Slavery in Nebraska.
Tho New York Tribune publishes some
intelligence from Nebraska which may
well arrest attention. It dcvelopes plans
already advanced toward maturity for the
complete introduction of slavery into that
Territory. Indeed it seems slaves have
already been brought by emigrants from

states that the Slavery propaganda iu that
quarter are greatly encouraged by tho suc
cess which they think has crowned their
effort iu Kansas. Accordingly they are
carrying their tactics and their institution
into the fertile and inviting plains of South
ern Nebraska. jTheir avowed intention is to
convert that part of tho Territory into a
Slave Stato, leaving its Northern part open
for Freemen, but in reality we cannot be
sure of their setting any limit to their con
quests. This is more than was to bo expec
ted. The Oligarchy will never be satisfied
with Kansas alone. They mean to possess
all tho territories. Their motto is-no
freedom outsido the present Freo States;

From the Steubenville Herald.
Tite Steubenville & Indiana Railroad.
Ma. Editor: At the close of my last
number, I propounded two questions which
I proposed lo examine thereafter. 1st.
As to the ability of the community, through
which the road runs, to take $119,043, 81
of stock in tho road in addition to what has
been already taken, I'say $419,053 81, be
cause I propose to dispose of this matter
first, resorving tho proposition for future
discussion that they are able to tako much
Tho asscssmentof real and personal prop
crtv in tho counties of Jefferson, Harrison,
Carroll, Tuscarawas, Coshocton and the
North half of Licking, through which tho
road runs is as follows:
Real estate, 824,120,147. Personal,
17,303,838 but reducing for certain dis
puted items and calling tho round aggre
gate $50,000,000 we havo a substantial
basis upon which to estimate.
The entire cost of tho road or 4,000,
000 is eight per cent, or eighty dollars for
every thousand tho community is estimated
to be worth, and no man will look at tho
assessment of his property and say that he
would tako that for it. But at present the
point is to get up to half that, or an aver
age of forty dollars on every thousand. Of
this there is already taken $1,218,827 88.
What is wanting is $419,053 81, or 8,382
shares of stock. This is in round numbers
$1,037,881 69 of stock held by the commu
nity, andjoaving $2,301,037 92 of debt or
what is the same thing in effect $2,301,
037,92 of stock held by foreign stockhl
ders. In th'iB calculation it will be seen
that the sum of $61,080 39 of earnings of
the road is counted as so much stock taken
and paid for and makes up tho amount
Stock taken and paid in $1,218,827 88
Earnings of the road
applied to stock.. 01,080 89
Loans 2,301,037 92
Deficit to be supplied by
new stock 419,053 81
Total cost of the road $4,000,000 00
There is auuther view of this subject.
How many property holders aro tlio within
this district of country? There are not less
than twenty four thousand freemen. Two
million dollars of stock is less than ono
hundred dollars to each freeman. Now
the $1,218,827,88 of stock already taken,
has been taken partly by municipal copor-
atioos as counties, cities, townships, &c,
only the interest is required to be paid, and
the moment the ioad becomes a dividend
paying road that ceases, because tho road
will pay it. Of the stock subscribed and
paid by individuals, tho individuals sub
scribing aro only six hundred or a trifle
less. Now this leaves twenty-three thous
and four hundred freemen within the range
of the road, who have not yet taken a share
of stock iu the road. Can thero bo any
doubt of their ability to tako 8,382 shares
of fctoek amongst thorn, if they are once
convinced that it is for their interest to do
so? It is a little over ono share of stock
to every three freemen.
Is it their interest to do so? This, the
second question; I proposed in my last to
examine. And now, my fellow citizens,
permit uic to. lay aside this distant mode
of discussion, and address myself to each
one of you in familiar style, face to face.
Can you, will your circumstances admit of
your investing fifty, ono hundred, two hun
dred, or any other sum of money in a safe
and profitable investment, and holding it
for tho benefit ofoursclf aud your family,
as a perpotua 1 inheritance convertible into
money at any moment. If you can do so,
and pay up tho amount within tho next
six or twclvo months, let us look at this
road, and examine rigidly, so as to precludo
any lational danger of error, whether your
money will bo safo hero, and wjiethcr it
will yield to you,- interested as you are, a
reasonable return for the use of it.
As to its safety the charter is a perpet
ual charter; and cannot bo forfeited, except
for gross criminality ou the part of the
stockholders themselves; a state of things
no man, can rationally anticipate Tho
power of tho legislature to repeal charters
has of lato been tho subject of elaborate
investigation, and will soon bo consigned
to that bourne of forgetfuluess where many
other crude doctrines of honest, but mista
ken statesman sleep in undistinguished oh
Will the stock yield a reasonable return
for the ubo of the money? Whothcr it will
bo at all times convertible into money will
depend upon tho dividends.
Times are bard, indeed, whon six per
cent stocks, having ten years to run, that
is not payablo in less than ten years are
worth less than dollar for dollar. And the
longer they havo to run tho greater is their
value. This is for tho tamo reason that
your freo-siuiplo estato in your farm is
worth moro than a leaso for ten, twenty,
fifty years, or for your lifetime. Tho one
will soon end, the other runs into the un
told years of tho future
I havo shown you that railroads costing
$40,000, $75,000 and $90,000 per mile
make dividends of eight, nine and ten per
ocnt. per annum on tho money invested in
them. Hore is a road costing $32,258
per mile. Tho business which on the
Boston & Worcester road would pay twenty
five per cent, on tho cost of this road. Does
any road fun through a country richer in
all that gives . business to a road. Does
any road oonnect richer producing coun
tries than tho interior of Ohio, with great
er consuming markets than Pittsburgh
Philadelphia, New. York and Boston? I
will in a few days, enter more into detail
than I can at present on this part f the
subject, for I intend to assert nothing here
that will not stand the test of experience
and of time. Truth is all sufficient here,
and aught else would be the extremo of
folly. ' ' A Friend.

For the Truo American.
Died, on Saturday June 30th 1855, in
the 15th year of his age, Pluinmer J. lams
ouly son of Pluinmer J. lams deceased, of
Steubenville, Ohio, leaving a sister and
mother, the wife of Dr. W. II. Brown of
Ipava Ills. , to morn their sad and early
loss. His death was caused by drowning,
whilst in the act of bathing in Spoon riv
er, near Bcrmadotte, Fulton County Illi
nois. His remains were interred in the village
Cemetery at Ipava, on Sabbath afternoon
July 1st, under the charge of tho Ipava
Division of the Sons of Temperance, by
request of the family of tho deceased ; fol
lowed by a large concourse of sympathi
sing friends and acquaintances, who had
assembled for the performance of the last
sad obsequies of the early dead. Tho death
of a loved one under ordinary circumstan
ces, whether occurriug as tho result of pro
tracted disease or tho necessary effect of
declining age, is an event which few are
able to meet unmoved ; but when tho "in
satiate archer" springs his deadly shaft
w ith unerring aim, at the life of tho vig
orous scion as it is growing into manhood,
thereby making an irrcparablo breach in
the family circle, and blasting tho fond
est hopes of maternal and filial affection ;
the effect is such as to challenge the pow
er of tho most nervous and best fortified
mind to withstand the sudden shock. Of
ten ve have been called to mourn tho un
timely demise of the child of disobedience,
the inebriate or tho criminal; but the
friends and relatives of tho subject of this
brief sketch, find a soursc of consolation
in tho fact that the premature decease was
unaccompanied by cither of these charac
teristics ; whilst a fond and doting mother,
and an effectionate and confiding sister are
thus called to mourn their sudden bereave
ment. May they be inspired with confi
dence in that Supreme Intelligence which
has thus early snatched from earth to
Heaven the Fpirit of a brother and son.
"When, mid our hopes that waken fears,
And mid our joys that end in gloom ;
The children of our earthly years,
Around us spring and bud and bloom.
An nngel from the blest above,
Comes down among them at their play ;
And takes up one we dearly love,,
And bears it silently away.
Bereft, wit fuel the spirits strife;
But while the inmost soul is riven,
Our dear and dutious bud of Life
Receives immortal bloom in Heaven."
