The Covernor lock losings r.t ihe oflice
of the I.nilian Ag-eiiry.
After the crganiza'ion of tiie ineeiing
lirheeu effected, A. V,'. JIollistfh, Estp.
oriV.Jevl-j,'f.ppearel in behalf of the
t.&vernor, nnd in a brief on! per'hient
eptch, fjpressej hi deep felt sorrow
tlat; the sf t6 of his hetikh was such as to
xc1ui!e Tam from the ojiporlnnity now
presented, of sj-pearin before the peo
ple of IS'i braska, which it would have
effortlcd him the greatest pleasure to have
done, if Ids health had permitted. Mr. II.
concluded his brief remarks in behalf of
the people, expressive of th-ir sympathy
with the Coventor in the. tinieiiuii wiih
which he had been visi'.ed, and which hud
deprived llicm of an opp jitimhy of hear
ing his voice and of giving him that heariy
welcome which hii presence and speech
would have called f..r:h. Mr. II. con
cluded wi-li a touching expression of hope
that the malady with which he had been
eized, would soon be removed, and that
his customary health would b restor
ed, und that lie would room become
fitted in body and mind (o attend to the
duties of the high station he has been ap
pointed lo fi'.J.
Cou Sha npr., of Iow.1, being called
upon, remarked: "Tint the du.y of mak
it:fr an introductory" speech, havir.; been
ussigned him, he felt somewhat emburras
ed under the unexpected ciicumslances
ii; which he found himself situated."
The Governor not being able to appear
before the people; he Wuiil I briefly jem irk,
that the organization of NcLiaskr , liad
long been rnxious'y sought for, by the
ci'izenj of Western Iowa, and he rejoiced
in the prospeel, that such an oigrtnizaiion
appeared to be near at hand.
Ilev. W'u. Hmiuoi, of the Otoe
lit! 0:n.. ha Mission, hcin clled for, came
ui ward and a brief, but cIo.pient
tpeech, refeirirg the unhappy disappoint
ment wiih which the people had been is

some "inci ien.s of travel' thr.m-lt Illi-j

intcresiing. It is hardly i ccessary for me
lo stale ail the paiticiilars of my jourm y
through Illinois and Iowa: for the cjunlry
has been w ell described ly hundreds of
Irnvi lers, but in ail the iejcnj)lins that
ever have been given, jusiice has not been
done to the p rent lies and heau'y of the

we will at ; o distant day have to knock

reminded of the e-xe lamalion of the tjueen
of Slirbii. when she cume to view the
Temple. She heard of the wis hen of
King Solomon, but, the hulf had no'
been told.1' I Lad also he-ard much of
the Croat We-st, including Nebraska and
Ivans. .s, bul, ' the l.alf Las not been told."
I traveled in company w ith my "be': r
half1 in our own private conveyance
through the centre of Illinois, we siruck
ihe Mississippi nt the Cily of Naiivoo,
where we have a relative living. Wo
spent two days there uik1 visited the cur
iosities of the cily, and were much disap
pointed in the appearance and business of
'he once great Mormon c ily. We expect
ed lo find it a deserted j.ile or ruins, but
inslead of this, we found a very thriving
cily, inhabited by about two thousand in-r-liistriom,
en'erprisiier ei'izeiis, a large
portion f whom bre Germans. There
is blso, a community of French people
there, calling themselves (he Icarians,
they own and occupy the Mormon temple
sipiart ; they have a community cf in'.er-
esls, tnd are said to be very orderly an 1
moral, and live up to the rules of ihe i
commur.i'y; they number thrre or
hundred, rrd Lave a large Academy L"i!l
of ihe mateiiid from the "ruins of the first
Tern pie." They have also a newspaper
printed by and belonging to the kocioty,
and all i's concerns are under the manage
ment of Mr. Cbbet, a very worthy and
intelligent Fjench gen'lcmiiii. Wc were
surprised on eur arrival at Nauvoo, to
lerrn thtt Mrs. Smiih, the wife of the
lulo CWbrtd Joseph Smiih, the Mormon
Prophet, was living in Nauvoo, having
ee-.-ti in a late paper that she had lately
eiird cl Salt Lake. We raid a visit to the
residence of (he lady, whom we found
keeping the si me tave rn whic h was kept
by her former husband Joseph Smith.
We were very p.olilcly received by her
present husband, win is a very worthy
gentleman, j.n I by whom we were very
hospitably en'erlaiiicd; we were thawn
