quently show themselves in the bay. Escaped. The Memphis Appeal learns that Mr. E. J. Marshall, late telegraph operator at Paducah, Ky., who escaped with his instruments the day the Lincolnites took possession of that place, has arrived at Trenton, Tenn., safe and sound. A detachment of Hessian cavalry was sent in pursuit of him, but he managed to elude them. Aid for M'Culloch.

A noble Example. --An old man, seventy-three years old, living near Pine Bluff, Ark., by the name of Bush, took his young son and went with him to join McCulloch. In the battle of Springfield he took his position, and with an unexampled coolness and courage, as much execution with the rifle as any one in the battle. When his gun was struck by a ball and became useless, he went to a wounded Tennessean, who gave him his and his ammunition. The old man returned to his place and said, "Boys, now see what I'll do with the Minnie rifle. " Taking aim at the officers, at every fire one game to the ground. One Colonel and two Captains fell in quick succession. An order was given to fall back to a better position. The old man did not hear it, and besought them not to retreat. He naked where his boy was. Some one told him he had retreated. Overcome by grief, he sat down, laid his gun across his lap, and burst into tears. He was soon relieved, however, when he found his son in his
t dispatch reports that Gen. Price occupied the town of Lexington, from which it is fair to infer that Gen. Price was victorious. Reinforcements from Gen. Jim Lane were expected during the battle, but did not arrive. Lexington has been designated, by Gov. Jackson, as the future seat of government of Missouri, and its possession, by the Southern troops, at this time, is very important. The Fort Smith (Ark.) Times says: We learn from Henry Minehart, bearer of dispatches from Gen. McCulloch's camp, who arrived here last night, that the Jayhawkers, under Jim Lane and Montgomery, are becoming very troublesome. They have several thousand men. Gen. Price is marching on Lexington, and thousands of Missourians are flocking to his standard. He has now 18,000 or 20,000 men, and will make a descent on Jefferson City soon. Union men are joining his standard, being driven to it from Fremont's proclamation. A blasphemous Lincolnite. A Dane, named Daniel Wilkins, says t
to existence. In that short time we have increased our territory one-fourth, and subjected the enemy to many disgraceful and disastrous defeats. But our brave, skillful, and able Generals, panting themselves for the battle, have restrained the ardor of their troops, pursued the Fabian, the Washingtonian, and Wellingtonian policy, and fought only when they were prepared and could fight on equal terms. Such has been the policy and practice of Beauregard, of Jolinston, of Magruder, of Lee, McCulloch, Wise, and Floyd; and our President, a distinguished scientific and practical soldier, and wise civilian, has concurred in, approved of, and directed this safe, prudent, humane, Fabian strategy. His Secretary of War, and the rest of his Cabinet, have agreed with him and were a unit on this subject. Everybody who knows anything about military affairs — everybody who is acquainted with the numbers, position, and all the surrounding circumstances of the opposing armies — speaks in terms of
ri have rallied. The people of Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana and other Southern States, seeing that the loyal Missourians were willing to help themselves, marched gallantly to their aid.--The army of three months men, hastily recruited by General McCulloch, won the first great victory at Springfield. Their terms of service having expired, they went home, and now General McCulloch is at the head of a new army enlisted for long service, and marching again for the heart of the State. The succeGeneral McCulloch is at the head of a new army enlisted for long service, and marching again for the heart of the State. The success at Springfield produced a great accession of recruits to the army of General Price and of General Rains, chiefly of Missouri volunteers; and the victory and whole sale capture of valuable munitions at Lexington are, in great part, the fruit of Springfield. Gen. Price is a true man, and a brave soldier. He is of the old Prince Edward (Va) race of Prices. He may be said to be in possession of all Western Missouri,--at the head, as he is, of twenty thousand men flushed with two victories,
y for the Confederacy were that confidence to be diminished by unjust criticism. The men who have fought our battles know better how to appreciate our Generals than peaceful citizens who have never smelt gunpowder. Such men as Johnston, Beauregard, Smith, and others who might be named, on the Potomac; such Generals as Lee and Loring in Western Virginia; such a master of his profession as Gen. Albert S. Johnston; such accomplished soldiers and strategists as Generals Hardee, Magruder, McCulloch, Price, Hill, Polr, and others, are not to be found in any other army on this continent.--The South has shown its good sense in calling to the control of its forces educated military men, and has been fortunate in securing not only soldiers, but men of sense and character, of dignity, self-respect, and conscience, who appreciate the responsibility of their positions, and have as much to lose by disaster as any one else in the Southern Confederacy; probably more. Having selected our agents

Mr. Gerard Hallock,
at Lexington, against 30,000 Federals. Ten thousand of the latter were out on a marauding expedition. The Federals were so much exhausted that they were unable to resist the Confederates. The following is Fremont's dispatch to Washington: "Lexington has fallen into Price's hands. Their winter supplies having been cut off, the reinforcements of fourteen thousand had no means of crossing the river in time to be of assistance. I am taking the d, and hope to be able to destroy the enemy before or after their junction with McCulloch's forces." A dispatch from Jefferson City says that Claib. Jackson is advancing on Booneville with 10,000, and that Price is marching towards Georgetown with 20,000, the Lexington army being doubled for that purpose. The steamer Clara Bell has been re-taken by the Confederates, with $30,000 in merchandize. Price's forces will doubtless in a few days amount to thirty or forty thousand. There is nothing of interest from Lexington.

Gen Clarke is moving hence in the same direction, with 20 cannon. Gen.Fremont's safety is endangered, and 8,000 of his troops have moved Paducah-ward from Columbus.
