Unto you we loudly sing:

We think is not the thine-

Your graves we're d Urging deep.
We'll let yon down in solitude
With old II. G. to sleep.
We will gire three groans for Greeley,
And three for B. Gratt Brown :
And we'll shout for Grant and Wilson.
As we drop your coffin's down.
Wo will tcrape the dirt upon you.
And leave you there to slumber ;
And lo dream of your disaster

Yes. for U. S. Grant and Wilson.
We propose to lend a hand :
We believe the honored soldier
To be an honest man.
Vote for him who fought our battles
Oa many a bloody field ;
The inflexible Ulysses
Who was never known to yield.
Once we've trusted, ocoe we've triad him.
And we did not trust in vain;
And the fifth day of November.

Then adieu to yon. old Horace.

Without laying ourself open to suspi
cion of infidelity, wc may be permitted
to ruggest that it is extremely doubtful
if the Supreme being is aware of the
existence of a Liberal party in this
State. There might have been some
knowledge of a Democratic party on
record above, some years ago, princi
pally on account of the curii.us style of
praying (?) many of them fell into ; but
as for the Liberal party, judging by the
way their Democratic allies treat its tuem
befs we are free to confess that only the
hand of Omniscience could raise them
to a position deserving tno contempt oi
any honest man.
Col. Warner is a eood copyist The
Omaha HeraM never states anything
that it believes to be untnie, and tne
Capt.-Col. never states anything be be-
ieves to be untrue "so help me God'
is his language, and yet he states and
rc -states that Horace Greeley is an hon-
est man, a very honest man, almost tne
only honest man we have now-a-days,
next to the Col. himself ), the ereme la
crane of honesty, in the face and eyes of
the fact that this same Horace Greeley
wrote these things :
From the N. Y. Tribune. October C5. 1867.
To smoke is a Democratic virtue ; ' to
chew is that virtue intensified ; tt drink
is that virtue in the superlative.
f From the Tribune. October 30. 1367.
This would amount to six in a bed, ex
clusive of every other vermin, for every
Democratic coucn in tne state oi ew
York, including those of Sing Sing and
Or, who said that "not every Demo
crat was a horse thief, but thut every
horse thief was Bure to be a Detnscrat."
Or that "the fewer the school houses
the thicker the Democrats," and "the
less a man knew the more certain he was
to vote the Democratic ticket from A to
Izzard." This is the fame Horace
Greeley who is now "clasping hands
across the bloody chasm the fanre
Horace who is the nominee and the can
didate of these men whom he called
horse thieves, liars, ignorant vermin,
State prison birds, and so on. Is this
honest? Can this be the action of an
honest man? We leave thinking men
to judge, nn i if it be urged that he is not
so vile, but only the candidate of these
vile men, (as he has told us), we reply
that the "fountain cannot rise higher
than the source,' and if he is elected
by the votes of the class lie called Demo
crats he will have to conform to their
ideas of right, and justice, and truth,
and by his own words they can have
none of either of these virtues. Hon

more, that he never exhibited any such

The Gate cf Ujzizs.
To the Editor of Retford and Gainsborough
Sir: When Diogenes, the Grecian
eaee. was bidding farewell to the people
of Myndas, where he had been hospita
bly entertained, he was asked for a bit
of advice as a parting present. Noticing
that the city gate was very wide, he
said, "O, Myndians, keep your gate
shut or your city will run out !"
A i 'nj.tr admonition now rings id the
European potentates. But,
WVM they have now no gates

jealous gate. Steam, on land and sea,

of past ages, had opened all old gates

California, the demand for laborers on

But nothing his so roused the Euro
pean millions of all classes to burst
asunder the gates that hemmed them in
as the tidings of the New Hf, its free
farms, no less for the stranger than the
native, with railroads ruuning among
them in advance c f settlements. Hence,
even in Nebraska, in the very centre of
the conUnent, witnin three years after
it became a State, there were settled
thirty thousand immigrants, represent
ing almost every corner of the world,
except Greece and Portugal.
Tiding of iertile lands near railroads,
free to all who will take them, seemed
incredible to those who had been wont
to view every landowner with awful rev
erence. Accordingly some gates began
to close again. But they will open
wider than ever, for those tidings are
certified as truthful by the United States
Commissioner of the General Land Of
fice, Washington, in an official naper of
sixteen pages, "prepared" in his own
words, "for the information of foreign
ers seeking a home in the United States.
Wherever this official document,
which is published in many tongues,
shall be read, its plain tale of truth will
make Old Worldlings feel themselves
imprisoned till they escape from the
gates by which they have been confined.

born abroad but resident in the United

On Sunday, August 25th, Bishop
Clarkson consecrated St. Stephen's
Church, Silver Creek, Nebraska, a name
sake and protrge of St. Stephen's Church
Philadelphia. This little church has
been a long time io building, but is now
fully completed, out of debt, beautifully
appropriate in all its arrangements, and
now has been solemnly consecrated to
the service of Almighty God. Two of the
missionaries on the lino of the Pacific
railroad, the llev. Messrs. Kippey and
Lyon, gave up their services for the day,
aud brought with them some of their
people to unite with the Rev. Mr. Shaw
and the bishop in the consecration. It
was a delightful service, even though
tho thermometer touchnd 100. After
the morning service was over, the clergy
and visitors were invited to the hospita
ble and ceuifortable turf cabin of the
Rev. Mr. Shaw, the bachelor missionary.
There we found spread under an extem
porized arbor a most inviting collation,
and over fifty guests were as satisfacto
rily entertained as they could have been
iu a great Eastern hotel.
We are glad to hear that the "Bach
elor Missionary" is well, and lives in a
'turf-cabin." How goes it, Bro. Shaw,
ouder the turf?
The Democrats must have been highly
edified by the speech of Col. Warner

A Straight Ans-wer to a Straight Qaestlca.
Referring to the IlerabI, Mr. E. E.
Cunningham's Plattsmouth paper a-ks:
"When did it ever tell the truth?"
The ready answer is, when it charged
that Surveyor General Cunnincham stip
ulated with a certain U. S. Deputy Sur-'
veyor to receive, and did receive, from
one-third to one-half the gross amount
of a double contract for surveying, as a
consideration for letting said contract.
thiuma Jural J, Sejtt. IS.
Thajik you, sir ! We have got you at
last. For once you have answered a
question, by making a plain, straightfor
ward statement. How do you feel? Is
there a comet comine, or what is about
to happen ? Now would you be so kind,
please, Mr. IleralJ, if this dou't strike
in and hurt, or anything, would 3ou just
answer one more question ? While your
hand is in it'll come easier, and before
you drop back into the old habit of ly
ing and prevarication, please answer one
question that this paper, "the little con
cern down in Plattsmouth," you know,
asked some months ago.
The name of that Deputy Surveyor who
paid Gen. Cunningham one-third or one
half, or any sum for a contract?
Until you answer this as fairly and
as squarely as the other question, about
your ever telling the truth, we shall
take no further notice of any insinua
tions about the matter. We don't want
you to squirm out nor wriggle away on
some one else's authority. You have
for once left the "I Believe, &c" out,
and stated fairly that Gen. Cunningham
did receive said sum and so on. We de
mand the proof, now, as before, weeks
ago, when you first insinuated the
charge. We want the name of the
Deputy, the time, the place, and the
amount of money paid.
The little concern down at Plattsmouth
awaits the reply of the august Herald.

General Garfield has to-day had the
first opportunity of 6eeing the charges
connecting iiis name wun receivmg
hares of the Credit Mobiier from Oakes
Ames. He authorizes the statement
that he never subscribed tor a single
hare of that stock, and that he never
received or saw a share of it. hen
the company was first formed, George
rancis Jrain. then active in it, came to
Washinston and exhibited a list of sub
scribers of leading capitalists and same
Members of Congress to the stock oi the

company, ibe suoscnption was sub
scribed as a popular one of one thou
sand dollars cash. I ram urged Ueneral
Garfield to subscribe on two occasions,
and each time he declined. Consequent-
v he was azain informed that the list
was nearlv completed, but that a chance
remained for him to subscribe, when he
again dec'ined, and to this day has not
subscribed or received any share, stock
or bond of the company. It is well
known here that under the Durant
reigme it was claimed by Durant tfbd
George Francis Train Train that some
six hundred thousand dollars of the
company's money was used in Wash
ington, but when the company attempt
ed to obtain vouchers and names of par
ies to whom payments had been m3de.

the very vague and unsatisfactory state

culating, and which beir close resem

George Francis Train.
Referring to Greeley's denunciation of
Grant for enforcing the laws which Gree-
ey himself originated. Judge Hoadley
tells the following pertinent story :
Jededmh Burchard, once preacning a
revival sermon, was interrupted by the
entrance of Aaron Uurr. Here comes
one,' 6aid the revivalist, against whom I
will testify in the day of judgment.

parts of Maine last week. In a number
of places the corn was killed, and the
farmers are cutting it for fodder.
All the world is wondering at the
ability of France to pay the three mill
iard francs that was just needed to pay
the part of the war claim of Prussia,
recently due. The Paris Univers says:
Three milliard francs would weigh, m
J, eleven hundred tons, lo coin this
uui at the rate of twenty francs a second,
would take five years. It would require
ten long freight trains to trausport it to
russia, ana a man walking rouna tne
world twenty-five thousand miles
might drop two louis-d"or (forty francs)
at each step, and he would have many
left on his return." And yet in three
ays after this loan was advertised,
twelve times the amount wanted was
ffered. Tho. amount asked by Presi
dent Thiers wa 3.400.000,000 francs or
about $680, 000, 000- of our money. The
mount tendered, or actually arged on
the government, was 41.641,000,000
francs. J he largest sum r ranee ever
ried to raise before was 750.000,000
rancs. This was during the Crimean
war. u: tnis amount oniy oU-,wv,wu
francs were subscribed. It looks as if
capitalists had faith in the French re
public, the f.mpire could not realize
half what it wanted, but the Republic
is offered twelve times the amount it
asks for. Prairie Farmer.
The Republicans of Illinois are in ex
cellent spirits, and are confident of car
rying the btate by as large a majority as
they gave in 1868 more than fifty
thousand. Koerner has almost given

He authorizes your correspondent to
make the most positive denial of the
charge so. widely circulated cf late, that
he received from Oak3 Ames an inte
rest in credit mobiier. tie wishes the
denial to be made in the most com pre
hensive sense, and at the same time so as
to meet every detail of the scandalous
chanre. He never invested in credit
mobiier, or in its hhares, bonds or stocks,
nor has he ever received from any one or
owned any interest of any kind in that
company, nor m bonds or stocks ot the
Umon Pacific Railroad or of any other
railroad or corporation that has been be

been in the Senate.
The Omaha Herald is up to its nsua
tricks. It charges that Jno. M. Thayer,
Sam. Brown, and a number of other re
spcctable business men of Omaha gave
snms of from $200 to $300 towards a
corruption fund, in order to save their
darling Capital, Omaha. Now, there is
not one particle of proof to show that
CoL Furnas received this money.- These
gentlemen paid their little old $200's
and $300's, no doubt, but by the Her
ald's own record they did not know to
whom the money was to go, "nor who
was to be bought ;" and now the Her
ald assumes that the man was Col. Fur
nuas. Why does not J. M. Thayer or
Sam. Brown, on whom the Herald con
tinually cries, come forward and ttate
that CoL Furnas received tho money ?
Because they do not desire to tell a false
hood and they do not know that Furnas
received the money.
Bnt we know and the world knows
that the same $3,000 or $6,000 that was
raised, was paid into the hands of two
Democrats, unscrupulous partizans and
sharp, shrewd men. Who they paid it
to has never transpired. It might have
been Miller, for all we know.

From the Lincoln Jvumal.

We have just one word to say with
reference to its cowardly attempts to
blacken the character of an industrious,
intelligent, and public spirited citizen
like Mr. Gosper, without haying the
manhood to make charges against him.
We will bind ourselves to prove the
man, whoever he is, that dare say cate

Statesman sneakingly insinuates, a liar
within 43 hours after such charges are
made, and we will prove him so by the
We will prove that he lies in general,
and that he lies particularly in every
specification that is insinuated.
We will take particular pleasure in ac
complishing this easy task as soon as
any man or any newspaper has the
"sand" to give us occasion to do it.
Until such charges are made, we have
nothing to offer, and fehall not even
waste our contempt upon a mode of at
tack that the most abandoned "yaller
dog" in the land would be ashamed of,
as soon as he had emerged from his nrst
month of purpy-hood.
This meets our views. If any man,
or any candidate is proven to be corrupt
and a thief no good Republican desires
to support him, but just so long as these
matters are confined to asking "perpen
dicular questions" and tomfoolery gen
erally they are not worthy of notice.
Asking questions proves nothing.
charging proves nothing, and only de
bauches the people. The very words
themselves, of crime, have lost their
force iu this State by the foolish and
reprehensible practice of newspaper
charges against well known and upright
citizens. Give us some proof that the
