We Lave on our talle, a vast number
of unanswered letters from various sec
tions, and on various subjects which,
from ihe pressure of outside affairs we
are Unable lo answer as promptly as we
desire. After the election we will attend
Councilman from Nemaha.
It. W. Ft RVAs, tsqM of the Brou-n-rtlh
Advertiser, announces himself a can
didate for re-election.
Mr. Furnas has represented his dis
trict for a term of two years in the Leg
islature, and up to the time of the split
last winter, had represented it well, and
with jrreat benefit to the interests of his
constituents. In jroinwith the Florence
seceders Mr. F. took a step which he
has since, no doubt, heartily repented
and which he' could net, we think, be
induced to repeat. We are told by gen
tlemen from Nemaha county, that the
chances are greatly in favor of bis re
election. Should Mr. F. be successful
we shall rladlv hail his election, provided
he comes up to the Capital prepared to
ignore all sectional issues, and to devote
the talent and energy which he possesses
in a high degree, to the real interests of
his constituents and the Territory.-Oma
The above coming from the point it
does, and owing to the existing circum
stances relative to matters touched upon
by our friend, the editor, we would be
ungrateful did we not acknowledge an
appreciation of the compliment paid us
It has been, and shall continue to be
our aim, in private or public capacities, to
commit no act tending in the least degree
to forfeit the confidence and respect of
even those with whom we diil'er on ques
tions of policy.
As a representative of the people, our
motto shall be Nebraska; as a journal
ist Nemaha county ; as a privato citi
zen Brownville. Pursuing such a course
we cannot be far in error.
In regard to "going with the Florence
seceders," we were governed by what
we then conceived to be our duty ; and
we have never since had the slightest
reason to "repent" of so doing. 'Tis true
we did not agree with the majority as to
that coarse being the bnt one to pursue
under the circumstances. But a major
ity of those with whom we sympathized
thought and acted differently from our
notions, and the path of duty to us was
So far as "ignoring sectional issues" is
concerned, we disclaim ever having had
any thing to do with them as such. When
we see wrongs being, or attempted to be
perpetrated by any power, it matters not by
whom, or from what source, or upon whom,
we will be found in the defense of right
and justice. We do not advocate the re
moval of the Capital for the purpose of in
juring or retarding the progress of Omaha
far from it. We want it removed up
on a basis calculated to benefit .Ytbraska., j
So far as we are personally concerned
we claim to have some as warm friends
at Omaha as we have anywhere; and we
know, too, that we have there, as bitter,
unprincipled enemies as any man ever
had; such, too, for no just reason under
We beg to assure our friend of the
Times, that if returned to the Council,
we go as the representative of the entire
people of Nemaha County; shall en
deavor to reflect their views which we
claim clearly to understand to labor for
their interests, and advance the gener
al welfare and prosperity of Nebraska.

Learning that a report is in circulation
.that I am a candidate for the office of
Councilman, I take this public manner of
saying that I am not a candidate, nor can
I be induced to become such. The report
has been gotten up undoubtedly for the

I ask as a favor, therefore, that no one,
"however friendly to me, will throw away
their vote by casting it forme; Lut wi'l

Mr. Editor :
The election now pending in this Ter-ritm-v
is one of unusual importance. Its
result will doubtless affect the interest of
our citizens for a long time to come. Not
that there are any very momentous ques
tions at issue, or that it will in any man
ner iniluer.ee the political aspect of the
times. But, if I read the signs aright,
the people cf Nebraska are impatient of
being kept in such a slate of pupilage and
denendance, as that all their laws must
be made and construed for the benefit of
persons who have no interest in the Ter
ritory, only so far as the necessities of
the settlers afford opportunities for spec
ulators and stock-jobbers to practice their
deceits. The people have not been si
lent and uncomplaining spectators of the
abuses which have been practiced upon
them by the machinations and intrigues
of their rulers and lawgivers. Twice
have they been baffled in their efforts to
obtain the enactment of Territorial laws.
Four years have passed since the Terri
tory was organized, and in many re
spects we are no better off than if a leg
islative assembly had never been con
vened. Under these circumstances, it is
but reasonable to suppose that some anx
iety should be manifested by the people
that ihe men who may be elected to the
next Legislature should be those whose
character for integrity, firmness, pru
dence and sagacity, entitle them to the
confidence of their constituents.
The same causes which have hereto
fore embarrassed and obstructed the work
of our legislators, still exists ; and it is
probable that no movement can be made
towards unravelling the snarl of our le-T-islative
affairs, without raising the same
issue which is so ol noxious to a certain
clique at the Capital.
The people, are no doubt, anxious that
the next Legislature should proceed at
once to its legitimate business, namely :
that it should provide a competent code of
laws, and act upon such other measures
as will relieve the embarassments and
provide for the wants of the settlers.
Some, unmindful of the experience of the
last legislature, have even required their
candidates to pledge themselves to this
course, while some have gratuitously of
ferred their pledges to this effect.
The reason assigned for these pledges
is, that a certain unscrupulous faction will
prevent all legislation so long as the re
moval of the Capital is agitated ; and that
this clique, though not strong enough to
defeat the passage cf a law providing for
a removal of the Capital, yet, is strong
enough and unscrupulous enough to ob-
struct all subsequent legislation. Admit
ting that such is the case, the course pro
posed cannot obviate the difficulty. For
if it is understood that such pledges have
been made, it will naturally be inferred
that the question of removing the Capi
tal is still in mind, and enly deferred for
expediency, until after certain measures
have been passed ; then the question will
be renewed. The result will be, that
those who would defeat the removal of
the Capital will seek every pretense for
obstructing legislation, and will allow no
laws to be passed until the very last mo
ments of the session. Then perhaps if
there is time to hurry off the whole bu
siness of the term in a bundle it may be
done, so that the Capital is not" disturbed.
Such was the course adopted at the last
session, and what was the result ? Our
representatives found that the term was
likely to terminate without their ieing
able to accomplish anything. The Capl
tal issue was not raised until this was ap
parent ; and it is an evident fact that the
interests of the Territory would notliae
been better provided for than they were,
had the bill providing for the removal of
the Capital not been presented.
Besides, a pledge of this kind would
place the representatives under a re
straint which ought not to be endured. It
is a tiled ere of allerriance to the regal
rowdies of a faction -who are not worthy
of so much respect.
It may be the better policy to choose
what seems the lesser of the two evil
and avoid agitating a subject which must
cause dissention and disturbance. But i
nothing can be gained by forbearing to
exercise an undoubted right, the right o
free discussion, then it seems the sooner
the issue is made and decided the better
Instead, then, of hampering our Rep
resentatives with pledges and restrictions
we ought to select resolute inen of tried
discretion and integrity, jand leave' them
free to act as the exigencies of the case
may require. We want men who are de
voted to the public welfare, and who care
not for party, section, or locality ; but
who can divest themselves of all preju
dice and favor, and act according to the
dictates of a just and genercus public spir
it. By such men, almost any question
which concerns the public can easily be
settled. With regard to the vexed ques
tion concerning the capital, it is doubtful
whether it can be avoided. It is doubt
ful if anything can be done till that is
disposed of It has thus far been the bane
of our peace; and if allowed much lon
ger to infect our legislative councils, it will
create difficulties not easily remedied.
Let it then Uisposed oT at "once, cither
by completing the act of removal, or by
setting it asiJe as inexpedient, or sub
mitting it to a vote of the people.
Falls City, July 17, ISoS.
Mr. Editor :
We have been blessed with an abun
dance of rain for the past few days. The
Great Nemaha, worthy of its name, has
been sweeping away fences, wood, &.c.;
overflowing the bottom, converting the
future city of Nemaha Falls into a beau
tiful lake, and threatening seriously to
oust the inhabitants by summary process
from Hemes to Stumbos. The inhabi
tants were thoughtful enough to prepare
provisions against the blockade, and
whilst listening to the roar of the Falls,
and the mad dashing of the waters, can
amuse their leisure bv preparing rafts
and speculating relative value of water
The bridge and saw mill over Muddy
were in a precarious position at the last
advices ; the banks were caving as rap
idly as Nebraska banks in general ; the
water surrounded the bridge, and threat
ened to embrace it asloveingly as our nu
merous candidates greet their constitu
ency. The excitement of horse stealing has
scmcwhat subsided ; the present agita
tion is the navigation of the Nemaha, the
employment of the water power, and the
coming election for the Legislature, and
the final settlement of the County-scat
.. The citizens of this county seem much
dissatisfied with the removal of the coun
ty seat to alem. They think they
should have the right, under a'general act
of the Legislature, to petition the Com
missioners for an election for that pur
pose, and fix that matter for themselves.
They will ask at the hands of the present
Legislature some provision by which their
interests and convenience can be the best
Our candidates are visiting the good
people of the county, and, it is to be
hoped, men of the proper stamp will be
sent to represent us.
" On next Monday, they will speak for
.themselves, and we will expect a display
of eloquence seldom equalled.
Crops are promising. Corn is A, No.
1, and the wheat crop will probably yield
enough for home consumption. The
time is fast coming when the panic of
wheat failure in Misssouri will cease to
trouble our citizens. With a few more
good mills, and a few manufacturing es
tablishments, we will soon become self
supporting, and aid to build up our own
Territory, instead of pouring our treas
ures into the lap of our sister Slates.

there was a report in circulation that Doc

It must be apparent to every one that

use the Swamp Lands in the construction

because they will go farther in the con

any future time for many years to come.
Second; because the times are hard, and
many persons out of employment, and by
using the Swamp Lands now, employment
would be furnished to the laboring'class,

Russian Sunken Fleet.
Letters have been received at Boston,
dated Sebastopol, May 21, by which we
learn that the work of raising the sunken
Russian fleet progresses rapidly and with
remarkable success, We make the fol
lowing extract from the letters:
"We have raised whole the sixteen-gun
vessel-of-war Smelya, and brought her
down to the Admiralty, slung between the
caissons last night. She had over three
tons of mud in her hold and on her decks
besides all her rigging, iron tangs, pig
iron ballasts, &c. She laid up the South
Bay, and as the rains wash the steep
banks that comprise the sides of the bay,
the soil being quite alluvial, it constantly
keeps the water in a rolled state, depo
siting the sediments on the deck and in
the hatches; this, however, is not the case
in the main harbor, and Ave only tried
this vessel to test the machinery before
jroing to work at raising the heavier ves
sels. The caissons operated as well as
we expected, and at no time did we
use over one-fifth of their power.
This, of course, demonstrates the feasi
bility of raising any and every ship in
the harbor of sebastopol. e shall, un
doubtedly, raise the whole fleet this sum
mer. Next week we shall raise a steam
ecvhole, alfchaU follow with raising all

We learn that the best article of flour

ket already, and we would not be surpri
sed to hear of that article selling in our

provisions since it was a State as at this

crops, were never more promising. Men
