SAMUEL G. DAILY,
-OF NEMAHA COUNTY.
. t The Conventions.
' ' Sirrce oar last issue the Democratic aid
Republican Count' Conventions met, and
' nominated candidates for the Legislature
. and one or two county officers. The pro
. teedtnsof feachwill te found in to-day'a
. paper. The men' whose names are pre
..rfcn!cdtarcr all 'good citizens and "neigh':
bors, but disagreeing upon political mat-
"'le'rs.' We consider there is but one "qiies
'. tioa of .importance' presents itself, and
"under present circumstances it is more
important than it may at first appear to
many who hare, perhaps, only viewed it
in apolitical point of view. We refer to
'the settlement of the everlasting negro
question. We believe it to be very im
portant to the real interest of Nebraska
.:ihat this matter be settled by an expres
eion from our Legislature, even '.should
that expression, be decided adversely by
a higher tribunal, AsicJe from the po
litical riews we 'with many others enter
tain in regard to this matter, we know
from personal observation, that there are
.thousands in the States who are looking
. .-to Nebraska for their future homes, but
who are in the dark and wish light.
.''"The past spring we made a flying trip
' through, portions of 'the States of Mis-.eori,-
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia
. and Maryland, and we made it our special
'business to talk of Nebraska whenever
nd wherever an opportunity, presented
'itself, and w-'ere surprised at being met,
:nine times out of ten, with this objection
'to emigrating to our Territory at present.
"Well," said our eastern friends, "when
'yoa definitely and permanently settle the
slavery question in your Territory then
we will think' more about going there. i
We are not desirous of being participants
in a second edition of Kansas trouble."
Why, ve replied, nobody in Nebraska
Ythinks seriously, otherwise than that Ter
ritory will be a free State ; there are
not a dozen slaves, in the whole Territory.
'Yes," said they, "but what is to hinder
many. more, from coming? - You have
passed no prohibitory law ; true your Leg
islature passed a law, but it .was vetoed
by your Governor, 'which is evidence to
. 'us that there are two sides to the question
.out there, and not all so one sided ai.you
represent." :Now, we confess we were
perfectly surprised to be met with such
"objections," and .we acknowledge, there' is
force in them. . . When we talk about
what the fvture Slate shall-be, we nearly
all agree. In the name of common sense
'why not say now what we are as a Terri
tory, as .well as what we intend to be when
we become a State. We contend it is not
only our right so'to speak out : but our
duty. ' "" ' , '
'f And again : 'as there is a diversity of
.opinion as . to the Constitutioaality of a
prohibitory act, how, we enquire, is that
matter to be decided unless it be acted
'upon,' and then, if any are desirous of
testing, an appeal be taken to the proper
V We entertain no doubts whatever as to
the sentiments of the people now, or fears
as to what will .be their action in the
.future;. yet we are in favor of an expres
sion new, "to be seen and read by all
"men." -Therefore, we are free to say,
"our vote and whatever influence we may
J possess,' will be given to such candidates
. .for the Legislature, only, who we know
rare in favor of and will vote for a prohibi
: tory bill. Further than this we will not
'trouble ourself in the approaching county
,-. We. will in our next issue show con
clusively, by the publication of undenia
ble documents, that it is the object of the
Buchanan-Breckinridge Democracy to
.throw open all the Territories of the
-United Slates for the introduction of
. -slavery, and to re-open the African slave
jt'rade. ' And ' further, that the so-called
Democracy in this Territory, as at present
organized and controlled, sympathise with
,nd indirectly sustains and supports that
'policy. We .vant those who are honest
; Douglas Dsfrapcaats to see where, they are
.drifting, by acting with and sustaining
the organization that presents the' name
of .J. Sterling Morton as a candidate for
fDelegte to Congress. '
: - EuSiilo County Frauds-
.The Nebraska City wVeirs says we back
1 down from charges of frauds' in Buffalo
Cocrr.ty, last year, We have done no such
rthing. ; We said we jnade no charges pri-
vately cr publicly against any individual.
" We have however said, and we yet
"say there is no doubt about there being
frauds 'committed in that, county in favor
of-General Eat tabrook and against Mr.
- Daily. The fact of two or three hundred
' votes in one precinct all .being cast for
any one man, ought of itself to convince
acy.sane man that frauds had been com
.milted.-.The evidence before the com
."taittce ia Congress was so-conclusive that
"tven Southern Democrats rejorted in fa
: rcr cf .Mr.: Daily, and voted for him; in
i fact,' there was net a single rote given, in
favor of General Estabrook retaining his
seat! That looked very much like mem
bers of all parties were iatisfied frauds
had been committed.
Fur the Leuefct of our readers we
publish the testimony of Cn as. II. Comlv
who was at Ft. Kearney in Buffalo coun
ty on the day of election. Mr. Comly
is well known to many citizen? cf this
county. He is a sun cf Mr. Comly of
the Journal, Dayton, Ohio.

give farther testimony furnished the com
mittee. We presume thi3 i3 sufficient to
satisfy almost anybody, "open for convic

voted once afterwards. . Each tlmo thiy chogd
their attire, but vcre poorly diguiaed. I fiirthtr
noticed quito number of emigrants coming from
and goin to Pike's Peak, vote; and among then were
James Low, Siq.Len L. Inslee, and William Ilar
Lin, all of wlio:n voted for Experience fcatabrook,
and all were illegal votcr; they wero returning m
comvany with me from lake's l'eak. I also saw a
nuiube. of others voto for Experience LsUbrook
ww,m I know had left Denver City, Kansas Territo
ry, but a short time before I did. Ever emigrant
that was passing or stopping thero that- day was
iirl ta vote, and tho most of them did so. The
regular order of voting was firtto viait the trading
post known as "Jack's Kanche," take & drink of
liquor and a ticket, then go across the road and
vote: this programmo was filled by every one I saw
vote. Darin ' the day, at intervals, I saw Dr. Hen
ry Jackf the proprietor of the rancbe)anJ one of tho
clurks in the store engaged in making out a list of
names. After writing awhile one of. them would
put the l'ut in bis pocket and go over to the' polls
and go inside, and from conversations that I subse-nut-nrly
beard between tha parties I im well eatis-
fied in my own mini max me sua usis were copiea
icto the noil-books and returned 03 voters. The re
turns, if I remember right!y,gavc 2oS votes, all tor
Experience Eitabr;ok. To the best of my knowl
edge and belief I do not think there were over sixty
different persons it or around the polls during the
day. .About 6 o'olock p., m.the polls were declared
cloitd, and tho ballot-buxea were deposited atJacks
store. A short time after tho polls were closed two
men -came in from llum o reek, I Lclieve, and de
sired to vote: the ballot-boxea were again taken to
the polls and tho ballots were recieved.
I am satisfied in my own mind that one of the
clerks wag under tweDty-one years of age, and . that
another one of the clcrks( or probably one of the
Judges ")was an unnaturalized foreigner. , This I
learned through conversation with parties acqnaint
ed with tuem. The Judges and clerks of the elect
ion were in my opinion all under the influence of
liquor and one or two of ihein wore drunk and unfit
for an v kind of business. As an evidence of thi
oneofthcm' I think br the name of Burke) signed
his own name to one of the poll-books or returns
mi. his wifo's pani3 to the other. ' Tho error was
corrected the next day, the said Curko declaring
that, "by God be wanted people to know that his
wife had a finder in that election!" Of the mena
round the polls during the day 1 do not think that
more than onohalf of them were residents of tho
coun'y or precinct, the balance being emigrants.

of the election, who -was in business

there were in that region, that there was

Strickland and Goss at DrownTille.
Hon. Silas A. Strickland and J. Q.
Goss, Esq., both of Bellevue, addressed
the people at' this place, on Monday eve
ning last. We have not spaee to review
their speeches in detail. Suffice it to say
"nobody was hurt."
Mr. Goss lead off in along speech re
ferring almost entirely to national poli
tics. His style was gentlemanly, but the
subjects poorly handled. For instance he
undertook to show that . the Republican
party were pro-slavery! "Perhaps"
that's so, and "Perhaps" net.
Silas followed to "make a noise," and
have the "fellers holler." By his par
ticular reouest there were no ladies pres-
ent. Had they been on h;
been "op a tree,
speech consisted almost exclusively of very
smutty anecdotes. Any one could see he
felt that he was on the "wrong track."
TTr undertook to support men and meas-
ures against whom and which he has al
ways battled. Ia 50 doing his tongue
very naturally faltered, his knees shook,
his whole frame quivered as it were. It
was decidedly rich to see and hear Strick
land advocate the elevation of a man
who but a short -.while ago he spoke of
in Euch language as we copy below,
while editor cf the Bellevue Gazettte.' No
longer ago than in 1S5S, in speaking of
Morton, he taid: We quote from the
files before us.

whose exfunpl, in this instance, ho hat followed to

Noticing Morton's appointment as the
Secretary of the Territory, he said :

., At the Breckinridge Democratic pre

Saturday the 1st inst., the. following res
olutions and preamble were "adopted by
unanimous consent", and copies ordered
to be furnished both the Herald and Ad
vertiser. We failed to receive a copy for
publication before the Convention. We
copy, however, from the Herald, not on
ly to advertise the .sentiments or princi
ples contained, but for preservation as
a literary puriositj. We always suppos
ed "Jeemes Wolcott" was the author of
the' famous' "Catamount Story," but we
fear he "smcuged;" the peculiar style of
writing from a man who wanted to beta

healthiest looking" preamble and reso
lutions, "except their untimely death we
ever saw lying before our office door, dead
and weltering in its own blood,"
Whereas, There is in this Territory a party calling
themselves Republicans, whose principles are tua ag

whole aim of this came party is to break down the
Demcracy of the Territory, Therefore, we the Democ

leaders to the minds of al 1 thinking men, that they may

Fellov-Deinocrais of the Douglas u:ing :
In my last, it will be remembered, 1
asserted that the Nebraska Democratic
Platform "was "an ambiguous, bundled,
internntic: platform ;" I there discussed
part cf the "intervention ;". and, now
to take it as it -comes let us see in how
much it is "ambiguously bungled" :
The second clause, in the first resolu
tion, reads :
And while we reecpnize the Constitutional rights Of all
sectious of our common Union, and of all Democrats, to
independence of pinion on local questions."
Perhaps this was intended to be their
'Popular Sovereignty' in a 'nut shell.'
They urecognize the Constitutional rights
of ALL DEMOCRATS to independence
of opinion on local questions."
Douglas Democrats, arouse ye! Im

for a day '(if "that, will suffice) of thanks

of "independence of opinion," by this most
puisant and generous Convention! Oh!

The Game of Bragg.
; Morton's friends throughout the Ter
ritory, are playing the game of bragg
beautifully. The ' only two papers in the
Tenitory" are filled with extracts of
letters, purporting to come from various
portions of the Territory -but which in
realiiy are written by the editors in their
sanctums, or Morton's' friends in their
own towns stating that Mr. Buchanan's
Territorial Secretary, J. Sterling Morton,
is carrying, everything before him. The
bob-tailed speakers, and those hired by the
day to canvass the Territory for Morton,
come into Nemaha, and tell us that Cass
county i3 sure for Morton ; they then go
into Richardson and say to the" people
there that Morton will carry Nemaha
county ; and thus they go all over the
Territory. While Daily and Morton were
speaking in Omaha, on Monday last, dis
patches were received here every few
minutes, stating that Morton was actual
ly devouring Daily. We began to think
it the duty of Daily's friends to notify his
family that they very likely would never !

to use its "executive patronage" to force

of this "seat of Empire," and, finding it
could not do that, to ."aid" the passage of
the ''English Bill," which will keep the
Territories, composing this "seat of Em

suming the position of a State, for at
least five ' years, if not more. Was it
part of its "fostering care" to bring on
the Lund Sales for the benefit of its
."Land Shark" adherents, at the expea e
of actual settlers, who had come, lived
and labored here to make this "the seat o
empire". Vas it part of its"foslering care
to veto the "Homestead Bill," our Ter-
ritoral Democrat Platform to the con
trary, notwithstanding. And is it part o
its "fostering care", now, to say that the
"Territories have no sovereignty about
them." and cannot legislate, either way.
upon the question, but that slavery may
fasten itself upon the Territories, and
then; if, they form- free State Constitu
tions, they must buy the slaves or have a
slave State till they all die. Was it part
of the "fostering care" of its "appointee'
in this Territory to veto the bill prohibit
4ng slavery ; and, was it part of Morton's
"fostering care" to do, what he had reviled
Secretary Cumings for attempting to do
to take the public printing out of the
hands of the Legislature, and have it
done in JVew York!
Here is the last clause in the first reso
lution : "
The supporters of Morton are busily
engaged in private, cn the stump, aiid
through their "only two papers in Ne
braska" asserting that his opponents are
negro equality men, abolitionists, under
ground railroad men, Sec. No cne, latter
ly, has been mere earnestly engaged in
disseminating these false reports than
Reynolds, of the Nebraska City JVevs.
He i3 a beautiful specimen of consistency !
Last winter, this same Reynolds who
was then," and is yet the Editor of Mor
ton's paper, the Nebraska City Veirs
was a member of the lower branch of the
Nebraska Legislature ; and while the
bill to prohibit slavery was under consid
eration,' he offered the following, as an
amendment thereto. See page 101 House
Journal, 18-59 :
"Mr. Reynolds of Otoe, moved to amenl as fol
lows: uec. 2. Any black or mulatto person, or Indian,
or any person of Negro or Indian blood, shall be per
mitted togive evidence in favor or against any white
person whatever: and hiscr her testimony tsha!l be
entitled to theVame weight and credit in the courts
of this Territory as that of any white person."
Does it not sound well; and is it not
beautiful consistency in this man Reynolds
to now call Morton's opponents "woolly
heads," "abolitionits," and charge them
with being "negro equality men !" How
some men can act the hypocrite ; be on
this side to-day and that side to-morrow.
There is a certain Morton man, not an
hundred miles from Brownville, who is
making himself very conspicuous telling
falsehoods as to a certain candidate on the
opposite ticket : that he is connected with
the U. G. R., &c. Now, this man may
not feel very comfortable to have it proven
that his house was made the head quarters,
in this region, of the infamous Jim Lane
and his men during Kansas troubles; and
further that he himself harbored stolen
negroes, knowing them to be such. ''Look
out for breakers a-head." "There is i
heap of fun in America," and we pro

they wpuld cease to "recognize" him as

Is there a new Democratic party ? Have
we a new test amonsr U3 ? If so, why do
the friends of Mr. Morton claim that he
is a Popular Sovereignty Democrat? Can
he be so and stand pledged a3 he does ?
This idea of a National Democratic party
and a sectional Territorial Democratic
party will nit stand the test. The Dem
ocratic party in the States, that reaffirmed
the Cincinnati Platform, and placed Judge
Douglas upon it as a National man, is the
only National party ; then, are Douglas
Democrats in the Territories where the
principle he is defending is to operate

creed, the principles of Thomas Jefferson

letter to Holmes, or his "Notes on Vir

Territory do not "recognize" a udivis:onl"
It i3 plain that he believed Congress had
power over the Territories; it is, also,
plain that Douglas holds that the right is
