Local & Miscellaneous. Iltnoiois Notices.. Next SuiiJay afternoon, at 2 o'clock, C. C. Co t will preach to the children of the Sunday School. His subject in tho evening, at 7 o'clock, will be, The Legitimate Province of the Pulpit. One week from next Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 19th, and 20th, die second Quarterly Meeting of the present Con ference year, will take place. Rev. Mr. Chevington, Presiding Elder of the Dis trict, will he present. 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. Traveler. 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 thank you. Wild Plums ore now markets. tellin; in our 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 rican melody, " 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 papers. 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. Weather is delightful ; cool and pleas ant The Atlantic Telerrafh a Fail ure. it will be seen by tlie iollowing, that the Atlantic Telegraph is, for the pre sent, a failure; but we are confident of its ultimate success: 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 success. A conference was to be held in London on the 15th inst., for the purpose of deter mining whether to go on immediately with the balance of the cable, or wait until another turnmer. Itriiiorrulit-lout rulioii in Iowa 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 gates, and other Democrats present, to carry tho State in the coming election. 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 of fume, which his faithfulness in the cause, so richly merits, is our earnest hope. OneCcnt Reward. The Ncbraskinji of last week offered the above reward, for the names of tho remaining two persons voting for Judgo Ferguson. We have the name of one of them, and if tho Neurits kian will send us a one. cent sliin-plaxler, payable in one year at ten prr ceid, wo will communicate the same. . No bucking now. 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 Bluffs Nonpareil.
