Wednesday, May 25, 1864.

     Much complaint is made of the great difficulty and delay in getting freight from the east.  Goods are sometimes six weeks on the road between here and Chicago.

     The St. Joe Herald reports that a man named Bradford, formerly a sergeant in Capt. Davis's company of Militia, was murdered a day or two since a few miles below that city.  His body was riddled with bullets when found.

     Yesterday morning, Mr. Hale, formerly commanding a company of militia at Camden Point, came to Weston and reported that eight rebels entered Camden Point on Saturday night last, and seized all the arms (41 guns) of his company and left for the brush.

     A detachment of Company F, 1st Cavalry, M. S. M., killed a bushwhacker named Kelly, formerly of Independence, and wounded another, near the border line of Jackson and Lafayette counties.  In the same neighborhood, a detachment of Co. I, same regiment, killed one and wounded one.  Names unknown.

     The Santa Fe Coach arrived yesterday morning with a full load.  Reports of difficulties with the Indians on this route have been circulated, and we are authorized to state that this line has never been troubled by the Indians.

     We would call the attention of the city authorities to the dirty condition of Main street.  We have an excellent McAdamized street, and it is a shame to have it covered up with filth -- the accumulation of months -- when it so easily kept clean.  An occasional cleaning of Main street would relieve the business portion of the city, to a great extent, of the clouds of dust with which we are now daily assailed.
