During the campaign it will be impos
Bible to arrange our matter in such a
manner as to give c!l our agricultural
newj ia one column. We shall none the
less attend to the wants and needs of
the farmer, but owing t J the press of
matter crowding us, and the fact that in
running a daily paper we have on Thurs
day a very busy day going to press
with two papers on the eame day, is ne
joke and with the help that a country
newspaper can afford, our matter gets

Habit and use enable a ru in to bear
the most rigorous climate with comfort.
The same causes operate with like effect
on the mental dispositions of mankind.
An editor is so accustomed to hear peo
ple denounce him accuse him of bad
motives and false prejudices, that he
gets callous and careless about remark
and innuendoes that pierce other people's
jackets. Once in awhile we are' force i
to laugh at the utter UD.comciou.-rjeaJ
with which persons will set down before
an editor and utterly demolish, to their
own satisfaction, some theory that he
has perhaps but that day advocated, to
tally ignoring the idea that he may hnve
any personal feeling about what he has
said or believes.
A foreigner will very coolly step iuto
the office and berate America or Amen
cans by the hour. The editor li-tens
with patience, pities his weakue-, and
lets him pass. Worse than a dry goods
clerk is he told twenty times a week that
he never tells the truth, and that his
business is to lie, and he is expected to.
take it all in good part. But let him
turn round and say a few word that cut
on the readers' prejudices, nationality or
business whew! what a niu-is Licked
up., and "stop my paper," shouts one,
"let's lick him," tugged another ; but
really, human nature is better th-rn we
think, for neither threat is put into exe
cution. A day or two of grumness, a
muttered growl or two as they paes, and
it is forgotten.
While taking charge of a county news
paper once, we gave some of our particu
lar ideas about clergymen and their ser
mons, holding that every man should try
and fit himself for the walk in life that
he proposed to fol ow, and that a clergy
man had no right to come into the pul
pit with awkward manners, bad delivery,
or inferior language, to address his peo
ple Sunday after Sunday, ; that lawyer.-,
actors, and every other class of men
overcome their natural disadvantages if
they hoped to succeed, &c.
As usual, the town had twice as many
churches as the needed and three times
is many ministers as she cculd comfort a
hly support, and the next day no less
than six Parsons waited on us to know if
we meant lam. It took us aback; we
were not personally acquainted with any
of the gentlemen, and our remarks had
been founded on general observations,
in 1 not on particular eases.
Just so in politics; when we say
iVuioerats did this, or Germans db.i
that, it is not intended to charge that
Jones over the way whs per.ieiiy the
man who did the act, or that Schmidt
up towu was tho individual responsible
for the misdeeds of a parly. Great
events can only be treated on a broad
basis. The average acts of a party or a
sect must be taken as a standard of
measurement and not the acts of indi
viduals; and the editor who does his
duty, so treats greatque.tions. Ouly
small miudfnarrow everything -down to
themselves, their town and their county.

Arriving ou the ground at an early hour
we found every t hint; apparently in read

the use of the speakers, and upon it was
placed the "indispensable" organ.
Something, however, was apparently
stiil expected, and we were not long in

beheld the Stars and S'ripes unfurled,

Miss Rankin had instructed them. The

by Miss Anna Fitch, Miss Caddie Craig

the diminutive size of the speaker, to
gether with the sarcastic character of the
piece, and so well accented and infleejed,
rendered Charley the object of much
loud admiration for a time. Rev. Berge

an ancient city, and large, for the State
of Nebrarka, "a cot dly bairn, for a
Uiithor so young " Has Plattsmouih
ever heard of her little but fairer si-ter,
Decatur? Have you become unfaithful
to, or forgetful of your first love? Ol
all that I have heard you herald since
you left her caresses and crossed the
Platte, I've not heard you even breathe
her name. Have you told our cousins
aud aunt "Cass" that aunty Burt h s
tens of thousands of mos beautiful fer
tile land. to idve them for less than some
of th,eui pay as taxes per iicre, in her
own possessions. Have you told your
cousins of our gold n tpting-, our grand
valleys, and stately aud immeuse forests?
Let me help to keep you iu mind of De
calur and Burt, by telliug y ou of her
latest good deed, and grand.
She invited all the good people of
Burt and Wiuoua couuties, and the
original Omahas, to visit her, diue and
make merry with her in c lebiaring the
Fourth. On that gloriou- day, 1 beheld,
and lo! a booth pavilion, extending
from the grand Fuller House under the
trees, to Goodelfs corner, within it two
tables extending its whole length, and
capable of accommodating at one sitting
nearly 700 guests. Midway, in front of
Main 6treet, an orchestra and speaker's
stand, and on the right are Ice Cream
and Lemonade stands. This was at S
o'clock a. nl. Ten came, andlo! teams
from the north and from the south, from
the east and from the west, came in
numbers great, bringing the old and
the young, the grave aud the gay. At
11 30 the street and square presented a
grand aud pleasant sight a va-t and
cheerful throng. Ou the stand, fair
creatures all eUd iu white, and arrayed
with blue sashes, bearing on their

bestowed on the camp of Israel in ancient

those tables, between the hours of 1:30
and 3:00 that day. There then was mu

Plattsmouth, July 13, 1S72..
Ed. Hkkald: Geu. 'Livingston, it is
?aid, in bis speech at the Democratic
Greeley arid Brown ratification, at Fitz
gerald's Hall, last Thursday evening,
deuounced the "Ku-Klux act," and so
called ' force bills,", as "a transfer of
shackles from the limbs of black to the
bodifcs of white men. He held in gen
eral terms that the Republican party has
accomplished its real and legitimate mis
sion ; that it present measures and poll
cy are extreme proscriptive and un-Re-publican;
that the "bloody cbasm'
sh- u!d be closed, &c. So far the Gen
eral's speech was a very fair average
Democratic argument. But when he
made his application, " therefore, vote
for Greeley," he played the mischief
with logic, consistency, and fact, and
must have sounded queer to the ears of
his audience. "Therefore vote for Gree
ley," the advscnta of all the radical re
construction acts of Congress, who only
last year said iu his Tribune "I therefore,
on every proper occasion, advocated, and
ju-tified the Ku K!ux act I hold it es
pecially desirable for the South; and if
it does not prove strong enough to effect
its purpose, I hope it wiil be made
stronger and stronger.'' And again, in
.May, '70, 'The law applies only to Presi
dential aud Congressional elections,
though wo heartily wish it could be
made to apply to all others."
Thee wre Greeley's words one year
ago. They have never b en revoked

The Signal, published at Ventura,
California, thus enumerates the valuable
poitits of this hor-e :

Of the adoption of Greeley by the
Democrats, the Nation says : "It must
be admitted the nomination of Greeley
by the Democrats will be, on the whole,
the mo-t ludicrous which ever overtook
a great organization. We know of noth

which it can be likened, except the rush
of the swine, in th- New Testament,
"down a steep place into the sea." when
