We huve reptatedly called attention

Slicntlris Affair nt (he Crossing of
Big Blue. '
. We learn from parties returning from
the plains that two men were recently
killed and a third seriously wounded at
. the crossing of the Big Blue. The persons
killed and wounded were returning Pike's
Teakers,- -The difficulty arose in a dis
pute between the ferryman and returning
emigrants, k in regard t" to the ferriage.
Wm. Murray and Columbus Stanley were
jhe' names .of. those ; killed, the former
fronv.Hirdin. Co., Iowa, and the later

; -VvBank Robbery. '
, On; Monday ' night the .Platte Valley
Bank was robbed of some 83,000, mostly
in geld. The robbers had by some means
obtained a' set of duplicate" keys, and
'entered the Bank. '.A reward of $500 is
offered for the apprehension of the burg
lers and recovery of., the money. The
robbery will not impair the credit of the
Bank a: there are ample means on nana

to pay DiT.all: depositors, says the Daily

-The crossing at this point, of trains for
California has been -very extensive the
past week. We notice quite a number
; yet; bound for PikeV Peak. ; The route
from,' Jifqwnville across the plains is
rapidly gaining ; favor. . Hundreds who
had gone out other routes came back by
way of Brownvilie,' and finding it by far
the best, are advertising it as they pass
lack into. the States. No one starting
' from Brownvilie need have any fears of
'being humbugged as to the starting point
and route. - - '

Dear ' Sir: Sircerny last frc.Ti Kthi
ictavr- Kaucn, I have crossel Red
II -er, hto Texas. After passing through
r.-ch pocr country as 1 1 eve described ih
previous letters, I am prepared to enjoy
a more flattering state of affairs.
I crossed Red River at Preston, a small
dilapidated town, but a most beautiful
site ; Steam Boats scarce get up this hlgli
except in time'ef high waters!" Red River
is a fine stream, some two hundred yards
wide with high blufT banks of a deep
red color, which gave rise to its came.-
From Preston to Sherman, a distance of
18 miles, I passed over some beautiful j
country. , Sherman is a thriving little
village of about five hundred inhabitants.
The overland, California , mail passes
through this place twice a week. From
this place to Dallas, seventy miles is as
fine country as ever "old Sol" shown upon.
It is level, with a black rich soil but said
to be better for wheat than corn oa ac
count of the drought; plenty of timber
of excellent qualities; fine farms are
opened up, the waving grain just now
ready for harvest. This with the thou
sands grazing herds, makes the' country
look altogether charming, especially to
one leaving your country at the season I
did. While I am perfectly captivated
with this country at this season and under
all the circumstances, it may be possible
another and different season may blast all
The water in this Country is limestone,
and not near so good as in Nebraska,
especially in the rich lands. ' :
The frost has injured the crops to sorae
extent in some portions of Texas. Farmers
pasture their wheat all winter to keep it
back. The principal avocation is stock
raising and all are in fine spirits. Health
is good as yet in this part of the State.
I go from here to Austin, from whence I
will again write you.

A County Convention was held in Nor
ristown, Montgomery county, Pa., on the
ISth inst.,' which, after a considerable
amount of large and small talk, resulted
m the f election of two 6et of . delegates
to the State Convention. The split oc
curred between the Republicans and Know
Nothings. , . . ;
Hon. J. F. Farnsworth, member of
Congress from the Second District of Illi
nois, in a letter says : ) - 1
"I protest againt any attempt, come
from what quarter it may, -to fasten upon
us or to make the Republican party in any
manner responsible for a principle like
that involved in the Massachusetts amend
' It will not do; the hook is in the gills,
and the more the Republicans squirm, the
greater will be the rent. -
The barracks of Fort Armstrong, built
on Rock Island, in the Mississippi river,
between the cities of Davenport and Rock
Island, was destroyed by fire on Monday
last. The building was erected in 1S16,
and was for years a protection to the early
settlers of that region. It was one of the
earliest relics of the settlement of the
West.'' '- .:" .
The fire, it is believed, was caused by
some sacriligious incendiary, who, it
caught, deserves hanging.

We had the pleasure of a conversation
last evening with Mr; Fillebrow, the
obliging read agent cf Russell & Jones'
Leavenworth and Auroria Express. Mr.
Filleb'raw left Eenver Citv en the 9th
inst. and arrived in Leavenworth
1 9th. h:a!dn? the trip in ten
trouffhf with h m 2,500 m rold Uust U.3
product of the mint's in the vicinities of
Boulder City, Denver City arid Platte
river. Those who are at work in . the
mines are making fair wages and are well
satisfied with their prospects. The men
who" have returned - and reported so un
favorably, according) to Mr. Fillebrow'
statement, had -'never struck a spade- in
the earth. They had gone out illy pre
pared, .were disappointed at not being
able to grow rich in a : day and without
exertion, and left with no sort of a knowl
edge" of the' country.' Mr.' F. supposes
that as much as eight or nine thousand
dollars of dust might have been purchased
without difficulty, and this speaks well for
the richness cf the mines, in as much as
the winter has precluded the possibility
of ; extensive mining . operations. The
snow is yet on the mountains, where it is
supposed the gold exists most abundantly,
and much of the product ' of the mines
must have gone, to Mexico in exchange
for provisions. Some very rich quartz had
been discovered in the mountains west of
Boulder City, a specimen of which is on
exhibition at Leavenworth. Mr. F. con
firms the account of the horrible suffering
on the Smoky Hill route. All who are in
the mines and are citcork, are hopeful and
find much encouragement. Joe. West.

Persons leaving the United. State for
France by way of Havre, must necessari
ly have their passports vized by the French
Consul at the port from which they sail,
and those for the Continent, by way of
England, and who may go to London,
will have their passports vized at the Am
erican Legation; whatever may be their
destination. Persons going to the Spanish
West Indies will have their passports
vized by "the Spanish Consul at the port
from which they sail. Naturalized citizens
applying for' passports must send to the
State Department their naturalization
papers, which will be returned 'to them,
together with descriptions of their persons.
This is all that is necessary. Since the
commencement of he present Adminis
tration, about 14,000 passports have been
issued at the State Department, and they
are now issued at the rate of from forty
to sixty a day. ; -
$600 Worth of GoM Dnst.
Some little excitement was created in
Market Square by an individual who had
just arrived from Cherry Creek, and who
gave out that he had six .hundred dollars
worth of the genuine yellow dust right in
his pocket, which he had brought direct
from the Cherry Creek diggings. As
there is a smart sprinkling of skepticism
upon this subject, the crowd gathered
round in great numbers eager to sec the
glittering stuff.!- , They called on the gold
individual with one accord to come out
and, show the dust, to which he readily
assented, drawing forth a goose quill
partially filled, saying : "here it is."
"But," said the multitude, "there is no
fix hundred dollars worth of gold." With
great nonchalance he of Cherry Creek
replied: "that is what it cost me, and by
the tune seme of you get as much you
will think it is worth double that sum."
The crowd of gold hunters left the scene
m high disgust. o. Joe. Gazette,

'The Convention met at Ossawotamie,
organised under the name of the Republi
can party, and adopted the Democratic
doctrine as to Non-intervention. The only
difference and that as to Kansas only
is that the Democrats are in favor of ex
eluding free negroes, and the Republicans
are opposed to it. The Republicans and
a certain wing of i the Democracy are
gradually assimilating. ' There is now ho
