In 1S5S Nebraska was being rapidly
filled up with hardy pioneers from' the
East; invited here through the .pnperl
edited by this litel on honesty, Slorton.
The great induefemect lie, with others,
held out to the pioneer was that he could
come, take a claim,' and have three or four
years tune before the Land Sales would
ie . brougjil on Jo make, money out of
the land to pay for U ! With this in
ducement immigration had been pouring
ln'during u' and 'o7 ; the great maj' ri
ty had just si fi'.c ent means to build a cabin,

a khown by everyone at ulb Coriversanl

' In )-jS"j.vS;erlii)gi Mortoti was Sec

tpeculators were working with might and

Sales, vhen, after the land had been
oflVrtd, 'they could lay their Land War
rants .ypon our best lands! , Petition
were circulated requesting that the Lands
be offered ; did Morion then use his offi
cial influence to stay the greatest ciilam-
ity. that could befall Ntbraska? No!
The, very opposite is true; iu the Spripg
of ISoS HE SIGNED A PETITION
REQESTING BUCHANAN TO
ERING'ON TIU: LAND SALES IN
NEBRASKA ! and when,, afterwards,
requested to sign a remonstrance, which
actual settlers sent to Washington, IJE
The Sale3 forced to Mortgage in Ne
maha county, 27i348 acres of lajid which
actual settlers occupied; in Richardson
county, 13.102 acrCSJ in Pawnee coun
ty. C,$(J5 acres; the amount of money
vhich the pioneers were tins, ihrough
Morion's instrumentality, forced to bor
row., or tcsign their homes to speculators,
was in Nemaha $13,130 ; in Richardson,
$t5,96( ; in Pnce. S1G,1G3!; This
debt has ground down the settler and
set back Nebraska at leat five years ;
and yet A. F; Harvev, (the man who

No. 2 is false in figures and in asser
lion. Johnsoa.said . itiwjauld cost about
812,000,000. Everyone conversant with
the operations of the Bureau that in the
border States more while refugees have
received, rations than niggers." Pres
dent Johnson has recently directed that
rations to white refugees be discontinued
in some s ;ctions ; this Morton probably
deems a Radical measure!
No. 2. The President declares the
rebel Stales have repudiated; so also,
fcays the Philadelphia-Convention ; but".
Morton's old copperhead instincts would
vitalize it again! President Johnson, in
'61, declared that States, that rebelled,

ly this : .not .to recpgnize as valid any

This is' aVwa's to have been expected
by all who knew Mr. Utecht. lie is a
German; loyal to thek Government, as alii
Germans have been through the war. The
men who now fear and prate about negro
equality, once. formed the Know-Nothing
party which feared . the'dd dutch" s
they called them and murdered them in
the large cities. The German element
came to'this country to escape tyranny,
and can never work with " a party who
seek to grind into the dust four million
human beings, though theirskinbe black.
Mr. Uiechl has shown his hand, fear
lessly and firmly, as a patriot and a true
German. A German can never be
bought with a Post Office.
N. B. The only strange co-incidence
with regard to this is, that T. W. Bdr

the number of members of the U. S.
Representatives, says : - ''
IiBt UwjCongres. thus consists of 241
members, and by law, nho. a majoriiy ot
he whole number, or 191 members,' con
stitute a quorum. Soppose the members
elected from the Southern States should
meet in December, 1867, and be enough,
added to Northern members who believ
ed ih their right' to representation, and
who would meet with thetn, to constitute
a quorum ; and suppose the Northern
members who do not believe the South
eniithd to representation and who would
not meet, with theni should meet by them
selves, constituting less than a quorum of
'the 'whole riuiiiber.' The Pittsburg Chron
rele begins'to'see ' the possibility of such
an occurrane'e j' and it also sees that the
President will be onder the necessity of
recognizing one or the other of these
bedies as the valid,' Constitutional House'
of Representatives. He must send his
message to the one or to the other. He
must sign bills passed by the one or the
other. He must treat one or the other
as-a branch of Congress", clothed with
the power ofXmakinglaiv?, and' the other
as having do inch authority.' And un
der the 'circumstances assumed, there can
be very little doubt, in view of his known
opinions on the subject, that ' Prtsiient
Johnson will lecpgnizt the numerical quo
rum the body which contains a majority
of all the members as3 the only body
authorized by the Constitution to make
laws 'fur the United 'Stalest He will
probably send his message to' that body;
he will sign the bills -they pass, if con
curred in by the Senate, and will not re
cognize the acts of the other as valid in
any respect. ' The Senate, on the con
trary, will recognize a majority of mem
bers from all the States but ten. even if
they are a minority of the whole, as the
rpal Congress, and as such clothed wiih
all the powers of legislation."
Here we have the covert thrust of the
demagogae at the liberties of the people
whom he prates so much of. Think you
the above i not. as it, were from the hp
of .Andy Johnson ? Read the following
from his speech at Newark, Ohio ;
"UNLESS THE COURSE OF CON
GRESS IS ARRESTED BY YOUR
SUFFRAGE, he said. WE SHALL
i HAVE ANOTHER CIVIL WAR "
At GVitiii Pa., h''.$aid :
. "There seems to have been inaugurat
ed a policy in Congress, which, if per
sisted in, vould result in another struggle.
Reconciliation and harmony is what the
nation now needs ; but when; the work
ivas nearly completed. WE found a con
flict, between the EXECUTIVE and
Legislative . Departments of the Govern
ment ; and because ihe representative of
the people had undertaken to.' restore ihe
Government according to the Constim
tion, He (Andy Johnson, fh t representa
tive of the people) had. been denounced
as a tyrant and usurper."
Above is shown the programme'; next
the threat, from Johnson's own lips, and
third, is the reason .why he threatens.
The question Js, shall Andrew Johnson,
theExecutive; trsurp to himself the Le
islative "powers of the Government, and
be sustained in his threat of war, if Con
gress continue in considering itself the
Jaw..jn.aking.poffftr.iii Me peoph sustain
if Shall the President be allowed to
recoguize the rebel States as loyal, force
Congress to admit traitors to their halU,

The Ntb. City News, in July last,
said of Radicals who were "swinging
round the circle"' toward Johnson : ,
"We invite them to come in and sin no more.
At the tame time it ia our duty to inform them that
they arrived quite too late to take a front seat.
They will have to stand back like' a poor boy in a
bank. We hope a duo sense of their iniquities will
pervade their trembling 8' mis, and that before
oSoial life torninatei they will be fully prepared to
meet . Johnson."

The Copperheads, wiih Andrew John
oll nt iheir head, insist on including the
disfranchised neyrof-s for the sole purpose
of increasing ihe political power of the
reconstructed rbls at the expense of
the loyal men of ihu North. The ex
rebels peremptorially refuse to allow the
negroes to vote for members of Congress,
but they demand, the privilege of voting
