The last of the throe wa also a St. Ijoui
rrcolo, nf French c-xtractirn, a rou-in of
Sarpj-'s, an l t the earliest . priol known
of, was an Indian tracer either
for himself, Ssrpy or "The Com
"pany." Fie had all the characteristic
of theoM French stock of "Indian men,'
and whs ond is, a 'character" as orig
inal fcnd curious as any of the al-norma
growth of this country ; ctiused !y its
rapid prowth, and constant mixing of
diiTerent nations and elements together.
Lambert accompanied Fremont, as his
Lieutenant, on his first expedition to the
Rocky Mountains from whence h oh
tained the name of the "pathfinder,"
though Lambert thinks that had it not
been for a few plucky Frenchmen the path
would never -have been found, Fremont
to the contrary, nevertheless notwith
standing, lie wa coteiiiporary with
''Kit Carscn" a a guide and scout, and
better known, and of wider fame at the
setting out of that expedition than even
the renowned "Kit" himself. Lim-
bert'p fiery teraper and French dUp.o-i
tion Ptood in the way cf his adranca
mcnt, and the result was, that on the
return of the cavalcade to Sarpy's pot,
Lambert turned "Trader" again, and
ha not been heard of, while Carson be-
came a iiovernment ecout ot utme,
was mad3 a Colonel in the regular army.
and died Governor of New Mexico.
Liruhert moved up to Decatur io '50,
and has resided there ever since. It w-i
in hi3 ttore that all the early frolics wars
held, soma of the town councils an
around his doors Ihe "Claim Crab"'
gathered in force, and took a final drink
bef re they mirchel to dijp ji5s sen;
aspirant for "100" aerss of theirg)
nd. He claims to have built the i-ee-
onl cabin in the town, and we!i do I re
member it. It wis of rough ottoa
wood logs ahout 18x22, with a short
counter across one end, and four rojgh
shelves behind it. One-half the Kpace
in front of the counter, in the spring of
.YT, was piled to the ccilina with bufialo
robes, oticr, mink, coon, wolf, baaver,
ildcat. ?wiff, and other furs, and tanned
elk and deer ?kins. They smelled of al!
the various scents of the different beans
tli'.'y crew upon.
The In iians nn i tral2.-i fi i.td th;
place witu sm iko, the occupants ate par-
nd drank whikt'y. It was a'way
crrwd..d, alws-? daik, always smoky, al
ways full of the scent of "kinnej ksn-
riiek," anl you could euaW th'.; thin? as
far as you can hear a locomotive whittle,
f the uoor fetoiid open. Yet lively
times icck place in there once in a while,
I'aul Dominique, a Corsican, ran the
concern for Lanib:.Tt, and ODe Sunday
n Iri-h:i:an, a Scotchman, two French
men, feme half-breeds and Indians were
there. All but the Indian1! wem full of
whi-kcy, A the Irishman became ulm
nive on n-iionalify. Paul told him to trn
outdoors; he swore hi? wou'.d not, a, id
took a bottld out cf his pockut, an J
asked all hands to drink. Fa il airain
a-ked him to go out, and ha refused in
bitter terms faying : "No French son cf
a coul 3 put him out." 'xuwas
the most powerful man, take him alto
gether, I. ever mw outside of a circus
tent, he grabbed tha Irishman somehow,
iifteJ him clear cf tha ground, hurled
him through the door, and the next mo
ment was standing with one foot on his
throat, and . his k-en, short hunter's
knife in his hand. Several sprang to
catch his arm, but waving them oT with
an oath, he stooped to his prostrate foe,
and said , almost in the words of the
Arabic proverb, "you dirty, mean IrUh
, if I had not cat salt in your hou-ic,
I cut your throat from ear to car;" tak
ing his foot off, he added, "you drunk
now, come tell me dat when you sobr.
I do it yet-now go."
Among such scones and with such
people, was thr??-four.'hs of Clement
Lambert's life f-pent. Can you wonder
much if be was a little rough at times,
a little uncouth', a little well, unconven
ventional, not overly given to pdety, as
we understand it, not much on the
clothes, soma on the swear, and a "heap"
on the drink. Yet he could take eff his
hat and ay lllion sou; winf'iwt,'' to a
lady, with a grace and a fuavity that few
Americans could ever excel, whenever
he chose to do so. In fact, a French
man's natural politeness never wholly
leaves him, never is entirely forgotten or
I could aain fill a volume with stories,
anecdotes, and c-s.-ays, on those few

In these jearj many improvements
were mado. A church was built, the
Kpiscopal Church of the Incarnationi
and it was the firtt Episcopal Church
ever consecrated in Nebraska.
The river is one thousand feet wide
(average), and the rock bank in Nebras
ka eighty to one hundred feet high. It
has never washed away one foot iu thir
teen j-ears. In this bluff or bat k art
found three different kinds of mineral
paint red, yellow, and brown, and it
has been pronounced by judges in St.
Louis to be the best in the United States.
It is inexhaustible in quantity and quali

High on the top of it was, a few years
ago, the grave of the very pioneer white
san and pettier of the county. I mean
He was there before "Lewis & Clark's
expedition up the Missouri," a trader
and a trapper with the Indians. Wood
creek is named after him, and its mouth
is the initial point of the eastern termi
nus cf the treaty line of the Indian re
serve. He was buried herein a fashion,
half Indian ond half white man. In
his blanket, with his valuable trinkets,
gun, etc.; by him, sitting up, with h:s
face down the river, that he might see
the "Mackinaws" of the trader, as they
cauid up the river at intervals, ana
brought him news of the great world
he had left so Ion? and so compietch'.
I have said Sarpy started the first
trading post in Nebraska. I think lie
did. Wood was the first trader, howev
er, but his ' corral" could hardly be
called a post, and his solitary habits did
not allow cf his becoming a large trader
8j. T. Learning was the first mayer of
De:atur. and Frank Welch is mayor
now. Mr. Welch was also the first city
clerk, somewhere about 1S5S.
story is told of Pierce's advent in
Decatur, which is too good on both par
ties to keep longer, and I chall qo'e it:
"Fierce came up the river in a boat
that fu miner, t;nd landed at Decatur,
but it being a dark, gtormy night, no
one came ashore, nor did any one go
lown to the boat but John , who
lad some goods aboard. The Captain
tol l him he would put Lis goods "off"'
early in the morning, at daylight, if he
woull come down. Ucfore day, John
was up, and aft fIii goods, but it rained
still, ine Captain was beninl hani,
and he had to wait. Whi'e thus pacinir
the deck, coM aod wet and hungry and
cross, a portiy gentleman in an oil skin
coat and cap, joined him on deck and
opened conversation. ' Ni:-o ton site,
you got here'
os, it e a n ce site
enough, if old Pioree hadn't sped -d it
f ir a town."
"How so what di 1 Pierce do?"
"Made a fool of himself, and all that
came out here ; faii he nau sixteen
:ioues built here, and all that, nd there
wasn't a house old liar."
"Well, maybe Mr. Pierce did'nt know
this. You mint make some allowance
for him ; he thought the houses were

"May be you d m't kno? old Pierce,
as you call him. His' friends call him a
pretty fair man."
"No. I don't want to know him
Are 3'ou a friend of his, I wond.-r?"
"I'm old Pierce Himself."
John was too bashful to apologize,

TDK POLAND REPORT DISCUSSION.
Washington. Feb. 20.
The Poland report was of course the
only subject of concern to-clayj and the
Senate wing was without interest, and
at t'mcs that body was without a quo
rom. Tho Hjuse was in an
i n;allant MOOD
to day towards ladies and di i not admit
the etnbroyo citizens to the floor. The
naileries were tilled by chattering girls,
busy in flirtations.
BECK OF KENTUCKY.
Mr. Beck, Democrat, had the floor
first, and took ground-in favor of Mr.
Butler's report that the House had no
jurisdiction over the offenses other than
those committed during the session.
Mr. Beck is able, but disagreeably bit
ter and partisan.
He was followed by
the "Tall Sycamore of tho Wabash,"
universally esteemed as a good lobbyist
on the floor. He made what is usually
termed "an eloquent speech" in dt.fonse
of Mr. Brooks. Nominally it was
against the report, but in reality Mr
Brooks was Mr. Yoorhees client. His
argument was that of a lawyer appeal
ing to a jury a Wabash one, too sono
rous and loud-sounding, attraclive to the
car, but not as keen and pithy as Farns
It is quite curious to note how misery
or whatsoever il may be cilied, brings
strange bedfellows, for Mr Butler is the
adviser and friend of M.-ssr. Kerr.
Dawes, Yoorhees, Garfield, anl others
00 that side.
JOB STEVENSON, OF OHIO,
followed Mr. 'Yoorhees': Hehasagricv
iince and a hobbv ; the first against
Blaine, who has set upon him quite vig
orously, and ttie latter a- to his c pacify
f.r investigation. Mr. Stevenson, though
liable to go off half primed, is a good
lawyer and an honest man. He took
ground in favor of expulsion and showed
a keener insight into Congressional his
tory on Pacific Railroad matters than
any one who has spoken. He made .Mr,
Dawes, especially, feel very uncomforta

MR. BINGHAM, OF OHIO,
made one of his characteristic spceche
a rhetorical repetition of figures and
facts, with a considerable inva.-ion of le
gal and historical learning. Mr. IJing
natii, of course, argued against the ju
risdiction ef the House, as he favored,
as Chairman of the Juiiciary Commit
tee, Rider's report, lie is always in
teresting in creat debates involving con--titutional
questions and, as a lawyer,
his opinions are to be' "respected. The
attention paid , him shewed this. He
was surrounded by the ablest men on
the rloor, chairs baving been placed in a
S'. mi-circle to the front ot the Speaker s
chair. He cited and recited llnglish
: arliamentary history, but argued it did
not afford a precedent for American
Legislatures, acting under limited Con
stitutional provisions. Mr. Ringham
was c;:t off by the Speaker's g-ivcl in
i lie midst of a sentence on constitutional
rights. The House took pity at once
aud allowed him to finish.
GZN BANKS, OF MASSACHUSETTS,
followed. As he roc the vast audience
in the galleries and on the floor settled
themselves to enjoy what every one rec
ognized as possible, a treat in oratory.
In fine condition and voice, tha (reneral
held entranced th; attention of th thou-
in Is who wero pleaded to be listeners.
It was no matter what sidi he took, the
charm was in listenrttg. His argument
was keen and fitted with manner and
voice, taking, of course, the broadest
grounds of opposition to the Butler
doctrine of nop, or limited, jurisdiction.
His acknowledged reputation as a par
iiamentarian, well versed in law, history, j
and practice, ga-c weight to his words. (
In resard to Mr. Ames, his position !
can Irictly b stated as being that upon
Ames' own statments his conviction w;s
founded. Bending his eneigies to the '
Huetion of jurisdiction, h cited hi-tory '
and precedent to show that the power ;

him in a powerful and effective manner

ESITA2T P.YC:T2 THE ATLAS
We received a very handsomely gotten
up paper from Knglani the other day,
and around the subjoined piece was some
of Cornelius Sehaller's tracks we opine.
Read all about Crete and things:
Slit: Nebraska is rapidly earning for
itself the title of the "Britain bcyonel
the Atlantic." Though this rising
young State (it was admitted to the
Lruon only five vcars aaro), is bv no
means populous, it has within its bor
ders at this moment somewhere about
20,000 Ktialisb-born subjects. They are
nearly all doing well, fmd many ot them
have written home to their friends urg
ing them to go out West without delay.
I bad the opportunity of s- eing the
other day a ceititieate or round-robin
signed by English settlors giving their
present and former rcpidences, and ad
dressed to the Ge.-.erul Agent of the
Burlington and Missouri River Railway
in England, who has taken a leading
part in promoting emigration thither.
This certificate is in fact a testimony to
the excellence r.f the climate, the rich
ness and fruitfulness of the soil, and the
extraordinary a laptability of the conn
try for stock raising, and anyone who has
been in Nebraska most be aware that
the testimony here given of its advanta
ges is not in the ls.ast overdrawn. Mr.
Robinson, formerly the Mavorof Bristol,
has just completed a tour r.f that part of
America, and the terms in which he
speaks of the trontentmcnt ani prosper
ity of the llnsrii-h emigrants are highly
gratifying. One of the most interesting
of what may be trme 1 the B.itish Pet-
market and sells Lis services at the high
est rate which they will command in
competition with others. The man of
fees combines with his brethren to fix a
compensation for his services, which
compels the community to take them at
his variation or to do without them.
To pay that the lawyer and physician
have the advantage of all the other pro
fessions, is simply to repeat a notorious
fact. The lawyer and tho physician
who are thoroughly fitted for their work
can, and do, get rich. The clergyman,
tha editor, the teacher, and tho author
cannot, and do not, get rich by their
work. The brightest author in America,
though be produces books of universal
acceptation, can never get rich ; and
hardly one author in one hundred ran
realize enough from bis labor at the
present rates of copyright to rear a fam
ily in comfort. The teacher gets just
enough to live on, and no more, while
the clcrirvman and tho hired editor, save
in some instances, are obliged to prac
tice the most rigid economy in order to
live within :hoir income
We ate not among those who believe
that the salaried man gets enough for
his work. We shoul 1 be glad to see
hiin better paid, in all departments ot !
his labor. It so happens that he works
at tho very foundations of society, and
has his offico of ministry all through its
superstructure. He has (o do with the
morality, the education, the information,
the opinion, and the culture cf the so
cial mass. Take away his work, and so
ciety would degenerate into bari arista.
The importance of bis work cannot be
calculated. He is the inspirer, instruct
or, and conservator of our civilization ;
and he is as powerless to day to win a
competence for his old age, while ail
around him are getting rich, a'id receiv
ing the results of his. labor, as if he
were a child. The superannuated cler
gyman ekes out his life in the humbhsst
way ; the exhausted teacher peddles
books or drifts into some petty clerkship;
the editor breaks down or becomes a
hack ; and the author writes himse'f
out, or runs into drivel that wins the
scantiest pay and destroys whatever rep
utation hu may have won when his pow
ers were at their best productive activity.
There may I e exceptions to this rule;
but that this is the rule is beyond dis
pute. The men cf fees are the physician
and lawyer. One has to do with the
physical diseases of men, and the other
with their leiral quarrels and their
crimes. U'e do not, in the slightest de
gr e, disparage the usefulness of these
two classes of profes-ional men ; we sim
ply say that the better tho other classes
perform their work, theless th ho- ht'c 1
t do. They live upon the iniral and j
physical evils of the country : and there i
is no reason in the nature of thfir call-
i'lir for their advantage in pecuniary re-'
ward over the other elas-e.s. There is
to- reason why 9 2,:,'r-!' pr-t:' ioner o'"
uie-licine, r a specialist 111 lucdicitic or
sirgery, should sit in his office anl lake
in a single f-e, f.-r a service that costs
hi t! l.'!irt a minuics of time, a sum etiual
to that which a tciicber or a clergyman
works all d iy to win. I here is no good
rcas'.-r. for the setting of a price nnon a
surgical o'peration, pL-rformcd in half an
h 'jr, that the most su 'cjisful author'n
c pyritbt. cannot pay in a month ' It

F-.-cts the supply ot animal food lor the

ud in colder latitudes must have flesh
cat as a condition of health ai:i

cesMty in the Englishman's daily food,

ifiicient to supplvour wants. This i - a

The fact is we must have live catttle

step in advance next to be taken is to
convey cattle from the regions where
they are, or may be, the staple product
to the deusely populated parts of the

great regions whence such a supply is
possible. There is Eastern Europe ; but
