The loss of the enemy cannot be certainly ascertained, but from accounts deemed reliable it is not less than one hundred and sixty, many of whom were killed.

Lexington, Sept. 21, 1861. General Price: Sir:--In pursuance of your orders I left this place on the 15th instant, and proceeded forthwith to Liberty, Clay County, Missouri, where I met the State Guard on the march from the northwest--one regiment of infantry, under command of Colonel Saunders, and one regiment of cavalry, under command of Colonel Wilfley, of the Fifth district, and one regiment of infantry, under command of Colonel Jeff. Patton, and one battalion of cavalry, under command of Colonel Childs, from the Fourth dis
tance, when all three of the rebels were taken prisoners. A negro, who is serving Captain Switzler as a cook, was in the heat of the battle, and behaved with great bravery. He is said to have killed two men and taken one prisoner. A spy from Price's army arrived here early this morning. He left the rebel camp on Thursday night, and reports that Price was encamped a few miles south of Osceola, where he intended to make a stand. A prominent, citizen of Laclede County, at the head of twentyPrice was encamped a few miles south of Osceola, where he intended to make a stand. A prominent, citizen of Laclede County, at the head of twenty-seven other citizens of Laclede, Webster, and Wright Counties, arrived at the fort yesterday about noon. These men live in the southwestern part of Laclede, the northeast of Webster, and northern part of Wright Counties. They left home on Monday evening, and came on directly toward this place. Their departure from their homes was rather unexpected, even to themselves — for reasons a little peculiar, though amply sufficient. Having heard, upon what they regarded as good authority, that Leba
received a despatch from Lexington stating that a valuable baggage train had left the vicinity of Lexington, destined for Price's rebel army; also, a private despatch from Colonel White, stating that if he and his fellow-prisoners were not relieved ngton the following morning, was seized by us. Our first care was to rescue our fellow-soldiers, captured at Lexington by Price, viz, Colonel White, Col. Grover, and some twelve or fifteen others. We placed them on board the Sioux City with a guard We next proceeded to Warsaw, and are now en route to Stockton. Among the interesting articles taken at Lexington were Price's ambulance, Colonel Mulligan's saddle, and the flag I have the pleasure of sending you. [The flag is the State flag ourprise, that the rebels in Lexington fled in every direction. We took possession of the town, and camped on the site of Price's headquarters, on the Fair grounds. When Mrs. White and Mrs. Grover met us at the door of the house where their husba
nversation with the chief actors, I am able to give a more accurate and intelligible account than the hasty jottings of my letter of yesterday. It would appear that the command of Jeff. Thompson, or at least some one answering to that name, eight hundred strong, proceeded from Dallas, Bollinger County, to Big River bridge by forced marches, to destroy it, with what ulterior purpose is not very clear, unless, indeed, the valiant Jeff. was emulous of the fame of his brother in treason, Sterling Price, and desired to reenact the tragedy of Lexington on the garrison at Pilot Knob and Ironton. The men say they marched seventy miles with but an interval of four hours of rest. Col. Carlin, hearing reports of the enemy so conflicting and perplexing, determined upon a reconnoissance in force. For this purpose he detailed six companies of Col. Baker's Indiana Cavalry, Captains Browe, Walker, Clendenning, Stockin, Barter, and one company of Missouri Cavalry, Captain Hawkins, under the co

reconnoissance toward Columbus. The object of the expedition was to prevent the enemy from sending out reinforcements to Price's army in Missouri, and also from cutting off columns that I had been directed to send out from this place and Cape Girary from sending a force into Missouri to cut off troops I had sent there for a special purpose, and to prevent reinforcing Price. Besides being well fortified at Columbus, their number far exceeded ours, and it would have been folly to have attackn was not for the attack of Columbus, but for the purpose of diverting the enemy from sending reinforcements to Thompson, Price, or Buckner, and I have further learned from Gen. McClernand, which is corroborated by prisoners taken at Belmont, that ans. There were thirteen regiments at Columbus yesterday morning, and they were all to have left yesterday to reinforce Price, and it was known here, and the reception they got from the Egyptians of the Sucker State, has prevented it.

During the afternoon the steamer McClellan arrived from Fort Pickens with two Parrott guns, which were immediately placed on board the Richmond, and about four P. M. the Water Witch was despatched by Captain Pope to communicate with the steamers South Carolina and Huntsville, (in Barrataria and Berwick bays,) taking verbal orders to Commander Alden to proceed to Pass à l'outre, and to Commander Price to join the Richmond at Southwest Pass. Regretting my inability to communicate more briefly a faithful detail of the events of the day, I have the honor to remain, with much respect, your obedient servant, Francis Winslow, Lieutenant Commanding.

Doc. 176. Jeff. Thompson's exploit at Price's landing, Mo., November 18, 1861. A correspondent at St. Louis, Mo., gives the following account of this affair:-- B. F. Livingston, the agent deputed by the U. S. Government to travel on the steamer Platte Valley, was put in charge of that steamer at Cape Girardeau, and brought her to this port. We learn from him some interesting particulars of the trip of the bost since she left Cairo, Ill. When opposite Price's landing, the boat was hailPrice's landing, the boat was hailed from shore by two men, attired in military overcoats, who were supposed to be Federal scouts. It turned out, however, that they were the redoubtable Jeff. Thompson and his adjutant. As soon as the boat was made fast to the bank, Jeff. raised his hand, and instantly two hundred men sprung in view from their places of concealment in the immediate vicinity, and quickly one hundred rushed on board, preceded by Jeff. himself. The leader inquired for the captain of the boat, and asked if the P
