SATURDAY, - NOVEM.BER 2, 1872. HIES E. CHAMBERS, - - Editor. EDITORIAL P1BAG1UPHS. , Vf publish this week our second an nual Premium List and Clubbing Bates and believe that an examination will : show them to be the most liberal and the most complete of any ever before offered in this section of the State. We would invite especial attention to our Clubbing Rates as as there-are no less than one hundred and fifty of the best -magazines and papers in the country in cluded In the list- and by availing them selves of the rates there affixed, our pat- ' ons can effect a saviDg of trom flfty to one hundred per cent, (specimen copies I of nearly all the publications on our list I can be seen at this office. . Ovn exchanges . are still filled with long accounts of the continued preva- ' lence of the horse disease, .and in those sections where its ravages are the most violent the excitement concerning it is reported as being so great' as to even overshadow that attending the political - contest. In Buffalo, Rochester and other eastern cities, and notably in New Tork, ' there is not sufficient horse-power left to move the business population, let alone the transportation of merchandise,build .ing material and food and fuel supplies. Many suggestions are constantly being made as to its treatment and the causes which brought it into existence and con. -cerniag this latter it is noticeable that -all agree in pronounceiug It the result 'of uncleanliness, want of care and im proper or insufficient food. This being true, the loss entailed by the epidemic may possibly be attended with good re- wilts, If only it shall have the effect to teach the masters and mangaers of the horse the necessity of more constant . care for its comfort and protection. It is an: indisputable fact that as a rule there is too much severity and cruelty and entirely too little attention to qua! " ity of food, regularity of rest and com- ifort of shelter manifested by those who are entrusted with the handling of ' horse-flesh in the heavier occupations where the auimals are employed. If then' the present experience shall be able to teach that all this must be changed t and that- humanity is a business neces- I . sity, it is possible, as we said oetore, 'that the present loss may result in good and prove a valuable and. needed lesson. On Tuesday next according to the frequent utterances and well-supported assertions of the past four months, the country is to be irretrievably . lost or saved, just aa the one or the other can didate receives a majority of the votes to be cast for a choice of our Chief Mag istrate. " Possibly this may be so. But one of the brightest page in Roman history is that which records the ovation to a military commander because, al though returning beatenfrom a campaign he yet "had never despaired of the Re public". And we believe .in the fullest exercise of that sturdy Boman virtue to lay, and. feel that we have far better grounds on which to rest our Implicit faith than had he who marched under the . Eagles of Bome. There is a melancholy brood of croakers, who are forever slan dering the present, denouncing the de cadence of human virtue, and predict ing the speedy ruin of the country, with whom we have but very little 'pa tience and positively no sympathy at all. And all the more insufferable are these, because, for the most part, their doleful prophecies and "opinions are tounded upon no better ground than the success ' ' of this or that political faction. If their pet lot of log-rollers fail, or if that set of wire-pullers get hold .of the offices, : the liberties of the Republic will be knocked into smithereens, and all vir tue and prosperity given over to the owls and the bats, tor our part we ' hn're nn fenra for th Reniiblie sn Ion cr ak - iVeo. thnno-hr. fre Bneeeli and free - r o ' conscience remain. And these will re main to us so long as general education and a field for honest industry prevail in our land. . Whatever may be the re- suit of the impending elections, wehave ' no doubt of the continued growth and ' glory of the Republic. The-nation is '"greater than parties, and in the exercise of their enlightened judgment the citi- '.,y.ns can and will correct the evils and ,: errors of .the past. ..Whatever, there- fore, may be the outcome of the politi cal contesty we may justly look forward to the ever-Increasing power and pro- , . gress of the Republic-r-a progress toward ,ji more perfect day, a day of sweeter manners, purer laws, greater culture, niore Hbsolute justice. The tendency of the., world, despite the jeremiads of ; croakers, is steadily toward the light and the truth. ' 1 LefendisrFactn! As there is no nation without its le- : gends its shadowy fragments of truth ' and fiction handed down from the cloudy confines' of pre-historic antiquity eo there is no portion of a people's litera ture so dear or so cherished as this, . True the authority upon which these le- ' gends. rest may be questionable or even unknown the incidents may be fantas tic and fabulous but they are fraught with lessons drawn from the beneficent and the heroic and commend themselves , to the human mind through that which Carlisle has so aptly called "the virtue of a proneness for Hero worship." Nor are their effects light and transient. In the infancy of literature it is the bard - or the minstrel who first rouses the peo ple's mind to a perception of the unseen world of thought and by them abstract Ideas are clothed with the vesture of in dividuality arid action in the person of : some . hero whose name and - exploits became teachers to all the generations of their race. Fable and legend are ever the- favorite' teachers of infant nations as well as of children, and though both the one and.the other may .; outgrow the simple tales of early lessons, yet their Influence remains for aye, It is therefore with feelings of real re- , ' gret that one finds studious and schol- arly'men, industriously at work through " vears of investigation, to prove that their national legends have no fouuda- d at Ion in fact. Amitting their labors to have Ufeen so far unsuccessful as to : have 6hovn the falsity of the supposed -".facts upon which the legends rest, what possible good has been accomplished when all this poetry of the past shall have been made to yield to the realistic ... spirit that prompts the investigation? 1 And apropos of this, there just now comes to ns from across the ocear. the new -that learned men are at work un ' dcr the sanction of the Historical Socie , ty of tho old Swiss cantons, to show , that the legend of William Tell is purely ' inythlcal and had no foundation inac tunl. firm fact. We are even told that the learned Kopp has brought forward . evidence from which he reaches the con delusion that there never was any Wil liam Tell never any tyrant Gcssler that neither William Tell or any other man was ever required to shoot his arrow at an apple placed on the head of his own son, and that the barbed point from crossbow never pierced the heart of the cruel Governor. Possibly all this may really be true nud iossibly the historian Kopp has been successful in thus tearing off the legendary veil from the skeleton facts that led to the foundation of the Swiss Coufedeartion. But what great good, to history even, bas been accom plished by all this? -Indeed what actual harm has not, possibly, been done to that country and to the world vy brand ing as false the subtimest lesou ever given of., devoted patriotism triumph ing over the cruelty aud arrogance or tyrannical power? Certainly it is pain ful to every mind susceptible of poetic thought or feeling,to be required by the evidence of -dry dismal Materia- records to abandon it belief iu cheruud tradi- ditions, long accented. as actual events and & exchange them, - with all their gow cf romance, . for dull narratives, around the moral foundations of which we can gather nothing but dust and ash es? Is it sufficiently, profitable to com pensate? .In this one instance Swit zerland herself, heroic as her brave peo ple have undeniably been, owes halt her heroism to the lesson which their Tell has inculcated in the minds of her youth and it seems almost a sacrilege for cold- eyed dull-mouthed History to issue the heartless mandate commanding that freedom-loving people of the mountains to "tear down the flaunting lie." ' r- By fable and ' allegory all minds aie first taught abstract ideas. None are too wise to keenly enjoy the lore . of the legend which clothes imaginary events with the garb of personal heroism. No one can be so prosaic as to De wholly unmoved by the hopes and straggles, the embarrassments and the-achievements of characters for whom his human sym pathies have been enlisted by the elo quent story of legend old and rich with hoarded treasures of thought and feel ing. Was it not by allegory nd the parable that the Divine Teacher in structed his followers and disciples, so that "without a parable spoke be not unto them?" The legends of a country belong to its literature, its history, its very life. Willing to accept almost any novelty as history, if so required,' we must protest against' that realistie at tempt which seeks to attack the mystic tales around which are twined the flow ers of cuikiliood'g Imagination, the memories of early emulative ambition, and even the' half-sad half-pleasant sug- gestions of later life. BOOKS AND PAPERS. We have received from the music publishing establishment' of Horace Waters,. No. 481 Broadway,' NV. Y., verv prettv piece of music entitled "When the Light Wave Rippling Play" words by Arthur JMattuisoii and music by J . It. Thomas. This Aiding -or November comes to us replete with gems of literature and art. " Niagara" is probably the most beautiful engraving, although all are good. The poetry, stories, and general miscellany are excellent, and ' R. II Stoddard is proving himself fullv able to edit the most recherche publication in the country with credit to himself and satisfaction to his. readers. The Over iand Monthly for ' November has reached us, and, so far as we can judge by a' brief examination," is fully equal to any of the preceding numbers Joaquin Miller has another installment of his "Isles of the Amazons." There are several interesting articles on general subjects, some fine poetry, and the usual amount ot pains-taking editorial: work Altogether, the -November Imerland is an excellent number . or : an excellent magazine. The story of "An Open Question, published in Appleton's Journal, by the author of the American Baron, and " Dodge Clnb," is so full of interest that we impatiently await the com in of each succeeding number;-' Besides this, the biographical sketches, articles on art, history and science, the poetry and illustrations in this weekly periodi cal are bo excellent that we wonder that any person of l'terary taste is not subscriber to it. .Look out lor a new I year Of good things.

Elwood Zell, under the name of; ZeWs Monthly Magazine. ' It is a very neatly . printed "forty-page publication, and seems to be well calculated to take a position as a popular, interesting work. The present number contains several in teresting articles, and, as a rule, the ' il lustrations are good. .As to the especial objects to which this magazine is to be devoted, perhaps , we . cannot - do better than to quote the closing paragraph of its own prospectus: ' lo sum up the heads of our undertaking, we purpose to make of Zell's Monthly Magazine a popular serial; of an eclectic character, as well as a hand-book of encyclopedic reference a work which shall form an index, so to speak, to all those current sociai, scientific and literary events of importance which may arise to attract the public interest and attention. The work wiil be issued with due ' punc tuality, and will receive every addition and improvement that time or circum stance may suggest." In providing reading for your fami lies, do not forget your children. ; They need a weekly paper as well as the older folks, and a good paper of that kind is, the Bright Side and Family Circle, Which is published by the'Bright Side Compa ny, Chicago. This Company suffered so much from the great fire a year ago; that they were able to issue it this year only once a month, but they have so far re covered from the effects of the fire, that they will issue it weekly again in 1873, at f 1,60, and every subscriber will havo a handsome Chromo, which alone will be worth more than the price of tiie pa per. Specimen copies will bo sent to any who ask for them. Naturally, with the reception of the November number of Scribnar's one turns to read the opening . chapters of Arthur Bonnicastle's" Dr. Holland's new story. After reading it, it is impos sible not to experience a feeling of regret that omy one chapter, of, perhaps, a dozen pages, is given, although that is amply sufficient to awaken interest and give, promise of futnre excellence. Probably we cannot do better than 1 to quote and endorse the following from the New York Evening Post: "There is a good deal of quiet humor iu the dialogue, and the characters are. fresh and natural, while the style of the descriptive passages, it need scarcely be said, is fluent and fascina ing. Much of the effect of Dr. Holland's writing is to be attributed to the ease and grace of the composition. The dramatic promise ot Arthur itoumcustle, however, is such as to make us regret that the author has not been writing novels these mmy years." From. the hands of the lady canvas- j sers who are about to introduce the work to the citizens of this place, we have received a copy.of Dr. Cowan's "Science of a new liie." We have not read the work thoroughly, but Have examined it with sufficient ease to ia ..able to recommend it to all who may have it brought to their notice. Its scope is prettv well indicated by iu dedication "To "all the Married, but Particularly Jo those w no contemplate .Marriage And it is a work devoted to all that relates to marriage. In treating the subject the doctor writes with' the most downright plainness on the most delicate matters, but with the "most perfect purity, - and with an evident intention to do good.

The country is rich in pasture '. and timber, but has no cultivable land worth speak ing of. . There are tracks of fertile soii, but no running streams to irrigatethem. To-day we crossed a valley, or rather a depression, some ten miles wide and reaching as far as 1 could see from north to south, completely matted with the white-top bunch-grass, which make the richest pasture in the world. But the Indians ten me tnattne wnoie tract con tains not a spring or - running stream, and that the eole dependence is upon holes or tanks in the sand-stone of the lordering peaks.

The first. view is frightful enough. At my feet. the face of the peak drops off au angle apprently of seveuty degrees for three or four thousand feet; at the bottom of this begins a plain, broken by offsets and chasms, extending four or. live miles, and broken by ; an abrupt gorge, some 3,000 feet deep, at the bottom of which appears in furious whirls and rapids the red and yellow Colorado. Despite the distance, so great is the descent that the river appears aimu&b uiircti.y uciicabii me; my head swims at the view, and I cannot repress a shrinking fear at the thought that we must make that descent. But there was no help for- it. Every thing was made tight in our packs, aud trailing the lariats over 'their backs, each man cautiously worked his horse before him , down . the ; " trail. In four hours we reached the plain and first resting place. How we did it will al ways remain a mystery to me. , I am persuaded-my .horse could go Tip or down any pair of stairs in New York. At the bottom we found a gorge contain ing moist sand, in which we dug hole with our knives and tins ;. they .soon filled with water, which served for. oar horses and to prepare breakfast for us. It tasted like a mild infusion .of Epsom Salts, and the coffee .-was so bitter . we could not drink it. -. Two . hours along this plateau, in a northeast direction brought us to a ridge putting out from the mountain, to the . .river ; . this we climbed and en the northern side found the only practicable-trail down , to. the rive r, which we reached at three In the afternoon.

Kirtxajtd, Oct.'2S, 1872. , Friend Chambers':'. Having spent the most .of my time, in, Nebraska for the last two years,: I have received numer ous letters from parties in Lake eounty, inquiring as to the soil, water, timber, chances for getting homesteads, Indians, &c. ; but not being-' settled,' and travel ing the most of the time, I found it dif ficult to answer all such inquiries; but having returned home some three weeks since, and being confined .to my house with the fever ami ague, , and having every other day to myself, I thought it best to answer the ' numerous questions through your paper.. ''AS to 'the soil, I think it is the richest and easiest tilled of any land I ever saw. We had the finest crop of wheat and corn I ever saw grow out of the ground a great many pieces of wheat that went as higli as 35 bushels per acre. As for timber, it is scarce not enough in most places for fuel; but we can get plenty of coal at $8 per ton, aud the farm ers say that they can raise corn for fuel cheaper than they could chop the wood if they had the timber. As for water, they have the very best and plenty , of it. As for homesteads, the chances are just as good to get good laud as ever. The land in the Platte Valley is mostly taken up, but there is plenty of JJ. P. R. R. land to be had at from $5 to $8 per acre, and there is just as good land in the smaller villages that is subject to homestcaiHng. The country is being settled verv fast. and I think the next year will see every loot oi tne government- iana taxen up. There are a few thousand Indians left. but they are just as harmless as the whites. They are all sef.led on reser vations, aud are under the charge of the Quakers, They have good schools, and the children are making fine pro gress in civilization. The Indians arc not permitted to go outside their reser. vation without a pass from their agent. The Pawnees,' Oraahas and Puncaws returned a few days before I left from their three months hunt, and brought the meat and hides of i.000 buffalo. The meat Is dried for winter, and the hides ure tanned for clothe and tents. There were some four thousand Indiana on this hunt. They take along all their 1 ponies to carry tfteir meat, and hides, They go out again next month to kill mem lor tueir roues. uev win ix gone most of the winter.

R. Dodge, Statistician of the De partment ot Agriculture, indicates the comparative production of wheat, oats and barley, and the condition of the corn crop on the first of October. The record of the yield of wheat is quite as variable as was that of its condition dur ing summer. : : Some states have made su perior crops, and others almost the poor est ever grown. 1 The New England States have nearly their usual average. The middle States and Maryland togeth er have reduced their last year's aggre gate from thirty-seven million bushels to twenty-four million, or thirty-five per cent. The Southern States, from "Vir ginia to Tennessee, which were known to have iucreased largely their wheat area, appear to have enlarged their pro duction fifty per cent,, or from eighteen million bushels to twenty-seven million. California has increased her product at least seventy-five per cent. Minnesota and Iowa have made a material increase, while Missouri and Kansas, the former growing winter wheat mainly, the lat ter both winter and spring, have had a comparative failure in both varieties. Virginia and Kentucky have had good crops, while Maryland and Ohio return diminished yields, as does the entire dis trict between Ohio and the lakes, the Miami and the Hudson. - Returns have been received from counties represent ing a large proportion of the wheat of each state, which Indicate an increase of l auoui nve per ceni, over the product of last year, which is estimated at 23,000,000 bushels. It Is probable that the comple ted estimate will not fall short of 240, 000,000 bushels, upon an area a little less than twerty million acres. This will make the yield between twelve and thirteen bushels per acre, which may be considered an average-for the United States. The increase in the states west of the Mississippi appears to be about fif teen million bushels, or, in comparison I with last year's products, eighty m to seventy million bushels. The million ceu- tral line of wheat production, running north and south, is this year farther west than ever oetore, and nearly iden tical with the 00th meridian, wlilch dl vides centrally the States of Wisconsin and Illinois. Nearly all the wheat pro duced between this line and the Missis sippi river is grown in the western half of these States. The quality of wheat is better than last year.

": :' Mr. Robert Bonner has given the fol lowing letter to the public. . . Springfield, Mass., Mr. Jionneri .. - Dear Sir. In the spring ot 1868 a di sease broke out among my cavalry horses at Fort Sumner, .New Mexico, t hat ap pears to be identical with that, now ra ging among horse in our cities, and in a very lew days oecame an epidemic At first it defied all treatment, and the great majority of horses attacked by it died. On examining the throats of the dead horses, 1 lound the lining mem brane of the larynx highly Inflamed and thickened, and a thick mucous pus lilt ing it, causing sufflcation. I ordered all horses on the first appearance of the disease, to be thoroughly rubbed betwee the lower jaws and along the larynx down the neck with spirits of turpentine, causing a very severe external irritation and blister. I saved every horse thus treated, end In a few days entirely broke the distem per and checked the epidemic. I do not doubt , that thohsands of horse where this , epidemic prevails can de saved by adopt ing this treatment. 'It acts more quickly as a counter-irritant than any other I know, and relieves the fever of the membrane of the larynx in a very lew hours, .... Besides, spirits of turpentine is al ways at hand, and can be more readily applied than any other, counter-irritant. It should thoroughly be rubbed in through the skin, for a distance of some twelve or fifteen inches under the jaws and down the neck of the horse, imme diately over the larynx. The remedy is severe , and makes the skin sore for sev eral weeks, and for an hour causes great suffering to the horse. But It acts promptly and effectively, and, in my judgment, it will be found the best, and perhaps, the only cure for this fearful malady, causing such suffering and loss among horses throughout the country. My love of horses induces me to ad dress you, and to ask you to give to this communication such place iu your pa per to reach the public in the most prompt and general way, and stay one of the greatest misfortunes now threat ening all communities, and destroying by thousands the noblest animals created for the service of man. Very truly yours, R. S. Roberts, Brevet Brigadier-General U. S. A. The death of Mrs. Greeley took place at the residence of Alvin Johnson, Tues day evening her symptoms inspired some faint hopes of her . recovery, but during. the night she had two chills, af ter which she was very .easy until four o'clock, when she passed peacefully ! away.

In Brooklyn the registry is 7o,17. 1 he present reg istry lawforXewYorkis so stringent that H.X-C01 lector Thomas Jtturphy was un able to secure registration. It is inti mated that a close scrutiny of the regis try lists will warrent the striking of number ot names from them. The horse malady has now spread to such an extent that almost all horses in New York are said to be suCering, in one form or other from symptoms of the epidemic. There are thousands ot hor ses which have not vet been put upon the list, but observation shows that many oi these have germs ot the disorder 111 their system. The disease has thus far beeir rather slow in its development and it is not knowu yet whether all its stages have been seen. It is estimated that in the city and immediate vicinity there are from thirty to forty horses suffering trom well developed symptoms. The disease has begun to exhibit new and alarming phases, which are looked on as highly dangerous. The inflammation ot the throat extends to the lungs and rap idly ' grows more alarming, and the coughing grows more convulsive, the animal pants for breath, and becomes quite cold at the extremities. This seems to be the warning ot the malady and if it continues as widely prevalent as it is now a lew days longer there can belittle doubt that hundreds of horses will die, The street car companies, some of the livery stable proprietors, ad many of the down town merchants are still work ing their diseased horses,and in all these cases signs of fatality are becoming more alarming. 111 staoies wnere au bust ness is suspended until ' the disease is mastered, very tavorabie reports are made; In some instances the con vales ence is very rapid. T netaotters and ra cers stabled in the city seemed to have nearly escaped disease. American Girl is already almost recovered from her slight attack. At least three hundred cars have been withdrawn from the city railroad liucs. In this branch alone the disease throws a thousand men out of employ. Hack- men have almost tripled fares tor pas sengers, in utter violation of law, and refuse to carry those refusing to pay the illegal rate. - Managers of railroad com panies believe at the present rate -their stock cannot hold 'out longer than Sun day night. No stable reports, as yet, that any horses have been perfectly cured. Canada. Premier Blake and Treasurer McKen- zie have resigned to sit in Parliament. The Lieutenant Governor has sent for Vice-Chancellor Mowatt to form a new Government. ' Mowatt has resigned the office of Vice-Chancellor and accepted thn task.

It was not understood whether they were friendly or otherwise. Some movement was ou foot with theRed Lake Chippe was against the Boundary Commission, but the Commission having, American troops as an escort, are not likely to be much troubled. ' England. A large meeting in favor of amnesty to Fenian prisoners was held in Man chester, at which Isaac Butt, member of parliament, leader of the Irish Home Rule party, was the principal speaker. Mr. Butt, in the course of his remarks, said that Ireland never could welcome Gladstone to her soil unless amnesty to her sons was made complete. He also spoke in terms of vigorous censure of the treatment : accorded to prisoners, who, he alleged, have suffered during their confinement gross cruelties at the hands of their jailors, j - Sir John Duke - Coleridge, Attorney General of Great Britain, delivered an address before the Liberal Association of the City of Exeter, in the course of which he said ot the result ot the Ge neva arbitration that England had got well out of a bad business. ; "- Alexico. - The political situation is improving, and it is thought that the administration of Lerdo de Tejada will be successful. The primary elections took place on the 13th instant. Lerdo de Tejada's nomin ation was unopposed, and the result will probably be declared in time for him to enter upon his regular term of office on the first of December. ; . The Minister of Fomento has presented a message to Congress urging a conces sion to theinteruational railroad connect ing the Capital,- Lagos and Mazatlan with the United States. The recoinmen datiou of the Minister is in the strongest terms, showing the great interest felt by the Executive in the building of the railroad. The Government grants the Company a subvertion of $9,500 for each kilometre of the road it shall build, an extra premium of $100,000 for every year the road is finished inside 'of ten years, and many other advantages. ,A Commissioner has been appointed to investigate the affairs on the Rio Grande. Mazatlan is again in the hands of the Government. Porfiris, Diaz aud Donato Guerra are the only rebels of note who have not accented amnesty. ' ' - Qermany. The Upper House remains linn in its opposition to the country reform bill. Count Von Entenburg, Minister of the Interior, in view of the defeat of the measure,' has tendered his' resignation, bnt the Emperor refuses to accept it. There is a coutlict between the Upper and Lower houses of the Prussian Diet on the country reform bill, which pro vides for local self-government in the rural districts. The bill which was adopted by the Chamber of Deputies in their last session, eame before the House of Lords at the beginning of the present session, and has since met with deter mined opposition. The majority of dep uties threaten to resign if the Upper House refuses to pass the bill, and the Emperor has declared in favor of it.
