Gen. Price is set down by some of the papers as a West Pointer, says he owes his success to practical good sense and hard fighting. He never attended a military school in his life — is a natural soldier, possessing the unbounded confidence of every Missourian. At the breaking out of the Mexican war, Gen. Price raised a regiment of Missourians, and for gallant conduct in several battles on the plains of Mexico was brevetted to Brigadier General. Since, and before that, and until the breaking out of the present revolution, he has spent his time on his farm in Chariton county, being one of the wealthiest and most successful planters of North Missouri.
