Junction,. Kansas, Dec. 12, 1863.
"06?In tlic last Council Grove Jreu, Sam.
"Wood devotes the most of Lis editorial labors
to the Junction City Uxion. As we do not feel
ourselves particularly hurt by his kind atten
tions and intentions, we shall not consume our
time and space with retorts or replies. Only
upon one topic do we deem it uecesary to pay
attention to him, and that is a forcibly feeble
effort which he makes to bring the able State
Administration of Governor Carney, and the
legislation of last winter, into disrepute, by
perverted statements of facts in regard to the
financial condition of the State. As this is a
subject of general intei est, and one on which
the people should be fully posted, we shall take
occasion to refer to it hereafter, and to give in
relation to it the facts as we understand them.
The crowded state of our columns prevents our
doing it at this time. When we get at it, wc
think we shall Le able to show that Sam. Wood's
"ventilation"' of our finances is with foul air,
and that the truth, as it is, will present Gov
ernor Carney before the people as a genuine
patriot and honest man, and not as a dealer in
false pretenses and a, practiscr of frauds, as
Sam would have us believe.

Seneca, Nemaha county, by John P. Cone.

O Lieutenant Schuarle, a Davis county sol

is now raising. He has for some time past been
Lieutenant-Colonel of an Indian Regiment.

for St. Louis, where he intends to go before the
Examining Board for applicants for positions in
colored regiments. Miller v as an old soldier in
the regular ami', and we have no doubt will
pass a good examination.
ID We arc cony to state that Sergeant B. D.
Palmer, of C company of the Ninth, whom we
noticed last summer as having been wounded in
one of Blunts engagements, La lost his right
arm. We would like to see Barney have a good
" pos'i3h " in the Invalid Corps, for his past ser
vices entitle him to it.

The Smoky Kill Route. The Lcacnworth
Bulletin, commenting upon an item from bur
paper, says: " Wc have often urged the advan
tages of thi3 route upon the attention of our
people, but urging basso far been in vain. It is
-Unquestionably the most feasible route to the
great new mining region of the West, as well as
the best and most saving in the no trifling mat
ten; ol lime and money. One hundred miles is a
great consideration to emigrants, and could the
proper ranches be established, we are certain that
it would become the route. With our cotompo
rary, we again ask Leavenworth to bestir her
self." War ox the Dokgs A war of extenuation is
being -waged on the canine species of thi3 neigh
borhood. Their general meanness lead them
into the sheep killing business, and hence we
have " blood for blood." Sheriff Callen lost
about thirty head by them, when he began to
shoot. Several paid the penalty in this way;
whereupon somebody, through revenge we sup
pose, laid out some " pizen," which somebody
else's dorg got, and thus another fellow got mad
nnd laid out some more strychnine, which only
had the effect of severing the tie that bound some
other fellow to a chunk of dorg flesh and thus
the good work went on for several days. There
wasn't a good dog killed, nor is there one to be
killed, and we hope every man in the country
inay get a little spiteful and go to killing dogs.
We sympathize with Mr. Callen, but what is his
loss, is the community's gain.
r o m- w
J Wanted. We want a set of new post-masters
between this place and Leavenworth, or else two
or three agents to watch those we have got. Wc
always receive two days' mail on Saturday, but
last Saturdaj' we received no paper mail at all.
Jt was detained at the Manhattan post office
intil Wednesday night. Saturday's mail con
nects with several weekly mails at this place
and Fort Riley, and hence two-thirds of our
' S . -.1 .1 !
settlers had to go a weeK wiuiout uieir man.
The carelessness of these officials is intolerable,
and calls for remedy. About one-third of the
mail that comes to this offiee belongs to Potta
vratlomie county. We frequently have packages
of our papers, after wandering around three or
four weeks, come back to this office ; and if the
Leavenworth dailies knew how some of their
-packages travelled around they would not
wonderat their subscribers complaining. There
is not one of them that will stop any thing that
ougEt riot to go by them. The patience of this
part of the country is about worn out.

Provbs Marshal, is engaged pretty extensively
.at the'jresent.time in the clothing business,
