The Territorial Union Convention
which met in this city yesterday pass
ed off with the utmost unanimity, and
the candidates, whose names appear
at the head of our columns, were uoin-
nated without a dissentincr voice. A
number of persons were present from j
different parts of ihe Territory besides
the members of ihe convention, all of
whom expressed their approbation of
the nominations made. Mr Kountz,
the nominee for Territorial Treasurer,
is too well known by our people to need
uny particular mention by us, and al'
ibat is necessary is tosiy that no better
man for the position can be found in the
Territory. Mr. Gillespie has been a
resident of the Territory since its first
settlement, and has been in the service
of the country since the outbreak of ihe
rebellion. He has acted in the Quar
termasters Department for a consider
able length of time, and has proven him
self not only a reliable accountant, but
a strictly honest man, and one in every
way qualified for the position of Audi
tor and School Commissioner
JS3The sham-Democracy of this
county are "willing" somewhat from
their first proposition. The great
"mogul" of the party here has left, and
they are at a loss to know exactly bow
to proceed. They first started out with
the proposi ion that "negroes were no
equal," but finding so few of them in
the county (the County Committee hav
ing failed to manufacture the requisite
number) they have almost come to the
conclusion to abandon that doctrine.
They had'better recall their leader,
else they will get things so badly tan
gled that no one will be able to tel'
where they stand. We. would suggest
to them that they could make a belter
fight if they would assume tbe ground
hat the Pawnees and Otoes are not on
an "equality;" or that Old Rye was
superior to Lager.
2rThe Supreme Cour: of WLsd
conin have decided that the laws cf
Congress requiring stamps to legal
processes, in the beginning or other
stages of the suit, is unconstitutional,
and therefore void, and the stamps on
logal paper not necessary. The
ground of the decision is that the impo
sition of a tax upon any proceedings
in a State Court is an invasion of the
right to regulate proceedings in its
court; that if Congress can tax these
proceedings at all, it can lay a lax that
will practically amount to a prohibition,
and thus legislate the State Court out
The so-called Democratic party, as
is well known, has bad opposition to
the war for their platform of principles
for the last four years. They have
made it a point to heap all the vituper
ation at their command upon the tol.
diers who were battling for the salva
tion of the country, and have invariably
denounced every supporter of the war
policy as being in favor cf placing the
negroes upon a social equality with the
whites. The war has ceased, and that
gloriously for those who were in favor
of preserving the Uuion, notwithstand
ing this sham-Democracy declared it
"a failure" (it was a failure to them)
and now, if they would retain a par
ty organization, they must rake up some
new isue. They have been vainly cas
ting about for some vulnerable point at
which to attack the Union forces
through the medium of the ballot box,
and have been unable to find anything
in the principles of our party upou
which they dared to risk an issue,
The time drew nigh whn they must
choose their ground or acknowledge
themselves without power to attempt a
contest. The case was urgent, and
delay dangerous: and the Democracy
here in Nebraska, hearing that some
prominent men in the Union party
(among others Andrew Johnson) fa
vored the policy of giving the negroes
in the South the elective franchise,
concluded that they would try and force
this issue upon the people here. This
only shows the strait they are in, as
there is no one to oppose them. e
believe that they endorse the policy of
Andrew Johnson, that this question of
franchise is to be determined by the
States themselves, and consequently we
could have no influence over it only so
far as our own Territory is concerned
There is probabiy not more than two
dozen negroes in the entire Territory
and therefore no cause for any ac-
tion to be taken in regard to them, even
were there persons so disposed. We
propose to go in for men and measures
that will operate to the benefit of our
present inhabitants, and leave the
nerrra nuestion entirely wilh the
Copperheads until such time as it
found necessary for the welfare of the
Territory to take some action in regard
to them. Let no Union man be de
ceived by their outcry; remember that
1 thev Iiavo no real issue upon which
they dare to face us, and are driven
to ihi exp uient.
QWe notice quite a large number
of former Democrats in ihts locality
who do not appear to be very "muchly"
inclined to follow the men who have
assumed the leadership of ihe party. -They
would like to vote a Democratic
ticket, but are unable to stomach the
thing in its present shape. They are
men of too much sense to be "gulled"
'mo the the support of men or meat
ures that cannot bring anything forward
to recommend them men who dispise
a party based soldi upon haired to the
negro, and one that is driven to the
wall for a pretext to oppose the men
who are in favor of supporting the Un-
gsjgr Almost every boat that comes
up the river leaves a large number of
passengers at this place. People in
the East are beginning to see the ad
vantages to be obtained by .an early
settlement in the West, and particular
ly at this place. There is probably no
other town on the river that offers the
inducements lo the mechanic or business
man that Plattsmouth does. We are
just commencing the advance, and men
who have sufficient sagacity to judge
correctly of the future of this country
cannot fail to see that the location o
this place, alone, is sufficient to insure
it as the great depot for the western
trade, notwithstanding that in the early
settlement of the country monejed in
terests shoved other towns ahead of us
It has almost invariably been the case,
in country similarly situated to this
that some point that attracted but Utile
attention at first, has eventually become
the large city; and the whole course of
business transactions tends to convince
the far-seeing man that Flattsmouth is
ihe inevitable point fur the great city
on the Missouri River.
SfThe "Graud Commander" is
wonderfully exorcised because the
Union men of Nebraska won t pay any
attention to his assertions about enfran
chising the negro. His only hope was
to create some dissatisfaction in the
Union ranks, and by lacking the disaf
fected onto the solid vote of the "or
der" they wou'd be able to carry the
dty. and hoist into power some sound
anJ reliable Knight. If this could be
successfully done, tho 'G. C might
conclude to run for Congress again
next fail; but alas ! "the best laid plans
of men and mice.

LETTER TROM SEC. flAItlaAlV.
Department of the Intehior, )
Washington, D. O., Aug. 26, '65.
Hon. Ceo. B. Edmonds :
Dear Sir I have just received
your letter of the 21st inst., stating
among other things, that tbe Union
btate Coavention of Iowa has adopted
ns a plank in its platform a recommen
dation m favor of negro suffrage; the
Copperhead Convention has endorsed
President Johnson s policy for the re
organization of States, assuming it to
be in oppo nion lo negro suffrage; that
this is, in your opinion, the i?sue joined
between the two parties in Iowa; that
heretofore the Union party has derived
valuable aid from me in support of its
principles; that you regret, however, to
observe a newspaper report of a speech
recently made by ine, which puces me.
as you think, in antagonism with i's
present principles and policy, which
gives you pain.
In reply, I have to say, that if your
opionion was well founded, it would be
a cause of greater pain to ine, than to
yourself; but, I beg lave respectfully
to state, that you misapprehend the po
sition of President Johnson, and my
own, as well as that ot the Union party
at large. The real question at issue,
in a national point of view, is not
whether negroes shall be permitted to
vote, but whether they shall derive
that authority from the Nat.onal Gov
ernment, or from ihe State Govern
President Johnson maintains the doc-
triue, that the Constitution of the Uni
ted States does not confer on the
Federal Government the right to inter
fere, primarily with the qiesiion of
suffrage in any State of the Union;
that the question may arise and prop
erly be decided by Congress, when
Senators and members present them
selves for admission to seats in that
body, under the clause of the Constitu
iio: which makes each House the ex
elusive judge of the qualifications and
elections of members ; and that other
clause of the Constitution of the United
States, which provides that -'the United
States shall gurrantee to every Stale in
the Union a Republican form of Gov
eminent." I infer that if any State
should adopt a law on the subject of
suffrage, which would clearly show the
State Government to be other than re
publican, it would be the duty of Con
uress to reject applicants for seats; and
to adopt whatever legislative remedies
would in their judgment be necessary
to carry out the guaranties of the Con
stitution. That the State of Iowa may take
steps lo extend the right of suffrage, is
not, as it seems to me in conflict with
this policy, and, consequently, those
who support the policy of the President
on this subject, are not in antagonism
with the platform of the Union party of
The Union party of that State pro
pose that the Suite shall modify its own
Constitution, so as to include its electors,
person tvhrthave not, undr its present
provisions, the right to vote. I his, as
President Johnson maintains a Siatt-
inay do, bin thai the National Govern
ment would have no right to requ re
owa, or any other State, to modify its
own Constitution, on this or any other
sul ject. when not in conflict with the
Constitution of the U. States.
If I should be in Iowa when that
question is submitted to the people, it
t shall be so submitted by the Legisla
ture, I would vote to extend ihe right to
al! classess of persons possessing ihe
require intelligence ar.d patriotism to
be entrusted with a participation in the
management of public affair?-, State or
National, without regard to their nation
ality, as I do not believe that the liberty
of sny class of people can be considered
safe, who are to be permanently de
prived of ihe exerti-e of this right.
I do nol disg'nse these opinions; you
may thereforH make what use of this
letter you may deem proper.
I have the honor to be,
Your ob'i serv't.

interfered, and prevented any serious
breach of the peace. It would really

tion" iv Georgia. Howell Cobb,
who was in Augus'a recently, express
ed an earned desire to see Georgia
resume her former position in ihe Un
ion. Slavery, he said, could be resus

to submit promptly and willingly to the
United States authorities. Governor
Brown was lately in Atlanta entirely
recovered trom his illness. He regar
ded the question of secession settled
and any further agitation on that and
kindred topics should be studiously
avoided. He thinks it would be well
for the Convention to declare tlavery
