k Tin our last issue we said socscinxng

. however, and therefore
propose now to
say something more.
In the first place, we profess to be gov
erned in cor political views by principle;
and although we may have choice of men
or party to xarry out those principles, yet
' they are not essentials. If the Democra
tic jartj will see that they are enforced
to the fullest extent, without partiality to
either the North or the South nat ional
in the fullest sense then we cannot
withhold our support from such a party.
Bat a failure orTefttsal to dispense Tqual
justice to all sections 6r the Union, can
never no, never receive our sanction or
support! We arV for the Union, the
The principles to which we refer more
particularly at present, are embodied in
the "Kansas-Nebraska Act," and in the
Platfonn adopted by the Cinsinnati Dem
ocratic Convention. Such doctrine as is
seTTOrtnlgmesa tuoaoTmsgEXSTre ad-
'mire as the trjia-doctr.inend subscribe
- to it fully and cheerfully.
Previous to the assembling of the Le
compton Convention, all parties; Demo
. cratic or otherwise, had imbibed the idea
or doctrine of submitting all local mat-
; ters to the people for rejection or ratifica
tion. This especially was to act as a pal
liative for the repeal of the Missouri Com-
. promise, and that ever afterward the
vexatious question of slavery was to be
. disposed of, as other domestic affairs, by
the vote of the people directly interested.
The repeal of the Missouri Compromise
was opposed by argument that "plighted
faith V was being violated. On the other
hand, the advocating argument was, "a
fundamental and chsrished principle lies
f mothered,", and will thus be re-ushered
with the brilliancy of the noon day sun.
The sequel of the "Repeal" is familiar
to observers cf public affairs, and we
confess we feel an interest of some mag
nitude, in seeing the promises set forth in
the "Kansas and Nebraska Act" faith
fully, impartially, and fully redeemed.
Let each and every citizen entitled to the
right of suffrage, come up and deposit his
vote for or against any domestic regula
tion slavery, banks, taxation, school sys
tem, or anything else in which his inter
ests are involved. - If the act under which
we have been organized only extends to
a single "domestic affair," then indeed
have we misunderstood the term "popul
sovereignty." We hope for the sake of
Nebraska and Democracy that it means
. something more ; that we may be allowed
to "regulate our own domestic institutions"
in such a manner as may seem to us best
calculated to promote our interests and
happiness; subject only the Federal
is whuinm. lifant this power to us,
and the beauties of self ' government are
discernable. Let us enjoy in the broad
est sense, the right to establish or reject
any institution, m which we alone are con
iiucu. j. umers, aisiani or near.
should meddle with bur affairs or dictate
to us, so long as we follow the land marks
laid down by the Constitution of the Uni
ted Slates. "
Uur position is in strict accordance
. with our Organic Constitution, and, be-
lieving thus, we shall adhere to it, though
deserted by others now, or at any other
period.. It is the only principle, in our
humble opinion, calculated to cement to
gether, in the bonds of peace and friend
ship, the North and the South, to calm the
sea of excitement which for three years
past has threatened to inundate our heaven
favored country in the horrors of an in
ternal sectional war. Let such a princi
ple be enforced, and no danger of such a
' calamity need be apprehended; nationa
peace will be restored, and the Union of
the States perpetuated.
The man who fearlessly vindicates the
free and untrammelled right of the peo
ple to manage their own affairs in their
own way without- the interference of
. Iowa, Missouri, Massachusetts, or South
.. Carolina is the man who will receive
the cheerful support of every good Demo
crat throughout the Union. Who is that
man? Can any one point out the lion of
Popular Sovereignty ?" Time will show
who he is, and his brow will ere long be
twined with honors, fame and glory ! .
We notice some, of our exchanges ad
ranee the idea of a small emigration west
this season, in consequence of the intense
'tightness of the times. We cannot acqui-
, ess in this idea; believing the cause men
lioned will induce thousands . to try their
fortunes in the .West. .'They may not
emigrate as early, in the season as usual;
delayed in all probability on account of
gathering together the remnants conse
quent of the crisis which has ' swept over
our country. Many, also, will be com-
.'pelled to tarry awhile in order to dispose
of such property as cannot well be brought
with them. 'These and other matters
may act as preventives to emigration for
reveral months; after which, we may
tafely predict a heavy emigration to all
portions cf the Missouri and ilississippi
vallies. . -

:2id willing "to make homes" in'the West;

Republican says :
"The few boats that have already ar
rived here from the Ohio river, have been
crowded with emigrants for Missouri,
Iowa. Kansas and Nebraska. Compared
with former seasons, the present has al
ready given us quite as flattering pros
pects of large emigration as any which
have preceded it. The usual time for the

cial storm which lately swept over the
whole country, has left but the wrecks
of fortune to many who have heretofore?
uxunated in opulence m their eastern
nomes. mere are several causes wny
this state of things should , turn the steps
of such towards the West, as almost the
only means left them of retrieving their
wealth and standing.
The Cincinnati Gazette, in noticing the
beginning 01 tne emigration trom mat
city says: "The Fred Tron cleared for
the Mound City at dusk, with the finest
trip this season. It was down to the
guards, having onboard 600 tons of mis-
cellaneous articles, 43 horses and . 109
passengers. The Tron has engagements
of families at Aurora, Lawrenceburg and
a 1 11
Madison, destined for the West. From
all appearences the emigration this sea
son will be very large, having commenc
ed so early. The number this year; bound
est, will exceed any previous year.
They go from Indiana, Ohio and Penn
sylvania, taking money, implements of in
dustry, strong hands and enlightened un
derstandings. This is the character of
the emigration beginning to pour upon
tne nroaa lanas ot tne iree vesi,

and its effects are incalculable. The
steamers every one of them from Cin
cinnati, Pittsburg and Louisville, will take
their cabins crowded with human beings,
to add to the population of the vast West."

Nearly all the members of the House
were in the Senate during the closing pro
ceedings. The chamber.'' in every part
was as densely crowded as possible. On
the announcement of the vote there was a
slight applaud in the galleries interming
led with a few hisses, but no extraordi
nary excitement was manifested.
Notwithstanding Nebraska may not
have a voice in the election of the next
President, we may be allowed to ven
ture a prognostication that the man who
favors the principle of admitting Territo
ries into the great sisterhood of States,
without , fairly and squarely submitting
their Constitutions to the people,cannot be
elected to the office of President of the
United States! . A principle of this kind
is at variance with democracy, and highly
antagonistic to the true policy of all rep
ublican governments. If such is to be the
corner stone of Democracj' such the
precedent for future federal action we
are certainly correct in predicting a death
blow to any man or party who attempts to
carry it through a presidential campaign.
We are reluctant to believe democrats,
who are true friends to the peace and
weli-being of the Union, favor this prin
Admit that the free state party in Kan
sas did not do right in refusing to partici

that any reason why those who were

Because a power was invested in theinas

the voice of the people. We think not.

Omaha, April 1,1853.
Dear Fcrx as:
-Navigation has opened with cheering
prospects to those who have regained
during the dull season , of winter. Old
friends are returning by the first steam
ers, and new emigrants are making their
appearance for the first time in Nebraska;
some of whom are looking for ' homes
amon us ; others endeavoring to better
their fortunes by making locations higher
up the Missouri: All who have been ab
sent to avoid the - inclemency of the cold
months, have returned satisfied that the
Territory possesses "attractions which
those older regions have long since lost,
and which never can be recalled or re
gained sufficiently for the edification of
those who have mingled with the business
and : resided , any length of time in the
West, , and become acquainted with its
usually lively appearance, customs and
manners. Capital is seeking investment,
and already property begins , to change
for cash on good terms for the purchaser.
Now is the best time for investments in
western lands arid town property that may
be expected for many years to come, as
prices have run down to mere nuuuua
figures, and in many instances propcuj
sold for much less than tne cost ox ouuu-
SALES. V '
Within a short time pastseveral sales
have been mada at moderate prices, at
private salesv ' ;v . ' v
A three story' brick apartment 01 a
block 22 by 60 feet, sold for $4800, which
is several thousand dollars less than it
cost or could now be erected for.
Another small "store house; 'about 16
by 32 feet, one story high,) 22 feet lot,
near Western Exchange Bank, 'sold for
about -$1300. '
"A 22 feet lot.hear said Bank, for $900.
The 'above lots ire "all on AFarham
street," in the most business portiorrof the
city, and well situated. - '
Another 22 feet lot was sold on Harney
near the Douglas House, for $500.
TfiP lnw ranrro nf the above PHCeS IS
not caused by a lack of confidence in Ne
braska property, but because the neces
sity of the seller compels the sacrifice, for
the prospects are substantially better than
they were a year since, although times
are acknowledged to be dull at present.
Instead of the high rates for city and
farming property, which existed last year,
and which detered many from buying and
residing among us, and drove , thera to
seek homes elsewhere, where they could
use their means to better advantage, we
now have the reduced prices to encouraj
their investments, both for profit and im
provement for their own occupancy.
LABORERS AND MECHANICS.
Nebraska and the Great West now ot
fer extraordinary inducements to the
common laborer and mechanic who are
now reduced to limited means in the older
sections of the United States, in conse
quence of the failure to procure employ
In the West, they can find work at good
living prices, when, at the same time, in
the eastern por jion of the Union, they
cannot labor at any price.
.When times are good and work can be
procured anywhere, then again the Wes
is superior, for they can demand better
wages and ready pay, and when they
have earned their money, even in smal
sums they can invest it profitable in pro
curing cheap homes for themselves.
The land sales in contemplation this
fall will render them opportunities to
purchase wild land at SI 25 per acre from
government, or at small advances from
original purchasers. " .
More than' all that, a man of any in
dustry and enterprise can besides amass
ing wealth, show that he is one of the
Almighty's noblemen ; ' but as long as he
remains in those 1 old cities, he is reduced
to the position of a servant.
Many object to emigrating West, fear
mg that they cannot nnd good society
and, at the same time, are mingling with
those whose claims on enlightened and
intelligent association is very limited, and
whose condition in that respect would be
enhanced by locating in Nebraska. Here
is industry, enterprise, good society
wealth, and intelligence, not to be excel
led by the same number of persons mis
cellaneously selected on the globe.
The lazy and indolent drones and pau
pers never get this far from their old and
accustomed haunts, from the fact that
they lack the energy, enterprise and
means to4r travel, and you often hear them
assert that they will not move out of the
cities because they cannot find good so
ciety. Emigrating to the West changes a
person's disposition and nature in refer
ence to things around them, encourages
them to perseverence and industry to ac
cumulate and lay up treasures for the fu
ture, enlightens their understanding, and
gives them confidence by their showing
the good results that flow from industrial
pursuits, and encouragement of intelligent
and industrious neighbors.
Letters mailed at Omaha for Brown
ville, Spt. 28, 1857, have just been rec
eived by return mail, being six months
from the time they were written. This
is depending on the mail for quick news
with a vengeanbe.
A short time since, whilst visiting a
city of Nebraska, I noticed the mail bag
lying on the hotel porch, and had been
there from early in the morning on Sun
day until after dark. When the tavern
keeper's attention was drawn to it by a
gentleman 'making the enquiry why it
was not taken to the post office, only a
few rods distant; to which the landlord
replied that itTvas a common occurrence
to hang the bags on the knob of ' the post
office door, and leave them all night in
the absence of the post master. The mail
bag in question, to my own knowledge,
remained in the corner of the bar-room
This kind of carelessness I have often
noticed whilst travelling in the West,
both by mail carriers and post masters,
which,' I think, would be a much better
cause for removal than that of opposition
to the Lecompton Constitution, which has
already beheaded so many.
' ,- r ' POLITICAL.
The democratic party is somewhat div
ided here in referrence to the admission
of Kansas under the Lecompton Consti
tution, but I believe the great majprity
are opposed to it;
Some of the would-be leaders of both
divisions are determined to make the
others show their positions, whilst the
people care but little about the question,
as thejrare tolerably well satisfied that
he factions can and must come togetne:
without compromising principle. t
Tliere will be an !efibrt made' at the
June convention at Plattsmouth to endorse
President Buchanan, and also the Douglas
party; then again there are others who
contend that it will be better to confirm
the Cincinnati platform for the present,
as there is a strong probability that before
the year terminates the entire party will
be united, and the Kansas admission' pass-
, 1 A. ' Alt
ed as one 01 tne usual ongressiuuai uu.-
f erences. It is to be hoped the party can
reconcile its'opposite construction4 oftheir
poiitical constitution, and fall into rank
and file against the common enemy. -
