Iowa Cavalry are to accompany Col. Saw
yer on his wagon road expedition tbis
season. The route is to be the same ae
followed last summer to Virginia City
From that place the expedition goes to
Sacramento City, California, wh^re the
nni:u are left, and tlie uiim.take ship

MP*11 it a aoticeaftle feature S| tbis
military pwst, that the highest decree of
order prevails tmon the soldiers station
ed here. No disturbances, no drunkea
n »ss, nanght b«it sobriety and good order,
Thifl is attributable to the fact of there
being such an officer as Col. Brai-k^ttir
command. We regard it as a fortunate
eircumstance for the town, that the lot of
comBMn4ant here fell upon this officer.
'We had the pleasure this woek of
meeting Col. Thornton, of the 4th U. S.
Vols. The Col. pnid our city but a fljiog
viiit, stopping here a few hours. He
was on bis way to the eastern part of tbe
State, and will be absent from his post,
Ft. Randall, but a few weeks. From tha
s!igbt acquaintance wa have with the Col,
we should judge be is truly what he is rep
resented to be—a refined gentleman and
f^-AppoimiEVT.—Our friend, Hon.
Enoe Stutsman, has been appointed, by
the Secretary of the Treasary, special
Treasury A^entfor Dakota, Montana, and
Idaho, on a salary of live dollars per day,
and ten cents per mile for traveling ex
penses. It is understood that tha princi
pal busineee tbe agent will be to pre
veot smuggling in tlie Red river country,
but his headquarters ony perhs^s be lo
oated at Yankton.

announcement the House met on Tuesday
evening, Feb. 20th,
f^The interest ia our local Congress
it rapidly iocreasiag. The questions de
bated are those of practical every day ia
terest—hence calculated to attract ill.-*
The debatea are conducted with no little
seal, and in a manner wiheh Evinces a
genuine feeling of aaxiety for the result.
Now that tha association has assumed
a deGaed and well regulated character,
with a eonstitutioe and by-laws, wa are
satisfied that it is boucd to be a success,
and predict far it great usefulness in the
furtherance of the objects for wbkh it

The Suicide or Mas. Kceler.—Many
of our readers wilt remember a young
woman, scarcely eighteeeft years of age,

3be was married wa understand, at tbe
age of twelve years, byt finally seperated,
and married a Mr. Smith. A few weeks »%4
she was married to Alexander Keeler, at
Bouhomme, where she resided at the time
of bee deatl|. U seam# tb^t aba reg^fda^
all these marriage as legal, not dreaming
that a woman was compelled tb* live witU
a man, or considered herself his wife after
she had ceased to fove and respect him.
A few days since her husband left home
to go up the river, and durirg his absence
she became jealous, supposing thai he had
deserted her for another Oa Monday
morning she took a dose of strychnine
and went into c^ivalsions almost imme
diately, not bjwever, antil she hud called

Could be adminis'ered it wae to lata lo
save the life of poor erring, sufiering Ada
Keeler. Tt is1 cmijectured that she did
not really intend to commit suicide, but
knowing from prtvi«| experience with
animal1*, that lard was a most excellent
antidote, supposed that bar life could be
savi'd, and her buebtnd frightened into
conjugal" fidelity. When she came out of
the convulsion she was eatisfiw? that death

The undersigned school directors of
Ihia diateivV would represent to th*peopie
that there is a great want of school house
accomodation witTiin our city, the public
owns two houses, which are occupied as
school rpem* and two* others are ranted
at a considerable annual cost. The fol
lowing is the only method by which funds
can be raised for the purpose of building

hold an annual meeting oo the second
Monday fir March.
S.jo. 7. The electorcf the district, when
legally asseinbeld at such meeting, ahull
have tho following powers, vi*
First—To apjioiiiie Chairman and Sec
rotary, In the absence of tbe regular of
Stond—To directthe Sale of otller dis
position to be mado of any school-house,
or the sUoUiareof, and of such other prop
city, personal and real as may belong to
the district and to direct the manner in
which tbe proceeds arising therefrom shall
be applied Provided, That the money so
obtained shall be used for the benefit of
the sub-diatrict in which such scbool
hau e site or other property is situated.
Third—-To determino what additional
branches shall be taught in tbe schools of
Fourth—To delegate any or all of tbe
powers contained in the f. redoing upecifi
cations, to the jar.i of Directors.
tilth—To vote such tax, not exceeding
five million the dollar in Any one year, on
the taxable property of the district town
•h p, as the meeting siiall deem sufficient
tor the pnr'liasj of grounds and the con
struction of the necessary rrhool-liouses
U»r tht? u e ol the respective sub-districts,
and tor he ty n ltoi any debts contract*
•m| tor the erce:ioV. of sc'.ool-houses, arid
for procuriijg district libraries and appa
ratus for the schools."
And, although the directors may levy
*a ind finite amount for renting or re
pairing school buildings, yet tbey may
not as&ess anything for building purposes.
We appeal to the giod sense of the people
to bvein to accumu'ate a fund for so laud
able a purpose a^ery small tax left to ac
cu:iiulato lor a few rents will give ample
imans t«» erect buildings ibat will be cred*
i*ab!e and useful to the community, wa
are aware that the burthens of cotumnu^
ty are very pr*«nt in the way of taint, b«t
we di» think liiat no better investment caa
be »«tl« by any community than an eco
nomical, useful school bui'ding and when
a city or community thus apends its
means the property of the county is en
hanced tenfold for every dollar usefully
emyloyed for tbis purpose-
There was last year within the liasita of
of our schools 386 children of school age,
and wo are conGdeut that the numbor
will increase largely every ytar and most
probably tbe directors who will serve you
next year will find it necessary to estab
lisha 5th., schp j».and tbe «ost of renting
and fining up Teased property will in oar
opinion exceed the interest on a sum suf
ficient to build a substantial house or
houses suitable for ihe wants of coram uni
ty. Every parent who sejid to scho3l wa
presume has been informed of the incoo*
venience of tbe present houses, and can'*t
we inaugurate a small :as to remedy these
evils yorir school directora sre no mora
-interested than any others, they do not
expect nnf wmh to aMtuaga ib^e fau^er ox
pend it, sil they do desire Ts^"that it shall
be faithfully and economically used,
