The "Eastern Question," that most directly
interests her, is not whether Russia and Turkey
will go to war, but whether she shall pour her

It seems that there are portions of Nebraska
not belonging or granted U nuy Indian triba,
and all that ia asked for is, that those unappro

with the Indians, the other portions shall alio
be in a state to be opened.

JJ" The Courier intimates that tlie Committer
to leleclTemperancc candidates purposely chose
it majority f whigs. We tiro informed by a
member of the committee, in w hose word we
place full confidence, that neither the democrats
nor whigs composing the Committee ercr men
tioned the subject, or appeared lo think of poli

ferred a majority of democrats merely to settle
the caviling, if he had thought of the subject
For the Journal.
M. Cumi ns: I had no expectation, when I
offered my advice lo tho youthful editors of the
" Courier," that I should awaken the paternal
and excruciating sensibilities ef " A Temperate
Man," or arouse the inebriuttd effusions of
My efforts were designed, if possible, to in
Mill into the minds of the Courier men an idea
of their very inconsistent course of conduot in
prating about their love for the temperance
cause, and then publishing three to four col
umns a week ot "aid ana com tori ' to the
whisky sellers whose faces look very doleful
just now and to induce them to come out like
men and confess either their fondness for the
" ereeur," or the injluenet that prompted them
For it we admit that tbey are " temperate men
Id precept and practioe," we are bound also to
admit that their paper ia very tnltmptrmit. It ia
the organ of the whisky sellers then we havo
an inUmptrml paper wuh aober editors quite
i nondescript. All that would be necessary to
prove the paper intemperate, or slightly under
the influence of the " joyiJ," would be a read
ing ot the exquisite production of venom, spite
and vulgarity ov er the tignature ot " Alaska."
But I ana gratified with my euoceaa. The
eiitora have come out manfully they prate no
aore about their dear temperance principles
the public know now Just where to place them j
their columns are teeming witli strained and
forced arguments to prove that the man who in
vented whisky was a publio benefactor) that
the Interruption of its sale in this city will bring
ruin and desolation J that its introduction into
the family cirole is a beginning at happy life in
place ot the destroyer of all the joys that clus
ter around a temperance house J in attempts to
fasten the sign-board ot the whisky teller to the
glorious old car of democracy the same demo
cracy that boast proudly of their motto, ' the
greatest good to the greatest number " in bol-
storing up the fast-failing energies of that old
destroyer of the human race, who hat murdered
more thnn all the wars ever waged. All this
is included in the efforts ot the Courier. But
tho lime lias passed for the cause of whisky to
be preached in this city with any kind of sue

editors can havo the glorious eatisfactton of dy

23 From tho N. Y. Tribune wo gather the
following information in respect to the present
aspect of the war question between Russia nnd
" It tippem that in accenting the. propositions
of the mediating powers, the Czar ogrees to
withdraw his troops from the Danubian princi-
paiiucs, on condition tnai me rone accepts inn
same propositions without alteration. This
would leave it to the Turks to sny whether
there shall bo war or peace, end must, we
should say, in any event, enure to the advan
tage or Russia. It' the Porte accepts the propo
sals whoso exact nature, by the wy, is not
et officially made publio we may be sure that
Russia gains everything essential in her original
demands. If, however, as is far from improb
able, the Sultan should be impelled by the ardor
of enthusiasm prevailing among his Moslem
subjects, to reject these proposals, on him falls
the responsibility ot plunging Europe in war,
contrary to the advice ol Ins ullics. With tins
acceptance on the part of Russia, tho question
has entered upon a new phase, but its ultimate
conclusion is little less doubtful and menacing

At each session of Congress for sevcral'yeai s,
Mr. Douglas, a Senator from the State of Illi
nois, a gentleman well known throughout tin:
whole Union as a man of high order of tulents.
a Statesman end a devoted friend to the West,
and progress generally, has introduced a bill in
relation lo this territory. 1 believe he first gave
il the name of Nebraska. Sometimes he gave
it one boundary, sometimes another; at all times
looking to its orgsni ration and settlement by
white men. These bills he urged with teal nnd
great ability but was uusiiciessful. At tho
jst session of Congress iny colleague nnd friend,
the representntio from this district, introduced
n bill to organixe a novernment for this Territo
ry nnd to promote ita settlement. To the intro
