Herald and I SAUNA, KAN., June 12, 1874. It would no doubt appear very strange to your readers if they could be sudden- ly transported from their fenced and lanes out to these praii ies, and see fields of grain growing close up to the roadside without any fence. We have a "herd law" and stock ja not allowed to run loose. Cattle and horses are "pick- eted" out with ropes, or if many, the owner can afford to hire a herder who takes them out in the morning to free pasture, or railroad sections, or un- claimed government land, and back to "corraF in the evening. If an individ- ual has too much stock to "picket" con- veniently, and too few to employ a herder alone, he can put them in with a herd and have them taken care ot at a cost from twenty to twentjr-five cents a head per month during the summer. Cattle graze on the prairie during the winter, but those who have tried to keep them through winter on that kind of food alone, have in the spring count- ed more hides than cattle; accordingly hay is now put up in abundance. The grass costs nothing, and the only ex- pense is the cutting and putting up. Labor saving machines are used to a greater extent here than ia most parts of Ohio. I never saw any one here dropping in corn and covering it with a hoe. With a hand corn-planter one can plant from four to six acres per day one man I know can plant eight acres per day. Many use corn planters. Mowers and reapers are plenty, and the cradle (except those used in the farm- ers' houses, which are in big demand) is obsolete. The quality' and lay of the ground admit of these labor saving ma- chines; it is level or very gentle slope even a rolling prairie. No stones, even very small, except on occasional rocky points or prairies stumps, of course, are unknown.

Plymouth, and has ar- rived at Atago. A large proportion of the passengers were down with measles during the voyage, and thirty-two deaths occurred. Wjs understand that the County Commissioners have given their consent to have the monument located in the Court House yard, and an effort will be made to have it removed there from its present position in the Union Cemetery. One great objection hereto- fore to the location of the monument in the heart of the city basbeen that there was no suitable place to put it, but the advocates of removal urge with force that thia objection is now removed by the cotnpletioa of the new Court House, and iustead of the monument lo- cated where strangers almost never see it, and our own citizens but seldom, it should be placed where it will stand as a perpetual visible remembrance of the men and the deeds it is intended to commemorate. We believe that if that eyesore, the old Market House, was torn down and the space occupied by it converted into a public square with trees and fountain, with the soldiers' monument located in the centre or at the east end, together with suitable ina- foment of the Court House grounds, tfce u-i-jhes of the people would ba more nearly fulBUed; but if this cannot be done the Court House yard offers strong -ii'iueeruents to- have the monument lo- cated there.

The soil here will stand a dry spell with- out injury to the growing crop, which in the East would likely prove fatal. There are two reasons for this plain to my observation. First, the amount of gypsum (Sulphate of Lime) in soil acts as an absorbent of moisture second, the very heavy dews. June came in with very heavy showers and hot days, which: made vegetation just "hum." A few days the thermometer must have stood in the neighborhood of 100 degrees more or less, think likely more, but as my thermometer was broken in one those "gentle (which Kansas don't like to tell about) 1 cannot say with certainty. Last sum- mer the temperature ran up to 102 de- grees and sometimes 104; still I have heard of no cases of sun-stroke. When the temperature is so high there is a fair breeze going. The prairie now presents a tropical appearance with its wealth of summer Blooming flowers. The stately Mexican Poppy, growing to the height of six feet, w now in bloom, large white flowers with yellow centres. Large branches of prickly-pear cactus, sometimes yards in extent, bloom with a splendor that would put the starved hot-house speci- mens to shame. The partly expanded flowers of rich yellow and orange will .measure at least three inches across. Out in the yard is a fine collection of melon Cactus in full bloom, which my wife obtained from a stony bluff three miles from here.

LONDON, June 18 Times' spe- cial from Madrid reports an engagement at Alsace between a body of Carlists un- der Prince Alfonso, a brother of Don Carlos, and a force of Republicans, in which the former were defeated.

A special from Clarksville, Tenn., gives an account of a fatal shooting af- fray near that city. A party of negroes attacked the house of a matt named Johnson with atones, when.one of John- son's daughters fired on the crowd, the bill taking efiect in the abdomen of a negro woman, who died twenty min- utes afterward. The girl waa herself struck on the head with a rock, produc- ing a wound from which it iafthought she will not recover; About two weeks since the dead body of a man named Mike Broasenhare was found in his front yard at Louisville. Brossenhare distance from any neighbors, and the body was not discovered for some days after his death, and was much decomposed, and bore marks of violence. Yesterday a negro boy named Walker Mills, nineteen years old, was arrested, charged with the'mur- der. The evidence against hin is al- together circumstantial, but is said to be very strong. The United States Circuit Court at Springfield, Ills., yesterday decided against the application for the .transfer of the State Railroad suits against the Chicago Alton Rafl- road for violation of the new railroad law, from the State Courts to that Court, and quashed the writ of detain- er; These cases will therefore now be tried in the State Courts, in which they were originally instituted. A full bench was present, Judges Davis, Drummond and Treat Judge Drummond deliv- ered the opinion.

Other reme- dies a-lvertised as cures for Consumption probably con- tain opium, which is a somewhat da -gerous drag in all cases, and if takai freety by consumptive patients, it. must do great injury; for its tendency is to confine the morbid matter in the system, which, of course, must make a cure impossible.
