- In accordance with the published call
of the Coutujf Union Central Commit

Waereas, Since the last meeting of

party victory has been obtained in or
Delegate election, nnd a period has been
put to the active military power of the
Slaveholders' Rebellion. . We therefore

tion; 'and for the maintenance and pres
ervation of .' the same we invite and

loyal citizens, . And
t Whereas, The policy of our martyred
President was indicated and developed
by the necessities of the work as it pro-
gvowfaod, wi now attest tho wisdom -wliih
caused him devotedly to work and pa
tiently to wait. And

war which proceeded it, therefcyre
. Resolved, That we - have unqualified
confidence in, and fully endorso the pol
icy and patriotism of Andrew Johnson,
President of the United States, and we

will be done, the laws vindicated, and
the Constitution and the Union preserved.
Resolved, That all the benefits accruing
from the' sacrifice of precious life and
the expenditure of treasure, can only be
secured by elevating to office the devot

office the disloyal.
" Resolved, That we are proud of the
soldiers of Nebraska, who, by years of
patient toil and sacrifice, have aided in
sustaining the national life and honor,
and upholding the Constitution and the
laws, and that they are entitled to the
gratitude, aid and assistance of all lov
ers of the Union, and to imperishable
and undying honors.

Wherxas? We have heard cf the
following report being in circulation, to
wit : that -the petition for the mustering
out of the Nebraska First.rwhich" was
prepared by gbod and Icyal men; and
by thera extensively signed, has been
so changed that the said petition asked
that the said regiment be retained in
the service to fight the Indians, there
fore, Resolvtd, That we, the Union men
of CWssxotrmyJn convention assembled,
believe the said report to be entirely
false, "and gotten up as an electioneer
ing ruse, i vx- i; ' -:"
..Resolved-' That ,thes said regiment,
having fdbght with marked distinction
throughout the great struggle for our
national life, theperiod forrwhich they
enlisted, it becomes the imperative duty
of the General Government to imme
diately muster them out of the service.
On motion, the Convention adjourned.
G. II. BLACK, Ch'm.
. IlsDw Hatha way, Sec'yi
u ocu ticket;
; We present o J the voters 'bt Cass
county the ticket' as .selectedJby :the
convention on. Monday last, with the
firm belief that every man named will
be elected on the tenth of next month.
They are all rnen weir known in this
county, and1 all that is necessary , to se
cure their election by an overwhelming
majority, is for their friends to stand
by them, and see that none of the tricks
for which the .opposition, are so noted
are played during the campaign. Let
every Union man 'consider that the
success of the ticket depends upon his
individual efforts, and we have no fears
as to the result. The Legislative ticket
is composed of intelligent farmers, who
are identified with the interests of this
county, and who know the difference
between a law that will be beneficial to
the mass of the people, and one that
will only benefit the few. The candi
dates for Treasurer and Clerk are men
who have been tried by the people, and
the verdict that will be rendered on the
tenth of next month will be "well dona,
good and faithful servants." When
they took possession of the offices they
now hold, the county was some thou
sands of dollars in debt, and .county
warrants were only worth about thirty
cents on the dollar; but, owing mainly
to their efforts, the county is now almost
entirely free from debt, and warrants
are worth dollar for dollar with green
backs. What better argument can be
produced in favor of their re-election.
The candidate for Sheriff is a man
known to every, citizen of the county,
and one in every way qualified for the
office. Our citizens have, in days past,
had an opportunity of seeing what he
was. when work was to be done, and
we will guarantee. that our farmers can
sleep soundly, even if their stable doors
are'hot barred, when they know that
Andy Taylor has the authority to chase
Horse thieves, v. i
We have not the space to speak sep
arately, at the present time, of all the
candidates, but would say that they are
all good and true men, qualified for the
various offices, and, above all, are true
to the Government. None of them ever
assisted ia mobbing the soldiers of the
Uhion, nor were they ever guilty, of
supporting a ticket; that endorsed : that
kind of procedure. ;
It is said, and that truly, that
"politics makes strange bedfellows."
Twelve months jigo the Copperheads
in this Territory were denouncing every
soldier of the Union as a "Lincoln hire
ling," and such other abusive epithets
as they could find in the vocabulary; at
the" same time one Lieut. Seaton, a
member of the Nebraska First, was
denouncing them, and that with a good
deal of "vim, as traitors, &c. At the
Territorial Snake Show, held in this
city on the 21st inst-, these same Cop
perheads placed this same Lieut. Sea
ton in nomination for the office of Ter
ritorial Auditor. We could expect
nothing else from the Cops., as their
only chance for success is to "honey"
the soldiers, whose utter contempt they
have so well earned; but we are at a
loss - to understand what has wrought
sufficient change in the views of Lieut.
Seaton toward this party as to enable
him to accept (which he has not yet
done) a nomination at their hands.
JK5. We see it stated. in the Ne
braska City J"cws that the resolutions
of the Copperhead convention, held in
this city on Thursday last, were adopt
ed without a dissenting voice. This is
rather tough on Mr. H. D. Johnson,
who, weL understand, bitterly "opposed
the adoption of a portion of them. But
such men as Johnson have no business
to set up their judgment in opposition to
that of the "Grand Commander," and
he should have known that his puny
efforts . toward . effecting any : change
after the worthy "G. C." had pronounc
ed them sound would be of no avail.
Does not Mr. Johnson know by this
time that the ' rule in the Copperhead
ranks is for some to. lead and the others
to follow submissively, without question
ing the superior judgment of those
who are placed in power in the "order

THE REPRESEXTATITE MAW.
In presenting a ticket to the people
for their suffrage, it is customary to
place the representative man of the
party in nomination f or the highest po
sition. The so-called Democracy of
this county, after due consideration and
discussion, have hoisted the name of J.
I. Earley as a candidate for Council
man, for the purpose of contesting the
seat of Hon. J. W. Chapman. In do
ing this, they unqualifiedly proclaim
Mr. Earley "to be the best exponent of
their political views to be found in the
county. Let us, for a moment, glance
at these views, as Let forth by this
champion, and ascertain what are the
real sentiments of the leaders of the
party. Mfcl Earley proclaimed;: in .a
public speech at Nebraska CityV last
fall. that he looked upon Abraham Lin
coln as a tyrant and usurper of power,
and denounced the Union soldiers as
robbers, thieves and murderers; - He
also said publicly that he assisted in the
notorious Baltimore mob, and that he
would yet assist n hanging Abraham
Lincoln. This, and much more of the
same kind of talk, is already known to
most people in Cass county, and there
are plenty of truthful witnesses to these
facts to be found here in Plattsmouth,
should any one have doubts upon the
subject; and yety iff the faee of all this,
the Democracy"' pt Cass county have
seen fit, in their great wisdom, to choose
this man of all others, as their standard
bearer during the present campaign.
'Now, we would ask the honest Dem
ocrat, who professes a love for the
Union, and claims to have been in fa
vor of suppressing the rebellion, do you
endorse this man? Do you endorse the
Democratic doctrines he has enunciated?
Do you endorse the party that chooses
this kind of man for their champion,
and consequently approve the views he
entertains on political questions? We
apprehend there is too much loyalty in
the breasts of many who even yet claim
to be Democrats, to allow them to act
with men who so boldly denounce those
,who have offered their lives as a will
ing sacrifice for the defence of our
Government. Opposition to the war
has been the main, and almost only,
feature" of 'the so-called Democratic
party for the past four years; yet there
are many who have worked with them,
even in this locality, who would scorn
to sanction the dortrirtes of Mr. Earley,
and have too much patriotism and self
respect to. work .: in i conjunction with
those who would place : him as their
We do not think it necessary to en
large upon this subject, for the reason
that the facts in the case are patent to
every voter in Cass county; yet we
would say that every vote polled for the
ticket of which Mr. Earley is the rep
resentative man, is a vote endorsing
the Baltimore mob, where the unarmed
soldiers of the Uflibn were set upon
and killed by a band of ruffians, merely
because they were Union soldiers; and
it is a vote endorsing the assertion that
President ' Lincoln was a tyrant and
usurper of power, and that our soldiers
were, robbers, thieves and murderers.
We. apprehend that too many hearth
stones have been made desolate by
rebel bullets, and too many of our
friends sent home with mutilated limbs
and emaciated forms, for the people of
Cass county to give, their votes toward
sustaining men and views that weie the
very vitality of the rebellion, and as
sisted in prolonging the war which has
taken some member from almost every
fire-side in the land. Think of this,
honest Democrats, and ask yourselves
without prejudice in your minds, wheth
er you can endorse this kind of doctrine.
It is a mystery to us how any
man who has been in the service of the
United States during the late war, can
support, or accept a nomination for of
fice at the hands of the party that has
vilified and abused the soldiers indis
criminately ever since the commence
ment of the rebellion. We can see
but one solution of the mystery, and
that is that such men went into the ser
vice for the purpose of selling tobacco
to their companions . in arms at fifty
cents a chew, or some other similar mo
tive, as did a certain would-be officer
not a hundred miles from . this city.
Spot them, boys in blue.
ST" How is it that the Sham-Democracy
pretend to endorse the admin
istration of Andrew Jobnson, and in
the same breath denounce his represen
tatives, en masse, in ' this part of the
country. Are not the officials in this
Territory men of Mr. Johnson's own
KEx.Governo"r--Tod, of Ohio,
recently declared that the .Democratic
party of Ohio couldn't be trusted. If
it was : an : power, the national debt
would be in danger of repudiation, un
less linked with the rebel debt; national
securities would decline, and justice
would not "be done the soldier or the
soldier's wives and widows; consequent
ly it was duty of every patriot to tand
by the Union party. r ''
A strenuous effort "is being made by
the "failure" party to convince the
soldiers of the Nebraska First thai
some Republican so altered a petition
sent from this place for the purpose of
obtaining their discharge, as to make it
appear that it was for the purpose of
retaining them in the service. Now
this whole thing is so sublimely ridicu
lous, that we are at a loss to know what
to think of it. That these men, who
have cursed the soldiers incessantly for
the past five years, and who now head
their ticket with a man who boasts of
having assisted in the Baltimore mob,
should, become so suddenly the champi
ons of the rights of the soldiers, is cer
tainly beyond our comprehension, and
must awaken ' strange feelings in the
breasts of the men who have, so long
withstood their curses in conjunction
with rebel ballets. But to speak in
plain terms, we feel safe in branding
the thing as an, infamous falsehood,
concocted for electioneering purposes.
Why did not the Copperheads
endorse Andrew Johnson in as strong
terms one year ago as they do now?
Was he ' ot the same "Champion of
Democracy then that he is .now 1 The
reason is plain to us ; they thought at
that time they could be of re ore service
to the rebels by opposing Mr. John
son's policy. Now they see no chance
of being serviceable to them except
they can sUal President Johnson, (char
acteristic of the party,) as they have
failed in their resort to arms, and are
now entirely dependant on his mercy.
EfsF" Developments so .far prove
beyond the shadow of, a doubt that the
policy of the Copperhead party, should
they obtain the power, is to either re
pudiate the National Debt, or make the
payment of the Confederate Debt the
alternative. Do the people of Nebraska
propose to indorse this policy? If they
do, they have only to vote the Copper
head ticket this fait. If not, they can
so express , themselves by voting the
The Copperhead party in this
county have placed themselves square
upon the isue. They do not go around
the bush, but come out boldly, and. place
at the head of their ticket an open and
avowed secessionist one who boasts of
having assisted in mobbing the Union
soldiers in Baltimore, and Las express
ed hjmself desirous of assisting to hang
Abraham Lincoln, but was prevented
by the act of a co-worker in the cause
of treason in the per: on of, J. .Wilkes
357-. Let every Union loving man
watch well the polls on election day.
There will undoubtedly be a large num
ber of illegal votes offered, and it will
be for the Union men of the county to
see that they are not placed in the ballot-box.
There is an oath prescribed
by law. and a set of questions laid
down, which every doubtful man should
be compelled to answer before: his vote
is accepted ; then, if it should be proven
that he swore falsely in any manner,
there is a Territorial , law that will
reach him. .- . .' ,r '
Plattsmouth, Sept. 25ih, '65.
Ma. Editor :
It used to be said that the Democratic
party was a party of seven principles,
viz : The five loaves and the two fiihes;
but recently, in their terror lest the ir
repressible African should distance
them in the race for respectability, they
have added another, and made it a test
of Democratic faith that the Negro
shall not be adjudged to be equal in all
respects to a Copperhead Democrat.
Now, that distinguished Democrat, Ro
ry O'More, long since enunciated thai
there was "Luck in odd numbers," and
for the purpose of securing it, conferred
an extra kis? upon his ladylove in spite
of her protestations and reiterated re
quests that he would "be aisy." Now,
sir, as long as no decent roan has ever
been found to assert that a loyal black
man was not more than equal in value
to his country to a Copperhead traitor,
there seems to be but little chance for
an argument on this eighth but unlucky
But seriously, what is the use of the
Cops, afflicting themselves so much on
this dark question. No one, as far as
heard from, contemplates any change
in the' organic law of this Territory in
regard to suffrage, but on the contrary.
I believe the thinking men of all par
ties are becoming daily more and more
convinced that some scheme of Coloni
zation must and will be devised where
by the Negro can be got out of. the
country, and so cease to be an element
in politics. I believe, sir, that one-half
the time and breath expended annually
on the question of the status of the
Negro in this country, with an amount
of money equal to the expense of one
month of war or one year military
occupation of the South, would satisfac
torily adjust this whole matter,

Settlers vs. Indians.
The Sioux Cky Journal learns tht
the settlers of Union county, Dakota,
in view of the recent troubles caused
by Indians, have notified all the friend
ly Indians living in the county to take
themselves away. If they do so with
in a reasonable time, well and good, if
not, the settlers say there will be no
Indians to take away. This is the only
safe policy for the whites, and perfect
ly justifiable under the circumstances.
gg- An intelligent Democrat in this
city was 7 asked a few days since how
they would manage to do the business
of the different offices, provided their
ticket should , be elected. His reply
was that most of the officers would
have to. appoint deputies. Would it
not.be a good idea to elect men who
are known to be competent officers?
We think the voters will so decide it.
