The heart sickens at the perusal of it. It is Well. Hare is a hell for the authors of each cruelty can not be adequately punished in it Hia world the can too prisoners had been confined in App Lamb about a mile from the City.

To the credit of the citizens it is to the said Many site Mph were made to relieve them but the food was in All oases taken from them by order of the officers in command and trodden into the ground before the eyes of prisoners and of the citizens. It was thought that four Hundred Woald recover it Many were in a dying condition. All that has appeared in the Public prints in regard to this matter utterly fails to prepare one for the awful reality. After Nerving myself for the a int. End trying to picture All its horror while Riding slowly Over the half mile to the House where they had been collected brain reeled for the moment As the sickening reality burst upon me. Officers came in and those who had never quailed in the Field of death whose Cheeks bad Nevet blanched there stood aghast with tears in their eyes grinding their Teeth clenching their hands and thanking god that there was a hell. Pale Haggard and emaciated skeletons glared on us from Glas a Yea where the Light of reason was Jast exp Reg.

From the Consen ratites. Citizens of Leavenworth will remember that there stood on main Street Between Dele Ware and Shawnee in 1867, 1868 and 1869, on the ground now of copied by handsome Brick buildings a shabby look ing tumbling Cotton a shed. It was occupied on the Grovind floor by Hampton p. Derman sex mayor As a land Agency office. The rooms above were reached by a Oraidy looking stairway on the outside up which no one Ever went without dread of their falling. Dingy Raigna informed the curious that within was a Law shop kept by Hugh swing Thomas Ewing jr., w. and Daniel Mccook. Thoe cont stated the firm known Here in the Early part of 69 As Ewing Sherman and if Ccook. All were comparatively Young men. All were ambitions the one who has gained the greatest Fame perhaps the least so of tha associated lawyers. The ewings had the Advant a of High Cultura considerable natural abilities cold impassive temperaments and a powerful family influence Taid their Aspira Tiona. Hugh Ewing was Bat Litts known hereabouts though acknowledged to be a Brilliant and versatile Genina by his inti Mustee. Tong Tom Quot As the other scion is familiarly called has always been a prominent and influential Public Man. The third member of the firm fills to Day one of the broadest Psge in the history of our land. His name and Fame have rank with the greatest of Earth. All conspire to do him Honor. Aliens Bow to his Genius and enemies show the extent of their fears of its Power by the virulence of their hate and its manifestations. W. T. Sherman never mingled in our Public eff sirs. He lived among us for several months having some landed interest Here. An outlying part of our City plat is marked on the maps As a Sherman s prior to entering upon the practice of Law in this City he lived for some time in the Vicinity of Topeka upon a farm of 100 acres which we believe he still owns. His neighbors Tell of his abrupt manners reserved yet forcible speech and character. Previous to residing in Kansas Sherman bad lived in California where As a Miner banker and lawyer he made and lost a Large Fortune. A graduate of West Point he had previously held a Gupta in a com Mission in the Topographic so Engineer corps and in pursuance of duty had made several important surveys and explorations the reports of which have been duly published by government. They relate principally to routes tor the Pacific Railroad. The fourth member of the firm Dan l Mccook was known and appreciated Here by the fraternity As one of the Best of a Good he was Young Active ardent an intense partisan and ambitious Wight who held the tolerable Good opinion of his own is pacify common to the a pin Feather Quot state of Frenus Homo. A Dan Quot practice Law before the lower courts doing the Justice and probate and always having plenty of work in the United states District court which was often the scene of amusing sparring Between him and the judge the Able but indecent Petite whose judgment Dan was in the habit of freely criticising. A in politics the firm were unequally proportioned Thomas Ewing jr., being a conservative Republican while his brother Hugh Sherman and Mccook were All democrats the latter being an Active local politician and at one time elected probate judge of this county. The City being then largely democratic and somewhat pro slavery the firm possessed considerable influence. A Good Story is told of Shernia a experience As counsel and of Hia dissolution of partnership to take the position held by him when the War broke oat that of president of the military College of Louis Siana. While in the practice of Law Here Sherman waa the consulting partner having an almost insurmountable objection to pleading in court. He is accorded the posses Aion As a lawyer of thorough knowledge of Legal principles a Clear and logical per option of the Pointa of equity involved in any Case. He could present his Tiews in tha most direct manner stripped of All verbiage yet perfectly Augait in the a Thor Tiaa. But to return to our Story. Shortly after the rec prion of the. Offer from the of it error of Louisiana in relation to the col lege Sherman waa compelled to Appe before the rubato Jird get Gardner a believe. The other partners were Boay and Sherman with his itt thormities and the Case All mapped out proceed a a to Coart. He returned in a rage two Hoara something had gone wrong.

Such Are the impressions left on our mind by the Only military educated member of this Legal quartet tel All of whom have held commissions As generals in oar army. Hugh Ewing went Early into the War As a colonel of an Ohio regiment to which state he had returned before the rebellion. He waa soon promoted to a brigadier ship.

A Boston paper pays the following just tribute to the West the West is getting its share of big things. It has tha presidency it has the vice presidency it has the chief Justice ship and it has the department of the Interior and the attorney generalship in the Federal administration also the Post Napster generalship. Well nobody com plainer but we ask Western men to observe How much better they fare now than under democratic Ascendancy. The West has done so splendidly in the War As Well As in politics. That there is a Strong disposition to see her position in the National government made one of a prominent character. Aant a Ffora a u id ban or for Tane to Anoo Anur.

A pktective>8 Story. I am a detective in the Victoria police end Bava Baen one for Aonia years i was formerly one in Paris and i was employed is each in the Hyde perk exhibition of 1861. Since then i have been in various Paru of Tea world in fact there Are very few of the Force that Haven to knocked about tha world a Good Deal. However at last i have settled in Australia and Hope my roving in ended. I have never had but one Creek Kaaa entrusted to my care i have. Tracked thieves from Tea dig Gin Interior and found them Boundary it Mera on stations or clerk that did not keep or Lliran Oyanta straight and found them Bull oof driving a country but there were Small affairs a of Braga Lete Boon settled such but once and a matter to find out on the very Slig Testin formation received which required All my skill and All the resources of my Long experience. Somei four Yesra so there lived about a mile Down the Glenelg River be youd the Bridge in oldish Mao who was re muted to have made somewhere a Good a pile. He was a thorough Hermit Seldom stirred out except to go to the store and buy a few necessarily for which he always paid and never was known to beat Down or Haggle about the Price of any thing. This naturally led to the surmise that be bed plenty of Money. Near him lived another single Man in a slab and bark hut be was a Shoemaker by Trade but in a Small township like this his customers were but few and Bis livelihood precarious. He was known to be As poor As Bis neighbor was supposed to be Rich and was As much dependent on the forbearance of his or motors As the other was on his ready Money. Between these two solitary men. Living on the River Side there sprung up a strangely intimate Friendship always after Bres Kisst often through the Day and regularly at night they had their pipe together sometimes with a Mannikin of Tea Only at others with a Glass of grog. There was a dim mystery hanging Over the supposed Rich men s history where he had come from or Bow be had made his Money no one knew and his churlish Way Fords de any one to ask him he and the Shoemaker were All the world to each other and beyond that neither seemed to care any thing. In this uniform but curious Mode of life weeks and months passed away the Only difference observable being that although Stevens the Shoemaker had no More Cus to Mere then formerly he now seemed to have Money always at command and not Only paid off his old scores but had ready Money for All he needed. One morning however it was in the Winter season and the Glenelg was rolling its turbulent Waters Muddy and Swift Down to the sea the old Man s but was not opened Wood splitters passing by observed that the old Hermit was not sunning himself and smoking his a Cutty Quot As Ysusi and that night Stevens come running into the town ship greatly excited and calling on or. To at the inn told him that not having seen old Jeffrey All Day he bad forced an Ente rence into the hut but that the old Man was not there and what had become of him he did not know. A policeman for h is a police Sutton was immediately event to take charge of the hut until the magistrates should make inquiry. Some Days after the inquiry was made but nothing came of it further than the suspicion that Jeffrey had met with foul play. Still nothing was proved until the body could be found for eccentric As the old Man was who could say he had not got up in the night and As suddenly started from he As he had once made Hie appearance there. As soon As intelligence of this affair reached head quarters at Melbourne the matter was placed in my hands with instructions to exercise my own discretion in my proceedings absolving me from All disgrace if i failed and promising me one Hun a red pounds if i succeeded. My plan was adopted after much consideration and i have no reason to regret the step i took As will be seen in the sequel. 1 took the Little Steamer. Western Captain Lucas to Portland two Hundred and sixty Miles and after stopping a Day or two at Mac a Cale Bra Tad hotel 1 started by the mail for uie far Interior. After three Daya journey arrived at h a traveler looking for had a tolerably heavy a Job of work. I swag and Thia with my Mannikin and Billy gave me All the appearance of a Bona fide one. I went straight up Tola bar had my Robbier lighted my pipe and then sat Dowie cuts Ida to consider my next movement. It waa Nace Esary i should have some one in my Confidence but i resolved not to Trual tha local police a in these re Soia a Tatiana their life of id Lena a often Makei them loafers and gossips. I resolved to fall or. To Tea hotel keeper and pm master Asidao a had Baen an officer in the army Many years and Tell Jim my errand i did eos Navar waa secret better of pts and returned be if nothing had of rred. Toward evening Tea bar waa pretty fall and i took the it port Anity of aay Ilig publicly to or. To that waa Bat of work that i waa a Groom thut did not want to go on a station and aboard a glad of a Chunc Job. He at once told a to go to Hia Ata Blea and Tell Hia Foreman to Taka me on As an extra table hand gave or. To my Awag to Taka ca1p of it Oon Leinad my uniform and my authority trom Baad quartet a to act a a detect Iva he and Erawood All and that a Saffi giant As Groom i remained Here even Mont a a Able for a to do nothings Bat feeling win Enid More confident that the general a�8pioipii of just oven waa Well Foai de. Of Yourm i became intimate with him Bat Only in the evening when my work Wae done in All reef mate 1 acted a an Ordinary Groom receiving my weekly wage and carefully avoiding every thing that might Lead any one to suppose i waa any thing but a Groom. Of ten have i Lauffs de within myself As a mounted trooper Naa Ridden up and called me to Teke Hia borne and gave him a feed however i kept my own counsel and Little Light dawned upon my track. Over the never failing pipe i had frequent convere Tiona with Stevena about this old Man on each Occa Aiona he would generally fix Hia eyes upon the ground which give me the Opportunity to watch him the More narrowly. I could then see the Nervo a twit Binga of Hia fuse the biting of Hie lip and the sudden passing of Hia handkerchief across Hia brow which Oon Vinded me that he knew More of thie affair 4bf��l4id. Frequently the close of our Converse to main which Aleyene i making these unccfta6ktiiift? he would say a i Bate talking of Thia dismal subject lets have another Glaza. On Auch occasions he always raid a will shout you Are Only a Groom loan afford it better than you. Gradually be took to regular drinking morning noon and night he waa to be found at the bar. When soaked about Bis finances he had his answer ready he had sold his horse or an old mate had called and Given him some Cash. So Long As he a shouted Quot freely few cared where the Money came from. My eyes however were etes Dily fixed on Hia drinking habits As the Clew to my researches. Summer was now coming on though it was a late summer it was a regular hot australian one and in the course a few Weeke the Glenelg began to dry up and ita Long Chain of water holes to appear. Now was the time for uce ruining whether the remains of the old Man were to be found in any of the water holes in the neighbourhood of h a and one evening As i was talking to Stevens about this i said a you or i mfg a Well try and find the remains of Jeffrey a and to Lay claim to the government Rewa. I noticed this gave him quite a turn and although he tried to conceal it 1 Law that be trembled All Over and though generally very mild spoken be got quite angry with me and told me i might do what 1 liked but be was t so Tond of looking after dead men especially if they were murdered. I replied a no one said that Jeffrey was murdered you have always said he made Way with �?o1 thought so once but now the More i think Over the matter the More con nned i am that he was to to has to be proved Quot said i a and to prove it we must first find the remains and a the River dries up i have no doubt we shall find them in one of the toaster Hole near Hie hut. This was not exactly a guess but was a conclusion arrived at thus first Stevens was a alight built Man and supposing him to have been the murderer could not have carried Jeffrey far and secondly every one Knowe that murderers Seldom have nerve or forethought to carry their victims far from the scene of murder. As soon As i had said this he became very Pale and quickly said a a Well let s have a Robbier i can t stand this everlasting talk about a murdered Man. We had our Glass and parted for the night but my mind Wae already made up. Stevens beyond doubt wee the murderer and i must obtain the proof. I am not going to defend our code of morals. I admit that we often do evil that Good May come but society should not employ us to find oat dark crimes if they mean to condemn us for our questionable Methode of procedure. It was now late in july and the weather was intensely hot. It was surprising to see How rapidly the Glenelg Caa aed to be a River and How each Day the water holes became shallower and a allow or. Prompted by me or. To by twined from a neighbouring magistrate order for the police to examine every Waler Hole within a mile on either Side of old Jeffrey s hat. As soon As Thia waa known Stevens was Down at the bar trying i suppose to smother his a Emory in deep pot Tiona of whisky. Directly the mice commenced searching the River 1 discharged myself and having obtained Niy Check proceeded or pretended to spend it after the Asahal up country fashion which As every body knows Meana staying in the bar and shouting right off the real. Thie i did not exactly do i kept Only self sober a a judge behind the Acene i prompted evei7 thing through or.

Hia Thoa to were running on the murder and i re solved to us the Opportunity.

The next morning we were both brought before the mag # Istrate of the District charged m aforesaid.
