Indian "war." "Th'e'Commissioners who
sat in judgement over Chiviogton should
be made to hold an iciest overthe.-e
butchered women, and thn have a chance
to withdraw their censure of Chiingion,
we believe they would do it. This war ' vahi four Copperhead and, four Rep ab
must be stopped, and treaties will nver , iicans.
An it nnr rlrK r.pnsnrin?? ft food nffiepr
help the matter. Maa well, equipped, J
and generals who. fight to, whip, are the
only effective arguments to these devels.
-We believe tha.t one Indian killed will do
more to bring about a lasting peace than
two treaties. " . :
. : Much is being said over the Territory
. about the coming election, generally
calling for the nomination of good men,
irrespociive of party issues. The "first
is all , right and well enough ; but we dif
. Ter.. with these "trrespective if party'
journals, inafmuch as we believe that ns
good men are generally elected under the
: Convention yiem as in a '-cruh rce.'".
We believe that this is generally a dodge
of the weaker naitvl in ordr m rfU.ir-
. ciz? politic, when th-y will at any
time take advantage of .oojc mi5top of
the dominant paYty in the States to re
.. organize and gam real advantage by
, .the truce. : The Demo-Copperhead party
will playoff this trick in this Territory
if they are perm itu-d the chanre, and we
cannot but feel surprised that any Union
paper will assist them in this business.
We desire to pee the Union party of this
county and the whole Territory stand as
firmly together and as. well organized as
they were during the war. This must
be done, and is as necessary now as it
.i -ever was. There is one issue which we
knowthe Copperhead party drtad, and
', ' which should and must. be squarely made
thia fall; in this county we may not cee
the danger cf inaction, but if 'this matter
it not attended to this fall, its bad effect
will be felt ever after.. We. allude to
. disfranchised .of 'others States who
.have come, and still may come; and set
' tie ia' this Territory. We believe our
wstivioiuic ciwuiu. ijcai winier. r.ass an

this Territory. The authorities where
. they have teen'disfranchised have been
best able to' judge whether they are fit
' or-riot to exercise the right of t-uffrage,
they.have decjtel that tliey are not, and
fir us to ttepf hemi in the full bloom of
citizenship would be as absurd as a coun
try justice reversing a decision of the
" Supreme Court of the. United. States: .
There are local reasons why a Con
- Tention should be held.
ttere is considerable diliercnce of.
cplnion as to .whether the people cf .this
county want a Herd Law. This has been
fiiffrUSSpH Inn pnr.'lT?'. and ( ltn'nl.' it, a
people should give soioa definite expre?

throughl the piuuiiry and Coucy Ccn

Again: ;he fees of rtir (bunty Ouicer

will go beyond any other District in the
Territory. Now, caji any sane person
doubt that this might have been doubled,
yes trebled, with a, proper effort? Our
advantage to the emigrant must be fair
ly placed .before the world, and to do
ihian organization is necessary. Such
an organization will be assisted in its
operations by the Territorial. and by the
General Government, by other Boards
and by our Legislature. A Commissioned
Agent sir id Le employed to travel to
foreign countries, and cur inducements
should be posted on every emigrant
steamer that lands in American ports
A constant correspondt'neo with eastern
and-European paper. should be ktpt tip.
At home this organization should assist
every emigrant in making a selection
and settlement. When these things are
done will we begin to reap the benefits
of our oumerou?. natural advantages, and
not till then. ' "
This is a matter of importance to all,
and to let inaction thwart this enterprise
is criminal. Every fool of prairie brok
en up adds to the material welth of all.

of organizing an Emmigrant Aid Socie

came on the train-returning, who told us
tha t two miles ahead the Indians would
be found. We started on in full lope,
were soon joined by -6 men of the 1st
Michigan. On reaching the top of a
high hill, we raw a wagon with two yoke
of cattle close by. There, after four
years of soldering, I saw the most horri
ble-sight l ever saw. On the ground
close tg the wagon lay an old lady who
wei afterwards, learned was 70 years tf
nge dead and scalped from the forehead
to the back bf her neck and from ear to
ear, her throat cut from ear to ear, one
brest cut off, a gash from the lower part
uf-her right brest to the centre of her
back, wkh an arrow sticking close to her

had also been, they kilTe a citizen and

the distance back' to our camp, they told

, It 7riH hardly be contended that lease

included, jmay reasonably be suppled to

Speaking of the late election, the Lou
isville Journal savs : MVVe . have for
6ome time been trying, not wLoiiy with
out success, to convince ourselves ihai the
number of actual rebels in soul has beerrv
inconsiderable since the close of the war;
but, in view of the results of last monday's
elections in some parts of Kentucky,, we
are apprehensive that we have been mis
taken. Certainly, soaie of the bitterest
and boIdest,-or rather most audacious, of
all tbe rebels and rebel sympathizers in
tfce Stale, have been elected to the Leg
islature by large majorities elected, not
in spite of thir being rebels or quasireb
els, but for the reason that they are so.
The Mississippi Convention election
resulted largely Conservative.
