for the Advertiser, and receieve and re
ceipt fur monies therefor.
Persons resident in this Territory, coming from rarions
portions of the States, often suggest to us the names of
persons in their old neiKhborboods, who would doubtless
become subscribers if they could see a copy of the "Ad
rertiHcr." We always send a specimen copy, and persons
receiving, will consider it a solicitation to become a regu
lar subscriber. .,.
Postmasters and others, feeling suffleient interest to
make up aclub, can retain the usual per cent for their
rj-Terrltorial Warrants and Nemaha County Orders
drawing interest will be taken at par in payment for
atehtedness to this Otfice..
E-micss notified at the close of the Volume to dis
continue the "Advertiser," we shall take it for granted
that subscribers wish their paper continued, and shall
' accordingly continue to send as heretoiore.3

being an increase of 99,566 00.
This year 1857 the total amount of
taxable property is $450,264 50, the
increase being 275,718 50. The

Members of the last Leglslat are.
We learn that Mr. P. C. Sullivan,
of Washington, will contest the seat
of Mr. Cooper ; and also, that Mr.
Perkins of the same county will con
test the seat of Mr. Peterson.
There is matter worthy of note in
the above result, viz; but five members
are returned who voted for that
Capitol Bill. We venture the assertion
that were all the features of that Bill
tho machinery and motives which
brought it into existence, and governed
it, known, not ten men in Nebraska
would vote for it.
"What can we do to abolish
tippling houses in our midst?" "Do
not the proprietors of such establish
ments know that they are doing wrong
that there are more honorable,
agreeable and lucrative modes of gain
inz a livelihood all around them?"
"Why don't you, Mr. Editor, pitch into
them?" These and many other similar
questions are put to us daily by citizens,
not only by those professing to be
temperance men,, but by those, too,
who frequently indulge in the use of
the "critter," some of them to excess.
Our notions upon this subject may
differ from those of very many per
haps, are singular. Yet they are our
honest convictions. We have all our
life looked upon certain evils which
"afflict mankind" as uneradicable-
They have been fastened upon us from
time immemorial, and we believe will
never be wholly got rid of. We class
sin, whisky, gambling, negroes and wild
cat banks in the same category. They
are, and truly to be lamented, permanent
fixtures, and in our opinion, all we can
reasonably expect to do is to govern
them as closely and rigidly as public
opinion will warrant. And we do not
believe the wisest plan is to "pitch in"
to them. We believe the liquor law
in this Territory is entirely too rigid,
so much so that it amounts only to
"a dead letter" upon the Statute Books.
No attention whatever is paid to it.
We believe a milder Uw would have
an effect for good. Believing thus,
we have already prepared a bill for an
act regulating and governing the sale
of intoxicating liquors in this Terri
tory, which we intend to present at
the coming Session of the Legislature.
It provides that the County Courts
and corporate town or city authorities
may license a given number of houses
on the payment of a liberal license
fee and giving heavy bonds for damages
that may arise from tho sale of intox
icating Jiquors. Personally we are
opposed to the sale of spirituous
liquors by the drink. And yet policy,
in this, as in many other matters, would
seem to dictate to "make the best of
a bad bargain." We repeat, therefore,
that we think a license law would
operate for good.
The County Commissioners at their
last session levied the following tax :
ifor county purposes, 3 mills on the dol.
" school " 1 1-2 " " " "
" road " 1-2" "
The territorial tax is 3 " "
Making a total of 8 " "
What the indebtedness of the county
is, or what is the necessary amount of
money to be raised wc have not learned.
We presume, however, the assessment
is sufficient to meet the demands.
While we are young and feeble nothing
more in out opinion should be aimed
There is one matter connected with
our county expenses, we are here re
minded of, and to which we earnestly
and respectfully call the attention of
tax payers.- We have on our hands a
runaway crippled negroe, awaiting his
trial at next term of court, costing the
county seven dollars andfifly cents per
day. Is there no way by which "a
call or special term can be had, and
we get rid of this enormous burthen.
We think if Judge Black was made
acquainted with the facts in the case
there would be no difficulty in getting
at the matter.
A correspondence has taken place
between our Government and that of
England, concerning the possessions
of the Hudson's Bay Company south
of the forty-ninth parallel of latitude?
and within the Territories of Wash
ington and Oregon. By the treaty of
1846, the right of sovereignty over
his territory was declared to be in the
United States : the Hudson's Bay
Company assert that their rights of
property are the same as before.
Servants of the Company have put iri
claims to portions of this land under
grants to settlers, made by our Gov
ernment. The controversy must be
settled by negotiations with the Eng
Up to the time of going to
press we have no particulars from the
Kansas election. We only learned
that the election passed off quietly,
and we presume those at all conversant
with Kansas matters s could readily
guess the result.
Secretary Cobb The Money Crisis.
The Secretary of the Treasury has
done the community of marchants,
bankers and other business people a
real service through the present trial
in money affairs. He has promptly
and studiously for thirty days past,
shaped the government disbursements
to the largest measure of pecuniary
relief. We have seldom known a
public functionary, under similar cir
cumstances to manifest so much prac
tical sympathy. We had occasion
early in July to commend tho timely
disbursements made from the New
York Sub-Treasury, when it was an
ticipated that the first acumulation
under the new tariff might work in
convenience to the bankers. "But the
measures taken since the close of
August have been doubly valuable,
and ought not to fail of proper com
mendation. On the 24th August, when the panic
began in this City by the failure of
the Ohio Trust, the Sub-Treasury held
twelve millions and a half ,of dollars
in gold of the twenty-two and a half
millions in the City the bank having
lost heavily the previous week by ex
port to Europe. Seeing that our banks
would be greatly strengthened by con
centrating the Government disburse
ments at this point, and by promptly
auditing and paying the special and
general appropriations of Congress,
which were made to take effect after
thelst day of July, Mr. Cobb has
reduced his balance in New York to
the amount of 2,750,000, nearly
every dollar of which went into bank.
The consequence is that to-day the
position of the specie held by the Sub
Treasury and the banks i3 completely
reversed, and tthe latter afforded the
utmost relief the Secretary .could
arrange for under the law.
These disbursements will be rapidly
continued. Mr. Cobb determined, a
few days since, to reduce the premium
which he is paving on the public stocks,
unless they are" sent in forthwith for
redemption. His desire is to distribute
his balances, as far as they can be ap
propriated to this object, to the best
public advantage, and at the earliest
day possible to afford relief to the money
market. The new order is, that up to
the 1st of November he will continue
to pay sixteen per cent, premium and
the accrued interest for the bonds and
certificates of loan of 1867-68. After
that date he will reduce the premium
to fourteen per cent. One or more of
our leading Savings Banks, we learn,
will avail of this notice at once, and
having the opportunity to reinvest in
New York State Stocks to advantage
will send on their United States bonds
and certificates for the higher premium
The operation will be equal to so much
gold transferred from the Sub-Treasury
to active banking use. '
There are other movements of the
Secretary which have come under our
notice tentling t similar relief, though
of less importance. The whole effect
has been to popularize the Sub-Treasury
system, in a season of severe
pecuniary trial, and to afford a degree
of substantial aid to business for which
the pnblic are largely indebted to the
practical sense of the head of the
Treasury department. N. Y. Times.
Delegate from Nebraska. The
election of Judge Ferguson as delegate
to Congress from this Territory is the
cause of much rejoicing among the
National men of that vigorous young
(soon to be) State. The Judge is a
very superior man and a sterling Dem
ocrat, and will ably represent his con
stituents in Congress. The defeat and
utter overthrow of Chapman, shows
how true the Democracy of the Ter
ritory are to the principles of the
National Democracy of the Union.
