Gen. Price.

--From all parts of the Confederacy we hear a unanimous tribute to the illustrious services rendered by Gen. Price in Missouri. He is one of those Generals who comprehends the genius of revolution and the spirit and temper of volunteer troops. He has not restrained the enthusiasm of the volunteer, and yet has guided. directed and impolite it in the most prudent as well as efficient manner. In all Missouri his name is a tower of strength to his friends and of terror to his enemies. The best men of Missouri are in his army — men of patriotism, of character, and of substantial interests in society. They have been attracted to his banner by confidence in the man as well as by devotion to the cause, and under his auspices have raised the drooping fortunes of Missouri from the dust, and given her the promise of eventual disenthralled from her cruel oppressors Gen. Price is evidently the right man in the right place, and, if permitted to go on as he has begun, will add new triumphs to the Confederate cause and fresh laurels to his own honored name. We trust the day is not far distant when even St. Louis will be rescued from the fangs of Lincolndom; and if there is any man who can do it, it is Price.
