fCj Owing to the fact that we are com
pelled to remove our office to another loca
tion, we may not be able to issue a paper
next week. . We will, however, endeavor
to avoid this.
The " editor nouvdkmeni arrive," of the
Bellevue Gazette is under many obliga
tions to the erudite brother, Claiborrb,
of the Glen wood Times, for the courtesy
with which he has treated our " inexperi
enco which" we "invariably indicate,'
and hope he will spare us further mortifi
r l i
He however, lies under a mistake
when h charges us with writing the b-
. . T1. , . .. ,
noxious article on I lattsmotith, and if he
xaniines our issue of the 11th inst., he
will find all the retraction which any gen-
tloman would require of nnather, without
any prompting irom mr. laiuorne.
We are pleased to see that some of the
ladies of Bellevue are inclined to aid their
own paper, by contributing to its columns.
We are proud to sny that we hove in our
midst here in the Far West, on the con
fines of civilization, talent of no com
.mon order, in the possession of our fair
ladies. Our columns are open for the
effusions of your pens.
Who wants to Drink 1
-Mr. J. T. Allan, of the Bellevue
House, has in successful operation a first
rate Soda Fount. All ye who are athirst
-come aud quench it with this sparkling
beverage. No lurking devil lies hidden
in this cup. No deadly strychnine or in
siduous poison is infused in its foaming
contents. It causes no widow's tears to
flow, or worse than orphan's cries to as
cend on high for protection. But it cools
the fevered system, tranquilizes the mind,
sweetens the temper and quenches thirst.
New Establishment. Our city
friends are referred to the advertisement
of Messrs, GairriTH & Butleriield, in
another column. They have engaged in
a business which was much needed in this
place. Omaha can boast no longer of
supplying Bellevue with meat. Should
they become scarce of good fresh beef
In that city, they can comedown to Belle
vue and be supplied. .
We call the attention of our citi
zens, to the card of Doctor II. W.
LowcsDour, in another column. Mr.
Longsdorf is a young man who stands
liigh in his profession in the East, and
has left a lucrative practice to make a
home among us in the Far West. On
his way to this place, the Steamer struck
snag, sunk, and he lost nearly all his
goods; but this misfortune did not dis
hearten him, he replaced them by repur
chase, and is now among us. We are
natisfied in regard to his skill as a Phy-, receiving notice of the passage of this

T MRS. J. E. NYE.
With what varied emotions of pleasure,
beauty and sublimity, have I wandered amid
the deep, romantic dells and towering hills of
New York, and surveyed the stern grandeur
and wild magnificence of her mountain land
but after nearly three weeks of weary jour
neying, not less joyous was my admiration
and true pleasure, when, from the deck of our
strainer, I caught the first view of my future
home the green hills of Bellevue.
The plateau arose before us like a bright
vision of beauty and serene loveliness, crown
ed with the glory of Us summer verdure, aud
bathed In the radiance of that evening's sun
light, and as I wandered amid its scattered
buildings and tiny cottages, though there came
bark to my heart pleasant memories of the
loved friends I had left, and the one dear home
nestled down among the green hills of Unadi lla,
there was a richness, a dignity, and a luxuri
ant vegetation In the beautiful country spread
out before me, which I rejoiced to recognise in
the home of my adoption.
How different had been my Impresion of a
home in the far west Nebraska. The dinky
forms of the Indians, with their arrows and
tomahawks, aeem to have passed away for
ver, and we look in vain for their swift canoes
on the muddy waters of the Missouri. But
cultivated lands and broad prairies are spread
out Invitingly to reward the hand of labor;
and hundreds of young men intelligent, hardy
and enterprising are leaving their pleasant
eastern homes, bearing yet fresh upon their
hearts the dew of a father's blessing and a
mother's prayer, and their bosoms swelling
high in the full tide of youthful aspirations
and energy. There are faces, too, I see, whose
hearts are linked together by the first bright
band of love, the first flowery dream of ro
mance, weaving happy visions for the future
In small, incommodious homes, irrsdiated but
by the sunlight of their own beautiful enthusi
asm, and decorated only by the flowers of
their own exuberant fancy; and men older and
richer in the world's lore, but whose path lias
been daikened by misfortune and sorrow, come
here folding to their heart all the beauty and
joys of the present, resolutely turning from
the sorrows of the past, and with a firm, un
faltering step, press forward, cheerfully antic
ipating that success that they feel must crown
tac truly persevering.
And thus we have all come, each with our
1 wv ii nwm uuwrn ui tin Miriness muu useiuiness
; our own bht dreams of r-rosnoritv and
I . V. - : i t
j enjoyment and though we may realize much,
I life can bring to none of us a golden heritage
i 0f unalloyed beauty and pleasure. But let us
' Mrh wi,h a cheerful heart, struggle bravely
a against its many discouragements, mutually
j aiding each other in hours of wea kness and
' despondency, and we may yet see in Bellevue
j the vine-embowered cottages, the commodious
and tasteful mansions, the gleaming church
spires, cultivated gardens and shaded walk,
so attractive in our eastern villages. And in
' ttie acer hurry and restlessness of a life in

have gone forth' from the wise restraints of
nappy domestic firesides and a promise of
early loveliness, and future usefulness been
darkened forever by unhallowed associations
ami evil innnences; nor rorget that we bear
within our hearts a breath of immortality, of
more value than all earth's treasures. Rever
ently, then, let us daily ask Our Father, with
loving care to guard its purity and preserve
unstained its Innocence and truth, and we may
safely trust that " He who heedeth the spar
rows fall, and heareth the ravens cry," shall
bless all ourlabors. . ,

be regarded as "Judges of ths County Court"
As soon ss tbst doubt la removeJ, notiet will
