tages and develope its own resources, it I
need fear no rival. If we consider the
section cf country which is naturally de-
' pendent upon this place as an outlet and
market for its produce, we find that near-
Iv all cf that Dortion cf country extend-
isg north about fifty miles from the Kan-
fas line, and west as far back as settle-
ments are likelv to extend, embracing
the 'finest portion cf Nebraska, andcon:
: tainicg within its limits tlx . organized
counties ; to-wit: Nemaha, Johnson, Paw
nee, Gage and Clay, is mainly tributary
to Erownville. The settlers of these six
ccur.tie?, excepting perhaps those in the
eastern rart of Richardson, and the
rt cf Clay, will find this the
neartil nr,d most accessible point cn the
Missouri river ; and unless attracted by
crne unnatural influence will eventually
make this point their market place. If
ruch has not been the esse, heretofore it
is to be accounted for bv the fart thnt the
RPttlnrs h,T-p V.ppn pA tn RiintMKto tbt the I .
nisrehants cf Erownville were not fur-
dished with such supplies as they needed,
end that they could make their purchas-
es to better advantage -at older and lar-
ger places; and also from the fact that
the principal road extending from the riv
er to the interior, starts from Nebraska
City ; and people find it more convenient,
in a new country, to go a little further,
and follo.v well beaten routes, however
bad, than to go to the trouble of seeking
nearcnes, ana new crossing places ma
country so difficult to traverse as ours.
. Heretofore a greater portion of the
tettlers cf Gage and Clay counties have
rtade Nebraska City their trading point,
for the two reasons above mentioned
;And it is enly till ihe present season that
they have thought cf coming to this place.
We ere assured, however, by all those
who have encemade the experiment of
. coming to Brownvills for their supplies,
that henceforth they will make this their
point cf trade. They find a far easier
country to travel over in coming here than
can be found to any ether point on the
Missouri. The settlers on the Blue in
the neighborhood cf Beatrice and Austin,
-who have been accustomed, heretofore,
to trade at Nebraska City, have express-
ed this opinion, and acted upon it. With
. in the past four weeks they have bought
goods and supplies in this place, to the
amount cf nearly two thousand dollars;
'mostly at the house cf Messrs. Crane &
Hill. This fact is sufficient to show where
" tho trade of those places will naturally
tend. But still, if the people of Brown-
ville are desirous of securing it, they
roust not expect to have their desires grat
' i5ed without seme activity and effort on
. In the first place let it be known that
.our merchants have as good a supply cf
goods as can be found in the Territory,
and that they are selling, and can afford
' tq sell goods here cheaper than they can
at any other point. Next, we should
make cn effort to open and keep in good
repair a public read from this point to
the Blue. An apology for a roadhas been
laid out between here and Austin in Clay
county ; tut it has never teen put into
good repair. It would cost but little to
make .a good traveling road from here to
cd, and a little labor in fixing the cross
ings cf the smaller streams is about all
that is necessary. A road from this
point directly west would pass through
St. George, St. Frederick, and Tecum
seh ; crossing the Yankey Creek some
where in the neigh"borhood ef Lafiin's
thence over a direct ami level route to
Beatrice; crcsiir.g be ir creek About three
. miles this side cf thru place. This route
.ence opened, ati extended about twenty
miles beycr.d the Eh:e, to where it would
intersect the old Military road from
Leavenworth to Fort Kearney, would
draw all the travel from the plains to
this place- . Because people in
from there wul be anxious to reach the
Missouri rirer by the nearest and casi
est route, and they v:dl find that they wil
thorten their journey some fifty ct one
hundred miles by crossing the Blue a
Beatrice, instead cf following the wind
ings cf the eld Leavenworth road" by
The Blue at Beatrice has a rock hot
t'.rn and low banks, and is easily forded.
Th enterprising citizens cf Beatrice
have organized a Bridge and Ferry com
par.y, an J taring obtained a charter from
Legiilatutft, intend to bridge the
IT.ue s seen as practicable. From

tiers cn the Blue have already opened a I
route from Beatrice to several trading
points cn the Leavenworth and Ft. Kear-
neyroad, and will find a ready market
for tneir produce at the different stations
cn thai read.
Messrs. Roper &
Weston cf Beat
contracts for the
rice have made large
sale of corn at these stations, and are
buying up their supplies in the vicinity cf of
Bcatrice and. Austin, at fifty cents, cash
per bushel. The proceeds of this trade
wul douciless find its way to the mer- L.
chants cf Erownville. V :

almost entirely overlooked. Heretofore
has been claimed that there were but
two paacticabie routes, trom places south
cf the Platte, to these Plains; one by the
wav of Marvsville and the Leaverworth
and Kearney road, and the other by the
head waters of the Nemahas across Salt
Creek, and along the South Fork of the
Platte. The route from this place to Be
atrice will be found considerably nearer
and less difficult than either of theoth-
ers. Y'e therefore urge upon our cm
