Keenon, commanding Thirty-sixth regiment enrolled militia, and Lieutenant Denton, commanding Kentucky Scouts, to report to me immediately the available force under their command. The reports were promptly furnished; and I ascertained that my active force, consisting of cavalry and infantry, amounted to only one hundredter this disposition of the force, I rode to your headquarters to report, and while there received information that the enemy were advancing toward town, upon the Lexington pike, with a force estimated at two hnndred. I immediately ordered Lieutenant Denton, of the scouts, to take thirty men and ascertain the truth of this report. A few moments after the detachment started, I determined to go myself and find out the exact state of the case, as I apprehended great danger from that direction.

On the night of the 27th of March, 1858, the ruffians of the fort made a drive on the Free State settlements on the Little Osage, being informed by their spies that the river was unguarded. They first rode up to the house of a Mr. Denton,--an inoffensive Free State man,--called him out, and after asking a few trifling questions, deliberately shot him. Some five shots were fired at him, two of which took effect. He expired in two hours. Before his death he charged his assassination to two men by the names of Brockett and Hardwick. They then proceeded to the residence of a Mr. Davis, a neighbor of Mr. Denton's, and demanded entrance. Suspecting then of being enemies, Mr. Davis refused to open the door. The ruffians fired several times through the door; one of their shots took effect in his hand, but he was not seriously injured by any of their discharges. The next place visited was the house of a Mr. Hedrick. They arrived there about two o'clock. Mr. Hedrick was

Escape from jail. --We learn from the Bowling Green (Ky.) Standard, that on Saturday night, the 27th ult., while Mr. Denton, jailor of the county, was attending to the wants of his prisoners, Martin, charged with murder, and Hicks, who had recently been confined for an outrage committed upon the person of Miss Marthenia Ford, made a rush at the jailor, and succeeded in throwing him down and effecting their escape. A detachment of police have been engaged in pursuit ever since, and on Wednesday afternoon returned with Hicks, who was captured within two miles of the Tennessee line. Martin has not been heard from.
driven out.--The main body of the force marched 22 miles. I have before stated, that a company of the Lincoln cavalry, under Capt. Todd, strayed away from a portion of Gen. Sedgwick's brigade, under command of Col. Berry. Gen. Heintzelman states that the loss sustained by the movement was from the negligence of the officers in command of the cavalry, who permitted their men to straggle in the presence of the enemy, and to plunder.--Of the Lincoln Cavalry, Sergeant O'Brien is killed; Bugler Denton mortally wounded, since died; private Miller, wounded, missing; private Mitchell, wounded slightly; Capt. Todd, missing; private Johnson, missing.--Eleven horses are also missing. The rebels evidently occupy several points on the railroad in force, have a cavalry stationed at or near Elzey's and Sangster's Cross Roads, and a force at Wolf Run Shoals.

In one of Wilson's or Anderson's ornithological papers there is an account of the wonder and fierceness of a certain sort of American woodpecker when it was first put in a cage.--All the present actions and behavior of the American Press are described to the life in it. At last it began to tear cut its own feathers. Here is Mr. Stanton--the man of an hour, the lawyer of yesterday; the hippodromes, the press-tamer of to-day!--How he has grown, almost in a moment, into life and power ! So did Denton, so did Ponche, so did Robespierre. But, remember, they had no such cause as "the Union." If they thought they had, they were no doubt wrong.

Let no one suppose the writers were not sincere, though the lady who sat in the car might have in the flash und
