A letter from Congressman Crounse,
addressed to the newspapers of the
State, says Nebraska is without a ca
det in the U. S. Military Academy at
West Point, and advertises for all
young mpn. aspirant to the position,
to meet at Omaha, on the 7th of May,
at 2 p. M., In the High School build

for the appointment. The board of

MURDER AT XEDRASKA CITY.
Last Friday a man was murdered at
Nebraska City. A man by the name
of McWaters in company with a
young man named John Crook, both
drunk, went to the store of Peter
Dold and commenced an affray, dur
ing which a man named Rudolph
Wirz, Dold's clerk, was shot and kill
ed, and Dold and another man slight
ly wounded. The desperadoes made
their escape across the river into Io
wa, but were closely followed by sher
iff Farbar, of Otoe county, and a
stroug posse of men, and captured on
the 14th inst. McWaters is the same
man who about one year ago killed
the postmaster of the town of Wyom
ing, Otoe county, and but recently re
leased from prison through a technic
ality of the law.
Kansas sends a Grander to the Uni
ted States Senate. Nebraska will fol
low suit or trump Omaha Herald.
Then what becomes of the Herald's
argument that the Denmciatic party
must lead the Grangers in Nebraska
and not be led by them. It is utterly
as impossible to send a straight Dem
ocrat to the Senate f mm Nebraska as
it would have been to send one from
Kansas, aud yet the country has se
cured a Senator from Kansas without
a trace of cflrruption-upon him. Tills
is wnndetful indeed, but the Grangers
can porform wonders even in Nebras
It must be pretty thin comfort that
the Herald and the Granger, especial
ly, can draw from the fact that Har
vey ha been elected to the U. S.
Senate. Mr. Harvey is a Granger,
we believe, hut have seen the state
ment denied, and that he was only a
farmer and in sympithy with the
Grange movement. Let this be as it
may, however, he was not the Grange
candidate for Senator, but was the
Republican candidate and elected by
Republicans, because he i, and ever
has been, a true and uncompromising
Republican, and bflipves. as he has
but recently declared, that the Re
publican party is sufficient to bring
about all needful political reforma
tion. "Grangers can perform wonders,
even in Nebraska," &&ys our neighbor
across the street. We hope they will,
in a good sort of way, but one thing
must be understood, viz: that any
wonders of reformation, any great
benefits to the people, will come
through Republican Grangers, acting
in concert with o her Republicans, as
was the case in Kansas, which elected
Mr. Harvey to the Senate. We are
well satisfied by observation and con
versations with our Republican
friends, that, because they have be
come Grangers," or Patrous of Hus
bandry, rather, they are oot a whit
the Jes3 Republicans.
A BILL TO TAX R. R. LANDS.
Senator Hitchcok has introduced a
bill in the Senate providing that all
lands granted to railroad Companies
shall be subject to State aud County
taxation. Congressman Crounse has
also introduced a similar bill in the
House. Mr. Hitchcock's bill gives to
the States and counties the right to
tax any lands that have been earned
by the companies by the construction
of these roads, whether they have se
cured the patents for the lands from
government or not. If the patents
have not been issued, then, from the
proceeds of any land sold for taxes
there shall first be deducted the
amount due the United States Gov
ernment for making surveys, ect. , and
the patents shall be issued to the rail
road company, the purchaser acquir
ing a valid title as agent for the gov
ernment, and a title as agent of the
railroad company, such ns a tax sale of
any real estate could give him. This
hill is designed to reined' an evil that
takes a different form in different
States through which land grants to
railroads extend. In Nebraska the
Union Pacific aud the Burlington aud
Mi-si.uri roads are entitled to some of
the best laud-i in the State, and the
sections which they will ultimately
own have already been surveyed and
selected, but there is as yet little mar
ket for these lands, and as by the act
of July 23th, 1864, it is provided that
the cost of surveying, seleoing and
conveying the granted landd shall
be paid by the companies before pat
ents shall issue, the companies neglect
to pay the fees on the lands that are
sold and obtain at present no patents,
and escape taxation. The people of
Nebraska think this unfair, and Mr.
Hitchcock's bill is intended to correct
Iu some other States the railroad
companies neglect to obtain their pat
ents, even where they sell the land to
spttlers ; but instead of a deed, execute
a bond to the purchser to give him a
full title at some future time. In this
way the purchasers of the railroad
lands escape taxation for a term of

aud found her next day in a well,
dead. Good for adverti.-iinr had on
the Journal, however. Plattsmouth
That there is virtue in printers' ink
evidences accumulate. The above is
a remarkable instance aud worth the
attention of all. for even you our dear
reader, are liable to lose your cat at
any time, aud when you least expect
it. when, if you do. just call around
and you will have no trouble in find
ing the lost feline Whether dead or
alive, in a Well or on a stnble, up a
Cottonwood tree or at the bottom of
the Missouri river, printers ink will
fetch it. And, by the way, we wish
to record the interesting fact that in
discoveiiugH dog this s-tme kind of
ink appears to be about n effective it
when applied to a cat; and from our
observation whith has been suffici
ently miscellaneous to entitle our
opinion to profound respect, it does
not make much difference what kind
ofadojjyou want to hunt, the effect
is much the same. If there is any
difference a middling sized yaller dog
stands the bestchance of being found,
iu these parts where that color Is
largely iu the majority. Then comes
the little snarly half3Ureed ratters and
variegated dogs. But we will cite a
case or two iu point, of recent occur
rence. Mr. Pascoe. of our city, losing
a dog week before last lost no time in
having him "put in the paper." when
he was so.m foui.d, but being a young
dog und not much acquainted with
the ways of the world, never having
beeu shot before, "the dog was dead."
We understand the owner in no wi-c
blames the paper for the sad occur
rence. Again, Mr. Wibley, a few days
afterwards, lost his purp ami did not
know where to find him. He at once
determined to advertise him, when
it may be strange, but we vouch it is
nevertheless true even before the
paper was out he found his dog. How
that dog found out he was about to be
inserted in a newspaper, we are at a
loss to know. But Jbeiug a dog of con
siderable age,aud experience maybe
a satisfactory reason to people of a re
flective turn, of mind. A prompt and
energetic appeal to printers ink has
brought home many a wanderer.

Editor Nebraska Advertiser.
Dear Sir: I can't" restrain a de
sire to-bring before the readers of the
ADVWtTlSEU a subject that at least Is
pertinent to our lalo organization,
"the Grange." It seems, ever since
there has beeu an understanding that
this movement has obtained a foot
hold in the county, It hnx become the
signal for nil classes of played out
politicians to take the initial steps to
ride Into office. It has become their
sole duty, "apparently," to discrie
corporations and monopolies. Each
and every one of those self-constituted
philanthropists has an antidote
ready on all occasions to remedy this
fearful state of nffairs, wherever they
find a meeting of farmers, and have
never failed to present It for consider
ation with their fac simile thereon,
"for future reference."
We, as Grangers, deny the fact that
politics were ever Intended to become
a feature in this organization, but
that It has tended in that direction is
a question that no one at this time
will dispute. It is not expected when
a farmer attachas himself to the
Grange he loses all interest i,n the re
lation that exist between himself and
State. But when associations are
formed with men at their boad as
their officers, who are known politi
cians and have never missed nn op
portunity to claim an office, then it
certainly in patent to the most super
ficial obserrer, the tendency our
movement has to become a vehicle on
which defunct politicians ma' ride
into office. It reflect. very little cred
it upon the farmer to allow it to he
blazoned forth to the world, that this
element it su essential feature of our
organization, lur it justlnV the asser
tion, on the part of outsiders, that we
as a cUs lack the ability to reform
the abuses that we are laboring under
or, at least, we are not able to inau
gurate suck measures as will be like
ly to secure that end. It is time that
farmers consider what is for their in
terest in tliis matter.
The larger portion of the bonded
indebtedness of this State has been
effected by men of this stripe, and if
this i one of the features we are aim
ing to correct it becomes our duty to
discriminate between this class of peo
ple and the farmer who has the inter
est of the movement at heart.
We have complained of the incon
sistency of railroads and other public
improvements, but I ask iu the name
of humanity where has this vice crop
ed out to a greater extent than in our
own midsr ? where defunct party pa
pers have become champions of the
Grange in our State.
I thluk the farmers will find food
for thought on this subject, and on
proper reflection it will be found that
our interests can be advanced without
the aid of our stump celebritesl

DECIiARATIOS OF PRINCIPLES
OBJKC'f OV Tf IJS'ASSOCIATION."
At the city oi I'ltsnurgnurg. v.a.. nn
the 5th inst., a so called "National
Reform Convention." really a con
clave of as narrow brained sectarian
bigots ns ever cursed any country
was In fcessinn, when the committee'
ou declaration of "principle presented'
the following pointa: - -
1. The country and institution
were founded y Christians and
nliould remain Christian.
2. Whether acknowledged or not.
fesus Chrjst is ruler of the nations of
the woTld. and Uon'a moral law is me
3. The Constitution fixes the mor
al status of the people, and. if the
Constitution be Christian, the people
will be Christian.
4. The object of the association Is
the perpetuation of the Christian Sab
bath; to maintain the Bible in the
public schools ; to establish proper re
gard for the sanctity of the marriage
relation, and the suppression of in
temperance. The report was unanimously adopt
ed. It was declared that the conven
a political one, assembled to demand
that politics should he Christianized,"
and that that part of the old constitu
tion which guaranties religious free
dom shall be expunged, and lie sub
stituted by a clause making religion a
tent of citizenship.
Petitions to Congress on behalf of
the amendment were laid before the
convention, which summed up 56.000
names. These petitions are to be re
tained in the possession of the officers
until the number of names secured
reach 2.000.000 or 3.000.000.
That the tenets of these bigots who
would restrict the liberties of the peo
ple and bridle the commences -of the
American people, will ever obtain,
we have very little fear ; and the only
efiect which audi efforts will have,
will be to effectually separate people
who cannot endorse them, wide from
what they deem Christianity, and in
augurate the bitterest-of feuds between
them. Our country is now all that
ought to be desired so far as religious
and political liberty is concerned, be
cause man may worship God and
Christ, or not, according to the dic
tates of his own conscience. Let men
have full liberty in everj'thing, say
we, provided he infringes not on the
rights of his fellow-man,

On the 3rd Inst., nt twelve o'clock
P. it., Harry Keath. youngest son of
W. r. aud A. M. Moore, aged three
m-iuths and twenty-three days.
These few words tell to the world
that another "little darling" h.is
yielded up the innocent life mo lately
given ; that another mother's heart is
bowed to the dust 'neath its burden of
sorrow. The dear little babe t:.at on
ly a few shoit hours since rested up
on her bosom, lias gone home to dwell
with the angels. Dear little Harry,
never more will those faithful arms
guard your tiny form from harm or
danger, for our "meek-eyed darling"
ha found a safer renting place upon
tho bosom of one Who has said, "Suf
fer little childreu to come unto me
and forbid them not, for of uuch is
the kingdom of Heaven." What a
new meaning do those words convey
to the minds of these grief strieken
parents ; many times have they pe
rused those Hflf.same lines, but never
was their meaning appreciated until
while consigning the beloved waxen
form to irs last resting place, seeming
ly a voice from the clouds whispered
consolation t- their bleeding heart-:
"Suffer little children to come unto
me. and forbid them not." Never lie
fore have they realized what it is to
say: "Thy will and not mine be
dnie " One assurance sweeter than
all else remains to them, that ere
many snows shall have fallen upon
that tin 7 grave, they will go to their
darling in a bright and better world,
where pain and sorrow, sin aud death
sIihII know us no more.
Since his birtti little Harry was but
a drooping, delicate flower; a pure be
ing who seemed more fit to dwell
with angels than men ; yet never wa
light too bright for those dark wistful
eyes, which seemed ever asking for
something beyond earthly love, or
earthly comforts. Just before the last
faltering breath passed those sweet
lips his eyes were turned full upon
the lamp, then the snowy lids droop
ed slowly, and the Angel of Death
bore our darling's spirit safe to the
arms of Jt.us. His last gaze upon
earth was centered upon the light, a
silent token admonishing ua to go on
ward aud upward, and ever love (as
little Harry did) the light.

Oregon farmer. I am worry, " was
the reply; "we had counted on
yon." "No. I can't jine." miid the
farmer; "because they've let the
women in, and they'll work it round
8O8H to iret to vnte d'rec'ly, .and" I
won't have nuthin' to do with it.
The women is getlln' above their priv
ileges, any way. They don't stay at

St. Louis. Feb. 11 The National
tiraujie to-day nfter traiiMictinjc Some
minor tnirtiuess received a report ot
the committee on resolution!, preaent
hI by Waidlnw, of Florida, nnd adopt
ed it unituimounly. mh follow :
Profoundly impressed with the
truth that the iiHtiounl grange, of the
United State mIiouM defiutely pro
claim its mild genial objects, we here
by uimtiiiiiouxly make a declaration
of purposes of the patrons of huabund-
Firnt. Unlteri o the stronir and
faithful tiesnf aKrielilture, we mutual
ly resolve to lalmr for the t(ood of our
order, our country and mankind.
Second. We heartily endorse the
motto. in endeutial" unity, in noii
e.iwetiiial liberty, in ail things char
ity." Third. We shall endeavor to ad
vance oureaurebv laboring to accom
plish the following objects: To de
velop a ietter and higher manhood
and womanhood among ourelve; to
enhance the coniform and attraction
of our home, and aluo atrengtheii
our attachments to our pursuit; to
toter mutual understanding and co
operation; to maintain inviolate our
laWH, und to emulate Hch other in
labor; to hapten the good time coin
ing; to reduce our expenses both in
dividual and corporate; to produee
more and buy lea-, in order to make
our farina self sustaining; to di verify
our oropg, and crop no more than we
can cultivate; to condense the weight
of our exports, nelling le.s in bu-diel
and more on hoof aud in fleece ; to
systematize our work, and calculate
intelligently on probabilities; to dis
countenance tiie credit pystem, the
mortgage system, the fashion system,
and every other ayntem tending to
prodignlity and bankruptcy. We
propose meeting together talking to
gether, working together, buying to
gether, selling together, and in gen
eral acting together, for our mutual
protection and advancement, as oc
casion may require. We shall avoid
litigation as much as poihle by arbi
tration in the grange. We shall con
stantly strive to xeeure entire hnr
mouv and good will among ourselves
and to makeourorder perpetual. We
shall earnestly endeavor to suppress
pergonal local, spctional and national
prejudice, all unhealthy rivalry, and
nil selfish ambition. Faithful adher
ence to these principles will insure
our mental, moral, social aud material
ad van cement.
Fourth. For our business interests
we desire to tiring the producers and
consumers, fanners and manufactur
ers, into the most direct and friendly
relations possible ; hence we must dis
pense with the surplus of middlemen,
not that we are unfriendly to them
hut-we don't need them; their sur
plus and their exactions diminish our
profit. We wage no aggressive war
fare against any other interests what
ever ; on the contrary, all our acts
and all our efforts, so far as huines i
concerned, are not only for the bene
fit of the producer and consumer, hut
also for all other interests and tend
to bring thep two parties Into speedy
and economical contact; hence we
hold that transportation companies of
eveiy kind are necessary to our suc
cess, that their interestsareintimntelv
netted with our interests and a
faarmontous action is mutually advan-
tirotiuctloua oiv ciuriHiiiry. e
adopt It as our fiseti purim-e to open
out the channels in nature b great ar
teries. that life blood ot comuivrce
may flow freely. We are nut enemies
of railroads, navigable aud irrigating j
canals, nor of any corporation that
will advance our industrial interests, I
nor of any laboring clast-es, Jn out
noble order there is no coniiuuuism-

corporation or enterpribeus tends to i
oppress the people aud rob them of
their just profits. We are not enemies
to capital, but we oppose tyranny und
monopolies. We long to see the an
tagonism between capital and labor
removed by common consent, b3 en
lightened statesmanship worthy of
the nineteenth century. We are op
posed to excessive salaries, high rates
of interest, and an exorbitant per
cent, of profits in trade. They great
ly increase our burdens and do not
bear a proper proportion to the profits
of producers. We desire only self
protection, and the protection of every
true Interest of our land, by legitimate
transactions, legitimate trade, aud le
gitimate profits. We shall advance
the cause of education amongourselves
and fur our children by all just means
within our power. We advocate
for our agricultural and industrial col
leges, that practical agricultural, do
mestic serivice and all the arts which
adorn th home to batallght IU their
courses of study.
Fifth. We emphatically and sin
cerely assert the oft repeated truth
taught in our organic law, that the
grange, national, stateor subordinate,
is not apolitical or party organization.
No grange, if true to its obligation can
discuss political or religious questions,
nor call political conventions, nor
nominate candidates, nor even discus
their merits iu their meetings "Yet
the principles we teach underlie all
true politics ami all tru- stateMiian
hhip. and if properly carried out will
tend to purify the whole political at
mosphere of our country, for we seek
the greatest good to the greatest num
ber ; but we must always bpur it iu
mind that no one by becoming a
grange member gives up that inalien
able right and duty whieh belongs to
every American citizen to take a pro
per interest in the politics of his conn
try. On the contrary. It Is right for
every member to do all in his power
legitimately to influence for good the
action of any political party to which
he belongs." It Is his duty to do all
he can in his own party to pnt down
bribery, corruption and triekery ; to
see that none but competent, faithful
and honest men, who will unflinch
ingly stand by our industrial inter
ests, are nominated for all positions of
trust, and to have carried out the
principle which should always char
acterize every grange member that of
fice should seek the man aud not
man the office. We acknowledge the
broad principle that difference of
opinion is no crime, and bold that
progress toward truth is made by dif
ference of opinion, while the fault
lies in bitterness of controversy. We
desire a proper equality, equality and
fairness, protection for the weak and
restraint on the strong; in short
jutly distributed burdens and jutlv
distributed powers. These are Amer
ican independence, aud to advocate
the contrary is unworthy of the sons
and daughters of an American repub
lic. We ciierish the belief that sec
tionalism is ami of right should be
dead and buried with the past. Our
work is for the present and the future
in our agricultural brotherhood and
purposes. e shall recognize no
south, no north, no east, no west,
rt is reserved by every patron ns his
right us a free man to affiliate with
any party that will best carry out bis
Sixth. Ours being peculiarly n farm
er's institution we cannot admit all to
our ranks. Many are excluded by
the nature of our organization, not
lecause they are professional men, or
artisans, or laborers, but because they
have not a sufficient direct interest in
tilling or pasturing the soil, or may
have some interests in conflict with
our nurnoses. but we apne.I to all
good citizens for their cordial co-operation
in our efforts toward reform
that we may eventually remove from
our midst the last vestige of tyranny
and corruption. We hail tho general
desire for fraternal harmony, equita
ble compromise antl earnest co-opera
lion m an omen of our future success.
Seventh, It shall be an abiding
principle with us to relieveany of our
oppressed and suffering brotherhood
bv any means nt our command.
Lat but not Ient, we proclaim It
among our purposes to inculcate a
proper appreciation of the abilities
nnd sphere of woman a indicated by
admitting her to membership and po
sition in stir order. Impairing con
tinual assistance of our Divine Master
to guide us in our work, we lur
pledge ourselves to faithfully aud bar
mnu!only labor, for all fu'ure time,
to return by our united efforts to Hip
wl-dom. justice, fraternity and purity
of our forefathers. A memorial to the
patrons iu the cotton States was alo
adopted. It Is a strong argument iu
favor of mixed husbandry in the
Southern States, instead of expend
ing all tlu energies of the people in
tha'seetion In raising a single staple
and gives several strong reasons why o:?E noon wkst of corr.T H"t .
