COME OXE, COME A EE
Numerous letters are being; received
by our citizens, asking information in
regard to this part of the world, with a
iew to settling here if the country
i-rits. To all such enquirers we would
say, come on ! This Territoiy cannot
tail to please you, unless, indeed, you
will not be pleased wr.h anything.
Here you have as gcoJ a climate, all
things considered, as can be found in
any part of the world; end as regards
toil, we defy any part of the United
States to show better. Here we are
not confined to any particular class of
products, as are some localities; and in
fact any kind cf crop yoa may deiire
to cultivate, can be produced in abun
dance, and with as little Liber as at any
place in the United States. Fruit of
ihe various kinds does well here; and,
although our Territory is yet young,
large quantities of apples, peaches,
plums, cherries, grapes, &.c, are grown
in abundance, and ar3 found to do
as well as in the East.
As regards business facilities, Ne
braska, and particularly this portion of
it, offers the best inducements of any
part of the United Slates. H;re you
need not follow in the old beaten track,
as there is a demand for all kinds of
legitimate business, and if you have a
turn of mind to establish some new and
novel business, here is the Lest place
in the world lo make it successful.
This is a progressive country, and now
is the time to get a "foot hold." It
will be but a short time before the
"iron horse"' wi'l be running at light
ning speed across oui broad and fertile-prairies,
transporting our wheat,
corn, &.c, to the far West, and bring
ing in return the yellow ore that is
found in such vast quantities in '.Le
Mountain regions between here and
the Pacific ccast. Nature Las made
the Missouri river the las? for all this
trade with the West, and those who
pet thoroughly established here in ad
vance, arp the cues that will reap the
harvest at the proper time.
The item cf ti;nber Las been consid
ered by some, more particularly those
who have lived in the heavy timbered
regions of the East, to be something of
a drawback to the prosperity of this
country; but is estimated that there is
considerably more timber in the Terri
tory now than there was ten years ago,
notwithstanding the constant drain up
n it for fencing, fuel, building,
Coal has been known to exist in the
Territory since its first settlement, but
our citizens have heretofore lack'd mon
ey and enterprise to determine to what
extent; but of late they are awakening
to tLe importance of a tlurojgh inves
tigation of the matter, and it is now
demonstrated beyond doubt that there
are extensive deposits of coal here,
and Companies are being formed in
different parts of the Territory for the
purpose of procuring it. In the South
ern portion of the Territory it has been
procured inconsiderable quantities; and
new veins are being discovered to the
west of us, which promise fair to be
very productive. This will entirely
quiet the timber question; for if the
amount of timber has increased here
tofore without coal, it will certainly not
be diminished with coal and the facili
ties which railroads will give for pro
curing lumber frcm the pine regions.
FoaT Rice Attacked by Indians.
A letter in the Sioux City Register
gives an account of an attack on Fort
Rice on the 23th ult. The Indians ap
peared iu front of the fort in strong
force, but were driven off. One sol
dier mas killed., and two wounded
ESjA movement is on foot (by col
ored men) to purchase the Charleston

THE SOLDIERS AND THE DE
MOCRACY. It must be particularly refreshing to
the war-worn veterans, who have faced
death at the cannou's mou'a on a hun
dred battle fields, to hear the "blarn
ey of the men who a short f ime since
were denouncing them for everything
they could think of that was mean and
despicable. It won't go down, howev
er. These men who hive offered
their lives as a sacrifice upon the altar
of their country have cot forgotten
neither are they likely to forgei the
cowardly enemy who have feughttheni
in the rear for the past four years.
ineynave not rorgoucu that the war
was prolonged, and consequently large
numbers of ineir friends and compan
ions, in arms were killed, by the en
couragement these would-be friends of
theirs gave to their co-workers in re
bellion those who Lad the "pluck" to
tuke up arms and fight for the doctrines
they advocated. They have not for
gotten that these same individuals, a
short time ago, were in the habit of
speaking of them as "Lincoln hire
lings," ''Hessians," "Murderers of the
true Union men of Maryland," and ev
ery other eprobrious epithet which
they could think of. Even here iu
Nebraska, we hear'ihese men speaking
of the soldiers as though they Lad al
ways been their bosom friends; and
why is it? For no other reasoa than
that they are anxious to get into power;
and iii order to do so they must, by
some means, create dissatisfaction in
the Union racks. In order to do this
they have chosen the returning soldiers
as their material to work upon. But.
if we are not "muchly" mistaken, they
will find they have "caught a tartar."
Better have taken hold of any other
class of community than the men who
have fit the stabs in the dark which
they have been dealing to the Union
cause. It is uot the class of Democrats
who stood by the Hag of their country
in the hour of need (of whom there
are many) that are engaged .in this
game. These men almost invariably
denounce the actions of those who are
now endeavoring to "reconstruct" the
defunct party on the basis of State Sov
ereignty. They see the tendency of
the doctrine, and do not propose to lend
their aid to any such treasonable
scheme It is a fact, patent to every
one,tha:the present leaders of the
Democratic party are men who have
never let pass an opportunity to retard
the progress of the war, and have in
variably assisted the rebels with all
the means in their power. Now that
the light in the field is over, thy are
using ail the arts and wiles of which
they are masters to try and get sutfi
cient power to control thejjovernrnent
iu a civil capacity, iu order that they
can restore their rightful masters in
the South to their former stations in
the Government. We find that in
Virginia, at the late elections, the can
didates ran upon the issue of secession
and anti-secession the secession can
didates being elected by large majori
ties. This shows the tendency of the
fight with the ballot, and we uuift meet
it boldly, as we have don? in the field.
We can only expect the Copperhead
party in the North, and even in Ne
braska, to play second fiddle for the Lig
reL.-is of the South, as they have al
ways done. Let the Union men, sol
diers and all, stand firmly Lv the cause,
and all will yet no well.
OHIO DEMOCRATIC COXVEX
TIO.V. The Democratic State Convention of
Ohio met at Columbus on Saturday last,
and nominated George W. Morgan
for Governor and Win. Long for Lieut.
Governor; I. Van Trump and Thos.
M. Key for Supreme Judges. The
resolutions adopted maintain the doc
trine of Slate Rights, and that the
Southern States are entitled to their
due representation in Congress. They
denounce all effort to confer the right
of suffrage on the negro, and compli
ment the soldiers on their valor and
fortitude probably in putting down the
rebellion, notwithstanding their endeav
ors to uphold it, and in making the war
a success after they had declared it a
"failure" and endeavored to make it so.
They denounce the actions of the mili
tary authorities in protecting the Union
voters of the South at the lrte elections,
and declare them revolutionary viola
tions of the Constitution. It is sufficient
to Mate, however, the concern was run
by Vallandigham, Pugh & Co., and it
is easy telling what action would be
taken by this class of men. Their
former course is still fresh in the minds
of every true American.
g-SfThe Evansville Journal tells
of a new kind of coercion which the
colored people of Kentucky, opposite
Newberg, Indiana, practiced upon their
masters, on election day. Ther threat
ened to leave, if their masters or em
ployers would not vote the straight-out
Union ticket; and as the "Conservative
chaps" would not comply, the negroes
were as good as their word, and left
them to hoe their own corn and pota
toes, and sucker their own tobacco. -
J. P. Finley, editor of the Leon
(Iowa) .Veirs, who was n member of
the Fourth Iowa Infantry, and lost an
arm at Tea Ridge, thus speaks of the
so-called "Soldiers' Contention" called
by Tom Claggett of the Keokuk Con
"Clagpett, the Copperhead editor of
the Keokuk Constitution, has called
a 'Soldiers Convention' 10 meet at Des
Moines on the 23d inst. This is no
doubt another part of the plan of the
Cop to break down the organization
of the Union party, and carry the State
over to the interest of the rebels. But
it won't work. We had the honor of
serving our country, and losing our
right arm in defence of the. old flag,
but we cannot think of affiliating with
those of the Clagfrett. Clay Dean, and
Mahony stripe, who are so very care
ful of the soldier's right?, but who two
years afjo belonged to the fire-in-ihe-rear
party, and denounced the soldiers
as "hmdintrs, IIesianv, hed-hounds.
&c" We can't go that much, not that
we can see, no."
-STA soldier who was present at a
Copperhead meeting in Davis county,
Iowa, a few days since, moved that the
rneeiin? resolve itself into a deba'ing
society, and that they proceed to dis
cuss tht followin? question: "Does a
long snake suffer more acute pain
while drawing itself through the fire,
than a short one ?' The meeting re
fused to "resolved."
ESSThe Constitutional Convention
of Colorado Territory has appointed
the 19th of September, as the day for
an election, to decide whether the Con
stitution shall be adopted or rejected.
f5SrConcerniijg the facility with
which the colored race acquire the ru
diments of an education, the Indiana
Journal says :
We hear it slated by those who have
an acquaintance with negro regiments,
that almost all the soldiers have learned
to read and write. That on the first
pay day, about all mad their marns,
but within a year about all signed their
names. Ail well-conducted negro reg
iments have, as a part of their disci
pline, exercises in spelling, reading and
writing, so that the army has become
to them, in fact, a school.
Mr. Carpenter, in the last number of
the Independent, tells the following
gocd s-tory of the manner in which Mr.
Lincoln regarded the Wade and Davis
manift slo :
When the President Lad thought
profoundly, however, upon certain
measures, and fell sore of his ground,
criticism, ither public or private, did
not disturb him. Last year, upon the
appearance of what was known as the
'Wade and Davis manifesto." an inti
mete friend and supporter, who was
very indignant that such a liocmient
should have been put forth just pre
vious lo the Presidential election, took
occasion to animadvert very severely
upon the course that prompted it. ' It
is not worth fretting about." said the
Pres'den; "it reminds me of an old
acquaintance who, having a son of t
scientific turn, bought him a microscope.
The boy went around experimenting
with his flaas upon everything that
came in his way. One day, at the
dinner table, his faiher look up a piece
of cheee. ' Dont eat th it, father,' said
the boy; 'it is full of wrigglers. 'My
son,' repiied the old gentleman, taking
at the same time a huge bite; 'let 'em
wrigjle; I can stand it if they can.' "
- Emigration to the Far West.
During the sixteen days ending June
30, 2 2S7 emigrants pa-sed Fort Lara
mie Nebraska, bound West, with near
ly eighteen hundred l ead of cattle.
Nearly as "Urge a number passed du
ring tha fourteen days ending June
14; and during the month of May 5,
000 teams and 40 000 head of stock
passed fur the West. If emigration
continues at this rate, it will not take
many years to erect States on the
broad prairies of the far West, and to
build cities on the slopes of the Rocky
Mountains. These large bodies of
emigrants have, with a single excep
tion, passed "safely through an intense
ly hostile Indian country, escorted by
the officsrs and soldiers oi Gen. Con
nor's Command. Ex.
Virginians Sncbbed. The tele
graph says that a lot ol Virginia Reb
els appeared at the White House in
Washington a day or two since, and
when one of them boasted very pomp
ously that they were from Richmond,
the President remarked that he saw no
occasion for pride in that fact, and then
turned his back on the discomfited Vir
giaia Reb. We guess old Andy will
get waked up by and by, bo that the
Cops will not be as eager to endorse
his administration as some of ihem
seem to be just now.
grSBy virtue of a proclamation of
the President, of March lOtb, issued
in conformity to a law of Congress, da
ted March 3d, 1S63, all persons duly

Struck by Lightning. 'Twould
seem the Heavens have caught the
'war spirit,' from the number of thun
derbolts being hurled at the earth this
season. Mr. Mollman's store house at
Arago was struck by one of these bolls
on Tuesday, the loth inst. The cur
rent of electricity passed through the
roof near the &tove flue through th"
upper floor to an iron h-iok in the joist,
upon which wns suspended a number of
tiuop-skirts, showed its respect for la
dies by traveling the wires, melting the
same and returning to the upper story,
running along the weather-boardiuu
to the gable end, which it struck with
great force, making a hole of four
boards the whole width of the build
ing. This opening was made only
a tew inches above the faces of two
young men who were sleeping near
the window, without inflicting the least
injury upon either. Ilulo liegister.
Crime. Poisoning, shooting, stab
ting, revenge, insanity and suicide
seem to have taken possession of the
stage, and are acting their bloody trail
edy from on end of the 1 tnd to the
other. In one issue of a New York
contemporary we find twelve horrible
account.- of deaths by violence. A son
poisons his mother; a woman stabs the
parnmour of her husband; a man shoot-,
iiis wife; a lunatic firs into a railway
train and kills an infant in thj nurse's
arms; a disappointed lover drowns him
self; a ruflian murders two lmle chil
dren and buries them in a coalpit, and
a girl lakes arsenic and throws away
her life to save her character. It is
very sad, this array of crime the re
sult, perhaps, of war, but most likely
of the incougruous organization of soci
eties iu our great cities.
Gen. Grant Speaketii. General
Grant and suite arrived in Detroit on
Sunday morning, on which day and oc
casion, according to the Fiee Press, the
city "wore her sweetest smiles." In
the evening a large crowd of people
congregated about the hotel where the
General was stopping and cheered till
they were hoarse. He finally appear
ed on the balcony, when a couple of
"Hon." orators seized the opportunity
to inflict long speeches but one at a
time, however. When the two hon.
gents had doae. loud cries went up for
a ''speech from Gen Grant!" and was
at length induced to throw aside his
habitual taciturnity and deliver an ad
dress. It was terse, "short, sharp and
decisive," and was received with every
demonstration of satisfaction by those
who calmly listened to the end. We
are indebted to the Free Press, which
paper had a reporter on the grounu, for
a copy of the address, which was as
folloA-s: "Gentlemen I bid you all
