iag their undivided attention to the
grasshoppers. The Bcecher trial has
Ibet its interest, .Grant's removals or
appoiataeots are no longer inonopolix
isg their attention. AH these subjects
are Haling, while the future gras-hop-per
is growing taore fresh and inter
esting every day. This u t&ejfcesftoo
for immigration, we may expect con-.
" aeqaeatly the most gloomy accounts of
efie- grasshopper ravages in eastern
papcis, until the ecasou of immigra
tion is over.
The Toledo Blade enjoys the largest
circulation of any eastern paper in this
vicinity, perhaps, and it is particularly
discouraging in its account of the -condition
of things out west. It has al
ways advised its readers to stay at
borne, and hag claclcd and cackled
excessively over the truants who have
ought richer and wider fields. East
ern people seem to forget that their
states were once new and their settle
ment attended with moro troubles and
hardships than wc have encumbered
in Nebraska. We have bad no swamp
fevers like those which have retarded
and blighted the early settlement of
Illinois and Missouri ; no dense forcMs
to be cleared, as was the case in Ohio.
We have simply had a locust raid. lb
would have been blrangc if a young
elate bbould have no. disadvantages
and 04 set-backs. We ; cknowledge
our hardships. But what are tney ?
The small crops which we had been
able to plant last spring were destroy
ed. But their destruction would have
been but a sm .11 evil had it not been
far rhe genera! poverty which is always
incident to the settlement of a country
however rich and fertile Those of our
fartnens who have been here four or
five years were not discouraged and
would hesitate' long before exchanging
rarais here for' farms in Ohio or Illi
nois. They have tested the product
iveness of the soil, and are assured of
abundant harvests. The grasshoppers
were no moro to them than would
have been the chintz bug or potato
bug. Were the farmers of this county
on their feet,?and situated-as the far
mers of the-east, an occasional loss of
crops from grasshoppers or tho drouth
would be of no more consequence to
them than a like calamity in any other
state. We have talked with gentle
men from thejeastcro part of the State
who have been in the State a number
of yean, and they say that the locusts
are not a new thing. The northeast
ern counties have been aeitled'eigh teen
or twenty years. The grasshoppers
have ravaged them from time to time.
Yet the farmers are prosperous and
are rapidly accumulating wealth. We
have overestimated our disaster. If
we woold-iinagjae the cornstalk black
with locusts, .and not only the corn but
the wheat and other mull grain, it
would still be no greater evil than we
hare previous experienced' in the east
from the chinch bug. Jtjs not difficult
to recall the kerosene oil we poured
over our potato vine fo secure them
from the potato bug. It is ea.y to
recollect the time when it required all
that could be raised from 30 acres to
pay the taxes on one hundred and
sixty. Last year the 'drouth threaten
ed to diminish our yield of corn. Oth
er states- were siiulliarly afflicted.
There have been famines in Ireland,
and Persia; old as -it is, was only re
' centry in the greatest destitution, and
received aid from the west Hard
ships aad disasters are the lot of man
go where we wiiL Yet the face of
providence is not always hid behind a
frowning cloud. We are not justified
in expecting another faikre this year.
The crops are unusually promising
now. Wc have had an abundance of
rains. The grasshoppers have not
made their appearaaaa except ia the
older states. To ail-aocoaots and'pro
Hfceseea of eastern papers, we-jtatla
lit unqualified denial
ucra'thduglif they had feed enough
and to spare, but long before grass
cainc, a great njany of them were out
of feed, and there was general scarce ty
feed wa? not to bs bid at any price,
consequently many cattle and horxe
jiave died of starvation. What re
wains alive are in a peer aesditiea ia
deed. People ajixeed it sadly in mak
ing calculation .on chinch Tug corn.
loe grasshopper came too late last
fall to do a any damage but they de
posited their eggs anl they have hatch
ed. Now they are doing their best to
clean os our, and judgiog from present
appearances one would naturally think
that they will succeed. Already they
have taken oats, flax and timothy,
clean, and are taking the corn as fast
as it appears above ground. Most of
the people have planted and are now
watching proceedings with anything
bat pleasant countenances. Our prai
ries look as bare aa tbey did two weeks
ago. Of coareo there is some grass in
place, but scarcely enough to. sustain
life for our stock. 8ince la.t fall on
this ranche we have lost nine head of
cattle, fifty head of sheep and one hun
dred Iambs, and we did our best to
savo them. The people arc aaffering
very much, and unless they receive
help soon, starvation will stare them
in the face. Committees have been
appointed to solicit aid, and are now
busily at work. If tho grasshoppers
do not leave us soon, wc will be oblig
ed to seek quarters where we can live,
for we surely cannot here. Now do
not think Nebraska and Kansas are
the worst places in the world for pest-,
for if you excel in grasshoppers to a
certain extent, you cannot come up to
Missouri on chinch bugs. More anon

Ed. Chief : Billy Kennedy's
ram," is a queer kind of a genius.
What did he do yesterday, while
"Vinegar Hill" was diligently employ'
ed in boring a well ; but go down to
the Addition, drive his tube into the
earth about twenty feet and drew
water from there in a twinkle, merely
to agravate the poor fellows on the
hi!J,. who were spending time and
money in trying U squeeze blood out
of a turnip, or as much as to say,
"Here is where you can get your aqua
pura." Then complacently went off
about his business.
Next, we find Billy's Ram in the
post office, looking for his mail, or try
ing to dead-beat his peanuts, candy.
dry goods, groceries, pork, beans, or
upset a tank full of kerosene oil, until
Mr. McBride, the postmaster, with
tbe help of a half a dozen city police,
managed to lasso him around the
horns, with a coil of his new lariat
rope, and led him down to Mr,
Harsch's tin shop, for his coffee, from
the large coffee not over thedonr.
Here his ramship was let loesa again
for another frolic. The first thing
there that attracted his attention, was
a pair of Urge shears, and a roll of
sheet iron, and he made straight for
them, when Billy himself came apon
the eoone and by the means of a tin
bora just finished by Mr. Harsch,
soothed the savage beast ; but before
the animal would quite give up his
mischief, Mr. Harsch 'had to silver
mount his antlers with tin, and deck
hb wooly neck with a brass collar,
bearing this inscription, "I am Wm.

at any rate, he got, and then the guard
in the cage gave a general alarm, by
ringing tbe large bell in the yard, and
also the smaller ones in the Warden's
and Deputy's rooms. Some time since
we gave a description of these bells,
and as most of our readers are doubt
less familiar with the same, it is un
necessary tor a reptition.
The alarm brought out Mr. H. M.
Gould, Inspector, Cant. Wyman, the
Warden, and Mr. Nobca his Deputy.
The race that ensued between t he
three men was related to us rather
amusing. They arrived at the stone
house just in time to see the guard
take bis aim off Geary, and order ws
at once restored, upon the appearance
of the officers.

as if nothing hid happened, but in a
short time they were marched into the
main building, whero they received
the same treatment they havoaUas
been subject to, albeit two extra
guards were stationed to watch over
And thus ends a most notorious
man, who valued life of man no more
than that of an animal.
