Fourth Regiment K. S. M. At the regimental
orcanization of the Militia of Davis, Clay,
Dickinson and Saline counties, Capt. John T.
Price was elected Colonel, Capt. Wm. Gordon,
late of the Sixth Kansas, Lieutenant Colonel,
and Lieut. Wm. S. Blakely, Major. All have
een service, and the two first have had much
experience in drill and discipline, and we may
expect that the Fourth will be one of the most
effective regiments in the Kansas Militia.

We were shocked when we read the above
announcement. Wax. was one of our most es
teemed and intimate companions. He was a son
of the Rer. D. X. Junkin, D. D., one of the most
distinguished divines in the Old-school Presby
terian Church. He was a young man of good
talents, highly improved by culture. He was a
mature scholar, for one of his years, especially
in mathematics. Kind, cheerful, witty, generous,
self-sacrificing, and honorable, be was beloved
by all. Last April, being an adept in Naval
accounts, he was appointed to a clerkship in the
fourth Auditor's office, Washington, but desirous
of rendering more active and dangerous service
to bis country, he declined it and sought and
obtained a post in the Navy, lees lucrative but
more active and exposed. He has fallen an
early victim, with no mother near to smooth his
brow, no father to cheer him as he entered the
dark valley. But hia spirit is among the re
deemed. Special Order No. 1.

Junction Cut, October 23d, 1863.
MnsBss. Editors-! am not in the habit of
troubling the press or public with my private
matters, and for thiB, the first offence of the kind,
must ask a small space in your paper, and the
public indulgence, until I can expose the rascal
ity of one D. W. Scott, Wagon and Forage Mas
ter, and late Acting Quartermaster at Fort Riley.
I presume it is well known to the most of this
community that I was sued by him in a justices'
court, and the summons was served upon me
just as I was leaving Fort Riley to move my
family to St Joseph, Mo., for the sum of $9,
which he alleged the account was for pine
lumber, gutta percba hose, lead pipe, tc. The
trial was set for September 20th, only nine days
after the service, at-which time he supposed it
would be impossible for me to be present, and
expected to take "snap "judgment But on the
day of trial he came forward and dismissed the
suit at his own cost minus some $20 officers'
and lawyers' fees.. His reason for doing so will
appear obvious, as the sequel will show; and
strange a man professing to have been educated
at the West Point Military Academy should not
have made the discovery before bringing suit
The articles in the account I acknowledge to
have received, and the amount charged is cer
tainly much less than I expected to pay.. One
hundred and fifty dollars would be considered
very cheap ; and that amount I will willingly
credit on his note of one thousand dollars, which
I hold, provided he will liquidate the balance,
and pay over the one hundred and fifty dollars
to his successor. Captain J. R. McClure, he
having acknowledged to h is lawyer, Mr.Hibbard,
on the day of trial, that it was Government pro
perty. The articles were borrowed the summer
of 1861, to be returned when called for. No
demand was ever made upon me for the return
of them until after Captain McClure relieved
Captain Graham, the latter having relieved Cap
tain Scott, some two 0 three weeks previously.
Only a short time prior to this, however, he and
myself had a personal difficulty at LeaTenworth
City. The insult offered by me there was re
garded by him sufficient to demand an apology,
as he left saying " that I should hear from him,"
and I expected, as a matter of course, to be
challenged or horse-whipped. Much to my
relief, however, (for I was terribly frightened!)
he never alluded to the subject until during his
trial, some two months subsequent, when he
gave as a reason for not resenting my insult,
" that he did not consider me a gentleman for
delining, some four years previous, to accept a
challenge from Fred. Emery" with which cir
cumstance you are doubtless familiar, and the
result of which I am perfectly satisfied with.
I now request that he publish the proceedings
of his trial, a copy of which was furnished him,
and which the publio are entitled to, and then
determine whether or not he is entitled to the
appellation of gentleman. There are many other
matters connected with his transactions at Riley
that I should be pleased to lay before the public,
but shall let this suffice for the present
Ex-Sutler Fort Riley. .
