And their sons were not born to bo slaves!
Tin last session of CoDgress diverted
the money appropriated for Legislative
expeoses fcr Nebraska, or so much of it
a was necessary to the payment of our
War Tax. This was hailed with pleas
tire by our citizens, as it was believed it
ttuld be a great relief to tax purer. It
as generally supposed there would be
ho Legislature this winter. B;t the last
session of the Legislature passed a law
providing for an election this fall. It
was consequently the duty of County
Clerks to give the required notice to fill
the law. borne in this cjunty were op
posed to electing any members to the
Legislature. But it. was found that an
c- euion could not be avoideJ unless the
people were unanimous in their opposi
tion to it. Other counties had held Con
eniions 'and. nominated candidates, and
t was thought best to elect men from this
ounty who would be in favor of holding
io session ; or if that could not be accom
plished, who would vote for an early ad
journment. A Convention was held and
candidates nominated, with instructions
lu carry out these views.
The "Statutes of r ebraska could no
doubt be improved in many particulars;
at there is to change needed of much
iportance. Indeed the Territory has
itlered from the law being" changed too
equently. The principal argument we
ife heard advanced in favor of holding
session this winter is that it is necessary
i pass appropriations for the Territorial
Hikers. It would be pretty bad finan
ierkig for the Territory to expend $20,
"H) or $30,000 on a Legislature for the
irpose of paying the officers a few hun
dred. But if it is a necessity that cannot
avoided to pass appropriations, it can
.1 be done in twenty -four hours.
Some argue that the Organic Act pro
tides for an annual session of the Legis
iture, and that it would invalidate the
ct utiles the Legislature met every
year. This clause, we think, was only
intended to I e "directory." and not to
bind the Territory, under every contin
gency, to hate a session of the Legisla
ture every year.
In several counties the members elec
ted were instructed to prevent a session
of the Legislature this Winter, if possi
ble ; or if they could not do that, to vote
o union is very strongly opposed to the
meeting of the Legislature, this winter
full session would run the Territory i
S20.C00 or 830,000 expense, which, with
.jur war tax, and our present debt, would
be more than we could ever pay. Re
pudiation would be inevitable. Those
elected under instructions would not dare
to encounter tne public maignatiou mat
will be raised against them by their vio
lation. Wre should like to see some ex
pression on this subject from the press of
the various parts of the Territory. If
'he press will give full expression to the
uMic opinion, we thing mere will be no
Election returns nave neenreceivea at
"hnaha from all the counties in the Ter
itory all official except four. Daily's
uajonty is 136. This time we think
thf re will be no contest. The people of
Nebraska have become disgusted with
fraud ; and have discountenanced it.
Perhaps there never was an election held
4'or Member of Congress any where, that
was absolutely free from illegal voting
and eculduggery ; and it may be there
vat some iu this. The Nebraska City
JYeirt thinks there was a great deal of
fraud. It' holds up its hands in horror,
and' wonders "when Nebraska will re
buke fraud, and as&ert her will." We
are -glad the etc is reforming. For four
yrars past it hat endorsed and defended
frauds committed in a wholesale manner,
that disgraced the Territory wherever its
name was known in the civilized world.
Tne JVats no doubt judges by the manner
it was conducted in Otoe County. Every
lutam possible was there resorted to, to
.swell the vote for Kinney. We are told
enteral thousaud dollars were there ex-peJ-d
fr Kinney a large portion of it
doeau-i by a. prominent Republican.
Thiiesti, intimidations, betting, whisky
and money were used by wholesale. We
lVarn from xaost reliable sources that
evt-B bribery was very extensively re
timid to by ihefritndsof the Democratic
Daily's enecjies charge that the voteSie
received in Richardson county is evi
dently a fraud. They specify nothing,
but merely think it strange he should
receive o large a vote in that county.
But Kinney received as great an loci eased
vote in Cass as Daily did in Richardson.

4W Daily's inftjority-
Two Companies have been mustered
in Company A, from Florence, and
Company B, from Omaha. The Compa
ny from this county start on Monday.
Wre are glad to see that they have pre
vailed on Dr. McPntRSosr to become an
applicant for Surgeon of the Regiment.
We know nothing of the qualifications of
Physicians from other parts of the Ter
ritory who may become candidates for
Surgeon, or whether there are any others
who may aspire to that position. Bat we
do know that Surgery is a science that
but a small portion of those who have
Dr. attached to their name, or even those
who have graduated in a medical college,
have acquired. Too many igporant
quacks succeed in being admitted into the
army as Surgeons, to mangle and butcher
the wounded soldiers. Dr. McPherson,
although engaged in other business 'Tor
the last six years of his residence in this
Territory, has, nevertheless, performed
nearly all the surgical operations in this
county, some of which by his consenting
so to do, has saved the parties from going
to St. Louis or other cities. Amputa
tions, club-foot, besides several other op
erations of an intricate nature, which
have come under our immediate notice,
have been entirely successfully performed.
We therefore, with the company, entire
ly endorse his recommendation to the
position for which he is an applicant.
Doctor, success to you.
Judge Kinney, in his speech in this
place, said he was sure of being elected.
Many Republicans were going to vote for
him, and unless he was defeated by the
most stupenduous frauds, his success was
certain. And one of the reasons assigned
by Mr. Taylor why Republicans should
not vote for Daily, was that he could not
be elected. They very much underrated
the ability of "Skisms" as a stumper.
He had much to contend against more
than at any previous election, and he had
few friends to assist him in stumping.
Yet he has proved more than a match
for all the boasted "intellect" of the Ter
ritory. Wherever Mr. Daily addressed
the people, they have given him large
majorities. Could) he have had lime to
have made three speeches in each county
he would have beaten Kinney 1500 votes.
r.There is no man in Nebraska who is
equal to Mr. Daily as a stump speaker-
no man in the Territory who has more

Mr. Editor : Since my Is st was written
the regiment has removed several de
grees north, andnotv the bracing winds
impart the healthy vigor to the frame,
and conjureup the, flush of health upon
the weather-beaten cheeks of the patient
soldier. On the 5th of the present month
we struck tents at camp near Helena,
Ark., packed our wagons, and marched on
board. steamer Rocket, and . steamed up
the river to this point. Five, hundred
miles of steamboat travel added a little
spice to our life's variety, and made us
momentarily forgetful of the weary past
Indeed it proved a Sabbath to the wearied
frames of the "rump" of the regiment;
and duriug our thirteen months of active
service, such Sabbaths as that only, our
men have known ! It may sound strange
ly to civil ears, but 'tis a fact beyond re
futation that there are men in the army
who live week in and week out, withou
knowing the name of the day that glides
so swiftly onward. Why, even the pres
ent writer, who was a moral observer of
the sacred day in civil life, has "breathed
the breath of life" on several Sabbaths,
in the army, without knowing them as
such. But those were days when cannon
thundered, and the sound of strife was
heard, when bang the muskets spoke, and
whiz the bullets flew, when peril hovered
near and grim de ith stalked abroad, w hen
picketing was rife, and excitement was
the chief, when all made up the clangor
of "fierce, intestine war." One year ago
to-day, our regiment broke up camp at
Syracuse in this State, and took up the
line of march for Springfield, as a part
of that grand army which the genius of
Fremont called together so quickly, and
which gave promise fair of deeds heroic
and sublime under the leadership of its
chosen chiefs Alas ! its star of destiny
which rose so resplendently soon sank ob
scurely beneath a cloud of jealous hate
and, though a year has well nigh gone,
it still remains unseen. The grand army
scattered, and though in fragments under
other names it has performed glorious
deeds, it exists only in name, and will
only thus be known in history; '-The
grand army of the W'est led by General
Fremont effected nothing and was broken
It seems that we are to go over some,
if not all, the ground we trod before, our
first camping ground in Missouri was at
Pilot Knob, and we are to go there again.
To-morrow or next day we are to go by
rail to that point. We may there remain
awhile, and may not. It was hoped our
regiment would be stationed somewhere
nntil filled up, but it seems our destiny is
to continue in active service until annini
lated or our term ol service expires. We
do not expect very desperate fighting this
side the river, unless the rebels leave
Tennessee and Mississippi by way of
Vicksburg and make a determined stand
in Arkansas, or attempt to capture St.
Louis. The latter effort will prove very
futile should they undertake it. The for
mer may answer for a lime, but eventu
ally they must succumb.
Col. Thayer did not come with us, and
we have heard that be has been appoint
ed Brigadier General. We expect him
every day. We are here waiting for our
transportation. When that comes we
will go on. Col. Livingston is absent,
sick, and Major Baumer commands the
Regiment. It is presumed if Thayer is
Brigadier General that Lieut-Col. Living
ston will be our Colonel, Maj. Baumer,
Lieutenant-Colonel, and Capt. Majors,
Major. The Governor could make no
belter appointments than those for the
Regiment, and none that would suit the
men better. Those officers have been
with' the Regiment all the lime, have
"been tried, weighed in the balance and
not found wanting."
However, you will be informed here
after of the above, and of our peregri
nations and doings from time to time.

general impression among military men
that the rebels ia front of McClellan will
soon fight. He has evidently crowded
them, and they evinced no disposition to
retreat. I he reasun why it is thought
they must rlht, is, that McClellan, by
moving upon t he arc of a circle, through
some near part of the Blue Ridge,
may get before Richmond as soon, if not
sooner than the rebels can march down
the valley to Staunton- -

of a refugee who brought the report from
Culpepper county, Ya.,of the anti:ipated

the counties where insubordination exists
threatens to resist the conscription act on
the plea of self-projection, and to defend
themselves against the negroes. It is be
lieved two-thirds of the slaves in Virgin
