Tuesday, July 19, 1864.

     Col. Van Horn is attending the Truman Court Martial Case at St. Joseph.

     A large number of the citizens of Weston are under arrest, charged with complicity with bushwhackers.

     Last week was very warm, and this week has opened out with a fervor that surpasses its predecessor.  We are in mid-summer and will have to sweat it out; and in our damp condition wait for the breezy days of golden Autumn.

     REMEDY FOR SUN STROKE. -- To cure sun-stroke, pour cold water on the head' and to prevent it, place a wet cloth in the crown of your hat.

     The St. Joseph Heralds says that nearly all of Captain  Woods' company of Platte County Pawpaws, where were taken prisoners by Thornton, at Platte City, have returned within the Federal lines. They did not find the company of outlaws so pleasant as they anticipated.

     The rebels are at their old game of arson among the Missouri river boats.  Several were burned at Saint Louis last week.  More stringent police regulations have been adopted there to prevent future acts of incendiarism.

     NEW MEXICAN MAIL. -- The coach came in on Sunday, full of passengers.  Perfect quiet is reported along the route.  there are a number of trains on route to this city; the emigration going out on the Arkansas route is reported considerable.  Water and grass are plenty.  We have received the New Mexican paper, with a dearth of local news therein.

     The Evening Star is on her way up from St. Louis.  The Missouri continues in excellent boating order, 5 1/2 feet in the channel.
