What the programme; of the , session
will be. none as yet know. Some of the
fire-eaters are feeling around, as to what
are the prospects of success should the
Capitol question again be agitated. , The
members very generally are, I am confi
dent, opposed to that agitation. There
may. be, however, a short spat over it
toward the close of the session.
Two or three important measures cf a
general nature are being talked over,
viz: a substitute for our- present school
law; a licence law; and a homesteadlaw.
I look upon the three as of , vast impor-
.tance to the people of this Territory. Of
the two former I have heretofore . said
considerable, and it is therefore unnec
essary now to recapitulate.
A liberal homestead law will fill the
place of the general stay or bankrupt
law of which we spoke some weeks ago,
and of which much has been said through
out the Territory. It would offer all in
ducements necessary to encourage emi
gration; afford sufficient protection and
prove creditable. . It would also have a
very great tendency to decrease the credit
system, the less of which we can have the
better for us. ;
.A change of Postmaster at this city has
. been made. Mr. Wtmas of the Times
has been 'removed, and Mr. Robertson

ts ancy. C F.
J ' The Legislature.
: This body met on Tuesday the 7thinst.
.From what we can hear they are deter
mined to do something for the people at
large this session, and discountenance
private" speculation, whicn has heretofore
taken the precedence of public good.
. The representation from this county is of
the right stripe is energetic and will
. faithfully attend to the wants of the peo
ple. We think Nemaha county, may well
feel proud or her representatives and sa
tisfied that her interests will not suffer
in such hands. ' "
Would any one believe,' without look
ing into it, that we are in a fair way of
carrying the number of sovereign States
originally thirteen, and now thirty-one,
. to forty-seven? But so ir is. In the first
place, there are Oregon, Kansas and
Minnesota, whose constitutions are alrea
dy formed or forming. . It is hoped they
will be admitted the coming winter, mak
; jr. the members of the confederacy thir-
ly-fcur." Then New Mexico, Nebraska,
and Washington, already thriving Terri
tories, will swell the aggregate to thirty
seven. Four new States 10 be carved
.cut of Texas, according to provisions in
the treaty cf annexation, will give us for-
ty-cne. Two additional States demanded
from the area now included in California
wodd make forty-three. Arizona, Neo
sho, Dacotah and Columbus Territories
carry us to forty-six. ' And lovely Utah
will be the forty-seventh to "lend to that
fair circle the grace of her form and the.
lightness cf her step."

The English In India.
The India news are the cause of re
joicing, not only in England, but in every
heart which sympathizes with the victims
of, the inhuman savages who raised the
standard of revolt. And it is refreshing
to contemplate the speedy overthrow of
the barbarous rebels and the cessation of
cruelties inflicted upon the unfortunate
English residents who chanced to fall in
to the murderous hands of the rebels.-

ISt37. 'Delhi is fallen!' Wis the
Times, the mighty thunderer of British
Tyranny,. One hundred thousand under
lings of. the press in England re-echo
the howl. Fast ships and telegraph wires
carry the news across the Atlantic. 'Delhi
is fallen !' screams the New York Tribune;
the thousand and one small fry of freedom
screamers, repeat the cry 'till in every
household the ominous word 'Delhi is fal
len' is' repeated. ' Pious political parsons
slowly lift up their eyes to heaven and
thank God that the foul India rebels are
put down by the good sword of England,
and that missionaries, backed by that good
sword, Bible in hand, can still preach to
the poor native "Obey the powers that be,
for all power is from above."
1776. The ominous cry was heard in
London 'New York is fallen !' the foul
previncian rebels more savage than the
red Indian are no more. Clinton has for
ever silenced that audacious rebel Wash
ington, and no doubt it was refreshing to
contemplate that his body would soon
dangle from the . gibbet in High-Gate.
The aews was the cause of rejoicing not
only in'-Engiand, but in the hearts of
certain German princes who sympathized
with her in the shape of 17,000 men, to
put down the inhuman savages whs raised
the standard of revolt. Success has (thank
God) crowned the American rebels
God grant that history shall record the
same tale of the native east Indian.
Their cause is the same. Let us see :
. Two centuries ago, India, after a long
period of anarchy, reposed pacified and
prosperous under Abkar, her mighty ru
ler, of whom a deputation of Rajputs
speaks to Aurung-zeb : "Your royal an
cestor Akbar, whose throne is now in
heaven, conducted the affairs of the em
pire durinap -han fifty years with
justice, watcL sfce- repose and hap-
piness of all elates -of his subjects, wheth
er they were followers of Jesus, or-of
Moses, or of Man, or of Mahomed ; he
caused them all to partake alike of his
care and protection. And thence it was
that all these peoples grateful for his
protection-united in calling him the guar
dian of Humanity.' And thus was India
governed with a. father's care until, about
eighty years ago, the king, of Delhi thro'
kindness gave the English liberty to trade
with his people. They , then bought the
village of Calcutta as a. trading, port, ana
having thus acquired a foothold, by re
peated acts of aggression went on to rob
the native princes of, their1 property and
the king of his dominions. ' As it was of
Delhi, so it . was of all India. We might
now ask with F. de - Lanoye, a French
gentleman who travelled through British
India : "Has the British government been
a benefit for the present generation of its
subjects? '(With him also we can answer
no, and assert that, now after eighty years
of supremacy,- it has been careless of eve
rything, but rflatters of importations, : ex-
portations, monopolies and profits, oppres
sed and exhausted India to such a point
that the cry of the poor natives in Bengal
Oh! pity, we die of hunger !' No
wonder then the old man and the infant
child sigh' for their ancient rajahs and
hate England with a holy hatred. Have
they not cause ? Indeed they have, for
the greater portion of the Hindoos are
compelled by their rulers to cultivate a
certain portion of the soil and, pay a cer
tain amount of rent to their masters ; and
so exorbitant is this rent that it leaves the
cultivator not enough to live on, and he
often applies to be exempt from tilling -the
soil. But his application; is in vain (for
opium has to be raised to demoralise the
Chinese) and a few lashes from the con?
stable's rod, and a wholesome fear, of be
jinjpui in a. chan-gang fprsix .m'onths tb
work"the roads generally ensure" his com
pliance. The rent day comes round ; from some
cause he is unable to pay; an officer sword
in hand places "himself athis doot and
allows himi his wife or children neither
food, sleep or water till the rent is paid.
The result is he has to sell the only thing
left to $uppof t life ,to meet, this cruel de-.
mand, and besides has to' pay the" officer
for every day he watched at his door and
deprived him aiuTfamily of food. What
cruelty ! enough to foment one hundred
rebellions, not to mention the almost dai
ly, amusement of Queen's troops (God
bless her) 'of ramming natives into their
cannons and shooting them off.
The wailing of his father,: mother, bro
thers and sisters, pierced the heart of the
Sepoy, and he unsheathed tis sword to
cut down their oppressor, Small .indeed
is the ' spark of human freedom : in the
breast of him who would not say,' God
speed .that sword. Now England seeks
Christian aidand, sympathy from all
Christian people, forgetting to inform the
world that the massacre at Delhi was not
a massacre of Christians but of the Eng
lish rf or the natives do not look on . the
English as such, at all. .
This has already run beyond the limits

When tind and lov'd ones pass away.
But, oh, the feelings who'll define,
When thinkiug of our child at play.
Our mind returns to scenes that's past,
When she was present sweet and mild;
But earthly joys they cannot last
Death took from us our darling child.
She lov'd the flowers of spring wheu few,
Ard summer never had too many;
And in the fall like flower ithd leaf,
She fell to earth my gentle Annie.
