: Gorcrnor Clack's Veto Message
What Is Popular Sovereignty?
Who arc (he People ? And wliat
HIsMs Ilitc iney v.lille In a Ter
- Our readers are aware that at the scs
' ion cf the Legislature just terminated, a
bilL prohibiting, slavery ia Nebraska
passed both Houses; was presented to
" Gor. Black, and by him vetoed! This
, '"was so Unexpected ; to entirely contrary
7-, to the position taken by the Governor
.-.himself as a Popular Sovereignty advo
cate ; so at variance with the professed
principles cf the Democratic party, that
. eldest everybody "irrespective cf party,"
. is "overwhelmingly astonished!" and
r .very naturally driven to enquire, what
docs this all meant
1 Ileaders of the Advertiser will bear
us witness that we have studiously here
tofore refrained from discussing through
V our columns the slavery question ; believ
ing there to be no danger, whatever that
. Nebraska would ever Le ether than a
. free State, and that the agitation of that
"vexed question" would be productive
enly cf much ill feeling and disturbance
Svithin our borders. . We do not even now
. ' propose to discuss the abstract question of
.. ..African slavery. But, as in thegreat pcli-
;lical issue of the day, in which are invclv-
eel the rights, powers, and privileges of
citizens of Territories, slave property has
been chosen, by the parties of the coun
. try, with which to exemplify a great prin
ciple, we propose to dicus3 that principle
-" involved; upon its merits; and we com
mence with Gov. Black's Veto Message,
because it strikes at the very foundation
. 'upon which rests a principle of .vital im
portance to the permanency of a free
republican form of government.
-We have cot room for the Message en
; .tir. Its principal feature,-however, is
that by the treaty with France in 1S03,
; and by which the vast territory known as
ihe Louisiana purchase was acquired it
was a part of the compact that "the inha
bitants of the ceded territory shall be iff
corporated in the United States, and ad
mitted as soon as possible according to
the p::visions of the Federal Constitution
fe the enjoyment cf all the rights, privil
eges and immunities of citizens of the
United States; and in the mean time,
they shall be protected in the free enjoy
ment cf their liberty, property, and the
Religion which they profess." The quo
tatLa is the language of the treaty itself,
and which Gov. Black adopts as a reason
why we, while in a Territorial capacity
hare no power to legislate upon the sub
ject of slavery! We have always given
the Governor credit for a far more than
ordinary amount of intelligence and sta
tesmanship; and could we now believe him
tfomg other than exhibiting the feeling
of. a schooled partizan, and personal
friendship for the President, we would
be forced to acknowledge a depreciation,
in our humble estimation.
The. point aimed at by the Governor in
- referring to'the stipulations of the treaty
of 1S03 is, that as slavery then exisied in
the ceded Territory, and the United
States agreed that the citizens thereof
should be protected in the "free enjoy
ment of their libeity, property,, and reli
gion which they profess," and as what is
nonv Nebraska was a portion of that pur-
.chase, we LaTe no right whatever to in
ferfere with Zci'crj.V. We might safely
offer three negatives to that proprosition,
viz: that if slavery exisied in the' ceded
territory a stipulation in the treaty to pro
tect it for all time to come, would apply
to a Stale as well as a 7m7oryrand con
sequently, however the people of either
might desire to get rid of slavery, the
time would never arrive when they could
help themselves. The facts in the case,
however, clinch the whole matter. At
, the lime of the treaty with France in
1S03," by which the Louisiana purchase
was acquired, slavery did net legally
exitt on a single foot of the ceded territory.
France long before that date abolished
slavery ia alL hex colonies!- We are
. aware(thol in thus asserting, we advance
a new position upoa that question, and did
we deem it necessary here to sustain our
arumert, or should it hereafter become
so, we are quite sure we are not without
. the necessary proof. Wtj.are content,
nowever," to take the generally con
ceded opinions, at least in this coun-
try, at the time cf the treaty and
fince, that slavery did exist ia a portion
of the ceded territory. While we thus
, admit, we contend that every agreement
to protect the "liberty, property, and re
ligion cf the Men "inhabitants" has
been faithfully complied with on the part
cf our country. As we have before said,
if the obligation to "protect," olc, ex
tended any farther than to the "inhabit
ants, liberty, property, and religion" ihe:i
existing, it-extended through ell time,
c! to State's formed out cf the ceded
tu;;tcry, as well as to Territories. We
find that what is known ds'thrMiesouYi
t ornpnxnfr-e was uupit-u .u.n-, j
March 6, 1620, the Sth sectioa of which
provided that slavery or involuntary ser
vitude should never exist north of a pre
scribed line, viz: 36 30. It may be,
and is bv some contended that this law
was unconstitutional. It was observed,
however, and its validity never tested be
fore the Court. Why ? Because admit
ting that slavery existed in the ceded ter
ritory referred to, the Missouri Compro
mise did not in any wise interfere with
it where it existed at the time of the
treaty, viz: south cf this prescribed line.
So much for the treaty with France, and
any consequent inhibition to legislate in
Nebraska upon the subject of slavery.
Choosing to discuss this question in a
series of short articles, that cur opinions
may meet with a more generol perusal
we close for this week. In the next num
ber we shall resume, by refering to the
condition of affairs' at. the time the Mis
souri Compromise was repealed, and the
Kansas-Nebraska Act adopted what was
proposed to be accomplished for the coun
try publish an extract fromGor. Black's
speech in 1S56. upon the rights of the
people while in a .Territorial existence,
and compare it with his position now, &c.
tion cf a State Government, thus enabling
them to enjoy all the rights and privi
leges cf American citizens, and adding
stability and character to our rising com
monwealth. Still, it is not to be conceal
ed that many in the southern portion of
the Territory are in favor of uniting their
destinies with Kansas, which is now ask
ing admission as a State into the Union ;
and no better pretext could be urged in
favor of their project, than is to found in
the passage of this bill, and in the pre
vious legislation of this Territory.
In view of these facts, we apprehend
and believe that the passage of this bill
will seriously endanger the formation cf
a State Government ; if it does not effec
tually estrange one portion of the Terri
tory from the other.
' We therefore respectfully, but earnest-
Uy 'and emphatically protest against the
passage of this Act; and ask that this,
our protest, be entered upon tee Jornais
of the Council. MILLS S. REEVES,

Black Bird Appropriation.
We- here publish the protest of - those
members of the Council who opposed the
passage of an act appropriating from the
the Territorial treasury, the sum cf one
thousand dollars for the purpose of erect
ing a bridge on a road made by Gener
al Government, and on an Indian Reser--ation
familiarly known as the "Black
Bird Creek appropriation." Next week
we will publish the minority re port of the
select Committee to whom the bill was
referred, made by ourself, and which we
will make serve as an editorial upon the
subject. ' -. '
A PROTEST, "
By the Opponents of the Bill Appropri
ating One Thousand Dollars out of
the Territorial Treasury io Erect a
Bridge across Black Bird Creel:, cn
the Omaha Jlcservaiicni
The undersigned, members cf the Coun
cil, having opposed the passage of tha
Bill making an appropriation of one thou
sand dollars to build a bridge over Black
Bird Crek in the Omaha Indian Reserve;
and havicg exhausted all the Constitu
tional and parliamentary usages in order
to defea't die passage of the bill, respect
fully ask leave to enter our protest and
submit the facts to our constituents. :
We believe that the Legislature ought
net to make any appropriations of this
character, because it is establishing a
dangerous precedent, which, if follow
ed and earned out, would soon involve
ihe Territory - in hopeless bankruptcy and
It is calculated to inaugurate a system
of intrigue and combination among tne
different portions of the Territory, which,
if not discountenanced, will, for all time
to come, deplete the Treasury of every
dollar paid into it; and 'entail a bur
densome and oppressive debt upon those
who are to come after us, or drive them
to the dangerous- alternative of repudia
tion. ' ' . . : :"
For this reason, appropriations for
works of a local character, are at all
times of doubtful expediency, but espec
ially are they so at this time, when the
Territory is already deeply in debt, and
her evidences of indebtedness rapidly
depreciating in value, in view of the ap
propriations being made by the present
But aside from all these considerations,
the passage of thi3 bill is unjust and op
pressive to ihe people of th'2 southern
portion of the Territory.
The general government has appropri
ated the sum of SS0.000 in the construc
tion of Roads and Bridges north of the
During the last session of the Legisla
ture an appropriation of $500 was made
for the purpose of repairing a bridge
built by the general government ; and
this bill provides for an appropriation cf
$1,000 out of the Territorial Treasury
to rebuild a Bridge erected by the gen
eral government, on an Indian Reserva
tion, which is by the provisions of our
Organic Law, declared to be without the
jurisdiction of the Territory.
The question naturally arises; what
have the people south of the Platte river
received as a set-on or equivalent to all
these munificent appropriations? The
larger portion of the population of the
Territory reside south of the Platte river,
and they have paid the greater portion of
the receipts in the shape of taxes into
ihe Territorial Treasury, and what, have
they received ? : The answer to this ques
tion is no less strange, than it is unprece
dented and unparalleled in history.
They have never received a single dol
lar from the general or Territorial Gov
ernment. They have received nothing.
It appears from the report of the Terri
torial Treasurer, that the counties north
of Platte' River have, from' the organi
zation of the Territory, up to the pres
ent time, paid into the Treasury the sum
of S1.635 93, and there has been by the
operation of this bill, and the Act to re
pair Elk Horn Bridges SI, -500 of that
sum appropriated for. the exclusive ben
efit of those counties; leaving a balance
cf $135 03, less the amount paid Coun
ty Treasurer for making their returns,
the amount contributed by the counties
north of Phtie River towards defraying
the Territorial expenses during the peri
od of five years.
Is it then, a matter of surprise that
the people of the southern counties feel
aggrieved, and are, many of them, dis
posed to sunder their connection with the
northern portion cf the Territory ; and
to form new associations and relations,
with the view cf securing their justrights
-Occasions arise when forbearance ceas
es to be a virtue. The people south of
the Platte River have forborn for five
years; but who can undertake to say
that they will any longer tamely submit
to wrong and oppression ? ..They have
been disposed to . forgive and forget the
past; and amicably onite with their breth-
ern of the northen counties in theforma-

Two extensive fires occurred at Leav
enworth last week, destro3ing the Me
tropolitis flouring mill, owned by Earle
Bunting, the warehouse occupied by
Hinsley, Russell & Co., wholesale gro
cers, J. C. Heraingray's banking house,
and several law offices. Loss $55,000.
The Kansas Territorial. Legislature,
after organizing, passed a joint resolu
tion adjourning from Lecompton to Law
rence, which Gor. Medary vetoed. .The
Legislature then passed the resolution
over the Governor's veto by a two-third's
vote. -A question having arisen as to the
constitutionality of the vote, the majori
ty adjourned to Lawrence, the minority
remaining at Lecompton. Both factions
claim to be the only legal body.
Messrs. Seward and Douglas' first ap
pieared in their seats in the Senaie on
the 10th inst. The Washington corres-
pondent of the Tribune states that when
Mr. Seward made his appearance in the
Senate,' he was studiously avoided by the
Democratic side, Messrs. Douglas and
Pugh only greeting him.
Mr. Green has introduced a bill into
the Senate to organize the Territory or
May, late 'Lieutenant in the United
States Army, died in the City of Wash
ington on the . 9th inst. Mr. May dis
tinguished himself at the battles cf Palo
Alto and Resaca de la Palma, the taking
of Monterey, and the siege of Vera Cruz,
and at the battle of Cerro Gordo.
.The sale of "Helper's Impending Cri
sis," has reached the number of 100,
000 copies, and the gratuitous distribu
tion of 25,000 more. It will soon reach
the circulation of half a million.
The Ohio Democratic State Conven
tion passed, strong popular-sovereignty
resolutions, and recommended the dele
gates to Charleston to vote for Stephen
A.' Douglas. . It also recommended that
the vote of the State be cast as a unit.
This gives Mr. Douglas the twenty-three
votes of the State, beyond all doubt.
This strong expression of Ohio will Lave
an immense influence upon the other
States. The delegates at large are Hon.
George E. Pugh, D. P. Rhoades, Geo.
W. McCook, and H. J. Jewett, who are
all pledged, to vote for Mr. Douglas.
These delegates are men of decided abil
ity, and will worthily represent the State
at Charlestons . - -
Advices from China state that the gov
ernment of that Empire had applied for
American mediation to avert the threat
ened hostilities with England and France.
" The Indiana Democratic State Con
vention met at Indianapolis on the 12th
inst., and instructed the Relegates to the
Charleston Convention to cast their votes
in favor of Stephen A. Douglas for Pres
ident. '.' '' ' ! .
The Times' " correspondent at Wash
ington say's:; The official report of Capt.
Heintzelman has been received by Sec
retary Floyd. It gives the details of the
battle of the 27th ult. with Cortinas.
The latter, with 600 men, was entrench
ed one mile above Rio Grande City. The
Captain attacked him wiih 10 regulars
and ISO Meir Rangers. Cortinas re
treated, and a running fire was kept up
for ten miles, when the outlaws dispersed
Cortinas, with twenty men swimming
the Rio Grande. ; All Cortinas' artillery
and supplies were captured. Cortinas
soon after appeared before Roma, a small
town higher up the river, and threatened
to burn it, and Captain . Stone's compa
ny of cavalry was sent to occupy it. Com
pany G 1st artillery is occupying Fort
Ringgold ; '. ' ; l

The President has nominated to the
Senate ex-Congressman Hughs of Indi
ana, to fill the vacancy on the bench of
the Court of claims. Among the other
confirmations to-day, are those of Mar
shall M. Smith as Consul to Constanti
nople, and Henry N. Miller as Postmas
ter at Detroit.
The mail contractors continue to throw
up their contracts, finding it impossible
to continue the service through the fail
ure of Congress to make appropriations.

One of the most terrille catastrophes
on record occurred in Lawrence, Mass..
on the afternoon of the 10th inst. The
Pembertcn Mills fell with a sudden crash
at at about 5 o'clock, while some six or
seven hundred operatives were at wcrk,
The mills are a complete wreck. A por
tion of the operatives had left for sup
per previous to the falling of the build
ing, about 600 remaining. The building
was five stories high, 200 feet long by 70
wide, with a wing on the west side 45
feet; square shaped like the letter L. It
ran 2,700 spindles ; 960 operatives were
employed.;-As near as has been ascer
