through North Platte on Saturday morn
ing last about eight o'clock. The train
consisting of twenty-seven cars pulled
pass the depot to the east end of the
yard, remained there about ten minutes,
when another engine was hooked on and
the commonwealers continued their
journey eastward. The number in the
command numbered, according to one of
the lieutenant's statements, thirteen
hundred which estimate, from the
crowded condition of the cars was prob
ably not overdrawn. As might be ex
pected the members of the army pre
sented quite a dusty and begrimmed
appearance, which would lead many to
believe that a majority of them were
hoboes; but this is to a great extent a
mistake a very large part of them are
