tra Session of the Rebel Legislature, called together by a proclamation of Governor Jackson, and held at Neosho, Missouri, in October, 1861. It was published by ordeor and his associates, and they justly regarded the whole matter as a trick of Jackson and other conspirators to deceive the people, and to gain time to get arms, anparole first offered them, and they were released.

Conant held a four hours interview with Governor Jackson, General Price, and Thomas L. Smead, the latter being the Governor's private secretary. Jackson demanded, as a vital condition of pacification, that throughout the State the Home-Guards, composed of loyal citizens, should be disbanded, anowed to tread the soil of Missouri. Lyon peremptorily refused compliance, and Jackson and his associates returned to Jefferson City that night. On the following da

ackson did not hazard an advance against them that day, but stood on the defensive. Reynolds lost in the struggle full 4,000 men. Meade lost about forty per cent. of his whole command, and many valuable officers were slain or wounded. General C. F. Jackson was killed; and General George D. Bayard, who commanded the cavalry on the left, was mortally wounded by a shell, and died that night. He was only twenty-eight years of age, and was on the eve of marriage. His loss was widely felt. Gen Many of the latter soon rejoined the army, while seventy per cent. of the wounded ranked as slightly, and soon recovered. Lee at first reported his loss at about 1,800, killed, wounded, and missing, but the detailed reports of Longstreet and Jackson made the number 5,809, including some prisoners. The Confederate loss was probably about one-half that of the reported loss of the Nationals. It was evident to the commanders engaged in the conflict that it would be useless to make any further

Jackson, Governor of Missouri: Governor: I have the honor to inform tmost coolness and resolution on the part of officers and men. Colonel Jackson has also been ordered to concentrate his regiment at Trenton fly disturb their communications. Show this communication to Colonel Jackson. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Thomas Jordan, Assis I had another object in sending engine, to wit: Two trains from Jackson were expected, and I wanted to know the condition of the road; alsof 500 cavalry. I would therefore respectfully suggest that Colonel Jackson be ordered with his command to destroy these Federal stores atands upon, or whether I shall move up to the line of Vicksburg and Jackson. They will not have for some time troops enough to send up the ri
ints like St. Louis, where the Free-Labor interest had, from the force of circumstances, silently and suddenly achieved a practical preponderance, the journals, the religious organizations, and the political parties, were all immeasurably subservient to the Slave Power. In fact, the chief topic of political contention, whether in the press or on the stump, had for twenty years been the relative soundness and thoroughness of the rival parties in their devotion to Slavery. On this ground, Gen. Jackson had immensely the advantage of J. Q. Adams, so far as the South was concerned, when they were rival candidates for the Presidency; as Gen. Harrison had some advantage of Mr. Van Buren; Mr. Polk of Mr. Clay; Gen. Taylor of Gen. Cass; Gen. Pierce of Gen. Scott; and, lastly, Major Breckinridge of John Bell. In Kentucky, in the State canvass of 1859, Mr. Joshua F. Bell, American candidate for Governor, had tried hard to cut under his Democratic antagonist, Beriah Magoffin, but had failed, an
ssurances from Southern sources. Among the captures by Gen. Grant's army, during his glorious Mississippi campaign of 1863, were several boxes of the letters and private papers of Jefferson Davis, found in an out-house on a plantation between Jackson and Vicksburg. Several of these letters were given to the public by their captors, many of them bearing the signatures of Northern men of note, who have never denied their authenticity. These letters throw a clear light on the state of Southerbe felt and respected as first among nations — could not be quenched even in their own life-blood. And, on the other hand, the flag rendered illustrious by the triumphs of Gates and Greene and Washington — of Harrison, Brown, Scott, Macomb, and Jackson — of Truxtun, Decatur, Hull, Perry, Porter, and McDonough — was throughout a tower of strength to the Unionists. In the hours darkened by shameful defeat and needless disaster, when the Republic seemed rocking and reeling on the very brink of
e number of prisoners we have taken will amount to at least one thousand. We have captured seven of the enemy's guns in all. A portion of Garnett's forces retreated; but I look for their capture by Gen. Hill, who is in hot pursuit. This expectation was not realized. The pursuit was only continued two miles beyond the ford; when our weary soldiers halted, and the residue of the Rebels, under Col. Ramsey, turning sharply to the right, made their way across the mountains, and joined Gen. Jackson at Monterey. A strong Union force, under Gen. Cox, made an advance from Guyandotte simultaneously with Gen. McClellan's on Beverly, capturing Barboursville after a slight skirmish, and moving eastward to the Kanawha, and up that river. At Scarytown, some miles below Charleston, a detachment of 1,500 Ohio troops, under Col. Lowe, was resisted July 17th by a smaller Rebel force, well posted, under Capt. Patton, and repulsed, with a loss of 57 men. Five officers, including two Colonel

Doc. 174.-the Missouri treason. Letter from Gen. D. M. Frost to Gov. Jackson. St. Louis, Mo., April 15, 1861. His Excellency C. F. Jackson, Governor of Missouri:-- Sir: You have doubtless observed by this morning's despatches, that the President, by calling seventy-five thousand of the militia of the different States into the service of his Government, proposes to inaugurate civil war on a comprehensive plan. Under the circumstances, I have thought it not inappropriate that I should offer some suggestions to your Excellency, in my capacity of commanding officer of the first military district. Presuming that Mr. Lincoln will be advised by good military talent, he will doubtless regard this place as next in importance, in a strategic point of view, to Charleston and Pensacola. He will therefore retain at the arsenal all of the troops now there, and augment it as soon as possible. The commanding officer of that place, as you are perhaps aware, has strengthened his posi
where brisk firing was at the time going on. Here was the Ninth infantry, Colonel Jackson, who had gallantly met the enemy at close quarters, and nobly sustained ththe regiments and battery of Ord's command, together with the gallantry of Colonels Jackson, McCalmont, and Taggart, and Lieutenant-Colonels Kane, Higgins, and Penroseports as worthy of notice his personal staff, and also Colonels McCalmont and Jackson, Lieut.-Colonel Kane, Captain Easton, First Pennsylvania artillery; Captain Niber of killed found in front of the position occupied by the Ninth infantry, Col. Jackson, is, in my estimation, proof enough of the gallantry and discipline of that flict — whilst Easton's and the enemy's batteries were engaged, and before Colonel Jackson, of the Ninth regiment infantry, Pennsylvania reserve, had his fierce encofield. No one of them, however, in my estimation, behaved more nobly than Colonel Jackson, who led his regiment at once into close quarters with the enemy. I mus
a stand? What! give up their city without striking a blow? The people were astonished and indignant at the way they were handed over to the enemy's mercy and occupation. But what could they do? When generals, and armed and drilled soldiers, give up and retire, what can unarmed and undisciplined citizens do before a foe advancing by land and water? Throw brickbats at them, said one. Indeed! that would be well enough, if the enemy would deal in the same missiles. The bones of Gen. Jackson, the defender of New-Orleans, must have turned in his grave, at the Hermitage, a few miles away, at such a surrender. A few months before, on urgent call, every man who had a rifle or double-barrel gun, had brought it forward and given it up for army service. Not fifty serviceable guns could our citizens have mustered. No, not even pikes, though they had just enrolled themselves and resolved to have them made, and if Gen. Johnston made a stand before the city, they were resolved to s
