ceived by flattering promises and
disappointed by broken pledges that
nothing short of a visible realization
of these hopo3 can fully satisfy her
people. Nothing short of the actual

vince the doubters that all is safe.
It is, nevertheless, gratifying to
know that the present managers of
the road announce their determina

by their predecessors.
MB. A. C. Hesing, like Patrick
O'Flahorty, seems to be born to bad
luck. For several months Sir. He
sing has been industriously at work
to organize a political part' that
would coincide with his peculiar
views, but so far he has met
with very poor encouragement,
Even the political hayseed
bummers who held a Convention
at Springfield "Wednesday under the
now popular disguise of "farm
ers" did not see fit to incorporate
While Hesingadvocated immediate
rpecie payments they advocated the
conversion of national Kink notes
Into greenbacks and greenbacks in
to bonds. While Hesing wanted to
stigmatize and denounce the cru
sadew they were inclined to form
an alliance with what Hesing styles
the temperance fanatics.
They even went so far as to hiss
Hessing's anti-crusader speech.
This was the unkindest cut of all,
and the great would-be leader
slunk away "even more disgusted
with the Farmers' Reform jwirty
than he professed to be with the
party he had recently deserted.
THE Chicago Tribune which at
first endorsed President Grant's
memorandum to Senator Jones, is
now beginning to pick flaws in the
document The Tribune especially
considers the President's propo
sition to abolish all small notes
of a denomination below $10
as unnecessary and unscientific
According to tho Tribune "the
chief purpose had in view by the
President in the abolition of small
Botes is to accumulate a stock of
gold in the country as a ballast to
prevent future panics or to miti
gate tkefar effects. Would the aboli
tion of small notes accomplish this
ad? At first blush it would seem
ao, but the teachings of his
tory not less than those of eco
nomic aeteace, show the contrary.
Commercial crises, or panics, occur,
In England, where there is no
per currency of less deuomina
tkm that 5 (the equivalent of $25),
with as great frequency and sever
ity as in this country, where we
kave nothing but paper currency.
They occur m countries where there
are bo bank-notes whatsoever. The

greater part of the civilized world,

all Botes have nothing to do
a the production of panics, and

Among the Congressional pro
ceedings of Tuesday we notice a re
port by Senator Hitchcock from the
Committee on Territories, in favor
of the admission of New Mexico.

Returns from the census of Ne
braska, just taken by the State au
thorities, have been received from
all the counties except seven, and
foot up 222,392. The counties yet
to hear from are expected to bring
the grand total up to 225,000. Doug
lass county, in which Omaha is sit
uated, has 22,570. Allowing Omaha
one half of the population of the
county a very liberal allowance
and we find that town contains in
the neighborhood of 11,000 inhabi
tants. By the census of 1870, the
town had some 14,000 so that you
can see it hasn't increased much in
four years. "On the contrary, quite
the reverse." Council Bluff Non
pareil. That is as near the truth as any
of our liberal Spoon Lake contem
poraries have ever been known to
venture. In 1870 Douglas county
returned a fraction over 20,000, of
which Omaha supplied 16,384. Al
lowing the county outside of Omaha
her proportion of the increase, and
we still find at least 18,000 inhabi
tants in Omaha now.
The would be Indiana reformers

Mr. Jerome Jones, who is connec
ted with the glass industry of New
England, recently stated, after his
return from Europe, that the glass
works there were nearly idle, and
the proprietors admit that American
makers have attained a degree of
cxcellc.icc that has practically cut
them oil from this market. The
glass works of New England, he ob
served, produces articles which in
quality, design, and engraving, are
equal to any made abroad. The
New England Glass Company, Mr.
Jones said incidentally, paid an av
erage dividend of 15 per cent, du
ring the past 40 years, but had
earned no dividend in the last two
years. The contemplated winding
up of the Company has, however,
been postponed for further consider
ation. The state of the iron trade is dis
cussed in the Commercial Bulletin
of Bsston, which speaks hopefully
of the future. It sa3-s: "The re
markable progress of this industry
for the two years immediately pre
ceding the panic, and the enormous
demand for American iron, give
reason to hope for a partial revival
of this brach of business at no dis
tant day, and a renewal of profitable
operations. This growth has prob
ably no parallel In the history
of any industry in the country. The
call for American iron was so great
that large profits were realized, and
this in turn stimulated production.
New furnaces and mills were erect
ed in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and here
and there in other States, until the
production was In excess of the
wants of the country. Irrespective
of tho panic it would have been al
most impossible to maintain prices,
with so great an increase in produc
tion. The panic added to the weight
to be carried, and the result is what
we have seen.
Prom Blair to Flattsmonth.
Omaha, June 11, 1874.
After leaving Blair we traveled
north along the Missouri Valley
bottom, which here extends full
twenty miles from bluff to bluff.
There are many fine farms along
this Valley, and in the vicinity of
Urizona beautiful groves of timber
give variety to the otherwise monot
onous dead level of the landscape.
Tekamah is the commercial cen
tre of this portion of tho State, and
is decidedly the most thriving town
we have seen in our travels. Here
we found Mr. George Zanner, for
merly of Omaha, occupying an ele
gant jewelry store' his show cases
ana snejves wen siockl-u wm
watches, clocks and bijoutiere of the
most beautiful kinds. Mr. Zanner
is a universal favorite, for he is one
of those genial, manly gentlemen
with whom it is a pleasure to trans
act business, and in Mr. Zanner Te
kamah has gained a finished work
man whom Omaha could illy afford
to lose. At the next door we stopped
to seo Mr. Hoile, formerly with J.
J. Brown & Co., Omaha, who is
now in partnership with Mr. Nelson,
doing a thriving business in a large
well-filled general store in which
is kept everything imaginable from
a skein of silk thread to a cable
rope. Mr. Hoile was so busy wait
ing on a large crowd of customers
that we had no chanee for a visit
there, but in the evening we
smoked a fragrant weed and talked
of the olden times in Omaha. The
next morning we reluctantly bid
good-bye to our friends and started
for Freniontaqross the high prairies.
Tho road is pot confined to section
lines, but follows the high ridges,
which gives a magnificent view of
the rich cultivated valleys below.
Along Bell Creek and down the
Elkhorn Valley we passed through
a garden like courjtry which is cer
tainly unsurpassed anywhere for
fertility of soil and variety of pro
ducts. At Nickerson Station, on
the Elkhorn Valley Railroad, wo
noticed ft finp large elevator with
about a dozen teams waiting to dis
charge their loads.
We thought it very strange that
Omaha with her vast wholesale
trade, could not compete wjth even
Ilckerson Station (which has not a
single store) in facilities for hand
ling grain. At Fremont everything
indicated prosperity. Real Estate,
being especially lively, so much so1
that it "flew through the air with
the greatest of ease." Fremont is
undoubtedly the dustiest town in
Nebraska on a windy day.
At the hotel we met Judge Lake,
District Attorney Connel and sever
al members of the Omaha bar who
had just arrived from Wahoo,wh.ere
tfyey hat boon folding a session of
the District Court. ' At this point
wo crossed the Platte on tho new
bridge which is certainly an archi
tectural curiosity. It Is wide in
some places and In others a team
can scarcely get through. It makes
as many crooks and turns as a poli
tician on election day and almost
touches the stream over whjcli t is
ljuilt, Thftt pridgo must be seen to
About four miles from Fremont
on the south side of the Platte, the
Grangers have erected a commodi
ous hall which will be completed
this summer. We talked with the
people in this vicinity in regard to
the bridge question and nearly every
farmer said that he would market
his grain and stock in Omaha, if
there were a bridge at Valley or
Waterloo, but that now thoy had to
bo contont with wading through
the Fremont sand hills and receiv
ing the terms given by a market
which had no competition.
Wahoo, the new county seat, is
nearly In the centre of Saunders
county, and has more buildings in
course of erection than completed
buildings. From here we traveled
down the rich and beautiful valley
of Wahoo creek to Ashland, which
town feels keenly the loss of the
county seat, still trade was in a
The cruel war is over here, that is
the whisky war. The crusaders
were triumphant, and there is not
at present a saloon in Ashland.
We picked up at this point a
parody on "Excelsior," which a
certain genius had composed in
order to describe the struggles, per
sistent perseverance, and final sad
fate of an agent of the Excelsior
School Furniture Company, who
had passed through that iortion of
the country- We 've lt nere as a
specimen brick pf Nebraska poetry,
which we propose to enter at the
State Fair this fall, although It may
have the genius of a Hitchcock to
contend with for a premium :
The shades of night were falling fat, ,
As through a western Tilltge passed,
- youth who sang, with noise and din,
A word of singular meanin
His nose was red, h!' moustache curled,
As if the Tery ground he spumed ;
And like a bovine clarion rung
The accent of tliat unknown tongue
In aloons he saw the glowing light
of ISourbon whisky vjiarkling bright ;
llut on lbe prairif s he must rotni,
While from his lips escaped a groan
"Oh, s'ay," an ex-crusader slid,
The road Is rough and I wsnt' to wed."
A tear stiiod in his bright bl ue ere.
But stfll he answered, with a sigh,
"Try not the road," an old man sa!d,
"A tnunuer storm urews oTerneau,
And Wahoo Creek is dark and wide.'1
liut loud that clarion voice replied
"Beware the boys of BUls's Ranch ;
Beware the loaiing Muddy branch."
Tills was the Graugsr's bst good night.
A voice replied, far oat of sight,
A traveler hr the hUhlu honnd,
Hilt hurried in the mud was found,
H.ll trying a schojl board to entice.
To buy a desk with the strange device,
There In the mud the agent lay,
Till he wank bcnelh his kindred elay;
But from under the ground a sound Is heard.
Very strangely like the word,
On our road to Plattsmouth, we
found there was not a single ferry
in operation across the Platte, below
to remedy this, for by it, Omaha is
excluded from proper communica
tion with Cass county.
On arriving atvPIattsmouth, we
were surprised at the air of quiet re
pose which broods over this city.
No new buildings are being erected,
and the old ones look dilapidated.
But so it is all over the State; some
towns-grow up in a night like
Jonah's gourd, and die -almost as
soon; but the country only changes
for the better. There Is no retrogad
ingonthe farms, and nearly one
fourth of the plowed land you see, is
fresh broke prairie, and beautiful
groves and fine orchards are being
planted all over the country. The
crops of small grain have suffered
some from the drouth, and many
fields were turning yellow when the
rain set in, just in time to save
them. Barley, rye and fall wheat,
has headed out and looks well.
The corn crop is magnificent
in promise, and orchards are every
where loaded with thick clusters of
the embryo fruit. The present rains
have given a fresh impetus to all
kinds of vegetation, anu Nebraska
fanners are jubilant over the pros
pects of a rich return for then
labor. ,, ,.
Between Blair and Plattsmouth
we counted no less than thirteen
school houses and four churches in
course of erection, which tends to
show that Nebraska is getting the
right kind of emigrants.
Whcr.Uems accumulate, I will
again use my crow-quill, but for the
present I will wait for the end of
this dreary, monotonous rain.

March, 1872, of congestion of tho
lungs, was" 'recently disinterred for

weight was 145 pounds.
The hydrophane, or so-called
Mexican opal, take3 its name from
the peculiar property of becom
ing transparent after immer
sion in water, and in that state it
often displays prismatic colors of a
beauty equal to those of the noble
opal itself. Although, very similar
to the latter as fttr its substance goes,
it Js of a porous texture, and very
absorbent. On becoming dry again
its transparency vunlshes, leaving a
white or yellowish surface. It is
said that when boiled in oil the
hydrophane acquires the same ap
pearance as when immersed in
water, and retains it in pa.rt for
years, as the oil does not dry.
This morning Carl Beneditti, the
celebrated sword-swallower, appear
ed at the clinic of the Jefferson Me
dical College, and was the subject
of a lecture by Professor Maury. A
number of the most eminent sur
geons were present. Beneditti first
swallowed a sword-blade twenty
three Inches in length, and bending
over, completely bent the steel, Ho
next placed a saber measuring twenty-nine
inches in, length down his
throat to tho hilt. The sword was
kept in this position abouta minute,
and (several of the medical men
present made an examination. In
their opinion the point of the sword
passed through the gullet down into
the icsopuagus, or channel leading
to the stomach, thence apparently
separating the left parts of the stom
ach and passing to a point three
inches below the umbilicus. Next,
Beneditti took a musket weighing
alout sixteen pounds, with a bayo
net attached. The bayonet he swal
lowed, and, bonding over, supported
the musket In several positions by
the strength of his jaws. Another
wonderful feat was to swallow six
sword blades at one time and extri
cate them separately.
There appeared to be no malform
ation whatever about tho sword
swallower, and It is'said that he first
dicovered Ids ability to perform
these feats by thrusting his finger
down his throat once while sick and
finding that It would not make him
A Bee Fancier.
On Sunday a large swarm of bees
icltlcd on a lamp post on Mulberry
tiect. A colored man living near
the spot placed some molasses in a
tin pan, and tried to coax the in-t-ects
to partake of the sweet diet ;
but the bees stuckto their post The
negro then requested an Irish neigh
bor to bring an old Christmas tree,
as atfording a better swarming place
tor the honey-makers.- The pine
bough was brought, tho branches
dipped in molasses, and the two
men held it up near the post and
"conjured" the bees to settle upon
it. The bees finally left the lamp
lot, but instead of going to the
Christmas tree, they lit upon the
iKidy of the Hiberian, covering him
from the waist to the ears. The
irishman found the burden too hot
and heavy for comfort, and at
tempted to shake it off, but in
vain. At length some women
came to the rescue with brooms,
and swept the bees from the unfor
tunate man, but not before they had
stung his face, neck and head in a
dreadful manner. His head became
swollen to the size of a barrel,and
the pain was almost unindurable,
and yesterday the man was in a
critical condition. A reporter of
the Auzeiger was a witness to the
scene, but did not learn the names of
the parties. St. Louis Democrat.
The Third Term.
Perhaps the. gravest of the dan
gers to which the country is sub
jected is the hunger and thirst of
Presidents to secure a second term.
It was this ambition which led
Abraham Lincoln to consent to
the inauguration of the most stu
pendous political machine ever in
vented the memorable provost
marshal system ; it was this which
pursued Andrew Johnson like a
phantom of unrest, and k was this
which possessed the thoughts of
Gen. Grant from the first moment
of his accession to his first term.
There is no man possessed of weak
human nature who can resist the
temptation to employ every means
within thegraspof his powerful place
to protract his Presidential occupan-.
cy. Probably there is no such mighty
stimulus to corruption In the coun
try as this thirst of Presidents to
perpetuate their reign. We believe,
and we have long advocated, that
the President should be-made eligi
ble to but a single term, that term
to be protracted for six j-ears. Cer
tainly under -no possible circum
stances, ought he to be at liberty to
scheme for the prolongation of
power beyond two terms. St. Ibul
