ID By order of Major-General McDowel, the
regimental officers of this District mot at Man-
hattan to-day, to elect a Brigadier General.

day to elect a Captain, the position haying been

looking officer, and has the ctal in his compo
XT k. correspondenl of the Conservative, oa
the way tofortSimth, says: "Lieutenant Hen-deraoaof-companyof
the Sixtli Kansas Cav
ity, has dose most efficient service in arresting
tHihwuekers, for they will rest from their
iNiX. llEAun ok John Baowx. We have been
toll that there is man in this neighborheod who
never heard tell of John Brown. He had heard
of Quantrellfe, though. He is a refugee from
Texas or Arkansas. He is to be excused.
Educational Lectihe. Mr. Wilcox, teacher of
the District School, gave our citizens his views
of Education and school matters. He spoke
interestingly and ably, and his views met the
vjproval of all our citizens. Mr. Wilcox will
Establish our school thoroughly and efficiently.
Good Thing. By an order of Major General
McDowell, the weekly drill of the militia has
baen dispensed with. They will hereafter meet
the first Saturday of each month. We don't
know when we felt so much relieved as when
we read that order. The weekly drill was an
intolerable bore, and was becoming a gross im
position upon the people, some ot whom had to
gofifteen and twenty miles. It is all nonsenso
to expect them to meet and drill in a country so
sparsely settled as this.
Suudex Death. Mr. Mayer, the Sutler at Fort
Riley, together with his family, came to this
city in the stage on Saturday, and stopped at
" the Chase House. Their little boy, four or five
years old, had complained of being unwell dur
ing the afternoon, but was aide to go to the table
ut supper time. During the evening he became
so much worse that Drs. Milligan and Stormont
were called. The child died at 1 a. si., Sunday
morniug. It is thought he had a congestive
chill. His remains were taken to the Fort for
interment. Topeka Record.
We regret to add tliat but a few da38 after
their arrival at the Post, another child was taken
from them. They hc the sympathy of the
community in their sad bereavement. We com
mend to them the beautiful and touching story
of" Rabbi Meir's Wifi," to be found on our first

P. Z. Taylor, W. H. Mackey, and Ed. Cobb,
were chosen Trustees, and Geo. W. Martin, Dis
trict Deputy, for the year commencing last Au
gust. The Lodge now numbers forty-eight
"No Cards." A private letter from Philos
gives us the following bit of domestic intelli
gence. Speaking of being out in the country,
he says :
" Well, I have been back about six weeks. I
have goae and done it been
and went and gone and got married, and spent
two of the most pleasant weeks in the country
that it was ever my lot to experience. Off
among the mountains where, standing at their
bates, you see the tops fading off into Heaven's
ethcrial blue, and oh the summits, look down
upon glistening waters, smiling farms, and dark
green forest trees, and see Nature's beautiful
handiwork spread out in a glorious panorama
before you. I stood on the Prospect Mount, and
aw the Valley of Wyoming, with the Susque
ffe&nna flowing peacefully through it, and gazed
OTCT the spot where the crimson tide of the vic
tims of the massacre almost equalled that of the
river along whose banks they lived. And now
I am home again with new blood in my veins,
limbs a little enlarged, muscles hardened, and
strengthened as I have not been for years.
"Would you believe that I, a printer, one of
that tribe, who, like the Wandeiing Jew, are
doomed to roam about the earth, have never been
mong such scenes before ? Except when witli
the militia lust autumu, I had never seen a
mountain higher than a Jersey sand-hill, and
even, then only in the distance. You will not
wonder therefore that I was delighted, or that
fiow I m home again, I can scarcely contain
myself within the walls of the printing office.
But-1 can't help it. Business don't bring for
tanea now-a-dys, so that a fellow can sport
around at least notour business and I have to
aftttledown into dull get-along-any-way,looking
for the sere and yellow leaf of my own autumn,
the frosts and snows of my own winter of life, to
cose aad find me still nothing but a ' typo.' It
it is plainly to be seen that I am not one of those
fellows what gets a Government contract, and if
I did I would be honest and loae oa it.
We would quote more, OBly we hava't the
"ilettar in case." Come to Kansas, Leea doa't
wear away your life in that hot-house, Pbiladel
i'phia. Come to Kansas and breathe some pure air
nothing but old age will kill you here, provi
ded' you don't get hung or shot However, a
loagjife of happiness to you !
