From the Oneida Circular, August 19.
A correspondent itquires whether our
publications have ever contained any ar
ticles by Horace Greeley ou Fouiieiisui
or fcoeiah.-m. e suspect that the in
quirer is an enthusiastic advocate ot
the ijiweial Kepubhean-Deuiocratic can
didate, aud would be glad to obtain evi
dence that Mr. Greeley has had iittle or
nothing to do with the sociah-tic move
ment in this century ; but it is possible
that heisau enthusiastic Orant man, and
is hunting for evidences of Greeley's
past social radicalism. In either case,
the inquiry evinces a lamentable luck of
familiarity, not only with the past publi
cations of the comuuication. but with
the current literature of the bsst thirty
years, for the introduction ot louner-
ism into this country, and fur the scores
of experiments in practical as-'ociation
which followed, Mr. Greeley is tar more
responsible than any other man save Al
bert Brisbane. He opened the Tribune
to the Fourier propagandists : he wrote
and lectured on Fourierism ; he visited
various associations ; re attended rour-
en-tic conventions ; he became the treas
urer to one association, and offered to
loan Sl2,OO0 to another ; he pledged his
property to the cause ot association; he
carried on in the Tribune a six months'
controversy with Henry J. Uaymoud,
editor of the New York Tinutt, on the
ubject ot beuneristu, in which he de
endtd the principles of the French phi-o.-opher
; and in a thou-and other ways
he expressed his great intere-t in the
cause ot soeia'ism. we have already

x CUIi TICKET.
We hoist to-day the Republican Ticket
of the State, and we may safely adi:
from a personal knowledge of most of
the candidates, that no stronger or bet
ter ticket could have been made.
The convention was a very peculia
one for Nebraska, and contained more
ri f-w men than any convention of the
kind which ever sat in this State. Al
talk of men being nominated by any ring
or "set up" game in that convention is
just idle "gas." The men who were
nominated there were nominated on their
merits, and b3r the same token we shall
carry the State next October by the
largest majority it has ever given yet for
true, honest, out and out Republicans.
CASS COUNTY 'AT THE FAD.
The specialty of the county seemed to
be plums, peaches, and a remarkably fine
pecimen of the penock. This is all the

wait to see it bloom ; so sorry.
We now come to class 5, Agricultura-
products. Mr. Hesser had 75 varieties
of vegetables, 3 of Irish potatoes, 4 of
sweet the finest we-ever saw.
A. J. Caldwell, class C, different kinds
of giass and timothy seed.

We have just returned from Lincoln
and have not much time to write a great
deal. The nominations are considered
good ones by those best acquainted with
the parties. The convention was still in
session when we left. They had nomin
ated S. A. Strickland for one of their
Electors, Otto Funke of Lincoln, for
another and Watson B. Parish of Burt,
bid fair to be the third candidate.
It was generally understooi that Sam
uel Maxwell, of Plattsmouth, and Mr.
Gant of Neb. City, would be the nom
inees for judges in the places of Judg'-s
M isfin and Crounse.
