gated, and in some instances openly proclaimed,their purpose to confer official honors and emoluments and peculiar privileges upon a certain set of men separate from the community: to restrict the right of suffrage to a few, and to substitute a life tenure of public office for the term fixed by law. They have practically annulled the cardinal axiom of popular government and initial declaration of our Bill of Rights, that all political power is vested in and derived from the people only. Wherefore, from these tyrants and public enemies we now dissever ourselves, socially and politically, forever. And with a full and lively sense of the responsibilities which our action devolves upon us, and reverently invoking the aid and guidance of Almighty God, we pledge to each other, for the maintenance of this solemn compact, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

Doc. 86. capture of Linn Creek, Mo. Official report of Major Wright. Headquarters Fremont Bat. Cavalry, camp McClurg, Oct. 15, 1861. General: At seven o'clock, on the morning of 14th, my command left Camp Grogus, in advance of the column, in the following order: A detachment of thirty men, well mounted, from Company A, five hundred yards on the extreme right; five mounted sentinels at the respective distances of one hundred yards from each other, reaching back to the head of the column ; twenty scouts, each on the right and left flanks, to march in line with the head of the column with instructions to allow no one to pass forward or ahead of the column. Then we moved forward, feeling our way, without any incident worthy of note until half-past 11 o'clock, on our arrival at Alex. Berry's, five miles southeast of this place. I then learned that there was no doubt but that Linn Creek was occupied by rebel forces, and rumor said that two thousand had arrived the day before
Doc. 88. burning of the Big River Bridge. October 15, 1861. The St. Louis Democrat, of October 17, contains the following circumstantial account of the destruction of the Big River bridge: Mr. Fred. Kling, United States Mail Agent on the Iron Mountain Railroad, who reached this city from below yesterday morning about three o'clock, gives us the following particulars of the burning of Big River bridge, and the condition of affairs at Pilot Knob and along the railroad. Mr. Kling left Pilot Knob on Tuesday morning, on the regular train, at nine o'clock, the regular time of departure. On reaching Mineral Point, a station a few miles above Potosi, they got news of the attack upon the guard at the Big River bridge, and the burning of the bridge by a large force of rebels under Jeff. Thompson. The news was brought to Mineral Point station by a number of wounded soldiers belonging to the force of forty or fifty men which had been stationed at Lawson's, a few miles above, and which
even very insufficiently, for watching the Potomac and guarding the communication with Baltimore, there would not have been left more than 45,000 effectives for the garrison of Washington and active operation. Certainly not 10,000 of these troops were in any condition to make an offensive movement, nor were they sufficient in numbers to furnish an active column which would give the slightest hope of success after making even a small provision for the safety of the capital. On the 15th of Oct., 1861, the troops under my command present for duty numbered133,200 Of these there were unarmed and unequipped12,000    121,200 Deduct one-sixth for extra — duty men, etc.,20,200   Total effectives, without regard to instruction,101,000 Gen. Dix was charged with the defence of Baltimore, occupation of the east shore, garrison of Fort Delaware, the communications to Philadelphia, and the immediate approaches to Baltimore, including Annapolis.
