A letter in the Tribune to-day gives
the particulars of the trade between Mr.
Greeley and the Democrats, which took
place as early as last October. The let
ters and proofs are on hand, and if any
time Republican can vote for him, after
such a shameless transaction, we pity his
ideas of right and wrong, and his sense
of what constitutes honesty in this world.
Honest Horace Greeley, forsooth 1 Mil
ler was right when he said there was not
an honest hair in his head.
The Electoral Vote
Tho"new apportionment increased the
number of members of the House to
2S3. This was further increased by the
supplementary bill to 202. If we add to
this the 74 Senators we have 3C6, the
number of electoral votes. They are
divided among the States as follows :
...... 4 Missouri...
...... 3o Michigan-
..... 9 Florida, ........ ..
29 Texas ..
...... 3 Iowa

10 West Virginia..
It is well known that Honest Horace
has always avoided giving the Territory
or State of Nebraska one iota of praise
or notice in his popular (?) Tribune.
His attention was called to the dis
crimination made against us, by promin
ent men here, and with great reluctance
a short article or two on our State was
Allowed to appear in this immaculate or
gan as it then called itself.
Another case has lately come to our
knowledge where he endeavored to injure
us, not by silence alone, but by active
work and speeches to our detriment.
The B. L M. R. R. Company last
winter, at Philadelphia, "worked up" a
large colony for settlement on their lands
in Aw State. Hearing it, Horace Gree
ley came from his farm at Chappauqua
to see them, and made the colonists a
epeech to induce them not to come to
Nebraslza but to go farther south to
Kansas or Texas.

Touzalin and Scott, of the B. & 31. iu

They talk about disbanding the party
and say Grant is corrupt. Admitting
for a moment, and for the sake of argu

him were true, would that be a ju
cause for disbanding our party, after the
precedents the Democratic party have
With the election of Jeff. Davis and
all his crew in the South, with the Tarn

Democratic party should have disbandei

seen. The day is at hand.

A great and at first sight plausible
objection to Grant, in the German mind
is that he somehow knew or connived at
the sale of arms to the French, by which
Germans in the Faderland were killed,
This report, started by enemies of the
Republican party, and of Gen. Gran

doubt, by our German friends, to be the
fact ; hence they say " we will not vote
Let us fairly examine this question.
Who started this cry who raised thi
howl, and for what purpose?
Charles Sumner and Carl Schurz ; and
the motive was as plain as the nose on a
man's face. They did it to make politi
cal capital, and to injure the man who
they supposed stood in the way of their
advancement in the political world.
How much credit is such testimoni'cn
titled to ? How much weight does the
evidence of a prejudiced and interested
party have in any court of justice ? It
should have none.
- Did the German nation demand this
investigation? Not any. Does Bis
niarck tako any stock in Carl Schurz?
The German Government not only did
not demand this investigation, but
laughed at the idea ; and when by rea
son of Sumner's and Schurz's irnportu
nity, the matter was fairly and thor
ouehly investigated, not a shadow of
facts was found to sustain the charge
and it was dropped, nor have we heard
of it since. We ask our German breth
ren who are going to oppose Grant on
this ground, to examine these facts care
fully first.. Do not take our word for it,
but read for yourselves the report of the
Investigating Committee, and use your
common sense in judging who is likely
to be right and wrong on this matter.
Schurz boasts that he carries you in Lis
pocket. Are ye slaves, men ? Have ye
brought yourold feudal customs over the
water, that a man of your - race boasts
that he owns and carries your principles
in his pockets or his hands?
What is Charles Sumner, the twin
abettor of this most false charge against
our President? A haughty aristocrat,
hating and despising the German, the
Irish, all and every man who ha3 to
work for a living. Plebians, he calls
them. Spoiled and corrupted by power,
tarnished by twenty-five years of public
service, rendered morbid and savage be
cause after years and years of unlimited
sway, he suddenly runs against a snag

doesn't think Charles Sumner has all the

THOSE SCHOOL. RON OS. -
' We call, attention to the "Special
Election Notice" which has appeared in
our columns for some days.
The importance- of these matters to
this city can not be over-estimated.
Ai for the voting of bonds to the
Hion School, there seems to Le but
little variance of opinion, and -wc shall
only remark that Plattsmouth is already
behind her sister cities in this respect.
Towns in the State, of not half the popu
lation, have fine High Schools and build
ings. In regard to the College bonds, it
seems to us that there can be but one
view of the matter, as regarded in a
business light, and that is. vote the
bonds and get your $50,000 College
built for $25,0OO outlay.
In addition to" securing a handsome
building and grounds within our city
borders, wo should undoubtedly gain
largely in population and importance,
by the location of such an institution,
here. From three to four hundred stu
dents are expected to attend. They
must board here and be lodged, and
bring more or less money among us.
The annual Commencements, &c, will
also bring strangers and friends.
This is the plain facts from a business
. From the sectarian Tiew, not having
any of that "in ours," we cannot argue
the point. Schools, are schools; and
colleges, colleges, to us, so that they
are ably conducted.
More than this we do not urge ; although
we feel deeply interested in the growth
of the town, as much so as any one here
can, we have made it a rule never to
urge the voting of bonds, for anything,
on any community, because it happened
to seem a good thing to do. Every tax
payer must judge for himself of its ex
pediency. It is our duty, as a newspa
per, to place before you the probable ad
vantages to be derived from location of
such a College here, and we have now
done so. Think the matter over, and
vote accordingly. ' . hii

Ed. Herald. HaviDg promised to
inform you of all unusually interesting
events transpiring in this corner of the
footstool, 1 must now "take my pen in
hand," to apprise you of the fact that
a very important event threatens us just
at present. I presume you may have
heard of the "Dolly Varden" fever.
Some of our inhabitants have got that
pretty bad, and in fact you can see traces
of it yet ; but that was, and is nowhere,
compared with the fever now threaten
ing our community, viz: the order called
"Patrons of Husbandry."
The Varden fever was caught only by
the female population, while the Hus
bandly is catching to both male and fe
male ; for while we of the sterner sex
wish (according to precepts laid down in
the Herald) to patronize home indus
try, the ladies say "Patron (eyes) Hus
bandry." If wo say the grain buyers
must live, they say get a good price for
your grain, and buy us and children
pome shoes. If we say the agricultural
implement , dealers ought to be encour
aged, they Pat.' the Husband, and say
winter is coming cn, save money, and
buy some extra flannels, and thereby
save doctor bills. So, what shall we do?
Shall we tell them that this is a secret
order? or will they answer that they
would like nothing better than the "se
crets of Husband-ry." We are in a fix 1
Have about concluded to abide by your
advice. Please tell us something about
it. Is it dangerous if there is an auli-

Barley is just ready to cut and prom
ises very well. Some of the wheat
promises to be ripe soon, and is generally
good. Oats, ditto, and no chinch bugs

close race, but corn is ahead now, and
will likely remain so. In our truck

from Glendale. Well, then, adieu.
Cass Co.. Neb., July Cth, 1872.
Ed. Herald : Since we discovered
a column open to us farmers and clod
hoppers, we have been anxious to con
tribute our altte to help Gil it.
Our whereabouts is seven miles south
west of the falls, on the Weeping Water,
in what is called the. English colony or
settlement. Wfnter wheat with us this
season is a failure, but spring wheat and
oats never looked better. Corn makes
a fair show, potatoes are doing well, if
the tormenting bugs would let them
alone, but the miserable scamps are too
many for us ; we kill some and wish all
manner of bad wishes about the rest.
Vegetation of all kinds is at least a week
ater than usual, owing, doubtless, to
our exceeding cold winter. We have
heard it remarked ever since we were
quite small that when we saw the trees
and shrubs loaded with ice or sleit, it
was a sign of a fruit season, and we
never saw the trees, shrubs and grass,
so heavily laden with ice as we did
about the middlo of Nov. last, nor a
greater show ot wild fruit, especially
plums and grapes, as we see this season.
We have lost a great many bushels of
apples, for the want of trees of suitalle
age and size to bear them. Tree plant
ing is not neglected witn us. ixeany
every farmer has more or less planted to
forest trees. In a few j'ears we will have
plenty of fine groves, to hold Independ
ence in, aud in twenty-five years we pre
diet timber will be plenty in Nebraska.

Horace Greeley evidently is in his second

too well appreciated to receive the votes

The constant cry and complaint of the
liberals from the very inception of the
movement has been, the Kepubhcan
party is controlled by officeholders ;
it3 conventions aro run by otheehold-
ers, tne party is given over to orace-
hunting, and the people have no voice
in shaping its policies or naming its can-
diates." That these charges are ridicu
lous everybody who slops to think,
knows, and that they are false every
Republican who watches the course of
politics is aware. That men who desert
a party without cause, and organize
one without principles, will misrepresent
the party troni winch they have seceded,
is to be expected. If these charges,
which are repeated ad nauseam, against
the Republican party were true it would
be naturally supposed that the new party
which antagonizes tha old, and hopes to
displace it in the confidence of the peo
ple, would at least avoid the errors they
so loudly denounce. But the contrary
is the tact. In selecting hity-nve dele

o'clock. Come every body.
Here's a lucky fellow, just hear him :
An independent editor.
The Crawford (31o. ) 3Iirror is a week
ly paper printed in the woods upon a
farm 4 utiles from Steelvillc Uie county
scat, to which point the paper is sent for
circulation. The situation is described
as most beautiful, surrounded as it is by
nature in all her pristine loveliness
woods, wild flowers, myraids of birds
singing all day, and at night the call of
the whippo' will, the hoot of the owl,
aud the howl of thz wolf.' The editor
gives among others, the following rea
sons for selecting that location :
"We own the office, and we mean to
do what we please with it ; we own the
house, which we have had fitted up to
suit ourselves ; and we own the farm (of
230 acres) on which the printing house
stands. We have 6ix children, (the
yoangest ten years old,)all of whom can
and do set type. Our oldest daughters,
Nellie and Dollie, can set 1,000 ems of
type per hour all day ; they also write
stories for the paper, editorials, locals,
etc., and can use the scissors judiciously ;
while the eyes of our youngest daugter
begin to exhibit a poetically frenzied
" SCCCESS ON TllE 4TII.
Early in the morning, vehicles filled
with happy people from all parts of the
country came pouring to Dr. Schild
knecht's Grove, all glad to celebrate the
Ninety-sixth Anniversary of American
At ten o'clock the multitude gathered
around the stand, and Capt. Isaac Wiles
was appointed chairman. By appoint
ment of the chair, 31. 31. Butler was
made Secretary. The exercises were
then opened with prayer, by Rev. 3Ir.
Puckett, after which 3Ir. Puckett was
introduced as speaker. Notice of his
very interesting remarks we are obliged
to omit for want of space. Ed. He
ended by advising all to vote ftr that
good, faithful, brave, generous, tried
and true patriot, U. S. Grant. Cheers.
Recess During which time dinner
was provided by the ladies. We then
began to realize that truly this is a time
of feasting. Everybody seemed filled
with sociability, life, and good grub, and
before we realized it that hour and a
half had flown, and we were again called
to order, by the chairman, and enter
tained by some Literary productions,
conducted by 31. 31. Butler, among
which was the Declaration of Independ-
j j i. t it -
eace, rendered by Miss Olive Horning,
ten years oi age, ana some exercises Dy
twelve little boys and girls, concluding
with short, but pointed, speeches from
Hon. Samuel Maxwell, Capt. Wiles and
A pleasant, Eociable time followed,
and when the company retired to their
homes each felt that there was one more
day of pleasure added to their long list
of enjoyments of this life.

Talking of Grant's "nepotism," the
Ogdcnsburg (N. Y.) Joiiraal says: "It
is a way he had before he was called to
occupy the White House. Ilecommenc-
cd at Fort Donelson, which he gave to
his Aunt Columbia ; he gaye Vicksburg
to his uncle cauiuel lor a birthday pres
ent; 3Iission Ridge to his Cousin Yan
kee JJoodle, and Appomattox to Broth
er Jonathan. In order to perpetuate
this nepotism, he had to turn out Buck-
ner, l'emberton, Beauregard, Bragg,
Bob Lee. They all consider it an out
rage, but it made no difference with
Grant, for he did not stop as long as there
was anything to take.
