The Two Flnneys.
Be it known to tho people of the Ter
ritory of Nebraska and the rest of man
kind, that there ore two Finney's in the
Legislature of Nebraska. Tho riorence
Courier, of lust week, devoted a chapter
to one of them, W. A. Finney, of Ne
maha ; for particulars, in detail, see ex
tract in this No. of our paper. Tho other,
JonN Fin net, of Uellevue, needs no cn
conium, no eulogy, to sustain his politienl
reputation. We know that John Finney
has no glittering, orange-colored -metal,
the price of honor, of integrity and repu
tation burning in his pockets. Now, as
we write, John Finney has never falsi
fied his word, has never violated his
honor. John Finnky stands before the
world in the enviable position of an hon
orable man. Let no mistake be made in
this matter. The Southern Election Dis
trict of Douglas may well be proud of her
Representative, for in John Finney they
have found an able, earnest, faithful, and
above all, an HONEST Representative.

En. Uellevue Gazette Dear Sir:
I noticed in your last paper an article
personnl in its character in relation to tho
Bellevuo Post Office, with several other
articles of like nature. I wish to say
there is a wide difference in tho liberty of
a press and an unlimited abuse of it. It
was never designed by the proprietors of
the Belleviifi Gazette that it should be
used as an organ to herald to the world
tho petit jealousies and bar-room quar
rels of neighbors, especially those of our
immediate onus. Hoping that the columns
of said paper will be filled with matter of
more importance to our young city and
fast-growing Territory hereafter, I am
very rpspectfully yours,
S. A. STRICKLAND & CO.
The new editor of the "Nebras

Pennsylvania Farmers, who have made
Nebraska their homes, to the Prospectus

is one of the best Family papers publish
ed in Pennsylvania, and is just the paper
to lot you know what is going on among
the farmers about your old homesteads. (
