T- Louis Notemeyer was in the city on the inst. witk*iew potatoes raised on the CbarleyMeCarthy farm on Apple Creek. Ndt'a fe* specimens but with new potatoes for sale. v. JohnDillon has retiredfrom the Ft. Pierre stage line. John's name has been worth much to the Fort Pierre line, and it is rough to crowd him out now that difficulties are, in the main, over- come. Hollembeck has just received a large stock of goods specially adapted to the Black Hills trade, in the, line of drugs, stationery, &c. Quicksilver 41 draught," as the whisky men would say. Among tho^e in the city en route for the Black Hills, we notice Steven Goodall and A. P. Horton,^ of Ontario, who have had their attention fixed on the new eldorado for several months. Black Hillers and others should re member that Charley ^Williams, of the Gem Sample Rooms,sets out a free lunch from 9 A. M. till midnight, and with it supplies the best beer in market—cool and fresh. A party of three arrived from Austin, Minn., on Friday en route for the Black Hills. The party consists of John E. Morrison, Fred C. Bean and Capt. Mad dock. Near town they overtook a par ty of five each with loaded teams from Meeker county, Minn. on Commissary Sergt. Chas.

The editor in explaining said, there was satisfaction in the thought that it was paid for. For family use Jas. A. Emmons car ries a fine stock of California Hock, Catawba, pure Kelly Island brandy and O'Connell's finest brands of Kentucky whiskies. These goods, carefully selec ted by Homick,& Walls, Sioux City, the heavast liquor merchants in the west, are the best in the market, and are specially recommended for age and purity. The old chicken cock is still unexcelled. James Gloster, late of Nashville, Ten nessee, sucfeeeds Win. Aylmer in the manufacture ofthe celebratedTj&mirfck Star Crank-beer. Gloster is an old hand at the business, and though he has been ih town but a short time, is regarded with favor by all who know him. The Gem Sample Room, two doors above McLean & Macnider's supply store .was splendidly decorated on the Fourth. In fact it is one of the neatest and cosiest drinking halls in the city, and they do say that Charley keeps most ex cellent goods, praising his beer parti cularly. W. S. Alexander, having resigned his position as general business manager of the North Pacific Railroad, G. G. £an born, formerly general passenger agent, has been appointed by Gen. Stark to succeed him. Sanborn will make a most efficient officer. Alexander accepts a better position on the Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad. The Deadwood Pioneer was only one day behind the Black Hills 'Tribune in its publication. Its publishers had been stopping at Custer City since early in the winter, but had done nothing, and finally moved to Deadwood, starting in opposition to the Tribune. There is room, however, for both, and we wish both success. Mr. McAllister, quartermaster clerk at Fort Buford, suicided on the 29th inst., by shooting himself through the heart. He had been suffering with a disease of the bead for some time, and brooding over its possible serious effects on his mind he took his life. 0» the morning in question he had just eaten a hearty breakfast, when he retired to his room and shot himself as stated. A. W. Johnston, who left the expedi tion on the 25th, did hot know of the Indian murd&rs noted by Burnham. The story probably relates to. the three of Gibbon's command, who were killed while hunting, Johnston says Custer started with seven companies of cavalry, and after striking the trail returned and took three more. The Crow scouts said they could tajse him to the Sioux camp in three days. Johnston thinks they have bad a battle before this. I I Messrs. Robards & Cowing, of Alex andia and Perham, Minn., have deter mined to establish a branch of their extensive hardware establishment in Crook City, and Charley Robards is now intfte city'with eight teams load ed for that place. Charley will have charge of the establishment in the Hills, but P. J. goes along to look the ground over. J. R. Grant will join Kobards in a few days with eight more teams, and will take out goods for Robards with a part of them.

Plummer, of Minneapolis* ar rived on the 30th ihstl with a herd of cattle to fill the contract for beef at Fr. Lincoln for the ensuing year. Sam Whitney, who has had charge of the business for the old contractor, con tinues in charge under the new. No better man could be found for this work than Sam Whitney. Honest, industri ous and agreeable with a kind word for all, while he attends strictly to busi ness, the work is accomplished without jar. Mr. Plummer returns to Seward and from thence to Totton. He will spend the summer in buying and deliv ering stock. Messrs.

Terry at the mouth of the Big Horn with Gibbon's infantry and a detachment of cavalry, and Gen. Custer in the Rosebud region with a large force of cavalry. Custer reported that he had struck the trail of a large force of Indians, probably three thou sand, and expected to have a skirmish witn them. Tarry had mounted a de tachment of infantry for scouting on mules from the wagon train, and Ihe boys were bavins much fun at the ex pen§e of the jackass cavalry, as they term them. Six men were out hunting near Powder river when they were at tacked by Indians, and two of them killed. One ^oldier had been wounded accidentally, and these are the only casualties reported. Croeks had not communicated with Terry, but probably has ere this. Burnham and his party came from Fort Buford in forty-eight hours, running time, makingten miles an hour in a small boat.
