T. DWIGHT THACHER, Editor and Proprietor.

Thursday, September 15, 1964.

     The packet came down yesterday with a good load.  A number of our merchants received installments of fall goods. The Hattie May came up yesterday, with a good load of passengers. She unloaded considerable freight for this point.  The Missouri is very low -- three feet scant.  

     The weather yesterday was bracing, breezy and buoyant, increasing the activity of men and businesses.
     Gen. Blunt has left Fort Riley on an Indian expedition.

     "Gentlemen may cry peace, peace, but there is no peace!" at least so thinks Jas. A. Birch, who yesterday tried to talk peace to our citizens.  He felt that they are not a peace people.  This piece of intelligence we give gratis.

     Captain Adam's Great Historical Panoramic Views of the Wars will be exhibited at Long's Hall on Friday and Saturday evening, Sept. 16 and 17.  Truly, this is the finest piece of fine arts ever produced in the city of New York, and by far the best exhibition of the kind ever shown in this country.  Capt. Adams is an old soldier, having been in many of the battles that he will exhibit, and his statements in regard to them will be both instructive and interesting.  Doors open at 7 o'clock P. M.; performance at 7 1/2 o'clock.  Admission, 50 cents.  Children half price.

     PRESIDENTIAL VOTE. -- A train coming from Fort Gibson with which were sixty seven soldiers, a vote was taken for the Presidency, resulting thus:  Lincoln 61; McClellan 3; Fremont 1.  Two of the soldiers declined to vote.  The army of the frontier will go unanimous for the re-election of "Old Abe."

     THE QUOTA OF MISSOURI. -- Gen. John B. Gray, Adjutant General of Missouri, has gone to Washington to look after the interests of this State in procuring credits to Missouri residents enlisted in regiments of the States of Iowa, Kansas, Arkansas, and the Territory of Nebraska.  These, it is thought, number about 2,500, which will, if credited, give us a considerable reduction in our quota.
