Mayor's Office
City of Kansas, Oct. 10, 1864.
     In view of the critical condition of affairs, I hereby call upon the citizens of Kansas City to close all places of business at 4 o'clock P. M. this day, and every day until further orders, and assemble at the Court House at that hour, attach themselves to some one of the Citizen Guard Companies, and drill.
     They will bring with them private arms such as have them, shot-guns, rifles, etc.  Every effort is being made by the military authorities to supply arms and ammunition, and it is doubly necessary to know the force to be supplied.
     It is hoped that a general and cheerful acquiescence will be given, as where all are in danger, there can be none excused.
     R. T. VAN HORN, Mayor.  BERNARD DONNELLY, Register.

     Yesterday was a fine day and business brisk.

      The draft has been postponed in the 2d Congressional District.

     ATTENTION -- All of Capt. Souse's company of exempts are hereby required to assemble at the Court House, on Tuesday the 11th inst., at 4 o'clock P. M., for the purpose of drawing arms and ammunition.

     THEATRE. -- The beautiful drama of Aline was presented to a delighted and appreciative audience.  The drama is one of great merit, abounding in fine sentiment, agreeably interspersed with mirth and fun.  The scene is laid in that land of love, suffering and song, "poor ould Ireland." 

     FOR RENT. -- The elegant and commodious sales room under neath the office of the Journal of Commerce.  Inquire at this office.
