upon our sister "city Florence, mid also riatte

were Informed by a worthy clllxen that, there
wan actually a rock bottom at Florence; and
that It was In every othor reaped all that lt
friende claimed fur it. Being a stranger In
tlila Territory, and not hnvinfr had the oppor
tunity to jud)(e fur ouraolf, we hive relied up
on what we have read, and what other parties
have (old us, and" we would do violence to our
own feeling, aa well as Injustice to a highly
flourishing alsler ally, If we would neglect to
correct any error or misrepresentation into
which we may hare Inadvertently fallen.
For the past week we have taken aome In

Bellevue hai the moat beautiful plateau, and
the best in every respect for a large city thst
exlsta In the Territory. One thing, we think,
can be predicted with certainty the Railroad
will either crosa at Florence or at Bellevue,
for it Is impracticable, If not Impossible, for
even a aleam ferryboat to cross the Missouri,
at all seasons of the year, from Bluff City to
Omaha. We, of course, will do all we can to
make ' lVllevue the point of crossing, but In
the un-an time, we do not wish to quarrel about
it with a sister city. It would ba hotter, a
great deal, to unite and endeavor to prevent
the Railroad from running against a sand-sax I
The August Election.
Tt will be perceived that we have thla week
placed at the head of our columns, the name
of our old friend and fellow-cltlen, Gen.
Lf.avitt L. BowtH, ns a candidate for th
office of Delegate to Congress, We Intended
to have remained outside of the field a few
weeks longer, but at the urgent request of sev
eral Influential gentlemen in different pnrta of
the Territory, as well as the almost unanimous
wish of the citizens of Sarpy county, we have
yielded to their Importunities at once, and will
keep bis name nailed to the mast-head a a
candidate, to the end of the fight, and will not
withdraw It to f.tvor any candidate or clique.
Gen. Bowtif la an actual resident of the
Territory, and one of ita earliest settler, He
erven' as a mernbe r In the House of Represen
tative, two years ago, and by hi indefatiga
ble Industry, done much in forming and enact
in; wholesome law for the government of thla
Infant Territory. Subsequently, he was elect
d a member of the Council, and was by that
"body chosen Us presiding officer the highest
elective office In the Territory. For the
ability with which he discharged the duties of
the office, the unanimous approval of that
body and the public Is sufficient evidence, lie
has ever been true to his constituents, through
'evil and good report" and being personally
acquainted throughout the Territory, havtn
been connected with the same from ita organ
ization to the present time, he knows, and can
appreciate the wants of the actual settlers.
His lull it nee as Delegate will not be exerted
to confer favors upon r-AtTtcvua locations,
to the detriment and disadvantage of others,
hut will ms his utmost abili'y for the good of
all, Mid Uie general prosperity of the Terri
tory. Again, Bellevue, being the oldest point of
settlement in the Territory, Ins claims to the
candidate for Delegate, and should Gen. Bow
er be successful, the compliment will be ap
preciated by the citizen of Sarpy countv. In
conclusion, we would again nay, that it is by
th advice and request of the leading men
throughout the Territory that we have hoisted
th name of Gen. Bowew, and it is with con
fidence that we leave bis claims to the office to
be settled by th voter of the Territory and
will be contented with their decision.
Xebratka Wasou Road.
Vheo In O.naha a few days ago, we had tne
pleasure of an introduction to Ceo. L. Sites,
Esq., of Indiana, who has been appointed to
uperlnteud the construction ot the above road.
Mr. Sites has the appearance of a gentleman
of energy and ability a frank, opea counten
ance, and a strong frame of body, indicating
that he Is just the man to endure the hardships
nd surtnonnt the difficulty which is incident
to such an undertaking. He is now in this city,
nnd will make it his head-quarters. Success
to his labors.
This road will commence, wt suppose, at
some point near the mouth of the Platte river,
and pass up along the west bank of the Mis
onri river to Dakota City; thence north-weal-rly
to the Rinning Water River length
nearly tw;o hundred and fifty miles. This road,
c6.tttViJ. will beef vast importance
to tho settlement on this idr of the M'ouii j

Gov. Walker in Lawrence.
Tho correspondent of the Missouri
Republican, writing f ro n Kansas, says
that " Hubert J. Walker is acting like an
opiate upon the disturbed political bowels
to use n soiuewhnt unfeminine simile
of Kansas. Its blood crows purer its
great Democratic heart begins to pulsate
strongly. We shall have no more un
healihy secretions of Republican bile
In fact, Kansas has done what yellow
fever patients ever did had the Hack
iwwiii and got over it."
Cov. Walker reached Lawrence on
the afternoon of the 2Gth, from Leaven
worth city, nnd was introduced to the peo
ple at a meeiing held the same night, in
the Unitarian Church. He made but
few remarks, but they cover much ground,
for he most emphatically declared that he

the troubled waters, aud bring peace, by

He observed that he would not enter at

The settlers themselves had admitted that
it was their stnrvu.g condition that drove
them to it, and ruihr than retaliate, they
liml submitted with the hope that govern-
ment would see the necessity of placing
them on a reserve. :
Thc fact of the man Davis shooting the
Indian, rnused .the settlers on Salt Creek,
in nnd about Chester, to run in from their
settlements, and to spread consternation
wherever they stopped. On the other

The statement of settlers that had been

The Washington Correspondent of the
N. V. IlerM, holds the following langu.
age in regard Gov Walker's orders:
" Whatever modifications Mr. Walker
niav moke in his orders on Ins way to
Konsa-, or afti r his arrival there, he will
ino.-t probnbly adhere to the 'following
points, to wit : That the IochI legislative
laws must be sustained ; that the stand-
ulo.if policy of the Free-Mate party from
the June election w ill avail them nothing;
that the act of th majority of those who
d vote will be binding upon those who
do not vote j that the next tep after the
adoption of n hiato ( onstitutmn, by the
Convention thus elected, should be t all
hazards the uhmission of such Constitu-
tiou to ihe vote of iho people for their
raiiiicaiion ; and that the Convention have
the undoubud right, if they shall so think
(it, to leave uirouch'd the question of
Slavery in their State Constitution, and
entirely subject to the future action of the
Legislature of the Slate.
We nre also inclined to think that Mr.
Walker will adhere to these original land-
murks of his Kansas programme : and
according to our latest information from
the Territory, there will be no e vil war
from the promulgation of these views,
and no burning nor murdering will be re-
iiuired to enforce them. The squashing
