     C. T. Warren, Esq., who has been the efficient General Superintendent of the Quartermaster's office of this station, under Lieut. Lloyd, goes to Paola, Kansas, in the same capacity, under Lieut.

     M. T. Graham, Esq., of Westport, arrived in town yesterday  from a long visit to the Eastern States, where he has been doing what he could to induce emigration to this part of the State.  He reports a favorable and wide-spread feeling toward Missouri as one of the most promising fields for settlement.  Many persons are preparing to move to this section already, and thousands more will come as soon as peace and safety shall seem to be permanently re-established.
