that there is no necessity of banks in this
State—that we have no use for them—and
again we are told by equally good authori
ty, that the Democracy are in favor cl such
banks as will insure the bill-holders against
loss, "and the banks compelled at all times
and under every contingency, to redeem
their circulation in gold and silver." Now,
can anybody tell us whether the Democrat

These savans of the Democratic press
charge that the Republicans are in favor of
a loose system of banking, and of establish
inga bank at every "paper town, as well as
commercial city." Upon what ground is
this based? Can anyone tell. We have
heard no such theory advanced—no such
system mooted, by Republican speakers or
Republican presses. It cannot be shown,
nor logically deduced from anything ad

favor of a pell-mell system of banking.—

Legislative and Exewitive power, of th*
State devolve upon the people. They a*
.ume these important Auction, for one daj
only, and they then delegate their trust to
their agents for two years. The importance
then, of selecting good and true men to ex
ercise the power, so delegated, cannot be
over-estimated. With the merits of the
can
didates for the respective offices to be filled,
and with the principles proclaimed for their
guidanee, we presume the people are already
sufficiently acquainted, and have probably
made up their minds which way, and for
whom, their suffrages shall be cast. This
is the case to a great degree—almost uni
versally so. Of course, there are a few—
and sorry are we to say it—who have not
yet made up their minds—no, not that, 'ei
ther, their minds havo not been made up for
them—as to who shall nominally reoeive
their suffrages. To that class, of course it
were worse than useless to appeal—they ean
only be reached, on the day of election, by
an application of the ardent! To such we
havo not a word to say—no Word of ours
would influence them an iota— no amount
of reasoning would convince them that it
was their duty as freemen to cast their votes
in accordance with ccrtain well-defined prin
ciple. They are but machines, under the
control of self-constituted directors, and it
were useless to attempt a different mode of
operating them.
As wo said before, almost every nan has
his mind made up as to whom ho thinks
most capable of filling the offices to which
the several candidates aspire, and while we
have not a word to say to such upon the way
they shall exercise their rights—disclaiming
all intention of dictation—we earnestly urge
it upon every voter opposed to the extension
of Slavery, to remember that the election
takes place NEXT TUESDAY, the 15th of
October. Is is a duty they owe to them
selves and to their country, to renumber
and be on hand at the polls—and when there
don't forget that every vote cast for the
Democratic nominoes is, and will bo consid
ered a vote for the nationalization of Slave
ry, and a full and unqualified endorfement
of the present National Administration, the
Dred Scott decision and all. Remember!
that every vote cast for PPSEV and C'ASADY,
counts TWO towards the continuance in of
fice of that political mountebank, G. W.
JONES, who has misrepresented the people
of Iowa in the United States Senate during
the past four years. Remember! that every
vote cast for these men will be considered
as a protest against the establishment of
banks of issue. These arc not assertions,
but facts!—they should be remembered and
not lost sight of. REPUBLICANS! it behooves
you to be on the alert—to seo that every
Republican voter is at the polls. Do not
let this election go by default, ci.hcr thro'
apathy or neglect. Success is w.thin our
reach—we have but to use our best eforts,and
victory will pcrch upon our banner. We
have candidates every worthy our confidence
and support, and every person hating the
the success of our cause at heart, should be
at the polls early, and work manfully for
their election. See to it, thftt.you jave up
on your ballots the names of Lowa, Favuu,

Of late the Democratic organs of the
State have teemed with articles commenda

sued in the Senate of tho United States.—
The late Democratic State Convention en
dorsed his past course, and dubbed bim—
"sound on the goose." The General is a
candidate for re-election. The Dububu«

saying—"That NO MAN IIAD A RIGHT

The Democratic candidate for Senator in
this District, is following the lead of his
great prototype, BEN M. SAMCELS, on the
Bank question. At Sioux City and Ca.
houn, he touched upon the question lightly,
allowing the inference to be drawn, that ke
would not very strenuously opposo the es
tablishment of banks of issue. This was
done, because the speaker found himself in
a bank community, and wished to concili
ate bank men. lie does not come out bold
ly and manly and declare that he was either
opposed to, or in favor of, banks. At Cres
cent City, an anti-bank locality, he said be
regarded banks as a sort of commercial ne
cessity—that we now had no need of them,
and that the people of Iowa were not now
prepared to act in this matter—that the time
had not yet arrived, when the necessities of
trade and commerce required the establish
ment of banks. This wo regard as equiva
lent to snying, that if elected, he would use
his voice and vote against the crcation of
Banks. lie dare not say so openly, because
that would "knock into a cocked hat" his
nice laid schemes for securing the votes of
both bank and anti-bank men, and deprive
him of the benefit of the services he bad
rendered the party in "blowing hot and
cold," with the same breath, all over the
district.

The Great Steele."
The Louisville Journal wishes "to know
what justification, if any, the Democratic
organs set up for that scandalous business
of the fort Snclling reserve, where, ng the
countrv knows, an immensely valuable tract
was privately sold to chosen favorites at
five dollars per acre, when it would, at pub
lic auction or at private salo open to fair
competition, have bro'ught It least fifty or
one nundred dollars per acre.
"In truth, there can be no justification of
this vile job, nor any plausible apology for
it. It was neither more nor less than an
open, palpable, and direot sacrifice of a
large and important national interest to the
rewarding of partisan favorites. The thing
waa as bad as the grabbing of half a million
of dollars from the United States Treasury
for the same purpose would have been.
And the Administration, aye the President
himself, i. responsible for the iniquity,
whether he knew beforehand what was to be
done, and assented to it, or not. He cer
tainly knows now what has been done, and
assented to it by keeping in office those who
did it.

say one plausible word in extenuation of'the

Our neighbor nys, he has Men
"it staUi,"
that «ircnlar batted by Gov. GRIMCS, was
exhibited at a "political meeting Iteld in *ne
of th* Eastern counties," together with an
envolope "enclosing the same, upon which
was written in the hand-writing of His Ex
cellency, the Governor—'Charge to the Ex
ecutive Department!'" The next day, the
tame paper reiterated the charge, and pub
lished an article from tho Burlington Ga
zette, giving an account of the aforesaid
exhibition, locating the scene at Mt. Flea.
ant. The Bugle make. thi. the occasion of
a regular blood and thunder article, .ur
mounted by a "head" of magnificent pro
portions. The editor get. upon stilts, and
pitches in to the "treamry eaters," in a
manner worthy the palmiest days of Don
Quixotte. The plagues of Egypt, and the
onset of Wellington at Waterloo, were be
nignant windfalls, compared with this on
slaught upon Gov. Guns. Our neighbor
rings his changes upon the whole political
gamut, from the most sonorous bass of "ne
gro equality," to the most piercing alto of
"Bleeding Kansas." It is really refreshing
to read his disquisitions upon the Republi
can party—they are decidedly amusing. Hi.
eloquence upon "the way the money goes,"
is really touching, when taken in connec
tion with the present "hard time.," and
the tendency to suspension. Our neigh
bor assumes as fact what he has "seen
stated," and thereupon charges that Gov.
GRIMES has drawn upon the State Treasury
for "hundreds of thousands of dollar, to
enrieh party favorites," and to defray the
expenses of political campaigns. If this
charge were susceptible of any manner of
proof, there would undoubtedly be just
eause for our neighbors', diatribe upon offi
cial peculations.

The scene of the letter and envelope ex
hibition was located at Mt. Pleasant, by
the Burlington Gazette. The editor of the
Mt Pleasant Home Journal, says that he
furnished Mr. SAMUELS, with the letter spo
ken of by the Gazette—that Mr. SAMCELS
did not read it to the audience, but merely
quoted a line or two to suit his own pur.
poses, and that the words "charge to the
executive office" were not on the envelope.
"Mr. SAKCEI.S asserted that a Post Master
somewhero out West had told him that
such circulars bad passed through the office.
The Journal further says that Mr. O'CONNOR
"offered fifty dollars reward for such
franked circular, and the candidate of the
democracy backed square down and ac
knowledged that he had only been told so,
and couldn't vouch for the truth of the
story." The Post Master of this city who
was present was then appealed to and he
asserted that no "such document had ever
came to this office."
Here we have the "little joker," as he is—
a veritable myth—a democratic fabrication.
This is the way—and this the moans—the
Democratic party rely upon to impose upon
the people of Iowa. It will not win. Stick
a pin there.

OMAHA, Neb. Oct. 5th, 1857.
EDITOR or THE NEBRASKIAN :—Dear Sir:—
Allow me, through the columns of your pa
per, to expross to the business men and citi
zens of O.naha, my gratitude forthe general
expression of confidence which I have re
ceived at their hands since my return. The
causes which combined to produce the sus
pension of the institution with which I have
been connected, are known to vou in part—
a more particular explanation 1 shall reserve
for a future time. Since my return here a
few days since, I have determined that noth
ing shall be wanting on my part which shall
tend to restore the confidence formerly re
posed in the Western Exchange Bank. With
that view, I have made to the bankors of
this place, a statement of the affairs of the
bank, which I am assured bv them is entire
ly satisfactory and in addition to the assets,
which are of themselves sufficient to meet
the liabilities, have placed in the hands of a
trustee, securities equal in amount for the
further safety of depositors and the out
standing circulation.
I now leave again for the East—shall re
turn in thirty or forty days, resume business,
and probably bo able to meet in full all de
mands against us in sixty days, and posi
tive iu ninety days from date.
On my return, by the exercise of a deter
mination and well-directed cnergv, which
will not fail to secure success, I hope to
place the Western Exchange Bank on its
former footing, aud prove worthy-the con
tinued confidence of the public.
Yours respectfully,
L. R. TUTTLE.
After accepting tho assignment of the
"Western Exchange Fire & Marine Insu
rance Co.." the undersigned proceeded care
fully to examine its liabilities and its assets,
and the result is, that not a doubt exists in our
minds that the assests will greatly exceed
the liabilities. But in addition, property,
to the amount of nearly eighty thousand
dollars at a low valuation, has already been
conveyed for the benefit of the creditors,
every one of whom wo confidently believe
will be satisfied in less than ninety days.
We therefore feel no hesitation in giving
as our opinion, that the depositors ana note
holders should not make a sacrifice of one
cent.
This publication we think duo to all con
cerned. We certainly have no motive for
making any other than a true statement.

by Mr. Tuttle, was entirely satisfactorv, and
that in our opinion the securities which have

The Panic Cctilig,
A late number of the St. Louis Republican
ha. the following:
A good many merchants from the coun
try presented themselves in this city yester
day, and not a few thousand dollars came
with them. They were well received, aud
the money distributed to various parties.—
From this time until the season closes large
remittances will be received from our own
and the neighboring States, and an easy
money market will follow, if the people do
not insist upon being miserable and refuse
to be comforted. In a few days exchanges
wil be regulated, and then produce will find
a market, and the 'shriekers' about 'curren
cy' and the 'crisis' which was to try the
backbone of every man in the community,
will feel not a little ashamed of themselves.
The other class, too, who have been quietly
withdrawing their deposits from the vaults
of the Banks and Bankers, and hiding their
money away in dark corners and old stock
ings—little dreaming that expert burglar,
were always on the watch, and ready to ease
them of their treasure those who have
resolutely refused to accommodate their
friends with this money on any terms or for
mtj secarity, will feci rather sheepish if tbe
burglars should find it out, or that nobody

would have been guilty of the folly of get

A PmMeatla! Speetacls.
No one who has read the President's let
ter to Mr. Silliman and otheps has failed to
notice the magisterial tone in which it is
couched, as if his premises were unassaila
ble, his facts unquestionable, and his logic
inexorable and conclusive. And his parti
zans seem to regard it in the same light in
which its author evidently viewed it, as a
statement of thecase which put a final quie
tus upon the whole matter, and made an end
of all controversy forever. Now no cand'"
man of decent intelligence, familiar with tl
actual facts, the progress of sentiment under
Southern pressure, and the change of party
position and tactics, can help being disgust
ed at such gross perversity, such unblushing
impudence as this in a grave state paper,
put forth under the signiture of the Cnief
Magistrate of the nation, lie might assume
the position he takes, and defend it upon
grounds of expediency and State necessity
but to ignore notorious occurrences, facts
that have already 'taken their place in irre
versible history, that are certified to, sealed
and recorded among the archives of the na
tion—that is neither defensible nor decent.
Fortunately, without the citation of a single
fact about which there is any dispute or
doubt, without the necessity of an appeal
to any other document than such at^ the
President himself has furnished, there is
ample means for the most pointed and com-
refutation which can be rendered as
rief in statement as it is crushing in char
acter.
The great point is as to the lawful exist'
ence of slavery in Kansas, and the power of
the people and of Congrees over tne ques
tion. In his letter to Mr. Silliman he says
"Slavery existed at that period—when
•*he Kansas and Nebraska bill was passed—
and still exists in Kansas under the Consti
tution of the United States. This point has
at last been decided by the highest tribunal
known to our laws. How it could ever
have been seriously doubted is a mystery.—
If a confedcarntion of sovereign States ac
quire a new territory at the expense of their
common blood and treasure, surely one set
of the parties can have no right to exclude
the other from its enjoyments, by prohib
iting them from taking into it whatever is
recognised to be property by a common
constitution."
That is clear and decided. It has at least
the merit of frankness and plainness. It
says that tho Constitution took slavery there.
Consequently that Congress cannot prohibit
it, that the people cannot remove it, until
the formation of a State Constitution, and
that it is a mystery to him how all this could
ever have been doubted. Now no longer
ago than the few brief months that elapsed
since his nomination to the Presidency in
his public letter accepting that nomination
he said:
"This legislation—the Kansas and Ne
braska bill—is founded on principles as an
cient as Free Government itself, and in ac
cordance with them has simply declared that
the people of a Territory, like those of a
State, shall decide for themselves whether
slavery shall or shall not exist within its
limits."
Here is the clear and unequivocal an
nouncement that tho people of a Territory
have themselves the right to establish or
prohibit the institution prior to any arrange
ments for a State government regardless of
intci ferunue from aur quarter or bv any au
thority.
In his letter to Mr. Sanford, dated in 1848,
and extensively published last year, Mr.
Buchanan said.
"Having ur^ed the adoption of the Mis
souri Compromise, the inference is irresisti
ble that Congress, in my opinion, possesses
power to legislate upon the subject of sla
very in the Territories."
Here hp acknowledges himself one of the
original advocates of this very restriction
which was removed by the Kansas-Nebraska
bill, and proclaims the power of Congress to
legislate upon the subject.
So that, by his own words, sustained by
his own recorded votes and speeches, Con
gress has the power to prohibit slavery in
the Territories, the resident population have
the power to prohibit or establish it, and the
Constitution of the United States confers
this power upon Congress and the people,
and guaranties them in its exercise! And
yet, that any body else over should have en
tertained such sentiments for a single mo
ment, seems to him a matter of profound
astonishment!
Reader! is that not a spectacle for free
men to look upon with equal astonishment,
pity and regret
Trade and Commerce.
The Gate City says
Trade and Commerce are now going thro*
one of their irregular or inevitable gyrations.
Not long ago real estate, produce, etc.,
were worth more than money, comparative
ly speaking, and it took a good many dol
lars to buy a little. Now that thing'is re
versed, the other end of the beam is up, and
a few dollars will buy twice or three times
as much as they did. This is fortunate for
laborers, mechanics, merchants, editors, law
yers, and all who do not raise crops for
themselves, inasmuch as money is exceed
ingly searce and hard to get.
The news of suspensions in Eastern citics
and St. Louis spreads over the country with
a speed somewhat greater than Uncle Sam's
mails. It is refreshing to learn that conse
quent upon the suspensions, every body feels
easier, stocks go up, interest goes down,
and money begins to come out. The panic
'frill soon end as it begun, without reason.
The Moar Market—The Protpecl.'
There is little use in attempting to delude
ourselves or our readers with the fiction
that the money market is easier, or that
public confidence points with any degree of
certainty to a more harmonious working of
the commercial machinery of the country,
either in this month or next. Western men
must make up their minds to go through a
winter of extraordinary pressure and we
believe it is better for them and all concern
ed to have a comprehension of the fact now.
The season of navigation is drawing to a
close, and there is no prospect that any con
siderable portion of the immense surplus of
the country's products will go forward to a
iiarket. All arrangements for facilitating
its transit, on a scale commensurate with
#.e country's wants, seem to come to naught.
The shipments, it is true, at this moment are
birge: but our warehouses illy bear tho drain.
The difficulty is further back—the farmer,
are unwilling to sell at the rates that are
likely to rule during the fall nnd if thev
were, but little more than forty days remain
in which to carry off the tens of millions of
bushels that we can spare. We trast that
enough may be done before the ice shuts up
the straits, to prevent the calamities that
would befal us if shipment, should stop
now but, so complete is the disorganisation
of the credit system that we can hope for
no more.

creditors.
