Dill Brown got up on Uie box behind Scely, and told them they were a set of d d fools ; that ho was raised in Kentucky, and that lie was ashamed of their proceedings ; but they yelled the louder, and finally Soely was forced to squat, During the melee, an Irishman had mounted another box facing the building.

Well, the peo ple, the squatters, thought it was best to attend, and see how " things were did" in this county. Now, we will not dure not impugn the motives of the men who were instrumental in getting op this ex pression of the people, but, this we will say, the PEOPLE spoke will they abide their decision ? The following was handed to us by the Secretary of the Convention, as the pro ceedings thereof: On motion of C. T. Holloway, Gen. L. L. UOWEN was called to the chair.

ANOTHER VlIZLEll We were present on last Saturday evenins at a meelinJ if the citizens of Omaha, where the friends of Gen. Esta. brook, Rankin, Chapman and Thayer de fined their different positions, and we have only room to give a meager sketch of the proceedings. It appeared that this affair was gotten up by the friends of Gen. Estalrook, iu consequence of a report in circulation thai he had declined in favor of Rankin, and that Rankin had gone north with various pepers as usual, to show the good people how he was gaining strength iu Omaha and south of the Platte. After quite a number had convened iu front of Tioneer Block, Gen. Chipman. formerly of Michigan, ascended a box and made a speech in favor of Gen. Eaa Irook asking, in conchsion, that the people should concentrate upon oue man, and if they could not effect it on E&ta brook that he would go for Chapman, but he beseeched them not to unite on Ran kin. The General is a good speaker, and was listened to with respect. Mr. Macon was now called upon and occupied ihe same position as Gen. Chipman Mating that Rankin had gone north, but that he would follow him in the morning and smoke him out. When he sat down, bully Hanscom was railed for. He pitched into Gen. Chip- The people met in the evening in tho Hall over the Tlatte Valley Bank, and the vast number which on so short a notice were congregated together, plainly showed the unusual interest manifested iu the People's candidate for Delegate. The Hon. A. A. Bradford, was called after a disc ission It was again renewed by B. P. Rankin, and lost, The original motion was now in order, to go into ballot for four members of the Legislature: On motion of S. A Strickland, F Clarke was appointed as assistant Clerk The Convention proceeded to ballot with the following result: S. A. Strickland, 163. C. T. Holloway, 181. Amos Gates, 156. James Davison, 157.

His conscience is evidently laboring under the heavy load of sin which has been accumulating for years. No friendly hand was prof fered to greet him to the shore but ta king his carpet bag in hand, he stepl from the boat, and with a sombre counte nance, like some dark portentous cloud, within whoso raging bowels a thun der 6torm was brewing ; he ploded his weary way to the hotel, un-noticed and unknown.

The Dakota City Herald, publishes a very lengthy and fulsome article, upon the qualifications of Bird B. Chapman, as del egate to Congress from Nebraska, from the Sioux City Eagle, printed and pub lished in the State of Iowa. Would it not be well for the Eagle man, to attend to his own business attend to the interests of his own State and his own City? If the political lines were drawn in this territory, and the ditrerent parties were engaged in a strife for supremacy; the interference of the Eagle man, would be excusable but here in Nebraska, the actual settlers know their own interests, and wish no in terference from any of the States. We love the name of the Eagle, but as strong as his pinions are, he cannot carry B. B. Chapman to the Congressional Halls. The Eagle man ought to recollect, that after the tea commandments were deliv ered to Moses on the Mount, that posteri ty, by cominou consent added one more, called the eleventh, which reads as follows: "Every man should mind his own business" CSirNothing was so much dreaded in our school days as to be punished by sit ting between two girln. Ah, the force of education. In after years we learned to submit to such indignities without shed ding a tear.
