Friends, we are told by scientific men that this mundane sphere is constantly changing....We have been in your midst but a short time, but in this time have formed many pleasant acquaintances....Mr. Murphy, who has taken hold of the wheel, we have no doubt will turn it successfully. He has the ability and all that is lacking is the encouragement.... -- A. W. Robinson.

Murphy.
A. W. Robinson will, as soon as he can procure a suitable room, open up a news depot; will keep all the standard works of the day, as well as the principal magazines and periodicals published in the U.S.
Our editorial containing a summary of the four days trial of the state of Kansas vs. John E. Murphy is unavoidably left out. The proceeding will be published in full in our next issue, when our paper will be enlarged to full size.
Our subscribers will take notice that from...this date they will receive their paper on Monday instead of Saturday as heretofore.
