The demand for good to prime shipping steers wa very (air, and if there had been any on sale they Would have sold readily. The supply was made up of odds and end', that is to say it coniated of a few natives, Colorado, ihiough Tela, New Mexican and Cherokee cattle. The "run" from Colors Jo is now over and we may expect light receipts. MURDEK IN KINSLEY. Two coli red men had a quarrel in Kins ley, on Monday, which retailed in the death of Phil Bradhaw by Jerry Sanders. The weapon used was an oak double-tree. Time Was a woman in the scrape. The murderer was a large, powerful "buck nigger," and the murdered man very short and small,and was a clever fellow. No inquest was held, but the murderer was promptly arretted. We learn these facts from a Leader, extra. F. J. DaranJ, the popular jeweler of this J city, was married in at. Louis, Nov. Sulfa, to .Maltha E. Burgee?, of Washington, D. C. They arrived here Saturday evening, and have taken up their residence north of the church.

Toil is only the account of hay pressed duiicg the day, and aa the press baa been running day and eight the whole amount pres-ed is about double this amount This is bought from the farmers at from (2 0 to $5 per ton delivered in Nickerron,and doee not cost the farmer anything, what he gets being pay for catting and hauling it.

The number of the caper i 2315, and was served at the price of four-prr.ee. It is not a model ot the typographic art, but we ven ture to say il is a genuine print. We are aware that during the Centennial many lac simile copies of Colonial newspaper wrre printed; but there i an "ofkei" in the head ing of this sheet which could not be done by imitation. There are ctber evidences of its genuineness. The outside pages ar filled with adver tisements of v.iiom descriptions. That of Stephen Girard, dealer in Port wine, Ac, appears. One notice reads: "Thorn Mul looy requests of William Cummin an.i K I en Kean, to let the public know bow he tun deceived or betrayed them " Such ex planations nowadays are not always honestly made. An advertiser wants "A sober, boo ert, attentive man; a free nero, or mulatto, aLSwering the above description would nave the preference. Two dollars reward is offend for the return of an IriVh servant lad. The printers in those days advertised for rag', p.yingcath. An advertiser offers a reward ol lour dollars for the return of a pir of elol-j andirons. There is little editorial ma'ter in he pi per. Trie local page is filled with descrip tions of 4th of Juiy celebrations. European news of April lit is given. Boston news i ;ivtn, ten days old. The Indian were steal ing in Geoigia. Crime was severely punished in that time.

Three otheis were indicted as accresorie?, convic ed and order ed to be burnt in the hand, and lo give se curity for their good behavior. Henry Kei gart was convicted of burglary and sentenc ed to be banged. The condition of the United States was deplorable, stales the editor: The natiots of the world using every artifice and strale gem that can be devired to injure ua and cut oS our trade the right to the navigation ol tbe MUsusippi absolutely denied us, which prevent our back country from being set tled." The editor asks, "How long will near four millions of people be dopes to their own prejudices and misfortunes the people ought to create a sufficient power for the purposes of governing with efficacy." "A sow, belonging to Mr. Drinio,in Kin nalee, farrowed seven pigs, each of which had two months.and in each mouth two rows of teeth." , An insect was destroying the wheat in New York. The farmers eabatituted bearded wheat instead of the bald or common kind, which the insect did not affect. The paper is certainly a curiosity. There ha been great improvement in newspapers since July 6:b, 17S6; but we know of some eheeta in Kansas that are not at gcod speci mens of typography ae the Colonial sheet. Mr. Harris received the copy from Mason & Co., Philadelphia, and he treasures it highly. MPKARRTII.t.B HAPPaTXINea. Joe Minor, a resident of this vicinty, baa recently returned from his old home in Bedford, Iowa, where be hat been making his friends a viiit. He reports crops good; prices of farm products good, and business booming. The question i asked why is it that Gen. Van Voorhi has ceased to write sar castic articles against the railroad company, as in days past. Gentle reader, we cannot account for it unless tbey have silenced his vocabulary battery with a pass. Ha was heard to say during the time Burnt A Myton was publishing the Speareville News, they would not publish anything against the rail road company, tbe company having bought them up with a pae. When hi nephew, B B. Fry became editor of the above named paper we expected to see voluminous arti cles emanating from the General's ponder ous intellect, expressing greater sarcasm than any former articles; but we have failed to see it so far. His h s nephew been silenced with a pars? The trial of Charles V. Koden, G. A. W. Boedecker and Louie Boedecker, charg ed with committing gra:d larceny, was tried Dec 3d, in Justice Jones' court. O. A. W. Boedecker appeared and was discharged. Louie Boedecker was bound over in the turn of $500. Charles V. lioden having disap peared after bonds were furnished him could not be found. J. E. McArthur and T. S- Jones conducted the detente; E. F. Gdborn, of Dodge City, conducted the prosecution, and acquitted himself nobly. We have heud many compliments pwted upon him for the gentlemanly and able manner in which he prosecuted tbe case. A LITTLE TEXAS FUN.
