CT" C company, of the Twelfth Kansas (in
fantry), arriyed at Fort Riley Thursday, to relieve
I company of the Ninth. C company, of the
Ninth, will probably remain it the Fort
Specie. A party of Indians were in town the
other day trading. They "swapped'" gold for
everything they purchased. They don't read
the papers, and consequently gave a dollar for
one hundred cents.
0"We have positive assurances that Robert

O"0ur unfortunate editorial brother, Geoege

Tow.Nsmr Elfctiov. The voters of Davis
County will heed the proclamation of Sheriff
Callen, and assemble at their respective voting
precincts next Monday, the 23d inst. Township
officers are to be chosen. The voters of Clay
county will also attend, in accordance with a
law passed last winter.
IU Sec Kurtz's advertisement. He has a full
stock, at liberal prices, and is one of the best and
most reliable business men in Manhattan. He
j doing a straightforward, honest business, and
those who de.il with him need have no fears of
being deceived. Those going from this section
to mill at Manhattan should give him n call.
He takes all Westt.ru Kansas " shinplasters" at
!Tj" On Tuesday evening, March 9th, the house
of J. L. Winfield, on Humboldt, was entered by
some twelve or fourteen men, and "cleaned out."
A small portion of household furniture was de
stroyed, and two horses ran off. It is said the
part' were soldiers from Fort Riley. Winfield
has always been a notorious, out-spoken seces
sionist, for which reason we have no sympathy
to express. Thus far, a man who has been true
to his country has been saved such visitations
when a bold, out-spoken loyalist is served in
this way, then we'll howl, and not till then. We
understand Mr. Winfield has received notice to
quit the country within ten da3's. He has re
covered his horses.
A Reliable CcnREscr. We are pleased to see
that our shin-plaster dealers are sparing no pains
or expense to relieve the wants of the community
in relation to small change. We have this week
to notice that the currency of our friend, Lewis
Kurtz, of Manhattan, has been made legitimate,
and its circulation accordingly extended. Mr.
Kurtz has tiken out a banker's license under the
Internal Revenue law, and made arrangements
for the redemption of his bills at Leavenworth.
Our ettlers, who do business at Leavenworth,
will hus be relieved-of the inconvenience arising
from the non-circulation of these notes at a dis-.,tnce-
We now have two houses in Western
Kansas issuing shinplasters under authority,
which are enough to supply the demand. Set
tlers can therefore take the bills of Kurtz, of
Manhattan, and Streeter &. Strickler, of Junction,
as a reliable currency.

Our Salt Rtgioss. Captain Stewart, Com
mandant of Fort Riley, has lately been up the
Republican. He writes as follows to the Con
servative as his observations in the salt region.
He says the half has not been told," and con
tinues: "My duty as commander of troops led me re
cently about seventy five miles up the Republican
j T , nsas "ver. where mv attention was
called to-a-salt marsh, where some few men were
producing a very good article of salt, and that in
abundance, though with verv inferior apparatus.
The ground for a great extent was literally white
with salt, though it cannot be gathered without
considerable dirt, but the process adopted is very
simple and easy. It is scraped together, dirt and
all. The salt is then dissolved in water and the
dirt allowed to settle at the bottom, when the
water is poured off and boiled down.
" While resting my command a few hours, Ve
tried the experiment of boiling in a common
soldier's camp kettle, and I herewith send yon a
sample of the salt thus produced, which I think
is very goou, considering uie kkiuc uiq oeen
used a long time for boiling coffee, and other
things. The only drawback to the work is the
proximity of the'Pawnee Indians, whose hand
is against any man's. But we hope to be able
-.ooa to remove this impediment, when afield
will be open for the accumulation of vast for
tunes, and a great saving to the State."
The editor of the Conservative says the salt
tent them bv the Captain is of an excellent quality.
