If the State Agricultural Society wish to make any further estimates in the stock-raising line, they bad better change their field to Western Kansas. m m ty Doubtless many of our citizens remember a teamster, nicknamed " Buckskin," who had an existence in these parts a few years ago. He was captured nome time ago with a party of secesh in Arkansas, and sent to Fort Leavenworth. Kansas Troops. The Sixth, Tenth and Eleventh Kansas regiments are at Fort Scott We may expect to see some of the Junction boys at home in n few days. The Second and Thir teenth are at Springfied. under Col.

Tbavks To Congressman Wilder, and Secre tary of State Lawrence, for favors. We see by the Tribune that Mr. Lawrence is arranging his office, and establishing precedents therein, which will be lEthig monuments of his good taste and judgment.

" You're another," and as much better looking as better material can make you. Wacos Mancfactorv. Mack eyi Wilson have just finished aonie three or four wagons for Col. Wilson. Tkey are entire their own make, and vrt were gratified to witness such productions of Junction mechanism and industry. They are equal to any of the Chicago or Peona make in fact, for neatness and strength, they cannot be excelled. We understand it is their intention to lvote their attention to the wagon making bus (Sess exclusively hereafter. We wish them every auccefSj and hope it may not be loni: until the brand "Junction make," is iu motion simulta neously all over the West. m Cheouno The recent rapid decline in the rates of premium on gold is significant of a greater degree of public confidence in the power of the Government to triumph over all its enemies a fact always apparent to lo-al men. This, then, being admitted, not even a temporary stagnation of business need be apprehended during the ensuing summer. Stettauer 4 Brother, of Leav enworth. beliee these propositions to be facts, and in corrolwnition thereof they are bringing on an unlimited stock for the wholesale and retail trade in dry goods, dress Roods, clothing, boots, shoes, hats, caps, ic at their stores, 17 and 57 Delaware Street. . m . The Matis. One universal growl about the sails come up from the Eastern portion of the State, extending from White Cloud on the North to Fort Scott on the South. Perhaps we can throw some light on the snlgect We have had access to the post ofiice at this place, and what we there saw convinces us that they have a de lectable set of post masters generally in the eastern portion of the State. Generally our post Boaster has had to send back an average of eight T n packages and papers every mail that had " o business on routes west of Lawrence or To pelta were our postmaster like the rest of them, be would send them on across the Bsoontaia.

Fuuxcial. The bills of Lewis Kurtz, Man hattan, and Streeter 6 Strickler. of Junction, will soon be worth as much as Gold. This is no extravagant assertion, for Gold is coming down at a rapid rate. Nor is it improbable, fr Gold, being the regulating medium, will not fall below par. iHE' inference, therefore, is, that these bills are par which is the case. They represent so many " green backs" which are good enough for any body and are redeemable at Leaven worth, Manhattan and Junction. Each firm pays One Hundred Dollars U. S. Tax for the privilege of supplying a currency. A Reminiscence. Standing in Laurel Hill, on Tuesday last. "0 the occasion ot tue funeral ot general Smith, we raw, near the open grave of tin departed hero, a reminder of an event which always impressed us strongly with an idea of the superlative meanness of the -.elf-styled " Chivalry, and of the gene rosity of the " Yankee?," whom they are to fond of reviling. This reminder was in the form of a marble shaft which rises over the remains of the Pbihtdelphiatis who died in Virginia a few years since, martyrs to dieir own tentiuienrs of humanity and gen roMty. The events nf the terrible visita ti m of yellow ftfwer at Norfolk and Ports mouth, at that time, are too fret-h in tin memory nf our readers to aeed to be detail ed ; while all will remember the lavish generosity with which Northern citizen., with Philadelphia in the van, poured out money and goods for the relief of tin--iffiictt-d Virginians. But not only were money, medicine-t and luxuries sent South with uo stinted hands, but men went with generous offerings to perform the drjdgery of the hospitals, and, in not a few instances, o die with the plague-stricken people whom th?y were nursing. The native Virginian who, amid all this 6orrow and desolation, most distinguished liimself in the work of (mtnanitv, was a poor slave named rJob Butt. When the " chivalry " shrunk from the danger of contagion, Bob stepped fur ward, and heroically performed the last dut) for the dead in hundreds of cases. After the epidemic bad come io an end, and wbil Philndelpbia was asking to have the bodie f her martyr nurses brought borne to reM in their own soil, the ''chivalry" determined 'hat something should be done for Bob Butt, who.-ie praises were in every mouth. I'he great boon which was finully detennin ed on as the reward for the colored Samari tan whs the according of permihMon to him to accompany tbe bodies of the Philadelphia nurses to their old homes in order to en deavnr to beg here sufficient money to buy himself from his chivalrous owner. Idaho. Congress lias passed a bill to create a new Territory out of Eastern Oregon and West ern l.'akotah, under the name of Idaho, which is Indian for Gem of the Mountains It extend from the eastern bnutidar ol Oregon to the 27th Meridian nf longitude, .mil from the 42d to the 46th parallel of latitude, covering a hundred and twenty five thousand square miles. The wlndr breadth of the Kocky Mountains, and all the headwaters of the great rivers are in eluded in it. In the plains west of the mountains are the gold mines of Salmon Uiver, and others more or less important, but said to be generally productive, through out the whole Territory. A town is estab Iished in the centre of the gold district with the Indian name of Bannock, which Las a population of about n thousand, and receives :t constant accession of emigrants. The great rivers, which drain tbe Territory in every part and are navigable by steamers dive direct communication with St. Louis. A railroad is expected to be built along the vulley of the Platte River, through Nebras ka and Idaboe to tbe South Pass. So the inhabited area of the Great West steadily broadens, and with the organization of tbe Territories tbe ettenm of immigration flows ever further on. The foundations of new commonwealths are plan'ed even at the base and on tbe slope of the Kocky Moun tains, and the Atlantic and PaciGc States are stretching toward the centre of the continent, and uniting the Nation more indissolublv than ever N I Tribune. lA.The spring trade opens briskly, and large stocks are being laid in by the Leaven worth dealers. We would call the attention of country purchasers to the establishment of F. R. Merk, Delaware Street, Leavenworth, where can be found a complete assortment of stoves, tin, copper, and hollow ware. 99 The Leavenworth papers note the arri val 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. g Thompson, Woodruff & Co., are now re ceiving their spring stock, and certainly are giving special bargains in all the Taried de partments of the dry goods and notion trade.
