THE CHEAT SLEET.
Parties irho have traveled through the
western portion of the county say that
they never saw so great a sleet as that
which fell there on Saturday, the ISth.
Every blade of grass and every shrub
were loaded down, and trees were bent
to the earth with the enormous load of
sleet which clung to their branches. A
man who resides on the Weeping W ater
is 104 years old, and says that it was the
heaviest sleet he ever saw.

Wood's Household Magtzine for De

est visitants for the month. Crowded
with all the relishes of a Christmas Din

little ones, as well as f-r the older mem

They are holding "anti-Corruption"
meetings at Nebraska City. That is
right. We hope meetings of this kind
will be held everywhere that official cor
ruption is found. Let the people take
these matters in hand direct,- and we wi'j
guarantee that politics will soon be purged
of some of the villains who are now en
deavoring to manipulate things. Let
the people, "by seventies" rout out the
Tammanies of the whole land, and that
promptly. Another effect that these
meetings of the people will have is to
expose the men who are crying fraud for
s petit ical purpose, without grounds
iherefor, and they will be censured as
severely as those who are found guilty of
wrong doing on the other hand. We
doubt if the Omaha HcralJ would en
dorse this way of doing.

Capt. Man-hail, ever mindful of the
interests cf the reading public, has re
quested the P. M. at Omaha to send the
paper mail for this city via the Platte
river during the present uncertain state
of the cros ing of tho Missouri. This
will make the Omaha papers an hour or
more later than by the other route, but
will there be more certainty of their ar
rival. "Ye Ancient" passed through the
city last evening; and it is said he was
on his way to Washington, or else

"We have just been shown an elegant

We find the following letter in a recent

To Col. J. II. Notewcre, State Superin
teudent or Immigration :
Since August 10th, 1871, up to the
present time, there lias been an average
ot twenty nine emigrant wagons dailv
crossed at this point, going west to locate
in rsebiaska. lhis miormatioa lget o
Mr. Simpson, captain of the ferry boat
and from my own observation and in
conversation with the immigrants them
selves. Each team will have an average
of six persons husband and wife and
four ehtldrcn, three horses, four cattle
(loose,) eight sheep, and a large number
supplied with coop ot chickens. As a
general thing the stock are in :ood con
dition, and the mea women and children
hearty, healthy looking people, just such
as 2Vebraka needs todevtlop the resourc
es ot this great fruit growing and agn
cultural state of the west. The irumi
grants I find, are mostly from Illinois,
Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota iconsm,
southern Iowa ami northern .Missouri
Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Southern
Iowa and Northern Missouri. They are
principally western people and used to
western Me. Many of them had good
coiiilortable homes, wheie they came
from, but said they wished to go where
they could get homes for their children
before it is too late. Beatrice. Lincoln
and Graud Island seem to be their point
of destination, and from these points
they will select their locations. J hese
men come fully advi-:ed as to what they
should do, and manvof them are supplied
with agricultural implements, which will
answer for present uc. A Mr. Ituspcll. of
Illinois, who is wide awake, supplied him
self with several thousand ah seedlimrs
from ten to fiffeeh inches- high, and in
tends planting them as soon as he lo
cates. I find" a- large portion of these
western pioneers in possession. of cur
Immigration pamphlets, and nearly
every one with a copy of the I. Si M.

These companies hare done more to
advertise JNehraska abroad than ail
other influences combined. And judg
ing from tU3 amount or lands these rail
road companies are selling I should think
it p?uJ them well to advertise liberally
as th-?y have done. Last evening a colo
ny of thirty or forty persons passed
through here from Page county, Iowa,
bound for Grand Island, Nebraska.
The following is an estimate of the
persons and property crossed at this
Ioint since the tenth of last August, and
refer to our business men 33 to whether
the cstima!e is too great or not:
Number of wagons, - - - 2,378
Number of person, allowing G
to each wason, ... 14,2"8
Number of horses, - v 4.7ofi
" cattle. - - - 7,134
" " sheep, - - - 10,000
Now I shall have no doubt that Ne
maha and Piiehardson counties have
crossed as many as Otoe has, and that
Cass county ha3 crossed an equal num
ber, and if that be so, we have received
at the lowest calcuhitien, forty thousand
population to Nebraska fcince last Au
gust. Of course I do not inelude those
who come by rail, which will swell the
number at least one third larger. Now.
then, suppose at Omaha, and north of
that nonit. that an equal number has
crossed the river and located in Nebras
ka, and -ray- opinion is that north of
Platte River 'ou have almost as heaw
immigration as we .nave utn. ii win
be seen that at that rate" Nebraska will
double her ptesent populatiou in twelve
months from last August.

by which every sufferer, no matter what his con
