MORE FIGHTING IN MISSOURI.
Reported Surrender of Mulli
THE WAR IN MISSOURI.
ST. LOUIS, Friday, Sept. 20.
A gentleman named KING, who left a point
on the Missouri River, opposite Lexington,
Wednesday night, arrived this morning, reports
that a 6evere fight took place on Tuesday for
the possession of three ferry-boats which lay
at the levee. PRICE'S forces advanced on the
boats in two bodies, one from above aud the
other from below the town, and after a very
sharp engagement they w ere repulsed. The
boats were not in fair range of Col. MULLI
GAN'S guns, his fortifications being so situated
BS to prevent him from commanding them
completely, and his force was too small to ad
mit of his making a sortie against PRICE'S
overwhelming numbers ; but Mr. KING says
he saw twelve wagon loads of killed and wound
ed rebels taken oil after the fight. lie aiso
says PRICE assaulted Col. MULLIGAN'S fortifica
tions four or five times on Wednesday, but
was repulsed each time with a loss of between
300 and -100.
Reinforcements from the North, probably
tinder Gen. STURGIS, were expected to arrive
late on Wednesday ; but as PRICE had posses
sion of the ferry-boats, they would not be able
to cross the river, and, of course, could be of
little or no service to MULLIGAN. Mr. KING'S
account is quite incoherent, and entire reliance
is Dot placed in it here. There is little ques
tion, however, that a battle has taken place,
but the details are yet unknown.
FT. LOUIS, Friday, Sept. 20.
The following additional particulars in re
ference to affairs at Lexington have been as
certained. The first attack upon the fortifica
tions is said to have been made ou Thursday
of last week, but this is certainly a mistake, as
Gen. PRICE did not leave Warrcnburgh, forty
miles south of Lexington, until Wednesday
night. The attack was probably made on
Moudav, as previous advices, with aboutrß,ooo
men. The engagement lasted two hours,when
the rebels were repulsed, with a loss of 10U
kilied, and between 2UO and 400 wounded.—
Our loss is reported at five kilied and several
wounded. The fortifieatious are situated at
the edge of the town, on a bluff, overlooking
the river. The works are of earth, seven feet
high, twelve feet thick, with a ditch of six
feet deep aud twelve feet broad. Surround
ing them is another and smaller work erected
inside, defeuued by a ditch—the whole capable
of holding 10,000 troops.
The attack on Wednesday was determined,
and lasted nearly all day.
The reinforcements from the North under
Gen. STURGIS probably number 3,000 ; but
should they be unable to cross the river,which
is quite likely, the only aid they can render
will be to sweep with their artillery the points
occupied by the rebels. It. is confidently bop-1
ed, however, that the six thousand troops that !
left Jefferson City on Wednesday,by steamers, i
will Ire able to land at or near Lexington, and '
cut their way through the enemy's forces and
join Col. MULLIGAN. It is said that MULLIGAN
expressed confidence in being able to bold bis
position against any force not more than ten
times greater than bis.
THE COMMAND AT LEXINGTON
CHICAGO, Sept. 22,1861.
A special dispatch to The Times, sent from
Qincy at one o'clock this morning, says the |
mail agent of the Hannibal and St. Joseph i
Railroad, who arrived at seven o'clock Sat
urday Jnight from St. Josephs, states that
Col. Mulligan and his whole command at
Lexington surrendered to Gen. Price on Fri
day morning at live o'clock.
The siege continued from Monday until the
time of the surrender. Col. Muliigaa and
men were without water all Thursday and Fri
day, aud were completely exhausted. They
fought desperately, but were compelled to yield
to superior numbers. The Union loss in killed
is said to be eight or nine hundred, while
that of the Rebels is some three or four
thousand, with a proportionate number of
The reports of the battle and the result is
fuliy corroborated by passengers ou the same
train. The news was brought by stage to
Hamilton, which is the nearest point on the
railroad to Lexington, being a distance of fif
ty miles. Of the fact ct the surrender there
can be no doubt.
The 3d Regiment of lowa Volunteers, on
the way to Lexington to re-enforce (date not
given) suddenly aud unexpectedly came across
a body of 4,000 Rebels at Blue Mills, Mis
souri, when a battle commenced and continued
an hour and a half.
The lowa regiment was about to retire
when the Rebels retreated and crossed the
river in time to full into the hands Gen
Lane's Brigage (4,000 strong) who were also
marching to re-euforce Col. Mulligan. The
Unionists captured seven or eight hundred,
and killed 200. The Rebels fled, and cross
ed the river, when the lowa regiment started
In the first encounter the lowins lost 10
killcuaud 30 wounded. Ten or twelve Rebel
prisoners was brought into Quincy from St.
Joseph on Saturday, two or three of whom
are known to have been concerned in the burn
ing |of the Piatt Bridge a few weeks since
A special dispatch to 'lhe Tribune, from
head quarters at St. Louis, say the surrender
of Col. Mulligan, was not believed there, but
that re-enforcements were pushing toward
him from four different directions.
CAIRO, Saturday, Sept. 21, 1801.
There was a skirmish yesterday below Fort
Ilolt., between a company of the 10th Ilegi

Drafting for the army begins in this city

Richmond Examiner as saying that Jeff. Da

illness as to take an airing last Saturday in a

A REFORM CANDIDATE ! —The late Demo
cratic Mass Convention, having no idea that
there were questions of greater public impor
tance than the salary of members of the Leg
islature, after applauding the Legislative
career of Messrs. TRACY and Buss, resolved
to support them, providing they would agree
to serve for three dollars a day, and appoint
ed a Committee to interrogate them upon the
subject. The correspondence it seems, is not
satisfactory to the Committee, and they have
placed Col JOII.V F. MEANS in nomination as
a candidate for Representative. We have not
room this week for the correspondence of
Messrs. TRACY and Buss—but we have no
doubt, the reasons they assign for not at once
accepting the propositions of the Committee,
will meet the approval of their constituency.
In the meantime we trust our Republicans will
not all rush into this Reform movement, ineti
uted by Col. P101.1.F.T, and to be carried out bv
Col. MEANS. The bold hypocrisy of this un
timely movement we shall comment upon more
fully next week.
—The announcement of the Committee
will appear in our next, with the letter of
Messrs TRACY and Buss.
Our latent news from Lexington reports the
surrender of Col. Mulligan. The intelligence,
however, is received with doubt both at Wash
ington and St. Louis, and at the latter place
re-enforccnieuts were still going forward on
Sunday. The report comes in a dispatch to
Chicago from Quiney, Illinois, where it was
brought by the mail agent of the Hannibal
aud St. Joseph Railroad, and is confirmed by
passengers on the same train. It was brought
to Hamilton, about 60 miles from Lexington,
by stage. According to this statement, Col.
Mulligan was compelled, at last, to yield to
superior numbers, after four days hard fight
ing—his men having been, for the last two
days, without a k drop of water. The report
of the loss on both sides is about, the same as
A part of the story is that a body of 4,000
Rebels bad encountered the lowa 3d, and af
terward fell into the hands of Gen Lane.—
The date of this battle is not given. It had
not,'however, been heard of at Jefferson City
on Friday, a dispatch of that date to The
St. Louis Democrat, reporting that Gen. Larie
had arrived at Lexington. But of the truth
of this statement there seems to have been no
positive knowledge in St. Louis on Saturday.
Ou the whole, considering tho round about
way in which the report of Muilgian's surren
der comes, the fact that it is said to have
taken place early on Friday morning, and that
no such information, in any other way, had
reached St. Louis on Sunday morning, there
is certainly room for hope that it is without
foundation. We shall undoubtedly know the
truth in a few days.
At Blue Mills Landing, on the Mississippi
river, on the 17th inst, a desperate fight took
place between 500 of the Ist lowa Regiment,
under Lieut.-Col. Seott, and about 4,000 of
the Rebels. After an hour's fightirg, Col.
Scott retired slowly and in good order. Af
terward Col. Smith's command came to his
aid, but night fell before the lighting could be
renewed ; when morning again came the ene
my had retired, and there was no one to strive
against. In this engagement Lieut. Scott lost
5 killed, 84 wounded, G missing.
From Kentucky we have a proclamation
from Gen. Robert Anderson calling on the
loyal citizens of the Static to sustain and fight
for the Government. The rebel Gen. Buck
ner has also issued a proclamation, wherein he
makes a lying pretenses of aiding the State to
preserve a neutral position, and promising to
depart with his troops as soon as the National
forces leave. Private advices from tha Sttate
speak of the spread of the Union feeling, and
say that the approach of Gen. Buckuer has
arroused the indignation of the people, who
are rushing to arms for the purpose of assist
ing to drive the Rebels from their soil.
A deserter from the Rebel army, just ar
rived in Washington, says that Beauregard
has 185,000 men under him ; that they are
well fed, well shod, well clothed, that they are
regularly paid, and in excellent health and
spirits. Oa the other hand, a person described
as a m "vst intelligent man, just from Manassas,
states that the Rebel nrmy is demoralized,
that great numbers of them are leaving for
their homes in the Gulf States, and that tbey
have not even force enough to defend them-
selves from oar attsck, to say nothing of
moving on Washington.
1 Our advices from Missouri contain a con
firmation of the account of the repulse of the
rebels under Price at Lexington, and some
additional particulars of the operation of the
first two days, but no indication of the final
result. It appears that Price on the first day
made an effort to gain possession of three
ferry-boats lying in the liver on the Lexing
ton side, for which purpose he detailed two
large bodies of men to approach both above
and below. Such was the vigor with which
they were met, however, that they were repell.
Ed with heavy loss, and subsequently removed
twelve wagon loads of killed and wounded.
The next day Price assaulted the National
intrcnchments fourorfive times, but was each
time repulsed, with a loss of between three
and four hundred men. There appears to be
little doubt that the National re enforcements
arrived in season to render proper aid to Col.
Mulligan in his gallant defence of the place.
From Southern Kansas we learn that Rains
was marching towards the North, but that
Gen. Lane with the Kansas troops, was close
upon [his heels. Another body of about a
thousand rebels, supposed to have beee engag
ed in the recent bridge-burnings, was being
pursued by National troops from station on
the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. Skir
misbesc are reported to have taken place
near Kansas City and Ironton, in which the
rebels have been worsted.
A descent was made on the 12th iust., upon
a rebel camp at Petersburg!), Hardy County,
Ya., by Capt. Kidd's company of cavalry
from New Creek, Md., and a company of in
fantry from Fort Pedleton. The rebels only
waited for one shot frotn a twelve pounder,
and then fled. Several were killed and wound
ed, a number taken prisoners, and their camp
and all their equipage were captured. On
the same day a body of 250 rebels were
attached and dispersed at. Barboursville.
Interesting intelligence from the Pacific
coast reaches us by the I'ony Express, which
passed the outer telegraph station 101 miles
west of Fort Kearney, on the 10th f-inst., hav
ing left San Francisco on the 7th. Since the
State election in California, the market had
taken a much firmer tone, the overwhelming
Union vote dispelling all fears of any domestic
troubles. The returns of the election were
stiil incomplete, but sufficient had been receiv
ed to insure the success of the Republican
ticket. The vote of the whole State was ex
pected to be 120,000, and so far as heard, the
Republicans had 45,500, the Union Democrats
20,500, and the Breekenridge Democrats 10.-
400. The United States Marshal, in accord
ance with the provisions of the confiscation
act, had commenced the seizure of vessels in
the harbor of San Frncisco. lie had already

DRAFTING BY TIIF. REBELS. —The Rebels

first State thoroughly by forcing every man

INDIAN* ALLIES. —The St. Louis papers re

that some thirteen hundred Indiun warriors—

have actually crossed the Arkansas river,
en-rout for Ben McCulloch's camp, to help
him carry on the war against the Union
This scheme of getting the (Indian tribe into
the conspiracy against the Union was set on
foot, we believe, by Gov. Rector, as early as
He corresponded with some of the princi
pal chiefs, making all manner of plausible mis
representations as to their interests between the
North and the South, and earnestly called up
on them to be ready, when the secession blow
was struck through the South, to promptly
espouse the cause of the latter. This was
nearly ftur months before Arkansas seceded.
The circumstance goes to show how elaborate
and thorough was the conspiracy-against the
Union, aud how reckless the plotters were in
regard to the mode of carrying on their pro

BISHOP SIMPSON AND THE STARS AND STRIPES.
Bishop Simpson, of the Methodist Episco
pal Church, recently delivered a sermon on
our national crisis in Chicago. It is de
scribed as being the most eloquent and over
whelming effort ever made by the Bishop.—
Thousands heard it, and were effected beyond
all precedent No language can describe the
grandeur and emotions of the occasion. At
one point in the sermon, and as the fitting
close of a most impassionate paragraph the
following noble sentiment was uttered : "We
will take our glorious flag—the fiag of our
country—and nail it just below the cross ! That
is high enough ! There let it wave as it
waved of old. Around it let us gather :
" First Christ's, then our Country's."
The New York II orld contains a
strenuous call for men and more forces in the
conduct of the war. It says : " had we half
a million on foot which Cougress voted, or
could we be assured of them by the first of
December, it is morally certain that the rebel
lion would meet its end before the heats of
the next summer. With our present force,
no man can say when it will be effected,or, in
deed, that it will be effected at all." And
again—" We should remember that every day
this fell treason keeps its stand, is a day ad
ded to its prestige, at tiie expenses of the good
tiacie of the Republic. If we crush this rebel
lion with one quick, decisive, overwhelming
blow, we shall take higher rank than ever
among the nations. If we allow a wavering,
drugging, lingering stuggle, acting on the de
fensive as long as we can, and in attack never
assured of success—we rhall wade through
dishonor, nod probably come out in defeat
Triumph is ours, if we will it, but we must
show ourselves more in earnest—must put
forth more of our strength."

We give below the law authorizing our vol
unteers to vote at the general elections. It
seems to be unqualified both as to State and
