men, it seems, had not been shocked by the military seizure by Secessionists, two weeks previous, of the Federal arsenal at Napoleon, April 23d. containing 12,000 Springfield muskets and a large amount of munitions and stores; nor by that of Fort Smith, April 24th. also containing valuable deposits of arms, munitions, and Indian goods. These, and many kindred acts of violence and outrage on the side of disunion, had been committed without a shadow of disguise, and with no other excuse than the treason of the perpetrators — Solon Borland, late U. S. Senator, having led the party that captured Fort Smith. Coercion was abhorred and execrated only when exercised in defense of the Union. Missouri was found in a most anomalous condition on the breaking out of the great struggle, destined so severely to try her integrity, as well as that of the nation. Though her slaves were less than a tenth of her total population, and her real interests were bound up in the triumph of Free Labor

McIntosh to the Trute Democrat Little Rock, Arkansas. called loudly for reenforcements to the Rebel array in the Indian Territory, and expressed apprehension that the Northern party might prove the stronger. A battle between the antagonistic Indian forces took place Dec. 9th, 1861, on Bushy creek, near the Verdigris river, 180 miles west of Fort Smith, the Confederates being led by Col. Cooper, the Unionists by Opothleyolo. The result was not decisive, but the advantage appears to have been with the Rebel party, the Unionists being constrained soon after to make their way northward to Kansas, where they received the supplies they so much needed, and where a treaty of close alliance was negotiated At Leavenworth, Feb. 1, 1862. between Opothleyolo and his followers on one side, and Col. Dole, U. S. Commissioner of Indian Affairs, on t
stand at Perryville, Aug. 26. Choctaw Nation; but they were too nimble to receive much damage, and he chased them by Fort Smith, whereof he took Sept. 1. bloodless possession. Col. J. M.

Blunt, leaving been on business to Kansas, was returning with a small cavalry escort to Fort Smith, when he was struck, Oct. 4. near Baxter's. springs, Cherokee Nation, by Quantrell, with 600 guerrillas, and most ofIndian Territory, tile raiders passed rapidly through the north-west corner of Arkansas, crossing the river eastward of Fort Smith, and evading any collision with our forces near that post as well as with those holding Little Rock, and entering southe Arkansas and vanished among the wilds beyond. McNeil here gave over the pursuit, moving deliberately up the river to Fort Smith. During this chase, he had been designated Oct. 20. to command of the Army of the Frontier, vice Gen. Blunt, reliev
le Rock with 7,000 men, almost simultaneously with Banks's advance to Alexandria; Gen. Thayer, with the Army of the Frontier, possibly 5,000 strong, having left Fort Smith the day previous, expecting to join him at Arkadelphia; while Col. Clayton, with a small force, advanced from Pine Bluff on Steele's left. Heavy rains, bad roain this affair was 50; that of the enemy was reported at 150. Next day, at the other side of the State, Gen. Gano, with 1,500 Rebels, surprised an outpost of Fort Smith, held by Capt. Mefford, with 200 of the 5th Kansas, whom he captured, with 82 of his men, after we had lost 10 killed, 15 wounded, to 12 killed, 20 wounded of the enemy. Gano, of course, got away before he could be reached from Fort Smith. Next month, Shelby, with some 2,000 men, struck Aug. 23. the line of railroad between Duvall's bluff and Little Rock, capturing most of the 54th Illinois, who were guarding three stations. Col. Mitchell was reported among the killed. Steele

l Chief of Cherokee Nation. Feb. 22, 1861. A correspondence was more recently opened between the rebel commander of Fort Smith and Ross. The letter of the former exhibits the solicitude with which the rebels of Arkansas await the attitude of the Cherokees:-- Headquarters, Fort Smith, May 15, 1861. sir:--Information has reached this post to the effect that Senator Lane, of Kansas, is now in that State raising troops to operate on the western borders of Missouri and Kansas. As it is igns. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your most obedient servant, J. R. Kannady, Lieut.-Col. Commanding, Fort Smith. Hon. John Ross, Principal Chief of Cherokee Nation.

o me, said, You know that my husband is not a favorite with the new President. My mind was resting on Mr. Lincoln as the new President, and I said I did not know that Bragg had ever met Mr. Lincoln, when Mrs. Bragg said, quite pointedly, I didn't mean your President, but our President. I knew that Bragg hated Davis bitterly, and that he had resigned from the army in 1855, or 1856, because Davis, as Secretary of War, had ordered him, with his battery, from Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, to Fort Smith or Fort Washita, in the Indian country, as Bragg expressed it, to chase Indians with six-pounders. I visited the quartermaster, Colonel A. C. Myers, who had resigned from the army, January 28, 1861, and had accepted service under the new regime. His office was in the same old room in the Lafayette Square building, which he had in 1853, when I was there a commissary, with the same pictures on the wall, and the letters U. S. on every thing, including his desk, papers, etc. I asked him if

The Missouri Democrat has a letter from a soldier at Fort Smith, Ark., bearing the date of March 5, in which the following passage occurs: Yesterday the citizens of Fort Smith raised a Palmetto flag in town, and one of the soldiers, private Bates, company E, First cavalry, went out and climbed up the tree upon which the flag was suspended, took it down and brought it into the garrison. Captain Sturgiss ordered him to take it and put it back where he got it. He said he never would. TFort Smith raised a Palmetto flag in town, and one of the soldiers, private Bates, company E, First cavalry, went out and climbed up the tree upon which the flag was suspended, took it down and brought it into the garrison. Captain Sturgiss ordered him to take it and put it back where he got it. He said he never would. The captain ordered him to the guard house, and in going he tore the flag in pieces. He was then ordered to be put in irons, and was sent to the blacksmith shop for that purpose; but the smith (a citizen) refused to put them on, and he was discharged in consequence. D company, First cavalry, farrier was then ordered to put them on, and he refused, and was sent to the guard-house. E company, First cavalry, farrier then put them on. The soldiery then gave three shouts for Bates, and the blacksmi
