ever may heretofore have been their po
. liiical preferences or affiliations have
.thrown them aside and stand upon a com:
won-platform for the preservation and
perpetuity of our government, which
rises high above party lines or distinc
tions. Tho emergency requires the
united. eflort of every lover of this coun
try be he Whls Democrat, Republican or
American; foreign or native born; be he
a resident of Ohio, Pennsylvania, New
York or Nebraska. Wo can see no issue
now other than for or against the govern

ual convictions. If the people of this
county and Territory thus feel and are in
clined to enter into any harmonious ar
rangement by which the best men can be
selected to fill our cilices, we cannot see
why it would not be for the better. It
can in our humble opinion be done with
out any sacrifice cf political opinions or
principles. But if good faith be not ex
ercised, and the object be to advance the
particular promotion or interest of this
that or the other individual or locality, why
then we say "hands off." Better be

Antecedants in this matter should be
everything, present pledges, but little if
anything. Let no man who is in the
least tinctured with secession have any
place however humble, among us.
The better way, we think, to get at a
harmonious action is to call a convention
of all who are in favor of the uncondi

the maintanancc of the integrity of the
National government and who will aid
the administration in its efforts to carry
out these objects.

" No Quarters."
Gen. Fillow commanding the rebel
forces from Tennessee, Kentucky and
Mississippi no A' in the southern part of
Missouri, to aid Jackson and Price in
murdering and running Union men out of
that State, has issued his proclamation in
which these cowardly and heathenish
declarator s are made:
He then assumes that the Stars and
Stripes is a banner on which is ioribed
" Beauty and Booty" and says:
This is the bold position now taken by
the traitors who are in arms to overthrow
a republican form of government and sub
stitute in its place a monarchy or military
despostism ! Declared to the world ia a
proclamation by one of the leaders. Are
Union men any longer in doubt as to the
mission of' these desparadoes, and will
the people longer permit rebels and sym
pathisers in their midst to act as spies
and aid such devils in their work of de
struction ? Self-preservation will net per
mit it, even if there were no ether con
sideration involved. The time in fast ap
proaching when the friends and foes of
the country must take their active posi
tions on their respective sides of the line
the rebels themselves have drawn. If
we are to be driven to such an extremity,
the sooner adopted the better, and the
sooner the contest will be ended. Arouse
freemen, and to your posts! Either
crush out treason, or sink beneath its iron
heel in iheattempi. Let it not be said
"you knew you duty but did it not."
Nebraska Regiment
We noticed last week that five compa
nies of the Nebraska Regiment had gone
down the River on the Steamer West
WTind. There destination was not known
at the time. It appears they were as far
as Independence, Mo., where they had
a little brush with "seseshers." They
dispersed an organization of rebels at that
place, and liberated a number of Union
men who had been taken prisoners, and
were confined in jail. They then return
ed to St. Joseph, where they now are
and to which place the balance of the re
giment has been ordered by Gen. Fre
mont. They may remain there for a
while at least ; but we presume they will
soon be called into active service at Cairo
Wherever the Nebraska Regiment may
go, or in what service they may be en
gaged, we have no fears but that they'll
do their duty as brave loyal soldiers, and
be justly entitled to the plaudit "well
done, good and faithful servants."
The remainder of the Regiment will
be down on the West Wind to-day or to

The Union men of Holt county, Mo.
held a large and enthusiastic meeting at
Oregon oa the-19th, ult., at whkh the
following, among other strong resolutions
were adopted: ;
Resolved, That wc, the Union men of
Holt Co., mutually agree and pledge our
selves to a firm adherance to the Constitu
tion of the United States and the State of
Missouri, and are determined come what
may to bear true allegiance to the Gov
ernment of the United States,
Resolved, That we will resist to the
death any attempt to absolve us from cur
allegiance to the Government of our
choice or to force us into a confederacy
which we regard as dangerous to our
Resolved, That we endorse the course
of the General Government, in station
ing troops in Missouri for the protection
of the persons and property of all loyal
citizens. -
Resolved, That we condemn the action
of C. F. Jackson, late Governor of the
State in levying war against the Govern
ment of the United States by issueing a
proclamation for fifty thousand troops to
repel what he is pleased to call an inva
sion of Missouri, by the United States
Brigadier General Cae.
On Thursday last an election was held
in this city for the selection of a Briga
dier General, in the place of General
Downs, who has now gene into the reg
ular service as Lieut. Col. Quite a
spirited time was witnessed. There be
ing, after the election of a General, a
general C(h)ampaign, in which there
were a great many disabled. The can
didates were Isaac Coe, Esq., of this
citjT, and Col. Robert W. Furnas, Brown
ville. Mr. Coe was the favorite individ
ual chosen: others who participated in
the conflict were not elevated to the same
position. We congratulate the militia of
the Territory upon the excellent choice
made. We know Mr. Coe 'like a book,'
and know him to be a most thorough, and
energetic and accomplished gentleman.
He also has lots of money, and is not
gingerly and stingy in its disbursement.
Whatevei Coe undertakes is bound to go
through. Here is success and our US?"
to Gen. Coe. ,
In this connection we- with pleasure
say, had our brother of the quill, Colonel
Furnas, been selected, the position would
have been more honored than the Col.
Foremost in every good word and work,
enterprising and industrious, Col. Fur
nas possesses many qualities recogniza
ble in his more successful competitor.
Brig. Gen. Coe. Nebraska City News.
We suggest most respectfully to Gen.
Coe that he proceed to organize the dis
trict composing his brigade, say each
county on the river, and those west as a
regiment. The necessary number of
companies are already, or soon can
be organized for this purpose. Concert
of action and efficiency can thus be se
cured, that we are convinced, can be had
in no other way. Then see that the In
dians on our Western borders are not on
ly loyal and true, but that in case of in
vasion they can be relied on. for assis
tance. It will not do to rely much upon
General Government for aid in this cri
sis, in case hostilities extend within our
borders. We know not what a day may
bring forth. These are times without
a precedent in the history of our coun
try, and it becomes us to be thoroughly
prepared to do the work ourselves if oc
casion should require.
Military Affairs In Atchison County,
On Friday and Saturday last the Lfnion
men of Atchison county, Mo., held a two
days encampment and drill at Nishina
bottana bridge, about half way between
this place anJ Rockport. It was a grand
Union demonstration. The number pres
ent and the determination manifested
ought to satisfy the rebels of that county
that the sooner they quiet themselves
and remain so the better it will be for
them. The Union men in that, and Holt
county both, have been tampered with as
long and as much as they will stand.
They have been disposed to bear with
very much abuse and annoyance rather
than take up arms ; but now they feel
that their own safety, and the ultimate
peace and quiet, and prosperity depends
upon their prompt and decisive action.
About four hundred of the bone and
sinew of Atchison county met as above
mentioned, for the purpose cf drilling and
a mutual understanding and consultation.
They organized themselves in-military
companies distributed through the county,
and are prepared to take the bull by the
horns. Go on in your good work. You
have the numerical strength to defend
yourselves and property, and if forced
to it to rout the last traitor from your
midst. Though Claib. Jackson, Jeff
Thompson, Ben McColloch, Gid Pillow
and other smaller fry traitors and demons
do swear to make you bite the dust, right
and God is on your side ; fear not.
"Wolves In Sheep's Clothing."
Scarcely a disunionist could be found in
Atchir,on County on Friday and Saturday
last. All claimed to be Union men
some carried Union flags on the drill
ground. That, we understand is the game
played by the seseshers down in Holt
county when the Military came up from
St. Joseph. It won't win. Can't fool old
birds with chaff. The Union men over
there kcow you all. and will keep a close
eye on you hereafter.
TheNebraska Regiment under Col.
Thayer has been ordered by Gen. Fre
mont to the command of operations in
and about St. Joseph.
The Weather and Corn Crop.
For near a.month past we have had no
rain in this section of Nebraska, and du
ring that time the weather has been not
only very warm, but excessively hot.
Some of the time the thermometer stood
at 109 in the shade. Vegetation in many,
instances has been litteraly burned up.
We picked tomatoes from vines in our
oxn garden a3 perfectly cooked as though
they had been in boiling water. The
corn crop which but a few weeks ago
bid fair to be the best ever known in this
country, the prospect now is entirely re
versed, and may be an entire failure, sod
corn will be; rain cannot save it. Corn
that was planted early and deep will es
cape entire destruction though we have
no more rain.
To-day, since the above was in type,
we have been favored with z most glori
ous soaking ram just in time.

For the Nebraska Advertiser.
- Mr. Editor: I noticed a few days
since, an account of the proceeding: cf
the Republican Central State Committee
of Ohio, which met in Columbus on the
25 cf July, to consider upon the course
they should pursue, in calling a convention
for the purpose of nominating officers to
be chosen at their coming State election,
when it was resolved by that body, that
itwas inexpedient in the present juncture
of national afiair3 to call a convention of
the Republican party of that State, and
that the Democratic Central Committee
of Ohio be requested to unite with them
in a call for a joint delegate convention
for the purpose of nominating a suitable
State ticket. The reasons for such ac
tion by said committee are obvious and
commendable. They did not consider it
a time for party strife and political excite
ment when our Country and Government
is in danger of being destroyed. They
did not consider it expedient to resuscitate
the old bitter partisan feeling of former
but more auspicious days of our National
existence, in this hour cf our country's
deepest peril when our liberties and free
institutions are menaced by a formidable
band of traitors and revolutionists seek
ing to overthrow the best government
that the wisdom of man could conceive
or the providence of God vouchsafe to a
people. Saiu committee considered it the
duty of all loyal citizens regardless of
former political associations or proclivities
to throw aside party feeling, and unke in
putting down rebellion, and punishing
treason. If the government is to be sus
tained there must be a concert of action
among its supporters until its power is
acknowledged, the partisan should be
buried in the patriot and the voice and
efforts of the people should be as a unit
in sustaining our institutions and main
taining the dignity and power of the
Government. Party strife would have a
tendency to divert the efforts, energies
and attention of the people from a vigor
ous prosecution of the War which the in
terests of the country demand. Such
undoubtedly were in part the reasons
which the Republican Central Committee
of Ohio assigned for their action in the
matter before referred to, and as the same
duty of laying aside for the present all
party feeling and excitement and uniting
in support of the government is equaly
incumbent upon the citizens of this Terri
tory I would suggest the propriety of the
respective party Central Committees of
this county uniting in a call at the proper
time, for a Union Convention to be held
at such time and place as they may agree
upon for the purpose of nominating candi
dates for county officers and members of
the Legislature. It would perhaps be
expedient for said committees to call a
Union Mass Meeting where the proposi
tion can be discussed, and if agreed to,
let a Union central committee be appoint
ed in lieu of the old committees consisting
of as many members as there are pre
cincts in the county. This committee can
then order an election' for joint delegates
to a convention, which shall meet at such
time and place as said committee may
direct for the purpose of making the ne
cessary nominations. The delegates can
be appointed to the several precincts,
pro-rata to the whole vote cast in same
last year. The basis of representation
to be fixed by said committee. The com
mittee to be appointed and delegates to
be elected irrespective of party, but care
should be taken that they are Union men
who will select men of undoubted loyalty
to the government, riot that a secessionist
could do any particular harm in any of the
offices to be filled, but to demonotrate to
such, that traitors and treason cannot
flourish in our midst. - By pursuing &uch
a course in the coming canvass we can
avoid the excitement of party strife and
the campaign will pass off without any
hard feeling on the part of either of the
quondam belligerant political parties.
Now is the time when Union men of all
parties'should bury their political feuds,
we have a higher and nobler duty toper
form than that of sustaining old party
organizations it is that of preserving our
government and protecting our liberties
which are being violently assailed by a
rebellious faction in the Southern States.
When peace and quiet shall again re
sume its sway incur now distracted coun
try, then new parties will undoubtedly
spring up, and upon new and what are to
us now unknown issues. Will the citi
zens of Nemaha county consider and act
upon this proposition for a Union Conven
tion. Uxion.

the public will appreciate, that whenever new s-calo
are put upon the market, s lure numbers have been
from time to tine dnrinn the 1 . t r t thirty years, it
seems to he the first and chief aim cf the makers, to
show that they are the s.nue as Fairbanks,' or lik'
them, or cave taken premiums over men, thus reu-s-niziag
the latter as the standard for excellence, aud
showing the stronghold they have upon the public con
fidence. It is a w?!l-known fact that while most of
these ccales have, after inoro or less trial, passed
mainly out of use, Fairbanks' have gene steadily for
ward, increasinj in public favor year after year, and
are now much more ceuerally u.ed than all others, nut
only in this country, but wherever American commerce
has been carried. This could uot be so if they were net
all that is claimed for them in respect to their dura
