NfcBKASKJ. CITY , .TnuiryT2& On
the morning of the 23d of Septembert
18G3 , I first set foot on Nebraska fid
Biitern miles below this town. I had
come up the Missouri in the steamer
Emily from St. Joseph , then the near *
est railroad point t3 Omaha. After
ivo-days paddling through the Big
faddy we grounded on a Band-bar ,
whore , after waiting two days , I was
eicued by a team sent from Nebraska
Oity , by order of Mr. W. B. Hibbard ,
ssistant division superintendent of
he then Pacific telegraph. At the
Ime I landed in ' 63 , this was a bust
ing busy little city , contiinia about
he same population as Omaha and re
garded by many as the foremost rival
o the present Nebraska metropolis
? en years later , on my second visit , I
ound Nebraska City s dly demoral-
zed by the loss of the overland trade ,
which had formerly becu the mainstay
f her merchants aud hud been entire-
y cut off by the construction of the
Tnion Pacific. The town on my last
visit in 1873 had a cilapidued ap-
> earanco , very much Ilka snmo of the
Id Virginia towns at tha close of the
war. I was much gratified on land-
n. here again to day to note a marked
mprovement. Although Nebraska
Jity has not kept pace with Omaha
and Lincoln in growth , she is a solid
hriving town and has every prospect
of becoming an important trade con-
re in the near future. Otoe county

and best cultivated counties in

Nebraska Oity , and renewed some of
the old acquaintances I had made years
ago in the legislature * The old ri
valry between Omaha and Nebraska
3hy balng a thing of the past , every
body I met seemed anxious for the
early completion of the trunk line and
closer cimmerciftl intercourse with
Omahb. In my rambles through the
city I found almpst universal gratifica
tion expressed over the election of
Gen. Van Wyck. The general and
his estimable lady are very popular ,
and with the exception of half a dozen
menwhose lofty aspirations are some

tion , all seem to rejoice over the selec
tion made by the legislature , and on
every hand the event is regarded as
the forerunner of great things for
While talking over old times with
Dr. Bo wen , who played a very promi
nent part in the early political history
of Nebraska , the doctor Informed me
that he was the first man that put the
cenatorial bee into Gen. Van Wyck's
bonnet It was way back several
years before the war , when plain M < s
ter Van Wyck came on a stumping
tour for the "free soil whi s" to the
sparsely settled territory of Nebraska.
' If you will come out here , take up
a land claim and settk ( with us , we
will make yon United States senator
some of these dy"said Dr. Bnwcn
to Mr. Van "Wyck , little dreaming
that his proposal would be accepted ,
and in the course of human events
his extravagant promise realized.
There was cons.derable stir and
bustle all day in preparing for the re
ception tendered to General and Mrs.
Van Wyck by the citizens of Otoe
county , an event which seemed to
create a good deal of commotion among
upper and lower tendom. The im
pression had gone forth that this waste
to be an aristocratic affair , and the
committee of arrangements found it
necestary to issue a manifesto in the
afternoon paper , aseuriug the people
that this was no swallow tail coat dres
parade , and that white-chokers and
kid cloves wore not essential for those
who desired to take pirt in the ova
tion. Central hotel , where the re
ceptiou took place , was jammed full
of people by 8 o'clock , many of them
sturdy , horny-fisted farmers from the
neighborhood , who wanted to eh ke a
live senator by the hand , and give ex
pression to their joy over the general's
election. All tne best and most infl
ential citizens , accompanied by theit
ladies , were also on hand , some oi
them in very tony toilets. Many dis
tinguished Nrbr&skans from v&riout
parts of. the state hd come to attend
the reception. Among these were
Ex-Grov. Fnrnas , ex Congressman MV
jors , Attorney-General Dilworth , Re *
Kent C&reon , of the University , unc
quite a number of members of the leg-
ulaturt > , from both houses. A special
train with 138 citizens of Nemaha
county , came in daring the evening
1'he committee of arrangements ,
consisting of Wm. E Hill , chairman ,
P ul Schminke , Anton Zimmprcr , J.
W. WhldemUb , Dr. Campbell and I.
A. Flemming , had m&do ample pre
parations for the event ; and the re
ception committee , composed ol
Mr. and Mrs. Senator H. F.
Cady , Representatives Ransom , Dr ,
N. B. Larah , J. W. Pearman , Davlc
Brown , 0. W. Seymour and Jamas W ,
Reed , were in attendance to provide
for the proper reception of tha quests. "
At abnut 8 o'clock Gen. and Mrs.
Van Wyck arrived at the hotel from
their residence in the country , and
were greeted by the Heltcan brass
band , who played "Hailto the Chief. "
The reception committee attended the
senatorial party to the parlnrs , aud in
a very short time the doors were
opened , and the reception proper bo
gan. The ladies and their gentle
men escorts passed through the parlor
first , and as ech couple came for
ward Hon. John 0. Watson presented
them to Senator Van Wyck , who in
turn introduced his wife , who stood
on his left For over an hour the
steady stream of humanity pissed
through the parlor , ard for each the
general and his lady had some kinder
or p'eaeant ' word. Mrs. Von Wyck ,
a lady whose charming manners h ive
won the hearts of everybody who has
met her , wa onore than ever radiant ,
