I f avi spoken last week if the two Pap

name our remarks respecting the above
The Elkhorn river, having its rise be
tween the 42(1 and 43d parallel of latitude,
flows south nnd empties its waters into th
Tlatte in the. extreme west of this county.
Iltuwcou these two rivers, scvernl miles
apart, (hero is n wide bottom or volley,
consisting of lands (ho most beautiful and
productive; scarcely equaled by the far
fumed valley of tho Genesee in the P.m.
piro State. Tho occasional overflow of
this valley only adds to its fertility. On
tho east side of this stream, the bottom is
usually narrower, tho hind's nt places hug
ging it quite closely. On these numerous
elevations, too beautiful to bo called Mull's,
there are ninny of the most ile.'iruble spots
for residences in the world; the beautiful
nnd highly picturesque scenery of this re
gion ullbids ample scope for the most pro
This ttrenm is some one hundred and
twenty-five rods wide, nnd of sufficient
depth to admit of steanibont navigation.
Settlers wilt find here timber in sullicient
quantities for all practical purposes.
Tho advantage of this region have at
tracted the titurdy, energetic yeomanry
thither, who are cultivating tho toil and
raising every tiling necessury for their own
mibsistnnce. This region is one of the
most delightful in the; Great West; if ad
veuturers aro not satisfied here they may
ns well look no farther.
Tho south part of this county is occu
pied fcy tho riatto valley from a quarter
i to six miles in width, nnd is rich and fer
tilo in the highest degree. Tho whole of
this bottom hits sometime been occupied by
waters of the Tlatte. Of this wo aro sat
isfied from personal examination. In
June lust wo dug on this bottom through
two feel of rich toil, when we struck a
layer of butch sand, some foot nnd half
in thickness Wo then reached ngnin a
natural soil, which was nearly two feet in
' thickness, when wc struck the natural sand.
This examination convinced us that the
water once flowed upon the natural soil.nnd
changing its course, tho sand was washed
upon tho place it occupied; and since that
period tho rains had washed from the
bluffs above, tho earth which had formed
n layer on the sand. Years, however,
may have passed along in the process.
( ien. Sarpy bays that he has been all over
the first bottoms tome seasons, in canoes.
It is now several years since these broud
bottoms have been overflowed. i
This valley is considered already the i
most valuable of any lands in the country,
and they will rise in importance as their
richness and fertility are more and more
developed. To say nothing about their
utility, they aro scarcely unequaled for
beauty. From a given point, as fur as the
eye can reach, you see the land with its
face gently declining toward tho sunny
south, cut up into pieces of 1G0 acres each;
they will make the best farms in the world.
Along the banks of this river as well us
on islands in the river, we find cotton wood, '
walnut, oak and hickory. G roves are f re
queut, around which the farmers have
fenced their farms, and are cultivating
them with great Mieeess. There is abun
dance of timber for all the purposes of
fence, fuel and building. There is no
county in the Territory ttfiere there is as
much timber, except the reservation of the
Omaha's at Mack Hud Hills.
Thus Sarpy county is one of command
ing attention to the sealers und of incalcu
lable advantage to its chief city. The
tract of land lying within its precincts, is,
without any laudation the garden spot of
the Territory. The richness and excee
ding fertility of its soil, tho immence
quantities of timber along its numerous
streams the many springs gushing up
from unknown depths, dotting almost eve
ry farm the already honest, enterprising
settlers that are reaping the rich rewards
of toil, all conspire to make this the most
iuviling 6pot west of the Missouri river.

Tho weather was delightful und the sea

tho afternoon of the day of sailing from
Havana fresh westerly breezes sprung up.
On tho following morning the wind blew
very strong, the gale continued to increase

there was no abatement in the fury of the

On Thursday it blew u htunaigee, the
sia running very high. On Friday, the
storm raged fearfully. At 11 o'clock in
in the morning of this day, it was lirsi
known umong the passengers that the
steamer had sprung u leak, and was mak
ing water fust. A lino of men was im
mediately formed, and they went to work

much that we were able to get up steum

and then sfie stopped forever. Ikiiling,

gained gradually, but all on board being
in pretty good spirits, they worked to the
best of their ability, feeling that when
the morning came they possibly might
speak some vessel and thus be saved.

Still we worked on, and about 2 o'clock in

sent up two rockets, when a tremendous
sea swept over us nnd the steamer in a

450 souls were launched upon the ocean
at the mercy of the waves. The storm at
this moment hnd entirely subsided. We
all kept near together, and went as tho
waves look us. There was nothing or
verv Imln said, excetit that each one
cheered his fellow comrade on. Courage
was thus kept up for two or three hours,
and I think for that space of time no ono

Tim f.illowin'T account was furnished
to the N. Y. Tribune, by Mr. C. II. Den

lulul loss of the Central America, found

of the 12ih itiat., during the late severe

Our informant had been picked up on
the night of the disuster, floating about on
fragments of the wreck, by tho rtoi we
ginn bark F.llen. Capt. Johnson, from Be
lize, Honduras, bound to Falmouth, Eng
land, which vessel he reported coming up
the Hay in low of a small steamer.
It was likewise understood 'hat all the
the women and children, some of the lat
ter infants in ull fifty-six in number, had
been saved in the steamer s boats, before
she sunk, nnd put on board the brig Mu
rine of lloston. " Sir," mid our inform
ant, "five hundred men, wiih death
yawning before them at any moment,
stoold solid as rock, nor made a move for
the boats until the women and children
haJ all been safely transported to the brig

mule passengers in a few trips reached
the latter vessel before the Bteumer went
Cupt. McGowan, abandoning his pre
vious intention, immediately got his ship
under weigh, steamed down the harbor,
and when near the light-ship, spoke the
bark, with her quota of the saved.
Hailing her, he proffered u passage to
New l oi k to all who chose to accept it
The majority were taken on board, and,
with a parting round with three hearty
cheers for their preservers, we proceeded
on our course, hoping to fall in with the
brig, and reliev the women and children.
Withiu three miles of Cape Henry, a ves
sel was descried ahead in low of a pro
peller, liound in, and immediately specu
lation was rife as to whether she might or
not prove to be the vessel tve sought.
Glasses were leveled at her by anxious
groups gathered forward, ard as tve rap
idly closed together, certainly succeed sur
mise, nnd to the joy of all, tshe proved to
be the brig Marine, in tow of the City of
Norfolk propeller, her low and confined
decks, swarming with wretched-looking
objects, many of them wo:nen and chil
dren, wringing their hands and weeping
and laughing by turns, hysterically. Our
loats were speedily lowered, and Cupt.
McGowan, in the first boat, boarded the
brig in person, caressed, embraced, and
indeed half strangled by the poor women,
who threw themselves upon him as he
reached the deck.
As boat load after boat load renched
our ship's side and ladder, each vied with

and in a short time the great portion were
& t .1
ing between the two parties inoiner
claiming son, and husband wife; the ea
ger scanning of each face in agonizing
fear and expectation, the joy or grief
manifested as recognition or disappoint
ment awaited the gazer, was touching in
tho extreme, straining the heart strings
and moistening the eyes of many hitherto
unused to such manifestation. A portion
remained on board the brig, preferring to
go up to Norfolk, and when all who wish
ed had boen taken ou board, the Empire
City again started with her freight of un
fortunates for New York.
Nix;ty-six in all were reported to have
been saved by the brig, exclusive of the
colored stewardess, who died from ex
haustion, shortly after having been taken

her bouts stove in the gnle, and every in

on board by lines thrown them as she

und drifting to leeward, as the cries of
those ubout him, from those whom he
could not see through the darkness of the
night, dictated. 1 heir escape is unequal
cd in the annuls of marine disaster and
relief. The officers of the Empire City,
grieving for the loss of their brother offi
cers, have yet a feeling of pride nnd satis
faction in knowing that they died at their
posts, striving to save life to the last, and
point to the fuel that all the women and
hildren were saved (not an infant lost, l

and manliness, seldom excelled, if equal

Incidents. Many of the survivors
slate thnt there was seldom so large an
amount of money owned by passengers as
was the case of those who came by the
Central America. Many were persons
of large means, and there were but very
few whose immediate wealth did not
amount to hundreds, while numbers reck
oned their gold by the thousands of dol
lars. The greater portion of the passen
gers were returned miners, some coming
hither to invest the capital they hud real
ized in hopes to live a life of greater ease
as the result of their industry, and others
to get their families and once more go to
the land of gold, liui as the storm con
tinued to rage, less and less was thought
of gold, and when, on Saturday, it became
evident that they were likely at any mo
ment 10 be buiied beneath the wavoo, weal
thy men divested themselves of their treas
ure belts and scattered the gold upon the
cuhiu floors, telling those to take it who
would, lest its weight a few ounces or
pounds carry them lo'their death. Full
purses, containing in some instances S2,
000, were laying untouched ou sofas.
Carpet-bags were opened by men and the
shining metal was poured out on the flour
with the prodigality of death's despair.
One of the passengers who has fortunately
been rescued, opened a bog and dashed
about the cuhin S20.000 in gold dust, and
told him who wanted to gratify his greed
for gold to take it. But it was passed by
untouched as the veriest dross. A few
hours before he would have struck down
the man who would hnve attempted to take
n grain of that which he now spurned from
The passengers rescued from the wreck

A young man by the name of Caldwell,
