State Platform of the Republican
1. The Republicans of Nebraska most hear
tily endorse the profession of principles formu
lated by tho national republican convention at
Chicago, and pledge their unswerving aupport
to the candidates there nominated.
J. We afllrm that the doctrine ef national
sovereignty is the fundamental principle upon
which tho perpetuity of the nation rests, and
that the principle of homo rule as enunciated
by the democratic party is but the cautious ex
prossion of the Calhoun doctrine of state rights ;
is revolutionary in its character and destiuctire
to the unity of the nation.
S. Wo regard tlie recent seizure ef the polls
and wholesale robbery of the franchises of the
republican citizens of Alabama, by the demo
cratic officials, surpassing in the magnitude
and effrontery of the crime, all former efforts of
their party under tho Tweed plan in New York,
or the Mississippi plan In the toutli, as a fair
epseimeo of democratic methods, and a fore
taste of democratic dominance in national af
fairs, that should incite every honest man and
tax-payer in the country to tho most earnest
endeavor to defeat the party of brigandage and
fraud at the polls in November.
4. We have considered "what Lee and Jack
sen would do if they were alive," and have
determined to employ our best energies in
preventing the seizure of tii o national govern
nient by their living comrades through the
frauds of a "solid south."
5. we congratulate the people of the state
upon its rapid increase of population and wealth
and upon tho good measure of prosperity that
has rewarded their labor ; upon the rapid up
building ef our material interests since the suc
cess of resumption and the revival of trade.
6. We pledge our support to such legislation
la congress, and such measures by state legis
latures as may be necessary to effect a correc
tion of abuse?, and prevent extortionate dis
crimination in charges by railroad corporations.
T. We meet cordially inv ite the aid and co
operation in this defence of the nation's
integrity, and the nation's purse, of nil republi
cans and war democrats who have differed
with us on temporal y issues, or have clung to
a party name, hitherto honored and respected.

One of the
and most emit

held by the republicans took place
here on Tuesday.
Ex-Gov. Stone, literally one of the

Having been delayed by the train, and
the audience already detained long
enough, Mr. Valentine thought bsst to
make his speech short, but every word
was replete with good sense and hon

pleasant, cordial way made a very
good impression on our people; and
when ho spoke of Dr. Livingston as
an old comrade, and in the best of
temper hoped he would yet stand
shoulder to shoulder with his old com
rades he brought down the house.
While the Gleo Club were singing
Dr. Livingston came on th stage,
shook hands with Valentine and Gov.
Stone, and remained there while Ihe
Club and audience sang "Rally 'Round

It was a glorious meeting, a soul

went home rejoicing in his party, its

leading statesmen of the country for
the past twenty years, it would not be

"faith that is in me,
I am a repubh-

are now divided, because the Republi

the greatest good of the greatest num
ber of its citizens. There is not a pre
cinct in thi3 vast nation wheie a Dem
ocrat cannot cast his ballot, and have
it counted as cast, no matter what the
predominance of the opposite parly.
He can proclaim his political opinions,
even if he is one only among a thous

ality, so far as it can ccntrol.
The Democratic party does net
if it noes, it has broken its promise
ta the extent of hundreds of millions,
as many Northern Democrats can tes
tify to their sorrow.
I am a Republican as between exist
ing parties, because it fosters the pro
duction of the field and farm, and of
manufactories, and it encourages gen
eral education of the poor as well as
Tho Democratic party discourages
ah these wnen in absolute power.
The Republican party is a party of
progress and of liberality toward its
opponents. It encourages the poor to
strive to better their condition. The
ignorant to educate their children to
enable them to compete more success
fullv with their more fortunate asso
ciates, and, in fine, it'secures an entire
equality before the law of every citi
zen, no matter w hat his race, nation
ality, or previous condition. It toler
ates no privileged class ot men.
Every on has the opportunity to
make himself all he is capable of.
Ladies and gentlemen, do vou be
lieve this can be truthfully said in the
greater part of fourteen of the states
of this Union to-day, which the Dem
ocratic party control absolutely?
The Republican party is a party of
principles, the same principles prevail
ing wherever it has a foothold.
Ihe Democratic party is united in
but one thing, and that is in getting
control of the government in all its
branches. It is for internal improve
raent at tho expense of the govern
ment in one section and against this
in another. It favors repudition of
solemn obligations in one section and
honest payment of its debts in anoth
er (where public opinion would not
tolerate any other visw). It favors
fiat money in one place and good mon
ey in another. Finally, it favors the
"pooling of all issues" not favored by
the Republicans, to tho end that it
may secure the one principle upon
which the party is a caost harmonious
unit, namelv, gain:ng control of the
government in all its branches. I
have been in somo part of every State
lately in robellion within the last year
I was most hnspitablr received at
every place I stopped. My receptions
wero not by the I'nion class alone, but
by all classes, without distinction. I
had free talk with many who were
against us in the war, and who nave
bean against tho Republican party
ever since. They wcio in all instances
reasonable men, judged by what they
said. I believed then, and believe
now, that ther w.nnt a break-up in the
"solid south." They see that it is to
their pecuniary interest as well as to
their happiness that thera should be
harmony and confidence betw?an sec
tions. They want to break away from
the slavery which binds them to a par
ty name. Thay want a protext that
enough of them can unite uoon to
make it respectable. Once started, the
solid south will go as kukluxism did
before, as is so admirably told by
Judge Tnurgeo in his "Fool'a Errand."
When tho break comes, those who
start it will bo surprised to find how
many of their friends have been in
favor of it for a long time, and have
only been waiting for seme one to
takb the lead. This desirable solution
can only be obtained by the defeat,
and continued defeat, of tho Demo
cratic party as now constituted."

The Voyage Across the Atlantic.
Stalham neau Norwich, i
Enulani, Sept. 1G, lbSO. )
Ed. Herald: I am now about to
f uliill aiy promise, of giving you a brief
account el tho voyage across the briny
deep. About :45 a. ui. of tho
day of August A. D. I860, I,
about 175 iellow passengers, ef all
ages and both soxes, embarked at Now
York, en the ateam Ship "ticythia" of
the Cunard Line, bound for the Old
World. The "Scythia" is a screw
Bteamer four hundred anel fifty-two
fset long, fifty-two feet wide, and
draws twenty-four feet of water, so it
can be easily understood that a few
trips around this ship would give a
person an appetite for meals. I was in
formed by ono of tho firemen of tho
ship that bar average daily consump
tion of coal was scveuty-Jlve tons. Puuct
ally at 8 o'clock the gong sounded
"all aboard" the gangway was with
drawn and the dock tender towed the
mighty "Scythia" into mid stream,
turned her half round and then roturn
ingto assist some other ocean steamer
inlike manner. The bell of the 'Scythia
rang, the steam was applied to the
ponderous machinery and wo start on
our journey, with prow pointed to tho
far East. U'o passed Sandy Iloak,
Coney Ishtnd and other places of in
terest near New York. Just as we
were oppesitc Coney island an inci
dent occurred which will bo remem
bered by the passengers and crew of
ur ship for many years. We had no
ticed ahead of us a small steaia pleas
ure yacht such as ply between New
York and Sandy Hook and other pla
ces, we soon overhauled her and found
ner aecus crowded witn persons,
doubtless pleasure seekers, who com
menced waving their hats, handker
chiefs, and umbrellas at us,
wero right cordially responded to in
like manner by U3. This was kept up
for some timo by both sides, when
finding that she was fast losing ground
(or water rather) tho little 'Standard"
(for that was tha name of tho yacht)
gave three short blasts of her whistle in
token cf farewell, which was respond
ed to by the hearse whistle of the
"Seyihi.v" I should hav stated be
fore, however, that ere the gallant lit
tle "Standard" bade us "good bye"
ona of her passengers, a tall man with
u large umbrella yelled out: "Three
enters for the passengers and crew of
the "Scythia, may she have a prosper
ous voyage." There went up such
cheers as I hardly ever heard before,
and the tall man with ;tho largo um
brella frantically swung his hat and
nourished his umbrella as if his whole
soul was in that cheering. Then one
of our passengers yelled out "Three
cheers for the gallent littlo "Standard"
may her passengers and crew live long
and be happy." As ons man the pas
sengers and crew responded, and ice
think the first four miles around must
have trembled, but be that as it may,
the above token of kindness was fre
quently referred to during our voyage
with feelings of pleasure. Abost 2
o'clock p. m. ef the first day of the
voyage a dense cloud commenced to
rise in the North which soon covered
the whole Northern sky. presently the
cloud assumed a greenish hue, which
is generally in Nebraska the precursor
of a terrible wind storm. Tho Cap
tain ordered the sail to be taken in on
the "double quick" and the ropes all
hauled tight and snug. Presently we
could see the waves in the distance
commence rolling higher than usnal,
capped with white foam. As in Ne
braska, we had no caves or cellars to
take refuge in, all we could do was to
hope to be left "right side up, with
care." We were not to be kept long
in suspense, for in an instant tho
storm was upon us. The wind whis
tled and howled through the manifold
ropes, the mighty ship groaned and
trembled for a few seconds and tho
worst was over, for the wind soon
subsided, and in a few minutes tho
sun was shining again as bright as
ever. The first day out wa met two
or three ocean steamers bound for
Now York laden with emigrants go
ing to try their fortunes in the New
world, and hardly a day packed but we
either overtook or met steamships or
sailing vessels bound for almost all
parts of the world. The ofiieers and
crew of tho "Scythia" were all gentle
manly and agreeable, answering all
questions regarding nautical affairs
that were constantly being asked them
by the pasaengera, with cheerfulness.
The sacond day out, the sea commenc
ed to roll fairly, and reminded us
that we were now on the wide, wide
ocean. Tho passengers thia day could
bo seen in evory direction clinging to
the pillars and every available object
with extreme and affecting tendernesa,
for seasickness was now in order. I
could not viow the scene without be
ing amused in somo instancos and sor
ry in othera. I never Lad tho misfor
tune to bo aeasick or perhaps I might
fce unable to see where the amusement
eamo in. V e had no very severe cabes
of seasickness, however, and soon tho
passengers wore able to enjoy them-
Sanday morning dawned in coursa
of time, bright and clear. After break
fast, those who felt so dispased, re
paired to tho main dining roora, when
the captain read the prayers of tho
Chuich of England, soma chanting
and winging was done, a young lady
passenger presided at tho piano. This
waa called church. The cerecaoniea
occupied about an hour. On week
dar evenings, in fair weather, the sail
ors would assemble together and sing
aongs, wuicli wore frequently listen
ed to by tho passengers, and often tha
passengera would join in with them
in singing and have a good timo gen

the tida preventing the "Scythia" from
going into tho deck at the time. We
wore soon transferred to the tender
Lag and baggage. After every thing
was all in readinesa we move steadily
at first from the gigantic snip and as
we did so one of our number proposed
three cheers for the "Scythia" and hor
crow, "these were given with a will,
and responded to by tho crew in a
manner that muat have shaken the ves
sel from stem to stern. Now as we
steam fast toward Liverpool, al
though pleased at tho idea of again
treading terra firma, yet we were sad
to have to part company true wo had
only been togetnor a few hours over
ten days, yet we had formed an ac
quaintance in that short time, which
it would have been an impossibility to
have formed in ten tiaaea that length
of time on land. Ono old man, as he
shook hands with mo at parting, actu
ally wept, saying that he should over
remember the voyage across the At
lantic as one of the pleasanteat scenes
of his life. At about 9 o'clock that
night, having had our baggage insptct-
ed by tho Custom IIouso oQieers, wo
were permitted to taka our departure,
and so we arrived safely in tho groat
noisy city of Liverpool.
Louisville, Oct. 4, 'SO.
Dear Herald: -Our political hori
zon is less studded with greenbackers
thau in former campaigns. This is
perhaps accounted for by the numer
ous republican sprouts in this vicini
ty. The occasional rains this fall have
been detrimental to ths hay makers
considerable, and we fear a shortness
of that crop. Corn is coming in very
moderately. C. W. King has a fine
large stock of lumbar on hand, from
which the farmers are wisely selecting
for the sheltering of their stock and
crops. Shipping has been remarkably
light so far. Quite a number f our
farmers are feeding cattle this winter,
which we think is a very profitable
way of disposing of their mammoth
fields of corn. During September
there were 24 cars of cattle shipped in
to be fed. Merchandising has been
unusually brisk this fall. Our mer
chants are carrying large and well se
lected stocks, and are crowded with
customers continually. The following
statistics we get through the kindness
of our friend Teman, and shows the
receipts at this station during tho
month of September only:
Lumber la car loads, coal 2 carload?,
cattle 24 car loads, merchandise 13 car
loads, wagons 1 car load, agricultural
implements 2 car loads.
Of the above Wcoping Water ro
ceived little over one third. We need
a first class hardware storo and tin
shop here very much. More anon,

The Whisky Sellers' CoiiTentien.
The whisky sellers ef this state held
a convention in this city last week,
and were present in quite large num
bers. The main purpose was to in
cite concerted political action, in or
der to secure tha repeal of what little
legislation tho people have been able
to obtain for the protection of them
selves, and to prevent the ruin f their
children at the hands of these men.
It will be observed that the saloon
keepers are at all times ready to fore
go their partisanship in order to pro
mote the interest of whisky selling.
Temperance men and church men
should learn a lesson from this. May
or Harrison was introduced to this
body of poverty and crime makers,
and made himself ridiculous by ut
tering the following sentiments :
"He said that a man could oat so
much as to make a glutton of himself
and to become a nuisance to hi3 neigh
bors. He might dnnic so ranch water
as to make himself a bad husband, an
unkind father, and an undesirable
Other things equally absurd fallow
ed, jjui JUayor Harrison ever know a
man to eat enough or drink water
enough to cause him to rush out of a
saloon and stab another to the heart,
as has been done in this city more
than once? Or to go home and roast
ms ciiiiu on a stove, as was done by a
drunken man in this state not long
ago?. Or brain his wife with a chair,
as is a frequent event? We are hard
ly able to determine whether our May
or, in tnese remarks, was sarcastic or
in earnest: Ho would scarcely, hovr-
ever, venture on sarcasm with men
whose favor ho was endeavoring to se
cure, and for whose votes he was pan
dering. But that the chief Magistrate
of a cily of half a million inhabitants
uhou d be guilty of tho consummate
folly manifested in the utteranco of
such sentiments, is a disgrace to his
constituency. These men are here to
protect their business, one of continu
ous loss and ruin to the communi
ty, wherever it exists. It costs the
people of Chicago alone in the expense
of police, criminal prosecutions, and
through the county agent, the county
hospital, and the poor-house, and pri
vate charity to drunkards' families, at
least a million dollars a year to meet
the inherent and inevitable results of
this business. The Mayor is made
aware of about one homicide a week,
besides innumerable ther outrages
upon person and property, traceable,
as eiTect to cause, to tho saloons. And
yet nas tne community no rights in
Hp's matter no right to protect its
members from tha outrage and vio
lence, and theii property from confis
cation through this business? People
form organizations to protect their
property from the bnsiness of horst
thief; they form vigilance committees
to protect their persons from the busi
ness of cut throat and banditti. Have
they net the same right to insist upon
the protection of their peisons from
the banditti of the saloons, and from
having their property taken away from
them to pay the public expenses of the
whisky business? Have they not a
right to legal protection ? Or must
the protection be all on the side of the
destroyers ? Chi'-ayo fitaiulard.
The Evening Journal in speaking
of Ld wards county in this state, no-
ticas another characteristic for which
it is singular and distinguished from
all the other counties. It savs that
"tho property owners have got into
the very Ksnsible and ce-mrnendabla
habit of paying thtir taxes promptly

past year, recently published in one of
the local papers, consisted onlv of 111

and promptness is the same that pro
duces other resulia alike creditable.

or other place for selling liquor with

Absoluts prohibition prevails. It has
not sent a prisoner to tho penitentiary
for thirty-two year3. The Clerk states
that the calendars of its courts are

and criminal docket. The people are

above fact shows, a thrifty people,
ready to meet promptly their public
and private obligations. ould. that
the people ef all the counties would
learn wisdom by such an example of
the working of prohibition. It would

of the state three-fourths, and save.
