Iu assuming the publication and chair
editorial, of the Gazette, it devolves upon
me to make inv bow, to the rendera and
patrons of the establishment.
Although the Gazette will remain Dem
ocratic, as heretofore, I wish it to bo rfiV

self responsible for the political doctrines
that may be advocated in its columns.
Believing as I do, that the vitality ami

I shall labor for the development and
general prosperity of lkllevue and Sarpy

HENRY M. BURT.
A Winter's Ride Across Iowa.
It was n sunny day in June, when I left
my New Englund home, for one in the
far west; and after many turns and wind
in&rs. I halted at the beautiful town of
Beloit, Wis. It was then further decreed
that 1 xhould again journey toward the
st'ltinur sun, and find u home west of the
turbid iu id turbulent Missouri
Leaving Bloil, Saturday, Dec. 13,
proceeded to Chicago, where I remained
till Monday morning, and then took a seat
in the cars for Iowa City, Reached Da
venport that evening, but as no train had
arrived from Iowa City, owing to the se
vere storm of the day previous, our train
was not to proceed farther till morning.
After considerable delay, next morning,
occasioned by the engine getting olT the
track, the night previous, as the Iowa City
train came iu, we finally started, drawn
by two locomotives. The snow had blown
on the track during the night, and our
progress was slow. Before going over 10
mites ve were stuck fast in a snow drift.
By considerable shoveling, and getting up
more steam, we succeeded, after sundry
jerking, in getting out of the drift, but
only to encounter others that were quite
as difficult to past through. It was sun
set when we arrived at Iowa City, and I
immediately engaged a seat in the mail
coach for Council Bluffs, which was to de
part in the morning. During the evening
I was entertained by various individuals,
with stories of the probabilities of en
countering frequent delays, turn-overs,
impudent drivers, &.c, but having commit
ted myself, I determed to run the risk of
brokeu limbs, and the various inconven
jencies that might occur.
It was 10 o'clock, A. M before the
roach was ready for departure, There
were seven passengers, enough far a
social compaoy. Two of them were a
At each station, the drivers amused
lemsclvea by telling how many limes the
oach would tmbtillji up-sot before reach
ing the next, and as the roads were almoet
impassable, the chances for such an f xhi-
ition, did seem quite probable.
I.nte in the evening, we were safely
anded at the third station. The main
part of the building was unfinished, and
blanket hung over the door-way, to keep
out the wind. On entering, we found a
group of passengers from the west, around
miserable fire, waiting for the singe to
co cast. The landlord was not at noma,
but a stupid Irishman and a host of dogs,
iresided in their master's nWnce.
Simper was ordered, and served up in
io log mansion in the rear, which was
not over delicate in preparation, ns one of
tho passengers can testify, he having
iscovered the cridle-greascr in one of
ip buckwheat rnkes. While we were
it Ma a .
eating supper, ttto luiuiumi s tiaugnter, a
maiden of sixteen summers, sat in the
himney corner, pulling wrentht of smoke
from a huge pipe, with all the self-posses-
sion of one long skilled in the art and
brautirt of tobacco amoking. In fact, she
was an adept in " making rings," and I
tinro no doubt that she would make a pro
ficient teacher, to all those that aspiro to
greainMi in Ihi yrofrssioti.
Supper over, it was then decided that
our party were to co no runner ma
night. Then came the important epies

foresaid maiden became anxious as to
the fate of the drivers she seeming to

One of our number prepared himself a
bed on the floor in the bar room, while
the rest of us ascended a ladder into the
garret of the log house. Here were six
beds in close proximity, and in one corner,
partitioned off with a curtain, was the
bridal chamber. The wind was blowing,
and the numerous cracks afforded good
ventilation. I was assigned a bed with
the " big man," and on taking a peep be
tween the sheets, we discovered their
doubtful color, and concluded the safer
way would be to button up our coats and
turn in," which we did. Thus passed
my first night in a log house.
Immediniely after breakfast, we resum-
ed our seats iu the coach. Before night,
a snow storm set in, and on meeting the
western hack, we were compelled to
change vehicles, as the driver sau it
would be impossible to get our conch
through the snow. The change was made
in a driving storm, which had set in a
short time previous ; and we were again
slowly plodding our way through the drift-
ing snow. We had arrived within a mile
of Montezuma, when the hack became
fast in a snow drift. The leaders broke
loose and started off on a run, leaving
the rond and going far out on the prairie,
where tho driver followed them with the
wheel horses, and succeeded in running
Purl of our company went into a farm
house near by, nnd the remainder walked
to town. In the evening our companions
joined us at the hotel, the hack having
been drawn iu with five yoke of cattle.
The snow storm turned to rain, and
when we left next morning, it was warm
and still thawing. We had a prairie
eighteen miles in extent to cross, and be
fore comer 10 miles it becan to sleet, and
crow colder. Coiniwr to a board Cabin
we stopped to warm, and then proceeded
We had not gone far when the storm be
came o violent that it was impossible to
keep the road, and were soon at a stand
still in a snow drift. Succeeding in ex
tricatimr the horses, we concluded the
safer way would be to leave the coach
as it would be difficult to get it out, and
retrace our steps to the Cabin. The
lady was wrapt in blankets and robes and
placed on one of the horses, with her hus
band, and turning our backs to the storm
we followed our track to the Cabin, that
we had left a half hour previous, then lit

Slowly wore away the bight, as I laid
shivering with coli, and listening to the
howling winds as they went sweeping by.
Every blast ctused our frail habitation to
creek and swny before its mighty force,
sometimes seeming impossible for it to
survive the storm. At length morning
came, and with it a lull in the winds.
On going out all was quiet, and Old Sol
was just peering above the horizon, reflect
ing his effulgent rays on the rrystalized
snow, that covered the prairie ; and
as the sky was cloudless, such a sun rise
was indeed beautiful. The half burried

up from that broad expanse, like the hulk
of a stranded vessel. " with masts and

We watched with great anxiety, for

lost the road, and went several miles out of
their way, but fortunately came to another

Organisation of the Democratic
The Nefrakian of last week, comes to
us with some sensible remarks in favor of
the organization of the Democratic party.
We are among those who believe that the
time has arrived when such an organiza
tion, is not only essential in many partic
ulars, but for our well being politically, is
rendered more absolutely necessary.
There i now no question, but that three
fourths of the intelligent voters of Nebras
ka, are Democratic; indeed, policy nloue in
our Territorial existence, would seem too
plninly to indicate the course for the fu
fure certain welfare of the Territory, to
be mistaken by any, who have a just and
proper regard, for the host of good that has
been done for the Territory, by a single
enactment of Congress. And that is de
pending in future upon the action of the
great national Democratic party, ns well

Before reaching the next station, 10
miles distant, a suow storm set in, but had
ceased when we arrived there, and we
concluded to proceed. We had not gdhe

impossible to keep the horses in the road
With great reluctance the driver yieldec
to our entreaties. As night was coming
on and having just emerged from one
north-wester, we were not disposed to run
the risk of remaining out all night on the
prairie, in a stage conch, which we most
certainly would have done, had we gone
farther. We had gone but a short dis
tance on our return, when the coach stuck
in a snow drift. Fortunately a log house
was only a quarter of a mile otT, and we
soon reached it. We found a comfortable
fire within, which was quite acceptable
after having been thoroughly chilled in
the storm, and thankful were we that so
good quarters had been obtained.
Early in the evening we retired. Four
of us found beds in the kitchen, where
the snow was continually blowing in, but
having plenty of bed clothing. I obtained
a good night's sleep. My bed fellow, un
fortunately, being a six-foot llootier, and
considerable longer than the bed, had a
sorry time before morning.
The storm, which ass more severe than
the one just encountered, ceased at day
light, We took our departure about 8

the sympathies and best wishes of three
fourths of the squotters of the Territory;
and ftoin his heretofore high standing in
our community, and marked and acknowl
edged ability, we expect much from his
hands to advance the interest of our young
and fast growing Territory. We hope
the Judge will spare no time or (rouble in
urging upon the present Congress at the
earliest moment, an appropriation to bridge
the great Platte River. The government
has now in gold, locked up in its Treasury
vaults, many millions of dollars, which for
all the good it does where it now is, might
as well be lying at the bottom of the Ocean.
Much of this has been taken this year from
the hnrdy.enterprising pioneer of the wilds
of Nebraska, for the lands which cost our
government less than seven cents per acre.
It is due us then, to say nothing about the
fostering enre the general government ha
had, ami should have over the wonts and'
wishes of n y mug Territory. Every dol

in the construction of road and bridges,
yields in the future, to the government di

eagerly so ight territory of public lands.
wo hundred thousand dollars appropria

the Platte river, would be but the smallest
