Ar i PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS Unanimously Adopted by the Davis County Un ion Convention, at Janction City, Oct. 3d, 1863. Whereas, Oar forefathers, in order to perpetuate civil and religious liberty, and to hand down, unimpaired, those blessings to their children, entered into a solemn covenant in the Constitution of the United States, to protect and defend it from in ternal and external foes; and whereas, this great charter of American liberty clothes the Chief Magistrate of the Nation with nil the power of the sword to protect and defend it, and the power to suspend the writ of habeas corpus, in order that traitors may not plot in our niidtt to overthrow it, therefore, Resolved, That we are not only in favor of the most vigorous prosecution of the war, but of sustaining the President's Proclama tion of Freedom to Slaves and to suspend the writ of habeas corpus, and every other measure calculated to strengthen the Gov ernment and bring the war to a speedy close.

S I) i )X n i a n . Junction City, Kansas, SATURDAY, NOV. 14, 1863. VOLUME THREE. The encouragement given The Smoky Hiix and BFruBLiCAvUxiox during the past two years has been sufficient to induce us to commence Volume Three. The newspaper business on the frontier is a dubious one ; and when a paper -weathers the troubles and trials of the frontier for two years, it may be considered as establish ed. We are further tempted to continue its pub lication, when we compare the support it has received with that which it will receive shortly, in consequence of the superior advantages of the great yalleys which, we may say, centres at this place. We may Bay it boastingly, ac will be allowed, that the Uniox appears better upon the npport of two hundred voters, than do papers hailing from counties casting four and five hun dred votes. This fact is sufficient encouragement in itself. W-e desire lo grow up with the country. A Railroad is pushing towards us as rapidly as possible. Our Salt Sprin...

ilfgwfc'. 3 -55? f rkttlfuiil ttinur. The Fall Planting of Fruit Trees. It is a question often asked, which is the best time to plant trees, the fall or the spring ? As a general rule, vre an swer fall. Ther arc some situations where it might be advisable to defer planting until spring, but on any land suitable for an orchard no injury will result from fall planting. In a heavy, wet, retentive soil, such an one as no intelligent planter would occupy with trees, it would sometimes prove destruc tive to trees on account of tne undue quantity of water about the roots ; but death to trees in such soil would be no loss, as they never would make healthy trees if they did survive. Fall plant ing, then, in soil suited to fruit, may be considered the best. In the fall, as a general rule, there is more time to de vote to thoroughly preparing the ground for the reception of trees and no man can afford to slight his trees in planting. Tree planting is one of the things that it is most profitabl...

4 OT u wMfiiral Column. Things that Farmers Should Know. Everything that tends to increase the profit of farming must directly or indi rectly benefit the farmer by raising the value of his land. Every 'effect has its cause, and there are unfortunately so many preventible losses in agriculture, that I propose one by one to enumerate them. Animals differ in no degree from our selves in the appreciation of a dry bed and a dry skin, a -warm corner in winter and a cool one in summer. How im ploringly will cattle and sheep stand at at the field gate in bad weather, when they know there is shelter for them else where. How quickly sheep will avail themselves of a wooden hurdle, a hard rqad, or even a wheelbarrow or a piece of board to lay upon, so as to avoid contact ;ith the wet ground: to them damp sheets. It is :i well known and admitted fact that a saving of one-third in food icsults from providing shelter when required. Add this gain, or de duct the 08 per cent of loss over fifty six m...

We have been aware for some time past that Mr. MclJratney held the view of the Constitu tion set forth in the aiticle, and have frequent ly urged him to make public his conviction upon the subject, but inasmuch as the weight of legal opinion, legislative opinion, Guberna torial opinion and newspaper opinion was committed in favor of the necessity of an amendment of the Constitution, he was reluct ant to do so. The aiticlo was finally written at our solicitation, and wc confess that we have marked with no little interest the effect' which its masteily exposition of the true intent and meaning of a rather foggy provision of- our State Constitution is having upon public op...
