Claim Association Meeting.
At a meeting of the Bellevue and Platte
Valley Claim Association, it was
Ktso'.vr.n, That the members be requested
to make a plat of their several claims, show
ing as near as possible, their connection with
the Government Surveys, and also the streams
and roads that pass through or bound them,
so that a map may be made for the use of the
Association, and that such plats be handed to
the Secretary as anon as possible.
JOSKPH DYSON, President.
W. H. Cook, Secretary.
Ho! for Glenwood.
The people of Bellevue will be pleased
to learn that our enterprising citizen of
Glenwood, Robert Huffman, has estab
lished a line of stages, which will run
regularly, as will be seen by his adver
tisement, between our city, via. St. Marys
to Glenwood. This line will make regular
connection at Bellevue with the Omaha
city and Nebraska city stage lines ; at St.
Marys, with the Council Bluffs and St.
Joseph stages ; and at Glenwood, with
the Burlington line of stages from the
East. We hail this enterprise as not
among the least for the great benefit it
will confer upon the traveling public in
general, and the facilities it will afford to
citizens of the three places, Bellevue, St.
Marys and Glenwood. We are not say
ing too much, when we remark that the
interest of these three places are identi
cal. St. Marys and Bellevue, lying due
west from Glenwood, it is reasonable to
believe that, inasmuch as our Glenwood
neighbors have much confidence in the
railroad passing through that place to its
terminus on the Missouri, at or near the
mouth of the Platte river, it will neces
sarily reach St. Majy, and finally ap
proach the Missouri river near Bellevue.
Glenwood is the county seat of a well
watered, well-timbered, and rich, fertile
country, it is a business place of no
small importance in the West, and has
some advantages unknown to other cities
not a hundred miles from this place. It
is a good market for produce, and does,
by the enterprise of its merchants, furnish
the surrounding country with a large sup
ply of goods ; and its unsurpassed beauti
ful location for healthy residences, make
it very desirable, and is sought for by
many who seek a home in the West,
while St. Marys, in a line due west on
the Missouri river, is a fast-growing and
flourishing town of no small importance
now, and with a future worthy of its en
terprising, intelligent and fast-going resi
dents. It has a good landing, and does a
large business, and is surrounded by a
county that will make it the center of
much inland business. We say success
to the enterprise and its enterprising pro
jector, and may he reap that rich reward
that his energy deserves.
' On our late visit to St. Marys we
were agreeably surprised, on entering
the Iowa House, to find it in such excel
lent trim the house new furniture new
proprietors new, and in fact everything
and everybody new. Messrs. Rick &
Sperling deserves great credit in estab
lishing their new hotel, and they show
by their acts, that indomitable spirit which
characterizes the good people of that city
and we would advise all our friends Tisit
ing St. Marys, to call at the Iowa House
and see for themselves, as these gentle
men are always ready to minister to the
creature comforts of their visitors in such
a way as to give entire satisfaction. Suc
cess attend you friends Reck & Sperling,
J5 We take pleasure in calling the
attention of our readers to the advertise
ment of our particular friend, Mr. WiL'
mam Allen, in another column, and can
testify to the fact that he kills none but
the best cattle, and that his customers
will find him (though short), quite a la!
business man, and one who supplies food
for the intellect as well as for the inner
man. Success attend friend Billy.
We take pleasure in calling the
attention of our readers to the advertise
ment of Messrs. Kphl ta Kayser, of St.
Marys, and would recommend them on
visiting that place to give them a cll,as they
have a superior slock of goods sell cheap
for cash and are first-rate fellows gen
Just as we were going to press we have
to announce the arrival of the Steamer
Castle Gamcem, which owing to the low
stage of water, proceeds but slowly up the
river to Council Bluffs.
Three men were killed near Sioui
city a few days since, while attempting
the arrest of several deserters from Fort
Pierre. We understand ' that the mur
derers are in the hands of the authorities
at Council Bluffs.
The management of this new and popular
nstitution announce, with pleasure, that ar
rangements for the third year have been com-
leted on the most extensive scale. Works of
American Art, and the encouragement of
American genius, have not been overlooked.
Commissions have been issued to many dis
tinguished American Artists, and a special
agent has visited the great Art Repositories

"From the New York Evening Mirror."
Throughout the country there are thousands
of persons who purchase or subscribe for the
leading magazines, at book stores, all of
whom, by joining this Association, will not
only receive their literature lor tne same
money as before, but will be, in addition
equal and free participants in a rare art-work
distribution, iney aiso receive mat beauti
ful quarterly, the "Art Journal," free.
Such an enterprise cannot fail to command
the approval and patronage of the public. It
has a basis as firm and pure as its objects are
beneficial and noble, mere la no reason why
it should not become national, in its claims
upon the people. Originated and conducted
by intelligent, reliable parties, the new Asso
ciation is entitled to every confidence."
I trust the Association will be eminently
successful. Its very liberal lodgements com
mend it strongly to the patronage of the pub
lic. Bayard Taylor.

The Cosmopolitan Art Association seems
to prove highly successful, as it is beneficial.
The plan on which it is founded is an excel

Let each individual remember three things t
that by his subscription he secures a fund of
pleasant and profitable reading, or a splendid
Engraving, and entitles himself to a fair
chance in the distribution, which disseminates
and encourages good reading and a taste for
the beautiful and elevating. How can $3 be
more profitably expended ?
"From the New York Evening Mirror."
We are not surprised to hear that hundreds
of subscribers are pouring in daily. Our only
surprise is, that the hundreds do not swell to
thousands, aince every subscriber gets tils
money back certain, in the best literature, or
an elegant Engraving, and bis art chances
"From the Louisville Courier."
The Cosmopolitan Art Association have re
eeived and are constantly receiving large num.
bers of subscribers from ell quarter. We do
not wonder "t it. Almost every individual is
struck by the advantages offered by this in
stitution. Each member receives a splendid
Engraving, or becomes a subscriber to some
one of our excellent Magazines, and receives
it regularly for one year, paying no more than
the subscription price. He also receives that
beautiful publication, the 'Art Journal,' free
of charge, and, at the same time, stands a
chance of drawing some one of the numerous
Works of Art to be distributed. Therefore.
It simply amounts to this: if you are taking
soma Magazines, renew your subscriptions
with the Cosmopolitan Art Association, If
you dj not take a Magazine, then send your
name in, by all means, and supply yourself
with reading matter, at the same time helping
to ditsemtna'e art over emr iani.
