AVl.tu the jrain stopped we could not, on
nV.-count of damage to eornc part of the
rnm;in;r n.ithin'Ty, draw the train out of
the fire, the engine leging in the rear.
We left the cars and retired to the right

we retired dowly, bearing off our tyound

The enemy did not pursue.
I have ascertained that the enemy's
force at Fairfax Court House, four miles
from Vienna, is now about 4,000. When
all the enemy's batteries opened upon us,
Major Hughey was at his 6tation on the

rumored fight at Boonville, Mo. The ac

wo here present to our readers, by which
it will be seen the traitors were "routed

of rebels, Claib Jackson left for parts un
known: Jrirtasojr Citt, June IS.
. Boonville was taken by the Feberal
troops' after a short but sharp cannonade;
that tho loss on the part of the State
u wy-t was uuuui inrce hundred, to twcxity
or thirty on the tide, or the Federal
troops, and that Gov. Jackson has fled.
Jefferson City, June 18.
Tho United States troops, under Lyon,
took a position near Boonville and opened
a brisk cannonade on the enemy. After
a Miort time, the State troops rctrcatod m
good order from the city, and scattered
themselves in companies through tho ad
joining woods for the purpose of carrying
on a gucrilliu warfare. Lyon seeing the
movement, ojdered a hasty retreat to the
steamboat, which had the effect of calling
the State troops out into the open field,
and collecting them for a united attack.
As foon as tney were all drawn up in
tank and file in the open field, Lyon com
manded his troops to advance m double
quick time and form into line in front of
the enemy, taking all their cannon with
them. lie then opened a murderous fire
on. the State troops, which had the effect
of confusing and dispersing them in a
very few minutes. They lied in every
direction, leaving over one hundred dead
on the battle field. Governor Jackson
witnessed the affair about a mile distant,
end seeing the result, fled in a carriage.
General Price had previously been taken
tick and was unable to participate in the
management of the battle. There is
great rejoiceing over the news just now
nt tbo headquarters in this city. A wag
on load of powder was to-day discovered
ly the l S. troops on Christy Watson's
farm, three miles from here, and hauled
away to the headquarters. It forms part
of the powder secreted ly the State
troops five or six weeks ago.

JtrrERsox City, June IS.
Lest there should be any misapprehen
sion among the people in regard to the
condition of the State Government, I will
state the following, facts: All the depart
ments of the State Government have been
sealed or are about to be sealed. The
Auditor's clerks will proceed to po?t the
1As of hii department without molesta
tion. ' The Treasurer has, in the presence
of several prominent citizens and the
commander of the place, deposited all his
bouk papers, &.C., in the safe, locked
and scaled it and then surrended it to the
cuKody of Col. Boerr.stein, taking the
key? and seal with him. This was done
with a view to avert all sy?p:cion that the
United States troops had uoc'uly inlet fer
td with the State Government.
Mr. Mcrritcn, Slate Treasurer, was
arrested at Hermann and brought to this
city as a prisoner. No money was found
upon him and he was rcleait-d after the
trraiiement aiove reierrcu iu xau
consummated. Capt. Jefferson T. Isers,
Paymaster cf the South Wcit Expedition,
was also arrested : his trunk wa3 search-
1 r . . I . ln. I C'fi CiC irt in
drafti end checks of the Sutr. On be
ing aiked what he proposed to do with the
money, he taid it wa3 intended for the
payment of the Southwest Expedition.
It was then proposed that some one be
chosen who should see that the money
arrhed for tnat purpose ana none
other. Both parties agreed upon the
Hon. Thomas L. Price. Mr. Price's con
sent was obtained, and he took all the pa
pers, drafts, &c, of Captain Rogers, who
will proceed to distribute the ready money,
under the act cf the Legislature, for the
paying cf the Southwest Expedition, in
company with Mr. Price. Captain Rog
ers was thereupon released.
Upon examining the papers. Mr. Price
found there was a check for S15.00 on
the State Bank of Missouri, and that the
remainder of the money wa.sin warrants.
Of course the warrants cannot be convert
ed into ready money for the present. In
regard to the check, Mr. Price aicertain
ed from the State Treasurer that he had
executed it at a time when there was on
ly about 87,000 in the bank, thereby
nominally overdrawing to the amount of
88,00. He at once prevailed upon the
Treasurer to take up his own check and
five him 615,000 in Missouri bank bills.
These 815,000 will be applied to the pay
ment of the men who va!nnteered in the
Southwest Expedition,. the expenses for
outfits, Sec, being considered next in order,
and having to be defrayed cut of the war
rants above referred to.
As soon as Capt. Rogers has his books
arranged, Mr. Price will proceed to satis
fy each claim, and it may be well to sug
gest that no volunteer need henceforth
sell his claim for fear it should not be
paid. I understand that there are about
810,000 in the Fayette Bank to the credit
of the Treasurer, a circumstance wnich
corroborates the statement of Mr. Mor
rison when he was arrested, namely,
that he had in all about 875,000 in the
Insnrrcctlon at the Pcnitcntlarr-
Attempt of Prisoners to Escape. Three
or Four Insurgents Shot.
Jiffebson Citf, June 18.
A desperate attempt was made this af
ternoon by the prisoners in the Peniten
tary to b'reak the walls and force their
way out. They had all dined together
as usual in the hall, and were about io
be conducted to their respective cells by
the guards, when, by some previously
concerted plan, they rushed upon the lat
ter and completely suddued them, lhey
then poured out into the prison yard and
commenced breaking a hole in the wall,
when they were discovered by the soldiers
stationed without, who instantly gave the
alarm. In less than ten minutes four
companines of United States troops had
arrived at the spot. They encompassed
the prison, sealed the walls, and shot
downone of the convicts who was about
to force himself through the hole. Two
or three others were wounded. After
which they were all driven back at the
point of the bayonet into their cells and
secured. Not one escaped.

A special dispatch to the Commercial

other stores destined for the secession

conviction here that the rebeli are out

This morning the rebels were concen

for that bully rain last night.
The War and SLucrj.
The rebels and their sympathizers have
ever been busy asserting that the effort to
sustain the Government is a war against
slavery ! They have redoubled their
howling since negroes like other property
are considered contraband when found or
met as belonging to rebels or disloyal
Stated or communities. All who have
watched at all the progress of affairs can
not fail to see that that there has been a
studious effort on the part of the Admin
istration, if you please, to avoid a perver
tion of the war for the Union from its
avowed legitimate and essential purpose
into a crusade against the "peculiar insti
tution." General Butler took an early
opportunity to inform the people of Mary
land, when a negro insurrection was fear
ed, that his duties were to suppress insur
rection and rebellion of what ever kind,
and that his aid if needed, to suppress the
negroes could be relied upon. The in
stances are without number almost in
Virginia, Kentucky and Maryland of
negroes who escaped from loyal citizens
being promptly returned by the military
authorities. W'hile this has, is and will
continue to be the -course, slavery must
not get in the way ; nor must the armies
in defense of our country be expected to
become police officers whose particular
duties are to look up runaway slaves.
The advocates of slavery have always
contended that slave property should be
considered in all respects precisely as all
other property. Very well. If our ad
vancing armies come into possession by
conquest, surprise voluntary delivery or
otherwise, of horses, cattle, provisions
munitions of war, or any other species o
property, the appropriation is legitimate
So it should and will be with negroes.
While we reiterate that it is not the
object of the North even, in the attempts
to sustain the Union to interfer with the
institution of slavery, men who have a
moiety of brains cannot fail to know that
one of the legitimate results of this war
if protracted any length of time, will be
not only to interfere with and cripCe sla
very, but to wipe it from the face of the
earth. Heretofore men of all parties
North or South, whether advocates for or
against slavery, have felt legally and
morally bound by the constitutional guar
antee to slavery, as the law of the land
The opponents even of the institution
have always regarded it as a moral evil
All these, together with thousands North
and South who have cared nothing about
It as a moral ao; e? en, will now ad
vocate its extermination, because it has
ever been the source of all our troubles,
and its existence continually endangers
our national safety. This is undoubtedly
a growing sentiment in all classes who
desire the perpetuity of the Union. It
is the promptings of self-preservation.
The war if ended to-day, has cost the
country in dollars and cents more than
the cash value of every slave in it, to say
nothing of the loss of life, destruction of
internal improvements and the general
ruinous prostration of all branches of busi
ness. To leave the question unsettled is
but to bring about every few years a like
disastrous state of affairs, and in the end
annihilate us as a nation, and hurl us as a
people into utter and irredeemable dark
ness. This we believe is a rapidly grow
ing feeling in the minds of the masses of
More About (he Indians.
By referring to this matter again, we
hope no undue excitement will be created.
Our object i3 to arrouse our people to a
thorough preparation for any emergency.
Being thoroughly prepared, we will not
likely be molested to any serious extent.
Every day's experience and informa
tions confirms us in the belief that the
principle portion at least, of the Regular
Military force now in, and being muster
ed into service in Nebraska, should at
the earliest practical moment be station
ed in the southern portion of the Terri
tory. Since our last issue we have had
a long and detailed interview with Hon.
yo. P. Bakes, present agent for the
Otoe and Missouri Indians, who was in
our place last week, direct from the res
ervation. Of course we are not impru
dent enough to blazon forth in print the
particulars obtained from Mr. B. and
others. Suffice it to say, our statement
made last week, as to a general confer
ence of western Indians being now held
n the Cherokee country, and without
doubt under the immediate supervision of
the Southern sessesion rebels is fully con
firmed. The Indians near us, have be
come unusally saucy and impudent ; ma- ingtcn.
king many mysterious trips here and
there ; are visited by strange looking In
dianswhite men attired a la red man
and many other evidences of trouble a
head, we might mention. In our opinion
there is but one effectual and sensille
way, under all the circumslinces of treat
ing this slate of aflairs, and that is to
"n:p it ia the bud." All who have any
knowledge whatever cf western Indians,
knoiv them to be treacherous at anytime;
not to be rustcd to any extent under any
circumstances, much less now.
The plan of the Southern rebels no
doubt, 'is to concentrate at some given
point west cf the settlement, all the In
dians they can obtain and organize them
for guerilla purposes, either to go into
the States, or harrass the western settlers.
We hereby return thanks to our friends
in various portions of the Territory
especially in the middle and western por
tion of this Land District, for their suc
cessful efforts in extending the circulation
cf the Advertiser, of late. Hard as the
times are, it is gratifying us to have our
subscription list increase more rapidly
than at any other lime for years. During

endeavour to make the coming volume
more interesting and valuable to its pa
trons than any previous one.

showing the strong bold they have ur'n tne pnMlc con

mainly out of use, Fairbanks' have grne steadily for

The St. Joseph Gazette has about flz
zled out, as it oujht to have done month
ago. It has done more to not only injure
but kill, St. Joseph than all other agencies
combined. It proprietors, northern men
by birth, education and interests, became
not only pro-slavery, but secession trai
tors in the extreme, and have labored
faithfully for the destruction cf a city to
which they have heretofore been indebt

valadictory of the retireing proprietors
which appeared in print after the writer
had left the city, is the lowest and must

its denunciation of Gov. Stewart, editor
of the Journal.

the federal authorities, did we preach
downright treason in its blackest form, or
pursue a course scandelously at variance
with every dictate of order and propriety,
yet our right to do so would remain intact,
so long as the American constitution stands
as it is. Our only punishment as public
Journalists, would be in public opinion and
the Joss of influence over it."
So would your "right remain intact" to
