The funeral services, on the death of Prcsi 'dent Linroln, took place last Sabbath afternoon. ,he Rev. M. Reynolds, of Fort Riley, officiating-The attendance was unusually large. We give extracts on our first page from Mr. Reynolds address. 0Wedncsday afternoon our neighborhood was visited with a "right smart" hail storm. Balls of ice as large as common marbles made a 'Vattle for some time. In tlie night we had a heavy warm rain, and in the morning the grass seemed almost an inch higher. (TTMr. M. E. Clark has been appointed by the County Commissioners, Superinteodant of Public Instruction. Clark' is competent and will attend to its duties. Those having business with said officer will call on Mr. Clark, at Stickler's store. Good Thing. At Fort Zarah a few days ago, a ihing expressed satisfaction at the death of President Lincoln, whereupon a Colorado soldier rprang at him, and broke his skull in with the utt of his revolver. The soldier was too much incensed to take time to shoot him. The dog died almost instantly. ITDo you want Potatoes ? An old farmer at our elbow, says if you want a large harvest of this product, cover them well with straw or hay just as they are peeping up, and thus keep the ground cool and moist, or the chances are fire to cha that you wont raise any. i -mmm mm a For Sale.

O The Rev. J. II. Hawley will preach to-mor--row at eleven o'clock. Mr. Hawley has been "detailed" by the M. E. General Conference to look after the spiritual welfare of the people of Junction, and it is to be hoped he will receive a most cordial welcome, and a hearty assistance in building up a religious sentiment. 0A Lieutenant was placed in the guard house at Fort Itiley, one day last week, for expressing in some way satisfaction at the murder of the President. The account we have of him would indicate that if he is to be punished at all, it should be for not having good sense. He belongs to the galvanized outfit. One of the guard shot at him at the time but missed him. V"TTh Trenworth naneri are hatini; alivelv ior of those eal- kiuis "va - w a yanired rebels in their neighborhood, who wear Uncle Sam's garb of blue. They are accused with having used language unbecoming loyal soldiers. We have a regiment beyond us, but they are civilly disposed, or else their company seems as a restraint upon them.

Smith, and otbersas prisoners, but that they claimed the benefit of the armistice, and he has telegraphed to me through lihes for orders. I have answered him that he may draw out of MacoD, and hold his command for further orders unless he h&3 reason to believe the rebels are changing the status to our prejudice. The Department has information' that the President's murder was organftgd To Canada and approved at Richmond. One of the assassins now in prison, who attempted to kill Secretary Seward, is believed to be one of the St. Al ban raiders. (Signed) E.M.Stanton, - Secretary of War. The old Cabinet to be Retained; VaShinJtOs, April 24. - In an interview with the President, to-day, Senator Harlan, after mentioning his nomination by President Lincoln, and confirmation by the Senate, to be Secretary of the Interior from the first of May next, stated his deoire to disembarrass President John-eon by placing the office at bis disposal. The President remarked that he wished the arrangements made by his predecessor to continue. ' .

As the demand for labor is not great, prices of board ought to be reduced. Bulletin. . ,v " 1-The New York Herald Bays of J. Wilkes Booth : . - j : "He is unmarried and much, given to amours. It is said that he is an opium eater; but it is only certain that he frequently drank to excess. Afthdugh so slightly bnilr, ninety-nine men out of a hundred would be no match for him at fighting. He is a dead shot, a fine fencer, i thorough horseman, and a master of the dagger or bowie-knife. 7 His personal bravery ha3 been unquestioned, and many 'of 'his friends have wondered why he did not join the rebel army, in which hi3 sympathies were already enlisted." SF"The number of men actually surrendered to Grant by Lee was about twenty -two thousand. Eighty two general officers were taken, including ono General, three Lieutenant Generals, seventeen Major Generals and sixty-one brigade commanders. Of these, twenty. five were graduates of West Po nt, and owed their military position tc th,e liberality of tha government which they were attemptiBg to- destroy. it"-the correspondent of the World, writing from Richmond, says : "The troth I believe to be that the flag was really first 'hoisted not 'planted,' on the Capitol by a negro sergeant named Seth Adams, belonging to Birnej's division of tha twenty, fifth corps, who was piloted up to the proper spot, at the top of the building, by an old servant of the Virginia House of Delegates. The English government have sent military and naval officers to this country to repoit on the progress of the war and study our campaigns.
