History or Bellevuk.- Rev. C. C.
Goss is now engaged in preparing a work
upon the history, advantages, and pros
pects of our city, which is to be published
soon. From a personal acquaintance
with Mr. G., we have no hesitation in
saying, it will be a full and reliable rec
ord of transpired events, resperting the
tarly history of Bellevue, extending back
to the year 1804, to the landing of Capts.
Lewis and Clark, and tho subsequent es
tablishment of the Ameican Fur Compa
ny, under the supervision of Francis De
roin, as their agent. As there is much
connected with our city, concerning the
history of the Territory, it will bo a val
uable book to those interested in the
growth and prosperity of Nebraska. We
presume- the work will have a large sale.
New Buildings. The various build
ings now going up, in this city, are pro
gressing finely. We are glad to see that
our citizens are disposed to build with
brick ; giving as it does, any place, a per
manence and neatness in appearance.
Oua Fr.RRY. We are glad to lenrn
that our new Steam Ferry Boat, is well
patronized, and is making constant trips
between Bellevue and Junction City.
The boat is well officered, and fully de
serves the patronage that she is now re
ceiving. Editor Gaxette : Yesterday I cross
ed the Missouri River at Bellevue, on the
Steam Ferry Boat, II. II. Hardin, and
noticed the time of crossing by my watch,
which was 3 1-2 minutes. I went to
Council Bluffo and thence to Omaha,
crossing the river on the Steam Ferry
Boat at that place, in 17 3-4 minutes.
Absent. Judge W. H. Cook, left our
city yesterday, for a visit U his friends in
the Keystone State. He will be absent
about two months. He is a popular J udge
and a good citizen, and we hope he will
induce more of the same sort to emigrate
to Nebraska. Good luck to you, Judge.
May your sojourn with " the loved ones
at home," be pleasant and profitable.
Just Like Him.-T. W. Whittington
Jeft us several Nutmeg Musk-Melons last
week. They were first rate, and no mis
take. Tbose Plums. Our friend John,
who sits on the box, and presides over the
Whiteys, between Bellevue end Omaha,
lias our thanks for a lot of wild Plums.
Pears. We were presented with a
lot of Pears, by H. T. Clarke, a few days
since. They were good, too.
All Hands in Luck. Tuesday af
ternoon, as we were " pursuing the even
tenor of our way," a gentleman dropped
in, and gave all hands an invitation to
take supper at the Ferguson House ; and
the appointed time found us on hand, to a
man, with vigorous digestives, fully pre
pared for the occasion. We partook of a
first rate s'upper, gotten up by a Nebraska
Cook, had a social chat, and enjoyed our
selves generally. Gentlemen of the Fer
guson House! you have our individual
and collective thanks, now and forever.
Good, Better, Best. Who wouldn't
be an editor ? just think of it. During
the past week, there has been a regular
avalanche of good things, pouring into
our office, from "early morn till dewy eve,"
consisting of melons, plums, and pears ;
and then we were invited to a supper
Concluding this to be our last " God send,''
we Lad recorded our good luek, and gone
about other duties. But just in the nick of
time, as our supplies were running out, in
came Judge Cook, bearing a burden of
monstrous size, which he proceeded to un
roll in a formal manner, as though i
were some antiquated mummy, and soon
brought to view, a huge pile of apples.
We " pitched in," and ate to our heart's
content, thinking of the days of yore,
when we use to make daily vista to our
favorite trees, in the old on hard, and
occasionally extending our excursions to
the neighbor's. Ah, Judge, in the full
ness of our heart, w can only say
Wild Plums ore now
lit tu roa FLRAisun. -Last Sat
urday afternoon, as soon as the flection
of Judge Ferguson was known in this city,
our citizens repaired, with u sis-pounder,
to Elk Hill, and fired 1 00 guns in honor
of tho election of the Judge. As we lis
tened to tho booming of ennon, echoing
along the volley of tho Missouri, we fan
cied wo heard a " still, small voico," issu
ing from the domicil of our late Uolognte,
now defunct, singing the well known Af
" Oh, carry me back," &c.
with all the melancholic pathos exhibited
by a well known gentleman of color,
who was once proprietor of tho " Float
ing Scow," and made classic in song.
Ladies' Benevolent Association.
We had the pleasure of spending a few
hours with the Indies of this Association,
at the house of Rev. William Hamilton,
on Wednesday last. The object of these
ladies, is to procuro funds to furnish the
Methodist and Presbyterian churches, that
are now being erected in this city. As
that was their annual meothig, the follow
ing officers were elected : Pre.idenl,
Mrs. Lovejoy ; Vice President, Mrs. John
Finney ; Secretary, Mrs. Nye ; Treasur
er, Miss Maria Hamilton. The next
meeting will occur Wednesday, Sept. 2!J.
Steamers Arrived. The Wntossa
again heads our list. She arrived at our
landing, Friday, Sept. 4.
The Alonzo Childs arrived the same
day. She has our thanks for St. Louis
The Florence arrived Saturday, Sept.
5. She is a popular boat.
The Admiral cume up Saturday even
ing, Sept. 5, and discharged a large quan
tity of freight, for our merchants. The
Admiral is a capital boat, and Capt. Baker
and Mr. Darst, her Clerk, are gentlemen
whom the traveling public well remember.
The St. Mary passed up, Sunday morn
ing, Sept. G.
Sheriff's Sale. We would refer
our readers to the Sheriffs Sale, adver
tised in our paper, to take place at tho
Benton House to-day. The property to
be sold, was part of the original claim be
longing to II. T. Clark, of this city.
The land was purchased and pre-empted
by R. C. Willson, who attempted to play
the rascal, but we believe not with success.
When will all men learn that honesty is
the best policy ? Remember the sale.
We call attention to the advertisement
of Bartels & Metz, in to-day's paper.
They have recently located in our city;
and have erected a large two story More,
on the corner of Main and 21st Streets,
which they nov occupy. We have ex
amined their goods, and find them to be
of the first quality, and at low prices.
They are gentlemen, in every respect ;
and we hope our citizens will give them a
call, and satisfy themselves.

The British steamer Cyclops had re
turned to Valcntia, with Mr. Field on
board. That gentleman immediately re
paired to London, to confer with tho Di
rectors, and telegraphed from London on
Saturday, as follows:
"Iter majesty s steamer Leopard, ar
rived at Portsmouth on Friday evening,
and reports that the Atlantic cable .was
lost at a quarter before 4 o clock on Tues
day morning the 11th inst., after having
laid out successfully 33 j nautical miles of
it 100 miles of it being laid in water over
two miles in depth, and the greater part
of it while going at rather more than five
miles per hour. At that time there was a
heavy swell on. The Niagara wns going
at the rate of 4 knots per hour, and as the
Lngineer found that the. cable was run
ning out in too great a proportion to the
speed of the ship, he considered it neces
sary to direct the breaks to be applied
more firmly, when the cable parted, some
distance from the ship."
The Agamemnon, Niagara and Susqiie
hana, will remain a short time where the
cable parted, to try some experiments in
deep water in that part of the Atlantic,
which is considered, will be of great value
to the Telegraph Company, and then a'l
go to Plymouth England. The experi
ence now obtained must be of great value
to the company, and it is understood that
the Directors will decide whether to have
more cable made and try again immedi
ately after the equinoctial gales, or wait un
til another summer.
The impression prevails at Liverpool
that another trial will take place in October.
The vessels were returning to England
with the remainder of the cable, still ovr
2.000 miles in length, and perhaps suffi
cientto unite the two continents.
The directors are sanguine of ultimate
A conference was to be held in London
on the 15th inst., for the purpose of deter

We learned yesterday, from a ftiend
in Iowa, jr.st on his return from the State
Democratic Convention of Iowa, held at
Iowa City, 2Cth ultimo, that the conven
tion passed oil' very harmoniously, and
willi an imusutil amount of determination
and assurance, on the part of the Dele

Benjamin M. Samuels, of Dubuque,
was nominated for Governor, and Geo.
Gallaspy, of Wapello County, for Lieut.
Governor. We understand our old friend
John H. Sherman, of Pottawntamie Co.,
received a very complimentary vuto for
Lieut. Governor, We are pleased to hear
this concerning our friend Sherman. It
has been our pleasure to know him sever
al years; and although a very young man.
to bo spoken of in connection with so dis.
tinguished a position nevertheless the
compliment was justly duo Mr. Sherman;
and such a nomination, young as he is
would have reflected credit upon the De
mocracy and the Slate of Iowa ; for the
Democracy of Iowa liuvo no more tried,
uncompromising anil unflinching Demo
crat than John ll.Shermiin. With liisclonr
head and good judgment, and by his pow
erful pen, ho has done much for the
cause ; and that friend John may live to
reap the glorious reward, in thu chapter

cause, so richly merits, is our earnest

An Arr ant Poltroon, The last num
ber of Chapman's organ, published at
Omaha City, yclept ye Ntbrnshian, indul
ges in some low-flung scurrility, and stale
falsehoods in relation to the Nonpareil.
This is very easily accounted for Chap
man has been defeated, and tho editor,
like his master, feels "orful" bud, and
wants to euse his mind, by giving vent to
his wounded "phelinx." Poor fellow! if it
docs him any good to cull us hard names,
we will not object. It is not to wondered
at, that hi feels bad, for the man who
brought him to tho Territory, gave him
shelter, clothed his unbreeched limbs, and
astonished his pockets, by helping him to
reach up into Uncle Sam's "strong box,"
has been defeated. Wo certainly could de
sire no higher commendation und eulogy,
than the abuse of such a person ns(he ed
itor of the Nebrankian, who unites the
contemptible vices of vulger impertinence,
low servility, and base demagogueism, with
that of arrant poltroonery. Under the con
trol and direction of Chapman, this editor
fir.-t emerged from obscurity, to which his
intellectual imbecility and moral deficiency
had consigned him in Ohio, und he is now
in a fair way to be again consigned to that
fate from which his servility, his adapta
bility to u nervice loo base fur the generality
of men, could alone hnve dragged him.
Such a character ordinarily, only the scav
enger and nuisance abater would be justi
fied in handling witha pair of tongs. We
have no difjiositio'n to htir him. Council
