BOWEN« KINGSBURY, Publishers, TEERITORY OF DAKOTA. By the Governor! TUAVKHQIVINO PROCLAMATION: ~j In devout recognition of the blessings of Al mighty God for need time and harvest for free dom from devouring insect*, and as an earnest of our heartfelt gratitude to the arbiter and dis poser of all human affairs, aud in conformity with the proclamation of the President of the United States, I appoint THURSDAY, the 20th day of NOVEMBER instant, as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God, for the manifold blessings that we as a people have enjoyed during the year now draw ing to a close. I earnestly urge all christian ministers of all denominations to ass nible their people at their respective plaices of worship on that day, laying aside all secular pursuits, and let the pleasing spectacle be presented at least In to far as this territory is concerned, of a whole people, on the same day, and at the same hour, bending the knee ana-lifting the voice in prayer and thanks giving, for Divine blessings already bestowed by our Merciful Lord, and in earnest fervent invoca tions for a continuance ol the same. IHrne at Yankton, the Capital of the said Ter ritory, this the first day of November, [L. S.] A. D. one thousand Qigut hundred and seventy-seven. JoHN I,. PENNINGTON. Cards proclaiming the birth of a son or daughter are fashionable. Mobile, Alabama, has threetimes the pop ulation it had before the.war. McClellan and Pendleton are mentioned as the democratic ticket in 1SS0. From |50 to $75 per month is paid to common laborers in Mississippi and Louis iana. A ton of silver is worth $34,010, and it is estimated that it will take 10,000 tons to re* deem the outstanding legal tenders. The army walloped the democratic paitv, and now the democratic party has had its turn at, the army. Honors are even. The Charleston News and Courier gives anew reading to Hayes' famous maxim. It says be Is an American before he is a re publican." The Parole-Ten Brack turf contest is becoming a sectional affair. Mr. Lorillard now proposes to pit his stable against the entire west. Ben Wade says he doesn't believe George Washington, in his time, ever had a more honest and upright administration than that of General Grant. It is noted by the St. Louis Journal as an incontrovertible fact that the five great pro ducing states cast republican majorities. They are Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, and Nebraska. The republican paity obstinately reluses to wink out. In 1876 the republican „s in the Connecticut legislature were in the mi nority by thirty-six votes. In the coming session they will have exactly tbat much majority. It is computed that the grain used for liquors in a year in the United States reach es 70,000,000 bushels, which would make 1,050,000,000 four pouLd loaves of bread. Great Britain uses 80,000,000 bushels of 8fain yearly for the same purpose, and an nually imports food to the value of nearly $400,000,000. Kansas leads every state in the union in the yield of corn per acre, being 43.5 bush els. Little New Hampshire, strange to say, comes next, with a yield of 43. Vermont follows with 39 Ohio, 36.7 Wisconsin, 34 Indiana, Iowa and Nebraska 30 Mich igan, 29 Missouri, 37.8 Minnesota, 35.4 Texas and Illinois, 35 each. Charles Nordhoff writes to the Herald that the president will not sign either the silver or anti-resumption bills as they stand, and tbat one of the leading objects of the administration, as Secretary Evarts said few days ago, is to resume specie payments! und neither the president nor the cabinet will take a step backward on this subject. V"'- p' A CANDID STATEMENT We commend the following article from the Canton Advocate to those gentlemen of the Dakota press who have been engaged for several months past in sowing scandals abou1 the Governor broadcast over the territory That the seed they have so industriously deposited should be productive of fruit of this character will greatly surprise them and must tend to weaken their, faith in thg "smut machine." The fairness and "qnHor of the Advocate's remarks commend them to tlie people of all parties: .. We learn through the prees that the term for which Governor Pennington was ap pointed expires the 1st of January next, and that an efiort is being made to defeat his re appointment. Whether the Governor is an applicant for bj own successor or not. we are not apprised, but it seems due this gen tleman that the appointment should be ten dered him at least. Usually the appointees to territorial positions, however good knd tuinmecdablfr' their personal, or general qualifications may be. become intern ted in, and identified with the progress and Jevalopmut of tha territory, than an honest effort to ftilfill the dutiea of their office, and when completed, leave for other localities. Oar pniuit Governor thu* fcr has proved an exception. He has inveated his entire means within the Territory. Any visitor to !•.» Cnpital can sea this /set evidenced in the t. 9 Miildfogs both publio .and private^ ereci stf J.y~him and with his capital. These, a« any one oonverant with tha property his tory vt the Territory can assert, could not be dispoFed of at once at a profit, but if at all only nt a lose, and any shrewd financier would not make like investments, with the expectation of realising a profitable return immediately. It is only the citiwn who has co.me.to stay, and who is at heart inter' ested in the welfare of tha people, and in the ultimatedevelopment of the land he has choeen for his home, that 'plants his means for slow growth or yield. The ability displayed by this executive is another reason for his continuance another term if he desires, not only can ha wield the pen, but few are his superiors as an advo cate of public measures, and the territory of Dakota nas no reason as haa occurred in her early history, to be ashamed of the efficiency of her officials. No public man possessed of any positive ness of character, can poasibly officiate with out incurring either the enmity, or at least the displevure of some. He tan not act to the satisfaction of all. It i* not in the nature of human events some body must fail to accomplish their aims. Then there are in all communities, chronic croakers, dissemblers, fault finders, and sore heads, whose wails go to make up a storm of cen sure, and many an innocent man has been borne down under the pressure of unreason able, and falsified sentiment created^ through the efforts of these skeletons of society. There is a respect due the position, as well as the man, that should of itself check such actions If the ceDSure given is mer ited or based upon facts, let them be pre sented at the proper source, and a thorough investigation will surely follow, and the truth be sifted. Our personal acquaintance with the sub ject of this article is limited, barely of suffi cient extent to warrant a passing recogni tion, but until the inuendms, and flings made and cast at Gov, Pennington are proved to be warranted, (ffbicb is very easy to do if so,) we sincerely think the good the gentleman 1ms done, and the public spir it manifested in everv direction, to enhance the interests ol this territory and its worthy citizens, merits not only the approval of his constituency, but of the administration in whose bands lie the designation of his suc cessor.
