THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1860. Official Paper of City and County. .The Episcopal Church building In Omaha was burned down last week It was insured for $10,000. Financially SpcaUIngr. The Omaha Herald contains a sug gestive leader on the financial prospect in which we find many complaints because the National Debt is being .re duced, and finding in this the reason why the money market Is stringent wheat and corn of but little value, ant business generally In a languishing state "all because Grant and Bout well must tax down the public debt.' One short year ago, with Andy John sou at the head of the nation, the pub lie debt hist about held its own. in The friends of the Q., M. & P.

We doubt not Cougrees will deem it wise and proper to further reduce the tax on many articles, . and perhaps, send others to the free list.

We have called the attention of our of grain is low and business is -dull. We are apt to shift the results of our own follies upon the controling pow ers; rather than by correcting our own course, confess them. We conjecture that the aim of the Herald was not so much to correct what it claims to be evils, as to appeal to the prejudices of the unthinking against the party in power. m t The Railroad meeting held in this .

If eucli a bank existed in Brownville, it could loan its stockholders its funds when occasion required, saving to ev ery one of them the necessity of keep ing several hundred dollars to mee eastern markets. It was not assembled to hear speak ers from abroad nor those from home, but for actual, straightforward busi ness, having reference to the growth and prosperity of our own city and county. There was but one opinion as to what should be done. . ' The mode and manner of doing it alone received t the attention of the meeting until a late hour, The details were at length satisfac torily settled, and hereafter there will be unanimity of action, all having but one end in view, the early con struction of a road running west from .hrnska Citv appears to be unfor- Brownville via Tecumseh, Beatrice, ith Unllroful across the Little Blue, and from v immergencies, unemployed through out the entire year.

Joseph n Rliiffa Railroad to come within one mile of Nebraska City, and then asks why it is that they did not come nearer than two miles. They cave $150,000 to secure a branch rftAd from the B. & M. Railroad to Nebraska City, and under that con tract they are likely to get ouly two miles from the river to East Nebraska City built. Th branch that they ex pected will be built to Hamburg, con necting with the St. Josepn ana u. Railroad, thence on that road down to a point opposite Rulo. thence up the Nemaha Valley, or from Hamburg North to East Nebraska City and from thence to thu river.' The Chron ide think! that If this is a due com pliance with the terms, it is not with the spirit of the contract. The Trunk Railroad, we are assured by those who are controling its desti nes, Is receiving all the attention which its Importance as a great com peting through line demands. There are many side Issues to settle which thus fur have prevented the com mencing of active work. The cold tumble of a few weeks ago so crippled the contractors that they are now un able to execute the contract made with the company to complete ten miles of the road from Rulo north. In conse quence, they may fail to come within the terms of the State Laud Grant; nevertheless, active work will com mence so soon as the rights of the comnany and the good of the road are properly fixed and determined. The public may rest assured that the com pany are doing all in their power, and much more than they want made known at present, to complete this mu(h needed throughfare toSL Louis. " The people of Jeffereon county are Impatient, as well they may be, for better mail facilities with this sectiou of country. Before the Little Blue was published we knew but little of the wants and necessities of that country watered by the Little Blue and its tributaries. We notice by the advertisement of the Postmaster Gen eral in our columns, that two weekly tnaila are provided for that section and Its Inhabitants, from and after, next July. What they now have to de pend upon we know not, except as may be gathered from an article which we print from the editorial columns of the Blue. Will the Blue state whether they wish a new post route established, or want increased service on some old route. If a new ona, mention the points where Postofficea are needed. We are anxious for bet ter mail facilities between Brownville and the Little Blue couutry, and when we know just what is needed to !Tord this, will work for its accomplishment. thence out to and up the Republican with perhaps a branch to some point on the U. P. R. R. The ropes are being very successful ly and industriously laid which have so far drawn the powerful influence of the Pennsylvania Central from all other lines, and concentrates it on the short line through from Quincy to Brownville and thence west as above indicated. The -county of Adams, in which Quincy is situated, ha3 recently voted $400,000 to draw that Pennsylvania interests Into Quincy. They have so far succeeded as to stop all negotia tions in other directions, and are cer tain to secure the active corporation of that company on our line. Let every man interested in a Rail road from Brownville west, rest as sured that these facts are correct ; that the Q., M. & P. Company are a live company, full of energy and ably officered ; that they arj constantly watching the board, and not only know what the great Railroad Kings want, but have the grit and disposi tion to meet those want3 with as little delay as possible. . The city of Brownville will be call ed upon to vote $100,000 to aid this en terprise at an early day, and we ex pect that she will show her full confi dence in the immediate construction of this great national thoroughfare by a unanimous vote for the proposition. Earnest and energetic work is now what is most ueeded. Railroad meeting. Pursuant to published notice, a large number of the citizens assembled in Mcpherson's Hail, on Fridayveuing, Nov. 12th, 1809, for the purpose of dis cussing our railroad interests and dej vising some plan for aiding the pn gress of the Q.t M. & P. Railroad. The meeting was called to order by Dr. McPherson, Col. R. W. Furnas elected Chairman and J. D. Calhoun appointed Secretary. Mr. J. S. Church, being called for, brielly and lucidly stated the object of the meeting. Dr. McPherson, being next called, gave full expression to his views, urg ing immediate and effectual action Col. Rich gave the opinion that city or precinct bonds could be made avail able. After remarks from other gentle men, Mr. Church offered the follow ing resolutions, urgiug their adoption in a forcible speech : . , ... Resolved. That the citizens, of Brownville in convention assembled, are in favor of authorizing the city of Brownville to subscribe StX),000 to the capital stock of the Q., M. & P. Rail road Company for the purpose of se curing the grading, tying, bridging and ironing of the said Railroad, com mencing at a point opposite the city of Brownville on the riirht bank of the Missouri river in the county , of Atchison, running east in said county to Phelps city, and so far beyond . as the funds arrising from such subscrip tion will be sufficient to complete ready for the rolling stock, provided that. $10,000 of said stock shall be taken by the city without further con dition than that it be taken in lieu pf the stock subscribed by the citizens of Brownville to the capital stock of said company, and that the ballance of said stock, to-wit : $50,000 so soon as four miles of said road in Atchison county so as aforesaid shall have been finished ready for the rolling stock. r , Resolved, That we are in favor of authorizing the city of Brownville to issue its bonus running twenty years. bearing seven percent, intere&t. pay able annually, which said bonds must be taken in full pay for said stock at par value. Resolved, That a committee of three persons be appointed by the chair, charged with the duty of circulating a petition to the Common Council of the city of Brownville, praying said Council to submit at an early day the question to the legal voters of the city of Brownville, the question as to whether the citT shall take said amount of stock of iaid company, and issue its bonds In payment thereof on the foregoing conditions. Judge Morgan moved to amend by ubstituting the word "precinct" for city," and ,i$100,000" for 4,$60,000," n the phrase, "authorizing the city of Brownville to subscribe $(50,000 to the capital stock," etc. He supported his amendment in a speech of consider able length. -..!. Mr. Church opposed that part of the amendment relating to the precinct, as also did Col. Rich. Judge Morgan responded to the two last named gentlemen, and apromls cuous discussion ensued, participated In by Messrs. Lett, Broady, McPher son, Porter, Blackburn, Hewett and others. The amendment was put to -the Judge Hewett moved to amendfJy making the amount $100,000. Auop- ted. . : Dr. Blackburn then offered an amendment to the effect that the sub scription to be valid only in case woTk be actually commenced by the 1st of May next, and completed to Phelps City by the 1st of July next. After considerable discussion the amendment was adopted. The resolutions offered by Mr. Church, amended as above, were then unanimously adopted. It was moved and carried that when thl3 meeting do adjourn, it be to' .2 o'clock P. M., on Tuesday next, to re assemble as a precinct meeting, for further consultation on railroad mat ters. Other important business was trans acted, after which Dr. Presson, of Tecumseh, was called for and address ed the meeting. The chair appointed Messrs. Church, Hewett and Morgan a committee to present the matter to the City Council, as provided in the last resolution. Meeting then adjourned. . R. W. FURNAS, Ch'n. J. D. Calhoun, Sec. Rev. Mr. Lowe, of the Baptist Chu roll In this city, preached in the Presbyterian Church last Sunday evening upon the subject of Spiritual ism." The learned divine's handling of the subject was somewhat peculiar, and if f his premises' and "conclusions are correct, then there is more in the subject of Spiritualism than we had heretofore supposed. The "manifes tations" he dignifies jby the name pf miricles wrought by2 falleni angels. He thinks that these fallen ' angels can . represent the dead in their .char acters and. appearances while in khis world; that. they can control mind matter and the elements, sor far as permitted by the Ruler of the Uni verse ; that all the spiritual phenome na of which we read and hear, Is the work of these fallen angels through mediums on earth. We have never given this subject much thought and no investigation, but supposed that the phenomena might be accounted for upon some as yet unknown prin ciples governing and controling mind and matter, having absolutely no con nection with spirits departed or oth erwise. The future and what is be yond this life is really beyond our knowledge, and we have little or no disposition to seek after such knowl edge, and know not where it may be obtained. We endeavor to so live and act that we shall receive the plan-dit- of an approving conscience, and then trust ourselves in the'.hands of him Who doeth all things well. V, 1 ' ' For tlie Advertiser.

My reasons for asking l this-,, the majority of the voters of the 3rd Com missioner's district, were In favor ot Higglns, and by rignt and justice, he ought to be our County Judge, for we hold that the voters of the 3d District, should have decided this question, independent of outsideinfluence.
