; 1 ; . now It Works.
AVc are 'pleased to know that the at
'temjn tm the "part of a few, "more zeal
ous' than wise," of both political parties
in this county, to draw party lines, meets
with little favor among the peopile. The
masses are determined they will not at
present, be compelled to lay aside matters
of real importance, and divide thcmselres
upon "sounding brass and tinkling cym
bol," political issues. They are not pre
pared to swallow the doctrine that "the
fidelity of the members of each party
has always been an unyielding test of
character and merit often extending in
its application to social and commercial
relations J" Not only are the people irre
concilably opposed to such a movement;
but they are determined to frown down
every attempt of the agitators of cuch
schemes. We had a practical illustration
of the workings of attempts to force
people, in the precinct meeting in thi3
place on Saturday last. We need not de
tail it ; it is fresh in the minds of all who
witnessed, the proceedings.
It was suggested some time ago and
the suggestion was a good one that in
order to prevent any single locality in the
county getting an undue share of Repre
sentatives in the Legislature, that the dif
ferent sections of the county should meet,
irre?pective of party affinities, and make
each section its own selection of a candi
date. Meeting have been held in four
sections of the county and selections made.
How far those nomina tions will be observed
remains yet to be seen. If they are not
observed, the result can only be attributed
tq the facf that a few persons have at
tempted to convert the gatherings info-political
meetings. To ask a candidate be
fore a meeting of his fellows citizens,
assembled pursuant to a call irrespective
of party affiliations, such a question as,
whether he intends to vole for Estabrook
or Daily: making his position. or answer
in regard to that matter, a sine qua non in
nominating, or voting at the ballot box, is
nothing slioit of a downright insult; and
invariahlj rebounds with a two-fold force
upon the heads of those so indiscreet.
We were pleased to see candidates show
the manliness and independence to reply
. "that is a matter in which I shall act
agreeably to the dictates of my own con-
We- Don't Indulge in Sncli !
It may be expected on the part of our
friends, that we will reply to certain il
liberal, uncalled for, scurrilous, low
toned articles of a personal nature, which
recently appeared in a certain sheet. We
hare only to say that through- the tslumns
of our paper we are discussing principles
or interest in which the community at
large are interested. We never bore our
readers with our personal affairs : When
they are of sufficient importance, and
come from' a noticeable, or responsible
. source we attend to, and settle them outside
. the columns of our paper. We have too
much respect for ourself ; our paper; our
profession, and the community in which
we operate to pny serious attention to
missies hurled ty any person or persons
who skulk behind the screen of "our in
deptendent associate," or the sanctum of a
brainless abolition editor, who has hired
his paper out for such purposes.
If gentlemen desire to discuss the
Delegate Question or anything else con-

bur position, or in any way ihey may see
proper we will cheerfully take a hand.
We do not believe that either the Ter
ritorial Legislature or Congress have the
right to establish slavery ; but either, or
both, may exclude it. Republican.
In the above sentence is uttered the
most singular, inconsistent ana lanaucai
doctrine we have ever before read, or
heard of. To contend that Congress, or
the Legislature have the right to legislate
upon one side osryof any matter is too
absurd to-rhmk about ! ,
For our port, we do not believe Con
gress possess the right to legislate one
.way or the other on Territorial matters.
Ske undoubtedly possesses the jwer, upon
me principle oniy, nowever, in our opin
ion, that a man of superior physical abili
ties. possesses the power to thrash his in
ferior, physically. We venr much doubt
even the Constitutionai power of Con
gress to legislate for theJTerritories upon
the. euhjeel of slavery. , W contend that
all, control of that matter coestitaitionally
possessed by Congress, has been delegat
ed, to 'the" Territorial Legislature by the
. Organic Act. ' . .
Hon. Stephen A. Douglas."
Mr." Douglas in passing through Ohio
met with the most enthusiastic reception
at erery. point. At Cincinnati, says an
exchange of that City, his reception "was
enthusiastic bej-ond anything of the kind
wiincssed of recent years. He arrived
ID lUol lily Vil lasi udiuiuaji, at null aci
six o'clock r. m., by the Cincinnati, Ham
ilton and Dayton Railroad, and was re
ceived at the depot by four or five thous
and perscQS, antil tumultuous cheers, the
ujusic of binds and tke firing of cannon.
2o reception speech .was mad e, as. r ;me
was to le los t. He was escorted to a car
riage drawn by four horses, preceded by
two bands cf music, and taken to the
Burnet House, a number of carriages and
persons or horseback; following in proces
sion. The sidewalks and ' streets "were
thronged. As he proceeded through Fouth
and Sixth streets, cheer after cheer from
thousands welcomed the Little Giant as
he passed. He spoke to an audience of
some eighteen or twenty thousand and
was frequentlyjipplauded.". . ,
Next week we shall commence, the pub
lication of his recent article on Popular
Sovereignty. It is decidedly the strongest
paper ever produced by any statesman cf
any age. .' ,
The Nebraska City News
Does us injustice when it insinuates
that we support Mr. Daily as a "Brown
rille and Nemaha county candidate." So
far as the local interests we seek to pro
tect are concerned, Nebraska City and
Otoe county are equally, if not more in
terested than Brownville and Nemaha
county. In the event of- Mr. Daily's suc
cess cf which we have no doubt we do
not desire, no do wc expect him to be the
Representative of any special locality.
To use the New's own language we will
expect him only to "meet out equal and
exact justice." When that question was
put to Gen. Estabrook, by one of your
own townsman in your own " City, Mr.
Neus, did he answer it satisfactory ? ,
Hard up for Electionering Material.
An effort; on the part of seme who are
not pleased with our course in regard to
the Delegate, is being made to create an
impression that we arc afflicted with the
"sore head" because we were not made
the nominee of the Plattsmouth Conven
tion. We may be permitted to say that
we had many flattering solicitations to
allow our name to be used before that
Convention: Yet, in every instance, de
clined ; and the Nemaha county Delega
tion will bear us testimony that we in
structed them, positively, not to present
oar name as a candidate for Delegate or
anything else. The one vote cast for us
we presume was like all other "scattering"
Again it is said such was the friendly
feeling towards us, that inelligibility alone
prevented our receiving, by acclamation,
the nomination as candidate for Territorial
Commissioner of School. We feel grate
ful, of course, that such were the good
opinions, of so respectible a portion of
the people of Nebraska; but had that
nomination been tendered us we would
not have received it as a partizan candi
date. Gentleman must be hard up for elec
tioneering material when they are com
pelled to resort to such means.
Greatly magnifies our position upon the
Delegate question, by raising the cry of
sectionalism. We contend there is quite
a difference, ill this case, between our
supporting Mr. Daily as a local candidate
and supporting hinr as a sectional candi
date. We flatly deny supporting Daily
on sectional grounds ! If we thought he
would be a sectional Representative if
elected, we would leave no stone unturned
to defeat him. In the absence of any
political issue, and feeling that we could
better trust Mr. Daily to secure "equal
and exact justice" than Gen. Estabrook,
we chose to support him ; and we reckon
our sin now consists more in having the
manliness to openly avow, what other are
secretly carrying on.
In the distribution of favors we only
want what is due this region of country,
and we hope that Nebraska may speedily
be admitted as a State that all the benefits
needed or desired by any portion of our
Territory, in the way cf appropriations,
may be secured, and then local and sec
tional jealousies and bickerings buried so
deep that "Gabriel's trump" even may
not resurrect them. But while we remain
as -we are, each locality looking out for
itself, we must be permitted to "do as
others do." We repeat, we have no war
to wage with other localities. We are
perfectly friendly toward, and like to see
all other points prosper glorying in the
energy and enterprise they manifest. Our
quarrel is with our own people for being
behind, and manifesting a willingness to
always remain so, by having wool pulled
over their eyes continually.
Why the Discrimination?
The following paragraph we clip from
a Washington paper:
"Official notice is given that, in all
cases in which pre-emption declaration
statements, found on bona fide actual
settlements and cultivation made prior and
up to date, and filed by the settlers before
the 9th of October,- the Registers . and
Receivers are directed, where the pre
emption claimants are unable, and do not
prove up and pay for tracts at or before
that liinev without such actual settlement
and cultivation," to withdraw the tract from
the public ea-les ia Minnesota, to take
place in October and November."
The settlers of Minncsata secure this
advantage by being already admitted a
State. She has two Senators and1 a Rep
resentative in Congress! Such treatme&t
was not in reserve for Nebraska settlers.
"The Administration at Washington
are taking vigorous steps for the suppres
sion of' the African slave-trade. Thoy
have dispatched" a powerful fleet l& the
African coast a fleet consisting of one
hundred and sixteen guns, when, by the
stipulations of the treaty with England,
we arc only requircd'to have eighty guns.

REPUBLICAN TERRITORIAL CONVENTION.
The result of the Bellevue Republican
Convention, held on the 24th inst., is very
satisfactory to. the Democracy in this
region of country, inasmuch as it will be
the means of bringing up the direct politi
carksues between the two great leading
parties of the Union instead of the person
al characteristics of the respective candi
dates as in-former contests for political
promotion. . ......
So far as Mr. Daily's character as a
gentleman and his reputation as a thorough
Republican bas been spoken of by both
parlies, he stands fair and prominent
among, the people, and will be met man
fully on the great leading topics which
now so widely divide the Democratic and
It appears that the delegates to that
Convention had difficulties to encounter,
as is generally the case with all similar
bodies, before union and harmony could
be made to prevail in their deliberations.
. Report informs us that some of the dis
appointed candidates were very consider
ably soured at the result, and gate free
and untrammeled expressions of feeling
at the termination of their consultations
in reference to the manner in which they
were so unwillingly permitted to remain
at home, to console themselves as best
they could amidst their consoling friends
and family circles.
Our nominee, is in the field, where he
intends to be found battling for victory
until the list hour of the approaching
October election, in the capacity of candi
date for Delegate to Congress. It will
be satisfactorily ascertained that he is
not a novice nor a sluggard in the business
of electioneering, but Experience will
accompany him throughout the campaign,
and be his guiding star to enlighten his
pathway to promotion and honor, notwith
standing he may find Daily discourage
ments to encounter and overcome.
The Bugle says ; "The Democracy of
Nebraska arc most fortunate in their se
lection of a standard bearer for the pres
ent canvass. Gen. Estabrook, their
nominee for Delegate to Congress, is an
old, able and unwavering advocate of
Democratic principles, enjoying an un
usual share of public confidence and a
popularity co-extensive with a very wide
acquaintance, from long intercourse with
the people of the West, and the discharge
of official duties in various important posts
of public trust. His estimable character
as a man, his noble, generous disposition,
high-toned honor and gentlemanly bear
ing, no less than his political fidelity and
zeal for the common welfare, as depen
dent upon the permanent ascendency of
Democratic principles, have made him a
popular favorite wherever he has lived,
and, among a Democratic people, like
those of Nebraska, given him such a
strength as to render his election a certain
result of his nomination.
Though this is the first time, we believe,
that he has been a candidate before the
people of that Territory, he wears the
laurels of more than one victory over the
enemies of constitutional liberty. In the
year 1852 he was nominated by the
Democracy of Wisconsin, where he then
resided, as their candidate for Attorney
General, and his canvass of that State
was marked by an ability and success
never excelled by any man who ever came
before the people in that capacity. He
was triumphantly elected, and held the
responsible position of Attorney General
of Wisconsin until he was transferred to
Nebraska in the capacity of U. S. Dis
trict Attorney. Having from the first de
termined to adopt that beautiful and fer
tile Territory as his permanent home for
the future, all his interests are identified
with those of her people, and his sympa
thies warmly enlisted in behalf of what
ever is essential to the developement of
her resources and the advancement of her
prosperity. Regarding his election as
certain, we congratulate the people of
Nebraska upon securing the services of
so able a man to protect their rights and
advocate their interests in the halls of
Congress. Though mach talent and worth
of character were comprised in the list of
competitors for the nomination, probably
no other man, at the present time, could
have been selected combining more of
the elements of popularity, and certainly
none capable of exercising a more valu
able influence in Congress for the benefit
of his constituents."
He was also a very prominent and lead
ing spirit m isconsin which elevated
him to a seat in the Constitutional Con
vention of that State, in which he assisted
very materially with his energy and well
balanced judgment, and intelligence in
giving shape and character to the instru
ment which was the ground-work of
the great and important progress? and
acknowledged prosperity of that young
and thriving member of the confederacy.
. He also held many prominent official
positions in and for the district in which
he-resided. In connection with his pro
fession1 he was for several years the choice
of the people for prosecuting attorney, in
which office he has the reputation of ac
quitting himseff very honorably.
After the formation- of a State govern
ment he was chosen to represent his con
stituency in the State Legislature fcr
several terms, where he assisted verv
materially jn . establishing :&:cdef f JaVrs
for that State, which gave very general
satisfaction to the people of the State.
He came" among us with an unimpeach
able character, which he has very woithi-
ly sustained among all classes of his fel
low citizens up to the present writing;
For the "Adverti.-er.
Trip to Tahle Rock.
Leaving Brownville at half past one,
and crossing the llittle Nemaha at Mel
vin's Mills; after traveling some ten or
twelve miles over a " most beautiful and
rolling . prairie, with here and there "a
claim shanty" and small patch of breaking,
the tiring monotony of the almost bound
less prairie was broken by the beautiful
slips of , timber skirting the limpid waters
of the serpentine "Muddy Creek." Here
and there, you see the peaceful abode of
the independent squatter, surrounded with
his prolific garden and fine fields of corn.
A few miles further on, after crossing
another "divide," we passed "the little
muddy," and were soon in view of another
most delightful creek, called "Long
Branch.!' It does one good to see its
clear waters gurgling over its rocky bed,
hurrying along to loose itself in the turbid
waters of the great Missouri. ' Here, too,
we see several good houses and ttell im
proved farms, around which "there re
maineth yet very much to land to be pos
sesse.sed.": A little further on, upon
rising another beautiful "divide," you be
hold "Kirkham's Branch," skirted on
either side with fine slips of timber, and
studded with the homes of the industrious
pioneer, "pitching in" to improve his farm
and obtain his "bread by the sweat of his
face." Having ascended another "divide,"
it is now dark the route is new and the
road Jim; and being weary and in doubt
about the way, we were encouraged on a
sudden, by the light cf a distant village,
and rounding the base of a rocky bluff
we were made glad by the noise and light
of the Table Rock Mills. These, owned
by Mr. Hoadley, situated an the west bank
of the north branch of the Big Nemaha,
in the midst of a comparatively thick
settled and well improved country. The
mill seat is excellent. The mills, built
upon a rock foundation and with plenty of
water and a good fall, do quite an exten
sive business. A new Bolter and Smut
Machine are about to be put in, and all
things made ready for making good flour.
The current of the river here, with a
rocky bottom, is quite rapid. The bottom
is wide and very fertile, timber and
good building stone are plent)
Hard by the mills is the Nebraska cu
riosity. What is it? A strange and
none-such rock. 'Tis hard to describe.
As you approach it, you look and gaze
with wonder and surprise. There it
stands a fixed monument of the handi
work of Him who "commanded, and it
stood fast." As you draw near, you ex
claim how wonderful ! From top to bottom
it is about 30 feet. Although it is one, it
may be said to consist of three parts
the base middle -top, or rather body,
head and neck. Inform, it somewhat re
sembles, (viewed at a distance,) the chest,
neck and head of a man. The lower, or
main part of itr is very soft, easily cut
with a knife, and is about 14 feet in
diameter at the base, tapering to the
height of near 20 feet, in the furm of a
cone, to the neck, which is divided into
two parts,' with a hole through which a
man can easily creep. The neck, or con
necting link, is near four feet long and is
like the base very soft. The top part, or
head, is hard sand stone and widens out
somewhat in the shape of a turnip,
strangely cemented or connected to the
neck, and is of a diversified strata. It
contains many Indian hieroglyphics or cuts
of Indians on horse-back and engraven
with the knife or dart. Many whites
have undertaken to immortalize them
selves, by engraving their name3 thereon.
It, and the trees close by, were formerly
all strung round with indian beads, and
many suppose it has been an object of
worship or adoration to "the poor Indian."
Without doubt, it is the greatest curiosity
yet discovered in Nebraska. There are
others very singular close by, which clear
ly show that the whole hill side has under
gone a great convulsion.
A mile or two further up, is the beauti
ful village of Table Rock, situated in
Pawnee county, along the waters of the
Nemaha, almost surrounded with fine
groves of timber, and most splendid slopes
for building sites. The society is very
good most of the people belong to the
Methodist Church. We enjoyed, very
pleasantly, the hospitality of Rev. Mr.
Giddings, and preached in his house one
evening, with but a short notice, to a good
congregation. And, although the even
ing was wet and unfavorable, yet the
whole town turned out." This is encour-
ainnr. inere is not a dnnkincr saloon in
the place. A camp-meeting will com
mence this week in a grove hard by. The
town is improving and will no doubt,
eventually, make quite a large and busi
ness place. The new and substantial
bridge close by the mdls speaks very
favorably of. the enterprize and perse-
rerence of the inhabitants. They have
a School, Sabbath School and Library,
which prove their high appreciation of
these most important a-nd useful institu
tions A. S, B.

Daily, the Republican nominee cf Con

during the continuance of which, Mr.
Daily appeared on the stand, and in his
own happy way, addressed the crowd in
a short but eloquent speech. Mr. Joice,
of-Cincinnati, and Mr. Marsh, of this
city, made short and appropriate addresses,
after which the crowd adjourned, amid
cheers for Daily and the success of the

1st. We claim f i r cur Territory that it shall be
dedicated now and forever to freedom and free labor.
2d. That the citizens of iho United States i:ui
gratiig to this Territory bring with them their inhe
rent right to legislate lor their protection and wel
fare, subject only under the constitution to the regu
lation of Congress. Hint the people of this Terri
tory should bo allowed to elect their own ofiiiers,
and regulate their own domestic in-titutions, and
that it is tho duty of the Tentorial Lcislaturo of
.Nebraska ia the exercise of its power tv prohibit
slavery ?n this Territory.
3d. Wo claim the right of every settler to hold by
actual occupancy, 1GJ acres of government land as
enunciated in tho Homestead bill introduced by the
Republicans at the la:st Congress, and defeated by
4th. We claim the iiumediat-3 construction of a
railroad np the great valley of the Platte to tho Pa
cific, as advocated by the Republicans in th last
Congress, and defeated by the Democracy.
5th. 'Veclaim that appropriations should be made
for bridging thsXemaha, l'lattc, Loup Fork, 'iobra
rah, and other streams ia tho Territory where bridges
are lequiredj and thn.t such appropriations when
made, shall cot be wasted as otter appropriations
have been by corrupt o'hcrs, but honestly expended
for the purposes for which they may be intended.
bta. c claim taat there should Le no inTrvs
distinction between naturalized and native-born
citizens ; that both arc alike entitled to the protection
of their government, abroad end at home.
7th. Wc claim the speedy organization anj ad
mission of Xcbrai-ka as a State.
8th. We hold the administration strictly re ponsi
ble for tho open and notorious prosecution of the
African slave trade, in violation of our laws nnd an
outrage on the moral sentiment of the civilised world.
9:h. That in the com:ng campaign, we will judge
the the democratic party bv its acts rather than its
profefMous; Trofessing opposition to a system of
credit, it baa burdened the treasury with an enor
mous debt ; professing opisition to banks tho Na
tional Democracy has flooded the nation with treasury
notes and iho Territorial Democracy has burdened
and oppTssed onr people by worthless banks ; pro
fessing to favor a National Railroad to the I'acifie, it
has expended millions to establish an impracticable
Southern route, and has not even surveyed the great
central route through Nebraska ; professing to lavor
emigrtion to the Territory, it defeated in Congress
the Homestead bill, compelled the settler to p:y for
his land in a tiiuo of great commercial depression,
and has thi ow n open vast tracts of tho public lands
to the grasp of the speculator ; professing popular
sovereignty, it has refused the people the right to
elect their own officers, and hold these offices at the
disposal of a corrupt administration to reward its ad
herents for their treachery to the cause of freedom.
