to have a good time, they picketed their horses, stacked their arms, and pitched in. One of our friends quietly slipped away and gave the alarm to Capt. Wilcox, who, with fourteen of his men, proceeded to the scene of merry-making, quietly took possession of the Hessians' horses and arms, and then captured the whole party, except the captain. The latter endeavored to escape, when he was shot. The prisoners and spoils were carried to Hopkinsville. Capt. W. is now in a condition to treat for the release of a few of his men, including a lieutenant, who were captured a short time since.--Memphis Appeal, December 24. An expedition, under command of Gen. Pope, successfully cut off a rebel camp near Shawnee Mound, Missouri, and scattered them, twenty-two hundred strong, in every direction. One hundred and fifty prisoners were taken, with most of the rebels' wagons, tents, baggage, horses, &c. A train of seventy wagons, well loaded for Price's rebel army, was captured.--(Doc. 231.)

The men were generally in fine spirits, and from the direction all supposed that we were destined for the stronghold of Price, at Osceola, acting as part of a grand concerted movement from four sides.

The next day, Monday, we made a splendid march, all the men being in good marching order; twenty-six miles brought us at sunset to Shawnee Mound, in Henry County. Here the reports of various companies of rebels began to come in from residents and from our scouts. One company of near five hundred was heard of at a point about twelve miles northwest, and several smaller bodies directly south of us, from Clinton to Butler. Gen. Pope then despatched his whole available force of cavalry, nearly seven hundred, before they had had three hours rest, after the five hundred near Morristown, while our men cooked a hearty meal, and retired to a so
