pleased to learn that a company Is now being
formed for the purpose rf building a large
commercial brick block (to cost 10,000), on
the bluir near the Urnling, with store rooms in
(he fust story, and a hotel above. In addition
to this, Mr. W. II. Cook haa purchased the
Sarpy reserve, and Intends to refit the "Sarpy
House," and make out of It a first-class hotel,
an accommodation much needed at the l.md
lnp. Several store-room buildings will also
bo put tu lmmeJiately near Uie landing. Two
large brick yards are in successful operation,
and r.u n have contracted to make two mil
lions of brick this season. Arrangements
have also been completed to have at this point
large quantities of pine lumber by the middle i
of June. Quite a large number of brick build
ings are contracted for, and the incipient
ateps taken for their construction.
We learn from Gen. L. I Bowrx, who has
returned from the East, and is one of the rom
jnissioners to locate the county seat, that the
county buildings axe to be built without taxa

We learn lira following particulars of the
sinking of the a! earner A. C GoiMin, from a
passenger who was on board at the time of
the disaster ;
The steamer A. C, Ooddin left RU Louis on
the 8Mb, of April, with every prospect of
mnklng a safe and speedy trip to Sioux city
and the intermedial! points on the Missouri
river. The passengers, most of whom were
bound for Nebraska ami upper Iowa, con
gratulated themselves upon their fortunate
choice of a boat, as nothing was lacking to
render them comfortable. All the arrange
ments of the boat were snug and neat nothing
pretentious, but. everything in order. The of
ficers polite, the waiters attentive, the fare
excellent and well prepared, and what ran be
ssid of few boats on the turbid waters of this
river, no more passengers than could be ac
commodated. She was lightly ladened, only
drawing three feet water, her cargo consist
ing in part of goods belonging to passengers,
who were transporting (hem (o their several
On Sumlay afternoon and nljjht she made
good time, not meeting any obstructions until
half-past three o'clock on Monday morning,
April 27lh, when a slight shock nniiouiiced
something wrong. The boat struggled a few
minutes endeavoring to recover herself, but
vainly. She had struck the fatal snag, and
in a short time the passengers were aroused
and Informed that the boat was sinking, tho'
assured at the same time that there was no
personal danger. The usual scene of confu
sion ensued, ladies screaming and children
crying, everybody rushing to the hurrir.me
leek for ssfety. The Iriuli deck passengers
had the worst of it, for the boat went dow n so
rapidly that it immersed the lower deck in a
very short time. Irish praying, Irish swear
ing, Irish scolding, and most of all, Irish cry
ing, were an amusing part of the scene.
The boat soon settled, with about two feet
of water above the lower deck. The provi
sions were, of course, saturated and unfit to
eat, so the bill of fare for that day was crack
ers and coffee.
Hie boat was about sixty miles from St.
Louis, consequently there was no port near to
which her passengers could be taken. They
therefore remained on board until four o'clock
in the afternoon, when they were landed on
nn island close by, where everything was done
for their comfort possible under the circum
stances. The captain and clerk done oil in
their power to preserve what goods were on
the lower deck. They were partial owners,
as well as the pilot, and although their own
loss was heavy, their first care was for the
The steamer J. II. Oglesby camo along
about midnight and took tip the passengers
who wished to go on to St. Joseph. Many of
them had lost their all except personal bag
gage, and were depressed and dispirited In
consequence, whilst others had been prndent
enough to insure.
We regret to learn that Dr. Lonosdorf,
a young physician who was removing to this
city, lost his goods which lie had the misfor
tune not to Insure. We are not Informed who
are tha owners of the boat, or what amount
of damage is sustained by this accident.

We know not whether Mr. Cbat was an ap
plicant or not, but this we do know, the pre

peinocvary of the North-West, and we can
truthfully add, the whole Union, as far as
democracy is concerned, are under positive
and lasting obligations to Mr. Gsat for the
untiring zeal, Die loyal, patriotic and telling
ervicea he has, through the columns of the

cratic party. His paper has a very wide cir
culation in the norih-wrst, and is eagerly
ought after, we are pleased to say, by many
who formrrly took the N. Y. Tribune. The
reason of this Is, that its columns are always
full of early and reliable news, making it de
sirable for the business community, and re

matter which has rendered it so welcome as a
family paper. And as to ia political influ

toots reverberating from north to south, from

created for it a justly deserved national pop
ularity, of which we, as humble American
journalists, may well be proud.
Mr. Gray, through the columns of the

remark, that no journal in the F.ast, we care

With all tho changeable phases of co'd
and storm we have experienced this spring,
we have not suffered half nj much as our
Eastern friends. The following which
we cut from the Miners' Journal, of April
the 2oth., published at Pottsvillo Ta., will
give our friends in this Territory, some
idea what tho weather has been, and what
our friends in the old settlements at the
East have suffered :
The snow storm which set in on Sun
day evening last, ftnd continued until Tues
day, is unprecedented in this Region,
even w ithin tho recollection of that cele
brated individual, the oldest inhabitant.
The only storm that wo recollect approach
ing it i i severity, and it was somewhat
earlier in the month, was in 122. So
fur u.c visitation of the Oih int., may
be called the April snow eloriu of the
century. The ground being wet was not
in good condition to receive the lare llukes
as they fell, and many melted before they
finally ouained the mastery, and com
menced piling up.' At 11 o'clock on
Sunday night, the snow was four inches
in depth, and on Monday morning had
increased to eighteen inches on a level.
The snow which fell was exceedingly wet
and heavy. As an instance of it, we will
state that the snow which fell on the scales
act as njnts. and as an inducement offer
ed them a lot for every ten they s ld.
We nre informed that in some localities,
thore were as high as eighty lots s Id by
one Postmaster. Some of tho victims
are now in this city, who was partly in

purpose of l.oking up and improving their
We learn from Mr. Joii.t Rickley,
direct from Columbus, that no such per
son as Gilbert lives there, but that he
had been in that city, and succeeded in
di.-posmg of a number of his lots, stating
that he resided at Cedarville, Green coun
Now, for tho information of all con
cerned, we inform them, that no such city
as Merrimac exists, except in the prolific
