public safety and success of our arms require unity of purpose, without let or hindrance to the prompt administration of affairs. In order, therefore, to suppress disorders, maintain the public peace, and give security to the persons and property of loyal citizens, I do hereby extend and declare established martial law throughout the State of Missouri. The lines of the army occupation in this State are for the present declared to extend from Leavenworth, by way of posts of Jefferson City, Rolla, and Ironton, to Cape Girardeau on the Mississippi River. All persons who shall be taken with arms in their hands within these lines shall be tried by court-martial, and if found guilty, will be shot. Real and personal property of those who shall take up arms against the United States, or who shall be directly proven to have taken an active part with their enemies in the field, is declared confiscated to public use, and their slaves, if any they have, are hereby declared free men.

From a gentleman who arrived here from Bennett's Mills last evening, we have further particulars of the attack made on the Dent County Home Guard, stationed at that place, by some three hundred and fifty rebels of Schnabel's regiment. The attack was made by the latter just at dawn of day on Sunday morning, when most of the Home Guard were absent, there being only thirty-eight men present in their sleeping-quarters, under the sheds in the rear of some corn cribs. Fourteen of the men were out on pickets, and twenty-five were absent making preparations to bring to Rolla the eighteen prisoners taken the day before. The officers, except Lieutenant Stewart and Sergeant Bay, were absent; Captain Bennett was away from home, and Lieutenant Chandler had just before gone up to the captain's house after some meal, when he was cut
Doc. 75. the fight at Shanghai, Mo. September 27, 1861. A correspondent of the Missouri Democrat, gives the following account of this fight:-- Rolla, October 14. From gentlemen in from Springfield, we have a confirmation of the Shanghai fight between Montgomery and the forces under McCulloch. All information from this quarter must come through secession channels, and that is consequently quite meagre. It was stated that Montgomery flaxed out the secessionists, and the latter were driven some distance. Montgomery then fell back on Greenfield. The forces at Springfield were kept in a state of constant alarm for several nights, in apprehension of an attack from the Jayhawkers. The baggage train was rushed to the public square and placed under a strong guard, while the troops went out to Owens' farm--one mile and a half from Springfield — and formed in line of battle, resting on their arms over night. One informant states that John Price started northward with five hun
tion near Henrytown on the 13th. The party detailed to scout the battlefield, and see that the dead were all buried, have returned, and report the whole number of the enemy killed sixty-two, instead of twenty-seven, as per my official report; also, the four mortally wounded have since died. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your most obedient servant, Clark Wright, Major Com. Fremont Battalion Cavalry. To Brig.-Gen. J. B. Wyman, Com. Brigade. Missouri Democrat account. Rolla, Oct. 16, 1861. The ambulances looked for from Springfield, came in to-day, bringing thirty-one of the men wounded in the Wilson Creek fight. Mr. Burns, of Springfield, and two ladies also came along in company with the ambulances. These people report that a sharp engagement took place Sunday morning between two companies of cavalry, belonging to Major Wright's battalion, attached to Wyman's expedition, and about three hundred mounted rebels, in which sixty of the latter were killed a
the town. All of which is respectfully submitted. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your ob't serv't, Clark Wright, Major Commanding Fremont Battalion Cavalry. To Brig.-Gen. Wyman Commanding. St. Louis Republican account. Rolla, Mo., Oct. 19, 1861. A messenger from Linn Creek arrived yesterday evening, bringing interesting news from that point, having left there on Thursday night. He reports that Gen. Wyman, with his command, had arrived safely in that place. He was prthat Lebanon had not been taken by the Federal troops, and knowing that they were likely to be taken in by the superior numbers of the secessionists, they dispersed, about half the company returning to their homes, and the other half starting for Rolla, which they reached without interruption, bringing with them several fine secesh horses. On the way they learned from secesh authority that the rebels lost about sixty men killed, and fifty horses, in the engagement at Wet Glaze on Sunday mornin
t least. Such, I doubt not, were the considerations of many of my comrades, and such is the weakness of human nature. War is an unavoidable necessity under present circumstances, and none but a brute loves to take the life of his fellow-man. Excuse this diversion from my subject, which will be read with more interest than an expansion on individual meditations. After half an hour, we passed through the village with an involuntary desire to reduce it to ashes, and continued on the road to Rolla, and here we began to discover evidences of the increased activity of the rebels' retreat, Wagons, ammunition, tents, &c., were strewn along the route, and ere long a halt till day-break was ordered. General, colonel, and private lay down together in sleep, and all military distinctions were subservient to the all-controlling desire to rest. Here the Seventh, Thirty-seventh, and Forty-fourth rejoined our forces, having preceded us up Loup Creek. It was only necessary to issue the order an
