The Fourth passed off without any demonstration on the part of our citizens, en masse. Every one celebrated according to his own peculiar turn of mind. Some went to Shawnee Mission, Kansas, where there was a large assembly from this city and the surrounding county, and the affair was appropriately conducted. Others went to Wyandot and joined the citizens there, who made an excursion on the railroad, having a good time, generally. So passed another Fourth.
The colored individuals of African persuasion from this city and Wyandot held a jollification at the latter place on Monday. we rather guess they had a large time.
The Stage and Express from Cameron to Lexington was robbed on Saturday evening, on the north side of the river opposite Lexington, by the bushwhackers. They made a haul of ten gold watches and $1,200 in green backs. All accounts agree that the bushwhackers are concentrating more and more north of the river. They will make a big drive up there somewhere by and by.
The T. L. McGill came up Sunday evening, and on Monday discharged nearly five hundred tons of railroad irons, and other freight for the west end of the Missouri Pacific Railroad. The work on this end of the road is being pushed rapidly.
Our vegetable market has been rather slim since the drought set in. We saw some cabbage brought in yesterday morning, the only thing remarkable about them was, that the price was higher than the cabbage. The heavy showers which fell on Monday afternoon and night, will of course bring a corresponding rise in vegetables, which will be less objectionable to the greater part of the community.
A friend writes us that a bold vein of copper was found on the 4th in the vicinity of Muncie Town, a few miles above Wyandot. It has the appearance of genuine copper, and is supposed to be a branch of the great Vallandigham vein. Kansas is a poor country for that kind of material.
The daily mail from here to Warrensburg is resumed. We trust that this route will now be maintained, if it takes an escort to accompany the stage every time it makes the trip. we are opposed to giving up mails and telegraph lines to the bushwhackers. The regular telegraph line ought to be immediately repaired and a sufficient body of troops stationed near it to protect it. If the bushwhackers are there, there is the place to catch them.
