Price at the close of the Missouri campaign proper, halSpringfield. While recruiting and drilling his men, Price watched for the first movements of the enemy, and ealy in January, 1862, the Federals began to advance. Price had taken up a strong position and fortified it, exp in person to take command of the combined forces of Price and McCulloch, and reached their headquarters on theIndians, moved out of camp on the 4th of March, with Price and McCulloch's forces, his intention being to surro order upon them, and fell back upon the main body. Price's forces constituted our left and centre, while McCus left, proposing to him to hold his position, while Price's left advance might be thrown forward over the whole history of the war; and the forces of Van Dorn and Price were to be summoned from what was supposed to be the
ruler, who should carry out the designs of Congress and watch over the liberties of the people and the safety of the Constitution, and a military leader, Imperator, or commander-in-chief, who should be entrusted with the conduct of the war, and look to Congress and the Executive for the means to carry out his plan. The scheme was this: Gen. R. E. Lee was to be commander-in-chief and have the army of the Potomac; Johnston to be entrusted with the war in the Valley of the Mississippi East; Price in Missouri; Kirby Smith in Louisiana and Texas; Bragg in the South; Beauregard in the South-east, while Jackson, Longstreet, Hill, Whiting, and the other promising officers were to carry out their views. The commanders of divisions, above named, were to constitute a board of advisers to Congress, and each to be entrusted with discretionary powers in his own district.

To the unknown and unrecorded dead. Operations in the Trans-Mississippi. In other quarters of the war less important than Virginia and Tennessee, the latter part of the year 1862 was without considerable interest. Since the commands of Price and Van Dorn had moved east of the Mississippi, the campaign in the extensive country west of that river had become feeble and irregular. It was marked, however, by one battle-that of Prairie Grove — the dimensions of which were large for that can Buren. Owing to delays occasioned by crossing the river and the bad condition of our transportation, the command did not reach the camp on Cove Creek until the evening of the 5th. The position was six miles from Cane Hill, the same where Gen. Price halted on his retreat from Springfield in the winter of 1861. When Gen. Hindman reached this place, he learned that Blunt was camped at Cane Hill, and that Gen. Herron, with five thousand men, was pushing on rapidly from Springfield to reinfor

Holmes had Price's Division of infantry, consisting of Parsons' Missod fort, in the rear of the centre of the city. Gen. Price was not in favour of an attack. He argued that ted the eclat of victory. He replied with warmth: Gen. Price, I intend to attack Helena immediately, and captu; Gen. Fagan was to attack the southern fort; and Gen. Price was to assault and capture the centre fort — the ' brigade, who encountered an outpost of the enemy. Price moved in column of division, the 9th Missouri InfantMarmaduke were at work. The command was given by Gen. Price to charge with fixed bayonets. The troops moved ed once, and were soon in possession of the fort. Price's division had done the work assigned it.

Kirby Smith was commanding the Trans-Mississippi Department, with headquarters at Shreveport. Gen. Price was temporarily commanding the district of Arkansas, with headquarters in the field, in the neighbourhood of Camden. The Confederate force in Arkansas numbered about eight thousand effective men. That of the Federals was conjectured to be aboun attempting to take the ground he had lost, the enemy commenced falling back immediately, leaving his dead and wounded on the field. As night fell, Gen. Smith arrived upon the field, ordered Churchill's corps back to Arkansas to the relief of Gen. Price, and directed Gen. Taylor to follow up the enemy. The Confederate loss in the battle of Pleasant Hill was two hundred killed, five hundred wounded, and about two hundred and fifty prisoners. The Federal loss was killed three hundred, wounded

Price entered Missouri, crossing the State line frlby, Marmaduke, and Fagan. From Poplar Bluff, Price advanced, by the way of Bloomfield, to Pilot K Cape Girardeau. Pilot Knob was evacuated, and Price thus obtained a strongly fortified position, eroops, and the country was surprised to find Gen. Price moving almost without molestation through this remote region of the war. From Pilot Knob Gen. Price moved north to the Missouri River, and contid men and eight rifled guns, were operating in Price's rear. On the 23d October, Gen. Price was brGen.
