THURSDAY MORNING, HUT. 28,1359.
On Saturday last Mr. Daily the
"Jackass of Liberty" and Gen. Experi
ence Esta brook met in discussion in this
city, agreeably to appointment. The
General led oil', commencing at the "year
one" disturbing the peaceful slumbers of
all the dead issues from that antiquated
.date up to the inauguaration of "Jimmy
J3uchanan," but no faktheh. He bore
aloft the "glorious old Democratic party"
' all through that tedious journey; claiming
it as the exalted instrument by which
had been achieved all the blessings, lib
erties and advantages tbat we as an Am
erican people enjoy! We confess when
we hear such speeches and we have lis
tened to several of late, some of which
came from those whose political antece
dents are the same as ours that our
"risibilities" are operated upon, and we
are slow to believe therS was never an
"nlrl WKinr nort v" that" thnt hnnnrorl and
cherished political association never ac-
complished anything for the good of the
country ; that such spirits as Clay, Web
ster, and a host more such, never lived ;
that the impress of their genius, talent
and statesmanship is not left upon our in
stitutions ; that the historian has failed to
appropriate a page that future genera
tions might know that such men "moved,
lived and had a being !" We are far
from speaking disparagingly of the old
Democratic party." We love and honor
" it for the good it has done and it has
done much but it has not done all, and
to make exclusive claims for it, is simply
all buncombe. But we arc getting off the
The General said nothing applicable to
the day, country and age in which we
. live, or the circumstances which particu
larly surround us; orquestious of policy
in which we in Nebraska are vitally inter
ested. The people in Nebraska like
something for "home consumption." The
style therefore of the General's speech
which would have been a good one for a
Presidential campaign was, we thought
and we heard many others so express
themselves not adapted to the people
Mr. Daily, in his usual happy style,
followed the General with a withering
and scathing speech, in which he
"brayed" to some purpose. He faced the
music; talked about matters in which the
people of Nebraska are interested ; dealt
with the questions of the day; and the
people manifested their appreciation of
the speech by repeated and enthusiastic
Judge Holly, of Nebraska City, came
to . the rescue of Gen. Estabrook, and re
plied to Mr. DailjT. The General and
his friends have long since "knocked
under" to Mr. Daily's superior efforts on
the stump, and feel that to let the two
candidates fight the battle alone, an over
. whelming defeat only awaits Gen. Esta
brook. It was therefore necessary that
assistance should be rendered on th's oc
casion. Judge Holly is an able debater,
a fluent speaker, and a most excellent
man, but he don't hold the cards this deal!
He is a. life-long Democrat, but had the
. boldness and manliness on this occasion to
openly avow himself in opposition to the
present Administration; in opposition to
the unfair and partial distribution of fa
vors heretofore bestowed by general gov
ernment upon the Territory of Nebraska;
in opposition to party organizations in
Nebraska, and yet prcfered Estabrook to
Daily ! It was easily to be seen that the
Judge felt sensibly the embarrassed posi
tion circumstances have forced him to oc
cupy. Judge Holly ought to have been
the nominee of the Plattsmouth Conven
. tion, and we hope there is yet good in
store for him. It was cheering to Daily's
friends to know that the principal and as
sistant both could not floor him. He came
out as he has at every appointment thus
far victorious. .
In the evening, Judge Kinney of Ne
braska City, D. L. McGary and Col.
Nixon of this place, held forth at the
Masonic Hall. We did not hear them,
but are informed the speeches were of
the usual antiquated and eulogistic style.
The spirits of Jefferson, Monroe, and
other ancient worthies, were "rapped"
up; and the American eagle stretched
from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast, with
its "hprid hid in the thunder's home!"
Poor bird ! It must feel "soporific."
Let us hare a Fair Fight.
" We like a fair, open, manly fight;
there is always something noble about
such a contest. But this biting, gouging,
guerilla mode of warfare has nothing
".about it to be admired by an intelligent,
high-toned class of people. Our readers
know we have announced ourself as not
supporting Mr. Daily on political grounds,
and yet, when we see an attempt to mis
represent him, we shall take occasion to
It is asserted that Mr. Daily, while a

in favor of allowing negroes to testify !
'.This is a -"base fabrication." He did
not so vote ; had no opportunity to do so ;
did not offer such an amendment to the
cod? ; did not ejun his mouth in the
House upon that subject: The qv est ion
va$ not liforc the House! He did, how-
ever, wui lijuy uii.vi- iwivimu
or had not heard read the code, demand
that it should be, like all other bills, read
in the House before being put upon its
passage. Xese statements we make and
defy their" contradiciion. We do no:
make the denial because we think the
fact of so voting or acting with proper
restrictions, of course a crime alarming
ly heinous; tut to show to what an ex
tent the opponents of Mr. Daily are go
ing; resorting to downright falsehoods;
circulating reports without any CXmdation
This "rip-roaring" about "nigger tes
timony" is all "poppy," and only exhibits
an unpardonable degree of ignorance on
the part of those who are continually
"harping" about it. There is scarce a
suave state even, in the Union, where ne-"
groes are not allowed to testify; they
testify across the river here in Missouri.
No sane man of course contends that the
testimony of a llubber-lipped, thick
skulled, long-heeled, woolty-headtd Ethi
opian should be placed in the scales, en
titled to equal weight with that of a white
man! When negro testimony is taken, it
is simply taken for what it is worth, and
nothing more. A horse's or dog's testi
mony is good as far as it goes, and
there are actually" instances on record
where the instinct of both Las been rec
eived as convincing testimony. But we'll
not pursue this question, for we inherently
hate a nigger, and don't like to talk or
write about them.
Again, the friends of the Administra
tion charge Mr. Daily with being in favor
of "Congressional interference." While
we knew the Republican platform of Ne
braska contains that odious doctrine, we
are free to say Mr. Daily individually has
always, at least since our acquaintance with
him, been in favor of "Popular Sover
eignty" Douglas Popular Sovereignty.
He recognizes the poiccr of Congress over
the Territories. The simple question of
power is one in regard to which there is
but little if any difference of opinion
among men of all parties. The great
question before the American people is
the policy or jus tice in Congress exercising
that power. Mr. Daily is epposed to the
exercise of Congressional power, and in
favor of the people of the Territories
regulating all their domestic affairs in
their own way.
We think this latter charge comes witl
a peculiarly bad grace from Administra.

humor because the non-intervention doc
trine was made a plank in the Platts

Another Fabrication A Base Lie I
Up North of the Platte the opponents
of Mr. Daily many of whom were loud
in praising him last winter, because of
his opposition to South Platte annexation
are now busily circulating reports that he
favored that movement and voted for it in
the South Platte Convention in this city,
on the 5th of January ! Men must cer
tainly have lost all hopes of success in an
honorable race, when they resort to such
base falsehoods with which to bolster up
their rapidly decreasing prospects. Now
the facts in relation to Mr. Daily's course
on the South Platte annexation scheme,
are briefly as follows, and no gentleman,
even Mr. Daily's bitterest opponent or
enemy, dare say to the contrary.
Mr. Daily, as is well known in this
section of the country, was, from first to
last, very bitterly opposed to South Platte
Nebraska annexation to Kansas made
a number of speeches against the move
ment, and wrote a letter which was pub
lished in the Advertiser of December 23d,
1S-5S. The South Platte Convention,
which assembled in this city on the 5th
of January, was called for the purpose of
ascertaining the views or wishes of the
people South of Platte in regard to the
annexation proposition ; it was participat
ed in by men both for and against the
measure. Mr. Daily was present as a
Delegate from Nemaha County, and
made before that Convention, what was
admitted by even the warmest friends of
annexation, the strongest speech against
annexation, made by any one during the
agitation of that measure.
The Delegates from Nemaha were, by
the meeting at which they were appoint
ed, instructed to vote for annexation.
Mr. Daily, like a man of honor and prin
ciple, showed his willingness to comply
with the expressed wishes of his consti
tuency, and under the instructions voted
for annexation, but even then did so un
der protest ; and after the vote was
taken, was again called out, and again
spoke in strong terms in opposition to an
nexation. These, we repeat, are the facts; and if
Mr. Estabrook's friends have no other
hope of success than by basely misrepre
senting Mr. Daily, they surely conclude
their case a desperate one. The voters
of Nebraska are too well posted ; too in
telligent ; too honorable and high-minded
to be imposed upon in that kind of style.
Until quite recently we have felt
somewhat indifferent as to the result of
the Delegate contest, as is well known.
But we frankly confess when we see such
means used to defeat a candidate as are
being brought into requisition to defeat
Daily, we feel like "pitching in." We
hate a tneern act, let it corse from where
it iiny. It is gratifying however, to Mr.
Daily's friends, to 'know that the course
hio enemies pursue towards him is mak
ing many friends for Liui.
"Since'wriung the above we have rec
eived the Omaha Nebraskian of the 24th,
which contains near a column of editorial
charging Mr. Daily with being present at
the Brownville Convention, and in . favor
of, and voting for, and sustaining the
annexation movement. The same paper
contains a letter from Gen. Estabrook ad
dressed to Capt: Mackey, a prominent
member of the Annexation Convention in
this city, enquiring as to the truth of the
charge against Mr. Daily. Capt. Mackey
replies by saying : "I have the honor to
state that Hon. S. G. Daily was a mem
ber of that Convention, and that he sus
tained its measures by his vote;" and,
speaking further, this Capt. Mackey
says: "Its measures were all adopted
unanimously, and the vote of Nemaha
County was cast in favor of annexation

however, is nothing new for. that man ;
he is in the habit of so doing.

next week, we will copy the Ncbraskiah's

ing to all the facts as to Mr. Daily's con
nection with the South Platte Convention

'The Jack Ass of Liberty."
. A correspondent of the Omaha Repub
lican calls Gen. Thayer the "War Horse
of Freedom," and the Ntbraskian desig
nates Mr. Daily as the "Jack Ass of Li
berty." Well, so be it. The Whigs,
once upon a time it will be recollected,
when "Log Cabin" and "Hard Cider"
were derisively used against them, popu
larized those "ancient and honorable, in
stitutions, and used them as implements
of warfare with which they effectually
slew their enemy. Cuvier says of the
family A sinus, of the genus Equus in
other words the ass "is characterized for
its patience, sobriety, hardy constitution,
endurance and the service which it ren
ders the poor !" The Jack Ass is further
characterized by his "long head, ears,
and loud bray." Daily has shown him
self to be "long-headed" surely; an ear
sufficiently capacious to catch all that the
numerous opponents, "howling upon his
track," may say of, or about him ; and a
bray of sufficient calibre to most effectu
ally cope with their combined efforts
against him. lie has ever been a "friend
to the poor," and his powers of "endur
ance," and "hardy constitution," have
successfully "laid upon the shelf" his op
ponent Gen. Estabrook, who early in the
canvass cried out "help or I sink."
A Xcw Candidate for Delegate-
We learn that M. IV. Stowell, of
Peru, in this county, is out as a candidate
for Delegate to Congress. By what in
fluences he was brought out, or what is his
hobby, we are unable to say. This we
know, however, that in consequence of a
personal difficulty between Mr. Stowell
and Mr. Daily, the former is very bitterly
opposed to the latter. So far as our ac
quaintance extends with Mr. Stowell, we
have found him to be an excellent kind
of man in every respect ; perhaps, going
to extremes in his prejudices. He cer
tainly has no Congressional aspirations,
and all he desires, or can expect, is to
take a few votes away from Daily. He
may, in the precinct in this county in
which he and Mr. Daily both reside, get
some half dozen votes; no more. Many
of his fellow citizens among whom are
Mr. Daily's friends would willingly vote
for him for almost any reasonoble position
he might ask, but could not be induced to
vote for him now, knowing the object he
has in running.
Mr. Stowell we understand is North of
the Platte, running as a Temperance can
didate. We know Mr, S. to be a consis
tent, devoted friend of temperance, and
hope he may be kindly treated 'up north;'
see the folly of his course before the elec
tion, and come home and vote for his
neighbor Mr. Daily.
We have the most cheering reports of
Mr. Daily's prospects, frcm almost every
portion of the Territory. He makes
friends wherever he goes and is just as
certain to get a majority cf the votes in
Nebraska as that the election will take
What Would He think or It?
"The groat point made ty Senator
Douglas in his memorable canvass cf Illi
nois last fallwas that he was supporting
the regular nominees, duly made in Dem
ocratic Convention. This was the strong
point made by the honorable Senator to
those, who, exhibiting more zeal than dis
cretion, attempted to read" him out of the
party. He showed his party fealty by
yielding a loyal and earnest support to
the decisions of his Democratic brethren
of his own Stated The Brownville Ad
vertiser has not unfrequently spoken in
the most complimentary terms of Senator
Douglas. Indeed in its last issue, allud
ing to that Senator's recent paper on
Popular Sovereignty, the Advertiser says:
"It is decidedly the strongest paper ever
produced by any statesman in any age."
What would that honorable Senator think
if he knew that the Brownville Advertiser
was doing its utmost to -defeat his friend,
the regular nominee of the united and
entire Democracy of Nebraska ? What
would the Little Giant say? .
Mr. Douglas, as is well known, ranks
among the ablest champions of Popular
Sovereignty. The Brownville Advertiser
has hitherto possessed great regard for
that principle, and indeed so has the
People's Press of this city. What would
the Little Giant think that a hitherto pro
fessed friend, through an influential jour
nal, was attempting to throttle his "great
principle," when first it came before the
people of Nebraska for adoption or re
jection ? What would he think if he knew
that it was compelkd to yield to a bitter
and intensified localism and sectionalism ?
It is not our purpose to denounce the
Advertiser for the course it takes. It has
a hard enough road to travel in all con
science. We will not scatter thorns in
its path. We only throw out these re
flections for its calmer, better moments,
when that journal is entirely untrammelled
and uninfluenced by any 'considerations'
of whatever kind." Neb. Cty News.
Did the "head and front" of the Demo
cratic part)7 President Buchanan, and
those who obeyed his "wink and nod"
sustain that great man, Mr. Douglas, in
his 'strong point V Did they not like
'blood hounds' 'howl upon the track' of
Senator Douglas endeavouring to 'throttle
his principle' and him too? Were not
the very men in Nebraska, who sanctioned
every throttling effort of Mr. Douglas'
bitterest enemies Administration Dem
ocrats now the main supporters of Gen.
Estabrook? Has not every effort to ex
emplify 'Mr. Douglas great principle'
in Nebraska been throttled by these very-
men, who, to-day, are denouncing the
course of the Brownville Advertiser1.
Are not the powers, we are urged to
curry favors with, by electing Gen. Esta
brook, now to-day denouncing 'Mr.
Douglas' recent paper on Popular Sove
reignty !' Let us have 'the papers.'
The Washington Constitution the Ad
ministration organ no longer ago than
the 27th ult., denounces Mr. Douglas'
'late paper' in the bitterest terms.
Mr. Buchanan's State organ, the Pcnn
sylvanian, speaks thus:
"It seems that the Illinois Senator has
published a lengthy article, false in its
history and vicious in its intentions, on
the territorial question, in the intensest
of all Black Republican Periodicals, Har
per's Monthly Magazine. This periodi
cal is rabidly anti-Democratic, so much
so that it is not to be presumed than an
Essay of a truly Democratic character
would be permitted to find a place in its
columns. Judge Douglas has, therefore,
chosen a ft organ for the promulgation
of his heretical opinions.
"There is not in the whole land a mere
busy, fussy, intriguing, anxious seeker af
ter the Presidential office than Judge
Douglas. His game is a disgusting one,
and the country is becoming tired of the
pertinacious and shameless solicitations of
himself and the class of mercenary men
who follow his fortunes like a Swiss guard
for pay, present and prospective. It can
not be but that the people will turn their
backs indignantly, and with a sense of
loathing on the entire pack."
The Louisville Courier another journal
that "shows his party fealty by yielding a
loyal support to the decisions of his Dem
ocratic brethren," in refering to the arti
cle the Brownville Advertiser was pleased
to style as "decidedly the strongest paper
ever produced by any statesman," says:
"Squatter Sovereignty will hereafter
usurp the place of love-sick stories and
If, however, if squatter sovereignty is
all that the South has gained by the Nebraska-Kansas
act, then we have been
greatly deceived, and our people have
been most shamefully treated. Is it pos
sible that for the establishment of this
silly dogma the statesmen of the South
have labored month after month and year
after year ?
If we concede squatter sovereignty in
a Territory, we have enacted, beyond all
cavil or dispute, a most effectual abo
lition measure." .
We had really hoped to escape being
compelled to refer to the "skism" exist
ing between Administration and Douglas
Democrats. Our "voice has been for
peace;" but we are unwilling to remain
silent, while the opposition preach "peace!
peace ! !" and practice, war !
We hope our charitable and good na
tured friend of the News, who is disposed
"not to scatter thorns" in our path, will
not let the "Little Giant" know that the
Brownville Advertiser is "attempting to
throttle his great principle!" . A knowl
edge cf the fact might influence him to
abandon its advocacy.
We commence to-day the publication
of Senator Douglas' great paper,' Its
length prevents us givibg our readers the
whole of it in one paper. "We speak for

Territorial Asrlcultnral Fair.
Last week we attended the First Ter
ritorial Agricultural and Mechanical Fair
at Nebraska. The result of this, not only
the first Nebraska Territorial Fair, but
the first Territorial Fair ever held in the
United States, was most gratifying. It
was a perfect success, when we take every
thin into consideration. The tiVes are
hard and many at a distance felt that they
could not incur the expense of attending.
The regular Steamboat Packets were all
out of order one sunk, and the other
fast on a sand bar and going to and fro
in that way cut off; we are in the midst
of election excitement, and everybody
thinking and talking politics. Taking
everything into consideration, we repeat,
the result was all the most sanguine friends
of the enterprise could expect.
We met many in attendance from the
counties of Richardson, Nemaha, Otoe,
Cass, Johnson, Sarpy, Douglas and Wash
ington. There were others no doubt from
other counties. We were glad to meet
so many representatives of the press, viz
RoBEnTSOJf-of the Ntbraskian, Webster
of the Repullican, Irish of the Press
Reynolds of the News and Giles of the
The exhibition of Stock, Farm Pro
ducts, Mechanism, Works of Art, &,c.
were creditable indeed. Of course there
was not that variety to be found in the
county or State Fair in the States. Wha
there was, however, was unsurpassed any
where. The attendance on the last two
days especially, was large, embracing the
Politician, Farmer, Mechanic, Artizan
Professional men of every variety al
classes were there, from the Chief Exec
utive to the humblest citizen ; all enjoyed
themselves and felt that it was 'good to
be here.' .
The address, by Secretary Morton
was excellent and appropriate, and was
listened to attentively by hundreds of his
fellow citizens. It, together with the
Premium List will be published in due
The Ntbraskian complains that since
we have announced our intention to sup
port Daily, the Advertiser has not been
received in exchange at that office, and
wishes to known if we are so ashamed o
our course that we no longer exchange
with our old friends !
No, Rob, we are not in the leas
ashamed of our course in this Delegate
matter: no sir. We believe we are right;
and further, believe that a very large
majority of the people in this Territory
will agre e with us in our position.
As to your not receiving the Advertiser
in exchange ; we know not how how that
happens , it is sent you regularly. We
have on two occasions since the opening
of the campaign, because of the demand
for our paper, been compelled to cut oft
cur exchanges oit of the Territory. We
never fail to surply our Territorial ex
changes however. "We hope Robertson
you may receive the Advertiser regularly
hereafter, and that it may have an influ
ence upon you for good.
We understand the friends of Esta
brook have become so much alarmed that
they are importing speakers from Iowa
If they will be content with speakers
and not import voters, there will be no
very loud complaining. But, querry !
Don't it look as though the chances of
success are thought to be slim? It is said
one of these imported speakers will visit
this region. We know Iowa feels a great
interest in the success of Gen. Estabrook
Cause why ? The Rail Road interests of
Iowa and NORTHERN Nebraska are
identical. Nothing local in this election ! !
No, no; nothing of the kind. Some
people's eyes will be opened one of these
days when iVs too late.
How About It !
We see the candidates for the Leis
Iature this year in this county are dis
posed to 'slip out' of 'addressing the
people.' We hope they will not fail to let
their 'fellow citizens' know how they stand
on the Hartford Convention, the Alien
and Sedition Law, United States Bank
and all such 'living' questions in which the
people of Nebraska are interested ! You
should say nothing about whether you are
in favor of, or against the passage of an
act authorizing the convening cf a Con
stitutional Convention in Nebraska, and
other matters in which Nebraskians are
not interested !
A Good Count) for Votes.
We hear it intimated that Gen. Esta
brook will get four hundred majority in
Hall county west some 200 miles and
the Lord only knows how many in L'Eau
qui court Ft. Randall ! ! Come, gentle
men, lake part ot that back. You will
undoubtedly need that many votes from
such outside places ; but hadn't you better
distribute a little more? We'll bet two
or three dollars and a half that there are
not two hundred votes in both those
counties all told. "Go slow."
Break Him Down.
The opponents of Mr. Daily finding
that he is, on the stump, slaying General
Estabrook,""and making for himself hosts
of friends wherever he goes, are new in
for a new game, and say "Lit us break
Daily down sow him vp !" Well may
be thai game will win ; but whorever it
has been tried thus far, Daily gctj the
benefit of the operation !
Bally Crniahs for Estabrook
We gather from our exchanges the
following items in regard to the Con
gressional Canvass, iii the Northern por
tion of the Territory.
A letter from Ft. Calhoun, of Sept. 7th,
"Our gallant leader S. G. Daily has
this afternoon achieved a glorious victory
over Gen. Estabrook, commander-in-chief
of the Democratic forces in this Terri
tory. The meeting was composed of a
large and respectable gathering of the
citizens of this county, who met by the
appointment of Mr. Daily, to which Mr.
Estabrook was invited with the privilege
of replying. The General, like many
other generals before him, evidently under
estimated the strength of his antagonist,
but before Mr. Daily had closed his open
ing remarks, it was evident to all, the i
Gen. regretted having heard of this ap
pointment; and he certainly is not a pru
dent Gen. if he does not keep out of the
ranc of his antagonist's batteries during
the remainder of the campaign.
Mr. Daily has, in this debate, sustain
ed himself nobly. His admirable tact in
debate, and inexhaustible knowledge of
the politics of our country, and especially
of the delinquencies cf the democratic
party, enables him to pour broadsides into
his antagonist with telling etiect.
Tekama, Sept. 9th. "A discussion
took place here this afternoon between
Gen, Estabrook and Mr. Daily. Nearly
every voter in the precinct was present
The Daily men are firm and hopeful."
Florence, Sept. 9ih. "The school
house in DeScto was well filled yesterday
p. 5i., to listen to the discussion between
Mr. Daily and Gen. Estabrook. The
Gen. had the first half hour in which he
made sundry stale charges of abolitionism
against the Republican any. He then
proceeded to show a clean democratic re
cord from the time cf Washington ad
ministration to that of Buchanan's. He
touched carefully upon Pierce and old
Buck, they being so immaculate as to need
none of his praise. The Gen. did well
in dividing the live issues those in which
the country and the world are interested,
from those in which the democratic party
are interested. The Gen. closed without
the least manifestation of enthusiasm by
the audience, and Mr. Daily then pro
ceeded in strong and forcible language to
exhibit the modern democratic party in
contrast with the one of former days, and
as he portrayed the corruption, the elec
tion frauds, the sale of the party body
and soul to the slave power, the audience
could no longet keep quite, but give their
approval in repeated cheers and so thro'
the whole discussion the people of DeSoto
gave unmistakable evidence that they are
for freedom. The charges of abolition
ism and sectionalism made against Mr.
Daily fell harmless ; and the more people
become acquainted with him the more
they feel that he is a power; and
the general's affinities with the President
and cabinet will not save him from defeat
in October as he is Daily becoming better
assured.- The people north and south cf
the Platte will not swallow modern de
