f Lincoln interests.
They had a fireuian's festival at Ne
braska City recently, at which $I.0
were spent in voting a watch to a young
lad-. That was doing well for a small
place, but the people of Plattsmouth vote
$ 400 on a walking stick. They have no
Fitzgerald Hall at Nebraska City, if they
have a howling wilderness.
The holi Is voted in aid of the Bur
lington Si Southwestern K. It. through
Iowa, are said to be of no account in
consequence of certain reservations made
in the vote not recognized by the stat
utes. Plattsmouth takes the leal in all
things, botli in a social and business as
pect. Since our ma-queraJc, the papers
in all the adjacent towns are arguing
masquerades in their respective localities.
The Lincoln Journal announces that
the B. & M. company have already com
menced sending out material to the end
of the track. They "mean business."
The Nebraska City Chronicle advises
the commissioners of Otoe county to
adopt the same plan pursued by the com

Hon. D. McCaig has been in the city
for a day or two. lie is farming on an

The refusal of Gov. Butler to deliver
rp the rain Lincoln, who was arrested
fjr rollir.g a jewelry store in Pittsburg,
upon a requisition from. Gov. Gear, is
creating no little talk.
Wc suppose the Omaha Herald has
reference to Ilawke, Dillion, Conger, etc,
wherf it speaks of "radical corruption.
Geo. S. Smith, Esq., lectures at Nao
mi Institute Wednesday evening.
Jas. F. Joy has recently concluded
negotiations for constructing the St
Louis and Keokuk railroad.
Attorney General Roberts is becoming-
quite popular at th capital by his
f.r,.rrnwl pnursc and unbiased
opinions delivered on important matters. J
Does the Omaha Herald have refer
ence to the fact that every Democrat in
the Home except two voted agaiust the
impeachment resolution, when it cries
"Radical Corruption?"
At a caucus held at Bordeaux 0:1 the
night of the l.jth, of a majority of the
delegates, it was decided to establish a
Provisional Republic with Thiers as
President, Favre as Premier, and Duke
de Cases as Minister of Foreign Affairs.
There has been much complaint in
our city that no one kept a full assort
ment of wall papers. O. F. Johnson
has put an end to that cry by opening
up about tji thousand rolls of the bot
papers ever brought to the west. He
bought in New Yoik and can sell at the
lowest prices- His stock is the largest
ever brought to this market and is com
posed of almost all grades and of every
imaginable pattern.
Didn't Mean It.
We mentioned the fact, at the t'uie of
the occurrance, that Representative Por
ter, of Nemaha County, assailed Presi dent
Grant's Administration in his speech
at the Senatorial banquet. Wc are told
by the Brownville Advertiser that Mr.
Porter disclaims any hostility towards
the Administration, and that what he
said at Lincoln was spoken under ex
citement and in the flu-h of victory, and
that he was not in a mood to fully com
prehend the force of his language. We
accept the explanation but suggest that
Mr. Porter would do well to "think be
fore he speaks" next time.
J. F. Dtud, Esq., has suggested to us
the idea cf extending Chicago Avenue
out as far as the south line of Mr. Max
well's farm. Wc fully agree with lum on
the propriety of this measure, and hope
it will be accomplished early this spring.
This avcntii, properly adorned with trees
on either side, would soon become one of
the most fashionable drives in the west.
Let u have Chicago Avenue, one hun
drcd feet wide", enxtended as far as the
south line of Mr. Maxwell's farm by all
means. Who is there to oppose this
much needed measure?

We clip the following sensible item
flora the columns of the Brownville Ad
"You may talk and think as you will
about immigration societies, but more
good could 1'C accomplished, nnd in a
cheaper end more business like way, if
the Commissioners of Pawnee, Johnson,
Gage and Jefferson counties should each
order one thousand copies of their
county paper?, sent regularly to eastern
centers of publication for free destitu
tion. They would thus secure two ob
jects, greatly imp. rove their papers, and
advertise their own resorces more truly,
extensively and thoroughly, than will be
dono in any other way. Let some
county set the bull ij motion and note
the benefits at the end of the year."
Burt county has decided to assist the
Omaha & Northwestern Railroad in the
amount of j100u0 in county eight per
cent, twenty year bond.
Business has livened up somewhat
during the past ten days, a; d the feeling
is generally entertained that business
will be good and money plenty as soon
as spring business opens.
The Iowa State Musical Convention,
whi h has been in progress at Council
Bluffs for several days past, is said to
have Iccn a fine affair. A large number
of musicians were in attendance, and the
occasion was a pleasant one. It closed
last Friday evening.
The people of Omaha recently held a
fair for the relief of the suffering French,
the total receipts of which are estimated
at $2,Oi.o. The prize cane was awarded
to the Oiuahi Herald.
The members of the Bar of this city
held a meeting Saturday evening to talk
over matters relative to the profession.
We are not informed who "was to read
the riot act."
According to our Lincoln correspond
ent, the bill donating 20,000 of land tol
assist the O. & S. W. R. It. in bridging
the Platte, and authorizing them to ex
tend their line throueh Cass, Otoe Ne
maha, etc., has been defeated by re
maining in the Governor's hands beyond
the allotted time.
The woman whom we mentioned a
few days since as having deserted her
husband, mother and children and taken
uJier abode in a houe of prostitution,
was notified, last Saturday, to leave the
city and State or she would be arrested
as a vagrant. Ihere are others in the
city who should receive the same treat
ment. Several new frame buildings have
been commenced during the past week
in different parts of the city, and there
is little doubt that the number of busi
ness houses and dwelling serected during
the coming season will far outnumber
those of any former j-ear.
Died, February 10th, 1S71, at the
residence of John F. Buck, of Cass
county, Mr. 11 C. Shrydcr, aged 84
years. He was father of George Shry
der, and father-in-law of John F. Buck,
and has been a resident of this county
since 1S5T.
The Omaha Herald intimates that
Representative Hawke, of Otoe county,
has charged the State, for the use of the
Seuate Assembly with many items that
he never supplied. We would not be
at all surprised, for Ilawke is a Demo
crat, of the strictest sect. More "radi
cal corruption." is it not?
To kill a town, under rate the proper

port from your home mechanics and

business of any kind, refusa to advertise

Ornaion, and our word for it, you will
surely succeed.
Something like eighteen mouths ago
Mrs. Mutz, wife of Geo. Mutz, Esq., of
Eight Mile Grove, was salivated during
a fit of sickness. She had been troubled
for some time with a decayed tooth in
the lower jaw on the right side, and the
mercury seemed to take especial hold
upon the tooth and jaw. It grew con
stantly worse, until the teeth on that
side nearly all dropped out, and the
whole side of the jaw became seriously
effected. About two Weeks ago Dr.
McCrea of this city, Dental Surgeon,
was sent for to see if he could give any
relief. The Dr. removed nearly the
whole side of the jaw bone, containing
the socketa for four teeth, which he now
has in his possession. The piece of bone
is about two inches in length, and shows
the fearful ravages of the mercury. The
operation was performed with hardly any
hemorrhage, and with very little incon
venience to the patient, who is now do
ing remarkably well and is relieved from
all unpleasant feelings caused by the de
cayed bone. Dr. McCrea is proving
himself master of his profession.

A most heartrending case of desertion
occurred in our city a few days ago, and
one which the law should tike hold of
if there is a law to reach it. We sup
press the names out of respect for the
innocent babes and the husband and
mother of the detestable wretch who has
caused them so much misery and shame.
About a year or more ago a man and his
wife, with one child and the wife's
mother, moved from Iowa. They had
been married some six years, and seemed
to live as happily as uiany others. Some
time last summer the husband became
convinced that his wife was too familiar
with other men, and talked to her about
it. They had some trouble, au J seporat
cd for a short time. They lived together
afterwards, and a. daughter was born to
hem, the child was only a week eld when
he heartless woman left her husband's
roof, and leaving to her husband
and her mother's care the infant babe,
and took up her abode with a young man
of the city, with whom she has lived in
adultery until a few days ago. Three
dy.Mr j s!i3 entered the bouse of pros
titution kept by Jennie St. Clair, and
has now fully started on the downward
road which most certainly ends at the
gates of the orthodox hell. She is only
about twenty-six years old, and is said
to be a very fine looking woman ; but
what a blackened heart must be beneath
that fair exterior- (Vc can imagine cir
cumstances undsr which a woman might
be driven to a life of prostitution : but
it is difficult to believe that any woman
could be ro lo.-t to all the finer feelings
of nature, and especially to those of a
mother for her innocent and helpless
bate of only a few weeks old, as to enter
upon a life of prostitution almost within
hearing of the wail of her deserted off
spring. Had she gone to some other
locality, and changed her name so as
not to disgrace, forever, her innocent
children and heart-broken mother, it
might net seem so great an outrage.
Since the i-suo of cur Saturday even
ings "paper, containing the notice of the
successful dental operation performed by
Dr. McCrea, he has had applications
from over twenty r en in this city to get

lin, of Otoe have gone to Salt Lake along
with Dr. Miller. The A'eics says they
have all gone to "see the elephant and
the Saline mines." If the charges
against our State officers should not be
substantiated won't these worthies howl
and say "Oh, we could have convicted
them iu just "litccii minutes' if we had
been at home. Rather singular that
these individual? should l.aveja "hanker
in" to visit the 'biker mines" at this
particular time.

J. P. Lantz, of Lincoln, Real Estate
Agent, and publisher of the Nebraska
Intelligencer, called on us this evening,
and reports business moving along at the
capital city.
By the way, Lantz has got up one of
the best maps .of Lincoln, including all
the additions, railroads, public buildings,
also a list of public officers, mem
bers 01 the legislature, etc , tnat we
have ever seen, a copy of which adorns
our sanctum. Lantz is one of the live
men of Nebraska, and persons having
real estate business at Lincoln would do
well to consult him.

For the Herald.
Dear Herald: Do you ever get
weary and worn in the battle of life, and
almost persuaded to give it up? Did it
ever appear as if the midnight lamp
burned never so dim, when the eyes
were almost ready to leap from their
sockets, the hand cramped and unsteady,
the head r.Iuiost burstiiiir, after toiling
at the desk from early dawn, away into
the small hours of night, and the task
but half completed yet? Did you ever
foci that soul thirst for inspiration for
mental strength and quickening fire
that fire which warmed the soul, that
strength of mind, that inspiration which
moved the pen of Milton, Pope, Young
and Pollock ? Is there inspiration in
literature? Yes, now I remember a lit
tle scrap from the pen of Theodore Til
ton, I saw it years ago ; I learned it then
and have not foigottcn it, only when the
cares of life and thoughts of other
things, crowd it from the mind. I will
give it to your many readers, perhaps
theywill be pleased and benolked:
"A sacred familiarity with the Divine
mind, is the best inspiration for litera
ture. Many an author, dead and for
gotten, might have been alive in the
world's memory to-day, only lor the lack
of that quickening into greatness which
comes of God's breath upon the soul.
The world's teachers must first be God's
learners. Wisdom does not grow out of
books when students lock themselves in
shut closets. Tno cloister must open
outward to the world and upward to the
heavens. The great wisdom is God's
divinity and man's humanity. Who
knows this knows most f all ; after this,
what icmains to be learned is little.
God first, man next; the rest are trifles.
What then is the true secret of touching
the Jips with lire? Coleridge knew it
and told it. His words are deep and
true. They hold the talisman which all
poets, all orators, all artists must use if
they would touch the world's heart to
its core. An hour of solitude parsed in
sincere and e-arnest prayer, or the con
flict with and conquest over a single pas
sion or subtle bosom, sin, will teach us
more of thought, will more effectually
awaken the faculty and form the habit of
reflections, than a year's s'.udy in the
schools without them.' Here is a secret
worth knowing ; it is not new, but very
old. It is the same which was known to
the poet of the Hebrews. 'The en
trance cf thy words givcth light ; it giv
cth understanding to the simple.' Good
heed to this saying will make common
men wise, and wise men great. Its
meaning is, 'the fakli of God, taken
into the soul, breathes strength into the
Mr. Clough, of Otoe county, reccoai
tut ii Is, through a communication in the
Cmonide, that in the forthcoming con
stitutional revision, a clause be inserted
allowing all women over twenty-one
years old, unconvicted of crime, and
who own $200 worth of taxable property,
to vote. If we are to have women vote
at all we are in favor of having them
vote without any other restrictions than
those placed upon a en. Let there be

A resident of the city by the name of
Morton, asserted in a conversation yes
terday that Governor Butler had been
bribed in some railroad matter and Mr.
Doom, to whom the conversation was di
rected, informed him that he was a mem
ber of that railroad investigating com
mittee, and would soon call on Mr. Mor

In the absence of the Editor, we will
only say, that the Herald fully appre

"A fOlPLIi or LAMBS"
Some three weeks ago a mn and wo
man came to this city and took boarding
at one of our boarding houses, he giving
the name of Wm. Haines. Since com
ing here he received a package of money
by express, when he signed his name
as Win. Bass. lie has not seemed to
have any employment, unless it was
gambling, and we are informed that he
carries a very bad countenance. They
were passing here as man and wife
Last night at the supper table the man
Haines, or whatever his name uiay be,
had sonic words with one of the board
ers, said to have originated in jealousy,
and seizing a knife, attempted to kill the
young man, (whose name we did not
learn) but he made bis escape with no
further injury than a severe cut in the
hand, and ran for an officer. Williams
was soon on the spot, and found the
"pet lamb" under a bed. He induced
him to come out and accompany him to
the Recorder's office, where His Honor,
after hearing the case, imposed a fine
and cost, and in default of payment he
was sent to jail. The woman cave her
name as Sarah Jane Coon says Haines
is from Red Rock, Iowa, and her pa
rents live not far from there; says they
have lived together about a year, but
arc not married. She has never known
him to work, and don't know what he
does. Haines lias gone by a number of
different names, and been in numerous
scrapes in Iowa, and was shot in the
arm by an officer, in Ft. Dcs Moines,
who was attempting to arrest him.
From what information we have, wc con
clude they are a desperate couple, and
hope they uiay get their just deserts,
which they are pretty sure of if they

The "President" failed to get across
last evening. The ice from above was
too much for her.
Officer Williams had his "pet lamb"
repairing the sidewalks and crossings to
day. The follows countenance would
send him t9 the Penitentiary anywhere
cast of the Missouri rivtr, and may here.
Tho ice is piling up in large mascs
abovethis city. It comes from the Platte.
The President made her upper landing
to day, and will probably make regular
trips hereafter.
The Plattsmouth Collegiate School Ex
amination anil Exhibition w 11 be held in

All are kindly invited. The examina
tion will consist of the various branches
of English and German education. The

mental music, recitations, readings, char

Mr. John A. Stevens, of the Omaha
Academy of music, with his talented
troupe among whom arc Miss Edith
Bland and Miss Carlotta will appear in
Plattsmouth for three nights, commenc
ing on Monday evening, February 27th.
The opening play will be the two act
Comedy, of "Who Killed Cock Robin."
There will be a song and dance between
the pieces by the favorite s-ongstrcss,
Mis Edith Bland, and will close with
the laughable fare .3 of "Jennie Lind, or
the Swedish Nightingale."
The Omaha Jirpuljlicaii of Sunday
morning calls loudly for a full and
thorough investigation, and insists that
the facts shall be brought out on all mat
ters where ever a question has been
raised. We fully arrvee with the Re
puldican, and suggest that no stone be
left unturned to arrive at these facts, let
who will be hurt in consequence ; and
right here we would call on the Commit
tee of Investigation to summon Maj
Balcomb before them and ask him what
he knows in regard to the letting of the
contract for public piinting a little
over two years ago. "Send for persons
and papers."
Two ladies were thrown from a wagon
in the south part of the city last Mon
day, and one of them injured severely.
We did not learn their names.
Superintendent Patterson inform us
that the teachers of the city are not at
tending the Institute in sessions here.
Why is this thusly? Why don't they
Wc are unofficially informed that
John Fitzgerald, Esq., of this city, was
married, at Council Bluffs, yester
day, to MNs Kelley, of that place,
and that the happy couple started eat
on a wedding tour. We suppose we
will be compelled to abandon the use of
the chosen title of "our Fitz." now, for
he is no longer "our Fitz 1" alone,
but his "better half" will claim him as
her own. We wish them long life and
much joy.
W. L. Hobbs, Esq., stepped up to
"the captain's office" yesterday and
paid a year in advance on his daily pa
per, and subscribed for four more copies
of the weekly to be sent to friends east
(he was already sending three or four
copies). A few more men like Hobbs
would make us poor newspaper men feel
that our efforts to help the town and
country were appreciated. Who comes
next ?

The Standard publishes the following
certiiicate of New York commercial hon
esty: "A certain leading grocery house
on the west side of town recently re
ceived a cask of dried herrings in the
very best of merchantable order. The
pontic man whose name the firm bears
caused these to be taken out of the cask
and had put in their Ftead a lot that was
old and decaying. These were sent to
the firm from which the fresh lot had
been received, with the explanation that
the good being damaged, they could
not be received."
Aunt Judy, a pious old colored woman
is said to have expressad herself as follows
in reference to the vociferous habits of cer
tain persons at camp meeting : "Taint de
real grace; honey, tant de shure glory.
You hollers too loud. When you get3 de
dove in your heart, and de lamb on your
bosom, you'll ftell as if you was in dat
stable at Cethl'm. and de blessed Virgin
had hiit you de slevpir..' baby to hold.''
The Lincoln Journal comthiin3 that
the papers of the State, not in open bos
tility to the Governor, have not taken
the cudgel in his favor when he has been
unjustly assailed. We differ somewhat
from the position of the Journal upon
this question. If the Governor is unjust
ly assailed, and is persecuted by design
ing men who attack him in order to ele
vate themselves over his ruin, (as we do
not doubt is the case with some who are
howling at him), that fact will develop
in good time, and will most certainly re
act upon the men who- seek bis injur."
in this way. The question of wheth
er Gov. Butler and the other State Offi
cers and ex. officers are guilty of doing
things worthy of censure, or other pun
iahment, is now being examined into by
a joint committee, appointed for that
purpose; and we apprehend that news
paper articles, or newspaper charge, e n
either side of the question, will have lit
tle' effect with the committee, unless
the writers thereof substantiate their as
sertions underoath before the committee;
neither do we apprehend that the com
mittee (composed of just and upright
men, as they must be to have secund
an election) will allow themselves to do
so unjust a thing as to report to the
Legislature and the world that Gov.
Rutlcr or any other officer or ex-offictr is
guilty of even an injudicious act, let
alone one of a criminal nature, until
they have fairly examined the matter in
all its bearings, and allowed the accused
the privilege (or the right) to as full a
hearing as the men have who seek to do
them an injury (provided they are inch)
Believing that the committee will do
this, and that they will not report
against any one of the men implicated
without such full hearing that no one
sided persecution will be permitted we
again say we see8 no especial reason why
the newspapers of the State should de
fend Gov. Butler again-t any who are
disposed to persecute him cither mali
ciously or (as is often the ca-c) simply
to distinguish themselves and on wh
they think will be the popular sid. If
me committee were incline! to a one
sided course, then we admit that the
papers of the State should have some
thing say for the commonest criminal
in the land is allowed full justice, and is
always allowed council and a full hearing.
Whereas, The County Commission
ers contemplate taking into considera
tion, at their next regular meeting, on
the 7th of March, the propriety of calling
an election for the purpose of voting aid
to one or more Railroads in this county,
and, Whereas: the delegate meeting be
fore the Commisionersat Plattsmouth on
the 20:h, inst., failed to produce united
action, owing to a misunderstanding on
the part of the different precincts.
Therefore, it is recommended that a
Convention b held at Weeping Water,
on Wednesday, March 1st., at 12 o'cloc k
m., consisting of two delegates from each
precinct, to draw up resolutions express
ive of the of the people to be pre
vented to the County Commissioners at
their next regular meeting.
