"Jim crack corn, I don't care,
For ma.sa's gone away.
Yes, readers, the editor is on a leave of
absence, in Ohio, for bis family, during
which lime, the deril will be sponsor for
anything that may appear in the columns

Kclioiods Notice. Rev. Mr. Ham
ilton of the Presbyterian Church, will
preach in the School House next Sunday
morning at 10 1-2 o'clock. In the eve
ning, at early candle light, C. C. Goss will
lecture upon Prtaching, at the same place.
Bellevue. Never in the history of
Bellevue, all things considered, have the
prospects been so bright as they now ap
pear. The sound of the manson's trowel;
the click of the carpenter's hammer and
saw are heard in every direction. Build
ings, that but two weeks ago were but so
many stone foundations, are now large two
The active stirring din of building,
gives our place an appearance that enli
vens every branch of industry. Notwith
standing the vast amounts of money, U. S.
Coin has been taken out of our county by
Uncle Sam, for his land. Still they build,
improve, prosper, and go ahead. Our
dock is lined with goods for our enterpri
sing merchants. Our lumber dealers are
in receipt daily of large amounts of pine
lumber from St. Louis. Our steam mills
are doing a driving business in the home
manufacture of Cottonwood, Oak and black
Walnut lumber while L. Belden, with
his numerous kilns of brick, has put on an
additional force to supply the wants of
builders. Tou can hardly cross the streets
without being run against by one of La
rue's teams, hauling stone for foundations
It is cheering to see these certain signs
of prosperity for our place. It warms
and gladdens our hearts when we think,
with these signs, we can safely say, that
the hard times east, which have blighted
so many enterprises there, will not reach
the west, even with its smoke.
Rive JNew. The river is getting
low, and last, week was unusually dull,
there having been but few arrivals.
The Watossa arrived from St. Joseph
on the 21st.
The Dan Converse went down the
same day. She has been running be
tween Council Bluffs, Omaha, and Sioux
City, for some weeks. Her place is now
taken by the newferry boat, Omaha City
The Emigrant touched at our levee
on the 22d, discharging passengers and
The Cabrieb arrived .on the 23d, and
discharged a large quantity of freight
This is her first trip to the upper Missou
ri. She was formerly a Saturday packet
between Su Louis and Boonville. We
noticed on board, a goodly number of la
dies and "Young Americans," a refresh
ing sight, no doubt, to our bachelor friends,
The Silver Heels arrived on the
25th, having made the trip from St. Louis
in foe days and six hours losing twelve
hours by fog, made 38 way landings, and
discharged 200 tuns of freight. This,
we believe, is the quickest trip that has
been made this season, from Su Louis.
lhe bilver Heels nas not appeared in
our waters since the last of June, having
been laid up for repairs. She is now in
fine trim for the fall trade.
Her obliging officers have our thanks
for St. Louis papers of the 20th.
The Col. Grossman, also, arrived and
passed up on the 25ih.
The Omaha arrived at our levee, on
the 26th, bound for Fort Randall.
Tare Notice. That gentleman who
accidentally took a ceatain portable or
folding Umbrella from the Fontenelle
Bank, a short time since, when it didn't
rain, would do the owner a great favor by
returning it. As Dow, Jr. says, "eyes
are looking and tongues will soon call
names," unless returned. ' Thus saith
Ebsata. An error occurred in the
notice of the Fontenelle Bank building,
in our last issue. Its dimension should
have been 22 by 42 feet, instead of 22
by 24 feet
Melons. We are now luxuriating on
mammoth melons, and we will wager a
" bung-Iowa" that our friends in the states,
can't produce belter ones. At any rate,
their lusciousness is not excelled by those
we use to eat at " general training," way
down near sun line.
New Arrival. The Circus and the
Colportuer reached Nebraska tome time
since; and last week we were visited by
the "organ-grinder," large as life
imnua the monkey. Surely, " westward
the star of empire takes its way."
We are now having cool and pleasant

Rev. Mr. Hamilton, on Wednesday next,
Sept. 3, at 2 o'clock, P. M. As the elec

their regular meetings. What say you,

We learn that the school kept by Mrs.

condition. We hope parents will avail
themselves of the opportunity of sending
their children to one so well qualified and

We would call the attention of those in
want of a first rate article of brick, to the
advertisement of Lemuel Belden, in
Mr. B. has a large quantity of brick
on hand and is now making 7000 a day,
at his Yard, which he will sell to those in
want. He is also contracting to put them
in the wall, in a superior manner, at short
police. Give him a call, he has got the
tools to do it with.
Coal. We learn that the coal-mine,
leased by Geo. 1 Jennings & Co., gives
evidence already of an abundance of that
very comforting commodity. The import
ance of such a coal-bed to the growth and
prosperity of the city cannot be two high

The Widow or Henry Cla v. A cor
respondent of the St. Louis Republican,
who was present at the laying of the cor
ner stone of the Clay Monument at Lex
ington, on the 4th of July, thus refers in
his letter to that Journal, to the venerable
widow of the great Kentucky statesman:
Before leaving Ashland, 1 passed over
to the residence of Mr. John Clay, to pay
my respects to the widow of Henry Clay.
At the hour of the visit she was out ta
king an evening ride. I met her, howev
er, amid the scenery endeared to her by
a thousand associations on a beautiful
drive through the shades of the woodland
pastures of Ashland.
Mrs. Clay is seventy-six years of age.
Until within a year she has been in hearty
good health, tier feebleness is now, how
ever, growing manifest, and the time is
not remote when, in the tomb to be erect
ed to her husband, and by his side, she
too will be consigned to her final earthly
repose. May her closing days be tran
quil, hopeful and happy.
A Lucky Recover. A few days ago,
a merchant of New Orleans, while land
ing from a steamer at the levee, dropped
a valuable watch overboard. He instantly
procured a pig of iron and a line, with a
buoy, and dropped the iron as near as he
could on the spot where the watch bad
disappeared. Early next morning he
went on board the steamer, and taking a
line in his hand, dived down, returning,
so said, to the surface in less than a min
ute with the watch in his hand. The wa
ter was 32 feet deep.
The great trunk sewer in New York
is nearly completed. It is four thousand
feet long, and will drain seven hundred
acres of land. It is nine feet high and
eight and a half wide in the clear, bottom
of solid masonry, sides three feet thick, and
cost one hundred and twentv-nve thousand
dollars It commences in Third Avenue,
at the corner of 56th street, running thence
through 53d street to Second Avenue,
down the latter to 49th street, thence to
East River. The excavation for it varies
from fourteen feet to twenty-eight feet
Mr. Elisha Riggs, of the firm of Cor
coran and Iliggs, of Washington, D. C.
has entered into obligations with the pro
prietors of the city of Superior, at the head
waters of Lake Superior, to erect at that
place, within two years, a hotel costing not
less than 51UU.UUU.

One day when he was even more disposed
for an argument, he asked one of bis suit
why he did not venture to give bis opin

GREATEST DISCOVERY of the present
