     "East Lynne" at the opera house tonight.

     A. Sumner & Co., dealers in Wheeler & Wilson sewing machines, pianos and organs, have removed to 1123 Main Street, about one square above the Junction.  They now occupy one of the fine large rooms in Swope's new building, which has been fitted up and furnished for them.  The business is under the management of our esteemed friend, C. D. Hank.

     The river is falling slowly.  The Mary McDonald arrived from St. Louis Sunday heavily laden with merchandise for our merchants.  The Kate Kearney arrived the same day from St. Joseph and passed on up to Lexington.   The W. J. Lewis came up from St. Louis yesterday morning with a large party of emigrants, wagons, household goods, etc.  The Mountaineer of the Star Line is due tomorrow from St. Louis.

     Hon. J. M. McMichael of Plattsburg, Clinton County, was in the city yesterday.

     Professor Galloway's hop which was to have been last night has been postponed until Friday evening.

     Next Monday evening occurs one of those delightful affairs engineered by our Catholic citizens. It is gotten up for the benefit of Father Halpin's Church, and, as always has been the case, we may expect a perfect success.

     A perfect sea of mud last night was the result of the rains of the previous twenty-four hours.  Notwithstanding this, the attendance at Coates's Opera House was fair.  The play was "The Lady of Lyons," one of the best pieces that has ever appeared upon any stage, and altogether the company performed it not only in a creditable, but in a superior manner.

     Six weddings a week is about the average in Olathe.
