& I) t XtnvJm. 1 J rSiSSS Junction City, Kansas, SurrunjjAr, atjokust s. t.sg3. Western Kansas is arousing from the leth argy in -which it has been plunged since 18G0, and is taking on new life. Her farmers arc full of hope; her business men wear smiling faces; speculators arc on the alert; and all things speak of the bright prospect which is before her. Our prairies look greener, our streams larger, our trees taller, and our rich soil turns from the ploughshare richer than ever. Homesteads arc taken, farms arc bought, town lots are changing hands. Our cattle in crease, flocks of fhecp are creeping in, and grain ricks stand in every field. Yes, wc are prospering; we have struggled through the 01 deal of a new country, and wc arc coming out triumphant. Our faint hearts have left us, croakers have slunk into obscuiity, and the sighers for the flesh-pots have turned their backs on us, and w e arc bounding ahead. The energy and determination which made Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana, and placed them in the front rank of onr glorious sisterhood, has been left us, and arc pushing forward to raise us to the highest step of prosperity. All new States have had their season of drawbacks and discouragement. For many ycais Illinois was'doublcd by thousands who sought her vast prairies to find homes; crops cfailed, there was no market when anything was raised, and multitudes left her undevel oped liches, discouraged and disheartened. But the persevering orked on; experiments settled the nature of her staple crops; markets were opened, railroads built, and her career of prosperity has been unprecedented. So with our State. Thousands of restless, roving spi rits, have come among us, and the same dis contcntcdncss hich brought them here has taken them away, filled with bug-bear stories of drouth and inadaptation of our soil and cli mate for settlement. But enough, however, of persevering men have remained to demonstrate our capabilities and prove our resources ; and to-day they are filled with hope. Emigration is like a great tide that ebbs and flows periodically. And the great current of emigration, which has been slackened for the past few years, will soon commence its flow, and why will not the mighty stream set to- wards Kansas? Norther State offers superior inducements to tho settler. Wc have the 'healthiest climate in the world even now, at this season of the year, we know not a single case of sickness in all the extended reach of our acquaintance. Our granaries are full to overflowing, making tho subsistence of the emigrant for the first year a cheap and easy matter, bullions of acres of the finest land on the continent lie open to the Homestead claimant without price. The great Continental Railway, which is destined to connect the At lantic and the Pacific, will, within a twelve month, pierce these broad acres, affording an expeditious and ready outlet to the markets of the East for all our products. There is no doubt about this last fact the work on the Union Pacific Railway is being pushed forward with Tigor, and ere another harvest the snort of the iron-horse will be heard at Fort Riley, and long trains of cars will be bearing our cattle and grain to the markets of the world. The Leavenworth Figut Continues unabated. Fifteen bundled citizens have petitioned the President to revoke the order of General Ewing, proclaiming martial law. While this paper war is going on in Leavenworth, raids are of frequent .occurrence on the border, in the immediate vi . cinity of Kansas City and Westport. Whether Swing is too much taken up with this Leaven worth fight, or whether Anthony is bothering him so much that he cannot, stop these bush' whackers, we arc unable to say. It is patent to very man that but little progress has thus far been made towards the protection of the border, m u Opening of the Mississippi Arrival of a Steamer at St Louis Direct from New Orleans. From the source to the month of the Mississippi, the Star Spangled Banner waves in triumph, and under its protecting folds oar merchant vessels may now float in safety: Several vessels have already ar rived at St. Louis, direct from New Orleans. 5The St. Louis Uuion thus notices the arriv al of the steamer Imperial, the first one up: " Yesterday morning, amid the thunder of cannon, that bellowed forth njcu dejoie on her arrival, the gallant steamer made the landing at the foot of Market street. There could not have been less than eight io ten thousand people along the levee to "welcome her. On making fast she was immediately boarded by the crowd, who, it would appear, could hardly realizo tho fact that tho great commercial highway was again open to tho commerce of the world. have seldom seen so much apparent joy and delight pictured in tho faces of human 'beings as in those of the visitors to the JCmpcriai yesterday. ' Mr. Itoss Powell, tho efficient clerk of the Imperial, informs us that excepting about forty miles between Helena and .Memphis, the river is entirely freo from guerrillas and bushwhackers. The whole country in tho rear of Donaldsonville, be tween Natchez and New Orleans, has been cleared of them, and this point was consid ered the most dangerous on the river. He says there is no earthly use for convoys, as the rebels are beginning to hold in terriffic dread our gunboats, knowing, as they do, that at whatever point a boat is fired into, the boiscs and property in, that locality will be destroyed for miles around. The KawValleyandlti Teats. . v. I Toe following, iron a correspondent of tho Leavenworth. Times, speaking of 4lie Poltowattcmtes and -their Reserve, isW near the truth as can be said of the Indians of Kansas. Let us be rid of these misera ble pests as soon as possible, and fill their places with enterprising white men. It i3 time these lleserves were " cleaned out. The correspondent says: '- ' f A trip up the river dwittste one with Indians. For Years the filthy, shiftless. drunken Pottowattomies have held exclusive possession of the finest body of land in Kansas. Somewhere here and there a mis erable specimen of the white race has married a snuaw for the sake of her lands and annuity, and settled down contentedly amidst the dirt and squalor or the titoe. To see wliat wretched use the30 Indians make of the advantages with which they are favored, is enough to make one sick of the policy of the Government, and to wish, almost, that the process of 'ultimate ex tinction ' could by some means become ac celerated. Let ns hope that this beautiful country will not long havo to support this incubus of sloth. " We dined at the Mission. This is the headquarters of the Agent, who receives a good salary for distributing Government funds among the Indians, which serve to increase their natural laziness and predispo sition to live off others, cither by theft or beggarly dependence. " The Catholic church has also establish ed here a mission school and a house of worship, and is faithfully striving to reclaim these degenerate sons of the forest. The Catholics are a persevering and energetic people, but it they succeed in maKing any thing respectable out of the Pottowattomies, I for one shall be disappointed." Colored Soldiers to be Protected. General Or ders No. 252. Wab Dep't, Adjutant Gen's OrriCE, Washington, July 31. J Tho following order of tho President is published for the information and govern ment of all concerned : Executive Mansion, Washington, July 30. J It is the duty of every government to give protection to its citizens, of whatever class, color, or condition; especially those duly organized as soldiers as in the public service, l nc law oi nations ana me usages and customs of war, as carried on by civil ized powers, makes no distinction as to color in the treatment of prisoners of war as publio enemies. To sell or enslave every captured enemy on account of his color, or for no offense against the laws of war, is a relapse into barbarism and a crime against the civilization of the age. The Govern ment of the United States will give the same protection to all its soldiers, and if the enemy shall sell or enslave any one, the offense snail be punished by retaliation upon the enemy's prisoners in our pos session. It is therefore ordered that for every sol dier of the United States killed in violation of the laws of war, a rebel soldier shall be executed j and for every one enslaved by tho encmey, or sold into slavery, a rebel soldier shall be placed at hard labor on the public works, and contiuued at such labor until tho other shall be released and receive the treatment due to a prisoner of war.

Are Drafted Men Entitled to Bounties 1 The question whether drafted men are entitled to bounties, the same as volunteers, ib of daily occurrence. It is geneially nn dorstood that drafted men are not entitled to the same priviliges as! volunteers in rela tion to pay and bounties ; out this is a mistaken idea. They are all put on the same footing, and all draw pay and bounties the same ; there is no distinction. Section II of the Conscription Act, 'says : And be it further enacted ', That all per sons thus enrolled shall be subject for two years after the first day of July, succeeding the enrollment, to be called into the milita ry service of the United States, and to con tinue in the service during the present rebellion, not, however, exceeding three years; and when called into service shall be placed on the same footing, in all respects, as volunteers, for three years, or daring the war, including advance pay and bounty as noio provided by law, m m A Tight at Paris, Ky.

Yesterday morning Pegram's and Scott's forces, numbering about 2,500, left Rich mond, crossed the Kentucky river, and marched to Pari, where they arrived yes terday afternoon, and attacked oar forces. After a sharp engagement of two hours the rebels were repulsed and driven back. Pegram's forces Tiave retreated towards Winchester, followed by our cavalry. A number of prisoners have been taken. Squads of Morgan's men are being bro't into Columbus by citizens and military. There are now 1300 at Camp Chase. Morgan will be sent to Columbus this morning, and confined in the penitentiary until Col.

India. Fort Hallsck, iDind" Temitort, 1 . fe . July 1$ 1863. f This part of GedV emtio is about filled up witn wauaenng parties oi inaians, ana l some of them are not disposed to be very peaceable. - A few -days ago, a party of about one hundred Utes came down near the post. and sent in a delegation, who professed to be very friendly. Smoking their pipe of peace, and receiving some provisions, they left us, saying they "wan ted to be friendly with the whites; bat, on, the 2d of this month, they stole 14 head, of horses and mules from the Mail Company at Elk Mountain Station. Capt. Allen, command ing the post, sent a party in pursuit, but the Indians could not be overtaken. On the night of the 5th, they stole three horses from the Mail Company. At. Cooper's Creek. At one o'clock on the morning of the 7th, Capt Allen sent Lieuts. Brundley and Williams, of Company B, 7th Kansas Y. C, with 70 men from the same company, out in pursuit of the Indians, as informa tion had been received nt 11 o clock the same night, that a large band of Utes, with a large number of stolen horses and mules, was seen about twenty miles from this post After a brisk ride of about thirty miles, we came up with the Indians shortly after daylight. They had learned that wo were following them up, and had- ran the stock into the mountains, and then occupied the only pass scattering themselves in the brush and timber, from which they opened fire on the troops. The Indians had select ed their ground with admirable forethought and stubbornly defended it ; bat, when the troops dismounted and charged up the steep hillside, through brash and timber, each man for himself, they slowly retreated, pouring down a murderous fire from two hundred and fifty " dusky warriors," the pride and glory of the Ute Nation. Their fire must have annihilated our party, had not the Indians aimed- too high, as is usual in firing down hill. They invariably 'fired over the beads of tho troops. The Indians steadily fell back, until they were forced over the brow of the hill, on which they made a breastwork by piling up stones ; and here they made a stand 'and fought desperately. The troops now charged upon them, led by Lieut Williams, when the Indians fled into tho mountains and gave up the contest. The battle lasted two hours, and at the time the Indians broke and fled, the troops were firing their last round ; and, being out of ammunition, which had been poorly sap plied at this post, we were obliged to return to the Fort, after breakfasting on the battle field. Five of the soldiers were badly wounded. Sergeant Waugh, of Douglas Co., Kansas, a. son of Dr. S. W. VVaagh, of your city, was killed shot through tno body. Corp. Hamilton, Privates Moorhead, Hegwer and Yining, seriously wounded; many others slightly t The Indians, poured down on us a storm of lead j and, had they fired low, must have cut us up terribly. They lost over sixty killed and .wounded; over twenty killed on the field. No troops ever faced tho music better than ours. It was the first time most of them were ever under fire not a man flinched. Both officers and soldiers deserve much credit. If the Governor of Kansas, or some of bis Generals, would take interest enough in this company which is composed entirely of Kansas men, two-thirds of whom arc substantial farmers and have an interest in that State to get us back to our regiment, which we have never seen, Kansas will gain as good a company of soldiers as ever trod ner sou, ana ninety nearis wui ue grateful for the favor. Respectfully yours, Conservative. Stub. The Biege of Charleston. More Chivalry. Nxw York, July 30. The gunboat Paul Jones arrived this morning, from Charleston Harbor Sunday evening. She is ordered here for repairs, having burst her 100-pounder gun on the 18th. The siege at Fatt Wagner continued when she left. (xcn. Gilmore bad succeeded in erecting a' battery of heavy guns within 1000 yards of the Fort, and everything was progressing favorably. Sumter and Fort Johnson kept up a continuous firing, but the casualties average but aboatsixper day. The troops and navy are lu excellent spirits. Brigadier General Strong died this morn ing from wounds received at Fort Wagner. By passenger by the Cosmopolitan, it is learned that the principal guns on fort Wagner have been silenced. Reinforce ments are said to have reached Gilmore, besides several 200 and 300 pounder Par rott guns. The .Tribune's Morris Island correspond cut says our entire loss in the late assault on Fort Wagner, according to official report, is 1577. The rebels claim to have buried 650 of them. The officers and. men of the 51th Massa chusetts will not be given up 'to us, and unofficial reports say the negroes have been sold into slavery The other officers are treated with unmeasured abuse; in fact all our wounded at Charleston have been treat ed most barbarously. Opportunities to amputate were eagerly seized upon by the rebel surgeons, and it was performed in cases of the slightest gun shot wounds. On the left our batteries were advanced 600 yards nearer Fort Sumter on the 26tBu ana six zuv-poumiers piacca in poemou. Rebel officers are excessively- exasperated on being attacked by the 54th Massachu setts. On being aaked for the body of Col. Spear, the rebel reply was: "Ho has been buried along with his niggers.' . The Lawrence papers speak.eacoaragine- w nf tUa nrnsniritV'nf thai T)1afi.

His brigade, .now difision,"i3 io the besttof health andr spirits and tnorouguiy recuperated, ana will be heard from at other points below before long. The rebels seem to be making terrible efforts to save Mobile. It aow appears that Mobile is a stronger point to them thai was supposed. They seem to hold on to. it with the convulsive grasp of mortal ditspair. There are supposed to be some small ninboats on the Tombigbee river, but the only heavy iron-clad in Alabama is on the Alabama river at Montgomery, Montgom erv being the depot, and a, place very desirable to hold for strategic reasons. It is doubtful whether they will bring the iron clad down to Mobile, The 52d Massachusetts regiment has ar rived at Cairo from Port Hudson, en , route for home, at Granfield, Mass., their time of enlistment having expired on the 11th. The regiment is in good condition and numbers about 800 men. In a few days the remainder of the Massachusetts men in Banks' army, consisting of some 18 regi ments, will arrive in that city en route for the East. - - The organization of negro troops is pro gressing very rapidly. Port Hudson is garrisoned mostly, by negro troops, . Gen. Grant has effected a thorough sys tem of mounted patrols from Yicksburg to New Orleans, who,- together with the gun boats, protect vessels plying between those places. Everything quiet No sign of a rebel on either shore. There is a strong pence party in Missis sippi favorable to returning to tho Union upon a guarantee to the people of their rights under the Constitution for person, property and conscience. Some say they would be willing to donate one-half their incomes from the production of cotton for the next twenty years, to liquidate the pub lic debt, if our difficulties can now bo ad justed. Many farms have been abandoned and slaves removed to Alabama and Georgia. Certainly, to such an extent has this been carried, that the Governor's of both States have issued proclamations forbidding the introduction of more slaves within their jurisdiction. Johnston's pickets are said to have stopped many negroes on the road and turned them back to Mississippi. Particmlars of Boford's Cavalry Fight Bnford's cavalry crossed at Rappahan nock Ford at 8 o'clock on tho morning of the 1st Our force was composed of the following cavalry regiments: 8th New York30th Virginia, 2d U. S., 9th New York, 8th Illinois and 17th Pennsylvania. The crossing was about a half a mile above the railroad station. The object of tho ex pedition was to ascertain the exact position of the enemy on the railroad line towards Culpepper, and tho amount of force they had disposed to dispute any crossing we might attempt. The enemy's cavalry wa encountered half a milo from the Ford. It was a portion of Stewart's command, and composed of Jones' and Hampton's brigades with the following regiments, 1st South Carolina, 2d South Carolina, Cobb's Geor gia Legion, and the Jefferson Davis Legion. Our cavalry drove the enemy gradually, without any severe fighting until a point was reached about one and a naif miles this side of Culpepper, when the enemy's cav alry fell back on bis infantry support " We were then obliged to retire after a brisk fight with both their infantry and cavalry. The rebels outnumbered us two to one after they had fallen baok to a point where their infantry supports came to their assistance. Our loss in the fight near Culpepper, which was not important, was a few killed and 66 wounded. The latter have arrived at Wasn ington. and are in the Douglas hospital Our forces only retired a mile and a half after they were attacked by the combined forces of the enemy's infantry and cavalry, and held the enemy at bay. We took about one hundred prisoners. Some of the wounded in our hands have arrived at Washington. Rebel prisoners say many of their dead lay upon' the field near Cul pepper, and their loss equals ours. Our cavalry, undor Buford, made three succes sive charges upon the enemy. A corps of mrantry crossed the Rappahannock and was in position to render Bnford's cavalry efficient support. According to the state ment or one oi our prisoners tne reoei torce JaterMtiBgJro! is so much scattered along the aumeroukzation of Sabbath Schools, application for the fords of the Rannahannock watehine onr movements that no general engagement is imminent at present, per contra, our own wounded in yesterday's fight think quite to the contrary, though in everything else the wounded of both sides agree precisely. m m Decision ia the 'War Department in Relation to Boanty. The Ohio State Journal says that the gentleman who has charge of the Ohio state military Agency at Washington City, uss procured me opinion oi me war uc nartment in relation to soldier's bonatv. which will be found of great importance to the soldier. Heretofore the decisions of the officers connected with the nivntaater'fiJ department bave been against tne allowance of the 8100 hnnntv to discharged aoldiera. In this, Maj.

The steamer Escort has arrived at Fort ress Monroe with Newbern dates to Au gust 1st. The Raleigh Standard donounces Jeff.

The Standard also sajs, if necessary, and if Jeff. Davis attempts physical force to suppress the Standard, Davis will be met with physical force, and a revolution in the State will be the result.
