Large Attendance and a Good Time.
Several months ago tho Federal
soldiers of Nebraska organized an as
sociation and fixed upon the Fourth
of July as the time and Lincoln as
the place for a general re-union and
At 5 o'clock Monday morning the
soldiers of Omaha, accompanied by
our reporter, left this city and took
the early train on the St. Joe Railroad
en route for Lincoln, vfaPlattsmouth.
The company arrived at Plattsmouth
at 0 o'clock, where they were joined
by a large party of ladies and gentle
men, nud at lOi o'clock were steaming
up the Platte Valley in the direction
of our thriving young State Capital.
Passing through the growing town of
Ashland, the train (which, by the
Way, consisted of one passenger car,
three freight cars temporarily seated
with rough piue boards very trying
to the trousers aud the patience and
two open platform cars) arrived at the
end of the road, seven miles from
Lincoln, about half-past one o'clock.
Here were congregated almost the en
tire population of Lincoln, with Gov.
Butler at the head, and everything in
the shape of a wheeled vehicle that
could be found, for probably a circuit
of 10 miles. Stages, omnibusses, farm
and lumber wagons, carriages, phae
tons, buggies, sulkies, and, in fact ev
erything that could be supposed, by
any stretch of the imagination, capa
ble of transporting the honorable
guests of the city.
At.3 o'clock the procession pulled
up on Market Square, amid the cheers
of the people and a salute from the
artillery. Here it was announced that
for the purpose of giving the visitors
a breathing spell, nothing further
would be done until 5 o'clock, at
which hour the soldiers were request
ed to meet on the square and march
to the Capitol, where refreshments in
abundance would be provided.
Most of the party immediately
made a descent upon the Atwood
House, for the purpose of enjoying
the luxury of a good square meal,
nearly all of the Omaha party having
fasted since the evening previous.
At 5 o'clock the procession was
formed, aud preceded by the Lincoln
Bra9S Band, inarched through the
streets to the Capitol, where the gen
erous ladies had provided a splendid
banquet, to which full justice was
done by the crowd. Probably more
than five hundred persons were-fed at
the public tables, and yet, to the credit
of the Lincoln ladies be it said, there
was an abundance for all. The ban
quet was spread in the open air, on
the Capitol grounds, and was free to
all who desired to partake of the good
things so bountifully prepared.
Immediately following the banquet,
the crowd repaired to the Hall of the
House of Representatives, which had
been neatly and tastefully decorated
for the occasion, to listen to the ora
tion and attend to the business of
electing officers for the ensuing year,
The meeting was called to order by
the President, Dr. Enos Lowe, of
Omaha, and Governor Butler welcom
ed the soldiers to the capital in the
following neat and appropriate rnnn
ner. The Governor said :
Soldier 8 of Nebraska : To me has
been assigned the pleasant duty of
welcoming you to our young capital
city. No extended address ie expect
ed, or would be appropriate. You
meet here on this beautiful prairie to
hold a social reunion to recount the
toils, the sufferings and the triumphs
of the camp and the battle field. Let
me assure you that the people of the
State are proud of your record. No
State can point to a better, truer, or
more glorious one. When, early in
the spring of 1861, the President is
sued his proclamation, calling into the
service an additional volunteer force,
and assigning to our young territory,
at that time weak in numbers and re
sources, and canstantly assailed on her
western frontiers by a savage and
merciless foe, the duty of furnishing
a regiment, you stepped promptly for
ward and gave your services to your
Government. From that time,
through all the long years of strife
and bloodshed, to the glorious day of
peace. Nebraska soldiers were to be
found wherever duty called, whether
opposed to the armed hosts of rebel
lion in ihe Southwest, or doing equal
ly important service In repelling In
dian invasions on our western fron
tiers. In all places and at all times they
did good and true service for their
The battlefields of Milford, Donald
son, Shiloh, Corinth, Cape Girardeau,
Chalk Bluffs, Syllamon, Red Bank,
Jacksonport, Clarendon, and of the
frontier, bear witness to their prowess.
Not In vain did my predecessor
"invoke the aid of every lover -of his
country and his home to come
promptly forward to sustain and pro
tect the same." Not in vain do I, on
this anniversary day, call upon the
citizens of ouryoungcity and State to
give you welcome and to do you hon
or. They will delight In honoring
you ana me service you nave perform
ed. They will remember that to
that service, so well performed, they
are indebted, in no small degree, for
the peace and prosperity now enjoyed
And not only to you, but to those
present with you to-day, who were
notconnected with your organizations
but who were equally zealous in the
good cause, and who, in the regiments
of other States, proved their valor and
their patriotism. Let me say that in
our Western hearts you will always
find an earnest welcome and a full ap
preciation of your worth. Nebraska
will always give the just need of
firaise to the heroes of the great rebel
ion. rue taocs oi many t your old com-
rades will be missed from this and
"On Fame's eternal campaign-ground
Their silent tents ttxo spread,
And glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead."
Their work is done well done.
Yours not yet complete.
As soldiers-citizens, it will be your
duty and your privilege for many
years, X trust, to guard with the inter
ests of your State proteqt and cher
ish her reputation, aud her welfare at
home and abroad.
Even as the private soldier could
not shirk his duty without endan
gering the safety of the entire army,
so the private citizen cannot, having
the welfare of his State at heart, leave
undone any duty, however slight,
which might advance her material in
terests. Let us all, therefore, prompt
ly and cheerfully come up to the high
est standard of citizenship, that our
State may enjoy all the blessings of a I
good government at Rome and an eu-

OBeoft&e Brightest e poteen your life;
The Governor's remarks were re
ceived with great applause by the
After the Governor had concluded,
the President of the Association, Dr.
Lowe, arose, nud in a few feeling re
marks, alluded to the occasion that
had brought together this assemblage
before him, from every part of the
State. Tho Dbctor said that not only
the City of Lincoln, but the whole
State of Nebraska, to-day, wafted a
hearty and fervent "God Bless You"
to the assemblage "before him. He
then briefly recapitulated the manner
and under what circumstances the as
sociation was formed, and how it was
determined that every man within
the limits of the Suite, who had
served in the Federal army, should be
entitled to membership. He then
touchingly spoke of the gallant com
rades of those present, who had de
monstrated their patriotism by freely
offering their lives that our country
might live. "They had answered
their last roll-call," but their honored
names should be held in kind remem
brance upon all such occasions as this.
Rev. Mr. Davis then offurcd a prayer
to the throne of grace, and the Lin
coln Musical Union sang the national
anthem, "My Country ;tis of Thee,"
in a very creditable manner.
Upon the conclusion of the anthem,
Col. Savage was introduced by the
President, and read the "old, old, yet
ever new" document, the Declaration
of American Independence; after
which the Lincoln Brass Band favor
ed the audience with the "Star Span
Tho principal feature of i the day,
however, was the oration, which was
delivered bv General LivinKstbn, o'f
Plattsmouth. We regret that we have
not space to give it in full, as it was
not only an eloquent tribute to the
soldiers of the Union army, but was
replete with historic interest. The
General occupied nearly an hour in
its delivery, and was listened to
throughout with the closest interest
Immediateli' following the oration.
Col. Chase, of Omaha, was presented
to the audience, and rend a poem,
partly original and partly selected.
The exercises were concluded by
the whole audience joining in the
song, "Rally Round the Flag."
Upon the conclusion of the exerci
ses, the President requested the
soldiers present to retain their seats,
as it was desirable to attend to the
busiuess of electing officers for ihe en
suing year, and such other matters as
might be brought before the meeting.
After the audience had dispersed,
leaving only the soldiers present.
Major Hawes, of Omaha, obtained
the lloor, and in a neat little speech,
presented the name of Col. Robert W.
Furnas, of Brownville, who was
unanimously chosen President of the
association for the ensuing year.
Col. Chase, Col. Bairdand Sargeant
Woodward were elected Vice Presi
dents, and Major Hawes Secretary for
the next term.
The Executive Committee was next
elected, and consists of the following
named gentlemen :

Omaha was unanimously chosen as
the place for holding the next annual
meeting, (the time to be designated
by the Executive Committee), aud
General S. A. Stricklaud was selected
to deliver the annual address.
Major Pat Hawes offered the follow
ing resolution, which was adopted
with many demonstrations of enthu
siasm: Resolved, That the soldiers and
sailors of the Nebraska Association
return to the Committee of Arrange
ments, and to the citizeus pf the city
of Lincoln, their thanks for the hos-
Ei table manner in. which we have
The thanks of the Association were
returned to the President, the orator,
the reader, and all the other officers,
for the able manner in which they
discharged their duties.
General Liviugston offered a resolu
tion, which was adopted, that the
Legislature be memoralized to make
an appropriation to defray the expen
ses of the meeting of this organiza
tion. Major Gillespie offered a resolution
that Congress be memoralized to do
nate a sufficient number of captured
cannon to erect a monument to the
dead Nebraska soldiers at Omaha.
A motion was made to adjourn, but
before the President could present it
to the meeting, Col. Chase obtained
the floor upon a point of order, and
suggested that something had Joeen
forgotten that soldiers had no right to
forget. "The ladies, God bless them,
had labored night and day for a week
past, that we might not go hungry

They were given with a will, and the
Colonel was highly complimented on
this public manifestation of his gal

About 9 o'clock arrangetuUnts were
completed for the ball, ami the doors

"beauty and chivalry" or the capital

The ball was a credit to the man

taste of the citizens of Lincoln. The
hall was crowded almost to suffoca

At 10 o'clock A. ar., yesterday, the
excursionists bade farewell to Lincoln
and its generous-hearted people, all
feeling that no efforts had been spared
to make the occasion one of the most
enjoyable and memorable in the his
tory of the State. We should be re
creant to our duty did we not particu
larly mention the eilorts of Maj. Gil
lespie, to whom, in a great measure,
is due the success of the occasion.
Though one or two little oversights
occurred, that for the moment inter

In conclusion, our reporter desires
to express his thanks to Gen. Strick
land and Col. Chase, of Omaha, and
Mr. West, of Lincoln, for very many
favors. "He was a stranger and ye

mention may be evidence that he ap
preciated the favor.

There is much in the manner in
which religious exercises are conduc
ted in the family. The worship is
none the less solemn because familiar.
All the surroundings should therefore'
be in keeping with the hour wheuthe
family comes into the presence qf tlfe
Great God. Let father nnd mother
sit side by side, let the children not be
scattered in lounging attitudes round
the room nnd at a distance, but placed
near enough to each other to make a
groupo, so that the unity of the wor
ship shall appear as well as exist.
Parents are not so careful as they
ought to be of these outward things
in a child's religious education. The
little one is taught to "say his prayer"
but how? Perhaps with noise of
conversion, or play about him, he
kneels after he has clambered on his
bed, and rattles over the set words
while he gazes round the room, ready
with the "amen" to burst into a
laugh with those that laugh around.
It is not at all wonderful that he
grows to consider the whole affair
very useless and unmeaning.
Give your child different thoughts.
You are doing what the disciples
asked theLord to do, when they said,
"Teach us to pray." You are teach
ing your child to pray, and to pray
aright is, as Coleridge said, '-'the
greatest achievement of tho Christ
ian's warfare on earth." At this
hour of his childish prayer, your boy
comes into communion with the Most
High, and you should breathe softly,
while angels listen. They seo a dif
ferent meaning in the act than you
can recognize. That infant petition
has in it what may touch your heart,
if you will think.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
Who can keep his soul but God?
What a possibility is in that little
word "if," as possibility which darts
a thrill of anguish through your
breast? In what arm could his soul
nestle if not Christ's, if it should go
forth from that fair body to-night?
Will you not, then, hush the room,
and h'ave father and children stand
silently by, as with clasped hands
and bowed head your child kneels
reverently ntyourknee and solemnly
lisps that prayer ? Perhaps your face
will rest upon his head while your
full heart joins in the petition. Aik

Bo of good cheer, O soul !
Angels nre nigh ;
Evil can harm thee not,
God hears thy cry.
Into no void shalt thou
Spring from this clay ;
Ills everlasting arm
Shall be thy stay.
Day hides the stars from thco,
Senses hide the heaven
Waiting tho contrite soul
That here has striven.
Soon shall the glory dawn
Making earth dim:

A story is told of an old clergyman
who had the most unbounded faith in
Watt's hymn book. He was fond of
saying that he could not open to any
page without finding nn appropriate
hymn. A mischievious son of his
thought it would be a good joke to
test his father's faith. So he took an
old song nnd pasted it on one of the
pages of the Jjook, over a hymn, so
nicely that it could not be easily de
tected. At church on Sunday morn
ing, the minsteri happened to open
at that page, and commenced to read:
'Old Grimes Is dead."
There was a sensation in the audi
ence. He looked at the audience and
they looked at hhn ; but such was the
faith in Watt's hymns, that he under
took it again, commencing with the
same line. There was another sensa-
tion in the
audience. Looking at it
then at the congregation,
at the choir, he said:
it is here in the regular
order in Watt's hymn, book, nnd we
will sing it anyhow.

To the Electors of Nebraska,
We publish the following be
On Wednesday, the 20th of July
1S70, a committee of the Labor-ltc-
lorm l'nrty of this btatc, acting mi
union with similar organizations
throughout the county, will be held
In the County Court House, atOmaha
to make nominations for the various
State elective offices, which, your vote
shall confirm or reject at tho ensuing
fall election. The" basis of represen
tatives shall be one delegate from each
precinct throughout the State, the
busiuess of the convention to be con
ducted according to the rules of order
and usages of the Labor Reform As-
Hitherto the nominations has been
such, that you, while presumedly the
arbitrators of your own political des
tiny, have actually bad no voice wnat
ever in placing in nomination for
your suffrages the men you deem
qualified as your representatives to
govern and administer your amurs.
Hence the Labor Reform Party ignor
ing all existing political parties, and
the prece dents which has been es
tablished for their guidance, seeking,
the public good by an expressjqn of
the popular wilj, .invite the whole
people of .Nebraska to delegate mass,
convention believing that their -labors
faithfully and judiciously per-,
formed must meet -with universal,
approbation sincetheprinciples which;
direct them is to secure a return to
the primary system of government,
vested by the constitution of popular
sovereignty, for the great benefit of
the people, and for the protection of
our Democratic-Republican institu
tions. The issues before the people are em
bodied in the platform of this party,
embracing measures of Radical pro
gression, demanding the equitable
adjustment of every adverse interest
in the country, without disturbing
the prerogatives conceded by custom
or law otherwise than in couiiict with
the true interests of the country, or
in antagonism to sound political econ
omy and the stability of our Govern
ment. Our aims are to establish nn identi
ty between the three divisions of la
bor, agriculture, mechanical, and
mental ; to secure to to tne toner an,
acknowledgement of his inherent
rights, and just compensation for his
labor; to regulate the relations be
tween labor and capital without in
fringing upon the privileges of either;
to discourage every effort toward pau
perizing the Ame'rican workingman
by whatever means attempted ; to se
cure a permanent non-fiuctuating cur
rency, based upon the wealth of the
couutry, and the stability of the Gov
ernment; to regulate the inordinate
rates of interest immediately charge
able upon the people ; to advance our
commercial greatness, and encourage
the develepement of our internal re
sources ; to require the adjustment of
tariff laws in conformity with the re
quirements of the whole country ; to
discourage monopolies, in whatever
form, however and wherever existing;
to cement the Union of the States in
the bonds of uuiversal fraternity,
compatible with justice, national hon
or and greatness, and finally toachieve
the realization of every hope of illim
itable power ond national superiority
incalculated in the Declaration of In
dependunfce. You are invited, on these bases, to
nominate the men your wisdom will
dictate best able for their accomplish
ments, irrespective of past political
Sorties. No longer permit parties to
ivide you, when your interests, and
the interests of your country demand
your united efforts in reforming the
abuses of power which is weighing
you down to the lowest depths of po
litical degredatlon. Letyourresponse
lo this call and the principles which
have incited to it, be such as to entitle
you to esteem and gratitude of the
whole people of these United States.

Three Poets In a Pnzzlc.
I led the horse to the stable, when
a fresh perplexty arose. I removed
the harness without difficulty, but
after many strenuous attempts, I could
not remove the collar. In despair, I
called for assistance, when aid soon
drew near. Mr. Woodswoth brought
his ingenuity into exercise, but, after
several unsuccessful efforts he relin?
quished the achievement as a thing
altogether impracticable. Mr. Cole
ridge now tried hand, but showed no
more grooming skill than hi3 prede-
cesssor, for, alter twisting the poor
horse's neck almost to strangulation,
nnd to the great danger of his eyes,
ave up the useless task, pronouncing
thnt the horses head must have grown
(gout or dropsy) since the collar wa3
put on, for he said it was a downright
impossibility for such a huge os fron-
tis to pass through so narrow a collar!
Just at this moment the servant girl
came near, nnd understanding the
cause of our consternation, said : "La,
master, you don't go about it in the
right way. You should do this,"
when turning the collar completely
upside down, slipped it off in a mo
ment, to our great humility and won
derment, each satisfied afresh that
There were heights of knowledge in
the world which we had notattained.

A lazy posture in the sanctunryfs
offensive to a refined and reverential

the place, the acts of worship, and
the fellow participants. We should

during prayer, many sit. without
change of posture, and during the sef

saw a layman in a conference meeting
lead in prayer with his hands iuihifl
pockets. Ministers also frequently
