Pcper at'10 cents per pound demands a good many greenbacks to keep the press going.- Toledo and Springfield, by .ordinance, close tbeir drinking saloons of all de-. scriptions at 10 o'clock every week day night. Bills authorizing the cities of Ports month and Irontou to issuo each $50,000 in bonds, in aid of a railroad from Portsmouth to a point opposite Ash land, hare passed the Legislature. They require the endorsement of the voters before they take effect. The people of Dayton hare become tired of the free and easy plan of treat ing Sunday. At the recent election they voted two to one in favor of a rigid enforcement of the laws against liquor selling, etc., on that day. The Democratic party occupies an anomalous position in regard to the Presidency. The. question is not, "who shall we nominate for President;" but instead, "how shall we get rid of Til den." It is a serious and bewildering conundrum to the party leaders. An exciting scene occurred In the National. House of Kepresentatlvej, last "Wednesday. Sparks, of Illinois, lost control of himself, and planted his fist under the nose of Clyraer, of Pa., and called him a liar. Xo blood shed. Both Democrats. A colored citizen of Mississippi ex plains the condition of his people in that State in this way: "It 1 vote the Bepublican ticket I wakes up next morning In a graveyard." A job of whitewashing is required in Licking county to cover up the crooked ness of some of its democratic officials Clothing and boots purchased for paup ers, it appeal 8 in evidence, were used by other parties. The election for Stale officers in Rhode Island occurred last Wednesday. There was no election for Governor, hut as the Legislature is three-fourths Republican the Bepublican candidate will be elected by that body. Oen Burnside will probably be returned to the U. S. Senate. Why suffer with Neuralgia when yon can be permanently cured of Neuralgia by White's great remedy. A terrible story comes from Bur mah. The King, who is sick with leprosy, is reported to have burned alive, nnder tho towers of the city walls, 700 men, women and cnildren, as a sacrifice on account of his ill ness. A six days pedestrian contest in New York City closed Saturday night, with Dan Hart, a colored man, as victor. He scored 565 miles in the six days, the greatest walking feat on record. Besides the O'Leary belt, Hart secured $1G,700 in money. Since the first of January 2,300 emigrants have arrived at Baltimore, as against 289 for the same period last year; and 35,825 have arrived at New York, against 11,114 for 1879. It is represented that these emigrants are of an unusually good class - of people. The Outlook. Tho Cincinnati Commercial of Monday sums up the Presidential situation, to date, in this way: It will require Instructions for Grant in both Kentucky and Illinois to give the third-termers the ghost of a chance in the Chicago Convention. Even with those States, they will ,have but about one-third of th Convention, and the most they can do will be to decide between Sher man and Blaine, or possibly to name a tntra man; ana in case tnere is a third, man, public opinion has strong ly designated TVashburne.

Tho bill was then referred to Mr. Bloom.-who will report a "new one in its place moie in conformity with the Coda. The bill is In tho interest of a number of English capitalists, represented here by Messrs. Jirty anu anoenoerger, oi Cin cinnati. The Englishmen, it is stated, contemplate Investing $25,TXW,000 in a new line ot raiiroau irom uincinnati to Baltimore, .following the Ohio River on the Ohio side as far as Gallipolis, cross ing it at that place, and running through West Virginia, and by the way of the Shenandoah Valley fo Baltimore. They state that If certain privileges are grant ed them they will be able to raise all the capital they desire In England, and that it is the Intention to build altogeth er with foreign money. Tbey ak, among other things, that theybe allow ed to issue as large a bonded indebted ness in proportion to the capital stock as they may see fltr and other special privileges- As an argument In support of their bill, they state tnat trie capital will be furnished by outsiders who will exDend t5.000.000 of the $25,000,000 in Ohio; that this wealth will be left here and the people will set the benefit of It, wherefore the Investors should have the privilege of spending It as they please, Thev claim also thatthev ask for noth. Ingmore than other Stateshave already granted.. The House win prooamy pass the new bill being matured by Mr. Bloom, who. while he is willing to al low the Com Dan v to Issue bonds as It pleases, will guard the privilege with a proviso that the proceeds must bo ex pended In the building and equipment of the road. THE BILL PASSES THE HOUSE COLUMBUS, April 9th, 1880. EmroB Joukxai.: The House passed a bill to-day to provide for the incor poration or interstate iianroaus. it was passed at the request of Cincinnati and Baltimore capitalists, they repre senting that they would build a Rail road from Baltimore to Cincinnati, throuzh Maryland. Virginia. West Vir ginia, and reach Ohio at Gallipolis, and then the shortest route to' Forrsraoutii, and then down the river to Cincinnati. The parties claim that tho route will be tnis summer. L.

The general sentiment of the Republicans of Greenfield are strong ly opposed to Grant" fbr President., It will be a misfortune to Gen. Grant, and to the Republican party to nominate him again for President. There is a certain point beyond whicli the eagle can not soar, like wise' there is' a' certain climax, in human greatness beyond whicli the ambitious aspirant for renown cannot go. We believe Grant h.-i9 reached his climax and it is cruelty to press him forward. It is cruel to set him up again a target for the arrows of slanderous tongue. No, let him rest; Expose not his blooming crown to the deadening withering blast of a political cam paign. What has become of the Local Option Law? We think that the advice of Morgan Tp. correspondent is very appropriate. While figuring about the effect of the passage of such law, they ought to think a little of the effect of not passing it. The voice of a hundred thousand of in tclligent moral citizens of the State of Ohio, ought and will have effect. The moral, religious element eonsti tutes the strength and, backbone of the Republican party. Better lose the whisky ring than to lose these.

Editor Jouonal: Thinking that somo pencil sketches taken while en route to this place, might not be uninteresting to your numerous readers, I seat my self for the purpose of giving, "as best I can in a letter, the, to me, most inter esting leatures of my trip. i lore uaiiipons on tne wn inst., on the steamer Ohio, arriving In Cincinnati on the 7th at 5 o'clock P. M., and left at 7Ji,for Council Bluffs, Iowa, via St. Louis and Kansas City. Nothing worthy of note occurred until alter leaving St. Louis, at 0 a. m. of the 8th. Our route now lav directly up tne aussouri itiver, whose rich, wide bottoms on either side are eovercu witn-tne uness ueius oi a. - ft .! wheat I ever saw at this season or the year, while every now anu men, spor ing in tne tnuuay loowng water, or clustered In groups along the beach, were huge swarms of wild geee, so tame that not even the approach of our train seemed" to disturb them in the lease. BetweenSt. Louis and Jefferson City we. cross on iron bridges the Osage ana Gasconade rivers, which rise In the Ozmt Mountains and emnty into the Missouri. At Jefferson City we stop 20 minutes for dinner. Soon the "an aboard" is cried, the bell rung, and avrav wesnepd for Kansas City, Missouri. For the first tlmo In my life I am now nut In the onen nrairle, no hills to be seen, but one vast level plain stretching away as far as the eye can reach, and dotted ever and anon with little clumps of trees planted around the dwellings to shelter them from the storms, - The lands here are very rich, the farms artistically laid off, good, and lu many instances, elegant houses and out buildings, with fine looking orchards, large herds of improved breeds of cat tle, sheep and swine, and miles of board a t aud'barb wire fence, all these are here, and yetstrauge to tell, a citizen.of the State, well acquainted here and now jit ting by my side, tells me that these lands with all their Improvements can be bought at from ten to fifteen dollars per acre, A little after dark we arrive at Kan sas City, Mo., where we have to wait one hour and thirty minutes before leaving for .Council Bluffs, Iowa. Thl Is a "last city," one can scarcely stand still for a moment without being in dan ger of being run over. I learned from a citizen, while'ln the waiting-room af ter supper, that Its population Is estima ted aurora sixty to seventy-live thous and. All aboard for Council ISluffs; out on the open urairie; fortunate a-raln in getting a lower birth In the sleeper; fly ing over a track smooth as a floor"nnd straight as an arrow, and having slept but little last niglit, at IU p. m. 1 Mutton tnv curtains, lay a-ide my outer cloth ing, and "turn In for the night." At daylight I nm awakened by the coral uc tor crylntr, forty-five minutes, to Coun- ell Bluffs, change cars, &c, &c. .Get up. dress myself, wash and go out to find it colder than it lias been in Ohio at any time during the past winter, with the wind blowing at such a furious rate E. A. STONE. April 3d, 1880. Editor Journal: In my last letter I leffyoiirreadersatCouncil Bluffs, Iowa. The weather extremely cold and the wind blowing a perfect tornado. This city Is on tho extreme western portion of the State, and about three miles from the foot of the Bluffs, and is. four miles distant from Omabn, Nebraska. The old-time explorers Lewis and Clark held council with some .Indians here in ISOf, and named the place Council Bluffs. It was originally settled by the Mormons and called Kanesvllle. It con tains a population of some fifteen thous and, aud like all western centers of trade is alive with business. Wc are now at what Is known as "Transfer O rounds;" here all passen gers, baggage and mail from the East are changed to the cars of the Union Pacific. We now launch out upon the vast 'sweeping plains, the barren desert and the grand old mountains for all these various features of the earth's surface we encountered before reaching Ogden Utah. To enjoy the trip over tins road one must be an "Indian agent," or some other kind of cmpleyee, whoso expenses are nam lor mm, as everything con suuied costs full three times as much as It does In the States. He must also lay aside all his preconceived ideas, nreiu- dices and ways, and for once be perfect ly natural, While he nies as it were among nature a grandest and loveliest creations. It is now 11:13 a. m. of Tuesday, tne tn. ah ready, tne ueu is rung, tne "an aooard" is sounded, and our train starts on a journey of 1023 mile? this belnf? the length of' II. P. 7nu! from here to Ogden, Utah the western ter minus or this road, and the' eastern ter minus of the "Union Central. The Missouri river is here crossed on one of the finest bridges on tho continent known as a "Post's Patent," supported ny noi low iron columns aa in number, two of which form a pier. These col umns are made 'of cast iron, 1( inches thick, 8J ft. in diameter, and weigh 8 tons to each joint or JO It. They are bolted 'together air tight, and sunk to the bed-rock, of tho river.

I he Government erected a large custom house and post ofiieo building here about nvc years ago, costing 3350.000. I want to give your readers some Idea of this western city. It has a Board of Trade consisting Of 128 members; smelt iug'and refining1 works reducing ores to tha yalne of $u,000,000 annually; three banks, with an aggregate capital of $320,000, whose depositors in 1377 numbered 2,974, whose average deposits amnnnteii to ?L'.0S7,uai,W, while their exchange for the same tlrmt was $K8. 181.C71'8, and their currency-shipments to fo,.iio,jiw. mere is punnshed In the city, three daily papers tfio Herald, Republican anil Bee two weeklies, the journal or commerce, and Commercial Exchange; one trl-weekly, the Omaha r.?i, ana one monthly, the High School. i ne city uas m.ju,7o invested in lree. school property, employs 44 teachers, aud Is educating between three aud four thousand pupils.

Now and then the watchful eye or the passenger will catch a glimpse o'f a lone grave, marked by a rude headboard, where some loved one far from home, aud worn down with toil aud sickness, laid down and died. Those were days, and these plains the place that tried men's souls. i he Platte is indeed a stransre rlyer. and after all there's more fancy than fact In this, in some respects, strange stream.
