I3ELLEVUE GAZETTE. H EN UY M. HUUT, Nrw rM Local Editor. BELLEVUE, N. T. THURSDAY.' JULY 8. 1858. A tilde to Falrflew and riall ford. Leaving our City, a short time since we aet out for a brief visit to the western portion of this County. A ride of near ly two hours over a beautiful and rolling prairie, dotted here and there with culti va'cd' fields, brought us to the town of Fairview. This town, as it name indi cates, is indeed a fair view. It it situ ated on a high and level plateau, about half a mile north of the Platte, overlook ing the valley and the River which passes eastward, as it were, at our feet. The River is visiblo several miles both on the east and vest of the town, and is filled with Islands, that are covered with a dense forest of timber. On the opposito side of the River, the. steep and irregular bluffs of southern Nebraska, approach to the River's edge, and are covered with hard-wood timber. On the cast, 10 miles distant, the range of bluffs, that skirt the Missouri on its eastern bank, rearing their lofty heads heavenward, are distinctly visible. On the north and west a vast prairie stretches far away, and is lost to the eye in the shadowy distance. The whole scenery, presents a panoramic view, un surpassed by any that we have seen in Nebraska. Thero is plenty of timber near the town, and an abundance of lime and sand rock, suitable for building purposes, can be quarried from the bluffs near at hand. In several places coal has been discover ed out-cropping from the sides of the ad jacent ravines. We examined where an an attempt had been made to open a coal bank. The vein was only three inches thick, where it out-cropped, but at the ter minus of the opening, a distance of fif teen feet, it had increased to three feet. Fairview possesses the natural elements that will, we presume, give it prominence among the towns on the Plate River. From Fairview, we continued westward directing our steps toward Plattford, which itj about 10 miles from F., and as tho golden ruys of twilight, were changing into darkness, we halted at Elm Grove( near Plattford, where we spent the night with our friend J, In the morning we took a stroll over the surrounding country, which is unsurpassed in fertility. On entering Plattford, we found that a portion of its inhabitance had retired to their farms, a short distance from town, and were busily engaged in agricultural pursuits, where they had sown, that they wight reap in seed time and harvest. Plattford is situated on the north bank of Platte River, whero it makes a bend nearly at right angles, to the north. The towu site is far above high water mark, with a gentle slope to the River, and should the Platte become a navigable stream, Plattford will make a town of no small pretensions. There is an abundance of timber, lime and sand rock, near at hand, which are indispensable to the growth and prosperi ty of a town, as well as to an agricultural community. The people in an about Plattford, are intelligent, sociable and industrious, and are just the class of inhabitants that make a desirable community. We were highly gratified to note the agricultural industry that is manifested in that vicinity. Large fie'ds have been fenced, and put under cultivation, and a great abundance of farm produce will be raised there this season. Many of the farmers are grow ing large quantities of Sugar Cane, One, living a little north of Plattford has planted 14 acres. Sugar Cane, will with out doubt, become a staple crop, in this County. Com and potatoes, as yet, are the pi io cipal crops. Potatoes were looking fine Corn showed the effects of the frequent and copious rains, that occurred during the spring, but we presume it willl do better this season, than it has for sev eral years past. Local Editor, , Fast Age. . Perhaps one of the greatest evils of the present age, is its fastness. The past is thrown into the shade by the evolutions .of lhe present.

Forani or Jtlv Celebratioms. We have been favored this year with an tmusual amount of Fourth of July Patri otism. The 4th occurring this year on Sunday, our citizens celebrated the 82d anniversary of our National Independence at such times and places, as best suited their notions and convenience. The celebration was opened with a Ball at Owenton, on Friday evening, in which many of our citizens participated. On Saturday, the Ladies' Benevolent Society, held a celebration in this City, in accordance with the programme publish ed in our last, with the exception of the place in which the exercises were held The hard rains of the day previous, ren dering the Grove an unfit place, in which to hold the exercises of tho day, the Church wa procured f?r the occasion- The dinner was served in the building known as the Bellevue Store. As the usual courtesies were not extend ed to the members of the press, we were not in attendance, therefore are not able to speak from observation, of the celebra tion ; but we learn from those present, that every thing passed ofT harmoniously, and with general satisfaction. The pro ceeds from the sale of tickets, at the din ner, were as large as might have been expected in these hard times. The German' held a celebration in the Grove, south of the Ciry, on Sunday, the 4th, where they participated in amuse ments common in the fatherland. We understand that they had a very pleasaut . time. A Ur.ion Sunday School Celebration, was held at Bennett's Grove, near the Tappillion Creek, a short distance from this City, on Monday, as previously ar ranged, in which the children of the Franklin, Bellevue, Clifton, Saling's Grove, and Fairview Sabbath Schools participated. The members of the Bellevue and Clifton Schools, assembled at the School House, in this City, and took their depart ure for the Grove, under the direction of the Marshal of the day, II. T. Clarke. The citizens joined in the procession, which consisted of nearly 30 large vehi cles, well filled, headed with a band of Martial Music, and the Star Spangled Banner, following soon alter, was an ox tenn, behind which were seated a baker's dozen of good natured, fun-loving fellows, who sent forth blasts ot music, not from burnished Bugles, but from monstrous Tin Horns, presenting a pic ture worthy a place in a Comic Almanac Tho Delegation from Owenton, not having arrived, when the Bellevue Dele gation reached tho Grove, the Band set out to escort them in. In a short time, music was heard, approaching the Grove, All were now on tip toe, eager to catch the first glimpse of the Delegation, as it was generally understood that it would be a sight worth seeing; and sure enough we were not disappointed, when the long string of oxen slowly wended their way- down the hill-side, and appeared in sight, They numbered 29 yoke, under the man agement of Wm. Carlile, and were at tached to a ponderous vehicle, fitted up expressly for the occasion, which was covered and beautifully decorated with evergreens. The car contained the Su perintendent, Teachers and Scholars of the Franklin Sabbath School, and from the mast-head above, floated in the gen tie breeze, our Nation's Flag. Leaving the car the children marched to the Grove, preceded by a youth, bearing a very appropriate banner, who was sup ported on either side by a young Miss dressed in white. The banner was ele gantly festooned, and in front was inscrib ed, " Fran'ilin Sabbath School of Platte Valley," and on the reverse, " The Bible our Guide." The whole affair displayed a taste and enterprise, truly commenda ble. This Delegation, triumphantly bore away the palm. All were soon seated in the Grove where suitable seats had been provided The Orator and Speakers of the day,- Su perintendents of the different Schools Mayor of Bellevue, Probate Judge, and Local Editor of the Gazette, were then invited to take seats on the Speaker's stand, when the order of exercises were commenced by a song from a select Choir of Ladies and Gentlemen, entitled " Star Spangled Banner," which was followed by Martial Music, A brief and appropriate prayer was made by Rev. Wm. Hamilton The Declaration was read bv Wm. Mitchell, of the Franklin Sabbath School in a clear and forcible manner. The Oration was delivered by Chi (Justice Hall. It wasa plain, unassuming 1 effort, and highly creditable to its author and was listened to with profound atten tion, by the audience. At the closo of the Oration, the assem bly repaired to the long table, well filled with the choicest viands, which were soon dispatched. During the afternoon exercises, short and pertinent speeches were made by B. P. Rankin, Joseph Dyson, the Agent of the American Sunday School Union, and Rev. Wm. Hamilton. Several appropriate Airs were eung during the day, by the children, under the leadership of J. P. Kast. The declamatory exercises by the chil dren, formed a very entertaining feature of the ceremonies of the day. They acquitted themselves in a manner that re flected great credit on themselves, and their teacher, Mrs. Nye. The various exercises were interspers ed with Martial Music, and songs by the Choir. We were much gratified to witness the urge attendance, and general interes1 manifested in the Celebration. Indeed, we hardly expected so many women and children could be gotten together at such short notice. The exercises were closed at a late hour, by partaking of Ice Creams, made on the ground, and when we left, the children, both large and small, were ' pitching into," the frozen Cow-juice, with an unmistakable sign of satisfaction A free dance came off in the evening, n this City, in which a large number of Ladies and Gentlemen participated, and thus ended the Celebration for 1953, of our country's greatest holiday. The following has been handed us, with request to publish. It is a matter well worthy of consideration : ' The citizens of Bellevue, are requesisd to meet at the School House, on Saturday evening, June 10, at 8 o'clock, to consider the propriety of building a hotel on the spot selected ast fall, for that purpose. The hotel to cost not less than five thounsand, and not more than eight thousand dollars. The way proposed, is this Issue fifty shares at $100 a share, and then let every man furnishing money, material or labor, come in for one or more shares, as he sees fit. In this way we could build a hotel that would do credit to the town, besides giving work to many mechanics and laborers, during these dull tims. The merchants could supply hard ware, the lumbermen lumber, the speculator lots, &c. In this way it need not, in reality, cost any cash. All that feel interested in such a move ment, will attend the meeting, and give their support Come one, come all. A CITIZEN & MECHANIC. Platte Riv er. From the amount of water emptied into the Missouri by this stream, we cannot help thinking that it may yet.be made navigable, by some sort of slackwater improvement. The incal culable benefit that the navigation of this river would be to the Territory, ought certainly to induce exploration and exper iment. The Bellevue Gazette suggests the purchase of a light draft steamer for this purpose. This is a good idea. If this cannot be done, we suggest the fol lowing : Let a party of three or four young men take a skiff in a wagon as far up as Powhocco, or Cedar Bluffs, and then placing the skiff in the river, float leisurely down, sounding frequently, and in shallow places examining the nature of the obstruction. We are willing to make one of a party of thi3 kind, at any time when not too closely pressed with other business. Who will second the mo tion ? Pacific City Herald. Friends of the Platto Valley, will you second the motion t We will also make one of a party for the purpose proposed by our neighbor of the Herald. IroRMATio!f Wanted. A young man, named William McCombs, of Ne braska City, formerly of Edinburg, Port ago County, Ohio, left Council Bluffs, la. on a business errand to Sioux City, on the 22d of May, last, and has not been heard of since ; having never arrived at Sioux City, and his friends are much alarmed as to his welfare. When he left for the Bluffs, he had on black broad cloth coal and pants, a figur ed plush vest, and drab colored hat, and rode a sorrel horse, with a white stripe in its face ; its eyes defective ; nearly blind in one eye. McCombs was about 23 years of age, near 6 feet high, full faced, rather light hrr, and blue eyes. Any information in regard to him will be thankfully received and amply reward ed by his friends.
