The B. & M. Co. have issuad a new
advertising map of their road and con

and San Francisco.
The Omaha Tribune is authority for
saying that Hon. E. II Cunningham'

Iowa and Nebraska, has sent in bis re

A locomotive hunting the Midland
Pacific It. R. was brought to the west
side of the river at this place this after
noon. It was suggested by some of our
citizens that the Midland Road would
reach Lincoln by this route on time to
secure the bonds. We suppose the lo
comotive was crossed here for the reason
that they have no method of crossing it
with safety at Nebraska city.
y reference to the published Council
proceedings it will be seen that the
Mayor has been authorized to collect ail
moneys unlawfully paid out by the City.
It is believed that this will call in the
"extra service" money heretofore voted
and paid out.
Ex-Mayor Lazenby assures us that he
never signed any blank orders during his
term of office, and that he has a com
plete private record of all orders ever
signed by him. It is undoubtedly very
fortunate for the city that Mr. Lazenby
took this precaution to guard against
We witnessed a practice game between
the 1st and 2d nines of the "Antelopes"
last Saturday, and we suggest that they

play a good game. .

amount of printer's ink.
Mr. Frank. Carruth, has just shown us
some Photographic viows that he has
been taking, of Plattsmouth and vicinity,
that are excellent. We could recognize
every building and street, tree fence, &c,
even to the most minute object, as easily
as if we were looking at the original,
instead of a picture. Carruth is a No

will do well to patronize him-

of time than any man in the west.
The Ashland Times claims that a por
tion of the cattle recently shipped from
this city were purchased in that locality.
We would not wonder at it. Cattle are
generally raised in the country, and we
believe Saunders county is one of the
best counties in the State for stock grow
ing. The following is told of the proceed
ings in a westtrn Police Court, to wit :
A son of the Green Isle, or some oth
er country, having partaken of too much
pressed corn, becomes the object of sym
pathy of Marshal of the city of
who takes him in charge, con
fines hifli in jail until morning, when he
is brought up before his Hon- ,
Police Judge, who proceeds as follows,
to wit: Mr. Marshal, have you your
witnesses in Court ? Yes, sir. Is the
prisoner present ? Yes, sir. Witness
will come forward and be swern (which
is done in form). After the examination
of the witness, His Honor turns to the
prisoner with the following: You arc
charged with drunkenness, are you guil
ty or not guilty? Prisoner answers yes,
and is informed that he is fined one dol
lar and costs. He forthwith pays tho
$1 fine (all the money he has) the costs
being remitted, be is sent on his way re
joicing. II. C. Yanllorn, Esq., one of the re
liable men of Liberty precinct, called on
the Herald to-day and renewed his
subscription. We are are always glad to
mset such men as Yan Horn the riches
of the State depends upon them.
Most heartily do we welcome the May
number of Wood's Household Magazine
Wo hardly recognized it as it entered
our office in its new spring clothes ; but
while admiring the color and quality of
its dress, wo were delighted to discover
that it adorned our old friend. The mi
urovements which have followed thick
and fast in this Magazine, show the en
terprise and success of its publishers
The heavy paper is a great addition as
well as the cover, and its typographical
appearance is unsurpassed.
Its contents are unexceptionable, and
among its list of contributors are some
cf the most noted writers of the day.
We do not understand how Mr. Wood is
able to do so much for so little money
nevertheless we are very glad to ac
knowledge his achievements. The Maga

The English Colonists who arriived in
this city Saturday bad most of their
possessions in coin, and a large quantity
of it passed into the vaults of Claik &
Plunimer, for which they paid out
green back?. It is not a bad thing for
Nebraska to see this class of people,
with their British gold, coming into the
State and settling. We have room for
one hundred thousand honest, industri
ous nun, but not a foot of room for
loafers and vagabonds.

The new City Council are going to work
like they intended to fufill the require
ments of the people who elected them in
straightening out the finances of our city,
and gettins things as near into "ship
shape" as possible. Notice was given
last Saturday evening of an orpidance
requiring that all evidences of city in
debtedness shall be presented to the City
Treasurer within a given time, and by
him endorsed as correct, otherwise it
cannot be collected. This will give us
the amount of our city indebtedness,
an I will detect all bogus orders and other
evidences of indebtedness, should
any be outstanding.

Our article of last evening in relation
to the missinjr city orders brought to
light two more of them in the hands of
Joseph Sehlater. Esq, After reading
the article it occurred to him that he had
purchased a couple of orders from ex
Recorder Cooper. He hastened to ex
amine the Nos. and amounts, and dis
covered that they were in the list adver
tised for by Treasurer Hobbs. He paid
Cooper the cash for these orders, and at
the same time Cooper desired him to
find sale for orders, telling Sehlater that
he could have all that he could get over
fifty cents on the dollar, and that he bd
quite a number of them to dispose cf.

Mr Editor : At a meeting this
morning of the officers of the Ca. s
County Bible Society, a committee was
appointed to wait upon the Rev. Dr.
Kincaid and inviti him to deliver a lec
ture in Plattsmouth for the benefit of
the Bible Society. The committee vis
ited the Doctor and were entertained lor
about an hour and a half with the ruosi,
interesting conversation it has been our
privilege to listen to for.a lor.g time.
The Reverend gentleman, although
over 70 years of age, is remaikabie for
acutencss of intellect and wonderful ac.
curacy of memory, and his conversation
is brimful of graphic descriptions of men
and things seen and heard and learned
during a Missionary life of forty jeais
in India, chiefly in Burma. The Rev
erend Dr. promised to give the commit
tee a definite answer this evening, and
if his stay here shall give hiiu time to
deliver a lecture, I will undertake to
promise the cititizens of Plattsmouth,
the most interesting and instructive
lecture that it has been their privilege
to li.-tcn to for m;ny years.

III' N't' THE RECORDS.
In the light cf recent developments
would it not be advisable for our city
authorities to hunt the records very
sharply ia regard to the order business ?
We know not what tho custom has been
in regard to issuing city orders during
the past year, but if it has been similar
to that adopted by the County Commis
sioners, there is the greatest necessity
for a thorough overhauling of the rec
ordsand not only the Records, but
every account that has beoa presented
during the past year. The custom has
been for the President of the Board of
Commissioners to sign a large number of
blank orders, and for the County Clerk
to fill up and issue the orders at his
leisure. If this plan of signing blank
orders has been followed by the Mayor
there is no tilling, -yithout a complete
and thorough investigation, how much
our city may be in debt. We hope this
matter may be attended to at once, for
delays are sometimes dangerous.
THE CITY ORDER ItCSIN SS.
We desire to do ex-Mayor Lazenby
the justice to say that we were mistaken
yesterday in saying that he had paid a
premium of ten per cent, to obtain pos
sessioi of a certain city order. Ex-Recorder
Cooper is the man who paid the
premium ; and Mr. Lazenby 's only con
nection with the transaction was in fur
nishing Cooper with an order to ex
change for tho order in Mr. Buttery's
possession, and in receiving in lieu there
of the order for which Cooper paid the
ten per cent, premium. Our informant
of yesterday was mistaken, and we hast
on to do Mr. Lazenby justice in the mat
ter. The "Ilurrricane" Engine, No. 1, of
the B. & M. of Nebraska, came out of
the shops yesterday morning, having
been put through a general repairing for
some two months past. She looks bet
ter with the change. The "American
Eagle," the first locomotive landed on
the west side of the Missouri river in
this State south of the Platte river has
received thorough repairs in the Compa
ny s shops the past winter, and as "Ful
ler says, she can now get away with
anything in the west" She looks like
a new engine and is reported to be supe
rior to any on the road. She has had
her motion changed and new tire put on
her wheels (her drivers are now six
feet full) beside many other improve
ments. With such men as Christiansen
and Eagan in the shops the Company
have no reason to fear the result of their

The following is a brief synopsis of
the labors of the Executive Committee :
Said committee met pursuant to no
tice. It was
Resolved, That Cass County Bible So
ciety employ an Agent to thoroughly
canvass said county.
Oa recommendation of Rev. Wm.
McCandlish, D. L. Mason was chosen
Agent of the American Bible Society.
Said Agent was instructed to close up
all business with Branch Societies, and to
bring in full leportof their transactions ;
also to endeavor to visit every family in
Cass county make stated appointments,
take collections, donate books to the des
titute, and to strive to awaken a general
and fervent iuterest in the Bible Cause.
In filling said appointments throughout
the county, lie v. Alley, Rev. Cameron,
and Rev. Maxfield, gave efficient aid, as
also did Rev. Mann, of Rock Bluffs.
In making this canvass it became nec
essary to purchase an outfit for Agent to
transport himself and books. Through
the kindness cf Messrs. J. R. Clark and
C. H. Parmele, a sauitable conveyance
was furnished said Agent in behalf of
Cass county IJiblo Society. This Society
being in arrears to the Parent Society,
and out of funds, renders the act of
these gentlemen very commendatory.
Mr. D. L.' Mason, Agent, was hired lor
two months afterward extended one
month longer at a salary of $50 per
month. At the end of this time Agent
reported work not finished. Consider
ing the financial embarrassment of the
Society, Executive Committee thought
it not wise to continue Agent longer in
the field. Upon this decision Agent
Mason generously proposed to give two
weeks more time in order to complete
the work, if the Society would pay his
expenses- Committee agreed to ibis
proposal and work went on.

A GOOD TIIIXG.
Our attention has been called to a new
book for children just published, by J.
S. Goodman & Co., of Chicago, Illinois,
and to be sold by agents only, entitled
"Brisht Side Stories," Gems of Beauty
in Prose, Poetry and Picture. It is
really a magnificent collection of juvenile
Literature. Under the guise of pleasant
stories just long enough to hold the at
tention of tho young reader unweariedly
to the end, as much valuable informa
tion is gained as would require many
weeks of hard study, from ordinary text
books. These beautiful "Gems" of Prose.
Poetry and Picture, have been gathered
with a discriminating hand, and no child
can read them without becoming wiser,
better and happier. A child's book is a
new featuro in the subscription book
trade, and opens up a new field of use
fulness to agents.
We cannot doubt that both publishers
and agents will reap a rich harvest, as
every parent will cordially welcome such
wholesome mental and moral food for
their children, and we presume agents
will find that parents generally are more
ready to purchase good books for their
children than for themselves.
A. Deyo has been nominated by the
Republicans of Saunders County as a can
didate for the Constitutional Convention.
Deyo is a good and true man, and the
Republicans 'of Saunders have made
a wise choice.
We have long thought that a volume
of short but authentic and well-written
sketches of the most eminent self-made
men of America telling not only of their
success, but also in what way and by
what efforts this success was attained
could not fail to possess an absorbing and
universal interest, and must prove an
exceedingly popular and successful book.
Such a volume now lies on our table
from the press of E. Hannaford Si Co.,
(Publi.-hers of FIRST CLASS Sub
scription Books, Cincinnati and Chicago)
under the title of "Great Fortunes,' and
How They Were Made : er, The
Struggles and Triumphs of Self-made
Men, By James D. McCabe, Jr." Itis
a really elegant octavo of G33 pages, il
lustrated with thirty-two remarkably
well-executed wood engravings, from
original designs by the talented young
artists George F. & E. B. Bensell."
"Great Fortunes" is a book that ap
peals to all c'asses, describing the career
not ouly of our merchant princes and
heavy capitalists, but also of leading in
ventors, publishers, editors, lawyers,
artist?, preachers, authors, actors, physi
cian?, etc. It abounds in history, an
ecdote, sketches of life in various parts
of the country, reminiscences of dis
tinguished and eccentric men, accounts
of curious and ceb-brated inventions
and narratives of intense aud determined
struggles crowned by the most brilliant
triumphs. It commends itsolf, likewise,
as a work possessing great practical
value, as a means of instruction and self
help to all its readers. JIoio great for
tunes were made, and how fame and
fortune were won, largely make up our
author's interesting narratives.
It shows how poor boys, without
friends or influence, have risen to the
front rank of American capitalists ; how
a fortune of forty millions was won by a
poor schoolmaster ; how thirty millions
sprang from ona thousand dollars saved
by a determined young boatiunn ; how a
newspaper which was first published in a
cellar has become the wealthiest journal
in the land ; how a cabinet maker's ap
prentice made the world his debtor, am
built up an immense inanufactuiin
buMiiess, which is now conducted in the
largest business in the United States
how the invention of a poor schoolma.-t
cr unexpectedly thrown out of employ
ment, created one of our most import
ant uat'onal industries, and many States
i;ch and powerful ; how a printer's ap
prentice made his way in the world, and
became the head of the largest publish
ing house m America.
It shows how a poor cattle drover be

It is not a very difficult task to construct
a railroad when the parties have plenty
01 money to carry out any thing they
may wish to accomplish, but it is a diffi
cult matter for a few men who are un
known to the great financial world to in
augurate a railroad enterprise and com
plete it without aid from any of the
great financial channels from whence
money is generally obtained for such
business. In this view of the case, we
must do our old friends "F. A. White,
Esq., President, etc.," and Hon. J. B.
Bennett, Yice President of the Midhnd,
together with Dr. Converse, the untiring
superintendent, the justice to say that
they have accomt.lished a work, which,
under the circumstances, demonstrates
their ability as financcers to be equal to
that which, under more favoiable auspi
ces, might construct a grand Union or
Central Pacific line. The Midland has
at last reached Lincoln, and we say all
praise to ike men who have pushed it
through to completion, despite the jibes
and sneers and counter work of many
who should have assisted them. We
only wish we had more such men as
White and Bennett and Converse in
Nebraska, that we might have more in
ternal improvements in the State-

We clip the following item from a re
cent St. Joseph (Michigan) paper:
"On Thursday afiernoon two freight
trains collided near Michigan City, and
about ten cars were smashed to pieces
and the engines entirely destroyed. Mr.
Theo. Pew, of this town, and his favor
ite horse were on the train going West.
Mr. Pew was uninjured and the horse
escaped almost miraculously. The car
which contained the horse was broken
to pieces and he was thrown into the
next car among a number of stoves,
where he stood quietly until Mr. Pew
went to his rescue, when he was taken
out without even a scratch."
The horse referred to is the famous
stallion Dan O'Connell, which Mr. Pew
was bringing to this city, and we are hap
py to state that notwithstanding the nar
row escape spoken of above, both horse
and owner have arrived here safe and
sound. The horse is a Black Hawk
Messenger, and is said to be a trifle the
fastest trotter of anything in these
parts. Tho horse can be seen for the
present at the residence of Joel Parcell,
Esq. We are are glad to note the arri
val of this elegant horse, as improve
ment in the breed of horses is becoming
a feature of Nebraska stock growers.

glorious union by the propitious opera
tion of railways? '
The greeting of the Revino is duly ap
prfciated, and we are "free to inform"
our friends of the Review that the Her
ald will only call on it to catalogue this
one as the "future great city of the
West." In the language of a very nu '
merous class of people, " all others are
base institutions. " We are glad to
know that so high an authority as the
Review "concurs heartily " in our belief
that the B. & M. is the most important
line of railroad in the West, and that
Plattsmouth is the future great city of

We spent a hour in our neighboring
city of Ashland yesterday, and were re
ally surprised at the many improvements
witnessed, notwithstanding wc have been
a careful reader of that excellent sheet,
the Ashland Times. We found the
Sncll House in line running order, and
all branches of business seemed lively.
We had no time to call on our many per
sonal friends, or the many friends of the
Herald, but hope to vu-it them again
at no distant day,
This portion of the "footstool" is be
ing visited with refreshing rains at inter
vals. This has been a much needed
"article" in these parts for some time
past. Crops and garden stuff has suf
fered for want of rain, but now they
ook bright and fresh, and sweet odors
from bud and flower fill the air. Not
withstanding the dry weather and severe
winds of a few weeks past, we phrophesy
a bountiful crop of grain, vegetables and
fruit this year.
PLATTSMOUTH MACHINE NIIOl'S.
We passed through the above named
shops, Wayman & Curtis proprietors, a
few days since, and wc are compelled, in
justice, to say that they have a yery
complete set of apparatus and are turn
ing out some of the finest woik we have
peen in the west. Among the most im
portant articles of their manufacture or
one which sce;:.ed to us most important,
wis a new cultivator, a thing of their
own invention, and upon which they ex
pect to apply for a patent. It has many
advantages over any other cultivator we
have seen, one of the most important
of which is that they can sell it much
cheaper than any others of a similar de
sign. The "old reliable" Forgy is mak
ing some of those far famed plows which
Fitzgerald prizes so highry, and every
thing about the shops seemed to be in a
flourishing condition. The farmers of
Cass should patronize Wayman & Cur
tis, for by that means every dollar of
their monoj is retained in the county
and paid out again for the necessaries of
life, and then they can furnish you abet
ter article at lower prices than you can
purchase of eastern manufacturers. If
you buy a plow of them and it docs not
operate properly or anything gives awa',
they can always make it right, while if
you get "bit" in an article manufactured
at the east you have no recourse.
Mr. T. Clark, of Weeping Water pre
cinct, called on the Herald this morn
ing, and informed us that a new post
oflice has been established between Elm
wood and Weeping Water called Mt.
Hope. That region of country is set
tling very rapidly, and new offices are
being established quite frequently.
A paper called the 7bZacco Plant has
recently started in Liverpool. It must
be a good paper to get "puffs" in.
Of the numerous immigrants that pass
through our city to settle up the fertile
plains of Nebraska, we notice that they
are all well fixed for their new enter
prise possessing good wagons and plea
ty of household goods ; but at the same
time, their horses and cattle generally
are in very poor condition which proves
the tact that the hast is not the country
to fatten stock.
