More Budges and Rods. We find the fol
lowing cheering item in the Washington Repub
lican, and we trust this summer may witness a
consummation of it : Kansas is an enterprising
State, and to-day proposes, by an expression of
her will in the Senate, to hare the United States
Government build a bridge at Fort Riley, and
id in the construction of a road i.i Fort Riley
to Fort Larned." This means that the memorial
presented bj- Senator Strickler, and adopted bv
the State Senate a few dajs before its adjourn
ment, ha3 been presented in the United States
Senate by Senator Line.
A Police Item S. M. Strickler was brought
lefore His Honor, Mayor Hall, List Tuesday, for
having appropriated the City Park to his own
use as a cattle yard. It appears that the culprit
is extensive!- engaged in buying up cattle, and
liaTing no place to keep them, had the audacity
to turn thcurinto that beautiful Park! This so
excited the ire of the City Dads that he was
anaigned forthwith. The thought of the beau
tiful walks, the ornamental cedars, and the iron
railing, all being " chawed up." doubtless biased
"the Court" ngainst him. He desired to plead
his own case, bet " the Court" told him to ''dry
up." and instantly mulcted him in tne sum of
How Tncr Lie. The Carney sheets are hard
at work endeavoring to prove that all the papers
which oppose the swiudlc ore tl-pendant upon
General Lane. In order to do this they must lie
without stint. For instance, the Leavenworth
Bulletin, in commenting upon an item from this
paper, saa "one would hardly suppose the
author of the above was getting $100 per month"
by some government office. There is nobody
directly or indirectly connected with this paper
who hold an appointment through the influence
of Lane, or'any one else. The fact is the author
of the item alluded to does not even get a jour
printer's wages. Another is. that S. D. Houston
owns the U.mov, and " he being a Lane stipen
diary it must howl accordingly." Unfortunately
for them, Houston possesses no such property.
It Pats. Last fall, in a conversation with
Mr. Samuel Cutter, of the Frontier Nursery, we
learned that he was much depressed in spirits
because of his ill-success with his Nursery. He
tated that he had spent four or five years in
cultivating a first-class Nursery, but that he
could not sell sufficient to pay him for digging
them. We advised him to ndvertise. He was
positive he could notfcio business enough to pay
cuch a bill. We urged, and he reluctantly con
tracted such a debt. We met him the other day,
nd from the delight he manifested we judge he
thinks advertising the staff of business, as bread
is of life. He is now kept constant bus, and
many of his patrons are growling because they
have lost two or three years growth of trees.
One man came a hundred mile after trees, who
remarked that he did not know there was a
Nursery in the country until he saw it adver
tised in the Union-.
We have another instance. A few weeks ago
we noticed in this column that Gross fc Thiele
would in a few days receive a quantity of chairs,
direct from Cincinnati. By some cause the
chairs have been detained, and Mr. Gross ex
presses himself as "annoj-ed almost to death" by
calls for those chairs. We will notice the arrival
vf the chairs.
Advertise! Advertise!! Barnum's equal never
existed, and he attributes his success to printer's
ink. It not only pays the advertiser directly,
but it lets people at a distance know that there
is somebody in the country, and that something

JBT A good story is told of an Irishman
who went to see the gorilla in tbo cabinet
of Amherst College. Not knowing the
difference between that animal and the guer
rilla, he remarked on seeing it " Good
God I if they have got such Boldiers as that
off Sooth, I ain't going to war."

This announcement will carry sorrow to many
heart. By several years of medical practice in
the neighborhood of Junction City and Fort
Riley, and as Army Surgeon at the Fort, he had
acquired a high and increasing reputation.
To mind well disciplined by literary and
scientific culture, he added the gentle courtesy,
the kindly sympathy, which flow from gener.
ous heart, a self-sacrificing, earnest spirit. When
the state of his own health even demanded
repose, he was never induced to turn a deaf ear
to the call for aid from the most humble child
of want and sorrow. Eis own ease, his health
even, were of no account compared to what he
esteemed the claims of duty to the suffering.
In his far off Xew England home, an aged
father, himself a physician, mourns an only son,
thus suddenly cut off in manhood's prime, from
a wide sphere of usefulness. We would not lift
the sacred veil which screens the sorrow of the
domestic fire-side, where a young widow hides
He who wounds can alone assuage the deep

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
Headquarters 10th Regt Kan. Vol. Inft., )
Alton, Illinois, March 13, 1864. $
Editors Union Enclosed herewith for
publication you will find an order announc
ing the death of Lieut. Gregor Wohlwend,
of Company G, Tenth Kansas Volunteer
Infantry, also sonic resolution passed bv his
brother officers as a tribute of respect to
his memory. As he was well-known to
many of your readers, no eulogium it ne
cessary from me. I will only say that
early in the summer of 1801 he enlisted as
a private soldier of the same company in
which he died (then called Co, H, 4th K.
Vol.) and was for meritorious conduct in
the field promoted regularly through the
different grades of rank to that which lie
held when death called him hence. He
was engaged in the following actions : Os
ceola, Locust Grove, Newtonia, Old Fort
Wayne, Cane Hill, Prairie Grove and Van
Buren. JAMES M. HARVEY,
Capt. Com'g 10th Kansas Inft.
Military Station of Altos, )

Special Order, No. 58.
Death has seized another victim from
amidst our comrades.
Lieutenant Gregor Wohlwend, 2d Lieu
tenant Co. G, 10th Kansas Vol., sleeps his
last sleep. Entering the service as a pri
vate soldier, his meritorious conduct earned
the good opinion of his superior officers,
aud obtained for him, through them, the
commission and rank of a lieutenant.
His history as a soldier is written in the
hearts of hia comrades. The bloody Deld of
Prairie Grove, in Arkansas, when our little
band, at the close of day, sustained the
murderous onslaught of Ilindman's whole
army, when eery where ehe the battle was
lost, will not be forgotten by those who
survived it. Our departed comrade's true
and unsel&sh devotion to his adopted coun
try is worthy our imitation.
While we deplore the necessity which has
taken us from the glories of the field, to be
stricken in this charnel house the Alton
Military Prison yet let U3 be governed
by the consideration that to die for Country
is a soldier's passport to a happy future.
Far sweeter would be this death, breasting
the storm of battle. Yet, amidst the sick,
the dying and the dead, let us elevate our
thoughts and hearts to a purpose consecrated
simply to the service of our country, that
when our day of sleep arrive?, it may be
one of a quietude undisturbed bj' remorse.
Let our comrade then sleep. Kind hands
will bear him to the grave. The regiment
to which he belonged will turn out to his
funeral. All business of the station will
be suspended from 10 to 12 o'clock, A. M ,
to day. Officers and men on duty or extra
duty, except the ordinary guards, will be
present. Parade will be formed in front of
Regimental Headquarters. Officers will
wear the usual badge of mourning for
thirty days. WILLIAM WEEK,
