gravel upon our streets,and since the various
fire companies of the city have reported to

taken in reference to that matter. It will
also be the duty of tho council to confirm

some man for the position of city marshal.
Pat Kelly, a white rouster landed at
this city a day or two ago and being low
of spirit took too much spirits down to keep
his spirits up and as a consequence went
on "a little frolic with the boys" at which

John Clancy's grocery. The officer, as
sisted by three negroes calabonsed him and
alter permitting him to become duly
sober iu the jail took hint out for
trial. Justice Olmsted assessed the usual
fine against him nnd being poor in purse,
ho was remanded to jail for five days.
Yesterday afternoon, as the Comique
band was coming up Washington avenue,

became frightened, and although the rever
end gentleman made every effort to hold
him, he broke loose, dashed down Ninth
street toward Walnut and striking a post

continued his wild career alone. He was
finally caught up town some where and

ou tho part of the players, a large crowd
of rude boys and young rowdies, generally,

Au interesting bet was yesterday made
between Prof. Sample, the horse trainer.and
Capt. Hambleton of Mound City, as to
whether or not President Johnson had been
impeached. The former claimed that he
had not been impeached and the latter as
serted otherwise. Roth backed up their
belief by putting up one hundred dollars
each in the hands of Mr. Louis Herbert.
It is our belief that Mr. Johnson certainly
was impeached but not found guilty of the
charges contained in the impeachment.
The word "impeach" means, to
accuse by public authority; to chakue
with malversation in office, etc.
The constitution of the United States says,
in substance, that the house of representa
tives shall impeach or make charge
against the president when it deems such a
course necessary, out that tne senate 'snail
have the sole power to try such impeach
meuts or charges. It is matter of record
that the lower house did impeach 31 r,
Johnson, but that the senate, by a majority
of one vote, declared him inmvent of the
several counts preferred in the impeach
ment. Willi this statement of tho case we
submit the matter to those interested
Somewhat of a disturbance happeued
yesterday iu the saloon of Antonio Ilotto,
situated on Commercial avenue, near tiie
corner of Eighteenth, and this is the way it
occurred : A number ot gentlemen entered
the saloon nnd one of them, whom we will
call Air. A., called for the drinks
for the crowd. The drinks were produced
und disposed of in a quiet maimer, after
which Mr. A. offered to pay for them, but
before he could do so, a gentlemen, whom
we will call 15., stepped forward with
pocket book in hand and offered
to pay for the drinks himself. This
suited Mr. A. but tho barkeeper was, lor
some unexplained reason, not satisfied with
it and insisted that since Mr. A. had or
dered the drinks he should pay for them,
aud that he would not receive tho money
from Mr. 15. Tho ire of A. being thereby
aroused, that gentleman fell back upon his
dignity, told the barkeeper he hud not or
dored tho drinks and that if ho (the bur
keeper) said the contrary he was a liar

Squire but took an appeal to Justice Olm

and after hearing the evidence the Justice
assessed a fine against him of five dollars
and costs for each offense. This was the
most reasonable fine that could liavo been
assessed against him, but sinco he had
taken an appeal, tho costs caused it to
amount to nearly thirty dollars, Not hav

Mr. J. A. Woodson, for a number of
years nn attache of the Illinois Central
railroad here, has been out west for the
past four months, prospecting among tho
mines and mountains of Colorado. He re
turned a day or two ago and, like all other
travelers from a distant land, he has some
very interesting things to say. The coun
try being situated so much higher than
that iu which he has been accustomed to
reside, there is a decided difference in the
state of the air, which seriously affected
his lungs, causing acute pains
iu those organs and hoarseness
in the throat. These effects
he says, are only felt by pcrsouawho.se re
spiratory organs arc perfectly healthy. The
same are haviug an exactly contrary effect
upon invalids, suffering from weakness of
the lungs. But while the laud lies high,
tho thermometer is low and snow is in
some parts from five V) fifteen feet deep.
The people are mostly men whoso chief
occupation is mining, but who vary the
monotony occasionally by using their ritles,
pistols and bowie knives iu killing game,
time and Indians. Every man is armed
with two seven -shooters, a rifle, and a belt
of cartridges, and a redskin needs only to
be seen to be shot, and vice versa.
The reason of this state of
affairs is that about five thou
sand emigrant wagons, each guarded 1 y
about four men and loaded with provisions
and mining tools, are waiting and threat
ening to cross the line into the Ute reserva
tion, where rich deposits of gold are said to
be imbedded, which line is guarded by the
Indians themselves and the government
troops. But while these miners disregard
the just claim of the Indians to their reser
vation, honor among themselves, is as com
mon as is gambling. It is only necessary
to doubt a man's word in order to be com
pelled to look into the muzzle of a pop:
and it is only necessary to step inside of a
door to see the dice box aud the '"pack of
fifty-two" dexterously handled. Notes
and due-bills tire scorned, con
tracts are verbal, and enforced with
lead and steel if necessary. Some per
sons who enjoy a higher (0 state of civili
zation and who are conspicuous in churches
and camp meetings, might yet receive some
lessons in moral law by a few years resi
dence in this rough community. On the
whole, though the temperature wa3 consid
erably below what it is here, things seem
to have been too hot tor Mr. Woodson, und
