The soil of Webster county is a dark, rich

assured that tho Chief will be con
ducted for the exclusive purpose of
advancing the interests of tho county,
and giving a faithful representation of
its progress. Wc have no axe to grind
politically ; wc intend to have no in
terest aside from the paper, which
will receive our undivided attention.
We arc willing to acknowledge a lack
of experience in tho management of a
newspaper, but trust to make up our
deficiency in this respect by industry
and devotion to our work ; and we ak
the earnest co-operation ofour readers
to make tho paper a faithful exponent
of the interests, of tho county. Com
munications are solicited from all parts
f the county, and Republican valley.
We trust there will be no occasion for
the complaints which have been made
in times past about this paper.
The Chief has not missed an isue
since-wo have been interested in the
paper, 6ave onco, and then it was no
fault ofour own. Wo were nnable to
obtain paper oa account of the ob
struction of the trains by tho storms.
The politics of the Chief will be
the same as heretofore, so far as it
deals with matters so uncertain and
We should be glad to have the far

about matters which it is the interest
of the farmers to know will- valuably
supply the place of political wrang

hardy "owld rooster," fond o' a dhmp
o' craythur." The Fourth of July
bciti' butdttrd in warm weather, ha
no occasion for a beverage, tbt will
btimubtc it crowing, although it
sometime? jumps across thefcoce, into
the doujinion of Bachus, and becomes
as great a worshipper of the merry
god, as even did l'atiick's Day.
Patrick's Day is an Irishman, the
Fourth of July is a man of all nations,
becaukc the representatives of all
nations gave berth to it. Patrick's
Day is the son of St. Patrick ; the
Fourth of Jury is the son of George
Wushmgttm. One was a saint of Iri.-b
manufacture, the other wai a saint of
universal manufacture. Tho Irish
saint was a Catholic, the American
saint wasju.it as Catholic, if Catholic
means universal, for no saint, could
be more universally beloved and
Chteemed, than the Father of his
Country, General (Jcorgc Washington.
So the question with me, is to find
out the duTercncc between those two
great saints. One was a spiritual mis
sionary, especially chosen and called
Jto make war against the darkness of
paganism, before the bright gleam of
who'sc gospel sword, fell the altars of
idolatary ; while the other was espe
cially chosen and called by the genius
of liberty, to emancipate a brave peo
pie from the thraldom of temporial
slavery. One by the power of his
spiritual sanctity, drove effectually and
forever, from the scene of his labors,
every manner of venomous reptile
across the Iri-h sea into England. The
other, iu like manner, by the power of
his untienching faith in the justico of
his cause, and by the aid of a people
who would be free, drovo reptiles
equally as venomous across the Atlan
tic, into England also, theic with
Toadyism, to wallow in alject serfdom.
One conquered (Tfe dragon, the other
conquered George (the 111,) and the
dragon, thereby throwing open the
gates of those "American Hespredos as
an asylum for tho free io spirit of all
The more wc trace up tho works of

Cud their doings in parallel lines.
There actions seem to run in the same
grove, in such beautious harmony,
that they appear like parts of the
same machine. The Irishman looks
on his national holiday as a day of
general rejoicing, a day of festive joy,
a day of fun and frolic ; and no matter
in what part of the world he may be
ou that day he will enjoy himself as
well us he can or kuowa ho j, although
his manner of doing it, (viewed from
i stand point foreign to his cutoni,)
may not always be up to the staudard
nevertheless he enjoys himself; and
how he.does it is no one's business but
bio owu, Th,. iiconle of America look
upon their fourth of July, as a day of
jubilee. Thi-y look upon it, as the day
when nature gave berth to a new
world, where the act, thought aud
mind could be free from the restraint
of any coronctted Gcslcr. Thus-they
look upon it, and thus they enjoy
themselves, each nationality accord
ing to the manner and customs of
their predecessors, though with only
one common, uuauimous sentiment
prcvading the entire mass, The sen
timent of heart-felt joy for the time
honored custom of the reading of the
Declaration of Independence.
So while we hold different views on
different subjects, maintain different
principles, profess different doctrines,
possess different sympathies, honor
different days from different circum
stances, and love our different places
of berth or extraction, let there be but
one prime principle amongst us in
common ; and that is to guard with
zealous care the honor aud integrity
of our common couutry, so that when
wc are called to another and a better
one, we may be able to hand it down
to those who will come after us as we
found it. And

A NEW STATE 2OT3E.
There has been some murmuring
about the increased apportionment in
eur legislature, and how difficult it will
be. to handle 1 14 members, yet, it is
an ill wind indeed that Hows no one

provement. Nebraska City Prat.
We deem the intimation above from
tho Nebraska City Press a friend of
the new constitution very unfortunate,
it the idea becomes prevalent among
the people that the increaaed appor
tionment means the immediate -largement
of the present "rattle trap
of a state house" or the erection of n
new one at Lincoln at a heavy expense
to the people the new constitution is
doomed to defeat.
A suspicion that this might be the
resnlt of the adoption of the new con-

has already prejudiced many against

Nuckolh county with between 1100
and 1,200 inhabitants, a fall member
of the lower house appears to be likely
to become the war cry of the oppo

terrible grievance is perhaps inexcua
ble, and if it is to be the issue on
which the battle is to be fought, per
hapswc will bo pardoned if we explain
how it come to exist. Nuckolls county

on the north. All the counties border

sufficient population to entitle them to
a representative, but no surplus.
They were given therefore independ

to-bo done with Nuckolls It ryascug
gpsted to set her off into Kansas, to
district her with Madison county, 500
miles away, or to leave her out in the
cold entirely, but for manifold reasons
this was not done. She had to have
a representative by herself or go with
