m Missouri. There is no little chagrin and howling over the dashing and determined operations of General Price in Missouri. He has started the fox from his covert, and presses him so closely that he has no time to betake himself to his hole and back down for a fight. The old hero's heart is in his work. He is fighting again on his own broad lands and his own flowery prairies. It is the father fighting for the homes of his children, and his sons are following their sire, for Shelby, Marmaduke and Clarke are there, while Cooper and "Bill Anderson" are swelling the train. The enemy attribute the commencement of their misfortunes to the scandalous defeat of Banks on Red river last spring. Since that time we have crossed the Red, the Arkansas, the White, and now the Missouri river; so that, instead of having the Red and Wachita rivers as a line of defence, the enemy have now their old work to do over again — to drive us from Northern Missouri. Price has taken Jeff. Thomp
ney, who is Grand Seigneur of the county, informed the members that there were forty thousand in the State of Illinois, well armed, and that they could depend upon eighty thousand in that State.--There were about forty thousand in Missouri, twenty thousand being in St. Louis and vicinity. The officers said that, in May and June, there was to be an invasion at three points: into Ohio, to be led by Morgan or Wheeler; into Indiana, to be led by Longstreet; and into Missouri, to be led by Marmaduke or Price; and, in case the rebels came into Illinois, the brethren of the organization were to shake bands and be friends. An assessment was made on the lodges for the purchase of arms.--Their lodge was assessed for two hundred dollars; it was collected by a Colonel Barry, or Barrett, of St. Louis. The arms were to come from Nassau to Canada, and were to be brought to the Canada line by the Confederate authorities, but the Order was to pay the coat of transportation from Nassau to the Ca

ontents: The reported defeat of General Price in Missouri--Yankee statements about it. Telegrams from St. Louis on the 27th say that General Price has been driven below Fort Scott, and that among the prisoners captured from him were Generals Marmaduke and Cabell. From this we infer that the reported death of General Cabell at Pilot Knob a few days since is incorrect. In the great battle in which Price is reported to have been defeated, on the 23d, the Yankee loss is put at seventy-fivespersed. On Tuesday, we had several fights with him between Mound City and Fort Scott, in all of which he was badly whipped, fusing one thousand five hundred prisoners and ten or twelve pieces of artillery. Among the prisoners are Major. General Marmaduke and Brigadier-General Cabell, several colonels and other officers. Price was again attacked yesterday morning a short distance north of Fort Scott and driven pell-mell in a southeasterly direction. He burned two hundred wagons yester

ur batteries and infantry lines. It was somewhat dark, however, and of course firing was not so effective as it would have been had our troops had a good view of the enemy. At this hour (6 A. M.) all is quiet. From General Price. The New York Herald has the following paragraph in its situation article, but takes good care not to publish any of the telegrams to which it refers: General Pleasanton's official dispatches confirm previous reports of the capture of the rebel Generals Marmaduke and Cabell. Our St. Louis dispatches show that the accounts heretofore received of the overwhelming defeat and hurried and disorganized retreat from Missouri of the remnant of Price's army have not been exaggerated. Included in the large number of his men captured by the Union troops are about one hundred commissioned officers. The Latest from Sherman. A telegram from Nashville, dated the 31st, says: Direct communication with Atlanta by rail is open and secure, althou
t known what was the cause, but it is supposed to have been the usual picket firing. From Georgia. The best news that we have from Georgia is, that our troops have commenced active operations against the foraging parties which the Yankees, in Atlanta, are sending out. Last week, our cavalry captured a forage train in the vicinity of the city, and brought off three hundred and fifty mules. The wagons were not brought off. There was a cavalry attack by Kilpatrick on Wheeler, last week, which was repulsed. From Missouri. Private advices from Missouri state that Price has not left, nor does he intend leaving, the State. He has accumulated horses, arms, ammunition and men, and is pursuing a premeditated course as to his route southward. His acquisitions have all been preserved, and he has, at present, the strongest mounted force in the Confederacy. There is no news yet confirming the Yankee statements concerning the capture of Generals Marmaduke and Cabell.
ne column on the north side and the other on the south side of the Missouri river, with instructions to clear the country of guerrillas. Advices from the Upper Missouri say that General Sully and his companies are at Sioux City." (And the following for an election card.) "A private dispatch from Springfield, Missouri, says our troops whipped Price again at Newton country, Missouri, date not given. We now hold the town, and the rebels are retreating into Arkansas. "Major-General Marmaduke, Brigadier-General Cabel, and four rebel colonels, captured by General Pleasanton at the battle at Osage, left here yesterday for Johnson's island. From six to eight inches of snow fell here yesterday," --A party of McNeal's cavalry caught a New York cavalry detachment napping, about fifteen miles from Cumberland, Maryland, on Tuesday morning, and killed three and wounded several; they took the remainder prisoners. This is presumed to be the same party that made the raid near
n the partisans of Blunt and Pleasanton concerning the pursuit of Price, and it will be hard to make up history, when referring to Price's invasion, correctly, in the light of the present conflicting accounts. The arrival of the rebel Generals Marmaduke and Cabell, with five colonels, sixty other commissioned officers, and about eight hundred privates of Price's army, who were captured, as heretofore stated, created quite a sensation among the secessionists, who could not and would not believe that any such disaster as the one referred to had happened. The disgraceful part of the business was the treatment accorded to Marmaduke and Cabell and the five colonels. They were taken to Barnum's Hotel without a guard, and allowed the liberty of the hotel on parole not to escape. Here, at a first-class hotel, they lived like princes, receiving their friends and putting on innumerable airs. The event created such indignation among Union men that they were hustled off the day after th
n, whose name we may not now furnish, with two hundred, was to take the west side, the operation to be superintended by Marmaduke, who was to have the remaining fifty men as a reserve corps, ready to act where wanted. The programme was to break dowave been otherwise than successful had it not been nipped in the bud by a premature exposure of the whole scheme. With Marmaduke at their head, the rebels were to march into the city and take possession of the court-house and square as the base of so quickly overwhelmed as that effective opposition would be impossible, and that they could then, under their leader, Marmaduke, march in any direction with perfect impunity. The scheme was well concocted. It lacked only one essential — a suct. He now sees the deep guilt of the whole transaction and the depth of the gulf on whose brink he has been lying. Marmaduke has made a partial confession, or rather a series of admissions, which, as far as they go, fully substantiate Mr. Walsh
Fayetteville. General Johnston's defeat of the enemy last Sunday, the 19th instant, occurred at Bentonsville, near the Neuse river. By these facts, we are informed that Sherman has been pushing towards Raleigh in two columns--one moving due north from Fayetteville, the other northwest from Newbern. General Hardee fought the former, General Johnston the latter. News from Fort Warren. A returned prisoner, who left Fort Warren on the 13th instant, informs us that the following Confederate Generals are in that prison, and well: Major-General Edward. Johnson, of Virginia; Brigadier-Generals Gordon, Smith and Frazier, of Tennessee; Brigadier-General Jones, of Virginia; Brigadier-General Henry R. Jackson, of Georgia, and Brigadier-Generals Cabell and Marmaduke, of the Trans-Mississippi Department. Brigadier-General Page has been sent to Fort Delaware. Major Harry Gilmor is also in Fort Warren, held as a "guerrilla" chief, and not subject to exchange, as the Yankees say.
