Troops are pushing forward, and all
t:e wishing it their time to go.
Tit health of our men, as a general
ihingT compares favorably with other
companies. I am sorry to record the
kaihof one. of our Peru men, Henry
rDaed. lie died in one of the St. Louis
baspiials day before yesterday. You
would hardly believe me,. I presume,
when I say I deeply feel his loss. He
' was young and promising, good disposi
tiosed, honest and faithful in the dis
ctarge of bis duties, and deserving of
cy sincere respect.
c Another excellent young man, by the
tame of John McMichael, from Page
. coatAy, Iowa, died two or three days be-
. fore in one of .the hospitals. He occu
pied the fame lent with me when taken
net. My attachment was none the less
; for Lim than for. the other. Indeed he
was fine young man, and having been
with be so much eaten, drank and slept
with me I can truthfully testify to his
' eelf-sacrificing patriotism and public and
private worth. Ever cheerful, he com
manded the respect of his comrads and
fellow soldiers. There are one or two
from Nemaha county who are sick, but 1
hepe they may be better soon.

Vr. Editor: Dza - Sir I notice In
your issue of the 9th instant in your
Omaha correspondence, "Pawnee,." in
speaking of the Governor's Proclama
tion against Jayhawkers. thinks the
people of Brownville have been making
a fuss without sufficient cause.
As one who has taken some part in
this "fuss," I would say to Pawnee that
I think it was time for the law-abiding
people of this county to do something in
this matter, when Jayhawkers wefe over
running this country by robbing the
stores, stealing the horses and mules of
as good Union men as there are in this
country, and in one instance shooting
down a good Union man for no other of
fence than talking against Jayhawking
Is that worth making a 4 fuss" about ?
In Pawnee's estimation these acts are
all right because they were committed
by Union Jayhawkers no not worth
making a fuss about! Pawnee says we
are between two fires that of secession
ists and union jayhawkers! Well, 1
I think we can ?Rnd all such fires. We
are able to put down jayhawking, and if
Secesh shows his head on this side of
the river, we will put him down too ' ,.
Pawnee snys, now if a band of Mis
souri secession thieves visit your city,
can you expect aid from Union jayhawk
ers? I answer no. ; We never expect to
call on a band of highwaymen to protect
our lives and property. Pawnee savs
therefore, it is conclusive that you are
in a tight place. Ah, indeed, we are in
a tight place because we cannot call on
union jayhawkers for aid. If we are at
tacked by secession jayhawkers. I would
inform Pawnee that the people of Ne
maha county are able to defend them
selves against jayhawkers let them come
from where they m.y. and they are de
termined to do so.
I would inform Pawnee that those self
styled union jayhawkers have deceived
a great many good people. They have
made them believe that they were only
stealing from rebels, which is not the
fact. I know from my own knowledge
that they have stolen property from as
good union men as. are to be found in
the country. But even if what they say
was true that they are only jayhawking
from rebels, then they ire stealing from
Government, as all rebel property will be
confiscated by the Government.
RICHARD F. BARRET.

gotten up for the suppression of Jay
hawking in this county. His loyalty,
patriotism, and good intentions, none can
For the Nebraska Advertiser.
The Southern part of our Territory
has been thrown into an unusual state of
excitemedt by the frequent reports of
depredations committed by the marauding
bands in the name and style of Jay
hawkers, who for the last few weeks
have infested this portion of the country.
These bands have been acting under the
supervision of the notorious Cleveland,
whose whole course, since the commence
ment of his career in Kansas, has been
characterized by the most wanton acts-of
injustice and inhumanity.
To silence the voice of condemnation
that would be. raised apainst such unjust
oppression, and knowing that our citizens,
with a few exceptions, are loyal and true
to be Constitution and government, these
unprincipled villians have the audacity to
proclaim themselves Union men,- claim
ing that they act by the authority of the

lay honest sentiments, without fear or
hope of reward. If he gets through re
lying mainly on hi own sense of justice,
hi will be heartily , supported by every
a true. man. in the regiment.
We all feel deeply mortified at the re
ports' of jayhawking in Nebraska, and
e hope those who have been so ready
to condemn others in times past, will
prove their own honesty by uniting with
"their neighbors to suppress it. I cannot
see how any man, who can see the dread
, ful results which must come to our terri-
ruory from such business, can lend the
least sanction to such a practice. I do
not hesitate to say that no man. will al
low himtelt to keep such men or their
horses or other property about him, un
less he is willing to be bxanded as a thief
. himself. Let the County officers, if the
Legislature has made rc provision, use
every means in their power to suppress
it; and let the people sustain them, with
their lives and property if need be. A
community controlled by bands of lawless
c rcving men, unchecked for months, step
by step the virtuous become weakened ;
. laws are trampled on, and the founda
tions of society are broken up. Tears
fray elapse before security of peace or
property can again be restored. My
bope for the future is in Nebraska, and
. hence I feel deeply any 6tain upon her
There many things here which do not
tuit me. but as it all is in a common cause
I forbear now.
al excitement runs high, the sentiments
of sound conservative Unicumeo arefre
quntly misunderstood and misrepresented;
When we ccsider the fici that those
who engage jn robbing and stealing can
have no other reject thsn that of person
al gain, that the property which they
plunder is not surrendered to the Fede
ral government, but 13 converted to their
own use for their own personal benefit,
we must certainly be convinced that they
are actuated by no patriotic motives.
The Constitution provides against the
unauthorized deprivation of life, liberty
and property, and it declares that " the
right of the people to be secure in their
persons, houses, papers and effects against
unreasonable searches and seizure shall
not be violated." Then is not Jayhawk
ing as practiced in this part of tne coun
try, in direct violation of the Constitu
tion! I appeal to the candor of all law
abiding and loyal citizens, to those who
revere the Constitution and acknowledge
its supremacy, for a decission upon this
point. The citizens of a republican gov
ernment should be controlled either by
the civil laws of the land or by local mil
litary law, and when these are disregarded
they become outlaws and criminals. It
is a fact greatly to be lamented, and much
to be wondered at, that some of our citi
zens, whose positions and opinions upon
public matters are generally correct,
should sanction this system of Jayhawk
ing. A system, which has never been
recognized by the customs of any civi
lized country in times of peace or war, as
being either morally or legally right.
When the people of this country set the
civil law at defiance and admit the right
of each citizen, under any pretext what
ever, to plunder and rob his neighbor, or
still worse to allow parties who are iden
tified with us in no particular whatever,
to sit in judgement over our lives and
property, we are recognizing a most dan
gerous precedent which must inevitably
result in the complete devastation of the
To avert the calamity that would result
from a continuance of these depredations,
and to provide for the better security of
lives and property, an organization was
entered into by about 150 of the citizens
of Nemaha county, who respectively took
the oath to support. the laws and Consti
tution of the United States, and to pro
tect the lives and property of all loyal
citizens. This organization was resolved
into a military company, which having
entire confidence in the prudence, sagaci
ty and intrepidity of Capt. R. F. Barrett,
elected" him as their leader. . Under his
supervision this company has made seve
ral turns through the county, which have
resulted in restoring a feeling of security
to our citizens, and a temporary, and,
perhaps, permanent suspension of Jay
' When we take into consideration the
act that many of the members of this
military "company own no kind of pro
perty that could possibly be interferred
with by Jayhawkers ; that the cold and
inclement weather has in no instance de
terred them from a performance of their
arduous duties either by night or day ;
and that they neither receive nor expect
any compensation for their services, it
would certainly be unjust to charge them
with any selfish or sinister motives. Some
of our citizens have ' been apprehensive
that the active measures which we have
adopted to stop this Jayhawking would
call forth their vengeance upon our town.
But as a nightly guard is being kept up
which will instantly apprise us of their
arrival, they will find us fully prepared
to receive them, with a force acting under
civil and military authority sufficiently
formidable to resist any band of .Jay
hawkers in whatever shape they may

robbing to rebels and to those only who
are known to be in opposition :to the
Federal government. This has had the
effect to create a feeling in their favor
with a great many ardent Union men.
and a consequent spirit of opposition to
any organization that might .be raised to
suppress them. -
But a partial review of their acis will
establish the fact that" these self-styled
Union Jayhawkers do not confine their
depredations to rebels: The man -who
was shot at Peru ; Mr. Leahy, living
west of Peru, and from whom quite an
amount of property was taken;' Mr
Saville, who had his mules taken fron
him; the 'sheriff of 'oiircounty, Whb'was
assaulted a few days since by Cleveland
and his band, and his life put in peril
while in the discharge of official duties
having no connection with them whatever ;
are men whose Union sentiments have
never been questioned. And it is an un
deniable fact that up to this time in the
greater number of cases loyal citizens
have been made the victims.
But, even if we recognize the right of
these Jayhawkers to plunder from rebels
are we willing to submit tajheir jndge
ment as to our loyalty ? Tbe envy and
prejudice of neighbors, or personal dis
sension might very frequently settle the
stigma of being a secessionist upon good
sound Union men, which would afford a
A Card form Mr. Swan.
Whereas, certain persons have report
ed that Capt. Barrett's Anti-Jayhawk
Company, or a portion thereof, obtained
their suppers at my hotel sometime since,
also, feed for their horses, which they
did not pay for ; therefore, in justice to
Capt. Barrett and the members of his
company, I would state that at no time
have any of the members of said com
pany obtained entertainment at my house
that they.did not then and. there pay for
in good and lawful money of the United
States. And further, I never furnished
them any feed for their horses, but I am
informed that Mr. Baker gave them per
mission to feed their horses with his corn
at or near his house.

dog. Nothing but unparalled meanness
could have prompted the act. The old
fellow was kind, sociable, of good habits,
and "kindly esteemed by all whose good
fortune it was to make his acquaintance."
Duke was a family pet for ten years past ;
had watchfully guarded the cradle in
which lay sleeping our little ones ; had
sported with them on the grassy lawn and
over the hills ; had escorted them to and
from school, and grief stricken lay by
their sick bed-side, refusing nourishment
or consolation wnile deatn seemed to

tion on the monument of his dog Boat

favorite dog Duke:
"One who possessed beauty without
vanity, strength without insolence, cour
age without ferocity, and all the virtues
cf man without his vices. This praise,
which would be unmeaning flattery, if
inscribed over human ashes, is but a just
tribute to a dog."

Denied in heaven tbe soul he held ofl earth;
