Echo, newspaper published at Johnstown,

direction of newspaper life. It was at a
time when the people were greatly ex
cited about "the Nebraska bill," as it was
called a bill reported by Senator Douglas,
as chairman of the committee on territories,
for the organization of the territories of j
Kansas and Nebraska, repealing "the
Missouri compromises" and establishing
'squatter sovereignty," leaving the peo
ple who should locale in those territories to
settle the slavery question for themselves.
The -Democracy of Ilock Island were
divided on the question of the propriety of
the bill, as, indeed, they weie nearly
everywhere. Joseph Knox, George
Mixter, and a lew others, auti-Nebraska,

Pershing to start an anti-Nebraska Demo

Though generally regarded at that time
as au anti-Nebraska paper, the Rock-

could an auxicus parent do? What did
he do? Went home, while the elopers
were left to tread unmolested their way

It is to be hoped a good ending may
follow so bad a beginning. The next sen

W. J. Eutriken Esq., president of the
club, then briefly and appropriately reca
pitulated the work of the club for the
season, and warmly thanked Rock Island
and Geneseo for libera' patronage.
The concert was then opened by Mr.
Wm. R. Case with a piano solo, followed
by Signor Ferranti with a comic song,
which was vigorously encored, and a por
tion of it repeated. Ferranti is a good
basso and comic actor. Signor Brignoii,
the ancient tenor, then sang iIn terra ci
diuiso" and for response to encore sang,
with pretty effect, "Good-bye, Sweetheart,
Good-bye." No- 4, for tho close of
the first part of the concert, was
"Rohtrto toi que j'aimc," from Meyer
beer's opera of "Robert le Diable," sang
by Miss Abbott. Her appearance on the
platform was greeted by great applause
and as she came to the front she was pre
sented with a large and beautiful boquet
which she received with evident delight.
We were told that it was from Mr. and
Mrs. S. W. Wheelock, who are old friends
of Miss Abbott and at whose house she
stopped eight years ago when her guitar
was her only companion.
In response to the encore she sang, with
much sweetness and sentiment "Auld
Ijang Syne." The applause which follow
ed this showed how the hearts of the peo
ple are thrilled by familiar and popular
music. The applause did not cease or
abate uutil Miss Abbott reappeared, when
she was presented with au immense and
exceedingly beautiful basket of flowers.
In a mass of immaculate white blossoms
were tho initials S. B. C-, representing ti e j
Sylvan Boat Club. On the side.in artistic
letters, of evergreen, were the initials E. A.
Emma Abbott. It was interesting to see
her turn and look at it that happy, satis
fied look was equal to a song. It was plac
ed in a conspicuous position on the piano,
and greatly admired by all. In response
to this second call Miss Abbott sang the
familiar old psalm"tune "Guide Me, Oh
Thou Great Jehovah." People who bad
heard it in church hundreds of times never
knew how it could affect their hearts till
then. Many au eye sparkled with a tear
and the audience I seemed melted by
The second part openedby a fpiano solo
"Invocation, Danse de Saturnalesf
from Massenet, by Mr. Case, .and in
response to an encore that gentleman won
fresh laurels in his wonderful manipulation
of the instrument, greatly delighting many
present who are considered critics of good
playing. No. 2 ofthe second part was by
Miss Abbott "Let Me Dream Again,'1
which, of course, was encored, when she
gave " Within a Mile of Sdinboro," to the
great delight of the audience. No 3 was
by Ferranti.an aria: Cenerentola" and 00
recall he gave a selection from "Gernfle
Gerofia" which so pleased the people that
he was compelled to repeat it. Brignoli
then sang "T'Amo," but gave no sign in
response to the encore. The old man was
tired aud probably wanted to go to bed.
The concert closed with the lively and
pleasing duet "La Figlia del Bcggi-
