Jackson's declarations in his proclamation of the 12th ultimo, it is due to him that I should mention the fact that I have at no time had, and have not now, any agency of any kind from him; it is due to myself to add that since that proclamation I havyour deliverance will surely come. With the limited information obtainable here concerning recent even is in Missouri, it is difficult to form a judgment about our immediate future.

Jackson, you will, I trust, not consider it ostentation in me to give you this public assurance that, to the best of my ability, endeavoring to mingle prudence with energy and firmness though with a painful consciousness of the difficulty and responsi

A messenger who was dispatched here for assistance reports that Col. Smith and fifty Federals have been taken prisoners.
