also noticed, especially by th ladies,
that the atinot-phere was more pure and
invigorating than what we had breathed

From the Winamao Democrat, we ex

Uut we cannot longer dwell upon this
part of our journey, an 1 we now find
ourselves at l'lattsiuouth, Nebraska, j
two hnnired and sixty-se ven miles from j
Burlington. Our rea-fors will remember ;
that the town is at tho mouth of I'iatte j
river, and it is here that the railroad j

well entertained what time we spent in

we clip from the Daily llcruhl ; it-is
highly complimentary to our party, and
we are almost provoked to thank the

We wo il l be iilea.-ed to notice more

up in a low words or we would never pet

The under-isrned. your memorialists,
re.-pectfuily demand that in the coiis-i-futuin
now being framed, provision -.hall
be made for extending to females, pre
cisely as to males, the right of .-ulfiage.
In support of this demand, we respect
fully submit trie following propo-iii ois :
1st. IJy lle fourteenth amendment to
the con-tli uti el of the United States,
the complete ciiizoii-hip of females, as
well as males, is declared : and by the
fifteenth amendment the right of citizen
to vote is distinctly affirmed.
"d. Females are governed exactly as
males. To do this without their con-cut
ii unju-t. The only method of declar
ing sueli assent is tl: rough the ballot
iid. F onales are taxed in all re-pects
as males. -presentation as a
corollary to tin., liability is demanded ly
principles lying at the very foundjtiou of
ltepuliiii-an gove) nu.etit-,
id). Negri es have been elevated from
the degradation of .-l.iveiy to tiie plane
of respectable citizcuship-hy the ballot,
and it is universally concede. I that the
cause of civilization and Kepunliean gov
ernment has b.v. ii a ivaiieed thereby.
In our opinion, the mothers, wive- and
si.-teis c.f the ?tare are no le.-s wot thy
the privilege of complete citizenship.
5th. Lunatics, idiots and children,
by reason ot immature intellect, togeth
er with -uch persons as are convicted of
infamous crime, are excluded from the
piivtleges of the ballot. U'e deem it an
indignity, illy deserved, by females ex
empt from these disabilities, to be placed
irrevocably and by constitutional law in
this ciitegoiy of incompetent per.-ons and
0th. Emigrants from 'the old world,
never admitted fo the light of sniiraiie
i.i their n-itivo country and wholly un
u-eJ to the contemplation of matters of
governmental concern, are allowed the
privileges of the ballot six month- after
landing on our shores. A recog ntt'on
of the Miperiority of the.-e to the in -1
li.g nt r.atix e born women of the -tate

resolution in the Constitutional Conven

tend to obtain a full and fair expression
of the opinic-us and wi-he- of the fe

doubt, eminently proper:
"That the question of female suffrage
in this State .-hail be ioei.icJ by the fe
males alone ; and th right of female to
vote in t!r;s Slate shall be submitted to
them as a separate proposition by the
County Com'mis.-ioiiei s in each eouuty in

each rccinct and ward, who-e duty it
shall be to visit each family in their pre
cinct or ward, and regi-ter the name and
vote of each female member thereof on
the proposition of female, sufirage, and
that each female shall have the privi

having been a .-ub-i.-ting honie.-tead on
the land when the right of the Bailroad
Company attached, that on the subsequent-
abaiidonmi ii of ihe homestead,
the land reverted to the Government and
not to the Company; and therefore it
