YlIl USnAV, JANUARY 5K, 1.7.
The- Inst week's issue of thin paper is
ono continued string of llio vilest aWc
and uiuiiiiigalcKl falsehood. Nearly three
fourths, of its reaJinrj matter is devoted to
unpatJonnllo ntiJ low slander of (ov.
McComas nnd the members from the
rWlhTuo District, and yet, with the uiln.it.
iw8 of a practiced detainer, it hints con
clusions without alleging facts. It inti
mates that two inemhers of this district
offered, for ten thousand dollar., to wll
th votes of the wholu delegation on tho
Canital Question, and for tho truth of tins
r - -
suggests a call on tho man whoso name
appears at thf head of this pnper as Pub
lisher. Now let us tfll that hireling
sheet such call has been made, and that
the intimation is as falso as the black
hrarl that made it. Tho Jlellevuo Dele
gation are true ami loyal to their consti
tuents, and Omnha has not money enough
to buy them, however willing sho may bo to
try to carry out her constant but infamous
boast, that they em and will buy tho
wholo Legislature, if necessary, to her
ruinous purposes. It intimates, amid a
perfect storm of impotent rage and abuso,
that Gov. Mi Com is is the evil genius,
under whose auspices alone, tho wholo
mighty moving of the pooplo to throw off
the drunken, dominating and corrupt des
potism of tho Omaha clicpio has been
hatched and carried forward, and that ho
has used corrupting influences to obtain
Now, how stands tho fids in relation
to Gov. McComas. Every ono here
who enjoys Gov. McComas' confidence
(and there are a number), know that ho
came to Bellevue as a mere visitor to the
Territory-tliut he has been detained from
matters of interest, and motives every
way justifiable and laudable that he has
no desire to fill any office in tho Territo
rythat the whole of whatever has been
aid in relation to his taking office, has
been said Solely with tho view to quiz the
piebald pack of office-holders and office
seekers among the Omaha clique. We
know that he did not start, or design to
tart, the movement to remove the Cupi
tal that when it was proposed to him to
make a location for that purpose, he had
made his arrangements to leave the Ter
ritory and declined the proposition ; but
being delayed unexpectedly, and the move
ment taking a turn which forwarded in
terests which ho had acquired in the Ter
ritory, he has remained, and in spite of
the low slander and violent threats of
Omaha, has steadily acted in unison with
and for the good of tho people of this
Territory. But does Gov. McComas
own the town of Douglas ? Has he given
any portion of it to any member of the
Legislature! We answer, no! Gov.
McComas was chosen President of the
organization, and refused to bhriuk from,
or skulk the responsibility of the position.
Was there harm or discredit in being
President of a town which, by the cen
tralily of its location, was regarded by
two-thirds of tho Legislature as fit for its
Capital. Gov. McComas had a fair,
but by no means large bhare of the stock
of the town ; but we assert unhesitatingly
that he has never given or sold one lot or
share of Douglas to any member of tho
Legislature. If there be any fact con
trary to this assertion, which is known to
be true, let any responsible man put his
Anger on it and the lie will bo nailed to
the counter. Rave on, Omaha ! " Thou
sand-bar Sodatn n Thou art devoted to
the infernal Gods! Lies cjinnot savo
you ! Mammon and bribery cannot stay
your fall ! The finger of destiny is rap
idly tracing thy doom upon the wall.
The grass will continue to grow upon
your corner lots, and the Pawnees tent in
the molderinj pile of brick on your Capi
tal hill ; when Douglas lots will need no
official advertisement; when hontsl uun
will rule the State, and when those you
now slander and vilify will sigh over the
utterness of your desolation ! Fly, thou
den of rotten speculators. Thou hell of
drunken blue-nosed, frost-bitten politi
cians! To your holes, ye rats! die ship
einketh ! !

Midst tho turmoil and angry ennfurion,
which, during the week thut preceded our
last issue, rent the ermine of dignity from
the speaker's chair and insulted the ma
jesty of the Serjeant at-Anns, there was
no man in our I louse m iiepresemnuri-n
whose unexceptionable conduct challenged
more admiration from the enemies of Ter
ritorial persecution, than that of Sim A,
SritH m.ki, Es.,i,f Bellevue. His im
perlurable self-jHissension which no amount
of uproar could betray ; his uniformly
courteous and respectful deportment, which
no irritating taunt could provoke to un
seemly recrimination; the ability and cau
tion w'ilh which he discharged the delicate
duties of the chair rendered ten-fold
more thnn ordinarily nrduous by the semi
barbarous conduct of an untamed and
vagalsmd minority ; his steady and onfall
crinir pursuit of the grent object of legis
lation with which he was uilicd which
paused not uniil the final nnd official in
troduction of tho Governor to the Iiill for
iho removal of the scut of Government
and the able conclusive ami dauntless
speech which ho delivered on Thursday
afternoon, till., have traced in his behalf a
brilliant record, not soon to be effaced
from tho tablet of public memory.
His speech was an clonuont and fearless
expose of the bitter ami blighting servitude,
which every interest of ih lerntory had
been compelled to yield to Omaha. He
stripped from her deformed body the tin
seled drapery of oilinnl adornment, and
laid bare to tho lush of public scorn tho
excuseless course of her graceless clelegn
tion. His speech was caustic, telling and
rofouiul, and in its delivery, as well as
y bis entire course, throughout Hie whole
ordeal of this trying cnpitol hunt, he has
earned from the people of the 1 erntory a
debt of Gratitude, commensurate with tho
great cause which ho advocated.

A dishonorable member from Neuieha

On Thursduy afternoon, as the hour
appointed by prior resolution for the final
vole on the capitol question, in tho House,
approached, Mr. Finney of Nemeha, with
tho uneasy and laboring air of a guilty
conscience with the impress of 'Petty
Larceny,' 2d ollence, visibly stamped upon
his countenance declaimed in open day
his own ' bill of sale.' Tho consideration
which ho averred to be tho condition of
the transfer must bo branded by every
man, who has had a day s experience in
Omaha, during the present session, as an
unconditional and shameless lie. Did he
not have wit enough to ope honesty of
motive with a decent hypocrisy. His at
tempt to barricade himself behind tho self
domed libel of the ' corruption of tho ma
jority,' as an excuse for joining a lawless
bund of public knaves, is a resort which
would shame hypocrisy itself. Conscience
made him a coward ; knowledge of his
polulion and filth lied his dastard tongue
and the cringing sulfutiion of petty seoun-
urelism, forliade his aping the coinpara
lively dignified demeanor of tho bold
While we might examine a fallacious
defence, of elaborate villiany without con-

to strip from this false and imbecile pallia

self-pollution is proper retaliation upon a
corrupt majority, then Mr. Finney is a
man of virgin purity with trimuiod lamps

voring to accomplish ever since the first
location of the capitol ; viz : the remova
of the Seat of Govcmmeut t or did they
send him there to retail their cause and

There is a sub-thermometer degree of
coolness iibout Finney'a excuse for his
sudden transit, which his perspiring visage,
plainly indicated, he did not experience
himself, while speaking. It is inexplica

an occasion could perpetrate anything so
facetious and jocular. He joint! the mi

A meeting of tho citizens of Otoe county
, in i . .i.
was convened nt i.xceisior iiiock, on me
evening of the l:)l, to take into considera

Territory, and other matters important to
the interest of the people.

Mr. A. I'. Harvey, requested to act as
Iho Chairman called upon Mr. tut 'bs
to Male the oliu il ui luO tuoctiuir,
Mr. Gibbs complied, giving a rapid
and conciso history oi uie operations tn
the Government of the Territory, showing
how the location of the Capital had been
made, ogainst tho desire of tho people, at
a place unfitted, by location and interest,
for the seat of Oovernincnt ; how it had
been retained at Omaha; contrary to the
repeated and urgent demands of the peo
ple for its removal ; how upon a recent
request of a large majority ot the people s
representatives; tho Governor not only
disregarded the request, but assumed an
unwarrantable authority in denying, virtu
ally, the right of the people to remove tho
capital ; how tho friends of the measure
hud been unexpectedly disappoiuted in the
ixisitiou of certain monitors of tho legis
lature whom they thought free from ; and
above suspicion of susceptibility to uupro'
per influences; and concluded by suggest'
ing the appointment of a commission to
confer with theso default in a members and
ask their co-operation upon a question of
the highest importance, not only to their
own constituents, but tho wholo people of
Judge Bradford concurred in the sug
gestion, and approved of tho adoption of
some measures by which the Governor
could be made to understand that he is not
the only power under which the people
are willing to enjoy the privileges of free
Judge Holly felt that the veto message,
with its illogical arguments, was not only
burles'iuo upon sound doctrine, but an
outrageous insult to the people whom Mark
W . Izard is unfit to govern.
Gen. Downs presented a picture of tho
condition of the a flairs at Omaha; how
overtures of bribery hud been made, and
that some of these overtures had been ac
cepted. Ho felt that tho interest of the
Territory not only demanded tho removal
of the Capital, but also tho removal of the
Governor from his office the people hav
ing no longer any respect for him, either
as a ruler, or as a man.
Mr. Decker thought, from what he had
witnessed at Omaha, that a crisis had
come when our Representatives could not
act without tho personal protection of their
constituents, and suggested the appoint
ment of a delegation to Omaha, to guard
against any unlawful outbreak against
legislative propriety and decorum.
exhibiting the miserable depravity unto
which, under the influence of city lot
and the 'almighty dollar,', the Executive
of the Territory had fallen. He seconded
tho proposal of sending a delegation to
argue tho question with the refractory
members, and advocated the proposal to
request tho removal of the Governor
Air. Gibbs moved the appointment of a
committee of nine to visit the people of
rsetnaha county, to discuss with them tho
propriety of instructing llieir Hepresenta
tives to co-operate with the majority of the
I.egislatue m insisting upon the removal
of the Seat of Government.
The meeting appointed Messrs. A. A.
Bradford, II. P. Bonnet, Jacob .SafibnJ,
J. H. Decker, I. L. Gibbs, H. 11. Harding,
S. F. Nuckolls, Henry Bradford aud W.

The meeting adjourned from yesterday
convened, und was organized by the op
pointmtnt of Dr. Campuell as Chairman.
The committee appointed to draft Reso
lutions, reported the following, which
were unauiiuou&ly adopted:
Whf.sf.as, tinder our Republican form of
Government, the peoi-i.e are the sovereign
source of power, and particularly so under the
provisions of the Nebraska-Kansas bill, which
secures for them in express forms ths right to
regulate their own domestic affairs in their
own way, w ithout the interference of any ros
;n authority; and whereas the F.xecutiveof
this Territory, who Is not the representative
of the sovereignty of the Territory, nor placed
in that possilioit by them, who does not profess
to represent their choice or to be responsible
to them, lias dared to nullify their will as ex
pressed through the deliberate enactment of
ttvf-thu-iis of their representatives, which is
the first instance of the kind ever attempted,
and on a mutter too, involving nocoiistittitioc.sl
question, but relating only to the regulation of
our own do.nestie attaint in our own way, in
the location of our seat of Government, in
which said F.xecutive, as the representative of
an authority oeTiit of the Territory, caa
ation of the capitol nt Omnha, will subject the
Territorial members of the Government, to all
manner of overtures of corruption, alike sub
versive of wise legislation, nnd the honest nnd
effective administration of the laws.
RF.soi.vtn, That the Representatives nre
but tho servants of the people, bound to reflect
their views, and advocate the interests of those
who elect them, and any other doctrine is in
consistent wilh Republican Institution.
Resolvf.p, That the Representatives for
this county have truly reflected the will and
wishes of its people; and they heartily en
dorse their public course as such, and giving
them the meed, their patriotism and firmness
so much deserve of ' well done, ye good nnd
Rr.snt.vF.n, That the majority of the people
of this Territory, through their Representatives
who but faithfully reflected their w ill, have
virtually removed the seat of government from
Omaha' City, and we therefore denounce its
further retention at that place, and protest
against nnv further legislation under the whip
and lash of veto usurpation as ineonsistant
with the freedom and purity of legislative
Resolved, That the corrupt and violent
means used bv the mobocrncy of Omaha, who
seem to control the place, to thwart the will of
the people, the virtual refusal of his excellency,
when formally called upon by both branches of
the Legislature to protect the freedom of the
co-ordinate drancli or the t.overnmeiit, and nis
insolent threat mado in person, to refuse his
sanction to a measure then pending, and to
prevent the free exercise of the Legislature
will, to say nothing of the moral corruption
and biibery prevalent in that locality, impera
tively require the immediate adjournment of
tho Legislature from Omaha to Hellcvtie or
Florence, or any other place where our Repre.
sentativcs ran act in lreeilom from improper
outside influences ; and that we instruct our
Representatives to insist upon such adjourn
ment nnd removal.
Rxsolvf.d. That the arbitrary exercise of
the veto power on a question of purely local
cnaracter ; tne tyranicai assumption which
seeks to justify such exercise by denying the
right or the enure body or tho people to gov
em themselves ; his pertinacious refusal to
protect the Legislature from the violence of
mob-law, when duly culled upon, and thus
violating the spirit of his oath of otltee ; his
notorious alliance with a sectional and cor
rupt clique, which seeks to pollute the foun
tain of pure legislation ; his want of capacity;
his neglect of public duty; his titter imbecility
to say nothing of graver imputations, connected
with the control and expenditure of the public
money, all demand the immediate removal of
Mark W I.ard, from the office of Governor
of Nebraska Territory a position which he
has so signally abused and the appointment,
in his stead, of come honest man, who, ema
nating from the people, will not attempt to
trample upon their independence, or thwart
moir sovereign win when constitutionally ex
pressed. REor.vrrt, therefore, That a petition be
immediately prepared and circulated through
out the Territory, setting forth the views of
the people, and the Legislature he requested
to memoralize his Excellency, the President
of the United States, to remove Mark W.
Izard, from the office lie has so disgraced, and
to appoint some man who will co-operate with
the people, in carrying out such measures as
they deem will best promote their interests ;
and that until such petition be heard, and re
moval made, Uie Legislature be requested to
adjocrn. A. F. Harvey,

On motion of Gen. Downs, the Secre
tary was desired to publish the resolutions
as adopted, in the- IJellevue Gazette, Ne

Judge Holly, being obliged to leave
