December 6, 1870.

     The square was not as lively as usual yesterday.  The streets were well swept, before the besom of the wind.

     On Independence Avenue, Sunday night, a small and untenanted house was blown down.

     Twenty-one carcasses of antelopes were shipped over the B. C. & Q. R. R., yesterday, to one restaurant in Chicago.

     The steamer Mountaineer, on account of the openness of the weather, ventured out from St. Louis for this port several days ago, and was due last night.

     The rumor that George Francis Train is in the city, stopping at the Nelson House, lacks confirmation.

     Hogs are selling at 5 1/2 cents per pound and will be lower yet.  Packing is going on at our local establishments, quite briskly.

     Indian Commissioner Parker, in company with a number of other gentlemen, passed through this city  yesterday, from Washington, en route for the Indian Nation, to attend the council which is to discuss the sectionizing of Indian lands, with a view to individualizing their property therein.

     The night of Sunday was a fearful one.  The wind was "on a high," and all night long shutters banged to and fro, signs creaked as they swung violently about, every loose board clattered, and tunes were whistled through key holes and the corners of the houses.  Grown folks were kept awake all night by the noises that prevailed, and in some instances, by their fears, and the little ones cuddled up and trembled under the bed clothes, for at times the wind blew so strong that in many instances sidewalks were lifted and thrown into the middle of streets, signs, awnings and shutters were thrown down, and glass was blown out of windows.  On Grand avenue several large glass windows were blown out of the fronts of buildings.  Much damage was also done to show windows at the Garden City House and other establishments in the Addition.

     Earlier Sunday night, at the residence of Mr. Waldauer, quite a number of our  young Jewish friends enjoyed a pleasant party, the occasion being the betrothal ceremonies of Mr. David Loeb and Miss Henrietta Waldauer.  During the evening, Mr. L. H. Leon, on the part of the G. & H. Club, presented Mr. Loeb a set of resolutions of congratulation from the club, of which the latter is a member.

     Thomas J. Bigger, West Kansas, received another car load of buffalo meat yesterday afternoon, and is selling it at the low price of five cents per pound.

     $10 reward.  Martin Keck, proprietor of the Gem Billiard Hall, on Grand Avenue, offers the aforementioned reward for the return of his gray pony.
