On Sunday, the 0 h ins', hv A. R. Black
burn, Esq.. 'Mr. JOHN' I). SfOTT. of Omaha
ci'v, to Miss ELIZABETH DAVIS, of La
Platte, in this county.
We regret to announce, that on last
Monday about noon, whilst Mr. Willi am
Wilder, and Mr. Paddock, of Omaha,
were passing through our city, their horse
took fright near Mr. Je.xsings' larjre
building, and started to run at full speed,
throwing Mr. Wilder, out of the buggy
and breaking forth bones of his left leg
oelow the knee. So bad was the fracture,
that the bone protruded through the skin.
M. Paddock retained his seat and fortu
nately brought the horse (o a stand.
Mr. Wilder h a young man of ener
gy and perseverance, and we deeply sym
pathize with him in his affliction. He has
been a resident of this Territory a long
time, in fact, one of our earliest pioneers.
3""The following Steamers have
passed up and down the Missouri river,
within the last ten days, all of which
brought large quantities of freight and
passengers to this city.
Those passing up were the Emma,
Asa Wilgus, Emigrant, Min ne-ha-ha,
Washington City, Florence, Admiral, and
Those past-lug down, were the Omaha,
Hanibal, Silver Heels, Emma, Emigrant,
Min-ne-ha-ha, Asa Wilgus and Admiral.
P5" We call the attention of the citi
zens of Bellevue, to the card of Mr. James
J. Weaver, an energetic mechanic who
has come to reside among us. He is an
excellent workman give him a tall.
The N. Y. Evening Post, of May 2d.,
says there are surmises of an armed re
sistance by Mayor Wood to tho new
legislative enactment that refers to our
city. A hundred muskets have been
paced in the station house or the 10th
ward. The democratic members of the
common council will meet in caucus to act
on furtlier resistance.
Immense Telegraphic Enterprise.
We learn from a gen'lenian in the way
of receiving authentic intelligence on the
subject, that a number o' gentlemen cf
this city largely interested in the tele
graph!'.' b iIih's, have a project on fool to
connect New Yoik and San Francisco di
rect by a lino of telegraph.
The plan is not ynt fully matured, but
when perfected, it will embrace a pre
liminary expedition under the auspices
and protecti n of the government party,
which is soon to start on an engineering
tour for the purpose of laying out (under
the recent act of Congress), a Military
Road to the Pacific.
The Telegraphic party, which is to ac
company the Military Expedition, will
probably consist of 6ome forty or fifty per
sons, and wilt bo amply supplied with
jinulea and camels for the purpose of
.crossing the continent with safety and dis
patch. The party wiil start from Omaha
.city, in Nebraska (to be connected by
telejraph with St. Louis), follow the
riaue river to the South Pass, and thence
jdirect across to San Francisco.
This is an immense enterprise, and
pae which requires a large outlay. of la
bor and capital. Shou'd it prove success
f d, and the submarine telegraph be laid
successfully in July, London and San
Frrncisco will be within hailing distance
of each other, and the quotations on
'Change in the Metropolis of Europe will
he bulletined in the Golden city within
au our. N. Y. Mirror, ISih.
The latest wjy to pop tho question is to
ask a fair ladv, if you bhall have the pleas
ur of seeing her to the minister's.
