TEK LAW-XIXEKS IS HXB&A8IA.
No country should be deprived of the
right of regulating its own affairs of se
lecting its own Legislators, and that too,
from among the residents upon its iwn
soil. But to Nebraska more especially and
specificly lias this power been granted than
to any other section of country which the
Government of the United Stales has or
ganized during the present half century.
Nebraska, the rights of its citizens and
the self-government which they ought to
have, and which by the efforts of good
an J just men we have vainly suppos
ed she bow held, has been alike the theme
of politicians, the song of newpapcrs and
the deceptive bubble of scoundrels.
It is true that Congress has granted us
noble and exalted privileges, and that the
present Administration has given and suf
fered much for the welfare and prosperity
of the inhabitants of Nebraska. Hut by
unforseen and untoward events, the in
tents and purposes of the general gov
ernment have been frustrated. A corrupt
and dishonest man has by a strange dis
pensation of Providence, attained tempor
ally to the Governorship of this Territory
to tho superintendence and guardian
ship of those rights and privileges
which the efforts of such noble men as
Cass and Doi glis had secured to us.
And now let us gLnce hastily at the con
In the beginning he Thomas B. Ccm
mo sought for a place at which he might
locate the Capitol. But did lie seek to
mult that location for the benefit of the
Territory at large ? Did he endeavor to
carry out the provisions of the Organic
Law, by merely convening the first legis
lature, and allowing it to decide upen the
Capitol question, and then acquiesing, as
every just Executive would, with the will
and judgment of the majority ? No, on
the contrary, he sought to make the Capi
tol at such place as woul J most liberally
pander to his own avarice, and meat tenderly
nourish his corruption. lie sought to
make that place the Capitol which would
give the most abject servitude to Lira and
his one where his puffing toadies, yidt
(iiiT LETtra.J in the East, might be eas
iest provided with lots, and his ever-re
membered friends most comfortably set
down to the feast of the loaves and fishes.
At length having; effered himself for
sale both at this place and Nebraska City
having become a member of this Company,
and we know not how many others; and
having -learned that he and his official in
fluence would bring such and such other
merchantable articles in exchange and no
more, he sought a market elsewhere.
His place was at last selected; hard by
Council Bluff City, and upon Sand Bar
T. B. Ccmso found Au interests, and

of large pretentions, are put into the
House of Representatives, for the same
reasons and in the same way. And we
the actual residents of Nebraska we who
Lave been so rivileged to govern our
selves, are to-day, the least st lf-governed
cf tiy people under a Republican Gov
ernment. We are not represented at all,

soUs'.wfT cast for po'ilical jobbers, trick
aiJ knaves. And that they, the ac-j
tual residents, are having no voice, no in
fluence in making the laws under which
they are to live.
The doctrine of popular sovereignty is
a good doctrine, our faith is in it, and we
h id expected that here in its new home, it
would be developed properly, and by its
benign influence, put down the cant and
hypocrisy which Ins ever opposed it. Bu

XBIfi&EY HOT E HI BEET.
We perceive in the last number of the
Ilenntown organ, card purporting to
have been written by Jon A. Sikcle
to. This card states that the Private
Secretary of Tom Custise.did not oflfer him
anything as a bribe to purchase his vote
on the capitol question. We are aware
that w hen the four thousand dollars worth
ef Omaha City scrip was given Mr. Sin.
gleton, he was sagely informed that it was
not for a bribe, and we are also aware that
so simple a remark did not change the
character nor the intent of so liberal a do
nation. Hod some beligerent individual
kicked Mr. Singleton about forty-five rods
pulverize. 1 his nose, and then remarked to
him that il was not intended as an assult,
we do not imagine that he would have taken
the remark of the beligerent customer as
a buna fide fact. And as we think that
in the latter case it would have been ac
tually an assault intended, so we think in
the former, bribery was meditated.
We repeat: Mr. Singlelon va$ offirtd
i donation of Omaha City Scrip, imagin
atively and nominaiiy valued at $4000,
tad we repeat that the intention o.' the do
nors was to corrupt Mr. Singleton, and
ccure his vote, sgunt the wishes of Lis
constituents and the dictates of his own
conscience. We add, after Mr. Singleton
had shown thi. scrip and refused to vote
for Omaha City, he was called from his
seat' in the House of Representatives to
the room of the Acting Governor, by Mr.
Smith, the Private Secretary, and that
he then and th"re by request, gave up to
the donors the intended bribe. It is strange
that ail honest man should have been sj
frightened by knaves as to have done M at ,
or to have subscribed his name to so fee
ble and imbeci'c a paper as the attempted
denial in question. All that we Lave
wtiiten, we staui ready to prove, nov,
to-morrew, or at any lime.

A gentleman from Css county has just
called at our ofii-c, and after having sub
scribed for the Palladium, and rein uked
that " It was ths Ploplc's FairNn, and
should h ive their Supporl"--ri.tered into
conversation upon the subject cf the Cass
co'inty delegation in the Legislature.
We listened with a great dej of interest
to the remarks of our fr ;"inl upon the char
acter and Tee.i'isis of tho people of thai
place, and upon the conduct of their dele
gates in the Lrg'ali.iure. Il cciirrcd to
us, that we bhouM ii'H lilio to stand in
iheir places when their outraged constitu
ents call on tin in to answer for the n-.c made
of he power -Icleiratcd lo L !t. They are
looked upon as havi- sold the interests
of their constituents, anil having put iho
price into their own pockets. Since the
days of Benedict Arnold, nothing has ap
peared indicating traitorsliip more cluarly
than the vote of this delegation ou the
question involving the location of the
Capitol. The vote of these unprincipled
tools turnedthe scale against llic interest
cf Plntlsmouih against the interest of
the whole region of country, on both
sides of the Platte river and effect
ua'.ly crushed the hopes clit rished that
lhal place might be favored with the loca
tion of the Capitol, und postss theadvan
lages which its location won'.! afford.
We should not bo surprised if the ir,'
dignution of that traduced people become
sufficiently awtkened sgainst these misera
bl demagogues, to break out h open evi
dences of contempt, if not in violence.
Those men had promised to he faithful
sentinels over the interests with which
they were entrusted. But instead of
proving fahhful to their constituents, it
appears they chose to sell then, and put
t he avails in iheir own pockets.
The interests of Cuss county were sold
io the friends of Om;ha Ci'j whether
for something or for nothing, it matters not
to the people of Cass county they were
sold, and their power and influence has
gone with it.

The great cry rises up from the people
more furiously calamitous than ever:

does not satisfy our free and independent

lack of employment that they complain.

pretty autiuiiuilwly, in ll.iis linm of -

in this light, docs it not fcppear ir.justic
has been done lo Belleview and Dougla

each neighborhood should be represented.

country organized, that it would be done
honestly, and with a view to represent
