Late telegrams indicate that Xorth
Carolina hn.s given her vote for.IIayes
Si Whseler. Great frauds are claimed
by Republicans in Democratic coun
ties, which with some of the remote
eoanties not heard from, will make the
old North State llepublican. In that
event we imagine there would be a
sudden loss of interest upon the part
of the Democracy in Florida.
Mr. Amos Teft, one of tha best and
most reliable farmers of Cass and who
dwells in, and makes the town (almost)
of Avoca, called on the Herald last
week. We had a very pleasant chat,
and are always instructed and benefit
ted by hearing the views of such men
as Mr. T. We hope more of the sub
stantial farmers of the county will
drop in and talk things over now and
then. One half of our differences of
opinions in thi3 world comes from the
fact that we do not see each other of
ten enough, and understand each other
The Herald had the extreme pleas
ure of a long evening with Prof.
Aughey lately, and among many use
ful and interesting questions that came
up, the inevitable grasshopper got a
share, and the Herald is prepared to
answer a question or two that has
been propounded to it lately, Batisfac
torily, and on undoubted authority.
A gentleman from Iiatler county
thought the Hopper Eggs had to freeze
or go through a process of cold to hatch.
This is not so, and U settled beyond
dispute. When they germinate, the
egg3 swell, if they are buried deep, ex
posed to the weather, wet or cold, they
A Cas3 county man asks: if after
the young hopper is formed so that the
outlines the legs and wings can be
seen if they da not then have to lie in
that state until spring, anyway.

a full blooded hopper appears, or it is

Prof. Aughey has experimented with
hoppers for the last 12 years, putting
bodies of earth and eggs in various ex
posures at various times, and keeping
some all winter. His statement on
this matter may be considered thor
It has been suggested by Judge Wolf
and others that there be a general dis
cussion by the people of matters of lo
cal interest which will come before our
legislature during the approaching ses
sion. The suggestion is a good one. The
people need not expect that their rep
resentative will be able to do all that
should be done- alone and unaided.
The way of the legislator is hard
enough at best. He is expected to re
form all the evils and abuses in the
land, to keep the wheels of govern
ment oiled and running smoothly, to
legislate wisely and well upon the va
rious subjects presanted for his consid
eration, and while doing this "to
live within his income," which the
same i3 three dollars per day.
The suggestion that the people of
the several precincts of our county
meet at stated times and discuss such
questions as affect the local interests
of the people, and either through the
pres3, or by direct communication, ad
vise our representatives in the legisla
ture of the result of such discussion,
is one worthy of consideration.
We trust this proposition will be
acted upon, and that our friends will
keep the Herald informed of such
meetings, and of the action taken in
each case. The Herald may, and
probably will desire to have its say
upon some of these matters. It de
sires to act in perfect accord with the
will of the people, and to advocate
Doth parties pledged very freely dur
ing the late campaign in favor of leg
islative reform. Let the people assist
in carrying out these pledges.
Fellow citizens, and gentlemen elect
of the legislature, taxes are too high,
and expenditures more than they
should be. Let us have contraction.
Let us have reform. Let us disc- j
the ways and means to accomplish an
end so desirable.
A SOUTHERN PATER.
The Mansfield (La.) Re-porter, which
fairly represents the Democracy of
that State, says: "We trusted this
Northern Democracy once in 1800, and
they betrayed our trust by killing more
of our fathers and brothers and sons
than any other party, and now if they
fool us again and allow the heel of the
usurper to be again put upon our necks
in Louisiana, we hope God in His prov
idence n-ill everlastingly blot out the
ninp, fame, and memory of the party
which we have been allied to time out
of mind, but which alliance has
brought us nothing but destitution and
misery for tha last twenty years. It
ii thpir time to play now and not ours,
and if our people allow themselves to
be betrayed into the trap again, as they
were upon the memorable -Assault up
on Fort Sumter, they deserve no sym
pathy from the civilized world, and no
pity from the human family."
That Xellow don't go much on North
ern Democracy. However, we're not
taking war up hero any and think
there .are sensible men enough in both
parties to settle this matter without
bloodshed. Yet, a3 Nast says, "We
don't scare worth a cent."
Nothing new of interest from Soulh-Carolina.
THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
The three or four columns of daily
dispatches each morning, detailing tho
political situation, have become a dull
monotony, falling flat, stale, and un
provable' upon" the ear of the great
public. . Startling telegrams no longer
electrify the oft disappointed people.
As we go to press we are once more
obliged to chronicle the continuance
of the doubt and suspense which has
enveloped the country since the even
ing of Nov. 7th.
"We will have to await the end of
the official count" are the word3 we
hear everywhere, and in which the
opinions of intelligent men of both
parties find form. There, has been
some wild talk about war, indulged in
generally by men who have never
learned yet the meaning of the word.
This construction is the only excuse
we can make for language, which,
viewed in any otherlight, is atrocious
But there will be no war. Whatever
result may be reached mifst and will
be reached through the forms of law
and any conclusion so reached will bo
accepted, maybe, under protest,
but accepted nevertheless, with
out the deadly conflict of arms. Con
servative counsels at this time is the
duty of all men who love their coun
try more than party ; and for one we
are confident such counsels will pre
vail. There will come an end to the pres
ent suspense. One stage of the case
must, under the act of Congress, close
on the Gth day of next month, less
than one week from this date, that be
ing the day fixed by law for the meet
ing of the Electoral College in the sev
eral States. Prior to that time the of
ficial count or canvass of votes for
Presidential electors must be com
pleted. If there is any further contest after
the Gth day of next month it will be
transferred from the States to the
United States, and will be made when
the President of the Senate of the
United States opens the returns in the
presence of the joint couvention of
the two houses of Congress. Proced
ure there will be governed by the Con
stitution of the United States and nu
imjreous precedents already establish
ed, both Democratic and Republican.
While the result still remains in
doubt we judge from the general tenor
of dispatches that the final decision
rests with the vote in Florida. The
canvass of tho vote of that Stato be
gan on Tuesday last. Let us hope
that the eud is rnot fui off, and that
justice and right will prevail.
THE HERALD LETTER BOX.
The Herald wants to make an in
teresting family paper for both young
and old. We have tried hard to get
the tlder ones to write short letters
from time to time in all parts of the
country, but they are so busy they Pan
not or do not. Then the grown up
people have a trick of rushing them
all in at once, just about election time,
or only when some great excitement, is
going on, just when the paper is full
est, 'perhaps, and news the plentiest,
when wo could write columns about
the issues of the day ourselves, or clip
from other papers heaps of news about
thing3. Just then our average grown
up newspaper correspondent grows in
dustrious and hurls long columns of
matter at the head of the poor over
crowded printer and the exhausted
reader. Not but that many of these
are welcome and contain much sub
stance, often useful and exceedingly
interesting. We want those kind of
letters too, and as far as we can will
use them, but they are spasmodic, er
ratic We want some regular system
atic correspondents, and have conclud
ed to try the young folks. Now, how
many boys and girls in Cass coanty
will set down and write the Herald
a short letter, giving the home news,
the most interesting or curious tilings
they have observed in their daily life.
Try it, and we assure you if 'you don't
all write at once, we shall be only
too glad to print such letters. Let us
try it at all events and begin our "Let
ter Box" next week. Who will help?
Those who propose to try will please
not make them too long, write plain,
on one side of tha paper (or a postal
card) and spell the words as correctly
as possible. One, two, three, here it
goes; let's have youf letters.
New York, Nov. 29.
The Times has the following -special;
I hereby certify that the returns
from all the counties of the state, ex
cept Dade County, were this day open
ed by tte. board of state canvassers,
and the vote for electors as officially
announced from the face of the returns,
in detail, aggregates as follows. Hum
phreys, 24.323; Pierce, 24,324; Long. 24,
32:3; Ilolden, 24,323; Young," 24.284 ;
Call. 14,2; Hilton, 24,283; Bullock.
24,282. The first four names are the
republicans, and the last democrats.

Clerk or Board.

Omaha, Nov. 8 12:15 a. m.
The result in this State cannot be
accurately given to-night. Enough is
knnwn to show that the republican
majority has been reduced from 10,509
in 1872 to less than 3,000. Tim repub
lican national and statetickets are
elected, including the congressman.
The Legislature is possibly democratic,
or so nearly so as to give them bal
ance of power between the two repub
lican faction?. Nebraska will proba
bly send a democrat to the United
States Senate in place of P. W. Iliich
cock, republican. EfA. Allen,
Chairman Democratic Committee.
From the best sources the total vote
in tha State is 40,031. II irs majori
ty over Tilden and Coop-r both is
nearly Mm, an 1 G irber ha I 12,005
over both the others, and Welch lo,000
over Hoi man.
Dear Doctor, values have shrank the
last 3'ear, but tho Republican vota of

The Horse Hotel.
The are several large horse residence
in New York, They eacli have beds
f for hundreds oMrorses, and the dining
tables are a hundred times larger than
those of the "Fifth Avenue" and
"Windsor" put together. The Horse
Hotel, the largest one of all, is on third
avenue, betwen sixty-fifth, and Sixty
sixth streets. It ,is one vast iron
building, six hundred ft. long and two
hundred ft. wide, and covers an entire
block. It is three stories high with a
basement, and two thousond horses
belongi ug to the Third. A venue Rail
road Company reside there in a style
of splendor and luxury quite unknown
to horses who have never traveled
from their native farms. There wait
ing and reception rooms, nice quarters
for horses who happen to have a cold
or headache; there is a fine hospital for
hose who are very sick: there is a
house surgeon and shoe-maker, to say
nothing of a Cobler to put on new
heels or otherwise repair their shoes;
and there is a housekeeper and a wholo
army ot waiters and chambermaids ;al
so, a chief cook, with a dlzen assist
ants. Altogether, the hotel is unsur
passed for horse-luxury and elegance;
and if the horses could tell what they
think about it, doubtless there- would
be a mass meeting of tha guests, with
vote of thanks to the managers, or at
least a committee of three to wait on
the house keeper aud chief cook, with
an appropriate set of resolutions ex
pressive of appreciation of their -'kindness
and attention" and full of words
like "elegant apartments," choice
viands,""politcness.""uroanity etc. etc.
