Fourth Pag*. o a N o i o n i n n e o u n *4m ll \M1 Lutrr. J. P. Skei.ton, at Home.—WE 4ad the pleasure on Monday evonin-j to wel Some the return of Lieut. J. P. Skelton to -UiJMs home in tbii city. The history of this *"f,Joonj5 officer, who left us orer two years •go in the 17th Infantry, more a ro *S ioance than a reality. Particimtin in the ill battles of Tuka, tvro battles at Oo-inth, an'! ^||t the despomte fight at Jackson, he there -eAlras wounded, by a ball passing entiielv through hi* head.nnt»rin'»the ri?ht eye and #«fassing out behind the left ear, taken pris- v",^jner, and Anally incvcerated In Libhey prison, Richmond, whore he wna'nHj over tight months. On the 11th of December in '.-Uiompany with a fellow prisoner, Capt. An #etson, he escapsd ard made his way to th® •'»^(Jnion lines and to Washington, when- he 'kM been under treatment for hi3 eve, pre paratory to the insertion of an artificial one. The h*ir-breath escapes of Lieut Skelton from death in battle an,d from prison, invest v®^|im with a romintic interest and endear %ira to every patriotic heart. We are re- biced to see him alive, and t« know that lave the loss of his eye, his general hialth jj:j|s gocd. Many deaths he suffered, and in •dignities more painful ^han death, but he is v.^et the saot* Jack Skelton he used to be, mis confidence in the good cause increased, ^'4ii courage confirmed, and his determina­ tion to see the end of the rebellion an un Changeable purpose. He informs us tt^t it |s bis purpose to return to the army. Dm. Want is Coming.—An advertisement Iras published in this paper fr about a |rear, annonncing that Dr. D. K. Weir, late %f Pennsylvania, now of Toledo, Tama Co., Jrould visit Ottumwa from December 24th to ^he 87th of that month, 18ft3. The adver jiseraent It seems was inserted by a friend Dr. W- without his knowledge, and con irfqoently he did not keep his appointment. n^loca that time the Dr. has received nttme -^f-oaa letters from persant residin here and ^|jn this region, stating that they had read his i^advertisement in the Courier, and attended Stlbere at the time named to oonsult hiin, but |rijr«re rati oh dissapointed not ftndin? him Dr Weir called an us on Mon ay, •^xpre^se^regret at the dissapoirU'iient ooca lonod by his failure to ke^p the appoint tent mvie (v hin\. paid us for his adver tisement like a gentle nan as we believe him J»*e, made another appointment for jlnne Ut to the 7th next as will be seen by ^efarenc* to his advertisemen in another ^jjpoluiuTi.
