Bat after all, perkep the Eaglt and Enqui

to bankers ; inasmuch as it was once the mis
fortune of one of its editors to be a partner
with certain bankers, whote management of

Foxr Sjush, Abk., June 23, 1857.
Sir: The contract offered very recently for
transporting the U. S. Mall from some point oa
the Mississippi liter to the city of San Francis
en, by four-Dorse post coaches, suitable for the
accommodation of passengers, hss doubtless
been let to tome competent party or company,
and from the representations made in a recent
communication signed by Messrs. Butterfield,
Fargo and others, it is hoped by many in this
community, that they have proved the success
ful bidders ; as the news set forth in their com
munication to the Postmaster General, and
published in the Missouri Republican, must ac
cord well with the interest and sentiments of
the bulk of population of the middle and most
of the Southern States particularly Missouri
and other contiguous States lying East, that
will have the immediate benefit of a termina
tion at St. Louis, Mo. ; and no less of Arkan
sas, Tennessee and ether States, lying East and
Southeast7 of these, which are to derive an im
mediate benefit from the terminous at Memphis,
of the branch route, diverging from the main
route at Albuquerque, inlfew Mexico.
To insure a permanent settlement of the lo
cality of this route, 3n this proposed divergent
line, will it not be necessary for the people
aloBg the line from Fort Smith, through the
State of Arkansas, by the way of Little Rock
and other prominent points to Memphis, in
Tennessee, to make public all the facilities this
portion of the line may be capable of affording
the contractors, whenever the work may be
commenced for placing and regulatirg the pro
posed "ten-mile" stands through this Stele?
Few would doubt, however, the ability or the
disposition on the part of our people, to render
every aid necessary to a successful prosecution
of this enterprise within and throughout the
limits of the State of Arkansas, and 1 am per
suaded that facilities, if not equal to ours, can
be found through the Indian country, on either
side of the Arkansas river ; a more definite and
reliable account of which Is promised in a forth
coming communication, atter further inquiry
shall have been made to the remotest Western
settlements bordering on the plains.

Sad ArrAia A Man Killed! We are
pained to record a painful shooting affair which
came off in this place on Saturaay afternoon
last, about 6 o'clock, at Mr. Jas. W. Boyd's
Saloon. Mr. Samuel W. EIrod, of this city, a
young gentleman who was respected by all who
knew him, and a young gentleman, Mr. Robert
Breckenridge, formerly of Chicago, Illinois,
but who has been a citizen ot this city for the
last twelve months or more, and by the by was
also much respected, are the names of the un
fortunate victims. We have heard many re
ports about the affair, and consequently we
forbear giving to our readers all we have Deard
about it. A friend informs us that Mr. Breec
enridge was standing in the saloon talking to
some one, (we learn that there bad been some
confusion in the house before the shooting came
off) exhibiting a spear which be had drawn
out of his cane, when about that time Mr. EI
rod stepped into the house. Our information
is that EIrod, when be bad got near Brecken
ridge, asked him if he drew the spear to stick
him Mr. B replied that he did not ; infor
mant says that Elrodasked Breckinridge again
the same question, B. replying in the negative,
saying also, that he was as good a man. or
words sinilar,as him, EIrod. whereupon Eiroi
drew a pistol and fired, the ball taking effect
on the left aide of the face, near the nose, pass
ing through his head. Bret kenridge fell and
only survived 15 or 50 minutes.
It is to be reeretted, but it cannot be helped.

about tbe murder of Lyle, but this was kept

going on, but wnicn was greatly procrastinated
in consequence of the number of witnestes ex
amined and to be examined. It was supposed
that the case would not be closed before the end
of tbe present week, and then, if the accused

Judge .Lynch would be called in to do his office;
and then the Black Republicans were just as
resolutely determined to protect their comrade
from the mob at all hazards. They think they
have the majority in Leavenworth City, and are
bold in the avowal of their Intention to protect
But tbe country may as well prepare itself
for a new convulsion, in the resistance to be
offered by the Black Republicans to any at
tempt to collect the taxes levied for tbe support
of the Territorial Government, under tbe law of

publicans make no concealment of their inten
tion to resist the payment of any tax whatever.

work together. Gor. Walker will then be
placed In a position which compels him to exe

sworn be would do; or b will bare to cave in,
and acknowledge bis incapacity for tbe govern

A Shoceimq Catastrophe. The wind
seems to be blowing catastrophes. A letter from
uiien, or juay gives a narrowing account of
the terrible accident that has occurred in tbe
tunnel now being excavated in the Haunstein
mountain, near Bale, on a Swiss railway. It
seems that a forge had been established in the
interior of the tunnel, under a shaft lined with
wood, and supported by beams ef the same In
flammable matter that served as a chimney.
On the 18th this wood-work caught fire, setting
fire -also to a great quantity of coal that had
been brought m for feeding the forge. The
sides of tbe shaft fell in almost immediately,
thus closingall possibility of escape to the fifty
three laborers at work in the interior of tbe
mountain, tbe mass of burning coal about the
forge rendering it equally impossible for them
to reach the mouth of the tunnel. The whole
country-side was at once (on tbe spot; water
was thrown in; everything that could be done
was attempted with all tbe zeal called forth bv

sistance the heavy burdens entailed by that sad
"Tbe first blow of sorrow was tbe sickness
of bis youngest child. She was seized with
diarrboa, wbieii, from neglect and the want of
proper remedies to cheek it when it first made
its appearance, bad become chronic, and the
fine, hearty, chubby, square built, rcsy-faced
child of six years, had wasted away to a peak
ed faced skeleton. The father's hopes in tbe
life ef the child were lost, and, to increase his
Borrows, a second was seized with the same
complaint ; and that too began to waste'away.
Tbe medicines obtained from tbe doctor, who
lived twenty-five miles distant, were worthless,
and both children were in a dying condition.
A third was seized with a fever and ague, and
became so weakened as to be helpless. A
fourth fell a victim to typhus fever, and every
hour the parents expected to be obliged to per
form the sad office of burying their own rhil-
- Ul&L- A fifth, a strong lad of sixteen, while
JTUUnr JVnre Im
ally cut a severe gash ia his jrg.FThe wound
uw, Bm w .,(,
ck brothers and
eisters. A sixth, a young man of twer-ty-one,
was seized with a severe attack of billions
cholir. The seventh had almost fotfeited bis
life, throueh bis own carelessness, bv the dis.
charge of bis gun, that accidentally went off
wnue ills Hand rested on tne mouLQ of the bar
rel. His band was shattered to a jelly. The
father tbe poor, distressed father on discov
ering tbe last sad accident, was so terror strict
en.asto become paralyzed. Tbs poor, heart-
wounded wife and faithful mother bore up like
a woman, bat she, too, was stricken down with
grter and care,
' In this sad sMoatioa I found this suffering
family eoculohed ia misery. With a praver
to God to help me in relieving then from their
misery, I commenced the work of applying the
means of cure. To tbe children afflicted with
tbe diarrhea, I gave ten drops ot Radway's
Ready Relief, every fifteen minutes, and told
the mo her to give (hem thickened milk as a
diet- The fever and ague I treated success
fully by giving large doses of tbe Ready Re
lief every fifteen minutes, and rubbing tbe ex
tremities of tbe body until a glow of heat was
obtained. The typhus fever yielded to the
treatment of tbe Relief aad Regulators, and
tbe wound ia the young man's leg healed by
applying tbe Relief.
" Every one of the family were restored to
perfect health in six days' time, by the use of
these remedies. The great fault of these
people was In not providing themselves with
these remedies. Had Radway's Ready Re
lief Deeen nsed, and a dose or two ol tne ileg
ulators takea, on the first appearance of either
of these complaints, not six boars sickness
would have followed their use. So with th:
accident of the axe and gun-shot wounds. The
Heady Relief, applied after the shot were taken
out, healed tbe wotmdandaHayed inflammation.
I never in ray life witnessed such joy and glad
ness sucb thaLkfulness, as in the family of
" I write tor. to you, that you may warn all
emigrants seeking new hemes in tbe West,
to provide themselves with Radway's Remedies.
" G. A. C.
"Traveling Minister of M. E. C.
Tbe abofe letter endorses our frequent
warnings through Ibe press, of tbe importance
of persons emigrating to new countries sup
plying themselves with these remedies. With
Radway's Relief and Regulators, you are safe
against all diseases ; and it you meet wHh ac
cidents, either by falls or injuries if no bones
ere broken Radway's Ready Relief and a few
doses ot Regulators, will save you from seri
ous barm. There is bo disease known to man
but that these remedies will remove- Theyare
It is absolute recklessness ra the part of
those emigrating to new countries, who neglect
to secure a sdpply of these remedies. All
emigrants suffer more or less by chaage of
water. A fewdropsVif the Ready Relief in the
water will give yon a pleasant and healthy
beverage. With Radway's Relief and Regu
lators, you need not fear cholera, yellow fever,
fever-ague, typhus fever, small pox, or any
The public vriil please bear in mind, that
the R. R. R. Remedies consist of Radway's
Ready Relief, Renovating Resolvent and Reg
The Ready Relief is tbe most remarkable and
miraculous remedy fer tbe instant relief of all
afflicted with any pains ever discovered. In a
few moments it will soothe the most terrible and
excrntlatiog paroxysms of pain, cramps, and
-spasms. No matter what the pain may arise
from, .this marvelous remedy will, in a few
moments, give ease and comfort to tbe af
flicted. Radway's Resolvent Is for the cure of scrof
ula, humors, nodes, sones of all kinds, syphilis,
bronchitis, and all diseases that have become
established in the system, whether inherited by
hereditary descent, or inoculated by impru
dence or exposure. It is in cases where phy
sicians have failed, and other medicines will
do no good, where Radway's Renovating Re
solvent proves its superior efficacy. In simple
maladies, each as er-ptton of tbe skin, pus
tules, tetters, rash ring worm, saltrbeum, and
diseases arising from impure blood, it will cure
in a few days, and all chronic diseases it is
sure to cure in a short time.
Radway's ReguZators are In the form of
pills, and are an improvement on all other pills
in use. It there were not qualities in Rad
way's Regulators superior (o all other pills, it
would be folly fer us to introduce them. There
are many excellent pills in the market, but
there are none that possess Such wonderful cu
rative powers, developing new medicinal prin
ciples like Rldway's Itegulators. If you desire
a purge take one or two of Radway'sRfgula
tors, by their use the weak become'strpog
the tick healthy and those who take thin are
