V. A Tilp South ol lh Platte.
-' Lat week we broke loose from our
.retirement. and, in company with three
ocia1, jovial fellows of this place, Hurled
yr Ntjhroska Ci'y. We wound our way
round the stylish residence of L. II Kin

struck on to the Territorial Road buili by

crossed this Platte river at this point by

landed safe in Cass County. Spending

. We hauled up for dinner at Queen's
Hotel, Plattsmouth. Here we expected
to find i.iany signs of hard times' by lh
dullness of business, and the usunl grum
bling of. business men ; but we found Uw
reverse. The improvements going on in
inany parts of the town, the stirring buoy
strides of the citizens, and the immense
tiles of freight strewn up and down the
Landing, gave strong evidences of the
actual prosperity of Plattsmouth. Having
rettcd'our nagsa id fully satisfied the in
ner P.iaa at Queen's well-spread table,
we broke out for Nebraska City..

found an . old l friend, Hon. Buck, a
tpVujber of the second Legislature, from
Casl Couuty, living in a large, and com
jioJous new dwelling. Mr. Buck has a
premium farm, and appearances indicate
hV teste ami enterprise as a practical far

bous were drawn tightly over Kitty and

Nebraska City is i place of no smalt pre

'bplwijtfnjoyeil since ' it was. ti
a City, which has already prod

of the U. S- supplies, and an 'army of

: We called vipon Mr. Reynolds of the
Vruf and found him on the uaro and
flourishing like a Green Bay horse. On
our depirtgre from said city we drove to
the handtiome residence of Hon, J. S.
Morton. After taking a sharp and pier
ring glance at the bottom of a glas from
Morton's side board, we passed to the
rear of his residence to get a bird's-eye
view of his celebrated trotting horse,

As we were about to start we noticed
a small specimen of the euiine species
which we admired, and on proper pre
sentation by said Morton of this young
" Dorg" according to law and cu-tom,
we seized nil ouiinul and stowed him
away under the earring i stat, unking n
mu-ic box of the same until we arrived
at Phitlstnnuth again. Here we found
our friends, true to the promise they bad
mad us on our downward trip, had gath
ered up the ril loin, silk", and crinoline
for a social dunce, which if we nre any
judge, was properly had at the Platte
Vallpy House, Mr. M'Carty proprietor.
This was the acme of our pleasure nnd
with nimble feet and a hearty good will
we whirled thro' the giddy mazes of the
dunce, and the house was 'redolent with
life, wit, and beauty, and all persons,
