Editor IIkkam: In our last we

we fear we shall have to "go back" on
our word. In fact there is nothing ne.T
to write about, everything Ls moving as j
it has been for the last year ; the same
thing of emigrant wagons rolling in from
the east, which to the unsophisticated
would make it appear that soma of the
eastern states were being entirely depop-

of Buffalo, bands of painted savages j

terror to the hearts of aiy hardy adven
turer that had ths bolJcs to push out
; beyond civilization arid pitch his teiit iu
the wilderness. . Armed .soldiers scoured
the plains, and in tire friendly shade of
the forest their "noeturuttl vigils kept."
The scene has changed ! the buffalo
have vanished, the red man no longer
holds dominion over the "beast of the
field and the fowls of the air." The
"Jogs of war" have been withdftiwn, or
sent still further towards the setting sun.
Civilization now holds sway ; on every
hand is heard the peaceful and busy
hum of (half) civilized life, the chil
dien of the white man. play upon the
greensward where such a short time ago
the children of the red man played, the
white man's cattle roam over th piai
ries or stand in the shade of the wide
spreading elm which has. served as a
trysting plao for man an Indian lover
and his dusky niatc..
These plains have been the scene of
some of the most fiendish atrocities and
damning outrages that ever blackened
the annals of Indian warfare.
If we were not relijriously inclinqd we
certainly would have to give veut to

nected therewith to our hearts content.
The HcrtJil comes to us lierally, to
quote a not very classical expression,
used up. Why is this thusly ? They
raay say that it is a good paper and con
sequently they like to read it, we admit
the fact, but dots this justify them in
appropriating our mails? Wh' don't

JOHN nttO'A'N, Represscntatice,
Lives in Greenwood, and is at present a
grain dealer, at the station there. He is
a young man of great promise. He has
always been known as a staunch, hard
working Republican. He is not an olhce
.seeker, nor a politician in any scne of
the word. His honor and integrity have
never been questioned, and if elected
our interests and those of the State at
large wiil be safe in his hands. It is a
ju-t and fitting reward that our young
men tried and true should receive such
gifts from the hands ot the people,
their neighbors,; and may this John

Has lived in this county for tixteen years.
He is well known to all our citizens, and
is at present engaged in the Real Estate
business, at Pluttsmouth. 31r. Barnes,
by unflinching devotion to the Repub i
can party, and by the strict integrity of
his life has well merited this distinction
from his friends aud the party. His
success is certain, for his merits are
known aud appreciated.
TIMOTHY CLARK, Commissioner,
Lives in Weeping Water precinct.
He came here three years ago from Illi
nois, is a farmer, a man of uieans, and a
good financier, as shown by his own suc
cess in life. Just such a man as the
county needs in the responsible position
of County Commissioner. He will fill
the bill, from all accounts, and make us
a model commissioner.

's C?;ni:2 o: Greel
The attempt n,ade by Mr. Davis yes
terday evening, in a sort ofjokative
maimer to stuooth over the bitter fueling
that exists among Deuiocracts towards
H. Greeley, was ridiculous. To me, an
Irishoian. they were disgusting, when I
recollect all that Greeley has said and done
against the Irij-h people. I can not for
get that during the memorable draft riots
of 'C3, in Ntw Ycrk city he advocated
the hanging of three Irishmen for every
Negro that was hung. Nor can I forget
his malignant attack, a short time after,
on the veneiable Archbishop Hughes,
and the Catholic Clergy of New York,
accuiu then of having instigated t lie
riots and advising the government to j
hold the venerable Prelate as a hostags j
for the good behavior of the '"brutal i
Irish," as he then, termed them I N ei
ther can I forget a few years later, the
i :.. i. .1.., i i
, . , nn ' u u
ii; uuiiu.u i!i'j x ii i .in iiuuuic?. lien
he alvisad tho British Government to
hang the last one of them, and did every
thing in his power to have the Fenian
Ganeral O Neil sent to the Penitentiary.
Nor can I forget what he said about the
Irish in las papef after the Orange riot
In New York City in 1S71.
He then wrote a long editorial de
nouncing the Irish Catholics in the most
bitter terms, and said that the Ameri
can eople ought to arise in their might
and drive the miscreants from the land,
are tki words he used iu his paper.
Horace Greeiey'a history has been one
great effort to oppose the progress
of the Irish race on this eoutinent.
No, Sir, I cannot forget these, and a
thousand other things, that Le has said
and done against me and my country
men. I cannot forget, no, never.

GJtZZlEY'S SPZSCH AT Pirr3B7T.3.
Greeley has made another speech and
it is. boiling over with rank secession
sentiments. He reiterates his old form
ula (hat if the South want to go, they
ought to go, and declare that of two
evils, a war, or a vore by which the
south would be allowed to secede, he
would choose a vote and let the way
ward sisters depart in peace. Whether
this compares with the best statesman
ship and the broadest views of the land
at the present day we leave our readers
As an evidence of what we may. ex pec',
should Greeley be elected, it bears out
the wildest charges that have been maile
in regard to the speakers unreliability
and treachery, w hich some people are
bashful enough to call eccentricity.

were better than one (if 'one was a cab

our i'. reman, a strictly temperance man
j who couldn't bear the sight of whiskey.
He stopped tle clicking of his-types in

wiped some lead Just off on his nose,
and thusly .spoke : ''Wall, yes, I'm a

How much more intelligent and faci
nating tho majority ofyoung ladies would
be. were they to give a little more at
tontion to newppaper reading. We do not
mean tho flash newspapers of the day
which are filled with, matter which it it
does no harm, can certainly do no good,
but to newspapers those which make us
all familiar with the present character
aud improvements of the age. It is well
enough to know something of the world's
history, but it is with the present we have
mainly to deal, and we know of no more
engaging trait in a lady's character, than
an intelligent acquaintance with passing
events. Every young lady should have
an opinion on the moral, mental, political
and religious subjects of the times, and
the best and only way to have this is to
read good newspapers diligently, and
think about their contents.

J The public seems to have overlooked
fl provision in the new nostaire law.
adopted at the last session of Congress
and now in force, providing that pack
ages ot dry goods, hardware and other
merchandise, weighing twelve ounces or
less, may be mailed to any part of the
United States at a uniform rate of two
cents for each two ounces. Thus a
package weighing twelve ounces may.be
sent bv mail to any part of the Union
for twelve cents. In England this fea
ture is called the Parcel Post system,
and the English people avail themselves
of it to an immense extent. When gen
erally understood among our people it
will probably become very popular and
J niav cut largely into the business of the
express com panics It a man can send
a twelve ounce package from Indianapo
lis to New York or San Francisco by
mail for twelve cents, he will not be lik
ly to pay the express company four or
five times that amount. But if the gov
ernment can afford to carry it for twelve
cents. th'J express company can do the
same, and the result may simply be
that on small packages tho express com
panies will reduce their charges to eov
