"Therp are more things to be sera ' In this sprig ot winter-green Than its leaves, and berries red, And the dew on which they fed. , I will tell yon what some day, When the children are at play, ; Out of bearicp, out of .sight: But no word of it to-night, For 'tis Christmas Eve, and we Must go dress the Christm Tree." Anok, The frost has melted from the pane, For rime is not in reason When flowers bejrin to bloom npain, And the clear shining alter rain Foretells an April season. I know how white the snow-drifte lie ! ' Against the hawthorn hedge; And do not venture to deny That icicles hang high and dry Along the window-ledges. But some have found the flower of life A delicate May-comer ; Some find tiie winter's storm and strife With more of blooming sweetness rife 'ihan any hour of summer. And let me tell you why to-day The frost IcavcH no impression ; And who whm all the world is gray I hold, so coundciitly gay, ; The sunsnine In po&icssion.

And every cloud tiiat day or night , Had darkened over my delight, Keveaied a silver lining. For long ago, O long ago, io need now to remember. If April violets were in blow, Or it the fields were wrapt in snow Of dreary cold December, My love was prontl, my love and I Were prouu, and tender-hearted; Wc passed each other coldly by, .

Our business men open up their busi ness houses with brightand checiful coun tenances. Sabbath we were favored with a gen tle but thorough rain, which will very materially accelerate the growth of vege tables. Property is changing hands lively in our citv. We are rapidly approaching the old landmarks made a few years ago, or during war times. Houses to rent arc in great demand ; labor in good demand at remunerative prices; health good, and money plenty. Half dozen carpenters who can do lirst class work, are badly needed in this town, and could have more work than they could possibly Jo this summer. The fifty thousand dollars stock is be ing rapidly taken in the Joint Stock Manufacturing Association in this place. A very large and interesting meeting was held by the stock association, und friends of the organization last Friday evening. Speeches and words of encouragement were delivered by Dr. W. C. Matchett, Archibald Coldwell, Professor Allen, Wm Sear, Dr. A. C. Matchutt, Howard Barnaby, and others. Resolutions passed, additional committees appointed, and the meeting adjourned to meet for the com pletion of untinished business again next Friday evening. Our German Baptist friends have re turned home from their annual District meeting, in the Northern District of In diana; and as the great battle of Lexing ton was fought on the l'Jtta of April, 1775, so likewise the great battle of these pri mitive christians for the perpetual per manency, and continuance of Salem Col lege at Bourbon, Indiana, was fought on the lyth of April, 1S72. The Friends of education among the Brethren were vic torious, the members voting to continue to sustain, and to accept turuil time thi as their own organization, and with it all the responsibilities rjliYskally, mentally, and pecuniarily ; and now as this ques tion has been fully and fairly settled by them in their own counsels, and knowing that the Dunkanls arc not ai'iaid to spend money for anything they want after they decide that il is right, may we not look f'r them to make lliis College a success in every respect, will the brethren stand ov and see the treasury "dry" while they nave their thousands, will they turn "a deaf ear to appeals directly and indirectly made by tlieir trustee of Salem College, or will they turn a cold shoulder to the General Agent when he calls upon them lor aid in this, mattery believing him to lie an esteemed, honored und honorable, a jenerous hearted, true Christian and lifither we theretoie commend him in unmistakable language to all friends of the true nrinciples of education w hether within or with lut ttie pail of the church, ami would argue all to aid liberally in erecting buildings, endow ing it aud fnr- iiisliintr a faculty, worthy of the energy ana uetermiuanon ot the trustees, who ire perhaps as true men as their denomi nation can boast, and whose desires are to make Salem a model College nut only for Indiana but, for the world. Howard Barnaby has bought ten acres of land of Mr, Davis adjoining town whfre he intends shortly to erect a mod el residence for himself and his little fam ily; we are also informed that he has pur chased the business house owned by Hon. M. M. Gulentine recently of this place. There is to be another large and ener getic firm to open up business here within i he next month, w ho will act us a power ful means of attraction of customers from the suburbs of our already large circle, ooundiug the trade to Bourbon. People frequently come forty or fifty miles here to get a splendid suit of clothes, from Mr. Wm. Sear, or Mr. Elias Devinnty; count out their expenses, and then make ten or .ifien dollars for their time and tro home well pleased themselves, and respected by their friends. Our city will soon be thrown into com motion, maybe before the Cincinnati con vention, as a meeting of the citizens of "Bourbon city." may meet and nominate some other man in the place ot the dead man, who has nominally rilled the office of city Marshal, for the past year, we want it distinctly understood that wc want a change we want, the citizens waut, a Marshal that will prosecute every aggressor, wlio may wage an aggressive war upenthe corporation, by blockadiug the streat.i aud si te.v ilks with deoris of all kinds. Let us have an energetic man, one who knows his duty and is not afraid to do it. While the general tendency in every move of our city is toward im provement among our citizens, let us look well to the selection of the officials. Saturday we were invited and accepted an invitation to drop in at the residence of Dr. A. C. Matchett, who was the fa vordd recipient of probably some less than a hundred of as line and genial, but as Odd gents as the city of Bourbon can produce. The Dr's. table side-board. Secretary, Bureau, Desk and Cupboard were all filled and loaded down until their legs bent under them, and they literally groaned under the weight of the most elaborate bill of fare, perhaps, ever before presented to the same number of pleasant, affable genial Odd Fellow s in the city of Bourbon. The Dr's estimable wife was all smiles, surrounded by a few happy and ple-isant ladies. She seamed to enjoy this meeting of friends so much, that we were forcibly impressed that these are the land marks of human existence, and that many friends will make this the data from which to calculate. Our select Sch ool and our College are both in full operation at the present time, a large attendance at both institu tions, and Mr. Bailey in charge of our select school is giving good satisfaction to all concerned. The Professors in the college are very much liked by the stu dents, friends and patrons, of the same. As goon as the season opens and we have brick made, a number of Brick Ma sons would do well here as a great many fine Brick Blocks will shortly go up in thlti place. Mr. editor these are simply a few facts, and our reason for sta ting tbem is for the purpose of benefiting comrauuitv by lettincr them know through your valuable paper where they i - . .. nsas aj'ung and growing Clty.and them as energetic mechanics and working men. Argos Items. Akros, Isn., April 15, "72. Editor Bepnblican : The Sunshine and showers of the past two weeks hae greatly improved the appearance of wheat, which was not so badly damaged as was supposed. The prospects for an abundant harvest are now veiy flattering. There is considerable discussion on our street corners, which sometimes grows animated, as to the relative merits of our past, and present, board of corporation of ficers the latter claiming that the former did little else than issue orders on the town treasury for their own especial ben efit, and threaten to repudiate all that are yet unpaid. As to the justice of this course, we leave people to drr.w their own conclusions.. The act however would be very natural, the entire b-ai-d being mem bers of the great national repudiating pa r ty. It is but truth to say, that although the ex officers did but little; the present incumbents have done less. The old board planned and perfected some work, w-hile the present, have perfected nothing. Under the supervision of the old boaTd there was a considerable amount of side walk constructed a few sewers sunk some street crossings put drwn and a vdlabooxe built : which we believe has not been occupied since the memorable occa sion on which, a lady, having something of the Molly Sturk spirit in her composi tion, marched, hatchet in hand, to the lock.tp, smashed the locks, stove in the doors, and released her husband from"da rauce vile," who had been incarcerated for occupying a little too much space on the. side-walks. A commendable spirit of uevonon to ner nege lord, certainly. Excuse the digression, and we will shortly have done with this subject. One more council and our honorable board, will retire from the field of their ardu.ouis labors, to prinUe life, "there to enjoy the happy retlections consequent upon a well spent stewardship." And where gentlemen, is the fruit of your la bors "echo answc.s wherj." The Argos correspondent of th? Bour bon Mirror attempts to get off a drive on some of the Argosites relative to an un successful pigeon hunt c. If Frank sundown was never more un lucky than they; in some of his night ex cursion, then "we are mistaken in the man ; thats all. Some of the boys propose ne-it time to hire Frank to go along and carry a huge trunk, wiili supplies &c., and thus save the expense of a team. Some fun loving individual perpetrated a rattier, laughable joke oil Dr. R. B. Eaton, the other day, uy privately slipping into his pill bags a large roll of Bologna sausage. The Dr. shortly after picked up his pill bags, got into his buggy, and drove for the coun try ; fetching up at Fred Stairs; where, alter examining his patient, he proceeded 10 open his pill bags, when out rolled the bologna, to the great discomfiture of the doctor and the intense amustrient of the company present. The docf;.f although a rttil man, ("of the improved border') is oaid to have become a tew shades redder. Mr. Stair coolly observed, that the Dr. need not bring his dinner when visiting his house, a.s they alwajs had plenty to eat. ' The language of the Dr. on the oc casion, is said to have been considerably mixed with expletives which were not al together ornamental, but served in pirt to give emphasis to his feelings. The Dr. did not "set up the cigars" on his return, else we should have said nothing about it. A number of citizens of Green and Walnut Tps.. met in Lesley & Mil ler's hall on Saturday last, for the purpose of reorganizing a Farmer's association. The meeting was organized sy appoint ing Merill Williams chairman, and L. Bsrr,Socy. The meeting was addressed by Williams, Lowery, and others, show ing the necessity for, and the advantages to be derived from, such an organization. Meeting adjourned to Saturday the 27th day of April, at two o'clock P.M. Brimstone. SEVEN HUNDRED ON FOOT. JULES Jftls Sventon Nyttcn, the Home steader. Where there' a Will, there' a wJ" BT PROF. J. D. BCTLER. Lixcoln, March, 25th, 1872. Nils Nysten is a Swede, and was born where his forefathers, even to the years of many generations, had been content w ith "only this and nothing more." "To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot," He aspired higher, but so low was his birth, and so strong the barriers around him, that he was three-score years old be fote he could work his passage to Ameri ca. Two years ago he reached Iowa with his w ile, and penniless, stopping first in Mount Pleasant. While working there at his trade of wagon making, he became convinced that his best means of further advancement, was to secure a Nebraska Homestead without dclaj His mode of making this boon his ow n, is worth telling to encour age the others. HOW HE DID IT; He walked from his home to Lincoln, 307 miles, along the track of the Bur'ing ton & Missouri River Railroad. This journey he accomplished in about fifteen days. At Lincoln he lound shelter in the Immigrant's Rest, a building provided bv tne o. a, jxauroad Uo., where land hunters may lodge and live without charge, while seeking farms. Looking at the maps of public lands in tho United States judged York county to afford the most uesinioie noraesieaus. He ttiereioie want ed on thither seventy miles further. Having picked out the farm which suited him best of all those still vacant, he re turned to the Land Office and filed his claim to it, September 2d, 1871, paying 14 in fees. His hnmccfoart rvinaiata rf 80 acres, in the 34th section of the 11th township in the 3d range west, of the 6th principal meridian. WHAT THEK ? Repairing again to the farm of his choice he made sundry improvements for a month. He finished him a dug-out and stacked twelve tons of wild hay. His purse was now empty, save one dol lar and a half, bat he walked to Lincoln, and thence home, as he had walked hith er, daily laying behing him about twenty miles. - Soon after reaching home, at the end of a seven hundred mile walk, he learned that his hay stacks had been burned by a prairie fire having no plow, he had been unable to make a fire-break around them. But throughout all. he seemed to have lost nothing of heart or hope, but to have remained as jolly as Mark Tapley, in C nuzzle wit. Through all the winter he worked at his trade, sometimes beginning his toils at two o'clock in the morning. Thus he finished three wagons. Two he traded off for a mule and har ness Then putting onboard his wife, a barrel of pork, a harrow, all of wood, made by himself, and some other need ments, he drove westward, by the same route which he had last fall traveled on foot. He took with him three other Scandi navian Homestead hunters, each with a wagon and his family in it. He arrived in Lincoln in due time, rest ed a httle among the old familiar hospi talities iorstrangers, aflorded gratuitous ly by the B. M Railroad Co., through the w ho,e souled keeper, John Frost, and on the 21st of March, in spite of an equinoc tial wind, set his face towards his home stead. His journey thither can hardly re quire more than three days, but as he must needs be there before the first day of April, or be egregiously April fooled, by forfeiting his farm, he resolved to make assurance doubly sure. Hence he has ta ken time by the forelock. Nils Nysten is sixty-two yaars old, though he declares himself only forty when just shaved. His example shows what others can do.
