JUNCTION, SATURDAY. DEC. 27, 1862.
THE CASH MUST INVARIABLY ACCOM
PANY LEGAL ADVERTISEMENTS.
OUR SCHOOL TAX-.
At a meetfng of the legal voters of this
School District, held on the 27 th of September
last a tax of one per cent was levied for school
purposes. At the time this -was done ire con
eidered it an injudicious move, and after mature
consideration, and consultation "with many tax
payers of the District, we are more than ever
confirmed in that opinion. Overburdened witn
taxation aa our people already are, it seems
impolitic to launch out Into any measure to
increase that burden, without the best and.
most abundant reasons therefor. The design
of those who voted this tax was to build a
school house this year, but which we think the
people of this District are not prepared to do.
There are buildings in town which can now be
hired for less than what the Interest would be
on the amount required to put up a school
bouse of the requisite capacity, and While such
ib the case, we think it is much cheaper to hire
than to build, in consideration of the tightness
of the times. Even if we should put up such a
house as tte tax now levied would enable us to
do, it would suffice but for a short time with
the increase of population which we will un
doubtedly soon have. We therefore advise our
citizens to wait until they are more able, and
have the help of a larger number of tax payers,
before they put up a building, when they will be
able to build one that will do them for many
years. A meeting will be held at Taylor's Hall
next Monday evening to consider this matter.
Let there be a general attendance of those in
terested. , r m m
J O The District School, now in full blast, has
about seventy scholars in attendance.
VT Colonel Cloud, of tho Second Kansas, is
styled the " Marion of the West," and Colonel
Lee, of the Seventh Kansas, is called the "Murat
Bisaisa Scuool. Mr. T. F. flerscy will

a singing school, at Taylor's Hall, Friday even

All arc invited the more the merrier.
A Land or Horn One of these interesting
little Temperance Circles, is to be organised for
the children. We hope it may be kept up, and
Lty productive of good. We have a set of rather
fast boys in town, and sucli protection caimuu uc
thrown around them too soon.

Happy New Year to all our Patrons ! And may

Colonel Leavenworth, of the Second Colorado
Regiment. Tho Colonel has been stationed at
Fort Wise during the past summer. His boys
are extremely anxious to take a hand on the
Potomac, and frontier metal, with such a leader,
would make its mark.
rOTTAWATToMiE Cocntt Scrap -The Taxpay
ers of rottawattomie county are informed that
Jno. W. Pipher & Co., of Manhattan, and J. N.
Limbocker, Treasurer of Pottawattomle, have
just received a supply of Pottawattomie county
scrip, which they are selling at reasonable
terms, and in sums to suit purchasers.
Thanks. Senator Pomeroy will accept our
thanks for a number of valuable public docu
ments, among which are a complete set of the
oneressional Globe, the Census Report of 1S60,
etc. No man is more faithful to his constituents,
or to the cause of Humanity and Progress, than
is Senator ronieroy.
ID Occident Lodge, No. 2G, I. 0. G. T.f at

Mr. P. Z. Tatlor, to whose generosity and good

ICrSome irritable, peevish, ill-natured, old
xnaidish, miserable specimen of mankind, whose
thoughts cannot for so short a time be centered
on things divine, and whose nature is so coarse
that he cannot appreciate poodle-dogs, proposes
that our City authorities establish a police force
whose special duty shall be to keep order among
the dogs that are brought into church every
Sunday. l nere i smuc b"si" euu "i reason
in the suggestion, inasmuch as last Sabbath
morning a stranger would have been unable to
have told who " run the macnine, we minister !
or the dogs. It would look better were babies
brought there instead of pups, curs, bull-dogs,
&e., they might annoy some one, but still you
would be acting out Uie command, " Bring them
up," 4c. We are not aware that such a command
was given respecting dumb brutes. We may be
in error, though ; and if not soon convinced that
gueh is the fact, and there be no improvement in
the matter, we will get up a notice that ill cut
SaiNPLASTEa Dealers. Beware. The Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue has decided that
persons issuing and dealing in shinplasterB are
liable to pay a broker's license. Also, tbat the
parties upon whom these shinplasters are drawn,
by accepting and paying them, are liable to pay
a banker's license. This will put quite a check
on the ehinphutef business, and we are glad to
see it. The Stale is flooded with them, and
they have pretty effectually drove out all other
small currency. The Lawrence Republican, from
which we get the above, says that " the United
States make it a penal offence to issue them, and
In this Stats they are clearly contrary to our
From F Company. Sixth Regiment. Mr. L. C.
Palmer, a member of this company, arrived in
town a few dayB ago. Mr. Palmer was dischar
ged from the service for disability, having been
confined in the hospital for the last three months.
He left the Army of the Frontier immediately
after the battle of Cane Hill, and reports the
boys of this Company, which is better known as
Clarke's Company, as all well, and exceedingly
fortunate in the way of promotion. The Com
pany is now officered as follows : Captain, Win.
Gordon; First Lieutenant, "Wm. Judson; Second
Lieutenant, John Grasberger. These, excepting
Judson, together with the following promotions,
are from the ranks of the Company: Mr. Spill -man
to a Captaincy in the Indian Regiment,
Mr. Parsons a Lieutenancy in the same, and that
of Mr. Henderson, which we noticed last week.
Mr. Palmer says that the reports of Blunt guard
ing rebel property are all bosh that their is no
discount on the man in any particular whatever.
The General, in battle, dismounts and cracks
away, the same as a private.
CLIPPINGS FROM THE STATE PRESS.
Found Guilty of Murder. The
Criminal Court of Leavenworth, Judge
Lecompte upon the Bench, has been engag
ed the greater part of the pnst week in the
trial of Carl Home for the murder of a
man nearly a year ago. At a former trial
he was found guilty, but appealed to the
Supremo Court. That tribunal stayed
judgment upon a writ of error, and ordered
a new trial in the Court below. The case
came up at the present term, and the jury
have again found the prisoner guilty of
murder in the Grst degree. From what we
can learn it was a most aggravated case of
deliberate and willful murder, Journal.
In the Criminal Court, yesterday,
the case of State vs. Duncan, charged with
the murder of Lcddy, was concluded, The
evidence being that Leddy was shot by a
man named Fergusson, of the 8th regiment,
the jury returned a verdict .for Duncan of
not guilty. Aubrey, indicted for the same
offeuse, was also discharged. Leav. Times
We learn from Sergeant Cain that
the remaining companies of the 8th Ransa?
are ordered to join Gen. Rosecrans' com
mand, He writes that most of the boys
welcome the prospect of a change, and we
are suro that they will fight bravely for our
cause and country, if opportunity affords.
May victory ever perch on their banners
when the conflict rages. Atchison Chanin.
Operations on the Yazoo River.
The gunboat Marinova arrived at Cairo,
on the 18th, from Yazoo river. She brings
the crew of the Cairo, which gunboat was
destroyed by a torpedo, 22 miles up the
In a reconuoissance made up the Yazoc
some time ago by the .Mnrinova, signal tor
nedoed were discovered in the river, two
miles below Aorn's Bluff, where thp rebels
have a cattery of four or nvc guns. An
expedition consisting of the Cairo, Marino
va and Signal, abreast, and the Louisville
and Oiiccn close in the rear, when a torpedo
discharged under the port bow of the Cairo,
tearing a hole in her twelve leet square.
The concussion knocked down every one on
board, but no one was seriously hurt. The
Queen came along and took the crew off in
nine minutes. The Cairo sunk in six
fathoms of water, nothing but the signal
mast and cbimnevs beine visible. She had
just been refitted and clad with railroad iron
in front, and was considered the lightest
and fastest of our iron clacls. Five torpedoes
were taken up betore the explosion, wnen
they then returned to Helena. Master H.
K. Harlett thinks the torpedoe was explod
ed by a galvanio battery.
It is expected that before this another
expedition has been sent up the Yazoo.
Arbitrary Arrests. The Senate put
in the whole of the 9th on the subject of
arbitrary arrests, The debate developed
a decided feeling on the part of prominent
Republicans against the mode in which the
power of arresting has often been exercised.
Messrs. Trumbull and Sherman both ex
pressed this sentiment.
5T The " Abolitionists " of Massachu
setts keep up a steady stream of men for
the war. The 52nd Massachusetts regiment
has gone on. Won't somebody ridicule the
patriotism of the Old Bay State, and con
trast it with that of Kentucky ?
