Over ono thousand bills have been
proposed In our Legislation already, six hundred of which uro recommended for passage and printed. What a bless- J cd thing for Missouri' that our I.eghja turc happened to meet, for tho state must have been perishing for wart of law. The N. Y. Tribune says, the stool: of manufactured goods In the factories on I'M River, Mass. Is over one billion pieces, with a falling market, Thii Is tho result of over stimulation by tariff. Soon mint the factories go down and tho days of 1873 bo repeated. The Czar of Russia, Alexander II .vai murdorcd March, 13th Inst. A fow men, riding in nu open ba rouche, came close to his carriage and hurled into it several shells that explod ed with awful force, overturning and dcttroying everything In and about tho imperial carriage, killing or wounding twenty persons. Tho Czar.s legs woro fearfully mangled, had to be amputated and ho died from the exhaustion. Thus perished by tho hands of fiends ono whoso namo will go down to all fu ture nges as tho greatest emancipator of liia raco that over lived. For he freed over twenty millions of people from a sla very as bad as our hitu American Insti tution. It was 1 this move, coupled with In reformatory spirit that created tho enemies who finally destroyed him. Tho law and ages of custom made him the supremo Head of n Despotism. Hut tho great Aristocrats of Russia, jealous of his doctrines favoring equal rights, and desirous of perpetuating their ex clusive advantages, destroyed him. So far as tho millions of Russian pooplo nro concerned tho only question for thorn is this: shall wo bo governed by ono resposlblo Head or by several hundred Irrojponfiblo ones? Which is clicnpust? Naturally, in all countries, tho aristocrats,, tho inonouoliMts, nro extremely jealous for their privllges and will asasslnato whoever Interferes. Thus fell Lincoln, thus has lallcu Alex ander II of Russia. A Splendid Showing fur the Republican Party in County Indebtedness. Tho State Auditor's report bIiows that thoro nro fwenty-ilve counties in the Stato that have no bonded indeb tedness, as follows: Atchison, Andrew, Barry, Bqllingor, Cnldwoll. Carter, Cedar, Christan, DoKalb, Gasconade, Harrison, Hickory, Holt. Iron, Miller, Mississippi, Moniteau, Newton, Noda way, Perry, Reynolds, St- Francois, Louis, Scott and Washington. 01 these fourteen havo Republican or mixed county officers and foven of them, Atchison, Andrew, Caldwell, DoKalb, Harrison, Holt, and Noda way nro in tho Northwest. It is truly a roll of honor In which tho minority party of tho Stato leads tho van, and tho Uepublcans of tho Northwest carry tho banner. Tho minority, nil told, hnvejforty-fivo mcmbt-rs in tho House, and ono-thlrd of the territory they re present is out of debt. Tho Democrats havo ninety-eight members, and only one-ninth of tlo territory they represent is qut of doty. This would appear to Jndiqato thp eoouomlc administrative ability of tho parties. How Is That? Mu. pniTon: My statement as to a sultablo point for a bridge is contradict ed by "Newpolnter." Tho statement re- In t !.. I .... iciibuiuu in luivtbiiuu vo ;i MlllilDlu point for a brldgo across tho Nodaway River. Wcwillnoticp his first contra diction, as ho has two. Ho has tho con. tor point between the Graham and Ho-! ister bridges, two and a quarlor miles North of tho point mentioned, in my statement. That would put tho brldgo just whoro It would bo moat convenient for himself. Mr. "Newpojntor" would need a flat boat to get to hjs bridge now, as is generally tho paso. Ho says also, thoro aro no laid out roads. In answer to this wo would say with our kindest feelings only, that wo ad viso him to carefully examine tho Reg ister. Do not intiraato by your signa ture that New Point Is opposed to this, by far tho most suitable point, tho DcUolt ford. Omf.oa. John Curtis's Grove. In 16C5 Mr. John Curtis, who resides In tho Curtis scttlcmont north of Ore gpn concluded to plant a small grova us a wind brako for 'his house. In the spring he went to tho Missouri bottom wnero minions ot little cotton-wood sprouts wcro growing, and nulled sev. oral thousand ; "pulled them just as wo puucu nax" no ays. Taking them jiomo ho planted about tour acres by "drawing a furrow, dropping n sprout at propor latorvals, )hon drawing another farrow to cover them! Tho whole work of pulling, hauling, and planting took not over two days. Ho says all of the plants grow but about twenty five, and that tho value of that grove has been inestimable.. I has furnished him poles, 'wood, brush, and supplied him in overv conceivable tiling for which cqttn wood may bo used and might bo' derived din ing twclvo years. How ninny hundreds of dnys of hauling from tho timber somo miles distant has this littlo investment ui uvu uays moor snvcu o mm jn twclvo yparsP Besides, ho used the ground for Wq years for growing oorn and thp groro haa1 been a protection against tho wind, ap(d a beautiful orn pjent to bis property.
