enlist in an enterprise of this kind,
and will publish it when complete. 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,

companies. The Chronicle says that
they paid $40,000 to get the Jt. 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.

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

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

and the Little Blue couutry, and
when we know just what is needed to
!Tord this, will work for its accomplishment.

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,

Editor .Advertiser : Sir, Will you
allow me the privilege of asking a few
questions through your widely circu
lated paper?
1st. Are the voters of the third
District, for County Commissioner
entitled to their candidate? or does
the outside voters of the county over
rule our preferences ?
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. We
would like to be putight in this ques
tion. 2d. How are the delegates appoint
ed? From the last Election Returns.
Glen Rock has too few, or Brownville
to many which is it?
At your.earliest leisure please Jo re-
ply.
Respectfully Yours,

OOO ! These figures may seem start

this result, while many of our neigh

Simply this: We have a Railroad!
If the building of a north and south
line of Xlailroad along the western
border of our couuty increases the
value of our property twenty-live per
cent, in twelve months, what will be
the increase in our taxable wealth

seventy-five per cent. There is no
