JUJNIVY M. 11UUT. Nsws and Lot il fcdltur. dcLlcvue. n. t. 11 'THURSDAY. APRIL 23.1958. 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 ley, on the outskirts of B;llerua. nnd struck on to the Territorial Road buili by l. Site ; cromd over his new bridge yft the Tapplo, v hich, ly the way, is a bridge as i a bridge," we soon found our. jivlves in Larimer City, u place not alto gether unknown iu the history of Sarpy jCouiity.. . Lkrimcr City lie on an even plaieou, lout one und a half miles from ih Mis ouri river, c lose on the north bank of the iMatte fiver, it lnu an abundance of build trig niaterml uiljoining the site : limber, tock, sauJ, and all tho essentials for build Inj'a"" right smart" liule town. We crossed this Platte river at this point by thg "id of Brother Levi Kimlall, nnd landed safe in Cass County. Spending ft Ferries n'e can safely sny to those wishing to cross the "Platte, thnt thii Kerry Js at safe aud reliable as any Missouri . 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.. 'About five miles out from rinttsmouth fhe tncely undulating nnd slightly rolling prairie1 and the' thick margin of timber on tho. Missouri, drew forth voluntary np. plause froii. thpse of. pur,crinvd who had P l,ver before traveled south of tlie ritittef About ten wile brought ,uj ! a large at&kkly timbered, grove, with a Bin."!)! stream running tbro it, situated about six iftjjs4 wet of the Missouri. Here we 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 mer. But on inquiry we found ho had the -good f ixttme to be born in the Tin pjrst State (our native State, as most eu terprUing linen were.) which in a great dr xt)Cintl,for the milk, jq thtj cocoa nut. ' "We proceeded from this point towards Nebraska Cityt oud three miles out from Mr. Buck we eucountered the Weeping Yater a stream much like our Pappiliou and about tha saaie size, but why it was given the mournful cognomen of " Weep ing Water," w cannot (ell, for wr are inctmed to the opinion lhat a more clear, pyre, f beautiful, merry liule stream does not ran in Nebraska. We had to ford the stream, the water being about 4 feet dorp, and about six inches of the same ai f -yai . rushing into our carriage and cfcmplucently drenching our clean linen and store c'-nlies we had in a carpet-sack, id case of a dance' or a parade. Once on the top of the banks" of the Weeping Water ,'aud on the broad prairie, the rib bous were drawn tightly over Kitty and the,Silver (Jrey, and we went charging along the Un. reaching Nebraska C ty i . s - . a ououi nve in me evening as we ue- sceuded the hill north of the City, we were struoK wun the reueuon mat less than four yeara ago we approached the c:ty on the same road, three small frame bui dings, a few claim cabins and i f hy O'ne old block house, was then al of the now Star City of the South Platte. Nov -you , behold its magnificent brick blocks, its large brick churches, with spires pointed heaven-ward, iu long busi ness streets crowd d with live inen.tcams carnages and emigrant wagons. In fact Nebraska City is i place of no smalt pre tenons ; besides her growing greatness, 'bplwijtfnjoyeil since ' it was. ti a City, which has already prod tonishment, she has now the re-sh of the U. S- supplies, and an 'army of tynrkmeo, teaatolers, orerseersand labor ors tbat go with the trains across tha plains. Here, too, lire many distinguish eiodividuals, such as Speaker Decker, Judge Bradford, Hons. M. S. Reeves, CwiipLrU, Hale, aai oihwameo we r-J about in the. Omaha ; Nohruskiau- Hon. John Y. Kinney, formerly Chief Justice of L'lah Territory, the eloquent Holier, S. F. Nuckols. the inoui. d king of South Pintle, also the eccentric J. S. Morton. : 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, " Pete," we think he called him. Pete is a stallion. cut black, five years old, and estimated at $1,000 1 coes in a bar nous len than threo minutes and for betuly and carriage, we never w his superior. Morion is evidently proud of Pete, as ho well m.iy be, for the liore will do his master's bidding in mo,t every intelligent maneuver except we do not remember lo have heurJ him speak a single word. 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, things and considera ions were enveloped iu the Terpsichore n art, " And when music rose with its voluptuous swoll, . Soft eyes looked lovs to tyts that spokt as well."' ' Strength and manhood were led will ing captives, chained to, the chariot of beauty, whilst its wheel revolved to the xhilnrating strains of inuMC the bright lights shone resplendent upon the assem bled pride,f PlatUmoulh. The, next day we found our way to this place a.?,! ' ' "r,l baptizing lite. rfor with on fuphoui"!1" name, of all which the world will be advised .Y! u ttme. The Attempted Assassinators of Louis Xnpoleon Oulllof lued. Orui-and Pierri, who attempted lo assassinate Louis Napoleon, were guillo tined on tho morning of tha 13th - of March, iu the presence of a vast, con course of people and fi.OOO troops. I3e Rudio's punishment was commuted into penal servitude for life, and it was repor ted thai he was to be sent to London to give evidence against Dr. Bernard, who had been fully committed for trial. The feeling mauife.-ud by the spectators is thua described by an eye-wimess: " Such hud been lite alarm of the Gov ernment that nn entire division was hud p.t, under the personal command of a general olhVer, who asiottd hi the exe cution.

It was well appreci ated by the authorities, for, on the instant, the soldiers raised the mot disorderly clatter imaginable, struck their hores, so as to make them plunge aud kick, shook their arms, and contrived thai the popular whisper should be Milled without U iug literally put down.
