report. The Kansas Second is to be dis

plan 16 companies of Infantry, 3 of cav

of the Junction boys will join' the new

and perhaps some others, old soldiers now,
having passed through the Missouri cam- j
paign, and fought at Springfield, will re
enlist, while the majority of our boys will
return home, and spend tbe winter in re
cruiting their health, and so arranging their
business as to allow of a long absence when
spring comes, providing rebellion is not
crushed before then. For those who now

HAVING CARRIED ON TIIE BUSINESS
for several years in BOSTON, and having
had many yoars' experience in Carriage man
ufacturies and discing shops and also a large
experience on breaking plows, would announce
to the surrounding country that he is now
tuny prepared to do all kinds of work, such as
HORSE-SHOEING, IRONING WAGONS

on the shortest posiblc notice.
All work warranted, aud done on the most
reasonable terms. Produce taken as payment.
In icw of the uncertainty of horse-flesh,
and also of the fact that Injuns and Seces
sionists abound in our midst, it would be
useless for rr e to urge upon the settlers the
importance of having their old shot-guns and
muskets, &c made "bran new." I therefore
announce that particular attention will be paid
to the repairing of all manner of FIRE-ARMS.

jcansas, and that one of the party, (from ;
iliis vicinity,) being belated, engaged a
conveyance near the Fort, and a driver, to
overhaul the precious load, that they might
all journey together. Will the Dcmoctatie

facts in the matter, if in his possession?

thority, that the rebel General 3ains ha
declared his intention of quartering at Fort

charge is correct. The circumstances at
tending the surrender all go to prove that
tho whole affair was a miserable trick.
Major Lines Ind been instructed to destroy
the Fort and everything which would afford
the least benefit to the traitors, but instead
thereof he refused to allow a thing to be
destroyed. The soldiers were anxious to
burn the tents, but Major Linos would not
permit of it. A large quantity of revolvers,
ready loaded, were secreted in a sandbank

Council Grove, (now, wc believe, in Ar
kansas,) informed a citizen of this county
that tbe rebels in Missouri are thoroughly
informed of the chorography of this part of
Kausas, and could and would carry out
their plan of occupying this Fort. 1 he re
port:hns considerable plausibility, and we
warn our loyal people to be vigilant. Lnt
tho treacherous knaves who are engaged
in the fiendish employment of betraying us
into the power of our enemies, be ferreted
scut several companies a mile or so from
the Fort, and then run up tho white flag.
If these charges are proven, Major Lines
surely deserves a traitor's doom.
