.3 he War for the Union.
St. Locis, July 10.
A -special despatch from Cansas Ctty of
the Qih give particulars of a tight, taken
from the Fort Scott Democrat of the 7th
between the Missouri Slate troops, under
Gor. Jackson, and Gen. Rains, number
by their accounts, from 10,000 to 13,
000, and the United States forces under
Col. Seigel, numbering' 1,500 in all. Our
informant says, on Wednesday tne ord
inst.' the State troops left Rune's Point
and cored south of Munay's, six miles.
Friday morning at 8 o'clock thpy broke
up camp and marched South in the direc
lion of Carthage, the county seat cf Jas
per County. At Dry Fork, seven miles
north cf Carthage, they were met by
Col. fceigel witn 1,DUU men, whoimmedi
ately rare . them battle. The first onset
resulted in the State troops being driven
lack some distance and the officers order
fd a retreat. The center gave way, but
ihe crder not being heard on the flanks,
the advancing United States troops were
in danger cf being surrounded and they
themselves fell back. They retreated
slowly keeping up the artillery, making
tearful haroc among the enemie s ranks.
At the crossing cf Dry Fork their lines
were very near being broken, when by
the timely arrival cf 200 Union men from
Shcal Creek they crossed with but a loss
cf fire killed and two mortally wounded.
The battle continued, the United States
trocps alternately fighting and retreating
until dark, when they reached Carthage,
having crossed Buck Branch and Spring
River on their way. The fighting was
done with the artillery . Col. Sei?el re
As soon as the rebels got their's in
position and playing on his ranks as they
advanced. It is believed that Col.
Seigel's object was to draw the State
trocps on to Carthage where with 400 re
serve left at that place, and expected re
inforcements from Neosho and Sarcoxie,
he would be enabled, to turn and drive
Jackson's side was very great. Our in
formant states that he counted between
70 and 80 wounded on the field and in
the houses by the way side at Dry Fork.
A large amount of beef was thrown out
of the provision wagons, it is supposed to
make room for the dead. Another in
formant, a resident of CarthaSes, states
he passed over a part of the battle field
yesterday moaning, and says he saw wag
ons and hacks passing in every direction
gathering up the dead for interment.
The loss the part of the State troops can
not be less than from 300 to 500. The
ground in many places was strewn with
dead horses, and the stench was sickening.
The whole country was laid desolate;
fence? torn down, crops trampled tnto the
ground, and houses plundered. He met
parties of . women who stated that every
thing had been taken from them by the
State troops except what they had on
their backs. The retreat of the Federal
forces was conducted in a style worthy of
retran troops with as much coolness as on
the .parade ground instead of the battle.
It was only the overwhelming odds on
the side of the secessionists that enabled
me to carry the day. The victory was
really with Seigel.
It was reported that a night attack had
been made on Col. Seigel and 400 of. his
wen. killed and 600 taken prisoners and
three pieces of artillery captured, bui our
informant says he overheard a messenger
from the secession camp state that they
had killed but" one man after enteriDg
Carthage and had taken no guns.
. Jackson announced his .intention of
fortyfyingat Carthage until Price and
McCullock can arrive from Arkansas with
reinforcements, when he will turn and
and enferce the laws of the Stale.
- Col. Seigel retreated in the direction
of Sarcoxie where he expected reinforce
ments. Nothing can be heard from Major
Sturgis or Gen. Lyon.
Another account from Fort Scott, dated
July 7th, 8, p. ra., says a citizen of this
place has just arrived having left Sherman
Jasper county, Mo., at daylight this morn
ing. He states that after leaving Carth
age, . Col. Seigel oncamued two miles
soutn-east ot tne town wnere he was at
tacked in the eight and his command
t WW' B
raaiy cut up. His loss is vanonsly esti
mated at from 500 to 1,000 and that of
the secessionists from 1,000 to 2,000
killed and wounded.
Col. Brown with 3,000 troops' from
Springfieled is said to have joined Seigel
. aiai. sturgisisnorm or me usage, ana
.(.en. Lyon, at last accounts was at war
saw on his way south.
- On Friday Ben. McCulloch and Gen.
Price arrived at Nensho, twenty miles
routh of Carthage with 5,000 men. A
guard of 300 left there by Col. Seigel
was surrounded and taken prisoners.
One account says all were murdered
while another states that a small number
cf them were killed.
..McCulloch sent forward 2,000 men to
assist Jackson. He expects 5,000 addi
tional troops from Arkansas.

St. Locis, July 11.
John II. Bowen Esq., Agent cf the
.Hanibal and St. Joseph Railroad arrived
Lere at 11 o'clock this morning on the
'racket Divernon from Hannibal and
Iridgs the following intelligence: At
about two o'clock Wednesday morning a

The Federal troops although completely
surprised jumped to their artns and sue

rebel forces back killing four rounding
several others and cadturing five prison

of the 16th Illinois regiment was mortaly
wounded being shot through with five
balls. Some three or four others of the
Federal troops were slightly wounded.
While the fight was going cn at the camp

informant left Hanibal at 11 o'clock last
night. The rebels in full force had sur
rouded the Federal troops and were com

New York, July 11.
The Herald contains a special dispatch
this morning, stating that the arrest of
Col. Thomas by the new Union police of
Baltimore and has nipped in the bud a
scheme for the seizure of one of the
steamships leaving New York in the same
way thev captured the St. Nicholas but
others of the steamer pirates are at liberty.
The Secretary of w ar has finally de
cided to detain the officers captured in
Texas and discharged.
On parole for duty at Forts Kearney
and Laramie this duty will not conflict
with their oaths. Government intends
to send a sufficient force to these points
and others on the Overland route to fully
protect the mails and property of citizens.
Important information obtained is that
there has been a severe quarrel between
Lee, Letcher, Gov. w lse, Magruder, and
Roger A. Pryor. Jeff Davis was called
in to settle the matter and laid Gen. Lee
on the shelf. This enraged Gov. Letcher
who is still inactive and indifierrent to
the success of the rebels.
This information confirms a dispatch
that Lee had left the rebels and gone
to western Virginia raising a force to
sustain the Union. Jeff Davi3 not only
snubbed Gen. Lee, but against the pro
test of Gov. Letcher Magruder wes de
tailed to command the rebel affairs in
eastern Virgiaia. Gov. Wise to com
mand western Virginia and Gen. Beau
regard was assigned the command of the
centre column at Manassas.

Beverly, Va, July 12.
Yesterday morning, Gen. McClelland
ordered four regiments, the 10th and
13th Indiana, and the 19th Ohio, to pro
cede along the line of the hills southeast
of the enemy's entrenched camp, to the
Beverly road, where it crosses Rich Mt.
two miles east of the enemy's position,
with orders to advance along the Beverly
road and attack the east side of the works
Gen. McClellan being prepared to as
sault the west side as soon as firing an
nounced the commencement of the at
tack. The Captain of the. men, who mis
took the road through the enemy's camp
for that of our troops, placed the enemy
in possession of the movement.
When Gen. Rosencrans reached the
Beverly road, at 2 P. M., after a most
exhausting march over the mountains, he
found the enemy posted on the opposite
side of the road, about eight hundred
strong, with two cannon, holding a strong
position, partially fortified.
An engagement instantly took place,
and continued three-quarters of an hour,
uhen the rebels were totally routed, with
a loss of three hundred men, including
ten officers and both cannon.
About seventy-five killed and seventy
five wounded fell into our hands, and one
hundred and fifty other prisoners. The
road was between two hills. Our troops,
descending a steep declivity, were great
ly exposed to the fire of the rebels, who
occupied the opposite hill and poured
musketry, shot and shell upon them.
Gen. Rosencrans' column remained at
the place of the engagement during the
WAsniGTo, July 13.
The following dispatch was received
to-day at the headquarters from General
"The success to-day is all I could de
sire. We captured iix brass cannon, one
jof which is rifled, and c II the enemy's
of rebels at Wrights and Wersville

cumber of tents will probably reach two
hundred, and more than six hundred wa

his camp early this morning, leaving his

him back in great confusion. He is now
retreating to the roud io St. George.
Gen. Morris is to follow him up closely
I have telegraphed tn the two Pennsyl
vania regiments at Cumberland, lo join
Gen. Hill at Rowelsburg.
." The General is concentrating ail his
troops at Rowlesburg, and will cut off
Garrett's retreat near West Union, or if
possible at St. George. I may say that
we have driven out some 10,000 troops,
strongly entrenched, with a loss of oleven
killed and thirty-five wounded. Provis
ion returns here show Garrett's force to
have been 10,000 men. They were Ten
nesseans, East Virginians, Georgians,
and I think, Carolinians. To-morrow I
can give full returns as to prisoners, &c,
I trust that Gen. Cox has by this time
driven Gov. Wise out of the Kanawa val
ley. In that case I shall have accom
plished the object of liberating Western

OUR 3T X A. O.
Then np with oar flag I let it stream on the air !
Though our father are cold in their graves,
They had hands that could strike, the had son!
that could dare,
And their sons were not born to bo slaves 1
Cp, up with that banner 1 where'er it may call,
Our millions shall rally around ;
A nation of freemen that moment shall fall
When its stars shall be trailed on the ground.
We still hear men and papers talking
about compromise, and crying out agairst
every effort of the Government to sustain
itself and quell the rebellion; as a " war
of invasion, Jo svbjugah our Southern
brcihern and eradicate slavery." We are
tired of hearing such stuff.
It is well to refresh our memories with
acts of those who are now crying out
' let us alone11 and with whom some of
our Northern people even would have us
The first rebel convention was held in
South Carolina. With the speeches of
prominent men and leaders in that Con
vention the general reader is familiar;
but we copy the follow extracts in order
to perfect our point:
Mr. Parker. "It appears tome, with
great deference to the opinions that have
been expressed, that the public mind is
fully made up to the great occasion that
now awaits us. It is no spasmodic effort
that has come suddenly upon as, bui it has
been gradually culminating for a long
series of years1 until at last it has come lo
come to that point when we may say the
matter w entirely right.
Mr. Ikglis. "If there is any gentle
man present who wishes to debate this
matter, of course this body will hear him,
but as to delay for the purpose of discus
sion, I, for one, am'opposed to it. As my
friend (Mr. Parker) has said, most of us
have had this mailer under consideration
for the last twenty years, anrf 1 presume
we have by this time arrived at a decision
on ihe subject."
Mr. Keitt. "We are performing a
great act, which involves not only the stir
ring present, but embraces the whole
great future of ages to come. have
been engaged in this movement ever since 1
entered political life. I am content with
what has been done to-day, and content
with what will take place to-morrow.
We have carried the body of the Union
to its last resting place, and now we will
drop the flag over its grave."
Mr. Rhett. " The secession of South
Carolina is not ihe event cf a Jay. It is
NOT ANYTHING PRODUCED BY Mr. LlN
COLN'S. ELECTION, OR BY THE NON-EXECUTION
OF THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW.
has been a matter which has been gather'
ing head for thirty years; and in the pro
duction of this great result the great men
who have passed before us, whose great
and patriotic efforts have signalized the
times in which they lived, have not been
lost. Have the labors of Calhoun been
forgotten, when he declared a few years
ago for the secession of South Carolina?
and that secession would be the consumma
tion of their liberties?"
What next. The "Cotton States" hav
ing one by one followed South Carolina
in declaring secession ordinance, set
themselves at work stealing politely
called "seizing" all they could lay hands
on until, according to the report of the
Secretary of .War, "Revenue steamers
have been deliberately betrayed by their
commandefs, or, where treason could not
be brought to consummate the defection,
have been overpowered by rebel tioops at
the command of disloyal Governors. The
government arsenals at Little Rock, Ba
ton Rouge, Mount Vernon, Apalachicola,
Augusta, Charleston and Fayetteville; the
ordnance depot at San Antonio, and all
the other government works in Texas,
which served as the depots of immense
stores of arms and ammunition, have been
surrended by the commanders or seized
by disloyal hands. Forts Macon, Cas
well; Johnson, Clinch, Pulaski, Jackson,
Marion, Barrancas, McKee, Morgan,
Gaines, Pike, Macomb, St. Philip, Liv
ingston, Smith, and three at Charleston;
Oglethorpe Barracks, Barancas Barracks,
New Orleans Barracks, Fort Jackson, on
the Mississippi, the battery at Bieuvenue,
Dupre, and the works at Ship Island, have
been successively stolen from the govern
ment or betrayed by their commanding
officers. The custom houses at New Or
learns, Mobile, Savannah, Charleston, and
other important points, containing vast
amounts of government funds, have been
treacherously appropriated to sustain the
cause of rebellion. In like manner, the
branch mints at New Orleans, at Char
lotte, and at Dahlonega, have been ille
gally seized, in defiance of every princi
ple of common honesty and of honor.
The seizure of the United States Marine
Hospital at New Orleans was only want
ing to complete the catalogue of crime.
The inmates, who had been disabled by
devotion to their country's service, and
who there had been secured a grateful
asylum, were cruelly ordered to be re
moved, without the slightest provision be
ing made for their support or comfort. In
Texas, the large forces detailed upon the
frontier for the protection of the inhabi
tants against the attacks cf marauding
Indians were ignominiously deserted by
their commander, Brigadier General
Twicers. To the infamy of treason to his-
flag was added the crowning crime cf de
liberately handing over to the armed ene-
mies of hi3 government all the public
property entrusted to his charge, thus even
depriving the lojTal men under hi3 com
mand of all means of transportation out
of the State."
Still we are asked to compromise with
such men, after the commission of such
acts I How in Gods name can it be done
without becoming particeps criminis in
the treasonable operation against the
Government! It can't be done! To
treat, or compromise with such men under
present circumstances is treason.
When there was a time for compromise
we were among those who always advo
cated them; have always been for any
reasonable, honorable compromise or con
cession as to great issues that would tend
in the least degree to avert the most aw
ful of calamnities internal war. But
that time is passed ! The conclusion
is a terrible, frightful one indeed; yet
true, and we cannot escape it. The
rebels have forced the present unhappy
and lamentable condition of the country
upon us; the government must be
sustained and rebellion crushed. True
it may cost millions of treasure and mil
lions of valuable lives; yet they sink into
utter insignificance when compared with
our liberties. What are our fortunes and
lives without liberty ? Nothing! Better
be annihilated in a struggle for freedom
than to live under tyranny.
Kentucky All Right.
We extract the following from a pri
vate letter from a friend residing in
Louisville, Ky., of date July 7th:
"But little over a week since recruiting
jvas commenced here for a Regiment of
Kentucky Volunteers for Uncle Sam's
use. 800 are now encamped near this
city, and it is believed three or four Regi
ments will be raised in a very short time.
Kentucky already has two Regiments in
the field. There is no doubt but that the
President's call will yet be complied with.
The tide in Kentucky has turned strong
ly in favor of the Union. We sent Union
men to Congress from every District but
one. The Union majority in the State
was over 60,000. No fears need be en
tertained as to the loyalty of " old Ken-
Elder John Parker an old minister
of the Gospel, and one of the most promi
nent citizens of Atchison county, Mo.,
was driven from his pulpit on Sunday
last by secessionists in that county. He
was filling his regular appointment at a
point where he had preached regularly
for the past 6 years. He is a quiet,
kind, peaceable neighbor and christian
man, and his only offense was that of be
ing an unwavering Union man. Surely
there is a fearful retr bution in store for
those who thus trample under foot the
liberties of their neighbors.
The Nebraska City News is disposed to
"pitch in" to Acting Governor Paddock
with his hat off, in regard to our military
affairs not distributing the Regiment
&c. We are as anxious to have a portion
of the Nebraska Regiment south of the
Platte a; any one, and perhaps have taken
as active part to accomplish that end as
almost any one else. .We know Gov.
Paddock has been unremitting in his ef
forts to accommodate and serve the in
habitants of Southern Nebraska, and that
just so soon as he is empowered by the
War Department to act, we will be cared
If the News would turn its attention
to the ex-officials of its own party who
robbed the Territory of arms sufficient to
fully equip the 1st Regiment and half
the Home Companies, now without them,
there would be more "good sound horse
sense" in its howling. Suppose it under
takes to tell the people of Nebraska what
became of that $20,000 worth of Cavalry
arms, once drawn and deposited at the
capitc-1 in charge of certain Governors,
Secretaries and Librarians, not a dollars
worth of which is now there, or in the
hands of organized military companies
in the Territory.
"While it would be agreeable to our
friends in the bouth part of the Territory,
to have a portion of the Nebraska Regi
ment quartered among them, we do not
apprehend that their presence will be re
quired there for the purpose of quelling
any Indian outbreak, either actual or ap
prehended. Whenever they are needed
there, they will, undoubtedly, be promptly
The above is from the Omaha Repub
lican, and exhibits a degree of coolness,
and an amount of condescending liberality
that the people of Southern Nebraska can
not fail to appreciate ; feel hugely thank
ful for, and reverentially bow in acknowl
edging. It smacks very strongly of
either ignorance, impudence or character
estic selfishness perhaps all.
There is and has been for some time
past danger in Southern Nebraska, and
nothing but unabating vigilance and un
remitting labor has prevented serious
troubles. It may seem very pretty and
agreeable for the Editor of the Republi
can situated entirely "out of harms way"
to thus talk; but let him undergo what
many have in Southern Nebraska of late
and he'll " change his tune."
To our particular friend Wm. C. Mun
ger, Esq., of Louisville, Ky, we are
indebted for a splendid photograph like
ness of Maj. Anderson, taken since his
return from Sumter.
From Ft Scott
Benj. M'Gee, Esq., direct from Fort
Scott, and en route to Michigan, called
at our office last evening. He says that
on the 4th of July, some thirty secession
ists from Nevada, Mo., twelve miles east
of Ft. Scott, came into the neighbor
hood, made a descent upon the settle
ment and captured all their arms. Dr.
Jennison of Mound City with 30 well
armed union men, pursued overhauled
them re-capturing what they had stolen,
and also taking their horses.
