The Editor of the Advertiser has

will remain there until after the adjourn
ment of the Legislature.
The latest Eastern papers and tele
grama we have seen, represent the atti-
' fade of. the English Press und Govern
ment as in an anjry mioi toward- the
United States. A war, however, is
not considered imminent. Tarty spirit,
and ambition for political power exists to
"as gfeat extent in England as in the Uni
ted States. Ever since the time of tbe
Charleses there has been two parties in
England the Whigs and the Tories.
The Tories are the aristocratic party,
the so-called conservative party. The
Whigs are the progressive party. The
Whig party is now in power in Eng
land.' It has always been mere favor-
able to "America and Republican prin
ples than the Tories. The present
' opportunity i seized on ty the Tory
leaders to- manufacture capital for the
purpose of regaining power. The Whig
press-is divided some papers siding
with, the United States ; but others, to
''take the wind out of the sailes" cf the
; Tories, vie with the latter in their bitter

with the United States. If the Erglish
Government really wants war, a pretext
can'soon be trumped up. The action of
- this Government in giving up Mason and
Slidell, will satisfy the world that we are
willing to make any reasonable conces
sions . for the sake of peace. This act,
(though-if seems in some respects hu
miliating to American pride,) is only
carrying out a principle we have conten-
3ed" f cr for mere than sixty years. Eng
land, however, by this settlement, does
. not gain any moral advantage. She has
always claimed the right of search. She
has exercised it within the last three
years upon American vessels. She now

France, no doubt, would be neutral in
case of a war with England. She would
lopk on with as much complacency as the

the bear. She would cry, Go it Bull ;
go it Jonathan !" For it would, doubtless,
jnake France the great commercial na
tion. At present two-thirds of the com

ships of England and the United States,

Many of this class will neyer be able

It would be nonsense to advise such to
'build a barn." It would be a physical
imposibility for them to do it. "Blood
cannot be extracted from a turnip." But
men who arejille to buy three hundred
and twenty acres of land, and to fence and
cultivate eighty or a hundred acres, could,
if they had purchased but eighty acres,
and farmed but thirty of it, have built a
barn sufficiently large, and yet have made
as much money as now. And in ten
years they could have owned more land,

Mr. Polock, cf the First Nebraska Reg

Why is it there are no barns in this
Territory ? In all of the Middle States
even among the very first settlers, a
barn was considered indispensable by
every farmer.. Farmers, from New
York and Pennsylvania, who emigrated
to the then Far West, built a good barn
before, they, had a comfortable house.-
Buthere, no matter where the emigrant
is from, "he never thinks of building a
'barn. Yet barns are just as important
here as anywhere else. We have not
yet seen a good barn in this Territory .-
We have been told that Mr. Strong has
one in the . southern part of this county ;
and we are also informed that there are
one or two in Cass county, but as a gen
. .eral thing there are no barns here.' The
reasons are: The scarcity cf timber and
the high price of lumber, and the want of
eufucient capital on the part cf our far

cf our farmers are scarcely able to pro
cure the necessities cf life for themselves
and families. They are barely able "to
' make both ends meet," and are constantly
htrrassed, like a "toad under a harrow,'
until life is almost a burden. They are
always compelled to work to a disadvan
t?ge.. Their crops are improperly "put
iu," and still worse harvested. They
must be content with a "three-rail fence,"
end loose a portion cf their crop by their

There are rumor's of a fight in Ken

ordered to Green river a regiment of
fusileers and a regiment of light artillery
before he went forward. Buckner's cav
airy were within a short distance of our
pickets on the 30th, and it is supposed
that he intended attacking McCook in
force, to destroy the Green river bridge,
and retire. All of the regulars were
thrown across the bridge early on the
morning of the 30th.

"Capt. Thompson has arrived, and will
take command of his company to-morrow.
We are now in winter quarters in this
town; but we march more than we ever
did before. On the 12lh we marched
northwest over twenty miles came back
on the 13th at night. On the 15th at
daylight we were on the march south
west, to intercept some rebels that were
marching south from Lexington to join
rice, who is somewhere on the Osage
river. At night on the 16th we had got
ahead of them, and all through the fore-
art of the night we could hear the firing
between our advance guard and theirs;
ut in the morning they had given us the
slip, and by traveling all night they got
away from u not however until we had
tilled and wounded several of them, and
taken over SO prisoners. The 17th and
8ih were spent by us hunting around for
them, and on the 19th we started to come
back. In the course of the day we heard
of a party of 1,300 who were trying to
get to Price, so we took after them.
When our men overtook them, the rebels
fired two rounds and gave up. We cap
tured about 900 of them ; the rest es
caped. We had one man killed and
several wounded The rebels had two
killed that we know of, and some, woun
During night of the 19th the weather
urned colder very rapidly. We marched
all day on the 20th through a rolling

cold. An Indiana regiment was guard
ing the prisoners, and 100 Nebraskians
were guarding and taking care of the
saddle-horses and team3.: There were
about 80 saddle-horsei, and 65 wagons
with from two to four horses or mules.
Yesterday, the 21st, we reached our
quarters in a snow storm, and so ended
that expedition. How long we will re
main this time I know not. We may not
march for several weeks, but it would not
surprise us to get orders to march in two
hours. Such is a soldier's life I
These rebels are the most boastful,
ignorant men that I ever saw. They talk
and sing cf fighting until the last man is

then threw down their guns and surren

one, yet the party that we tried to inter

as we had, after marching all day marched
all night and all next day to get away
from us. They say that Price will soon
drive us out of Missouri, yet Price will
not stay but a few days in one place for
fear that we will catch him. Such is
Missouri chivalry ! I think it is time
they would fight more, or boast less.

This Memorial and Joint Resolution,
which looks to the relief of the tax pay
ers of Nebraska, introduced by Dr. Hol
laday of Nemaha couaty, some time ago,
was taken up Saturday the 4th, and put
on its passage after a short time spent in
speaking. I have not the vote by me
now, but will send it the first chance in
order that your readers may see who are
in favor of economizing at this perilous
juncture in the affairs of our Territory and
Nation. Here gentlemen have no ex
cuse for opposing the Memorial. By the
way Crow, Crother and Reid, of Nema

Memorial. One of these gentlemen, Mr.
Crother, s-tid 'Ae mould vote against thisx

of that time, learn how to sustain a bill cf

how men can sacrifice the interest of the
people on the merest pretext. It is said
that those who voted in the negative on

might be members again next winter ;

understand themselves, they will vote for

HON. JOHN M'PHERSON,'
Of the Nemaha Councilman District,
stands up like a man for the interest of

lamation against marauding bands known
and styled "Jayhawkers." The Gov.
cannot at present send you arms, but will
as soon as he can obtain them. It is to
be hoped all such excitement may speed
ily subside. The people here think the
"fuss" without sufficient cause, and-be-lieve
if .your city and county could be rid
of secession sympathizers, no " Jayhawk
er" wrould be seen in that part of th
Territory. But the citizens cf Brown
ville have now "got their foot into it"
whether it could be avoided or not, I am
not able to say and the consequences
may be, in the end, quite serious. Get
ting between two fires is a dangerous
position. As I understand it, your people
are exposed to the mercy of both Union
and Secession Jayhawkers. Now, if a
band of Missouri secession thieves visit
you, can you expect aid from the Union
Jayhawkers, even if they are in your
city ? Therefore, it is conclusive that you
are emphatically in a "tight place." I
am not surprised to hear of Jeff. Davisites
in any part of the Territory becoming
terribly alarmed at the appearance of
Union troops or of Union Jayhawkers.
It is really galling for Union men to be
required to protect, guard, or in any way
defend the property of those men whose
whole sympathies are for, and with, the
demons who are arrayed against the
Government. The time has. come for
men who desire the triumph of the South
to leave our borders. Union men cannot
live in the South, and traitors in word,
or act, should enjoy no longer the protec
tion of our laws, nor the aid of Union
citizens to stand guard over their prop
erty. We have too many Union men
only for the sake of getting the law and
the people to protect them. You may
have just such men now in your commu
nity. It would be well for you to be on
the lookout for these would-be traitors if
they had half a chance. They may give
you more trouble than Union Jayhawk
ers possibly can. Put not your trust in
men who exult'ed on the downfall of
Sumpter, and ever since rejoiced at the
defeat of the Federal arms ! These are
mere hints, and cost you nothing.

this measure is that it comes before our

sound of church bells is heard, and where
men respect, if they do not profess reli

Q"icr, JL3. i
The War for the Union.
A Fragment from the Dark Ages.
We were astonished on Monday upon
learning the terms of a bill introduced
into the Council, having for its title "An
act for the suppression of Jayhawking."
Sec. 1. Provides that all armed bodies
of men consisting of two or more, who
shall commit any theft, shall be deemed
guilty of land piracy, and upon conviction
shall suffer dath-
See. 2. Provides that any person who
shall feed or harbor such persons shall be
deemed accessory before the act, and
shall, on conviction, suffer death.
Sec. 3. Reads : That it shall be lawful
for any person or persons to kill, slay,
and destroy by all and every means
known for taking life, any armed person
or persons who shall, at the time of such
killing, be engaged in plundering, or
stealing,, or robbing, or attempting to
forcibly take and carry away any proper
ty belonging to another, or while secre
ting, removing, or driving away, or at
tempting to place any property or stock
beyond the reach of the owner.
Was anything more atrocious ever
conceived by the mind of man ? Its re
fined cruelty and barbarity is worthy the
bloody days of the Spanish Inquisition.
We have no particular objection to the
death penalty, and we are in favor, when
the law fails, cf the people taking upon
themselves the responsibility of punishing
crime in manner calculated to defend
their lives and property ; but at such
times the awused should be given a fair
and impartial trialjbef ore the people, and
it should never be undertaken while there
is the least shadow of popular passion
or prejudice against the prisoner. But
the idea ef allowing every man at pleas
ure to become an executioner, and em
powering him to administer the terrible
punishment of the law, without even the
shadow of a trial, is too great an innova-J
tion upon the custom of the times; too
glaring and complete an abrogation cf
every sense of justice and mercy, and too
repugnant to all "the honest dictates of
humanity to elicit the approbation of a
savage, much le33 of men who have been
reared with all the influences of Christi
anity around them.
In effect, thi3 law repeals our whole
criminal code, and offers a legislative
premium for murder; and under the in
fluence of its wontoa and blood-thirsty
pirit,no man's life would be safe, for it
