The "Sliver Heels"
This splendid steamer arrived ot our
Lcveo last Saturday, loaded with pasncn
guts and freight for this place, and Conn
cil Rlufls and Omaha. Tho passengers for
Omaha landed hero and traveled by car
fiage to their town, and thus saved about
ivventv hours timo. as tho boat did not
reach their landing tilt about one o'clock
on Sunday. Tho passengers and freight
for Council Bluffs were landed at the low
er Council Bluffs warehouse, about threo
miles above our town. We wero informed
by the Officers of the Steamer, that there
were about four hundred passengers
aboard, many of whom stopped at Belle
vue. Tho Silver Heels is a large first
class bout, and her captain, (formerly the
indian agent at this pluce, Maj. Barrows)
i every inch a gentleman, lfe reports
tho Bellevue landing as the lost ho had

been impaired, ond some even submer-

which aro quite promising. The town of
Fond de Roche, on tho Piano liver,
ubout tlx miles west of tlu Klkhom river
and west of Bellevue. is destined to be
one of tho largest tow ns on the Tlatte
river. It is immediately on inc raiiru.iu
route to tho Pacific, and is within a short
distance of the Saline Sprigs of Ntl ras-
ka, which are far superior to tho Fall
Springs of Onondaga, New Yolk.

teen t.iiles from Decatur, in a tnuth wes

of Winona, situated at tho mouth of Lo

Ve copy tho following correspondence
from tho "Beacon" published at Aurora,
Mb. Editor: As many of our citizens
are contemplating removing to the Terri
tories of Kansas and Nebraska this spring,
and all ore anxiou for correct informa
tion in relation thereto, I huvc thought it
would be well to give such information as
1 have gleaned during my sojourn there
The climate of Nebraska is rather mil
der than northern Illinois. The prairie
is rolling, and tSe soil equal to any I have
been. It is well watered, but timber rath
er scarce, though generally better than
Iowa. The land oflieo for pre-emption
opened on the first of February, inst. A
public sale of lands is expected in June
Already some very thriving towns have
sprung up, like magic, along the Missouri
river. Brownsville and Nebraska City,
south of iht Platte river, are very desira
able locations. North of iho Tlatte is Bel
levue, tho county seat of Sarpy county ;
it is beautifully located, and is the gate
way of the Pacific Railroad. It has ad
vantages which no other town jtossesses
orth of the Plutte river.
Twelve miles above Bellevue is Oma
ha, the capitol of the Territory, which is
beautifully situuted on the Bluffs, and is la us.
;-. It Comm.
Wo copy below from tho Richmond
Enquirer" a Card addressed by this gen
tleman to the people of Virginia. It will
be seen that he fccattcrs to tho winds,
tho cowardly and unmanly s'ander,
which wilh others of a kindred character,
found its way into this Territory ; and was
freely used to injure that gentleman, tsiin-
ply because ho thought that "Omaha'
was not tho best place in the Territory
for the seat of government.
The gentlemanly and dignified deport
ment of Gov. McCoinas during his short
stay in the Territory, secured to him many
warm friends; but like all other meir of
mark, he had to encoun'er the abuse of
the wicked ; We wish him a safe and
speedy return to the Territory.
to the rror-LE or vikcima.
This is my first crd to the public.
Heretofore 1 have been contented to kt
time correct the slanders of the base; and
even now 1 should do so, were it not ilmt
I would do injustice to those who have
honored me with the position I hold. For
years it has been my desire to remove
from Virginia, believing that such a course
would better the condition of my family.
Circumstances however, fchieflv niv pov
erty) have heretofore delayed me in tho
con ummation of my desire. Recently I
had some small addition to my est ite,
wlvch made my way more clear. I de
termined, accordingly, to shape my at
fairs with a view to removal. Last sum
mer, in company with my friend, Mr.
Wilson, of Clarksburg, 1 visited Chicago,
with a view to a removal to that place
was tati fied made my arrangements to
sjNMid the winter there, without, however,
making a permanent removal unti
should test the climate, Sic, by experi
ence, but at all events to make some in
vestments in that fast growing country. I
returned home openly avowed my pur
poseand for three months was enge.geJ
in making my arrangements. At this
time an aunt of my wife thj one in fact
by whom she had leen raised who ha;
two grown sous in business, and ii tip
wards of fifty years of age, was on a wit

to go up the Platte river, on the north
side, and select a bite for the Capitol of
the Territory, as a large majority of the
people desired its removal. I declined
the proposition ; but I ultimately consent
ed to remain a few weeks longer, tin y
agreeing that the effort should be made in
favor of the town of Douglas, on the south
hiile. if which I was a part owner. This
movement was and is popular in nil parts
of the Territory, except the present Cap- j
itol. It was foiiml from llio very t.egin
ning, that the Speakers of both houses,
and more than two thirds of bo h houses
of the Legislature, wero in favor of the
removal. The bill was passed by '.ho
Legislature, but was vetoed by the Gov
ernor. Two of the friends of the remo
val were notoriously bribed ond our two
thirds vote thereby destroyed in one of the
houses, and thus the bill was lost. Dur
ing the passage of tho bill, the excitement
was intense, the Omaha mob over-awing
the Legislature to an extent thai compell
ed them to call on the Governor for threo
hiindron armed men to protect them. The
more prominent and determined members
and mys 'lf were threatened with the mob,
with assassination, &c, and called n'l
sorts of uiHy names. During nil this time
I remained quietly in my room, not visit
ing the legislative halls. Bvi't in my room
I nave to the friends of the bill the bene
fit of whatever Legislative experi'-nce I
possessed. This is the sum of my offen
ding tin whole of it. Who is there, that
would not have aided to place th capitol
of the territory on his property? It was
insinuated broadly, (for no acli were ever
charged only words of vulgar abuse)
that I had bribed the Legislature. To
bribe an official under the present regime
is regarded merely in the light of a com
mon and rather clever pecadillo, ond
nrarcely vwre to be bribed. But I declare,
that the inliimition in my case is utterly
fal ;e. I never gave or sold one lot, or
gave one cent in any form to ony mem
ber of the Legislature for Unit or any pur
pose. But, on the contrary, 1 hold now
ev ery lot I ever owned i:i Dougl.ts City,
or can show to whom I sold them, ontside
the Legislature, for fair prices and this
can nil Le proven, were it necessary.
It has also len said, that having tried
to wrong Omaha, 1 was about tc turn on
my friends, B.nven and Strickland, and
swindle them. Mstrs. Bowen and Strick
land, in the next issue of their paper, set
this foolish slander right, by declaring
truly, tlmt I had never had any dealings
with them to tli" amount of one cent. The
fact is, that, while 1 have been charged
with Abandoning my family, I have been
most laboriously ond successfully strugg
ling for their wellfare, by means to which
none can object.
As to nry course in Nebraska, I can re
fer to Col. Parker (of Virginia,) and Col.
Gillmore of th Land Ollice, Chief Jus
tice Fonruson, Peter A. Sarpy, the great
Indian trader, nnd Mr. Allan, head of
the Bellevue Mission. All of them men
of the most unimpeachable honor nad in
tegrity m the Territory, and who are not
only acquainted with t.iy whole course
while there, but with iny motives and ob
jects. I refer, indeed, to every man ii
the Territory, who will speak from his
own knowledge and is not n li .r.
Ilav ng said this much, I leave the base
slanderers, who started these rumors, to
enjoy whatever of fiendish gratification it
may giro them. I will only a Id in con
clusion, that having found in that great,
crand country Nebraska a land that of
fers mo much greater inducements, than
where I now reside, I &hall resign tho
position I hold, and remove to Nebraska,
uninfluenced to this co irse by anything
but a determination to better the condi
tion of irysetf and family.
Very truly, &c,
