     The Lexington Union chronicles the killing of Jos. L. Waller, a companion of the late bushwhacker Brunt.

     Yesterday was a bright, balmy and beautiful day -- most welcome after the long spell of damp, unpleasant weather.

     Business is improving in our city every day.  The streets are crowded with people and teams from the country found about, from over the river, and from Kansas.  People are finding out that goods can be purchased here at the lowest figures.  Our merchants have laid in very heavy stocks, and are prepared to fill all the demands of the trade.

     Sixth street, near the crossing of Grand Avenue, is in a dangerous condition, and will soon be impassible for teams.

     Mrs. Minor and Mrs. Spelborne have opened a dressmaking establishment next door to Mrs. Linderman's.

     A couple of cattle, stolen a short distance from town, were recovered to the owner, as we learn, through the exertions of Capt. Hall, Provost Marshal.

     Dr. Lester has just moved his drug story into the new building on Main street, opposite the Court House.  He is opening out a splendid stock, and has one of the most convenient and handsome stores in town.

     The various Sub-Committees of the Kansas City Sanitary Fair met last evening at Long's Hall for conference and report.  There was a better attendance than at any previous meeting, and the reports of the committees show that the fair will be a splendid success.  The indications are that liberal contributions will be received from the neighboring towns.
