Yesterday we got none of our Leavenworth exchanges. Sometimes we get one, sometimes two, but hardly ever the three together. Where is the blame?
The City Guards and Enrolled Militia are being drilled for service, should they be required. In case of necessity, Kansas City could marshal a formidable force.

THEATRE. -- Long's Hall was crowded last night with a fashionable and appreciative audience. Miriam's Crime" was well presented. J. D. Wood, as the returned convict, was a fine presentation; so was that of J. K. Powers as "Heffin, the Solicitor."
FLAG RAISING. -- Captain Seelye raised a splendid flag staff on the Fort Ground yesterday afternoon. It is one hundred feet in height, and the flag floating from it can be seen from the country round about for miles The pole was prepared and erected by John McBurney, Esq., the efficient and capable Master of Transportation, under whose careful superintendence everything went off in the most satisfactory manner. When the flag staff had been prepared, Mrs. Harry Linden, the accomplished actress, amid the cheers of the multitudes, ran the flag up and its ample folds were thrown to the breeze. A verse of "rally round the flag, boys," was then sung in charming style by a wee bit of a little fellow, hardly four years old, son of Judge Stevens. Brief speeches were made by Captain Seelye, Col. Van Horn and T. D. Thacher. Mr. Linden, when the flag had been fully elevated, gave the following sentiment, which was cheered to the echoes of "Our Flag -- It has afforded protection to all who have sought it beneath its folds. God grant it may again wave in triumph, over the whole United States."
