JUNCTION, SATURDAY, FEB. 7, 1863.
ID A fine sheet of snow covers the earth, and
Ihe prospect of having ice next summer is bright
, We are under obligations to Mr. James
Stbeeteb for Inte Memphis papers.
tW We have entirely neglected this week the
School Decision of Attorney-General Octhbu.
It will appear next week.
9S? The attention of our School authorities
is called to the article on our first page about
, The mails arc very irregular. We sup
pose the Stage Company never would give us
a mail if there happened to be ice in the river
just at the paiticular time they wanted to
cross. There is no excuse for having the mail
lie at Fort Riley three daj-s.
O0ur Topeka correspondent, "Nix," is
warming up. iiis letters are interesting summa
ries of the more important events transpiring at
the Capital. The mails have thus far interfered
with them not fe-males with the writer. We
are anxious that this should be understood on
our corps reportoral we prefer the steady bachelor
to the sentimental swain.
ID" Representative Milleb has introduced a
resolution memorializing the Federal Govern
ment to improve the road leading through this
place from Fort Leavenworth to Fort Lamed
Representative Gordon has introduced a bill
detaching Ottowa and Saline from Davis, and
attaching Ottowa to Saline forjudicial purposes.
That's good Davis has been burthened long
0"As the spring trade will soon open, those
in want of supplies should look around among
those who offer inducements to trade. We would
commend to all who contemplate visiting Leav
enworth for the purpose of trade, Sam. Cochrane,
corner of Shawnee and Third streets. Those
having dealings with hini speak highly of him,
vhich prompts us to recommend him to those in
want of groceries, tc. See advertisement.
TTWe have received from a somewhat indi
rect, but which we deem a reliable source, infor
mation of the death of James S. Hoxt, a native
of New York, and an old resident of this placa.
lie was an aid ts General Phil. Kearney, and
laid down his life with that lamented General
at the battle near Chantilly, last September. He
was a man who needed but to be known to be
loved, and his many friends in this vicinity will
mourn his loss with true sincerity.
HIT Among the overlooked heroes of the Kan
fins Second, Captain John Gardner, of E com
pany, stands out the most prominent as a brave
man and true soldier. Private letters which we
receive from the Regiment, speak in the highest
terms of his gallantrj and daring. At the battle
of Cane Hill, when the Second was ordered to
fall back, the Captain remained in the rear and
brought off his wounded, at great personal risk.
Less deserving ones have figured extensively in
the newspapers. Our Junction bojs are fortu
nate in possessing such officers as Gardner and
A Strevk or Litk. A oldicr at Fort Riley,
belonging to C Company, last Wednesday,
while loitering along the riier bank, just in
the rear of the stables, observed a little box hid
away in the bank. lie secured the box, and
upon opening it found it to contain three littlo
bag". An inspection of the bags brought be
fore his bewildered vision something near
Five Hundred Dollars in twenty dollar gold
pieces! Of course, the whole thing is wrapt in
mystery. "Who knms but that some modern
Kmn lias made this his rendezvous, and that
that cliff is teeming with pots full of gold and
treasure ? Suppose you dig it away, boys, and
remember that wc want a heavy per cent, for
the suggestion. This recalls to our minds the
murder of a woman at the Fort some four or
five years ago for her money. Who knows but
that is part of the bloody instigator? Another
euch circumstance occurring, and we'll engage
Bg,Thc sentiment of the following lines is
touching and beautiful; the diction quite fair.
Would'st thou wear a robe of spotless whiteness,
In the world beyond the tomb ?
Would'st thou have a crown of dazzling bright
ness, "When thou leav'st this vale of gloom ?
Go bind the broken-hearted.
With 6ilken cords of love ;
Call back their peace, departed,
And anchor hope, above.
Go, hush the groans of anguish.
Wrung out dj -wild Despair ;
Go where the weary languish,
And talk of Jesus there.
Go, lead thy erring brother
From paths of sin and strife ;
Go, teach thy wond'ring sister
A truer, nobler life.
Go, twine with fresh, white roses,
The pale, sad brow of Care ;
Go, ere Life's morning closes,
With hope, and faith, and prayer, v.v.
The Clifton Bask Swindle. Many of our
citirens doubtless remember, that while Gen.
Mitchell's Brigade was stationed at Fort
Riley last summer, this neighborhood was
flooded with, three dollar bills on the Clifton
Bank of Canada. Those who were so unfortu
nate as get one of them could not get them off
again ; but no one thought they were the -victims,
in common with many others, of a gigan
tic swindled It appears that two men named
Chadwick and Saxds, were engaged in palm
ing off upon the soldiers these worthless shin
plasters the Bank having no existence. The
swindlers were brought to justice in New
York City sometime last falL The New York
Police Gazette says of it : "This was probably
one of the most gigantic swindles ever set
jfloat; but to the credit of Mr. Chadwic be it'
said, it was effrontery without hypocrisy, fraud
without a blush, crime without an attempt at
concealment Robbery perched on a pinnacle,
with his fingers at his nose, laughing, at hood
winked Justice."' -
Ooctdest Lodge, I. 0. G. T. This organiza
tion is gradually revolutionizing society in
this city dispensing with " refinement," and
taking up the more substantial and heaven
born notions of sobriety and decency. The
success attending its efforts at reform are far
beyond the expectations of its most sanguine
friends. It has been in existence about six
weeks, and we predict, judging the future by
the past, for it a long life of usefulness, having
families regarding it as their protector, young
men deeming it their saviour and possessing
a green spot in the memories of all these down
to their last days. Its officers for the quarter
commencing February 1st are as follows :
