fifty men, and the same number of horses,
reached this city from Fort Leavenworth,. en
route for Washington. This force is under
command of Capt. Armstrong and Lieut. Cole

well armed, and in high spirits at the prospect
of a fight with the rebels. Many of them car
ried small flags, which, they waved from the
car windows while passing the depot, and
cheered with great enthusiasm. They expect
to be, sent into Virginia immediately on their
arrival at Washington; _ • -

the same- rate from the place of his discharge
to his home, and in addition thereto the sum
of one hundred dollars. Any volunteer who

HANAKAN.Thia AND Hsnvser.—The hay crop
has all Men gathered and safely houned, and
although .not nearly so heavy as in previous
years) . all accounts agree that what it lacks in
quantity is made . up hi quality. The crop this
year is not only rich in saccharine patter, but
has been secured in the best condition, owing
to the favorable weather. The wheat and rye
will compare favorably with any farmer year,
and also •bids fair to be secured in good condi
tiozi. We have heard no complaints of the fly
from any part of the county. The oats is
somewhat backward. The corn and potatoes
also promise well. The season, altogether, is
regarded as a faVorable one for the husband
man, and will amply repay his toils during the
