At tho risk of offending the writer,
we make the following extract from a
private letter received this morning.
' The letter contains a renewal of sub
scription to the Herald, and a request
that it be not stopped if, perchance the wri
ter should neglect to pay up at the ex
act time when his subscription is due,
and then says :
"I must admit, although differing
from you politically, that I admire the
manly defense you have made through
your paper of Gov. Butler, when he is
deserted by the weak-kneed portion of his
party, who seem to be numerous at the
very time when he needs assistance and
had a right to expect the support of hU
party, and especially those who support
ed him for Governor. It it only necex
saiy, sir, to give those that talk most
and blow loudest half the chance that
Butler has had to steal to find out who
is the thief. I, for one, hope that But
ler may come out vindicated and clear of
the ch&rgos preferred against him prin
cipally by his own party. '
The above was written by cna of the
solid men of Cas county, and one who
dares to defend the right as
he believes. He is, as his
letter indicates, a Democrat, but
he is "a man for a that" and does not
like to see a fellow man trampled into
the earth because he excite i the jealousy
of small fry politicians or because he
may have chanced to over step the
bounds of propriety upon oiue occasion.
We can assure our friend that the Her
ald will ever be found battling for what
it believes to be justice and right, no
matter if all the hosts of the earth may
be on the opposite side. We have dc
feaded Governor But lor, not against any
wrong he may have done, but againsthc
wrongs that others have sought to do
him. We have said there was no evi
dence upon which to convict of a single
crime, and we have published the evi
dence in full that others may know upon
what we base our a.-sertion. We are
aware that the tide of public opinion is
now against Governor Butler, but we
risk nothing in saying the time will come
when the people of Nebraska, regardless
of party, will say as the Herald says
now, that Gov. Butler should have been
acquited without a moment's delay.
If there is any class of men or papers
that we heartily despise it is those mis
erable petty politicians, slaters and
demagogues, time-sarvers, who are al
ways on the alert to pander to a
diseased public sentiment when the fair
name of a fellow man is being trampled
under foot. Nebraska is not entirely
destitute of such characters, and they
may be known at the present time by
ascertaining who are the men that cry
out against Gov. Butler, "crucify him,
crucify him ;' he is "convicted before
the people," and these same fellows have
taken the greatest care that not a single
"people" should hear a word of The
evidence except as it was garbled and
distorted to suit their own side of the
question, and they even raised the cry
of "convicted before the people" lone
before a lino of evidence had been given
before the court. Shame upon the men
who have so little manhood, as to cry
.vi.u . ;cuun wing wun noming Duta
public clamor to justify it. Why do not
those journals that cry out that Gov.
Butler is "convicted before the people"
have the manhood to publish the evi
dence in full as taken before the Senate,
and then let the public say or not he is
"convicted" or at least give the "peo
ple" a chance to form an intelligent
opinion. This cry of "convicted before
the peple" arises from the same ource
and is of a piece with the action of the
House when they voted to impeach
Governor Btler with the evidence (?),
so-called, taken before the investigating
committee lying upon the secretary's
desk unopened, and not a man outside of
the committee knew a single line of
what was contained in the so-called evi
dence. These men stood rsadv to con
vict Governor Butler of ' high crimes
and misdemeanors" upon clamor alone.
We envy the position of those few noble
minded men who dared to stand up in
the face of the wild howls for impeach
ment and vote against preferring articles
until they had heard the evidence, and
whose names the Omaha Herald (un
wittingly that he was doing then a noble
service) placed in its columns in bold
Taoed letter. The "black list" of the
Omaha Herald will be looked upon with
pnue oy uie men whose names appear
therein long after the truckling fchysters
who sneer at them have passed into ob
livion. We admire a man who dares to
do right, even in the face of public
opinion, even as we despise the roan who
will sacrifice justice to tickle the public
mind. The evidence, exactly as u.ed be
fore the court cf impeachment, and ad
mitted to be correct by both parties, has
been published in full in these columns,
and we call apon these men who cry out
"crucify him" to show a singla point
wherein David Butler in "proven guilty of
a "high crime or misdemeanor." Point
out the evidence or else admit that your
cry is raised simply to further excite a
prejudiced public; prejudiced by means
of unfair public prints.
The following: words actually formed
the peoration of the counsel's plea of his
client in an assault and. hattery case in
Athens, Ala. : "Let the humble ass

tain's brow, but, gentlemen of the jury,
I say John Gandle is not guilty."

"Olivia" heard James Parton lecture
the other night, and her impressions are
thus set down : "By no twitching of
mu.-cle or spasmodic actions of the hands
did he indicate to those around him that
he was the matrimonial mate of 'Fanny
Fern ' On the contrary he appeared
remarkably young and well preserved
for one who, unavoidably, has had so
much experience, and if he was a single
man a large quantity of feminine ele
ment would have prostrated itself at his
feet. A slim, delicate man of medium
height stands before us, hair and beard
tinted by midnight dyes, a pallid, yellow,
waxen face, out of which peer through
spectacles a pair of tawny eyes that
gleam and pale like lambent flame un
derneath frosted glass ; whilst .'student'
is written all over him in characters as
plain as the noonday sun."

Prof. Struve, the distinguished as
tronomer, Pultowa, has been for years
watching the rings of Saturn ; and the
inner one of the three rings, an obscure,
partly transparent mass of what ap
peared to be vapor, has been seen to ap
proach the body of the planet and to
widen its distance from the other rings,
which seemed to be fluid in character,
or perhaps made up of myriads of small
bodies, moving together like streams of
meteors which supply the periodic show
ers. But durinr several months past,
this inner ring has fallen more rapidly,
and finally the attraction of Saturn en
tirely overcome the centrifugal force,
and it closed upon thebodyof the planet,
forming a belt, which was gradually dif
fused over its surface, so that there is
now no trace whatever ot the ring left.
Is this to be the fate of the other ring
or will they ultimately gather into satell
ite, as Las more commonly been sup
posed. iiualillrM.
The want of positively good qualities
is of less consequence than the presence
of positively bad ones. The most fasti
dious will find no difficulty in enduring a
man who is little skilled in the nice
formalities of the drawing-room and the
dinner-table. If buch a man is unob
trusive, he will pass very well, thvoh it
is certainly desirable that all sh-"M be
to a tortain extent prepared to act ac
cording to those Jaws which the mass of
refined society have found to be condu
cive to their happiness. Bur, no man
can expect to be much liked who is ad
dicted to certain habits of a conpieuous
kind, and direct tendency of which,
to iuspire painful feelings in those around
him. Such a man must be insupportable.
Where are l be Hoj nt Xijjht.
Fathers and mothers look out for
your boys when the shades of evening
have gathered around you! Where are
they then? Are they at home, at the
pleasant fireside, or are they running the
streets? If so, take care: the chances
of their ruin are many. There is scarce
ly anything so destructive to their morals
as running about at night. Under cover
of darkness they acquire the education
of crime; they learn to be rowdyish, if
not absolutely vicious; they catch up
loose talk, they hear Mnful thoughts,
they see obscene things, they be
come reckless ami riotous. If you
would save them from ruin, save them
from prison, see to it that night finds
them at home. Let parents solemnly
ponder over this matter and do all
they can to make home attractive for all
the children so attractive that all the
boys will prefer it to roaming the streets.
There is no place like home in more
sense than one certainly no place like
home for boys in the evening. Chicago
Little Sins.
There are two ways of coming down
from the top of a church steeple one is
to jump down, and the other is to come
down by the steps; but Doth will lead
you to the bottom. So also there are
two ways of going to hell ; one is to
walk into it with your eyes open few
people do that the other is to go down
by the steps of little sins, and that way
I fear, is only too common. Put up
with a few little sins, and you will soon
want a few more : even a heathen could
say, "Who was content with only one
sin ?" and jour course will be regularly
worse every day. Well did Jeremy Tay
lor describe the progress of sin in man :
First it startles him, then it becomes
pleasing then delightful, then frequent
then habitual, confirmed. Then the man
is impenitent, then obstinate, and then
he is damned." Young reader, the
devil only wants to get the wedge of a
little allowed sin into your heart, and you
will soon be all his own. jSevcr play
with fire never trifle with little sins.
At the press Forney banquet in Wash
ington, Senator Sumner related an anec
dote of Joseph Bonaparte when he first
landed in New York after the overthrow
of his family, which has never been in
print before: "When leaving France, he
sought a home on this side of the ocean,
and landing at New York, he looked
about for a soldier, a gensd'arme, or at
least a policeman, to whom he could ex
hibit his passjwrt. But he found nei
ther, and at last exclaimed : 'This u the
first country where I ever found myself,
in which I could not find the govern
ment.' "
At K tnsas City the other evening, as
Olive Logan was lecturing upon Charles
Dickens, she gave vent to her known
dislike of "limp-backed babies," and the
audience manifested an opposite senti
ment toward the little aneels. Just as
Olive had recited one of Dickens" choice
passages, the cry of an infant was heard.
"Take that person away," she exclaimed
angrily. Her hearers would not obey.
They hissed heartily, and refused to al
low the mother of the child to leave her
Riding in a Camp street car yesterday
an elderly lady, clad in a dress of classic
pattern and yellow flounces, was engaged
in caressing the curly head of a iod!e
dog. The operation was watched by a
dandiTy dressed youth, who assumed an
air of well counterfeited dL-gust. Evi
dently he wished to impress all around
hiin with the exceeding delicacy of his
manners and great refinement. Finally,
as if wiping to attract more attention,
he whimpered loud enough for the lady
to hear him : "It is something pleasant
to be loved. I fcish I were a poodle,"
and he looked impudeutly at the lady.

Mrs. Stanton is sharp, but she some
time "puts her foot in it" as awkwardly
as if she was a man. In her lectures
now-a-days she is asserting that the
Democratic party is a better party, has
mure love for justice, than the Republi
can party, and proves it by the willing
ness of that party to grant suffrage to
woman. It was the Democrats in Wyo
ming that pave woman the ballot. In
the same connection she points out the
lact that the women of 3'onnng voted
almost unanimously the Republican ticket
O, Mrs. Stanton ! Is that the way you
prove woman's inferiority by showing
that sh not on'y is ungrateful to those
who crant her favors, but that she natu-

SomeboJy says that a lady should al

for it in advance ?
