The M. S. Mepham is on her second trip up the Missouri river. She landed at our Levee yesterday morning and unloaded a large amount of freight. We gave quite a lengthy description of the boat when she was up a few weeks since.

Atchison is the Eastern terminus of the Overland Express Route. Connection is here made with the United States Express to the Eastward. According to the Atchison Press, the transfer of shipments between these two companies, now amounts to more than two and one half tons per week.
