DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CONVENTION.
The Democratic Executive Committee
of Vinton County, In pursuance of a reso

The Nebraska Election.
(This Territory, which is about to
became a State, has done glorious
ly at the late election. An Omaha
correspondent of the New York
Express, writing under date of June
G says: ' .'...'
.'Returns of the election not all
in, but enough to show that 'State'
has; .carried ; that probably Morton
Democrat) and the whole ticket
is elected, and that the Legislature
is-ahoutequal. When it is remem
bered that this has been an Aboli
tion Territory, and the last Dele
gate was elected over Miller (Dem
ocrat) two years ago, by about
1.000 majority, you can appreciate
tne wonderful-change of sentiment."
The Conservative 'Republicans
We have been frequently asked,
since the radicals in . Congress
have so completely developed , the
"cloven hoof" and 'come out for
negro sufl'rage and negro equality,
out opinion as regarded the future
organization of the Republican
party whether the Conservative
portion of that parly, (which we
have reason to believe constitutes
a very considerable number there
of,) will adhere to the Radicals
and vote their men and measures?
To this question we were, unable,
until now, to give any very definite
answer. At Hamilton, Iiutler co.?
on Saturday last, tho Conservative
Republicans held a mass conven
tion, on which occasion Hon. Lew
is D. Campbell, who is well known
as one of the most prominent Re
publicans in the State, delivered a
stirring speech in which he coun
seled the cutting loose from tho
Radicals, and the organization of a
separate wing of the Republican
party, whose principal question at
issue should be unwavering oppo
sition to negro sufl'rage and the
This, to say the least, looks like
a row in the Republican camp,
that needs but the Convention of
the leading members of that party
which is soon to come off at Co
lumbus, to bring about an open
rupture and grand smash-up of the
Abolition oiganization in this State
In speaking ol the meeting at
Hamilton, tho Cincinnati Enquirer
"We should not be faithful
chroniclers of political events if
we omitted to publish the proceed
ings of the conservative Republi
cans of Butler county, at Hamil
ton, Ohio, on Saturday last. They
mark the great difference of senti
ment which prevails at this time
in the ranks of the dominant par
ty. The speaker on the occasion
t-Hon. Lewis D. Campbell is well
known as one of the most promi:
nent Republicans in the State, and
is distinguished for his long exper
ience in public offices, and for his
ability and sagacity. He has late
ly been appointed by the President
as Minister to Mexico, and confirm
ed by a unanimous vote, with1 a
single exception, of the radical
United States Senate. The con
flicting views of the radical and
conservative Republicans will be
strongly manifested at the State
Convention which meets at Colum
bus to-morrow. The party wire
workers may seek to fix up mat
ters by an ambiguous and dodging
platform, but it will not avail.
The earnest Radicals are for negro
sufl'rage, and the Conservatives are
against it, and the issue is bound
to be made in the election."
The Democratic Candidate for Secretary
That bitter, but sprightly Radi
cal paper, the Mac-a-cheek Press,
is not pleased with tho low person
al assaults which some of its. co
temporaries have made upon Le
Fevre, the Democratic candidate
for Secretary of State.' It says:
"We have been long enough in
political life to learn that personal
abuse is damaging only to the par
ty that indulges in it. It some
times creates sympathy in quarters
least expected, and always excites
the combative, without adequate
return. We thought this while
reading a violent attack, in a good
Republican paper, upon the Dem
ocratic nominee , for Secretary of
State. Had the author of the ar
ticle been assured of hie facts, it
woald have been more sensible to
have buppressed the charge.
"As a soldier, we know that he
was a brave man and efficient offi
cer; and it is to the credit ol our
organization that,recognizing these
noble qualities, and disregarding
his political errors, our Republican
administration gave him high pro
motion." The Press then copies the com
plimentary notices of General Le
Fevre from Generals Crittenden
and Rosecranz. ...

person or persons, and secondly,'

lare, upon, principles ot equal, jus
tice. and not to. be bestowed as
special privileges oh every class
The proper rights for the disposal
of the public land have, lrom. the
earliest period, been the subject of
earnest inquiry, grave discussion
and deliberate judgment " The
purpose of direct revenue was the
first object, and tins was attained
by public sale fb 'the highest .bid
der, and subsequently by the right
of private purchase at a fixed nnn
iinum. ' "
It was soon discovered that the
surest and most speedy 'means
promoting the wealth'aiid prosper
ity of ,tne country was by encouraging
actual settlement:and occupation;
and hence a system of pre
emptory rights, resulting most ben
eficially in all the Western Terri
tories. ' By progressive steps it has
advanced to, the homestead pnnci
pie, securing to every head of .
lamily, widow and single man, ' 21
years of age, and every soldier
who' has borne arms for'-his'icoun
try; a landed estate, sufficient, with1
industry, for the purpose of inde
pendent support. - Without ttacing
the , system of pre-emption law
through the ' several stages, it"
sulhcient to observethat.it ha3 cer
tain just and plain principles firm
ly established in all our legislation.
The bbject of the laws, is to en

, rFor a quarter of a- century the'
guantity Of land subject to .'agri
cultural pre-emption has been lim
ited so as not to exceed a quarter
section, or one hundred and sixty
acres; and, further, to guard against
nonbpbly, the privilege of pre:
emption is not allowed to any per:
son who, owns three hundred and
twenty acre? of land in any !State
or Territory in the United States;
nor is any person entitled to more
than a pre-emption right; nor is it
extended to? land to which the In
dian title haa riot been. extinguish
ed. The UmO of payment for pre
empted lands is not extended be
yond Iwelve months, within which
time the minimum price must be
paid. . I 1 v ,
-Where the ettlement is-upon
unfruitful territory, . the time for
payment is limited to the day of
public offering designated , by the
proclamation, of the President;
while to prevent - depreciation of
the land by waste or destruction ol
what may constitute as value, pe
nal enactments have been made
for the punishment of persons dep
redating on public timber. Now,
supposing the New York and Mon
tana Iron. Manufacturing Company
to be entitled to all the pre-emption
rights which it has been found
expedient to ' bestow on natural
persons, it will be seen that the
privileges, conferred by the bill, in
question are in direct conflict with
every principle heretofore observ
ed in respect. to the disposal of the
public lands. ; ' :
The bill confers pre emption
rights to mineral lands, which, ex
cepting coal lands, at any enhanced

excluded from pre-emption.' . ine
object of the company is not to
cultivate the sou or , to promote
agriculture, but is for the sole pui
pose of mining and manufacturing
iron. The company is not limited
like ordinary, pre-emptors to one
pre-emption claim ol a quarter
section, but may pre-empt two
bodies of land, amounting in the
aggregate to twenty sections, con
taining 12.800 acres, or eighty or
dinary pre-emption rights.- The
timber is not protected, but the
contrary. ,i .
Before the consummation of the
title the qompany; are allowed to
consume whatever may be necess'
ary in the erection ot buildings
and the :busind3S of manufactu,rin g
iron, a or these special privileges
in contravention of the. land poll
cy of so many years the company
are required to pay only the mini
mum price of one hundred and
twenty-five ' per , acre, . or one-six
teenth of the minimum, and are
granted a credit of two years or
twice the time . allowed ordinary
pre-emptors of offered land.
Nor is this all. . The pre-emption
right in question covers three 6ec
tions of land containing iron-ore
and coal. The act passed on the
1st of July, 1864, made it lawful
for the President to cause tracts
embracing coal or coal fields, to be
offered at public sale, in suitable
legal subdivisions, to the highest
bidder, after public notice of not
less than three months, at a mini
mum price of - $20 per acre, and any
not thus disposed ol were to be li
able to private entry, at said .mini
mum. : ' : "'
