"THE PEOPLE."
Much s said by Democratic journals
about the rights of 'the people" of the
Slates, especially those of the late re
bellious States; Who are "the people"
of these States? Do the cotton plan
ters constitute all the people, or i it
officers cf the late rebel army alone
that are called "people."' Or are
Democratic journals ready to include
all citizens within their meaning of the
term "people." We are in favor of
"the people" having all the rights ai.d
privileges to which they are in any
manner entitled, but are epposed to one
portion alone and that the rebellious
portion having full control of affairs
while the o'.hers the loyal blacks
are 'utject to be again ground under
the heel of oppression. If the people
of a State or Territory desire to exer
cise privileges which they are pleaied
to term rights, they should nut forget
to accord the same privileges or rights
to all citizens. It certainly would not
be claimed as justice to give greater
privileges to those persons who have
labored hard to destroy the Government
than to those who helped to sustain it.
The Cheyenne Leader says that a
few days f-ince a party of Indians
placed sods upon the track of the U. P.
It. R. at a point between Pine Bluffs
and Antelope station. Some men with
a hand car coming up chose to take the
chances of e-countering the sods rather
than the red devils, who were near at
hand, awaiting results. The car pass
ed the obstructions without harm, and
the red devils were foiled.
Mr. Charles Dickens decided to
leave England for the United States on

cellent health and spirits. Mr. Wilkie
Collins will take charge of All the

THE SCHOOL, LAXtlS.
Ed. Herald: As the School Lands
in our county ore advertised to be sold
next January, I dsire to call attention
to some features of the law authorizing
the tale, that may work a hardship
and perhaps may prevent some from
purchasing who desire to do so.
Sec. 16 of the act reads as follow?;
Payments for land sold under the .pro
visions of this act shall be mads a fol
lows; for prairie lands one tenth of the
price, cash in hand, and for cher lanas,
one half cash in hand, with a pruinis
sory mte for the remainder, to mature
on the first day. of January,
bearii.g interest payable aunuai;y m
advance, at ten per cent, per annum
the first payment of interest being com
pleted to the firs: of January next after
the date of the note; such noie lo be
secured by the endorsement of two
freeholders of the County, and one ad
di'.ional endorser for every five hundred
dollars of the principal of the note, af
ler the first fire hundred, the note to be
accompanied by a comract which shall
specify the times and terms of payment,
and that no waste shall be committed
upon the lands, and in case of non
payment of interest or principal the
land shall be surrendered, with the
improvements thereon, to the State.
That, Mr. Editor, certainly seems
strong enough to secure, at least the
State of Nebraska, against any possi
ble los?, but it i3 the interest of the
State, also, to protect her citizens in the
enjoyment of their rights, and thus add
to the general prosperity. It might be
well io enquire for what purpose these
notes thus secured by endorsers are
given? Is it for the payment of the
land, or merely as collateral security
for the payment, or as a sort of indem
nity against pov-ible loss. The lan
2uare of the Section is vague. Nei
ther does it clearly appear from the law,
whether a purchaser can pay in full for
bis land at the time of purchasing the
same, although Section 14 may admit
of that construction. The law, on the
whole is, probably, a good one, but
needs amending in several particulars,
and let me enquire if the necessity of
further legislation on several impor
tant matters does not require a session
of the Legislature during the coming
winter. Among other things the Le
gislature ought to submit to the people
at the next election, the propriety of
calling a Constitutional Convention.
We certainly need several changes in
cur organic law.
WHO C.tl SLD IT?.
an argument against the Republican
party, that we have an immense na
tional debt; that the country has been
deluged in blood; that heavy taxes are
levied; that all kinds of goods are sold
at double the prices tLat ruled before
the war; and a hundred other things
which are consequences of the war
These are all charged upon the Re
publican party by copperhead papers
and what appears the most singular of
all is that some people pretend to be
lieve that the Republican party is actu
ally responsible for every evil brought
about by the war. Do people of this
mind ever stop to consider how this
war was brought about? Do they ever
consider what the consequence would
have been if the Government, under
the control of the Republican piny. t:ad
not fought for its own maintenance?
Do they ever consider who began the
war and why it was begun? The war
was commenced and prosecuted by the
Democratic party, and now they charge
it as a great responsibility upon Re
publicans that this Government should
have contracted a debt in giving them
a thrashing. The only way these
things could have been avoided was
not to carry on a war, but allow the
Democratic party to rend the Govern
ment in fragments and liy violent
hands upon all property belonging to
the Government. We doubt no. this
is the course every man who is now
charging these things upon the Repub
lican party would have had the authori
ties pursue.
THE WAR OF IIACES.
Our northern secessionists who
evince so much anxiety to wr'ne up a
war of races in the Southern States,
might take a lesson in good sense from
that fierce rebel, Wade Hampton, who,
in a letter to the citicens of South Car
olina, writes:
We have recoguized the freedom of
the blacks, and have placed this fact
beyond oil probability of doubt, denial,
or recall. Let us recognize in the
same frank manner, and as full, their
political rights. For myself, I confess
that I am perfectly willing to see a
Constitution adopted by our State con
ferring the elective franchise on the
negro, on precise'- the same term? as
is exercised by the white man, guard
ing against the abuse of this privilege
by a flight educational and property
qualification for all classes.

XEGHO SUFFRAGE.
How mbiiy, or what proportion of
the Democractic voters of the United
States do you suppose comprehends the
real point at' is;ue in what is called
"negro suffrage? As we understand
the issue it is not whether the negro,
because he is a negro, shall be allowed
to vote; but it is whether a black skin
is futficient to disqualify a person from
voting. How many Democrats, so
called, in Nebraska, dare to risk the
assenio-, and leave themselves upon
the record tjnis, that a black skin is
sulHder.t to debar a man from the elec
live fiati'l.i-f? How many of them will
say that curly I"ir should be made a
d.s.quliru'aMoi.? And just how dark
must the skiu be, and just how many
kinks must the hair have, to disqualify
the possessor. It is not in accordance
with he principles of free governmen'
to make any such test as race or color
a qualification for voting, and we do
not believe there are a baker's dozen
of intelligent Democrats in Nebraska
who will disagree with us. It would
be just as reasonable and just to say
that every man with red hair ana a
freckeled skin should not vote as to say
that every man who had kinky hair
and a black skin should be debarred
that privilege. The man or pr.rty who
would make such a test would debar al
Irishmen, or Germans, or Englishmen,
or any other clas3 of people from voting
if they concluded such people were not
going to support them or vote to sus
tain the measures which they wanted.
Intelligence to understand the nature
of our government is the only test that
can be applied to voters without viola
ting the spirit of our free institutions-,
except when individuals debar them
selves by the commission of crime or
otherwise. However much prejudice
there may be in the minds of the
American people against persons with
black skins we should remember that
through justice alone can a Republican
form of government be maintained. It
we adopt the principle that color saali
be a tesi of citizenship or of quahfica
tion for the franchise, just so soon do
we establish the foundation for an aris
tocratic government, and for the dis
tranchieement' of any or all persons
who do not happen to please those in
po'j-er. We must abide by justice and
right, let it affect individuals or parties
of the present time as it will, else we
sap the foundations, of our Republican
Government and our Free Institutions
And who is there that dares to stand
by the assertion that it is right and just
because his skin is darker or his hair
of a d.fierent texture from his own.
The Council Bluffs and St. Joseph
railroad has been definitely located
through Atchison ceuniy; that company,
says the Atchison county Journal, hav
ing adopted the old survey up he hot
torn between the two rivers. Ties are
being contracted for, and a large force
is already at work in the northern part
of the county preparing the road bed
for the ties. The cars will be runninc
as far sou'h as Hamburg Iowa, from
the northern terminus, by the midd'e of
November, and as far north of St. Jo
seph as Forest Ciiy, in Holt county, by
the first of January next. The compa
ny are making an effort to have the
road completed and in running order
by the first of March, 1868.
A voting machine is one of the
inventions of the nineteenth cen'ury,
and a patent has been npplied for at
Washington. The machine invented
is intended to facilitate the taking of
the yeas a.id nays in public bodies
By an arrangement of wires similar
to that of the hotel annunciator, con
necting the desks of the memqers of a
deliberative body with ihe voting appa
ratus, members are enabled to vote all
at once, and, after a moment's time al
lowed for a change of vote by any mem
ber who may desire it, the result, that
is, the individual vote of each memcer.
together with the aggregates respec
tively of the yeas and nays, is plainly
shown on the dial plates. Simultane.
ously with the summarized result, the
name of each member voting is print
ed. This machine is soon lo have a
public trial in the chamber of the
Washington Common Council. If it
sucreeds, it will be a death-kuell to the
legislative dodge of killing time by call
ing for the yeas and nays.
When the intelligence of the re
suit of the Pennsylvania and Ohio elec
tions reached Montgomery, Alabama,
the old Irish news agent there ran
along the streets with the morning pa
pers, crying out; "Good news for the
rebels, good nws for the rebels the
beat I have had since the time they de
feated the Yankees, during the war!"
Jerome lost twenty thousand dol
lars on the race of Kentucky against
time. John Hunter won five thousand
dollars, and one hundred aud fifty
thousand changed hands on Wall
rtrcet.
L.1XC01W CITY ITEMS.
We clip the following items from the
Commonwealth:
Elder Young is building a stone
residence near his present place.
Mr. Briggs has the frame of a
dwelling up, near the Steam Sawmill.
Dr. D. M. Tingley is electing a
two story stone house on lOih street, to
be occupied as drug store.
J R. Durm is just completing a
stone building on O" St., opposite
Sherwood's hardware establishment.
Messrs. Bebee & Abbott, are pre
paring to build on Q St., one Llock east

rial is nearly all on the ground. .
S. B. Galey. County Clerk, and
S. B. Linderman, Deputy Clerk, have
just completed a very neat stone struc
ture on North side Market squnre.
Sroat's new busines house on the
corner of ()"' and llth Streets, has
been purchased by Mr. Sherwood, who
is fitting it up for the hardware busi
ness. He will open ver' shortly.
Judge Cadman having bought the
walls tf the Seminary building facing
Market Square, is converting it into a
hotel. He expects to move in in a few
days. We notice a very neat little cot
tage house going up ou 9th street, be
longing to Mr. Cook lately from Mas
sachusetts. Our Methodist Episcopal friends
will soon have their church completed
on the corner of "Q" aud lOih Street.
Rev. Mr. Hawks, the preacher in
charge is superintending the work.
Langdnu has secured the contract
for budding the school h use, and is

by the 2-3th of this month.
- Mr. Ward, a builder from Chica
go, who proposes to compete for the
contrac for the erection of th Capitol
has been here inspecting the quarries.
He left for Omaha two weeks ago.
Mr. V. seems well saisnd with the

THE SUFFA"ciE"QUE9TIO. IX
OHIO.
While the mere partisan exults over
he victoriesof the hour, heedless of the
ultimate results which they portend,
the thoughtful and patriotic lover of
his country and of truth, ponders the
lessons which they teach, and profits
by the-r instructions.
The vote of the people of Ohio on
the suffrage ijutstion in Ohio, viewed
tin s. is not so discouraging to the ad
vocal es of in partial suffrage as its ene
mies seem lo imagine. The Democrat
says:
"The vote given for the enfranchise
iV"Jio"t ,"7" t:u ""i.!e in Ohio was
iU.ybi, which, us the Lutiuncrcial
well rt marks, is "a larger vcue than
was ever given in any age or couiiiry,
by one race, io make political equals of
another." Nei her justice, human. ty,
nor practical wi-dom, his at any time
during the world's history availed to
remove that spnt of cast whirh is the
essence of a. I tyianny and the foe of
all tree governments. Our ownpeo
jIe come nearer accoinplirqing the task
than any other, but ih-y have vet a
deeply rooted prejudice to overcone.
We call oursel"ts Republicans, hut in
some Slates a majority of the people
are still in favor of an aristocracy.
We read the Declaration of Iudepr-iid
enC'. and pretend to believe its teach
ings, tut in some States a majority of
the people still privately revolt against
the impartial distribution of political
power which is its essential idea. We
ure moving in the riylr direction, and
wi h every year men understand more
fully that our government was never
meant to rest and cannot safely rest
upon the intelligence, virtue, and patri
otism of any picked class of ciiizens, for
that is nn aristocracy a 'government
of the best" but ipon the wi'l of the
people. Lvents, we believe, will rap
idly hasten that change of opiuion.
When we see ";hat class," as Mr.
Glover says, "who by their virtue and
intelligence are competent to lead,"
rushing off almost unanimously in ten
S'ates into rebellion as suaidal as it
was causeless and wicked, while the
other class, not aristocrats, not "the
best so called, not deemed competent
to lead by Mr. Glover and others, re
mained faithful to a government which
had never lifted a finger to aid them,
or even to acknowleege them as citi
zens, then we begin to realize the
great truth that no class of men is so
virtuous, so intelligent, so proof against
all temptation, that it can safely be
trusted with unrestrained power over
other classes. That truih is the corner
stone of free institutions. If it is faKe.
free government u a failure, and aris
tocraty is the divinely appomted gov
ernment. If it is true, conservatism is
a blunder, and the people can be trust
ed more safely than any part of the
people. It is perfectly true that this
idea has not yet obtained complete
mastery. Ohio votes for an aristocra
cy. JJut when Napoleon conquered
at borodino he said, "One more such
victory would destroy mv army." If
216 9S4 votes are cast iu Ohio already
tor mannood suffrage, how many more
such victories can conservatism afford
to win?
The National Iniellig zncer has
found out a terrible secret. It says:
"From indications it would seem
that the Radicals will insist upon con-
iuing the session of the I ortieth
Con"Tes3 until its lewal termination
That is until the 4th of March, lsG9,
iNearly all the Republican members
who have lately visited tbo metropolis
encur in t!i pinion."

Editor Press: I find in your issue
of November 2d, that Messrs. J. F.'
President and J. W. Secretary of
Camp Creek, Farmer's Club are very
much exercised about my statement of
having raided and cribbed corn at nine
cents per bushel, and wish me to give
them the figures at the various stages,
and, be it remembered that was in
1562, and that I have not farmed but
a very litile since until this year; hav
ing rented almost entirely, until I was
rented out and was obliged to try mv
hand again on a small scale withsaiis
tactory results; I did all the labor my
self, i ired none, plowed and planted
ten acres, cultivated and cribbed in the
lime herein given:
4 days plowing. (2 1-2 acres per
day) at $2.50 per day, S10 00
I day harrowing, 2. 50
I day working, 2,50
112 days planting with hand
planter 3,00
8 days cultivating with double
shovel plow. 16,00
I plowed it over four times, five
acres per day
10 days cribbing at $2 or day, 20 00
Making in all, $54 00
My corn yielded 65 bushels per acre,
making ''50 bushels, and at nine cents
per bu-hel would be S5S.50, leaving
84.50 for cost of seed. wear, tear and
tax which in my estimation was suffi

As nn illustration of the way in
which the Democrats of New York
swelled their majorities, the following
facts, editorially made public by the
Tribune on the day before ihe recent
election, are worthy of notice:
"We have just seen a lot oi so-called
naturalization papers, which are such
miuht almost detect them. There are
three separate sijs natures purporting to
' be ihe name of James M. Sweeney,
Clerk of the Superior Court, and the
j mums are all written by different per
sons, probably neither of them by
Sweeney himself. In one iuMance
tlu man t.a uralized confesses that h
is only 19 y-arsoiti; another paper was
handed lo a fellow in the street, and
another was given out in a ruin shop.
One of the men says be has not been
fifteen months in the country. The
lower part of the city, especially the
Fourtli Ward, is flooded with runners,
who have dozens of such papers, end
who are on the lookout for anybody
who will take ihe risk of trying to reg
is er and vote the Democratic ticket on
the fraudulent documents "
The Chicago Times thinks it im
politic" to elect Vallandigham, whom it
calls a "martyr to violated law," io
the Senate at present. It says:
"Mr. Vallandigham should himself
see the situation as it is. His time is
not yet. It will probably come. Let
him wait unul he shall be called. Tne
Democracy will let him know at the
very first moment when it shall want
him."
The following is one of the school
essays, written by one tf the "young
sters" of Cairo, which was not publish
ed in ihe Tubht: "About dogs dogs is
usefuller as cats Mice is afeered of
mad cats. They bite 'cm. Dogs fol
lers boys and catches a hog by the ear.
Hogs rarely bite. People eats hogs
and not the Jews as they and all other
animals as doesn't chaw the cud isn't
clean one. Dogssum times gits hit
with bootjacks for barkin of nites.
Sleepy people git mad and throw 'em.
Dogs is the lest ao'mal for man. Tha
do more for man than ground hogs or
Koons or even goats. Goats smell.
The end."
Who hath gladness? Who hath
success? Who hath a growing busi
ness? Who paytth his notes promptly?
Who gaineth the confidence and pat
ronage of men, and raiseth to affluence?
He that advertised liberally, that
through the journals of ihe day maketh
himself acd his busir.-- known. He
hath choen the part i wisdom, and
his honor increaseth like the light of
the morning. His shadow groweth.
His complacency increaseih. His fame
extendeih His happiness endureth,
and he is honored and blessed of all
men. Ex.
