"Treason to, tha Democracy, either
io Nebraska or elsewhere, is treason
against lha peaea and harmony of the
Union. .
The above ii from the Nebraska
City JVVic, edited by Julius S. Mortoo,
standing Democratic candidate for any
position that there is the ghoit cf a
chance to be elected to, and is a fair
specimen of the Democratic idea of
treason. He cices not count it as trea
son to fiffht four vears to destroy the
Government, is the Democ
racy who are fighting ; but anything
that does not place Democratic dema
gogues in power is ''treason against the
peace and harmony of the Union."
The Omaha Herald is considerably
exercised with fear of Gen. Heath.
The General is here with his "pocket
full of documents' authorizing him to
recruit for the Philadelphia Convention,
and the Herald is inclined to "discour
age enlistments" under him. Hear
"The Gen. will have been informed,
re he sees 'this, that the Democracy
who comprise the only real friends of
President Johnson in this Territory,
have already appointed delegates to the
convention, which we hope will save
hint the trouble of acting.
We extend personal welcomes to
the General, and hope he will not do
anything to muddle the Johnson busi
ness in Nebraika."
It certainly would be very wrong in
Gen. Heath to do anything to "mud
dle" this business, and w doubt not he
will heed the advice of the Herald.
But, then, we suppose he hat just as
good a right to be a "Johnson" man as
anybody. He expects his bread and
butter from that quarter, as well as
the Democracy; and we see no good
reason why he should be proscribed in
his endeavors to do something to help
"Io.:ea" al ng. The loyal people are
all down on this man Moses, and he
needs all the help he can get. His
"friends" should not begin to quarrel
about who shall have the largest slice
of "bread and butter' jut yet, neither
should they say that this one or that one
should not have any, merely because
he done nothing to assist the rebellion.
Go it, Heath; go it. Train; go it,
It is amusing to see with what per
sistency the Democratic-Conservative-Andy
Johnson-rebel elavationists of
Nebraska labor to divert the public
mind from their record. They stand
pledged to the support of illegal voting
and ballot-box stuffing, and we defy
them lo an attempt to clear their skirts
of the charge. The people of Ne
braska have had enough of such work,
and the time has arrived when they
will see to it that our election laws are
not treated as a farce. Let them speak
lo these men who uphold the stuffing of
ballot-boxes, in tones that cannot be
mistaken, as they most assuredly will
this fall. They have already told
Morton and Miller that there was no
position within the gift of the people
sufficiently low that they' could ever
expect to reach it, and they wilt yet
teach these workers of iniquity that
na man or party can ever hope to con
trol the people while they deprive them
of their just rights by advocatitg and
sustaining illegal voting and ballot-box
stuffing. You have made the issue
by your own acts, gentlemen ; and we
call upen you to abide it, and not tiy to
shirk the question.
It is perfectly natural to suppose that
a man who will betray one person,
will, when an opportunity presents it
self, betray any others who may be
real or pretended friends. Andy M.
Johnson has betrayed the Republican
party, or attempted to, and we are not
surprised that he should be looked upon
with suspicion by those who have -so
lately sought refuge in his bosom.
We are somewhat surprised, however,
to hear a cry of "no respect for his
friends" come up from them at such an
early day. The Omaha Herald, , ot
the 2 1th, says :
"The Herald proceeds to stand by
Andrew Johnson with all its might,
as usual. If Andrew Johnson would
proceed to stand by the Herald, the
Herald would feel that the aforesaid
Andrew Johnson was capable of some
respect for his friends.
I This certainly is rather rough for a
commencement. It says, plain enough
that the Herald does not "feel that the
aforesaid Johnson' is capable of re
epect for his friends, but that if" he
(Johnson) would proceed to "stand by
the Herald." it miffht then "feel hat
he was capable of some respect for his
friends." You may well look upon
him with suspicion, Dr., for he baa
Droved false to the ereat parly that
saved tho life ef the nation, and he
cannot be trusted, even by sympathies
i'uiuivi: eri.(r..csv nniAi'B
It is thought by some that Andy
Johnson was not in earnest when he
declared that he would make "treason
odjous;M but his conduct of late has fully
convinced all true Union men that he
is making his word good whether he
intended to or not. He is taking sides
wilh treason, and if that don't make it
"odious" we are at a loss to know what
We understand a corps of engineers
are now engaged in selecting a point
near Kearney where the Omaha branch
f the Pacific road will cross to the
south side of Platte river. We know
not whether our information in this re
gard is correct, and we do not consider
it of any great importance to the peo
ple of this locality whether that road
crosses the Platte or not. Tho Bur
lington extention will build west from
this city just the same whether the
Omaha road comes to it or not.
Under the above heading the Omaha
Republican, of the 24th, has a lenghty
article, the concluding portion of which
we srive below. The Republican eives
everal extracts frcn papers which are
advocating a strong military more
gainst supposed h3Jti!e bands of In
dians, and claims that the very same
papers advocated a"peace policy" with
the Indians while we had the military
force on hend to chastise them. The
Republican urges that, as a peace pol
icy has keen determined upon by the
authorities, we should make all proper
efforts to determine whether a peace
can be effected with these savages by
conciliatory measures and treatiss, be
fore we rush into a war of extermina
tion. After giving tho extracts above
alluJed to some of which claim that
20,000 Indians were present at the
Laramie Council, where they obtained
powder and provisions, and left there
only to take the war-path against the
whites, and that depredations have al
ready commenced en a grand scale
the Republican says:
We have placed these extravagant
statements before our readers in order
that they may know of the efforts made
lo manufacture a false public sentiment.
It is well known to the mojority of the
people of Nebraska that these reports
eouli not have been true, unless In
diana are ubiquitous. No one has
seen one hundred or five hundred hos
tile Indians "between Fort Kearney
and Julesburg." It is false that the
great number cf Indiana mentioned in
seme of these extracts were assembled
at Frt Laramie; and it is also utterly
false that the amount of ammunition
spoken of was obtained, at the Fort.
The Commiision which went out to
treat with these Indians only took to
Fort Laramie about 50,000 rations and
net one pound of poxeder.
In regard to the issue of rations,
there certainly is a great discrepancy
between the allegations of the Leav
enworth correspondents and these of
certain unscrupulous partizans in this
mrtion of the country. The latter
have charged that there were but five
hundred Indians present; and that there
were eight thousand rations i.sued per
day making a net profit to the Com
missionera of seven thousand five huo
dred ration! We will leave those who
make these widely contradictory state
merits, to reconcile them t their leisure
A dispatch was received by. a busL
ness house of this city, yesterday, stat
ing that the Sioux and Cheyennes had
burned Ukaorn station, consuming
seven horses, and had run off several
head of stock near the forks cf Platte
From other information, we did not
think it prudent to publish the report,
and consequently nothing in relation to
the matter appeared in tne Republican
Our advices to day are that the whele
thing was a mere surmise. The sta
tion was burned, but took fire through
the carelessness of parties who had
been cooking in it, and the horses re
ported stolen, merely stampeded.
We regret that in this matter cur
cotemporary was in such haste to add
to an unnecessary excitement and ap
prehension. It is but tho part of the
most ordinary prudence to wait until
such unauthentic and damaging reports
are confirmed before startling emigra
tion with their publication. We go
security far the conduct of no Indian.
We recommend all travelers to be cau
tioug and vigilant; for we look for petty
thefts and perhaps an occasional niur
dtr, under the best possible phase of
affairs.' But so far as wo now know.
the Indians who signed the treaty at
Laramie, have kept the peace. We
have heard of no train being interrupt
ed on the line of travel up the Platte,
which is certainly an improvement
upon last years experience There
has been a suspension. l-lMicvilrsl,

Editor Right Way: An affect
ing letter written last month bv a loyal
father residing in the South to a rebel,
who against his father's remonstrances,
entreaties, prayers, and almost curses,
took up arms against his country, has
fallen into my hands. I have been
permitted to copy it, and send you a
portion of it, that your readers whose
ot has been cast in more favored places
may know how severely some of their
Southern brethren have been tried, and
what renjoD they have to look with
horror upon the crime of rebellion.
D. G.
W , My Sou, Son of a never-
forgotten mother, What shall I say
to you ? My hand would fain refuse
her duty; my heart trembles. Mem
ory brings up those old days when you
were an only child, our little ene ;
when, as you lay trembling in my arms,
the cold drops of water from the sacred
font fell on your brow, while your
mother stood weeping by, her soul
leaning on God, on whose bosom she
has now found rest. What blessed
memories cling around that hour, and
those days of youth ! ; What a cup of
bliss to drink anew, as drawn from the
never-dying fountain of a father's
Yet to me you have made this a for
bidden cup. I must da?h it to the
ground. 'Tis selfish to enjoy it, for
around me where I write, lie twenty
five thousand graves, so new and fresh
that scarcely a green blade has ventured
to creep up and steal nourishment from
their bosoms. Whose graves are these.
which no mother, father, wife, sister
or brother has knelt by in prayer, or
watered with their tears? They are
the graves of the patriotic freemen,
defenders of universal freedom ; a holy
band of martyrs, whose undying efforts
struck the chains from four million of
degraded bondmen, and made every hill
and vale in this broad land send forth
the shout of freedom! They are part
of that heaven-inspired host which
struck the darkest, vilest rebellion that
ever blackened the pages of history,
dead on its track, and left its miserable
skeleton a shattered ruin amidst its de
ceived, conquered, down-trodden, guilty
adherents and votories.
W , my son, my once darling
boy, as I walk among these graves, a
voice seems to corne up from this sac
rificial altar, saying, "'Tis not enough!
'tis not finished ! Who will be our
avenger ? Shall the instigators of this
accursed crime remain unpunished?
Has our blood been spilled in vain ?'
I answer, "No ; for the spirit of re
bellion, murder and crime is still alive,
and more bitter than ever. God has
a purpose to perform, and is saying of
this mad people, as he did ef Ephraim,
'He is joined to his idols : let him alone
while he is making the councils of the
modern Ahithophel foolishness,to carry
out that purpose. This accursed fire
brand of Southern insurrection is crush
ed by the heel of war.but not squelched.

haired is unbosomed and full in view

its own desolatiens, ready to be blown
into renewed force by the first breath
of political dissension. Then begins
the end, and you will be avenged; for

and as for yourself you trust that I have
no cause to blush, since you made your
choice, and refer me to the public rec
ord, &.c.
W , you are a traitor. Treason
is the blackest crime man can be guilty
of. Treason against such a govern
ment as ours, and fcr such a cause,
to perpetuate slavery, is crime, mur
der, and the most utter barbarity. No
ink is dark enough to write its name;
no fire fervent enough lo purge and
refine the soul once polluted with it.
Such ia treason and such its doom.
Are t7 public records those you refer
me to? I have read them, and find
your name thtre written in blood of
your kindred. Would to God I had
not ! But it is there. Treason claims

We understand that there is quite a
stsmpede from our mining districts, lo
the new placer diggings recently dis
covered on Bear River. All torts of
fabulous stories coneemiogthe richness
of the new mines are being circulated,
and having the usual erfec. Our
latest advices from Bear River, July
lih, do not give any ground for these
wonderful stories. Our correspondent,
an old prospector, says that the pros
pects are good, thought he has not yet
discovered anything to warrant the
present etcitement. He is working a
c'aim with good encouragement as to
future pay. The bed-rock has not yet
been reached in any of the claims now
being opened.
The quartz in the lodes of the Bear
River region, is so totally different
from that found in other sestions of the
Territory, thut prospectors are at a loss
in estimating its value. Indications
seems to justify a belief, that there
ere good mines, both lode and gulch,
but there is nothing yet positively known
that authorizes the present exeited rush
o the cointry.
Our correspondent describes the
country as surpassing in beauty any
other part of the mountains, whiie the
valleys are represented to be apparently
as low, and consequently as susceptible
of successful cultivation, as the country
here at the base of the mountains. A
new mining district has been organ
ized under the name of German Dis
trict Rocky Mountain JYeurs.

PMOVf ' . f AT 1 Ut- aK AVW allrtn B Mass. ill n
The opponents of negro suffrage
seem to take it for granted that if ne
grcs are allowed to vote, they must be
allowed to marry white women! that
it follows a necessary consequence, not
simply that the negro will have the
rig- to do so, but that he will do so
that white women will at once rush to
ike arms of colored men and beoome
their wives, whether or not! Now,
why this infernal nonsense ? Nay,
this infamous slander upon the female
sex of the Anglo Saxon raoe? of our
American white women ?
Why should "social equality'1 follow
in case of the negro any more than in
case of the different vrone races? All
white are allowed to voto" But are all
white men in this country on a social
equality ? We all know that they are
not. Why then should the negro be
an exception? Is there anything about
him that gives him a preference over
all other human beings, in the estima
tion of white women, so that if be is 1
once allowed simply to rofe, the white
daughters of our bestsoeiety will open
their arms and their hearts to him in
preference to the Irishman, the Dutch
man and the white American ? If not,
then why say that negro suffrage means
negroes marrying white women?
There is no such thing aa "social
equality" in this country, even among
white people.and never will be. Such
a thing never was and never will be in
any country ; and if negroes are a
race still lower in the scale oT human
ity than any of the white races as
everybody admits them to be where
the danger of their breaking over the
barriers and laws of social life, and
proving an exception to the general
rule, in case they are admitted to the
ballot-box? Remember, we are nol
advocating negro suffrage. We only
advocate common sense and honesty in
discussing the question. Indiana Ga
