Deas SrR-One of the stockholders in the
Bank of Florence lias arrived, and brings glad
tidings in reference to the Railroad in the di
rection to this places He assures our citizens
that there is but little doubt of the road being
located down the Pigeon Valley to its inter
section with the Missouri valley at Crescent
City, Iowa.
The roads are tow in good condition for
traveling, end our ride over the level bottom
to Crescent was very, pleasant. There we
fou jd the improvements, and busineus far be
yond our most sanguine expectations. , Mr.
Steele, of Florence, has already ; added an
extensive addition to Crescent, and made sale
of a large number of lots, some of which run
as high as $150 each, and land shares in town
sold a few" days since at three hundred dollars
per acre. ' . -.
Our road to Council Bluffs was more an?;
dulatiig; leading up and down the several
Kanycns between the towns, nevertheless a
pleasat t road, with, varying scenery, which
assists much in intercepting the dull monotony
of the travel.
At Ellisdale we drove up, expecting to wit
ness Jo. Johnson up to his eyes in exchanges
preparatory, of course, for the next issue of
the Bugle,' but instead of that he was elbow
deep in brick and mortar and laying up a wall
of a shingle furnace, and expecting to furnish
Crescent with roofing material for the year to
come. He carries on a large farm, and is build
ing largely in Crescent, besides being a partner
in a mercantile establishment there which is
doinz -an extensive and profitable trade. He
turns bis hands to any kind of labor that coin es
in his way, with much ease and judgement.
This is something of the life of an editor in
the West. -
In Council Bluffs we found considerable
anxiety in reference to the general result cf the
Presidential election, also the desire to learn
the vote cf some of the more doubtful North-
em States. Bets had been running high, and
no doubt many felt as if the purse strings were
to be considerably effected by the minority and
majority. reports. The Iiepublican party, ac
knowledged whipped, but nevertheles s claimed
that they had gained much by the campaign ,
A railroad survey had just been completed
at Council Bluff which appeared to be a mat
ter of rejoicing among the inhabitants, and
those more deeply interested in the way of
corner lots. I noticed the city limits had been
extended two miles South of the Pacific House
and over a mile West, making the extremes
of its boundaries about three" miles distant
from each other and judging from what we
could hear that the town wll exterd its limits
rapidly towards the Missouri river. Advance
ment in prices among real estate dealers is very
perceptible and many , are found desirous of
At Glen wood we found the citizens rejoic
ing over the news recently received that the
M. &.M. Ptailroad would be extended through
Mills county to terminate opposite Plattsmouth
in the Territory of Nebraska. Nebraska City,
St Mary, Bellevue and La Piatt are alj
endeavoring to draw the terminous of the road;
and are bidding high in the way of stock and
donations, but they all appear from the surveys
to be too far froH a direct line. Since it has
been ascertained, by an actual survey of a line
for a rail road up the Platte, that the route is
practicable aud expedient, and that no diffi-
culty exists in reference to getting in and oa
of Plattsmouth, that town has taken a new
start in the way of improvement, and it is now
no more a matter of doubt as to the building
of a town at that point. Holders are now
asking a thousand dollars a snare, and lots are
selling at great advances above the prices a few
months since. ; ; . . j .
The reports of the election in Cass county
had not been sufficiently received, to give you
the result. " ' ; :, !
. In St. Mary we were shown a plat of the
town; which drew the premium medal in St.
Louis over all similar competition.' Of course
it is a superior piece of penmanship, and shows
the extraordinary skill of the draftsmen Messrs.
Seegar and Skemonnski, of St. Mary, Iowa.
On the border was placed views of Council
Bluff, Omaha, Belview, St. Mary, Glenwood
and surrounding scenery; also, the united
plats of the counties of Cass, Douglass and
Washington, in Nebraska; and , Mills and
Pottawattamie counties, Iowa. . It is useless
for me to undertake a description of the plat
for it is only, to be seen to be known and ap
preciated.- From the .level taken, it appears
from notes that St. Mary is nine feet above the
highest water CV.rk known.
The town is inhabited with Germans, and
we were informed that there was only one
American residing within the limits. We had
about arrived at that conclusion from the fact
that during our sojourn at one of the public
houses we heard nothing but the German
dialect, except a faint effort occasionally to
show that they were not entirely destitute of
the English language.
We noticed there a very simply constructed
wind mill for the purpose cf manufacturing
shingles, which performed well and with much
profit to' the proprietors. The entire mill only
cost about two liundred dollars. I think sim
ilar machinery erected in many of our Ne1
braska towns would be a profitable investment,
and a great convenience to the citizens.
Bellnre is also spreading its limits by ad
ditions,- probably with the expectation of divid
ing Douglass county and locating a county
seat at that place, which question is already
agitated, and will be urged during the Session
next Winter. , .
On arriving at Omaha we ascertained that
difficulties existed somewhere in the ncigh-bor
hood in reference to the claim of a young man
who had recently died in town, and had been
jumped up some unprincipled man on the day
of the burial. The citizens took it in ban
and on further investigation it was ascertained
that the miscreant was a Dutch pettifoger wh
resides here in town. He appeared1 determined
to hold it right or wrong,- and did net field his
claim tcrit nntil the people met in mass, end
passed resolutions c'ondemnitcry cf his course,
and resolved to" put him sccross the river if he
did not comply. Thieves 6"nly submit, when
overtaken in their evil deeds, and are compell
ed to surrender. "Claim jumpers" have poor

By this you will see that there is already as
many voters out of Omaha as in it, but it is not
so with Council Bluff, as there you perceive
but few outside the City. Outside of Omaha
there arc four hundred and seventy-nine Voters,
and outside of Council Bluff one hundred and
eighty seven voters; making , a difference out

ninety-two in favor of Douglass county,

Mr. Smith suffered a most horrible death at
Southland, in Woodbuty county. He was
engaged as sawyer in the new steam mill at
that place, and whilst gigging back . the car
riage,' got his foot caught by the 6aw, which
split his leg nearly the whole length before
he could withdraw it, then "by an uncontrolla
ble destiny hr.s body fell across the log before
the saw and was severed near the middle, most
horribly mutilating,- in fact, cutting the body
into numerous pieces, which were gathered and
decently interred. - ' ' ' : ' '
The deceased left a wife and two children.
' The Editor of the Keokuk Times congrat
ulates his readears upon the sound of the
steam whistle, "for the first time in the Valley

It is reported that Manypenny has been re
moved, and the land sales, in Kansas, past-
