Oke of the best things that has appeared lately from the pen of Walt Mason is a poem on Spring, after the style of Walt Whitman. When Walter Whitman reads it, he will be glad that a young western ginius has relieved him of the job. The State Journal has issued a complete edition of the session laws of Nebraska, including acts of the territorial legislature and the acts preparatory to the admission of the state.

There were about six hundred representative Republican's from all parts of the state &t the meeting of Republican clubs in Omaha last week. There is a harmony of views that never apjeared before. Fac tions in the party are a thing of the past, there being a common feeling that we must lay aside petty dif ferences and down the enemy, when there will be time enough to settle family quarrels. The same feeling characterizes the party throughout the nation, an indication that vic tory will surely perch on our banners. The people -at Haskell & Williams' horse ranch on the Dismal have had con siderable work this winter running down wild horses. Most people have an idea this is SDort. but it is work, the hardest kind of work. The horses roam on the prairi6 in small bands, each stallion hav ing his family. The first business is to L shoot these scrub stallions, when the mares ana coits or me iamuy win join another band. This is repeated until the horses are gathered into a good sized bunch, the object being to chase as many down at once as possible. Then the work begins. One or two horsemen take after the bunch and chase them as rapidly as possible for ten or fifteen miles, when a relief, who has been stationed at some point where the herd is expected to pass, falls in and keeps the horses in rapid motion until another relief takes his place. This is kept up night and day usually for five days before the horses are tired out and will permit themselves to be corralled. When once in the cor- rail they are fed and properly cared for, when they can be roped at the leisure of the ranchmen. This long race generally breaks the old horses all up, they sel dom being fit for mucb afterwards, but after a few days the young ones appear to be none the worse for their long jaunt, At the head- of our editorial columns will be found the call for the Republican State convention to meet in Omaha May 15th. The Tribune's space is too limited to give the full apportionment, and only the counties in our immediate vicin ity are given. On the basis adopted there are nearly 700 delegates. Douglas has 37, the largest from any one county; Lancaster follows with 25, Gage 19, Custer 17, Adams, Buffalo, and Holt 14 each, with the balance running from 13 down to 1. Mb. Blair's bill giving prefer ence to Confederate soldiers for civil appointments under the government, if men who were disloyal during the rebellion are to be appointed to of fice, is in our opinion a good meas ure, notwithstanding the disapprov al it received at the hands of north ern senators. We have not seen the debate, but several republican papers characterize the scheme as a silly proposition that will never be heard of again, at the, same time giving no reason .for their conclu sions. We know from experience that the confederate brigadiers and colonels without number have been rewarded by appointment and elec tion to office; and what is still better entitled to this than the Platte, and if Kearney does not se cure it we would prefer seeing it go there.

As the time approaches when the republicans of this district will be called upon to select a candidate to represent them in congress for the next term, it behooves us to look carefully to the merits and demerits of probable aspirants to the office. For two terms we have had the pleasure of noting from time to time the valuable services rendered by the present imcumbent. It may be that some ambitious fellow would like to take Mr. Dorsey's place and give that gentleman a rest, and while it might gratify some fellow, object and prayer of which is. to foreclose it would not be a desirable thing for a certain mortcaee executed by you to the this district.
