Sunday, September 11, 1864.

     Yesterday, business was lively, and the weather fine.

     Gen. Brown has resumed command of the district of Central Missouri.

     A young man, blessed with the name of Isaac, says that "if he is drafted, Abraham will be offering up Isaac as a sacrifice."

     ACCOMMODATION TRAIN. -- The Railroad Company now run a train from Independence on Sunday, for the accommodation of those desiring to take the packet for the East Monday morning.

     In the guerrilla raid on Tipton last week, two citizens, Jos. Fuller and a Mr. Gabriel, were killed in town, and Captain Davis, of the 4th Missouri Militia, was taken to Pilot Grove and shot with several others.

     GUERRILLAS AT ROCHEPORT. -- We learn that the steamer Mars, in ascending the Missouri, was attacked by guerrillas at Rocheport.  One of the bushwhackers was killed and another wounded, and the boat returned to Jefferson City for troops.

     PACIFIC R. R. -- We learn that the road is nearly finished to Pleasant Hill, which will then leave a gap of only twenty-five miles.  With change of horses every eight miles, the trip from this place to St. Louis can be made in one day.  Things are working.

      General Curtis telegraphs to Major Curtis that trains are passing through from Leavenworth to Kearney and down to Salt Lake.  Escorts are not needed.  He has explored up Beaver and Republican to a point on Cottonwood, and has seen no Buffaloes and very few Indians.  He is moving eastward.

     The Kansas City and Fort Scott stage line is doing a fine business -- an immense amount of travel daily passing over the road.  Great credit is due to the enterprising proprietor, Mr. Sanderson.  The route is the best stocked and has the best coaches of any line in the West.
