Now that Congress, the politicians and the people are talking of Nebraska, it may ' . a , 'i be interesting for our readers to accompa i !i .'ilf -..wl , ...t,nn xij u3 w w . J , ... . braska. ' In visiting this unorganized territory, upon which there is now so much dispute, "we must first go by any route we chose to the citv of bt. Louis. Here will take a steamboat and float for hundreds of 1 miles to the mouth of the Kansas river "We land here, and are in the region call ed Nebraska. If we were pleased to take another rteamboat, we could go up the Kansas river, or nearly west, towards the interior. But let us prefer ratherto continue our voyage up the Missouri, still by steam boat, for some 'hundreds of miles. We are now at the mouth of Platte river, or the Nebraska, which means, "Shallow Bottom." It is rightly named, for though it is from one to three miles wide, it is generally very shallow, and steamboats pass up its waters for only forty miles. By this river Col. Fremont passed much of the way, on his route to California and Oregon in 1842. In his journals of his two expeditions, there, is, probably, more information on Nebraska than can be ob tained from all other books. We find Nebraska to be a vast region. By -the late census it isestimated at 136, 700 square miles, or a region as large as N. England, N.York, New Jersey, Dela ware and Maryland, and even larger. If organized as proposed by the bill of Mr. c JUOUglas, now penuing ill V-ongress, il win be larger still, as it will embrace mucb of what has been known as the Iudian Ter ritory. We find the Northern part of Nebras ka as cold as New England; the interior as cold as the climate of the middle States, and southern portion with something of j the mildness of Virginia. There is, how- i ever, this difference; Nebraska is more j There are vast prairies, high table lands thousands of miles above the level of tho sea rivers of almost interminable lennth. " ... . . .
