GALENA PORK AND GRAIN TRADE
"A friend who has taken pains to ascertain the figures, informs us that up to this time fifty thousand hogs have been bought in this city since the season commenced, forty-seven thousand of which have been packed here, and three thousand shipped east. During the same period the Grain trade has amounted to the round sum of one million two hundred thousand dollars. Pretty well for a "one-horse town."
FROM THE 96th REGIMENT
" Mr. John R. Taylor, of Co. A. 96th Illinois regiment, arrived in this city yesterday, having left Nick o' Jack Cove, Georgia , where his regiment has gone into winter quarters, on the 8th inst. He reports the health of the regiment excellent. He could think of only one man, Corp. SULLIVAN, of Co. F, on the sick list. The boys have built themselves comfortable log cabins, and are in fine spirits. The probability is that they will stay in their present location until spring."
FATAL ACCIDENT AT BENTON
"A friend at Benton, Wis., writes us that a boy named James WEBB, about 16 years of age, was accidentally killed on Tuesday, the 12th, in his father's diggings, one mile north of that place, by a tub of clay falling on his head. He had descended into the shaft, which was about 20 feet deep, and filled the tub, which his brother Thomas was in the act of hoisting, when the rope broke, letting the tub of clay down upon his head, killing him instantly. They were both industrious boys, and this sad accident, which has befallen one of them, has cast a gloom over the neighborhood. Their father is at present in California."
