T"j to ho hour of roin;r to press we
are unable to get anything later from the
preat destruction at Chicago, than what
appears in the morning papers, except,
thit it is now sai 1 the water woiks arc
not destroyed. There is no doubt that
th'3 place where proud Chicago stood
bi.-t Saturday is now one vast lie'd of
desolation, and that little more than the
adies of the great city now remain. Aid
Las been tent from all the cities of the
west, to relieve t'ua sulk-rings cf the
houseless and homeless.
A few of the Democratic leader? of
thif country are endeavoring to capture
the German vote of the Coun'y by a
very flimsy trick, that of placing a Ger
man on their ticket and asking the Ger
man vote in consequence. The idea
that intelligent men can be induced by
this fliincy means to vote against a prin
ciple is too absurd to scarcely need men
tion. The men who take the German
voters of this County for ignoramoses,
t'ntein ft; wbeodled into this way o'
doing, will reeoivc a just rebuke through
the ballot-box to-morrow. Dj tliezo
tricksters su po.-e they can induce in
telligent Germans to inaugurate a war
fare on naticnnlity, just suth as not only
the Germans but all other foreigners
justly condemned a. few years ago when
Knownothinsrism was in vogue? Per
Imps these demagogues can induce iu
t'dlisrent men to commence a warefare
which must prove disastrous, and per
haps not. W e shall see. We have too
inuch faith in the intelligence of the
German voters to believe so yet.

Kn. Herald: When I told you that
I would give you the news of t'us locali
ty, I did not think it would be so diiLcult
to find something to write about. I am
unable to rec how you keep your paper
so full of valuable local news. But
every one to his trade.
We arc credibly informed that there
was a serious accident near Palmyra, in
Otoe County, on last Sabbath. It ap
pears that some boys went out to hunt
deer. They succeeded La killing one,
and wounding another one. The wound
ed deer, however, made its escape to a
neighboring canebrake. The boys went
home and got seme of their neighbors
to go with them after the wounded ani
mal. Those who had guns surrounded
the cane thicket, while Mr. Charley
Yial and others, entered the thicket to
scare out the deer. Mr. Yial unfortu
nately wore a w hite hat, which one of
the boys saw, and supposed it to be the
deer's head. He aimed his gun, as he
thought, low enough to hit the animals
body, and fired, the supposed deer fell
lie called to his companions that he had
shot the d!cr, and ru.-hed to the spot,
When, who can imagine his horror and
amazement, when he taw his neighbor,
Mr. Yial. lying before him, with a hor
rible wound in his rinht arm. The ball
passed through the right elbow joint,
shattering the l-on s very badly.
Dr. W. S. White, of Palmyra, and
Dr. J. W. Thomas, of Weeping Water,
were called to dress the wound. They
think they can save the arm.
The old maxim, no great loss without
some gsin, appears to be true in this
case, for the boys say they will never
hunt again mi the Sabbath day. May
they ever keep their vow, is the prayer
of your liU'nblo servant. L.

Mr. Editor: Having lately become
a citizen of your Slate, and not having
got connections formed with the news
paper world, I find myself sadly behind
the times as regards State aud county
politics ; and would feci under oblia
tion for information upon a few points.
Fiom information received, it appears
that your laws permit the holding of a
certain kind of tinecure. Is it so?
The thing is said to be in this form : A
man was elected to the office, of County
Clerk, took the office, and with part of
the income, hires another man to do the
work, and pockets the . If such
be true, is our progress backward or for
ward ? From just Mich things the peo
ple of the oi l government of Europe
are just now shaking themselves lice.
Bat then, admitting the th-ng to be
true, there ma be a justifiable reason
for it. Perhaps the people, knowing
the great executive abilitiesof that man,
placed him in that position, giving sala
ry enough to hire a substitute and pock
et a suiplus. If I am right in this
guess then I gue.;s it is all light. They,
the people, are the best able to I e judg
es of their own ignorance and his abili
ties. Ana granting that all this is just
so how very grateful the people afore
said ousrht to be, that providence, or
somebody else, sent this man among
them! This Cinoinnatus I As for me,
I would manifest my gratitude in a still
more substantial form. I would pro
pose that he be elected grand head cen
tre, hub, spoke and tire, of the county
government. You know the various of
fices included therein, place them all at
his disposal, and call hirn multum in
pirro, and he, with his great abilities,
would find men to do the work under his
superintendence. And if a modicum of
the different salaries should happen to
slide into his pocket, what of that?
Sure such talents ought to be recorded
on enduring mud.
Some people are so impolitic as not to
see any beauty in such a state of things ;
and they would rather vote for any other
man to hold the office, as for instance
that man that now does the work for
pirt of the income, than to vote for this
modem Cincinnatug. But it is plain such
people do not fully appreciate the privi
leges with which they are blessed.
In happy England such things have
been done to perfection. Town clerk
ships and other such things frequently
run in the blood of particular families,
like woodon legs and bad characters
But the blood is purely partrician, the
families rich, and plebiau talent is em
ployed to do the work. His late very
Koyal Highness, Prince Albert, was per
haps, the greatest sinecuiist in the
country, holding, among others, the of
fice of Chief Hanger of Windsor, For
est, Chief Hat-catcher of the Uoyal
Palaces, and Culouek-ies," and General
ships, and so forth, with very acceptable
salaries to each.
I admit that this is somewhat difler
tiit from our sinecurist. But the differ
ence is in favor of curs. He, not hav
ing half as good a chance, has still suc
ceeded in getting in the thiu end of the
wedge. And if he be let alone, he will,
no doubt, rear a noble structure. For
O'.k, I sry, let him alone severely.
Truly Yours,

Eaolk, C ss Co., Neb., Oct. Gth, '71.
Mr. Hathaway,
Dear Sir: I have been a resident of
Tipton Precinct, for more than a year
and the greater portion of that time, a
reader of your live, little paper. But
there is one thing that I am astonished
at, and that is, during the whole time,
T hive not heard one word from Eagle.
Now I do not consider that your fault;
but the fault of the residents of Tipton,
who neglect to place before the world
rhe inducements that the natural loca
tion of the place hold out to those seek
ing homes in Nebraska. Geographically,
we are located in the southwest part of
Cass County; or to be more exact, in
Town 9, Ilange 10, and about equal dis
tance between the B. & M. and the M.
V. It. Us , or about 8 miles from each.
For country, we have a high, rolling
praiiie, whose soil cannct be surpassed
for productiveness, even by the rich
bottom lands of Illinois and Iowa. The
crops are more than an average here this
year. Coin being of the bc.-t quality,
and yielding from forty to seventy bush
els per acre. Wheat and oats of the
best qualit', but not so large a crop as
would be expected from the amount of
straw. Potatoes, the best quality, and
yield large. Homesteads all taken, but
the B. & M. U. 11. Co., who are offering
their lands to settlers, at prices ranging
from eight to thirteen dollars per acre,
on the ten year credit, and twenty per
cent, lower on short time, for cash. For
markets we have Greenwood, on the B.
& M., and Palmyra, on the M. P. R.
B., about equal distance, being about
eight miles to each place. Both bid
ding fair, in time, to make thriving
business towns. Taking into considera
tion the facilities, we have for stock
grazing, and the price of lands together
with our loeation, there can be no place
that can offer stronger inducements, to
those wishing homes. Politically, Tip
ton is sound, casting at the recent con
stitutional election, almost a unanimous
vote for the new Constitution. Uelig
ously, the people are about the same
that is found in every new country,
laboring under the disadvantage of a
new country, such as want of ministers,
to preach to them, and suitable places to
hold public worship.
There is a strong educational spirit
manifested by the people, in establishing
school districts, and building school
houses. All in all, Tipton is as desirea
blc a place for a man seeking to build
up a home for himself, as could well be
wished for.
Ilcping to soon hear from sonic ons
whose interests have been longer identi
fied with those of Tipton, than my own
have b:en, I clo.:0. A. !! P.
We publi.-h an article to-day calling
upon our people to give aid to the suf
ferers by the fire at Chicago, Since the
article was written, we have peon a sub
scription paper which is in circulation,
and being signed very liberally by our
business men.

Dear Editor : Hast one ray of pity
in that great heart of yours, not already
in lively exercise for the toiling thous
ands of Nebraska's hardy yeomen?
Then let us foul the soul-cheering influ
ence of that sympathy which can flow
from no other source save from the per
ennial fountain of "our weekly news
paper." We have often realized the
fact that there is a kind of jxircntal
breathing toward us from the sanctum
of the Herald, when perusing its pages
week after week, especially when worn
with toil rnd weary with care. We are,
at the present writing exceedingly toil
and care-worn almost discouraged.
Before we left the East we had made up
our mind just how we would arrange
our business in our new home in Ne
braska. We thought to have a little
field of wheat, some oats and barley, and
a small "patch" of corn enough of
each for bread, feed and seed a couple
cf cows to furnish us with (strawberries
and) cream, butter for our bread, and
milk for our "mush" a small "patch"
for potatoes and "truck" a small pas
ture, meadow and orchard these, with
horse stable, aud sty for the pigs tim
ber, and plenty of good water we
thought would supply all our wants and
be to us a sufficient store of earthly
bliss. We even went so far as to draw
a plan of our homestead. Here we had
timber and water, there the meadow and
pasture here we had upland, there bot
torn here's where we built the house,
and fixed the garden and orchard we
had this part rolling and that level.
With these plans all arranged in our
mind, we crossed "Old Muddy" at
Plattsmouth, and "rolled out" for
the valley of the Blue. We had not
the least trouble to find and secure a
claim that just filled the bill. Every
thing moved on as pleasantly and smooth
as the waters of our beautiful river,
with the goose bird at a delightful atti
tude. Often the past season, aa we sat be
neath the old elm at our cottage door,
and looked out over the fields of golden
grain and tasseled maize, have we con
gratulated us upon the possession of so
goodly a heritage. We have often
wished Uncle Samuel would make us a
call and see our little eighty acre home
stead, now we have it improved, and
give us a chance to thank him for the
generous gift. Dut, dear Herald, we
have found that there is something to do
on a homestead in Nebraska, besides
sow the seed and sit in the shade and see
the crop3 grow and mature. ' There's
harvesting to be done, "you bet," and
there's just where our 'bubble burst,' and
hero's where we want your sympathy.
We have not been as foolish as that fel
low we read about who pulled down his
barns and built "bigger" and then told
his sotd to rest aDd take it eay. We
Clled the old barns and new ones too,
yet there is not room enough. Look at
tne corn with the ears so far nn the
sta one has to have a ladder to get
them ; then our man wants more wae
it is such hard work to pull the potatoes
out of the hills. Our little "shavers"
tip the basket on its side and roll the
potatoes in it with the cant hook, and
cfien cry because the potatoes are too
big to go into the basket. Patience?
Ila! Patience is no virtue here. Job
may have had a few boils, but he never
had a farm that produced such prodig
ious crops he could not take care of
them- Perhaps you think our case an
exception, but it ain't ; it's just so every
year, and the same with nearly every
man in the Blue valley. To ba sure
there are some men too lazy to sow, and
who don't half cultivate what little they
do plant ; of course they get a small
crop of grain lut the weeds! Oh ! the
veeis! The soil will not lie idle, if they
don't give it grain to grow it will grow
weeds. We thought the soil would get
reduced after a few years, but it's no
such a thing ; the oftener and deeper
we plow, the greater the yield of every
kind and best quality of produce. I ex
pect you will say we are an inveterate
grumbler. Who can help it ? In tlse
East we had to work hard to get enough
to keep soul and body together, and here
it is harvest, gather, dig and pick for
three months every year, and when
done, we have heaps upon heaps, like
Sampson's Philistines, which he put to
the sward with the jaw bone of an ass.
Then just as we get seated at the desk
to write to ye Herald, here comes one
ui;n who wants to buy potatoes and
corn, another wants wheat and cats,
others hay and bailey, &c., &c. And
when we proposed to go to Plattsmouth
for a car load of lumber for a new house,
and a new "hat" for our better half,
she suggests that "we go and buy a few
good cows and some pigs, and stay in
the old 'dug out' another year." She
thinks the cows and pigs will pay be ter
interest than a new house. What strange
ideas some women have ! We have
come to the conclusion that "there is no
peace for the wicked" nor rest for the
We have got about through gathering
in our crops for this year. When done,
we are going on a regular buffalo hunt.
We shall see Bed Cloud, Waterloo.
Napoleon and Arapahoe, and a little of
the world in its native beauty, and wili
write the Hesald all about the sights
we sec. Yours, Auaz.
The world stands appalled by the ter
rible conflagration that has swept away
the proud and beautiful city of Chicago.
A few short hours have passed since
sho was the acknowledged queen of the
great northwest. Her wealth and pow
er extended over the entire world. She
stood as a monument to the power of
wealth, cnerg3r and public spirit, stand
ing upen her oicn JuunJaliun built by her
own hands. She was a little world of
herself. To day she ia beggard a fear
ful calamity has bumbled her to the
dust. Her cry for help is heard aud
answered from all the world. Thank
God for the generous impulses of human
nature! Our national firmament h; a
been robbed by tin fire fiend of one of
her brightest stars. Where i? the
American who has not pointed to Chi
cago as a monument of American In
dustry. A sad and gloomy darkness
shrouds our land ! Chicago belongs to
history ; but her people live. Shall we
sec them die, when it is in our power to
save? No! this is not human nature.
God made us dependent. There is a
fellow feeling for those in distress.
Every dispatch is freighted with the
good and cheering news that this town
and that town and that town are con
tributing to suffeiing humanit- send
ing forward money, clothing and provis
ions to the one hundred thousand home
less and destitute people of Chicago.
Will Plattsmouth stand by, an unmoved
spectator no willing hearts or hands
to lift the burden fioin our suffering
brethren in Chicago? If so, will an
avenging, all-wise God stay the fire
fiend from wiping this unworthy town
from the face of the earth? Great God !
are there no generous impulses in the
hearts of our people ? Can we not re
jpond with our mite just o:ie car load cf
provisions, if no more, just to take the
curse off. We are not impregnable
against fire. How soon may we call for
help with none to pity. Z.
Llternl Drilrnriion of the City.
Elsewhere we publish a dispatch of
yesterday morning relative to the de
struction of Chicago by fire. Since that
we learn from Mr.. Geo. Munday, mana
ger of the Western Union Telegraph at
this place, that the city is literally de
stroyed. The fire has already laid waste
almost the entire business portion of the
city, on both sides of the river, and at
3 p. m. to-day was raging with unabated
fury. The Court House, the Sherman
House, and all that region of the city
had been swallowed up by the fire-fiend ;
the banks were all gone, the waterworks
were destroyed, and the latest word was
that powder was being deposited for the
purpose of blowing up bui'dings to en
deavor by that means to check the
spread of tho flames. A prominent
citizen of Chicago estimated the dam
age, at 3 clock to-day, at ($500,000,000)
five hundred millions of dollars. This
figure, of course is overdrawn ; but
there is no kind of doubt that the busi
ness portion of the city is literally de
stroyed. A well-made violin contains more than
fifty different pieces of woods, the woods
being three : maple, red deal, and ebo
ny. The wood must be thoroughly sea
soned, especially the red deal ; and the
only artist of modern times who is said
to counterfeit the works of the f reat
Italian makers M. Yuillaume, of Pa
ris has done so mainly by a most care
lul selection of materials. M any a roof
and panel from Swiss chalets have found
their way into his workshop. Be the
train ever to good, the material must
have undergone the Mow action of time.
