A eorrc--jMiiKL-nt of the Omaha Herald
writing IVmu this city takes occasion to
in.ult the furcign lorn citizens of Nc-bra-!:i
in the proi-scst manner, lie tle-noaiifi-.'.tes
tl'.oni as the "ofT-scourings of
foreign countries !" 'Refugees from
justice, leserter.s exiles, iaupers ; arid
l.cer-Mcat.-.l firtii'ners ;" and proclaims
that "Americans ?ha?t rule Nebraska."
Nov, it appears to us that no man with
a- thiwllc fill of common sense would
he rrnr'fy of Fpcakin;? thus of :i class of
people who, notwithstanding they may
have national cu-tom.s whieli do not eo
ineide with the id .a? of many Ameri
cans, arc acknowledged by all to be
honest, industrious sober and frugal,
and who arc a.s goo 1 citizens as even our
own American born. How much sense
is there in speaking of these men as
"des'-rier.-, exiles, ai.d refugees from
justice," when if th"rc is a person in all
the foreign emigrants who could pos.-i-1
3y hi to Jeuouainaled, it i.s in coiise
i'ieneo of kU adhere nee to the very
principles of liberty which we as Amer
icans are most proud of. Shame upon
the man who claims the name: of an
American who will thus wilfully in.- ult
a class of men who come among us as
citizens, because of their admiration for
free institutions. These foreign born
citizens to-day have more of the true
American spirit in them than the man
who would thus insult them.

Crete, August 15, 1 S7I .
"A Lincoln pnpor says our Crete correspond
ent. "The Ancit it." has bon tdetl nperin
ter.detit of a Sun lay School at Crete. Ye Au

2ow Hathaway, that is a pretty "ket
tle of fi.-h," is it not ? What have I
i-ver done to you? What have you
"agin" me? Do I owe you anything?
(That last qr.er tion is a little reckless.)
You came mighty near breaking up the
Union Fall nth School here. Tho good
mothers are coining the old hen, we read
about in the good book, on the ir human
chicks. They are gathering them in,
with anything but com pi uientary re
marks on the innocent head of the "An
cient." They call me "pettifogger,"
and they spell lawyer (liar) and soon.
Th i dickens take you and that Lincoln
filler ! My mammy, when she sees that,
will look over her big specs and letting
her hand rest lightly on the head of her
youngest (his natno is John and he is in
the ice business), will lcmark without
rising, what a LLs.-ing it is, Johnny,
that you are not in that "tow head's"
Sunday S hoo!. And John will remark
to the "Am i ntV brother, who is in
the raMroad business, and he and Jidin
will make invilinis remarks. The
Deputy says I am "an old fraud," that
I am coming the high "moral dodge"
on the Cretan., an if" I write any more
about his slt:i.:g on the "bung hole of a
barrel" h j will "put a head onto me."
Now, Hathaway, I ask you in all can
dor and fairness, in ju-tice to myself and
grand-father, not forgetting po.-terity,
that has dori j so much for us, to imagine
the "Ancient" in the full pLntitude of
a clean .-hirt and collar, and spurs if you
like., standing up before his school, and
asking some four yenr old scion of a no
ble ol.i Louse, who was Cain's wife? I
don't Know what that scion would say,
but I do know v. hat the Deputy would
say if ho was Ai?!ant Superintendent.
It would Le something like this:
"Look h?re, 'Ancient,' you cl I I'.jJ, you
can't tell yourself." And the "Ancient"
would retaliate by saying, "he a.-ked
that scion for information" or uiight I
a.-k some other descendant a simple and
touching question, for irr-tance, or for
any other reason, say I should a.-k him
thusly: "Look here, Theodore Everett,
in embryo, arguing from an csthctical
stand point, and analytically deducting
from analagous reasoning a per-incuni-bent
conclusion, necessarily deciding in
f'erentially, that 'too much of a food
thing' never wa3 enough." Now T. J.,
aforesaid, don't you think that if a
shower bath is a good thing for cleanli
ness, (and cleanliness is allied to Godli
ness) that a comfortable swim is an im
provement, and consequently it is nec
essary for every boy to be a Free Will,
Sunday, Confederate Daptist, say? 1
dou't know that that boy (T. L'.j would
utterly destroy the broadest part of his
nether integuments, searching for ideas
and language with which to convoy his
conclusions; but I know pretty near
what the Deputy would say if he was
Assistant Superintendent of my school,
lie would address mo after the following
style: "Now, 'Ancient,' ju.-t you buy a
cake of soap, go down to the river, get
into the river, and use that cake cf soap
vigorously and determinedly on your j
carcass, and you will save some little '
boy's pantaloons." Now, Hathaway,
you know how it is yourself. I might
Lave been cut out for an S. S. S., but
somehow I'm badly "botched'' in the
making up and au action tcill lie (for I
can't) r.gainst you and that fuller, if ever
you locate me in some such office again.
You have excited the people, who now
look upou Die with distrust, because they
don't know where you will put me next,
perhaps "in my little bed" who
knows ? I want no ofiieo, neither Church,
nor State. All 1 want, is just what I've
got, viz : a law oEce, one month's rent
paid in advance, and a good client.
AuorsT, 21st, 1871.
I Lave just returned from Omaha and
will Gnish this rambling letter. Of my
trip I can say that it was rendered ev
ery way pleasant and agreeable on the
B. & M. to the Omaha Junction. Con
ductor Parkhurst did the agreeable, the
road wr.s in first class order, and that cs
Et-utial pari cf the journey, viz : time,
was made. Too much credit cannot be
given-ibr the manner in v. li'-'u the l..
M. R. R. is conducted. The economy
and perfect system is commendable.
There seems to be perfect harmony in
all branches, and this is due to the un
tiring supervision and care c f its chief
officers. In fact, you cannot tell where
to find Col. Doane his offi -e is all along
the lnie. The- le.-t way t'j find him is :
stop at some station until he comes along.
Oar officer here at Crete we propose to
keep, as we cannot spare Rickford,
Fisher or Cooper (C. R.). They are
.. i .i-i
young, sterling men ; and anyti.mg a.i 1
everything in their departments cf th.2
R. & M. arc faithfully atten Jed to.
With Morse, Shcppord, Darkhur,t, the
serious and solemn Rishop of the Ex
press, and our valiant Drake-man, we
will get you through by daylight. I in
tend going west on the road soon, when
I will drop you a lino of some length.
Crete has been busy. We had a circus,
an 1 we had watermelons one cent
apiece (I mean the watermelons, not the
circus). We had chuck-a-lutk, seven
up, and grand larceny, wild elks, and
Rilly Goats and "benzine" CgTT.s, fools
and foot race-:. Old times in Rlattsuiouth
revived, and the Deputy was on the war
J. Dan Lmer put in an appearance.
Dan is a good square m in, full of energy
and pluck. Would there were more
like h;m ! D. W. L-.-wi, was here, look
ing around. Ask him what ho thinks of
Crete. Dr. John Rlack passed through,
giving the Ancient the "cold shoulder."
If he does it again, hostilities will com
mence. New buildings springing up on
every side, new fa es on the streets, and
the Ancient has got a new pair of breech
es with pockets in the sides, and carries
a borrowed watch (the fellow who loaned
the watch i.s a comparative stranger).
Some of the "special fund" contributors
are here, and more are expected. To
complete the city appurtenances we want
keno and a faro bank ; who speaks first?
Some fellow says "keno," and they all
say "You know low it is yourself,"
don't it ?
While I am writing J. W. Conn has
come in, on his way home. He has been
"romancing around," likes the country,
and he, too, is heavy on Crete. Come
up here Hathaway and get a good square
meal. I will give you sweet potatoes,
raised by Uncle Wi'iiam Wilson, out
here on the Blue, that will weigh two
pounds a piece.
Claiborne gave me a call. lie, too, is
looking cut for a "roosting place." I
hope Dick will succeed. 1 am looking
for Harry Robinson ; when becomes the
Deputy and I will give him a wanning.
Excuse my delay in writing, and believe
me still "Thk Ancient."

Watty Morrison, a Scotch clergyman,
was u man of wit and humor. On one
occasion he entreated the officer at Ft.
Dodge to pardon a poor feilow that was
sent to the halberts. The oilicer oiiVrcd
to grunt his request if he would in re
turn grant bim a favor lie would ask.
Mr. Moni-o:i acrced to ili;-, and the of
ficer immediately demanded that the
ceremony of baptism be performed on a
puppy. The clergyman agreed to it,
and a party of gentlemen assembled to
witness the novel baptism.
Morrison desired the officer to hold up
the dog a- was necessary in their bap
tism of children, and said :
"As a minister of the church cf Scot
land, I mu-t proceed according to the
ceremonies of the church."
"Certainly," said the .Major, "I ex
pect ali the ceremony."
"Well, then, Major, I begin by the
usual question : Do you acknowledge
yourself the father of this puppy?"
A roar of laughter burst from the
crowd, and the officer threw the candi
date for baptism away.

For what are these child-angels made,
that are sent down to this world to bring
so much love and rapture,, to go from us
i n such bitterness and mourning? If
we believe in Almighty Love, we must
believe that they have a merciful and
tender mission to our wayward souls.
Trio love wherewith we loved thcui is
something the most utterly pure and un
worldly of whieh human experience is
capable, and we must hope that every
one who goes from us to the world of
light goes holding an invisible chain of
love by which to draw us there. Some
times I think 1 would never had my
little Daisy grow older on this earth.
The little chill dies in growing into
womanhood, and often the woman is far
lesb lovely than the little child. It seeni3
to me that lovely and loving childhood,
with its truthfulness, its frank sincerity,
its pure, simple love, is so sweet and
holy an estate that it would be a beauti
ful thing iu heaven to have a band of
heavenly- children, guileless, gay, and
forever joyous tender sprina blossoms
of the kingdom of light. Was it of
such whom lie had left in His heavenly
home our Savior was thinking w hen He
took little children up in His arms and
blessed them, and said, "Of such is the
kingdom of heaven ?'' Jfrs fitoicc.

Cupt. David H. Todd, brother
Mrs. Lincoln, whose death in Alabama
was recently announced, was a Captain
in the Confederate army from Loui-iana
and his youngest brother, Sam Todd,
was a private in the Crescent regiment
of New Orleans. Alluding to the latter

Shiloh, about ten o clock on Monday
morning, when the army under Rcauro
gard advanced toward the river, and
was met by Ruell's reinforcing column,
young Todd was killed- A bullet pierc

field to be buried by Grajil's army. He
was quite well known in the U'e.-toru
