     We have had another spell of pleasant weather.  We hope that it is not too pleasant to last.

     Don't forget "Nasby," at Frank's Hall, to-morrow night.  Breunert & Wocher have a few reserved seats left.

     The Democracy had a pow-wow at Vaughn's Diamond last night.  Speeches were made, the usual quantity of whisky consumed, and the Democracy adjourned.

     Kansas City needs a new Court House.

     The News reports that a child of Mr. Foster, of the JOURNAL, was on board a wrecked train on the North Missouri Railroad, was, like the rest of its article on that affair, wholly false.

     Four parties were fined for drunkenness in the Recorder's Court yesterday, and one party paid $10.75 for allowing his tongue to outrun his discretions; in other words, for using abusive language.

     Don't forget to go and hear the immortal Petroleum. V. Nasby's lecture, at Frank's Hall, to-morrow night.

     The dramatic section of the Kansas City Turnverein will give a masquerade ball at Turner's Hall, to-morrow evening, that the managers intend shall be the most pleasing and enjoyable of the season.  Our German friends thoroughly understand how to make a masked ball successful and pleasant to all, and we think that of next Monday evening will not prove otherwise.  Tickets of admission are placed at the low price of $1.
