Republican Central Commit tec. The membersof the Republican Cen tral Committee, of Nemaha Connty, are requested to meet at the Republi can Club Rooms, in Mcpherson's Block, in Brownvllle, on next Satur day, August 1st, at 1J o'clock, P. M. A full attendance 19 absolutely neces sary for the transaction of the business which will come before it. We learn from visitors recently at Pawnee City, that Messrs. Curtis & Ftavy, merchant at that place, are erecting a new store building, which will be, when finished, one of the best in the State. The wall are stone, the front being beautifully hewn pil lars from rock found in the vicinity. The house will be CI feet in length, 24 in breadth and three etories high in cluding basement, making 32 feet. The roof will be of tin ; and the entire building fire-proof. Brick Pomeroy, in the La Crosse Democrat, of July 6th, previous to the Democratic nomination, said: "It is now as we write, as it has been for months, and will ever be in the future, a warfare between the slimy, corrupt, reckless, dishonest, money-using poll tical tricksters of New York, and the young Democracy of the great West, so rapidly becoming the seat of empire, when we can both reward friends and punish enemies." It seems that New York is ahead. The picture is well drawn and true We publish on our first page this week, for the benefit of our many readers in Salem, Fall City, Monteray , Long Branch, Middleburg, and El more precinct, in Richardson County, the'callof Mr. Allgewahr, of Arego, and wc hope it will be responded to in that spirit which insures success. -Richardson is a Republican county, and she must give no uncertain sound inlhe" approaching October election. Organization and work must be done. Personal aperations are as nothing. Local interests must be sacrificed, if needs be; and alljmust yield -something for' the public good. Let all Republicans come to the rescue, and organize for the public good. We hope soon to learn that Richardson county is organized from center to cercumfcrence, and ready for the con flict. We know that ome precincts are already in line ; let the others closely follow, and we have no fear for Richardson county. Opposition "Without Principle. The Democratic party is emphati cally an opposition party. When the North is for war then it is a peace party. When the Nation declares "Let their be peace," then it is a war party. When Uncle Sam calls for "three hundred thousand men" then it is opposed to the draft, oppos ed to coercion, opposed to increasing the army. When the Nation wants sixty thousand troops to keep the reb els at bay, then it is for the reduction of the army. When Congress propos es to reduce the army from fifty-three regiments down to thirty, then the Democratic members vote solid against reduction. When the nation thinks it wise to keep the rebel Stdtcs on probation until they show fruit meet for repentance, then it is clamorous for immediate restoration. When Congress proposed to admit North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Arkansas into the Union as fully reconstructed, its Democratic members vote solid against it. When the Nation i9 for paying the National debt, in accordance with the spirit and the letter of the law, it is for re pudiation. General Grnnt. Our citizens learned, last Tuesday morning, that Generals Grant, Sher man and Sheridan, would be at the Brownville Depot of the C. B. & St Joe. R. R:, at 11.30 A. M., and a host of Republicans and two Democrats em barked upon CapL. liarret's ferry, and tvfVp. in a sliorTiime. landed 'li the .. -j-, , . - , t "classic shores" of Scott City, Mo., whence they were conveyed by omni bus to the depot, arriving thirty min utes ahead of time. After dinner, at the Fisher House, the crowd ranged itelf around the de pot, seeking comfort in an atmosphere ranging from 05 to 105 In the shade, and from the jokes, tough yarns, and witicisms passing round, we should judge, enjoying the situation. , At last the shout start?, " the cars are coming;" the whistle shrieks, and the cars are here. The conductor informed the crowd the Generals were in the rear car. The editor of the Ad vertiser makingextra good time was the first to gain the " presence," and thake hands with Generals Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Harney and Blair. By this" time the cars were literally crammed. The Generals arose and eiood the hand shaking admirably, ap parently enjoying the pleasure of the meeting asvmuch as we. But soon the whistle calls us off from the pleasant interview; we leave the cars, which fctart amid the cheers andj?houts of the crowd, bearing the future President on toward his future home the White House. ' - , . . ' . The Seymour Record. . j When the Tweedle Hall convention was held in New York, in January A. D. 1861, James Buchanan wes President of the United States, and Congress was controlled by the Dem ocratic party. State after State In the South were holding conventions for the purpose of withdrawing from the Union. And the great question of the hour among rebels and there sympa thizers was, how shall we render sec cession a success, and among loyalists the equally great question arose for solution how shall this insurrection be suppressed. A convention Was called in Washington to effect a com promise and save the Union. The Unionists of that convention were prepared to grant any reasonable re quest so that the Union might be pre served. To them entrusted as to what should be done, the reply of the. rebel " element which had the control of the entire South, was, give Us a piece of paper, pen and ink and tell us to write our own terms and it shall be nothing short of eternal and entire separation. The Union must and shall be desolved. Now what project does that truly loyal man Gov ernor Seymour offer for the settlement of our difficulties, at the Tweedle Hall convention in January, 1861. In hi3 speech there he saj-s: "Let us also Bee if successful coercion by the North is less revolutionary than successful secession by the South. Shall we pre vent revolution by being foremost in overthrowing the principle of our gov ernment and all that makes it valua ble to our people and distinguishes it among the nations of the earth?" Up to this time nothing had been thought of except to maintain the Union by force of arms if they must, by peaceful means if they could. All peaceful means had been tried and failed, and the loyal heart was turn ing to the last resort, but to be told by Governor Seymour that "successful coercion was as revolutionary on the part of the North as successful seces sion on the part of the South." That to coerce the South the North would be "foremost in overthrowing the principle of our government and all that makes it valuable to our people and distinguishes it among the nations of the earth." Then what does the Governor suggest as a remedy for our political Ills? Two months later he says to Judge Charles H. Rugglesthat "the best thing for the North to do is to seek admission into the Southern Confederacy under the Montgomery constitution." In September, 1802, Mr. Lincoln is sues his proclamation of Emancipa tion, after which we have Seymour de claringthat "if the Union could not be restored except by emancipation, then it ought not to be restored." During the entire period of the war, in his speeches and messages, we find more of criticism of the government and its policy of punishing rebels of the North and South than ought else, and never a word of commendation. Seymour's Loyalty needs Con flrciation. We arise from the psrusal of an able matured article in the Omaha Herald wherein the editor of that paper la bors to prove that Gov. Seymour is, and has been, a truly loyal man When "Gen. Lee and his noble army' invaded Pennsylvania in 1S63, Secre tary Stanton telegraphed the Govern or of New York for troops to repel the invaders. The Governor replies " will order the New York and Brook Ivn troops to Philadelphia at once.' It is a fact that the Governor, as did the Governors of other States, sent troops as desired immediately. For this the President and Secretary were very thankful and so informed Gov ernor Seymour through his assistant Now, this is the sum and substance of the proof aduccd in favor of the Gov ernors loyalty. To our mind there are several questions arising for which the Herald may have satisfactory an swers. Why did not the President ami his war Secretary send their thanks to the Governor of Ohio, Indi ana, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, for they likewise sent troops ? Why is it necessary to labor so hard to prove Governor Seymour's loyalty? Why, if it is necessary, is there so little proof of the fact? Why does not somebody trT to prove Gen. Grant's loyalty ? Does this labored effort on the part of the Democratic press to bring them selves and their standard bearer with' in the spirit and terms of loyalty in dicate a great undercurrent of Union ism on the part of the great mass of voters, or is it a mere subterfug mere trickery on the part of the Her ald and its coadjutors to catch a few votes that they otherwise could not get. Why was it that Governor bey inour was regarded as a trusted friend in the ranks of our enemies and fear ed as a foe by the loyalist ? Why was it that the rebels shouted for Seymour when the news of his election as Gov ernor of New York reached their camp, and why was it they felt so sorrowful two years later at his defeat ? These questions under all the eircum stances- Mill suggest themselves to every. fafrniinded-man, and it may be well that he have some satisfactory argument to rest his faith upon before voting the Seymour-Blair ticket. The mere fact that such questions do arise in the minds of the intelligent voters, taint the ticket as a little un sound, so it would be well to clear the matter up at an early day. But in doing so don't be too zealous in your work or place too mucn stress on weaK and isolated facts, else the voter may presume to the prejudice of your tick et, that you have no better in reserve If the record is clear and unanswera ble, be bold and fearless ; if otherwise, we suggest great caution. The St. Joseph (Mo) Union says: "Last Fall.. Frank P. Blair mssed down the Mississippi River on a steam er which lay forsome time at our levee. A number of our citizens wentaboard to pav their respects to him. At length conversation turned upon the relative merits of Grant and Sherman, when one of the gentlemen present expressed it as His opinion that Sherman, was- much the abler man of the two. To this remark. Mr. Blair promptly re plied, "By G dl Grant knows more than Sherman and all the balance of them banged into one!" The Democratic Platform Re pudiated. Section First, " We demand the Im mediate restoration of all the states to their rights in the Union, &c." Section Sixth of the Democratic Platform, Bays, "We demand the re duction of the standing army and navy. The abolition of the Freed men's Bureau." Congress has had a bill before it for the "immediate" admission of the Southern States " to their rights in the Union," and on its final passage, and on each preliminary vote thereon, the Democratic members voted solid against the "restoration," and every Republican voted for it. President Johnson, whom they declare, in their platform, "is entitled" for opposing Congress, "to the gratitude of the whole American people, and on behalf of the Democratic party, we tender him our thanks for his patriotic efforts in that regard," vetoed the bill for the "restoration" of the five States "to their rights in the Union." And the Republicans, unaided by a single Dem ocrat, but opposed by every one, voted for such " restoration," and the bil became a law, "the President and the Democrats to the contrary, notwith standing." Again : Congress has had a bill be fore it to reduce the regular army from fifty-three regiments, its present count to thirty regiments, all told, and on its final passage in the-Senate, twenty eight Republicans voted for the reduc tion, and none against, and four Dem ocrats voted against its reduction, and none for it. Thirty Senators were ab sent. Thus, in -very important partic ular, the Democratic Platform has been repudiated in the " house of its friends." What shall we say then. Are the real sentiments of the Democratic nartv so odious to the country that A at - - they dare not seek to maintain them before the American people, and so set forth a set of principles which they will not maintain, but when pushed to the wall, go for wholesale repudia tion of the platform. Are Democrats reduced to circumstances so straighten that they seek to do indirectly wha they know they cannot obtain au thoritv to do directly. No wonder then that the judgment of the Ameri can people to-day is that the Demo cratic leaders cannot be trusted. Let justice, right, liberty, morality and good government march on, then, in spite of their opposition if they must For the Advertiser. Creditable Records. In looking over the columns of trash 01 the Brownville smut machine, an article headed, "Has no Creditable Re cord," drew inv special attention. JJr, Holladay, the editor of the smut ma chine, aforestud, manifests great indig nation towards Republicans lor inti mating that Frank Blair has no cred itable political record. The Doctor undoubtedly is so indignant because he, the Doc, on a very small scale, is just like Blair. Truth is, Blair's poli tical record is not creditable, no more than is the record of the sapient editor of the said smut machine. Blair is a po litical weather-cock and trickster, and Is, therefore, unreliable, so is the Doc tor, as every one acquainted with him knows. Since the commencement of the rebellion, the doctor has done the following things which prove my as sertion, viz : Published .a rebel paper, published a Union paper, made JJemo' cratic speeches, made Union speeches, has declared himself a Democrat, has declared himself a Republican, favored negro suffrage, and opposed negro suf frage, favored arming negroes to sup press rebellion, made Republican speeches, was nominated and elected by Radicals to the Territorial Council, and has held ofhee under A. Johnson Now he betrajrs the friends who gave him the only honorable positions he ever had, is again publishing a rebel paper, and like Blair, the " dorg has turned to his vomit." The Doctor beiner compared to General Blair. should not elate him too much, and it is hoped he will not get reder in the face than the common red jacket is wont to make him. It is no credit to the Doctor to be like Blair, which he is "has no creditable record." The Doctorexclaims,"0! the unmitigated baseness of ingratitute " yet every is- AT 1 . 1 t 1 sue uie saiu. binui macnine is nueu with lies, and slanderous fabrications about General Grant and his sol diers. All loyal people exclaim, O! me uasencss or sucn xngratituae is equalled Jonly by the hypocrisy of the giinoiet-eyed editor or the smut ma chine. Again the Doctor says: "A certain class of men lie for effect, ano ther because it was bred in their bones." How is it with the Doctor? What makes him lie so much? Maybe his bones have something to do with it how is your bones. Doctor?

From the Albany Evening Journal, published Immediately after the New York riots, we extract the following, not doubting but our Democratic friends may their find the same man upon the same platform they then en dorsed. The Journal charges: 1. That on the 4th of July, 1863, Horatio Seymour instructed the Unit ed States Government and the lower orders of the city of New York, that a mob could proclaim the law of .pub lic necessity as well as the Govern ment. 2. The mob did make the proclamat ion. and enforced it with fiendish acts of barbarism and bloodshed. 3. Governor Seymour called that mob together, expressed his sympat hy with it, said that it should be satisfied, ... . 1 J 1 Al 1 and thai ne wouiu nave ine arart sus pended and stopped. 4. Governor undertook to readPresi dent Lincoln a lecture in Constitution al law, directing his attention to the "temper of the people." and threat ened him with other acts of violent resistance, if he pursued the course entered upon. We charge Horatio Seymour, in that and kindled acts, with having fmrsued a course of conduct designedly n aid of the Rebels and to the retard ing of the Union cause, and allege that his skirts are crimson ayed with the blood of many men, North and South whose lives would have been saved had he consistently and persistently refused an manner oi open and secret countenance and support of the Re bellion. We charge Horatio Seymour, by the moral support which he gave Re bellion, and the moral discourage ment which he uniformly gave the Union efforts, with having prolonged the war, as well as contributed much to its origin, and that thus he was the cause of the expenditure of mihons o treasure which otherwise would have been saved. We charge that but for the conduct of Horatio Seymour and Horatio Sey mour's friends, the war would have been triumphantly closed long before It was, to the saving of thousands of lives and millions of money. We charge that the Rebel Govern ment was only able to keep its people with It the last half ot the war, by encouraging them to believe that the Seymours and Vallandinghams of the rsorth would in the end so revolution ize popular sentiment, that their de mands would be granted. And it was not until the Presidential election of 1S04, that this delusion was dispelled But if Seymour himself had refused the South his countenance, this feeling would not have existed, and the war would have ceased long before it did. We therefore hold-that Horatio Sey mour is jointly accountable with ..the originators of the Rebellion, for the fearful result of the war, and his con uucl in regard to the drait serves as an illustration of it. : SrRINODALE, Neb., ) July Gth, 1868. Hon. O. B. -Hewett Dear Sir: Appreciating, as we do, the value of your labors in the cause of education and hoping that you will attend the coming session of the State Teachers' Association, let me suggest the pro priety of bringing before that body the question of what school books should be used m our common schools, itou cannot imagine the needless variety of books now in our interior schools. Go with me, for instance, into the school room, we will observe that the teacher calls a single scholar to read ; next two will be called : then, perhaps, four or more will be called with but two books in the class, the teacher look ing over on one of these, or setting on at a distance, leaving the scholars to correct each other. Now, upon examining these classes, we find them all in the same cla'ss reader, that is the first reader, second reader, or third reader, as the case may be. bv as many different authors as there are classes ; such as Saunders, McGunie. Parker, &c. ISow, the rea son of this, is we have all come from different parts of the country, where these several books are used. The reason why this continues to be so, certainly is not ior the want oi means or of disposition to apply the correcton ; but there are so many vari eties they know not which to get. A teacher may cet a set of books for this school, another set will be required for the next school. Now. it does seem to me that the As sociation ought to pass resolutions of preference for the best series of school books, and recommend their adoption in our public schools, by this means we should soon have a uniformity. feuch a resolution would indicate to book dealers the kind of books to keep for sale. How many days constitute a month? Another vexatious subject which often causes misunderstanding and may, perhaps, be properly decided and made uniform throughout the State by the action of the Association Twenty-six days constitute a month m nearly all employments. I hirteen weeKs constitute one-quarter oi tne year, which would be seventy-eight days. Now, some claim, seventy-two days to constitute a Quarter: others claim sixty-six days : some claim sixty nve daj-s, and others, still, claim trrat sixty days shall constitute a quarter. Now, if you think these are proper subjects to come before the institute, please bring them to notice. I am sir, our most obedient. &c Asa Emerson. St. Deroin, Neb., July 23. 1868.

Then came the great Annual Fair of New England, thato the ' Mechanic's Association, at Lowell, where the highest prize the ONLY GOLD MEDAL awarded to any Family Sewing Machine, was given to THE FLORENC Tit and that too in fair competition with other First Class Machines for five consecutive weeks where it has been exam ined by ttie tiest mechanics in the country and pro nounced the best constructed and most reliable Ma chine, and one that, on account of it simplicity wouid Accomplish More Work la a More Satisfactory Planner Than Any OTHER SEWING MACHINE EVER INVENTED! At the Fair of the Maryland Institute, which closed a four weeks session at Baltimore on tbeii?Ui of November, the superiority of the . FLORENCE was again conSrmed by the committee on Sewing Machines, who unanimously awarded it the UOI.l) MEDAL, the highest prize the Institute confers.

As usual tbedisplay of Sewlug Maclrnes was lame and the competition stroDg, but after s.x , weeks trial tbe friends of the TLORENCE bad the satisfaction of seeing their favoiite again triumphant and fur the second time bearing off tbe highest honors of the American Institute. Below we give an extract from ihe Report of the committee on bewing Machines read at the cluse of the Fair: "The whole number of Sewing Machines on exhi bition is thirteen, of these, tweive are entered for competition. The article bearing the number 730 (FLORENCE SEWING MACHINE) Is decided to be The llent on Exhibition. It mngt ai be stated incidentally.
