Tbc County Convention.
A Delegated County Republican
Conventionmeets in this city next Sat
urday, for the purpose of placing in
nomination one Senator and four Rep
resentatives to our next State Legisla
ture. It is of the utmost importance
to the County and tothe State that we
nominate for these positions the five
best men we have in the county. "We
hope the wishes and whims of the
mere politician will be respected only
bo far as they favor the demand of the
people. We, as individual members
of society, as citizens of one of the
foremost counties of the state, owe it
to ourselves, to our good name, to see
that we are represented by men of
ability, standing and character. "We
have the men ; shall we send them
up to make our laws to represent with
intelligence, our civil and. political
wants as a body politic? or are we
to be out ranked in the next legisla
ture by counties, not possessing a tithe
of the wealth, morality and intelligence
of our own ? 2ow is the time, to save
oursejves from this mortification.
Next winter may be the time to send

our indifference of to day. We abide
the action of the people.

The Republican Club of Brown-
ville was addressed on last Thursday
evening by Senator Thayer. The larjre
hall was well filled with an intelligent
The Senator refcred to the prosper
ity of the country, the progress of vast
enterprises, the rapid development of
our great resources as a State, the ex
tensive settlements which have sprung
up in every section of our new State,
and then conclusively demonstrated
all this to be the result of Republican
Legislation and Republican rule.
There are two great parties exsiting
at the present time. The same great
Republican party .that resisted the
extem-ion of slavery into the Territor-
ries, and the same great Democratic par
ty which we had to battle against in
the Presidential campaign of 1800, in
the field at Donaldson, Shilo, Vicks-
burg, Chatanooga and. Richmond,
until they surrendered Appomattox
Courlplouse. These two great parties,
with there leaders, arc now appealing
to the American people for there suff
rages. Call them by what names you
will there they stand one for peace and
the other nledcreu to revolution, war
and eternal distraction.
The Senator charged this great
Democratic party with all the evils
under which the nation Is now suffer
ing. "With commencing the war;
with continuing the war for two years
after the cause was hopeless ; with the
men murdered at New Orleans and at
Ft. Pillow ; with the pain and anguish
of Mothers and Fathers at the loss of
their brave sons ; with the oceans of
blood that was shed; with the im
mense public debt; with the unrecon
structed condition of the Southern
States; with the disorder that prevails
there to day, and with every lamenta
ble evil necessarily flowing from the
late rebellion. And to substantiate
the charges thus made, the Senator
brought forward an array of facts
which were unquestionable and of so
recent occurrence as to be within the
knowledge of all. These fact no
Democratic Orator pretends to deny.
Their only stock in trade is persistent
abuse, villification and missrepresen
tation. Upon this ground the Senator
never treads. The address was an un
answerable argument from first to last
in favor of the Republican policy and
The Democracy to a
tering ! Turn out all Republicans and
The Fair Ground.
We took a drive to the Fair ground,
this week to note the improvements
going on. We founti every thing
prospering finely. We noticed one
good building 25x100, feet on the
ground nearly completed, and others
in course of preparation. The ground
is being cleaned off, the track repaired,
and such other arrangements in course
of prepartion as.will accomodate a vast
number of horses, cattle, hogs, poult
ry, geese, ducks, goats, and the many
other articles the farmers the mechan
ic, thetraider and the manufacture, are
known to take pride in exhibiting.
Word,comes from various portions of
the State, to prepare for this, that and
the other entries, which they are ex
tremely anxious to bring before the
publicas possessing points of excellen
ce not yet known to the general public !
and judging from what we have seen,
and read from those intprested, this
will be the Fair of the season for Neb
raska. Our farmers are preparing to
astonish all that come by showing
what Nebraska can do, when her soil
i3 judiciously managed and cultivated.
We say to the people of the country,
and the State, and other States, come
to the Ncmaha,'county Fair, to be,hcld
in Brownville, September 22d, 23d,
24th, and 25th.
Let every Republican turn, out and
see that every other Republican turns
out, and is Registered.
We have had the pleasure at several
different times this season of visiting
the premises of Col. R. W. Furnas in
this city. To those thathavebeen there
and from the Col's known hospi
tality we judge that thousands have
no mention of ours of what is to be
seen there, would be at all flattering.
It is Mepoint of interest in Brownville
in Nemaha county, if not in the State.
Let the Colonel conduct you over the
grounds, hear him. talk of the infanite
variety of flowers, as he tells you of
the qualities of this and that, and
when, and under what favorable cir
cumstances each blooms, and soon he
will pass you by his choice Fear,
Cherry, Apple, Tlumb, and Peach
trees, exhibiting the fruit if in season,
giving names to each and loading
you down with the most delicious of
fruits, and next to his Concords, Cat
awbas, Isabellas, and the Lord knows
what other varieties, and then to
where his strawberries have been,
his vegetables, his rose potatoes, his
fine hedge, his growing nursery trees
until one comes to the conclusion that
the Colonel is almost a monomaniac,
upon the subject of his garden, but
when you reflect that it is but the
outpouring of a large brain and soul of
one of our best men, that he works un
ceasingly to encourage all public en
terprises, all social and moral reforms,
yo'u will conclude with us that there
are but few R. W. Furnases in the
State and were there more, man would
be wiser, better and truer to the Crea
tor of all things that we now find him.
May the Colonel ever prosper.

Grant and Colfax Club of Aspinwall,

Democratic Club ot Erojvn-
On Thursday of last week, we prin
ted a Telegraphic dispatch that Ver
mont had gone Republican by over
30,000 majority on the largest vote ever
polled in the State, iso sooner nau
the news seen the light, than the
Democratic Club of Brownville drumed
up their followers and began raising
their Sycamore and Blair, pole down
near the Levee. In getting up a little
excitement over poll raising tney
supposed the rank and file would be
too excited to receive the full force of
the voice from Vermont. As the tip
pler resorts to his cups to sooth his
disappointments, so the Democracy of
Brownville seek excitement to quiet
the still small voice beating at the
conscience of every sane loyal man,
demanding that he shall vote for
Grant and Colfax, and thus save the
country from financial and political
ruin. The Democracy of this City are
as artful and crafty as their great
New York leader ; and like him, are
doomed to many a disappointment.
That there has been and may be
now some unkind feelings existing
on the part of some of our readers in
the county toward a few of the people
of Brownville, we will not deny. That
the existence of this feeling operates
prejudicially to the interests of our
thriving city, all admit. This should
not be eo. The interests of the city
and county are identical: and every
effort on the part of all parties should
be made to effect a good understand
ing with each other on all enterprises
touching the interests of the county.
We are therefore pained at the dispo
sition manifested on the part of the
Democrat, to widen the breach, to
arouse the slumbering jealousies, and
consequently drive the trade of the
country from Brownville. This boast
ing or even circulating the expressions
that "Brownville controls the coun
ty," that the county "must knuckle
down to the action of one locality,"
with a view to disturb the growing
good feeling among the citizens of the
county towards Brownville is simply
execrable, come from what source it
may; and we submit to the traiders
and business men of our city whether
they can afford to have their interests
and prospects trifled with in this man

We publish, on our first, page an
article "To conservatives" taken from
the Daily National Republican of
Augusta, Georgia. We hope our Dem
ocratic readers will carefully peruse the
same. Thousands of Democrats are
coming to the same conclusion. They
are about to support Grant not because
they like Republican principles but
because the success of the Republican
Ticket is the only sure road to peace
and prosperity. We hope every Dem
ocrat will read and ponder over the
article refered to, and then support
Grant if you must, under protest.
Every consideration which is supposed
to influence a patriot demands that

Editor Advertiser :
The Democrat of AugustSth outside,
ana or im inside, was nanaea me a
few days ago, in which I was astonished
to find one of our most respectable
citizens ignominiously slandered. In
an editorial, ovei the signature of
"Democrat," in speaking of the Rev.
Mr. Taylor, hecallshimamule-at-her.
So long as the Editor of the Democrat
confines his "blagardism to politicians,
we will conceal our contempt for him
and his vile sheet. But are there to
be no class of persons beyond the
reach of his foul pen? Is submission a
virtue when he travels outside the
slush and mire of politics, and invades
the 'holier callings of life with his
slimy ravings, disgusting and wick
ed inuendoes. Are those called to
preach the gospel to be draged about
in such a sink of Iniquity as your co
temporary pardon the expression
the Brownville Democrat from week
to week sees fit to do without re
dress? No wonder that he hides
his deformity under the once
proud name "Democrat." here
after, Mr. Democrat, if you must emit
slander, putridity and slime from your
editorial pen, pitch in tor some of your
gossiping associates wnose nanus
fit them for such an atmosphere, but
for the sake of humanity do not here
after mention in your columns the
names of peaceful, honorable christian
gentlemen. Remember how precious
a good name and character is. Re
member, we say ; for if we mistake
not you have a wife and a daughter,
not beyond the reach of some insolent
pup like yourself. A word to the wise
is sufficient; but will it be to you?
We observe from, the Blue Valley
Record that 'a contract has been let
for the building of a stone church at
Beatrice, thirty by fifty feet. Mr.
Weston is given great praise for his
efforts in forwarding the enterprise.

The Nemaha County Teachers' As

by the President, Prof. J. M. McKenzie,
ct 2 o'clock. P. M. As few members
were present the programme for the
session was not called up. Remarks
were then entertained on the propriety
of adjourning until after the State
Election ; when, on motion, it was
agreed to .hold our next session on
Friday evening, the 16th, and otf the
17th, day of October next. On mo
tion, Prof. J. M. McKenzie was chosen
to deliver a lecture before the Associ
ation on the evening of the 16th. A
Committee of three consisting of Prof.
McKenzie, Prof. Moore, and Miss M.
Morey, appointed to prepare a pro
gramme and make all neccessary
arrangements for the next session.
On motion, adjourned. Owing to the
politcal issues that are now foremost
in the minds of the people, it was
deemed proper to postpone . the next
session until after the State election ;
when the political ambition of many
will he satisfied, and the public mind
has modarated to such an extent that
thegreat and universal cause of edu
cation may receive that attention
which properly belongs to it. It is
expected that the committee of ar
rangements will prepare and report
at an early day, a programme that
will make the next session one of great
interest, and which will be calculated
to gre.ttly benefit the teachers and
promote the cause of education in

Sir : I fake great pleasure Id stating tbt, aftev
having suffered from Djjpepwj forNiat tit t ten
years, at some periods much more than othirs, I
bave been entirely cured by tbc use of Coe's Dys
pepsia Core.. M y friends know that of late year
my case has been an extreme one. I bad greai af
ferlng from eating any kind of fuod and on an aver
age would vomit about onh-third of my meals, in a
sonr indigestible mass. VTben tbe severe attacks
wonld come, I would lore all strength and beetterly
helpless. Sum of tbe attacks would be so sever
that for days together I would not retain scything
on my stomach, save a little dry toaot and tea. for
years I knew not what it was to tss Ave connertiv
hoars wlttiont Id tease pam. Front tbe time I took
tbe first doeof this nifrlulDe t ceased vomiting,
gradually all soreness passod away, and Mesh and
strength returned, and ever since I have been able
to eat any kind of food set npoa the table. Six
months bave now passed without any symptoms of
tbe return of tbediseaxe. Ky case was considered
by all, even physicians, so marvel loos, that for a
t.me it was feared it might be Dctitioos ; bat I am
noW so well convinced, that I bave been not merrtr
relieved, but permanently cured, that I can coo
