We taw an article in the last Nebras
kian purporting to be a Inter written from
Bellerue, which was In fact written ly
Dr. Rankin, in. Omaha.- Our feuders
will remember that last fall, prior to elec
tion, the Nebraskian had a letter writer
ia Omaha, whe used to write his letter
weekly, dated Plattsmouih,Nbraka City,
Dakota and various other places. The
aaret game ia now Icing pursued. And
ia answer to this letter of Dr. Hank in,
of. Omaha, concerning the Sarpy County
Meeting, we hare only to say that it
whole tenor is, first and lust, to prove to
the people that live ia Omaha or out of
Sarpy .County, what a long and effective
speech was made by Dr. Raukm.to "vin
dicate the truth of history." If our read,
era will, remember, we published the
proceedings of that meeting and slated
that the Resolutions endorsing their Re
presentatives, passed the meeting with
bat eae dissenting voice, . Now we leave
the inference to the whole world as to the
effect produced by the Doctor's speech,
and the probability as to who voted against
the Resolutions, and how it occurred that
the meeting was unanimous save this cue
vete. . ,
Fioatct. We took a flying trip to
Florence last Saturday, and through the
ed active influence of lion. A. J. Smith
(Vho0 aomptuous, fare and Battle
Creek," wt shall never forget,) we were
detained there two days longer thrfn we
expected. If we were to bo banished
from Sarpy County, Bellcvue, and from
the presence of our friends, to go and
take up our abode among strangers, we
should aay, let our lot be cast among the
Florentines ; (or with a little cool, sound
philosophy, tempered with christian fur.
bearance we think we could endure the
fare and hospitable treatment of its liber
land ' generous residents. Not only
without a tnurmer, but with a deep sense
of apreciative satisfaction.
Florence is indeed situated npon a
beautiful, spot. Its long wide . Main
Street, with its stores, from one end of
the town to the other, show that the pro
prietor bad a proper idea of room and
apace, while the gentle slope, back of
Main5ty 'iib its many handsome, neat
and tasty, dwellings, aud in front on the
river, alio, there are many commodious
residences, presenting an appearance that
fires the beholder a pleasant idea of a
fast (rowing western town.
Ft. Caic. We visited this place
last Sabbuth, and was well pleased to seo
tne improvement made in the town since
our last risk, which was about one year
ago. We found our old friend Stephens
at his old place, still administering to the
comfort and happiness of the pioneer
Irateler with his large fires, warm din.
ners, and comfortable stables, and what is
more, his honest, generous reception of
hi gukU, puts one iu disposition to rw-.ke
his stay as long as possible. Fort Ca

think its future is a certainty.
