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,

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.

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.
(Signed) Abraham Lincoln.

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,

Cincinnati, July 30.
Yesterday morning Pegram's and Scott's
forces, numbering about 2,500, left Rich
mond, crossed the Kentucky river, and

There are now 1300 at Camp Chase.
Morgan will be sent to Columbus this
morning, and confined in the penitentiary
until Col. Straight and his men, now held

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,

The .Tribune's Morris Island correspond

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

unofficial reports say the negroes have been

treated with unmeasured abuse; in fact all
our wounded at Charleston have been treat

Opportunities to amputate were eagerly
seized upon by the rebel surgeons, and it
was performed in cases of the slightest gun

There is a strong pence party in Missis

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
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.
