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.

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. We have the authority of Messrs. Touzalin and Scott, of the B. & 31. iu Iowa, for this statement, and all Nc braskian?, as well as our our B. & M. friends on this side of the river, who talk Greeley may take note how accepta ble such a President would be to this people. TUl'KK RAILROAD. Bonds .for the Trunk railroad were carried in Richardson county, on Satur day last, by a heavy majority. A proposal has been submitted to the voters of Otoe county, by which their bonds may be made available to the Trunk road. Their bonds at present al low no road to use them for building purposes, any further north than Ne braska City. This agreement is now modified to extend to the northern line of the county, and thi3 proposition wi undoubtedly carry. Cass county comes next, and it is time we bc6tir ourselves. Our County Com mbsioiiers had the matter under advise ment at their last meeting, we under stand. It is of vital importance to the people of this county. Wo would suggest the propriety of submitting a proposition at once, giving bonds to the road that first builds and completes, ono of two route?, viz Along the Missouri river to the north line of the county ; or up the Weepin Water valley to the same line, or west ward to Ashland, or both, as the pcopl may demand. on DisHAiwmxu parties. They talk about disbanding the party and say Grant is corrupt. Admitting for a moment, and for the sake of argu ment, that every word charged against him were true, would that be a ju cause for disbanding our party, after the precedents the Democratic party have eet us. With the election of Jeff. Davis and all his crew in the South, with the Tarn many ring and Tweed's frauds in the North, it cannot he a convincing argu ment from their side of the house that the election of one corrupt man to office should disrupt a party. If so, th Democratic party should have disbandei years ago. They still claim life and vi tality, however. How long a Demo cratic party will exist after the Balti more Convention meets remains to be seen. The day is at hand. LOOK UKIOIIC YUU LEAP. 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 personally, has been industriously eircu Iated, and is often honestly believed, no doubt, by our German friends, to be the fact ; hence they say " we will not vote for Grant." 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? Not much. 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 a quiet, determined little man, who doesn't think Charles Sumner has all the brains on the continent, and knows all there is worth knowing of European politics, and behold the immaculate Charles flies the track, and charges cor ruption and fraud, buying and selling of Arms, on the party that for twenty-five years has sustained him, and in which he found no fault until he could not rule a certain part of it. Think these tilings over, and by your own judgment of human nature deter mine how much credibility and honor there is in such mens' asseverations and charges. ' Peter H. Watson, from Ashtabula, Ohio, is elected President of the Erie road, and Gen. A. S. Diven, Vice-President. In future, the Eire road will work in conjunction with the Atlantic & Great Western. Tbe Illinois Liberals. ' Mack," of the Democrat, and one of the sharpest newspapermen we have, closes his letter from Springfield in this wise : THE DEMOCRACY BURIES ITSELF. The proceedings of the conventions have been characterized by a decree of intolerance as to personal preferences which has never 5ef-re been witnessed in such gatherings- Under instruction roni .New lork, every man who was not known to be Jbr Greabv was ostra cised and proscribed, with the exception of one or two, who, it will be seen, were openly denounced. The Democratic party of Illinois not only dug its own grave to-day, but got into it and shoveled the dirt cd up oi mcA. Mack. 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 point. . 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.

It was unauimously carried. D. H. Wheeler tendered his resig nation as President of this Society. It was unanimously rejected, and Mr. Wheeler wa3 retained President of the Society. Mr. Brown moved that John Cum- mings be elected Superintendent of the Fair Ground, which was unanimously carried. His duty is to keep the fencing in repair and cut the grass for the benefit of the Fair, and keep all stock off the ground and take general supervision of the Fair Ground. It is decided that the Committee on Premium list will meet and revise said list," and have it published as 6oon as practicable.

The Omaha Herald of this morning contains a letter from Plattsmouth sign ed 'Horace, which charges, that Alfred L. Brown was recently "discharged frcm the position of Chlrf Clerk in the Sur veyor Generals office, because he teas for Greeley." This charge is utterly and entirely false, and was evidently invent ed, circulated about town, and furnished the Omaha Hera Id by this unknown scribbler for the purpose of manufactur ing political capital by prejudicing public opinion. No restraint has ever been exercised or attempted on my part over the politi cal opinions of any employee in aiy office and no change has ever been made in the clerical force for political reasons. I believe the truth of this statement will be substantiated by all employees of the office including 3Ir. Brown. I do not "know who 'Horace' is, and do not care, and t-hould not notice him at all, but that his falsehoods have been. admitted to the columns of a paper pro fessing respectability. All that I ask of 'Horace' 'or any other man' isthat when he has a charge to make agaiust me, he aocs it like a man, over ms own sig nature; and not like a coward sneakin behind the secure cover of an assumed name. E. E. CUNINGIIA3I Glendale, Cass Co. Neb., July 3, 1872. ) 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- dote, &c, &c, and give us your advice, then we can tell whether we will abide by it or not. While waiting for your de cision, will write a little in regard to crops. 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 to hurt, in any of the email grain. The corn and weeds have been running a close race, but corn is ahead now, and will likely remain so. In our truck patches both truck and weeds are flour ishing. Are you thinking this is enough from Glendale. Well, then, adieu. From Esc 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. S. P. Hardy. Our Greenwood Letter. Editor Herald :--It has been some time sioee I have written for the Her ald. But I expect to keen the other portions of Cass county posted in regard to events in this locality. I claim things change with time, principles never, men change from policy, boys change in youth and men may in second childhood. - Horace Greeley evidently is in his second childhood, such a man or child thi3 lo cality fails to appreciate, or else he is too well appreciated to receive the votes of this community. We are all for Grant and Wilson here. We are going to hold and skin the Democratic Liberals while Grant tans iheir hides and Wilson pegs it to their souls) soles, and to this' end we are at work. July 3d we organized a Grant & Wilson Club, by adopting the name for our Club, and setting forth the object of the meeting, which was for the rtrnmotinn of the election nf Grnnf. I & WiLon and the suecess of the straight unadulterated, uudefiled Republican ticket of Nebraska. The meeting was called to order by electing James Waters temporary chairman, and W. D. Wild man, temporary secretary, and leaving permanent organization until the next regular meeting which will be held at Greenwood July 22, 1S72, at 2 p. m., Several loyal men came forward and signed the roll of honor. Harvest has commenced in the Bar ley, Winter Wheat and Rye, aud there is an immense crop of Spring wheat and oats with some flax in this locality all of which promises very fine. One thing more I wish to state, and it is this. The boys in blue from here cannot toler ate the man who is Jeff Davis' bail and right hand man. That is the reason we did not turn out. Oh no Granny, we are too old birds to bo caught by such chaff as that, if all tho Generals and Judges go over in Nebraska, we are for Grant. Yours in haste. A. B. 31. The Democratic Elberal Ofllce-EXolil- itix Ntate Ticket. 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 gates to bpringfield, tho (Jook county liberals chose thirty-three of them lrom the ranks of the great army of office holders, ex-officeholders, and defeated candidates for office. Inter- Ocean. How is this for reform and purity f The following from the Lincoln States man is by Sammy Davis, we know, for we heard him tell the story once, and like to died a laughin', we did. Sammy is one of the cutest newspaper men we have iu this State, by the way. One day on 'Change a well dressed merchant drew us one side, and asked us if we wrote up the river column for the Republicun. We told lam that we did. He now began to unfold his tale : 'You see, the matter upon which I wished to speak to you about is this : There are a couple of boats on the river, that are running m direct violation ot the law, and without a genuine Inspec tor's certificate. They are the oldest boats now running on the river ; their loilers are rotten from end to end. Their hulls are mere shells, and they are liable to go to the bottom at any moment and kill a thousand men, women and children. Their proprietors are the most mercenary scamps" that ever run a line of boats on the river, and yet not a reporter iu St. Louis has got the sand in Ins craw to show up the outrageous mat ter to the public." "lhe names oi the boats, please : "The 'Wicks and 'Church.' " We thanked our informant kindly, arid rushed back to the office, tilled with the idea that we were about with a few strokes of the lead pencil to expose a great piece of rascality and save untold human lives, besides demonstrating to the city that we carried a plenty ol 'sand in our craw, went lor the two steamboats aud their owner in a sty very much like the New York Times ex posing the corruptions of Tammany Ring. The next morning, Hyde, the editor, called us up to his room. We felt pretty good over this, expecting to be complimented on our great expose. lou wrote that article in the morn ing s issue, on tne icks ana 'Church?' " We answered "1 es, very modestly "What in h 1 did you do that for you infernal fool? That line- of boats gives us five thousand a year in adver Using. Besides it s all a blasted lie. 1 guess we've got about enough of your damn foolishness on this paper, lake this note to tho cashier," he continued hastily scratching a few lines on a piece of paper, "I would advite you to leave town as soon as you can We started down stairs, and handed a red headed man in the lower office the note. It read : Give this man a week's pay and a pass to Chicago- Hyde." lie handed us S25 and filled out blank pass on the St. Louis, Alton & Chicago road. As we stepped out of the ofiice we met a man from 'Change who ftopped us and made us acquainted with Capt. A , of the steamboat line to which the "Wicks" and "Church belonged. We can't convey the faintest idea of the cyclone of invective which that man poured upon us for half an hour. Tbe air got thick and heavy and we thought we smelt the sulphur and breathed the smoke ot a battlefield, lhen he stODoed completely exhausted and out of breath, and invited us to come down and see his boats. e went, and found them bran new and just off the drii docks. The Captain showed us blandly round, - .. . every once in a wnne remarking in a grim humorous way : Look out for fresh paint, mvbov: don't get your clothes against that new varnish.

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 appearance."
