     Gen. Brown made a visit to Independence yesterday.

     Yesterday was as uncomfortable as wind and dust could make it.

     The river was rising very rapidly last night.  Ice and flood-wood were running.

     Carroll county gives $140 bounty to volunteers.  Ray gives $100; Adair $200.  Clay county will avoid the draft by giving liberal bounties to volunteers.

     A. Stephens has reopened the Virginia Hotel in Westport, and is prepared to accommodate the public.
     For the convenience of the public, Mr. Blauw has brought an assortment of trees from the nursery, and has them for sale at the store of Messrs. Frank & Blauw on Main street.

     The high winds yesterday blew several trees across the road between here and Leavenworth.  It was really quite dangerous to be on the road.  A large tree fell just in front of a number of horsemen who were coming to this city.

     Gen. Ewing is stopping in town a short time. He has just returned from his trip to Ohio, where, we regret to learn, he buried his mother.  the general and his estimable lady, will be much missed from the private circles of our society.  The good wishes of hosts of warm friends will accompany them wherever they go.
