The procuring an abundant sup
ply of water from artesian wolls has
proved of the greatest importance to
the French government. A short
time since a number of these wells
were bored in the Algerian desert,
and every one has become the
nucleus of a settlement proportioned
to the supply of water. Prof. MarBh
states that several nomadic tribes
had gathered around these artificial
water springs and planted 30,000
palm trees, turning the desert vicin
ity into an oasis. We uotice that the
senate passed a bill, the other day,
for the reclaiming of arid and waste
lands, in which there is a provision
authorizing the secretary of the in
terior to sink two artesian wells on
the plains east of the Rocky mountains.
Nunc'oAt Paddock.
The unfounded rumors of an at
tempt to supersede Paddock places
Governor Nance in a very delicate
position. Say what he will, or do
what he may, there aro friends who
insist that he should bo a candidate,
aud there aro others not so friendly,
who insist that be is a candidate
Fortunately Senator Paddock is a
man who cannot bo easily duped,
and we do not apprehend that be is
at all disturbed by the report. Pad
dock has many warm friends in
Nebraska, and his chances are good,
but if he is defeated it will not bo
tho fault of Governor Nance.
Some JNcws.
Tho above, appearing in an Osce
ola paper, may (or may not) be
supposed to come directly (or re
motely) from Govoruor Nance him
self. Whether we have in this
paragraph the Governor's own lan
guage or that of a bosom friend, it
seems strange that "unfounded ru
mors" should placo Mr. Nance in a
delicate, nay, in a Verydelicate posi
tion, if Mr. Nance does not intend,
under certain contingencies, to be a
candidate for senator against Mr.
Paddock. If he shouldn't be a can
didate; is not a candidate; or will
not be a candidate, wherein consists
the extreme delicacy of the situation ?
The game of politics, or rather the
contest for officers sometimes play
ed a little finer than there is any
necessity for, especially when the
situation is very delicate. Now, for
instance, it is presumable that Mr.
Nance may secure, withont much
trouble, his own renomination as
governor; if he intends trying for
that and that only, what conceivable
delicacy is there in the situation?
We can imagine no delicacy in the
Nauce situation except on the suppo
sition that while "there are others,
not so friendly, who insist that heft
a candidate,'' and "there are friends
who insist that he should be a can
didate," he himself might hesitate to
let go of the governorship before he
has a good hold on the senatorial
chair. The governor may some
times think that if he occupies the
gubernatorial chair two terms the
people may imagine the due meas
ure of his ambition is filled, and not
insist on thrusting upon him further
and higher honors ; while if he drops
now the lesser glory, he may secure
the greater, and thus, by anchoring
himself to a good star, in the eye of
tho on-gazing world, he may climb
to still higher ground.
The Journal desires to see Mr.
Paddock re-elected to the Senate,
because the Journal knows he has
done well for his constituency, and
believes that his power for good at
Washington is greater than that of
any new member would be. At the
same time we insist that by all
means the "very delicate position"
in which Mr. Nance (or his friend,)
says he is placed, be at once relieved
or mitigated, in some way or other.
Will Bro. Fleharty rise up and
elucidate make his wants and
wishes known?
This is the way tho B. & M. and
U. P. did it at Central City, and we
suppose that the L. & N. W. will
break tho line in a similar manner
one of these days. The Courier says :
"Last Tuesday the B. & M. crossed
tho U. P. in the presence of about
two hundred and fifty witnesses,
including workmen and citizens.
Tho general understanding among
the citizens had been that the junc
tion would bo made at night, but
the workmen, who had been laying
track from aboat a mile south of
town, reached the U. P. about four
o'clock, put in their frogs, and went
across as unooncernedly as though
they were at work on tho open prai
rie. Sheriff Hopkins, under instruc
tion of the U. P., served an injunc
tion upon them, but the injunction
beiug one that been already dissolv
ed the work progressed, and by Bix
o'clock a train of U. & M. cars had
crossed the U. P. track at Central
City, and made a settled faot the
Junction of the U. P. and B. & M.
railways. Injunction was served to
restrain the U. P. from tearing up
the crossing, and the B. & M. kept
watch all night.
Serious apprehensions prevailed
on tho 22d that the steamship "City
of Mexico" had been lost in the
severe storm that visited the gulf,
and that Gen. Grant and party bad
gone down with the steamer. There
was however great rejoicing at Gal
veston on the 23d, when the "City of
Mexico" was sighted, and iu a short
time entered the harbor, and Gen.
Grant and party disembarked. Deaf
ening cheers from the shores and
shipping, and a military salute from
the battery added to the welcome.
The Mayor and city officials, and
Gen. Ord's force formed a proces
sion, in which nearly all tho societies
of the city joined. A reception was
held at the hotel parlors, and the
banquet postponed until the even
ing of the 24th.
"We have staled our personal prefer
ence for Blaino as a president, but
wc believe now that Tilden will
surely be the candidate of the Dem
ocrats, and the whole history of the
last presidential campaign thunders
in the ears of Republicans "nomi
nate a candidate who will carry the
country without a doubt." The
electoral commission, and the final
count of 185 to 184, by whioh Hayes
stepped into the White Honse, muBt
not be repeated if the party can
prevent it. Let republicans lay aside
nrere personal preferences, and unite
on a good man, who will certainly
win.
Tue Journal building at Boston
was burned Sunday evening. The
loss is estimated at $30;C00.
