The days of the Forty-third Con

tion of the "Wind Cave," as the
''Frog Bank" will dissipate into
thin air. Kepresentatives and Sen
ators will hie themselves to- their

A currency bill has finally passed
both houses, as recommended by
the conference committee. "While
it does not meet fully the necessi
ties of the west, it afTordu a partial
relief to the stringent state of the
money market oi the "West and
South. The volume of greenback
currency is fixed at $382,000,000,
and the reserves are released
for circulation. Lastly, provides for
the redistribution of the currency,
and for free banking. This willgive
to the "West additional banking pri
vileges to the extent of some $50,
000,000. The land tax bill, which promised
such good results to the depleted ex
chequer of the State, in compelling
the payment of delinquent taxes
from the railroads, and which pas
sed the House by the personal and
untiring effort of Judge Crounse, has
virtually been defeated ic the Sen
ate. A Senate bill has been reported
by the committee in place of the
House bill which absolves the U. 1.
ana Central Pacific, and their
branches, from, and obligations al
ready incurred; requires the govern
ment to pay the cost of surveys,and
simply rcqujrps the roads to pay
their taxes in the future. The tenor
of the Senaie bill bears Ujxm the
face of it, legislation in the interest of
the railroads, instead of the inter
est of the government, and the
treasury of the State of Nebraska.
Its passage is quite questionable
in either House. The great event
of the season in the House was the
speech of flon JJutler upon the San
born contracts ami the Custom
House frauds. The announcement
that "old Ben" was to "let loose the
dogs of war" filled the galleries to
suffocation. Everj member of the
House was in his seat, and -when
the champion of invective broke
loose, the entire House was all at
tention. No such scathing deunci

A little incident occurred at the
National Hotel, a few days since,
which Is worthy of note hero. We
had just stepped jnto the barber
shop and inquired of the proprietor
if he thought we had hirsuite
enough to entte us to a ten cent
shave, when we wpre attracted by
several pretty loud expressions, to
the opposite ste of thp room. Here
we found oiir friend f afi, gesticula
ting wildly, and anathaniatizing
somebody in language not found
In the commandments; in his haqd
was an old sijk hat, whjch had seep
better days; hP held t up to. ur
gaze ; we ventured to enquire what's
up Judge, what's the matter, what's,
who, -what's up, whats the matter?
"Why some lunk head has carried
of my bran npw silk hat, and left
this dilapidated concern. "Why the
confounded idiot; why jiist ook
here." And the hat went down
over his eyebrows, on down past his
nose and rested upon his shoulders.
We could see nothing of that pellu
cid countenance, hut when the
nhapeau, was rajsed again, we saw
a race boiling with indignation,
f'Why- Styngan, the man that
owned that hat is a blockhead.,"
how it s possblp for such a head as
that to tmrr my hat I don't see I
should tltfnk any man could, tell his
own hat. Well, Judge, I must con
fess that is unfortunate, but I don't
see anv way out of the difficulty but
to put 'that hat away, save it, it
will keep, the progress of human
events makes great changes in the
existence of men, and the time may
come when your cranium will fill
the circumference of that hat; in
fact, if I judge correctly, it is not far
distant either. I understand you
are a candidate for the next Con
gress, and if this be so, before the
next election you will have as welled
head that will make the circumfer
ence of that hat without doubt."
The Judge vanished. We took
a little halm of gilead on our chin.
In come a dignified gei'tleman that
might have been a Congressman;
possibly he had raised potatoes and
practiced law in the vicinity of Fort
Calhoun; but then I won't swear to
it. At any rate he had a little mat
ter or importance to attend to at that
moment, he wanted to know "what
little puppet had changed hats with
him, "Why the man that couldn't
wear a bigger hat than that hadn't
got a thimble full of brains." I
wouldn't give a pen-wiper for a
thousand such ; what the d 1 am I
to do. Why the confounded thing
won't cover my bump of esteem,
and I am afraid to let the sun
strike on my bump of veneration,
for then I would not appreciate the
kindness of my friends when they
send me back to Congress again."
Well, I suppose I shall have to try
me another, I will send this out to
"Striek," I guess it will just about
fit him." Your correspondent walk
