The fire criminated from a stove-pipe. Loss
about $300.
IUftisg Halting had been suspended
on account of the low water, but this ( Wed
ue.day) morning, there is a high rafting
flood." TherJ is, however, but little timber
;.. run, as most of it got off on the last flood.
The Weather. The prevailing mild air,
and the slight rain on Tuesday, have had
I-eiit to start vegetation from its long
'jer, and already the fields look quite
.rein. We anticipate a favorable, as well
y early season.

uenkral jail ueliverv. Hie Ameri
can Standard, (Uniontown,) says : "A few
nights ago we had another exit of prisoners.
Escapes have become so general of late that
we did not think it worth while to mention
all of them, but to show what a smart Sher
iff we have, we relate the following : The
Sheriff went into the jail to attend to some
business, but forgot to lock the door after
him. He had occasion to go into a cell, and
while in there the prisoners pulled the door
shut and bolted it, which made the Sheriff
a prisoner, and before he could give the
alarm they had all escaped, and have not
since been heard ofl We give them credit. "
Correspondence of the "Joumnal."
Forest City, March 30, 18G7.
Dear Kow: This beautiful morning
finds me still alive and able to digest fat
prairie lowls and ginger bread and hoping
that a good appetite and plenty to eat and
drink may be the happy lot of all hands,
"and cook," of the Journal ; and may they
always be able to supply spicy rations for the
whole nest of "Snaix." When the great
doctor of the reptile race has ceased to
squirm, after being swallowed up in his own
greatness, may the Journal yet live to re
cord the death of the last yellow spotted
The Cop3 of Nebraska are in a terrible
dileu.ma ju-t now. Their every day prayer
is "nigger;" they swear "nigger," talk
"nigger," and their every thought is "nig
ger,'' and yet they -can scarcely think of
swallowing the less dnngerous dose of "nig
ger votes." On the State Constitution
question they have succumbed at last. Good
reason, eh '!
This has been the longest, sevarest and
closest winter that has been experienced
here since that of 1856 7, snew lying, at
times, to the depth of from 1:? to 16 inches
in the vicinity of Omaha and the lower
Piatte. And West of the lOUth meredian
from 4 to JO feet deep; the snow never
having entirely disappeared from the raviues
and other drifted localities since the begin
ning of the present year, but the weather
tor the last few days has been very uiiid,
and the snow is fast disappearing under the
warm rays of the sud, and from present
prospects the grouud will be sufficiently dry
and warm for thereception of seeds iu a
short time.
Emigrants ale pouring into this coustry
of promise at a rate far in excess of any
former period since my arrival here, and I
hesitate not. to predict that our population,
in a year hence, will be near two hundred
thousand. There are comparatively few
who are not fully satisfied with the country
in general, and proceed to make it their
home and abiding place. A few, however,
are disappointed, and they invariably prove
to be such as started westward with hopes
and expectations wrought up by an imagina
tion bred with fiction, and after tasting a
reality, founded on principles of reason,
they become discouraged and return, to
clothe a country that will not enrich a sloth
ful man, in the darkest shades of disgust.
There is but little doiug on the Union
Pacific liai'road, as yet, but the company
expect to commence operations in the course
of a few weeks. The locality for the bridge
across the Missouri lliver has not yet been
fully decided on, but the present prospects
indicate its location at Bellvue, the- county
seat of Sarpy county, and will, consequently,
leave Omaha to be supplied by a switch or
branch road.
The populace of Nebraska are strongly in
favor of the removal of the State Capitol to
a more central part ot the State, probably
Lancaster City or Fremont, but this may
not occur for a few years yet. Prices of
produce are tending upward, and are as fol
lows : Wheat, $1 40 (4 $1 60 ; corn, 65
80o pr. bu. ; bats, 5 (rf 60c ; potatoes, per
bu., ?2 00 $2 50; rye, $1 10: eggs, per
doz. . 30c ; butter, per lb 45 55c ; bacon,
15 0c. Dry goods are slightly on the
decline since the iron horse has again re
sumed his journe3Ts to and from the eastern
markets. Groceries are also declining in
r rices, and more rapidly than dry goods,
jutnber is being shipped to Omaha, and
prices falling at a rapid rate, but as there
will be an unprecedented demand for that
article, the coming season, it may. not de
cline as rapidly as the consumers might
desire. Prices for the present are as fol
lows: white pine flooring, ready worked,
$75 00 (? $30 00, per m ; siding, planed,
$40 $45 U0 ; paneling, $95 (w, $100 00 ;
culled lumber, pine, $45 - $50 00 ; cotton
wood lumber of all descriptions, $20 $27
00 ; walnut $37 $42 00 ; maple flooring,
$40 00 ; Basswood siding, $25 Qt. $30 00,
per m feet ; cord wood, delivered at railroad,
$6 (m $S 00 per cord. Wages are good for
all kinds of work and range about as follows :
brick layers, $4 $6 00 per day ; plaster
ers, $500 per day; carpenters. $3 50
$4 00 per day ; blacksmiths $4 ( $5 00 per
day; all other tradesmen at proportionate
rates. Day laborers, $1 50 to $3 00 per day
according to labor and board arrangements;
month lalwir on farms ranges from $20 to
$35 00 per month ;. boys, of from fourteen
to twenty years, also demand good waees on
farms, ranging from $13 to $25 00 per
month. Respectfully yours,
The Newman (Georgia) Herald says that
two widows and their families in Cowell
countv, occupying the same house, were re
duced to such destitution as to compel an
allowance of only three mouthfuls of corn
hread at each meal. In consequence, one
one person has perished from starvation,
Burned t: Death. The York Irue
vemncnit says : A sad and painful accident
took place in New street, in our borouffh.on
uuoy rvpru oiiuvy wuicn a nttie girl agea
about ten years, the daughter of a widow
lady by the name of Leader, was so badly
burned as to occasion her death twenty-four
iiours afterwards. Ihe mother, it seems,
who at times coes out to work for ot hnr peo
ple, had left the girl at home to take care of
two smaller children, and had given them
some walnuts to crack for their amusement
and entertainment. Having done this and
taken out the kernels she attempted to
throw the shells from her apron into the
fire, when it caught from a spark in the
stove, and in a few moments her whole
clothing was in flames. The ffirl ran crying
into the yard, and attempted to get out on
the street through the eita. when her
shrieks attracted the attention of some of
the neighbors, who arrived, however, too
late to save the little sufferer. Her clothing
was burned entirely from her body, and she
presented a pitiful and heart-rending spec
tacle. She lingered until the next day,
when death relieved her of her sufferings.
Much sympathy is felt in the neighborhood
for the widowed mother, who is overwhelm
ed with grief at her sad and terrible be
reavement. . .

This great medicine cured Dr. J. H. Schenck.
the proprietor, of Pulmonary Consumption, when
it had assumed its most formidable aspect, and
when speedy death appeared to be inevitable,
ii is physicians pronounced his case incurable.--when
he commenced the use of this simple but
powerful remedy. His health was restored in a
verv short time, and no return of the disease has
been apprehended, for all the symptoms quick'y
disappeared, and his present weight is more than
two hundred pounds.
Since his recovery. he has devoted his attention
exclusively to the cure of consumption. nd the
diseaf.es which are usually complicated with it.
and the cures effected by bis medicines have bean
very numerousand truly wonderful. Dr. Schenck
makes professional visits to several of the larger
cities weekly, where he has a large concourse in
patients, and it is truly astonishing to see poor
consumptives that have to be lifted out of their
carriages, and in a lew nionins neaitny, roousi
persons. Dr Schenck s Pulmonic Syrup, sea-.
Weed Tonic, and Mandrake Pills are generally
aU required in curing consumption Full direc
tions accompany each, so that any one can take
them without seeing Dr. Schenck, but when it is
convenient it is best to see him. He gives advice
free, but for a thorough examination with his
Respiroineter his fee is three dollars.
Please observe, when purchasing, that the twQ
likenesses of the Doctor one when in the las
stage of consumption, and the other as he now is.'
in perfect health are on the Gouernment stamp.
