It is fresh in the mind of our readers how the slaughtered men, Mitchell and Ketcluun came to their denths. How they were tortured mid scorched, bnked and burned, for the gratification of lawless devils who have invaded this country for the past few years, all pcisons have been informed. This is not the only crime committed by them, but many others, never chronicled, have in all probability been committed, un known to any others but their se cret bands. But this last one capped the climax, and was the straw which broke the camel's back, and fired the people to such a height of indigna tion that they vowed eternal ven geance, and to rid the country of their niggardly presence soon, be came a study, which at Inst has been mastered, aud the fruits of their labors accomplished. Private par ties have been actively engaged in tracing the matter, and gaining evi dence by which the participants in this crime, black aud damning as hell itself, could be brought to jus tice and dealt with according to the severest penalties of the law. That the law cannot deal with them strong enough, is acknowledged by many, but that it can lengthen its arm aud grasp all is unquestioned. After thoroughly working up the case, Attorney-General Dilworlh, sent word to litis city, that everything was cocked and primed, and the birds were to be had for their tak ing, immediately a posse ot our staunch and reliable citizens, an swered the call, boarded the nine o'clock oxpresson the Union Pacific Railroad Saturday night, well arm ed, and bound for the scene of action, Plum Creek, where Olive and his gang were garrisoned, and, as was supposed, well lixed lor a hearty and warm reception. This proved to be only a supposition, as all the parties captured were unarmed and unaware, thinking their braggadocio and bull-dozing, had completely cowed and intimidated the people and lhe would go on in the even tenor of their way, unmolested and uncared for. This, also, has proved to be but a fable, and they u ho once declared there "was not enough men in the country to lake them," now stand as criminals, shackled by the mighty arm of the law ami stern justice, to await the "coming events which always cast their shadows before them." One week ago yesterday, Law rence L. Ketchum, brother of the burned man, filed an information against these parties, and Judge Gasliu issued three warrants for their arrest. From that time the three brothers have been untii-in" in their work, and the timely aid of Attorney-General Dilworth, whose life was also unsafe in that commu nity, was a timely helper in their capture. The General has been qui etly working on the case for some time, aud lias spared no pains to take any evidence which would lead to their capture and conviction. The parties who went to Plum Creek to effect the arrest, intended starting yesterday (Sunday) morn ing, but a dispatch irom theie in formed them to come at once, as Olive and his party intended mov ing Sunday morning. Everything was at once prepared, and the nec essary precaution indulged in, and when the time came for their de parture on the errand of mercy for the safety of the people, so quickly was it done that few, if any of our citizens, knew they had gone. They landed at Plum Creek late at night and at once started for a saloon where they supposed Olive and his men were holding rendezvous. They were met on the way by a gentleman of Plum Creek, who sent them a roundabout way to a private residence, where they were warmly welcomed by a large squad of citi zens, well armed, and ready for the conflict. A consultation was held which ended in establishing a way to work to the best advantage. It was then supposed they had taken up their quarters at Olive's private residence, and they at once tele graphed to Kearney for more help, which was answered by eight men and sixteen needlo guns; these last parties did not leave Kearney until five o'clock Sunday morning, arriv ing iu Plum Creek some timo after the arrests had been made. After sending this dispatch a picket was sent out to skirmish, and soon re ported that the men were "puttiug up at the hotel kept by John Bald win." A new course of action was then agreed upon, and the parlies started out for their prey. Just at break of day they captured John Baldwin, at his houe, while he was building a fire. A tramp was in the house, and to keep him silent, he was also arrested, but afterwards released, he having filled hifi uiisi-ion. Myron Brown was next told to throw up his hands, and submit himself to the commands of the offi cer; was caught in the post office. Barney Armstrong, who was wounded in the foot at Loup City, some time since, was next in order at the post office, and when told to throw up his hand-, drew up a re volver, but soon lowered it. and had one hand placed iu shackels, refus ing the other, when J. K. Mowry told Ketchum to handcuff him. lie then saw the fallacy of resistance, and submitted. The leader of the gang, I. P. Olive, was caught in the post office. lie was hunting a doctor, aud had just found one, and stepped into the post office to inform him of his er rand, when he looked down the cold barrel of a needle gun. and was or dered to surrender. When corner ed, he was introduced to the boys, as "these arc the two Ketchum box s." He replied, "that's all right." The Messrs. Ketchum then hand cuffed him, and the better part of tin" work was accomplished. Fisher, Olive's hostler, was caught on the street, aud came to hand cuffs very readily. The "Kid," as he is called, was hauled in from the streets, and prop erly cared for next. Green was next captured while in bed, just after day, being entirely unprepared for unwelcome guests at that time of day. John Gatliu, a herder was arrest ed at Elm Creek, as they were com ing to this city. A'ter they were arrested they were chained together by pairs, as follows : I. P. Olive, the leader, and Win. Green, the saloon keeper who lur nished the whisk v to carrv with the piisoucrs on their road to Custer county, were chained together. Then John Baldwin, the hotel keeper who harbored these men, and M ron Brown, one of Olive's men, made a pair. Fisher, Olive's hostler, traveled side by side with Barney Armstrong the boss herder of Olive's cattle. Then came the "Kid," and John Gatlin, each iu single file. Gatliu was the last one to be arrested, and was hustled off pretty lively, not taking time to link them together. All were then taken to the depot at Plum Creek aud heavily guarded until the arrival of the extra coining east. As they were properly dispos ed of, and ironed to prevent escape, the citizens of Plum Creek congrat ulated the captors, and some re marked they would now throw away their guns, as they had no further ne ror them. The citizens of this place rendered all the aid within their power, and too much praise cannot be given them for their ready action in time of need. Olive denied ever saying there was not enough men iu the State to take him, and said they must take him for a terrible bold, bad man. One of the men remarked to him they thought he never said it, and judging from the quiet manner in which they were taken, not even a shot being fired, wc should judge he rather overestimated his power. When starting from Plum Creek, Olive asked that he bo protected Irom mob violence, and be allowed a fair and impartial trial, expressing grave fears that something would he done not in accordance with the law. His fears proved groundless, as a more peaceful, quiet aud law abiding crowd was never before congregated in a body. They were safely lodged iu the court house to await their preliminary examina tion, which will be given, in ail probability, to-daj. On leaving the train in Kearney some of them changed color. Mr. Olive becom ing greatly agitated, while Green turned deathly pale, and looked as though he had passed through some terrible siege of distress. He was the only person in the entire party that seemed to fully realize the en ormity of the crime of which he was accused as an accessor. "We are reliably Informed that proof can now be attained by which the parties can be convicted, us a great many know of tho working of their plans, but feared the men who were charged with the crime like death, before their arrest. And, uow that the burden of their fears have been handed over to the law, wc hope to hear a complete string of evidence which will convict aud rid the State of their lawless pres ence. For a common, law abiding people to be cursed by a set of des peradoes, aud not allowed to pro tect their own lives, is a disgrace to any country, and to have them cared for by the proper uuthorities.should bo cause for rejoicing, aud the dawning of a brighter era, when homesteaders may be allowed to make their homes iu a free land, and live without the fear of being murdered in cold blood, should they incur the displeasure of these men, can be hailed with joy. The arrested parties are all hale, stout men, and seem to have been schooled to this especial work, their countenances showing the lack of feeling customary to men who are schooled fora better purpose. Olive is a man about five feet ten inches high, black hair aud eyi-s, black mustache and chin whiskers and has a scared, hardened look which bespeaks quarters for no man in curring his displeasure. He does not say a word as to whether he knows anything of the late burning or not, but keeps his own counsel, iu regard to the matter, throughout. A guard was placed in the court house to prevent the attempt of any parties from rescuing the prisoners, some fears being expressed that the cow boys would raid the towu and release them. These fears are alto gether groundless, for there was no one left to communicate with the cattle ranche on the Loup, and even if there was, the time consumed iu going there and returning to Kear ney would necessarily require two days' travel, allowing them only ample time to get here some time to-day, Monday. We do not expect any violence from this quarter io long as the prisoners are handled by the law, but if mob law had been resorted to we would say, be on your guard, for blood calls for blood, and already three victims have been killed for grudge, or spite, and 6hould the matter be carried through on this score, every man would need a body guard to insure the safety of property and life. The parties from Kearney who so successfully succeeded iu the cap ture of these men are named as follows: Lawrence L. Ketchum, Loran L. Ketchum, Herbert Ketchum, J. K. Mowry, B. F. Mowry, Shep herd, aud Samuel Snow. The par ties who assisted at Plum Creek, we do not know, and could not learn their names, but understand they acted in unison with the crowd, showing a willing disposition to do all in their power to rid that country of the worst set of men ever known in a country. Xow that the pris oners are sale, Lawrence Ketchum and J. K. Mowry will start for Loup City this (Monday) morning, to meet a body there, who will accom pany them to the ranche of I. P. Olive to arrest parties there who are supposed to know something of the manner iu which these men were condemned to die. Three men fiom Clay county are in hot pursuit of Gillan, and will in all probability bring him to Kear ney some time to-day. They are named Wm. Young, Calvin Melvin and Will Curring. Dufrend lit out for Omaha Saturday morning, hav ing smelled a mice, and thinking it was getting rather hot for safety. Telegrams were at once sent out, and we hope he will be picked up before he reaches some secretive Hbode, and await his time to return and pick off the men who have been instrumental in bringing these par ties to justice. There is no fear of the escape of any of the parties, as they have been handcuffed and chained, and a guard is kept sufficiently strong to withstand any attack made upon them and sentinels kept on the watch to inform the people if any trouble should occur. Whether they will be detained in Kearney, or elsewhere, we cannot say, but it is altogether probable some disposi tion will be made of them to secure their safety from violence or the interference of outside parties who may be their friends. At this writing, midnight, every thing is quiet and serene, no stir whatever, on the streets, and ail nature seemingly wrapped in the arms of morpheus, to abide the com ing of the morning's sun, and bear the doings of the time they slum bered. The citizens are confident no demonstrations will be made toward violence, and the law will he allowed to use its most stringent terms. So mote it be; and we are proud to think our citizens are not so depraved as to totally disregard the right, and use the means to pun ish the prisoners, they themselves used iu torturing their helpless vie- tims. 7l earney Nonpareil, Jan. 6th Girl .Should be Taulit Prnc ticul lioutekeiins'. Not long siuco we were told of a ! young lady who, on graduating, took the first honors as a brilliant scientific aud chemical scholar. She was preparing to teach, or intend ing iu some way to turn her educa tion to pecuniary profit. She was supposed to be thorough iu chem istry, but when required to give a practical demonstration of this knowledge, to put it to the test in common every-day affairs, she was as helpless as a child. She had at her tongue's end the rules. The nomenclature of chemistry was per fectly familiar; but why such terms were used, what they really signi fied, were to her an unkowu tongue. Unhappily this superficial education is very common. What is now needed is to be sure that our pri mary teachers arc competent to instruct our little girls iu a practic- . , . . . ui iiiiiuiiui in nit; m? i nut- princi ples of domestic economy, aud that mothers co-operate in this part of l . .' . their daughters' education, keeping a sharp watch that the teacher is earnest iu her instruction. If this important part is made to go hand iu hand with what is called the " higher branches," young ladies' schools aud colleges will be multi plied, aud our daughters educated near home where the mother can watch over the health and practical improvement of her girls. Every thing marches on rapidly iu our country, and if this union of prac tical aud literary education is set iu operation, it will spread all over the land. Once secure such ser viceable knowledge for our girls and it will never die out. Then the housekeepers and mothers fur nished by the rising generation will understand how abundant provision and choice material may be wisely used, not wasted through lack of knowledgo and skill to prepare them in tho most healthful and agreeable manner; and through them we may hope for that good time coming, when our hotels, even tho simplest, will be oases of de lightful rest for weary, with tables neatly furnished and amply sup plied with tempting food to make glad the heirt of the wanderer.

Once on the pavement, he danced a sort of double shuffle all around the curb stone, and then raced dowu the street in great haste, for it was evident by the books under his arm he was going to Echool.
