Part of Ilolbrook's Arizona expedi
tion have started and are in catup near
Pueblo, awaiting thebalar.ee of the tar
ty, who will join them within one week.
The party numbers fifty men, hare a
printing press and a full outfit for start
ing a new town in the diamond district.
The cold rain (Jt the last few days
have cleared the streets qf Chicago of
horses. Scarcely a team is to be ?een ;
brogans and tight boots, kid slippers
and prunello gaiters are all afoot this
Last fumner we had a gate that cer
Uinly shrunk so much it swunr clear ofl
the post by a good inch and a half. The
little 8pi3 catch would not meet the
lot that held it bv half an inch. We
beeame so annoyed at its swinging that
we concluded to fix an old fashioned
weight and chain to hold it shut. Just
about then eatue a rain, and behold?
our gate will hardly shut at all now.
How did it swell bo?. Do the boards of
the fence shrink and swell endwise, and
if eo at which end do they begin, and
bow do the posts get along while they are
p-ished this way and that? We have a
door closed by a button. In dry weath
er this button would not touch the wall
post by nearly an inch. Now it laps way
over. Does the button swell towards
.U J nnr.U
- iL , c , j , I
nailed on the studding and docs the
whole little room swell up, smaller, with
wet weather and dry bigger with clear
weather? Seriously, the dryness of the
atmosphere in NeLra-ka, and the singu
lar effect it has on wooden structures
and wooden vessels is something re
markable. It was very noticeable when we first
came to Nebraska, from a seaboard
State, but like everything else daily pass
ing before us, we fail to notice it now ;
but there is a vast difference between
this country and one bordering on a laige
lake or -on the sea. Before we came
here we could search believe in a piece
of lumber shrinking perceptibly, length
wise. A common wooden bucket never
fell to pieces if used around a stable or
the house, and wet every day. Hire
one must keep water standing in the t est
wooden pails, in July and August.
We never saw the spokes of a wagon
wheel get loose in the head. Here the
beat 4'Schutler" or the primest wooden
hubbed buggy wheel shows the exhaust
ive nature of atmosphere when a dry
south wind blows for days.
In short, we do not lack for sufficient
rain now-a-days to make crops grow,
but the air will suck out and d. y up every
vestige of moisture from anything ww id
ea more effectually than in any country
we wot of East of here.

One day last week we received a news
paper amongst our exchanges with this
very tnodjst '"request:"
"Editors receiving this number of the
Weefcfy, who in any maimer' notice its
contents, will greatly oblige us by tend
ing the papers containing the notice."
The paper is the celebrated 44 Wood
hull & Cloflina WeMy," and it is our
private opinion that they need not ask
it to be "noticed in any manner" for it
is pretty likely to be very effectually uo
ticed by all the Press of the land, and
if the editors and proprietors do not re
ceive the unfriendly notice of some offi
cers of the law before many days wc
In their Prospectus the reasons for
their su-petisi m last June are gwen,
and according to Wood hull it was not so
much the want of fund as the per.-i-cu-tion
she had to endure on account of Iit
free love doctrines that "wore her out."
She complains thai they would not ad
mit lit r to any of the first-class hotels
in New York, on account of those opin
ions of hers, while thy admitted gen
tlemen of known lewd habits and
Claflin has an opening editorial in
which she relates many things that our
typos would b!u-h lo sot up, and among
others, relates the story of what U S
Congressman do while in N w York
that proves both our M. C.s to he very
queer kind of men and J Tetmie C.
CK'flin to have held singular conversa
tions with such gentlemeu (for a Miss)
to say the h ast of it.
Wood hull then branches out and gives
us a feaiful description of. immorality in
high places, giving a l ing and detailed
statement of the infidelities of . Henry
Ward Uee'cher, the gnat Plymouth
Chyrch preacher, and the wife of the
editor of the the Gulden Age newspa
per, Theodore Tilton.
She says Beechi-r preaches to twenty
of his "mistresses" every Sunday, and
that Tilton is her pupil and almost a
convert to her theories.
After giving all these facts, she quotes
a letter from Lauia Cuppy Smith which
ends as follows :
44 The same evening I was conversing
with J' H. litft'kwith, a prominent law
3'er of Ltn-tt", who remarked that there
seemed to him to be a retribution fiHow
ig the Beecher., and that yon, (mean

The immigration commissioners of
Nebraska propose to gtt printed another
pamphlet and map of the iState 20.000
copies. But we would suggest that as
theU. P. and B. & M., and the Mid
land Pacific railroads are doing" a very
merit!rious work advet rising their owti
lands and those of the State in this way,
it would be more to the inteie-t of our
citizens to have the Board of Immigra
tion sub-cribe for a bun Iredpopies of
the weekly newspapers each, published
in the itafe, to be scattered wherever we
desire to influence immigration. This
would stimulate our new.-paper men to
give the world more local information;
would en ouing(j the press to woik in
behalf of immiarati ti ; persons abroa i
who are looting to the West as their fu
ture home, would read a Nebraska paper
carefully, who consider pamphlets n land

Indian re ervation lands, to be sold by
