23 or SO years of age, quits a small man, had

his pockets, was written, "T. B. TiHanj, lit

sometime ago, gone into Kansas ar.d had been

Mb. Editor: I notice in a communication
written while in Souix City, that I say that
Sioux City lost the county seat That asser
tion is not true, and must be either a mistake
of yours or mine. The county seat was estab
lished atLoyd'a Bluff, or old Sergeant's Bluff,
and then it was claimed that by a vote of the
county it wa3 located at Sergeant -Bluff Citj
At their last election the question wa3 regular
ly brought before tho voters of Woodbury
county, and tho question of the seat of justice
I was decided in favor of Sioux City, - r
I also notice another mistake of my own in
saying the steamer Emma was above on a sand
bar. It was the Clara.
Our trip to upper Nebraska and the Terri
tory of Minnesota, was very pleasant The
river there is very crooked and undergoing' a
constant change of channel, creating extensive
sand bars, cultirg off landings, and leaving
town sites where it was least expected. In
deed, there appears to be no security or cer

JL W. Furn-as.-'Esq.: '; ' :
Dear Sia: After leaving Sommerset, I
endeavored to follow the line of the Daven
port and Council bluffs railroad survey, as
much as practicable, but encountered many ob
stacles on the way, in consequence of crossing
streams, &c, and, therefore, was compelled to
1 i ft .t . 1
leave iuo route, ana ionow inc roaas. uemg
snxions to learn something more definitely as
to tho point of its intersection with the Mis
souri valley, I pnssed over to the Pigeon val
ley, which, by the way, includes some large
and -well cultivated farms, and entered the
Missouri bottom at Crescent City. There, rath
er Unexpectedly, I; found a very convenient
store hotist?, 20 by 40, well supplied with mer
chandise; together with a crowd of wagons
and customers in waiting, which led ine to en
qnire where they came from, and was informed
that thero was a heavy settlement to the east
and north pf them and, indeed, all around
them which had heretofore been supplied by
Council Bluffs as their place of trade. I no
ticed the lumber on the ground for another
store house. Horo for an eating housa. Ths
materials for the Hotel, and the 'dwelling of
the editor c f a rew paper to .be issued there
this fall; the printing material already having
been sent for, and the mency remitted., . Their
steam saw mill was nearly ready to commence
operations.' ' Several families are residing in
the town, and everything denotes life and en
ergy on the part of tho proprietors of the
town. Thijy are refusing to sell some lots at
one hundred dollars, although they wilUdo-
nate a lot to any person who will erect a suita
ble house thereon. There are two water mills
near by, and in sight. A company is
tivelj engaged in the brick business, and are
making rapid progress although they com
menced late. . The mail passes there, six times
a week, to and from Council Bluffs and Sioux
City. The? have an excellent river landing
not to be excelled on the Missouri.
Any person who has once traveled over this
section f country which could not poswibly
have beeri many years since and thi.s year
take another trip, bo could come to no other
conclision than that "this'-, was decidedly the
fast country,- and tho fast age." It matters not,
rtpjK-jrectlr, what" injjediments throw I. he ni
sei res in the way; the conclusion is,, they
must and iball ba overcome. --.

To those who have hni the pl?;tsuro of secirjf tni . ,

without any exception whatever, ihe boach. Fronx,
tho mouth of Weeping Water for a distance of threw
fourths of a mile down, is nearly in a straight line.
and is a perfect rock base; in some places already
graded. Tho bluff is low, and full of the best Iimw
and sandstone rock in the Territory, and abundant
enough to supply a Iarg) city for til future agog, fur
building, paving, fcc. There are extensive bodies of
timber in the imiaouiate vicinity, ert both sdcy of
the River; stona-coal, lima and sand-stone abound:
throughout the wholo valley of the Weeping Water,
The bluff, from a- few feet above bigh watf mark,"
slopes up at an angle of about six degrees, far a dis-T
tance ot one-fonrta of a mue, ticn spreads ont lato
tho most DcaQUiuI taMe lanas, presenting to view
the most romantic and magniScient Ianclare ever-
beheld by the eye of man. The surrounding eotii-;
try is watered by the almost innumerable tributaries
of the Weeping Water, (so celebrated iri rosiance
and Indifln tradition,) and is the finest f irming re
gion in the Western country. Wyoming lies duw
West of Sidney, Clarinda, Bedford, ftoornflold.;
Kcosauqua and Burlington, and is thobost tcrminTi i
for a railroad on the Missouri river, and the best
