We know that blowing and pufning on
. the par: of-nearly every paper on the Mis
souri Rirer, as to their respective towns
being the point from vi,ich to start for the
Geld Mines, has become so general, that
when an eastern man looks over a paper
hailing from Nebraska or Kansas, in
tvhich anything is said upon the subject,
bis only, ejaculation is "ihaVs uhal they
all say." Now, we propose to call the
attention of those contemplating going to
the mines from east of here, to a few
facts in regard to our city, and the route
from here to the mines, and then let
those going to "Pike's Perk" decide for
themselves as to what route they had bet
ter take.
Of course we do not expect those who
are any considerable distance north or
. south of us, on or near the river, and
who have only to cross over and start a
cross the plains, to come up or down the
river on purpose to start from this place.
Those however, , who come from the
States east, across the country, by their
own conveyances, or up the river, will
certainly consult their own interests by
leaving the west bank of the Missouri
rlrer at a point from which the route is
the shortest, and in every respect the most
practicable; and also where supplies can
be had on the most reasonable terms.
Now as to the route. Brownville, by
reference to a map of the country, will be
found to be situated about thirty miles
north of the line dividing Nebraska and
Kansas; then compare our location with
that of the most lucrative mines yet disco
vered, and the importance of our place as
to distance can easily be seen. The road
from here to Ft. Kearney, at which plat e
' the route from, and all others north of,
St. Joseph centre, is said, by the ' thous
ands who have traveled it last season in
returning, and who. had gone out from
other points on the Missouri River, 10 be
superior in many respects. It passes
through a portion of country more dense-
- ly settled for a much greater distance
west ; the wood and water is convenient
and inexhaustible, and tht? face of the
country high and dry in comparison with
many other routes.
".' Nemaha county being mote advanced
. in agricultural affairs than" any other
county in Nebraska; we consequently
'raise, and have for sale at cheaper rates
than can be had anywhere else, the staple
supplies needed by thore outfitting for
the mines. We venture the assertion
'that there is no other point at which corn,
meal, flour, beans, lard, butter, potatoes,
bacon, &c, can be had at more reasonable
. 'rates than in . Nemaha count)'. As to ;
"other supplies, and mining implements, i
. out business men have at least equal fa-1
. cilities with those at other points, and 1
can furnish on as reasonable terms.
Tiie facility for crossing the river at
this place is, to say the very least, unsur
passed. The banks on cither side are low,
. and easy of ascent xtnd descent ; the ri
ver is clear of bars, snags, or other impe
diments; and the steam ferry boat own
. edbythe ferry company, safe, commodi-
ous and provided with excellent machine
ry, which altogether ensures-at all times
safe and speedy crossing.
Oa either side of the river at this point
are extensive bottom lands, where grass
starts much earlier in the spring than on
the upland, and is inexhaustible. No
belter place, then, can be found to recruit
, stock before starting out. Immense num
bers cf work cattle were purchased here
from returning adventurers last stason,
which, in addition to those raised in this
vicinity, renders this a favorable point at
which to purchase stock.
Our merchants hare already supplies of
almost every kind, and by first boats' will
'have their stocks complete in every
To those who would outfit cheap ; make
ihort, quick and comfortable trips to the
Nebraska Gold "Mines, we say, leave the
Missouri River at Brownville.
There is nothing of particular interest
yet done in Congress.
. Mr. Grow, of Pennsylvania, Chairman
of the House Committse oa Territories,
has been instructed to ropcrt a Home
stead bill. We hops it will be more lib
eral than the one he introduced last ses
sion, v - . ' .
Mr. Craisr, of Mo., among a number
of bills pertaining to Western interests,
has, we see, introduced a bill to aid in
the construction of a Rail Road from the
Missouri River to San Francisco, Cali
fornia. Mr. Fstabrook, on the 16th, introduced
a bill to enable Nebraska to hold a Con
vention preliminary to admission into the
Union. We do not believe in "enabling
acts," but will not object seriously.
On the same day, Mr. Campbell, of
Penn., presented the memorial of S. G.
Daily contesting the seat of Mr. Esta
brook, Bingham, a Republican member from
Ohio, has introduced a bill declaring null
and void the acts of the New Mexico Le
gislature establishing slavery. Now we
will see Congressional ! interventionists
show their hands. Can Keitt, of South
Carolina, and Bingham, of Ohio, fuse as
to the principle involved, and divide out
per agreement as to its application? An
opportunity will be presented to carry cut
the whole programme, should the bill be
fore the Kansas Legislature to prohibit
slavery become a law; we understand,
however, it will be vetoed. There is
strength, we think, to pass it over the
Our Ticket.
A correspondent cf iho Quincy (Hi.)
Herald, writing from Nashville, Tenn.,
says that "although the Tennessee Dele
gation to the Charleston Convention is in
structed to vote for Andrew Johnson for
President, that their first choice is Steph.
A.Douglas.' All but three of the dele
gates will vote for Douglas on the second
or third ballot, and they will then make a
strong effort to get Johnson upon the
ticket for Vice-President. With Doug
las and Johnson, the Democracy will car
ry Tennessee by twenty thousand majo
rity." . .
The Herald's Washington correspon
dent gives a list of appointments by Col.
Forney, including the following Western
names: John M. Barclay, of the Indiana
Journal, clerk, at $2,160 per annum. R.
Reisrnan, of Illinois, clerk to enter peli
tions and papers in the committee rooms,
at 81,800. S. C. Boyntcn, cleric to take
charge of books voted to members,

tha.t report Nemaha county was put down
at having but 63,495 acres entered land

and injustice done our county. There

Douglas' Prospect
We are greatly rejoiced to know that
Mr. Douglas' prospect for nomination
was never brighter than . at present. It
appears to be generally conceded now by
all parties that he will be "the man." If
he be nominated upon the platform on
which he now stands; has always stood,
and says he will stand upon no other,
"Congress, a Legislature, 'nor no human
power" can prevent him being elected
the next President of the United States.
Greeley, of the N. Y. Tribune, has
been on a lecturing tour, through the
West, and writes from Davenport, under
date January 29, 1S60, from which we
extract the following. Greeley no doubt
dislikes very much to make such acknow
ledgments. We give him credit, howev
er, for his candor.
"I have been looking through and tak
ing notes in each of the States Northwest
of the Ohio, Minnesota excepted, during
the past fortnight; and, though I seldom
place predictions on record, I now make
one which I would not have credited when
I left New York. I predict that S. A.
Douglas will be nominated for President
at Charleston next April,' and that most
of the Slave States will give him their
Electoral Votes. Let these foreshadow
ing be noted and compared with the
events. .
"I predict Mr. Douglas' nomination, in
full view of the fact that a great majority
of the Southern Democratic' politicians
intensely hate him that Mayor Woud
will have to promise to oppose him in or
der to get his Hard Shell delegation ad
mitted at Charleston that there will be
an anti-Douglas delegation claiming seats
from Illinois that many of the delegates
elect even from the Northwestern States,
including a majority of th )Sft from Min
nesota, do not want "to nominate h inl
and that Bright, Rice, Joe. Lane," &c,
who have for some years labored under
the hallucination that they are the lead
p of ihe Northwestern Democracy,
would prefer defeat with a Lecomptonite
to success with Douglas. I see also that
the anti-Dour?!as side will have the ad
vantage in the Convention, first in settl
ing the contested seats; then in framing
the Platform.' But. after making allow
ance for these rr.a!;e weights, I still hold
the Little Giant's nomination to be all
but inevitable,
Mr. Douglas is still in the eyes cf the
Democratic masses in the Free States,
the champiou and embodiment of the
principle of Popular Sovereignty bv which
they were reconciled to the repudiation
of tbe Missouri Compact. That repudi
ation was never relished bv thein verse:
nor did its manifest object commend it to
their approbation. But the suggestion
that each separate community, whether
termed State or Territory, should be at
liberty to manage and dispose of, its own
negroes to. nave slavery or not have it,
as ii buuuiu eu.iii was ana popuiar
with the Western Democracy. And,
having long recognized Mr. Douglas a3
the author, expounder and champion of
that doctrine, they will net be disposed to
scrutinize very nicely the Platform if he
is placed conspicuously thereon.v With
Mr. Douglas as their candidate, the De
mocracy will contest .every Ncnhwestern
State with energy, and ostcf them with
confidence. They will not ccnsiJer or.3
one of them absolutely lost ur.'Jl its popi
lar votes for ' President shall hive ' been
cast and counted.
Through all its mutations, Mr. Doug
las has hitherto stood by the principle of
Free-Homesteads, or the grants of quarter-sections
cf the public lands to actual
settlers without charge. - That principle
always stronger in the Free West than
any party has gained immensely in
power to control votes from the pecuniary
disasters of the last three years. Ihous
and? who were crabbing all the land
within sight of their log' cabins a" few
years since, and fondly expecting to be
come speedily rich by land speculation,
have suddenly awaked to a realization ol
the fact that their land-grabbing has
ruined them, and that they have a hard
chance before them of obtaining even a
livelihood. To those, and to tens of thou
sands beside, the homestead bill seems of
more consequence than all other topics of
political controversy. No other Democ
ratic statesman than Douglas, unless it be
Andrew Johnson of Tennessee, could
hope for their support. Mr. Joe. Lane's
ugly record last winter renders him con
spicuously unavailable.. Mr, Douglas, on
this question, could probably hold his own
against a Republican ; no one else but
Johnson could begin to do it.
"That the events and dcvelopements
of the next ten weeks may change all this
I fully understand all this; but, if mat
ters move along as they are now going,
Mr. Douglas' nomination seems, hardly
avoidable And, as an evidence that a
Democrat may, for once, disobey the man
dates of the Slave Power without thereby
ruining himself, I am prepared to regard
it with complacency."

How tliey Dissolved Uie Union.
The South Carolina Legislature lately
sent out a parcel of resolutions inviting
each of the other Southern States to join
in a disunion conference. : : r .. . ,
When they reached Texas, the Legis
lature eyed them suspiciously. Members
remarked that Texas, had had to much
trouble getting into the Union to be in a
hurry to get oat of it. And they .were
summarily laid under the table. , -
When they- reached Virginia, there
was a long debate. But the Legislature
finally came to the sensible conclusion,
that a disunion conference could not dis
solve the Union, and, if it had, that was
not what they; wanted. So the resolu
tions were not concurred in. '
"When, they had reached , Marylaud,
the whole Legislature? rose upwith two
exceptions, to indignantly spurn them as
an invitation to treason, which message
goes back to South Carolina-with their

Buowsville, Frs. 20, 1660.
Mr. Editor :
I see for the last three or four num
bers of your paper, jyou have been down
on Governor Black; for vetoing the bill to
'Prohibit Sir. cry in Nebraska."
Now, sir, I would like to ask you a few
questions., if-ynir had a servant and i.e
would not obey you, would not you turn
him off? And is not Governor Black
servant under"" Jeems Buchanan; and
must not he obey Jeems' orders ? You
also find fault with. Jeems, and ycu-say
he has done wrong. -Now'don't you know
the Bible (or some "other book) says the
King ran c'o no wrong? And aim J eems
the same as Kino- over this country 1 But
von sav that Jeems said, four vearj airo
that "the people of a Territory, like those
of a State,' &cM kc. ,Well, suppose he
did say so;" don't you know there is an
old saying, "Smart' men change their
minds", fools never do;" and if Jeems
Buchanan. and Gov. Black, and the rest
of our folks have changed our minds, it
is proof positive that we are smart," and
are not like you and Douglas, and the rest
of vour folks that slick .to the same old
thing and never change. -- .
- And . don't ! you know that old J udge
Dred Scott, three years ago, (when-he
was trying.a nigger fpr some criix e he
had committed. I don't recollect what
crime it was,; though,) decided that the
Constitution carried slavery into the Ter
ritories and protected it there?" But
you say Judge Scott didn't say any 'such
thing; bull say he did; and Governor
Black'says he did ; and Jeems Buchanan
says he did : and I guess we know more
about it than y6u and Douglas does., and
all the rest of your crew.
You find fault with Governor Black be
cause in his speeches, last Fall, he
said we were all' Sovereigns, and then
veioecl a bill passed by the same sover
eigns. You ought , to ; have gumption
enough to know that he was only trying
to fool some of the Black' Republicans,
end get them to vote for Gen. Estabrook.
Now I want you to'slop abusing Gov.
Black, Judge Scott, Lee Cornpton, Jeems
Buchanan, and the rest of our folks. If
you don't ?iop, I'll write right straight to
the Governor,' and get him to come down
here and make another speech; and 1
guess she'll use you -.and Douglas both up
badly; and if he should come here and
make a speech and say, the "Moon was
made of Cheese," I reckon you and Doug
las wouldn't believe. hiin, but would stick
to it that the moori was made of something
else. But there are lots of us who would
believe him, because vve - know he is
smarter than yoa and "Douglas snd your
whole tribe thrown in. ' ' .
' And don't you" know but I'm so, mad
I can't write any more so I'll finish by
hurrahing-for. Governor ; Black, Judge
Scott, Lee Cornpton, Jeems Buchanan,
and the rest of our folks. '
' Our "pheelinks" are hurt ; our repu
tation as 'an editor damaged in fact
used up" generally by Old Buck's friend,
"Clear. Grit." We only hope Douglas
may not see and read this "able defense.'

To give our readers some idea of
slate of things in Washington, we may
mention the fact that the war between the
Administration and the unsound members
of the Democratic party is not confined to
politics. - It is carried even into social
life. Mrs. Douglas is admitted by all who
know her to be one of the most elegant
women in the District of Columbia. Mr
Buchanan has not invited her to one. cf hi:
Levees. He has also according to tht
belief of those who know-best, -directed

Distribntloa of Seeds.
The following extract from the Agri
cultural Report of the Commissioner of
Patents will explain the reason why the
distribution of various 'kinds of,.domestic
seeds, which have heretofore been sent out
from the Patent Office, is dispensed with
during the present fiscal year:
"Owing to the . re luced appropriation
made by Congress for agricultural pur
poses for tr.e fiscal year ending June 30?
1560, the officers have been compelled to
reduce its expenses and confine its action
to a more limited sphere than heretofore.
In doing this, it was found necessary
either to decline purchasing for distribu
tion the usual varieties of garden and
field seeds, or to abandon the experi
ment of propagating the t?a, and various
oiher kinds of foreign plants and grape
cuttings for which orders had been giv
en. The expenses which had already
been incurred in their procurement would
hardly justify the office in throwimr them
aside. It was accordingly deemed advi
sable to apply the remainder of the funds
solely to the procuring information, and
preparing, the material for. the Agricultu
ral Report, and to the propagation and
distribution of such varieties of foreign
seeds and cuttings as had already been
engaged. These were of such a nature,
that if thev had been distributed through
out the country immediately upon their
receipt, the probability is that very few
of them would have reached their desti
nation in a fit state for propagation.
The Tea seeds', more particularly, arriv

north of the canal. These structures now
answer well the purpose for which they
were inienaeci, as is exninnen by tne tact
that we have ready for distribution over
30,000 well rooted ; tea plants ; 12.000
foreign and domestic grape-vines ; 900
rooted seedless pomegranate cuttings, and
various foreign, medicinal, and ornamen
tal plants. These will be ready for dis
tribution during , the present winter and
the ensuing spring."
