mmanders were earnestly enjoined to use their utmost endeavors to have the orders carried into effect in every particular and without delay. On the 19th of September the army marched in the order above designated, and on that day I entered Missouri with 12,000 men — only 8,000, however, armed — and fourteen pieces of artillery, and on the 24th of September reached Fredericktown, Missouri, with the centre column. Brigadier-General Shelby was in the advance, passing, in his route, through Doniphan and Patterson; whilst Major-General Marmaduke, whose route was by Poplar bluff, Castorville and Dallas, had not yet come up. On the 19th, before Brigadier-General Shelby reached Doniphan, news of the arrival of the army having been received, a force of the enemy, composed of a part of the Federal Missouri Twelfth cavalry, then occupying the place, withdrew, first setting fire to the town, which was consumed, and retreated to Pender's mills (burning the houses of citizens as they passed), wh

tion of the Mexican settlers. The other, under the command of Colonel Doniphan, traversed, in the heart of winter, the rugged mountains inhab the Rio Grande, and had just invaded the province of Monterey. Doniphan had only eight hundred mounted Missourians, who were subsequently ere checked for a moment by a deep ravine. The first battalion of Doniphan, protected by two howitzers that had arrived at a gallop to come ie following day the victors entered Chihuahua. But in this town Doniphan received news which rendered his position singularly perilous. Gthus found himself at more than one hundred and fifty leagues from Doniphan, and utterly unable to effect a junction with him.

Point which command the tongue of land upon which Cairo stands. General Lyon, as we have seen, had preserved the city of St. Louis to the Union, and Cairo had been garrisoned by Federal troops before the Confederates had made any attempt to seize it. But the secessionists, on seeing the best portion of the State slipping away from them, no longer contented themselves with waging a partisan war. At the call of Sterling Price all those who had made the long Mexican campaigns with him or with Doniphan, or who had many times listened to the exaggerated descriptions given of them, hastened to form themselves into an army, intended to recapture the State from the Federal troops, under the name of Missouri Guards. We have seen how Lyon, on the 18th of June, dispersed those first assemblages which had gathered at Booneville, on the upper Missouri, where the pro-slavery element predominated. That success was by no means decisive. Price had an immense country before him, into which he could
and afford facilities to the press. They are anxious to go down to posterity, and realize that this is their last chance. An effort will be made to-morrow to admit the press, but it is doubtful if it succeeds, as the majority of the members are tumid men, and dare not risk the criticism of the people upon their conduct. A dispatch to the Baltimore American says: They were reported with but three dissenting votes, viz: Messrs. Seddon, of Virginia: Refined, of North Carolina, and Doniphan, of Missouri, all three Secessionists, who stated at length their objections and reasons for not accruing, but declined making a minority report. It is said that Virginia, North Carolina and Missouri will vote against adopting the report, a majority of each of these delegations being opposed to it, and a majority controls the vote of the State. Messrs. Tyler, Seddon and Brockenbrough will urge the Virginia Convention to reject the proposition, and Messrs. Rivers and Summers will
ase, of Ohio, led the van. The latter introduced Mr. Tyler. Mr. Lincoln received him with all the respect due his position. The several delegates were then presented to Mr. Lincoln by Governor Chase, in the usual manner. When the tall General Doniphan, of Missouri, was introduced, Mr. Lincoln had to look up to catch Doniphan's eye. He immediately inquired. "Is this Doniphan who made that splendid march across the Plains, and swept the swift Camanches before him?" "I commanded thDoniphan who made that splendid march across the Plains, and swept the swift Camanches before him?" "I commanded the expedition across the Plains." modestly responded the eneral. "Then you have come up to the standard of my expectation," rejoined Mr. Lincoln. After the reception of the Peace Congress was concluded, a large number of citizens were presented. Mr. Lincoln was then notified that the ante-rooms and main parlors of the hotel were filled with ladies, who desired to pay their respects, to which the President elect very promptly consented. The ladies then passed in review, each being intr
Missouri State Convention. --Among the resolutions offered to the Convention Wednesday morning and referred to the Committee on Federal Relations, was one moving that a Convention be called of all the Southern States which have not seceded, to meet at Nashville, Tennessee, on the 15th of April.--Another, providing for such amendments to the Constitution as shall secure to all the States equal rights in the Union. Another, declaring that no reason existed why Missouri should secede, and that it would be highly injurious to do so. Another, declaring that the States having once bound themselves together, could never dissever their connection at pleasure. Another, that Missouri should adopt a policy according to her true interests, and invite an effort to maintain the Union peaceful and unbroken. Col. Doniphan offered a resolution declaring that any attempt to use coercion by the Federal Government would inevitably result in civil war and military despotism.
General Reid, of Missouri. --The sons of Virginia are rallying everywhere to the standard of the South. General John W. Reid, of Missouri, it is announced, is raising a regiment to join McCulloch and Price. Gen. R. is a native of Virginia — a son, we think, of Rev. W. S. Reid, of Lynchburg, and a nephew of Hon. A. W. Venable, member of the Confederate Congress from North Carolina. The county of Prince Edward, which is the native one of General Johnston and General Price, was the birth-place of General Reid's mother. General R. acquired much reputation in the celebrated Doniphan expedition, in which he held the post of Captain, and became a terror to his enemies. He afterwards filled several State offices in Missouri, engaged in the Kansas war, and in 1860 was elected to the United States House of Representatives.
