wednesday, march 6, 1867
By the dispatches it will be seen that
Hon. T. M. Marquett too!: Lis seat iir
the House on the iM of March and was
allowed pay for the full session. It
will also be noticed that the Senators
elect reserved their seats until the
meeting of the Fortieth Congress.
While we are in favor of psare, and
opposed to exciting local jsa'ouiiss and
hatreJs, yet we are opposed to allowing
any "Regency" in Nebraska that will
trample upon the rights of the people.
In the late proceedure in the Legisla
ture, we have but a repetition of the
manner in which the Northern States
were always ruled by the '-Regency"
of Southern slaveholders. We did not
believe it to be prudent or matly cn
the part of the majority of the people
to submit to the domineering spirit of
the "chivairic Regency," neither do we
believe it is prudent or manly for the
majority of the people of Nebraska to
quietly submit to be dictated to by any
'clique'' or "Regency" in Nebraska.
At the last election the entire North
Piatte country cast 3,40S, while
the South Platte cast 5,o5Q votes; yet
these 5,556 voters must be teld that it
does not suit Omaha for them to have
their just representation in the State
Legislature. How loag before the
people of Nebraska will shake off the
lethargy with which they are affected
and through which they are ruled by a
factious minority. Do they begin to
"see it," or do they require a repetition
of the scene in the House on the night
of the 15th of February?
The iVcu-s is trying to console itself
and its readers with the hope thai Ne
braska may even yet not be a state.
It says the act of the Legislature ac
cepting the "conditions" was not signed
by the Governor, in consequence of a
disagreement as to which Governor
should sign it. We hope tha ex-candidate
for Dalegate, ex-candidate for
number of Congress, ex-candidate for
Governor, ex appointee of-o;.i;ica for
Governor, ex-Secretary of Nebraska
under old "Pub. Func." and would be
defeater of State and a joint apportion
ment, may derive all the comfort and
consolation he can from his ignorance
in regard to this matter. Although
"where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to
be wise," we cannot refrain from in
forming the Xews that the little matter
it appsars bo iubiilant over was ar
ranged by both Governors State and
Territorial signing the aforemention
ed act.
The JVeirs says it only demands jus
tice to its locality. That is eminently
sound, and looks well on paper, but we
would ask that sheet by what means it
expects to obtain "justice to our local
ity." Does it expect to get it by ref us
ing justice to all tha balance of Ne
braska? It is certainly not unjust that
three-fourths of the voters of Nebraska
should hav8 three-fourths of the llep
resentatives ia the State Legislature,
yet the J"eu:s upholds tha Otoe delega
lion in defeating a just apportionment,
and excuses itself on the ground that
Otoa wants the State University and
will sell out any or all portious of Ne
braska to secure its location there.
We would recommend that paper to
either advocate the one cour&e or the
other to go strictly in accordance with
iustice or strict! v "on the sell out" If
it desires justice done to Otoe county,
let it advocate the same thing for the
balance of Nebraska. We want noth
ing but what is fair and just in Cass
county; but we do demand that we, to
gether with the balance of the State,
have a just apportionment, and we do
cot believe in allowing Otoe Democra
cy er the city of Omaha to tell the peo
ple of Nebraska that they must ba sub
servient to them, and grant these lo
calities all they may ask, or have the
rights of the people trampled upon.
The way to obtain justice is to groat it
to others.
The last act nscessary to "wind up1
the State business was consummated on
Friday last. Senator Thayer arrived in
W'ashington on Thursday evening with
the act of our Legislature endorsing
the conditioni proposed by Congress,
and Andrew Johnson issued bis proc
lamation on Friday declaring Nebraska
a State of th Union. It ia probable
our Senators and Member of Congress,
were eworn in on Friday.
B: & M. II. It. LANDS.
By the unqualified assertion of the
Nebraska City papers that the lands of
the above named road have been restor
ed to market, many may be misled in
regard to the The facts are
as follows: Secretary Harlan decided
that, according to the act cf Congres
the company had the right to select
lands outside of the twenty miles on
each side of their line of road to com
pensate for ruch lands as were taken
within that twenty miles; and accord
ingly lands south of the line were
withdrawn from market for that pur
pose. Secretary Browning has revlrs-
ed that decision, and such lands as were
withdrawn from market for their use,
outside of the twenty miles on each
side of their line of road, hav8 been
restored nothing more. This decision
in no manner interferes with the origi
nal grant, nor with the amount of lands
to which the company is entitled, it only
changes the location of the lands to
which the company is entitled as an
equivalent for those owned by individ
uals within their grant. The enemies
of the road and enemies of the pros
perity of the western counties would
like to convey the idea that this decision
ef Browning's affects the entire grant;
but such is not the fact. The road is
being rapiJly built through Iowa, and
will soon be commenced at this point.
Are out in a lengthy article in the J?e
publican, which appears "variously"
muddled in regard to fact. They
"fight shy" of the main question, and
attempt to make a heavy fight against
the Cass county delegation. They say
the difficulty "was in no sense a party
-.ensure," and then go on to say that
they, (the factious minority) would ac
cept no conditions except the "defeat of
the obnoxious apportionment bill."
Haw does Morton and his "pocket
pieces"who represented him in the Leg
islature like to be placed in this shape;
opposing a measure which no man in
Nebraska dare say was unjust, and one
which every man south of the Platte
river must des, re to see consummated,
and yet not have the opportunity of ex
cusing their action by reason of "a
pmy question."
Morton talks in the Neves like h
kept the Otoe county delegation in his
broeches pocket, and only allowed them
in the foreground when it suited his
personal convenience. He talks of
selling them out for a "State Universi
ty," Hud tlucs uui allow lUem ouj voles
in the matter. How is it Do suca
men as Reeves, Anderson, Rolfe and
Graves belong to Mortou? Can he
say to them vote this or that way, and
compel them to do it? Do they allow
him to dictate what they shall do when
they have to bear the odium of miscon
duct? It certainly looks that way,
when they had all agreed to vote for a
general apportionment bill, and only
changed their minds after Morion came
to Omaha.
Dr. Miller has been particularly se
vere upon Mr. Rascal), Probate Judge
of Douglas county, because that gentle
man dared to assert his right as an
American citizen, and vote as he pleas
ed in the Legislature, despite the warn
ing of the Dr. and the balance of the
men who claim to own all Democrats.
A correspondent in the Republican hits
the Dr. a pretty solid cne, and in a ten
der place, as follows:
The Cow-Boy of the late rebellion
and the Scavenger of battle-fields still
continues to assail the Probate Judge.
The aforesaid Cow-Boy is very ungrate
ful, indeed; in fact, ingratitude is one
of his many vices. When he was
gorged and loaded down with plunder
in Arkansas, he was very grataful for
the protection that Gen. Thayer's color
ed soldiers afforded him. But now that
his sweet scented body is safe, and the
plunder is turned into type, he uses the
same to belle his protector.
We have not yet seen a solitary at
tempt to justify the defeat of the ap
portionment bill on the ground of equi
ty. If certain localities in Nebraska
desire to secure certain benefits throogh
Legislative action, can they expect to
accomplish it by saying if you do not
do this or that thing we will defeat the
ends of justice? Is that the best meth
od they can think of ? It seems to us
that if Otoe county wants a State Uni
versity, it would stand a far belter
chance to get it by showing its willing
ness to deal justly with the people at
large, and not set up to rule all Ne
braska and the rest of the world. If
it is justice to give Otoe the University,
all right say we, if Columbus is entit
led to it, give it'.oher; but by all means
give Nebraska City a fair apportion
ment. JSfThe last Democratic candidate
for Governor in Wisconsin Gen. Ho
bart has left the party and come out
in fsvor of universal suffrage.
We learn from ajreliatle source that
the people of Omlha are chuckling
over the defeat of the apportionment,
and say that Omaha never yet failed
in securing any legislation she desired.
Rather a doubtful compliment to certain
South Platte members, we should say.
and somewhat brazen in Omaha politi
cians. They might ba brought down
from that pinnacle of power which they,
in their own imagination, occupy with
such great security. This is a people's
government, and Nebraska is a State
of the Union. She cannot be dictated
to by a locality, a town or a mob; and
her people will feel the insult cf having
their rights denied them end then being
laughed at because? they were denied.
How do you like t fellow-citizens of
South Platte, to lave Omaha refuse
you just representation and then boast
that she has done it, and "never failed"
to carry her point. How do the mem
bers from Otoe like this "dig," after
having voted for an apportionment that
took one Senator ilrom them, and then,
through the influence of Omakt were
induced to vote against an apportion
ment that did not disturb their repre
sentation, but gave equal and exact
justice to all sections, or as near it as
could be done?
By seme chance, a stray copy of "The
Old Gnard," a recognized standard
Democratic magazine, found its way to
our table. The leading editorial in the
number before us is in denunciation of
Congress, after tie style of Johnson
whilejhe was "swjinging round the cir
cle," and urging the thorough organi
zation of the "Sous of Liberty. As
this order is a thoroughly 'Democratic'
institution, and is supported by the
leading periodicals of the party, proba
bly some of our Democratic friends in
this part of the cduntry would like to
more thoroughly understand its objects
and aims. The following: extracts from
testimony given at the time of the
breaking up of the trder and arrest of
the leaders in Indiana will serve this
purpose. i
Wesler Tranter, a member of the
order, testified as follows:
Q. Were you sworn to support Jeff.
Davis by that obligation?
A. Yes, sir, whenever we were call
ed upon.
Q. Did you ao say that you were
sworn into the service cf Jeff. Davis?
A. Yes, sir. Thsy taid that all he
asked was that these three Western
States join him, and he would soon
thrash out all the blue coats, and then
they would go eastward.
VYiiai Mates uia they refer to?
A. Indiana. I!!!noM and Missouri.
They would therj clean all the rest out
like a hurriconej
Harrison Connell testified :
Stone, the man whe initiated me,
made a speech to that effect. We were
told we were in the service of Jeff.
Davit, and that if we were captured,
we would be exchanged like any other
prisoners. There was a good deal of
dissatisfaction about it tmong the mem
bers. :
Hfffren, Deputy Grand Commander
of Indiana, testified :
1 was told by a member of the order
that Vice President Stephens, of the
Southern Confederacy, had gone to
Nassau to make j an arrangement by
which the members of the order in the
North would be supplied with arms.
Large quantities of arms and munitions
had teen shipped to Nassau from Eng
land for the Confrderates, but being
unable to run them through the block
ade nt Wilmington, Mr. Stephens
made an arrangement by which the
arms were to bt shipped to Commis
sioners in Canada, from whence they
would be distributed to the order in the
Northern States.
He further testifies :
In order that the property of mem
bers might be protected from destruc
tion in the uprising, a white flag, trim
med with red ribbon s ) as to form the
red, white and red, of the rebel colors,
was to be hung out, and the destroying
angels would pass by. The raid was
expected on the 16th of August Dr.
Bowles had sen messengers to Price,
and to Richmond.
J. B. Wilson jone of the Staff officers
testifies to being at a Grand Council in
Chicago, in July last at which Barrett,
Grand Commander of Missouri staled
that he thought:
The Union could be restored by
crushing abolitionism, if the order in
the North would only co operate with
the Southern armies. He said it was
contemplated to have an uprising on the
3d of Augnst, but it had failed. He
thought, however, we could gel ready
by the 10th or 15th. The Southern
leaders had authorised him to place at
the disposal of tt is Order two millions
of dollars to prepare for a general up
rising. This nioney, he said, was cap
tured from a Federal paymaster, on
Red River. The money was to be di
vided aninng the Grand Commanders
of the different States, who would dis
tribute it among their subordinates ac
cording to their discretion. The mon
ey was to be expended in the purchase
of arms and munitions of war. Mr.
Barrett said he would pay the expenses
of all who attended the meeting out cf
the fund. I received forty dollars for
that purpose. At a subsequent meet
ing Barrett slated that 11 portion of the
money received from the rebels had
been paid out f?r the destruction of
government property. There was an
arrangement with the rebel govern
ment, by which they paid ten per cent,
of the value of all property destroyed,
taking the estimate in the papers as a
basis. He mentioned the burning of
Government Warehouses on Eighth
Street, Louisville, and tha burning of
Government boat, ns instances where
the agreement bad been carried out.
I afterwards learned from Bowles that
Greek fire was an agent used in de
stroying this property.

The bill for the admission of Ne
braska having been passed by Congress
over the President's veto, that Territo
ry, after many ineffectual applications,
is at length admitted to a place among
the States, making the whole number
of States now thirty seven. Nebraska
was organized as a territory in the
year 1S54, and at one time embraced a
vast region of unclaimed country, for
merly a part of the original Louisiana
purchase, out of which, up to the pres
ent time, six separate States have been
formed. The State of Nebraska is
west of Iowa, and lies nearly in the
same lattitude. Its length from north
to south is 610 miles, and its breadth is
540 miles,, giving an area of about
65.000 square miles. It has hitherto
attracted emigration chiefly by the
richness and fertility of its soil, though
mineral treasures have been found in
considerable quantitiesin some portions
of ihe State. The greater part of the
land is level, of undulrting prairie, and
the temperate climateadmirably adapts
it to the uses of the agriculturist. The
population of Nebraska has increased
rapidly within the last ten years, and
the great facilities fr transportation
afforded by its many rivers, make it
probable that this State will enjoy a
substantial and growijg prosperity,
Col. Halpine, (Miles O'Reilley.)
himself long an earnest and devoted
laborer 111 the rankj if the Democracy,
in a late number of Lis paper, the N.
Y. Citizen, thus truthfully declares the
present status of that once powerful
organization :
The Democratic party has disappear
ed from the face of the earth; under
the management of ima who promised
England, in their interview with Lord
Lyons in this city, tha. the only stum
bling block in England's road to uni
versal empire should 0& removed by a
successful rebellion, it has been beaten
again and again, till it has no present
power and no future prospects. The
Republicans, as embodying whatever
was opposed to surrender to treason
and abasement before England have
triumphed at all points, till they hold
possession of the country without the
shadow of available opposition.
Having ourselves nerved in the Dem
ocratic ranks; having voted for-McClel-lan
upon his loyal letter not upon the
Chicago platform ; having supported
Hoffman although we acknowledge

guage, strong though it may be. We

these views are held by others.
The report made by the Postmaster
General, in compliance with a resolu
tion of inquiry from the Senate, states
that during the months of August, Sep

An Obstinate Remedy. A doctor
in this vicinity was recently called to
prescribe for a somewhat illiterate old
lady, and as cod liver oil in his opinion,
was the remedy for her complaint, he
wrote a prescription for the apothecary
to put up, with the formula, "Ole Jec.
Ass" the unintelligible terms being
an abreviation of "Oleum Jecoris 1s
sdli " in plain English, cod liver oil.
The medicine was procured, taken, and
in a few weeks the lady completely re
covered her health. A neighbor paid
her a visit after her recovery, and, ex
pressing surprise at her improved con
dition, inquired the secret of so rapid u
restoration. "Why," said the old lady,
lif :ing her hands id grateful enthusiasm,
"it was lhat beautiful medicine, the Oil
of Jackass, lhat brought me on my feet
again!" The inquirer called on the
doctor soon after, with a request for
fome of the same remedy, and when
the physician became aware of the nov
el rendering of his classics, ihe guffaw
which ensued can be better imagined
than described.

Pilate, when the populace cried eut.

inquired, "why, what evil hath he
done ?" The boy read quite closely
