St. Louis, 23, A. M. The steamer J.
C. Swan was seized yesterday 35 miles
below this city, by order Gen. Lyon of
the Arsenal. The reason of doing so is
because the Swan brought contrabrand
articles up from Baton Rouge to this city
a week or two ago. A company of U. S.
soldiers went down to Ironton yesterday,
by order of Gen. Lyon seized 5,000 lbs.
of lead and captured sixty prisoners who
had been engaged in shipping lead to the

prisoners were discharged, the rest were
brought to the arsenal. Shots were fired
by the prisoners at the soldiers, they re
turned the fire but nobody was hurt.
A gentleman, named J. D. Brown,
makes a statement in this

Thursday is unfounded.
A South Carolina Secessionist recently
from Va. by of Harper's Ferry reports
50,000 troops insufficiently armed, dis
tributed at various points with a view to
influence the election on Thursday. The
Virginians estimate the number at 60,-
000. From what he observed he believes
it is the intention to attempt to transfer
the battle ground to Penn., moving from
Harper's Ferry which in now strongly
fortified from all sides. Mr. Bailey Mc-
Elret from the Worcester, Mass. district,
has arrived from Enterprise, Florida,
where he spent the Spring mostly on ac
count of his health; He came via Savan
nah, Nashville and Louisville. He was
advised that it was impossible to come
through Va. Having met two men who
had been turned back. His party con
sisted of 30 including 6 Northern school
masters, other invalids and two army
lieutenants. At Atlanta his baggage was
search by a committee of the crowd.
Special attention was paid to the school
masters -by the troops, afterwards the
party divided. No passes were required.
He had no trouble in t lonaa or on tne
journey, ills invalidism was uis pruiei;-

where in motion towards Va., disciplined,
armed and equipped. At Chattanango
