The Court of Impeachment lias ad
journed Ibr fixty days, at the expiration
of which time it seems that Loth sides
will be allowed to introduce new testi
mony, thus virtually opening up the trial
anew. What the particular occasion is

in the dart, but will probably know
won, when our readers shall be informed.
The vote in the Senate last Monday
fur an adjournment of the Impeachment
C-.mt until May 30th is generally looked
uj-on as a test of the convictions of the
uieu-bers on the merits of the case.
Tlicre were at least two or three of those
toting for the adjournment "who were
s'iai l to take the responibility of voting
uu acjuittal, notwithstanding they wer,e
convinced thxt the evidence did not jus
tify a conviction, in consequence of the
excited state of public feeling in the lo
calities where they reside.

Politics are somewhat muddled in our
ii;y. but the He publicans have decided
;o hold a convention, and will probably
nominate a straight party ticket or at
knt so Biuch of a ticket as is deemed
" expedient under existing local affairs.
It is hoped that every llepuLHean in the
city T.ill attend the Ward meetings
TLurxliy eveninfr, and that they will
take such action, as Republicans, as they
u.ay deem for the Lest interests of the
party and the City. We have, from the
fcr.-t, U-Uavcd in the plan of nominating
jc.rty U.kets, because wC have believed
that in that way we could secure better
administration of affairs than in any
other. It may bo said that parties will
not always nominate their best men.
,Ve agree with that statement'; but will
two parties, both of whom would select
1 a 1 men, if thrown together secure the
nomination of good men. We fail to
Sue tho force of the reasoning. e
luree fullv with those men who say that
the present administration of our city
affairs s-hould be changed, but we also
Mievu that the democratic party is rc-.-ponrible
for the present condition of our
i ity fiuances, and that they should be
hfid accountable as a party for the acts
of the present city officers, for they were
.Vcctcd as democrats, by democratic
fotes, and a square party issue, Re
publicans voting against them. Let
the forth-coining Republican Convention
which bids fair to be attended by
nearly every Republican in the city see
to it, should they see fit to nominate a
ticket, that they place the very best men
before the people, and that nothing be
J'lnc to prevent the accomplishment of
the real object sought by those Republi
cans tthn hnvo tal-on LolJ of tint rovn
cration of the city that of ousting from
power those men who are now at the
head of our city affairs, placed there by
the democratic.party. Let harmony pre
vail in our councils, and all will be well.
Or. Miller is ashamed of his "evi
dence" when he sees it in print, and he
tries to deny it (like Peter of old) He
finds the pretext for a denial in the fact
that a tingle subject, upon which he
made a stump speech before the com
mittee, we condensed the matter into a
reasonable space, and made the single
error of saying that he was called out of
Led instead of out of his office. Here
is tho paragraph as we gave it :
"I was, during the fall campaign,
. tailed out of bed by a prominent Re
publican of Omaha, and asked to 'let
ft up' on the charges against the Governor.
I lie al"o asked that Governor Butler have
a private interview with me ; this 1 re
fused. I believe from the course taken by the
Stutsman at Lincoln, for Rutler, he
has control over it, but have no jwsonal
l;ii"ii:L!(i-" of it."
And here is the paragraph in full as it
Viipcars on the official evidence, and we
isk Dr. Miik-r to show us the difference
. r r
in point oi i:et.
Piiur to the late election for Governor,
at a lute hour cf the night I was called
outf my editorial room, at Omaha, by
a y.romiiient Republican citizen of that
jlace into the alley in the rear of the
Jit raid, building, and I was there asked
by that gentleman to grant to Governor
Butler, who was then in the city, a pri
vate interview with me. I refused to
comply with that request. This gentle
man urged me very strongly to see Gov
ernor Butler, saying it would do no harm
to talk with him. 1 peremptorily de
fliued to do so. Considerable conversa
tion ensued, in whiehl wns told that I
could have no interest in Mr. Croxton,
who was the Democratic candidate for
Governor; and was urged to "let up" on
!ov. Butler in regard to the charges the
Ilr.itAl.n was then making against him.
I was led to understand, and did under
stand, although no proposition vf this
tort tr-ts mnde by that gentleman, that
- ;he object was, through monied consider-
tions, to silence the Jleoahl in regard to
what I considered, issue3 of the greatest
importance to the State. The name of
;the gentleman with whom I had the in
terview was Wm. F. Sweczey. So tar
.a other papors of the State are coa--eerned,
I have been informed upon what
!I deemed reliable authority, that the
Staletinan, at Lincoln, has been under
the monied contract of Gov. Butler, and
that has accounted to uic for its failure as a
professedly Democratic journal, to pro
perly oppose Got. Butler and the State
administration. I have no personal
knoxcledfje. of any transactions of this
rhiracter between Gov. Butler and the
State officers, and any of the proprietors
of these journals, but from the silence of
TX roaie. and the course or otliers, have be-

We have now given the readers of the
Herald tho evidence in full before
the Senate in the Butler Impeachment
case, and trust each one will read it care
fully and decide for himself whether or
no there is sufficient proof of crime to
convict David Butler. Read it without
favor or prejudice, and apply it to the
case as you would expect it applied were
you on trial instead of David Butler.

The second examination and exhibi
tion of the above school were held and
given in White & Spire's Hall on Mon
The examination commenced at 2, and
continued till 5 o'clock p. m. It would
have taken nearly a week to have exam
ined all the classes in all the subjects in
which they were prepared. The time,
however, was only sufficient for the ex
dictation, geography, arithmetic, and
German, and in those only a few classes.
The "answering" was satisfactory to the
examiners, who expressed themselves as
well pleased with the progress of the
The examiners were as follows : Supt.
Patterson, Mr. Waugh, A. M- P. Coll,
Mr. Chase, Rev. Mr. Cameron, Dr.
Rawlin3, and the Rev. Mr. Young.
The audience at the examination was
small but very select and appreciative.
Of the goodly number of ladies that
were there several were to your corres
pondent unknown. But he was pleased
to sec Mrs. Livingston, Mrs. Wheeler,
Mrs. Dr. Rawlins, Mrs. Altaffer, Mrs.
Duke and Mrs. Pollock. Several male
teachers from the country were present.

Hall was crowded the people having
taken it as by storm.
At S:30 the curtain arose and revealed
a pretty sight. In front of the platform
was seen presiding at the harmonium the
fair and talented young organist, Miss.
Carrie Schlater, and surrounding her G
young and beautiful girls, a cluster of
seven stars, who not only shone brightly
but also sang sweetly several sweet melo
dies, both in English and German.
In the background of the stage were
arranged, very picturesquely, the young
men and youths who were to take part in
the programme of tho evening. The
whole was under the superintendence of
their indefatigable teachers, Professor
and Master Charles d'Allemand. Be
sides the concert pieces, ducts &c, there
were many interesting recitatious, origin

which were well received the laige

clapping of hand. There were also

the saying "Jn corj oresano, mens fa.ir."
But 3Ir. Editor, it would require your
lively quill and much space and time to
give all that was interesting in detail.
The whole was concluded by Mr. Young
in a little speech returning thanks to the
audience for their presence and appre
ciation. He asked them to remember
that the Professsor, iu thsse public cx
aminations, (the people not he being the
examiners) invites them to prove his
work, of what kind it is. Thereby he is
the better able to we wherein he can im
prove that which is imperfect and sup
ply that which is yet lacking in his pu
pils This is the second public examina
tion ia four months. Surely he is in
earnest, striving to make his school, in
the best sense, a successful one. For
this erfd ho labors day and night, sparing
neither person nor purse. Indeed he
has expended already in providing and
furnishing school rooms nearly $3,000.
He has provided two pianos, one of them
a Steinway, purposing to have an in
structor in instrumental and vocal music,
one of the best teachers and performers
in the State of New York. Surely 'tis
to be desired that the citizens of Platts-

j ronize and entourage him.

must say that for young beginners it was

Mr. Editor: At the People's Con

Saturday evening last, I was nominated
and elected candidate for the office of
Police Judge. I was informed by the
chairman and others whom I considered
to be good authority that I was not eli
gible to hold office, owing to the fact
that I was not one year in the State.
I With thi3 understanding I resigned. I
have since investigated tne matter, and
find I am eligible under the existing laws
of the State. I, therefore, at the earn
est request of my many friends, with
draw my resignation and accept the
nomination. I am duly grateful for the
honor conferred on me by the people,
and if elected it will be my ambition to
discharge tho duties of the office in aa
honest, upright manner. The law in re

An act to incorporate cities of the
second class and to define their powers :
Article. 1 Section 11. The Coun

consist of not less than four nor more
than twelve oitizens of said city, who

As I am a qualified elector and a prop
erty holder, there can be no question
as to my eligibility to hold office in case

A GOOD .MOVE.
About two months ago the young men
of our city effected the organization of a
Lyceum, and since that lime it has been
gradually increasing in numbers and in
terest, till now it is an honor to our city.
Its terms arc of the most liberal kind
not costing anything to become a mem
ber of it, excepting now and then a very
light expense for light, fuel, etc. Its
books are always open to receive tho
names of those who may wish to become
members and take an interest in its pro
ceedings. Drones arc not wanted
none but those who will work Tor its wel
fare and for self-iinprovemeut. Its or
ganization i3 the same a3 that of other
well organized societies of a similar char
acter, and the questions for discussion
are alway3 opsned by two chief dispu
tants, followed by all the members in
regular turn. Much interest is mani
fested in those discussions, and quite an
amount of talent and genius displayed
by all the participants. Its sessions are
now being held at the School House of
the Second ward, every Thursday even
ing ; and the society hopes to see a good
attendance of ladies and gentlemen at
their next meeting and ever after. La
dies are especially invited. We under
stand that the Lyceum will be regaled
with cheering strains of music, both vo
cal and instrumental, at the opening and
closing of the evening exercises. We
wish their enterprise a deserved sue

Lincoln, March 24.
Editor, Herald : The last witness
in the trial of Governor Butler was ex
amined yesterday, and the Senate sitting
as a court adjourned at an early hour for
the convenience of the managers, that
they might have time to prepare for the
closing arguments commenceing this
morning. The prosecution called J. S.
Davis ex-Secretary of the Nebraska
Air Line R. R-, to the witness stand
yesterday morning, he was examined ia
relation to the consolidation of that
road with the Sioux City and Pacific
R. It., and in regard to the issuing of
the stock of the company, they failed to
elicit anything that would have a teoden
cy to implicate the Governor in any dis
honorable transactions connected there
with. The Managers again had ex-State
Treasurer Sweet, aud Mr. Kocnig the
present incumbent, and Mr. Bartlett his
deputy, before the Senate as witnesses
for the purpose of rebutting the testi
mony of McConnell the ex-partner of
Jas. Sweet & Brock, relativo to that 5
per cent school fund loan,
The bill providing for tho calling of
a Constitutional Convention, has at last
passed both Iiouses, and has received
the signature of the Acting Governor
and has become a law. The bill pro
vides for the election of fifty delegates,
in the same manner as members of the
Scnati and House of Representatives are
elected. The delegates to be elected on
the first Tuesday in May, and the Con
vention to convene at Lincoln on the
second Tuesday in May next.
The closing arguments in ho Gover
nor case will begin this morning. The
Senate has decided to give each side
three hours to wind up the case on. In
all probability I will be able to send you
the verdict in my next. The House .is
in session whenever twenty members
can be caught here. Leck.
Ed. Herald: Immcdiataly after the
reassembling of the Impeachment Court
yesterday morning, General Eatabrook
began the closing argument for the pros
ecution, he continued his remarks unti'
late in the afternoon, reviewing the arti
cles of impeachment, and each specifica
tions together with the evidence intro
duced in support thereof.
He was followed by Mr. Redick, coun

Porter will close the case to day.

Editor Herald: On Saturday, at
3o'c!oek p. m., the Hon. T. JI. Marquett
counsel for the Governor, closed his ar
gument in opposition to the articles of
Impeachment. This gentleman is right
ly regarded as being the ablest coun.sel
that has participated in this important
trial. And his speech in defense of
Governor. Butler at the closing of the
trial was the most able and eloquent ef
fort ever listened to within the capitol
He was cften heartily applauded, and
that he stands foremost at the legal bar
of Nebraska, there is no doubt, lie
was followed by Manager Porter, who
closed the trial in a two hour's speech in
support of the Impeachment articles.
The gentlemen elected by the House to
manage this trial, were the ablest men
of that body, and they deserve credit for
the able manuer they have conducted the
esse. They have made out the strongest
case possible, though not enough so,
in the opinion cf those who have attend
ed ihe trial to warrant conviction.
The Senators will vote on tha articles
separately this morning. Each Senator
will ari?e in his seat as his name is called,
and the presiding officer will ask, Wdiat
say you, Senator, is the respondent, Da
vid Butler, Governor, guilty, or
not guilty, of the charges preferred in
this article, and so on until the whole
number of articles are disposed of. Each
Senator is allowed to file his written
opinion of the case and have it recorded
on the journal.

of the result.

On Thursday morning last, the 15th

for the future, as they passed through

The thirty-one cars consisted of four
large B. & M. coaches, holding passen

full fares, six cars horses, eight cars
cows and young cattle, five cars house

agricultural implements. They were

Late IIours-A Lady's Advice to Touus
A lady who has been" a "Martyr,"
sends us the article below, which we
heartily print with our emphatic en
dorsement: "Dear gentlemen between the ages of
15 (!) and 45 (!) listen to a few words of
gratuitous remarks. W hen you make a
social call of an evening, on a young lady,
go away at a reasonable hour. Say you
come at 7 o'clock, an hour and a half is
certainly as long as the most fascinating
enjoy it better, and really value your ac
quaintance more. Just conceive the
agony of a girl who, well knowing the
feelings of a father and mother upon the
subject, hears the clock strike 10, and
yet mut sit on the edge of her chnir in
mortal terror lest ua pa should rut his oft
repeated threat into execution :hat of
inviting the gentleman to breakfast.
And we girls understand it all by expe
rience, and know what it is to drea 1 the
prognostic of displeasure. In such cases
a sigh of relief generally accompanies
the closing of the door behind the gallant,
and one don't get over the feeling of
troublo till safe in the arms of Morphe
us. Even then sometimes the dreams
are troubled with some phantom of an
angry father and distressed (for all
parties) mother and all because a young
man will make a longer call than he ought
to. Now, young gentlemen frieuJs, I'll
tell you what young girls will d. For
an hour and a half we will be most irre-
; sistrtMy charming and facinatirg. Tliert
beware ; monosyllable responses will Ikj
all you need expect ; aud when the limits
shall have passed and a startling query
shall be heard comin a; down stairs, "Isn't
it time to close "up?" you will consider
it a righteous punishment, and taking
your hat, depart a sadder, and it is to be
honed a wiser man. Do not get angry,
but the next time you come be careful to
keep within just bounds. Wc want to
rise early these fine mornings, and im
prove the "shining hours;" but forced
to keep up at such unseasonable hours
at night, exhausted nature will speak,
and as a n itural consequence, with ut
most speed in dresin?, wc can barely get
down to breakfast, in time to escape rep
rimand f'roTsi papa, who don't believe in
beaux as if he never was young and a
mild reproving glance from mama, who
underftands a little bitter her poor
daughters' feelings, must still disapprove
outwardly to keep up appearance. And
now, young men, think of these thin.ss,
and don't, for pity's sake, thiow down
your paper with a pshaw but
member the safe side of 10.
A Martyr to Late Hours
ftmnll Farm a.
Be content with a small place entirely
Eaid for, if you have not the r-oney to
uy a large farm. Do not allow that ea
ger and avaricious spirit to "own all the
land that joins yours" to ruin you- One
of the curses of our agricultural districts
is the me of our firms. Forty acres
paid for, and tilled, is better, and far
more remunerative than four hundred
undir a heavy mortgage, and only half
cultivated. Where ons man may suc
ceed by rashness in assuming large re
spousibilities, hundreds fail and experi
ence ohsevation will show that the sucess
fu! owners of large tracts of lands, have
usually begun by small purchases for
cash, and by gradual additions as they
acquired wealth by industry and econo-
Christian people can employ them
selves in peeking to save the lost, in re
lieving every form of suffering and
wee, m going down to the depths, in go
inc to the very limit of humanity, as it
were, and in benefiting every portion of
mankind. It men will do this, we shall
not have an aee of controverMes ; wc
shall accomplish the great wmk which
shall make the Church of Christ a bles
sing to the end of time. Bishop Sim
son. The business of making men happy
that are not happy doesn't lie half so near
the consciousness of men as it onght to.
If it is in the power of men to touch the
higher nature, and to rouse men to cheer
to good nature, to hope, to good wilt, to
mirth, to courage, then this is a part of
their Christian dutv. Beccher.
