Suppression of Newspaper extras on Sunday. --The Baltimore Exchange, of Saturday, says: A notice has appeared in some of the city dailies signed by Provost Marshal Dodge, forbidding the sale of newspaper extras on the Sabbath day. This step is said to have been taken at the request of parties who profess a great desire to have the day properly respected. At a Union prayer meeting held in Dr. Dunning's church, corner of Green and German streets, a resolution was adopted requesting the police authorities of the city to enforce the law forbidding the sale of the extras. At the same meeting a resolution was offered requesting the enforcement of the law in reference to playing musical instruments on Sunday. This, however, was lost.

Stevens, who left Springfield Tuesday, has reached here, and reports that on Tuesday morning the Federal pickets were to be extended beyond the old battle-ground at Wilson's Creek, the advance guard of the enemy having retreated from that position. Their advance guard at that point numbered 7,500 strong. Gen. Wyman had been appointed Provost Marshal of Springfield and the Federal lines were strictly guarded, no person being allowed to pass West or Southwest. The expedition under Col. Dodge, which left Rolla a few days since in quest of ex-judge Freeman's band of rebels, took possession of Houston, in Texas county, on the 4th instant, and captured a large amount of rebel property, and several prominent Secessionists, including some officers of the rebel army. A large mail for the rebel army was also captured, containing information of the position of the entire rebel force in Missouri. Capt. Wood, with his rangers, has gone forward to Spring Valley, to attack the main b

Mr. Edwards of the Methodist Church; Rev. Dr. Mitchell of the Presbyterian, and Rev. Mr. Dodge of the Baptist Church."

Camp Cooper near reville, November 30th, 1861. Messrs. Editors: The enclosed "prayer" was received the other day, accompanying a letter from Maryland, by the "underground railway."

Stewart, late of he First Light Division Maryland Volunteers. The freight next underwent an examination. There was a heavy supply of bacon, flour, sugar coffee, shoes, and clothing amongst it, but the officers declined seizing it as the parties to whom much of it was consigned were on board the steamer, and they declared that it was their usual winter supplies. These proceedings occupied the forenoon, when the police authorities here concluded to let the boat depart, especially as the male passengers were anxious to get home as soon as possible Marshal Dodge and Deputy McPhail have long been convinced of the fact, that contraband goods, letters and papers have been carried by the boats of the line, and therefore the detention and search were justifiable. Both of the accused have been discharged by the Provost Marshal.

[Special dispatch to the Missouri Democrat,] Rolla, Dec. 27. --Major General Curtis arrived in town this evening, and will assume command of the forces here to-morrow, superseding Gen. Siegel. This would seem to indicate a change of programme. Col. Dodge, while riding out on horseback this evening, received a flesh wound in the thigh from the accidental discharge of a pistol carried in his side pocket. The ball was extracted, and the wound will not prove so serious as was at first supposed. The railroad from this point to Franklin is strongly guarded at every point. It is reported that on Wednesday evening an attempt was made by a rebel squad to coral the pickets of Capt. Griffith's command, stationed at the Staunton station. The re

Artful Dodge. --We have heard of a fellow in Bedford, whose pluck and patriotism not being of the first order, set his wits to work to devise some means to get himself exempted. At last he hit upon the plan of putting some two or three dozen bees in the leg of his pantaloons, and on the day before the meeting of the board he put the plan in execution. On the day of meeting he had himself conveyed to Liberty, where the board was sitting, and, upon examination by two doctors learned in physics, his legs were found terribly swollen. Inquiry was made of the sufferer as to how long he had been afflicted, and upon his answering for several years, the doctors pronounced him unfit for service, and he was accordingly exempted. His wife, however, with a loquacity for which we suppose she gets no thanks from the would be exempt, let the cat out of the bag, and the trick coming to the knowledge of the board, the fellow was again summoned, and upon his examination the swelling before pro
