I'tiave deposed of riiy interest in the
material of the Advatiser office to L. E.
Lyanka, Ilsq-i who will hereafter take
charge of the mechanical department, I
still retaining the position as Editor. We
form a co-partnership, for the future
transaction of business, under the name
of FenNAs Si. Lyassa. Mr. Lyanna
is a practical printer, nnd is vell
known in this community where he has
resided for the last three years. This
arranTpmpnt will enable me to devote
my lime exclusively to the editorial "and
oat-door department; thus making a more
useful paper ; extending its circulation,
ahd increasing the business of the con
cern, . We shall renew our efforts to make
the Advertiser worthy the increased sup
port, not only of the citizens of this city
and .county, but the whole Territory. We
expect of the citizens of Brownville, for
whosi particular interests we have, and
will continue unceasingly to labor, to ex
tend .to us all the patronage they possibly
can command even to make extra ef
forts. There has not been, nor will there
be a period in our progress as a city,
when a united, energetic effort, on the
i . i-.j
pan oi every resiueni, is more neeueu
and will accomplish more than now. We
see and feel such to be the fact, and shall
act accordingly, and trust every well
wisher of our growing and prosperous
young city will do the same.

it in our Omaha exchanges with as much
anxiety as any cne else could ; we hare
written to friends at the capital to procure
it for us, and the answer i?, "I endeavor

but failed!" There, now, reader, you
have all we know, or can obtain in regard
to the official rote of the Territory. It
is the invariable custom in all other States

this--to publish' the official vote, and, for
the life of us, we can't see the particular
object in making a "new regulation" in
regard to ' that matter in Nebraska, "al
though there is a precedent for such a
movement in the controling of the public

Death of Hon. Fenner Ferguson.
We learn from the last Omaha Repu
blican that Hon. Fenner Ferguson, late
Delegate in Congress from this Territory,
died at his residence in Bellevue on Fri
day the 16th inst.
"Judge Ferguson was, we believe, a
native of the State of New York. In
early life he removed to Michigan and
settled in the town of Albion, in the
practice of his profession. While a resi
dent there, he was chosen to the Legisla
ture for one term. In 1S54, upon the
passage of the Nebraska Bill, he received
from President Pierce the appointment
of Chief Justice of Nebraska, and remo
ved thither with his family in the autumn
of that year, locating at Bellevue. He
discharged the duties of Judge with abi
lity and impartiality, and to the satisfac
tion of the people of his District.
"He was the Delegate from this Ter
ritory during the last Congress, having
been chosen in August, 1S57. His seat
was contested by B. B. Chapman, but
without success, the House deciding in
favor of Judge Ferguson.
"He was a man of superior abilities,
and possessed many fine social qualities.
He-was a good citizen, and his presence
among us will long be missed. He has
been cut down in the full prime and vigor
of his life, leaving a wife and three chil
dren to mourn their irreparable bss.
May they have that consolation which
alone can bring solace and comfort to the
Congress The Next House.
The elections being all over, we are at
last, says the St. Louis Republican, able

tives. According to our reckoning the

Rail Road Meeting at BrowuTille,
Brcumrille, N. T., Nov. 18, 1S59.
Pursuant to notice, a large and enthu
siastic meeting of the citizens of Brown
rille was held at the office of C. G. Dor
soy, Esq., in Brownville, for the purpose
of making an expression in regard to the
construction of the St. Joseph and Coun
cil Bluffs Rail Road.
On motion, C. B. Smith was elected
Chairman, and JohnL. Carson Secretary.
After some time being spent in the
interchange of opinions, the following
resolution. was offered by R. W Furnas,
and unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That the President of this
meeting appoint a Committee of five,
whose duty it shall be to prepare, for the
consideration of a meeting to be held on
Tuesday next, a report showing the
amount of patronage annually bestowed
by Brownville upon the great natural
thoroughfare now extending into this
upper country, and also resolutions ex
pressive of the feelings of our citizens in
regard to the construction of the St. Jo
seph and Council Bluffs Railroad.
Messrs. R. W. Furnas, D. J. Martin,
J. McPherson, E. W. Thomas, and S.
Belden, were appointed said Committee.
Adjourned to meet on Tuesday next at
Brownville, Nov. 22.
Pursuant to adjournment, the meeting
assembled at Bank Hall this day, Mr.
Smith in the Chair, and Mr. Carson,
Mr. Furnas, from the Committee to
prepare Report and Resolutions, submit
ted the following which was unanimously
adopted, and ordered to be published in
the Nebraska, St. Joseph and Council
Bluffs papers, and a manuscript copy fur

hepout or committee.
The Committee appointed at a meeting
of the citizens of Brownville to ascertain
the encouragement in the way of patron
age our town could afford a Railroad run
ning through or near it, beg leave to sub
mit the following :
Your Committee are of the opinion
that the city of Brownville presents un
doubtedly the most advantageous point on
the Missouri river to command the trade
of the Southern counties of Nebraska.
Since the settlement of the Territory it
has been the principal business point of a
lare extent of country ; and at the
present time occupies a conspicuous posi
tion as one of the most promising towns
north of St. Joseph. Possessing a levee
unsurpassed by that of any otherplace on
the upper Missouri, and being by good
and practicable reads connected with the
fertile country WTest and South of it, -its
business is rapidly increasing, and has
evidently attracted the attention of capi
Since Kansas has ceased to occupy an
undue prominence in the mind of the
country, to the almost total exclusion of
all other portions of the West, our fertile
prairies have commanded tho considera
tion and attention they so richly deserve,
and now amply reward the labors of the
husbandman with abundant crops of every
kind of produce raised in any State of the
same latitude East of us. Already hun
dreds of fine farms are to be seen, ex
tending from the river West fifty and
sixty miles, and our surplus products are
far more than the most fervid imagina
tion, a few years since, could have anti
cipated. The great mass of this surplus
finds its way to market through Brown
ville, which now is and must continue to
be the emporium for the business of the
immense region West of it and North of
the Kansas line. Our most excellent
steam ferry boat would give us an almost
immediate connection with a Railroad
running North and South through the
Missouri and Nebraska Valley.
Being the starting point from the Mis
souri River on one of the most direct and
practicable route: to the Gold Regions,
Brownville presents advantages to the
gold seeker unsurpassed, to say the very
least, by any of our sister cities. Even
during the past year, when so many rival
routes were heralded to the public, and
every possible means used to attract tra
vel to them, Brownville, by its geogra
phical position, commanded a large por
tion of the outgoing, and still a greater
portion of the returning travel, which
was unanimous in favorable expressions
as to the Brownville route, all of which
especially that the returning, travel, dou
bles that going out lead us to reasonably
expect in the future an increased travel
from this point." Travel, like commerce,
invariably seeks the shortest and most
feasible route, and no fictitious means can
draw away from us that to which the po
sition of our city and the geography of the
country declare us entitled.
Your Committee, from the very brief
lime allowed them, must necessarily fall
short of securing figures showing the full
amount of business done at this point,
and which would be bestowed as patron
age upon a Railroad running as near our
city as contemplated by the St. Joseph
and Council Bluffs Road one and one-
quarter miles. Our report is made upon
information derived from our merchants,
Produce Dealers, Forwarding and Com
mission Merchants, Ticket and Express
Ajrcnts. We find that there has been
paid out at this pcint, the past year, for
freights imports and ' exports nearly
one hundred thousand dollars. Taking
the increase of business last year over
the one preceding as a basis, and your
Committee feel safe in putting down the
freight and passage patronage of this
point for the coming year at from one
hundred and fifty thousand to two hundred
thousand dollars, and which cunnot fail to
increase, in a like ratio, from year to year
in the future.
Your Committee would add. to this
hastily- gotten up report, the following
resolutions for the favorable consideration
of the meeting :
Resolved, That the citizens of Brown
ville and Nemaha County, rejoice at the
prospect of the speedy construction of the
St. Joseph and Council Bluffs Rail Road ;
and that they will pledge every encoura
gement in their power in the construction
of said road. .
Resolved, That the Company may.
when said road is completed, if located
upon the route we understand is now pro
posed, rely upon a paying patronage f rom
this point, and that no effort on our part
shall be lacking to secure for the road
all the travel and shipping at our com
mand. Respectfully submitted,

Mr. Daily's Protest.
To His Excellency Samuel W. Black,
Governor; the Honorable Augustus
Hall, Chief Justice; and Leavitt L.
Bowen, Esquire, District JIUorney of
the Territory of Nebraska:
The undersigned, Samuel G. Daily,
That at the late election, held in the
said Territory, he was one of the persons
voted for a Delegate to the 36th Con
gress of the United States; and, although,
as he is informed, according to the re
turns of votes cast at the said election,
transmitted to his Excellency the Gover
nor, Experience Estabrook, Esquire, the
candidate for Delegate nominated in op
position to the undersigned, appears to
have received the highest number of
votes; yet, for the reasons hereinafter
stated, the undersigned believes, and
therefore insists, that he is entitled to re
ceive the certificate of his Excellency the
Governor, as such Delegate.
Elections for Delegates in the Terri
tory, except as to the time of holding
them, are regulated exclusively by the
act entitled "Elections, approved Janu
ary 26th, 1856, p. 49 and the act am
endatory thereof, approved February 13,
1857 p. 1371.
These laws were designed to secure a
full, fair, and genuine expression of the
popular will, m the choice of public ser
vants, and, to that end, to guard against
fraud and imposition; and no votes, not
given, certified, and returned in accord
ance with these laws, can be received and
"cast up" in the final canvass.
Conceding that, under' the existing
state of the law, the final canvassers
ought not to receive evidence of fraud
perpetrated by individual voters, or of
frauds or errors committed by the judges
of election, at lawfully constituted polls
of election, it must at least appear, prima
facie, before the votes transmitted in an
"abstract" transmitted to . the Governor
can be lawfully allowed, that such votes
were, or might have been, lawfully cast
and certified. If, for example, an ab
stract of votes given in one of the coun
ties of the Territory of Kansas should be
transmitted by the clerk of such county to
the Governor of this Territory, it would,
of course, be treated by the canvassers as
altogether nugatory ; and so, an abstract
of votes cast in an unorganized county of
this Territory, though transmitted by a
person styling himself clerk of such
county, would, for yie same reason, be
equally nugatory. " The organization of a
county by the due" election of county of
ficers, is matter of law' and public notori
ety, and the final canvassers are to be
presumed to know, because they are
bound to know in order to be enabled to
perform their duty, what counties in the
Territory have been so organized, and
because they are by law forbidden to
count votes ccmingfrom any other.
But the undersigned has been informed
that, among the abstracts of votes trans
mitted to his Excellency the Governor,
there is one purporting to come from the
clerk of Buffalo county, whereby it is
made to apper that no less than 292 votes
were there cast for Mr. Estabrook, and
not one for the undersigned. Buffalo
county was" declared such by an act defin
ing its limits, approved March 14, 1S55
p. 340. But it has never been organ
ized as a county, no election for county
officers ever having been held therein ;
and it is accordingly not enumerated
among the counties in the act passed last
year p. 251, "To apportion the mem
bers of the House of Representatives."
Had the small number, of its inhabit
ants desired its organization, there is a
simple and easy process provided by a
general law of the Territory entitled
"An act in relation to new counties,"
approved March 10, 1S55, p. 222, by
which their desire might have been rra
tified at any time, but of which they have
not yet seen fit to avail themselves; their
number being, it may be presumed, in
their opinion, too inconsiderable to re
quire such organization, or to warrant the
expenses to which it would subject them.
The undersigned has, however, been
informed that, some time during the last
summer, county officers for the county of
Buffalo were appointed by his Excellency
the Governor.' If his Excellency was
not by law empowered to make these ap
pointments, they were, of course, invalid,
and no lawful election , could be held in
the county, for the want of proper per
sons to conduct it. No phces could be
designated for holding the polls; the per
sons so appointed commissioners could
not give the required notices nor appoint
the judges of election, nor could the per
sons appointed judges act as such ; the
person so appointed clerk of the county
was not authorized to receive the returns
of the judges of election, nor could he
certify the votes given, to his Excellency
the Governor. In short, 'the whole pro
ceeding must have been irregular, base
less and void.
The undersigned has faithfully search
ed the organic act and the statutes of the
Territory, in vain, for any law conferring
on the Governor of this Territory even
the semblance of such power of appoint
ment, and is therefore constrained to be
lieve tnat, in assuming this power, his
Excellency must have acted under some
illusion. The undersigned, accordingly,
insists that the abstract of votes purport
ing to be certified by the clerk of Buffalo
county, must unavoidably, be altogether
The objection already stated to the
Buffalo county abstract beiLg, in the opi
nion of the undersigned, of itself, per
fectly conclusive, it is not strictly necessa
ry for him to adduce any other. But he
deecs it proper, nevertheless, to show
that to receive and count these votes,
would be no less unjust and immoral than
it would be illegal.
Within the bounds of Buffalo county
two pretended polls of election were op
ened. At these polls fifty-four ballots
were taken or counted. The remainder
of the above mentioned 292 votes, viz:
233 votes were taken or counted at Fort
Kearney, a place notoriously not within
the limits of Buffalo county, and in a pre
tended precinct containing, in all, less
than twenty-five inhabitants having the
qualifications of voters prescribed by law.
The undersigned, preferring to restrict
himself to a simple statement of facts
and the legal deductions therefrom, re
frains from any commentary on the facts
last stated, except to say that, if your
honorable body entertain any doubt of
their truth, he stauds ready mcontestatly
to prove them by sworn and unimpeach
In conclusion, the undersigned, having
as he is informed and believes received
the highest number of the legal votes of
the people of this Territory, respectfully
demands, ia their behalf as well as in his
own, a certificate of his election as the
Territorial Delegate to the 36th Con
