This promising urchin, with these pre
cepts iudeiibJy stamped upon bis mem
cry, lade farewell to the quiet home ot
infancy. As yet he was too unsophisti
cated to adopt at ono fell-swoop, the last
injunction laid down to him. by his father,
but was inclined to put more trust in the
advice bestowed upon him by a solicitous
and affectionate mother,
After eucoumering the usual hardships
attending similar eases, he made his first
appearance upon tho provincial boards
as a country pedagogue, where he lout no
time in impressing upon tho tender minds
of his pupils, the $u)rlatii greatness of
the Robertsons particularly the one that
haj condescenJtd to prede over their in
structions. .' -i
Time passed on, but as yet he had not
immortalized himself, except in flogging
several five-year old petticoat juveniles.
At (be first flush of excitement, attending
his debut into pull it life, began to die away,
he wearied tf the tdk that was imposed
upon him, and was agaiu looking abroad
for a aew field, and more glory J In dis-

reached, hod ho not mistaken the tar of a
whisky shop for the one that he first set
out to be admitted to.
His next appearance was ns editor of a
small country journal, in Elyria. Here,
too, he might have won on honorable rep
utation, and proved himself a worthy citi
zen; but the temptation at the" corner
grocery," proved too much for him;
and the little moral principle that he had
inherited, was soon nearly obliterated.
If, conscience stricken, ( he attempted to
tell the triuh, he was thrown into violent
spasms; and his medical adviser positive
ly declared that he was hazarding his life
in attempt it. We believe he fully coin
cided with the doctor, ami has not been

Robertson, the older, was finally ap
pointed Indian Agent in this Territory,
and seeing that sonny was not likely to
distinguish himself, except in debauchery
and rascality, procured for him the ex
alted position of Indian Plow-Jogger, for
the Omahas. He arrived in Omaha in
tho autumn of 1S50. A wagon and a
span of fast horses were purchased in the
name of Uncle Sam. Ho remained at
Omaha instead of going to the Reserve,
and used the horses lor private purposes
more than six months, drow hit salary for
one year, then resigns, without duiug a
week's labor for the Indians.
Meantime he became editor of the Ne
braskian. Having given up the idea of
reaching the pinnacle of fame in un honor
able way, he sought to bring himself into
iKiiinw by filling the columns of the Ne
braskian with the vilest language that de
pravity cculd master, in defaming the
characters of those that refused to bow iu
submission to his will. He often declared
in private, (to U9e his own language,) " By
God, let them bring in their revolvers, if
they want to ;' will give them hell ;" at the
same timo flourishing Colt's, five-shooter,
that his father had furnished him. Sev
eral months luter, ho made a personal at
tack on Dr. Henry, of Omaha, through
the Nebraskian, and exclaimed as usual,
Let him bring iu his pistols," &.c. . The
Dr. did give him a call, and wished to
know if he wrote that article? (pointing
to the one that alluded to the Dr.) " V-e-s,
yts, Dr.; but I-I-I didn t mean you. I
didn't have you in mind at the tune it was
writ'en. hove you will not take offense !''
With this explanation the Dr. withdrew.
Then when dauger had wniiWihe afore
said five-shooter was again flourished, and
die old adage proved, that,
" He that fights and runs away,
Will live to fiijht another day.,
But the five-shooter was not used, except
in wreaking his brutal spite on his neigh
bor's hogs I
From time to time, this Robertson has
declared "in positive tertns, that no one
but himself, writes the editorials that ap
pear in the Nebraskian. , We have put in
type, in that office, article after article,
that was published as editorial, that was
written by nearly half a dozen different
residents of Omaha.
Has any one visited the editor of the
Nobraskian, in his office, aud gone away
with an c'xaltod opinion of him ? We
thiuk not. A string of blackguardism,
from devil to foreman, is coiiilantly heap
ed upsn his head, which too plainly shows
that he is nothing but a menial, a mere
tool, whose manhood and self respect has

It has become a settled matter of fact
that a Northern Pacific Railroad will be
built whether the extreme Southern route
presents greater facilities, is more abun
dant in timber, and the route shorter, is
hot the ; issue before the people the
North, with its capital and energy, will
never consent or aid in the construction
of a road so remote from themselves, and
whirh will serve to bind the great wealth'
and progressive energy of tho Pacific
coast in indissoluble bonds of afliuity with
the extreme South. We take a progres
sive and financial view of this important
matter, aside from politics. . Judging of
the extreme Southern route, as e do,
we aUo believe lhat the projects of the
ultraists of the North will meet with as
little success and favor; and Stevens' far
Northern route, exposed, as it is, to the
fitful elements, becomes every day more
chimerical, and soon must become an ex
pl xled idea.
Knowing as we do that an iron link
must bind us as a nation to the Pacific
coast, and bcini; aware of tho spirit of
improvement that exists in the North, the
facility with which energy and capital,
tunnels mountains, builds plains, traverses
prairies, and breaths the warm breath of
life into the " Iron Horse," we feel as
sured that this " consummation so dovout
ly to be wished tor," is not far distant.
A railroad route to bo popular must be
central ; nature must aid in its construc
tion. Such a greut natural thoroughfare
does the great Valley of the Platte pre
sent. From n point twenty-three miles
west uf Bellevue to the South Pass, a
distuueo of over eight hundred miles, it
is a continuous, level plain ; the Yulley,
along this great portion of the route, is
rich in agricultural resources, and has an
abundance of water.
To the river towns it will become a
matter of consideration and importance,
where, or nt what point upon the Missouri
river, the Railroad will leave. In a pro-'
ject of such magnitude, and being under
the immediate jurisdiction of the govern
ment, the influence of individuals, towns,
or communities, can be of but little avail ;
the Valley of th Platte muit be reached
by the fchorisl route presenting lh great
est facilities. If, then, nature designed
the Valley of the Platte for the great
thorpughfaro across the plains.it, upon the
same priueiple, designed the valley of the
Puppillion, in Sarpy County, as the nutur-
al outlet from the Missouri to the Platte.
Far-seeing men who Speculate not rapid
ly, but invest rcly, selected the plateau
at the mou'.h of the Pappihon as the
great natural terminus of the rag hu' II. II.,
nd Bellevue sprung into existence upon
that PlaJrau. without false clamor cr un
natural peculation. - .'
The great limestone btratta cropping
out here at the river's edge, secures the
river to us for " all time t J corr.e." By
the valley of "the Pappillion a railroad
can be laid to the Phttc Vallvy at Elk
horn without open cutting, and at no point
will the grade exceed ten feet to the mile.
The terminus, and the vicinity of the ter
minus, of such a road, must naturally be
come a great provision mart, and for this
Sarpy county is eminently, adapted ; it i
eminently a farming region, tich in its
resources, and more accessible by natural
thoroughfare than any other portion of
the Trrito:y. . The valleys of the Pup-
pillion, like a network of arteries, feiretcb

Speakers of Ilie House of Ilepre
During the existence of the Democrat
ic and Whig parties there were thirty
elections for Speakers of the House of
Representatives, resulting in the election
of twenlv-eiht Democrats and two
Whigs. Previous to this period there
were six elections, which resulted in the
choice of five Federalists and one nuli-
Federalist. The following list of Speak
ers, which is taken from the Albany Ar
gus of 18.53, may not be uninteresfng to
