Below, will be found one, of a series of
Resolutions' passed unanimously, a a
meeting ihe Citizens of Otoe county,

Capitel Quvatiou. in our Legislature ; and
published in the Nebraska News of the
31st of Jan. 18.T7. We understand from
a jprvate but .reliable source, that the
Kditorof the1 Nebraska News, was re
quested to republish this resolution, a
short time since, in order to remind the
people that their Representatives, were
under" instructions this winter, which had
never beta, recalled t but the aforesaid
Editor,' k(beiny hut the tool and slave, of
one Morton, who shaped his course in di
rect 'opposition to these wholesome in-
stractors of the people) declined repub
lishing, fearing we tnppose it would show
hit master, in rather an unfavorable light.
IVery "one ' knows, who is acquainted
with the cercumstances, that there was far
mormcesshy, for adjourning the Legis
lature this winter than there was last , and
theres ' not si doubt, , that if the cercumstances-
had continued to demand it last
wtite,. it. would have been done. .
This Resolution shows that this is not a I
neuc'idea fif , adjourning the Legislature
beyond the ioflusnce and controle of a
bullying , meb. 1 It .shows that the people
are ready and willing to instruct their
represeixatires to vindicate their rights in

The House was in session sll night,
mainly engaged in taking die yeas and

narrated by n member and a witness.'
Mr. Grow objected to Mr. Quitman
making any remarks. ,

Mr. Grow responded. , This is a free

and raid : 1 want lo know what you mean

Mr. Grow replied. I mean just what
I say, that this is a free Hall, and every

Mr. Keitt taking Air. Grow by the

are a dumned Black Ilepublicnu puppy.
Mr. Grow knocked up his hutul, say
ing: I shall occupy such place in this
Hall us I please, and no nigger-driver
shall crack his whip over me.
Mr. Keitt then again grabbed Mr.
Grow by the throat, Mr. Grow knocked
his hand off, and Mr. Keitt coming at
him ogam, Mr. Grow knocked him
down. '. '..,'.'

The Speaker loudly and Imperatively
demanded order, and called on the Ser-gtant-av-arms
to interfere. That func

gether with his assistant, hurried to the
scene and crowded into the thickest of
the fight, in which at least a dozen mem
bers were congregated, fcome minutes
elapsed before this truly fearful, coutcst
was quieted. Further difficulties are ap
prehended. There was a dead calm in comparison
to the bcene just enacted when Mr. Quit

from the exciting question connected vt ith

that he was his peer.
From 4 till 0 1-2 o'clock the time was

hour Mr. Quitman submitted a resolution
that the House adjourn till Monday next,
when the subject under consideration, the
Kansas Message, ah ill be resumed, and
the vote on the standing proposition shall
bo taken without wy tur her delay being
occasioned by debate or dilatory motions.
L'nanin otis consent was given for the'in

the responsibility for the violation of its
