We neglected last week
to notice th

"labors in this city. ' Perhaps notices, by
"partizan presses, of religious efforts, may
by some, be considered somewhat out of

favorable impressions made, and evidence
given of thorough theological scholarship,
tpgether with thejride we feel in. so va
. ' luable an acquisition to our list of citizens,
wilUifldoubtedly be sufficient apology, if
,any is nexessary. We. have. known Mr.
Tipton by' reputation for years; first in

early day, at some convenient point,
' where and when a full expression of the
whole people may be had.

. . .The sale of City Lots, which took place
J on Monday last, went off in a most satis
' factory mlnner. Considering the tight
ness of the times the prices were extre

dollars to one hundred. Most of the lots
were sold to persons who will immediate

circumstances. Ine wnole matter Las

The documents transmitted to ' the Sen
ate include v letter, from Gen. Cass of
May 10ih,' to Secretary- Toucey, asking
lha: a vessel of .war be .sent to the Cuban
coast, with instructions to render prompt
protection 5 to all American vessels.
The Secretary of 'ther- Navy wrote to the
Prtisident on the 1 la of May, that theU.
S. steamer Fulton . had been ordered to
cruise actively on the northeast coast of
Cuba, and take such measures as may be
deemed necessary to protect all vessels of
the' United State;?. Orders have been
given for (hi immediate preparation of
the razee Savanah and the Brig Dolpnm
to join the ' home squadron for the pur
pose of: cruidng in the nighborhood of
"Cuba, iind that the steam frigate Wabash
now fitting out in Is lew x ork as the flag
ship of the Mediterranean squadron, had
been directed to show her flag in those
watersVand protect the property of Amer
icaa citizens. ' . . ' .
Secretary Cass to Mr. Dallas, May 18
says, when all the facts have heen ascer
tained, proper - representations will be
made without delay to the Government of
Her Majesty agaicst this search ml ves
sels belongirg to the United States by the
naval forces of another power within the
territorial jurisdiction of Spain. The
Government of the United States is fully
satisfied that the Government of that
country will adopt the most efficient means
to protect our vessels resorting to Spanish
ports from lawless 'violence. Such pro
tection they are entitled to, and if it is
not secured elsewhere, it must be in the
power of our country. '
Mr. Cass says he is not informed wheth
er any injury was sustained in consequnce
or the proceedings against these vessels
if there were, it i j expected it will be
made good by, the Spanish Government,
or by means of its -intercession with the
government of Great Britain. These fla
grant outrages against the United States,
he addds, Lave excited deep feeling in
the United btates, and have attracted
the attention of both Houses of Congress
Their continuance cannot fail to produce
the most serious euects upon the rela
turns of. the two countries. , The Presi
dent confidently believes the British na
vai officers, in the adoption of these hijrh
handed measures, have acted without au
thority, anJ have mistaken the views of
their Government, but it is not the less
due to the United States that their con

orders be issued to prevent the recur

You will communicate to Earl Malms-
bury the reasonable expectations of the
President that this subject shall receive
the immediate attention of her Britanic

The famous chief Billy Bowlegs with
one hundred and twenty-three men, wo
men and children of his tribe were col
lected at the lest accounts ready to leave
Florida for ever. Assinowah had also
come in with all Lis family to the west
with the others. ' Halleck Tustenugge
was prepared to leave, but had returned
to the cj'press swamps to endeavor to pre
vail upon Sara Jones and his party to go
also.' The old chief, Sam Jones, it is re
ported, will not listen to leaving. He is
now blind and unable to walk without the
aid of a stick. He has eleven warriors in
his band, all of whom are much attached
to him. Thcj e is something solemn in
this remnant cf a warlike people leaving
the Everglades in which they have so
long defied th utmost efforts of the white
man to expel -.hem. As for the blind old
chief who still refuses to go, why not let
him end his days, which' are-few, in the
land cf his fathers, and leave his bones
among those cf the mighty but nameless
of his race ? '"'.'''
! There is another band of Indians who
have been used to trade in boats with the
Bahama Islands. The steamboat Range
with some "of Billy Bowlegs men had gone
in search of them toMatteo Bay. It was
expected that , when found they would
agree to go, but so far the search after
them had been entirely unsuccessful.

Weclipthe following accofcnt of an in

ittsburg Post of the loth inst :
Avery interesting ceremony took place
at the St. Charles Hotel, where the mem
bers of the Scott Legi&o of Pittsburg pre
sented to their v former commander, Col.
W. Black, a sen-ice of plate. J
The mettinjr was called to ordex.-and
Captain Alexander Hays was appointed
President, and bergeant John iteynoias
Secretary- ' " ";' - '
The. President stated the object of tne
meeting, after which Mr. C. H. '. Rippey,
on the part of the Scott Legion, stepped
forward and said to Col Black" that on the
eve of his departure to a farMistant home
his companions in armsof-the Scott Le
gion had. designed to present to him,, a
testimonial or their respect ana grauiuae.
He then "alluded to the; Col's fine quali
ties as a soldier and a man, as displayed
in his kindiess to those under hii com
mand in sickness, trouble or distress. It
was not necessary for any testimonial to
be presented to keep those pleasant mem
ories alive u the hearts of, those present
but in after years, when the : Colonel
and the rest had grown grey, these tokens
wodd bring back pleasing recollections.
He,' therefore, on the part of the Scott
Legion, presented this service to him,
with the best wishes of the body, one
and allfor his future prosperity; " '
The service consisted of a salver, pitch
er, and a pair of goblets, all of massive
silver, neatly engraved ."Colonel b. V.
Black Scott Legion." On the pitcher
was the following: ; .
' VERA CRUZ
COLONEL S. W. BLACK,
SCOTT "LEGION ;
In accepting the service Colonel Black
said if he possessed the utmost art of an
actor, he could not assume any teeling
equal to the reality which stirred and
swelled his bosom, and if he possessed
the art of concealing his emotions, he
could not restrain that sensibility to which
he- was constrained to yield. ' For the
first time he ' was embarrassed, and his
faculties refused to do their office. Word
hitherto, always at his command, had fled,
he almost feared, forever. If all the
friendly ,' influences of this place, where
he had ' spent so many years, had com
bined together to make him happy by' one
act of kindness, they could have contriv
ed no better demonstration than this. The
splendid gift he accepted gratefully,
without attempting to thank the givers
for all they had done for him, feeling that
if in the midnight hour, 'in their 'career
abroad, he had made one hour hang less
heavy to a comrade, the mention of it this
evening was a rich and a large reward
He was about to leave his old home for
a new one, where a new career was
marked out for him and all belonging to
him. On this pitcher was engraved Cerro
Gordo, Vera Cruz and ' Puebla; on his
heart was engraved 'the name of every
one in the Scott Legion. After a few
feeling and appropriate remarks in rela
tion to the American volunteers, he con
eluded by saying that he would take this
splendid offering with him to the far, fair,
fertile west, which was to be the future
home of himself and children, and it shall
occupy a place there with his others, the
onlyjewels he possessed; closing with an
invocation of "uod s blessing and its
richest abundance, now and forever," upon
Mr. Ripley and his companions in arms
of the bcott Legion.
The meeting then adjourned, and the
Colonel was cordially congratulated by
many old friends. The occasion was one
of touching interest, and went off very
We have advices from Arizonia to the
1st' of April. Letters from Tuezon, Tu
bac, and other points in the western parts
of the Territory, report a miserable con
dition of things in the valley of the San
ta Cruz. The Apaches continue to sweep
over the country without molestation or
hindrance. These savages had made j
recent foray upon the Mexican and Amer
ican mining settlements near Fort Bu
chanan, and were, on their retreat, pur
sued by a company cf dragoons from the
Fort, and seventy or eighty Pomos Indi
ans. The troops proceeded in the style
laid down in the books, and the Apaches
escaped, favored by the beacon of danger
furnished by the camp-fires of the sol
diers. The Pimos were immediately dis
irusted with the scientific warriors. About
fifty families were preparing to leave the
valley for California, from fear of the In
dians. They had been worried by the
savages, and neglected by the govern
ment so long, as to have lost the resolu
tion, as well as the material resources
necessary to their own defense. The
settlers want three or four companies o:
volunteers for their protection.
We learn from a gentleman just from
Fort Leavenworth, that the news of Gov
Cumming's entry into Salt Lake has been
fully confirmed. Brigham Young had no
official notice of his removal, but formal

presented himself. There was a grand
demonstration on the part of the mor

This af terioori, at 2 o'clockthe' Con
vention of lhe 'Democracy of Douglas
county assembled for the purpose of per
fecting the organization of the. party ini
this county,'" ind appoint delegates to at-'
tend the Plattsmouth Territorial Conven
tion. A committee on resolutions expressive
of the sense of the meeting was appoint
ed, who reported in favor of a thorough
organization at this 'time by the Demo
cracy -of Nebraska. - :
Gors Richardson -was invited by the
meeting; through a committee, to attend
the Convention, and in discharge of their
duty they waited upon him, and he ac
companied the committee to the hall where
the Convention was assembled, to which
he was introduced by the President, O.
D. Richardson The Governor replied in
an appropriate honorable and consistent
democratic speech, and retired amid the
applause of tho convened audience, who
had listened with marked attention to the
sound and reasonable counsels of our
democratic Chief Magistrate.
A committee was appointed to select
names, to be submitted to the uonvention
for their approval, as the proper persons
to attend as delegates to the Plattsmouth
Territorial Convention. The committee,
after lengthy deliberation returned with
the ns.mes of the following gentlemen :
R. W. Steele and A. B. Malcom, of
Florence ; John Steinberger, of Elkhorn;
H. D. Johnson, of Saratoga; O. D. Rich
ardson, A. J. Poppleton, W. A. Guire,
Armstrong, T. H. Robertson, A. J.
Hanscora, and G. Clayes, of Omaha.
The report of the committee was adopt
ed. ' Many prominent and ' unflinching
democrats were solicited to act as dele
gates, but refused to serve. An effort
was made by the committee to obtain a
compromise sentiment in the delegation.
A county democratic central committee
IL D. Johnson introduced a resolution
adopting the Cincinnati platform of demo
cracy, and unequivocally endorsing the
administration of James Buchanan. This
latter clause threw a political fire-brand
into the Convention, and a motion was
made to lay the whole matter on th?
table, after a prolonged discussion. The
house was divided, and the teller dishon
estly, for many in the house considered it
nothing else, reported a count showing
that the meeting refused to table the reso
lutions, when in fact it was the reverse,
as was evident to all present, and the
mover must have been satisfied of that
fact, for, on motion to strike out the en
dorsing clause, he withdrew his resolu
tions on a motion for leave by the meet
ing, which was done to produce harmony
and concert of action in the Convention
. Such tricks as this attempt at miscount
has been done by tho sanction of this
same teller before. Opposition should be
made to wrong doing, whether , it be by
tellers or presidents, and as much in one
party as in another, as error never should
be sanctioned or encouraged in any man
It is threatened by one of the delega
tion that he will introduce a similar reso
lution before the Territorial Convention,
let the consequences be what they may to
the party.' i r
: From expressions gathered from the
solid democracy of this county, it is be
lieved that it is the desire that no endor
sement of either wing of the party shall
be made. . As was said in the Convention
by the introducer of the firebrand resolu
tions let '"by gones be by gones," which it
is hoped may be adhered to by all parties
and delegates at that Convention. Let a
series of platform resolutions be introduc
ed and adopted which may express the
opinions of the party as to the course
of the party hereafter to be pursued, and
the principles upon which we can all con
sistently stand. Let the past be forgot
ten, and an effort of conciliation be made
for the future.
PRINCIPLES OF PLATFORM.
Let that Convention adopt the Cincin
nati Platform ; show their devotion to the
entire Union as a nation, and opposed to
sectionalism; adhere closely and strenu
ously to the States rights' doctrine. Let
the principle of popular sovereignty, . as
we wish to see it carried out in this Ter
ritory.be early promulgated by the action
of this Convention. Let it be embodied
as it is the nearly universal expression of
the citizens of Nebraska, without refer
ence toparty, that the Constitution of
Nebraska, as well as other Territories,
should, before going to Congress, be sub
mitted to those who are to be governed by
it, for their sanction or rejection. Then
let Congress either accept or reject by a
vote alone, without new bills, amendments
So frame the Platform that it cannot be
easily miscontrued, and. embody every
essential principle of the Nebraska De
mocracy. Meet every question boldly,
and leave no question open upon which
unreasonable test may be raised by those
' Consider every voter a leader of demo
cracy, and the only test to be applied shall
be the platform of democratic principles
as framed and adopted by that Conven
tion. . Endorse no man, men, or party, nor
condemn none ; but let every individual
who deems proper, after perusing the
platform, enroll his name among the rea-1
sonable and true democracy.
The democracy should adhere closely to
their old and long cherished principles,
antfbe harmbniousf "otherwise defeat may
be anticipated ; fof the Republican party
everywhere are jumping flat-footed on,
to,' and adopting the true principle cf po
pular sovereignty, to which they say they
have been driven by the democracy leav
ing it and adopting their principle of in
tervention by Congress in reference to
the Territories. ' Let reason rule ' in" the
midst of the coancils of that Convention,
and not upon the ' principle "of ' that man
who would be leader by saying that the
party to which he 'belongs can: do no
wrong; Hot'headsif permitted to lead
and rule, may be the ruin and downfall of
the democratic party, although there is a
consolation that they cannot destroy the
true principles, upon which that party
outrht to' stand
The will of the democracy in every
county and precinct should be expressed
by platforms of principles, which should
be taken to that Convention, which should
embody the sentiments therein set forth.
In that manner the will of the people
may be known, otherwise their sentiments
may not be represented, but only those
of the appointees', who may have objects
in view more to answer their own ends
than to subserve the interests of the
people. 1 '
" ' BANKS.
It wa3 rumored here a few day3 since
that the Tekama Banking House at St.
Louis had refused to pay out, which, of
course, set our citizens actively at work-
to learn the cause, and the result was that
the merchants and others refuse to take
it. The teller at the Bank did not know
anything about the bank breaking, as he
hid received no news from St. Louis;
living in the country, he had not even
learned that they had stopped taking his
money at Omaha, until some gentleman
from Iowa presented their money at the
counter for redemption and payment re
fused as usual for months lack. The
Banking house, safe and furniture, have
been attached to pay certain bill-holders
who had been taking their money in good
faith and confidence.
There was considerable of the Tekama
money afloat in this community, and was
the principal medium of trade in circula
tion, and was the first to be paid in and
paid out by nearly every person who had
purchases to make or debts to discharge.
Doubts are again expressed in reference
to the Florence Bank, although they still
redeem small sums at their counter.
Wabeek is beginning to be cried down
The result of all this financial embar
rassment causes many to doubt and falter
in other matters when there is really no
necessity for it. It produces hardships in
all ranks. With the laborer, it takes of
ten all he has and leaves him without
immediate resources to procure even the
necessaries of life, and the trader neces
sarily beihg compelled to take the cur
rency in circulation, is often caught with
hundreds iin his possession. All indeed
who handle much money are called upon
to mourn the loss of a much respected but
At a public meeting of the actual set
tlers held the 10th May 1858 in Town
ship no. 6 range 14 Nemaha County, Ne
braska, on motion of W. G. Hackett sec
onded by Jas. Wright, E. W. Reid was
chosen chairman and II. Crawford ap
The chairman then called upon Mr.
Hackett to explain the object of the meet
ing which he (Mr. H.) did in a speech of
considerable ability and force, deprecat
ing in severe terms the mandate of the
President ordering the sale of the pub
lic lands of this Territory in Sepiember
next. He showed the fearful consequen
ces that would follow to a great majority
of us by the .sale, as we were unable at
present to pay for our claims, and will
consequently be rendered homeless and
destitute. He concluded by urging the
propriety of our petitioning the House of
Representatives for relief.
The Secretary brought forward and
read a petition to the House of Repre
sentatives, which set forth the real con
dition of us, the actual settlers. It em
braced the views set forth by Mr. Hack
ett, and prayed the House to grant us
more time such a length of time as might
be reasonably supposed we ought to be
able to pay for our lands, without material
injury to ourselves, our friends, or the
Territory at large. The petition being
submitted to the meeting, was unanimous
ly agreed to.
Resolved, That the Secretary write to
Hon. A. C. Curtis of Iowa, respectfully
requesting him to take charge of and
present the petition to the House of Rep
resentatives. Moved by Mr. II. Crawford, and sec
onded by Mr. Barnard Minnick, that
Messrs. Reid, Hackett and Battie, be a

of the Brownville Advertiser, respectful

Hcch Crawford, Sec'y
From the proceedings of Congress of
the 12th of May, we clip the following
items of interest to the people of this Ter
ntory'j ' . : ' , j
! Mr. Cobb, from the Committee on Pub
lic Lands, reported adversely on the pe
tition of the trustees of the University of
Nebraska, which was laid upon the table.
"MrTCobb. The Committee on Public
Lands have had under consideration the
joint resolutions of the Legislature of
Nebraska, and sundry memorials relative
to the establishment of a new surveyor's
district in that Territory, and have in
structed me to report adversely thereon.
The proper department have determined
to 'move the surveyor general's office from
Kansas to Nebraska City, which is nearer
the center of the district, and that super
sedes the necessity of further legislation
on the subject. I move that the commit
tee be discharged from the further " con
sideration of the resolutions and ' memo
rials, and that they be laid upon the table.
IMotioh was agreed to.
" Mr. Cobb, from the same committee,
reported back a memorial and joint reso
lution of the Legislative Assembly of
Nebraska, asking for one or more addi
tional land districts in the western portion
of the Territory; and asked to have the
cpmmiuee . discharged from the further
consideration of the same. ' " .v-
i MrZColb. A' though our i committee
has been censured for its liberality, . we
have agreed to report against this memo
rial. We think there are enough of land
. The committee was accordingly dis
charged from the further consideration;
and the memorial was laid upon the table.
On motion of Mr. Colb, it was
Ordered, That the Committee on Pub
lic Lands be discharged from the further
consideration of the memorial of sundry
citizens of Nemaha county, Nebraska
Territory,' asking for an appropriation of
public lands for the use and benefit of
Brownville College; and that the memo
rial be laid on the table.
Mr. Branch, from the Ccmmitt3e on
Territories, reported back a joint resolu
tion and bills of the following titles, with
the recommendation that they do not pass;
which were laid upon the table, and or
dered to be printed:
A bill for the construction cf a road in
the Territory of Nebraska from the Platte
river to the Kansas line.
A joint resolution authorizing the ac
counting officer of the Treasury to adjust
and settle the accounts of a board of com
missioners, appointed under joint resolu
tion of the Territorial Assembly of Ne
braska to prepare a code of laws for the
government of said Territory.'
On motion of Mr. Branch, it was
Ordered, That the Committee on Ter
ritories be discharged from the further
consideration of the memorial of the may
or and city council of the city of Omaha,
Nebraska Territory, praying that said
city maybe reimbursed for money expen
ded for work done and materials furnish
ed on the capitol building of said Terri
