To the free and unpledged voters of Good

Representative to the State Legislature.
PERRY D. MARTIN.
OUR COUNTY TICKET
It is with more than ordinary satisfaction
that we present to every good citizen of
Goodhue the county ticket placed in nomi
nation by the Democratic County Conven
tion. Democrats have good reason to be
proud both of the Convention and the can
didates nominated. The Convention made
these judicious selections with the sole pur
pose of promoting the good of every tax
payer in the county, by recommending to
their suffrages, only the very best citizens
amongst us. The people of Goodhue know
them all, and respect them all, for their abil
ity and integrity. In this respect, what a
striking contrast is presented to the Repub
lican Convention and its candidates.
Norris Uobart, of Milton, is our candi
date for State Senator. He is known to all
and a more worthy man cannot be found.
His labors among the people in the avoca
tion to which his life has been devoted, are
known to all. His ability, his candor, and
his great private worth, commend him to
the peoples' support.
J. C. Weatherby, of Red Wing, heads
our ticket for members of the House. The
oldest merchant in our city, he has deserved,
and possessed, the high regard, and esteem,
Which justly belongs to any man with his
purity of character. Intelligent, reserved
and kind-hearted, he has won and kept,
more personal friends, than any man of our
William Rock, of Pine Island, is also
nominated for the Legislature. He is a man
whom all that know, respect and esteem for
his many high qualities of head and heart,
lie is an old citizen of the county—is fa
miliar with all our wants, and will make, by
his talents and education, a most efficient
Wm. P. Tanner, of Cannon Falls, is also
in nomination. Mr. Tanner is the Supervi
sor from Cannon Falls. Last fall he ran the
highest on the Democratic county tiaket for
Representative. He is a man of marked ef
ficiency andexperience. Respected by all,
tad will make a superior man for Represen
Evert Westervelt, of Florence, is the
fourth candidate for Representative. He
was among tho first settlers of the county, was made
and has always been esteemed for his gene
r»sity, kindness and intelligence. Hede
serves to be your Representative.
This ticket is worthy and well qualified,
and should be, and will be, elected. Com
pared with the ticket of the opposition, its
merits will beseen, and the majority in this
county owe it to their own dignity and self
respect, that the Republican ticket of tools
to a clique, forced upon that party by a
clique, should be defeated. Otherwise, a clamation.
party and a county are humbled by wearing
a master's collar about the neck.
J. C. Pierce, of Rod Wing, is nominated
for County Treasurer. This important office
will be administered faithfully and to the
advantage of all the people, if Mr. Pierce is
elected. He will not farm out the office to
an irresponsible and unscrupulous partizan.
He has a stake in the county, and will labor
to promote ils prosperity as a matter of per
sonal interest Mr. Pierce is obliging, ca

A E DEMOCRACY.
COL. QKAHAM & GKN. SHIELDS.
On the evening of Tuesday of this week,
tho day upon which our County Conven
tion was held, the Court House was crowd
ed with the citizens) of our town, who had!
turned out en mane to hear speeches by
Col. Graham, and Gen. Shields who hav
ing fought side the enemies of their country
in Mexico, are again together gallantly bat
tling them in Minnesota. And as they
conquered them there so will they here.
Mr. Graham opened the meeting, and
though extremely unwell, spoke in his usual
clear, forcible and logical manner on nation
al topics. Showing how tho opposition
made a hobby of every new humbug and
imposture. Spoke of the bad effect on the
the country of the agitation of the slavery
question,which so far from benefitting orever
promising to benefit a single slave, had en
tirely stopped the emancipation movement
that previous to its advent was going on glo
riously in several southern States. Por
trayed its mournful results iu dividing and
the churches and thus dissolv
ing one of the strongest ties that bound to
gether the North and the South, and dem
onstrated that the only way to remedy this
evil was to take the question out of the na
tional councils, and confine it to the locali
ties where it properly belongs—the States
or territories where it may be proposed to
tablish or abolish slavery.
He.then referred to the homestead bill.
Proved that Mr. Kelly of New York and
not Mr. Grow, as the Republicans claim,
introduced it into the House. Our Senators
and Representatives worked tor it because
they thought it might be amended after it
passed but as it passed the house it amount
ed to nothing. There are three forties in
this land district which it would cover, and
two of those are forty feet under water
It did not cover enough of land in Minne
sota to make a good farm, and as the lands
in the other Northwestern States, had en
tered the graduating list, it but a small por
tion of them. He would advocate a free
homestead for every settler regardless of the
kind of land occupied. Lie did not call
in question the honesty of Mr. Kelly or Mr.
Grow, but he did not believe either of them
was conversant enough with our land sys
tem to draft a homestead bill covering the
whole ground: He laid he had many warm
personal friends here who would vote against
him—all he asked at their hands was a fair
and honorable conduct of the canvass. With
a declaration of his national sympathies he
then concluded a speech that effectually ap
pealed to the heart and the understanding of
every honest man.
Gen. Shields then took the stand. He
made a few remarks in regard to the home
stead bill, lie always believed in the prin
ciple, and had advocated it before the Re
publican party was born. Mr.Ramsey was
then its active enemy. He always voted
for the bill falsely claimed aS Grow's, in ths
senate last winter, until, the Republicans
undertook to use it as a club with which
to. kill the appropriation bills, among which
was one establishing a mail route from St.
Paul to Puget's sound, andgiving Minneso
ta more land, and more money, and which
which would have done her more benefit
than forty sham measures like Grow's
He then gave his views on State policy.
The Republicans were continually grumb
ling and howling and caterwauling about the
fix we were in, and the manner in which
we got in, but show us no honorable and
practical way to get out. His plan was to
make an arrangement with the Railroad
companies, that they are not to draw the
remainder of the $5,000,000 loan. They
are to agree if the State will make good the
outstanding bonds to pay the interest on
them for three years then, the State to
make the bonds over to the companies, and
(he companies pay to the State interest on
the bonds yearly, at a certain per cent per
annum, and with the money so receiv
ed the State to form a sinking fund, out of
which to pay the interest, and eventually the
principle of the $2,500,000 without taxing
the people one red cent. This policy had
worked well in Illinois, when she was fifteen
millions out and had less work done on her
roads than Minnesota lias, and it would
work well here.
He then spoke ably and eloquently on
the principles and policy of the Democratic
party and closed amid a storm of applause.
Threo thundering cheers for the Democracy
and one of the largest and most enthusiastic
meetings of the campaign, dispersed.
W A A CHANGE.
A certain clique of Republicans, who are
*n the hapit of congregating around a certain
green grbcrey in this town, the day previous
to the late Republican meeting, were
heard styling the Rev. Metthew Sorin, "a
foul blot on their party," a 'nightmare that
they would be glad to shake off," and the
reason they allowed him to speak at their
meeting was to show the "people hew
little he knew," and what a "political ass it
The misrepresentations of the Republican
speakers in regard to the Homestead Bill,
goes upon tne4assumption that "alie well
stuck tojjs ai goodas tho truth." Wo./re
produce-ibeGrow Homestead Bill, which is
"That any person who is the head of a
family, or whornas arrived at the age *f
twenty-one years and is a Citizen of the
United States or who shall have filed his
intention to become such, as required by the
naturalization laws of the United States,
shall from and after the passage of this act,
bo entilod to enter free of cost, one quarter
section of vacant and unappropriated public
land which may, at the time the aplication
is made, be.subject to private, entry, at $1,25
per acre, or a quantity equal thereto, to be
located in a body, in conformity with the
legal subdivisions of the public lands, and
after the same shall have been serveyed."
Our readers will recollect that this law
was copied from a Republican tract, and the
Republicans can not and do not deny it.
The operations of this law are confined
to such Innds as are subject to private en
try," at the minimum government price of
$1,25 per acre. It does not apply to any of
the lands in this State, for nearly all have
never been subject to private entry, having
never been offered at public sale. It does
not apply to buta little land in the older
States, because such lands are fallen into the
class of lands known as "the graduated
The bill is consequantly wholly inopera
tive in this State, and nearly so elsewhere
If the latv had passed it would have directed
the emigrant's attention to other States,
and proved in its practical operations a pos
itive injury to our State, by turning emi
gration from our borders. Messrs. Phelps
and Cavanaugh, in their speeches, deprecated
the character of the bill, and as Mr. Grow
well knows, and will doubtless admit, at
tempted to get it amended, but the bill was
put under the operations of the previous
question, and all amendments arbitrarily cut
off. It was recognizing a right and benefi
cial principle, and they sustained it.
Again, the Homestead Bill is stolen plun
der. The Grow Bill, so called, is the bill of
the Hon. John Kelly, of New York, as true
a Democrat as ever breathed. Mr. Grow
need not, and probably does not, take much
credit in the matter. He was shown to be,
and will pro! ably admit, that he knows noth
ing of our land system, and with the very
best intentions might form a bill that would
vitally destroy the prosperity of the West.
Your interests at the national capitol should
be in. the hands of such men as Mr. Gra
ham, who know your interests, and have
practical information upon the great sub
jects that affect your well being.
Since the above was iu type, our atten
tion was called toa stupid article in the last
Republican, on the subject, Which is illus
trative of the unfair and dishonest course of
the opposition. The Republican claims that
Mr. Grow's amendmeat (for which amend
ment we give all due credit) that the lands
should not be sold until ten years after the
public surveys, &c, was a part and parcel
of the Homestead Bill. This is not so. It
wasan amendment made to a bill in rela
tion to preemptors, introduced by Mr. Cobb,
of Alabama, andno one ever desired it at
tached to the Homestead Bill. It was in
consistent with it. Tbe statement of the
Republican is merely a falsehood, and if it
is content to utter such false statements, it
ought to lose all its credit for truth or can
dor among all honorable or truth-loving
citizens. It is driven to this poor shift, af
ter the exposure of the hollow hyyocrisy
and ignorance manifested on Grow's much
lauded Homestead Bill."
E E I A N MEETING.
There is in this world, much to praise,
blame and endorse, but far more to pity
"This meeting is as good as a theatre," said
a prominent Republican to us but it was a
theatre with the programme reversed. The
comedy came first, the scene shifting was
done, all at once in the middle and the
heavy parts came last.
Elder Sorin made his "spoke," and as
his position was humiliating, hisspeech was
its fruit. The scowling bitterness ot his
sarcasm, when he had addressed "Mr.
-Skiirman," and laid open the wounds of the
party was refreshing. McClaren had beat
en him and his vindictive contempt, for "Mr.
Chairman," was all that relieved the effort
of the Elder. Yet his position would draw
pity from stones. There he was kissing
the rod that smote him, and for Our lives,
we could not but recall the soene ot .Pick
wick with the shyster attorney, who had
prosecuted him upon an unjust charge. Mr.
Pickwick was indignant and used hard
Words but the attorney could not bring suit
for hard words, so he said to the indignant

would like to kick me," and he withdrew
his ample coat tail for that purpose. Ac

We,hoped to record a more honorable,
fair and honest Speech, from the elder.—
His character demanded it.! ,A proper, self

That night he humbly did homage to the his ignorance. We advise him to read the
laws of South Carolina which he. so shame
fully belied. We pity his attempts to mis

Idol and the next day, Mr. Sorin, was the
biggun—fit to succeed Shields in the Senate,
and altogether the smartest man in this part
of the world. Disinterested men! Impar-j cause any schcol boy can tell what it means,

Fanaticism often times becomes respect
able because it is honest, earnest and de
cent but its excessive manifestation, in
man is bad enough, in woman disgusting.—
Heads dropped and surprised shame like
an electric shock, went through the audience
when a woman arose and called for "three
cheers for Elder Sorin." Blushes long since
went out of fashion, but for appearance sake
a.tinge, ofmodesty should remain.
Hon. Mr. Woodford was announced. Hold
thatyoung man He told us he was from
down East often enough to have us re
member it, and when he told that he ac
tually broke away from his mother's apron
strings, the astonished audience, hardly: 1
lieved it, and looked around for some res
pectable matron With a basket of necessary
articles and a nursing bottle. Hon. Mr.
Woodford was hyfalutin, was vocifererous,
was theatrical, was full of words and froth,
and finally concluded by vanishing through
a bunghole. Hon. Mr. Woodford is import
ed stock. He came all the way from New
York to tell the people: of Minnesota, that
Stephen A. Douglas, the great Statesman of
the Northwest, the representative man of a,
popular idea, our long and devoted .friend,
was a political pigmy. Hon. Mr. Woodford
says so and Hon. Mr. Woodford knows,
for has not the Hon. Mr. Woodford
heard that somebody saw the Mediterranean
who never saw it before. We can only
say in conclusion,^hat Hon. Mr. Woodford
did not shake his.head off, and will probably
get back to that apron string.
Hon. David Cooper, the complete letter
writer, did the heavy acting. He told us
he was going to be dry—the result verified
his prediction. He graciously informed us
that was going to be exceedingly dry—it
proved to be the only truth to which he
gave utterance. He poked along slowly.
The audience began to leave he told them to
stay and hear one more point they waited:
but one more point, followed one more point
till they could not be gulled by promises,
and with one accord arose, and left hi:u
"alone in his glory." As we don?t think his
speech did justice to his talents we give be
low his most fininished literary production
—a perfect gem of a letter—embodying Life
ideas in regard to tbe best way of obtaining a
reputation. Read what he would like to
have Mr. Owens, the Minnc&oiiaiJs editor
in 1855, say in regard to him, on his return
from a visit to Washington
BATTLE CHEEK, MICH., April 28, 18o5.
To John P. Owins, Esq.,
MY DEAR SIR:—For various reasons I
desire you to notice my arrival in the Terri
tory, as soon as/get there, with such re
marks respecting nvij winter's residence at
Washington, as you may deem proper and
wish you particuarly to refer to two
measures, in which was an active partici
pant. would suggest something like this:
We are glad to announce the arrival at
home by yesterday!* steamer, of the Hon.
David Cooper, who has been absent at the
city of Washington, since the meeting of
Congress in December last.
To no man, always saving and excepting
our worthy Delegate, are the people of
Minnesota more indebted for the success ot
various measures before Congress, in whih
they were deeply interested, than to him
whoso arrival we have had the pleasure to
announce. And especially are tho citizens
on the Reserve, on the west side of the river
indebted for the success of the bill extending
to settlers thereon the right of pre emtion,
and to the citizens of "Minneapolis the
benefits of the act of 1844, respecting the
right to enter town sites for we are well
assured that to his influence, and that
which he was able to control through his
brother, the honorable Senator from Penn
sylvania, mainly depended the passage o!
that bill through the Senate. In saying
this, and doing justice to our fellow towns
man, we are far from intimating a want of
zeal or influence on the part of tho Hon.
H. M. Rice but it was introduced iu the
Senate near the close of the session, when
our Delegate's presence was continually
in the House, and confined the fate of this
measure to the gentleman whose name
heads this article.
With respect to the great measure of
the sesion—the defeating of the resolution
annulling the charter of the Minnesota and
North-Western Railroad Company, it was
he alone, who had charge of it, and it was
to his assiduous and indefatigable exertions
that the resolution met with such an over
whelming defeat in the Senate. That this
required no slight labor and inflnence, is
sufficiently manifested from the feelin"
evinced by the vote of the House, on the
passage of the resolution through that
body, a feeling got up by falsely represen
ting the wishes of the people of Minnesota,
and the character and conduct of tho Min
nesota and Northwestern Railroad Com
Phis feeling had to be overcome, and
these falsehoods counteracted. The duty
of doing thisdevelved upon him, and wor
thily did he perform it. We bid him wel
come home, and are glad to know that ho
intends to remain among us and devote
himself sedulously to his profession.
This is to long but these are the ideas

at Cincinnati on the 9th, and received the
most enthusiastic reception ever awarded to
a statesman in that city. The Cincmatti
A number of persons fainted and were
taken from the crowd with much difficulty,
on account of the great pressure on every
side. So great was the desire to hear
Douglas, that some men offered five dollars
for a seat in the windows of the houses op
posite the stand.
A groat many persons had come from
the country, as well as from various towns
in this State, Indiana and Kentucky in

A few minutes after eight o'clock Judge
Douglas arrived on the ground, but some
time passed before his carriage reached the
