Sunday, June 12, 1870.

     Yesterday was sunshiny and showery alternately.  Business on the levee was lively.

     The Kate Kearney came in from Lexington yesterday afternoon, carrying sacks of flour.  The T. L. McGill arrived from Omaha last night.  She had on board 14,000 sacks of corn consigned to parties in St. Louis.  Quite a number of persons took passage on her.  The Silver Bow is expected this morning from St. Louis.  The river has swollen about two feet since yesterday morning and is still rising.

     Business was lively yesterday.  A large number of people were in town from the country round about, and the streets were crowded with wagons and pedestrians.

     Green fruits were plenty in the market yesterday and sold readily at extravagant prices.

     The News says that another lot of our prodigal thieves and vagrants have returned to the city.  Watch 'em.

     Immigration continues to pour through the city -- bound Southward.   Southern Kansas is fast filling up with good farmers and mechanics.

     Father Halpin proposes to have a 4th of July celebration.  The services of several celebrated speakers have been secured.  The German Evangelist congregation will give a picnic on the 4th of July at Helmrich's Park. We learn that a grand picnic is to come off on the 4th of July, near Lee Summit.

     La Rue's Minstrels are to appear in Kansas City, at Long's Hall, on the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 20th inst.

     Yesterday the body of an unknown man was seen in the river, and brought to shore by some fishermen who were engaged in their avocation near the bank of the river at West Kansas City.  The deceased appeared to be about thirty years of age, had on jeans pants, a shirt, and rubber boots, and had apparently been in the water some days.  The coroner was summoned and a verdict rendered in accordance with the above facts.  The body is thought to be that of one of three men who were drowned at Leavenworth on Tuesday last during a bridge disaster, and whose bodies the papers of that city state were not recovered.
