He- h.h Why tlic Platte linn
Editou Journal, Bear Sir: I
have thought a few results of mj
summer's trip to your vicinity might
not bo without interest to your read
ers. La6t Aujjust I made a hasty
geological rcconuoisance of the
Platte from its mouth to Kearney.
"Without dwelling on the very in
teresting features of the prescut
stream, I wish simply to give a few
glimpses, which have come to me,
of its foimcr mojcPtic size and come
of its curious changes.
It formerly, and at no verj'distaut
age, ran diagonally across Saunders
county, leaving its present valley a
little east of North Bend. It swept
in a channel from o to 8 miles wide
in nearly a straight line to its pres
ent bed again near Ashland. Sand
and "Wahoo creeks mark the western
bank of that ancient channel. This
statement is attested by the exist
ence of an alluvial plain bearing
every mark on, and below its sur
face, of having been the valley of a
large river. This plain is about 100
feet lower than the hills west of it,
and cast of it, between it and the
present Platlo valley, similar hilly
land is found., forming what has
been called " The Ancient Island."
The high bluffs oppo to Fremont
form the northern cud of this "is
land." This old chauncl, where it
leaves the river, is 70 to 100 feet
higher than the water iu the river,
and from that altitutc it elope? quite
rapidly, so that near Ashland it is
not more than about 50 tect higher
than the Platte.
"We find evidence in these facts
that the Platte formerly flowed at a
much higher level and was a much
larger stream than it is now. Vc
find many more facts indicating the
eame thing. Near Columbuf, the
"First Table," as it is called, the
highland between the Platte and
Shell creek, is another old bottom
of the Platte, bo, too, the land be
tween the Maple aud the Platte, and
between the Loup and the Platte.
The north edge of the ancient bed
of the Platte is clearly marked by
the lower courcs of the Loup. Shell
aud Maple, which run nearly paral
lel with the Platte. The hills north
of the same arc about 100 feet higher
than this ancient bottom, which is
itself 75 to SO feet higher than the
present bottom of the Platte.
All the streams mentioned, for- i
xnerly entered the Piatte at the-
point where they now make their
"liu IU lliU I..IM. CYUII VUHf litlUJV,
t. e., since the streams had worn to
nearly their present level, there
Tvere streams flowing from the Loup
into Shell creek near Gleasoifs, and
probably from Shell creek into the
3Iaple below Schuyler, just as now
channels from the Platte connect
with Wood river.
The 6and hills south of Kearney
arc apparently upon an old sand-bar
formed by the Platte when flowing
at its higher level. Dry creek, as it
is called, bounding the sand hills on
the south, marks the ancient south
bank of the river.
At a time, therefore, probably not
over 5,008 years ago, the Platte was
a mighty river, about four or five
times its present size, a slow, ma
jectic stream, flow ing iu a bed 75 to
100 feet higher than its present bed,
aud yet not really higher but lower,
as wo shall sec further on.
Another interesting point: the
"Ancient Island" appears to have
been the lower part of a" divide,
which formerly separated the E'J:
born from the Platte and Maple.
The higher land may be traced north
of Fremont west of the Elkhorn.
"Vo may suppose, therefore, that the
Platte has cut through this "divide,"
also that the Maple has done the
Bnmc. As before stated, -the latter
once flowed into the Platte, liow
have these changes heen produced?
A few words in answer. The wear
ing of a deeper channel by a stream
iB usually a sign and result of in
creased velocity, and that often
comes from an increased steepness
of its slope.
Now, then, an indication from
other sources, that there has heen
au elevation of the western plains
in comparatively modern times.
The elevation may be still going on.
Kearney is nearly 1000 feet higher
than it wa during the. last geolog
ical period. Thi elevation would
4 rt 4l,n n... ft. IT,-t. ..?.. I .. . t ...
naturally quicken the velocity of
the Platte, throwing it agniun the
divide near Fremont, and causing a
sharp bend which finally wore thro'
into the valley of the Elkhorn. If
that valley was lower, as it probably
was, the velocity of the Platte would J
be still further increased.
Moreover, the elevation probably
had an effect to diminish the rainfall
on the plain. We see in this eleva
tion, therefore; the priueipal eaure
of both the diminished eizc of the
Platte, and its wearing its way into
it uarrower channel.
If any one of your readers kuows
or learns of any tacts which seem
to forbid these conclusions iu any
particular, I shall be glad to know
them. Your? respectfully,
J. E. Todd.

For the Journal.
Ckrlfftlaaity in its Relation to
We must recollect that the king
dom of Christ, nris special sense,
reslB upon the general principles of
justice and good government, which
commend thcmsclvcso the common
sense of mankind, independently of
their religious development. "A
sceptre of righteousness is the scep
tre of thy &ugdom." "Truth," says
a father of the Church, " by whom
soever uttered," and we may equally
say, right -doing, by whomsoever
followed, " is of the Iloly Ghost'
Every effort, therefore, to improve
and purify the course of civil ad
ministration; to mitigate the vio
lence of party; to elevate the stand
ard of character required in candi
dates for high office; to improve
legislation; all such endeavors,
whatever the religious position of
those who are devoted to them, arc
directly in the line of the advance
ment of.Christ's kingdom; for they
broaden and strengthen those gen
eral foundations of justice and right
reason, on which that kingdom rests.
Aud it is worthy of note, that, at
present, it is only within the limits
of Christendom, or under its over
mastering influence, that cflbrl3 for
civil reform are seriously made, or
have any reasonable prospect of
success. Russia, for instance, is one
of the corruplest of Christian states,
yet her administration appears al
most purity, compared with that of
China. China i", perhaps, the best
administered of heathen states; yet
it is computed that three-quarters of
all her revenues cling to the fingers
of jthosc who gather them. Now,
r,lwo to say that the efforts making
i'o perfect aud purify the channels
of administrhtion, and to raise the
tone of public life, arc not among
the woi kings of God, through men,
to redeem the world of his creation ?
Such efforts, indeed, react to enno
ble every individual character with
in a commonwealth. Jtectitudc of
principle aud conduct, public or
piivate, is not alien to the grace of
God, but is its appropriate vehicle
Wc arc, therefore, no sufficient
instruments of God's redeeming
work, if we slop with a concern for
individual and social religion and
morality, while we sutler the great
fabric of our civil polity to be de
bauched : sutler cunning and low
minded politicians to build their
foul ncstsof private gain upon the
majestic pillars which uphold the
order of our natioual life, and to
turn to their own advantage even
that sacred fianchise, by which free
men suppose themselves to be ?er;
iug the good of their country, when
J yet they so often arc ouly helping to
fatten the vultures that prey upon it.
lie. therefore, who, before the
altar, vows his allegiance to Christ,
vows his alleglauce to him a) much
ia this respect as in any other. Nor
can he any more be excused for
allowing the shackles of slavish and
unremonslratiug partisanship, than
for allowing the shackles ut drunk
enness or debauchery to clog his
limbs, and hamper his activity in
dealing blows at evil wherever he
may sec it. The servant of Christ is
to be equally the sworn foe of Satan
wherever he may discover him, in
his heart, in his life, iu his neighbor
hood, in the church, in the capitol,
in the custom-house, in the polling
booth, in his native land, or, so far
as his indirector influence may
reach, in Loudon, or Vienna, or St.
Petersburg!!, and from the equator,
to the pole. Public morality is
helped by private rectitude, and
strengthens it iu turn. Both are
powerfully assisted by religious
faith, and teact most strengthingly
and helpfully on it. And the more
perfectly the iclations and inlerde
pendencies of earth are regenerated
according to the mind of God, the
more perfectly will earth become the
tmr-prv nf hitmrnn. n n c
lExooaiitl or a JtntI EEablt.
It used to be said iu the early
times in Denver, when the free-and-easy
life of pioneer days was tho't a
necessity, that todies sometimes mas
queraded in male attire especially
at night just to sec what it was that
detained their husbands down town
so late. One iu particular had a
very attractive husband, and, wo-man-lik".
she was very fond of him.
It seemed to her that so precious a
possession should be guarded zeal
ously, and she did her best to keep
him iu view. But his incomiugs and
outgoings were frequent. Like the
Irishman's flea, he Was anywhere
but at the place at which he was ex
pected to bo found. Nevertheless
she buckled bravely down to her
mission, aud few were his escapades
that failed to come under her per
sonal observation. One uijjht she
traced him to a dance-hall, and just
as he was about leading. one of the
reigning belles of the place to forma
set in a cotillion n handsomely
dressed boy interposed between
"I beg your paidon, fir, but 1 have
a weakness for this girl myeclf,"' re
markedthe youth, '-and with your
leave 111 have a dance with her."
Before Iho astonished gentleman
could gather his scatteied senses
about him the youth and girl were
whirling away in the nnzes of the
dance. It was the look and tone ol
the intruder which had dumbfound
ed him. He bad seen that face
somewhere, and the voice was as fa
miliar to him as spring violets. f
"He looks to be every inch a boy,
and yet I'll swear it's a woman," he
In. a few moments the dance was
over, aud the boy came close to him.
"Areu't you tired?" he inquired.
"Well, yes," replied the citizen, -a
"Well, let's go home," suggested
"Go home 1" interposed the citi
zen in tones long drawn out, while a
faint inkling of the youth's identity
began to dawn upon him. Then he
stopped and peered wistfully into
the fase wreathed with srailcB.
"Will you go home?" the boy
It was hardly necessary to have
made the inquire. It was evident
that the citizen had begun to com
prebend the situation. But he heav
ed a sigh as he replied, cordially :
"I think I will."
It wa3 his last night out. The
places that knew him once kuew
him no more. Pleasure taken under
such cspoinagc had ceased to be
pleasing. The gentleman now is one
of the pillars of society. Denver
The I.cson or Ohio.
If the Democratic party were cap
able of being taught a lesson, the
Ohio election would teach them one.
It would, too, be one that would
sink deep in their hearts. During
tho late sessions of Congress their
brigadiers were busy preparing for
Tuesday's result in tho great central
State of the Union. They have ac
complished what they set out to do.
It is to be hoped they are satisfied.
Previous to those sessions the
Republican parly was distracted
an I divided. From Maine to Cali
fornia it is now united. Tho gener
al expression among Democrats in
public places yesterday was that the
shot-gun policy of Mississippi de
feated the party in Ohio. And of
this there can be no doubt. It was
folly for the Democratic brigadiers
to insist on State rights in theory,
but the height of insanity for them
to enforce it, as they did during the
rebellion, at the mouth of the mus
ket. Can it be po-sible, as the stalwarts
assert, that they intend to rule
a country they were unable to ruin ?
The Ohio election is the last les
son and the last warning. Will the
Democracy heed it? Or, has Prov
idence given them over to blindness i
of eye aud hardne? of heart? Is
the proverb of the ancients to be
sigually exemplified in their history,
alo; "Whom the gods would des
troy, they first make mad ?"
As to the Republicans, the only
questions now is that of leadership.
The result iu Ohio brings forward
Sherman and Blaine as probable can
didates on the part of those who
hope at the last moment to stem the
Grant "boom." Can either, or both
combined, do it? That is now the
question of tho hour. Republicans,
like old Thurlow Weed, to whom
the prophetic political spirit is giv
en, think they can. We shall see.
In the meantime Grant, like a sec
ond "William, the Silent," or an
impurtnrbablo Monk, with a pierc
ing eye, sweeps the political field on
which the great battle is soon to be
waged, but speaks not. He holds
the destiny of a world's continent
imprisoned behind those firm set
lips. The materialistic philosophy of
the day may assert that events con
trol men, not men events. This
would be true if there were no
Grant to take hold of Democratic
(Hotspurs, who, while killing nc
jgrops with iliol-gnns at the South,
with the same weapons, and at
same time, slaughtering the
Democratic party at the North.

Core Tor Colic in Horses.
A correspondent of the Massa
chusetts Ploughman gives the fol
lowing cure for colic in horses,
which is convenient at all times and
easily applied. He says he has nev
er known it to fail: Spread a tea
cupful or more of fine salt on the
back of the animal over tho kidneys
and loins and keep it saturated with
warm water for 20 or 30 minutes or
longer if necessary. If the attack
is severe drench with salt water. I
have a valuable bull, weighing one
oiu) thousand pounds which had
aPrrre attack of colic a year ago
last summer. I applied salt to his
back as above, and, it being diffi
cult to drench, we put a wooden bit
into his mouth, keeping it open
about two inches, and spread Bait
upon his tongue, which, together
with the salt upon his back, relieved
him at once, and within a very short
time equilibrium appeared fully res
tored. I have for severalyears past
successfully applied this treatment
to other animals in mv herd.
