e are enabled to present our readers this morning with the very latest intelligence from the North which has been received in this city, having obtained the New York Herald, of the 7th, and the Baltimore Sun, of the 9th inst.: Important from Missouri. From the columns of the New York Herald, of the 7th, we extract the following in regard to the progress of the war in Missouri: The forces of Gens. Fremont and Price--Fremont Preparing for battle. Springfield, Mo., Nov. 2. --A Missouri: The forces of Gens. Fremont and Price--Fremont Preparing for battle. Springfield, Mo., Nov. 2. --A special dispatch to the St. Louis Republican says: Reliable information has been received here from different sources that Gen Price was at Cassville on Thursday last, with 25,000 men, and that Ben. McCulloch was ten miles this side of that place, with 10,000 more, with the intention of marching on Springfield and offering battle on the old Wilson's Creek grounds. McCulloch was expecting 10,000 additional troops from Arkansas. Large numbers of the residents of Green, Jasper, and other ad
capital. The dispatches were all transmitted from Washington on the 6th instant: Important military changes Contemplated. The appointment of Quartermaster General Meigs is strongly urged here by influential parties, who have confidence in his ability as a commanding officer, as successor to Major-General Fremont, in command of the Western Department, while it is thought probable that Gen. Halleck will be sent to Kentucky. The same persons who wish that Gen. Meigs should be sent to Missouri, are pressing Major Belger--as his successor in the Quartermaster's Department. Acting Major-General Heintzelmann will, it is believed, be raised to the rank of Major-General, while Colonel Cochrane, of the Chasseurs, will be given a brigade. Resignation of Brigadier-General Mitchell. It is doubtless true that Brigadier-General Mitchell, of Cincinnati, has tendered his resignation. The report of the resignation of General Wool. The story of the resignation of Gen. Wool, set
s are said to have fought with bravery and desperation. Latest from Columbus. The Appeal, of the 10th, says: A special dispatch, received last night, from a high official source, at Columbus, says that our loss in killed, wounded, and missing in the recent battle, exceeds six hundred. The amount of excess is not stated. Other reliable estimates place the number of missing, (supposed to be prisoners in the hands of the enemy,) at two hundred. This would leave our loss in killed and wounded, over four hundred. The loss of the enemy is stated, in the dispatch alluded to above, to have been more than double our own. Our men have already buried two hundred and ninety-five of the enemy's killed, and the task is not yet completed. It thus appears that the recent battle in Missouri was one of the bloodiest of the war, and the large number of casualties, in proportion to the forces engaged on both sides, shows the stubbornness with which the ground was contested.
Latest. We have received a copy of the Baltimore Sun, of the 9th inst. The following is a summary of the latest news taken from its columns: Federal Telegrams. Highly Important from Missouri--Federal report of the Engagement at Belmont — heavy Losses on both Sides. Cairo, Ill., Nov. 7.--The expedition under Gens. Grant and McClernand, from this point yesterday, landed at Belmont, Mo., three miles above Columbus, Ky., (which is on the opposite bank of the Mississippi river,) at nd captured a large amount of rebel property, and several prominent Secessionists, including some officers of the rebel army. A large mail for the rebel army was also captured, containing information of the position of the entire rebel force in Missouri. Capt. Wood, with his rangers, has gone forward to Spring Valley, to attack the main body of Freeman's band, stationed there. From Washington — affairs across the Potomac. Washington, Nov. 8. --On Wednesday a party of sixty reb
