of warfare to him Gen'l Butler Would scarce be thought worthy to act as a sutler, And the insolent rebels will call to our faces The flight at Great Bethel the “New Market Races:” Then supersede Butler at once with whoever Can drive this Magruder clean into the river; And I shall be confident still to assert That the panic's fictitious, and nobody's hurt! 'Tis my province, perhaps, herein briefly to state The state of my provinces, surly of late, Missouri and Maryland--one has the paw Of my Lyon upon her; and one has the law Called martial, proclaimed through her borders and cities; Both are crushed, a Big Thing, I make bold to say, it is. St. Louis is silent and Baltimore dumb, They hear but the monotone roll of my drum. In the latter vile sea-port I ordered Cadwallader To manacle Freedom, and though the crowd followed her, Locked up in McHenry, she's safe, it is plain, With Merryman, Habeas Corpus, and Kane. And as for that crabbed old dotart, Judge Taney, For much I would put him
hief of the Missouri militia, on the one side, and Gen. Lyon and Col. Blair on the other, you have no doubt see Sunday morning the news came to Headquarters that Gen. Lyon, who commands the Federal forces in Missouri, was scertained that the report of the near approach of Gen. Lyon was false, the order to disband was rescinded-not,ly. Early Monday morning, it was ascertained that Gen. Lyon, who came up the river in boats, was landing his f With the intention, it is supposed, of surprising Gen. Lyon in the confusion of disembarking, the State troops the command of Col. Marmaduke, advanced to attack Gen. Lyon. But the Federal troops had already effected a la &c., all which, of course, fell into the hands of Gen. Lyon. The Federal troops took, in addition, about 40 pederal officers give them credit for bravery. General Lyon, with his command, entered the town about 12 1/2 F. P. Blair's regiment in the Thespian Hall. General Lyon came into our midst with considerable prejudice
received authentic news from the battle fought at Booneville on the morning of the 17th inst. Gen. Lyon, in command of 5,000 Federal troops, left St. Louis on the 15th instant for Jefferson City; art any resistance, where he left 2,000 of his troops, under command of Col. Boernstein, and he (Gen. Lyon) continued on to Booneville, 40 or 50 miles above Jefferson City. When arriving near Boonevilhat place, made a partial retreat, taking 1,000 of them, with which he thus succeeded in decoying Lyon and all of his men on land, save a few hundred on board the Iatan.

Gen. Lyon himself was captured, and six pieces of cannon and 800 stand of arms. The steamer Iatan, with the few hundred who were left on board, was shot to pieces, and s
A Crisp letter. Bro. Maslin:--I send you a five-dollar bill on a Missouri bank, which you will credit to my account. Alas, for Illinois! our money is nearly all dead in our pockets. You should have had all I owe you, but the rags died on my hands. If your own money is dead, bury it, and preach its funeral sermon, but do not charge the expenses to me, but to the Secessionists. I hope General Lyon will catch tory Jackson, and hang him on the first tree he comes to. Union men ought to arm themselves from head to heels, and shoot down every traitor they come to. If God will have mercy on me, I would rather die, than that this glorious Government should be overthrown. If we must be destroyed, I hope the Lord will do it, and not give us into the power of tories. The army worm is making a dreadful sweep of our meadows, wheat and corn. We are threatened with drought here. We have had no rain for four weeks. If the Union men need help to kill traitors, call on Illinois. We ca
