It is a som.what singular fact that the
Omaha ILrald anl Rrpul'llaia rccebre
no news fiom Liticcln cf a favorable
character nothing that speaks good fjr
anybody. They have a constant flow of
faultfinding and "rToiois" of bad and
frti-liilent transsetious. No man is safe
for a moment from their at inch", made
under the gar!) cf looking after the inte
rests of the State. We expect nothing
different from the Jlnmlil, as it his al
ways reveled in t lie slums oi pelities
and fattens a:il grows corpulent on iiith.
It gloiiea in speaking ill or as many
people a3 possible, would languish, and
pine were it depiived of its sustenance
in this respect. But of the Republican,
professedly a leading pa; or in the party
that endeavors, as a leading principle, to
draw out the good that is in men, better
things should be expected. It is ex
pected of it that it should speak ill of
no man unless absolutely necessary, but
should always be ready with a word of
encouragement to draw out the good
qualities of men. Perhaps it may yet
prove the "correctness of our statement
that Mr. Thomas had done more to
break uo the Republican party than
imy other man in the State had done in
tho same length cf time.
SlfJCATK SLATES AXO SILICATE
Teachers in our public schools are oft
en annoyed by the noise and confusion
made by tho heavy stone slates in gene
ral use. During our visit to Naomi In
stitute a year ago we found .this annov
ance entirely done away with by the use
of the li.'iht and noi-elcss slates mnuafae
turcdby the N. Y. Silicate Bank Slate
Co. These slates are made of stiff paste
board, coveted with a coating of gene
ral flint or other surface which gives a
beautiful surface for writing on with a
common slate pencil.
They can bo obtained in small sheets
that wi!i slip between the leaves cf a
book where they are always ready for
use and they are tiso bound in tasty book
form. Prof. Patterson informs us that
these slates have given great satisfaction
to" Naomi Insditute. lie also informs
us thai his students are Using a load
pencil of superior quality, manufactured
by the same company. ,A box of those
called the "Silicate "Lead Pencil" now
lies before us, and the tests we have put
them to prove them to he j;jsfc the pen

This body is stii! in session, but there
U a fair prospect that it well adjourn at
a:i early day. There has been a large
number of bills introduced, but only a
very few of thctn eem to have more
than a half dozen friends. The body
will undoubtedly adjourn as soon as three
or four cf the most important bills are
The bill authorizing a re assembling
of the Constitutional Convention passed
the 1 louse last evening, after striking
out the appropriation, thus leaving the
members of the convention to do their
work without pay. The amendment was
concurred in by the Senate this morning,
and the bill went to the acting Governor
for his signature. The enemies of the
bill confide nt'y assert that be will veto
it, while its fiiends as confidently as
sert that lie will sign if.
Tho ai tides, of impeachment against
Hen. John Gillc.-'nie, State Auditor,
were withdrawn from the Senate, yes
terday, and ''Hottest John" now stand-;
as a free taan again.
Tho bill to provide for the develop
ment of the Saline iuteie.-t was vctc-d
down in tho Hou-e hist evening, but the
vote w.i.5 iccon-ilered this uoruing and
the bill referred to the Judiciary Com
mittee. It will probably pass with some
modification. Ser.ater Cropscy made a
very vi !ent and bitter speech in- the
Senate this morning, in denunciation cf
the State -.,;. b -cause it had seen

as so. on as Dr. L-in.Ii had been sworn in
as a Senator, as it -was supposed would
be done, and we may say desired, by
nearly every one, the first motion made
rd'icr he had taken his scat was by Mr.
Abbott, (the man who was so fierce for
an investigation a few momenta befbre),
for the adoption of a ccncurrcut rcsolu
tien of adjournment. It was defeated1 cf
Wc undo; stand that Dr. Laish's
friends wi i demand an investigation if
ins enemies do not. It is bat justice to
all concerned, and especially to the inter
ests of the State, that souiothlug sdiouid
be done to cither vindicate or convict
Pr. Larsh. ar;d that speedily.

A gentleman from the western part of
the county informs ys that a young gen
tleman named Clausen, of Ashland, has
for a considerable length cf time been
paying attention to a young lady of that
vicinity, and that a short time since they
decided to be joined in the holy bonds
of matiimcny. Tho young man ex
pressed a desire to have a friend 'cf his
from Iowa to perform the ceremony, in
stead of having a Preacher or Justice
of the Peace. The bride expectant bad
no choice in the matter, and the "friend"
was on hand at the time appointed and
performed the ceremony, and pro
nounced them "man and wife." At the
expiration of a week or ten days the vil
lain, Clawson, informed the deluded gi:l
that his "friend" was not authorized to
solemnize marriages, that no license had
been issued, and that he had no further
desire to maintain the sham. The girl
had him arrested, and the trial wes in
progress when our informant left. Her
name was Look before tho sham mar
riage, and it is Look yet.
