T. DWIGHT THACHER, Editor and Proprietor.

Thursday, June 2, 1864.

     Yesterday was a delightfully cool, pleasant day.  No blinding dust nor hot sun.

     The Missouri River is rising.  Doubtless it is the commencement of the expected "June rise," and plenty of water for navigation may be expected for some time.

     The Ninth Minnesota, a portion of which regiment was recently stationed here, embarked at St. Louis for Little Rock.  The regiment was nine hundred strong.

     The finest and best assortment of Ladies' Hats, Head Dresses, Belts, Calicos, Lawns, &c., &c., we have seen this season were received yesterday by Stettauer & Co.'s New York Store on Main street between Second and Third.

     WANTED. -- Four or five good hands to raft logs.  High wages will be paid.  apply immediately to J. S. & F. M. Duncan.

     The City Marshal has succeeded in having a good many of the nuisances removed which have been offensive to the citizens for a long time.  We hope he will continue in the good work,  until the streets and public places are rid of all unseemly objects.

     QUANTRELL OR HIS GHOST. -- About one o'clock yesterday a man came into town and informed the military authorities that Quantrell passed through our streets, on a white horse, a few minutes before.  He said that he saw and recognized him at Wyandot, where he was attempting to buy some horses.  The supposed Quantrell crossed the ferry and came to this city, and he followed as fast as possible to give the alarm and secure his arrest.  The rumor did not create much excitement, as the story was so improbable that it was generally believed that the man was mistaken.  The military authorities promptly took steps to find out, if possible, who the horseman upon the white charger was.
     LATER. -- The identical man who raised the rumpus was found.  He is not Quantrell nor a bushwhacker, but a good, loyal citizen, engaged in repairing the telegraph.
