     A large number of residence houses are going up in Thomas's Addition.

     Horace Greeley is stopping at the St. James Hotel.

     Hon B. Gratz Brown speaks in this city next Thursday.

     Tomorrow several races will come off at the Driving Park.

     A Pullman palace car passed through the city yesterday for the Denver Road.

     Mr. Eaton of the firm of Tracy & Eaton, publishers of the "Guide to the Great West," was in our office yesterday.  The work is highly recommended and almost indispensable to those traveling westward.  Mr. Wright at the postoffice has the book for sale.

     Col. James Curtis, a prominent lawyer of Keokuk, Ia., formerly of Colorado; E. H. Rawlings of Kansas, also one of Colorado's pioneers, and Mr. A. Cassell of Lexington Ky., called on us yesterday.  All expressed themselves as pleased with our city.

     Mr. J. E. Munford of St. Louis, an extensive owner of real estate in this city and Kansas, is staying with his nephew, Dr. Morrison Munford.  We are pleased to welcome such gentlemen to our city, and while St. Louis would keenly feel the loss of such an estimable citizen, we nevertheless express the hope that he may make this city his permanent home.

     Omnibuses will run from the corner of Grand Avenue and Ottawa Street and the corner of Fifth and Main streets to Coates's Opera House before and after the performance.  Fare ten cents.
