THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 23, 1859.
" The principal, in fact,, all absorbing
question, connected with the two' political
Conventions to tneet next month, is who
will be the Delegate; or rather, who will
be' candidates. It is well known that
every important locality in the Territory
is pressing what it calls its "claims." We
rail the attention of the people South of
Platte, and more particularly those in the
counties of Nemaha, Richardson, Paw
nee, Gage, Clay, and Johnson, vhose
interests are: perhaps more closely con
nected than any other portion of the Ter
ritory, to be watchful, and see that they
are fairly, honestly, and equitably dealt
with, and thatei'r claims are regarded!
"What have you ever had, either in ben
efits from appropriations by general gov
ernment, or in the enjoyment of bestow
ed favors. in any shape ? Not one thing!
.Is not the country embraced within these
boundaries named, the portion of Nebras
ka ? Has it not; is it not now making
more advancements . in. true, reliable,
back-bone progress, end becoming more
rnpidly populatod than any other portion
of the Territory ? ' We believe it. Has
it" not then claims, strong "claims; claims
no reasonable man or locality, can for a
moment dispute! Will those claims be
asserted? We urge the people, as they
value their future welfare and prosperity,
to fail not in sodomy.
We want.it understood, that by treat
ing this subject as we do, it is farthest
from our desire or intention to arouse any
old North and South Platte feuds. We
Avould they were forever buried. We
simply propose to our people to do what
other localities have always done, and we
have neglected, viz: look after our inter
ests. . We have no fault to find with other
portions of the Territory in working for,
and obtaining all they can; in so doing
they. are' only performing their duty.
Hitherto local feelings and interests have

they will do so still, and it is worse than
nonsense that we suffer ourselves to be
led into somnambulic influences by lulla
by songs, or have "wool pulled over our
pvps" rnntinnnllv. -It is not onlv desira
ble on.our part, but in fact we are anxi-
ous that party lines might be drawn:
provided circumstances will admit, and
good faith be exercised. . -We have
watched very closely every movement
connected with talked of party organiza
" tions in Nebraska, and have never yet
failed to discover "a nisjer in the wood
pile" the whole affair to be the schem
ing trick of some man or clique; the
masses were not there, as was shown by
ballot-box proof. Now if the people in

were party organizations sought in good
faith. . They have always had the Dele
gate, together with every dollar of gov
ernment appropriations; and, with due
respect, we think them rather greedy in
still claiming the "lion's share," which
they, may possibly-get if South Platte
sleeps on her post, or fails to keep run of
the cards. At least such may be the re
sult in the Conventions. It will be observ
ed that the representation in these Con
tentions is equally divided between North
rPlatte and South Platte! ' The game is
to divide the South; or, if that cannot be
done; to foist upon us a "Southern man
. with Northern principles,' a man whose
every intere&t and sympathy is North of
the Platte. This is all shrewd if well car
ried out, and if success crowns the effort,
we can. only give credit to the projectors.
The w ires are thought to be laid in Ne
- maha and Richardson counties already.
. Will they work ? ' -We shall see. Re
member, gentlemen, not to "charge too
heavily- along the line." Appeals are yet
in vogue; the decision' of a few scheming
wire pullers may not stand as .the final
- judgment in the case. The people have a
peculiar way of their own in speaking
through, the ballot-box ! So look out !
Again we say to the people South of
Platte, more particularly in the counties
named, look- to your interests! Suffer
" jiot yourselves to be. led into pit-falls.
."Not one of these six counties is deficient
in Delegate ."timber, . why not go into
the contest, either in Convention or at the
ballot-box, asserting your rights, and
knowing which, you dare maintain them.
Let there be. consultation; concert of
"action; your man selected, and in "solid
phalanx' stand by him, first, Jast and all
the time!. Success may not-crown the
first effort, but.it is sure iii the end, and
" we have nothing to lose,' but all to gain in
making the effort. We have had nothing
have nothing novv, nor will we ever
nave until we askj insist j demand, require!
We know that if the people in the six
counties named will .only wake to their
own interests, they will no longer tamely
Bubmit to being cast aside as the "fag
end.'- Our local interests are equally as
valuable as those of any other point, and
there is no reason under' heaven why we
should fail to take care of them. Other
localities allow nothing to rise abgve or
conflict with their local interests. True,
they sometimes talk of party lines, cf
differences among leading men, and such
like; but when thoy come to act, all else
is laid aside, and they "get at their work"
as one man.
. We shall refer to, and urge this impor
tant matter from time to time, from now
until the election, and hope to be able to
convince the people of the vital import
ance of action, energetic, united and
prompt. ' .
The European War.
The anxious watchers of the European
war are just now suddenly set back by the
intelligence that an armistice has been
agreed upon, extending to the 15th of
August. It stipulates that commercial
vessels, without distinction of flag, shall
be allowed to navigate the "Adriatic un
The Paris Jloniteur cautions the public
against misunderstanding the armistice,
and says that negotiations may be recom
menced, but it does not see how the war
may be terminated. Prior to the declar
ation of tbie armistice, the Sardinians had
proceeded vigorously in the siege of Pes
chiera. But this and other movements
have now lost their interest.
The London Times says with regard to
the armistice, that there is little to com
municate beyond what the public already
know. "All that seems to be well authen
ticated is that the proposal came from
France, and was the result of the Empe
ror's own determination. That the Em
peror Napoleon should stop short in a ca
reer of victory and make overtures to the
foe, whom he has defeated in two pitched
battles, and hurled back to the limits of
Lombardy, argues the moderation or the
necessities of the French ruler, and we
can hardly believe that the latter have
been the cause of this sudden resolve.
m While the action of Louis Napoleon
in this movement may be astonishing and
inexplicable to us, yet, in the language of
fhe London Times, "there -is probably
concealed under it some subtle scheme,
the nature and scope of which will be
seen only as the events he has prepared
shall develope themselves. Meanwhile,
it will no doubt be fruitful in conjecture
and speculation airy fabricsof the mind,
which will be dissipated by the next new
astonishment which Napoleon is probably
now busy tn preparing, quite as much to
his own aggrandizement as for the world's
wonder." It is but in keeping with his
adventure at Boulogne, the similar one
at Strasbourg, his demand to legislate for
France in the face of a standing law
which had banished him from that coun
try forever, his elevation to the Presid
ency, his covp d'etat and Imperial domi
nion, his New Year salute to the Austri
an envoy, Baron Hubner.
Americans at the Scat of War.
Hon. II. J. Raymond, of the N. Y.
Times, and Hon. M. Forsyth, of N. Y.,
are now at the seat of war. Mr. Jerome
Bonaparte, of Baltimore, was also to have
left on Saturday, en route for Italy, but
is still in Paris. Dr. W. E. Johnson, of
Ohio, for several years a resident of Pa
ris, left with Messrs. Raymond and For
syth, intending to obtain, I am tokl, from
actual observation, the materials for a
future history of the war, which, from
his accomplished pen, cannot fail to be
interesting and popular. Before leaving
Paris, Dr. J. had an interview with the
French Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Paris Correspondence ,V. Y. Express.
We have watched with interest, for
years past, the progress of our old friend
and associate Dr. Johnson, and are glad
to know his course is still "onward and
upward." We worked beside him at the
'case' when an apprentice, and afterwards
he served us in the capacity of "jour."
He worked alternatively at case and
studied medicine in Troy and Sidney,
Ohio, in summer ; and in winter at New
York, where he graduated with the high
est honors. He went to France in 181S,
in order to obtain further instructions in
the medical colleges of Paris. He there
became the correspondent of the Ohio
State Journal, Cincinnati Gazette, New
York Tribune; is "Mdakojf" of the
New York Times, whose articles have
attracted much attention of late.
From the Mines.
Notwithstanding the continued favora
ble and reliable reports from the Neb
raska Gold Mines, there are those conti
nually returning from the mines, who,
from various causes, have been unable to
make it pay. We have conversed with
a great number of late, and cannot bet
ter give present news than by extract
ing the following from a letter by V .
H. Kidd, of St. Louis, under date July 6:
Messrs. Gridley & Henderson, Lewis,
Cass county, Iowa, opened their claim
June 13th. Purchased it from Mr. Gre
gory for S2 1,000. Up to the 22d had
taken out S4,23S, with 3 sluices and 9
J. E. Leeper, Farmington, Illinois,
purchased his claim from W. Defrees,
South; Bend, Ind., for $7,500. From
June 3d to 22d,he had taken out S5.05S,
with 3'sluices and 9 men. The largest
amount taken out in one day was 81,009.
He informs me that he has sold 25 feet
of his claim for $10,000. Mr. Leeper
kindly presented me with a large pan oi
rich dirt out of his claim, which I intend
taking with me to St. Louis, with some
fine specimens of quartz rock, received
from Messrs. Gridley & Henderson.
S. J. Scott and W. W. Webster, Lor
ain county. Ohio, had just opened their
claim and made one dollar to the pan of
dirt the first day. They assure me that
the quartz rock in this lead is very rich.
James Emerson, Logan county, Ohio,
purchased his claim from Mr. Gregory
for S-40,000, calling for 600 feet. He
informs me that an offer of $10,000 has
been made him for his bargain by two
Englishmen (Australian miners). The
lead is just opened and is considered
worth $100,000. The largest amount of
gold taken out of one pan of dirt in this
claim is $15,50. I have a very fine spe
cimen of pure gold taken from this claim.
There are many claims in this district
paying comparatively well, others doing a
little, and a large majority barely paying
expenses, some losing money, in hopes
that by going deeper, their leads will
prove more profitable.
Notwithstanding this favorable report,
(and were I to make use of your paper
by giving a report from the many mining
districts, especially the Russell diggings.
the result would be equally gratifying,)
yet it is to be regretted that there are
thousands who have spent all their means
to come to this country, plodded their way
for weeks, and some for months, through
those rugged mountains, toiling, in vain,
day after day to discover a "lead," and
finally have had to return to their homes
disheartened, feeling confident there is
no fortune wrapped in the bosom of the
Rocky Mountains for them. The great
majority of such cases result from want
of experience in searching for a "lead,
and knowing the "blossom." The large
majority of the gold-seekers, however,
are men destitute of experience, intelli
ffence and perseverance, who could not
tell a gold lead from an ant-hill; and, if
given the best lead on the mountain,
could not believe that there was gold suf
ficient to pay them, because it is not vis
ible to the naked eye. It is deplorable
that such men ever leave their fireside.
This class of individuals are so largely in
the majority here that they keep down
the price of labor to $2,50 per day, and
there are some working here at as low as
$1 per day and board, while there are
plenty of leads that will justify the pay
mentof $10 per day for ordinary labor.
Hence it is that so many exaggerations
and conflicting reports are carried
throughout the Union.
The journev here is a difficult, labori
ous and expensive one, -subjecting the
traveler to many trials and privations,
such as he probably has never been accus
tomed to at home; consequently he should
consider well before leaving his comfort
able home, if he is prepared to endure
those privations; and, in case he leaves
for this region, come fully equipped with
provisions aud money the latter being
quite as necessary as the former. For in
casre a man is fortunate enough to find a
claim, it will take him from $200 to
$2000 to procure water and erect a sluice.
These, and many other reasons, induce
me to caution men, particularly on this
subject, as there are many here now, who
if they had the means would willingly

there was a large majority of the Dele

difference of opinion as to how it should
be accomplished : Some are in favor of
inserting the boundary in the Constitu

Killed by the Indians.
Wre see by the following, which we ex
tract from a letter written at Denver City
July 6, that two Nebraskians have been
murdered by the Yute Indians, and tho
third, our old friend Slaughter, of Platts
mouth, very narrowly escaped :
"Dr. L. J. Shanks, Niobrarah, Mr.
Kennedy, Plattsmouth, N. T.,and a Mr.
Slaughter, went out prospecting on the
20ih about 20 miles west of Gregory dig
gings. On the following Sunday five
Yute Indians came to their camp, and
were kindly treated, haying received
some provisions aud other courtesies. At
that lime there were no unfavorable indi
cations on the part of the Indians. Mr.
Slaughter and party left their camp at
noon, and traveled a short distance to an
open or grassy space in the mountain,
where their pitched their tent for the
night. Dr. Shanks took a walk on the
hill to view the surrounding country,
while Mr. Slaughter and Kennedy went
out to prospect. Shortly after the latter
had left the camp, ten rifles were fired,
one of the balls striking Mr. Kennedy in
the side, passing in range of his heart.
Mr. Slaughter drew him down behind a
rock, when Mr. K. remarked that he
could npt last long. Mr. Slaughter then
left him and went in the direction the
Doctor had gone, and saw the Indians
scalping him. Mr. S. then hid himself
in a cave, where he remained until night
when he fled for Gregory's diggings, ar
riving safe but bereft of everything.

Doy, who was a short time ago convict
ed at St. Joseph for negro stealing, and
sentenced to the Penitentiary, made his
escape from the St. Joseph jail on Satur
day last, in a very ingenious manner.
A party of his friends, seven in num
ber, called up the jailor at a late hour of
night, saying they had arrested a horse
thief, and desired him confined in jail!
The jailor opened the door, when the
party changed their notion, and instead
of putting in a prisoner, took one oat
Doy, and escaped with him. Shrewdly
managed, surely ; yet very imprudent and
unfortunate, as will be seen in the end.
The Washington Star of the 23d. in
speaking of the difficulties with the Paw
nee Indians in this Territory, says :
"Active measures are bein taken by
the U. S. Indian Office to guard against
difficulties existing between the Pawnee
Indians and the whites, and for this pur
pose a special agent has been appointed
to inquire into the recent conduct of those
Indians, and to withhold their annuities
in case they should have been at fault.
Instructions are now being prepared at
the omce for the special agent. The ap
pointment of a local agent to reside among
the Pawnees is in contemplation.
