Tllf: CAPITAL Kllr.STIO.'V.
Tht Territorial papers are, to some
extent, in a quandary as la where the
Capital shall ho Ioca'.ed if. we come in
as a Stn.4. The Press thinks it should
go to Salt Crpelf that being the mo?t
iM-nioitifHT nrttr.n tf r,rf-rr.rf S'ajf
I v ' " . J . . . - . . - . , W - . ..
while the 7Jvcriier in'iinates that
it would be. as well to leave il t O.ua
ha. Wo b( lteve the voice of the peo
n!e should he hnnrd in this inMier. If
they say leave it at 'Omaha, we say
amen; if they &ay Salt Creek, all riht.
W'o d j not believe our coteaiporarie?
are inclined to be "sectional," but that
the good of the people is the main j-prinjj
to their action on this suljtct. We
liutnv that the people of Omaha are
above "sectionalum," and will not at
tempt to influence this question for their
oivn lonefit, to the injury of any other
' Tire Constitution.
We inve received a copy of thisdoc
tirrient, and have given it a careful
perusal. In its general features we
prohunee il very good, although there
are some faults which we think might
have been improved however, its faults
a? a Constiiu'ion cou'd hardly re ar
gueJ an an objection to its adoption.
Ve hive opposed, and that strenuous
ly, the passage of the document by the
Legislature, and for reasons which we
think are phin to every reader of the
Hkrald. It has leen passed notwith
standing; and now w are anxious to
sec the ndrftnta-js end disadvantages
cf its ac!t'pii jn fairly ar.d fully discussed.
Should fcucli discusrion prove : that its
adoption wouid be advantageous to the
entire pe.-ple of Nebraska, we ?.y
adop.: it; while on the contrary, should
.such discussion prove that a::y coasid
er:Lle p.r.ion of car people would he
th loser by its adoption, v.-o say re-
iect it. Let i; have ihe arjemeut gen
tlemen, and I-.-t aM pr.rties havo a full
SOUTH PL.1T1E STATE.
We are pleased to see the Press, of
Nebraska City, come out manfully fur
ihe rights of the ptcp-lor f the South
I'i.tte country. The politicians of Oma
ha have long held the south Platte peo
ple subservient to their slightest beck;
but we trust the unprecedented spectacle
of a larje maj-'riiy obeying the man
dates cf a petty minority, will be known
no more forever in Nebraska. We
! have no ill feeling toward Omaha; cn
the contrary, we wish her ail the tuo
j cess she is entitled to; but what we want
i is that the balance of the Territory (or
! Slate) should have equal and exact
justice with Omaha. We of the South
Platte country have rights, as well as
any o'her ' portion of this fertile aud
; flourishing country; we uot only have
! rights, but know them, and knowing
dare maintain them. Now, the pecp'e
of this part of the Territory and we
believe the feeling is the frame clear
down to the ! southern .line have got
the idea in their heads that this State
arrangement was gotten up for the es
pecial benefit of Omaha and her illus
trious men; and for-that reason are loth
to take hold of the matter- The batik
is not always to the strong, else Omaha
would not Lave so completely conlroled
the whole Territory as the has done;
but there is an awakening of the hosts
now going on, and the scepter of pow
er has fallen from the hand that held it,
and used it unjustly. As we said be
fofeVwe demand equal and exact jus
tice; and if this cannot be secured un
der a' State government, the South
Piatte country Las the "people to vote
down State government. We are not
averse to a State, but are averse to any
thing that is controied by a few to the
detriment of the masses; and e cau
tion the people cf this section to look
well -to their rights, and not lo pledge
themselves either for or against Suite
uulil they understand il ia ail its bear
ings upon their interest-?.

was Swan's Revised Statutes of Ohio,
wid marginal nots and references.
I tru.it that tho labor has been so thor
oughly performed that we will need
but very little legislation for tome years
to come. r
The Legislature has been beseiged
with applications for special charters,
and one great advantage of having a
State Government would be to prohibit
ail kinds cf fpecial legislation. The
"Credit Foncier of America" was in
troduced early in the session, and a
greater amount of outside pressure
brought to bear on it than any other
bill of the session, and a strong dispo
sition evinced on the part of its friends
to abuse every member that opposed it.
The arguments used iu its favor were
that it would bring a large amount of
money into the Territory, and so tend
to deveiope it. The present bill is not
so bad as the first, but still is very ob
jectionable. I overheard a conversa
tion between one of its friends and a
member from your count j a few days
since, wherein the member contended
that the bill was a swiudle, or could be
used in that way, to which the friend
replied that it was not intended to swin
dle any one in Nebraska.
