LETTER FROM NEBRASKA.
Reptblicak Cttt.Harlan Co.,1
" ; Nbbbaska, April 30, 1873. J
, Editob Chronicle : Not having
seen anything rrom the greaf Repub
lican Valley, lit your paper, and In
order to fulfill oiy promif roada to
many of your readereI will attempt
a silgDt- aesonpuoiu- ai mauy c
your readers have read the letter of
H- D Niles, from Gibbon; of thia
State, they are probably somewhat
familiar with the Platte Valley. But
the Platte Valley can be compared to
the Republican Valley about as
Champion or Soulhington can be
compared to the best townships in
Two years ago the' frontier or Wis
valley was on the Little Blue River,
at Maredlan ; to-day the frontier is at
the month of Driftwood, in Range 30,
west r.Sf., one hundred and eighty
miles west of Maredlan. Republican
City is in Bangs 17; between thia and
tba frontier settlers lathe tow Da of
Alma, Orleans, Melrose.Arapahoeand
Red Willow, all flourishing. The Ra
publican Valley is well watered with
springs that form little streams on
both sides of the river. The timber
that grows on these little streams are
eottOB'Wood. box -eider, elm, . ash
and cedar. I think that the RepublM
, . ti., thmrt I
can Valley is belle Umbered than I
any ather part of tbe west liiat I bs.Tt
lyet seen, The soil la nbeut the same
s ail prairie soil, very 'easy to -work,
and easier broken up than prairie east
of here; aaturapy of moist nature
We have had no rain' here since Sep
tember last, yet old ground' is moist
and plows np mellow. Plowing com
menced here about the first of March,
and wheat is all in now '
A company is being organized here
now to form a new location, a loca
tion that was made by men tbafhave
inent six months of time-' and some
money trying to find a good locatlorff

ARTICLES ON ASTRONOMY.
During the last half century many
mathematicians hare applied . their
favorite study to the field of astro
nomlcaal discovery. Sir Isaao New
ton prepared i the way two hundred
years agoj He discovered the force
by which all the planets are held to
wards the pentxal sun, and by which
they act upon each other. An invis
ible body may be so situated as to draw
a visible body out of its place. By care
fully observing tbe displacement, and
determining the weight, or gravita
ting force of the body moved, and
the direction In which It is taken out
of - its regular course, the cor
responding weight and position
of the -disturbing body can be
found. Certain relations are known
ta exist between the visible planets
regulating their motions, their mag
nitudes, and their distances from tba
sun. These relations were all found
to hold true in the case of Uranus.
Still all of the irregularities observed
prior to the discovery of that planet
were not satisfactorily accounted for,
and new suspicious were awakened
by observed deviations in the motions
of Uranus and Its satelites. Adams,
of England, and Le Verrler, of France
and other eminent mathematical as-
rtronomers. applied themselves to the
task of finding the unknown distur
ber. ( The two men named bad, at
the same time, reached definite con
clusions, though unknown to each
other. Adams was reviewing bis
work. : Le Verrier wrote Dr. Galle of
the Berlin Observatory, to look for the
supposed planet in a particularly de
scribed part of tbe heavens ; and point
ing his great telescope to the place
indicated, the Prusian taw, on the 23
of September, 1846, what the French

the solar system is estimated .at about
thirty times tbe earth's distance, or
2,743,000,000 miles from the sun. Its
diameter is 38,000 miles, making the
planet more than ninety-three times
the earth's volume. It requires 1041
years to jnake one revolution around
tbe sun. During 1873 it msy be found
by the far sighted telesoopist near the

How does sugar come here?
Last year the 643,789 tons of angar
shipped to this country came meetly
from Cuba. Porto Rioo,Brasil,ManiIa,
Jamaica, San Domingo,- and Barba-
doea. It came in bogs beads weighing
1 ,p00 pounds, boxes weighing 450 and
bags weighing L50 pounds. A large
part of it came in a black, dirty, 'raw'
state, and some called "centrifugal"
had the water - whirled out of it in
centrifugal machines before it lea
Cuba. So sugar is quoted at "raw"
and "centrifugal." Raw sugar" Is
worth about 8 cents and centrifugal 9
cents per pound.. Cuba sugar ia the
beet sugar, but it all has to be cleaned
before it is fit to Use, and then the raw
sugar wholesales for about 8 cents per
pound more. From dirty 8 cent su
gar tbey make white lump sugar
worth 111, light yellow worth 10,
dark yellow worth ; Pi, and . syrup

How do they do this ? - :
This is what I saw for The Graphic
yesterday, in the largest sugar refinery
In the United States..'.- - .
First, the sugar in filthy black

Willlamsburgh docks, where yon see
these immense sugar houses.. Then
stevedores carried it back to a big

First, the dirty liquid is pumped
into one thousand-gallon cauldrons,
with a steam pipe In the btfttom.
Then, blue litmus paper(pa per soaked
in bine cabbage juice) is dippee into
it to see if it is sour. If it is soar, the
blue paper is changed to red. Than
they throw in a pail of lime. This
kills the acid, br the acid leaves the

from the slaughter houses, into-each

How is this white transparent syrup

.This is simply done by taking the

by boiling it in a vacuum. It would

After boiling the syrop -down -to a

the water runs out, leaving the sugar
to . crystalize in a bard white cake,
such as used to be soid In the market.
But now-a-days the pure white sugar
loaves are sawed up into; regular:
shaped cubic pieces of sugar. The
soiled sugar or hose , with yellow
streaks in them, are crushed into
lumps, and the sawdust and leavincs
are made into granulated and pul ver-
izea sugar. .-
Where does the yellow sugar come
from? :: -.-';
The syrup which runs out when the
white sugar Is eryatailting-the resi
due is treated in the same manner as
tbe original Cuban sugar, when an
inferior sugar and an anterior ay rap
results. The syrup growirtnore 1

not be erystalited; - It ia. aeur and
salty. Thia import er brawn sugar is
shoveled into a centrifugal revolving
machine, which revolvs two thousand
times per minute.' This throws out
the water through a strainer, leaving
tbe sugar quite light and mealy.
"Which is the cheapest to use
brown sugar or white ?'.'. . I asked of

LATER—PARTICULARS OF THE MOVEMENT.
Nbtw York, April 29 A Herald
Special from the Lava Bed, dated the
26 fays: .. .
The force' under Captain Thomas,
whiob started to reoonnoiter the posi
tion supposed to be held by the Mo
docs, numbered sixty-nine men. The
object was mainly to find out how the
Modooa were situated, and whether
mortars could be brought up and used
fTectivsly against them. Ai . the
troops approached the cave lava beds,
about half past ton, onr command was
brought to a halt and tbe men allow
ed to take "iest. The story of the
first firs is differently reported, some
saying that five or six shots were fired
and others . only four, hut Tlckuor
says positively, that it came from a
party of nine Indians who occupied
a bluff to the eastward of where the
troops were stationed. .-. Major Thomas
Immediately threw, his-men into
skirmishing Ardor, with Lieutenant
Wright's company on the right The
latterhowever, had not got Into po
sition before they were flanked to the
right by a party of fourteen other In
dians, thai had come up to tbe assis
tance of those who fired. Tbe first
cross fire on Wright's men proved
very demoralising, and tbey fell back
in confusioo, - leaving their gallant
leader In an exposed situation, and.
supported by a few of his a on -commissioned
officers." I U the mean time
another small party of. Indiana had
obtained a position to tbe left and
opened a raking fire on the two bat
teries of artillery.
It was a fearful trap, and the first
four shots were only fired to draw the
troops more directly between the fire
of the Indians on the right and left.
The rout was complete, and with.' the
exception of the officers and non-com-miteiened,'
officers, the majority of
wham lay stretched ou the rocks with
their life blood ebbing fast away, tbe
watchword was "sauve qui pent."
Co fused and demoralised aa they
Were, the men became an easy prey
to the MVca, who, confident la the
protection X their native rocks, shot
them down like so many frightened
deer. Occasionally,-' news was
brought in by the soared stragglers,
exaggerated in the extreme, but sig
nificant of some dire disaster. Many
of these men, who bad deserted their
officers ta the time of peril, had seen
an hundred Indians all around them.
Fear had distorted their vission, and
made them so helpless that one of
their no ruber was afterwards found
dead on the field without a shot. He
had been butchered by knives., and so
panic struck, that ho could not fire a
shot in his own defence. '
. There waa a mystery about tbe
attack that Bobody appeared to solve,
aa to how the troops were so complete
ly surprised, i If - in camp, where
were the pickets or advanoed skir
mishers? It appeared so strange tbst
a party of sixty-nine men should be i
almost surrounuea cy tne in mans,
without their being aware of a sign
of an Indian, as far as they could see.
in ia tact alone, will give tne puouc
an idea of the nature of the ground
in which these Indians fight, and
what our soldiers have to contend
.During the nltrht Indians were
creeping through the rocks to scalp
and strip the dead soldiers. - Coming
through Colonel Green's lines, I told
him where the remains of batteries K
and-A were te bo found. Colonel
Green immediately moved forward
bis line to the place indicated, and
there hid in somesaze bush, were the
naaea pouies of Major Thomas, Lieu
tenant mows, sergeant Bower and
six others. - Colonel Wright's body
lay a little to the left, and on the
right was Lieutenant Harris severely
wounded, and the bodies of five of his
men stripped of all their clothing-.
Forty-nine were killed and wounded
out of a command of sixty-nine men.

HEALTHFULNESS OF LEMONS.
When people feel the need of an
acid, if they would let vinegar aloae,
and use lemons or sour apples, they
would feel just as well satisfied,' and
receive no injury. And a suggestion
may not come amiss as to a good plan
when lemons are cheap in the market.
A person should, in those times, pur
chase several dozen at ouce, and pre
pare them for use in the warm, weak
days of spring and summer, when
acid, especially citric and malic, or
the acids of lemons aud ripe fruits,
are so grateful and usefuL press your
hant on the lemon, and roll it back
aud forth briskly on the table, to
make it squeeze more easily; then
pre the juice into a howl, or tumbler,
never into tin; strain out all the seeds,
as they give a bad taste. ; Remove all
the pulp from the peels, and boll In
water, a pint for a dozen pulps, to
extraot the add. .A few minutes'
balllne is enough: then strain the
water with tbe juice of the lemons ;
put a pound oi wnite sugar w a pint
of the Juice; boll ten minutes ; buttle
it; and your lemonade Is ready. Put
a tablespoonful or two of this lomon
syrup, in a glass of water, and you
bays a cooling, healthy driuk.

THE NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD.
Commercial Advantages and Connections.
Pugel Sound, a deep and land look -"
edarm of the sea, abounding with
hatuml harbors, indents the western ' -'
coast of the continent in Washington -.
Territory nearly 200 miles,- carrying
tne nnvigauou or tne r"aciuc Uceau
that f.tr inland and eastward. On the "
other hand, Lake Superior extends -"
the navigation of the Atlantic Ocean, .
tbe St. Lawrence and -the. Lake
chaicj some 300 miles farther west "
than LaketMichlgan. The Northern ' '
Paciflo Railroad wil span the conti-
nent and unite these opposite laden- ,
tetions or water-wavs by the shortest ...
possible line. Tbe harbors cf PugL-t
Sound are already the centra of ra
pidly growing commerce with nearly
all parts of the world; and thesalllntr
distance tetween these harbors and t
the ports of Asia is claimed -by expe
rienced navigators to be materially '"
less than between San Francisco and -
Asia. At Portland, Oregon, the-,
Northern Pacific will connect with
the ooast lines of road extending to
California, with tbe steamboat lines-'
of the Columbia River and the ooast- -wise
trade of the sea.
: On the east, improvements uow
making and projected in the canals
uniting the Lakes and the St.-Law- 1
renoe will enable ships to sail direct- -ly
between Liverpool and the head ot .
Lake Superior, the eastern terminus
of the Northern Pacific Rairoad.
The sailing distance to' Buffalo and
the St. Lawrence is substantially the;
same- from Duluth as from Chicago, ,.
the actual difl'erenee in distance be
ing less than 30 miles. . ;
-At St. Paul and Minneapolis the -Northern
Pacific Railroad - system
connects with the navigation of the
Mississipl River, with the various
lines of railroad extending through -Chicago
to the Atlantic coast, and
with the general railroad svstem of
the United States. At the Sault Ste
Marie, on the completion of projected
lines eastward along the south shore
of Lake Superior, the road will unite :,
with the Canadian system of railways,
thus forming a short all-rail route
from Montreal, Portland and Boston
to the Pacific Ocean.
At St. Vincent, on the northern
boundary of Minnesota, the Northern- .
Pacific Railroad will connect (ovor
the Su Paul & Pacific) with the Cana
dian Pacific Road, which Is proposed
to be constructed under the auspice
of the- Dominion Govern meat, and
the general route of which., lit some
250 miles north of .the line of the
Northern Pacific Road. J This - con-
nection will give!the Canadian- Pa
cific direct rail transportation . for ,.
passengers, freight anaeoatauuctiou
material to and from Lake Superior; -
and Immediate access to the railroad
systems of the United States . and
Canada. , - - r- , --, '

which intersect the routed of the

lines of road, several cf which are al--" -ready
projected, wIlL doubtless? also

contiguous country , require. . .
' -Ia brief, it may be said that ill '
Northera Pacific Railroad system, be
sides being entire and practically in- '
dependent in Itself, will, from -the
day of its completion, enjoy such fa--vorable
connection wi&i- tasv line of
water and land transit at both termi- .

as to make- it a necessity to

A TALK WITH BARNUM'S CANNIBALS.
Kate Field in th New York Trtbnjae.. ; . .-, .
I was exceedingly thrilled by the
appearance of the two young gentle- .
men from the Cannibal Island, who
are beautifully embossed . in green
and red,. and compassionated them
for the sacrifices they , make In put
ting on blankets and civlli zarion, - Is
it right to deprive them of their daily
bread I - mean - their tJaily- baby f -Think
wh at self-restrain I they must
exercise while gaaing upon the tooth- ,
some ioiante that congregate at the.,
eireua, and, like cherubim and sera
phim continually do cry. That they do " '
fase and smack tneiroverhanging lips '
know, because, after going through
their J cannibalistic dance, they- eaa
behind me and howled in a subdue-! .
manner. : Tbe North American .In
dian who occupied au adjoining seat
favored me with a translation of tbeir
charming conversation, by which I
learned many imporant facts concern- -ing
man as an arttde-wf tet. It ap -pears
that- babies, iaiter all; do not
make the daintiest morsels.. Tender

tars, tbey have not the rich flavor of

reasonable Veal is tender, but an
It be favorably compared with beef?
The cases are parallel. - The em bossed
young meu consider babies excellent
f-ir entrees, but for roasta - there Is
nothing like plump maidans in their
teens. Men of twenty are. not bad
eating. When older they are invar;-
bly boiled. Commenting upon the .
audience, the en ties did not consider
it appetizing, and, strange asv it msy
appear, I felt somewhat hurt by the
remark, for who is not vain enough - -to
wish to look good enough to eat?
Fancy being; snfpwrekeed - off the
Fejee Islands, and discarded by canni
bals as a tough, subject, while your...
eom pan ions are literally killed with
attention I Can you not imagine that
under such circumstances, a peculiar
jealousy ot the superior tenderness of
your friends would be a thorn in the
flesh, rendering existence a temporary
burden? If we lived among- people
who adored squinting, should we not
all take to it, aud cherish it as the ap
ple of our eye? And If we fell among
anthropophagi, would not ear love or
approbation make u long to be as.
succulent as young pigs ? What glory .
to eecspe- from the jaws ol! death, if
the jaws-repudiate us? Sa long, as:
