The telegraph yesterday brought to this city from Savannah
, a report that General Price
had captured the city of St. Louis
; the extraordinary information having originated, it was stated, with a telegraph operator at Nashville, Tenn.
While we believe Price
is brave enough to attack St. Louis
, and will eventually capture that city, we regard it as strange that the Government
has received no intelligence of his having yet made a demonstration, if the report has any foundation in fact.
We need only add, that it scarcely created a ‘"sensation"’ here yesterday.
