It is a well known fact that there are
differences of opinion among Democrats
in all- portions cf the Union the cause
of which we do not propose to investigate
at present should these" difference j cua
.' tinuc, it requires no supernatural euJow-
ment of prophetic skill to foretell the dis
m astrous effect. There never has been,
perhaps, a lime in the history cf the pr.rty,
when a greater oneness of acucn wis de
manded. The enemies cf democracy are
doing all in their power to increase and
keep up the disunion which unfortunately
criminated over the admission cf Kansas
unJer the Lecompton Ccnstitution.
We h:rve always been taught to believe
that pure Democracy, under all circum
stances, had for its object the establish
ment and sacred maintenance cf princi
ple ; that ii woulJ rise or fall with prin
ciple, adhering to it in adversity "as well
as prosperity; this we consider to be
Democracy,' and will not allow anything
differing from this to be substituted.
We desire an organization cf Demo
crats, especially Nebraska Democrats;
yet do not feel so eager for it as to sub
, scribe to a fleeting shadow for a great
principle, which has been, is now, and
always will be, the basis cf all democrat
ic governments. We declare feeling
, confident no one will controvert ii if
State-Sovereignty and the right cf the
people to attend to their own local affairs
are eschewed by the Democratic platform
defeat will be inevitable. ' A fact so clear
- cannot be overlooked by honest democrats.
These are principles which must rule,
otherwise the safety of the Union will be
imperiled, the peace and harmony of every
community destroyed, anarchy, confusion
and disorder must prevail everywhere in
our land principles that are so intimate
ly and inseparably interwoven with the
independence and patriotic dignity of
American citizens cannot be lost sight of
' or extinguished. They are principles of
t vitality and will live while the great Dem
ocratic heart continues to throb. Men
may discourse loud and eloquently about
substitutes, but when such are submitted
;to the test it will be discovered that they
are worthless; that the people will reject
them, and from their decision there should
be no appeal to the President or to Con-
. Now it is-nonsense, foolishness ard
' absurdity to talk about organizing a Den.-
ocratic party in Nebraska without Pop
- ular-Sovereignty, and when we use this
term we mean just what we say. It must
be genuine, Democratic Popular-Sove-'
reignty, no shadow without the substance
no "iking"- without a back-bone, but the
full, broad and comprehensive Popular
Sovereignty as set forth in the Cincinnati
Democratic Platform. But for fear some
. cf cur readers may net comprehend our
interpretation cf Popular-Sovereignty we
will merely refer them to the said Nation-
al Platform and tolhe Democratic speeches
made ia favor of it during the last Presi
dential election. We have, and we hope
many of our readers also have, a distinct
recollection of those stirring time?, and
, the oft repeated arguments to sustain the
principles of Popular-Sovereignty, and
the rights of all the citizens of all Ter
ritories to establish or to prevent the in
troduction of domestic institutions; tha.
they would be committed wholly into the
hands of the people and that we were to
have just such laws as suited us not incon
sistent with the Constitution of the United
States. Excepting this solitary restric
tion, we were to be as free as the wind
that sweeps over our beautiful prairies
The attempt to defeat the intcntisncf the
Kansas-Nchraska Act is frccli ia the
memory cf every reader, and that the
blow was directed by a few cf its pro
fessed advocates and friends.
Nebraska Democrats cannot at this day
accept cf a platform unless it has for its
foundation the principles cf the Kansas
Nebraska Bill, the Cincinnati Democratic
Platform as expounded by the Great Am
erican Statesman Stephen A. Dcijghs
such being the bus is cf organization we
have no fears as to the result.

Now, how is it with the physician and ad
ministrator of medicine? Where is the
test ? Rut few men, otherwise intelligent,
are competent judges cf the qualifications
of physicians. They are disposed to treat
all who offer to practice medicine as
worthy of the name ; and frequently the

cf no qualification whatever, rises, per

. DrKvxR CiT-y,:Jime 1, '59. ,
I closed my last letter with the remark
that reports cf rich discoveries in the val
ley cf the Ncrth Perk, of Vasj-aer's Fork,
cf the Scuth Fh.tte, had reached this city,
and tha t -1 contemplated a trip to the al
leged sold fields, for the purp'osa cf in-restig-arg
the matter. I have jsst . re
turned from this mountain tour, and this
e mbraces its frrits:
not far from the Gregory claim, with an
average result of $100 per day.
In the above the first and most favorable
slratas are enumerated. In considering
the yield of these leads, however, it must
not be forgotten that but one of the In
diana parties has had sluices to work with
while all others worked simply with ordi
nary pans, in consequence of the impossi
bility of lumber; which want, of course,
caused a great waste of the extremely
small particles of which the gold found
along Cherry Creek consists. , And again
it must be remembered that all the owners
of. the different leads were thus far
obliged to pack their dirt in sacks cn their
own shoulders from a height of several
hundred . feet to the water, which incon
venience naturally impedes their working
and greatly reduces the daily yields.
Most of the gold mentioned in the
above as having been taken out, I have
seen with my own eyes and held with my
own hand. Altogether I know cf about
$5,000 worth to be in the possession of
ditlerent individuals, . all of which was
taken out within a week. As soon a3 the
required sluices can be had, the daily yield
ct the leads thus lar struck will certainly
The gold is of. the species, known by
the name cf quartz gold.- The leads of
sand are, as already stated,, surrounded
by beds of rotten and bursted quartz, from
which the gold settled m the sand by vir
tue of it3 specific gravity. It is so fine
that it is difhcult to, perceive with the
naked eve when mixed with the dirt. It
has to be gathered with quicksilver.
Mr. Martin Field, the head of , the
mail department of the Express Company,
visited the diggings simultaneously with
me. At the Jackson diggings he bought
a small lump of gold of a miner, that is
valued at 4, and at the Gregory's he
washed out a pan cf dirt taken from the
Indiana claims, which yielded 65. The'
miners live, for the present, mostly in teni
and the branches of the colicssal pine
trees, uncle toresis, of which cover the ui?
gings. A mining town will doubtless soon
