Seyeral papers in the ftate have mada
thcrnnelres pnrtioularly" uneasy about
"what somebody lias taiJ that Dr. Larsh
has dona. We bare watched this matter
somewhat carefully, and we GnJ that, so
far, nothing bat the bnoie old Omaha
Herald howl has been developed. Ve
hare this, and only this, to pay about
the matter ; if the Omaha Herald, or
any other growler, knows of anything
wherein Dr. L.ir.h has wronged the
State, let them particularize, and at
"once bring hiui up to tho rack ; but this
way of insinuating that a man lias com
mitted a wrong, and doing it in a way
that loaves hini no grounds for defence,
"because there is nothing really charged,
ir. one of the meanest things that a news
paper can be guilty of. Ve have no de
fense to make for Dr. Larrh we are not
sure that he either needs or deserves
any further than to ak for hini that
justice which every man under the gov
ernment is entitled tn, be b.3 of high or
low degree. The official nets of every
mm are public property; but because a
man holds an office it is no reason why
he should be proclaimed as a scoundrel
without an exhibition of the proofs. He
.should bo entitled to the i-atiie respect,
at least, that he would be as an individu
al, and the Mine evidence .should be re
quired to prove a man an ofllcial rasoa!
that would Le required to f-how that he
had eauimitted a felony. This custom
of howling about an officer simply be
taus he is an officer is reprehensible in
tha extreme, and it is about time tho
public condemned it arid demanded that
when a man or h newspaper ciies fraud
or wrong doing they should produce the
proof or be themselves branded as wi!l--ful
maligners of personal character.
Frcm the present appcaranco of the
Larsh controversy we are led to exclaim
that it'a all "bosh," and that Dr. Miller is
much more ready to cry out against Dr.
Lar&h for an imaginary evil than he was
or is against J. Sterling morton & Co.
for a fraud and a swindle which has been
rrovea in open court and pulsed upon
by a jury of their peers. Kither give us
facts or nothing. The people are tired
of this evt.-rlaning howling and asser
tloru without fiet. to p i'.-taniiate them.

We publish, to-duy, a lengthy letter
.written from this city t the St. Louis
Jirpullicoii, with the above caption.
The writer had a convr-t idea of the im
portance of the trade of the rcat north
wt, and the necessity of having St.
Louis interests puvh out railroads to
vat eh th o trade which is now going t
Chicago by the vaiious routes spoken of
in the letter, and which.roat h tthnt to
and take the rich tr-Ju which leeiti
i.!.wiirs to them- The writer
fctins to VavJ had what is known in this
locality s tlie Omaha and Chillicothe
llailrcjd in vk-w at th time he was
wri.jr., aud it is to this feature of the
..UeT that we desire to call the attention
f St. Louis iuterests. While there is
.- ques-tion but the Chillicothe Hue is an
important one to St. Loui, yet it uj
ears to us thit the line along the west
;lt.k of the Missouri river wouli be far
more o. The Chillicothe line would only
trike the trade of the great agricultural
,rgious went of the Missouri at a single
j.oint Omaha and that being the
- point of greatest competition with Chi
cago roads and of as little local freight
as any point in Nebraska ; while the
liue alonir the west bank of the Missouri
would reach the same point and contest
for the baiiie trade, while it would take
the additional trade of the great agri
cultural regions of Nebraska south of
the Platte river, crossing the 11. & M.
It. R. at this city, the Midland road at
Nebiaska City, the l. & Ft. Kearney
road at Crownville, and intersect the
Atchison and Nebraska road at Falls
City or llulo, in Richardson county. It
in a well known law of commerce, al
though ono which we cannot give a
proper solution ?f, that freights going m
any direction are seldom, if ever divert
d from their cours-o after crossing a
large stream; henco the Chillicothe
route would not catch a ingle pound of
Nebraska or other western freight,
while the line on the west of the river
would be in fair competitiou for every
thicg from the great weft. Freights
baring once 6tarted east on any oue of
tho gret lines mentioned in the letter
cannot easily be diverted, as St. Louis
merchants should well understand from
experience. They should also under
stand that it is only at riter lines that
freichts are diverted- As an evidence
of this, how much w-stern trade has St.
Ijoais ever been able to secure from the
line intersecting the Ii. & M. at O'.tum
wa? The ideas of the Republican cor
respondent are correct, and we hoje he
insy continue to agitate the people of
that city nutil thr-y are aroused to tho
importance of what they arc losing ; but
his efforts transferred to the river route,
will, in our judgment, be of far more
benefit to St. Loui. His letter has al
ready had the effect to call out a forcible
editorial on the subject from the Repub
lican. Let the people along the line of
the river (or Trunk) route aeit to lay
this matter propeily before St. Louis,
acd we have not a doubt but it will in
sure the building ot the road. Now is
the time to act.

men pres amd fkf.c speech.
nESPEuiA, Nov. 9, 1ST1
Dear Herald : Three of the most
prominent planks in our political plat
form arc : "A free press, free speech and
free soil." Here, upon the free soil of
Nebraska, we cheerfully grant to the
press perfect freedom, and claim at the
9ame time the right of free speech, oral
or written. If in the exercise ot its free
dom the press "steps upon our corn,'
we believe we have tho right to use the
pen and the press to express oar desire
for the reuiovai of is ponderous pedals
from our plantations. In the Uehald
of Oct. J9th, we read I'rofessor Butler's
"pencilings by tho way westward from
the Capital of Nebraska, to the stamp
ing ground of the buffalo." We give
the Prof, credit for a fair description of
the soil, grasses, wafer, timber, climate,
Ac" ; but wc do feel as though he was a
little ''heavy'' on our "bed linen"'
"biled shirts," and our "Nebrarka
brown fronts." I'ermit us to make a
few quotations from the Professor:
"We talk sometimes derisively,
about the makc-shlfts for houses which
we g'i le by the tents, cabins, framed
and finished with a single load of lumber,
dug-outs where the lay of the land favors
such a troglodyte burrowing, and espe
cially sod house?, Nebraska brown
fronts." Again, at School creek :
Hero is a railroad eating house and lodg
ing tent, lialt a dozen taria nouses in
tha distance, and four saloons, close at
hand tho creatures of a yetserday.
Wc saw two workmen, finding it hard to
be idle, and innocent, dead drunk and
others gambling." "Wc spread our
blankets in an old cattle car. litre we
uleep hard and coll, yet delightfully."
"Nobody in this western camping ever
complains of .soiled sheets, for no sheets
whatever are ever seen or thought of;
nor yet is a "biled shirt." "All bed
ding and linen are made of wool."
"Our cook is an African, His
crockery is all of tiu and he gives us our
coffee in a sort of pie-plates. Appe
tites, if not ravenous, would be fastidi
If the Professor had called at cither
of the half dozen farm houses he eaw in
the distance, at School creek, instead of
at tho four cm mills which have
sprung up since Mr. John Fitzgerald
left School creek, he would not have had
to beg the privilege of sdecping in the
old cattle car, or been obliged to assooi
ftvuYtf 'a'aVS'ttecn" rcceive.l ns coVdially as
he wjs at "Mr George Martins," on the
Platte, and he would have been as hos
pitably entertained. He would have had
the pleasure of listening to de.ighttul
music, from the piano or organ had
clean linen sheets, a good feather bed,
and a "biled shirt" if he had told the
lady of the house that ha r.eeica a
change. The coffee woull have been
served in goblets that would have ploaed
the most "fastidious," and given h:m a
"ravenous appetite. The "four saloons
at School creek" are tho only "grog
shops" between Crete and Denver City,
aad these will ' play out as soon as
'Pt " and "Hans." leave School
Creek for "new lettings."
Many of the settlers in Fillmore and
Clay counties have but just come to the
State. They have put up temporary
houses, to protect the "wife and wee
ones" from the storm:? of winter, intend
ing to build the coming summer. We
dislike to have eastern "biled 6hirt"
aristocrats, who "can't drink in our
young Hooker hopes," ridicule our In
diana soldiers' homestead," or its 14x16
house for honest, loyal, loving hearts,
dwell there as well as in the lordly man
sion of the Eastern nabob. Out upon

Butler, being a perfect stranger, wc can
onlyjudgs of him by the company we
find him in at School creek, and out of
respect, advise him to hasten home, put
a brick to his feet, take something hot
and go to bed. Wc have labored hard
for three years past for the settlement
and development of the southwestern
counties of Nebraska, and we get our
"back up" whenever Kastern people or
papers ridicule us or our neighbors, and
wo would suggest that critics use a little
discretion and moderation until the B.

port building materials and take away
our farm products. Then we should be

We believe that our friend, the edit
or of the Herald, must have been ab
sent from hii "sanctum" when the Pro
fessor's pencillings found their way into
the Herald, and consequently charge
the entire blame to its "devil."
We have inconveniences which vex us
exceedingly, in which wc most earnestly
deire the interposition of the men of
our State and the officers of tho Gov
ernment. We are comfortable, and
would be happy in our little sod houses
aud dug-outs, if we had a trusty mail ar
rangement. Our letters and papers are
delivered to Tom. Dick, and the devil,
after having be n "packed" all over the
northwestern States, and after having
tetn read by every sneaking greaser on
the journey, that can read. We re

Our first copy of the State Journal was

numbers are lost from the files, making
seventy-six pages of really valuable read-
ing matter and general intelligence which
we have lost through the carelessness of
mail agents. But this is not all. We
received our first No. of the Nebraska
Statesman June 4th, 1870, and have
never missed a single paper, every No.

From tho Lincoln Stato Journal,
The case of J. Sterling Morton vs
the State of Nebraska, involving the ti
tle to the Jitncoln saline lands, has been
fccided in favor of the State bv the
Ih-tnct Court. e are now told that
this is not the end. Morton is to appeal
to the Supremo Couit of the United
tates, it it tikes mm ten vcars to ceU
there, lhe Umaha Herald has been
trying to stuff Deonle with the idea that
Morton's claim is a just and equitable
one; that the beet interest of the State
would be promoted by a surrender of
title to Morton ; that the action of the
Radical authorities in holding the lands
for the State is highly injurious, by pre
venting the investment of capital iu the
salines. The fact is, Morton's flaim is
a huge fraud. It was conceived by
Black, Buchanan's corrupt Democratic
Governor of Nebraska Territory, and
through collusion with thoo immacu
late Democrats, John Candle Box, Cal
houn, ijuchanaii s Surveyor General ;
Andy Hopkins, his Registrar of the Ne
braska City Land office; and J. Ster
ling Morton, Secretary of the Territory,
these lands were fraudulently entered.
Thee Bcuioerarie efnoo holders intended
and attempted to sreal these lands, aid
the Omaha Herald is very much mis
taken if it thinks that lapse of twelve
year has so entirely obliterated all trace,
or recollection of these men and their doings-,
as to enable it, wi'.h all its boldness
and sagacity, to suevessf ully champion
the thieves and enable one of them to
reap the fruits of the Democratic frauds
of 18.08 and T.U.
The Herald says of this cae, in the
District Court, that "the evidence ac
quitted tbe plaintiff of fraud in the en
try, aud that the lands wo;e rogulariy
platted. Xc " It -w - -
is such a flagrant case that we are con
strained to say that, either through igno
rance or something wore-e, its .statement
in this case is untrue. The evidence
that dam us Surveyor Genend Calhoun
is in the fact that the lands were rot
regularly platted. The field notes showed
the lands to Le saline, but the township
plats constructed by Calhoun for tho
Land offiv-e, and which should have been
in accordance with the tkdd notes in the
Surveyor General's ofUce, showed nnlh-
iu(j conroring the salir:e character of the
land. This is a part of the documentary
evidence iu this case.
The testimony of Prey was, we are
informed, to tho effect "that he did not
know anything about the entry of these
lands in his name, until called upon by
Morton to transfer them to himself and
. ... r . i
company; that he uiu transier ttiem ana
received no consideration theietor.
Morton it Co. have stood tor several
years, througn tneir irauouieni ciaim, in
the way of the development ot these
salines, and no-.v we are told by the or
gan of the thieves, that this previous
lot of scamps propose to continue as an
impediment, until tlipy get to the Su
preme Court of the United States, if it
takes ten years. The interests of the
State may suffer or bo destroyed to the
value of hundreds of thousands of dol
Iars, and the Herald instead of. raising
its voice against the outrage, either ap
proves or is conveniently silent. How
much prospective salt is the considera
tion for all this lavi&h flow ol Hcr.ild
Dr. M. C. Cotton, of Nashville, has
been studying the peculiarities of rattle
snakes. He has had one in his posses
sion, c-oofincd to a glas case, since the
I5th ot May, and from that date up to a
few days ago, it has not partaken of a
particle of food, though it had been
tempted with uiice and other small ani
mals on which the reptile is accustomed
to feed. Ho thought it was a male until
he discovered that it had given birth to
seven young snakes, each from nine to
fifteen inches in length, md with a full
button on the tail, cleat ly refuting the
idea that thv"have to be frix months old
before the formation of the button. Dr.
Cotton represents that he once before
kept in a case a largo Mzed rattlesnake
for three years and nine months, and
that he studied closely its moods and
changes, ror nin months it did not
partake of a particle of food anl but
little water. It jdicd its skin twice a
year, a new rattle appearing at each
shedding, which explodes the popular
notion that but one rattle comes a year.

To the Editor of the IZejntblioin :
Silt: It has seemed to me that you
could not render ta your city of St. Louis
a more invaluable ervice than by getting
up and printing in your valuable paper a
map, if you plea.-e, on a supplemental
sheet, showing the various railway Iine3
from Chicago north of you stretching
out for the vast and growing trade of the
country to which tha beading of this ar
ticle calls attention, and contrasting it
with the feeble efforts of St. Louis to
grasp ami compete lor this valuable
trade. There seems to me no other wav
by which St. Lo
edue-i'cd up to the imperative necessity
of doing something mora than she has
yet done to control her legitimate share
of this trade, now vast, and growing
with wonderful rapidity. Such a map,
with a well-written article explanatory
of the gigantic efforts made by Chicago
to govern aud control the whole trade of
this country, would at a glance do more
to make St. Louis realize her noeds than
a thousand editorials on the subject that
few readers would comprehend without
such a man before their eves.
Being a St. Louisan and here tempo
rarily on business, it has seemed to me
that I might render to my city some ser
vice by cilling attention to this .ubieet
and making some sut'cestions.
Omaha is at present the great startircr
point for tho Slates, the territories and
the Pacific coast trade. That this trade
is regarded as important and valuable
is proved by the number of railroads
which Chicago has now completed and
is competing at Omaha fbr it.
Let us see what railroads Chieatrn has
laying their iron grasp upon this trade.
completed to Omaha, a:;d what other
lines urn being built to make shorter
Hues in her interest by tapping the Un-
1 ui (Omaha) Pacific railwav at F.irt
Kearney, and then let us see what St. !
T - .-ir . . i ;
juis'is duing to compete for ih great
ide of thisgrcat western empire, which
iiaue or tins great western eiupn
is growing and increasing in importance
wilh a rapidity that no one can fuilv
comprehend unless he travels throueh
the country and .-.ees for him-'tii.
To beirin with th-: roads now completed
from Chicago to Omaha.
1. The Illinois Central B. II. now owns
what is called the Iowa division of the
Il!irr:s Central railroad. If begins, at
Dubuque, runs West by Fairley, CVdar,
Iowa Fai's. Fort Doderc, Plymouth, and
to Sioux City on the Missouri river, and
then down the Mo. river to Omaha, but
has made a short cut-off from Missouii
Va'ley Junction out to Fremont, on the
Omaha Pacific road.
2. The Chicago and Northwestern
railroad, bccinnuig at .Chicago runs, to
Clinton, on the Mississippi river ctojm;!
'do, to Marshalltown, to Ames, to
B.iorishoro. New Jefferson, Dcnnison, to
Missouri Valley Junction by cut-off to ,
3. The Chicago, Bo. k Island and Pa
cific railroad from Chicago strikes the
Mississippi river at Rock Island, and
runs we:-t througn tow.t ireru noes
Island to Wiitoif; Iowa City, .darcngo.
l)es Moines, tho capital of Iowa, and
thence to Omaha.
4. The Chicago Burlington and Oum-
cy (this road and the Hannibal and St.
Joseph road) is the most formidable an
tagonist to St. Louis interests. This
road, as ail know, runs from Chicago to
Burlington in Iowa, with a main arm
running into Quiucy, in Illinois, crossing
the Mississippi river with a railway
bridge at each point. At Burlington it
assumes the name of the Burlington and
Missouii river railroad, and runs wtst,
in Iowa, through the towns of Mt.
Piea.sant, Ottumwa, Albia, O-ela, Al
ton and Bed Oak, to PLttsmouth on the
Missouri river, and thence up the Mis
s.ousi river .from Piattsmou'h seven
teen miles to Omaha. At Plattstuouth
this road is building to fort Kearney,
on the Omaha Pacific, which will give it
a much shorter line to the Paciiic coast,
than any of its rival Chicago competi
tors, ft has a laud grant which will
more than pay the who'e cost of the
road. It has now one hundred and
twenty miles of the road eompleted and
will be finished to Fort Kearney by the
first of January. 1872. It is tbe gov
ernment aid road that Mr. Stugeon of
our city was appointed government com
missioner to examine. The Quincy arm
of the Chicago, Burlingtoa and Quiucy
railroad crosses th? river at Quincy nd
connects with the Ilatmibal and St.
5. Tbc-r j is a railroad building from
Keokuk through the southern tier of
Iowa counties bordering on Missouri to
Nebraska City, on the Missouii rivor.
From Nebraska City a road is already
constructed to Lincoln, the capital of
Nebra-ka, where it intersects tho' Bur
lington and Missouri liver railroad that
wi'l be completed to Fort Kearney by
the first of January, 1ST2.
G. There is a railroad called the North
Missouri Central railroad being construct
cd from a point on the Missouri liver
opposite Quincy, through the northern
tier of Missouri counties to Nebraska
7. The Hannibal and St. Joseph road
which has been the great strong right
arm of Chicago, co-operating with tho
Chicago, LJui r.ugton and Quincy raiiroad
and the Michigan Central. At Cameron
on its main liue, it throws off an arm for
Kansas City; at St. Joseph, it throws
off an arm to Atchison, Leavenworth
and Kansas City by the Kansas City,
St. Joseph, Council Bluffs and Omaha
road, aud from St. Joseph by the same
road extends north to Nebraska City,
Plattsmouth, Council Bluffs and Omaha
At St. Joseph it is rapidly building a
railroad west to Fort Kearney and ex
pects to reach the latter point within a
year, when it claims that it will have
the shortest liue to San Francico. This
makes it of the vastest importance to
St. Louis that she owns and controls the
independent line into St. Joseph from
Richmond, and that it be not permitted
to pass into adverse hands.
From the foregoing it is seen what
powerful monied corporations are at
work sappinc this trad -s from St.. Louis.
What has sbe to oppose? Cau St.
Louis command the means? If so, how?
Something must be done. By a scratch
she out-numbered Chicago in the last
census. Can she maintain this suprema
cy? She cannot unless she is up and
doing. What must she do, what cau
she do, is the question that, every real
estate man, merchant, mechanic and all
who have nei welfare at heart should
be asking themselves? Will she imitate
the example of Cioeimra-!, tkat recently 4

voted ten mijlions, which she regarded
as a gift for railroads South, or will she
elo nothiug? or, worse than nothing,
break down the only interest that is
making a bold and manly fiaht for the
great trade we have called attention to
from the rsorth, Northwest, the tetrito
nes, the plains, and he Pacific coast?
It is understood that the North Missou
n rai'roaa nns succeeded in tormmg a
combination with the Pennsylvania Cen
tral railway, the most powerful railway
corporation m the country, with the
roots of its gigi-.ntic trunk planted into
Hie hearts ot the cities ot JNew lork,
Philadelphia, Baltimore and ashimr
ton, and its influence and branches, trunk
and arms, reaching into the very vitals
ot this country. It had come up to St.
Louis bv the St. Louis, Vaudalia and
Terre Haute railroad. It is understood
to have a coutroliing interest in the
Kansas Pacific road. To secure for St.-
Louis the influence of this powerful
corporation combined with the Kansas
Pacific and the Chicago, Alton and St.-
Lcuis are maiters of the vastest moment
to St. Louis. This accomplished, and
the North Missouri road will have united
with it in tho interest of St. Louis some
thing like the moneyed power which has
done such wonders tr Chicago.
Your North Missouri road needs to
day millions for maehino-shops, depot
grounds and a thou.-and other purposes,
it should have to-day one thousand more
cars and scveuty-Gve good locomotives,
It needs money to put its independent
line into ot. Joseph, it needs money
rapidly to complete its road from IJru.is
wick to Chillicothe aud Omaha, with
which, and the Kan.-as Pacific coast may
be measurably controlled she needs
money to push her connection from her
main line' up on into Iowa and hold it
break her do wn and let iit Louis loose the
valuable connection this road is making
for her, and ten miHt'ims of dollars will
not repay the damage to her. She will
lose connections she can never regain.
You Mr. Editor should arouse our people
to the iuiportanc-e of these matters to
their interest. Certainly if they com
prehend them as I do in tho field where
I can survey the whole ground and see
and know what is gcing on they would
be up and doing. These would be no
quarrel with the North Missouri men.
I but cr;th citizcir'of St. Louis would be
running to them with the question, what
can I do to aid you in your glorious work
for our city and state ? The citv of St.-
Louis could well a fiord this day to vote
two millions of dinlars as a donation to
secure the completion within a year of
the road lrom iiunswick to Omaha. If
there beam' jealousy or rivalry between
this lino and the Kansas Pacific there
should be none for they cannot militate
against each other, but wili each aid St.
Ijouis, and help them tho more success
fully to compete fbr trade for St. Louis
and for the North Missouri in which the
Kansas Pacific will be interested. Be
sides this Brunswick and Omaha road,
its whole length passes through one of
the best agricultural portions of Iowa
and Missouri, and its local business will
grow s nd make the road pay and be of
inestimable value to St. Louis.. JxjKiile
OYfifie. ground for St. Louis with all the
roads we have named-
I have no interest whatever in these
matters further tbrin as a St. Louisan. as
I am not connected nor interested o;nci
aliy or otherwise with any raiiroad in
I wrote what in my heart I believe to
bo iheimperalive demands for St. Louis.
If the combination of the Pennsylva
nia railroad can be formed with that of
-the North Missouri it will give St. Louis
and the North -Missouri men what is
needed. Let St. Louis Rid its accom
plishment and it will lesult in pushing

A .Sphere for IVoiitnu.
Women are naturally good economists,
says the (ngregationalist. They are
apt at understanding how to make limit
ed means go as far as possible. If a
man and his wife arc united in the desire
to get rich, the man is likely to think
more about earning mouey, the wife will
attach more importance to saving it.
Almost every American earns money
enough to hi well off, and in time to be
rich. If he does not become so, it is, in
many cases, because he bas no wife; or
because he does not take l.er into his
counsels. He is "full of enterprise and
makes an income, and if he does not
prosper, it is often because ha decs not
hold on to it. His wife, very likely, has
tbe faculty of conservation which he
lacks; and if he has the shrewdness to
enlist her in his plans, he may liud his
In Continental Europe, book-keeping
is a part of a well-taught farmer's
daughter, and the wile presides over the
finances of the establishment. With
us, woman's aptitude in the promotion
of;, material prosperity is too little
thought of; and a woman, who, as a
g'nl, was untaught in respect to judi
cious economy, makes an expensive wife.
Her husbaud perhaps keeps her in ig
norance of his finances, purposely. If
ho is prosperous, she becomes accus
tomed to plenty of money, and ill-prepared
fbr reverses. If he is not pros
pered, she has to bear the pinehings of
povcrt' without knowing how to help
him avoid the pressure.
Marriage would b3 easier and happier,
if younz women were taught tho princi
ples of account-keeping, and systematic
habits in tespect to finances; and if the
young huband would take his wife into
his confidence, and make the income and
outgo, and the accumulation of the first
few thousands of dollars, a matter of
common interest. An American girl of
average intelligence and good sense can
make the fortune of a man whose love
she enjoys, and who will give her for the
purpose a full share in the responsible
control of the income of the household.
She will not generally be able to enter
into his business plans, but it she knows
his wages, salary or current profits, and
his personal espouses, and can thus
foresee what the household has to rely
on, she will characteristically be ready
"to cut the coat according to the cloth,"
and will usually be more scrupulous than
he, to lay aside something every season
as the beginning of their fortune.
