4. the Georgetown battle. I had a dream the other night, When sleeping snug and nice: I thought I saw an awful fight Between our folks and Price> With pen and paper in my hand, Near Georgetown, there I stood; I never had described a fight, But thought I quickly should. I saw an army from the West, On stolen horses come-- Jus But ere she made a close approach, The Rebels all had gone. Just then I saw a Chief in sight, With firm and steady gait, And knew that he would end the fight, If Price would only wait. Ere now, his train, and staff, and guard, Would have surrounded Price, Had they not had to toil so hard With bergs of rolling ice! I thought a send the fight, If Price would only wait. Ere now, his train, and staff, and guard, Would have surrounded Price, Had they not had to toil so hard With bergs of rolling ice! I thought a shower struck my head From an iceberg streaming; I ‘woke, all shivering in my bed, And found I had been dreaming. St. Louis Evening News, Oct. 15
when you is about, we is. --The Booneville correspondent of the Cincinnati Daily Commercial writes: These Missouri niggers know a great deal more than the white folks give them credit for, and whether Missouri goes for the confederacy or the Union, her slaves have learned a lesson too much to ever be useful as slaves. I was struck with the apt reply of one of a crowd who came from a big house to the road to see us pass the other day. Says I: Boys, are you all for the Union? Oh! yes, massa, when you's about we is. And when Price comes, you are secesh, are you? Lor, yes, massa, we's good secesh then. Can't allow de white folks to git head niggers in dat way. The darkeys understand the whole question and the game played.
n in hand, hiding in the brush, saw the cortege, and supposed it a Federal wagon-train, poorly guarded, and hence an easy as well as legitimate prize. Reasoning thus, Secession walked from the brush, presented its shot-gun, and demanded a surrender, which demand was instantly met by fifty men rising from the wagons, presenting a row of glittering muskets, and requesting a similar favor of astonished and now mortified secession. Secession generally complied, and worked off its ill-humor by cursing such mean Yankee tricks, unknown to all honorable warfare, and unworthy all chivalrous hearts. In this way many a petulant rebel was confounded, and in two cases, where fight was preferred rather than surrender, two rebel sons of chivalry bit the dust, from the effects of Minie bullets, which left canister-like auger-holes clear through their heads. Before his return, Major Hovey captured a large number of prisoners, and burnt one mill, which was grinding for Price.--Cincinnati Gazette.
A Scouting Adventure.--The following account of the capture of Brig.-Gen. Price, and other rebel officers, is from an authentic source, and corrects some errors in the statement heretofore published. On Saturday, Capt. J. D. Thompson, our Acting Major, with parts of four companies of the First Iowa cavalry, numbering one hus of the Sixth Iowa Infantry under Capt. Stubbs, started from Sedalia in pursuit of some five hundred rebels, who were making their way to join the main body under Price. Starting at sun-down toward Clinton, they learned about midnight that the rebels instead of coming to that place had taken the road toward Belmont, and thereforeof the rebels broke and fled. Major Thompson, being unable to cross the river in time to make a successful pursuit, returned to Sedalia with his prisoners, whom he brought to St. Louis on Thursday, on their way to Alton. They were Brig.-Gen. Price, Col. C. Dorsey, Major Cross, and Capt. Inge. Louisville Journal, February 26.

Chorus.--If you will join the Dixie band, etc. Old Abe has got into a trap, Old Abe has got into a trap, Old Abe has got into a trap, And he can't get out with his Scotch cap.

Chorus.--If you will join the Dixie band, etc. We'll drink this toast to one and all, Keep cocked and primed for the Southern call; The day will come, we'll make the stand, Then we'll be free in Maryland.

ifest in the Women's Gunboat, we venture to inform you that the patriotic ladies of Tuskegee desire to be represented in the enterprise that has for its object the protection of their dearest rights. With this view they have canvassed the community, and have secured cash subscriptions to the amount of $303.95, together with a donation of three bales of cotton. Other subscriptions are promised, and will doubtless be procured. These contributions have been made with the understanding that the money is to be appropriated to the construction of an iron-clad gunboat for the defence of Alabama. The amount is on deposit with the Tuskegee Insurance Company, subject to order when the enterprise shall have received such substantial encouragement as to place the matter beyond contingency. We would be pleased to open correspondence with the responsible originators of the project. Respectfully, etc., Miss M. Sinclair, Miss T. Graham, Miss E. Swanson, Mrs. Elizabeth Price. Miss F. Swanson,
f letters. Quite a crowd gathered to witness the departure, and we saw several eyes "unused to weep," shed tears of sorrow when bidding adieu to their friends whom they "might never see more." The boat moved off amid the waving of handkerchiefs by those on the boat and wharf. We append a list of those who went off: Mrs. Margaret Swift, Miss Wright, Mrs. Weerdorn and children, Mrs. Evans, Mrs. Zelena Barclay, Philip GeBault, Mrs. C. Bennett and four children, Miss Annie Bennett, Mrs. Elizabeth Price, Mrs. M. A. Wilson and children, J. A. Eyster, H.

One of our men, taken prisoner at Hatteras, was brought to Old Point, and came up last evening in the flag of truce.--While our flag of truce was at the Point, several ladies and gentlemen arrived in the steamer from Baltimore. One of the gentlemen had been imprisoned for some time in Fort
out to be entirely false, and at last accounts, Colonel McDonald was on the look out for the Hessians. The Central train, yesterday, brought down four prisoners late of the Fourth and Eighth Ohio regiments who were captured at New Creek, in Hampshire county. The officer in charge stated that there was a Federal force at that place, but at no other point on this side of the upper Potomac. It was positively stated yesterday that the War Department received an official dispatch from General Price on the previous evening, giving a statement of the result of his great fight at Lexington. Missouri, as follows: 4,000 Federals killed and 7,000 taken prisoners: from 3,000 to 4,000 horses captured, and three hundred and fifty thousand dollars in gold; Confederate loss, 800 killed. On inquiry, we ascertained that no such dispatch had been received. The Department received a telegram from Memphis, based upon the Northern account of the battle, which admits a decisive victory for the Con
capable of containing a force of 10,000 men. The main body of the army of Gen. Price was located at Old Lexington, from which point the attack was made, though th skirmish on Thursday of last week with a party of rebels — not, however, under Price at the time — who sheltered themselves in the houses in Old Lexington. To depren. As to their supplies of provisions and ammunition, little was known. Gen. Price's strength is not ascertained, but may be put down anywhere between 15,000 anthe last attack they were busily engaged in burying their dead. Latest.--Gen. Price had, on Saturday, 14th, given Col. (Acting General) Mulligan until Monday to surrender, or take the alternative of battle. The object of Gen. Price was not so much in giving the Union troops a chance to surrender as to enable Gen. Rains and hGreen and others, all of whom were marching from various sources, to join him.--Price's force must, therefore, have been enlarged to about 17,000. In the commenceme
