This spicy sheet makes its appearance
on our table regularly. Its able Editor,
L. II. Lathbop, Esq., understands the
wants of the Territory nt large, anil
Florence in particular, well, and handles
the Omaha subject with gloves otT. We
say suc-cass attend him.
IST" We nre informed by A. II. Gra
lcr, Esq., Agent ol the Western Stage
Company, that hereafter they will run a
tri-weekly mail between this city and
Omaha, independent of the Fontenelle
mail, if it fails to make its proper time.
This is right, the continually growing
population of Bellevuc demands it, and we
are well satisfied that the Company will
not loose anything by the arrangement.
JSS We would call the attention of our
readers to the prospectus of ' The Daily
Globe,' published in Washington, I). C,
and advise all who wish to keep themselves
posted in Congressional news to subscribe
at once for that paper, as it is the official
paper of Congress, and iui news can there

, The Town of Excelsior.
This place has been recently laid out
on the west side of the Platte river, and
is about twenty-five miles from here. It
has a commanding and beautiful situation
on the Platte, in the great bend, and from
its location must become a place of con
siderable trade. The country is settling
up rapidly, and Excelsior will be the
county seat. The proprietors design
making extensive improvements in the
spring. Thfcre is an abundance of tim
ber, and a saw mill will be erected. It
is due west from Omaha, and a ferry at
this place will enable settlers to reach
our city nnd the Missouri river by a much
shorter route than at present. It has our
Defending the ftouih.
. The New Orleans Bulletin, suggests
the following method of defending tho
South. " The best way of defending the
Tights of the bouta, that paper says, Ms to
tnake a vigorous and extended assault up
on the old fields and dilapidated fences.
The enemy is sure to enter at every gap,
and to lie concealed in every brier patch
and acre of weeds he may discover. To
route him, horse, foot and dragoons, it is
necessary to set the plow and the spade
going, aud then to overwhelm him with
mountains of manure! Nothing like ma
nure for the righs of the South, and the
expulsion of its enemies. They can't
stand it at all. The ' Virginia and Ken
tucky Resolutions are nothing in compari
son with it. They may bo attacked iu
front and rear, nnd terribly shattered ; but
muck from the swamps and deep plowing
with a plenty of it, will prove invulnerable.
Cotton bales are but gossamer in potency,
placed beside heaps of muck.'
An Albany journal speaks of a machine
the invention of Messrs. C. V. N. Smith,
and James M. Clemens, of Virginia,
which embraces a locomotive, capablo of
taking a train of cars loaded with material
which, as it proceeds, arranges the sur
face of the roadway perfectly, and lays
the ties at proper intervals. The iron and
chains are then put upon the cross-ties by
the machine, all of which is effected, and
the road completed, at the rato of about
ten feet a minute. The entire length of
the machine is uljout sixty-two feet, and
will arrange any guage of road, or any
length of railroad iron. Six thousand feet
of railroad per day can be made, Five
men, eaya the report, will do as much in
a day, with this machine, as a hundred
will do without it.
