The meeting for the ratification of the
State and National ticket held in Brown
ville cn last Saturday was well attended.
The Republicans are jutulant, and in
dorse the ticket, both Slate and National,
and especially endorse the action of the
delegates from thi State to the Chicago
Convention. Speeches were mod ty
lie welt, Furnas, Rich, Porter, Carson,
Fairlroiher, Dorsey,, Atkinson and
others, and we are glad to inform the
ballance of the State that Republican
ism runs high in Nemaha county. We
are bound that nothing shall stand in the
way of a full, united, and an increased
Republican vote in. the old Banner coun

names cf Grant and Colfax are echoing
from the city to the rich prairie, and
from the thriving farmers back to the

"A Good Thing. A Tortralture or
a Nebraska Senator."
Under this caption the Nebraska City
wVoc publishes an article from the Sa
vana (Mo.) Union, of a most scandalous
character, concerning Gen. Thayer, and
which the J"ars endorses with evident
relish by 6tyling it "a good thing," &.c.
This evinces a very low standard cf jour
nalifrn, even for a Democratic paper, on
ihe part of the JVetcs. It proves that it
has failed, and must fail in argument and
manly encounter with the General,
thai to fight the General oa the high
ground of Republicanism, end to urge
objections against his political record,
only ends in hopeless failure ; and that
the only chance to undermind his influ
ence and weaken his hold on the people,
is to indulge in low, scurrulous flings at
his personal character and private stand
ing in society.' And knowing not where
to begin, it has at last gratified its am
bition by fishing up from the lowest
sheet in Missouri the article refered to.
A Nebraska paper should have been the
last to give publicity to such abuse of one
cf its own citizens. Respect for our
State, for her citizens, for the reputation
cf tha press, and for the fraternity,
thould have precluded the publication of
euch an article in Nebraska. No wonder
then that the JVhcs is not ashamed to
proclaim against moral ideas, and moral

The Mayor's Powers.
The decision of Judge Lake last
Wednessday iu the case of Duval and
Brown, to the effect that the Mayor of
a city could not exercise judicial powers
under the constitution of the State, is
the occasion of a good deal of excitement
among the legal and judicial fraternity.
The decision i based, on eection 1 of
tbe article of the constitution entitletH
"Judiciary.", which eay that "the judicial
power cf the State shall be vested in a
supreme court, district courts, justice of
the peace, 6uch inferior courts as the
legislature may from time to time estab
lish." Under the Territorial organic
act. this power was still further restricted.
That declared that the judicial power
should be vested in a supreme court, dis
trict court?, probate justices and justices
of the peace, and expressly withheld
from the legislature the power to establ
ish oiher inferior courts.
Judge Lake held that the legislature
had never established the Mayor as an
inferior court, and he was therefore not
clothed with any judicial powers. This
decision is very sweeping in its reach,
and it would seem as though its results
will call for a legislative remedy.
At a meeting cf the Irish Republican
Club of Omaha it was Resolved. That
