The father of Samuel Merrill, of this city, New turnips as large around as a pint cup, are among the luxuries which Dakota soil has already furnished our people. The present is splendid weather, and field and garden crops never looked better at this wason of the year, or promised a more abundant yield. We are requested to announce that Billy Marble, an entertainment character of con siderable note, will be in Yankton the 4th, 5th and 6th of July. The indications of the weather for the upper Mississippi and lower Missouri val leys are rising barometer, cooler north winds, clear or clearing weather. A large number of ladies and gentlemen of this city went to Tabor this morning to witness the ceremony of confirmation in the Catholic church at that plaee to-day. Remember that Biahop Ireland will de liyer his lecture at the Catholic Church this evening.

Ferrello, the Italian Ole Bull, announces one concert in Yankton on Sat urday evening of this week at the court house. Signor Ferrello has the reputation of a master of the violin and his perform ances have brought him the highest enco miums during the many years of his mimi cal career. The Webster City, Iowa, Argus says of on* of his performances: Sig. A. Ferrello, the Italian Ole Bull, gave a concert in Wilton's hall last Thurs day evening, and was greeted by a good house, who eqjoyed the musical feast veiy much, if we can judge from the laughter which filled the hall from time to time. It was worth the admission fee to hear him render the "Arkansas Traveler," carrying out the dialogue in the various voices almost to perfection. His performance upon stringed instruments is tnily wonderful. He can draw sweeter notes from one string of his violin than most musicians can from all. Ole gave a concert in this town sixteen years ago. A lively team in charge of Dr. Van Vel ior, ran away yesterday on Douglas avenue.

A San of Street I'ommlnloMr Grmmlll iMrtMUjr Killed by Kick ttom HI* Pony. Tho sad and terrible intelligence was conveyed to the residence of Win. Gemmlll at 11 o'clock last night that his son John had been kicked to death by his pony. We have gathered the following particulars of the lamentable affair. John left his father's residence In this city at about two o'clock yesterday after noon on horseback to go to tbsir farm which Is located about fifteen miles north east of this city. On his wsy out he stop ped at the residence of Mr. Hickey, and while in the house his pony broke loose and went on to the farm, compelling John to walk the balance of the distance—about five miles. His older brother followed him with a load of lumber, and upon reaching the farm he found the pony which John had ridden tied In the atable, but John did not come out to meet him as he expected. He called his name and receiving no au swer he went to tbe house but he was not there. He then returned towards tbe stable and a shoit distance from it he wss horrl fled to find the dead body of his brotherly ing in the grass, face downwards. After satisfying himself that life was entirely ex tinct, he alarmed the neighbors, and upon an examination of the body the print of a horse's foot was found immediately over the heart, from which it become apparent that tbe young man met his death by a kick from his horse. The supposition is that after-overtaking his pony st tbe farm he caught and tied it in the barn, and ss he was passing out received tbe fatal kick, the force of which threw him to tbe spot where he was found, about eight feet from tbe stable door. Immediately upon receiving tbe news, Mr. and Mrs. Gemmill, accompanied by Dr. J. B. Van Yelsor, started for the scene of tbe accident. Upon arriving there, they found that the body had been removed to the residence of Mr. Smith, and that every thing bad been done that could be done un der the circumstances by the kind neigh bors. They procured a conveyance and brought the body to town, arriving here at 0 o'clock this morning. John Gemmill, who thus met an untime ly and tragic death, was born on the 17th of July, 18G3, and was consequently lacking about one month of being 15 years old. For one of bis age he was of large stature and robust frame. lie*was of a kind and cour teous disposition, and was well liked by all who knew him. His sad and sudden death is a terrible blow to his parents, and they have the fullest and moit heartfelt sympa thies of ail our people in their irreparable bereavement. The funeral services will be held at the Catholic church at 10 o'clock to-morrow. The body will be buried in the new Cath olic ccmetery. THE RIVER. The river is still on the iise and nearly bank full. The steamer Durfee will reach Yanklon Saturday from above. Tbe steamer Black Hills left Bismarck this afternoon for Yankton. It was the steamer Peninah instead of the Durfee which passed Fort Sully Tuesday night. The operator made a mistake in the name. The steamer Chambers halted at Sully and Cheyenne on her way down long enough to transfer several hundred cords of wood. The steamer Peninah, T. D. Mariner, muter, and Jack Hanna, clerk, arrived at nine o'clock last night from Tongue river, having made a remarkable trip, so far as speed is concerned. The itore keeper, C. M. Clift, furnishes us the following memo randa of the Peninah's down trip: June 3d—left Tongue river at 3:15 a. m. arrived at Morgan's wood yard at 11 a. m., and left there at 12 m. arrived at Ft. Buford at 6:30 p. m. tied up at Scotl's lower wood yard at 9:30 p. m. June 4th—started at 2 a. m.. took on wood opposite Kirby island at 6:30 a. m., and got off at 7:30 a. m. took on wood below Little Missouri at 1:30 p. m. landed at Ft. Berthold at 3:30 p. m., and left at 5 p. m. landed at Bismarck at 10:30 p. m. Running time from Tongue river to Bis marck, down the Yellowstone and Missouri, 30 hours and 10 minutes. Distance, 540 miles. The trip from Bismarck to Tongue river and return, carrying 200 tons up, and coming down light, was made by the Peni nah in 12 days and 4 hours, which Capt. Mariner claims to be the quicke time the1 trip was ever made in. The Peninah left Bismarck at 6 p, m., Monday, laid up 13} hours, and reached Yankton at nine o'clock Wednesday evening, making her running time 37 hours for 700 miles. During two hours of yerterday's run she made 28 miles an hour. The Peninah met the C. K. Peck fifty miles below Bismarck, the Black Hills at Swan Lake, and the Far West just below Brule. Capt. Mariner reports a still greater rise coming down, and says he thinks it will be all of afoot higher at Yankton before the maximum stage is reached. This is what he calls the genuine June rise. The Peninah will probably load here. If she does she will get away Saturday for up river. ROASTED COFFER If there is any luxury more generally appreciated than another,it is good cof fee. Few persons can roast coffee well, and to meet this want Messrs. Bell, Con rad & CO., Chicago, have imported and rosted a coffee called ANKOBIA, which is the nearest approach to Java of any heretofore offered to consumers. It is not glazed is brittle, and will grind easily. Your grocer has the goods for sale, as also tbe famous PEERLESS BAKIHQ POWDIR, made by the same firm. Ask him for them and obtain tbe best goods in the world. SIOUX CITY'S DANGER. The Mluoarl Rim BevktaR Old Chan ml, through the Heart of the town. The encroachment of tho Missouri river upon the levee at Sioux City is becoming a matter of aerlous Importance to the proper ty owners of that city. The Journal of Wednesday says that all day Monday the bank continued to drop away from a point about opposite the foot of Nebraska street, but it waa not until Tuesday morning that the fall Import of the danger became ap parent About half past 8 o'clock the bank commenced foiling away in great slices from the foot of Douglaa atreet for a dis tance of ItoHy one thousand yards eastward and for a couple ot' hours great chunks of earth fell away in rapid succession along the whole line. It was not a gradual wash ing away, but a tearing out of huge blocks of earth, in some Instances thirty or foity feet long, by ten wide, sinking out of sight almost instantaneously. Just opposite the Sioux Cily and Pacifice freight house the river made an inroad of 40 feet in two hours, cutting its wsy to within 30 feet of tbe building. The depot buildings, eleva tors, warehouses, numerous small residences and a considerable portion of railroad track are in danger of being swept away. Tbe Journal goes on to say: It is not so much the damage slready done as the danger which threatens us, and star tles our' people. At no point along the whole lenth of tho Missouri has it been possible, we believe, to control it when the time seems to have come for it to change its course. The great trouble is that there is nothing to build on, tbe bed of tbe stream being amass of qu'.cksand aud its banks loose alluvial deposits. There is little doubt but what is now the business portion of Sioux City was once the bid of the river, and ttranger things have happen ed than that the channel of the Missouri may yet again flow through what is now Fourth street. It is hard to believe, how ever, that it will be as bad as this, but we should not be surprised if commencing at a point near the foot of Douglas street tbe river should cut across tbe bottom in a northeasterly direction to a junctiou with the Floyd. We do not care to seem to be an alarmist, but on what ground can we hope that the river will eat In but a short distance, and then return to Its old channel It is not in tbe nature of tbe treacherous stresm to do this. The entire bottom is a light alluvial deposit, and ran offer no more resistance than do the present bonks. THE SITUATION TO-DAT. A telegram fioui Sioux City this after noon says that tbe river made considerable inroad yesterday aftarnoon, but ot much to-day. Side tracks are being taken up to day. It is cxpected tbat tbe worst will come when the river begins to fall. Ready made clothing in endless variety at Chas. Eiseman & Co.'s, Broadway. GentB' furnishing goods at the New York Store.
