The Wyoming Telescope has twice an nounced and proclaimed to the world thut Ferguson was elected. Tho Nebraska Pioneer admits the fact. The Bellevue Gazette, we know has pub lished tho fact several times. The above are all tho papers published in the Territory, except ono published in Omaha called the A'tbraskian, and one at Dakota, called the Herald, both owned and published by 1). D. Chapman. Read what the Nebrsskian says, and most likely from Chapman's pen: I lis (Chapman's) opponent, Judge Ferguson, was holding his commission from the United Stales, as Chief J ustice of the Territory, at tho time of his nomina tion and election." The Washington Union nnd tho Cleve land Plain Dealer comes to us weekly, with L the announcement of Chapmuns flection. They received their information from tel egraphic despatches from St. Louis, or from some penny-a-liner correspondent, who drove Chapman's team across the stales, from Oberlin to Nebraska, with Chapman, to run for Congress. Will the Union and Plain Dealer do Justice lo the settlers of Nebraska? will they do justice to simple truth., and proclaim lo the world, the v act, that Judge Ferguson is elected? He received a majority of tho votes, lie received the certificate of election. The votes were counted by the board canvass era, composed by Gov. Izard, who voted for Ferguson; Judge Ulack, who voted for Chapman; Gen. Eslabrook, who voted for Chapman. worthy of Mirce.n, amid tho hardships of pioneer life, then truly Mr. K. justly de serves it. Our esteemed townsman, Silas A. Strickland, tmblisher of the Gazette, and member of the Unr, has removed lo the residence of Chief Justice Ferguson and Delegate elrct to Congress. Although this building was among tho first erected in this Territory, yet it is one of tho l ir gest and most comfortable We are glad to boo it occupied by one w ho has a butter half so well fitted to grace it. Silus has gono into the house of tho Chief Justice, wo expect yel to see him in his office. We notice that our friend Col. R. Love joy the pioneer fanner of Nebraska is Mill pursuing the even tenor of his way. His farm, a little out of town, as well as his city residence, afford ample evidence, not that he is going to be, but that he w a per muncnt resident among us. Mr. L. sue- rifired friends and honors and came to this pliire from the east, at an early day. The first breaking team ever brought into the Territory, was by him, and every one knows that he has used it to good advan tage. We leurn thut the Mayor of tho city George Jennings, intends to spend a few weeks in the east, on some business con netted with his coal mine. We wish him success, and hopo for a speedy return, bringing with him others possessed of the sumo persevering, enterprising spirit. While our Rank has suspended for a time, we are not in as bad a fix as many others. Most of tho deposits are already paid, and the bills will all be redeemed in duo time. No culpability whatever is at tached to Mr. Town, the gentlemanly cashier, or to any of tho officers or clerks of the Rank; tho cause was wholly ex traneous.

Prosperity of Uellevue. Amid ihe present panic that seems al most universal, our city teems to be doing better than we could reasonably expect. To say that we are not at all affected by the recent numerous failures, would be uu true; but it is also true that we do not feel the pressure as we had every reason to expect. We do but speak the actual facts in the case, when we bay thut Uellevue presents as many signs of life and enter prise at present, as at any period in its his tory. We have more buildings in process of erection, and those of a more substan tial and expensive character, than al any one period before.' Since our last issue, several very respectable buildings have been commenced, and some of them, if we should judge from the many workmen upon them, will soon be completed. Large accessions of goods are rolled upoo our levee, from almost every boat, showing thut there must be some consu mers somewhere. Our enterprising merchant, L. U. Kin ney, has just received a large assortment of goods, making quite an addition to the slock already on hand. Purchasers can find no better stock of goods in the Terri tory, nor prices any more moderate. Mr. Kinney is the pioneer merchant of Ne braska. The first stock of goods ever landed at this wharf w as by him; this was iii the fall of 1S-34. The Indian litle uot yet being extinguished, the agent would not allow him to open them; so he took them to St. Marys. As soon as tho treaty was signed, our pioneer Nebraska mer chant was on Land. The store in which 1:9 no. kens, was built and filled with History of Ilellevue An Indian flattie. We copy the following from the forth coming work, upon the history of Uellevue now in preparation by Rev, C C. Goss, of this city Just back of the Renton House, there is to bo seen at the present time, an em bankment of semi-circular form, upwards of a quarter of a mile in length. . This was cast up at a very early day, by the Otoes, as a protection against their more warlike brothers, the Osages. From its present appearance, considering the long period it has been standing, it must have been of no small dimensions. It affords us much pleasure to record the Indian tradition of a great battle that occurred here, before these natives had entirely passed from our midst, and the tradition lost. Away back in olden tune, or to use their own expression, Theh-che-la tan-na a very long time ago, a great battle was fought between these two tribes, upon the banks of a stream, now known us tho Weeping Water. After a long and se vere contest, the Osages came o(T victo rious. This defeat so degraded the Otoes, in their own estimation, and furthermore, so embittered and dispirited were they, by the bight of so many of iheir young warriors that lay duad at their feet, that they gave vent to their feelings for a long time, in tears upon the banks of this river. Since that period, this stream has been known as the stream of tears the Weep ing Water. Feeling as disconsolate, as did the tribes of old, when they were down by the cold streams of Babylon, they summoned all the courage of which their condition would allow, and retreated north to the place mentioned. Here they cast up the embankment, which is now clearly visible, and within which, they might gather, and be 6afely ensconced from their warlike conquerors. It was not theirs, however.long to remain in quiet. The Osages, tlushed by their former suc cess, were now seen crossing the Dune and advancing towards the camp. Soon the dead and wounded were lying in all directions. As the battle waxed hotter and hotter, the welkiu resounded with the whoops and yells of the contestants. The Otoes, seeing again, nothing but de feat, bectme panic-struck. Wrought up to the highest pitch of phrensy ond des peration, they made a general stampede, and in a short lime the Osages were seen retreating 6outh, as leaves from a tree in the windy days of autumn. . They were persued across the Plalee, far into the south, where they have since remained. Here, then, in our own midst, is the ba'tle ground where the contest between the North and the South, was settled where the Otoes of the North, repelled and drove back the Osages of the South, who made aggressions upon ihein. These natives are fast disappearing from their ancient homes; this embankment, the Among these, tho Methodist Episcopa- ians ore the most numerous. They huve already fifteen Clergymen laboring in tho Territory. The appointments of the Kan sas and Nebraska Conference, io far as Nebraska is concerned, are as follows: Omaha District, J. M.

Tho old school Presbyterians rank next They have five clergyman at different points, with three church edifices in process of erection. They have none, as yet, com pleted. The Congregationalists have three or ganized societies, with pastors; and only one church edifice as yet completed, which is at Omaha, of which Rev. Mr. Gaylord, is pastor. The Catholics have on organization at St. Johns and a Triest to officiate. At Omaha they have a church edifice, but no organization. The Episcopalians have regular service at Omaha, Nebraska City and Florence, but no settled clergyman or edifice. The corner stone of one was laid, however, at Omaha, by Bishop Lee of the Iowa Dio cese, a few weeks since. At Florence, the Uaptists have an or ganization but no house of worship. At Omaha, Rev. Mr. Leach, operating I believe, under the auspices of the Mis sionary Uoord, preaches occasionally, but has no church organization. Tho Campbellites have a society and Treacher at Urownvilie; besides these I know not that there ore any others. This statement of facts, as we have been able to ascertain them, shows the compar ative strength and standing of the severa denominations in this Territory, up to this date. k CHAUCER.

What do you think of yourselves, gentlemen, when everything else ore pairing around you?

The Atlantic Telegraph Com pany. A very full meeting of the directors was held at their office yesterday. The full est investigation into the events which have led to the present pause in the underta king, into the insufficiency of the applian ces for paying out the cable, and into the additional arrangements and precautions which the valuable knowledge and experi ence gained by the late attempt will die tate in respect lo future operations, has been committed to the charge of sub-corn mittees, appointed for the purpose, to re port to the general board. The directors will sit iu permanence un til their future plans have been fully dis cussed and determined on. The appeal of the directors to the commanders of the several ships composing the Atlantic Tel eraphic squadron, to come forward and aid the undertaking at this juncture, with their advice and experience, has been cor dially responded to, and the following of ficers have arrived in town, and will be in consultation with the directors this day: Capt. Wainnght, Leopard; Capt. bands, Susquehanna; Captain Hudson, Niagara; Master Com. Noddall, Agamemnon, aud Lieut. Dayman, Cyclops. Sufficient information has already been obtained to show clearly lhat the present check to the progess of the work, however mortifying, has been the result of an acci dent, and is in no way due to any obstacle in the form of the cable, nor of any natu ral difficulty, nor of any experience that will in the future affect in the slightest de gree the entire succes of the enterprise. The only sudden declivity of any serious magnitude, from 410 falhoms to 1700 fathoms, had been safely overcome, the beautiful flexibility of the cable havinc rendered itself, without strain, to circum stances which would probably have been us ruin had it been more rigidly con structed.
