A Harvest Hcno Festival
Episcopal Residkxck, Omaha, )
September 6, 1S72. J
To the Cler(j!f and Laity of Nebraska :
Dear liitEi iiukn : accordance
with the usage in some of our dioceses,
aud "at the reque.-t of neveral of our
clergy, I hereby appoint Thursday, the
3d day of October, for a harvest home
festival, to ba observed with suitable
services in all our churches.
God has most wonderfully blessed our
young State W'th abundant harvests
this year, and it is meet and riht that
we should receive the same wiih devout,
grateful, and joyful hearts. I therefore
recommend all our people on the morn
ing of that day to assemble in their va
rious churches decorated with all the
fruits of the field and the flowers of the
garden and offer to Him an especial
service of gratitude and gladness. The
Festival will not take the place of or su
percede, the National day of Thanks
giving, which will also be ob-crved when
appointed by the civil authority.
I recommend also, that either imme
diately after the service of Thursday,
the 3d of October, or at some other ap
propriate hour during the daj', the pa
rishioners of each parish should meet
together at some appointed place for so
cial intercourse, so that the day may be
in all respects a parish festival.
In MtLring the services of the day,
the clergj are requested to uo the Ser
vices and the Lesson, an 1 collects set
forth in the Prayer Book for Thanks
giving Da3, and to-askhe contribution
of the congregation lor Diocesan Mis
sions. I request also of the clergy, in writing,
some brief account of the manner in
which the day has been kept and the
festival observed in their respective par
ishes. Lot it be a day of real joy and of holo
gram ude, and God will bless.it for the
good of us all, and for the prosperity of
the Lauren, lam, very truly,
Your Friend aud Bishop,
Robert II. Claukson.
The Harvest Home Festival announced
in this letter seems to be a most excel
lent thing, and we hope to see it uni
versally carried out, and mado, as it can
be, a pleasant and memorable occasion,
and a real holiday.

Editor Hhiald: Perhaps a fow
lines from this section of Dakota may
prove of some little interest to the many
readers of j our excellent and energetic
Vermillion is located on the east bank
of the Veimiliion river, near its junction
with the Missouri. The Dakota South
ern Railroad will probably be completed
to this point someti!!U during th ; pres
ent season. As a consequence, the popu
lation is, of course, very much excited
over the prospect of wealth and noto
riety in the immediate future. Whether
their expectations are to be realized or
uot remains yet to bo seen.
Tne U. S. Land Office for this district
is located hero, and is, from all appear
ance?, doing a lively bu inoss. The de
sirable land?, however, arc a'l taken
within a radius of twenty miles.
Dakota is a fine country, but it docs
net reach the excellent standard cf Ne
braska, according to my opinion. Oth
ers, of course.moy think difierer.tly.
Timber is abundant in the immediate vi
cinity of the river. The out-lying coun
ry, however, is completely destitute of
thi important commodity.
The water of this locality is very poor,
it being very much impregnated with
alkaline- salts, aud is in man' wells unSt
to driuk. Imagine acmmeu table glass
of water containing a desert sponnfuil of
common salts and you will get a very
good idea of the taste.
The weather is tine for the season,
with the exception of an excess of heat'
ring the middle cf the da-. The
niL'hts are very cool ana pleasant.
Crops, cspccaliy corn, bus been very
seriously tiainageu oy giassiioppcrs ai;u

ieve, than usual.
Territorial political circles are con
siderably .agitated at present over the
election of legislators and other officers.
There was a Republican convention at this
poiut yesterday. The attendance was
quite large it went off very quietly,
however, aud nobody was seriously dam
aged, which speaks well for the morals
of the community. Now, Mr. Editor,
having exhausted my stock of informa
tion on Dakota, I will bring my commu
nication to a close.

evidence which fully establishes the con

the murder a prominent sporting man
saw this indiuidual in the vicinity of Na

suspicious. He watched him. Pres
ently two men came down the steps of
Nathan's mansion, who were j uried by
the my.-terious man, th thiee going to
wards North river. Ivnly the same
morr.injF three men entered a saloon on
Eighth avenue and left a bundle which
proved to bo a bloody shirt. On inves
tigation it was found a woman up town
had washed the shirt, which was a pecu
liar one. for a man now in Connect ic it

as that of the man he sawm the vicinity
of Nathan's house. On Wednesday
