Land Business In Nemaha Land
' On.MbDdny last the office at this place
opened for private entries. Col. Nixoif
very reneroufly, refused to receive appli
cations for private entries before 12
o'clock, giving the settlers an opportunity
to file during the forenoon under tne
benefit of the 15th section of the act of
4th Sept. ISil; by which a year's time i
secured in which to pay for the land. One
hundred and twenty-seven filings were
made before 12 o'clock, fifty-two of which
were made before breakfast.
The vacant lands in this District have
been examined personally by those wish
ing to invest, and being very valuable, are
sought after with much zeal. Purchasers
take their "turn" at the counter; are al
lowed to enter no more than 640 acres,
each, at a time. Up to yesterday evening
two and one-half days the number of
k acres entered at private entry with war
rants was 21,875 acres.
And THUS is the "National Treasury
replenished;" and the "four millions"
promised by the Secretary of the Interior
to the Secretary of the Treasury, as pro
ceeds from sales of public lands, being
rapidly made up.
The Way It Can Be Done!
We have, frequently through the col
umns of our paper, and in private letters
endeavored to convince people east in
the old States especially those with
limited means and possessions, how much
better they can do for themselves and
families by coming west, than by remain
ing in the older and more densly popula
ted portions of the country. The past
week a case just in point has come to our
knowledge, A man, in one of the old
States, with quite a family, had by inces
sant toil, succeeded in securing eighty
acres of ' land, ofi" of which he was barely
making a living. lie was finally induced
to try his fortune in the "West," and ac
cordingly ".sold out" and came to this
county. With the proceeds from his
'sales, he here purchased thirteen hundred
and txccrJy acres ; for 320 of which he paid
10 per acre, and calculates he has money
sufficient left, to fence 1000 acres of
his land! This man, besides having a
farm of his own, four times as large as
the one lie before owned, and more pro
ductive ; with equally as good market, has
for distribution among his five children
tiro hundred acres of land to each! Com
ment is unnecessary and we only mention
this for the benefit of 'doubting ones' in
the . States, as a case having actually
oc cured. .

Mr. Editor: For the benefit of Ne
braska Sheep iaisers, I will give you my
experience for the last year: I had 23
head of sheep last fall, which I kept on
corn and hay so as to keep them mutton
fat through the winter. This spring, or
rather about the 10th of June, I had them
sheared and obtained 204 lbs. of wool,
nnd from one yearli ng buck 15 lbs.

Omaha, Aug. 15, 1S59.
On last Wednesday, about 2 o'clock P.
M., we had the heaviest hail storm that
wc have witnessed for many years. Whilst
approaching it was heard for miles in
the distance, and presented the appear
ance and roaring noise as that of a rush
ing and destructive tornado.
The hail storm and sunshine apparently
mingled as it came within the scope of
our vision, presenting a beautiful and di
versified landscape constituting cur sur
roundings." Some of the hail were picked
up at our door as large as small hens
eggs. After the hail had partially ceased
to fall, a heavy rain ensued, which com
pletely drenched the earth, much to the
advantage of the young crops.
The grain fields of this portion of the
Territory, so far as we have been able to
ascertain the facts, are likely to yield an
abundant harvest to the husbandman, in
consideration of fu industry and perse

and quality. There being no rust, nor
anything to do the crops damage, we may

DUTY Or THE DEMOCRACY.
Inasmuch as this is the first time the
Democracy of Nebraska have successfully
attempted, as we hope, to nominate can
didates for Territorial offices, it is to be
desired that they should so manage the
affairs of the party as to bring to bear the
greatest possible strength to its support,
by the nomination of well qualified con
servative gentlemen, who will carry with
them the true principles of the party, po
pularity of person, decision of character,
honesty of purpose, the welfare of all
portions of their constituency, and able
It should be the desire and pleasure of
the Democracy of each county, to place
in nomination on their county tickets such
individuals as will faithfully serve them
and give credit and influence to the gen
eral ticket of the Territory, thereby work
ing harmoniously together fcr the welfare
of the entire party, as well as for their
own safety and benefit as to their parti
There are many plans concocted by the
opposition to defeat us, and therefore it
more particularly requires extreme cau
tion both in the offensive and defensive
operations of the party.
It has been recently proposed by some
individuals to make an immediate effort
towards the organization of the State of
Nebraska, for which object it is suggest
ed that the Governor' be induced to call
together the Representatives of the Ter
ritory in extra session as soon as most
When assembled it will be recommended
to the Legislative Assembly to proceed
immediately to make the necessary pre
parations, by consulting- the several tribes
in the western portion of the Territory,
for the purpose of obtaining their consent
to have a Territorial and Stale govern
ment over their dominion.
The Nebraska Gold Mines, in the vi
cinity of Long's Peak, now embrace a
large and rapidly increasing population,
which, they claim, require immediate
protection through the instrumentality of
the law. And therefore the proposition
is to define the boundaries of new counties
along the eastern base of the Rocky
Mountains, and to give to them a legal
and thorough organization.
At the same session the Legislature
will be urged to call a Constitutional Con
vention to report a Constitution for the
State of Nebraska. The Convention to
be called at such a date as will enable the
delegates to complete their labors in time
to have the new instrument submitted to
the people for their ratification before be

This course, they say, will enable Ne
braska to get into the Union at an early
day, and probably as soon as its twin sis
It is said that an agent has been sent
among the Indians in Western Nebraska
for the purpose of obtaining their consent
to permit the people to reside among
them, as also to extend the government
and laws over their present domain and
In this manner it is proposed to satisfy
all reasonable men - who prate so much
about the necessity of a State organiza
tion, and also to prevent the dismember
ment of our fair Territory.
They conjecture such a course would
give us a very respectable population to
base our hopes upon in anticipation of an
immediate State organization.
For the present they suggest what may
prove the most compromising between all
parties, including the- north, south and
west, and result in the quiet settlement of
many of our local differences in reference
to territorial affairs.

Indian Troubles In Southern Kan
sas A Battle.
We have news of serious Indian trou
bles in Southern Kansas. A trentleman
has arrived in Kansas City and reported
that the Kaws, Osasres and Camanches
had collected in Ratler and Greenwood
counties to the number of five thousand,
threatening destruction to the whites of
that region. -Subsequent reports says the
town of Lmpona had been invested by
about five hundred cf the savages. A
battle is reported to have taken place near
Eldorado, on Lower hitewater, m which
a hundred Indianc and five whites arc
said to have been killed. The greatest
consternation prevails. This hostility is
supposed to have originated from the
hanging of some Kaws, at Council Grove
some time since, by the settlers. These
are the reports thev are doubtless great
ly exagerated. St. Joseph Gazette.
Douglas Newspapers in the South.
Selma, Ala., July 13, '59.
To the Editor of the Herald: As a
subscriber and constant reader of your
paper, permit me to take the liberty of
calling attention to and correcting the
views expressed in the following extract
taken from your editorial of the 6th inst:
"In all the Southern States there are
only two Democratic papers, we believe,
that pretend to support the present posi
tion of Senator Douglas the Louisville
Democrat and the Mobile 'Register and
the editor of the Register has taken this
fcourse of late, not from his admiration of
Squatter Sovereignty," but from his
personal hostility to Mr. Buchanan. In
deed, the prevailing Southern Democratic
sentiment on this subject of Slavery in
the Territories is so intensely hostile to
any other doctrine than that of Gov.
Wise, that Mr. Buchanan in that quarter
is now frequently assailed as faithless to
Southern-rights in failing to prosecute the
war for the extermination cf Douglas and
You are mistaken when you assert that
the Mobile Register and the Louisville
Democrat are the only papers South which
support the position of Senator Douglas.
You must examine your exchanges better
and you will find that in addition to the
Register and Democrat, the Louisiana
Courier, Montgomery Confederation,
Huntsville Advocate, Mississippi Enter
prise, Tennessee Quid Nunc, Augusta
Constitutionalist, several Kentucky Dem
ocratic papers, Lynchburgh ( Ya.) Repub
lican, Richmond Examiner, Fredericks
burg News, Fincastle Democrat, War
rentou Flag, Fairmount True Virginian,
Bedford Democrat, Wheeling Argus,
Spirit of Democracy, Virginia Index,
Washington States, Alabama State Senti
nel, and several other Southern journals
support the views of the Illinois Senator
his past and present position. J. i.
Judge Douglas on the Territorial
Question In 1S59.
"But you say that we propose to prohibit
by law your emigrating to the Territories
with your property. Vv e propose no such
thing. e recognize your right in com
mon with our own, to emigrate to the
Territories with your property, and there
hold and enjoy it it in subordination to
the laws you may find in force in the
country. Those laws, in .some respects,
differ from our own, as the laws of the
various States in this LTnionvary, on some
points, from the laws in each other. Some
species cf property are excluded by law
in most of the States as well as Territo
ries, as being unwise, immoral, or con
trary to the principles of sound public po
licy. For instance, the banker is prohib
ited from emigrating to Minnesota, Ore
gon, or California with his bank. The
bank may be property by the laws of New
York, but ceases to be so when taken into
a State or Territory where banking is
prohibited by the local law. So ardent
spirits, whisky, brandy, all the intoxicat
ing drinks, are recognized and protected
as property in most of the States, if not
all of them ; but no citizen, whether from
the North or South, can take this species
of property with him, and hold, sell, or
use it at its pleasure in all the Territo
ries, because it is prohibited by the local
law in Oregon by the statutes of the
Territory, and in the Indian country by
the acts of Congress. Nor can a man go
there, and take and hold his slave, for the
same reason. These laws, and many
others involving similar principles, are
directed against no section, and impair the
rights of no State in the Union. They
are laws against the introduction, sale,
and use of specific kinds of property,
whether brought from the North or the
South, or from foreign countries."
The Future of the North-West.
Magic seems fairly rivalled in the
growth of the Ncrth-west. Few can bring
their imagination up to the reality. Vast
prairies, which but yesterday were sur
veyed by government, and offered to set
tlers at one dollar and a quarter per acre,
now present almost one unbroken field,
for section after section of waving grain,
each acre producing annually enough to
pay for many acres at the original cost.
Agricultural Societies spring up, foster
ing improvements, encouraging the im
portation of the best stock, and introduc
ing approved agricultural machinery.
It is interesting to compare the number
of Agricultural Societies in the East and
South with those of the West; and in
the list, as taken from the books of the
Secretary of the Interior, we find Illinois
leading the van. They rank as follow?; :
Illinois 88 Tennessee 19
New York . 77 Minnesota 11
Indiana 76 Nebraska 11
Pennsylvania 6S Maryland 10
Ohio 63 California S
Massachusetts 44 South Carolina S
Iowa 36 Washington 2
Missouri 34 Oregon 2
Wisconsin - 31 Kansas 1
Virginia 31 Utah 1
Other States seem not to have report
ed. Michigan, no doubt, ranks with Iowa
and Wisconsin ; but this is enough to show
that the "March of Empire Westward
holds her way." Illinois has to-day one
and a quarter millions of inhabitants, and
the next census will startle the First
Families of Virginia.

From the Gold Mines.
From the Leavenworth Ikrald of yes
terday we.clip the following very interest
ing news from the gold mines by the last
express to that city :
Yesterday morning, about 2 o'clock, one
of Jones, Russell & Co's. Express coaches
arrived in our city, bringing dates to Aug.
6th.' The coach we learn came full of
We are indebted to the polite and gen
tlemanly clerks cf the'Express Office for
The Express brought in S1.S16 25 in
gold dust. The news from the mines con
tinues very favorable, and establishes be
yond a doubt as a "fixed fact," that gold
exists in large quantities in the mountains,
and that too, over a large scope of country.
The passangers confirm all the accounts,
and state that many are making fortunes,
others are making fair wages of from five
to ten dollars per day to the hand, while
others are making nothing.
Emigrants are going to the mines, and
some few dissatisfied persons are leaving
here. The season is now getting far ad
vanced for persons to go to the mines.
But next season it is anticipated a large
emigration will go to the mines.
Messrs. Jones, Russell & Co., received
yesterday $3,726 from the Philadelphia
mint, made from actual Pike's Peak gold.
The dust was sent to that place and there
coined and returned here. This is the
first Pike's Teak gold coin and is some
thing of a curiosity, but ere long we ex
pect to see plenty of just such coin.

Gen. Estabrook being waited upon by a Committee
appeared and briefly ad dressed the Convention as
Jr. President and Gentlemen of the Convention :
Your committee have waited upon ms with tho
information that you have made me the nominee cf
this Convention. I feel that I would be more than
mortal were I able to stand before you under the
circumstances by which I find myself t urrounded
and preserve my self possession. I acknowledge the
honor with a grateful heart ; and if I can estimate
the value of this henor by the character of those
who have conferred it upon me, by tho elevated
standing of those whose names have been before the
Convention, and from the list of which mine has
been selected, or from the very flattering allusion?
to myself by the eloquent gentlemen who have ad
dressed the Convention, I feel that it is one of which
I have a right to be proud.
As I intend to visit you all ia tho coming canvass
and discuss the various issues presented, I shall not
weary you with a speech now. I will congratulate
myself, however,r.ud this Convention and the dem
ocracy should be participants that the circumstances
under which I have been nominated, are such as to
absolve me from all special obligation to any parti
cular locality. It is proper to say that in a contest
which came- off in my own county, between myself
and a neighbor, Mr. Miller, that my competitor was
made the choice cf Douglas county, and my name
having been presented by gentlemen from samo oth
er locility, I am proud to acknowledge nmelf in
debted for this honor, to the territory at large, rath
er than to any particub section.
There maybe some hesitation on the part cf my
friends from Otoe to yield a full and hearty acqui
escence in the result of this Convention. I have too
much confidence in them to believe that this will
be carried to their homes o: into the canvass. If it
is, however, so as t o result in diminishing the vote of
that county, and if lam, nevertheless, elected, I will
heap coals of fire upon their heads by meting out to
them equal and exact justice in the bestowal of offi
cial favor and patronage.
