Doc. 126. Fremont's address to his army. Headquarters Western Department, Springfield, Mo., November 2, 1861. Soldiers of the Mississippi army: Agreeably to orders received this day, I take leave of you. Although our army has been of sudden growth, we have grown up together, and I have become familiar with the brave and generous spirits which you bring to the defence of your country, and which makes me anticipate for you a brilliant career. Continue as you have begun, and give to my successor the same cordial and enthusiastic support with which you have encouraged me. Emulate the splendid example which you have already before you, and let me remain as I am, proud of the noble army which I have thus far labored to bring together. Soldiers, I regret to leave you. Most sincerely I thank you for the regard and confidence you have invariably shown me. I deeply regret that I shall not have the honor to lead you to the victory which you are just about to win; but I shall claim
Doc. 128. Zagonyi's letter to the ladies of Springfield, Missouri. Headquarters, Fremont Body Guard, Springfield, Nov. 2, 1861.

Some intimation of sSpringfield, Nov. 2, 1861. To Mrs. Worrell and others, ladies of Spring-field: Ladies: Your flattering offer to present a flag to the Fremont Body Guard is appreciated and gratefully acknowledged. Some intimation of such a gift reached me late yesterday afternoon, and I much regret the mistake or misunderstanding which prevented a proper recognition of your kindness at that time. But it is with far more profound sorrow that I find myself compelled to decline the proffered presentation. It would be idle to affect ignorance of the fact that t The honor of the soldiers under my command, dear to me as my own, I must not permit to be sullied or tarnished in the slightest degree. The Union women of Springfield are too noble and generous to misinterpret this rejection of a testimonial which, under other circumstances, would be so thankfully received and so highly prize
Doc. 134. the Fremont-Price treaty. General Hunter's Repudiation of it. Gen. Hunter to Gen. Price. Headquarters Western Department, Springfield, Mo., Nov. 7, 1861. General Sterling Price, commanding forces at Cassville, Mo.: General: Referring to an agreement purporting to have been made between Major-Generals Fremont and Price, respectively, commanding antagonistic forces in the State of Missouri, to the effect that, in future, arrests or forcible interference, by armed or unarmed parties of citizens within the limits of said State, for the mere entertainment or expression of political opinions, shall hereafter cease; that families now broken up for such causes may be reunited; and that the war now progressing shall be exclusively confined to armies in the field — I have to state: That, as General commanding the forces of the United States in this Department, I can in no manner recognize the agreement aforesaid, or any of its provisions, whether implied or direct; and

r unchanging love and admiration, and of our most sincere thanks and of our approbation for the immortal services he rendered to the cause of science and of his country, for the giant energy and the self-sacrificing patriotism with which he created the army of the West, for the great and humane principle of his proclamation of emancipation, for the vigor and quickness with which he, in spite of all the obstacles thrown in his way by the authorities at Washington, marched from St. Louis to Springfield, and cleared the State from the hordes of the rebels, and for his self-denying, truly antique, and republican civic virtues, in which he received the blow aimed at him by the President. Mr. Lamperts offered a resolution censuring the Chicago Tribune for its course in the Fremont controversy, which on motion of N. Eisendrath was laid on the table; the ground alleged for the rejection being, that it would be beneath the dignity of the meeting, after having declared their views in such mo
five hours at Pohick Church; the main body marched twenty-two miles, and the regiments, which were pushed forward to the Occoquan, about thirty; all were back to their camps by nine P. M. Colonel Berry's regiment of General Sedgewick's brigade, with Captain Todd's company of Lincoln Cavalry, marched at four A. M. on the old Fairfax road with orders to halt at the Accotink, and push forward a reconnoissance as far as the Pohick. Col. Berry seems to have mistaken Fairfax Station for either Springfield or Burke's Station; the latter is the more probable. He says he took the road toward Pohick Church; le should have followed the old Fairfax road as far as the Pohick. By taking the road toward Pohick Church, his scouts came in sight of our troops in advance of the church, and mistook them for the enemy drilling. Our skirmishers saw them, and reported the rebel cavalry and infantry on that road. Gen. Heintzelman advanced a force to meet them, but after sending forward no one could be d
st part, the army, once common to both, were in their possession. To meet all this we had to create not only an army in the face of war itself, but also military establishments necessary to equip and place it in the field. It ought, indeed, to be a subject of gratulation that the spirit of the volunteers and the patriotism of the people have enabled us, under Providence, to grapple successfully with these difficulties. A succession of glorious victories at Bethel, Bull Run, Manassas, Springfield, Lexington, Leesburg, and Belmont, has checked the wicked invasion which greed of gain and the unhallowed lust of power brought upon our soil, and has proved that numbers cease to avail when directed against a people fighting for the sacred right of self-government and the privileges of freemen. After seven months of war, the enemy have not only failed to extend their occupancy of our soil, but new States and Territories have been added to our Confederacy, while, instead of their threate
