IIcAvr lMKnsLMET Tliat which the "Demo
eratic Union soldiers" of Western Kansas gave
the " Frontier" last veek.
O" Captain Clark's company of cavalry, sta
tioned r.t Fort Riley, was paid off yesterday.
Captain Graham's company will be served like
wise in a few davB.
0T Hall, of the City Drug Store, has placed us
under obligations for a Copy of the beautiful
Specimen Rook of Wells' Cincinnati Type Foun
der'. See Hall's advertisement.
Qj Farmers should preserve this number of
our paper, because of the article on our first page
relative to thcxnilture-of Sorghum. We hope the
author will favor ift again his pen is too inter
esting and instructive to la' idle.
UTS' Soldiers are running the machine now,
and a go-slow motion no longer characterizes
military movements. Person's who have heieto-
fore shown the least secession sympathy had j
better say their prayers.
SiHNTi.ASTi.ns. Colonel Wilson, Sutler at Fort
Pviley, has in circulation one dollar notes, re
deemable in current funds when presented in
sums of five dollars. The Ecareity of change
makes them quite a convenience.
RrcnuiTS Corporal Rlnckheart, of Lieutenant
Heddins' " stair," returned to this city lat Sat
urday, bringing with him four recruits. This
makes nine recruits which the Lieutenant has
raised during his short stay among us, with the
assistance of his soldierly ' staff," Messrs. Holli
dav and Rlackheait.
O j Dumnicr has about abandoned the idea of
fissoiling the stock of " pi" he has on hand, and
issuing a paper. He is going to " wait till times
get better." In the meantime we understand he
intends rusticating among the1" Injuns," where
j-crhaj s his doctrines will be more apj reciated. '
Ar.ruzsTi p. A "gentleman" came to this city
last week with a pitceoftatlierdil.ipid.ited horse
flesh, which he disposed of to our friend, Henry
Sprong, for a small sum. The gentleman is now
in durance ile, said horse-fiesh having been
j-iwhawked in Washington county. Sprung
acknowledges the "goak," but has no desire to
BIT The Department of Western Kansas is now
."fully organized. Headquarters at Fort Riley and
Junction City, the extensive business of the
Department rendering double the necessities and
conveniences of the Department of the Potomac
necessary. The " Major-General Commanding"
is yet unknown to the public, but is generally
believed that the duty of designating a proper
personage for the pol has been the subject of
great wrangling and dissension in the Cabinet
at Washington. We sincerely hope that the
subject will not end in a "smash Up" of the
Cabinet. There nre several military fellows at
Fort Riley capable of running the " machine"
in Davis" county, at least.
Tun McirriXG. The meeting was a humbug,
ns all Democratic meetings nre. The Democracy
in attempting to make the people indorse the
Frontier as a loyal paper, went beyond the prov
ince of the meeting, and ran the thing in the
ground. A series of resolutions were offered by
a fragment of a Committee, which for dryness
excelled anything we have ever been bored with.
These resolutions indorsed the paper as loyal.
.Another set was introduced, which merely de
nounced the act, and set forth the duties of pa
triots, to which none could object. The original
resolutions, indorsing the paper, were adopted b
a vote of 27 to 25. We have not been handed
copies of them.
No Mail. No mail was received j-csterdny,
at this point, consequently we are unable to laj
before our readers the full particulars of the late
Federal victory in the South-west, and other
items of interest. There is a screw loose some
where ; let it be hunted up and remedied'. Yes
tcrday, instead of the Eastern mail, with its
usual amount of good, bad and indifferent news
for all, there came a mail from Manhattan that
had been sent from this office nearly a week ago.
This 5 enough to upset the patience of Uie most
Job-like personage, and cause to swear in wrath
the meekest follower of the Lamb. It must be
that the Manhattan Postmaster is a partaker of
eod-corx, for surely no sober man would commit
fo egregious a blunder. Where is our mail agent,
Thomas ? His services arc needed in this di
rection. TJThc "Frontier" press is an interesting pile
of old iron. It is past all further service in the
extremely doubtful cause in which it was en
gaged no longer will its doleful cries of " abo
lition !" aunpy patriot cars no longer have the
traitorous element of Davis county a press through
"which to hurl their villainous missiles in the face
of our bleeding country. It can no longer be
characterized, as the poet would,
. ' That mightiest of the mighty means,
On which the arm of progress leans."
This quotation is not by uny means appropos,
for after considerable reflection we have came to
the conclusion that the poet never intended the
above should include the Frontier, and such like.
Besides being battered up in a manner to render
.iff r useless, the elbows of the press re carried off.
i It was the best press we think we have seen
in the State, nevertheless, high authority has it,
Th way of the transgressor is hard."
An Adjustment. " The Smoky Hill and Re
publican Union," published at Junction City,
takes us to task for an item that npjpeared in our
paper upwards of a month ago, which stated that
that paper .E'ad been discontinued and another
paper, a traitorous concern, called the " Kansas
Frontier," Tia'd been established upon its ruins.
We now apologize to our friends of the " Repub
lican Union" lor the wrong winch the said par
agraph did Uiem, and will also explain how the
event happened. The item appeared during our
absence to Topeka, and was penned by a friend
whom we left in charge of our paper. In look
ing over our list oY exchanges he came across
a copy of t'ae " Frontier." the first he had seen
of that p'aner, and as the Union'" fconiea of
which he had previously seen) wa not to be
found "on ou't tablelie surmised that the latter
had been merged into the former; taking it for
granted that so small a town as Junction City
eould not have two papers published in it, and
thereupon he made the paragraph alluded to.
We ought to have corrected the statement upon
our return, but we neglected to do so through
carelessness. We nre "pleased to note that the
Union" is still alive and doing effective service
for the cause of LibertV and Union,
Will the "Union" please tell its neishbor
" Frontier" that the person who called it a
secession sheet, by a simple perusal of one copy,
is an old-line Democrat ? Neosho Valley Reg.
We had fears that the mistake alluded to was
the result of a brain muddled by "sod corn,"
and although we "would not make Such an as
sertion positively, yet we trembled for the repu
tation of the editorial fraternity. The above
explanation is satisfactory in this respect, and
sets at naught another suspicious circumstance
often hurled at our reputation for sobriety. And
now the " Register" will please accept our apol
og' for having intimated the possibility of
such a thing. By the way, neighbor, where did
you get your idea of Junction ? A town that
can spcrt tix whisky shops, three printers whose
toothache, sore toes, and other complaints, never
require a " horn," fctit vn the contrary attend
regularly upon the ministration of the word, and
who may also be seen in Sabbath-schooltea'ching
young ideas how to shoot heavenward, witli
other correspondingly astonishing "institutions," :
is some town. We here atone-, Tn these days,
see a printing office " gutted" twice in one week, J
several rows, and the beat organized police
force in the Suite overawed, owing to the extent
of our population, and consebiiently the propor
tion of "roughs."
Promoted. At the election held by the Man
hattan Kitlcs, March 1st, William Allen, First
Lieutenant ; Joseph Carney Second Lieutenant ;
and Chatlcs Allen First Sergeant. These boys
formerly belonged to Company 13, Second Kan
sas, and have seen "actual" service. They were
always prompt in the execution of their duties
as soldier, as wc can testify. We are pleased
to see their soldierly qualities appreciated by
their fellow-citizens of Manhattan.

made a speech in the Hall of the House at

ljc We notice that the State stocks of
Tennessee have risen seventeen per cent,
in the seven or eight days past, and Mis
souri stocks have had a similar rise. TJiis
will be the case with the State bonds of
nearly all the rebel states as incy nre
brought back into the Union. From present
indications it is apparent that not only in
New York, but also in all commercial and
business circles, the return of peace will
inaugurate the greatest excitement in trade
ever known on this continent.

in a conversation with the President, Mr.

failed in detecting any such itnitntioh, and
wc now believe that the whole story is ah
invention of the parties who promulgated
it. Either the police have been humbug

Let the correction go round. There is not,

It is also staled in dispatches from Wash

given .ample proof that he combines all the
qualities "necessary for a faithful) energetic
