PH Junction City, Kansas, SATURDAY, ATJGf-TJST 13, lSG4r. FOR PRESIDENT, Abraham Lincoln. Of Illinois. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, Andrew Johnson, Of Tennessee. j&Next week we shall publish the lottcr of General Blunt on Gov. Carney, wherein the General shows up that political BLystcr in his true light. THE DISTRICT OF UPPER ARKANSAS ITS IMPORTANCE. In the past, such has been the quietude in this portion of the State, that our chief eolicitude haa been directed to do all in our power to strengthen the Union army in the field. And such has been the patriotism of our young men that this portion of the State has been drained of almost all the men that can possibly take the field. While this is our home condition we sud denly find ourselves in the midst of circum stances calculated to excite apprehension of real danger. The numerous baeds of red men hanging about our border, and hither to friendly, are now more or less hostile. They are prowling along our vast frontier, stampeding and running off stock, and ready to pick off every man they can catch out a little from the settlements. Their robbery of the trains near Fort Lamed, and the murder of a dozen men, their stam peding the stock at Larned, the Smoky Hill Crossing, and other places, and their move ments on the settlements on the Salino in dicate that the same feeling which exists on the Platte, extends along half of our north ern boundary, all the western and a large portion of the southern boundary of the State. There is not a doubt but that the rebels have excited this condition of things to oc cupy the attention of a portion of our troops, and however rcluctnnt we may be to spare a man from the strong rebel posi tions, still, humanity, economy and self preservation demand that the District, v'uo9e headquarters are at Fort Riley, should at once be put in shape to meet the exigencies of the hour. While we have full faith that Col. Phil lips and other brave commanders will do all in their power to hold the lino of the Arkansas, still we aro alive to their critical position since the shameful and unnecessary repulse of our Southwestern army. In the event of the fall of Fort Smith and Gibson the war will press itself along the southern boundary of Kansas, and Fort Scott and the waters or the Kansas will be the tern, porary lino of the contest. In such an ovent it is easy to foresee the position of all our frontier settlements, now menaced with hostile bands of redskins. To meet the present and prospective exi gencies, Gen. Blunt should receive the hearty co-operation of all the settlers in Western Kansas, and should be at once supplied with such a military force as he may deem equal to bis necessities. Men aro being raised in the State let them be sent to him. Here they can be drilled and made effective, and here they may bo need ed in a few days. Should the danger which now threatens us pass, there is no better point from which these troops could pass down the Neosho Valley and swell the army that must bo sent to recover the ground so unnecessarily given up in the Southwest. Gen. Blunt's District should be extended to the northern boundary of the State. It sow only goes to the 2d standard parallel, which eats the Republican and Solomon valleys near the mouths of those streams, and also cuts the Saline midway the county, leaving the vast alleys, creeks and timber ed haunts of the red man entirely out of -the District: The real home of the Indian in war time will bo found, not on the sand hills and open plains of the Arkansas, Cut in the rmh valleys, deep wooded creeks and hills foaad on the upper Saline, Solomon and Republican. Hence the necessity of this District embracing thoso localities. la fact, sond policy dictates that the Territory of Colorado should, be included in the District of whiqh Fort .Riley is the natstal base. Fro this base, now but' a little removed; from the terminus of the Pacific Railway, which will in a few months be at oat dppr a direct and almost air-line luiliUrywagoa road should rb opeaed ap, to Denver City. Thus willihis Post serve not only as a base for the lijccof the Arkan sas and the Platte, butwill'be'CK) milea nearer to Denver than any base, on the Missouri river, A direct and excellent wagon road can be made either directly up the Smoky Hill, or along the Solomon to the mouth of Salt Creek, and thence west up that creek, touching the headwaters of the Saline and Solomon, and thence by the way of the Pine Ridge to the head of Cherry Creek and into Denver. And from the base at Fort Riley can the commerce on the roads leading into New Mexico be better protected than from any other point. We trust the Government will not only admit the importance of these facts, but will keep their base of supplies and men as near the points of necessity as circumstances will ndmit. If so, General Blunt will then be able to act his part well, whether to aid Colorado, to repel Indian hostilities in Western and Southwestern Kansas, or to aid the General Government to marshal a force to crush the rebellion in the Southwest. In this article we have not dwelt nn ih detail of advantages resulting from having a base of supplies in a locality abounding wuu supplies wnicn can oe procured at very moderate prices to the Government. m m SAM WOOFS "FORTE." Sam Wood has a forte. We have "disl:ivered' the same. Sam is a "Bungaleer" we beg par don, a Brigadier General of Militia and a very malicious one he is in general. But to Sam's forte. It is not the one now being erected upon the bluff at the delectable burg where Sam makes hiB headquarters. It is not in organizing and making efficient the militia of his District It is nut cither in trading in rebel cotton or Indian cattle. It's not eyen that superlative system of mendacity and bullying in -which Sam is so great a proficient. Nor is it in that general dia regard of all decency for which he is so notorious. Sam excels in all of these things we grant, but none of them are the special" forte to which we desire to call attention. It is true that as the greater includes the lesser, all other of Sam's special qualifications are embraced in the one to which we call attention. Sam Wood's special forte, developed lately in a most alarming degree, as will be evident when the State pays its advertising bills, consists in the preparation and publication of the most stu pendous system of Circulars, General and Special Order ever known to a State militia. Some of his exploits in this line deserve a leading place in the literature of Lilliput or filing among the memories of Baron Munchausen. Wood's last exploit in this line is a Circular addressed to the " Officers and Privates of the 5th Brigade District." The logic of this docu ment is on a par with its bombastic arrogance. This Brigadier Bombastus Furioso first states that " I have just issued an order relieving from active service nowin the service in this District." Sam goes on and gives very good reasons for this order. But after this, and a long series o directions as to the necessity, etc., of keeping up a vigilant citizen organization, and having arms in good order, which all would do well to obey, Sam goes on and issues his orders as to how the Indians shall be dealt with, as to the trade with them, and other matters regulating intercourse with a public enemy, utterly ignoring at the same time the fact that General officers of the United States army are now in command, one of whom has lately been detailed to the command of a new District for the special purpose of meet ing and suppressing this Indian warfare. The latter part of Sam Wood's Circular is certainly peculiar. It is a marked example of that indi vidual's forte. Bead it, and remember that in the very first paragraph of this Circular he states that he has relieved the militia from active' ser vice: " Officers will stop all Indians and other per sons going on to the plains, and will allow no arms, amunition or liquor conveyed to the hostile Indians. White men found with the Indians instigating them to deeds of violence should be caught ana hung; we need none such for pris oners. All white men found in the Indian conn try will be treated as enemies. Sid Clarke's Pro vost Marshals will suspend their cattle specula tions until the Indian war is over, and all white men on the frontier, not citizens, must leave or be treated as rebels and Indian allies. Citizens are enrolled in some militia company. Let these suggestions be acted on and carried out, and we shall have no further Indian troubles. "S. N. Wood, Brig. Gen. Com'g Dis." We do not understand that the Indians are at, war with the State of Kansas especially, but rather with the people of the United States, if at all. The Commanding General of this Department seems to take this view of the matter. We. are not aware that the General Government, Con gress, the Indian Bureau, or the U. S. military authorities, have delegated to Sam Wood the right to regulate trade with the Indian, order the execution of jnen found among them, or otherwise to determine who are or are not public enemies, more especially len he, as Brigadier General of militia, at a ticifl itf great apparent exigency, retires all the force of hi JPistrict from active service. 6am u poor timber Bdsavood at tha best. Unreliable, insincere, untruthful and treacherous, he i the last of all men in the State, to be charged u-ith a public trust He knows nothing but Sam Wood, and as he knows nothing good of him, it u not to be expected that the stream will flow higher than the source. Mr, Wilflei's Address. Hon. A. C. Wilder has issued an address to the people of Kansas, in which ho pre sents the principal measures of the late session of Congress, in which he concurred, and 6tates briefly the reason for giving them his support. The statements are clear and forcible. Mr. Wilder thus announces him self a candidate for re nomination at the Topeka Convention : " Having stated the principal acts upon which Congress is to stand or fall, I should be wanting in frankness and sincerity did I not declare my intentions and wishei in regard to a re-election. I have not "been and am not now a candidate, but 'many warm and valued political friends desire that-1 should be. If, therefore, the Cos vention which will meet at Topeka on the eighth of September 'Should see fit to tender n&the nomination, I should not feel that I hid a, right to decline it." LARGE . ENTHUSIATIC HEET - DIG! TBE PEOPLE FOE LUCOLI fc JOHISOI ABLE SPEECHES, &c. T , The reception given at this place last Monday to the speakers announced by the Republican State Central Committee was large and enthusiastic. Aside -from the claims of Lincoln and Johnson, the names of such notables as "Jim Lane " and " Sid Clarke" were as magic in drawing the peo ple together. From every direction the people flocked to town, until our streets were crowded with wagons, and rendered almost impassable. There was but one sentiment, and that was for Lincoln and Johnson and their iVie champions. The State Committee could not have selected a more effective and popular list of speakers than those now canvassing the State, and their efforts will avail much in making Kansas a unit for Lincoln and Jobnson. Wilson's Hall was suitably prepared, but it became apparent that it would not contain half the people, and the meeting was held in the open air. Daniel Mitchell was cho sen President. He announced as the first speaker, Hon. James H, Lane, and as the "Grim Chieftain" took the stand the cheers were deafening. The crowded state of our columns forbid us noticing at length the speeches. The Senator made many strong and cogent arguments in favor of the Kail Splitter and the Tailor. The Speaker was severe on those Fraud-Fremonters, who hurrah for Lincoln but really oppose him. The General promised the people that should he conclude to be a candidate for re election he would ask them directly for their suf frage, and not bribe their representatives. The next speaker was Major. General Blunt. The General .spoke briefly of the duties of the hour, the injustice of disfran chising volunteers, and urged the people to give the final blow to rebellion by re-electing jjiucoiu. ne spo&o oi nia auues as xustnot Commandant, promising the people to be ever awake to their safety. Judge Safford followed in a speech pure ly argumentative, showing the importance of the pending canvass, and the bearing it has upon constitutional liberty. The Judge ib a favorite up this way, and was listened to with much attention. The meeting adjourned until early candle light. The Hall was well filled, and the President introduced Capt. Sidney Clarke. Following Captain Clarke the Hon. W. W. U. Lawrence spoke. The speakers of the evening sntisned the people that the old saying, that the tree bearing the best fruit was the most picked at, was equally appli cable in politics. Capt. Clarke reasoned principally from an nnti slavery stand-point. Secretary Lawrence spoke particularly of State matters, and their relation to National affairs. Both are pleasing speakers, and and their speeches had a marked effect. We do the Speakers, one and all, injus tice by this brief report. But the people, the claims of whose standard-bearers they so ably advocated, hold them in pleasing remembrance. At Ogden, Manhattan. Wabaunsee and St. George, the people turned out en masse. Judging by the meetings in this neighbor hood, we doubt whether political stump speakers were ever more enthusiastically received by the people. "LANE ON THE BRAIN." The last Topeka Tribune haa "Lane on the Brain" most decidedly. It is Stark-mad in rela tion to the " Grim Chieftain." Ita columns are constantly full of abuse and denunciation. The most absurd and incomprehensible statements are made as to his power. Nothing can be done in Kansas, according to the Tribune, but what "Lane" is at the bottom, middle and top thereof. All the mfschief done in the State is referred to him. No honest farmer in the remotest township of the State loses a wind-broken mare but what, if the Tribune learns of it, it immediately attrib utes the same to "Jim Lane." If a drought afflicts any district, "Jim Lane" or Borne of his pimps" have caused the same. If a bush whacker threatens our Eastern border, 'Jim Lane" is in collusion with him. We fully ex peet to hear that he has been seen in complete war paint, with scalp lock and tomahawk, danc ing a war dance with the savages who threaten our frontier, and inciting them to a raid, in order that Carney may be prevented from obtaining Bother Fort Larned contract, or. from supplying the trading posts on the prairie. According to the Tribune theory "Jim Lane" iides on the t whirlwind, drives the storm, speaks in the thun der, glacces in the lightning, controls the pesti lence, oolludeS with the bushwhacker, and is grand saebem of thO savages. The lat Tribune mentions "Jim Lane " about forty times in its columns. Oh bosh I Does the General nav von. Stark, to abusl him ? It certainly is the best method of keeping him pop ular. Neither he nor " any other man '' could desire a better way to be kept before the people. Jrom Petersburg. Fortress Monroe, August 8. A terrific fight took place on Friday af ternoon in front of Petersburg, lasting from 1:30 to 7:30 o'clock. It commenced by a charge front the enemy, which was repulsed with slaughter. They also exploded a mine which did no damage to our troops or works hit lulled aoae of the rebels, The fighting on ohr aide was principally by the 9th corps, and was most desperate.

You who have been led to believe that Lane is the enemy of Kansas, come out and hear him for yourselves. m The Morris county Central Union Com mittee held a meeting at the schoolhouse in Council Grove, Saturday, August 6th, and organized by electing Charles Columbia Chairman. They called township meetings to be held in the several townships on Sat urday, August 27th, at 2 o'clock P. M., for the purpose of sending delegates to the County Convention Saturday, September 3d. The County Convention will elect one delegate to represent Morris county in the State Convention, September 8th. This is ono of tho most important State Conventions that has ever been held. A full ticket is to be placed in nomination from Governor down, Member of Congress and Presidential Electors ; and it behooves South-western Kansas to see that her in terests are guarded in the selection of the various candidates. Too long has Leaven worth and her surrounding- influences mon opolized the offices of the State. Let us have a Governor for once who hails from some other locality, one who, when elected, will make his home during his term of of fice at the State capital. We are not par tial as to the particular locality he shall be selected from, whether it is Topeka, Fort Scott, Junction City or Council Grove, pro vided he is good and true. Below is the call of the Central Committee: NOTICE. The Republicans and Union men of Mor ris county are requested to meet at their respective places of voting on Saturday, August 27th, at 2 o'clock P. M., for the purpose of electing delegates to the County Convention to be held at Conncil Grove, Saturday, September 3d, 1864, to elect a delegate to represent Morris eounty in the State Convention at Topeka, September 8th. The following is the number of delegates each township will be entitled to elect : Council Grove Township, 9 Delegates. Neosho " 5 " Clarke's Creek " 3 " Peketon " 1 Diamond Spring Precinct 1 " The County Convention will meet at 2 o'clock P. M. By order of Morris County Central Repub lican Union Committee. CHARLES COLUMBIA, Ch'm. S3T Company C, 17th Kansas Volun teer Infantry (100 dayzers), is stationed at Council Grove. This company was one of the first organized under the Governor's call. After several elections, C. R. Ban croft was finally elected Captain. We have seen the company out on drill several times since they have been here, and we must say that they make a creditable appearance. This is easily accounted for by their having quite a number who have been in the regu lar and volunteer service heretofore. We predict that Capt. Bancroft will be an efficient and popular officer with his men. Gen. Wood, who was at one time by a fraction of the company elected captain, find afterwards commissioned as 1st lieuten ant, has been left out in the cold. There is a BStew loose in the Carney machine somewhere. The governor bad asked the Department for authority to raise two reg iments, but only tuagecded in getting per cussion to raise one. As be expected to reward his favorites, and had the commis sion already framed -out. as a matter of otrse some. ono had to be disappointed. ISuA Wajhingtea Special jay a the rebel movements on the Upper Potomae were fieiata to cover the sending of rein ftnwiili to Hood. It is supposed there ware not Urn than thirty thousand , of Lee's veterans sent to Atlanta. Much apprehen sion is felt in the matter. 1UJQS GEYERAL BLTHRTT7 Major General Blnnt paid our place a flying visit the other day, and although we were not uonorea wiui an iHinuuiuu . him (hope you do not feel slighted General) yet we must acknoweldge that we were agreeably disappointed. Any one wno nas from time to time read the contemptible flings and drives made from certain quar ters at the military reputation, as well as private character of Gen. Blunt, could not help but contrast the straightforwardness, the. open, frank and manly appearance of General Blunt, with that of some of his traducers we wot of. Gen. Blunt has won a reputation that he mav well be proud of, and this District is fnnia in having finch a commander. If the General will call on the willing citizen soldiery of Western Kansas, he can easily organize a body of troops to clean out the 1 redskin devils that have Deen muraering and robbing on our border. There is not a county in Southwestern Kansas that would not send from twenty-five to one hundred willing volunteers, for a thirty or sixty days expedition under so able a leader as General i51unt. m TheBaid. Cumberland, Aug. 3. To Gov. Boreman : Mv force repulsed the enemy again yes terdav at New Creek. Gen. McCausland's and Gen. Bradley Johnson's forces attaoked that post at 3 p. m. The fight continued till long after dark. The enemy retreated during the night, leaving their killed and wounded. The enemy's loss was severe; ours not heavy will not exceed twenty-five killed and fifty wounded. The garrison made a most gallant detonse under com mand of Col. Stevenson. Col. Bay and Maj. Simpson. B. F. Kelly, Brig. Gcn'l. Washington. Aug. 8 The invasion pan ic has certainly subsided. Yesterday it was confidently believed that a battle would take place on the old Sharpsburg ground or in that neighborhood, but it is now believed if the rebels had any serious intentions they have given them up on finding how large a force was ready to contest their march into Pennsylvania. With the recent changes in commanders in Maryland, and the present disposition of our forces, it will be impossible for the reb els to got as far as the Pennsylvania line without a desperate battle, in which the odds would be against them. A heavy cavalry force, our great want heretofore, is now concentrated upon the Upper Potomac, and instead of a rebel in vasion of Pennsylvania, the country will be more likely to hear of a heavy Federal col umn moving down the Shenandoah. m Successful Operations against Mobile. Washington, Aug. 86:30 P. M The following announcement of the suc cessful operations agaiust Mobile appears in the Richmond Sentinel of this date, and is transmitted by Maj. Gon. Butler to the President : Molile, Aug. 5. To JTon. J. A. Scddon, Secretary of War: Seventeen of tho enemy's vessels four teen ships and three ironclads passed Fort Morgan this mornu.g. Trcusetb, a Monitor, was sunk by Fort Morgan. The Tennessee was surrendered after a desper ate engagement with the enemy's fleot. Admiral Buchanan lost a leg and it a pris oner. The Sylvia was captured, the Gaines was beached near the hospital, the Morgan is safe, and will try to run up to-night. . The enemy's fleet have approached the city. A Monitor has been engaging Fort Powell all day. (Signed) D. H. Maury, Maj. Gen. Foet Riley, Kansas, August 2d, 1804. General Orders " No. 1. I.
