The Omahsi Tribune and Republican
says that sonic of tlio nicuibers of the
constitutional conveution are en deavoring
tonanipulate the convention in their own
favor as candidates far Governor. We j
cannot agree with that idea, fur there i
is certain! in man in that body of men j
who were clectc 1 solely for their merit,
hu would so fir debase himself as to i
attempt any such action, for the simple j
leison, if no other, that it would guar
antee the defeat of the constitution Ly
the. people and thus all such little
schemes would come to an untimely end.
HOW I.O.XU W1I.1. IT T.tlii:.
We hear the above- question asked
almost daily in regard to the time
necessary for the Constitutional Con
vention to omp'eto its labor- The
present indications arc that it will take
at loast four weeks, and perhaps longer
to thoroughly digest the vat amount of
matter that must necessarily come before
t!c convention, and from which they
will ho r-alltd upon to select such choice
1 .it s as arc best calculated to nourish
and strengthen eur State. Wc have
full confidence in the men who have
been selected for this important work,
and believe that not an hour will be con- j
m:ui eel in useless delate, or that they j
will set a day longer than is necessary to j
accomplish their work. We elo not
agree with those who think that a couple
of Weeks is sufficient, time to prepare a j
Constitution. We believe it to be a 1
short sighted policy that would present ;
a poor document to save a lew dollars 1
expense. iet us nave a wen uigestcu
document, if it takes all summer to get
it ready.

The reports of the U. S. Signal Serv
ice Corps, as published in the Omaha
journals, arc of immense importance to
the communities in the latitude where
the Ovc observatories are stationed ; but
we believe that if those journals would
exhibit a little more enterprise, and cn
yiige the services of some icientific
gentleman to deduct the inferences which
the observations indicate, thousands of
farmei.s and others, would be greatly
benefited, and their journals sought for
by a class to which the present publish
ed observations arc, for the most part,
unintelligible. It appears to us that
there is no use waiting for the Washing
ton despatches predicting the probable
state of the weather, when Omaha en- j
terprise could so easily finish the desired
information. Will not our friends of the
Ihrnhl and the Tribune t& Republican
arrange this matter for the good of all
their readers?
- The proceedings of this society, which
commenced its exhibition at Omaha day
before yesterday, wc find in the Omaha
papers this morning, together with the
awards of the committees. The report
"is too lengthy for us to p jblu-h, but we
make the following extract from the re
port of the committee, which speaks in
high terms of Mr. Ilesser, of this place :

Flowers would respectfully report that
we have examined the flowers on exhi

would say that we experienced not a lit

that were satisfactory to ourselves, in
many instances, so well were the differ
ent c!a:ms contested. The plants were
generally in line condition, showing a
skill in their management, that does
great credit to thi florists of Nebraska.
We found five hurdred and seventy
.'even entries. The list of awards will
show a respectable variety. Our time
was too limited to enable us to notice at
length the different varieties of the re

should have been done in justice to the

great difficulties. While we have reason to
congratulate the society on its success,
and feel that, the interest manifested be

The botany of Nebraska is bjT no means
limited. We have found in the county
the following :
Black, burr or jack, white and red
ak, cottouwood, haekl erry, black wal
nut, ash, lynn, white and shell bark
hickory, soft, sugar and silver leaf maple
mulberry, water, red and white elm,
coffee bean, black and choke cherry,
black haws, red cedar, box elder, and
seven varieties of willow, black and
honey lo-ust, will grape, green briar,
wild choke cherries, black raspberries,
straw berries, and shew berries.
The prairies are covered with blue
I stem grass, porcupine grass, and wire
grass in siuau patencs.
The weeds most troublcsom to farmers
arc fox tail or fire weed, wild buckwheat
heart's ease, carpet weed, tumble weed,
wild morning glory, burdock, sand burr,
cockle burr, rag weed, wild pulsy, &c
These weeds are all easily subdued, by
dilligcut labor for one or two .seasons. '

The following from the Mitchell Co.
Press may serve as a warning to the vast
brigade of potatoe-bug destroyers
"airs. Ilinkly, residing in the east part
of the town, was taken violently ill !a?t
Tuesday, and grew much worse yestcr
drry without the cause of her sickness
being discovered. Last night Dr. Nich
ols was called and discovered all the
symptoms of poisoning by the potatoe
bug virus. JShe was perfectly blind, had
excruciating pain through the upper
part of the chest, spasmodic contractions
of the muscles of the throat, so that she
could scarcely swallow. He put her at
onco upon an antidote, and himself and
brother labored two hours with her, and
succeeded in giving relief. She is com
fortable this morning. This should
serve as warning to all who handle pota
toe bugs. Their virus is as poisonous as
the rattle snake."

What a strange disposition is that
which leads people to say "hateful"
things for the mere pleasure of saying
them ! You are never safe with such a

pleasantly, out will pop some underhand
stub which you alone can comprehend;
a sneer which is masked, but which is
too well aimed to be misunderstood. It

some little secret opinions confessed in a

5Uur3 on Women.
The Elgin (lib Gaz'tte has the fol
lowing article, which it would be well for
thousands of young men and old ones,
too, for that mutter to commit to mem
ory :
Of all the evils prevalent among young
men, we know of none more blighting
in its mora! effects tliati to speak slight
ingly of the virtue of women. Nor is
there anything in which young men are
so thoroughly mistaken as tho low esti
mate they form of the integrity of wo
men not of their own mothers and sis
ters, but of others, who, they forget, are
somebody else's mother and sisters. As
a rule, no person who surrenders to this
debasing habit is to be intrusted with
any enterprise requiring integrity of
character. Plain words should be spoken
on this point for the evil is a general one
and deep-rooted- If young men are
sometimes thrown into the society of
thoughtless or lewd women they have no
more right to measure other women by
what they see of these than they would
have to estimate tho character of honest
and respectable citizens by the develop
ment of crime in police courts. Let our
young men remember that their chief
happiness of life depends upon their ut
ter faith in women. No woildly wis
dom, no misanthropic philosophy, no
generalization can cover or weaken this
fundamental truth. It stands like the
record of God itself for it is nothing
less than this and should put an ever
lasting seal upon lips that are wont to
speak slightly of womn.

'The New York Herald thinks that
everything looks couleur de rose for the
Democracy since Dayton and Harris
burg have come up to its quasi Republi
can ground, and in the kindness of its
heart toward the Democracy, it now fa
vors them with a candidate in General
Sherman. This is coming it rather
strong, and we cry a halt. If we have
to swallow the new platform, we must
nut bo expected to swal'.-'W a Republican
candidate in the bargain. "Poco-a Po
eo," or you will make the dose too
strong. If there are mild Democrats who
yearn after Republican principles and
candidates, they know where to find
them on tli3 other side. True Demo
crats have need to be fed on more con
genial and wholesome food. If our
Northern fiiends Kvon't even let Jeff.
Davis talk, we of the South beg to be
excused from voting for the Devastator
who '"marched to the sra," and who
"made a solitude, and called it peace."
We reckon that the timid policy course
will prevail, yet it is refreshing and use
ful to see true men bravely breasting
what it is improperly called a "depart

for it advances to a REPUBLICAN
POSITION because it is believed that
it is one necessary to command success.

Kits or Truth.
In a recent number, the Denver Xcics,
in speaking of the independence of news
papers, makes the following pertinent
and eminently sensible remarks:
"In pursuing a certain Hue of policy, in
advocating any great principle, in cxpos
iug any overshadowing wrong, in any
bold and uncompromising expression of
opinion, a newspaper is sure to make
enemies. It is sure on the other hand
to make friends. A newspaper cannot
be neutral. It must have opinions ; it
n ix uiid to express mem. a i-.e puouc
expect it and demand it ; and respect
and fear those expressions. They criti
cise less, however, no matter what a
journal may do.' Editors soon learn to
be abu-ed and become accustomed to it.
It is seldom they receive praise. They
are damned if they do, and damned if
they don't, and so expecting to be
damned any way, they go straight on in
the line cf duty, regardlers of what men
may say, anl determined only to do
right. That man, or that body of men,
who expect to crush out a paper that
has stood up fearlessly for the best inte
rests of the community ; that has never
hesitated to defend the right and de
nounce the wrong ; whoc inllucnce has
ever been for the improvement of so
ciety and the development of material
interests, will fall. It is impossible.
The task is as hopeless as it is revenge
ful and foolish. The cry of "Stop my
paper," is as ineffectual in checking the
career of an independent journal as
would be a command from the same lips
to stay the course of the sun. A paper
is true to the principles of honor, up
rightness, and the common food, will
neither be crushed nor crippled by any
opposition which a bold and manly course
may excite. It has been tried aud failed
too often."
A correspondent of the Tribune had
an interview with Jeff. Davis at Colum
bia, South Carolina, a few days ago.
The ex-Confederate chief carefully
avoided politics, but gave it as his opin
ion that the negro race is dying out in
the south, and will ultimately disppear.
He did not think they were generally
thrifty or inclined to accumulate prop
erty, though he mentioned one of his
own former slaves who now owned two
plantations in Mississippi, and last year
raised 2,100 bales of cotton. Davis is
still popular with the people, and espe
cially tlie"vouien of the South. Of the
latter the correspondent writes :
All through the South the women
cherish a love for tho "lost cause" with
a pertinacity that seems like a species of
insanity, and the earliest instruction they
give their children is to reverence the
deal Confederacy, its flag, and its he
roes, and to hate the Yankees and the
very name of the United Slates. Even
now, when six 3-ears have elapsed since
the end of the war, these fanatics will
not allow their children to play with the
children of Northern peoplo, and a
Southern women who ventures to asse
ciate with the hated Yankee is denounced
and ostracised by her friends as a rene
gade. With what ardent love ought we to
regard the word of God as our enlight
cuing instructor and regulator. It is
necessary to receive, retain and improve
it as a powerful means to preserve us
from fleshy lusts, which war against both
bod' and soul. But terrible and fatal
snares are the flattering words and looks
of unchaste and light women. It is i:u-po-sib!e
to avoid destruction if once we
are entangled by them. And it is shock
ing that so many indulge themselves in
a crime so infamous and destructive.
Ladies like compliments as children
do bonbons. They will take them till
they can take no more ; but if ever so
small a one goes to another, oh, how
they long for it !

The very thought of it counts. In
these days if a man has anything that
he wishes to exchange, be it his proper y

that he will make the fact known through

If Hogs are to e sold at low prices,
what chances are there for any profit to
the producer?
To this we reply, the fattening of the
Hog. even at the lowest price, will re
sult in a splendid business lo the farmer
The Corn crop is everywhere admitted
to be immense, and will necessarily be
sold at a low price, and the most eco
nomical way of getting the crop to mar
ket, as is well known, is to feed as much
as possible to the Hogs, drive it through
on the hoof.
Every producer and intelligent farmer
understands perfectly, and acts continu
ally upon the fact that one bushel of
Corn properly fed, and with good care
for the Hogs, will make ten pounds of
gross Pork. From this admitted fact w
deduce the following :
Corn fed out at 12 cents per bushel
will fatten hogs at li cents per pound
Corn fed

hogs at 2 cents per pound

Now, compute what a 250 pound hog
will cost r.t a given rate for stock hegs.
A stock hog weighing 150 pounds,
bought at say 0 cent-!, will equal
One hundred pounds weight added on
ten busheN of corn, at 25 cents, f 250.
Total value of hog would be $11.50.
This would make the animal cost just
4 3 5 cents per pound, aud the farmer
has sold his corn, in this calculation, at
25 cents per bushel.
We confidently believe that there will
be ample profit to the farmer the
present year at low figures of Hogs;
and it adds another powerful argument
to sustain the positions we have taken.

The argument in the MeGehan mur

special to tho Gazette from I.cbonan
says Clement? L. Yalhmdiiigham. one
of the counsel for the defence of Thomas
McCehan, accidently shot himself to
night at nine o'clock, at the Lebanon
House. He was in a room in company
with Governoi McBurney, and while
showing with a pistol bow Myers, the
murdered man, might have s'h t himself
the pistol was di-char-v.f, the bail enter

is not known. Surgeons are now mak

Lebanon, dated 11 o'clock, which says
Mr. Vallandingham was vomiting,
which was regarded as an unfavorable
sig nantl one of hi 7-hysicians said there
were indications of internal hemninrrage.
Drs. Seovide and Drake ceased their
fruitless search for the ball about an
hour after the accident. They then
closed the wound, and placed the patient
on his right side, where ho lay, as white
as the sheet upon which he rested. He
was calm and collected.
Cincinnati, June 17.
Mr. Yailandigham died at eighteen
minutes before ten th's morning. He
went down very rapidly after ten o'clock,
having no pulse scarcely after that hour.
Dr. Dawson, of Cincinnati, arrived ai
three o'clock, but was too late to do any
goo-l for the dying man. Judge Hagres,
his law partner, from Dayton, reached
Lebanon this morning with other per
sonal fiiends, who wore with him in bis
last hours. MeGehan, in the prosecu
tion of whose ease he lost his life, was
taken from the jail this morning to his
bedside, and shed tears as he beheld the
dying friend, who had appeared during
the progress of the trial to summon ail
his enersry and legal ability in his de
fense. Mr. Follett made bis argument
for the State yesterday, and was to have
been followed this morninst by 3Ir. Milli
ken, and it was expected Mr. Yailandig
ham would commence his argument this
evening or Monday morning. Judge
Pope, before whom the trial was prose
cuting, adjourned the court until Mon
dav. Mrs Yailandigham started for Balti
more last evening, called there by a dy
ing brother.
Mr. Yallandigham's body will be taken
at once to Dayton, reaching there about
3 o'clock.
Cincinnati, O., June 17.
There has been much sorrow manifes
ted here to-day concerning the tragic
end of Yallandighain, and it has been t3'
no means confined to his political friends
Persons who have differed with him,
and animadverted severely on his course
during the rebellion, have expressed no
less regret at the terrible calamity which
has befallen him, than have his politi
cal associates. News concerning his last
hours has been devoured with avidity.
Newspaper reporters who came from the
scone this evening, have been uilligeutly
sought for more detail.- than have thus
far been published. It appears when
the pistol was discharged. Mr. Y. was
hardly aware of the severe natuie of the
wound, as he walked around the room
awhile before lying down. Gov. Mc
Burney, alarmed at the sudden appear
ance of a tragedy, rushed to the adjoin
ing rooms, and at once summoned aid.
As soon as persons came, Yailandigham
iaid it was a foolish act, and later adver
ted to it as the most reckless act of his
life. Though he seemed to be conscious
that he was badly hurt, he appear 1 de
cidedly hopeful. During the early hours
the Rev. Mr. Hak-hr called to see him
and Yailandigham, taking him by the
hand, said, substantially, he had too
much faith iu the Calviuistic doctriue to
14 V
belicTC he would not get safely through
tl ii misfortune. Once he told the sur
geons to take care of the pain and he
would manage the rest. Wlien impre-s
ed Willi the approach of dissolution, he
was calm and met the news of his condi
tion bravely. After JLr. Revets arrived
from Dayton, he soon had the room
cleared, and when no one was present
intimated to 3Ir. Yallandighaui the
very serious nature of his wound. The
patient, seeking for something on which
to build a hope, reminded the doctor
of two bad ca-sses of injuries not fatal,
known to Loth, and asked if this were
worse than they, to which the reluctant
reply wa-. possibly not. The doctor then
told Mr. V , who was suffering fiom pain
that they would have to administer medi
cines of a sedative nature, and suggested
that if he had anything to say, he had
better communicate then. Y. then con
vened with the doctor concerning pri
vate matters, giving directions in regard
to his bu-iness; after which medicine to
relieve the pain was injected by hypo
dermic process. Afterthis there was no
time when he was not under the influ
ence of opiates, and that effected some
what his sensibilities. He nevertheless
appeared to keep possession of his facul ties
to the last. At 3:30 o'clock he
seemed to be dying, aud his friends were
called to the bedside. From that time
he raj idly sank. The pul.-atiors at the
wri;t : ji: -eared to have ceased, though
he was remaikably calm so much so,
that Dr. Drake said he w; s tl e coolest
man under such circumstances he had
ever seen. He still showed occasional
signs about the face of agony. As death
approached, his face wore tin ashy j ale
nes4 his last words were a request for
ice- aud medicine to aliay hi pain. In
the last moments his face indicated great
physical suffering. At eighteen arimites
before ten this morning he died. His
son Charles, seventeen years old, was
with him from last night until he died.
One of his nephews aud a nephew of bis
wife was also present. Gov. MclSuiney
was with hiLi constantly from the time
of the acci lent until his death. The re
mains left Lebanon at 2 p. m. to-day for
Cincinnati, June 17.
The Times and Chronicle this evening
publishes an interview had between Mr.
Yailandigham and one of its editors, on
Wednesday, in which Mr. Y. said, there
can be no more politicaleampaigns fought
on issues of the past few years. They
are dead, and if the Democratic party
refuses to move to the front to accept
the new cid-u- of things, it will simply
pass away, and some other parti made
up of earnest progressive element of
both the old parties will take possession
of the government. When a--kod if he
did not think the campaign of '72 would
be fought on present issues, he said that
it may be undertaken by our party, but
it will fail. A year ago Grant gave
promise of his intention to lead the Re
publican party into a now departure, and
lie would have done it but a gang of old
politicians at Washington held him back
and scared him with gabble about de
feat, until he went sqivire back into the
oldiuts. Grant is an honest man, and
would do right if politicians would let
him, but that they do not want to do.
He took the back track on the San Do
mingo question, in which, apart from
the corrupt means used, he was clearly
right. 1 tell you, sir, annexation of ter
ritory and the control of all the outlay
ing fragments of the continent, is the
destiny of the American people. Y'e
shall have San Domingo, and Cuba, and
Mexico, and all the rest; mark that.
We mi-:.:cd the greatest chance we ever
had, in not getting Cuba during the
Spanish troubles. We could have had
it then lor the 11 ere asking, tind in a few
years we would have been owners of the
richest and most productive part of ter
ritory in the woild. Why, they u.-cd to
talk about me raid call me a disunionist.
I tell you, sir, earnestly and honestly,
that 1 never was a disunionist ; that I al
ways did believe, and now believe, that
this Union will be perpetual, and extend
ed until it embraces the continent.
His denial of disunion views Mr. V.
repeated, with marked emphasis, iu re
ply to a remark of his interrogator, that
he could not see now the hatred exhibit
ed towards him by the dead cause, De
mocraev. in that party. He smiled and
said, "Why, what can I -lo ; the Repub
lican party won't move forward, it wants
to stick to its old elothas, and my best
hope is to get the Democracy to pu.-h to
the front ? However, there is 110 telling
what three hundred and sixty five days
may bring foith : and of one thing I am
certain : if the Democratic party fails to
become the patty of progress and ad
vanced ideas, aud I, from conscientious
convictions, decide to act with any other
political party, that other political party
will never stop to inquire what niy past
political record has been. Parties don't
manage things in that wav."
