Holley, re ported the following, the first five and three last of which were unanimoasly adepted, and the balance withdrawn by the committee. Resolved, That we affirm the Cincin nati platform of 1856, in its letter and spirit, , without change or obliteration. Resolved, That an early organization cf . the Democratic Party in Nebraska Territory, is demanded alike by the pre cedents of the past, and-the requirements of the future. Resolved, That in organizing tin party in this Territory, upon a common plat form, we will literally know neither North, Scuth, East, or West, but will extend the hand of fellowship to all Democrats who adhere to the principles and organization of the party, whether they reside North or South of the Platte, or in any other section of our vast and extended Terri tory, Resolved, That no better day could have been selected than the anniversary of th glorious eighth of January, 1815 for the natal morn of the Nebraska Demo cracy Resolved, That the principles of pop ular sovereignty, set forth in the organic act, is the vital element of Democracy, an! cannot be and is not rejected by any birth with our sister Territory, and inher ltinga common legacy, under the-benen cient provisions of the Nebraska-Kansas act, the Democracy of this Territory can not fail to feel a common' sympathy with whatever may affect the weal or darken the future of Kansas. Resolved, That as government can only derive its just powers from the consent of the governed, no constitution for a state orgrnizatibn can be binding upon the peo ple to be governed by it, except by their full, fair, and untrammelled concurrence and ratification. Resolved, That the people in organiz ing their State government have the same right to mould all their other domestic institutions, as to mould that one of slavery. Resolved, That so far we look upon the administration 'of James Buchanan as the correct exponent of Democratic principles and while mnenn on the score of expe diency from its recent exposition upon the Lecompton constitution, we have an abid ing conlidence in its honesty and fidelity to democratic principles, and look forward to no event which will impair that confi dence cr release us from our allegiance. Resolved, That in order to consummate the final organization of the Democratic party in the Territory, this 'meeting do recommend to the party in every county xo noid primary meetings in their respec tive county seats, on the .second Monday of May, 1S5S, or at such other time as may suit their , convenience, and to elect one delegate for each member such coun ty may be entitled to in the Legislature, to meet at a general Democratic Territo rial Convention, to be held at Plattsmouth in Cass county on. the first . Thursday of June, 1S5S. , Resolved, That the' Chair appoint a committee of seven to draft an address to the Democrats of the Territory; : also committee of three to correspond with the leaning Jjemocrats of each county.

F. Kinney, Hon. O. P. Richardson, J. C. Turk, Esq., Judge. Holly, Judge Black, B. P. Rankin, and others. On motion, the convention adjourned. J. F. KINNEY, Pres't. , J. Howard, Secretary. v. of the Select Committee of the Council in relation to the Capitol Building aud Grounds in Omaha City,' JVe " . Iraska Territory. ' The Select Committee appointed to in vestigate the condition of the Territorial Capitol building, respectfully beg leave to report : : That they have made as thorough an investigation of the (subject as their op portunities would permit ; that they have examined the Hon. Secretary of the Ter ritory, (the. present Acting Governor,) and also the Hon. Jesse Lowe, Mayor, of the City of Omaha, -which examinations were reduced to writing, and are here with submitted, with the accorapar ying papers, and made a part of this report. By reference to the testimony of Secre tary Cuming, it will be seen that the late Gov. Izard has left in the Governor's of fice no papers or vouchers showing how or in what manner he expended the .ap propriation of fifty thousand dollars made by the General Government for the erec tion of a Capitol building for the Terri- ory; consequently the committee in the absence of Gov. Izard, have no means of ascertaining how that appropriation was expended, whether economically or other wise ; Gov. Izard seeming to act without reference to the wants and wishes of the people of the Territory, and entirely inde pendent of and above them, although he was simply the trustee or agent to disburse this appropriation for their benefit. This conduct on the part of the late Governor the committee deem extremely reprehen sible and worthy of the severest censure. It will be seen from the testimony sub mitted that the Capitol building is yet far from a state of completion. The appro priation cf fifty thousand dollars ly the united States has heen expended ; fifty two thousand dollars has been expended upon it by the City of Omaha, under the direction of the Mayor; an indebtedness of eight thousand was created in favor of the building, ey Gov. Izard, bevond the amount oi tne apprcpriation, -wnicn in debtedness has to some extent been as sumed and paid tby the City of Omaha, making in the aggregate the amount of one hundred and ten thousand dollars, sixty thousand of which is beyond the ap propriation; and the lowest estimate to complete the same without the ornamental work outside, including the columns, &c, is twenty thousand dollars, makinsr the cost of the building beyond the appropri ation, eighty thousand dollars, and with the appropriation, one hundred and thirty thousand dollars when completed in this manner, it the original plan is carried out even in the cheapest manner) with the columns, Sac, the lowest estimate is seventy-five thousand dollars, which add ed to the present cost, makes the whole cost when completed, one hundred and eighty-five thousand dollars. The committee are of opinion that when Gov. Izard undertook to erect so magni ficent a structure for the Capitol building of this infant Territory, requiring so large an outlay of money, he exhibited a lack of prudence foresight and common management, greatly- compromising him as a capable and erauent public, omcer,. acting as a trustee for the Territory. , - The Committee are of opinion that in no event should any of the expense attend ing the erection of this imposing Capitol edifice, be borne by the people, of this Territory. The original appropriation of fifty, thousand dollars was a munificent donation by Congress, and amply suffi cient, if it had been properly applied, to erect a builamg which would - have been an ornament to the Territory, and abun dantly answered all its purposes as a Ca pitol for a generation. . i et this appro priation has been swallowed up and the Territory as a whole has received, as yet, no benefit from it." If any party has de rived any benefit, it is the city of Omaha, in which the Capitol building is situated , and in which the money has been expend ed. It is" "but just therefore, that the city of Omaha should undertake and agree to save the Territory harmless . from 'taxa tion, in the amount that has already been, and which must yet be expended to com plete the same.- ' The Committee take pleasure in reporting ' that the City of Omaha has recognized, the justness of this position, as will appear by the fol lowing resolution, which was unanimous ly passed by the Common Council of the City of Omaha, on Monday, January 4, 1S53, and is made a part of this report : ' Resolved, That the Mayor be instructed to assure the Select Committee, Messrs. Bowen and Rogers, appointed on the part of the Council to intrestigate the subject of Territorial Capitol Square and the completion . or ,the lerntonai ounumg erected thereon ; that the city of Omaha will in no event make the expense incur red by said city ia completion of said building a charge to the Territory, except in case aa appropriation be made by the General Government for the completion or said Daiiuing. " - I Resolved, That the Mayor be instruct ed to urge the Legislative Assembly to memorialize Congress for a auffi cient ap- i propria Mrt Jrf'W?rj pended by the City cf Omaha and com- plete said building. The Committee were also instructed to enquire into the title of the ground upon which the Capitol, building is situated, and to demand from the Mayor of the City of Omaha, a conveyance to the Terri tory of the same. They have performed that duty, and as appears from the testi mony of the Mayor of the City of Omaha the equitable title to the same is now in ther-Territory, the Mayor having the title m trust for the Territory, and will make a deed in fee, whenever called upon by proper authority, ; : . All of which is respectfully submitted. L. L. BOWEN, S. E. ROGERS. Hon. T. B. umiko, Secretary of the Territory at; id Acting Governor, states as follows : When Gov Izard left Nebraska he turned over to e his office furniture and safe, but no p lie papers or documents, correspondenc record, books, or any- thing else con ected with the business of the office, except five contracts submitted to the Committeei one of which relates exclusively to he Territorial Library, the ethers to thei Capitol building -one of these made by Graham & Steinwood, of St. Louis, with Gov. Izard,, is for cast iron wall plates and iron girters to be delivered on the levee at St. Louis on or defore May 13th, 1856, the consideration in which contract was three dollars and forty-five cents jper hundred. The amount of this contract is not known, but is certi fied by Gov. Izard as paid-in full. An other of these contracts made by John A. Singleton and Pf A. Badeau of St. Louis, for iron caps, cornice and window sills, for four cents pier pound, delivered on the levee at SflLouis. The amount not ascertained, but; the certificate of Gov. Izard appears to its full payment. An other of these contracts is made by Gov. Izard with John jind David H. Naylor for the manufacture !of zinc cornice to be de tiveredonthe lejreeat ot. L.ouis on or before the 15th of June, 1S56, contract price four thousand six' hundred dollars. Upon this amount Gov. Izard certifies he has paid twenty-six hundred doliirs, when it appears by the contract that se venty-five per cent or the whole amount was to be paid on the delivery of the same upon the levee, which leaves due balance of eight hundred and fifty dollars and twenty-five per cent, of the whole 1 a amount yet due when the cornice is put up. The other of these" contracts is made by xihd between Gov. Izard and William F. Cozzens and David P. Hull of St. Louis, for cast iron Corinthian capitals and pilasters the consideration for which delivered upon the levee at St. Louis on the 13th day of Mayl 1S56, was four thousand three hundred and thirty-six dollars, upon wiich there has been paid as endorsed by Gov. - Izard, three thou sand dollars, leaving a -balance still due of one thousand three hundred and thir ty-six dollars. Q. How far from completion is the Capitol building ? A. It is believed that it will take about twelve thousand dollars to finish it with out the columns. Q. How long would it take to finish the building on present plan ? A. In one season. Q. How much has been already expen ded on the Capital building ? A. There is nothing m the Governor s office bearing on that kubject than stated before, nor has anything been communi cated to the Secretary's office at any time, nor has anything been communicat ed to me in person by ,the Governor. Q. In whom is the title to Capitol Square vested ? ! A. In the City of Omaha by pre-emption. I - Q. Who now has control of the Capi tol building ? A. I consider that the territory of Ne braska has, and ' the City of Omaha is bound in good faith to deed the - Capitol Square to the United States or the terri tory; but the City of Omaha has a lien on the building for the amount of some fifty thousand dollars, expended on the same. -A-: T.

What amount has been ex pended upon the Capitol building and by whom expended? - Answer, ljifty-one thousand nine hun dred and forty-six dollars - and ninety three cents has been expended under my direction by the City of Omaha. Prior to' this there had been expended by Gov. Izard the fifty thousand dollar government appropriation, and an additioual indeb- teoness created by nun amounting - to about eight thousand dollars. The pre sent cost up to this time amounting in all to about one hundred and ten thousand dollars, as will appear by books and vouchers in my possession. - Q. .What would it cost to complete the same upon the original plan of Gov. Izard? A. I should say seventy-five thousand dollars at least. Q. What will be the cost to- complete tne Dunaing- without the .outside col umns? . . . A., isot more than twenty thousand dollars. ....

I as Mayor of the City, of Omaha, have eh- :red the ground and am ready at any time to make a conveyance of the same to the proper owner, which . I regard to be the territory of Nebraska. I am in formed by ru- brother. Dr. Lowe, that he as President of the Ferry Company exe cuted a quit claim deed for Capitol square to Gov.
