We h:Hl a very pleasant party here
the other evening. Mr. .Maddock, our
faithful mail carrier has for the past
fifteen years been a subject to niatri
mony, and during that time he has
fought the battles of life bravely, with
the able assistance of his amiable
lady, who lias strewn his path with
dowers, and has assisted him, to ad
vantage in all his undertakings.
There was a large number of poisons
present ; after the ceremony had been
performed by Rev. II. T. iVi.lv, of
Nebraska City, the guests itpaiied to
the dining room w here a sumptuous
repast was in waiting, to which all
did ample justice. After supper the
lovers of the light fantastic tied to the
dancing hall and kept step to the mu
sic, until wee sraalll hours, when all
the young ladies and gentlemen left,
well pleased, and hoping that in fif
teen years frtm now they would be
going through the same ceremony.
Among the numerous presents re
ceived, were a beautiful liutter Dish

Our new church is not finished;

Our string band is doing a lively
business. .Yours truly,
Ed. IIekald; In the columns of
the Herald of the loth inst., a cow
ardly attack is made upon my charac
ter under cover of a fictitious sigua
ture "Quill". It is a notable fact that
whenever an unpi incipled party
wishes to assail and injure the char
acter f a person, he will write an ar
ticle to some paper over a fictitious
danie, in which by inuendo, or false
charges he will insinuate that said
person or has done some ter
ribly bad thing but never in such a
way as to be known. No, lie is too
great a coward to come, out openly
like a man. "
Men, when they prefer charges
against a fellow citizen, do so openly;
but "snakes in the grass" dare nt,
save the rattlesnake, which always
gives warning before he strikes, unless
first assailed. This writer is more to
be despised than a rattlesnake; he
tries to circulate a slanderous
statement, not only against
me, but , against others. with
out anyone but the editor knowing
who he is. He reminds me of the
foolish turkey, which, when its head
is out of sight, thinks itself secreted.
But why am I so basely attacked?
Simply b&eause I favor temperance.
Some of the whisky ring and their
allies are trying to do me all the in
jury they can, with the ostensible ob-

M:i tlfte new
Movase, next. to
ject of injuring my influence for the
But turning, to the charge, "Quill"
says: "and now comes railroad master
who swears he will prosecute said
lawyer for stealing coal from said
company, unless said lawyer keeps
mum on the lumber question." If I
have stolen anything, why not prosee
cute me anyway V Road master, by
saying that if I don't keep mum about
his taking the lumber, shows that the
threat, as well as such a prosecution,
is and would be, a malicious one.
Why wait till he is prosecuted, if I
have done anything wrong and he is
in the right. The fact is, we don't
charge the roadmasler with taking the
lumber; we charge and shall bring
suit against the B. & M. R. R. Co. for
pay for the lumber which said com
pany jayhawked, and nnv, are un
willing to pay for.
"Quill" claims to be a temperance
man, though for the sake of being
popular with the whisky ring is hyp
ocritically doing all he can in their
interest, as he aspires to be our next
county superintendent. He, as is his
practice, is ever trying to carry water
on both shoulders. Quill slander
ously speaks of the bite Johnny Sulli
van. Well, we don't wonder that he
has courage enough to slander an un
fortunane dead man under a fictitious
name. In speaking of the great mis
fortune of Mr. Win. Cleghorn, Quill
says: "It is supposed that a blunder
in setting the limb kept him in bed
some months longer than would have
Leen necessary had no mistake been
made." This is a delicate subject, and
I don't like to sav much about it.. But
the limb was set by Drs. Waterman
and Hasemier and we believe tl.ey
did the best they could for Mr. Cleg
horn and perhaps as well as auy
other surgeons could have done under
the circumstances. Xaw, Mr. "Quill"
if you want a newspaper discussion
with me I challenge you to have the
courage to come out like a man and
not secret yourself in the dark, to
stab me and other respectable citizens
in the back, then sneak away like a
If you possess a single spark of
honor about yon, you will fight me
over your real name, and when I get
through with you, I think jou will
net want to run in three opposite
party county conventions iu the same
year for county superintendent; nor
will you feel like taking the chances
of running on an opposite party ticket
to defeat your own party, simply be
cause the Republican party refused to
nominate you for the oHice.

MISS WILLAIID'S VIIT TO CHARLES
TON. For weeks we had been expecting
this distinguished aguest. and again
and again beeii disappointed. First,
the illness of Miss Gordon, the private
Secretary, and then a death in Mrs.
McLeod's family prevented ; but now
they were here, the entire party of
four, and we delightedly welcomed
them to heart and home.
A woman's speaking in public, ex
cept " on the stage," was a new depar
ture iu this old conservative city xif
ours. We are strangely rnconsisterit,
for the very persons who go in rap
tures over a woman's acting, singing,
or dancing, with head, neck, and arms
uncovered and exposed, under the
blazing gaslight, to tho public gaze,
will shudder at the indelicacy of a
modest and refined Christian lady
pleading as only a woman can plead,
for the protection of her home and her
dear ones. I knew that Mits Willard's
reputation would command for her in
the land of the Huguenot and Cava
lier, all the attention and respect that
could be paid, but I was hardly pre
pared for the immense audience, which
filled to overflowing Trinity, tho lar
gest church in the city, or the number
of distinguished ministers, who to do
honor to the gifted stranger, occupied
the Chancel. Every dcnominatio:i
was represented by its best, and Miss
Willard walked in with, and was in
troduced to tho audience by, an Epis
copal Bishop, a native oT tho city.
A minister, who came in rather late,
said: "I expected to find a cropped
haired, masculine-looking individual,
with hands in pocket, and voice keyed
up to high C, and could scarcely be
lieve my eyes, when I saw a graceful,
beautiful woman, simply, and yet tast
ily dressed, standing modestly in front
of the pulpit, and in soft, sweet tones,
pleading for those who could not pload
for themselves. I had not listened
two iuinute3 before I surrendered, and
I could now no more doubt her call to
the work she is engaged in. than I
could question my own call to the
The first utterances that fell frm
her lips enchained our attention and
made us conscious 'that a mind of the
very highest order was claiming our
attention. She was listened to, not
only with respect, but with reverence.
And from the Seaboard to the old
Palmetto State, there has yet to be
spoken or written,, the lirt word of
. Miss Willard is an especial creation,
and I believe her work in this State
has been blessed of God :o the good of
veiy many. She has won all hearts,
and takes with her wur best wishes.
Rev. Dr. Ved ler, of the Huguenot
Church, iu speaking of the symbol
istic V. C. T. U. interpreted them,
in Miss Willard's case, to mean, "We
come to unite," "we come to upturn."
S. F. Chapi.v, Charleston, S. C.
('rant aud Garllebl.
Washington, June 14. It was but
natural that Gen. Grant should take
the part of Mr. Conkling and be will
ing to let the public know where he
stands in the present controversy.
Gratitude for past services and per
sonal friendship, perhaps, furnish an
excuse for his recent utterances at
Chicago, unbecoming as some of them
are in a person who has twice been
President and whose resentment at
being set aside for a third term crops
out in the bitter words w ith which he
assails the Administration.
In singling out Mr. Blaine as the
author of these woes, General Grant
adopts the delusion of Mr. Conkling,
who assunyd, from his old quarrel
with the Secretary, that revenge in
spired the opportunity to strike a
lilow at the Senator bv which his
pride might be humbled and his power j
be crippled in the State. Mr. "Blaine j
has many mistakes' to answer for, but j
the appointment of Judge Robertson,
is not of the number. j
That ac, and all the responsibility '
of every kind belonging to it, attach
directly and exclusively to tho Presi
dent, as do tho preceding so-called
appointments No member of the
Cabinet was .consulted in either case
and there was as much surprise inside
as there was outside the Adminstra
tion when the nominations were
made known. The testimony on this
point is concurrent and conclusive.
After the decision had been made be
yond recall, without stultification, Mr.
Blaine had, of course, to take part in
the arrangements by which Gen. Mer
ritt was transferred to London, Bad
eau wan sent to Copenhagen, and Cra
mer succeeded Fish at Berne.
When the secret history of this mat
ter shall be revealed, it will be made
clear that if Mr. Blaine had had his
own way a very different policy would
have been adopted, I y no means ob
jectionable to Mr. Conkling, who was
recognized as the leader of the party
in New York and who, therefore,
would nut have been subordinated of
fensively. Like an infant attempting to walk
while only able to crawl, tho Presi
dent, flattered by incompetent inti
mates, undertook to play what he con
sidered a great part and to astonish
the country with a surprising stroke
of political craft. He would satisfy
bth factions in New York by a fair
distribution of the spoils. He would
thus harmonize the party and of
course illustrate the promises of tho
inaugural for civil service reform.
More than this, he would show him
self to be President, like another Jack
son, and be independent of Cabinet or
council. He was master and would
assei t his authority.
How well this programme succeeded
is known. In nii.ety days ho sjdit
the party into hostile camps, and now
the weak confidants, who stirred his
freakish ambition, and who inflated
hi. vanity to make this rash experi
ment, have made him believe that ho
has achieved a grand success, which
all republicans but a little faction ap
plaud, and which tho country irre
spective of party, appreciates. In the
midst of all the uproar, he is gratified
to think himself more popular than
ever before and cheerfully looks for
ward to a second ttrm. N. Y. Sun .

Hunting for game was practiced with
bow and arrow only until in the six
teenth century the Spaniards contrived
the arquebus or inateliloek. Here the
match was titled to a ".serpentine'' or
coctk, hung upon a pivot, and brought
into contact with the priming by a
work: rig substantially the same as that
of the modern hammer and' trigger.
Ti.U was further improved by the Ger
man invention of a jtcel wheel with
serrated edge, fitted to a spring, and
made to revolve rapidly, the edge coin
ing in contact with a pi. -co of pyrites,
and by this frietion producing tho
sparks to ignite the priming. The uso
of the wheel Jock for sporting purposes
was very general in the middlo of tho
sixteenth century, and for a long time
was not improved upon.
But uoccs-uty is the mother of inven
tion. A band of DuU-h chicken slealeiv.

bouts to the minions of the law, ab
stained from their evil practices long
enough to devise a weapon better
adapted to the needs of roost robbers.
The result w:us the Hint lock; and the
pot-huiiting fraternity scored a long
credit mark. . The t-portsmuu of our
grandfathers' generation owed the me
chanism of their guns to a band of
poultry thieves; there is yet hope for
the colored brother.
The Hint lock reached its perfection
in tho hands of "that king of gun
niakers," Joseph Mantou, iu tho early
part of the present century, and it
gave way only to a worthy superior

mark a most important epoMi in tho
manufacture and employment of fire
arms. The charge in the gun mils at

with, and the fulminate was .vruply
