of the Conscription Act in Kansas.
CTWe were pleased to have a call the other
day from Captain Becteb, of C company of the
Twelfth. He is a good, eocial fellow, of gentle
manly qualities, and will add to the gayety of
Fort Riley.

ETCaptain OfBey's company of regulars, which
passed through this place a few weeks ago, with
the intention of garrisoning Fort Larned, have
returned and are now on their way to join their
regiment in Tennessee.
" "
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.
O At the township election, held last Mon
day, the following was the result at this pre
cinct : For Trustee . K. Bartlctt, 59 votes ;
for Justices of the Pence G. F. Gordon, 53, and
J. W. Woodward. 59 ; For Constables E. X.
Church, 57, and W. Reynols, 52; Road Over
Beer A. W. Cnllen, 59 There was no opposi
tion. We have not seen the vote of the reft of
the county.

Desestebs. Provost orders are becoming com
mon all over the countr' respecting these mis
erable specimens of humanity; and accounts of
gentlemen with blue coats and brass buttons
loafing around are also common. It is with
pride we state that not a single one of our Junc
tion bos has thus disjrenced himself In fnct,
ve may say so of all Western Kansiis No mili
tary clad gentlemen are loafing around here all
are with their regiment, doing duty in the cause
hich they have espoused. We venture to say
tLat not a single community in the loyal States,
which has furnished an equ.il number of volun
teers, can furnish a record more free from blemish
l,Thorapson, Woodruff & Co., are now re
ceiving their spring stock, and certainly arc
giving special bargains in all the -varied de
partments of the dry goods and notion trade
They arc the only exclusive wholesale house in
Leavenworth, and pay their whole attention to
the jobbing department, country merchants
will find it to their advantage to call upon
them for goods in their line. Sutlers and In
dian Traders will find a complete stock of
goods for their trade. They are receiving fifty
more of those assorted crates of Queensware so
well adapted to the wants of the retail trade.
Also five thousand new Gunny Sacks.
A Methodist Mim&teb. The M. E Conference
has appointed the Rev John Paulson to supply
the church in this place. 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 :

Farragut, lending in the Hartford, attacked
the Port fludsou battoriee, last night at 11
o'clock with the fleet. The steamer Missis
sippi ran aground, and was abandoned and
burned. The firing on both sides was rapid
and severe. The army are within five miles
of the enemy's work, in goo-1 spirits and
bound to win. Cavalry kirmi.shing is the
only figbti'ig as yet. (Signed.)
