Brig. Gen. Prince.

This officer, who was captured by our forces in the fight at Southwestern Mountain, on Saturday last, is an officer of the old U. S. army. In the Mexican war he acted as Adjutant-General of the brigade commanded by Gen. Sterling Price, whose confidence and esteem he possessed. When the present war broke out Prince was a Captain of dragoons, at Fort Leavenworth, and afterwards became commandant of that post. In his intercourse with the people of Missouri and Kansas he is represented to have acted with gentlemanly courtesy, and had the respect of those who opposed the policy of his Government. Such was his leniency towards the Confederates in Missouri that he incurred the suspicion and ill will of such tyrants as Siegal, Lane, &c. These facts we obtain from an officer connected with Gen. Price's staff during his celebrated Missouri campaign.
