Nothing Local In the Election.
Oh, no! Why all this anxiety on the
part cf Iowa for the success of Gen. Es
tabrook? Iowa papers are out strong for
the General. Iowa speakers are canvass-ing-the
Territory of Nebraska! What
does it all mean ? Simply that there has
been for several years past, and now i?, a
Rail Road enterprise on foot in which
Central . Iowa and North Platte are in
terested, and are determined to put
through. If Gen. Estabrook is elected,
good-bye any South Platte appropriations!
'Stick a pin thin!"
And yet Ve are told "nothing local in
this fight all the clean quill." Will our
people always shut their eyes to their
true interests ; or will they rouse up and
go to work? . Now is -the time the ac
cepted time; we never have had such an
opportunity, and may not have again for
many years. Throw aside your political
notions ; they don't amount to anything

Various were the notions entertained

attended the speaking expecting "fun,"
went away with a "bug in their ear !"
Mr. Pollock, although one of the humblest
of our citizens, a common day laborer,
"opened the eyes of the natives" by pre
senting facts, figures, dates, and docu

any political speaker we have heard for
many a day. He briefly, pointedly, and
in ft rery gentlemanly manner, reviewed
the speeches of Gov. Black, Gen. Esta-

"A wise fellow, is the editor of the Ad
vertiser. He denies that Daily was in
favor of negro witnesses in law in the last
legislature, and future We presume the
writer intended this word to be further
instead of future ; it is difficult however
to ascertain what he does mean. Doubt

question was not before the house.' Now
we will not, upon this point, give Mr.
Furnas the 'lie direct,' but we will say
that he lies under a mistake. The ques
tion was before the House, as any one can
see who will examine that provision in
the 'Code' which prescribes the compe
tency of witnesses, and it is further true
that Mr. Daily opposed that provision in
the code, because it excluded negroes from
testifying. Our good friend of the Ad
vertiser will fall into these little mistakes
and, unfortunately, we are compelled to
straighten him." Truthful Journal.
Where the author of the above slander
ous paragraph is known, a denial on the
part of Mr. Daily's friends is unnecessa
ry. We repeat our assertion of last week
that the question of admitting negro tes
timony was not before the House or Coun
cil at the last or any other session of the
Nebraska Legislature ; and further say
that Mr. Daily voted for the Code as it
now stands, and containing the following
clause, without once raising an objection:
"Every human being of sufficient capa
city to understand the obligation of an
oath, is a competent witness, in all cases,

It is no: our purpose to review the gen
tleman's speech ; it had some good points
in it, and had it not been for the mix
ture of religion with politics, it would
have been less sacrilegious, and a fair
naHonal stump speech. But, as it was,
judging from the expressions on both
sides, it failed to have the desired effect.
There is a strong prejudice and very
properly too in the minds of people in
all parties, against Ministers of the
Gospel, taking the stmp in political af
fairs. If God calls men to preach Christ
and him crucified, they cannot be faith
ful to that call, unless they devote their
"whole body, mind and strength, which
are His," to that one holy and sacred
cause; and to claim for any political
party Divine origin, as does Mr. Dean,
is sacrilegious, unpardonable, and cannot
fail to produce feelings of pity, scorn,
andprofounl contempt in the minds of
the masses of the people. If Mr. Dean
or any other man who claims to be "call
ed of God to proclaim to this sin ridden
world the unsearchable riches of Christ
Jesus," comes to the conclusion that the
world has stronger claims, and presents a
louder call to preach politics, they ought
by all means to abandon the former and
devote all their energies to the latter.

for Gen. Estabrook now, and the thing is
all right. While these servants, in Ne
braska, of the "higher powers," are so
very kind and disposed just now to hush
up any and every existing "skis m,"
hear how things are going on at Wash
ington. A Washington dispatch of September
"Judge Douglas is here. He denoun
ces openly, in public places, the article in
the Constitution replying to his 'Popular
Sovereignty' article in Harper's Maga
zine. Brown, of the Constitution, openly
declares Judge Black the author.
It is said that First Comptroller Gov.
Medill is to proceed to-morrow to Ohio,
to canvass the State to counteract the ef
fect of Douglas' speeches."
The fourth article of the recent paper
in the President's organ -at Washington,
in reply to Mr. Douglas' great document,
"IV. The people of a Territory, thro'
their territorial legislature, have no pow
er or jurisdiction over the subject of sla
very." The Cleveland Plaindealer, a life
long Democratic paper, in speaking of
the treatment from Mr. Buchanan and his
friends to Mr. Douglas, says :
"The Post Master at Washington re
cently decided, and very justly too, that
documents sent to his office franked by
the clerk of a member, or any other per
son than the member himself, could not
pass free. This decision he made during
the heated canvass in Illinois, and com
pelled Judge Douglas to have his docu
ments sent by express. So of Gov. Brown
of Miss., who volunteered to send out
the speeches of the Illinois Senator, while
he was temporarily in Washington, dur
ing a portion or that canvass. Uut we
learn that the reply of Attorney Gen
eral Black to Judge Douglas is being
sent from Washington by the cart load,
under the frank of that Cabinet officer.
A member of the Cabinet is required to
place upon the envelope, "Official Busi
ness." The Attorney General, there
fore, in sending off his manifestoes had
to endorse them "official business," and
that very conscientious Post Master at
Washington, permits them all to pass not
withstanding he very well knows that the
endorsement upon the package is an in
famous fraud. We like to see fair play,
but there is a very poor exhibition of it
The Buffalo Republic, another "relia
able" Democratic paper of many years
standing, speaks as follows :
"Five columns of the Washington Con
stitution or the 10th inst. are given to an
argument in opposition to the views of
Judge Douglas in Harper's Magazine on
the question of popular sovereignty. The
article is ably and carefully written, evi
dently with the intention of making a
direct issue with Senator Douglas, bear
ing particularly on the Presidential ques
tion ; in fact it sets out, bv alleging that
Mr. Douglas has been a working and
struggling candidate for the Presidency,
and that he is the leader of a political
sect and the founder of a new school.
The article goes un to review his
speech at New Orleans, and his general
ly expressed sentiments on the slavery
question. We may consider this paper
as the opening Ly the Administration of
a well considered plan cf attack on the
Senator s strong laid platform of princi
pies on which he submits his claims to the
people. Indeed, the "Constitution" in
an editorial of the same day claims that
the article is a powerful vindication of
the true Democratic doctrine.
This being the case, Senator Douglas
can only be regarded as a disorganize
and is by the argument, fully read out of
the party, as well as all who sympathize
with him in his doctrines. It looks plain
to us that the Administration intends to
make a fierce and vigorous war on him,
and that we shall see all its influences
brought in requisition to crush him out
and prevent his nomination at the Char
We regard the issue as one clearly be
tween the people and the Administration
Let the issue be met. We -are harnassed
in for the war, and come what may come.
we shall be round fighting beside the
Little Giant, first, last, and all the time."
And yet we Douglas men in Nebraska
are told, to "be quiet" "this thing is all
healed up!" Ask us to vote for Gen.
Estabrook and thus endorse the present
Administration, while it to-d;iy loldlv as
serts that we in the Territories have not
the right to control our own affairs; and is
leaving no stone unturned to cut Mr.
Douglas' throat, politically, because he
advocates the rights of the people in the
Territories ! Out upon such hypocrisy.
