Timk-r, such as ouk, black whIjhH, red cedar juid COtlon wood, with Various other kiiids, aljounds in far greater plenty than in any other part of the Territory at present open to settle ment; arid several beds cf limestone, of superior quality, are already opened and worked. Coal, too, has been discovered, and the! 9 can be iio doubt of its existence in irreat abundance on' the north side of the .Platte." . The inviting character of the region sjwlatn s tmdy covered t wivh an enterprising and prosperous population, and all the way from IJelle vue to the Klkhorn, the hand of industry 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. 'On the north and astt bank; cf -ihe PapilHon, about a mile and-a-half from its Mouth, cojomences-.a plateau uno qiuiutMr ihbi'auty, ami "ex tending easlJny 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. rncitlc IliilJro !.

Tlfcprocession was over two hours in passing a j;iven point, and represented nearly every mechani cal trade and manufacture. Among the special attractions was a new and beaitfi ful locomotive and tender, named Benja min Franklin, mounted on trucks and drawn by eighteen horses; a sugar- grinding mill, for Cuba, drawn by twelve horses ; the House and Morse telegraph instruments; the electric fire alarm; Franklin's old printing press, on which was being struck off and scattered to the crowd a fac simile of his newspaper. dated 1723; x immense structures on wheels reprCseuting school rooms filled with scholar at the desks ; and a vast number of other novel and interesting features made up one of tho grandest dis plays ever witnessed. - The Masonic fra ternity, the Firemen, and Mechanics' Charitable Association, and numerous other charitable Societies of Boston, and Mechanic and other Societies from the adjoining cities and towns, were out in full force." Also, the Franklin Medal Scholars, children of the Public Schools, 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. Mr. Bladgent.iddresse by Mayor Rice, Masonic ceremonies of inauguration, &c.

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 1 1 ' 1 nm .' : V... OOCtru. lllt'rB is limu uuuui uui luai nearly all the crew were saved. AU the baggage of the . passengers was lost. There is a rumor that the boat was set on fire, and that soon after the fire was discovered, a keg of powder ex ploded, blowing the flames in every di- 1 remon. The latest accounts state the number of the lost at sixty-six. - Terrible Itailroad Accident.
