fPteiss and ffakfltatan YANJKTON, DAKOTA. Monday Evening, July 2, 1877 The Weather To-Day. Washington, July 2.—Indications for lower Missouri and upper Mississippi vallejt lower pressure, stationary or higher temperature, variable winds mostly from the south. Partly cloudy weather and rain areas. LOCAL LACONICS. Special meeting of the hook and ladder comijany to-night. Hurrah for the 4th of July and the fire men's ball. Tickets $1. Indian goods are arriving, and Col. Akin expects to have a boat load this week. A boatman was left by the ferry boat last night and swam the river from Nebraska to Dakota. The 4th of July cannon is to be fired by the veteran artillerest, Geogre Pike. He collected money for the ammunition last week, and ie prepared to make the gun talk loudly. Swarms of 'hoppers were flying over yes terday in a northwesterly direction, and to day there are rather too many to make life in the west 8«em pleasant. Last nieht's storm brought down a few northwest of town. A heavy storm cloud passed north of us yesterday afternoon, which looked as though it contained wind and hail. Yank ton got a moderate drenching from the edge ef the storm, but the worst of it evi dently went around us. Adam Forepaugh's circus and menagerie will exhibit in Yankton on the 3d of Au gust. His advertising car, which is an ele gant speciaasn^f mechanical work, will ar rive here the first of next week oyer the Dakota Southern road. A mail was received from Deadwood Sat urday night, via Pierre, which was five days old—the quickest mail time made be tween the Hills and Yankton over any route. Yet the department closes the route because it takes too long to transport mails over it! It is a mighty thin excuse No mail was sent out this morning on the up river route. The Northwestern Stage Company has failed, and the new contract does not begin until the 16th inst Meantime, Postmaster Howard will do his best to supply the upper country with mail but be sees no way to employ regular ser vice. The stage firm of Whetmore, Marsh & Co., of Omaha, has secured the contract for carrying the mails between Yankton and Ft. Randall, and the terms of their contract require them to begin on the 16th inst, Mr. Marsh, who was in town last week, ex pressed a willingness to put on service im mediately provided he could secure a rea sonable guarantee that the government would pay the company for the work. But as he has not done it, we presume he was uot willing to take the risk. A man named Charles Potts, of Sac county, Iewa, who came down on the ferry boat Dr. Burleigh from the Hills, is in bad fix. At the second battle of Jackson Miss,, he was struck in the leg by a canister shot, inflicting a wound which was not considered serious at the time. Since he has been in the Hills the leg has swollen badly, and gives indications not very fiat tering to the patient. He was taken to the Jeneks hotel, where he is being attended by Dr. Miller. He was a soldier in the 20th Illinois regiment, 15th army corps, during the war. The epenlng of Charlie's Parlors on Saturday night was an event which brought a large and respectable attendance of peo ple. The audience was strictly masculine, of course, because Charlie's Parlors" is a saloon- The name, however, indicates its character, as at is a parlor so far as rich adornments entitle apartments to the name Three rooms make up the establishment, all handsomely furnished and richly car peted. The bar and fixtures are of massive black walnut, backed by three large plate mirrors, set in black walnut frames. The 3 proprietors, Messrs. Baxter & Houts, have secured the services of Mr. West, profes iional compounder of beverages, from the «ast. Saturday night's opening was a sue cessful inauguration of the business of this new establishment. A stranger by the name of W. T. Hughes A is lying at the Smithsonian hotel seriously ill with mountain fever and is unable give any account of himself. He is deliri *1 ous at times and is unable to speak. lie J", was asked to write bis name upon a pitce of paper aud state where his friends coulu be found, but all that could be obtained from bim was"W. T. Hughes, Liverpool, Q. C. N, S." The meaning of the initials he could not explain, being probably in so feeble a mental condition that he failed to comprehend what was wanted ot him. Mr. Hughes is direct from the Black Hills and came to Yankton on the steamer Black Hills last week. He is being provided by the county authorites, as he seems be destitute. Any information concernii^ his relatives or his place of residence nun be sent to the Smithsonian hotel. ,, 04&WfStti Grand Hall., 5 TUOSK ACCRETIONS rBIMONAL.

Woolsey left for below this morning, but will return to Yankton. He is strong ly inclined to locate here, and he would be a valuable accession to our population. Hon. C. M. Willard, member of con gress from Vermont, and his son, A. R. Willard, have taken rooms at the Jeneks hotel for tbe summer. The former is in poor health and as he feels much better since his arrival here has concluded to live with Mr. Jeneks this summer. sT* ewfh. TIIE RIVE It.

Sioux City will cclebrate the 4th with a dancing jubilee in a big tent. The shake down was begun Saturday night, and will be kept up until Thursday morning. Sioux City flatters itself that this affair, with Its horse races on Wednesday, will do justice to the occasion. Sioux City Journal: During the severe storm which visited the southern portion of Woodbury and the northern portion of I'l-H HILLS Ill KDhltEltS. Guv. Pfciiulujjton Swedes jumped one of his lots, he ordered them off peremptorily, and their not com plying, he prevailed upon Blair and May to drive the Swedes off". They ordered oil the two Swedes, who refused to go. Then Biair commenced beating one of them over the head with a pistol, and fiually shot him dead. The trial of May and Blair came on, they were arraigned under an indictment of the grand jury for manslaughter, convicted and sentenced as aboved stated. Now comes a petition, signed by the grand jurors who in dicted the men, the petit jurors who con victed them, the sheriff of tbe county, two of the commissioners and numerous other officials and business men of Lawrence county. The petition asks that, after all these legal investigations have taken place, the men be pardoned for the crime of kill ing a human being. It is shown that at the time of the homicide May and Blair would have been mobbed by the people of Dead wood, but for the immediate prospcct of tlio establishment of a court for the trial of offenders. For this reason the people desisted and let the law take its course. The prisoners had a fair trial and have gone to their punishment. Governor Penning ton declines mo^t decidedly to pardon the convicted men, as he feels convinced that they deserve punishment and that the pie cedent of a pardon would operate against the interests of justice in the Hills. The people of the Hills have gat the law they were so clamorous for and they must stand by its workings. Monona counties last Saturday, one feature*"^Ice cream and strawberries, and ice cold of which Is supposed to have been a living in this county, had one horse drowned in Poverty hollow, and Mr. Kennedy, living live miles below, |arUdcs in Monona county, had two drowned in Howe creek.

The circumstances of the c»se, as near as we can get at them, arc as follows: Two Swedes had jumped a town lot is South Deadwood belonging to a man named Chapman, who had so many lots that he was not able to comply (or at least had failed to comply) with the law, requiring a certain amount of improvements to be put on them to make his title good.
