There will be a Grant and Colfax

The meeting will be addressed by
Judge Hewett, Col. Furnas, and the
Editor of the Advertiser. Col. Rich,

De Forest Porter, are already engaged
in other portions of the county. The
ball is evidently rolling.
The Democrats, hereabouts, evi
dently believe "that they that arc
whole need not a physician, but they
that are- sick;" and it is just as evi
dent, from the columns of the Demo
crat, that they indorse the old Alo
pathic practice of administering nau
seating doses. This partially accounts
for their good sense in employing an
Obstrctrician Doctor to operate upon
the Democratic patient.
The State Fair will be held this sea
son at Nebraska City, on the 7th, 8th
and 9th of October. The people of
Nebraska are growing, manufac
turing and raising articles of merit,
sufficient, if on exhibition, to make
the coming State Fair one of interest
and profit to every farmer, mechanic
and tradesman in the State. We hope
that every person in this county will
be on hand with the various articles
set forth in the premium list as far as
they have them for exhibition. Take
the best you have, and then you will
have the satisfaction of knowing if
there is any better article in the State,
and if so, learn how to improve your
We notice in last week's Democrat,
what Is hereabouts termed many
"Broad Axe M allusions, such as are
tinder the ban by all intelligent and
refined society. Doctor, please inform
the public, through the columns of the
Democrat, whether the "Democratic
Council,' ' which holds the strong hand
over the Democrat, were advised upon
the matters to which we allude, and
did they authorize their insertion. If
Unadvised, do they now approve or
condemn the insertion of such ob
scenity. The reason why we ask the question
Is, the public would like to know what
kind of matter is most suitable to
Democratic taste. Please give us a di
rect answer, Doctor. .
The editor of the Democrat, to ex
cuse or justify his. own perversity, is
accustomed to speak of certain promi
nent Republicans as having once been
JJempcrats, as though it was. a re
proach to them. It is probable that
very one so accused realizes that It is
a reproach to their good name.ever to
have borne the name of Democrat, es
pecially sinee the days of Lecompton,
and more especially 6ince the pu
sllanimous no-coercion doctrine of
Buchanan and Seymour became the
principal feature of the party r and
most especially since the time it
adopted the advice of Seymour, when
upon declaring to his friend, Judge
Buggies, " the Montgomery Constitu-
tion of the Confederate States is a bet
ter Constitution than that of the United
Stales," lie said why not avoid all
trouble, by ourselves adopting the
Confederate Constitution," that is, su
percede the Federal by the Rebel Con
federate government, " kicking Lin
coln out and making Davis, Presi
dent;" or what to-day would be equi
valent to kicking Grant out and shov
ing Seymour in; and the very quint
essence of reproach since the aforesaid

The County Convention.
The Republican Central Committee
for Nemaha County, held a meeting
n our office last Saturday, and called
i Delagate County Convention, to
meet at the Court House, in Brown
ville, September 12th, 1SG3, and recom
mended that each precinct meet on
the 20th of August and choose dele
gates to the same.
This Convention, when assembled,
will elect delegates to the Senatorial
District Convention, to be held for
Nemaha, Richardson and Johnson
Counties. It will also nominate one
Senator and four Representatives for
the next Legislature.
In view of these facta, the people of
this county are inquiring what busi
ness will the next Legislature have
before them in which this countv is
particularly interested, and also who
have we best qualified that will go and
see that our interests are well attended
to. Ail agree mat we need a more
a a . .
genorous and perfect school law, a re
vision of our law relating to the sale
of real estate by executors and guar
dians, and the practice of the District
Courts relating thereto, a new general
municipal incorporation act, some gen
eral system in relation to the general
improvements in the State, the dis
posal of public lands, permanent pro
vision for the State Normal School,
and many other important provisions
and checks which naturally arise in
adjusting a new State to the orbit in
which she is to revolve for good or for
ill throughout the coming years of
our national greatness. In view of
the great importance of the interests
which are to be adjusted, settled and
arranged, the necessity of exercising
care and wisdom on the part of the
Convention, becomes apparent to all,
and we know of none more impressed
with this idea of the matter than the
Republican Central Committee who
made the call for Ihe Convention
Their intercourse on last Saturday was
marked by earnestness, forbearance,
and an evident impression of the press
ing necessity for a complete and over
whelming defeat of the Seymour-Blair
Democracy in the coming political
campaign, and in a business like way
they adopt the means to accomplish
the result. Lists of known Republi
can, Democratic Iind doubtful voters
are to be immediately made by the
secretary of the precinct clubs in the
county, and reported to the Chairman
of the County Republican Central
Committee, and all changes are to be
reported weekly. Let every county
in the State adopt a similar plan, and
the vote of the State can be figured
closely at any eriven moment. This
matter should.be reduced to a system,
and let it be done soon ; then labor
can be bestowed exactly where it is
most needed, otherwise we work at
random, not knowing whether eflec
tive or not.

what was now being done in each pre

this conversation we learn that the
vote will be largely increased, one
small township would cast over fifty
additional Republican votes, and in
none would there be a falling on" from
the usual Republican majority.

to the veranda, when the surging

The Hon. J. II. Bennett.
While at Nebraska city last week,
we formed the acquaintance of Hon.
J. B. Bennett, who has been in Wash
ington since January 1st, 18G3, return
ing but a few days since. Mr. Bennett
is one of the JJemocratic candidates
for Senator from Otoe county. He
epoke very warmly of the indefatigable
energy of Mr. Tipton in his efforts to
serve the people of Nebraska, and es
pecially mentioned his untiring eflbrts
to secure land grants for the railroads
running west from Rulo, from Brown
ville, from Nebraska city, and from a
point opposite Sioux city ; that he had
done all that could be done to secure
these grants, but that it wa3 the
settled policy of Congress not to aid
roads under the existing state of the

road policy of this country, having
made the matter a study during the
year, and is, we should judge, a fair-
The Democrats of this city were bad
gering Mr. Leach, and in the " scuffle "
he remarked that " it was a God send
to the Democratic party that the Hon.
S. G. Daily was taken out of this
world;" whereupon the editor of the
Democrat takes a portion of the re
mark for his text, mournfully regret
ing the "pang of pain" the publica
tion of it in the Democrat will give to
hi3 friends. The Doctor evinces the
same feeling for Mr. Daily's friends
that the hyena has forthe'buried dead.
There is nothing sacred from the touch
of his unfeeling pen.
During last week we made our se
cond visit to Nebraska City : in size,
commercial importance, and natural
advantages, it is the second point in
ths State. The situation is on the
Missouri river, about midway of the
State and its population. It is sur
rounded by a rich and thriving settle
ment, and the country for many miles
into the interior is tributary to this
its natural outlet. Until the U. P.
R. R. was commenced and finished
for one hundred miles, Nebraska City
' was the chief freighting post in Ne
braska on the Missouri river, and
most of her size and importance is de
rived from this fact. The railroad
having cut off this resource, her enter
prising merchants quickly changed
this trade for the more permanent one
of the surrounding country. The
transition was a hazardous one for
many, and for a time materially
checked the growth and prosperity of
the city. To-day Nebraska City is
steadily improving; she has very
many elegant residences, churches'
stores,, a good court house, jail, and
school house. We noticed the build
ing of several stores, church edifices
and other buildings. Another large
and commodious ward school build
iner is about to be erected. There are
three weekly papers, one tri-weekly,
and one daily paper printed in Ne
braska City, and we were informed
that another weekly would soon be
started. Colonel Irish stands at the
head of the newspaper men ; he is a
whole souled man, and is ready for
every crood word and work that bids
fair to enlighten, refine and moralize
society or materially benefit Nebraska
Citv or the surrounding country. So
far as our acquaintance extends, per
haps the Hon. A. F. Harvey stands
next. He is one of the oldest of her
citizens ; perhaps has done as much or
more to build up the cause of temper
ance, a system of education, and good
city government, than any other man
in Nebraska City. There are many
other men whose good works praise
them, and who are invaluable in any
community wherein they extend their
influence. We found among her best
citizens, Mr. Powell, Mr. Holmes and
Mr. Gould, and their families, from
Crawford county, Pennsylvania,- for
mer acquaintances of ours. They own
the Nebraska City foundry, which is
one cf the best branches of industry
among the many in Nebraska City.
Besides the outlet which the Missouri
river affords with its daily, lines of
packets and freighting boats, they are
within two miles of the depot on the
C. B. & St. J. R. R., in Iowa. She
expects the Iowa and Missouri
State Line Railroad to cross the river
here, and. the Midland Pacific com
pany are actively engaged in pushing
their road from this point to a Pacific
naisdalc Republican Club.
The Grant ann Colfax club met in
Hillsdale, on Monday evening at 7
o'clock. The President being absent,
Ephriam Cooper was elected President
pro tem. The meeting was large and
enthusiastic, was addressed by Dr.
Blackburn and De Forest Porter, of
Brownville, and Geo. Vandeventer, of
St. Deroin. A vote of thanks were
tendered to 'the speakers. A large
number joined the club.

firmness, made a very favorable im

men that could not be bought, and
this is sometimes complimentary of

ever they so desire, speak with pro-
Jriety and force upon the various sub

questions now agitating the country.
The Representative, Mr. Taffe, is a
member of the important Committees
on Territories and Indian' Affairs. He
ha9 earnestly co-operated with his
colleagues in the other branch of Con
gress on every important measure af
fecting the interests of the State he
has been selected to represent. In
deed, both Senators and Representa
tive have acted as a unit. Experience
adds greatly to the efficiency of a Rep
resentative in Congress, and the first
session of the new member is scarcely
sufficient to acquaint him writh the
mode as to how measures are passed
upon by Congress. Mr. Taffe has just
acquired this important element, no
addition as to his other qualifications
as a Representative are needed, axd it

July 31st, 1SG8,
Young Mens' Christian Associations
are becoming an important instru
ment in the great work of Evangeliza
tion. That the object of the Associa
tion is good, no one can deny, who re
joices in the great work Christianity
is accomplishing, and who has truly
at heart the welfare of his fellow-men.
Their field of labor is one which has
been much neglected, and heretofore,
almost entirely unoccupied, but wher
ever they have been organized their
efforts have been crowned with great
success, and where sufficient aid has
been given to keep the machinery in
The Young Mens' Christian Asso
ciation, of Quincy, Illinois, has been
in operation about one year and a half ;
it has kept a City Missionary in the
field who has been laboring zealously
throughout the city, visiting the sa
loons, and places of resort, to reclaim
the dissipated and votaries of pleasure
Religious services also are held on
the Public Square, and at the Rail
road Depot on each Sabbath ; there is
also a Mission Sabbath School estab
lished at the latter place.
The Association furnishes a free
reading: room, which is supplied with
all the leading papers and journals of
the United States, also several English
The rooms of the Association are on
the second floor of Mr. McFaddon's
new building on Fifth street, iust
south of the Public Square, which is
an exceedingly desirable and conveni
ent location ; probably no association
in the State out of Chicago has as fine
and as elegantly furnished rooms as
the Association of Quincy. A front
room is occupied as the reading room,
and one in the rear for meetings of the
Association ; these rooms, by adjust
ing folding doors which forms the par
tition, can be made into a ball room,
nineteen by eighty-five feet.
At the present time the rooms are
in charge of the Rev. J. Kelly, who,
on account of ill health, has retired
from the labors of the ministry.
Mr. Kelley may always be found at
his post to welcome you and give in
formation or .advice. Come in, you
are welcome; not only welcome, but
you are -especially invited to come.
Come in and take a seat, and you will
find sufficient to entertain you ; make
yourself at home, all is as free as the
air you breathe. If you are waiting
for the train or boat, an hour or a half
hour in the reading rooms of the As
sociation will be well spent. There is
also a daily prayer meeting between
three and lour P. M.
This Association is accessible to all
for membership who are of good moral
character, whether they belong to any
church or not. These associations are
eo-laborers with the church, and
should receive our hearty support;
here all dissatisfaction between the
churches is forgotten, and all become
one in enterprise, one in the great
work of doing good, and one in the
perils, conflicts and victories of the
J. T. Patch.
Friend Church : I notice in a pa
per called the Brownville Democrat,
some strictures on the " Closing Exer
cises of the Normal School," especially
in reference to Thomas J. Majors'
speech. I -wish, as Principal of that
school, to say, I must consider the
charge " of teaching political dogmas,
or peculiar doctrines of any denomina
tion " in the school, unjust, as well
as ungenerous. True, Mr. Majors
chose for his part in the closing exer
cises, to speak on the " Political Par
ties of our Country," but I cannot hold
myself or the school -responsible for
what Mr. Majors said. If the Board
of Education make a rule that no stu
dent 6hall be allowed to speak in pub
lic exercises on political questions, it
will then be my duty to carry it out.
But suppose I had said to Mr. Majors,
" I cannot allow you to speak on a po
litical subject," what would have been
my position before the public? Would
I not then have done what the Demo
crat accuses the school of doing ? It
looks very much like it to me. Last
winter, when some of the students
were allowed to make "secesh"
speeches, no one found any fault then,
I wish simply to say, that I consider
politics a subject open for -discussion,
and every student is at liberty to
think what he pleases, and say what
he pleases on that subject. If he
chooses to make a speech in favor of
" Jeff Davis," for President, he shall
have the privilege ; as far as I am con
cerned, have nothing to say in the
I think, as far as the school is con
cerned, no person who knows its in
ternal workings will dare to say that
there is anything of party, sect or creed
taught or attempted to be taught in it,
and I cannot help feeling that the
"article" in the Democrat was in
tended to place the school in a false
position before the public.
Mr. Majors is a public man, and is
willing to be held responsible for his
own words. We hope, therefore, the
Democrat will do us the justice to say
that we know no distinction of sect,
arty or creed, in the Normal School,
ui -will gladly receive any student
who comes to learn, no matter what
his views are on politics or religion,
and serve him to the best of ourabUity.

It is sjnusing at times to observe the
stores ot the merchants who don't ad
vertise ; to see the anxious proprietors

For the Advertiser,
Mr. Slasher: Sir, you may con
sider yourself challanged to mortal
combat. I am insulted the great
Democratic party is insulted ; A. J ohn
son, the Great, is insulted by your in
sulting letter published in the Adver
tiser of last week, to the effect that
that great man, Doctor Archipellagoe
Samson Holladay, " has no creditable
record." O, for shame! to attempt to
injure the fair fame of such a good
man. Is it no credit to be a minister
of the gospel the Doctor does not
preach now, 'tis true but you know,
Slasher, there is fun on both sides;
besides, it is right and proper that,the
dear people should hear both sides of
the question. So you see that the
Doctor and I endeavor, in our meek
and humble way, to give both sides.
We tell them one day, by snakes, to
flee from the wrath to come ; the next
day we tell them that there is no wrath
coming, thereby creating a healthy
re-action : can't you see it ? You call
the Doctor a smut machine sir, our
breasts heave with righteous indigna
tion as we read the base and slander
ous charge. If there is anything that
the Doctor and I utterly hate, loathe
and despise, it is mule-higgers and
smut. I Never in all the history of the
past has anything emanated from the
pure lips of the Doctor, like smut ex
cept on a great many occasions and
then it was done only for the sake of
the example. Mr. Slasher, apologize
or fight. You say that the Doctjr,
during the rebellion, published a Union
paper, made Union speeches, and was
elected by the Radicals to the Territo
rial Council of course he did; but
can't you take a joke. That was a tre
mendous joke on the Rads. Again,
you tay, the Doctor lies about General
Grant; th .t i3 the unkindest cut of
all: the idea of the Doctor lying he
don't do it; he may be a little economi
cal with the truth, sometimes, but as
for lying, I would as soon believe that
Seymour lied when he said he would
not accept the nomination if it
was unanimously tendered to him, as
to believe that the Doctor would lie.
Beware, Slasher, or you will vex his
righteous indignation. In conclusion,
let me say that the Doctor isthe es
sence of all that is lovely, pure, noble,
Eatriotic, temperate and moral when
e is asleep.
