We are glad to receive THE CONSER
VATIVE , J. Sterling Morton's new paper ,
published nt Nebraska Gil } ' . Mr. Mor
ton is one of the best writers in Ne
braska or any other state. He is a man
of force , with a broad and liberal educa
tion and wide experience , and his per
sonality dominates everything that he
writes and makes it readable and in
structive. THE CONSERVATIVE stands
for all that its editor believes for the
best , interests of the people of the West ,
and it will work for what it believes
with no thought of yielding. In many
things its teachings are , wo believe ,
along correct lines , and it will be wel
comed and read with interest by all who
admire good literature , whether they
sanction its utterances or not. Seward
There comes to our table this week
Nos. 1 and 2 , Vol. 1 , of THE CONSERVA
TIVE , a weekly newspaper. It is pub
lished at Nebraska City , and J. Sterling
Morton is the editor. The editorial
announcement is of wider range and
more complete than a party platform.
An inspection of its pages shows that it
is under the management of a man of
large brain who has vast stores of ac
curate information at ready command
and is skillful as a writer. In its treat
ment of subjects it is philosophical and
oratorical and evinces a fondness for
historical data. Its devotion to the
welfare of Nebraska is a most charming
featxire and on the whole it is of a class
of literature of great credit and benefit
to the state. Central City Republican.
J. Sterling Morton's new paper , TUB
CONSERVATIVE , has reached us. TIIE
CONSERVATIVE is all right. It is backed
by brains and capital , and will get there
with both feet. Douglas Enterprise.
NOTES ON Monthly for September
ERATURE. tember is a partic-

THE CONSERVATIVE dissecting table and
opens up remarkably well. It is all in

Mr. A. E. Keet it is rapidly growing in
The Now York Evening Post of a re
cent date contained a speech by Prof
Charles Eliot Norton which all Ameri
cans might read with profit.
The same number contains some re
marks by the Rev. P. S. Moxoin , who
antagonizes Professor Norton as to the
iccessity and propriety of wars and
battlefields amidst the civilization and
Christianity of the XIX century.
The Reverend Moxom with religious
zeal and infinite fervor declares that the
charge of the Second Massachusetts reg-
ment at El Caney was inexpressibly
ovely. Again Mr. Moxom proclaims
lis belief that "God is driving the
chariot. " Evidently Mr. M.OXOIII thinks
; hat righteousness , civilization and
Christianity may be shot into barbarians
or mauled into savages whenever the
meek and lowly followers of Christ

pounding has arrived. Mr. Moxom's
