Union Parly Platform.
Resolved, That we, the delegates to
this Convention, representing the Union
Party of Nebraska, are in favor of
immediate State organization, for the
lirst That in ourjudgement, it will
tend to promote the speedy settlement of
the Territory, and to develop its material
growth and prosperity.
Second That it will place under the
control of the people our School Lands,
and thereby largely contribute to reduce
taxation for the support of our Common
1 . Third That it will enable Nebraska
to select the Public Lands which the
General Government has proposed to
grant to her fora State University, Agri
cultural College, State Buildings, and for
tho developement of cur mineral resour
ces, before all the valuable lands within
our limits shall have been absotbed by
foreign speculators, and by the location of
Agricultural College Scrp issued to other
Fourth That the increased revenue
which may be derived from the taxation
of the property of foreign corporations,
from which no revenues have heretofore
been received would more than compen
sate for the increased expenses incident to
Resolved, That while we are in favor of
this measure for the reasons above assign
ed, and for many others which we might
mention, we' do Dot regard the question cf
State organization as in any proper sense
a party issue, but on the contrary, as a
question to be decided by each individual
citizen in accordance with his best judge
ment:. Submitted as it was by the joint
action cf Republicans and Democrats, we
regard it as purely a question of local po
licy, which every voter must deside for
himself, without regard" to his political
antecedents or attachments.
- Resolved, That the party which ha-s
triumphantly sustained and vindicated
the Government of the United States, aud
carried it safely through four years of
panguiDary war, waged by the enemies of
civil and religious liberty owes it to itself,
to its cherished principles and to humani
ty t secure liberty and equality before
the law, to all men.
Resolved, That we hereby pledge our
selves to render a hearty and earnest sup
port to the nominees of this Convention.

County Union Candidates.
Sam'i. 31. Rich is the Union Candi
date for State Senator from this county.
He is an able lawyer, a good speaker
and a perfect gentleman, as all wnocome
in contact with bin must acknowledge.
He came to this place about cne year
ago, and was last fall elected Prosecuting
Attorney Ly an overwhelming majority.
The opposition, we opine,' will ad;nit all
the above, and further, that he is more
than a match for their champion on the
stump, before the day cf election.
, The Candidates for Representative are
all well known as men of firmneis, alii
ity and integrity. Two of them Messrs
Polock and Faibbrotheh have nobly
served their country against the rebels,
and are still in the field ! They have
both served in the Territorial Legisla
ture, and served with honor to themselves
and benefit to their constituency. Wm.
G. Glasgow has been twice elected by
large majorities as Sheriff of this county.
His popularity is aptly illustrated by the
fact that last fall no copperhead could be
found who dared to run acrainst him.
D. C. Sanders has filled several impor
tant positions in this county with credit
to himself and his constituency, but for
the past two years has mixed very little
in politics. He tan demonstrated bi3
ability and integrity. All of these can
didates are sound Union men, and right
on National issues.
Let us say to all: Ed up and doing,
let not grass grow under your feet, but
be at work for the Union ticket ! A
belter ticket County and Territorial
was never offered before in this county !
They are all men capable of filling im
portant Legislative positions, and will
command respect wherever they go!
A severe cross-fre may bo expected,
but our men are Veterans in the Union
ranks, and will not suffer defeat at this
late date, though a thousand snakes
should raise the glittering crests and fill
the air with their poisonous breath.
Quite a tornado swept over this City
last Friday evening, about 7 o'clock, p.
m. Considerable rain had fallen previ-
ous to the heavy blow, and the sky in the
north west and west seemed clearing up,
with the exception of two detached
clouds, the cne moving from the south
west and moving toward the Northeast,
the other coming from north of north
west, or nearly in and opposite direction,
while wind was blowing steadily from
m - ma
west of. nonnwest. inesp two clouds
must have met just below this city, for
in an instant the wind change completely
to south of southwest and blew a hurri
cane, bo sudden, and witn sucn iorce
that it was with great difficulty
that doors and windows could be closed,
and many of our business men were com
pelled to remain from their families
the rain, hail and wind making it almost
certain death to venture out and trem
ble with apprehension lest they should
find their loved ones buried amid the
ruins of their homes. The storm seem
ed to increase for about fitfeen minutes,
rain and small hail-stones fell in torrents,
and then it gradually let up in about half
an hour. Our streets were completely
flooded, and on the bottom next the river
the water rushed along to the depth of
Few thought of damages done, ex
cept that which pertained immediately
to themselves, until next morning. The
amount of damage done in this city is
about as follows :
Christian Church, corner of 4th and
Atlantic streets, unroofed and south and
west walls blown down : loss SI ,500.
Loveless house, just above culvert on
Main street, partly "unroffed, loss S50.
Theo. Hill &, Co's Warehouse on the
evee, unroffed, loss 200. Den's ware
house, demolished, 100. L. S.. V. G.
Mills, slightly damaged, Ios3 about SJO.
First Presbyterian Church blown from
its foundation, the plastering damaged,
loss S300. I'olock's Brick-kiln wa? con
siderably damaged, Foster's residence,
unrooffed, the end of one of the old
buildings on the levee blown out, and
the others very Lear, yet, unlnckily, not
quite blown over. Muca other damage
was done which cannot be estimated.
The total loss will not fall far short ci
$5,000. Seme notion of the storm can
be had when it is remembered that all
this damage was done within a distance
of half mile..
Considerable damaged was done in
the country to crops and fences. We
have heard of no loss of life.
A Democratic Sleeting
Was held in the First Presbyterian
Church in this city last Tuesday even
ing. It was proposed at first to have it
on Monday night, but they knew January
would draw a bigger house than Morton,
and it was postponed.
J. Sterling Morton was introduced by
the man who advocated the right of se
cession in 1S61 ; and proceeded to de
liver an original eulogy on the late Hon.
Sam'l G. Daily. He opposed the Con
stitution because it was framed by the
Legislature, in defiance of the fact that
in 1S64 he opposed the framing of a
Constitution by a Convention because it
would cost tkepeople $20,000! How are ye,
'economy in public expenses that labor
nay be lightly burdened"! He said he
approved of the Constitution "because
it was a copperhead Constitution." This
was intended to sicken our impartial suf
frage friends ! He didn't cars to be Gov
ernor but hoped fora Democratic Legis
lature ! He soured terribly on Gov.
Saunder?, Gen. Thayer and fat offices,
and fendiy caressed Audy Johrson, and
thought Andy should remove all officials
that did not endorse his policy! Seem
in' to forget the fact, known to most of
his audience, that he held office under
f Bufchanan at the lime of the Lecompton
outrage, and when Old Back vetoed the
Homestead Bill, (for which Andy de
nounced him.) and didn't resign ! That
he held effice order Buchanan at the
time, and did yrge him," to bring on the
Land Sides, which set the Territory back
at least ten years ! No, he endorsed Bu
chanan ! ! ! Spoke of the lamented Lin
coln, (see his speech at Council Bluffs in
1563.) Said some very pertinent (?)
things, and subsided amid a feeble cheer.
Geo. F. Train was then called for,
but suggested Miller ; Miller said his
coming here was not for political purpos
es, merely to protect Train, wh'o. he said
paid his bills, (lucky for the landlord,)
but finally consented. Opened by con
gratulating himself that he supported
the President suppose he'd like to have
it reversed. Eulogized this district on
his defeat two years since' Wanted
rebel States admitted immediately; and
for hia opposition to Stale reffL-rred to
hs conscience (the title page cf Satan's
record of sin in Nebraska) and mention
ed its scruples ! He gave thanks because
he could t-peak in Nemaha county without
fear (of Col. Presson,) and retired amid
loud cheers for Train, which from Mil
ler's complacent loqJ he appropriated to
1 ram arose amid gieat expectations
from the audience. He shot so scatter
ins that it was impossible tor us to re-
port him entire. He said that his re
markable copperhead sumersault oa first
comwjr to this country alter tne re
bellion was at the request of Lincoln and
Seward ! He shot in occasional remarks
for Slate, all of which eudinsr in the
idea of electing a conservative Legisla
ture, as he said "to sustain President
Johnson in saving the couutry from be
ing crucified between two thieves, Sumner
and Stevens!1 He plead for mercy to
the South, and went in pathetically on
the Sermon on the Mount ! He de-
nouced politics, but prayed for the South !
He denounced politicians, but urged con
servative action! He seemed opposed
to everything but Morton, Miller, Andy
Johnson and George Francis Train !
The whole thing wa3 no doubt planed
beforehand. Morton was to make a
weak anti-State speech ; Miller was to
splutter a little, then they knew George
Francis Train would be calle'd for, from
curiosity if nothing else, and would de
liver a State speech and urge conservative
action! We have been tolerable on
Andy Johnson, but such political huck
stering as was done by these three oen
tlemen coupled with Johnson's Colora
do and Civil Rights Veto has nearly
"soured" us on Andy.
Two weeks since, the Nebraska City
News edited by Morton, who framed
the Democratic Platform pitched into
cur criticism on the same not denying
the points we urged as its intent and
claimed that the Preamble and first Res-
clution were copied "verbatim" (that'
his word) from tlie first inaugural ad
dress of President Thoma3 Jefferson."

all men, of whatever State or persuasion,
religious or political; peace, commerce
and honest friendship with all nations,
entangling alliances with nonj ; the sup

rights, as the most competent administra

tendencies j the preservation of the Gene
ral Government in its whole constitution'
al vigor, as the sheet-anchor of our
peace at home, and safety abroad ; a jeal
ous care of the right of election by the
people; a mild and safe corrective of
abuses which are lopped by the sword of
revolution, where peaceable remedies
are unprovided ; absolute acquiescence
injhe decisions of the majority, the vital
principle of Republics, from which there
is no appeal but to force, the vital prin
ciple and immediate parent of despotism;
a well disciplined militia, our best reli

The italics show what. Morton and the
Democratic Conventioners deem a verba

Jefferson. This is not astonishing when
we remember Morton's verbatim delivery
in 1SG0 of a portion Lippard V work en
titled '-Incidents at Bnena Vista." and
hi3 attempt to pam it off as original !
All should read the above carefully to
understand the Democratic Thomas Jeff
erson (?) Platform, for by it must their
candidates local and at large be
"Equal and exact justice to ail men," is
entirely ignored! "Absolute acquies
ence in the decisions of the majority, the
vital principle of Republics," is swept
aside, as useless in their verbatim Jtffer
sonian Platform ! "Encouragement of
agriculture," is passed aside with. con
tempt by the party whose Gubernatorial
Candidate urged the bringing on of the
Land Sales, and when requested refused
to sign a remonstrance !! The bringing
on of which sales, at that time, forced the
farmers of Nemaha. county to borrow
money at 50 and 60 per cent, and mort
gage to the amount of 613,130, of Rich
ardson county to the amount of 825,960,
of Pawnee County to the amount of
810,103- The terrible interest on which
has Lot amounted to much less than
S100.C00, which has kept the farmer's
"nose down to the grindstone" ever since!
Is it to le wonder'd at that such a man and
his party ignore the "encouragement
of agriculture" ? Let not Morion "pu!i

that he has kept a blooded Jack, for it

Let them shift as they please, the
Democratic ship has so many Jonas'
aboard that she is bound to founder.
Look at the garbled insult to the memory
of the founder cf pure Democracy !
Look at the men on their ticket, men
who have reviled the Union cause ; men
like Morton, who had to keep their
knavish tongues silent in the presence
of a Provost Marshal for fear their
treasonable thoughts if uttered would
carry them to fort Lafayette! Men
who, like their Congressional Candidate,
lamented that a sen of theirs should have
enlisted in the Union instead of the
rebel army ! Will you vote for such men
to govern and ruin the fair prospects of
our new State ?
"Governor" Morton in 1363.
In order that our readers may com
pare the Morton of to-day with tho Mor
ton of 1863, we give the following ex
tracts from' a speech which he delivered
before the democratic Club of Council
Bluffs, May 9th. 1S63 :
' So to an uupracticed speaker who at
tempts to-day the investigation of the
policies of the present Administration,
and endeavors to collect and put upon
exhibition some of the political monstros
ities of AbolitioD is at once lost am

of the imbecility and thegrandure of the
knavery which has liueu that great
curiosity-shop of corruption at Washing
ton citv. over which Mr. A. Lincoln iu-
imitable anecdoter of Illinois presides,
with a mirth, and merriment as potent for
side-splitting as his arm and axe were

capable of one solution.- ihey chose
war because "through it they saw, or
thougt they saw, the abolition of slavery
in all the States. We have observed
from the speeches of Mr. Douglas that
they deliberstly voted for war, both in
the House and in the benate. JNow
came the manner of its inauguration, it
must be ostensibly commenced by the
South. Seward and Lincoln must provoke
them to fire upon the flag, and so rouse
Northern ire. we will not receive
their peace commissioners we will goad
them to desperate acts. And thus

energize fanatacism at Charleston; and

Hear hira plead for slavery and the
slave-holder's rebellion. Here is shown
spirit that caused him to be made Grand
Commander of. the Knight's of the Gol
den Circle in Nebraska. Read this ex
tract, and reflect, fellow-democrats, ere
you commit your new State Government
to a man who thus argued for secession.
The Southern States were ruled by just
such Gcvrcors when they"plunged into
the vortex of rebellion. And remember
ye Union men that every vote withdrawn

Of St. John's Church at Nemaha City
on May 6ih, was indeed 'a high day"
for the church men of Nemaha City and

On arriving- at the chr.ncel the Bishop
and Clergy entered. The request to con
secrate the Church to the Worship o
Almighty God, was made by the Rector
Wardens and Vestry and the paper read
by. the Rev. Mr. p.avis, aftei which the
regular services proceeded.
Morning prayer was said by the Rev
Messrs. Belts and Goodale, as far as
the Creed, and finished by the Rev. Mr
Davis. The Bishop then preached
powerful and eloquent senncnen the
great- necessity of establishing ihe Lords
house in all lands, that all Nations might
flow into it. which was listened lo with
marked attention by the crowded con
gregation that filled the Church.
The Church building is a beautifu
Gothic structure, with portch, nave and
chancel. The entire length is 50 feet.
Length of nave,43X22. The Architect
was Bishop Ttlbot ; bujr, Judge
Wheeler, of isrownville. Ihe stained
glass windows, whicli add so much to the
beauty of the interior of the church,
were a gift to the Parish from Doremus,
the celebrated glass stainer of New Jer

the Church is considered, by all who see
it, as an ornament to the country, whose
