News from Pike's Peak.

Fort Kearney, Nov. 17.--The Western stage coach, which left Denver on the 12th inst., with a full complement of passengers, the mails, the messenger of Hinckley & Co.'s express and $11,000 in treasure, passed here at an early hour yesterday, bound for Omaha, but by some mistake the telegraph package for this office was not handed in until this morning.-- By it we have the following Denver City rates:

The Denver Mountaineer extra of the 11th last, says: ‘"The Western stage coach reached here at half past 2 o'clock on the morning of the 10th inst., bringing Hinckley & Co.'s messenger, with a single dispatch containing all the presidential election returns received at Fort Kearney by telegraph up to the evening of the 11th inst. By private correspondence we learn that this news reached Denver and was published and started six hours ahead of that taken out by the Pony Express. ’
