this enterprise. Few have en idea cf
"the money and labor requisite to carry on
a newspaper at all respectably, especially
ia thi3 western country. It costs us, inde

hours and Sabbaths in searching ex
thanges, or raking our train for ' matter
"with which to fill the paper weekly; while
ethers rest from their .daily labors, and
enjoy the privileges of the sanctuary. It
requires' just such labor weekly to pro
duce bur paper! ''. '
we ask, is it not
much of one individual to sustain the en

could devote one half the labcr we. do to

The Second Volume of the Advertiser
expires on the 21th of this month. " Its
continuance "will depend entirely upon
assurances we receive between now and
men. ve leei confident our property
holders and business men have never for
a moment reflected upon this matter, and
all that is necessary to ensure ; the exer
cise of their usual liberality and public
spirit; relative to all enterprises in which
the public interests are involved, is to
make the plain statements we have, to
gether with a direct appeal to them.

excellent and pointed extract frora an ar

Relations" with Great
Britain.' FreseEt indications squint strong
ly toward a "brush ahead" with John
Hull.. We are pleased ' to see the Admi
nistration taking prompt and active steps
tD maintain our national honor and rights.
In this it should be cordially supported by
all; without regard "to political opinions,
which divide us incur borne affairs. '
Official statements fully establish the
fact; that' acts of aggression by British
cruisers in the Gulf of Mexico have been
so frequent, and so: extraordinary as to
awaken indignation; and call for atten
tion on the'part of our Government.
Orders have been given in Washington
for the preparatiou of additions to the
Home Squadron, for the purpose of cruis
inir in th; neirrhborhood of Cuba and
- i -
elsewhere to protect at all times the pro
perty and rights of American citizens.
The Committee on Foreign, Relations
in the United States Senate,' on the 28th
ult., reported : '
"No less than fifteen American ships in
the harbor of Sagua la Grande; and six
on the high ; seas, are officially reported
as having Lad jo submit to aggressions
from British cruisers. Each additional
arrival brings fresh accounts of aggres
siens by the same power on our flag. It
ha3 hitherto happened in isolated cases,
where similar aggressions have occurred
through misconstruction, that the United
States have been content to accept a dis
claimer cf the attempt, but the continued
and preserving character of these outrages
is such as to arouse the indignation of the
country, and to require to be arrested at
once, and to end at once and forever, the
countenance of such indignity. The slave
trade 13 the alleged excuse. The Commit
tee will not discuss that. It is sufficient
that the United States, though often in
voked to do so, refuses to recognize the
right of police. They rest on the prin
ciple that the marine' under their flag
cannot be questioned without their con
sent, and th) committee deemed this a fit
occasion to cleclare it as a principle of the.
United States, admitting of no reserve or
qualification,' and to be maintained at any
cost.' ' .
The Committee "refrain from recom
mending further legislation, only for the
reason that the President has ordered all
our available navy to the infested waters
with orders to protect our llag. It is be
lieved that this measure will be serviceable
for the present io stopping the outrages.
The .subject has also been brought to the
notice or the offending power, both through
the Minister at London and the Minister
at Washington. ' We cannot, therefore,
until we receive a reply from Great Bri
tain, deeide on measures that will be a
guarantee of the future, for nothing short
of that will satisfy the American people.
Therefore, while refraining from recom
mending present legislation, the Commit
tee unanimously i .
, JJesomJThat American ships at sea,
under the American flag, .remain under
the jurisdiction of the. country to which
they belong, and therefore, that any visi
tation or molestation is an infraction of
the sovereignty of the United States. ,
J?orci,That these aggressions demand
such unequivocal explanation from Great
Britain as shall prevent their recurrence
forever. ' ' "
Resolved, That the Committee approve
of the action' of the Executive, and are
prepared to recommend such further leg
islation as circumstances may require."
' The New York Courier'a Washington
correspondence, of May 2Sth, says the
Government expects important intelli
gence from England by the next steamer.
It is understood that Lord Napier has gi
ven his opinion that his Government will
contend for the right of visitation aa a
distinct right of search. Should dispatches
from Mr. Dallas confirm that expectation
the relations of the two countries will
suddenly approach a. casus belli. The
Administration promises to meet the con
tingency -with , vigor. The instructions
thrown out are, that orders will be given
to bring in for adjudication all British
armed vessels committing acts cf outrage
upoa our commerce.. ;
Under present circumstances we are
called to considsr the miserable state of
our' navy, and cn this point quote from the
Washington blahs : ; . -
"Our little navy is called upon suddenly
to play a mart important part in the de
fence of the country. In times of jxjace
and scietyl the public mind is apt to fall
into lethargy m the subject of our defen
ces; but, when the a'arra runs throughout '
the land, and the country is called upon to
punish aggression cr defend itself, then
we naturally turn tc our gallant little na
vy.. Whit is its condition ? How isit
prepared to maintain the h:;:or, of the
courtry? Unfortunately, we ca-tnof re
ply very theerii to these questions.
Jealousy or incompetency -las stricken
frora tie ranks a large namber of takers;
and tad economy has permitted our ma
rine to become, perhaps, far beiciv that pf
any great Power of tjie globe, in "either
numbers, weight cf metal, cr efficiency.
We have built six large steam-frigates ;
had, perhaps, four efficient steamers pre
viously; and after that,"',ve' have nothing
tnat begins to compare wita tnose wno
may be our foes. - r -r i:-.rr,r
The steam marine cf England js ten
times as great as our whole naval force,.'
Does" not the present state of things sug
gest that we.should make' the nary .strong
er? On the eve of hostilities, with the
country clamorous for "redress of outrages
without an example almost, because no
warning was given, and no excuse exists,
two miserable little sailing vessels are all
our Government can send to the Gulf to
recruit a home squadron," Which, at .best,
is but a meagre affair to show" before the
Gulf ports while we artf astonishing the
natives of the East with everything new
or improving that adorns the . navy, and
our crack shin is taking on board a tele
graph cable in one cf the harbors of Eng
land. ' " " .
There is hardly a 'sin.JIe ooiection to
even a very powerful navy, except its ex
pense; and there are extravagancies and
follies enough, if urtailed," to support "a
very large establishment without the bur
den of a single cent. The Government
gives away, writh a liberal hand,- millions
in land; it has been making stupendous
improvements in Washington and all over
the country, and it maintains an army of
officers which might materially be reduc
ed. ' All sorts of extravagancies have
been so grafted on the ' system that it
would be well to cut them out.1 .In this
task the Administration would heartily
unite. ' We do earnestly, hope that Con
gress will not adjourn until a step in' this
direction be taken. The country is an
xious to see its defences put right.". It
will fully sustain the strcngest measures,
and hail the man as a public - benefactor
who leads off m the good work."
"Sleeping the Happy Hoars Away."
- Reynolds, of the Nebraska City News,
has gone East ; 'tis said . to fool some
weak minded woman. Under the head
"Editorial Correspondence, Steamer Han
nibal, May 24,"we find the following: -
"Brownville is as yet of but little, im
portance, except that she lias a Land Of
fice and an excellent paper, mechanically,
&t. btennen we passed wnue I was
sleeping, so I cannot speak of the pros
pects of the town asl should in all proba
bility if I had been awake." : " ' :.
Those acquainted with the facts cannot
fail to conclude that Mr. Reynolds was in
a very sleepy condition when he was tak
ing items. In fact his own history shows
him past taking notes, shortly after pass
ing this point." ' 'Tis , no Wonder, he felt
drowsy after making such an effort. Now,
Milton, we are glad you were content to
be easy with us ; that you was not as
funny as you could be." Please don't
strike us again, or we shall surely give
up all hopes of ever making a town at
this point. t -

From The Plains
A correspondent of the St. Joseph Ga
zette, writing from Ft. Laramie, gives
the following items of news, which, though
the date is not very recent, will be found
of interest to our readers : ;
"Col. Hoffman left here on the 25th
of April, attached to his forces which he
brought from Ft. Leavenworth, three
companies of infantry, 'which were sta
ticned here, for Camp, Scott, or rather
Col. Johnson s command; all looking well
and hearty, also one hundred and thirteen
wagons belongiug to Messrs. Russell &
Waddell, loaded with supplies for the
troops at Camp Scott. 1 . 1
"Go.v Cumming has gone into . Salt
Lake, and a compromise between the
United Slates and the Great Brigham
i oung. is anticipated.' Probsibly . he wil
have to sacrifice a few spirituals, of which
he has a great number. 7 ;
"At this moment, (the 1st May,) there
are three feet of snow in my door, the
heaviest snow storm we have had this
winter, and as the Platte River was up
before the snow, we can, we think, look
for high water."
The effects of the snow alluded to in
the above, have probably been manifest
ed in the rise which has for some days
been noticed in the river. The writer
anticipates a heavy rise. The June fresh
et, which is but just. now commencing
may be a heavy one, and m conjuction
with the other great tributaries of the
Mississippi the Missouri may add its por
lion to the Hood at the South. : '
Jin Lane In Tronic-
We4 learn from Mr. Symms cf the Hes
perian, that a difficulty occurred at Law
rence between Jim Lane and an aboil
tionist in relation to a claim. it appears
that both were armed, and after some
words Lane pulled out a pistol and in
flicted a mortal wound ; his antagonist re
turned the shot, but with little effect.
Lane is now in prison, awaiting his trial
at the next term of the District court to
be held in Lawrence. Si. Jo. Gaz.
From the following it will be seen that
Governor Richardson is after the I-::sia

Omaha, May 31, 1S58.
- KEPUBLICAU CONVtSTTIOIf.
The 27th was the dry named by the
Republicans for holding their Territorial
Convention, which was to assemble at
Omaha, for - the purpose of completing
their - organization. - It is presumed by
close observers of the movement of that
party during that day, that the Delegate-
Convention proved to be a failure, at least
a public one at which all parties had the
privilege of attending.
But one regular delegation has been in
from'other ' counties, , so far "as outsiders
have been able to learn, .although more
might have been present. ,The Conven
tion, or caucus more properly, was held in
secret; refusing to admit "democrats to
witness the proceedings, and therefore a
limited opportunity was offered .to; ascer
tain the exact number of delegates form
ing the Convention. ' '
Large posters were placed in public
places all over the city, notifying dele
gates to meet at Visher's Hall, and in
accordance writh said ' notices, several
democrats endeavored to g"ain admission,
but were confronted with the news that
the meeting of delegates would be. held
at a small office in the east part of townj
to which some democrats repared for the
purpose of witnessing' the proceedings,
supposing that the meeting, like all such,
would be public, but in attempting to en
ter were informed that it was entirely
private and giving them a broad hint that
their occupancy was anything but accept
able. ' ' .
The conclusion is that it resulted in a
secret caucus among the few of that party
residing hereabouts, and that no kind of
public, demonstration was made on that
Occasion. . . .
- The few known and knowing ones of
that party about town, were quite active
in reference to the matter, and the sup
position was that a general turnout was
An individual opinion is that the
the cause of Republicanism is imbecile
and powerless ia this Territory, and can
not accomplish many decided victories or
build up much strength in party organiza
tion, except they can be permitted to steal
the Popular Sovereignty plank "of the
Democratic Platform, which they appear
determined to accomplish if possible, for
the reason that they find the great major
ity of their party strenuously advocating
the doctrine of people's rights, as held by
the Democratic party, and promulgated
at every important election where princi
ples; are brought in question. ,
It was hoped that their numbers would
be sufficient, and their strength of ample
power, to be a thorn in the sides of -the
Democracy; that union and harmony
might prevail in the ranks of both parlies
caused by the honorable opposition given
by each in behalf of their own organiza
tion. It is however now to be feared that
the Democracy will har-r so lht!e to ccm

To a stranger accustomed to travelling
in the long settled portions cf the United
States, this town would present the ap
pearance of . a village of severa 1 years'
existence, whereas it is not yet more than
about eighteen months growth.
Here are several large and respectable
mercantile establishments, some of which
purchase their goods in the eastern cities,
and one or two of which are prepared to
do a jobbing business. Several hotels,
blacksmiths and mechanics, printing of
fice, meat-market, regular provision gro
cery stores as in the cities, and every
thing progressing prosperously. The
generosity of the proprietors is still ex
tended to those who deem proper to build
and become residents, and probably more

The liberal course pursued by the own

town upon its feet and enabled it to stand
even these hard and pressing times. The
houses are generally nicely painted and

this new country, where so many difficul

J. E. Johnson, editor of the Crescent City
Oraclej and formerly of the Bugle noto
riety, H like the editor of the Nebraska
Advertiser, has a great taste and dispo
sition to bp among shrubery, of which he
has a grjeat variety, which he brought
with him jon his return from his eastern
tour. Ilj: cannot be called lazy, because
he is never seen idle but if apparently
so, he is accumulating idea3 and informa
tion which he is seeking for other pur
poses than idle conversation.
He is practically a jack of all trades,
turning his hands to everything that
comes in his way which he finds important
should be done. Being free aiid easy in
conversation, you at once . become inter
ested with his address and manner of con
veying his thoughts to render them easily
understood; being practical in thought
and action he cannot otherwise be in lan
guage, which is simple and free from that
verbosity which is often found in great
talkers nnd writers. ' ',
' This farm is situated in a rich and fer
tile valley, leading in the bottom lands of
the Missouri river, and is so. located that
no view can be had of it until w ithin or
close to its limits, and consequently it
bursts upon the view without the least no
tice, when the mind and vision is suddenly
attracted from the wild and varied moun
tainous scenery around to the labors of
the husbandman, as found in cultivated
fields, decorated gardens, the convenience
of the dwellings, improvements of roads,
&c, which at once reminds- the traveller
of the old honored homestpad, where his
youthful days were spent in pleasant en
joyments, free from the cares and strifes
of maturer years.
The wheat and oats look well and pro
raise an abundant harvest if some des
tructive insect does not make its appear

sent nation.il Admmis'nliun, which claim for tbe Exe
cute e of the I'niictl Staie tbe authority to force Terri
tories into tbe L'uioa as States with institutions repug
nant to the people thereof; and also in ctmsi leratiou, of
the fact tfcat the friemls cf that Administration are
forming a party organization In this Territory to uiport
this odious assumption of power; it is our duty, as llep
pulican citizens of Nebri.-ka, to organize far the pur
pose of meeting the-lssue thus forced up-m do, and to
vindicate the nsht of a people of a Territory, when ap
plying fr adraiAMun as a State, "to regulate their own
institutions in their own way.
2. Th.it we re-affirm tbe platform of principles adapt
ed by the National Republican Convention at Philadel
phia, Ui June, 1864, so far as the sn:e are applicable to
the present exigencies of tbe cuuntry, and that we ar
ray ourselves under xUe banner of the party then organ
ized, -r i ' r . '
3 Tbat,wit"a Republicans cvery-wnere, we endorse
the great doctrines of the Declaration of lnde'endcnce,
and the Constitution or the Cnited States, and declare it
to be our unalterable determination to support those
bulwarks of our. prosperity, and wherever they have
beea departed from, to restore them to their original
pcrityas maintained by tbe founders of occ Republic. -
4 That the Territories are tbe common property of
the people, subject solely U ?he laws of Congress under
the Constitution of the United States-, and therefore no
institution which Congress mjy not constitutionally
establish; can have rightful existence wit jin their bor-
- L5 - That ,he tempt of ny state to en.-ibuh its
I 5oca' an1 peculiar inututions in any Territory, i in
infringement, not only upon the rights of the people
therein, but upon tbe rights of all the States; and the
local laws of Virginia and Kentucky, which reduce a
porluw o-f thmi ,.pitoo i.iri y, wmat t w mw rn-
operative in any Territory as the kcUool and tax lawrof
Kow York and Ohio. - -
6. That the action of the Administration in regard
to the Lecompton Constitution is in direct violation of
the K.aiua-Nebrabk act, and of the Constitution of
the United States. It violates the Kansas-Nebraska act
ancTits boasted principles of popular sovereignty, by its
attempt r force laws- upon a free people in airect oppo
sition to their will. It violates the Constitution of the
United States hy uing splendid bribes of proflt and co
vert threats by loss to accomplish tbe same purpose.
7. That f ree labor and free speech inherited by our
ancestors and guarantied to ua by the Constitution, are
our inalienable rights, and thai we will vigorously op
pose the introduction of any institution in eur Territory
that dezrades free labor or forbids free speech.
8. That the attempt of the present Administration to
affirm slavery as already existing in Kansas, is a base
attempt to violate the rights and privileges solemnly
pledged in the act organizing that Territory, and using
,tbe extrajudicial opinion of ' Judge Taney in delivering
the iipitiiun of tbe Supreme Court in the Drcd Scott case
i a gross attempt to corrupt the Constitution of the
United States and degrade the dignity and tho virtue of
the Supreme Court.
9. That the repeal of tbe Missouri Compromise, tak
ing bark the consideration which Freedom received for
permitting Slavery in Missouri, thus competing free
dom to tK'lit a socoud time for territory once solemnly
dedicated toit, on an entirely new principle, via : so
cal ted popular sovereignty, was an outrage on the sent i
mentsof the North an act of the grossest bad faith, and
forced upon u contrary to our wushos and votes.
' 10. That we are in favor of the appropriation of lands
by tbe general government, for tbe purpose of building
tbe Grand Fjcitlc Railroad, and all branches of said road
which nwy be necessary for the convenience and benefit
of tbe country. -
11 That we are in favor of the Homestead Bill,
wliich has been recently introduced in tho Senate of the
United States, donating one hnmlred an4 sixty acres of
the national domain tu the actual settler thereon, as a
Homestead, and that we Condemn the late action of a
Democratic Congress in deferring this Hill and tbe Pacific
Railroad to another session.
12. We will extend tbe righthaml of fellowship to all
who are opposed to the present Administration in its at
tempts to force slavery into new Territories, ami bribe
free men to vote in opposition to principles previously
avowed and honestly held.
13. We are oppeed to all Banks of Issue wbo.e bills
and deposits are nut safely secured from mismanagement
14. That we are in favor of one general act of Congress
under which all Territories may be organized on tho same
basis, and do all their own local legislation, until their
application to Congress as States with a Republican con
stitution, which has been approved by the people of such
States applying for admission, and when admitted as
States, it shall be on a uniform basis..
15. That the Republicans be requested to organize
Societies wherever practicable in thtir respective conn
ties, to act in co-operation with the Territorial organiza
