Av Ivdiav Rid At or.e of the stations on the
Sntr. Fe road, tiiis side of Lirned, while the
escort were stopping to feed themselves and their
horses, five Indians suddenly appeared, and
with a terrible whoop charged among the horses,
stampeding and taking off with them twenty
four head. The soldiers had traveled the road
so often without any trouble that they had
become careless, and although they saw the
Indians coming yet they were off with the horses
Iwfore they could get their guns. A few shots
were fired after the reds, but without effect. The
same party of Indians killed a negro, belonging
to a Mexican train. The Indians approached
the party, when the Mexicans raised their rifles,
and told them not to come within range. The
negro ran, and the Indians pursued and killed

HT'Last Saturday we were rushing things for
the Fourth. Our press, which we insist is the
identical one 'Ben. Franklin had, broke in two
places, and we were compelled to print about
one-third of our edition so that many of our
readers doubtless thought them printed on a
threshing machine. When raising the "forms."
after washing, to their place on the "stone," one
of them by some means slipped from our grasp
and' fell to tho floor, shaking the building!
"Great God I" we stood like a statue, and didn't
, draw a breath for five minutes. When we re
eovered our sense, we found the thing lodged
in a hole in the floor, not " pied," but terribly
jarred. We shudder yet when we think of Tbree
or four bushels of " pi."
A short time ago, a lot of stolen cattle from
Texas was sold west of here on the Santa Fe road,
and taken to Junction City. About the same
time the Indians stole some cattle on the plains.
Just afterward Strickler, of the Union, was at
Leavenworth with a drove of cattle for sale.
In the above statement, Sam. Wood lies, and
he knows it. No contraband stock has ever been
eold in this community, and we challenge him
to mention a single instance. No one in this
eounty nor on the Smoky Hill has purchased
any Btock out of the county, except George San
derson'and Jnmes Goggin, who bought a lot of
cattle and ponies at Council Grove from Sam.
Wood fc Co. That they were contraband we
Jiav-e not the least doubt, but Sanderson and
Goggin bought them in good faith, paying full
prices, and were no doubt innocent as to the
character of the stock. The insinuation that Mr.
Strickler has handled stolen cattle is as base
M hell, and could only hare found utter
ance in one perfectly destitute of all sense of
shame and every feeling of honor. Mr. Strickler
has taken three different lota of eattle from this
place lo Leavenworth, but they were work oxen
and not wild steers, and were all bought from
farmer in this vicinity. The efforts of Sam.
Wood to divert public opinion from his own
nefarious business, by charging the same upon
honorable business men, will not win in toil
aieliofe of the State.
