prise you, for I am no longer in my comfortable office in the good city of St. Louis, but one of Price's rebels, camped in this out-of-the-way place, near the Indian nation. As you desire to know evransferred the archives to Boonville, about eighty miles above, on the Missouri River. Ex-Governor Sterling Price was named general in chief of these forces, whenever they could be gathered, and seven; Brevet Major, August twentieth, 1847, and held that rank in the Fourth Infantry when he joined Price in June, 1861. He was immediately appointed Brigadier General by Governor Jackson, and has beenpon that place, in order to crush the rebels the instant they stirred. At this critical moment, Price being sick and unable to attend to business, Colonel Marmaduke took command of our force, if a b making dispositions for our capture, and had full command of the railways, word was sent to General Price at Lexington to hurry along with his recruits, so as to form a junction with Jackson's small
lowed; and last came the hero and patriot, Sterling Price, with his ragged, half-fed, and ill-armed e right of the road, assisted by Pearce, while Price was on the left of it; and thoughtless of danghed up the ground in our front. Yet there old Price, our gallant commander, rode up and down the led in our favor on the right, Lyon was pushing Price with great vigor in the centre and left. Our At length, owing to the success of our right, Price was reenforced both with men and artillery; peansit of any number of troops from St. Louis. Price determined to march forward and attack it, butle these events were transpiring at Lexington, Price received word (September eighteenth) that Gene The Missourians then effected a junction with Price, and instilled new ardor into the whole army. was fast approaching the north ferry landing, Price got up steam on his captured boats, and transp in various regiments.

For the next two weeks scarcely any sound was heard but that of axe-men engaged in felling trees; and within a very short time we were all well housed in log-huts, covered with layers of straw and mud. The fire-places being large, admitted sticks of wood four feet long; and sometimes ten logs of this length constituted a fire. Some bought stoves to cook on, and built additional dwellings for their servants; but within the fortnight all were comfortably provided for. Our commanders occupied some princely residences owned by Union men in Maryland, who had been large lottery-dealers, and possessed
sands. A few days after Mulligan's surrender, Price had not less than twenty-five thousand men aro field. With almost superhuman exertions, Price managed to keep around him some fifteen thousaought themselves threatened, and halted, while Price's main army had stolen several long marches upning that the troops of Fremont had retreated, Price immediately prepared for the pursuit.

All the men know is that drums are beating for something, and they turn out with alacrity to ascertain what that something is.

Take a case in point: At the battle of Oak Hill, in Missouri, the camps and commands of Price and McCulloch were some distance apart, and the Missourians, it is said, were so much accustomed to beating drums at all times, that when they were suddenly attacked by Lyon, McCulloch took no notice of the call, until Sigel opened fire upon his pickets, when he ascertained that for once the Missouri drummers meant something by their thumpings. I do not say that such a thing would happen with us, for as volunteers we are the best drilled in essentials of any troops in the world, and are eve
