THE UNION REPUBLICAN TER-
v Meets next Wednesday the 17th inst.
at Nebraska City. Very little idea can
notr be found as to who will be the nom
inee. The delegates from this County
tre instructed to cast their votes for Hon.
T. W. Tipton; the delegates from Otoe,
.it is supposed are mostly for Col. O. II.
Ir'uh. Those from Cass will do all in
ihetr power to nominate their fellow
citizen Hon. T. M. Marquett. Douglas
County, we understand, will support the
Governor, Hon. . Alvin Sanders.
'Although Mr. Daily has declined being
a candidate, the delegates from Richard
son County, we are told, will present his
came and give him their support. From
the smalleer Counties we have not heard.
It is possible they will present the names
of several candidates not mentioned
above- Should the Convention select
cither of the gentlemen above mentioned,
cr should they chocfe in their wis
dom, some one not at first presented to
the Convention, if en able, earn trt,
Union man, whether Republican or Dem
os rat weT give him our hearty suppori.
-There can be no shadow cf a doubt of
the nominee being fleeted-, hence th
Convention should look more to ability
than availability. From the list presen
ted they can select more than one who
would confer honor upon the Territory.
The delegates from Nmaha will pre
sent the i.ame of Hon, W. - Tipton,
because they know him o come up to
the Jeffe rftn standard, possessing hon
esty, capacity and integrity. He ha
i:;dt.iitable rgy, tr.J was an orator of
distinction lor.g before he cau.e to Ne
braska. Fer men are Lis equal tn the
stump. It may be ured by some that
he is a citizen of Naha County, and
cn the principle of rotatiou in office .they
may prefer taking a man from some oth
er place. Bat if the Convention is sat
isfied that he is the best man and capa
ble of making the best campaign they
ihoulJ not heitate to nominate him. The
doctrine of rotation in office ia a great
evil. It has in fact almost ruined our
Country. In the South they never ad
hcardto "rotation in office." When they
got a man in Congress that auired them
they kept him there. In the North they
pursued the opposite policy. Conse
quently the members from the South be
came statesmen and crafty politicians,
always able to out-mariourer us and carry
their uuasures, though in numbes they
uere a minority. There perhaps never
was a Congres that contains ao many
weak members of all parties as present
the result of the doctrine of "rotation in
off cp. The mon able men in more than
a hundred Congressional districts were
ignored because they did not happen to
live in the right County or Ward. We
have no with to disparage the claims of
any one from any other county; we want
the Convection to select the best man.
Since the above was in type, we have
learned that Gage County goes for Tip
ton. Burt and Cumming Counties, for
Irith first and Tipton second. The del
egates from Douglas, according, to'a pri
vate letter received here, will be divided
between Saunders, Paddock, Hitchcpck
and Lushbaugh. Mny of the Dele
gates, however, from different parts of
the Territory, prefer Daily to any other

For weeks past we heard accounts of
depredations by the Indians in Western
Kansas, Colorado and on the roads to the
Mountains. Our readers have heard of
the massacre by the Indians, of the
Teamsters belonging to Crowlk. Barrett's
Train on the road from Kansas to New
Mexico. There murders and thefts were
all committed by long-haired Warriors,
and hence belonged to some of the Rocky
Some four weeks ago the
Chief word ao the Governor and
others cf Colorado that a portion of their
tribe were hostile to the whites, and that
they couiJ not control them. Lately they
have attacked numerous trains and ranch
es oo the Platte Rivtr road. Last week
they killed 7 men at one ranch and two
at another near Cottonwood Springs.
They seem to be impelled merely by a
devilish instinct for murder. They at
tack and murder indiscriminately, all
whom they meet, men, women and chil
dren, and half-civilized Indians as well
as whites. The Potawattaraies that
passed through this phce a few day? ago
on a hunting excursion to Iowa, were
prevented from going to their hunting
ground on the Republican Fork, from
fenr of the Shyenns. The othtr tribes
living , near the Missouri River, the
Pawnees, Otoes, and M;,iSDuris, Sacks
and Foxes, Iowas aad Shawnee? all
united together in their hunt on the Re
publican, thinking they would be strong
enough to defend themselves ayainst the
Shyenns, For a while they kept them
at bey, and during this time depredations
on tho roads against the whites were
checked, but it seems that tke various
bands cf -the Shyenns all got together,
gave battle to the allied tribes, and rout
ed them with great slaughter. This ac
complished, they divided up again in
small companies and came back to the

who could speak English called to a Mr.
Kelley, who was there, to come out to
the Indians, He of. course would not go,
but told , the interpreter to come to the
heuse if he wanted to see him. The In
dian came up, shok hands -with Kelley,
and commenced to talk. Kelley asked
him what they meant, that their appear
ance indicated war. "Oh" caid the In
dian, "we friendly; we no hurt white
man ; we had fight with Pawnees on Re
publican, and whipped them, but we lost
our provisions, and come over to see white

Mr. Kelley and a Mr. Butler had come
outside of the door ; a signal gun was
fired in the brush, and evtry Indian drew
his bow and fired. One arrow passed
clear through the breast of Mr. Kelley,
who expired immediately. Mr. Butler
and one ether man fell dead. They
would -ablv have come iuto the house

at this moment they heard a train ap

The Nebraska City News the most
abusive vilifier of loyalty and abettor of
treason in Nebraska in its last issue
offers some very untimely abuse to T.
W. Tipton, in commenting upon a sermon
delivered in Nebraska City on Fast Day.
It accuses him of having desecrated a
house of God, for political purposes, and
delivered himself of a Shoddy speech
therein." And in' the same article: "The
jack and the horse kind, mixed, make
goed mules; but the Preacher and the
Politician crossed. make a very infeiior
hybrid, if Tipton e an average speci
men." Knowing Mr. Tipton, as we do, we
can only ray, that did the editor of the

House of God" that Mr. Tipton does, he
could never be so complete a blackguard,
her- act so like a traitor.
REBEL SECRET SOCIETY.
A secret rebel society has been exposed
at St Louis. The avowed and strorn ob-
jrcts of the second, third and fourth de
rees is to net tne lociederacy. ihe
moit surprising feature. about it is that a
majority of the Democrats of Missouri
belong to it.. Also scores of thousandsi
in Illinois, and Indiana and Ohio. The
St. Louis Republican at first ridiculed the
idea of its existence, but after the Head
Officers of the institution in Missouri,
were arreted, and on examination, be
fore the Provost Marshal, made confes
sion, it reluctantly admits it. Democrats
are not all members of this organization,
but all the members of this organization
are democrats, and they ure sufficiently
numerous in the Northwestern States,
to control the party to a great extent.
Shyennjheir aim is, if possible to inaugurate a
new rebellion, and establish a North
"Wre3tern Confederacy. Smith, their Sec
retary at St. Louis, confesses having pur
chased revolvers, -boxed them up and
sent thfm to the North Missouri, 'o be
used of course by bush-whackers. It
could be for nothing else. And yet there
are good Union men here and every
here who still adhere to the Democrat
ic party, and will support its nominees.
Such men, though some of them mean
right, are all practically half rebels.

sent a force of cavalry. Long's and La

strong, on. the 26th, under command of
General Ed. McCock, to destroy the Ma
con and Western Road. They had des
troyed eighteen milesof road, and star
ted to capture a train of five hundred
wagonss from Atlanta to Macon or
Columbus. McCook captured this train
near Newman, with fire hundred men,
including one hundred and twenty-seven
officers ; the wagons were laden with
valuable etcres, inclodins liquors and pri
vate property of General Hood, and oth
ers, after possessing themselves of what
they wanted the wagons were burned.--McCook
started to return with his pris
oners and three thousand mules, Lu was
overtaken by a rebel force under Ranson,
so large as to completely surround htm !
a desperate engagement followed, during
which many cf McCook's men escaped
and found their way to Marrietta. The
number of Federals captured is supposed
to reach two thousand. This disaster is
attributed to troops partaking too freely
of liquors found in the captured train.
Long's brisade consisted of the 3d and

Chicago, August 6 The following in
regard to the battle on the 23ih is from
the Cincinnati Commercial :
.About half past ten in the forenoon
Thursday the signal officers of the' 15th
corps reported to General Logan that a
heavy column of infantry was seen issu
ing out of Atlanta, going southward with
the evident intention of attempting to
turn our right flank, upon this an
nouncement he began to throw up works,
and bad only time to complete the rude
defences of rails and poles, without a
shovelful of earth, when the rebels rush
ed upon them with great impetuoeity and
drove them in. This was about noon.
The rebels evidently thcught they had
made a circuit sufficiently wide to bring
them upon our flank, but were mistakeu,
and came up front to frout out of the
breast-works. The woods are so dense
that is doub'ful if they could see the ex
tent of our works, and. besides, the pris
oners stat that the leaders represented
to their men-that we were retreating, and
needed only to be attacked with spirit to
rout us. The heaviest shock of the as
sault fell on the 2d and 4th divisions.
and for a time it was not certain that we
would be able to hold our position, but
finally by the reinforcement of a single
Regiment, judiciously distributed, deter
mined the question, and the rebels were
driven back with 'severe loss. They
were, however, not to be thus easily dis
coiufitted. From noon untill nearly
night the firing was incessant, swelling
out into a fierce roar as the rebels char
ged our lines, and dying away as they
During the afternoon the rebels made

ter nightfall, iu vain attempt to recover
hundreds of their dead and dying who
had fallen near our lines- All of these
were useless, though they kppt gradually
moving to our right, so thai each as
sault threatened more and more 'to swing
rouncfand flank us. Our force was
enough, and only enough to prevent disas
ter from this cause. During the day the
4;h corps captured five colors aud one
thousand stand of arms. Our center and
lef confined! their operations entirely to
making demonstrations to attract atten
tion from the right wing ; the troops did
not come to close quarters on this part cf
