ALPENA WEEKLY ARGUS.
THUKSDAY, AIT, 1ST 10, 1871. Boimtic. Many Lave been the injiuriis rela tive to additional bounty, and whether tho last Congress undo any tliangc in the law or not. We think not ; but all those who may come within the following dittos, and who huvo not al ready received their Stato bounty, can procure the saiuu by proper applica tion : 1. Men enlisting from March Ctli. 18G3, to November 10th, (both exclusive) iu any Michigau regiuient, company or battery, except tho 10th and 11th cavalry, 13th and 14th, bat teries, and let colored infantry, are en titled to 850 State bmuty. 2. Men re-enlisting iu their own regiments (after nervico of two years.) from November 11th, 1S'G."J, to r'ebru ary 7th, 1MH, (both exclusive.) arc en titled to 850 State bouuty. 3.

The reso lution calling the State Republican Convention not doMgnatirg the place of assembling, the State Central Com mittee met last night f r the purpose of making a selection. The commit tee, after much wrangling, passed reso lutions directing the President to pro cure a suitable place of meeting and give notice of the same through the Itrpnllican Tuesday morning. The city journals assert that a few weeks since, the expenses of the City Hall were $5,0o0, but were increased last week to $12,000. The Pcpuhlican this morning suggested that the ad ministration of improvements employ fire hundred or one thousand men for a week or two to strengthen the levees, as this is the season when gales come upon us. Other city journals call this a pretext to reinforce the.Warmouthitcs. The Timet this morning editorially fays: ''The war between the War mouthites and the Dunnitcs progresses in this city with a ferocity and vin dictiveness never before equaled by a party or faction in a contest in this State. The whole Radical party, in cluding many office-holders of the Fed eral, State and city governments, arc absorbed in this cunbat. Public busi ness n:id interests are utterly ignored and the public money ruthlessly sipian dercd to promote the fortunes of the one or tho other faction. Every spc cU'H of fraud, deceit, violence and trickery is employed to the same end. The police arc relieved from the duty for which they are hired, and ordered to spread themselves over the city to break up the clubs of the adverse fac tion and control all the primary meet ings. The general order is to beat the custom house party by whatever means may be necessary." Wauled u Wife. The Holly Register fays: Win. Armstrong, of Waterford,was taken with the rheumatism over two years ozo. and left his wife and child, a cirl of twelve years, at lash- nn in Water ford, in middling god circumstances, while ho visited England. He left this country November 1st, 170, and after visiting his relatives and friends and water cure establishments in Eng land, returned to Waterford July 29, 1871, much improved in health from hi trip across the ocean. On arriving at his home in Waterford he was not long in learning that bis dear con sort had "gone off' and married an other man, which proves to be Mr. P. Elwood, of Holly, who kecpa a fine restaurant on Snrnnnw street. On Mr. Armstrong's visit hero on Satur day, he was kindly introduced to Mr. Elwood, by Policeman Howell. They looked at each other a moment in ut ter astonishment, and were then left to peruse tho serious matter all to themselves. All manner of strange Btorics were circulated, ono of which tras "that Armstrong was going to shoot both Elwood and his wife" But such was not the case, as Mr. Arm strong took tho matter very coolly. 3Ir. A. will take care of his daughter, and let his wife go to Mr. P. Elwood, who lias been married to her over three months. Mr. Armstrong start xl for Waterford on the mormng train, on Monday last, to settle up his affairs in that place. 2Vtyfttcrloii. A man named Wm.

Sweet, and states tLit he murdered young . ilson iu Ch'cago, to obtain possession of sonic fjreo or four hundred dollars which ho claimed be had in his possession.

The dummy was stopped as soon as possible, and the terrified oc cupants of the cars took shelter in a neighboring wood, expecting every moment to see the train blow to pieces. The employees on the cars exerted themselves in putting the fire out and procuring another engine. Tho en gineer, it is said, was severely burned, and tho engine was pronounced unsafe and sent to a repair shop. Xcw York Sun Aug. 2. Tho Death of Stnudin Buffalo. J. A. Viall, Superintendent of In dians for Montana, transmits to the Indian Bureau a copy of a letter of Special Agent Simmons, giving par ticulars of the death of Standing Buffalo, chief of tho band of Santcc Sioux on Milk river. He wcut to war courting death because he was re solved to maintain peace with the whites and abide faithfully by the terms he had made with the Agent. He was unable to control the Santecs and some of h s own warriors, and to prevent them viotating the compact. The Sioux Indians will not leave the Milk river country. They prefer it not only on accouut of its game, but also on accouut of its being so re mote from a white settlement. They express their sincere desire to remain at peace, and to be fed and treated the same as others well disposed arc treated. Haiti iu Itlontniiu.
