;; . me Delegate Question.
.Since "our. ahniuiicerfieut last week of
a delermiriatien to advocate the particular
interest cf Southern Nebraska, as we have
always don.e; and always intend to "do,
tratrl she gets what is equitably due her;
there has been, as we prophesied, some
feeling -manifested amon g those who are
disposed to.;.copfonn totrict.. party- dis
cipline, under any and every circumstance.
We can bu( think a few over zealous
onesVvince far . more inconsistency in
The very men who hare.heretofcre almost
fallen out with us because we were not
as ultra, or zealous in the defence, or pro
tection of the interests of ourownsectien
of country, as they professed- to be, are
now down on us "very heavy1) because we
are doing just what they have always con
tended was our duty to do.
The Advertiser1' was established as
a local paper; to serve local interests ; re
ceives only a local support, and we can't
see how reasonable, . reflecting men can
expect us through its columns to pursue any
other course than one of a local nature.
We feel that to do differently would be an
exercise cf bad faith towards those upon
whom we depend for a support. We have
been studiously careful in the management
of. our paper to give-offence politically to
nVohe. " We have our political notions as
w.ell as others; and when the proper time
or occasion .preseuts itself ; when there
are tangible, practical, living issues, we
avail ourself of the invaluable right of
the freedom of suffrage with as much
zeal as; the most of our fellow citizens.
We are not, however, among that class
of men who are slaves lo party drill; and
all-their exercise of the right of
suffrage, keep arTeye upon the whip of
the political driver ; whose every thought
must be that of a political master, and
every act the echo of his decree. Under
such a regime there is no room for man
liness ; for anything but the most degrad
ing servility ! There , is no reason for
this subserviency to party drill, "at all
times and in all places." We are willing
lo admit that party discipline is right when
properly maintained, and used in the
demonstration of great, living, vital and
fundamental principles. But to attempt
to run it through all the ramifications of
society, impairs patriotism in the public
mind, and contributes' to swell the torrent
of political depravity, which in this country,
. day,andager needs rather to be checked,
than aided ty additional impetus ; it cor
rupts the hearts ; degrades the motives,
raid undermines the principles, integrity
and fidelity of office holders. . Party dis
cipline may cost too much more than
political frecdovi I . We . are not among
those who think this government one of a
party; we believe it to be a government
for the 'people oursroremmcnt. In short
fpr we find, in giving vent to cur feel
ings under the charge of a lack of good
faith in politics, we. are digressing we
nr0 nmrnr" thns who believfi that the
whole value of the right of suffrage de
pends uron its freedom. Unless there is
freedom in the use of this privilege,
secured by. the blood of our forefathers,
. the . whole process is a farce, and the
people mere puppets without choice or in
dependence ia any of their acts.
In regard to our course ; we are not
going to "fret," or allow ourself to be
worked up above "fever heat," because a
few men who are in the habit of allowing
their zeal to get the better of their judg
ment "every now and then," see fit to
pull off their hats, coats, pants and boots,
roll up their sleeves and and "go in" to
us. Some men are thus constituted and
can't help themselves. But they are most
generally men with "great, big, good

As to the Democratic and Republican
parties in Nebraska; the lines drawn upon
living issues we have not a doubt but that
they stand about as three Democrats to
What arc wc to Expect or a Dele
gate In Congress. iC A
Voters of Nebraska in exercising the
right of suffrage in regard to Delegate in
Congress should ask themselves before
voting: "What are We to expect at the
hands of a Delegate?'7 "What can he
accomplish?" and "Who can best succeed
in securing favors?" In the first place,
there is a great and vital matter fa the
Territory at large to be accomplished, viz:
the admission of Nebraska as: a State.
This the mass of the people in Nebraska
regardless cf political affinities, consider cf
importance. With admission will come
all other favors of a general nature de
sired, or needed by the Territory at large;
the grants of lands for educational, in
ternal and all other improvements and
advancements. Their .distribution thro'
out the Territory will be a matter of
Legislative action hereafter. This is what
we all want. The two candidates for
Delegate, we will concede are equal as
to instructions and personal desires in re
gard to this question. The only point
then for us to consider is which can most
successfully accomplish this matter. Two
years ago during the canvass for Delegate
we, with many others, advocated the policy
of sending a Deleirate who was in com
munion with the working power in Con
gress. Shrewd men of all parties admitted
the correctness of that policy and acted ac
cordingly. Now we advocate the same
policy, for the same reasons. The next
House of Representatives in Congress
will stand about as follows :
. Republicans. - - -Democrats
- - -.
Americans - -Opposition
With this state of affairs, which ncne
will deny, what should be our policy ?
Politically, the Delegate has no office to
perform in Washington, one way or the
other ; can accomplish, nor lose nothing.
A Territory occupies quite a different po
sition from that of a Congressional Dis
trict in the old States ; and the Dehgate
a very different one from that of a mem
ber of Congress. The Delegate goes
simply as the agent, or mouthpiece of the
Territory to ask, the daily food as it were,
for the Territory ; that upon which it sub
sists, and without which it cannot survive.
Is it not important, therefore, that the
agent should be on favorable terms with
the power of whom aid is solicited,
especially when party lines are drawn as
rieidlv as at Washington ? This is one
picture with both sides exhibited.
There is yet other matter: and in
speaking of it we do not wish to be con
sidered as desirous of probing "old sores."
We only submit the matter as it actually
exists, and ask consideration . and de
cision with an eye to equal and exact
The" City of Omaha has - thus far
been fortunate enough to get the benefit
of nearly or quite all, either directly or
indirectly, of the appropriations hereto
fore made to the Territory! 50,000
was appropriated by the general govern
ment for the purpose of erecting a capi
tol building. This ; sum was spent and
could "scarcely be seen," owing to the fact
of the building being commenced on too
magnificent scale. Failing to get further
appropriations from the general govern
ment, the City of Omaha, with her usual
liberality, but without orders from any
authority, went to work and spent 60,000
more upon the building, towards complet
ing it ; and yet it is not finished by about
310,000. The City has been endeavor
ing, and still wants to be re-imbursed and
also have the building completed. To this,
we here publicly say, we have no objec
tions, at a proper time. But we claim that
the bridging cf the Platte river and the
completion of the government road from
that point to the Kansas line, is of more im
portance to the Territory at large, even;
and an appropriation for which, should be
first secured. If we fail to secure admis
sion as a State these will be the tvyo im
portant matters for the Delegate to look
after. If we succeed in obtaining admis
sion as a State, provisions for loth these
objects 'in the "'shape of land grants will
follow. We have shown, we think, cleaily
to any unprejudiced and reflecting rr.irid,
that Mr. Daily's, position is far hotter
calculated to serve the Territory in the
all important .matter of admission as a
State, than that of. Gen. Estabboos.
Man is prone to be governed to an extent
at least,-. by, his interests, and none are
disposed to censure therefore. This being
the fact, and all prospects for success in
obtaining congressional favors being equal,
even; to which of these gentlemen now
asking our suffrage can we most reason
ably look to for favors that will "confer
the greatest good upon the greatest num
ber ?" And we ask too, in ail serious
ness, are not these matters cf which we
have spoken, of far more interest to the
people, than party issi.es, even though there
were real issues over which to battle. We
submit this matter, in all candor, as some
cf the .reasons prompting our action in
the Delegate matter, and ask a careful,
unbiased,- unprejudiced , consideration.
Let the people have the facts and act with
their eyes open, and we are at all times
content with the result; cheerfully extending-to
them,' what we claim for our
self, the right to think, speak, act and
vote for themselves.

"-" GeiC"EstI "brook delivered "an" "im
promptu" speech in this city, on Monday
Jast. The General was very mild, gentle
manly and solicitiny in his manner; giving
unmistakble evidence of a "strong desire
to represent Nebraska in Congress." The
General's announcement to speak was
made by small posters bearing date 1857
some he had printed when he was a
candidate two years ago, and which he
has preserved carefully and now come
"in good play." This certainly spoaks
well for the General's economy ; a most
important requisite to-be-sure in this age
The General, also, had with him, and
distributed a printed platform of his own
addressed "to the voters of Nebraska Ter
ritory," gotten up two years ago, and
which he says "is still his." The second
plank in the General's platform reads:
"2. I am in favor of an appropria
tion to build tbo Capitol, if removed,
and to complete it, if it remains, and
for a reimbursement of the individual
or corporate funds that have becnj or
miy be, employed in its construction'
The General dodged this plank very
handsomely by reading the first sentence,
and then hastily pronounced that matter
a "dead issue" and passed on.
The General took occasion to step a
side and give the "Advertiser" and its
editor a "side dig," by charging us with
being the. recipient of government patron
age, &.c. We have, it is true, enjoyed a
crum of Government patronage; but we
never asked it as a partisan, and if it was
beMowed as such we have never been
aware cf it. We have a distinct recol
lection, however, of having patronage
voted us by a large majority of the Ne
braska Legislature which patronage was
refused us by the Secretary, and his action
based upon the legal decision of the then
Attorney General of the Territory, Ex
perience Estabrook, who thus took grounds
adverse to the Legislature's right to legis
late even upon die paltry matter of pub
lic printing a custom in practice by our
Legislature from its organization, and in
other Legislatures from "time im
memorial," almost. As the General was
magnanimous enough tc extend to us the
credit of honesty in our position, we
"cheerfully reciprocate" but must be per
mitted to consider his decision poor "Pop
Hen. W. II. Taylor followed Gen.
Estabrook, in a strong, argumentative,
telling and able speech, which could not
fail to have salutary effect upon unpre
judiced, reflecting minds. Mr. Taylor is
more than an ordinary speaker, and in
this matter he has the "right side of the

was his maiden polical effort. It was
Dan from beginning to end: a kind of a
general "pitch in;" cutting, slashing,
and carving, right and left ; regardless of
who, how, or where he hit; nothing par
ticular in view; "fur fun," a style of
public speaking peculiar to himself ; a la

we think she can boast of no better men.
With Mr. Luce, the candidate for Li
brarian, we" have a, slight acquaintance,
which has resulted very favorable im
pressions, lie, isitt present the Private"
Secretary of Secretary Morto.t, and h.is
had charge of the Territorial Library,
which he has .arranged most admirably.
The Jftbraskian speaking cf these
gentlemen says :
"Robert CrJonpAN, Esq., the Candi
date for Territorial Auditor, has discharg
ed the duties of that office for the last
year, we believe with fidelity and honesty.
A better man for that office, Jives not in
Nebraska. He is in every respect a
thorough business man, and cne whose
capability and integrity , have never teen
called into question.
W. Y.--r Wymax," our "candidate for
Treasurer,. is perhaps more extensively
known in the Territory than'Mr. Jordan.
He has been Territorial Treasurer for
several years, and ..having : discharged
its not very arduous duties to the satisfac
tion of the people, it would be unjust, he
being an elderly gentleman with a large
family to support; to throw him overboard
now. From his experience with the Post
Office in this city, we are satisfied that no
effort can defeat him, and our only surprise
is that the opposition should have had the
timerity to nominate a man against him.
It is his inevitable destiny to be elected.
Aloxzo D. Luce,, the candidate for
Librarian, is a young man, every way
wsrthy the confidence and support of the
people.. Our Territorial Library has been
under his charge for the last eight months,
and it is to him that we - are indebted
for its present orderly arrangement."
We understand a few persons here
abouts in their zeal, have so far forgot
themselves as to threaten to xlmarlc every
man" who disagrees with them ! How
foolish ; how unreasonable ; how little of
the liberty of which we Americans boast !
all we have to say as to the application' of
such threats towards ourself, is: that's
not our style of. doing business; we have
been taught to regard the right cf speech
and action as sacred as life itself, and no
man must deny us the exercise of that
right.- But if forced to take a hand in
the game of "marking" in conformity
with the adage, "when in Rome do as the
Romans do," we'll "follow suit" or
"trump" every time !
Hereafter we are to have "Politi
cal" Dry Good Stores, Clothing Stores,
Shoe Stores, Bankers, Doctors, Saloons,
Whisky, Lawyers, Newspapers, Churches,
Preachers, Sabbath Schools. School Teach
ers, School Books, Bibles, Prayer Meet
ings, Friends, Relatives and Associates,
if the silly recommendations made upon
the streets are observed! Oh, fiddlesticks!

Correspondencc from the Capital.
Omaha, Aug. 30, 1S39.
Tuesday the- 2()th was the grand jolifl
catiori day of the Itepublicaas of Onaha,
as designated by or.ammotJi posters calling
the faithful, the halt, Iliad andx sere of
all opposing parties to meet them at the
Western Exchange Bank, to interchange
opinions and set forth the doctrines of all
those who might have sere heads from
anv and all causes whatsoever. .. ; ,,,,
In this same poster appeared the names
of vthr6e?rsons"ro'"address the meeting,
who had formerly mader professions of
democracy but proved by their own ac
knowledgment that they never were dem
ocrats in ' principle and we, know they
never, .we re in practice,' nowithstanding
their loud and earnest profession in con
nection with and in behalf of the de
mocracy. ' . ' !
Besides those : who were publicly an
nounced to speak were others who taking
umbrage at the course pursued by the ad
ministration, although sound in principle
as they had always declared, came for
ward and before an intellegent audience
eat their own assertions, and turned com
plete -and perfect- political summersets,
and then endeavored' to bull htad it into
the crowd that they were he nest politicians.
.We'glory in tbo independence of free
speech in every man, and always take
that liberty ourselves, but alwaj's look with
contempt upon these who talk one way
and act another at the sametinio.
If gentlemen '.yish to be; Republicans
who have heretofore adhered to other
parties, let them honestly "com e "out and
confess they have changed their opinions,
and not stultify themselves by saying that
they had baen partisans in practice and
by loud professions, but never did believe
the principles advocated by the party to
which they belonged.
The Chairman of the meeting was
Judge Pease, and the speakers were Mr.
Meridith, Col. Curtis, of Iowa, Gcii.

of Washington, Thomas Clark, S. Went

they pilfered from the democracy and in
which the two parties mainly agree, they

and honor to themselves.

3Ir. Douglas' Recent Paper on
Jordan, Wyman and Luce.
The office of Territorial Auditor is at
present more ir.portant to the Territory
at large than any other to be filled at the
coming election. Upon that office and
officer mainly depends the financial con
cerns of the . Territory, and, therefore,
too much care cannot be exercised in
selecting a man for that place. We are
glad to say, from a long and personal ac
quaintance with R. C. Johdan, Esq., the
present incumbent and a candidate for re
election, that he is 44just the man for the
place." He his a most excellent account
ant ; familiar with the most intricate book
keeping : of perfectly upright and moral
habits. He has had the office but a frac
tional part or a term; m which time he
has devoted a great deal of time and
labor in putting things in shape, by open
ing up a regular sett of books something
never before done. -It is highly important
we thii'k that Mr. Jordan be kept in
thefiice of Auditor.-
Mh. W'ymajt, the candidate for Treas-j
urer, was the founder of the Omaha
"Times," and has labored faithfully for
the good of the Territory. He is the
present incumbent and is well qualified
for the position coming up to the stand
ard "honest and capable.'
As we stated last week, the law re
quires both the Auditor and Treasurer to
"reside at the Capitol." These gentleman
are both residents at Omaha, and with all
due dillerciice to other of her citizens,
The public are aware that Judge Dong
las has been for some time past preparing
a detailed paper on "popular Sovereign
ty." It has made its appearance first in
Harper's Weekly, and is being copied all
over the land. It is a great State raper,
in which' the author has lost sight cf ; or
laid aside ; or rather soared above party
and entered into the defence of a great
principle, peculiar to, and inherent in the
the American heart. The St. Louis Re
publican, of the 1st, in speaking of "Doug
las' Exposition of Popular Sovreignty,"
44 Our readers are new in possession of
Mr. Douglas' views cf "Popular Sove
reignty," embodied in a statement which
has evidently been prepared with much
care. It is a full and comprehensive ex
position of the doctrine with which hii
political career for the last few years is
identified, and with which his name will
be indissolubly connected. Our readers
will agree with us in the opinion, that it
is a logical and able argument ; that it
treats the whole subject impartially, and
from a lofty point of view, . and that it
vindicates the claim set up for Mr. Doug
las, that his course as a legislator in re
ference to its subject matter has been
guided by what he believes to be a cor
rect interpretation of the Federal Con
stitution. As explanatory of ' the theory
of our form of Government, and of Ame
rican Liberty, it is a valuable contribution
to the political literature of the country.
In this particular, it ranks, for the pro
foundness, sagacity and clearness of its
views, with the best expositions of that
theory from the pens of the framers and
ablest defenders of our Constitution.
fter a paper so luminous and able as
blaming him with hundreds of results
over which he has neither care ncr con
trol. All the mishaps cither State, National,
or Territorial which have ever happened
are with them sufficient data to let loose
the dogs of war upon the Administration.
They claim that all who are not particu
larly friendly toward the course pursued
by the Administration, Douglas men in
cluded, are and should be naturally allied
to the Republican party, and are really
whining some persons into that belief.
As to the course which should be pursued
by true Douglasites there cannot be the
least doubt, inasmuch as the principles
held by parties diii'er as widely as light is
from darkness. The Republicans both by
their presses and speeches, acknowledge
the Philadelphia platform to be the guide
for their political action and government.
That platform says "it is the duty of Con
gress to exclude from the territories the
curse of negro slavery," whilst the
