Junction, Kansas, Sept. 12, 1863. jp Attention is directed to the call for a County Convention. m m m Preaching Elder Lactey, of the Baptist Church at Manhattan, will preach to morrow (Sabbatli) morning, at the usual hour. 0"Xo reports hare been received since "Wed nesday morning regarding the whereabouts of Quantrelle. ID" We have things badly mixed this week. The Court, some job -work, standing guard, and drilling two hours each evening, have about used us up, and disarranged the internal busi ness arrangements of our office generally. m m m m Salixe Cocxtt. This county is out of debt, and has money enough iu treasury to meet all bills created by the present term of Court. This shows a better state of affairs than is enjoyed by any other county in the State. tO We are under obligations to Captain Rust, for the finest melon of the season. The Captain has just returned from Illinois, whither he had gone after his family. He lives at Clifton, up the Republican. TD As jurors in one of the cases wherein a party ias charged with selling whisky without a license, we saw three men who were under in dictment for the eame offence. Good joke on Justice! What a farce! Tax-payers pay for such trifling. G We learn that one day this week, a buffalo was shot, two milc3 this side of Abilene. Two more were seen in the same neighborhood last Thursday evening. The prairie on the Saline has been burned for an extent of sixty miles, and it is supposed that a great many will be Jund as low down as Mud Creek this winter. Li" The indictments against the rum sellers of Junction were rendered of no account by the fact that the City Council granted them a back license to cover the date of the indictments. .The old Council, a body that never did any thing else than legislate for whisky, ordered this beau tiful trick done, and the Mayor did it in accord nnce with the unheraal opinion that it would amount to nothing that a crime could not be covered up in such a way. The costs to the county will be three or four hundred dollars. When quibble after quibble saves men from the penalties of a law they have outraged for a year 6 naif, and all attempts to get justice,result in a bill of costs, it is a consoling reflection that there is a Hell! " " A Bcsntt hjckeu Reported About 11 o'clock Friday morning, Mr. John Mear came to town twith a report that a man had been 6eeu in the bushes near Kansas Falls Near by him were tied six horses, all saddled and bridled. He was 6een by a boy who was hunting cattle. As the boy came upon him he awoke and sneaked off into the bushes, leaving a revolver laying upon the ground-. The story was so plausible that in a ev. minutes, about fifteen men were mounted and on the way to the scene. The boy. guided them to the spot where he saw them, but they could find no indications of anybody ever having been there. The party divided, and scoured the country for two miles eich wa3", but' uld eee no signs. They returned somewhat, disappointed, a majorit' believing that the boy never saw anything. The boy insists that he enw the man, and it seems strange that one so young should make up such a story. m m m The Tp.uth will Oit. Our neighbors of the Pawnee specie, it seems, suffer unjustly at times. "We have no apology to make for these red brethren, but desire to relate a joke we heard of the other day. Some time last spring, it will be remembered, two men from the Solomon came to town with a terrible story, to the effect that while returning from a hunt they were overtaken by a party of Pawnees, who robbed them of everything, and took them to camp as prisoners. They even made out affidavits to this effect, armed with winch they intended proceeding to the Pawnee Agency to recover damages. A few days ago their cattle wandered back home. This led to a search.. Their furs and wagon were "ibund exactly as they left them six months be fore, except that about three hundred dollars vorth of furs were ruined. The truth is, they got frightened at a body of Indiana in the dis tance, and took to their heels, leaving every--thing. The Busjiwhackees Coming! Quite an excite ment was occasioned in this place by corroborate ing reports from Lawrence, Paola, and Council Grove, to the effect that Quantrelle had again entered our State at the head of one thousand men, and that Livingston's, and other bands of 'gacrrillas, were uniting with him, for the pur pose of making a raid through Southern and Western Kansas. "We had reports that great excitement existed in Council Grove, and that a body of twenty-five or thirty men had been seen mt the head of Clarke's Creek. Wednesday morn ing Captain Adams, commandant of Riley, 6ent m dispatch to Col. Stricklcr, giving him the in formation as he received it, and offering arms and munition. The Colonel called a meeting of the people at one o'clockand in the' meantime he .went to the Fort and drew sixty stand of arms and two thousand rounds of amunition. The meeting in the afternoon resulted in an organi zation under the State law, with the following officers: Gaptain A. W. Callen. First Lieutenant W. S. Blakely. Second Lieutenant P. Z. Taylor. Third Lieutenant John F. Schmidt. First Sergeant Ed. Lawrenson. Second Sergeant II. D. Mobley. Third Sergeant W. H. Mackey. FoBrthSergeant John Gross. First Corporal R. B.
