The Nexcs says : "The worthy dele

The mere statement of ihe' jYews to
that tfTcCt does "not make it so, neither
will it convince the people. It is a well
known fact, and is not denied by ihh
tt-sf that the Otoe delegation voted
against an apportionment bill that gave
one more member, at least, to the South
Platte country thin we now have, and
that they did vole for another bill which
dimini-hed the representation of Otoe
one member. We do not wish to be
understood as finding any fault with
their vote todimini-h their own repre
sentation, because it still left the South
Platte representation as before, and if
thee Otots were conience stricken
and thought their county had more
members than she was entitled to, they
were riht to strike olT one member
and give it to such counties as were en
titled to it. Hut hen they voted
against a bill to apportion representa
tion according to voters, merely be
cause the "Regency" at Omaha said
they should, and promised them a Stal

The city election which came off in
O.naha on the 4'h inst., resulted in a
complete copperhead victory. The i?e
jnillican says frauds, riot and anarchy
were the order of the day. We make
the following extracts:
The frnu Is perpetrated at tho elec
tion yesterday t,y illegal voting were
of the most stupendous magnitude. Of
this there is iho most positive proof.
Men voted iu one ward and then went
by the .vagon load and by the platoon
to 'the? oth-er wards and vo'ed again.

mat flourished Bnvie knives, fired re
volvers, and drove the negro voters
from the polls. This is the tyle of pro
ceeding urged on by these papers and
the desperate leaders of the party in
Nebraska. They do not confine their
actions to mobbing negroes, but carry
it into our Legisladve halls. Is this
the party and are these the principles
that honest, peaceable citizens desire
to uphold? Let men consider these
things seriously, and ask themselves it
ihey wish to support and build up a par
ty that endorses mob law where they
cannot secure their ends otherwise.
We can see no honor in obtaining a
political victory through lawlessness
and rnob violence. No man who is
able to reed has any excuse for being
ignorant of the fact that negroes are
much entitled to vote in Nebraska as
are white men; and the party thai
drives them from the p . IL has the same
ric bit to drive every white man from the
polls. Not three days before ihe election
in Omaha, the Acus admitted the right
of negrot s to vote, but has not one word
of condemnation now for the Demo
cratic mob that, by force of arms, drove
them from the polls at Ounha.
We see a diversity of cpinion ex
pressed in different papers as to why
our Senators did not take iheir seats in
the cl.ising hours of ihe 39ih Congress.
Some say it wns because the two years
of the 3Q;h Congress uculd be deduct
ed from ih.;ir terra cf strvice, and oth
ers ihat they could not tike their seats
from the fact that Senator Tipton was
n il ihre in time, and that it was nec
essary for both to be present in order
that the question of the iong and short
term rnigh: te decided upon at the time
of their taking seats. The latter is
likely ihe correct reason.

In dissecting ihe corpse of a pauper
at the Twenty-third Street Medical
College recently, the s'udents unex
pectedly found evidence that another
j human being had been devoured by
; ,he J(ifiniiess mal worm which the fac-
u!ty call irichitice spiralis. The intes
tines, when subjected to microscpic ex
amination, proved to be literally alive
i with these miuuie destroyers, and they
were found in abundance everywhere
in th'3 muscular tissue. Th body was
that of a woman cf whom the hospital
au h.irities knew nothing, beyond the
fact that she was a put.psr, and died
s:on after her admission to Bdlevtie
Hospital, nnd, as a subject that had
peri-hed of an unknown malady, had
been surrendered to tho surgeons for
dissection. Trichina- in c-normou
numbers having been discovered in the
body, the surgeons strove tu ascertain
something of the hi-tory of the v.viain
rae, hoping thus to add to th-'ir stock
of information concerning the oriirin of
these destructive worms. a:;d of ih

One of ihe greatest outrages evv-r
known iu either a civdiz d or uncivil
ized community was t-erpetraiod at the
second ward poll, just at iu close yes
terday. It is a foul blot upon the good
name of O.naha, the iio-morv o: whkh

first time in their lives, oifer to exer
cise their rictus as electors confrrtd
ou them by the organic law cf die Ter
ritory, by the Statutes cf tha Territory
and by the actsadmit'.ing Nebraska into
the Union as a State. When people
awoke this morning, there were found
posted up in innumerable places slips of
manuscript, so miserably written as t t
be nearly illegible, threatening the col
ered men with death and all manner of
violence if they attempted to exercise
this lawful right. We have a number
cf these now in our possession.

Many thought these threats were not
seriously intended, and that the Dem

in perhaps less than fifteen u.inutc
there were four hundred of them gath
