Bowen, agent of the Hannibal and St. Jos About 2 o'clock on Wednesday morning the camp of the Federal troops, under Col. Smith, of the Illinois Sixteenth, near Monroe station, some thirty miles West of Hahere another skirmish occurred, in which the Confederates were again repulsed. Smith then took up a position and sent messengers for reinforcements from Quincy. St. Louis, July 12 --A gentleman from Hannibal last night says that Col. Smith's command at Monroe was reinforced by three hundred mounted Illinoisans yesterday afternoon, when the Confederates, who had been surrounding Col. Smith's force, were attacked and dispersed. Gen. Harris, their commander, was forced to abandon on city, on the Missouri shore, with orders to push from there by land to aid Col. Smith. By the route taken they will avoid the bridges, but will have to march thir

Several witnesses were examined, and the prisoner was committed to jail for examination before the Corporation Court. The weapon used is Smith & Wesson's revolver, which drives a slug with great force. No important war news from this quarter. Galeaius.
Who is Mr. Smith? --We see it stated in the Northern papers that a Southerner of the name of Smith has been arrested in N. York, under the belief that he was one of the members of the Provisional Congress, now sitting in Richmond. We are Smith has been arrested in N.

ng vent to their feelings. I have brought with me about four hundred letters from the prisoners and wounded.--Should any of their relatives or friends wish to communicate with them, address their letters, "Prisoner of war, care of General Winder, Richmond," and delivered open at Adams Express office, I have been assured by the General that he will faithfully see them delivered. The same with clothing and money. In concluding this letter, allow me to bear testimony to the uniform kindness to us — wounded and prisoners — by the Confederate authorities; they did all in their power to ameliorate our condition. To Col. Stone, of the Fourth South Carolina Regiment, and Dr. Smith, of the Nineteenth Mississippi, I am under an everlasting debt of gratitude for supplying the wounded in my hospital with food when we were starving, my hospital being.

of horror unequalled by those of the French Revolution. The Administration, therefore, decided, as I have said, not to hang any of the pirates. But within a day or two the question has been again raised in the Cabinet. At least one member of that body is in favor, as he expresses it, of discarding all squeamish nonsense, and of hanging every rebel found in arms against the Government, whether taken on the sea or land! This is undoubtedly the course that ought to be taken, if the Government regards this matter as simply an insurrection. This is the view taken of it by President Lincoln; and he, too, although he deplores the necessity of such dreadful measures, is in favor of such a course as will show to the world that we are in earnest in this matter, and that traitors found in arms against the Government must expect and receive a traitor's doom. Mr. Bates and Mr. Blair both go for extreme measures, regardless of consequences; and Mr. Smith also entertains the same views.
protection to Forts Hamilton and Lafayette, where a large number of prisoners — including the United States troops who were released on their parole by the Secessionists in Texas, and who are suing in the courts for their release — are now kept. The companies, under command of Lieut. Col. Cross, were immediately furnished, and are now encamped near Fort Hamilton. Various items from Washington. We copy the following from the Washington correspondence of the Baltimore Sun: Secretary Smith distinctly promises and declares, in his address to the New York financiers, that the war, which has now assumed gigantic proportions, shall be vigorously prosecuted. The United States Government have never yet seemed to be in earnest in this war. Of late the Government and the whole North have begun to see matters in their true light, and the contest has come to be acknowledged on both sides as one that cannot end except with the complete triumph of one side or the other.

Arrested as a spy. --Yesterday a young man who had been noticed for the past day or two prowling about the city under suspicious circumstances was arrested on suspicion of being a Lincoln spy. He had a full examination before the Governor, during which it appeared from papers in his possession, and other testimony, that his name is Smith, and a New Yorker by birth; that he worked at the printing business for some time in Charleston, S. C.; that he alleged publicly he was going to Petersburg, while on his person was found a pass from the authorities here for Nashville, Tenn. The Governor remanded him for a further hearing. If he is innocent, of course he will have every opportunity to establish that fact. If he was bound for Washington via Nashville, he ought to be dealt with as the law directs.
erates. The cavalry had, on some unknown pretext, made prisoners of several citizens of the county, and brought them into Alexandria. They then returned to make more attests. Meantime, one of their prisoners escaped, and reaching the Confederate scouts, put them in possession of these facts. The result was a trap and a capture. What might be regarded as an extraordinary Cabinet Council, was held on Friday. Mr. Chase having returned, there was a full Cabinet, with the exception of Mr. Smith, who is making war speeches in the North. It is the talk of the streets that the danger and defence of the Capital were discussed earnestly and at length. Decided apprehensions are said to have been expressed, (I give legitimately the current rumor of "the avenue,") as to a Confederate plan supposed to have been ferreted out by the restless scrutiny of Gen. McClellan. According to this plan the Confederates, under Beauregard and Johnston, are to cross twenty or thirty miles up the r
