"jLat week we broke loose from our ,rt)irenitm. nnd, in company with three ocial, jovial fellows of this place, started tor Nebraska Cry. We wound our wy Jwind the stylish residence of L. 11 Kin Jiey, on the outskirts of B;llevue. end struck on to the Territorial Road built ly GtA. Siiea ; crossed over hit new bridge jbrt thfl iTappto, v hich, by the way, " in a bridge as it n bridge," we soon found our "fkU'a in i Larimer City, u place nrt alto gether unknown in the history of Surpy .County. . , , Larimer City lion on on even plateau, about one and a half miles from uV Mia ouri rier. close on the north bank of the iMntte river, it has an abundance of build trtsf material adjoining the site: limber, rock., sand, and nil the essential for build Itfg it"" right smart" liitlo town. We crossed the Platte river at this point by the pi d of Brother Levi Kin. tail, nud landed safe in Can County. Speaking pf Perries we can tafely say to those wishing t cross the Pintle, Unit this Ferry jias safe and reliable as any Misuuri Ferry. '''.- It v .- We hauled up for dinner at Queen's Hottl, Plattsmoulh. Here we expected to find i.iaiiy signs of hard times' by thu dullness of business, and the usual grum bling of . business men ;' but we found the reverse. The improvements going on in pinny parts o! 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 OStual prosperity pf plattsmoulh. Having rested our nags a id fully satisfied the in Per sian at Queen's well-spread table, we broke put for Nebraska City. I. ,i ... .. About five miles out from' rinitsmottih die nicety undulating' mid slightly rolling praifi$ nnd the thick margin of timber on tho.'Missouri, tirew forth voluntary ap plause.frou. lljnse of. pur .crowd wlw had i?ver lefoVe traveled south of tne Hit tie. About ten utiles brought -us !) a large ' n.l'tit Llv timbprnd trrnv. with B Bin.";'! ' ' stream running thro' it, situated about six rjfuhjs west of the Missouri. Here we found an . old I friend, Hon. Ruck, ft lieiuber of the second Legislature, from Cass Couuty, living in a large, aud com noJau new dwelling-1 Mr. Ruck has a premium farm, and appearance indicate hls.tasia.au4 enterprise as a practical far mer. But on inquiry we found ha had the food forrtrae to be born in the Em pire State (our native State, as most en terprising'. jaeu were.) which in a great hfrjff Iccoitqtsfor the milk, io Jn cocoa out. We 'proceeded from this point towards Nebraska Cityoud three miles out from Mr. Duckl we encountered the Weeping Wtter a stream much like our Pappiliun and about the same size, but why it was given the mournful cognomen of " Weep ing Wuter," we cannot jell, for we are inclined to tho opinion that a more clear, pure, beautiful, merry liule stream dos not run in fsebrasUa. We had to ford thb ire'a,"i. the water being about 4 feet deep, anJ about sii inches of the same as found, rushing into our carriage and complacently drenching our clean linen and Mora clothes we bad in a carpet-sack, id case of a dance or a parade. Once on the lop of the banks' of the Weeping Water.'aud on the broad prairie, the rib bons were drawn tightly over Kitty and the.Silver'Grey, and we went charging along' the' lii, reaching Nebraska C ty about five in the evening At we de scended1 the hill north of the City, we were struok with the reflection that les than four years ago we approached the c:ty on the same road, three small frame bui dings, a few claim cabins and a si by nine old block house, was then all of the now Star City of the South Platte. Now, -you , behold it magnificent brick blocks.,, its large brick churches, with spires pointed heaven-ward, it long busi ness streets crowd d with live ineu.teains, carriages and emigrant wagons. In fact Nebraska City is i place of no smalt pre- tensions; besides her growing greatness, slje jt5 enjyeI. since it was bid out for. a Ciiy. which has already produced as tonishment, she lias now the re-shipping of the U. S. -supplies,' and an army of workmen, teottt&ters, oversee ra sud lubor ors that go with the trains across the, plains. Here, too, lire many distinguish ef .indiriduat. such Fpenker Decker, Judge . Bradford, Hons. M. S. Reeves, CanijleU. IWe, anl eiexatoea we r -nj oUh.i in ihe.Ouu'ia 1 Nelruskian Hon. John V. Kinney, formerly Cbii-f Justice of I'tah Territory, the cluqui'ia Ilolley, S. F. Nuckols. the iuonid king of South rime, aUo the eccentric J. S. Morton, v.'-.- ; We called upon Mr. Reynolds of the .Vrui and found him on the square and flourithiug like a Green Hay horse. On our departure from said city we drove to the handuome residence of Hon. J. 8. Morion. After taking sharp aud pier cing glance at the bottom of a glasi from Morton's ide Wird, 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, cial black, five years old, and estimated at $1,000 cocs in a bar npSS)ei, ihnn three minutesiind for beiuty and i nrriage, we never w hU superior. Morton is evidently proud of Pete, as ho well m.iy be, for the hor.-e will do his master's bidding in mot every intelligent mnneuver exc"t we do not remember lo have lieu r J him tpeak a single word. As we were about to Hart we noticed a Finnll fpwimen of the cinine hpecics which we admired, and on proper pre sentation by raid Morton of this young " Dorg" according to law and cii-tom, we seized aid aniinul and Mowed him away under the carriiij t seat, making a iuu-ic box of the same until we arrived nt PliiUsmnuth again. Here we found our friendi, true to the promise they hud mail us on nor downward trip, hail gath ered up the ril bons, silk", and crinoline for a social dance, which if we ar any judtfe, was properly had at the Tlatte Valley 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 duncV, and the house was redolent with life, wit, and beamy, and all persons, things and considera ions were enveloped in the Tvrptichorean art, " Anil when music rose wilh its voluptuous awoll. .. .. : Soft eyes looked love to tyts that spolts ss well." Strength and manhood were led will ing rnplive. cliaim-d to the chariot of beauty, whilst iis wheel revolved to the xhilarating ttraius of mu.-io. the bright liirhts shone resplendent upon the assem bled pride,f PlaiUiuoulh- .. . Th next day we found our way to this place aZ') ' J,,e 'k,ni1 baptizing the. dorg with an f Uphold""' name, m which the world will be advued time. il- The Affempfed Assassinators of Louis Xnpoleon Uulllotiued. Oruu and Pierri, who attempted to assassinate Louis NuHleon, were guillo tined on the morning of the 13ih , of March, iu the presence of a vast con course of people and 6,000 troops. . De Kudiu's punishment was commuted into penal servitude for life, and it was repor ted that he was to be sent lo London to give evidence against Dr. Bernard, who hud been fully committed for trial. The feeling nmuife.ud by the spectators is thus described by an eye-wimess : Such bad been t.ie aiarm of the Gov eminent that an entire division was had Out, under the personal command of a general ollicer, who assisted at the exe cution. Fifteen thousand soldiers were ready to act on the slightest signal, and every i-u and outlet was guarded as in limes of ii.s irreeli.in. In my estimation. between 00.000 and 100.000 men of the Fubourgs, workmen in blouses, were as sembled in the spaces and iu the streets near the Place de la U pjeiie ; but they were so grouped by the way iu which the troop werv siut kjii' d, that lh y co Id see iuile or nothing N ben the lea.!,dutl sound of the falling of the knife upon Orsiui was heard, it was responded to hy an imme'io but smothered reply of ' Vivt la Rtjjublique.' I cannot pr-'p-rly des cribe th s ; it wus like a gigantic mutter ; it was not a cry or a ahyu, but it sounded like the breath rr the sigh of thousands i f human beings. 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 io make them plunge aud kick, shook their arms, and contrived thai the popular whisper shoold be stilled without b iug literally put down. But the words Kit - Rtvubliqu must . have been clearly autiibTe to every one. ) purposely went home on foot, threading my way slowly inrongn tne croups wuererer t iuu . ...i i faiind them thickest.

The Abbe Hugoii, cl spltu f the K xpietli and the chupliii of the Concierger e, were prrs ent. 1 do not profess to give particulars of what passed within the walls ot the cell, but 1 may observe that the wretched men appeared calm when lh news, which could not have taken tliem by surprise, wss announced to them. 1 am assured that they heard mass and received the communion with ret-pe. t, if not devotion. Soon after they were taken to the ro jni called dt la tuiltlte, for (he cliange of dres. It is not laige. O.i tin; present occasion it contained, besides the ihapliu and the governor of the pri on, about 30 persons, the principle among whom were the grellief, or clerk, representing the Court of Assize and the buissier.ur usher, who was charged with reiulm thu sen tence on the sculToUi. The remainder Were apparently police agents When t! v convicts enti red the. thambrtdt it toil' e!lt ihev wero tilacvd at ilill'crent extrem ities of it, with their lacks turned to each other. There were two ui.Maul execu tioners one from Itouen, ih; other Itoin Caen besides him from Pari. I hose lost no lime in preparing the coi.victs for the scatiolil. During Hie Orvndful opera lion Orsiui rrmaiui'd calm, ihhI tln)u,'tihe whs not so loud ur contradictory as during hi trial, Pierii Was some wl.ut ex iled, The si rail waaL-t Coal interfered wuh his gesticulations, but he hardly crastd speak- iug for a inoiiieni. W lien tue execution- ers wo pinioning him he a.iked that the fa.-letiings i u l not be drawn to i tight, as he bad no intention of est aping. The co!d touch of the steel on his neck, when Me scissors cut of his hair sous not to in- terfere with the guillotine, for an in taut appeared U) thrill him through; but here- covered himself when he found that his beard remained untouched. He thanked the executioner for lulling him die with hi face as became a man. When the hood, lo which the vail which covers the features of the parricide is suspended, was put over his head, he is said to have laughed, and attempted a joke about the figure he must cut. ' At this moment he turned his head aud perceived Orsiui ; lie saluted him gaily, and asked how he was getting on. He was interupted by Orsmi who wa hiu. sell undergoing the sauiu operation with the same tavgfroU as if he were under the bauds of u vul. tdie-s- iug for n J any, with the words, 1J.- calm, le c.lm, (my frii-nd.", Pit-rri's tongue ran on, ho.vever The usi.uiul proceed- t d to strip him of his shoes, for in pursitj. ance with th aentenc they wete lo pro- ceed to the scull old Ian footed. The tin appeared lo hesitate, bui Pierri encouug- ed him to pro-.eed, aud assisted him as much as he could, still talking. The op- eration being ovr. uikI liie toilette com- plete. he turned toward the turnkey and asked to be allowed to unbrace him. This request was complied with. The ,-uent of moving now came, and the Abbe Hug?.M "ten oui, " courage : " u : . .- I mil i. frn'wl " I .... n.ifi- J : ni nut uiram, ne ca id, " we are going to Cut,.,", 8nJ m a sort of feverish excilt inent he repr.ii.'?d to him elf.

Orsiui was, mi the oiher Aa;.'d, as calm and tranquil, as hi fellow-convict was ex cited, lie spoke little, but when tin; gov- emor of the prison ami some of the otticer approached him he Ude them in a low tonn of voice farewell The turnkey of ex cution, is by a London Timtt t ' Hi sen aimounceu to turn iu n tune ot re- serve, if not the nusttnty, which di tin gret that his last moment was come, guished his political associations", and this Orsmi thanVed bun for his sympathy, II: . i r k; I. .r,..BUu1.n.,l,uuUi,1 hnl ho underwent the onernlMii iviihnut flinching.

The Abbe Hugon eiitreated Pierri to prohi by the few moments siill left lo collect hi I thought and assume a calmer attitude. He pr--.iied to be.ctjiii, but said he should chant a patriotic hymn; and it is said he actually began t siu thej well known Mourir pour . Puttie." Lean in; on the Abbe Hugoii ho in wnied the lifletu steps of the scaffold, still repeating' the versus of lhe song. Orsiui was supported by the chaplin of the C inciergerie. and hi calmness never abandoned him for., uomeni. When he a ppeared on the platform it could be seen from the movement of his body and of his head, though coven d with a veil, that he ... . . was I'kJking out tor tne cmwa. ano proia- bly intended addressing them. But they were too far off. The greftier then di- reeled the usher to read the sentence of lhe Court condemning the prisoners to lhe death of i arricides. The uher, who was an old man. oyer 60, was evidently much moved at having to perform this duty, aud he trembled as much from emotion as from cold as he read the documeut. which no on" listen, d to.
