dent of the Uiiited States of America,
"Each State shall appoint, in such man
ner as the Legislature thereof may
direct, a number of electors equal to
the whole number of Senators nnd
Representatives to which the State may
be entitled in the Congress;" and
Whereas, incident to the recent .ad
mission of Nebraska into the Union,
the manner in which said electors shall
be appointed, has not yet been prescrib

Now, therefore, that the citizens of
this State may exercise their high nd
sacred privilege in the approaching

wisdom shall deem best.
In testimony whereof

of October, A. D , 1863.

The Democracy of Kentucky are
disheartened and disgusted with the
course pursued by their northern allies,
and they now favor the withdrawal of
all Democratic candidates from before
the people and oppose substituting
others in their stead (even Dorm and
Mickelwai ). They say they are
willing to trust to the known honesty of
Gen. Grant in the administration of
affairs. The car of "Progress" is
rolling on, and the men who attempt to
impede it will yet acknowledge its pow
er even as these Kentucky Demo
crats do.
Can any one tell us what ticket tie
Democrats have been working fordur
ing the past week, or what ticket they
expect to vote on the third of Novem
oerf mej are certainly in a very
pretty muddle, and the only way we
can see for them to get out is for them
to come out for the man who saved our
Country U. S. Grant and see if
they dont feel ever after like they had
done one noble act which ihey can re
fer to with honest pride the remainder
of their live. Try it once. The no
blest feeling which any man can have
is a consciousness that he has done
We notice in several of our demo
cratic exchanges, since the election
statements to the effect that "money"
was the cause of the radicals majorities.
We do not think this very complimen
tary to the people, especially to demo
crats ; for it is, in substance, an accu
sation that democrats sold themselves
for money. It is saying, in effect, that
members of that party are for sale. In
behalf of the democracy, we must say
that we do not endorse the slander,
neither do we think democratic journals
should be so hard on the poor fellows
who labor we doubt not many of them
honestly in such a hopeless minority.
'They have labored hard to elevate such
ungrateful men as Miller and Moiton ;
and now, because they have not the
numerical strength to accomplish their
desires, they are accused; in tbe house
of their friends," with' selling their
votes to radicals. The only instance
we know of where money was attempt
ed to be used in this locality, was on
the morning of election ; and that was
by a democrat who proposed to a cer
tain: individual in this city to bring him
& ticket nnd two dollars and fifty cents
if he would vete it. The said individ
ual spumed the proposition with the
scorn it deserved, and we don't believe
that democrat attempted to rurefaa.e
aj:y o'.her Republicans vote. j
Some one we dou't know whether
or not it was our "confiJeDiial" friend
musNbave written to Seymour & Co
about lhe success of the "Kangaroo
ticket" in this county ; for they have
already commenced to talk about in
augurating the thing on a big scale by
withdrawing Seymour and Blair and
putting up Chase and Adams. Go in,
gentlemen; it won't make any differ
ence in the result. Grant and Colfax
are just as certain of being elected as
that the sun will rise on the morning
of Nov. 3d. If it will make you feel
any better to vote for Chase and
Adams, why, do it.
Remember that the Registration
looks are opened again on Monday
and Tuesday of the week preceding
the Presidential election, at which tune
all persons who were not registered for
the October elections, but who are en
titled to vote for President, should ap
pear before the board. It is not con
sidered necessary that those who voted
at the rec-tnt election should be regis
tered again,but the books are only open
ed for corrections. Should any person
know of legal reasons why any one
who voted at the recent election should
not be entitled to vote, it is their duty
to appear before the registrar with his
complaint otherwise the old registra
tion is valid for the November election
We have just gained an overwhelm
ing victory over the enemies of R "pub
lican Goverment, but every true man
should stand by the guns until afttrthe
3d of November, whvn we will have
caused a complete route and stampede
among the enemy Do not think be
cause we have swept everything before
us that tde battle is over. The democ
racy are fighting a desperate fight no
less a stake being at issue than the
overthrow or maintenance of a free-
government and they will take ad
vantage of our carelessness should we
exhibit any. Stand firm, then, and
pres3 them close on every side. Let
us rather redouble our efforts, and the
last hope of the slave-driving democra
cy will be wiped out on the 3d of next
month, and peace will reign throughout
the land. "Let us have peace "
Th-J telegrams for the put week
have been filled with report of vapous
kinds in regard to the wiihdrau-iil of
Seymour and Blair from tl.e Piesiden
tial campaign. It h;. be-en difficult
determine what would be done, as one
report would say the Commuter was in
consultation, and iht i.ext one wou'd
say the whole movement wa gotten i-p
by the New York World. From pre?
eat indications we think there will be
no change made in the ticket, although
it has been strongly urged by many
leading men in the party and is only
prevented through a settled belief iha
tha party are certain of defeat in any
event, and may as well be defeated
with the present candidates as any oih
The latest news from the Democrat
National Committee is to the effect
that Seymour nnd Blair are to Le with
drawn and J. E. Doom nnd W. Mick
elwait brought out in their stead. We
would not give this report credence did
we not know the proclivities of these
gentlemen for "split tickets." As it is,
we can hardly believe "our eyes de
ceive our earight." Look out for that
kind of ticket on the 3rd cf November.
As Doom has nodesire for official hon
ors, but does all for "harmony," he
suggested the ram? of AniyTayo
but Taylor "could 'm see it," and Doom
has "confidentially" consented to let his
name be used rather than see the coun

Have issued an address requesting the
withdrawal of Seymour and Blair in
favor of Chase and Franklin. These
southern men saw things more clearly
in the beginning of the campaign than
did their nor;hrn advisers. They saw
that the attempt t.i carry water on both
shoulders could not succeed, and favor
ed an out-and-out policy of some kind
They were favorably inclined towards
Chase and universal suffrage, but were
willing to take Vallandigham and a
"white man's government." They
saw that th'y must either have the ne
gro vote or the united rebel vote, and
consequently favored ultra grounds on
which ever side they cast their fortunes
hence the alacrity with which they
seized Blair and revolution after it was
decided not to take Chase and negro
suffrage. The boplessness of the dem
ocratic party is fully evinced in the fact
that these southern leaders are now
willing to fofsake Blnir and revolution
for Chase and whatever policy they
can coax or force him to agree to.
The President has issued a procla
mation appointing Dec 2G Thanksgiv

Mr. Gaylord J. Clarke left this city
last week for Texas, where he will set
tle if the political horizon looks aus
picious. He came to thi9 place not
quite two years since, and during his
residence here he created more
trouble in the Republican party
than all other men who ever did live
here. So far as we know, the Repub
licans of Cass county always "pulled
together" for the cause of right until
the advent of Mr. Clarke ; and he im
mediately set about sowing the seeds of
discord. Well, he has gone ; and
whether the seed he has sown will yet
bear fruit, remains to be seen. We
think not, however; we hope and trust
Mr. Clarkes' efforts to divide the Re
publican party has not so far blinded
any true man as to cause h;m to con
tinue in the track of this great discr
gnnizer. We fear Mr. Clarke takes a
wrong view of political matters, ar.d
one which we should d if like very much
to see prevalent, or even entertnined
by any man in position. Unless we
are very much mistaken, his idea of
politics is that the "spoils" of office is
abjut all there is to it, and that politi
cal principles are but a pretext to ob
tain the spoils. Such views are dan
gerous to the Republic ; and we there
fore earnestly hope the seed sown by
Mr. Clarke in this locality will not ger

The telegraph brings us the news
that the Democracy of the East are de
moralized and dismayed by the result
of th recent elections in Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Indiana and Nebraska, and that
they even talk about withdrawing Sey
mour and Blair from before the people.
They find that there is enough of loy
alty left in this government to repudi
ate any set of men who dare to threat
en forcible resistance to law, and
who dare to threaten the dishonor of
the nation by repudiating her contracts
made when the was sore pressed by
the armed wing of this same Demo
cratic party. They may withdraw Sey
mour and Biair. and do what else they
please; it will avail nothing. They
have phown what their real intent is.
ind ibe fiat has gone forth that Grant
,hall be our next President. No twist
mg. squirming or wriggling of the sca
y monger of modern Democracy can
'hangethe result. There are thous
ands of men in the land who have long
been deceived by the wily and p!au?a
11 nf.-ertioris of the Democratic lead
ers, and iht-y might have been deceiv
ed nsraiu hnd not those leaders thought
they had thun fast in the metbes. But
he stales have fallen from their eyes,
nnd henceforth the leaders of that par
y stand lefore them in all the hideous
ness of their true character enemies
of their government and enemies of all
that is true, just and noble
The unanimous verdict of Pennsyl
vania, Ohio, Indiana and Nebraska
against the po'icv of the democratic
party is not the only cause of the de
moralizaiion of the leaders, for we do
not believe intelligent democrats ever
expected auv other result in these
States. But we beleive the great se
cret of the weakening exhibited by the
democratic backers lies in the fact that
thousands of honest democrats intend to
quietly vote for Grant and Colfax, be
lieving that through their election
alone can peace and quiet be restored
lor our distracted country. We know
of many who view the matter in this
light, and who will vote for Gant and
Colfax without claiming to be Republi
cans. This fact is as well known to
the democratic Jeaders as anyone else.
hence the great desire to do something
ta preven it. It cannot be prevented,
however, for the men who have now
made "bp their mtnds to vote for Grant
and Colfax are not going to be drifted
about by any political breeze that may
be raised at this late day. They have
seen the ship of State almost stranded
on the sunken rocks of democratic re
bellion.and tiity will stand by the brave
man who saved her from tbis fate un
til she is once more entirely free from
the whirlpool of secession and rebel
lion. It is no use talking about Chase,
Adams, Hancock, Hendricks.McLeilan
or Johnson now ; the people have had
a look behind the democratic screen,
and know the monster there secreted.
They know that Hampton, Forest.
Vance, Semmes, Cobb, and others
speak the sentiments of the riding pow
er in the democratic party, and that
soft words and professions of loyalty
are only intended as bait to draw the
people within the meshes of democratic
rebellion, no matter who are the candi
dates of the party. It tuakes but little
difference who their party candidates
are, or what professions they make ; it
is the power behind the throne which
shapes the course of the democratic
party, and the honest people of ihe na-1
tion know it. t
It is a universally conceded principle,
in all parties, that no true roan will at
tempt to defeat his party ticket, es-pec
ially if that ticket has been fairly and
honestly selected by a majority of the
party representatives in convention as
sembled. This principle is a pany ne
cessity ; for without its existence party
organizations and party principles may
be held subject to the caprice of per
sonal likes or dislikes. And it is also
a party necessity that when men do
"boll" an honestly and fairly nomi
nated ticket, and endeavor to hoist into
power men of the opposite paity, they
should be held to a rigid accountability,
and .;ver after be sharply watched , for
it is fair to presume that their style of
politics considers self of more import
ance than party principles, and that
they stand ready to sell out the princi
pies of their party at any time when
?lf can be served by so doii g. We
wocld not be understood, by this, to
mean that any rascal who can intrigue
to secure a majority or the votes ot a
convention shou'd be supported without
question, because we deem it essential
that that class ot men should always be
kept out of power. But the tune nnd
place to oppose men who are thought to
be unworthy to represent the party and
the people is in ihe convention. We
hold that any man, whether he is a del
egate or not, has the right to l&y before
a convention his objections to a candW
date ; and we also hold that n man is
true to his party who will attempt the
defeat of its candidates fnihuui first
haviug boldly proclaimed his objections
before the nominating convention, and
not then uuless those c bjecjions are
something more than personal they
are not valid reasons for electing a per
son of opposite political views unless
they show conclusively that the party
again-t whom they are urged is lo'ally
unfit to represent the party; and when
this is done, we think no convention of
intelligent men would persist in keep
ing a candidate before the people.
When any considerable number of the
voters in auy party become di sati?fied
with the nominations made, they hive
the right and it is probably their duty
-to appeal to the proper source to have
a change made. But they have no
right, as supporters of a principle, to
secretly set about the defeat cf the nom
inees and to elect men entertaining
views entirely different. We say they
have no right to do this and ft ill rlnim
to be supporters of tLe principles of
the parly whose nanif they claim.
Men may change their views m regard
to parties, but they Mm it id have man
liuess enough to come out and pro
clai n the change, and not endeavor to
play the Judis. We lay down these
views at th's time because we have the
question to meet right here at home, and
we propose to meet it boldly. We wish
to speak now, while the subject is fresh
in the minds of the people, and we en
deavor to speak calmly. If we are
right, we ark the Republicans of Cass
to stand by the doctrines we here ad
vocate no: only now, but for all time
to come ; and whenever any man claim
ing to be a Republican attempts the de
feat of the ticket, or any portion of it,
by plotting with our political enemies,
we ask the Republicans of Cass to con
sign him to that politicul infamy he so
richly deserves. It is well known that
an effort was made at ihe recent elec
lion to defeat a portion of the Republi
can ticket, by covert and unfair mean?,
and at least one of the individuals
who "plowed with the heifer" of de
mocracy to accomplish this result was
a prominent but disappointed candidate
before the Republican nominating con
vention. It is well known that the name
of one of the most ultra copperheads in
the county, was placed on a ticket headed
''Republican ticket," and that the name
of a man who had served his coun
try honorably and faithfully on the field
of battle was taken off to make room
for it, and that this disappointed office
' seeker worked for the success of this
mongrel concern and at the same time
claimed to le a Republican. May an
all wise power, which loves truth, jus
tice, humanity and liberty principles
of the Republican parJy look well to
the party if such men are allowed to
have a haud in its management. It is
ihis class of njen who bring just reproach
upon any party, and the sooner (he
people of Cass spew them out from
party politics the better. A? to those
few individuals who voted this "bolters"
arrangement with honest intent and
we have reason to believe someot them
were honest, but were misled by de
signing demagogue? we have only to
say. judge for yourselves h-reafter, and
be not induced to vote against your
principles by the representations of men
who rare nothing for principle but all
for telf and pary pi!s.

Mr. Editor: Amidst all the strife,
uproar and endless isms ar d schemes
of parlies, political and otherwise, let
us turn our attention a moment to the
condition of Ca?s county. Wny is the
great tide of emigration, now entering
our county, passing through it, instead
of stopping among us ? Why are there
so many continuous miles of uncultiva
ted and uninhabited prairie, as gocd as
can be found in the State, yet in our
county ? Why are the wolf and bad
ger the only denizens in so large a por
tion of our best lands ? Why is agri
culture thus crippled ? Why are emi
grants pushing awuy from our county ?
Why are school so dtvarfed ? I it
becau e speculators will not sell their
isnds ? No. Is it because agricultural
products find no market? No. Nei
ther nor all of these causes taken to
gether are the cause. The reason is,
we ned a Herd Law There is not
timber in this county to fence the un
fenced portion ipveu if ihi owners of it
would sell but on the tht-r hand
they will not sell. How then can we
expect to see ihese extenive scopes of
prairie ever brought iiro cultivation
without the aid of a herd Uw? Examine
for a iiiomoni, Mr. Eiitor, what ii will
co.-l an emigrant to purchase fence and
erect a house on a quarter sect. on of
thi "raw prairie ' as it is ca'led. Fir1
the latid at So per acre is SSOO ; then
the breaking of a portion, say 50 acres.
at SI per acre is $-00 more ; then the
cost of a small cabin $300 in ire ; and
last comes the fencing. Th cost of
fencing a quarter section of land wrh
posts and wire, (providing he can get
the posts) is $.500, exclusive of the la
bor of building it, m iking an aggregate
of SlSOO before the poor emigrant can
begin to live. Now had we a herd law
erery one can see how much of this ex
pense would be aved to the emigrant.
Hence the conclu-ion is evident, that
emigrants of small means are compelled
to go beyond this county for homs.
How many of the early settlers of this
county landed here with SlSOO lo in
vest in real estate ? These lauds were
cheap even at second hand; but now
the price of lands places the possession
of a farm beyond the reach of many
who come here for homes, and who are
as well provided with means as hun
drcds of those who came here in an
early day and art now in affluent cir
cumstances. Let this mate of affairs
continue a few years longer and what
will we see ? We will see the most
populous part of our county in the west,
where a few precincts have herd laws;
we will see our court bouse in the west
of the coumy in.-tead of on the river ;
we will see the best of .he trade float
ing off to Omaha and Nebraska City
instead of going to Plattsmouth ; we
will see heavier taxes in this county
than in those counties where emigrants
are eucouraged to settle under the pro
tection of a herd law. Pass the herd
law, build up the schools, lighten the
taxes, increase the wealth, enterprise
aud resources of the county, give men
homes instead of wolves and badgers,
let Plattsmouth double in population
and business, lei the products of so
many thousand acres of virgin prairie
find their way to the banks of the Mis-

to destroy the government are rallying
