JOSEPH DYSON, President.
W. II. Cook, Secretary.
f:jy The President's Message, on ac
count of the irregularity of the mails, has
not yet reached us. We think that the
I'ost Master (icnerol should inquire into
the causes of these delays, as they ore
extremely annoying to our business men.
If a slight fall of snow visits us, or a cold
day, the mail does not make its appear
ance at all, hut waits till the snow is gone
or a warm day comes, and even then one
half of the mail matter due does not come
to hand, as the arrangement was only
made for a small mail, nobody could for
u moment think that the contractors would
bring a large one, as it might injure the
very valuable stock employed on the dif
ferent routes leading to this point. Wo
do hope that the department will look to
tins matter, or else our citizens will have
to petition to higher powers.
We understand that T.J. Boykix, M.
D., intends opening a large stoc k of Drugs
and Medicines in our city, the coining
Spring. Such an establishment is much
needed in our community, and we have no
hesitation in saying that the Dr.'s efforts
will be crowned with success.
We had the pleasure of a Visit
from Hon. J. A. STEiwnrHGER.of Elkhorn
City, and W. J. Foster, Esq., of Council
Bluffs, yesterday afternoon. Mr. S. is a
young man of much energy and ability,
and with a good and true heart always
makes friends wherever ho goes. We
congratulate the Northern District of
Douglas in their choice of so good and
worthy a representative.
0" Notwithstanding the recent cold
spell, the people still flock to Bellevue.
Among the late arrivals we are glad to
notice that of Mr. S. II. Wattles, and
family, from Michigan. A few more such
additions, is all that is necessary to com
plete our beautiful city.
This paper, so long a welcome friend
to us, canio to hand on Saturday last, and
looks as well as ever. The Major under
stands the wants of his patrons, and his
valuable sheet is welcome where're it goes,
and particularly in this land where the
sun goes down.
Our citizens are at present regaling
themselves on Venison, Prairie Chickens,
Turkeys, &.C., which are universally plenty
this season. We assisted materially at
destroying sundry portions of a very fine
Turkey, served up in excellent style at the
Benton House on Sunday last, and can
assure the epicures of the country that the
folks of that establishment understand
serving up such articles.
Awfully Sudden Death.
The New Orleans papers announce the
death of Judge John C. Lable, of that
city. The Picayune says :
" The manner of his death was awfully
sudden. His wife had been indisposed,
and he remained home to keep her com
pany. He lay on a low sofa, quite well
and uncommonly cheerful. She reclined
along the floor, leaning on his shoulder,
his arm about her the child on the sofa
playing with its father.. Suddenly the
little girl asked abruptly, " Papa, what
makes your eyes roll so ?" and with a con
vulsive stretch he said to his wife, " My
uarimg, i am dying! JNot unused to
spasms of illness, she answered, " Don't
dear don't frighten me so." " I tell you"
he replied with an emphasis, " I am dying!"
She started to get restoratives; he said,
"No, no let me die in peace!" when
his face recovered a smiling expression,
his Junbs relaxed, and he breathed but
two or three times again. The shrieks
of his wife and child alarmed the house
and neiffhborhood'; but all efforts of resu-
sciation failed. From fullness of life to
torpid death the interval wns scarcely five
Judge La hi e was a native of New
Jersey. "He came out to New Orleans
about tweiuy-two or three years ago. and
was engaged for some time as tutor in a
family. He worked at one time as a
printer, and early connected himself with
the press in an editorial capacity."

had been for two years engaged to be

since, and his physician observing that liis
illness was partly the result of melancholy
elicited on inquiry, the above facts.
Whereupon he recommended that the
marriage be at once solemnized. It was
done ; and in twenty minutes after, the

The Tribune for 1857.
The Election is past, and Its result proves ;
that the work devolved on the Republican
party is not yet completed. In all the East
ern and Northern portions of the country in
New-England, New-York, Ohio and the North
West, the Republican banner floats in tri
umph ; while in Southern Jersey, Pennsylva
nia, Indiana and Illinois in short, wherever
grogshops more abound than school-houses.
ami whore- common schools are too new and j
too feeble to have educated the present gen-:
oration of voters the black flag of Slavery j
obstructs the sunshine. A stranger to Ame- '
rica might distinguish those portions of our
country most blessed with Education, Intelli
gence, "Tlirift and Virtue, by scanning the re
turns of the Presidential contest of lS5rt. We
have failed of present success, not because
the people are against us, but because that
large portion who did not hear or read the ar
gument, and do not know what were the real
questions at issue, went almost solid against
us, reversing the verdict which the great ma
jority of the educated and intelligent en
deavored to pronounce.
These facts indicate the path of pressing
duty. With no unmanly repining over what
is irrevocable with no abatement of heart or
hope because the triumph of Liberty in her
new ordeal is not won at the Long Island and
White Plains of her struggle with no shadow
of regret 1 hut the responsibility of governing
is not confided to her champions before the
People were fully ready to sustain them we
begin afresh the' work of diffusing that vital
truth which, in regard to the concern of this
world as wll of the next, mks Free ju-
deoj. New, in the Slave Powoi'a heyday of
victory, when Its m!iiiter and servitors nie
gatliciiiig and plotting to make the most of
their triumph and crush out'' the spirit
which they vainly believe to be crucified and
entombed now,' when the faint-hearted or
cold-liourlod who lately basked in the sun
shine of our premature hopes are hauling off
to repair damage and talking of abandoning
the rugged arena of Politics for more quiet
and flowery fields now, in (hi hour of wear
iness and shadow, Tn r. Tsisrsr. renews its
vows of otorn.il hostility to everv form of ty
ranny over the bodies orsouls of men to the
shameful assumption that the benighted and
feeble, whether ill soul or body, are to be re
garded nnd treated as the convenience or the
prey of t heir iscr or stronger brethren to the
domination of despots and oligarchs, whether
of empires or plantations to the enslavers of
cities and kingdoms In Europe or the breeders
ol children for llie auction-block and the cot-ton-ticld
in Virginia or Alabama.
The doctrine that no human being was ever
created for the benefit or advantage of an
other that nil service between man and man
should be free and reciprocal that the labor
er should not toil anil sweat to pamper others'
pride or minister to others' luxury, but for the
sastenance and comfort of those hoar ami dear
to him is destined to certain triumph. It
mi-st prevail, for God reigns, and Earth was
not created to be a theatre of injustice, op
pression Hint misery forever. It must tri
umph ; for all true prophecy affirms ami the
vindication ol the Divine benignity impera
tively require it. It mcst (riumpli ; for De
mocratic America cannot always remain the
scolfof aristocrats and the shame of reform
ers and liberals throughout the Old World.
It vi . r tiiuuipli; for Man history is not a
vinos or a riddle, but everywhere instinct
Willi meaning; and no heroic effort ever failed
of its effect no drop of martyr blood was
over shed in vain.
Hut even if wo Republican were disposed
to fold our arms in slumber, onr adversaries
would not permit it. They are busy to-day in
lengthening their cords and trengtheiiing
their stakes with a vigilance and activity
which reveals a consciousness on their part
that their dominion must be made sure forth
with or their sceptr-r will have forever de-
i'arled. To-day, invrmidoms of the Slave
'inter threaten and harass Northern Mexico,
me encamped in the heart of Central Ameri
ca, and waging a war of extermination on the
distracted inhabitants of it petty Republics,
while it by turns leers and scowls at Cuba,
while its most ruthless bauds are precipitated
on devoted Kansas, under the protection and
smiles of the Federal Administration. Even
fs we write, the telegraph inform us that
wenty Free-State men, guilty of attempting
to defend their home against the rapine and
violence of Buford's and Titus' blood-thirsty
bandits, have been convicted by Lecompte's
Court of manslaughter! and sentenced to five
years' imprisonment at hard labor a felons.
This is but n fair specimen of what has long
passed for "justice" in Kansas a justice
which takes the criminals into pay aiid nids
them in hunting down, plundering nnd "wi
ping out'' the Innocent, whom it consigns to
the State prison if they are ever goaded into
the madnoRs of resisting their oppressors.
Such crimes and wrongs aa unhappy Kansas
has for twelve months endured, even'Hungary
or Poland has never known ; and the Power
at whose instigation these villainies were and
are perpetrated sit enthroned in the White
House, and ha just arhieved another four
years' ascendancy in the Federal Govern
ment. Who, in view of these facts, can say
that Republicans may now pile their arms,
even for an hour?
The Thihcnf. will be, a it has been, a
Political journal avowedly, though not ex
clusively so. It recognize the truth that
Freedom and Slavery are here grappled in
deadly conflict, and that in the result one of
them must lose all control over the Federal
Government. Hut, while it give prominence
and emphasis to the discussion and elucida
tion of the great issue of the day, it einks
none of the characteristic of a Business ami
Family Newspaper. The proceedings of
Congress, like those in Kansas, will be
watched and reported by an able and fearless
corps of Correspondents, while from London,
Paris, Constantinople, Havana, San Francis
co, Albany and other center of Interest, our
special advices will be, a they have been,
fresh and reliable. A. member of our Edito
rial corps Bayard Taylor i now in North
ern Europe, and will spend the Winter in
Sweden, Lapland, Russia, thence making his
way next season across Siberia and Tartary
to the mouth of the Amour, and thence home
ward by the Pacific and California, unless
some change of route shall promise greater
interest and profit to our readers, for whom
alone he will write regularly throughout, his
adventurous journey, which is likely to re
quire two year for its completion. Our re
ports of the most interesting Lecture, Public
Meetings, &.c, will be full and reliable, and
our Foreign and Domestic New made up with
a careful regard to the condensation into our
ample columns of the greatest amount of in
telligence that is consistent with the use of
type of genorous size. In short, If we fail to
make The Tribune worth its cost, it ahall
not be for want of expenditure or effort.
If it bo deemed desirable by Republicans
that The Tribune should be circulated in
their several localities, we urge them to see
that Clubs he made up and forwarded in due
season. The Postmaster are semi-oflicially
admonished not to aid our circulation, but to
urge instead that of journal deemed "sound"'
and "National" by the compatriots of Atchi
son and Stringfellow. We ask live Republi
cans overywheie to take care that these ef
forts be hut effectual to quench the light of
Freedom in the murky mist of Slavery.

The rapid nnd unprecedented increase of the
