The battle of Lexington.Official report of Gen. Price. Headquarters Missouri State Guard,Camp Wallace, Lexington, Sept. 23, 1861. To the Hon. Claiborn F. Jackson, Governor of the State of Missouri: I have the honor to submit to your Excellency the following report of the action which terminated on the 20th instant, with the surrender of the United States forces and property, at this place, to the army under my command: After chastising the marauding armies of Lane and Montgoresence of a watchful and desperate foe, manfully repelling every assault, and patiently awaiting my orders to storm the fortifications. No General ever commanded a braver or better army. It is composed of the best blood and the bravest men of Missouri. Where nearly every one, officers and men, behaved so well, as is known to your Excellency, (who was present with the army during the whole period embraced in this report,) it is impossible to make special mention of individuals, without se
turnpike bridge has been burned. Judge Ventrees, of Harden county, has been arrested for aiding the rebels. The rebel force under Humphrey Marshall have disbanded and gone home. Active preparations for a great battle. Jefferson City, Mo., Oct. 1. --General Fremont preserves strict silence regarding his plans, but is actively engaged preparing for the struggle, and is determined to rest his reputation upon the result of the coming contest, which will decide the fate of Missouri.--No blow will be struck till it can be made effective. Gen. Price's pickets extend to within eight miles of Georgetown, (67 miles from Jefferson City,) keeping him well posted regarding our movements. The Rev. Louis Republican learns that a statement is forthcoming from Col. Harding, in the absence of the General commanding this department, which will show beyond question the absolute impossibility of aid being rendered by Gen. Fremont before the battle of Wilson's Creek. Washin
Missouri and Kentucky. The Washington National Intelligencer contains the following article on the necessity of prosecuting a vigorous war in the West: Thtire frontier which divides the loyal from the disloyal States, extending from Missouri to Maryland, is bristling with the bayonets of the contending armies. Particuracy against the Government. Next to the city of Washington the States of Missouri and Kentucky engage, as they deserve to engage, the deepest interest of all lo all the States alike, whether slaveholding or non- slaveholding.--The loss of Missouri and Kentucky, by the subjugation with which they are now menaced, would inflicon cause, the war of invasion and subjugation now waged by the Confederates in Missouri and Kentucky, and with which Maryland is threatened, would become a war of devf defending the loyal status maintained by the great majority of the people of Missouri and Kentucky becomes apparent to every reflecting mind, and we doubt not the G
ttle in Eastern Virginia? Or has he, in late letters yet to reach this country, gone so far beyond all other letters in falsehoods and calumnies, that he thinks it prudent to be out of the way when they reach the eyes of the American people? Perhaps, having exhausted even his own invention in the art of lying at Washington, he is going to try the new material in General Fremont's command. Or the story of the brave defence of Lexington may have suggested to him that there was more war to be seen on the Missouri than on the Potomac. Or, perhaps, he is so proud, since the Bull Run affair, of his ability to describe a battle without witnessing it, that he thinks he might as well amuse himself with grouse-shooting, and write accounts of battles in Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri from a shooting-box in Illinois. Whatever be the motives that have induced this eccentric, imaginative writer to quit, Washington, there are reasons why the American people do not want to lose sight of him.
