"The Charming young Jessie." --Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont has taken the field in defence of her husband. Many think she is the better General of the two. Thus far, at least, she has shown decidedly more energy than the real General; for, while he was suffering McCulloch to beat and kill Lyon, and Price to capture Lexington and recover all the money he had stolen, she was carrying the war into the very White House at Washington, calling Old Abe to account, bearding (if the expression be proper of a lady) the old lion of Silver Spring, and his whelp of St. Louis in their respective dens, and kicking up a great fuss generally all over the Western country. She has established her own fame, and settled the status of Fremont for all time to come.--Hereafter he will be known as Jessie Benton's husband, just as a distinguished Philadelphian was known as the man who married Fanny Kemble, and as Coldschmidt is still known as the husband of Jenny Lind. No matter; he is no worse off th
amble from Herman, saying that he was compelled to surrender his camp, with 400 men with three cannon, to superior force. Union men from Lexington, Mo., deny that there has been any session of the Missouri Legislature recently held there. Fremont left Jefferson City on the 7th inst., in pursuit of Price. It is reported that he expected to concentrate at Sedalia not less than 35,000 men and 100 pieces of cannon. Gen., Price, it is reported, has directed his course to the South. amble from Herman, saying that he was compelled to surrender his camp, with 400 men with three cannon, to superior force.

From Missouri. Memphis, Oct. 15. --The St. Louis Republican, of the 10th instant, has reports from Lexington, Mo., that McCulloch was at Johnstown, with Price's army, which was marching on Sedatia, where Zeigle has 27,000 men. Price's army was increasing, and not retreating. From Missouri.

o Woman, named Betty; about 28 years old, five feet four inches high, black, who was hired to Joseph Davis, on Broad street.

ree Federal scouts had been captured by the Confederates on the 9th, and that heavy cannonading was heard in the direction of Tipton the same day. The only considerable body of Confederates the Federals knew of near Tipton was 3,000 cavalry, from Price's force, which had been "laying in wait" for the jayhawkers several days — from all which we imagine that Gen. Price is ere this in possession of the capital of Missouri. The papers are prohibited from publishing news of Fremont's movements.Gen. Price is ere this in possession of the capital of Missouri. The papers are prohibited from publishing news of Fremont's movements. Considerable "indignation" has been manifested in military circles at Jeffersonville on account of the "false alarm" of an attack on Hermann.

Plan of our campaign in Missouri. --The Rolla correspondent of the St. Louis Republican writes, under date of the 9th inst., as follows. We trust that he may be right in his conjecture: The plans of the Confederates, as reported here, (and of course the reports are founded on nothing official,) are about as follows: Price is to fight and conquer Fremont, driving him back to Jefferson City, and thence to St. Louis; McCulloch's forces are to march upon Rella; while Hardee or Pillow approach from Southeast Missouri. Having possession of the termini of the three railroads — the Pacific, Southwest Branch and Iron Mountain — the three armies are to proceed simultaneously to St. Louis, and take possession of that city. This plan is quite extensively laid, and looks quite plausible, if they had the power to carry it into effect.
