The red devils of the prairie have broke loose
again. We have no time to give particulars,
only stating that they attacked a train, killed
ten men, wounded five, And robbed theSutler

hundred militia passed through this place last
Monday on their way after them.
If our help-mate does not get back in time to
give a full sheet next week, we promise a more
readable half sheet than this.
As Lvdian Advesture. Mr. Carr, an old set
tler on the Solomon, arrived in Salina about
midnight of Friday of last week, hatless and
ehoeless, and completely exhausted. He had
traveled eighty miles, being out four days with
out a bite to eat, and his feet were swollen terri
bly. His story, as we heard it, is as follows :
He had been out buffalo huntingwith a man
named Cobert. During the day Cobert started
for an old camping place, where they had left
some'powder and a shot-pouch. Carr told him
that he had seen signs of-Indians. and begged
him not to go. Cobert insisted on going. Dur
ing the afternoon, Carr heard three shots and
some Indian yelling. He was satisfied that thev
had killed Cobert. The next morning, as Carr
had finished loading his rifle, after cleaning it,
he looked up and saw about thirty Indians
a few hundred yards off, coming towards him.
When the Indians discovered that he saw them,
they gave a whoop and spread out, with the
intention of surrounding him. Carr turned and
run, leaping down an embankment, some ten or
fifteen feet, into a creek. He followed up stream
until he found refuge under a log. The Indians
occupied a few hours in passing and repassing
him, when, concluding he wasn't there, they
truck back from the creet into the buehes.
Carr came out from bis hiding-place, and moved
further up the stream, where he hid himself
among the bushes. After a short time, he ven
tured oct, when he suddenly came upon an In
dian. Before the Indian observed him, Carr
raised his rifle and fired, which brought the
Indian from his horse. The ahot aroused the
pursuers, who, in tfceir-search- of the brush,
almost stepped on the object of their prey. Carr
waanot in the least releived by the discovery
that he had nothing to reload -with. Tha red
kiss gave np the chase, and Carr started for the

The New Postal Arrangement.
By the new post office law, which went
into effeot on the 1st of July, Leavenworth
ranks with the first grade, and her Post
Master will receive the same ealary as he
of Baltimore and Philadelphia, New York
being the only exceptionary. The new
regulation comprises only four grades. The
fee and perquisite system is entirely abol
ished, each Post Master having a stated
salary, and the Government defraying all
the expenses of clerk hire, rent, fuel, &c.
The money order system is like to prove
the most popular and valuable of any postal
reform for a long period. It entirely ob
viates the necessity of transmitting money
or drafts by mail, and thus insures the
parties interested against the possibility of
loss. If A of Leavenworth wishes to send
B of Boston 810 or 10,000, he will de
posit the Bame with the Post Master here
and receive a government certificate of the
amount, while the former notifies the Bos
ton Post Master to pay the 'said B the
amount stated, upon application, and charge
the same to the National Bank of Leaven
worth. The reports being forwarded to
Washington quarterly, the accounts are
there settled. It is in flfect an arrange
ment by which the Government becomes in
every instance responsible for the safe de
livery of all funds entrusted to its charge,
and thus insures the publio against the
losses eo inseparable from the former regu

The Inevitable Resort of the Preseat Campaign.
FridayyJuly 15,--1864. j
The date of my letter is suggestive. It
remiuds me most vividly of the excitement
and exhilaration in whictfl 'participated on
the 15th of June just four weeks ago to
night when those marvelously strong
works in front of Petersburg were wrenched
from tHe rebels, and seized by the" Union
army with a determined and unrelenting
grip, which must in time strangle the re
bellion, or, at least, make the evacuation of
Richmond a necessity. These are not idle
words. The people, always steadfast in
their hope of ultimate success, yet always
impatient of delay, may shake their heads
incredulously, and call this the view of an
optimist. Let them do this, but it is a fact
nevertheless. Gen, Grant believes it. So
do his subordinate Generals. So must
every thinking man in the army and out of
it. Consider n moment. How can Rich
mond be tenable without supplies for Lee's
army i Iheso supplies aro not m tho city.
There are not provisions enough in the
rebel capital to feed the troops on half
rations for two weeks. Such is a well
advised estimate. Now, whence is subsis
tence to be obtained? Our cavalry, by
destroying the railroads south of Richmond
have cither completely shut off the sources
of supply, or have so seriously interrupted
them, that Lee finds himself in a desperate
strait. They now stand ready again to
swoop down upon these roads like a hawk
upon its quarry. All that is required now
is to keep tho cavalry branch of the service
in an effective condition, and starvation.
grim, gaunt and unrelenting, will do the
rest. Is it not clear then that the army in
its present lines and limits, bold? the
coigne of vantago? The rebels must suc
cumb under its vice like grip. They feel
this. They struggle now liko a dying man
whose throat is clutched and whose arms
are pinioned by a superior power, but whose
limbs, are jet free to strike and writhe a
little time before his strength is finally
exhausted. We must expect hard knocks
and painful bruises so -Jong as these strug
gling limbs continue their convulsive death
throes, but there is not sufficient vital force
remaining to do us permanent injury. And
the long agony would doubtless bavo been
over now if Gen. Hunter's column had been
strong enough to have held the lodgment

From Atlanta Death of McFherson.
The Tribune's Washington special of the
24th, says Government has received dis
patches from Sherman, announcing that on
Friday tho rebels, under General Hood,
massed a heavy force against his left wing
consisting of McPherson grand division,
composed of Logan's and Blair's corps, and
made a desperate attack, gaining a tempo
rary advantage: After terrific fighting, in
which a number of charges were made, they
were repulsed with much slaughter, and
driven back into their fortifications. Major
General McPherson during the battle be
came separated from his staff and was killed
by sharpshooters After McPherson's death
Logan assumed cemmand of his "division.
Later dispatches say our forces had ob
tained possession of the elevated ground on
the northeast of the town, and that Beige
guns had" been mounted which command
the place ; also that the rebels were burning
their stores, preparatory to a retrograde
movement. Every body is confident that
