for a Convention cf delegates from the
different Counties for the purpose cf de

electors of the whole Territory in the
halls of Congress. The time intervening
between thii and tho election being thort,
and no call having been made, we have
ly the odvice and consent of several prom

to namo tho time ami place, together w ith
alasiscf representation, which ail will
ngreo is fair under the cncunibtona's.
The Desoto riloi, iit quoting our in

Tho only dilTioulty in our view is, tho

Considerube excitement has prevailed
in Sarnv county for lb past week in re
gard to claim jumping. It appears that
fcomo individuals who were strangers to
the Club law r- gulaiion-, in thu section,
(the main feature of which is to suelaiu
squatters in holding C-'O acres cf land)
relyin" upon tho pre-emption aU, and
prolably being advised wrongfid'y by oth
ers, had taken some claims which eld res
ident quarters regarded as riyhtfally be-
longing to them under the regulations ct
the Club law. When this fad lecam-'
known, a meeting of the Club was culled
which convened ut the School houso in
the city en hut Saturday. The meeting
was largely attended, and any amount of
enthusiasm seemed to pervade the crowd.

the di-cussions, and thowed as was ex
pected, the right rpirit in regurd to thu
protection of actual settlers against all
jumpers. Gov. Cummiug mado a I eld,
fearless and able speech and was highly
applauded showing Jackson-like, ul
thoogh Governor cf the Territory, that it
was the lest inteteU cf Nilrnska to sus
ihe early f rulers in their original lights.
The Club thi n adjourned and r paired to
the claims which were taken, and when

that I nivoluiitai ily shouted. (Jar Terri
