JUNCTION, SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 1863. D" We are under obligations to Billy Mitchell for several copies of the Nashville Daily Union. m m TT The present spring weather issgood enough -p any body., Grass is peeping out. m m mi m Thanks to Hon. W. W.H. Lawrence, Secretary 01 state, lor a copy ot tue Auditor's Report. i Captain McClcee, Quartermaster of tlie 11th Regiment, is at home on a visit. He looks well, and reports the boys all well. m 9 iD" Nary dog in church last Sunday! Bully for us. "Heavy" articles will accomplish wonders. Good Joke. Some two or three men in town lately subscribed for that rebel sheet, the Crisis. It ha3 since passed through a purifying process at the hands of a patriotic mob. ID A few "red men of the forest" were in town the other day. They are very suggestive of water, soap, and a good stout brush. Some vermin-kilhng drugs wouldn't be amiss. Tcbiacco. There is nothing more profitable than this product. It is time the seed were in the ground. Streeter & Strickler arc furnishing wed free gratis, and will also furnish a market for the article when raised. Fens. Wiley, at the Farmer's Store, is mon opolizing the fur trade. He pays the highest market price and everybody sells to him. In proof of this look at the amount of furs he has on hand. Manhattan. We visited this burg a few dya ago, having been summoned to appear as a wit ness in the case of Humphrey against Vivaldi. We made the trip straddle of a piece of horse flesh, and the sensations peculiar to those who don't indulge very often in equestrianism are ours. We found the town alive not wholly because of Court, but that most excellent institution, Baexes' Steam Flouring Mill. Quite a number of country people are constantly in waiting for their grist, and the Mill is pushed to its utmost to supply the demand. Its obliging proprietor showed us through the Mill and explained its operations. It is a first class establishment, and does most excellent work. There seemed to be but little business for the Court. The attachment case of Humphrey vs. Vivaldi was perhaps the most important one tried. 1 lie material of the late Manhattan Ex press was involved in this suit. We were re quired to examine the types, ifcc, and testify to their condition. Upon first sight it appeared to us as though a Kaw Injun had been trying his fi3t at the " Art Preservative." Upon stirring up the " pi," we became convinced of this, and indulged in feelings of commiseration for the poor "jour " who may have it to distribute, and of terror because of the amount of profanity said "pi" will give rise to. Types are sacred in our eyes, and lie who knows nothing about them has no business with them. In this case a jury of printers would have brought in a verdict of Guilty of Murder in the First Degree. The trial resulted in Humphrey's obtaining a judgmont against Vivaldi of $600. There ought to have been an offset of at least $300 allowed for the scandalous abuse of that printing material, but because of some technicality all testimony to that effect was ruled out. mmi o:o- Thos. Carney & Co., WHOLESALE HOCUS, Forwarding Wholesale AXD Commission Merchants. Corner Letee and Cherokee Streets, LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS. Have in store the following stock of Fresh Staple and Fancy GEOCERIES ! To which we invite the special attention of CASH PURCHASERS: 3000 SACKS OF FLOTJB; IDR. S. Miller has been appointed one of the Commissioners to locate the lands donated to the State Agricultural School. As Bob. aided in purveying a greater portion of Western Kansas, lie will be enabled to make excellent selections. FitE .'Our citizens were startled this morn ing by an alarm of fire. Mr. McBratney's house took fire from a defective stove-pipe, but its early discovery saved the building. A hole of but a few feet square burned in the roof was all the damaged done. m i O On the Solomon, lately, a number of Sac Indians, who were out on a buffalo hunt came upon a camp of the Pawnees at night. They made a charge upon the camp, capturing thirty ponies, and scattering the Pawnees to the four winds. Kiscsnunr, the sire of the Snqjcv Hill Union-, during the past week lit up our sanctum with bis genial "phiz." He is the same lucky, good looking, well harnessed, clever in short, he is the same "old fel." lie hails from Dakotah, and is on some kind of a business tour, intending to return in a short time. He gave us the usual charge previous to leaving, which we shall en deavor to abide bv. TnE Speech. Last Tuesday night Taylor's Hall was filled to its utmost capacity by a most intelligent audience, a majority of whom were ladies, on the occasion of an address from Maj. Downer on the " Signs of the Times." Judge Ross was unanimously called upon to preside, and introduced the speaker. The Major took a hopeful view of the war, and believed the North would ultimately triumph, but thought we needed more men, and earnestly called for recruits. He indulged in considerable humor, and told several amusing anecdotes of the army of the Frontier, and claimed that the Arkansas women were not over "fastidious." He was interrupted by frequent bursts of applause, and closed his speech with a quotation from Web ster, which was a brilliant peroration to the Union. m 0Thc Third Judicial District Court closed its labors late Saturday evening. The Grand Jury remained in session the same length of time, so that none of its labors came before this term of Court. John Powers, convicted of lar eny, was sentenced to pay a fine of twenty dollars, and costs. Robert Mclleynolds and ;5:onias McRcynolds, charged with assault and battery : verdict, guilty ; sentenced to pay a fine of one hundred dollars, and costs, and undenro three months imprisonment in the county jail. They were taken to the Riley county jail, at Manhattan, last Monday, ETThc case of Robert and John McRey nolds is one worthy of Executive clemency. It was an accidental breach of law on the pnrt of two most excellent citizens. A petition is in circulation praying the Governor to pardon them and remit the fine. We hope it may receive his Excellency's most favorable consideration, for their families will be in a destituto condition. A Banker's License. Streeter & Strickler have taken out a Banker's License under the Internal Revenue Law. They will continue to issue their small bills, and will make them re deemable at Leavenworth. This is the only House in the Western part of the State now issuing "shinplasters." and in the absence of silver change, it will be a great convenience to the public. This firm is responsible for all its promises. Whenever their currency is pre sented at their counter, it is always promptly redeemed in " Greenbacks." Their making arrangements to have it redeemed also at Leavenworth will make it much more conven ient than heretofore. Evcr- body in Junction doubtless re members Captain Svlvestm, of the Twelfth Wisconsin, whose Company did Trovost duty in this town, while General Mitchell's brigade was stationed at Fort Riley last summer. We arc permitted to make the following extracts of a letter written by him to Mr. Strickler. All will remember the high opinion expressed of this country by the Wisconsin boys, and of their determination to settle here after the Close of the war. They will be read with interest, as the Captain and his boys were universally liked. "" I have seldom left a place after so short a stay with so many cheeriug recollections. Though you lacked many of the comforts of older places,the wild game and plenty of fish made our stay among you the most pleasant tt more so from having so much "whisky duty" to do. "My health is first rate, and also with the majority of my men. I have lost Lieutenant Walker, who went home and died j and C. II. Thompson, who died while I was at home in July; also, two new recruits have died, and several discharged ; still my Company is about full. " We have had some very hard service, and some very easy, comfortable times. The pres ent is one of ttie latter, being a holliday for us, -though we arc on picket every third day. We are close to Memphis, where we can be well supplied; have a floor in my tent, the first since I left Wisconsin. The Twelfth is still a very large regiment, and though entitled to no glory Stands well as far as honor. Have never had a fight, though we have heard several, and done ourselves credit for our rapid marches only to reach the scene of conflict too late to participate. " The army here is united, and feel ready to Strike secession North or South. Though we have much to discourage us, we shall defend and preserve the structure our forefathers so nobly bequeathed to us. But on the heads of our northern hell-hounds, who are encouraging the South, will rest the blood of thousands of Northern as well as Southern soldiers. But for them the rebellion would have been ended ere this time. tlI still intend to give you a call if I pass aaf sly through the war." ELECTION NOTICE !
