and twenty-five wounded. J. A. Garfield, Colonel Commanding Brigade. Interesting from Missouri--troops ordered to March from Rolla — movements of Gen. Price, &c. Sedalia, Mo., Jan. 14 --Advices have reached here that the 1st Kansas regiment, which was sent from here some days since arrived at Lexington on Fr last, where they arrested several of the most prominent and active rebels of the town. They also took and destroyed about 1,500 bogs, being packed for the use of Price's rebels, and a good deal of other valuable property. About sixty rebels, belonging to the regiment of Col.
