The Arrest of Col. Jennison


In a circular just published, General Sturgis says the arrest of Col. Jennison was the result of representations made by Lt. Col. D. R. Anthony, of his regiment and Col. Geo. W. Deitzler, his immediate commanding officer, and it was made at the earnest solicitation of the latter officer, who, in his appeal to me of the 15th inst., demands his immediate arrest, and charges him with the most grave and serious crimes known to military law.

Hiram Rich, an old resident of the West, and for a number of years sutler at Fort Leavenowrth, died suddenly yesterday of apoplexy.
