The day is fast approaching when Ne
braska will seek admission into the Union.
But three years have passed away since
her wide extent of Territory was opened
for settlement, and she has already at
tained to more than one half of the popu
lation. ,r usually,, .required., of. ..Territories
when admitted to the independent sove
reignty of States, and this too when party
and personal excitements, the nation
through, have directed into Kansas the
great tide of emigration. Now that these
excitements are being allayed, . and the
emigrant selects his own path-way,' unin
fluenced by morbid partizan feelings,
three more years can hardly elapse before
our Territory will be ready to throw off
the swaddling clothes of her minority and
claim the sovereignty of a full grown in
That day will be one of momentous
importance to our political future. There
will ' be adopted by us a Constitution,
moulded according to the views and sen
timents of the people at the time, a consti
tution which, being the fundamental law
of the new State,' will shape and give co
loring to all subsequent legislation. ; Con
gress requires of the Constitution of a
State seeking admission into the Ucion no
other qualification than that it be rt pubh
can in form. A wide field is here left to
the discretion and choice of the people
composing the ne-v State. They may
adopt a constitution upon the old federal
ist plan, conferring large powers upon the
government, powers of oppressive taxa
tion, powers of large patronage in the ap
pointment to lucrative offices by the Exe
cutive, instead of electing them by the
people, powers of managing the public
funds ou systems and plans of ruinous
extravagance, and of establishing mam
moth monopolies which rival aud crush
the interests of individual citizens, thus
making the people and their substantial
good substrvient to the government.
which is the theory of tyrannies, lostead
of making the government subservient to
the people, which is and always has been
the theory of the Democratic party.
On the other hand, they may adopt a
constitution whose basis shall be the glori
ous democratic motto "That government
is best which governs least." It may
leave the people free to elect all their own
officers, with power to arraign them be
fore the tribunal of public opinion when
ever their misdeeds or shortcomings de
mand it. It may errant to its officers only
such limited powers as a faithful and effi
cient discharge of their duties absolutely
requires. It may limit taxation both m
its objects and amounts. It may forbid
all lavish expenditures of public monies.
It may restrain the chartering of banks
and monied corporations whose baleful
effects upon the public prosperity we are
now sorely experiencing. In short it may
provide an economical, safe and democ
ratic government. Between extremes so
very wide the new State will be permitted
to form its own domestic institutions
Democrats, you believe that the latter
and not the former description of consti
tution is the true one for a democratic
people is best suited to our intelligence,
prosperity and . wnts. . You belong to
that great and glorious party whose foun
der was Thomas Jefferson ; which from
the first formation of our government un
til now, has contended for such a constitu
tion. You could not content yourself to
live under one less free less democratic.
Not one of you but would indignantly
spurn the idea of living in a State ruled
by federalists, whose leading doctrine is
to increase the power of the government
at the expense of the power of the people.
As this Territory is so soon to make the
choice of th-j constitution which it will
have, and as every democrat, every free
man, is personally and vitally interested
in framing a constitution free and demo
cratic in all us part, it is very apparent
that no tune is to be lost in adopting mea
sures and means for securing it. . Public
sentiment should be moulded early, those
who are of opposite views should be in
formed and convinced, while those who
are of like views should be impressed
with an adequate idea of their importance,
and all of us should be trained into an ar
my, compact, determined and strong,
which can sweep the field of every oppos
Considerations of this character have
induced Democrats from ail parts of the
Territory to urge upon their brethren the
propriety of an early and thorough orga
nization of the party.
In all new countries, personal and sec
tional iealousies wasre titter contests. If
our Territory has been no exception to
the general rule if we have been unwill
ing witnesses of the unnatural strifes of
Democrats with Democrats, let us re
member, let the bitterest opponents re
member that now we are approaching a
new era that another than a sectional
warfare is. coming on, a warfare in which
are involved ihe vital and permanent in
terests, not of one section only but of all
together, not of one man or set of men
only, but of all democrats and that a
common triumph r a common defeat
await us all. If our zeal for Democratic
doctrines, principles and usages, has wax
ed cold in controversies in which they

when they are involved and involved for
all time toome, warm oar political faith
into new life, that we may march once
more under the old tanner which we all
love.'boldly and confidently to the war
fare which is before us.
Fellow Democrats, look at the past his
tory of our party, and in her glorious
principles and achievements,, see what
abundant cause we hate for pride' and
exultation. The history of ! progress is
but a history of her triumphs, every step
which has been taken m advance since
the first adoption of our federal constitu
tion by our forefathers, has been taken by
the Democratic party In the great
march of human progress the opposition to
our party has slowly and rebtanctly fol
lowed, guided not by their principle, but
by the ashes of our former camp-fires, and
seldom reaching these till they were cold
and dead. Not a day goes by but that
our enemies pay the tribute of acknowl
edgement to the worth and wisdom of
some measure against whose establish
menl they warred to the bitter end. Re
call the great issues on which the country
has been divided, and behold the Demo
craty from first to last and always fight
ing on the side of the people and coming
on victorious. The alien and sedition
laws the fond idol of the federalists of
the daya of John Adams assailed by
Jeffersonian Democrats and annihilated,
so that to-dav the dosr in the street will
not howl a requiem over their rotten re
mains. ' The United States Bank, that
monstruous monopoly of money, which as
pirechto rule the politics of the country by
its power, assailed by Jacksonian Demo

extinct measure of the Past forgotten al
most, in the issues of our day. In its
wake has followed the kindred measure
of a protective tariff, and in its rlare
stands the wise and salutary measure of
a tariff for revenue only. The D mo
cratic party hr.g added every foot of &oil
which has extended the general domain,
limited on the west by the Gulf of Mexi
co, to the-Pacific Ooan and to Central
America, making a sea girt empire
mightier than the tyrannies of ancient or
the monarchies of modern tunes. And
lastly it has proclaimed and established
upon a firm basis the great doctrine of
Popular Sovereignty, in which e now
exult as a free, while we remain a depen

As the Democratic party has advanced
from one of these principles to the other,
asserting them, contending for them, and
establishing them, the party of the oppo
sition, under whatever name its forces
were rallied, has ohiected to them as
yielding too much to the people, has op
posed them and been defeated under
them, and has at last come to see their
wisdom and to acquiesce in their firm and
enduring establishment in the govern
meut. How devoutly do we see Seward
Hale; Sumner andGiddings to-day kneel
ing . around the altar of Popular Sover
eignty, rivaling even Douglas and his as
sociates in devotion to a doctrine agams

Such, Fellow Democrats, has been the
history of our party. She had her origin
in the first days of the Union. She has
held on her way amid the breaking of
opposition factions amid her many faced
aud ever changing foes, amid all changes,
one and the same, the party of the people,
the party of progress, the party of power,
and the party of victory. Have not the
democrats of Nebraska . a right to be
proud that they may constitute a regiment
in the grand army, and should we not
wheel into rank and march : boldly and
fearlessly to battle, assured that as ever
when we have been united victory will be
The day is auspicious for our hearty
and thorough organization. The causes
which for a few dark weeks thrtatened to
divide our strength have ceased to oper
ate. The vexed Kansas question, which
in -de the halls of our national legislation
a theatre of strife and turmoil, and array
ed friend against friend, has been refer
red to the people of that Territory for
final settlement. Let us hope that they
may act wisely and secure for themselves
a brighter destiny in the future than they
have had in the past. Upon that question
Democrats hive never been divided in
principle, for the President declared in
his first message that hereafter the prin
ciple should be applied, that the constitu
lion of a new State should be submitted to
and adoptt d by the people before it is
presented to Congress, and this is the
whole of the great principle j f popular
sovereignty for which Sir.. Douglas has
contended. The only contest was over the
question of expediency in the Kamas
case and the fact that Democrats cannot
always see alike with regard to questions
of expediency is only an evidence of their
honestv and independence, and should
excite no fears that the party is threat
ened with disorganization such mere is
sues of a day will never divide the Dera
ocratic ranks. Thev are held together
by too many ties and associations, by too
many hallowed memories and great h"pes
to cease their common ehorts tor, the ac
complishment of the grand aims and pur
poses of the party.

Tbe Sculpture of Habit
Did you ever watch a sculptor slowly
ashioning a human countenance? It is
not moulded at once. It is not struck out
at a single beat. It is painfully and la
boriously wrought. .A thousand blows
rough cast it. Ten thousand chisel-points
polish and perfect it put ' in the fine
touches, and bring out the features and
expression. It is a work of time; but at
last the full likeness comes out, and stands
fixed forever and unchanging in the solid
Well, so does a man under the leadings
of the Spirit, or the teachings of Satan,
carve out his own moral likeness. Every
day he adds something to the work.
A thousand acts of thought, and will, and
deed, shape the features and expression of
the soul habits of love, and purity, and
truth habit3 of falsehood, malice and un-
cleanliness, silently mould and fashion it.

The Three Mariels of England.
England produces three objects which
are met with everywhere, but which in
that island are remarkable for their mar
vellous beauty the women, the trees,
and the horses. Moreover, every place
which raises a race of horses worthy of
admiration is also peopled by pretty wo
men. W hat is the cause of the coinci
dence, it is not easy to say; but this strauge
correlation is not the less real
rears the best horses of the East. The
plains of La Camargue, in the neighbor
hood of Aries, famous for its lovely girls,
preserve the blood of the Moorish cour
sers in a state of nature; the Audalusian
maid attains her perfection of forms by
the side of the most symmetrical steeds of
the Peninsula; at Mecklenburg you be-
hold the purest blood of Germany ; and
when a phalanx of amazons gallop along
the avenues of the London parks, the
dazzled eye cannot fix itsf If with indif-
ference either on the ecuyere or the am-
mal on which she is mounted. Let a
young girl draw up her horse beneath a
lufty tree, and you will contemplate,
grouped in a eiwrld picture, the three
marvels of England.

- Baptism in Hoops.
At Chicago last week, a rather amus
ing scene took place during the baptism
of a young la .y by the pastor of the Ta
bernacle. The Union says: "The minis-
ter requested her to assume the dress pe-
culiar to such an occasion, but she dtclin-
ed to take off her hooped skirt; the
minister told her of the inconvenience
that must result from her obstinacy, but she
persis'ed. When she came to descend into
the bath, the inflated skirt touched the wa
ter and rose up aroun 1 her like a talloon.
Her head was lost to the congregation,
she was swallowed up in the swelling
skirt, the minister tried to force her down
into the bath, but she was kept above the
surface by the floating properties of the
crinoline, and was buoyed up so success
fully that it was not until attw mucn uu

Col. Benton's Last Words.
The Washington correspondent of the
New York Tribune, thus writes, under
date of the 10th :
The supposed time of Mr. Benton's
death was 7:35, although he glided off so
gently that it may have been some mi
nutes earlier. The last evening, when
Mr. Appleton called, he was too ex
hausted to converse and merely signified
"to-morrow." At times through the
night he was seized with spasmodic pains
of great violence, otherwise he Tested
gently. His last connected words were
about two in the morning, when Jacobs,
his son-in-law, who was setting up, ask
ed how he felt, to which he faintly whis
pered, "comfortable and contented."
