September 9, 1870.

     Mr. A. J. Ryan, the Kansas excursionist, called upon us yesterday morning and represents the prospects as extremely promising for a large party on the 12th.

     A great many persons were disappointed yesterday on arriving in Liberty to find that on account of the weather, the exhibition was postponed until today.  The rain of the night before had put the ground in such condition that it was utterly impossible for horses to show their speed in the amphitheater.  Most of those who went from Kansas City adjourned to the town and took a survey of the surroundings.

     The school board met last evening at its rooms in the Diamond.  Present were Messrs. Sheffield, Bainbridge, Craig and Lester; absent, Karnes and Tobener.

     We are authorized to announce W. P. Twyman as a candidate for the office of justice of the peace of Kaw Township, subject to the action of the Democratic convention.

     Married on Thursday, September 8, at the home of the bride's brother in Clay County, by the Rev. Daniel Patton, Hon. Robert W. Mimys of Harlem, Mo., (late of Helena, Mont.,) and Miss Mattie A. Thomason.
