BATTLE OF DANE GREEK.

We publish in this afternoon's TELEGRAPH a
fulliaccount of the battle of Davis Creek, in
which, while we lost in , numbers, we gained a
partial victory. , The death of Gen. Lyon will
811 the country with gloom. He was a gallant
soldier and a loyal American citizen. He was ed
ucated at the 11. 8. military academy at West
Point, where he graduated with distinction in
1841, and finally rose to the rank of captain
in the second infantry, and by the recent choice
of the .Missouri volunteers became their Briga
dier General. He was in the prime of life as a
military commander, being , forty-two years of
age. His service has been principally upon the
frontiers—in the Florida, Texas, California,
Oregon, Kansas and other Indian and border
wars. He entered the military academy as ca
det. in June, 1887, and graduated in 1841. On
graduating from the military academy he re
ceived his commission as lieutenant in the army,
and waant once ordered to join the army in
Florida, then operating against the Indians.
After uncomplainingly passing through that
most disagreeable campaign among the ever
glades of Florida, he was stationed for some
years at various points on our western fron
Soon.after the commencement of hostilities
between the 'United States and Mexico, he was
ordered to join the northern line of operations
under General Taylor, and after reaching Mon
terey wait soon ordered to join the expedition
against Vera Cruz. In the bombardment and
capture at 'Vera Cruz. and the severely contested
battle of Contreras, Cherubuscoand others which
occurred between that place• and the city of
Mexico, bis ,antiyity and military skill found
full play. He took an active part in each and
all of them, and while fighting in the streets in
the streets in the city of Mexico, near the Belen
gateo on September 18, 1847, received a wound
from a musket ball. After the conclusion of

TEE SECRETARY OP WAR
While a few bitter partizans of the Breckin
ridge school of traitors in this locality are as
sailing Gen. Cameron, and rending the hand
that has heretofore fed and fostered many of
these wretches, it is cheering to quote the
good opinions of those at a distance who do not
stiffer their prejudices to interfere with their
patriotism, in doing justice to a distinguished
AFrarican statesman, and a high minded and pa
triotic public servant. It is not that Gen. Cam
eron needs defence, that we reprint the honest
and frank avowal of others in his favor, because
he has survived more abuse, conquered more
enemies, and outlived more slanders than all
other men in this nation. His triumphs, his
position, his influence in society and his power
in butanes% ate the monuments of his integrity
and moral worth, which such men as Messrs.
MalSow`ell and 13arrett seek in vain to deface ;
and which it is their only distinction that they
can attack with impunity. The veryinsolenceof
their assaults is the evidence of their ingrati
tug, and the illustration of a political career
fitly ending in treason to a country they have
p9lluted and prostrated with their political her

The article is as follows :

the more than flattering endorseinent by the

D 9 6,0 t, arid being alive 10 the 'neceseltr
of having the right man in the right place, as
signed him the place which he to-day fills with
such credit to himself, :Lnd honor to the admin
istration and his government. His devoted
friends objected to his entering upon the dis
charge of the arduous duties of a position which
has turned out to be the most responsible con
nected with the administration and the govern
ment, but scorning the shirking of responsibil
ity, ho without faltering resigned his seat in the
United States Senate, which by the partiality
of the people of his native state, he was occu
pying for a second time, and accepted the new
and higher trust, which his career shows he has
arduously and constantly guarded. He found
his department full of treason, and his army
full of disloyalty, and in the short space of a
few months, he has purified the former, and ex
pelled the traitors from the latter.
It is certain that still higher honors await the
Secretary, and a grateful people both in the
camp and out, will hereafter eagerly watch an
opportunity of showing their appreciation of the
man who knowing dare maintain the RIGHT.
The News is printed in Denver, Colorado ter
ritory, and is apparently a journal of influence
and respectability, if we dare judge by editorial
'ability and deserved patronage.
In the midst of the clamor and resentments
raised by the opposition to the state and na
tional governments, which has been waged for
months by the Breckinridge Democratic element
in this state, at tile head of which the Patriot
and Union stands preeminent, the following
candid confession from the Pittsburg Post is the
more refreshing, because it was -the least ex
pected from that source. Bat, as the develop
ments of the crisis are daily made and daily
exhibit the crimes and mendacity of those both
engaged in and those who sympathise with
treason, the better and more patriotic of the
Democratic press are relinquishing their pre
ferences for their old political allies in the
south, and yielding a fair and manly support
to that cause in which is involved the security
of a country they love, and the stability of laws
in which are reposed their peace and prosperity.
The force of public opinion is working this
change, where the dictates of conscience are too
weak for its accomplishment—And to this force
the traitors and parasites who now use the
columns of the Patriot and Union to damage the
cause of law and order, will some day yield and
repent that they had heretofore so impiously
trifled with its leniency. There is a boundary
to treason, even when it clothes itself with the
prerogatives and liberty of the press—and a
limit to public patience, which those who trifle
with will some day discover as they close their
eyes on a traitor's gibbet. We have no fear
that the right will perish. Its eafranchisements
are as certain as its retributions.
But to the article from the Pittsburg Post,
which we specially commend to our traitor
We are weary of the grumbling of volunteers.
'The catalogue of their woes seems, to be endless.
They complain of the hard bread and fat pork.
They have no hot rolls and omelets for break
fast. The fillet-de-bonef and crequettes are
missing at dinner. There is no lobster salad.—
Spring chickens are invisible. In fact, the lar
der of the camp bears no comparison with that
of the Continental, and every chap who enlists
appears to make up his mind that he ought to
live on the best the land can afford. Then the
clothing is not'fine brdii:deloth. It does not al
ways fit. The stuff does not suit, and every
,man has his separate beau ideal of what sort of
uniform he ought to wear. Complaints of the
officers are endless. Captains who want to rise
are forever discontented with their colonels.—
Ditto lieutenants. Most of the privates are
ambitious, and of course grumblers.
Why is it- that the American volunteer, so
intelligent, enterprising, courageous and valua
ble, should be so perfectly helpless and dis
'contented? It is because the press and the
people both have vitiated the service.--
Defects have been purposely exaggerated
in order to injure the War Department,
the State government, the contractors or
the officers. Each of these in, turn has a
host of rivals or enemies constantly bent
on magnifying all errors. It is a com
mon dedge to make the men discontented
with their commanding officers, in order to
make position for others, and the intrigues to
displace officers have become so general
and dangerous as to call imperatively for some
prompt action of the government. We could
point out glaring cases among the Pennsylva
nia troops where the most disg - racefal acts of
insubordination and treachery have been com
mitted by men who are now seeking to be colo
nels, &c., in order to get rid of their superior
We do not exaggerate when we say that the
whole of the three months volunteers from
Pennsylvania, and many from Massachusetts,
New York and other States, were rendered dis
contented by publications and representations
from parties seeking contracts, or who were pur
posely bent on doing this in order to slander
and break down the Republican administrations
of those States. As for the hunters after con
tracts, we had thought their lies had been pretty
well shown up, but they still keep industrious
ly at their work of misrepresenting the charac
ter of the supplies furnished, and thereuy, of
course, inducing the soldiers to believe they
have been greeting wronged.
WHAT IS TO HE DONS with northern sympa
thisers with treason? You may know them by
the piteous whinnings with which they depre
cate war—by their groanings about "coercion"
and "subjugation," and by their extreme con
cern about Mr. Lincoln's violations of the Con
stitution, in his efforts to preserve it, although
they have nothing to say about Davis' effort to
destroy it altogether. They are all of them
sneaking hypocrites, and the surest way to
judge them is to watch their faces upon the re
ceipt of news. If it is disastrous to the rebels,
their visages at once put on a lengthened, sol
emn look. If the Union army has met with a
disaster—if one of our faithful officers has been
assassinated by a rebel, their eyes brighten at
These men, were they in Maryland or Mis
souri, would smuggle powder and.shot to their
southern brethren—would engage to the extent
of their courage in driving out friends of the
Union and confiscating . their property or des
troying it. But they are where their treason
able sympathies can do no harm and where we
can allow them to remain and enjoy the protec
tion of the Government which they would
gladly see destroyed. All that we would lay
up in store against them is simply a truthful
record of the fact that in the hour of its great
est peril they stood with the enemies of the.
Government and gave their sympathies to the
conspirators. We, would have this known for
at least one generation, and to this end hope
they may be inspired with sufficient co age to

Pennsylvania Mailp telegraph, tUtbittsbay 'Afternoon, august 14, 1861
The following communication states facts and
positions so fairly and so bravely, that we can
not refrain from commending it to those for
whom it was written and those for whom it is
publi•hed. Its truths are glorious and we hope
they may have the effect of warning our trai
tor neighbors from the hellish purpose of seek
ing to manufacture sympathy for rebellion in
the loyal capital of a loyal Commonwealth :
Editor of the Telegraph :
The only rule by which to judge men is to
judge them by their acts. Professions are one
thing ; and if men would judge all men by
their professions, all would be pure and loyal.
But test them by their acts, and you have little

lam led to these reflections from a daily
reading of the Patriot and Union, of this city.
No man who reads it can rid himself of the
conviction,of its treason. It is. a traitorous
sheet, and no where else, but in this tolerant
community, would such an incendiary publica
tion be permitted daily to utter its infamous
A few days ago, in Hartford, Conn., a traitor
paper like the Patriot and Union was gutted out
by a justly indignant community.
Since then in a town in Maine, a similar trai
tor sheet was served in the same way.
How long shall the Patriot and Union here be
permitted to aggress upon the patience and tol-
erance of this community ?
Does the Patriot and Union so soon forget the
warning it received, (so wholesome to its health)
a day or two after the attack on Fort Sumter?
That warning induced it to display the Stars
and Stripes. For a while it became decent;
but like the brute, it is again falling back to ita
"wallowing in the mire."
A UNION MAN:
The following from the Germantown Telegraph,
a neutral journal with a Democrat for proprie
tor, facetiously and truly hits the plaintive
cry of the northern douglifaceri for peace,
compromise, or any adjustment that will save
the Democratic party from ruin, and reinstate
in power the southern traitors now warring
against the government :
We are sorry to say that there is too much
truth in the following paragraph which we copy
from a long and able editorial in The .Press, of
Monday morning :—"A Peace party in the
North is nothing more than the reserve forces
of Mr. Jefferson Davis. Both are animated by
the same purpose. Mr. Davis wishes the North
humiliated ;so does the peace party. Mr. Da
vis wishes the Union dissolved ; so does the
peace party. Mr. Davis wants Northern-bacon
and Northern arms ; the peace party have both
to dispose of at reasonable terms. Mr. Davis
wishes to ruin the administration ; the peace
party is laboring to the same end. The only
difference seems to be thht Davis has armed his
Virginia "peace party," and stationed it at Ma
nassas, under the command of Beauregard and
Johnston, two very distinguished members,
while his "peace party" in the North is com
manded by Breckinridge, Bayard, Vallandig
ham and Wood. The whole six of them are
very faithful officers, and Mr. Davis is as effi
ciently, represented by his Northern servants as
he is by his Southern.
The Ammer or rue MAIMS Ferms.ass, late
American minister at the French Court, in the
city of Washington, has given general satisfac
tion. His guilt is conceded by all who know
the man, and it is well understood that while
the rebel commissioners were in Paris he assist
ed them in the purchase of arms, and facilita
ted their intercourse with the bankers of Paris,
using his official position to accomplish their
purpose. The firmness of the government in
thus arresting Faulkner cannot be too highly
commended. It will teach the rebel chief to
treat our citizens with more considera,tion who
enter their lines on iithaiOni of nierty with
flags of truce in their hands, and it will also af
ford an example to the world, that this govern
ment can disciminate between no station and
treason. All who refuse to lend a willing and
a cheerful obedience to the laws and those em
powered for their administration and enforce
ment, are traitors. On this principle Faulkner
As arrested and is detained.
—ln this connection it may not be but of
place to state that it was to the wife of the
traitor Faulkner Gen. Patterson gave a pass,
which she used in traveling between his camp
and that of her rebel friends. We wonder now
whether the same lady , will be , allowed to visit
her traitor husband hi 'his cell? girauld this'
courtesy be granted? We ask the sympathisers

The despatch contains the same intelligence
as that conveyed by Gen. Fremont, with the
exception that the sum of money brought by
Gen. Siegel from the Springfield Bank is placed
at twenty-five thousand dollars.
The following is a verbatim report of the
special messenger to Gen. Fremont:
Early on Saturday morning Gen. Lyon march
ed out of Springfield and came up with the
enemy at Davis Creek on Green's Prairie, four
miles southeast of Springfield, where they had
taken a strong position.
General Lyon fired the first. gun at twenty
minutes past six o'clock when the battle imme
diately commenced. A severe cannonading
was kept up for two or three hours, when the
