s towards it, they met only the projecting stub. The awful reality dawned upon him for the first time. An arm had gone forever, and he dropped backwards on the table in a swoon. Many a poor fellow like him brought to the operator's table came to consciousness only to miss an arm or a leg which perhaps he had begged in his last conscious moments to have spared. But the medical officers first mentioned decided all such cases, and the patient had only to submit. At Peach-Tree Creek, Col. Thomas Reynolds of the Western army was shot in the leg, and, while the surgeons were debating the propriety of amputating it, the colonel, who was of Irish birth, begged them to spare it, as it was very valuable, being an imported leg,--a piece of wit which saved the gallant officer his leg, although he became so much of a cripple that he was compelled to leave the service. It has been charged that limbs and arms were often uselessly sacrificed by the operators; that they were especially fond of

the Mississippi River--from St. Louis, and burn an important railroad bridge within fifty miles of that city, swarming with Lincoln troops, would have been rashness in a leader less sagacious and vigilant than General Thompson, or with soldiers less hardy and daring than the Swamp Fox Brigade of southwest Missouri. The fight at Fredericktown justifies the high reputation of that gallant officer and his command. While deploring the loss of the brave officers and men who fell in that campaign, I console myself with the reflection that as long as Missourians can be found who, half clad and poorly armed, successfully encounter, as at Fredericktown, an army which even the accounts of the enemy admit to have been four times as large as ours engaged in that battle, the expulsion of the foe from our entire State is merely a question of time and of our means fully to arm and equip our loyal citizens. I remain, colonel, very respectfully, Thomas Reynolds, Lieutenant-Governor of Missouri.

ls, reporting to the Senate his reasons for his action in each case. I recommend, also, that as we have several men now holding commissions in the militia who are disloyal, that authority be given to the Executive to strike their names from the rolls, and have their places supplied by new elections. This I regard as exceedingly important, and request that early action shall be taken upon these questions. Bills reported. Mr. Alderson, by leave, introduced "a bill to compensate Thomas Reynolds for enrolling and mustering the militia of Webster county."
