Kansas Boys for Vicksburg. The Sixth,
Tenth, and Eleventh Kansas Regiments have
broken up camp at Salem, Missouri, and are now
on the 'march for St. Louis and Grant's army.
They carry with them a prestige that but few
soldiers enjoy, and will but increase their honors.
Mobe Hanging. Two men were lately hung
,t Highland, for horse-stealing. We earnestly
hope this good work may soon be finished, for
we have fears it may harden the hearts of the
people. It is most effectual, however there has
been no horse-stealing in this neighborhood
since the hanging of Branch apd Dickson at
Manhattan last fall.
'DT Senators Clark and Maxson, Commission

essentia requirements of a rich and populous

.the lie to the assertion that there is no " wood,

The News. We learn from aresidentof Mor
ris county that at the head of Clarke's Creek, in
.that county, they had the news of the commence
ment of the fight at Vicksburg in the Smoky
Hll Ukiox three days before it appeared in the
Council Grove Press. The people of that county
should take the Union, and they will be pronapt
ly posted. We live on that great natural
thoroughfare, the Kaw and Smoky Hill Vallies,
and consequently are always ahead. Don't won

" A Long vRidr A man was in town the other
.day, -who had just finished a remarkable hunt
after stray mules.. On ihet South Platte, about
the'first of May, he had fifty-sir head'of mules
stampeded. He started in pursuit, and tracking
them to the Republican, there 7 found some of
them. He then struck across to ine neaa 01 tuo
Solomon, thence down.that stream to the Smoky
Hill; wh'erdh found quite a'number more. He
then went over or Humboldt, where he found
rnother group. He had never, been in the coun--'try
before, found all but three or four of his
-joules, and traveled five hundred miles, -
, Three Cheers for Reed's Boys Piety and
Patriotism. These two noble traits of character,
it may be said, blend in one. But a conflict
arises when anything spurious assimilates to
one or-other of them. This -was demonstrated
the other day. A squad of Captain Reed's men
were sent up to Marysville last week in search of
a horse-thief. A camp meeting, held under the
auspices of. the Southern Methodists, was in
progress, and the salvation of souls earnestly
sought. Being of a'Teligious turn of mind, the
boys attended upon the ministrations of the
Word, and aided in, the devotions of the hour.
But on this particular occasion the two qualties
"blended inharmoniously." A prayer was made
to the throne of grace for every imaginable thing
except the President of the United States and the
Union armies. This was a slight that the boys
could not overlook their piety and patriotism
blended so thoroughly that when one was out
raged the other was also. Accordingly, they
stepped up to the pulpit, and requested the min
ister to repeat that praper, and to invoke partic
ularly the divine blessing upon the President
and the Union soldiers. He flatly refused to do
it. Whereupon the boysgavehim his choice
to do as requested, or accompany them to Fort
Riley. Suffice it to say, he made an " eloquent
and patriotic" prayer. After the exhibition of
such a spirit we doubt whether the boys enjoyed
m m m m
O" We had the pleasure last week of making
the acquaintance of Mr. John C. Dunn, who is
connected with" a large freighting company,
recently formed in Santa Fe. He 'is on his way
to Leavenworth from Santa Fe, and came in by
the Smoky Hill Route. He has had a large ex
perience in freighting, and has frequently trav
eled over the old Santa Fe road, and pronounces
the new road the best for the freighters between
Leavenworth and Santa Fe by all means ; being
better supplied with grass, water, and fuel, and
nearer by many miles. He believes that the
cheapest and most expeditious way for Leaven
worth to secure the immense trade of New Mex
ico is by attracting it by way of the Smoky Hill
River. Those Interested should improve its
already many superior advantages over other
roads by bridging its streams with free bridges,
grading its road bed, and adding to it all other
additions which art may suggest. The citizens
along this route from Salina to Leavenworth are
interested in brineins this great trade and travel
over it, and all should lend a hand .to the work.
Every man would be benefitted by it in a per
ceptible degree. The thousands of men and
animals engaged in this enormous transportation
across the plains leave an amount of money in
their way which can scarcely bo estimated. The
supplies which they would demand make a mar
ket for all the produce raised along the road.
As so natural a course of things, in so long a
travel, more or less of their stock would be con
stantly giving out, which would have to be
replaced by fresh animals, and these OLr tanners
would be called upon to supply. And in a hun
dred ways would our people receive a benefit
from this travel if they secure it. Ihis they can
do. All that is needed is action, energetic ac
tion, that looks forward only to the consumation
of the work. Let every man take hold and add
his mite towards its accomplishment.
