States. The first amendment to the Constitution, declares that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press. President Lincoln, and his Cabinet, have wilfully disregarded the spirit of this article. Numerous instances could be cited to prove that the solemnities of an oath have not restrained them in their efforts to abridge the freedom of speech, and to muzzle the press. The numberless arrests made by them in Western and Eastern Virginia, in Kentucky, in Missouri, in Maryland, in Washington City, and also in the free States, when nothing more was charged against the parties arrested, than the declaration of their opinion, in condemnation of the policy of President Lincoln and his Cabinet, show that freedom of speech is not tolerated by them. The notorious fact that papers have been suppressed in New-York, Philadelphia, and elsewhere, by the exercise of Executive power, fully attests a scandalous usurpation for the destruction of the independence of
loss in killed and wounded cannot be less than eighty to one hundred. Your most obedient, W. M. G. Torrence, Major First Battalion First Iowa Cavalry. To Brig.-Gen. Pope, Otterville, Mo. Missouri Democrat account. Fayette, Howard Co.,Mo., Jan. 9, 1862. The anniversary of the battle of New-Orleans was celebrated in this county by one of the hardest fought battles of the campaign in Missouri, considering the number of men engaged and position of the enemy. Our forces had been Missouri, considering the number of men engaged and position of the enemy. Our forces had been engaged for several days in a grand hunt, and had scoured the county as thoroughly as did Daniel Boone many years since, but after different game. The whole county was full of reports about the movements of the secesh, and it was difficult to ascertain accurately as to their number or whereabouts; but we were not to be foiled in these, if indefatigable energy and endurance of officers could accomplish it, and these Majors Torrence and Hubbard possessed. Reconnoissances in force were made in
authority. When Gen. Hunter took command in Missouri, it was resolved, in a council of war, to adv command, and the hope of yet being useful to Missouri, made him reconsider that intention. After G and unexecuted, and every opportunity to aid Missouri has been designedly denied him. At last the inhabitants of Southwestern Missouri petitioned the President to grant them military protection, andhe first order, and that the battle-fields of Missouri are everlasting monuments of his valor and hiition of affairs in Missouri. The Germans in Missouri, he said, had saved that State from being swaand best leaders of the army. The Germans in Missouri had been persecuted ever since the breaking oon would have succeeded in wrenching the State of Missouri from the Union. (Bravo.)

The undersigned, by order of the President, assumes command of the Trans-Mississippi District, which comprises the States of Missouri and Arkansas, except that portion of them lying between the St. Francis and Mississippi rivers, as far north as Scott County, Missouri; the State of Louisiana as far south as Red River, and the Indian Territory west of Arkansas. Headquarters, until otherwise directed, at Pocahontas, Arkansas. Commanders of troops in the service of the Confederate States, within this district, will at once make a report of the strength and condition of their commands, accompanied with a written report in full of everything relating to the supplying of the troops — their wants, their arms and equipments; their clothing, ammunition, and, in a word, of everything that migh
Doc. 37.-General Halleck's order. headquarters of the Department of Missouri, St. Louis, February 4. The president, professors, curators, and other officers of the University of Missouri, are required to take and subscribe to the oath of allegiance prescribed by the sixth article of the State Ordinance of October sixteenth, 1861, to file the same in the office of the Provost-Marshal General in this city. Those who fail to comply with this order, within the period of thirty days, will be considered as having resigned their respective offices; and if any one who so fails shall thereafter attempt to obtain pay or perform the functions of such office, he will be tried and punished for military offence. This institution having been endowed by the Government of the United States, its funds should not be used to teach treason, or to instruct traitors. The authorities of the University should, therefore, expel from, its walls all persons who, by word or deed, favor, assist, or ab

I then posted the grand guard between the battle-ground of the morning and their intrenchments, with orders not to let them put any grand guard between their intrenchments and us, and had details from the Eleventh Indiana and Eighth Missouri carrying the wounded from the battleground of the morning to the rear nearly all night. The wounded thus carried off were principally from the Eighth, Eleventh, and Twentieth Illinois regiments. The small loss my brigade sustained was owing to

nces of Federal success. If they succeed, we shall see plunder, insult to old and young, male and female, murder of innocents, release of slaves, and causing them to drive and insult their masters and mistresses in the most most menial services, the land laid waste, houses burned, banks and private coffers robbed, cotton and every valuable taken away before our eyes, and a brutal, drunken soldiery turned loose upon us. Who wants to see this? If you do not believe, you will see it; look at Missouri. As soon as our troops have occupied the country for a few weeks, and by their action given the lie to such assertions as the above, the latent Union sentiment, in this portion of the State, will develop itself to an extent that will overwhelm the traitors beyond redemption. Another week will witness a change of the greatest magnitude. The river-banks, and the country adjoining, from Donelson up to Nashville, are of a most charming character. The bluffs, on either side, are broken,
Doc. 64.-the rebel retreat from Spring-field, Mo. General Price's official report. Headquarters M. S. G., camp on Cove Creek, Arkansas, February 25, 1862. To His Excellency C. F. Jackson, Governor of Missouri: sir: I have the honor to lay before you an account of the circumstances surrounding my command within the last two weeks, compelling me to evacuate Springfield and retreat beyond the State line into the territory of Arkansas, the intelligence of which has no doubt reached youeld I received from Grand Glaze considerable supplies of clothing, camp and garrison equipage, and having built huts, our soldiers were as comfortable as circumstances would permit. I am pleased to say few complaints were either made or heard. Missouri having been admitted as an equal member of the confederate States, and having my command much augmented by recruits, I was enabled to raise and equip about four thousand men for the confederate service. A brigade of these, consisting of two reg
d me in my efforts to preserve discipline in my command, as these circumstances offered extraordinary temptations. The burning of farms and fields of grain in Missouri, and extensive barracks and valuable mills in Arkansas by the enemy, has induced some resentments on the part of my troops, which I have severely punished. Nece much of the havoc of war will be avoided, and many poor families can be protected from distress and misery. I have followed the war-path through the entire State of Missouri, have seen the havoc and devastation surrounding it, and I deplore the prospect of these disasters in the virgin soil of Arkansas. Armed men, in the garb of citizens, are concealed by citizens, and the unfortunate condition of Missouri will be transferred to Arkansas, if you allow this complicity of yourselves in the struggle. If you do not discriminate by requiring soldiers to wear some distinctive badge, you must not complain if we cannot discriminate. There is no honor, no g
