This evening, General Blunt came in accompanied by Mr. Tough, who, with six or eight men, had been following Quantrell on his retreat all the afternoon, and report that he crossed the Neosha at the Fort Gibson road, and went south.

After striking out the words "in the streets," the amendment to the ordinance was adopted; said ordinance to go into effect on and after the 1st of November.
