is at work. We venture to say that no
part of tlie Territory is better settled, or
settled with a better class of inhabitants,
than tlie country hack, or west, of IJelle-
vue. To all this region of country,
as well as to a vast region' farth't
inland, Bellevui is the natural outlet.
It will le tho market place for the pro
duce of the soil. It will be the store
house of merchandise, whence-the agri
cultural population will derive its supplies.

and northerly for two or three miles,
and imtli ha northern pert is washed by
the turbid waters of the Missouri. On
the eastern part of the plateau, fronting
on the river, our city, Uellevue, is situated,
and from the southernmost to the north
ernmost point, we look down upon its
waters. The river bank for one-half
a mile, in front of the northern part of
the town, is one solid body of limestone,
extending under the 1hi1 of the-(ream,
and rising on shore from ten to fifteen
feet This rock Is easily quarried, and
will furnish sufficient material for the
building of a large city. At this point
the Missouri is very narrow, and the
bed of the stream unchangeable t and
here is, undoubtedly, the best crossing, for
boat or bridge, to be found along its en
tire length. Our town is as yet in its
infancy. No extraordinary efforts have
beeu inudo to build it up. The city lots
were divided but a few weeks ago, until
which no sales could be made, and hence
building was retarded.". Several large
aud substantial dwellings have been built,
have'er, and many more ore in course
of construction. The demand for lumber
and mechanics' is far beyond the supply.
Ninety thousand feet of pine luniler lund
ed at our levee last week, was disposed of
almost as soon as landed. The machinery
for a nowerful uuw-uiill has just arrived,
and is to be put in operutiotr as soon as
possible, and this will aid our citizens in
obtaining lumber; but we have no idea
it will half supply the demand.
We have now two large hotels, which
will compare favorably with any in tlie
western country. We have four stores,
but from present indications we fear our
merchants under-estimated the demand
for goods, and that before mid-winter
their stocks will be exhausted. The
"Fonteuelle Ikink of Bellevue," lately
established, is doing a flourishing busi
uess. The farmers are brindncr the
fruits of their industry to market, and
every pursuit seems to be fluurishimr.
Lots are cheap compared with other places,
ana a uuerai disposition manifested, by
holders to encourage settler.
- Ik-llevue evidently has a bright future
before her. She can wand, and she' is
willing to stand, upon- her own merits.
She descends to no unfair rivalry with
any place. With all her local advan
tages, and with enterprise and industry,
the can take care of nerself, and at the
same time rejoice in tlie prosperity of her
j sister rities io the Territory.

Artillery, the Nation Lancers, and
Light Dragoons. Tlfcprocession was
over two hours in passing a j;iven point,

special attractions was a new and beaitfi

and others. The procession reached the
site of the Statue at the west front of the
City Hall soon after 3 o'clock. Here
several thousand took possession of the
temporary seats and platform, while other
thousands filled every sianding-place in
the vicinity. The drapery which had
hitherto .concealed the Statue was then
raised, when it was greeted with thunders
of applause. The exercises consisted of
music by the band, singing by the pupils
of the Kiblio Schools, prayer by the Rev.

on Lake Michigan.
Tho steamer Niagara, of the Cotling
wxvl line, was destroyed by fire near
Tort Washington, on Lake Michigan, at
4 o'clock, P. M., ou Wednesday,. Sept.
21tl. The particulars are as follows:
The Ningarn left Collingwood on Mon-
dny afternoon at c'ctoHt , fn place of th
UeVstone Stae, tlie regular steamer for
that day. She started with from 'on
hundred and fifty to one hundrod and
seventy-five passengers, twenty-five or
thirty of whom she landed at Sheboygan,
the gre.'iter portion of whom were steer
age pctrssf ngers. At about 2 o'clock, P.
M., cf Wednesday, the Niaeara left She-
lioygan, and about two hours afterwards
was discovered, to bo on fire. When the
fire was first" discovered there was but
little sea ou, awl the wind was about
south-east, and light. At this time the
Niagara was from three to four miles off
North Point Washinon,, and some ten
miles or more this side , of Sheboygan.
As soon as the fire was discovered, Capt,
Miller, who a.ileJji. was called, nnd
the Bteam-puaTps xet .to-work. '"A few
moments after this, the passengers be
came aware that the boat was on fire, and
scene ensued, which, said a passenger.
"beggars all description consternation
seized" upon almost every one, and men
women and children rushed to and fro
about the boat, shouting and crying. Not
half-a-dozen passengers guve any old to
the crew, and but few attempted to make
provision for their own or friends escape,
It was but a short time from the first dis
covery of the firo until the whole upper
cabin was in flames. During this time a
large number of passengers had jumped
overboard without anything to support
them in the water, and- in a few moments
sank. Mothers threw their children into
the lake and wildly sprang after them.
The water was intensely cold, and none
but the hardiest persons could live in it
more than a few moments. A large
number of passengers, before the steamer
fetopped, in 6pite of the appeals of the
mate, got into the stern boat and lowered
it, when it instantly swamped, and all in
it were drowned. Another portion of the
passengers filled tho starboard quarter
boat, and lowered that atao, and all found
a watery grave.
Before the upper cabin was in flames,
a . portion of the more self-possessed of
the passengers wrenched the state-room
doors off and threw them into the water, r
-wgther -with tdUf chairSfstoolfl-&c.
.0 r. . , ,
and upon these nJany of those in the
water saved themselves. After it had
become- nseless to remain on board any
longer, the second engineer, carpenter,
and a portion of the crew, together with
a number of passengers twenty-two per
sons in all lowered away the larboard
quarter boat and pulled to the shore,
where the passengers were landed, and
tlie crew returned with the boat to render
any assistance they might be able. Capt.
Miller, with a number of others, saved
themselves by clinging to the wheel, and
were picked up by the boats.
The steamer Traveler, propeller Il
linois, schooner Dan Marble, and two
small schooners and the life-boat at Port
Washington, came to .the assistance of the
Niagara, and made every possible exer
tion to save life. Their boats were all
manned ' and lowered as soon as they
came near enough the burning wreck to
be of any service, and kept at work until
nearly 9 o'clock at night, when all Ihe
persons who could be found in the water,
after thorough seaching for a considerable
distance round the wreck, were carried
into Port Washington.
The propeller Illinois picked up some
thirty persons, and landed them at Tort
Washington, but when the Traveler left
it was impossible J obtain their names,
It is supposed that .but two women were
saved, though there wore some twenty on
