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

We 'proceeded from this point towards

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

plains. Here, too, lire many distinguish

Justice of I'tah Territory, the cluqui'ia

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,

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

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

The following account of the behavior
of the convicts co the morning ef

' - -
" Preil tly at 0 o'clock Orsiui and Pierri
were awoke from llu-ir sleep by lb.-! gov
ernor of the pri on, who announced that
their lest hour was come. 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'

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

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,

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

and tranquil, as hi fellow-convict was ex

should chant a patriotic hymn; and it is
said he actually began t siu thej well
known Mourir pour . Puttie." Lean

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

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
