instance, been again directed to send five thousand men fully equipped for the defence of the capital, which had already a garrison of seventy thousand men; he protested, but was obliged to send two Illinois regiments to the army of Kentucky. He had, however, fifty-five thousand men left, out of which he could easily have disposed of a sufficient force to keep Price in check. The garrisons which occupied Cairo, Paducah, and the two points adjacent to Bird's Point, in Missouri, and Fort Holt, in Kentucky, did not number less than twenty thousand men. The strength and disposition of Fremont's army, including the home-guards, were as follows: At St. Louis6,899 men. Under Pope5,488 men At Lexington2,400 men At Jefferson City9,677 men At Rolla4,700 men At Benton3,059 men At Cape Girardeau650 men At Bird's Point and Norfolk3,510 men At Cairo4,826 men At Fort Holt3,595 men At Paducah7,791 men Under Lane2,200 men At Monroe and near Cairo900 men —— Total55,695 men Af

The horsemen, however, followed in pursuit for ten or fifteen miles, until the enemy were completely scattered and dispersed. The railroad east of Brookfield is now open, and no more Secession camps will be made within twenty miles. Gen. Grant telegraphs to me that the first gun is in position at Fort Holt, Kentucky. J. C. Fremont, Major Gen'l Commanding. Jefferson City, Mo., Sept. 11. --A messenger from Sidallia states that Capt. Jamison's Kansas Jay Hawker's had defeated the notorious Dr. Staples, at the head of five hundred rebels, completely routing them and killing their leader. This will restore peace to Pettia and the surrounding counties, as Staples and McGoffin, who was captured some days since, were the principal instigators of secessionism in that section. I
m, showing him the way by which they might get rid of this institution as soon as possible. Mr. Kellogg (Ill.) was in favor of the postponement of the resolution, so that the true spirit and purpose of the President's recommendation might be known. It should be considered calmly. In this view he believed that it would meet with the approbation of three-fourths of the members of the Ubuse. There was no occasion for raising questions which could only result in antagonisms. Mr. Wickliffe (Ky.) while advocating a full chance for the discussion of this measure, said he must have a better commentator than Mr. Bingham to satisfy him of the constitutional power of the Government to purchase the slaves of rebels or any other parties. Mr. Diven (N. Y.) was in favor of a postponement. Congress should consider such subjects as these like patriots and not partisans. He called the message as a bow of hope and promise. Mr. Thomas (Mass.) said he was in favor of the resolution

There would be no peace till they are subdued, not by compromise and concession, but by bullets and men. On motion of a member, a resolution was adopted, calling on the Secretary of the Treasury to furnish a statement of the public debt up to this date, together with a statement of the average rate of interest. Mr. Wickliffe (Ky.) introduced a bill which was referred to the Committee on Military Affairs, providing, that whereas, 190,000 more volunteers than were authorized by the act of July last have been mustered, and the money to pay them appropriated during the present session, that the corps of volunteers shall not exceed the number now in the service, unless further authorized by act of Congress. Also, that it shall not be lawful to receive as soldiers, or arm, the fugitive slaves that may be captured by t
