    Democracy is true to itself in Nebraska as well as South Carolina. On the 9th inst. Gov. Black solemnly vetoed the [bid?] for the abolition of slavery in the Territory. The following is the record of the transaction in the Omaha Nebraskian of the 10th:

    “A message was received from His Excellency, Governor Samuel W. Black at the hands of his private Secretary, John [illegible], returning the Council bill for the prohibition of Slavery in the Territory of Nebraska, together with his objections thereto.

    “[We shall publish the Governor’s veto of the Slavery bill in full to-morrow. The lobby of the Council chamber was crowded during the reading of the veto which was somewhat lengthy, but was listened to with intense interest.]

    “On motion of Mr. [Furnns?], 500 copies of the veto message were ordered printed, and the bill made a special order for Wednesday next at ten o’clock.”

    Samuel W. Black was Governor of the Nebraska Territory
