Ve are indebted to .C. R. Schallei1,
Esq'.V'of the European '''Immigration
Agency, in this city for' the following
memoranda relative to a recent jour
ney made by himself, Governor Butler
and a number of other gentlemen, to
jeuerson, Aaama, iriay. JMJCKies auu
Webster counties, with a view of se
lecting a tract of country adapted for
tioiony to be roundea under the direc
tion of the European Immigration
Association. The following are the
to am es of the gentlemen - comprising
me party: iovernor David Jiutler;
General j; R. Patrick : Capt. Brown :
Col.' Alexander ; Lieutenants Alexan
der, Butler and C. R. Schaler, Esq.
With them were a number of pioneers
wno aesirea to spy out the land, and
also a number of persons who wished
to engage in tne pleasures of the buf
falo hunt, which the party had prom
ised 'themselves should form the re
creative portion oftheir labors. They
left Lincoln on the 10th inst. Their
route lay along the Big Blue to its
Dead-waters, and then went across.
- Upon their arrival at Kiawa, they
discovered a settlement of eight men,
wno nad been living in that neighbor
hood for 'three vearB mst.. Thev! In
formed; MrV Schaller, that last year
they suffered an attack from a band of
hostile '-Indians, who -endeavored to
attempt Jto stampede- their stock.
After a desperate resistance the red
devils weredriven away. The region
roundabout this little settlement,1 as
far as Liberty Farm, has been devas
tated and laid bare of all vegetation by
the savages. ' Many settlers who had
inhabited this country had been mur
dered.' and the many graves which
Governor's party passed ontheirroute
served as a warning monument for
those who vould attempt to introduce
the arts of civilization with the far
west.- J';; : ;; "
' Near the Big Sandy they tested the
soil with spades, and instead of find-
jngsand which had been least to ex
pect, discovered it to be fine blue marl
of rich black loom, which extended
clear across thecountry to the extreme
western boundary of ebster county.

Struggles and Triumphs,
Forty Years' Recollections of P. T.
Barnum. Written by himself. Il
lustrated; 784 pp. liartford, Conn.,
J. B. Burr & Co. 1SG9.
From the well-known publishing
house of J. B. Burr & Co. of Hartford,
Conrt., comes the above entitled work,
fresh, piquant, and full of interest.
'The Great Showman" having retired
to private life in the shades of his
cherished "Waldemere," (a picture of
which accompauies his book,) has
been induced to give the public his
"experience" during forty active
years, in a large volume of 800 pages,
adorned with over thirty excellent
engravings. -His public career of over
''forty busy years" has been most
eventful, and is recited to us herein
in spirited narrative, beguiling the
reader irresistably on to the end as
surely as he opens the book. . The
work is not only exceedingly instruc
tive inthatinterestingstudy, "human
nature," but abounds with humorous
anecdotes well told. Whoever likes
fun mingled with good sense, or would
learn "men and things," thoroughly,
and "how to get along in the world,"
and "make money," will be delighted
with Barnum'a "Struggles and Tri
umphs." The book contains his celebrated
lecture on "The Art of Money-Getting,"
which excited so much interest
and comment in England and this
country, a few years ago, and which
is worth in itself many times the cost
of the book. Asa traveler Barnum
exhibits as much genius as in any oth
er character, and it is highly amusing
to follow him on his journeys. The
typography of the book is excellent,
of clear, bold type, easily red, and
does credit to the publishers.
"Struggles and Triumphs" is a
peculiar book In every way, and is
one of those works fortunately adapt
ed for domestic reading, to be taken
up, if one likes, "every now and then"
and, opened -at -any page, furnishing
cheerful reading for the passing hour.
However,' whoever takes it up will be
apt to be lured on to the end before he
stops, so full of interest is it.
W e give our readers an extract from
the book: "
The managers of railroads running
west irom Chicago pretty rigidly en
force a rule excluding from certain re
served cars all gentlemen traveling
without ladies. As I do not smoke, I
avoid the smoking cars; and as the
ladies' car was sometimes more select
and alwaj's more comfortable than
other cars. I tried various expedients
to smuggle myself in. ; If I saw a
lady about to enter 'the car alone, I
followed closely, hoping thus to elude
the vigilance of the brakeman, who
generally acted as door-keeper. But
the car Cerberus is pretty well up to
alliSUCh dodges, and 1 did not alwa's
succeed. , On one occasion, seeing a
young couple, evidently just married,
and starting on a bridal tour, about to
enter the car, I followed closely, but
was stopped by the door-keeper, who
"How many gentlemen are with
I have always noticed that young
newly-married people are very fond
of saying "my husband" and "my
wife;" they are new terms which
sound pleasantly to the ears of those
who utter them; so in answer to the
peremptory inquiry of the door-keep
er, the bridegroom promptly respon
"I am this lady's husband."
"And I guess you can see by the
resemblance between the lady and
myself," said I to Cerberus', "that I
am her father."
The astonished husband and the
blushing bride were too much "taken
aback" to deny their newly-discovered
parent, but the brakeman said, as
he permitted tne young couple to pass
into the car : .
"We can't pass all creation with
"I hope you will not deprive me of
the company of my child during the
little time we can remain together,"
I said with a demure countenance,
The brakeman evidently sympathized
with the fond "parient" whose feel
4ngs were sufficiently lacerated at
losing his daughter through ner rind
ing a husband, and I was permitted to
pass. I immediately apologized to
the young bride and her husb&nd,
and told them who I was, and my
reasons for the assumed paternity,
and they enjoyed the joke so heartily
that they called me "father" during
our entire journey together, indeed,
the husband privately and slyly hint
ed to me that the first boy should be
christened "P. T." My friend the
Rev. Dr. Chapin, Jby the by an invet
erate punster, i3 never tired of ring
ing the changes on the names in my
family; he says that my wife and I
are , the most sympathetic couple he
ever saw, since she is "Charity" and
I am "Pity" (P. T.) On one occasion
at my house in New York, he called
my attention to the monogram, P. T.
B., on the door and said, "I did it."
"Did what," I asked : "Why that,"
replied the doctor, "P. T: B., Pull
The Bell, of course," thus literally
ringing a new change on my Initials.
At another time during my western
lecturing trip, I was following closely
in the wake of a lady who was enter
ing the favorite ear, when the
brakeman exclaimed : '
"You can't go in there, sir!"
"I rather guess I can go in with a
lady " said I, pointing to the one who
had just entered. - ' .
"Not with : that lady, old leuow ;
for I happen to know her, and that is
more than you do; we are up to all
these travelers' tricks out here; it's
no go." ' , . '
1 saw indeed tnac it was "no go,"
and that I must try something else;
Look here, my dear fellow," said 1,
"1 1 am traveling every day on tlie
railroads, on a lecturing tour through
the West, and I really hope yon will
permit me to take a seat in the lames'
car. . am Jiamum, me lusuem
man from New York."
Looking sharply at me for an in
stant, the altogether too wide-awake
brakeman exclaimed: "Not "by a
d n sight you ain't! 'I '-'know Bar
num!" I could not help laughing; and
pulling several old letters from my
pocket, and showing him the direct
ions on the envelopes, I replied :
"W ell, you may know him, but the
'old fellow' has changed in his ap
pearance, perhaps. You see by these
letters that I am the 'crittur.' "
The brakeman looked astonished.
but finally said : "Well, that is a fact
sure enough. I know you when I
come to look again, but really I did
not believe you at first. You see we
have all sort3 of tricks slaved cn U3.
and we learn to doubt everybody.
iuu are very welcome logo in, .Mr.
Barnum; and I am glad to see von."
and as thi3 conversation was heard
throughout the car. "Barnum. the
showman, was the subject of general
observation and remark.

ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS.
We all depend, more or less, upon
the public for our support. We all
trade with the public, lawyers, doc
tors, shoemakers, artists, blacksmiths,
showmen, oporasingers, railroad pres
idents, and college professors. Those
who deal with the public must be
careful that their goods are valuable ;
that they are genuine, and will give
satisfaction. When you get an article
which you know is going to please
your customers, and that when they
have tried it, they will feel they have
got their money's worth, then let the
fact be known that you have got it.
Be careful to advertise it in some
shape or other, because it is evident
that if a man has ever so good an ar
ticle for sale, and nobody knows it,
it will bring him no return. In a
country like this, where uearly every
body reads, and where newspapers
are issued and circulated in editions
of five thousand to two hundred thou
sand, it would be very unwise if this
channel was not taken advantage of
to reach the public in advertising. A
newspaper goes into the family and is
read by wife and children, as well as
the head of the house; hence hun
dreds and thousands of people may
read your advertisement, while you
are attending your routine business.
Many, perhaps, read it while you are
asleep. The whole philosophy of life
is, first "sow," then "reap." That is
the way the farmer, does; he plants
his potatoes and com, and sows his
grain, and then goes about something
else, and the time comes when he
reaps. But he never reaps first and
sows afterwaro's. Thi3 principle ap
plies to all kinds of business, and to
nothing more eminently than to ad
vertise. If a man has a genuine ar
ticle, there is no way in which he can
reap more advantageously than by
"sowing" to the public in this way.
He must, of course, have a really good
article, and one which will please his
customers; anything spurious will
not succeed permanently, because the
public is wiser than many imagine.
Men and women are selfish, and we
all prefer purchasing where we can
get the most for our money ; and we
try to find out where we can most
surely do so.
You may advertise aspurious article,
and induce many people to call and
buy it once, but they will denounce
you as an impostor and swindler, and
your business will gradually die out,
and leave you poor. This is right.
Few people can safely depend upon
chance custom. You all need to have
your customers return .and, purchase
again. A' man said to me, "I have
tried advertising, and did not succeed ;
yet I have a good article."
I replied, "My friend, there may. be
exceptions to a general rule. But how
do you advertise T , .
"I put it in a weekly newspaper
three times, and paid a dollar and a
half for it."
I replied : "Sir, advertising is like
learning 'a little is a c dangerous
thing."' , ; . , ; . ; . ,
A French writer says that "The
reader of a newspaper does not see the
first insertion ot an ordinary adver
tisement; the second insertion the
sees, but does not read ; the third In
sertion he reads; the fourth inser
tion, he looks at the price; the fifth
insertion, he speaks of it to his wife;
the sixth insertion, he Is ready to pur
chase, and the seventh insertion, he
purchases.". Your object in adver
tising is to make the public under
stand what you have got to sell, and
if you have not the pluck to keep ad
vertising, until you have imparted
that information, all the money you
have spent is lost. You are like the
fellow whoytold the gentleman If he
would give him ten cents it would
save him a dollar. "How can I help
you with so small a sum ?" asked the
gentleman In surprise. "I started out
this morning (hiccupped the fe.Iow)
with the 'full determination to get
drunk, and I have sjient my only dol
lar to accomplish the object, and it
has not quite done it. . Ten cents
worth more of whiskey would ju3t do
it, and in this manner I should save
the dollar already expended."
So a man who advertises at all must
keep it up until the public know who
and what he is, and what his business
is,. or else the money Invested in ad
vertising is lost.
" Some men have a peculiar genius
for writing a striking advertisement.
one that will arrest the attention of
the reader at first sight. This tact, of
course, gives the ndvertiser a great
advantage. Sometimes a man makes
himself popular by an uuique sign or
a curious display in his window. Re
cently I observed a swing sign ex
tending over the sidewalk in front of
a store, on which was the inscription,
in plain letters, , -
"DON'T READ THE OTHER SIDE." '
Of course I did, and so did every
body, else, and I learned that the man
had made an independence by first
attracting the public to his business
in that way and then using I113 cus
tomers well afterwards.' ' ' .' : '
