other preparations will be suspended, and the
troops which have been concentrated at Fort
Leavenworth and Jefferson Barracks will again
be distributed to their old posts. Vast expen
ditures have been made in getting ready for
i this expedition; but the supplies of provisions,
munitions of war, horses, and animals will not
, be lost to the Government, and a tremendous
draft. upon the Treasury will be stopped. The
early termination of this expedition will make
a material difference in all Mr. Secretary Cobbs
estimates for the demands upon the Treasury
for a year to come. It will make also a very
material difference in the calculations by in.
dividuals of their profits under contracts will,

to this disappointment. We take it as certain
also that the President will not avail himself
of the power given to him to call into service
the three regiments of volunteers authorized
by a law of the present Congress; and here
will be a saving at once of 54,500,000. These

the Treasury came moat opportunely, and IF ill
make, in the aggregate, a difference in the
year's expenditure of at least fifteen millions
of dollars.—Sf. Louis Republican.

have been the severest experienced in that sec

sick, and to all human appearances died. Grave
clothes were procured, and every preparation
was made for his burial, when lo I symptoms
of returning life appeared, and his attendants
for his interment ceased their arrangements.
After having lain in a trance for over an hour
without any perceptible motion of the heart,
lungs or pulse, he again returned to conscious.
ness and feeling, and is now going about, at.

that while he was in this state, he could hear
all that was going on, but was entirely unable
to speak or move. Here is another case for

night, fire was seen to issue from a stable of
James M'Kesson, immediately in the rear of

alarm being given, fire companies were .soon
on the ground, and succeeded in arresting the
flames before they had gained much headway.
After the fire was extinguished, a disgraceful
riot sprung up between the two companies,

were freely used, and cut heads and bloody no.

Tremendous Hail Storm.
We gave notice on Monday of the hail storm
that visited Fleming on Saturday the 12th.
The Hon. John L Brinkerhoff of Owasco, in.
forms us that the storm passed over that town
with great fury and doing great damage. In
Owaseo village the two churches were badly
damaged; in one over two hundred lights were
knocked out, and the building was very seri•
ously injured. Several small barns were taken
from their foundations; two or three dwellings
were unroofed, and orchards in many places
were uprooted. Fences were leveled, and in
one instance a heavf rail was taken up in the
strong arms of the storm and carried twenty
rods fr h in its former position. The storm on
Saturday was the heaviest that has visited this
county in years. [Auburn Advertiser.

Lancaster, York and Cumberland, and that
there are some members of :he gang within a
short distance of this placo, on the opposite

eighty pages, double columns, 12 cents each,

masterly criticisms of Blackwood, and the
lighter articles of Dieken's "Household Words"

dispensable to every library, is not enough ; it
is an essential to every intelligent finnily cir
