The Confederate Government nas euecieu a
and Republican U.mo.v. A e were ueiermweu at
the outset to make the paper live, and although
it has not resulted to our immediate pecuniary
benefit, we are rejoiced to know that our portion
of the State has for the past year, at least, had
as readable and neat looking sheet as any other
section. An existence of two years is certajly
enough to give the utmost confidence in its sta
bility, and we now ask of every m in in West
ern KauBas what is our due, their hearty support.
A newspaper is the index of a community, and
our index to Western Kansas can be still further
improved. We want to progress don't like to
stand still don't want to make money by it,
and will invest every dollar in adding new
material, improving it, and extending its useful
ness. Don't let any peculiar difference withhold
your support ; it is enough for your to know j
that it has accomplished more for Western Kan
sas than any other influence. We say this because
facts will justify it ; " blowing " ranks next to
the "almighty dollar." We ought to begin
Volume Three with several hundred new names
on our books. We would be aided considerably
if some of those already on our list would settle
up; would be particularly pleased if some of
those whom we have credited two years, would
credit us one year.
A FLATTERING PROSPECT.
The Santa Fe Gazette, in an article under the
caption of " Mails to New Mexico," bitterly com
plains of their mail' arrangements, and makes a
splendid and somewhat remarkable suggestion.
It is one that will eventually be carried out.
and its agitation is but a part of the inevitable
progress the commerce of the plains is making
in seeking a natural channel. With such testi
.mony to bear us up, we have renewed confidence
that in a short time the Smoky Hill Valley will
'throng with the gigantic trade and travel of the
vast plains to the West of ns.
The article is somewhat severe upon the Kan
sas City Stage line, because of its want of com
fort for passengers, and also upon the mail
contractors over that route because of the irregu
larity of their mails. The Gazette suggests, as
a remedy, that a weekly mail be established
from Santa Fe to Denver. The paper says of
the proposed route, "By the establish ment of a
mail as here suggested we will be able to receive
news from the States in Santa Fe in four dji3"B,
when the telegraph line shall have been com
pleted to Denver City, which will be in a short
time. Besides this, letters from the States can
be sent by this route; to Sahta Fe, and other parts
of New Mexico, with the utmost regularity, aud
quicker by five days than they are now brought
on the Kansas City coach. This is an item of
time that is of great importance to the Govern
ment in communicating with the civil and mili
tary officers of the Territorj'."
Five days' time tavcd ! to which add two
days more, that would be saved by the opening
of a mail route through the Smoky Hill Valley
to Denver. Our route from Lea en worth to
Denver is ono hundred and forty miles neirer
to the river than' any other'route, which is two
days travel, making a saving between Santa Fe
and the' States of seven days !
Leavenworth will do well to look at this item,
nnd we hope it will have due weight in urging
forward the proposed express line between Leav
enworth and Denver via the Smoky Hill.

It appears now that all three of Rose
crans and Grant's divisions were engaged in
the battles in front of Chattanooga, two of
which were driven back in considerable dis
orders. tGen. Rosecrans, in his dispatches,
imputes the loss of the battle to disobedi
ence of -orders on the part of General Mc
Cook, who failed to occupy an important
position assigned him by Rosecrans. Had
he done as ordered. Rosecran's opinion is,
the battle would have resulted in a splendid
Union victory. Great anxiety is felt here
in army circles for safety.
Burnside, in order to reiniorce wose-
crans, only safe course would be to. cross

The State Fair Grounds.
Yesterday we paid a hasty visit to the
Slate Fair grounds, ariti found workmen
buhily engaged in erecting buildings to be
used for the exhibition of all the curiosities
to be displayed-on that occasion. Five are
nearly completed,, iucluding Floral -Hall.
This latter building in size is about eight
een by sixty feet, and put up with consid
erable taste and skill. The one to be used
bv the officers as their headquarters is four-
teen by twenty-eight, feet, and conveniently
arranged for comtort. xue remaining lour
are eighteen by thirty feet. Several other
small buildings are to be erected, and will
soon be placed in a forward state of compile.
tion. The stalls lor cattle, sneep ana
horses -have; not been put up, but will
shortlv be erected, with capacity sufficient
to accommodate the largest possible , num
ber. The site selected contains between twelve
and fifteen acres,, and a substantial eight-
foot fenceaurnmnds it. T There are three,
commodious gates two on, the south side'
and one on the east. .The land being.
somewhat rolling, the track will not be
located around the grounds, but be made on
