Wednesday, March 30, 1864.

     Lieut. John W. Younger is recruiting a company of militia in Clay county.

     Capt. Ruggles will receive proposals for furnishing beef.

     Many of the soldiers stationed here when not on duty, get employment from citizens and earn good wages.

     Any good man who wants to start in the business of manufacturing soap in this city, can find a party ready to furnish the capital in whole or in part.

     March "came in like a lamb," and is "going out like a lion," according to the old proverb.  February was by far the more pleasant of the two months.

     Only two days more for the big bounties.  Those who prefer the bounties to being drafted, would do well to call oat Lieut. Scidmore's recruiting office without delay.

     We are glad to see our solid and substantial citizens coming out and offering themselves as candidates for the Council.  It will be a tax upon their time and labor, but the interests of the city demand the best men we have in the city government.

     We are daily turning out the finest specimens of Commercial printing, cards, bill heads, notes, &c.  We have some extra heavy paper for bill heads of very s uprior finish for those who want a specially nice article.
