Webster County Condtnul
Webster Co.. Nb.. lies in the Valley ot
the Rp-iblioan. itl50ni?e west of the Mi
touri River and touches the Stiite tine on
t!ie South. Wj .ers are mild and dry: very
little rain or mow full in that season to lit
tle in fact that ettle live aM winter with no
buy or grain. Plenty of rain fulls in the
spring xn summer. The summers are not
dir agreeably warm-, a here is always a cool
brees especially in the evenings. The
county first betas to se tie in 1870. I- 1871
the county wait organized with a ropnlation
of4S. Its population is nov between 2500
and 3000 and is rapidly increasing. There
are at present 38 organised school distiict
within its boundrics and school facilities are
tb-refora ainple -better than those in some
fdmtflrn States. The apportionable school
fund furnishes nearly enough money to pay
leachets' wages. Farmers can buy R. R
land from SI. 50 to SS per aerc with ten years
time. There is yet a considerable amount of
government lands for hotneteadt and pre
emptions. Asa stock mining country it is
hard 'o excel. Cattle do well, and fur sheep
It cannot be beaten. It is just suited to that.
Fortunes cau be easily made by raising heep
as the expenseof feeding is very small. Tbnt
torn, oats, barley, potatoes, buck wheat, and
till kinds of roots-rii vegetables, are grown
here with little labor. 35 bushels of sod corn
to thj acre is nothing new. Wheat averages
about 25 bushels to tun acre. Fruit does ex
tremely well. Every farmer has his orchard
growing. Forest trees crow rrpidly. Cotton
wood, boxalder. whiiewood. soft maple, and
many other kinds of trees grow iuto timber
large enough for fuel in about Jthree years.
OsHg orange plants do iecly. and in afew
years your live fences can be made. Me
chanics find euploymentand fair wages. The
very bet and purest water is obtained by
going from 5 to 100 feet. The cost is ver

Babcock is Sually on trial for com
plicity in the whiskey ring. Next to
the Beecher scandal the case will be
the most interesting one that has been
before the courts for some time. It is
one of considerable political signifi
cance. The admiuitration will be
mor or lasa stained by the result of
the trial- if Babcock is convicted, and
an aoowtal will not perfectly clear the

lias been watching Iris conduct with
anything but favor. The matter
rr ached at xnterestfng stage when
Bristow removed oner of Conkiiug
friends and supplanted him waft a
democrat. Conkling called on- Bristow
for an exp!anat:on, which Bristow
haughtily declined. Some sharp words
were indulged in on both side?. Con
kling then went to the President, who
revoked Bristow's action and reap
pointed the old officer. Is Bristow
working for BrLtow or is Grant work

little reflection to see into ;he cause ol
dull times. It is estimated that the
population of our United Stare
Hmt.uiits to about forty millions of dol
lars, or an average of ton dollars per
capita. On the strength of this then,
"ill kf for example take, one

, , , I
others without a cent; and when one
man has a $1000, there must oe ten
thousand in the condition of pauuere,
&c , up to millions. So that if tho.-e
who control a million of dollars of the
circulating medium of the nation, kept
it in his safe, without letting it Ioo.se
amongst the people, (as many does)
ten millions cfour people, uiu.t inevit
ably starve for want of any mark or
token to denore the value of tl- ir
property or. labor. And this h the
condition we are placed iu at pre.-ent,
as the result of contracting the curren
cy of the country, in order to return
to specie payment, fntn which then
are poor prospecf-y)f better times until
political dead heads are made to feel
that the people aro supreme ruler of
the land. One hundred years ago;
thirteen futile colonies were bravely
to emancipating themselves from-the
tyrant rule of a pertiduous government,
aud yet, I doubt, if we are not as much
under the rule of the same government
co-day, as we were the?. Fur there i
scarcely an institution or a branch oi
industry in the cuuutry ax present thai
Knglaud does not control- with-its-nip-iuI.
Our ratlrcad, our cotton mills,
our iron factories, our coal and iron
mines, our gold-and-' silver mines, our
canals and water courses, alK or nearly
all. aer become the property of English
men, who bate our tihg and detest :he
name of Waohingtou. This is not all,
England controls probably two-thirds
of our national debt, and will take par
in no other way but in gold. Her
emissaries- (paid-by what is yearly vot
ed by the- Britifk parlatnent, under
the name of secret-service money,) are
scattered through every town iu the
United States, of any distioctioa, for
the purpose of moulding public opin
