'indirect" damages, which have caused

which even tha Ministry says it did not

the Omaha Herald's correspondent to
that paper. It is probably on a par
with many other things written from the
capita', and we give it to show how the
very truthful (?) Statements furnished
the Omaha papers are sometimes con
strued. A. J. Cropsey, a professed minister of
the gospel, and proprietor of the Lin
coln Statesman, aud I we blus-hiugly ad

himself extremely ridiculous last week.
While under the influence of liquor he
made a wager of a gallon of whisky that
he could stand on his head ten minutes.
The bet was taken, and the c'.ock stopped
without Cropsey's knowledge, and over
went the reverend gentloman (?) on hi

twenty minutes. This "cirous perform

Mb. Editoe :-Some weeks ago there
appeared in your columns a paragraph,
brif but "mvltum in parvo," to the ef
fect that, "what Plattsmouth needed
for its prosperity was more brick blocks
wholesale merchants, a bridge across the
Missouri" or something to this effect ;
and you might have added more whole
souled men, decent side walks, respecta
ble avenue, less liquor shops, billiard
saloons, and saloons which are worse ;
and less opportunity for sharp practice
on our streets generally. But all these
are like flowers and fruit to a tree not
showing need, but evidence of thrift.'
Would that we might see all tho above 1
yet there are things that seem needful
as a foundation, one of wbich is thor-tugh-going,
free public tcboo!. And
here let me disclaim all intention of cast
ing reproach upon the corpo of teach
ers in oar city. They are doing all they
can, but they cannot accomplish what is
generally expected of them. Each of
them has one hundred and thirty echo!
ar?, under such circumstances a rende r
proper grading iu. possible. Hence, fur
effsctivencss a3 educators, they canuot be
better than the Grammar school. cf our
older cities ; yet this is Plattstnouth
teeming with hor SOOchil Iren, everyone
of whom phould this day be in the way
of receiving a good, prctical education,
6uch as is impossible with present limit
ed opportunities. But Plattiinouth has
an academy. Is not this suilicicr.t?
WelJ, were its Professor to speak ou the
6ide of pecuniary motive, he might spy
yes. Yet it is easy to see that this mast
cotfiu far short of meeting the demands
of these 500 children, were it free of
cost. But what should a city be, thought
of which should afford no suitable,
free public instructiion for its children?
But the parents of theso children can
little better afford to pay tuition at this
Academy, than they can send their chil
dren to Omaha or Lincoln for schooling.
I repeat, we want thorough going, free
public schools. And for this we want
a High School Building, suited to four
classes, commodious fur 400 pupils ;
whose first class shall commence with
English grammar, and fourth with the
scientific and classical, so that when the
children of Plattsmouth graduate at her
own school, thiir education shall equal
that of the graduates of the schools in
other cities ; so that her young men
bhall be qualifiod for entering any college
in the land. Ia not this the thing for
Plattsmouth ? Ol.net.
The Blair Times gives the following
advice to precinct assessors :
One word to our precinct assessor;
we would again earnestly call upon you
before yonr annual round, to meet to
gether and agree upon soma uniform
system of work. This is imperative and
of vital importance, not only that you
may eorrectly discharge your duty, but
the iDterO'tof every tax payer is more
or lss in your Lands. See to it, that our
burdens rest equally on all. A3 our
waahh originate! from the soil, let the
lands in the main puy the bill, and do
not, an in the ptst. tax the improve
ments of thoe who are battlim' to live
in thio time of general depression.
The Omaha Bee says:
It is said by railroad men that there
will be no through mail from the West

Of Mrs Smythe, of Indianapolis, the
remarkai'le statement is made that she
now has her first husband n 1 yet sha
has never changed her name. She was
born a Smith, her rst husband was
named Smith, her second Schmidt, her
thiri Smyth, her fourth Smythe, and
her present, Sciithe.
It is said that tho proofhoets of the
Mormon Bible are in tho i ossession of
j-k- u. uiioi,-!, or raiajjra,
who superintended the printing and
proof reading of the Biwlc. Tho manu
script was furnished him by Joseph and
Hiram Smith, without punctuation or
division of chapter or verse. We pre
for not to believe thi story until we
hear from the editor of the O. ll-.r.sld.

The New York Tribune docs not seem
to have subscribed for much of the 'iojs-
sum", and declare m a toiiows :
"The Tribune, is like'y te be against
the bolters, since they are almost certain
to make hostility to protection to one of
their plattorm, and that the tribune can
never abide, no matter who may be the
rival candidates for Presidi-ut. Now
that emancipation is a fixtd fact. Im
partial suffrage nearly so, and the uni
versal amnesty inevitable, there is no re-
mainine national issue which is half so
important in the view of the Tribune as
that of protection vs. free trade. We
have no shadow of doubt that the over
throw of protection would bo fpeeddy
followed (as in 1816 20, and again in
1833 3)bya sweeping industrial col
lapse and commercial bank trurtcv.
which would carry hunger and distress
into the homes ot millions of our coun
trymen. To such a calamit3 the Tribune
cannot contribute, even passivly, for
any conceivable consideration."
Get Sleep Enough As a rule the
Amarican people do not sleep enough.
The rapid development of a new count
ry, its various and intense industrial ac
tivities, our common school oystem, our
dry atmo-phere, and our sunny c'imate.
all tend to make us preternaturallv wake

ent. The more settled oondition of

lhe late Lords Brougham and Pairu-

London. February 8.
The steamship Coiorada which left
Liverpool for New York yesterday was
run into just outide of the Mersey by
the Arabia, outward bound, and dam
aged feo as to necessitate the running o
her ashore to prevent her sinking in
deep water. The Arabia, which was
comparatively uninjured, rescued the
passengers of the Coiorada, except five
steerage passengers, who, it is supposed
lumped ovei board and were lost.
The London press although still mode
rate, had fault with vjriadstone fir clc
fending the treaty, and maintain that
parliament is unanimous for the rejection
of tho American demands.
A new company, wbieS proposes to
lay a cable direct to New York, has been
registered. Oae of the features of its

The Times to-day reviewing the de
bate in the Commons, says, it is evident
that the bouse n unanimous in repudiat
ing the admissibility of the Aruericm
claims for indirect losses Gladstone's
language is not likely to induce An-ri
cans to withdraw their demands. The
Times Ftrongly deprecates the verbal dis
cussion or the treaty.
The Daily Telegraph criticises the ut
terances of American journalists oa the
subject, and cays the English government
in the stand it took, has only obeyed tbe
unanimous impulse of the country, but
the speeches ef Gladstone are indiscreet,
and will probably prove mischievous.
In the House of Commons to-day a
vote or thanks to Uenison, retiring
Speaker of tbe Honae, was moved by
Mr. Gladstone. Feconded by Mr. D'L
raeli, and carried by acclamation.
In accordance with notice given ye
terday. 31illbank proposed to call on Sir
Charles Dilke to justify before tho House
hn recent speeches against the crown,
but wa ruled out ot order.
Mr. Forester introduced the tecret

New York, February 7
Tribune s special dated London.
Eail Granv ille's dispatch contains
no threat to withdraw from the arbitra
tion, and makes neither a demand nor
proposal. It simply calls ater.tion in
temperate and conciliatory language to
the meaning that England attaches te
the treaty. Mr. Glacb-tom's speeches
yesterday and to-day are widely cnticiz-d
as mischievous, offensive and needlessly
irritating, and it i believed that several
members of the cabinet strongly disap
prove of their passionate tones. The
cabinet and people are unanimous for
abandoning arbitration unless the A me
rican claims are tnooitscd. In ire is no
intention to offer an affront to America
The situation is regarded in the highest
English and American quarters as ex
treme'.y greve, but not hopeless.

tary Iloheson followed u'ging upon the
committee the importance of merchant
marine as naval defence ia case of war,
and especially for the purpose of cngag

The min features of the bill are that
it provides for the pavment of a 'bounty
ot not over ten dolkrs per ton each year
for five ye irs, to construction in the
United St ites of Iron steaaiships of not
less than l.OOJ tons each, to be engaged

Washington, Fehrary 7.
The Chronicle tsayu Secretary Boutwell
made a statement before the. Senate
Finance couimitte that he did not favor
any material reduction of the tariff', be
cause he Deeded all the revenue he
could get to reduce the public debt ;
also that the talk about war with Eng
land is very injudicious, even if England
should repudiate the Washington treaty,
as such fact would only restore the prior
legal state case.
The position taken by gentlemen close
ly connected with the administration and
government is that the British high com
mission perfectly understood the items
of the American high commissioners in
the rjegotiation of the treaty of Wash
ington, both from its terms and asser
tion in protocol, and that therefore uur
government is altogether justified in pre
senting the casa as it has, claiwiag con
sequential damages. In case the Board
of Arbitrators shall not award a gross
sum in satisfaction of the Alabama
claims this government is willing to stand
by the decision of the arbitrators. It is
known that though the Britir-h commis
sioners had fuli powers they frequently
consulted their home goTernment and
acted in accordance with its wishes in
all they did. This government h is not
yet received a text of the letter cf Lord
Granville to Geweiai Schenck, and there
fore cannot take atiicial action on it.
There is no probability whatever that
our government will witnuawany part oi

own eoarf-a or the tribunal of arbitrators
to act in the premises according to treaty

Ex-Sentor Grimes died at his resi

The first attack came about two weeks

while conversing with some friends at
his house he was again taken in the same

ond and third attack, the latter prooving
fatal at the time above stated. Since
