Geo. W Frost, through the columns of
the Omaha Herald:
"Iricnd Ilathaway is after our cotem
porary 'over the way' with a sharp stick,
and we would with becoming modesty,
in the most 'pquare toed' (vide T, fc li. )
manner, inquire whether the 'report' of"
one of the .foremost men of Massachu
setts wa3 true, that brother Thomas' pro
clivities arc all Democratic, and that he
edited, ia a 'square toed' manner, a
'square toed' Democratic sheet, either
in the old Bay State or elsewhere, pro
vious to studying the in3 aud outs of Ne-
.braska politics.
"We do not quite credit this, but one
of our oldest and foremost Republicans
declares that it is so, and furthermore
asserts that in his opinion the Tribune
and KrpuLucan, under Us editorial lead
is last uecewing Democratic.

the proprietors of that paper, but it3 ed

and if properly penitent and wi!h froo'
aAsnranes of the future, he will, we have
no doubt, be received to the iold.
We have long been sati.-fied that Mr
Thomas' proclivities were all Democratic,
although, we never before knew that he
had acknowledged the faith. There arc
certain "car mirks" which cannot well
be LiJ in such matters, and Mr. Thoma
has exhibited them quite plainly since
hi3 first advent into our State. We b
licve Mr. Fro,t was one of the original
stockholders in the Tribune, while Mr.
Thomas was commander in chief of that
concern, and he should be good authori

and it is no use to try to hide it. The
above only confirms the report that Mr.
Thomas was being discharged on ac
count of his Democratic proclivities or
rather because of the injury he has
done the Republican party of this State
from his course as editor of what was
conceded as one of the leading party
papers of the State. Let all good Re
publicans rejoice that the proprietors of
the Republican have the determination
to rid theeiselves of this political leper.

Of the enterprise proposed by New
Orleans; to supply our V estern rivers
with iroa barges for the transportation
of grain, the Kansas City Journal of
Commerce says:
"The question of remodeling the ma
rine of the Western rivers by substitut
ing iron for wood in the construction of
steamboats, has been discussed for years
and is now about to assume definite
shape by the erection of an iron boat
building yard at some point in the Mis
sissippi Valley. It has been demon
strated that an iron steamer will carry,
on four feet of water, the same load
that a wooden cne will on six feet, thus
practically improving the capacity of our
river channels by two feet depth of
water. An improvement of this charac
ter would entirely change the conditions
of navigation in the Missouri, and tend,
beyond anything else, to restore to this
valley the importance onee attached to
the river aj a means of transit and a
channel of commerce. The proposition
is oho involving vast interests."
"Very Alarmin; it True A Plajjiic of
Darkness Coming-.
A very disagreeable prophesy is quot
ed by the Journal de Brvxellcs. The
prophecy is attributed to the venerable
Anna Maria Taigi, and is to the effect
that two great chastisements may be ex
pected the one from heaven, the other
from earth. The latter, which will con
sist in wars, revolutions and other cala
mities, being terminated, that from
heaven will succeed, and is explaiued as
fallows : "Great darkness i3 to prevail
over the whole land during three days
and three nights. It will be eo thick
that absolutely nothing will be visible,
and will be accompanied by pestilence
which will chiefly fall on the enemies of
relisicn, although the scourge will not be
entirely confined to them. While this
darkness lasts, no lights will shine, no
fire will have any brightness, and on
ly those who have blessed things (can
dles?) will be able to see. All this ii
very horrible, and it is to be hoped that
the lady may be mistaken in her pre
dictions, end that they may turn out to
be as erroneous as that of the great
tidal wave which was the other day to
have destroyed New Orleans. The pro
phetess, however, gives full directions as
to the proper course to be pursued dur
ing this reign of darkness and pestilence.
People are exhorted to not endeavor to
scan the heavens curiously during the
darkness, for whosoever shall go and
look out of a window, or leave his house
for the purpose of descrying the firma
ment, will be immediately struck down.
The whole time that the judgment shall
last ought to be employed in prayer, and
above all in reciting the Holy Rosary.
The director of Anna Maria Taigi said,
in August 1864 : "It is most true that
the venerable servant of God announced
the scourge of three days' darkness, ex
tending over the whole earth. While it
lasts the windows must be kept closed.'
Andrew Jackson Davis, it i3 said, pro
poses to write a book on insanity; and
judging from some of the productions of
his pen, that is hi3 best holt.

Mrs LcGrande, the woman who on
the 30th of Sept last, was shot while on
the Fair Grounds, lingered until 10
o'clock on last Sabbath evening when she
passed from out of this world of pain
and suffering, aged 21 years, 4 months
and 4 days. Thus through the freak of
a drunken fellow, has a woman lost her
life, a husband a wife, mother a daugh
ter and a child a mother. Brotcntille

The action of a railroad conductor a
few days since draws attention to a pop
ular error. 1 he train struct a man on
the t lack and threw him into the eow-
catchc-r of the engine. Supposing him
to be dead, the conductor, without re
moving the body, started the train back
to a way station. Th body was shaken
to the irroui'id by the motion of the en
gine, and it was found that life still re
mamcd. Had he been taken on when
the accident first occurred there migh
have been a chance of his recovery. The
conductor, when asked why not the man
was at once taken up, replied that he
supposed he had no richt to remove a
body until a coroner had sccu it. Sin
gular as this reason may appear, it nev
erlheios expresses a superstition that
exists almost universally throughout the
country among all classes. At what no
riod cr in what manner this absnrd be
lief originated we can not fay. It may
have grown out of a statute of Edward
I., which rendered it imperative that the
jury should hold their deliberations su
pervtuum corportj within sight ot the
lody a custom which has at the present
day aiso become obsolete, as it is con
sidered sufficient for the jury merely to
view the body although they may not
sit for several weeks afterward. In what
ever manner the idea expressed or acted
upon by the conductor originated, it is
time that it should cease to exist. The
neglect to give immediate aid to a per
son found apparently dead, irom light'
ning or other causes, may frequently
lead to death.

What Pleuses the Public?
Talking the other day with an able
and popular lecturer, who seldom failed
in getting a full and attentive audience.
we ventured to ask him what kind of
subjects and what style of treatment he
thought the public liked best. "Well,"
was the reply, "I hardly know; but
there's one secret I've found out what
the public hates is information." Pe?pe

would go to see a lrcck play it it was

The only thing peculiar which has
thus far occurred in the reception of the
Grand Duke Alexis was when he entered
the house of Minister Catacazy, at

Russian bread, which she passed to Al

In Buckingham's "Newspaper Spe

Boston in the year 1690. Only one co

Number one of this paper, and prob
ably the number ever published, is
dated September 25, 1690. Immediate

that it was an art contrary to law, and
contained "reflection of a very high nat

in print without license first obtained
from those appointed by the govtrnment
to grant the same."
A sagacious and successful business
man makes the following valaable sug
gestions regarding economy ia advertis
ing: "Merchants are importuned almost
every day by tramp3 to give them from
five to twenty-live dollars, for insert'ng
cards in directories for this and that.
Common sense ought to tell a man that
it he has any money to spend in advertis
ing, the proper way to do is to advertise
in his home paper, and then order
hundred or a thousand extra copies and
mail them to customers. By this means
you not only encourage j-our home paper,
but at the samo time you get a direct
benefit from advertising, and also benefit
the town, lor its papers go out among
the very class of people you want to
reach, telling its advantages as a place
of trade, while twenty five dollars may
be invested in a card in a directory, that
is got up to advertise other places and is
thrown away and never seen. Uucha-
