tlVJJ , BEE7ICE HEFOBH AT THE
SOUTH.
President Grant has , according to
reliable advices , publicly declared
his determination , to inaugurate
seine wholesome reforms in the
civil service at the South. Itfis his
intention that henceforth there shall
be no just complaint on the score of
federal office-holders in that region.
"Whenever he found that an in
competent or otherwise unfit man
was holding a marshalship , a post-
office or any other federal office ,
coming in contact with the people ,
he should promptly remove him ,
and appoint the best man resident
in the community , in his place. He
was .fully satisfied that some bad
appointments had been madewhich
had tended to stir up strife ; but he
hoped to remove them just as soon
as any charges -were preferred and
sustained. "
Ho intimates very emphatically
that a programme is now under ad
visement having for its object the
appointment of a better class of
federal appointees throughout the
Southern States. "Whatever maybe
bo the complaint of the Southern
people about their State officials , Ibe
President declares that there shall
be none against those under the
government. It is to be hoped that
this programme will -be promptly
put into execution.
Itisan , Jndisputable fact that the
social and'political disorders that
prevail in the South have in a great
measure been aggravated by corrupt
and imbicile federal officials , who
very frequently were the direct cause
of riots and disturbances.
ADD NEBRASKA.
this caption the New
York organ of putrid reminiscences ,
the World , undertakes to congratu
late the Bourbons of the Empire
State upon the enrollment of Ne
braska under the banner of "hard
money , free trade and home rule. "
In this connection the following
obarflcterjstie letter is embodied as a
text for the llfcr/d's edttorjpl com
ments :
"OJiAitA , Neb. , Sept. 12 , ' 74.
"Ifanton Garble , Esq. ;
"DEAJt Stu : You will bo glad to
observe the growing sentiment
ihroughout the country in favor of
'Free Trade , ' 'Hard Money' and
'Home Rule. ' The Nebraska De
mocracy have spoken in their plat
form in the concise Jangupge of 41-
linois and New York , hoping there
by to aid in making it the creed of
our national party. We have nom
inated the strongest possjble ticket ,
some of which is bound to be elect
ed. The opposition to the dominant
party are also certain to have con
trol of the Legislature.
"Truly , etc.
-
"Chairman Democratic State Ceur
tral Committee. "
Now tno BEE ventures to assure
the New fork Bourbons that Mr.
Allen's sanguine prophecies are the
outcroppings of a very imaginative
brain. In the first place a large
portion of the Nebraska Democracy
have no faith in the platitudes of the
Democratic platform. In the second
place there is not the very remotest
probability that any candidate on
the Democratic State ticket will
come within five thousand votes of
being elected. Lastly , -wo appre
hend that Jlr. Allen's prediction
about our next legislature is based
upon the assumption that a major
ity of the Republican voters would
either stay at home or vote the
Bourbon ticket. Now wo say to the
World in all candor , don't add Ne
braska ! Don't rely on Allen as
your political weather prophet , if
you intend to publish a reliable al
manac for 1875.
WHO knows Silas Garber ? Albert
Tuxbury has been a resident of the
Stcte many years. He has filled
prominent positions at the hands of
the people. He is a man of un
blemished record and repute. But
who knows Silas Garber ? Wbat
claim has ho to the first office in the
gift of the people ? Herald.
Who knows Alber Tuxbury out
side of Otoocounty ? With the ex
ception of a handful of Bourbon
politicians of the "old settler"
scbool , nobody has over heard of
this fossilized Bourbon candidate.
Fifteen years ace Nebraska con.
tained 25,000 Inhabitants and the cn
tire settlement was confined to the
river counties.
Those honest Old Settlers had it
all their own way then. To-day
Nebraska counts moro than
a quarter of a million of people ,
and the old settlers have lost their
grip on tbc offices. New men , and
young men , are coming to the front ,
and43ilas Garber happens to bo one
of Uiat class.
A VERY bitter political contest is
Mow-in progress in that portion of
the Western Reserve known as
General Garfield's District. Tne
Democracy have made no .nomina
tion , and the contest is narrowed
down between General Garfield , the
regulai Republican nominee , and
JRey. R. H. Hurlburt , the Indepen
dent Republican candidate , who
counts upon the undivided support
of the Democracy. So far the ad
vantages appear to be with General
Garfield.
"No Germans need apply , " was
the motto of the late Democratic
Stale Convention. And now , as if
to add insult to injury , the Bourbon
organ is at great pains to berate the
German candidate on the Republi
can State ticket , when it well knowa
that his record as a private citizen
. i ami public servant is uuimpcacha-
'
ble.
TJ IE winning ways ot Uncondi
tional Surrender Grant are forcibly
illustrated by the following dispatch :
"WASHINGTON , Sept 10.
"Ib Gen. Emory , New Orleans :
"Put down that insurrection ; re
port afterwards. U. S. URANT. "

have organizeda Young

emotional pride on the time when
they voted for Jackson , Polk and
Buchanan.
ITEBEASKA SKETCHES.
( Special Correspondence of the BBS. )
BROWNVILLE , Sept. 21st , 1874.
Having packed our collar boy ,
waxed our moustache and lubricated
our left auricle we slid out for the U.
P. depot , took the train for this place
and , after wnirling through hah a
dozen dilapidated looking Iowa vil
lages , we passed into Missouri , and
drew the reins on our fiery , un
tamed iron mule at Phelps City , just
across the "Big Muddy" from
Brown ville.
A furious storm and the lateness
of the evening caused us to seek
shelter in the Phelps House , where
Mr. Robert White , the attentive
landlord , made us very comfortable ,
furnished us with a tip-top bed and
breakfast , and in. the morning we
took McGee , Bailey & Co.'s stage
for Brownville , which is now about
the muddiest town in the west ,
Omalm excepted ; but in spite of
the raud business is lively here , the
streets being thronged all day with
fanners marketing their grain and
fruits. Bro\\nville has three good
hotels , and each one takes the
DAILY BEE , which they , as well as
everyone else , considers the leading
paper of Nebraska , But of all the
hotels we have stopped at lately we
must give the palm to the "Union , "
kept by Air. Joseph Opelt , formerly
of Phelps City , Mo. Immediately
opposite the "Union House is an ele
gant brick store , lately completed.
M. L. Lowmaii occupies it , with a
splendid assortment of clothing
and gents furnishing goods.
A little further down Main street
we found Mr. George Marion , for-
mVly of Omaha. He is keeping a
general store , and by the number of
customers'thronging his counter we
should say he was doing.a thriving
business. His accomplished lady
keeps an extentive millinery store
two doors farther down. Nearxthe
foot of Main street our attention was
attracted by a stack of guns , ttiat
put us in mind of the jolly days
whep wp used tp train with , the fa-r
mous Omaha Rifles. Here "Crad-
dock & Son sell larce quantitiesXof
arms and ammunition , of the most
improved kinds. Mr. W. H. Small
has a fine store , where he supplies
his numerous customers with the
"staff of life , " andQth.ereooflthipg3
in ttie way of fruits and coufectioni
ery.
ery.The DAILY BEE , together with
periodicals of all kinds , ntntlonery ,
fancy goods , &c. , are kept for sale
by Mr , G. G- . Dunn , next door to
the post office.
We have not had time yet to visit
the country , but we ar { n/nrflged
tjiqt th.erp was a eplepfld 'prop of
small grain harvested in this ( Ne-
maba ) county , and the prospect was
good for an extra yield of corn ; but
about the 1st of July the weather
became dry , an $ continued so yntjl
' " ' "
thelstor8ept'emb"er. "This cut the
corn badly , and the farmers now
say that they will do well to get a
half crop. On the bottom lands
there is a fair crop , but on the up
land corn is Ijght ,
Fruit is mpre than abundant.
There are thousands of bushels of
peaches in Ibis county that are be
ing fed to stock. Mr. vJ. M. Kauf
man , proprietor of the Brownville
Nursery , says that there is a vast
amount of fruit , shade and forest
trees being planted in this part of
thp county , and that eventually
southern Nebraska is"bounfl be
the finest fruit district in the west.
The grasshoppers came here , but
did not do much damage , and the
eggs they deposited in the ground
have mostly been hatched , and the
late rains ha\ destroyed the young
hoppers.
Political mailers are very much
mixed. The Republicans and Inde
pendents have each a county ticket ,
and the candidates are all good men
( so it is said ) . The Temperance people
ple held their convention on the 19th-
and nominated a ticket , but chose
four of their men from the other
tickets , bringing out only one new
man , n , Mr. Ewing for Representa
tive. The Democrats have made
no nominations.
Brownsville has got a joke on her
City Marshal , Mr. David Campbell ,
( who is a leading member of the
Good Templars , and one of the pil
lars in the Temperance party ) . It
seems that David conceived the idea
of making a little trip to the rural
districts of Kansas in prder that he
might lake a little rest from the ex
citement and turmoil of political
life. On arriving at Alchison , he
took a whirl around town , sampling
meanwhile as much "silk-finish" as
ever old "Uncle Johnny Stan ton did
in his palmiest days. Finally , Da
vid ( like his illustrious namesake of
ancient fame ) became enamored
with another man's wife , and
thought that though "black , yet she
was comely. " Ho followed her and
she remonstrated , but still , nothing
daunted , he kept on and
went homo with her , and
proceeded to make love in the most
ardent manner , * when his sable
oharraer ordered him to leave the
house. But David drew his revolver
ver and polnting.it around careless ,
ly caused considerable excitement ,
which soon attracted a largo crowd ,
including some half dozen police
men , who looked on in awe , for the
valiant Marshal insisted on being
master of the situation , and solemn
ly promised that ho would perfor
ate with bullets any ono who dared
to approach him. At last through
some strategic movement , the Mar
shal and his little revolver was cap
tured ; and after passing a night in
the jail and interviewing tbe Police
Judge next morning , ho concluded
to return to Brownville and organ
ize the Temperance Convention ,
MORAL Temperance reformers
should avoid tcmpations , and not
go to Atchinsonto rusticate.
Senator Tipton , H. M. Atkinson ,
Governor Fuwias , Hon. James B.
Church , ( Temperance Candidate for
Governor ) Hon. H. 0. Lett , and
Judge R. V. Hughes , together with
a large number of smaller fry poli-
iticlans , all have their homes in
Brownville.
There is nothing new in railroad
matters. For the past four years
Brownvlllo has been promised a
railroad "before the snow flies , " but
the snow comes and goes and still
they pay taxes on railroad bonds
without having- any railroad in
operation as yet ; but a railroad to
connect Brownvillo with the rest of
tbe world is a commercial necessity
and must be completed before long.
There has been a heavy newspa
per figut between Mr. A. W. Pol
lock , the postmaster of this place ,
and the editor of the Granne * . The
postmaster stirs the Granger man
about every week with a half col
umn in the Advertiser , and the
Granger replies by devoting at least
two columns a week to this quarrel ,
but that makes It scarcely even , for
the postmaster can put moro ideas
in a half column than the Granger
.man can in four. " "
We cannot close this article with
out returning thanks to Hon. H. C.
Lett , Mrs. A. W. Pollock , B. V.
Hughes , and G. S. Dunn for kind
favors shown to RANGER.
Why is a beautiful lady's fie

Because it is an interesting leg-end ,

( Correspondence of the BEE. )
FREMONT , Sept. 22.
EDITOR BEE :
For some years past I have been
traveling In , the States "west of the
hikes , and if acceptable will oc
casionally report to you what I see
and hear in the highways and by
ways of the north -west. For two
years past have been constantly in
.Nebraska and feel a citizens' Interest
in the questions of local interest.
During the past two weeks I have
been in Douglas , Washington ,
Dodge , Burt and Cuming counties ,
Y herelfind the farmers rejoicing
in the possession of about hah ! a
crop of com , three-fourths of a crop
of small grain , and last but not
least , I find fine herds of stock
where four years ago a single cow
was a .rare sight. Ther ? is some
grumbling but general thankfulness -
ness far blessings secured , particu
larly in sections through which the
refugees from the grasshopper region
have "passed , comparison with these
having furnished a healthy antidote
for'grumbling. Improvements in
the" railroad villages are particularly
noticeable. Your readers are
probably familiar with the topography
graphy of the country , and the
minutia of Blair , Fremont , West
Point and other towns of five years
growth , concerning them I will
only add that all toWhs are like
babies to a disinterested party
much alike. These towns are no
exceptions , an'd their improvement
truly surprising to any one not
familiar with the precocious ways
of western infants. Bell Creek is
very proud of its advantages , but
its citizens think that some corre
spondents have lately overdone it ,
and knowing that "flattery is the
food of fools , " they ask for more
discrimination in future correspon
dents.
Two miles from Fontenelle is the
station of Nickerson , where there } s
a fine freight house , groin elevator ,
store , postoffice , etc. , rather too far
.for convenience , but near enough to
Fontenelle , perhaps , to.infuse some
ne'\ylife'into that relict of a town.
At Hooper there are several fine
stores , two elevators , two saloons
and a fine frefglUihQuse , In which
thp peopje wereholding ( i Sunday
sclioof festival aaj passed.
" At 'Scribner they have the stir
d life incldentto a new town.
West Point and Tekama I will
reserve for a future letteiT" The people
ple are pleased to have the products
for which their section { $ ftpted , fa
vorably noticed j but after all they
are jrioredeepjy interested In schools ,
finance , railroads , politics and reli x-
-
gion.
In Washington county there is
general satisfaction at the nomina
tion of Mr. Crounse. They will
ypto for him almost unanimously ,
and will elect the Republican ticket
generally. One hears , however , a
great deal which shows how zeal
ously public men are watched. You
would infer from the conversation
of somp that the average congress
man spends all bis time in "Wash
ington in riding in sixteen hundred
dollar carriages , or at champagne
suppers all at the government ex
pense.
I mention this that our Represent
tatives may renew their appreejar
tion of Burns' lines ,
" ' wad torn power the glf tie gle us ,
To see our Eel aj others te us , " etc.
I have heard some severe criti
cisms from religious people on the
Omaha press generally the charge
being that the press is given to slur
ring religious matters. What par
ticular sect , of the many , eaph
claiming to be right , has been most
offended , I did not learn ; but this I
believe , religious people do not seem
to realize that honest skepticism is
the best of teachers Of religious
truth. That they can give tone to
the press if they will ; that if they
dent , it she KB their weakness , and
that true religion is the same wheth
er exemplified under the Christian
injunction , "Fear Gcd and have
mercy , " or the Jewish command ,
"Do right and fear no man. "
During my stay here in Fremont ,
I Imvp met a number of "Wheel-
horse" Democrats they are geper-
ally gentlemen , are usually .suave
and polite , and I think their pres
ence here to-day , will account for u
part of the inspiration which will
to-morrow emanate fropi the Sena
torial Independent convention. In
hunting for a nan de plume , 1 find
"General , " Colonel , " "Captain , "
and other distinguished titles , all
appropriated , and as tbe correspon
dence of some papers is like some
books , "lies from end to end , " I
have concluded to appear in my true
rank , that of a private.

Ho more beautiful instance of fe
male devotion can , perhaps , be re
called than that of the young lady
who refuses boiled onions for the
Bake of the man she loves.
When our American young men
return from a trip abroad , their prin
cipal knowledge of foreign parts
consists hi parting their hair in the
middle ,
A politician was pinioned hand
and foot , and lai i in the grass on
the line of march of the Northwest
ern army of grasshoppers , but they
never touched him. And thus do
our fondest hopes decay.
A Springfield gentleman conclud
ed t > have a bath the other evening ,
and in the dark , got hold of a chunk
of stove-blacking by mistake for thp
soap. A moro polished man than
he was has never been seen in the
whole State of Massachusetts ,
There must be a good deal of suf
fering in Nashville. The Union and
American says : "That kindhearted
ed gentleman who , with a commen
dable exhibition of self-denial , pre
sented an indigent family with two
dollars in currency yesterday was
grieved to meet said family returnIng -

An exchange , ridiculing the coun
try fairs , which make no effort at
good shows , says that one in Ver
mont consisted of a calf , a goose , a
pumpkin , and a horse. It rained
so hard the first night that thp goose
swam off , tbe calf broke loose and
ate the pumkln , and a thief prowl
ing about mounted the horse , and
drove the calf off before him , and so
ended the fair.
Queer association that is which
has been established at Austin , Ne
vada I. It is called the Free and In *
dependent Grass-Widowers' Bean-
Bating League. It holds weekly
festivals for the consumption of tbe
vegetable indicated. We suppose
that some mysterious property has
been discovered In beans calculated
to aauage the pangs -of separation ,
and to prevent absence from dimin
ishing conjugal affection. John
Norrls is " "President of the League ;
and very much we should , like to
know what Mrs. John Norris thinks
of it.
