. ens of this place and vicinity, on Friday
evenrnj'nexttit the old Bank Building, of
those who, desire to. aid and-encourage

'and Council Bluffs Rail Road. Let there
be a full meeting.
' MANY CITIZENS.
. avleast, that furnished the Board of Can
vassers as such, and which gave lo Gen.
Estabrook the certificate of election. We
acknowledge "licked yet and if we
may be permitted to use borrowed -ideas
. .to express our feelings feel over it as
.1 1 .1 1 1 .1
iiiuuu uie "iicKing was aKin to mat
receired by Lazarus on a certain occasion;
and further that it would not be safe for
the Angel Gabriel to alight near Ft.
Kearney -or 'Ft. Randall to announce the
' final closing up of affairs, for he would
be cheated out of ihe object of his. mis
sion, by a coup d'etat, vulgarly called
'scuUduggery" and robbed of his horn
. before he could make a single toot.
While personally, we cannot drive from
us feelings somewhat of the above style;
nuu win ever ieei mat u. jjaily is tne
legally elected Delegate from Nebraska;
and that the perpetrators and sanctionists
of the great 7?rong inflicted upon the peo
ple, have dug and fitted out, even with
coffin-and shroud, their own political
grajres,. we purpose now to be governed
by higher motives than those prompted by
personal feelings, incident to defeat. We
wish -it 'understood, too, that we have no
. censure to urge against the Canvassing
IJaard. !They have simply performed
what the law required of them "foot up
the vote and give to the person having the
highest number of votes the certificate."
We hope, however, as the Legislature is
'again practically reminded of the utter
powerlessness of the Territorial Canvas
sing Board to do justice, that something
O " - - ' X MJL j
upon illegal votes. We know we are
.here met with the argument that the
House branch of Congress; in fact all
Legislative bodies, have the power to
"settle that matter. True, but the diffi-
cutty, js .to get the. facts before, and im
. pressed upon the House as they could and
would be before the Canvassing Board
here at home. We can but think that
there is a greater surety of getting 'jus
tice, dona the parties and the people, by
having the charges of illegal voting ad
judicated by our Canvassing Board. The
lamented Gov. Cumixc, in his life time,
called the attention of the Legislative
.Assemblv tr this rnattpr rllrprtlir nffor
the election before this for Delegate. But
to the Point, viz: should the spat bp mn.
tested. .' ' ; :
What wc might do were we smarting
as the defeated candidate, we know not.
But we nou- feel, were we in Mr. Daily's
' place,' that 'for the sake of the interests
of Nebraska, we would let the matter
drop just .where it is. One great reason
.why so little has heretofore been- seeured
for Nebraska is, she has neveryet had a
Delegate so situated that he could work
the most of his time to watching and de
fending his. seat. We, for one, would
like a .uelegate who could go : to ash
ington, take his seat without molestation,
and devote all his eaergies to securing
for Nebraska government favors calculat
ed to advance and develope the general
interests and welfare of the country.
While we opposed.' Gen, Estabrook for
reasons we thought good, and f reelx ad
vanced, and which it is not proper to here
reiterate; we have that' faith in him . to
believe;' under the circumstances, especially,-he,
wi LI go to Congress and labor
"unceasingly for the common good. We
' used to think,-when a juvenile sovereign,
that if the opposition candidate or candi
dates succeeded, tne "aiiuirs or govern
ment, were a; an end !" But. we have
long since learned that, under our form of
government; let who may succeed, the
'country U safe!' We hare known Gen.
Estabrook intimately "for several years,
and although he may not be -a Clay,
Webster, Douglas,: or Johnson;'. he is
abundantly qualified to make us an excel
lent Delegate, pnd we hope he may have
a fair opportunity to serve the people of
Nebraska.--. ; :,- .. -.
Again,' we iiave no -hope, should Mr.
Daily contest the seat71hat he will suc
ceed ia' getting it, although there Is a
large( proportion of the House of.Hepre
sentatives of the. political complexion cf
himself.: A simple Delegate from a Ter
ritory, with iio rotei voice, "power, or in
fluence, is "not of siifiicient importance . t3
Enlist the.'atteDtion of members.' They
induced to take hold of the matter. Or,
at least, such has been the case hereto
fore in. all contests from Territories. The
ccntcstor may, and generally does at the
close cf the session, get allowed per diem
and mileage. But, as before said, the
sitting Delegate is only crippled in his
efforts to serve his constituency, and they
the party most interested in no wise
benefited. 1 - , '
Now ws have briefly said our say, indi
vidually; and good' hnmoredly :"cpme
down" acknowledging'bcat,'' and in' so
doing do not presume we are speaking to
suit ultras of cither side. We can't help
it; they are our honest convictions; take
them for what they are worth. We never
were an ultraist; hope never. to be. !Dur
motto is "do the best under the circum
stances;" follow the course best calculated
to confer the ''greatest good to lhq great
est number." 1 1
"True" to 'Nature."
We often wonder what are the sxrei
Iurkings. within a human breast that car;
prompt the utterance cf such uncalled-for
low-toned, vulgar, ungentlemanly, despi
cally mean language towards a cotempo
rary, merely because cf difference . of opi
nion, as that contained in a paragraph
found in an article in the chief :cf the
"only two papers in Nebraska", of . the
5th. ' Do some editors by nature so much
resemble, and by practice imitate, the1
genus Mephitis Mephitica, and, become so
charged with fetid calumny, that they must
of necessity use their most potent weapon,
and "let off" occasionally, diffusing a
stench of intolereble odor? -Or do they
call such, "knock down argument ?"
"They "the' only two papers in Ne
braska" have read Furnas of the Brown
ville Advertiser, out of ' the Democratic
party, for his independent course in the
recent Delegate election in Nebraska r
Illinois Exchange.' ' ' -
Yes, these pseudo organs of the Demo
cratic party especially the "high-cock-a-lorum"
at the capital "read us out"
every now and thenwhen we fail with
themlo "bow the neck," and obey every
wink and nod of those "clothed with a
little brief uuthority."i The "official
paper of the Territory" first read us out
because we would not support a citizen
and resident of Ohio in preference to an
actual resident of Nebraska, for Delegate
to Congress from Nebraska I Next they
both give us a reading out for agreeing
with Mr Douglas and disagreeing with
Buchanan in the iniquitous Lecoropton
matter. We understand they would both
"in their hearts" like to be Douglas men;
but their masters, whose bread and butter
and heads depend upon a religious wor
shipping at the shrine of James Buchanan,
won't allow it, and they are compelled to
"endure the lash." Recently we have
been "hoisted overboard" again for doing
what they have always been doing;
what they did at this election, too; and
for which nobody ever complained of
them, viz: urged the people of bur loca
lity to look after their interests, and our-"
self acted accordingly. 'For, which
unpardonable offense we are this time to
be kept read out of the party ! We feel
that such a disposition of us a very great
vdisputoulment," and really are not . sure
we will be able to survive the Vafilictive
dispensation." We hope the edict, may
be revoked ! We calculate to "remain
in the neighborhood", for a while yet,
gentlemen ! . '

Whereas, it is the custom on some suitable day
of each returning year, that the joplc of the States
and Territories of ths American Union, should as
semble for ths purpose of giving thankf: to Almighty
God; therefore, I, Samuel W. Elack, Goveruor of

this Territory that they observe
Thursday, tlie 24tli of November,
as a day of .thanksgiving and prayer. '

should recognize God aa the Creator and 1'rcservtr
of men. '-Jlis Providence is over all His Works."

to feel and exjres with profound praise, their sense

It is fit that nations should openly acknowledge
His Power and Providence, and give thanks to him
"for lie is good."
' An appropriate mode is the dedication of at least
one day, to Thanksgiving and Prayer. Tho propri
