" " 23 Our Washington correspondent says he has been informed by those who ought to know that the Usiox is one of the best rural papers in the country. We are at a loss to know who it could be unless it were members of the Cabinet. 9& The Leavenworth papers note the arri ral of Mr. Wilson, of the firm of Wilson & Hastings, who has been in the East selecting a large and varied assortment of hardware. We trust they may have the hardware wants of Western Kansas to supply. I7"The Beef, Flour and Bacon contracts to supply Fort Riley, were let last Thursday as fol lows : G. W. fc U. Higginbotham, are to supply the Bacon at $7 19 per one hundred pounds ; M. J. Gove, the Beef, at $5 60 nett ; Peter Clark, the Flour, at $3 87. HZT Captain Stewart hits been successful in his efforts to retain among us I company of the 9th. The garrison of this post now consists of three companies two caxalry and one infantry. The Captain deserves the thanks of Western Kansas br hiB efforts in this respect, for soldiers are the fountain-head, from which issues green backs. The more the merrier.

The Topeka Tribune thus speaks of the gentleman, who will soon be mong us: "Mr Paulson's departure from our midst is a matter of deep regret not only among his own people, but of all classes and denomina tions. He is a man of tine abilities, independent, fearless and zealous ; a Christian and a Church Reformer in his way ; will dissipate many of those eatechismal and semi-doctrinal incongrui ties of the past, and make warm friends where- tct he goes." --- TBIBUTE TO THE LATE CAPTAIN CLARKE. J1" By the kindness of Capt. Stewart, we have been furnished with the following tribute to the worth and gallantry of the late C&ptain Clarke, written by Gen. Denver to Mrs. Clarke : La Grange, Texx., Jan. 14, 1663. Mt Dear Madam : It is now about two weeks ince I heard of the irreparable loss which you, sa well as myself, have sustained by the death of your husband, the gallant and inestimable Capt. C Frascis Clarke, and although I ielt it to be my duty to write ou on the sad event, yet It is with the utmost difficulty I can even now summon courage sufficient to do so. You have lost a kind husband, and I have lost a warm friend aud most valuable officer, and one whose place It will be exceedingly difficult to npply. 1 have not been so fortunate as to have verseen him in the midst of his family ; but I know that one so uniformly kind and accommo dating in his disposition, must have endeared himself to hia wife and children by the strongest tie of affection. For about a year, we were hardly ever separated, even for a day, and the eaanal acquaintance of a few days, at Fort Leavenworth, ripened into warm friendship, amid the roar of cannon and clangor of battle in front of Corinth. No braver man ever lived, and it would be difficult to find a more accomplished officer. Little did I think when parting with him, on the 27th day of November last, f when .x I found him unable to do duty, and sent him " back to Memphis, where he might obtain proper medical treatment) that it would be the last time we would meet on earth. The war we are MJPfftd in has found many yictims, but there araoen whosa memory will be more warmly . cherished, by all who knew hiin, than that of Capt. Clarke. I fear I can offer yon but little consolation in this hour of affliction ; for although your loss has been very great, mine has not been small. And yet.'however much we may be disposed to complain, still we should not too much repine at the dispensation of an over-ruling Providence. Hoping that you and yours tne wife and family of my lost friend may be made to feel none of the frowns of adversity, but that the Almighty Ruler of the Universe may take you under His especial care, I am madam, though to you per sonally a stranger. Your most sincere and earnest Friend, J. W. DENVER. Maa. C. Francis Clabxe, Fort Riley, Kan. Contrabands. Capt. Killers, the Provost Marshal, has received a notice frcm Gn. Curtis that some 200 negroes are on their way up from St. Louis, on the Gaty, which will arrive in a day or two. The question arises, What will we do with them ? There are no houses in the city to quarter thorn in, and it is doubtful if it would be best to keep tbem in the city if there was room. We presume Capt K. will put thcni in camp a few miles from the city, and then inform the farmers of the State, who can hire such as are able to work. There is need of their labor Leav. Bulletin. From Port Hudson. The following was received at Washing ton by Col. Stager, per steamer to .New York, by telegraph to Baton Rooge : Southwest Pass; March 15 Commodore Farragut, lending in the Hartford, attacked the Port fludsou battoriee, last night at 11 o'clock with the fleet.
