We publish, oalbe first page of to
. day's paper, the Oration delivered by
Hon T. M. Marquette in ibis city on
the 4ih. Read it, acd let us see if
there is a Union man in Nebraska who
does not endorse it. We understand
there are a few individuals in this com
munity who do not like it, and denounce
the entire Celebration as a partizan af
fair. It may have been a partizan
affair, but if so it was the Union par
ly thai conducted it, for th? reason that
tiiaunionists have no use for the Anni
versary of our National Independence.
They wouid denounce any demonstra
tions of joy on that day, and if they
dared, would denounce the day itself.
13m thanks to the Boys in Blue, and the
great Liberty-loving heart of the
American people, there are but few
of this class of men. The great mass
of the American people honor this

only seeking a pretext to create a dis

the bonds of Union among the States.
But, gentlemen, that game is played
out; and if you don't like to see the peo

will have to find some more disloyal

" A FORTUNATE DISCOVERY.
In the midst of a wholesale system
of Federal appointments of Rebels to
office in the late insurrectionary States,
an Act of Congress, passed in 1S62,
iias been exhumed, which has summa
ry stopped this business. It provides
-that every person elected or appointed
fa any office of honor or profit under
the Government of the United States,
either in the ctvil, military or naval de
partments, shall before entering upou
the duties of his office, and before be
.ing entitled to the salaries or other
emoluments thereof take and subscribe
an oath as follows :
I, , solemnly swear (or
affirm) that I have never voluntarily
borne arms against the United State
since I have been a citizen thereof;
that I have voluntarily given no aid.
countenance, counsel or encourage
i persons encased in armed hostility
thereto; that I have never sought nor
accepted nor attempted to exercise the
functions of any office whatever, under
any rulhority. or pretended authority in
hostility to the United States; that 1
"have no: yielded a voluntary support to
any pretended Government, authority,
power or constitution within the United
States, hostile or inimical thereto.
And I do further swear (or affirm)
that to the best of my knowledge and
ability I will support and defend the
Consutuiion of the United States

Dear Sir: I hap
pened to come across a copy of the Sen-
inel dated Ju?y 6th, a little dirty Cop
perhead paper published in Platts
mouth about the only institution in our
midst that the citizens of Cass county
are heartily ashamed of; but their con
solation is that very few know of their
disgrace. In' this number, strange to
say we found our humble self the sub
ject of four or five different articles;
and, will you believe it? all these grow-
ng out of a speech of about two min
utes in length, in response to a toast on
the Fourth. The first impression, of
course, was to be flattered, and with
self complacency to say: "Well, I must
have made a big speech." But on re
flection that the Sentinel is generally
wrong, and its ecitor troubled with
gass and wlihall given to flattery, we
settled down into the conviction that
our speech was no great thing after all;
and on study:dg closely we are not sure
even that the editor of the Sentinel was
favorably impressed with it, but rather
There must have been a little fire in
it to have so intensely heated up the
copper of the editor. By the way he
writhes and twists, we judge he is hit.
We all know that he is often shot in the
neck, but this time he must be hit in
the gizzard, or some other vital part.
As the hour was late when we made
that notable speech, and many had re
tired from the ground, it may be due to
myself, my friends, and the public gen
erally, to know what I did and what
I did not say.
1. I did say that the negro ought
to be allowed to vote, that he had fairly
won his freedom on the battle field;
that he had nobly fought for and help
ed to perpetuate the life of the nation ,
that as he was now a free, home born
American ci'izen, und had offered his
lite for the cherished institutions of our
country, he ought to be permitted to
uphold and perpetuate them, and de
fend himself, by the ballot, as he had
done it by the bullet aud the bayonet;
especially in the southern States, where
without this right their former rebel
masters, Enraged by disappointment
and defeat, especially bydefeat in con
flict with their former slaves, they will
make their condition more intolerable
than it was before.
2. We did say that the ballot was as
safe in the hands of the uegro as in the
hands of the ignorant Catholic Irish, as
they were really rubjf-cts of a foreign
Prince, and ruled and led by their
priests; and that their influence had
been against us in this great struggle,
with honorable exceptions, which I was
careful to mention in my speech.
3. I did say that our institutions
were as safe, or safer, at the ballot-box,
n the hands of the negro as in the
hands of rebels and traitors, north or
south; for the rebels were as much
rebels to day, at heart, a ever.
4. I did say that at the ballot-box I
preferred a black skin and white heart
to a white skin with a black heart.
What we did not say :
1. I did not mention the Germans ;
for I, as well as others, know that they
have not been behind in patriotism or
bravery, to our home born citizens.
2. I did not mention the Frenchman.
3. I did not mention the English
4. I did not use the word foreigner
at all. I referred to but one class, and
made exceptions in that. Now, the
assertion of the Sentinel on this matter
is ajlat, unmittigated, wanton lie!
5. I said nothing about negro equal
ity, except as regards the right to vote.
I do not think that the negro is the
equal of any of the white races. I do
not think that the Cathol.c Irish are
equal to the German?; but that is no
reason why the Irishman should not
vote. In this regard we say, with the
Declaration, "All men are created
Are those who are making so much
ado about negro equality, really afraid
that unless they hedge the negro about
with disabilities, he is to rise above
them? Really, there is some danger,
we doubt not; for morally and intel
lectually, we imagine it would take
about a thousand Jike the editor of the
Sentinel to equal one Fred. Douglass,
with the prejudice and disability of law
against him. What might it be if the
restrictions of law were taken away,
Self preservation is the first law of life.
The Sentinel is very nervous about
politics on the Fourth of Julj. Really,
we svppoaed that the glorious 4th, oar
Ntt!one birtb-dar, "is a po!it:o! daj;
a day devoted to the men od their polit
ical measures which loads cs a nation.
What, ignore Washington, and Jefferson
and Adams, and that glorious political
document, the Declaration of Independ
ence? "What, ignore oar political his
tory on the 4th of July? That would
make the 4th as flat as thti Sentinel. It
claims to have ignored politics, aud to
stand neutral. But we judge it is as
hard for a set of copperhead editors to
run a paper without politics as it would
be to celebrate the fourth and ignore
politics. The fact is, they will come out
as they did in the great oration of the
Seninel's devil on that same day. '
Shall we, at this time, in oelebrating
the 4th, ignore Lincoln, Seward, Grant,
Sherman and Seigel, and our political
history makers, theBoys in Blue? Cop
pe. heads do not like these politics.
Why? For this reason: They have op
posed those men and their measures
which have saved our beloved nation.
Oh! spare these fellows from politics on
the 4th and all other days.
Wick these remarks we will dismiss the
Sentinel for the present, begging the par
don of the community for stooping to
reply to these base falsehoods and slan
ders. I rarely kill a Skunk, yet when
they come about my chicken coop, I
sometimes feel compelled to do a dirty
My excuse for answering this matter is
that I was referred to by name as a mem
ber of the council, a representative of
the people. It is their right to know my
I thought what I said, and said what I
thought without fear or favour, as I al
ways have done and shall continue to do.
I consider the question of negro suffrage
one of the leading questions of the day,
and we cannot ignore it, it will come up.
I go in for free speech on th's and all
other issues that arise.
As for these sentiments I have never
taken them back yet. .
As for courage I mako no boast. I let
the petticoat Chivalry do all the boast
ing. Fighting is not my forte; what I
might do when cornered in self defence,
1 cannot tell. I know the Irish Catho
lics are great on a fight and a row when
they get drunk, which of course is not
The Scripture rule, we know is "An
swer not a fool according to his folly,"
but there is another rule, an exception to
to the first, which ajb, ' Answer a fool

Pardon us if we refer to one other

strongly on negro equality. We imagine

County will meet the Iosm with becoming

such dirty devils, for they are scarce.

The Orderly Conduct of our
The New York Herald says
Over a hundred and twenty thous
and soldiers have been disbanded
within three weeks, and eighty thou
sand have, since the first of June,
passed over the railroads from Wash
ington. But a short time ago the
thought of this disbandment. and of
the return of these soldiers to their
Northern homes, filled many persons
wiih alarm. It was feared that these
men, used to the rough life of camp,
habituated to ihe use of deadly weap
ons aud to scenes of blood, would be
a wild and reckless element iu our so
ciety; that our streets would teem
with scenes of violence, and ihat mur
ders and robberies would become
frightfully frequent. There were
feats justified to some extent by the
experience of other countries that had
suddenly disbanded large armies. Bit
our experience has been very uiilerent
from that of any other country in this
respect, and all these fears have proved
entirely groundless. It would not be
possible to bring fnto our cities any oth
er equally large number of men with
so few scenes of violence, or so little
disturbance of public order as has been
occasioned by these soldiers.
We see ihe soldiers everywhere.
They march up our streets and slack
arms, aud indulge in a thousand antics
of delight. They scaiter out in all di
rections and buy. They are honest,
hardy fellows, ragged enough and hap
py "as troutiets in a pool, lhey are
bronzed with the suns of fifty Auzter
litzes. They have more vim and hu
mor than you can find in all the thea
tres the winter thiough, but withal they
are the most orderly of men. Here
and there one under the influence of
rum may be a liule noisy and pugna
cious, but even this is not so common
as one might naturally expect it; and
its rarity calls attention only the more
strongly to the vast number of the re
turned soldiers that do not outrage pub
lic propriety even in that way. The
vast majority of these returned soldiers
are intent only on going home, seeing
their families and friends, and finding
once more the places in society that
lhey left to serve their country.
THE STATE QUESTION'.
We are glad to note thai an intense
interest is being manifested in the mat
ter of Colorado's organization as a
State. '1 hose who were most virulent
in their opposition to this measnre on
its previous canvass, are getting the
scales off" their eyes and are beginning
to see their mistake. The argument
of increased taxation sinks into utter
insignificance, when compared with the
heavy increased price of all living ne
cessities occasioned by the bloody em
bargo laid upon us by hostile Indians
cutting off our lines of commerce. An
embargo that in all probability might
have been prevented, bad Colorado a
representation of her own choosing
in the National Congress, at its last ses
sion. We are willing however, to let
the past be buried in this matter, and
work unitedly for this crowning good to
our Territory. The narrowuess of
mind and partisan spirit tb.it will be
sufficient authority for some to go over
to-the enemy in this cause, after ad
mining that it will be important to our
interests to eernre a representation m
the next . Congress, we hope will not
be found amoug us. In so far as the
question of Slate organization is con
cerned, we shall be willing to worlrl
with any and all, to secure us early
adoption. But no one is to suppoe for
a moment that in this promise we mean
(o imply that we will work or vo e for a
Copperhead, under any circumstances.
We are speaking of the Siaie question
on its own merits, and stand pi dgt-d
for it, but have sea and suffered too
much to ever knowingly cast a vote or
lend a voice, save in condemnation of
those Northern peace-sneaks who fa
vored our Union's enemies. For the
mifguided masses of the South, as v
have formerly stated, we entertain fetl
insrsofpity and forgiveness, but no
language that the human tongue can
speak, is capable of expressing our in
dignation and abhorrence of traitors in
the North. Denver jYews.
