Wilson have opened a wagon shop and carriage
factory in the basement of Wilson's Hall. They
are finished mechanics in this line, and we are
pleased to note that their first efforts meet with
much success. We lack a grist mill of having a
complete outfit for a one-horse settlement.
O The Emporia News is wading into Law
rence rough shod doing all it can to turn South
ern trade from Lawrence to Topeka respecting
vhe University dispute. We are sorry that the
Southern portion of the State has lost every hope
of a share of the public favora : but nobody is to
blame they're main prop broke down.
A Fight with the Indians. Just as wc go to
press we hear a rumor to the effect that a part of
Stewart's company, stationed on the Republican,
has had a fight with the Pawnees, killing ten
of them and losing two of their own men. If
this is true, it will arouse the authorities to a
sense of the hostile attitude of these savages.
Retuknlu. Representative Miller, of Dickin
son, returned last Mond.iy, and is at his old post
in the Court room. He don't seem to care a
"cuss" for his dignity on the contrary, in facing
those who know him, looks as though mortified
at the fact of his having been a member of the

Tickets can be procured of H. L. Jones, at Sa

the State. Wc don't say this to puff Da Lle, but
for the benefit of any of our friends who may
happen in that neighborhood. A short time
Tjl he made several of these " Cartes dc visite"
'for us, which were so finely executed, that wc
were almost made to believe ourselves the best
looking fellow in the " biz."
UNroruLAU. Wc noticed, last Wednesday, in
Court, that in a case wherein a party was
charged with selling liquor to Indians, that all
the Good Templars on the jury were excused
from serving. This spe.iks volumes fur the G.T.'s.
They have such peculiar notions of justice, that
they will convict a man of selling whiskey on less
circumstantial eidence than they'll hang one
for murder. The GIYs are looked upon with
suspicion by these pests of society.
To the Dogs or Junction Be it known to one
and all of you, that if 3011 will let me alone I
will let 3011 alone. If you will keep out of 1113'
way. I will keep out of your way. And if you
do not want me on 3'our premises, you need not
bite me. Please only bark and show jour teeth,
and I will make mj self scarce. henyounttond
church don't soil the ladies's dresses, and don't
walk about the room, because you may disturb
Eome persons who happen to have nerves. You
can hear just as well, when you keep still.
Our friend seems to be aware of the fact that it
is useless to talk to the owners of the dogs. The
scenes in church last Sabbath and, indeed, on
all such occasions were disgraceful and dis
gusting in the extreme. If you can't keep your
dogs from thus outraging decency, kill them.
We shall protest against the House of God being
made an assignation house for brutes. But if
such be the tastes of our people, we'll have to
vnd for an artist.
If this fails to improve matters, we will try it
Another Pawnee Outbage. A short time since,
as a party, consisting of Mr. Carr, Mr. Knight,
and a gentleman from Leavenworth, were return
ing from a hunt, on the Solomon, they were
overtaken by a party of about three hundred
Pawnees. The Indians were not backward in
making known their intentions, and speedily
relieved the party of eyerything, putting them
" under arrest." They were notified that death
would be their portion in the morning, when
they would be joined by another baud. The
party were also informed.by significant gestures,
that their object was to sweep off the"settlers.
They had threehundred wolfskins, which, with
their teams, made a loss of eight hundred dollars.
This occurred about one hundred and fifty miles
west of Junction.
These outrages by the Pawnees are becoming
too common. The General Government has pur
chased this land of the Indians, and have invited
settlers to " make it blossom." Hundreds have
responded, sacrificing the ease and comforts of
civilized life for the toils and privations of the
frontier. They have spent years in building
homes, only to be plundered by these devils.
They have no business within the bounds of the
State of Kansas, and it is obligatory upon the
4 general Government to drive them off these
lands, and protect the settlers. The Pawnees
are the only ones that have given any trouble
and they have continually ; let them T exter

Court Pecceedixgs. The Third Judicial Dis
trict Court convened in this city last Monday
noon, His Honor, Judge Sawoed, presiding. An
unusually large amount of business came up for
adjudication. The attendance was large. Judge
Elmore, Mr. Hibbard and Mr. Case, -were all the
attornej-s trom abroad. The following is the
result of the criminal cases tried :
C. C. Davis, selling whiskey to Indians. Nol
Matthias Beckers, selling whiskey to Indians.
Not Guilty. Henry Brant, same offence; not
John Powers, petit larccnj-. Verdict, Guilty.
Robert McReynolds, Thomas McReynolds, and
Robert Parker ; charged with robbery; verdict,
Not Guilty. These men are arraigned, also, for
assault and battery. It appears that some money
was missed in their neighborhood, which they
charged to a fellow, and they, and others, re
solved to force him to an acknowledgment. Pro
curing a rope, they put it around his neck and
hoisted him slightly aboye the surface. The
force of attraction rendered the situation unpleas
ant, to say the least, and his face blackened. He
was thus suspended eight minutes, and but few
more would have been necessary to have effected
a change of worlds. He showed a determination
to die grit, if not iunocent He was then let
down, and a pair of cattle driven from his place,
as a further means of frightening him. Thus
arose this action. They, perhaps, carried the
joke too far ; but most any one, not cognizant of
the law, would assist in frightening a suspicious
character. It suggests a better understanding of
law among the masses, for in this case these men
thoughtlessly run the gauntlet of from ten to
twenty-one years' imprisonment in the State
PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY.
Each breeze, that brings in whispers low,
From carnage scenes on land and sea,
Our wounded, bleeding Country's woe,
This message bears, " 0, pray for me !"
The sobbing wind, that tells in sighs,
Of noble deeds, where heroes sleep,
Brings, too, our Country's anguished cries
For help, for prayers, w hile mourners weep.
The madden'd gale, that loars amain
Through treason's deadly Upas-tree,
Shrieks, "A Nation's wrong, a Nation's Pain,
Cry, Pray, 0, pray, till all arc free !"
Its richest treasures wealth has brought,
And love has given her jewels rare;
For Freedom's life, shall wc give naught?
Our hearts can they not give a prayer ?
The clear blue eye and sunny brow,
The dark-eyed boy, with noble soul,
Are only seen in pictures now
How many bells docs mcm'ry toll ?
One long, wild wail goes up to God
t rom many stricken Homes to-uay,
A.nd hearts are bowed beneath the rod
For them let ev'ry mother pray !
And grey-haired fathers give their all
llicir strong, brave sons arc sent away,
To bleed and die at Freedom's call
For them let c'ry father pray !
A sister's hand girds on the sword,
And gives an idol'd bi other's life,
To meet the base, rebellious horde,
Who've poison'd Peace with hate and strife,
For her let ev'ry sister pray ;
Let praj'crs go up, in chorus grand,
For all the brave ones fav away,
Who fight for ''home and native land."
Our Country calls for men, again ;
But swords, alone, ne'er win the daj.
The sword is w ell light, all who can !
But wc, who cannot tight, must pray. v. v.
