The following scrap of information,
taken from the Chicago Times, will no

'IIon. Pat. Havre?, the confidential
adviser of the liovernor of NebrakH,
and funeral organizer of the Grant forces

Nebraska for Gen. Grant, without a con

After reading the ahove we doubt not
th? Ripuliisans of t o State will con
clude that our Central Couinjittee have
made a mistake in calling a Convention.
The "confidential" adviser of his Ex

Good Joke on Tipton.
The New York Tribune of the 20th,
.peaking of tho Woman Suffrage lobby
ists at the capital, clones with the fol
lowing paragraph, which will be keenly
relished by those of our readers who
know Senator Tipton :
"The truth U. the female lobby has
worked hard all winter an J done noth
ing. Even Mrs. Major Dr ! W alker has
boon little better than a failure; anl
when, on Friday, iuiinedi itely alter the
adjournment, t-he ru-hed upon the floor
of the Senate, pantaloon and all, to
congratulate Mr. Tipton on his arraign
ment of the Conkling and Morton tyr
ntiny, tha unfortunate Senator seemed
to be unhappily in her sympathy, and
broke away with more haste than dig
nity." IBl.VK KAILUUA D.
We give our readers to-day an extract
fioui the proportion s-ubmitted by tho
Commis-ioners of Otoe county, in order
to call attention to what iNiebra-ka City
aims at by the proportion for bonds to
the Truuk Road. The only thing that
has stood in the way of the building of
this road, has been the refusal of Otoe
county to render any assistance in its
construction, and now they only pr-po?e
to give aid from Nebraska City South
The proposition is for bonds in the sum
of five thousand dollars per mile on
completiou of the road etc., to their
"From Nebraska City, in Otoe coun
ty, State of Nebraska, in a southwest
iin or northwestern or in both such di
rections or either of them ; and to the
St. Loni & Nebraska Trunk llailroad
commencing at Nebta-ka City an4 ruti
tiitig along the west side of the Missouri
river, but not weft of a due north anl
south line parallel with Fifth (:h) street
pi s;iid Nebraska City, to connect with
the Atthinson and Nebraska 11. li. at
llulo, Neb., or where said rajlroii
crosses the State line between Kansas
and Nebraska, so as to give Nebraska
City a direct connection cn the West
sidf of ;he Missouri river, with St Louis
in Missouri "
This county has once voted aid to this
roid, and the citizens along the river
stand ready to aid the enterprise in good
faith. So of Nemaha county below.
Perhaps a railroad company can be
found who will take hold and buiid this
road even though it extends no farther
north than the center of Otoe county,
but if .would be much more likely to
succeed with the proposition, to extend
it to Omaha.
On the subject of building this road,
the Brownvilie Advertiser says :
"After repeated meetings, and a deal
of coaxing, the Commissioners of Otoe
county have decided to submit the ques
tion of 1'ailroad aid to a vote of the
people of that county. As we under
stand it, the discriminating feature
again A the Trunk lload, however, is
retained and will be included in the
proposition to be voted upon. We are
not advised as to h w the parties view
this matter who pro;ose to buiid the
road. We will indulge the hope, how
ever, that such an understanding may
be reached as will result in ti e com
mencement of work on the Trunk road
with early spring, and its vigorous prose
cution to completion."
The Nebiaka City Chronicle, on tha
subject of Manufactories, says:
"When ten thousand operatives in
manufactories, of Nebraska City must
be fed, the farmer of the county will re
ceive Chicago price" lor produce with
out deducting freight, and can buy his
goods less the freight which he now pays.
It to the interest " of everybody to
build up town and country."

Millaud, the banker and newspaper
speculator, who died recently in Paris,
and who founded the Pjris Petite Jour
nal, which at one time had a daily circu
lation of nearly ha'f a million copies, was
an enthusiastic believer in the advantages
of liberal advertiseing. On day he had
at hi table nearly a'l the proprietors of
the leading Paris dailies. T!iy conversed
about advertising. Millaud asserted that
the most worthless articles could be sold
in vast quantities if liberally aJvertiscd.
Emil de Gnrardin, of L'l Prcsse, who
was present, took isue with him on the
Mibj.'ct "What will you bet," exclaimed
Miiliud. "that I cannot t-eil in one we k
one hundred thousand trances, worth of
the most common cabbage seed under
the pretext thatit will produce main
moth cabbafeheads? All I have to do is
to advertise it at once in a whol page
in e:ion of the daily nnpcrsoftl is .-ity.'
Girxrdin replied that he would give him
a paee in his paper for nothing if he
should win his wager The other news

thing. At the. exniration of the week
they inquired of "Millaud how the
Cal l age-seed fl.mrished. lie showed
them his books triumphantly, and satis
fied them th t he had sold nearly twice
as much as he promised, while orders
were Mill pouring in; but he said the
joke must stop there; and no further
orders, would be filled.
According ta Meyer's late experiments
neither man nor dog can be fed econom

of health, a much less amount of food
will support life and tdrength when a

meat. Pesistenee in the bread diet Meyer
found to make the tissues watery, and
to weaken the entire constitution.

The Snprrme Court Decides thiit
there can b no AppenN front the
District Court tu t"ol Stale.
From the Omaha Herald.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday last
announced an important decision effect
ing the right to appeal from the verdict
or decision of the District Courts of this
State. The question come up on several
motions to dismiss appeals, all made on
the ground that in this State the law
does not provide for an appeal, nor for
any other way of taking a case tip for
review, except by petition in error. A
good many cases in which appeals were
pending were dismissed.
It is now settltd that questions cf
fact will not be examined in the Supreme
Court. Esti brook's code was adopted
in great haste, and the Court has been
oblige I 'to hold its chapter on appeals
entirely inoperative, because, while it
provides the manner of appeals, it doe3
not define the causes which may be ap
letled. Th only case from this city which was
brought up in these motions to dismiss
appeals was that of Lowe vs. Sieblitz.
It was an appeal from a decree entered
by Judge Luke at the last term of the
District Court, in which Mrs. Lowe was
rcstr ined from continuing the lease for
the coroner, on which the Trivoli stands,
for a second term of Sve years after the
first five years had expired. Tho appeal
was disjnissed, leaving the decree as en
tered in force.
It is of great importance to the mem
bers of the Bar through! the State that
they should know that if they desire to
get their cases into the Supreme Court
they must lay the foundation by a peti
tion in error.
The folio wing from the Missouri Demo
crat, as to the manner in which elections
to the United States Senate are obtained,
is worthy of the consideration of the
Tho long tsrm for which Senators are
chosen makes it necessary that some
method of reform be adopted to check
the growing evil of using uiouey to buy
"The United States Senate can hardly
continue to ignore allegations of bribery
in the Kansas Senatorial elections, now
that the matter ha been so public, and
that the special attention of that body
has been called to it. It is a very dis
graceful thin to bo compelled to recog
xht ; Hti I it i especially dishearten ng.
while honest eifori is being made to re
form the civil service of Use country, to
be obliged to turn aside and examine
corruptions in the highost legislative
body in the land. But the duty of all
the friends of honest government is very
clear. It is to institute and prosecute
the fullest investigation and puuUh the
guilty parties, when discovered There
must be no whitewashing and no screen
ing. If Senators have been elected by
corrupt influences, they must be com
pelled to resign, whether the election
occurred last wiutcr, as was the case
with Mr. Caldwell, or tl.rce winters ago
a was the case wiih Mr. Pomero'. It
will be interesting to know, too, whether
the great railroad corporations which
owe their existence to the jrenerosity of
tin people, expressed in Congressional
subsidies and land grant?, have been
using tbeir power, influence and wealth
to get their agents and attorneys elected
to seats in the Senate. If so, there
must be a remedy within the power of
Congress to apply to them also ; and ive
hone Congress will not be slow to apply
YTunt the Entire fflotuer of Alexis
The Erpr3s., n.Qther of the Grand
Duke Alexis, . is very grateful for the
kind and conrtceus reception lie has re
ceived at the hai'ds of the American
people, and her feelings are thus por
trayed by a correspondent of the New
York Herald :
TUE CZAU THANKS TOE 'AMERICAN NA
"There was a good deal of curiosity
manifested among the members of the
diplomatic body as to what iho Emperor
would say to Mr. Curtin upon the ocea
(ion of the New Year, and whether he
would thank the Ametican Government
or the American people for the reception
of the Grand Duke. In h;s speech to
Mr. Curtin, which you will have already
received, he evaded the difficulty, how
ever, by using the word "nation,' which
may, of course, include the Government
and people,- but he did not mention the
President nor say by what intermediary
the thanks were to be conveyed to the
people. The. Empress on her part
showed herself very grateful indeed.
She said : 'I do not know, 3Ir. Curtin,
how to expres-j my thanks and uiy de
light and gratification for the cordial and
enthniastic reception that has been ten
dered Alexis by the great hearted Ameri
can people. Believe me. I shall never
forget it, and I wish you to tell them
how mui h I have been touched by these
marks of friendship and kindness shown
my dear ton.' "
An Iowa preacher is on trial upon a
charge of frighteninir a boy to death.
We-regret tin lack of details; It is not
stated how the deed was done. It is
likely that the man of God found the
boy in weak bodily condition, and pro
duced hi regular pyioreehmc hell for
the purpose of scaring him into heaven,
as tigers are driven away by fire. The
reverend gentleman probably ignited too
many fireworks at a time, ani accom
plished his purpose sooner than he had
intended. Had he been more temperate
in the expenditure of his caloric, that
boy might have lived to pay a great deal
of money in the church.
Of Fisk an J his wife, who was older
than he, a T'oston letter-writer says:
"With his notorious tics against her,
there had never been estrangement be
tween them. She excused everything,
and he held for her a sort of piatonic af
fection. He wrote to her constantly, and
vitited her often. She was his confMeut
always, and his adviser in many things

BY COB. J. W. FORXEY.
Is it not true that the public men best
abused are the best remembered ? Cer
tainly Andrew Jackson looms up through
all the mists and misrepresentations of
the past like a great statue founded as if
to last f.rever. Witness tho tribute
paid to his memory. Henry A. Wi-e,
iu bis ju.st published book a book bitter
enough, as regards Benton and others,
but abounding in compliments to the
hero President, of whom Wise, during
his early career in Cotiire, was, .per
haps, tho most violent assailant. Wit
ness, also the extraordinary memoir of
James Parton, the mot caustic and re
morseless of critics. Never shall I for
get the eulogy of George Bancroft, pro
nounced twenty-six years ago, while he
was Secretary of the Nav?, under Presi
dent Polk, after the intelligence of the
death of Jack -on had been received in
Washington. The affluence of genius
never produced a more exquisite off
spring. The rapidity wth which it was
prepared, the fervor with which it was
pronounced, and its eff'Ctupftn the pub
lic mind, excited the wonder and deiiht
of followers of old Hickory; and if you
turn to it now 3-ou will find it fu:passed
bv nothing in the interesting volume
which preserves the "Jackson Oose
quies." At the end of nearly a gene
ration, we find the ardent express
ions of a partisan Cabinet Minister
equalled by the more deliberate praise of
former nolitical adversaries. Why is
this? Simply because Andrew Jackson's
inspiration through hiri whole life was a
passionate love of the Union, a fixed
and even ferocious determination to put
down its enemies at whatever hazard or

pnservinsr After Jackson's first elec
tion in 1S23, a strong effort was in;de to
remove General an old Revolu
tionary soldier, at that time postmaster
in one of the principal New York towns.
He had leen so fierce an Adams man
that the Jackson men determined to dis
L place him. H was no Mrar.jier to Jack
son, who knew nun well, ami was con
scious of his private worth and public
services'; but as the effort to gtt his
place . was a det rmined one, General
resolved to undertake a journey to
Washington for the purpose of looking
after bis case. Si
Wright had jut
left his seat as a -Representative in Con
gross from New -York. Never was the
En. pire State more ably represented
Cool, honest, profound and subtle, Mr
Wright was preei'dy the man to head a
movement against the old postmister.
His influence with Jackson was bound
less. His force in debate made him a
match for the giants themselves ; and as
Mr. Van Bu. en was then Jackson's Sec
retary of State, the combination was
powerful. The old postmaster, knowing
that these to political masters were
against him, called upon the President
immediately upon his arrival, and was
mot courteously received and requested
to call again, which he did several times,
but nothing was said about the post-of-fiee.
Initially the. . politicians ti;ii.-hed
their protest and pent it forward to Mr
Wright and requested that it shna'd be
delivered at the first opportunity. The
old postmaster heard from his friends at
home that the important document was
tin its way, so be resolved on a coup tie
main. The next day there was a Presi
dential reception, and among the early
visitors was General . After a cor
dial greeting by Jackson, he quietly took
his seat and waited until the lor:g train
of visitor had duly saluted the nation's
Chief and passed through the Grnud
East Room on their way home. The
President turned to bis venerable guest
with soma surpris? as he noticed him
still seated on one of the sofas, and en
tered into familiar conversation with hitn,
when to his amazement, the old solder
j-aid : -'"General Jackson, I have come
here to talk about my office. T!i poli
ticians want to take it from me, and they
know I have nothing else to live upon."
The President made no reply, till the
aged postmaster, began to take off his
coat in the most excited manner, when
Old Hickory broke out with the inquiry:
"What in Heaven's name are you going
to do? Why do you take off your coat
in this public place ?"' "Well, sir, I ant
going to thow you my wounds, which I
received iu fighting for my country
against the Englnh!" "Put it on at
once, sir!" was the reply; "I am sur-.
prised that a man of your arc Fhould
make fuch an exhibition of himself,"
and the eyes of the iron President were
su'fu-ed with tears, ns without another
word he bade his ancient foe good even
ing. The very next night the crafty and
able New York politician ca'led at the
White House and sent in his card. He
was immediately ushered into the pres
ence and found Jackson in loose gown
and -slippers seated before a blazing
wood fire quietly str iking his long pipe.
After the, ordinary courtesies had been
exchanged, the politician opened his
budget. He re presented the district front
which the venerable postmaster hailed ;
paid the latter had been known as vry
active advoca e of John Quincy Adams ;
that he had literally forfeited his place
by his earnest opposition to the Jackon
men, and that if he wero not. removed
the new Administration would be seri
ously injured. lie had hardly finished
the last sentence, wlien Jacn-on pprunir
to his feet, flung his pip In the fire, and
exclaimed, with great vehemence, "I
take the consequences. By the Eternal!
I will not remove the old man I cannot
remove" him. Why,' Mr. Wright, do
you know that he carries more than a
pound of British luad in his body?" He
who was stronger than conrt. courtiers,
or Cabinets, pronounced his fiat, and the
happy old postmaster next day took the
Uga and retaraod homo rejoicing.
Married "Full l p."
In Virginia, where tho law fixes the
marriage fee at one dollar, there is a
reminiscence of a couple who many
years ago called on a parson and request
ed him to marry them.
"Where is my fee?" said the old
" The parties who wero to unite their
fortunes began to look fur the money,
ar.d found the joint amount to be twen-ty-s-cveu
"I can't -marry you for that um,"
said the irate old gentleman.
"A little bit of service will go a long
way," suggested the eagur, male ap
plicant. "Ah, no," said the parson, "you don't
pay for the bize of the pill, but for the
gml you hope it will do you."
The lass, intent on ruaniago, began
ta v.cep, but the parson was inexorable,
and the couple turned sadly to depart.
Just then a happy thought seemed to
strike the forlorn maiden, and she turned
and cried through her tears :
"Please, rir, if you can't marry us
full up, wo.j'tyou m trry us twenty-seven
conts worth ? Wo can come for the rest
some other time."
This was too tauc'n for the parson.
He married them "full up," and they
went on their way rejoicing.

Mark Twain says that when womou
frame laws, the first thing they will do
will I e to enact :
1. That all men should be at home at
ten p. 111. without fail.
2i That married men should bestow
considerable attention upon their own
3. 1 hat it should bo a hanging o (Tense
to sell whiky in fuloous, and that fines

4. That tho fmoking of cigars to ex
cessshould be forbidden, and tho smoking
of pipes utterly abolished.
5. That the wife should have the title
of her own property when she marries a
man that hasn't any.
"Such tyranny as this," says Mark,
"wc could never stand. Our free soul
could not stand such degrading thrall

beguile us of our imperial privileges.
Content yourselves with your little fem
