Tharaday . Morning, August 15, 1881.
WepAl' h in this afternoon's TILIKMAPH a
full (account 'of the' battle of Davis Creek, in
which, while we lost in numbers, we gained a
partial victory. The death of Gen. Lyon will
fill the country with gloom. He was a gallant
soldier and a loyal American citizen. He was ed
ucated at the 11. S. 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 Brigs',
dig 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, 1837, and graduated in 1841. On
graduating from the military academy he re-
ceived his commission as lieutenant in the army,
and was at once ordered to join the army in
Florida, then operating against the Indians.
After uncomplainingly passing through that
most disagreeable **sign 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 was soon ordered to join the eipedition
against Vera Crus. In the bombardment and
captuie of Vera Cruz, and the severely contested
battle of Contreras, Cherubusco and others which
occurred `between that place and the city of
Mexico, his activity 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
gate, on September 18, 1847, received a wound
from a musket ball. After the conclusion of
peace with litetrico he' was ordered to Jefferson
Barracks; Missouri, preparatory to a contem
plate& march overland to California. By a
change of orders from the War Department his
regiment *qui:dispatched by ship via Cape Horn,
and reached California soon after its acquisition
by thetruited'Statas.
His stay in California was prolonged beyond
that of most of his fellow-officers, and his time
unceasingly eniployf3d - fri operating . among the
enNtetecl I to long and tedious nUtlch7,
es, constant taLrini and frequent skirmishes,
living a large portion of the time in tents, and
subject to the fatigues_ and privations incident
to a campaign that new and hitherto un
known country; so far removed from the com
forts of, civilization. After being relieved from
his long services in California, he was again
stationed on our Western frontier, serving most
of the time in Kansas and Nebraska. During
the troubles in Kansas he threwnp his commis
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
suffer their prejudices to interfere with their
patriotism, in doing justice to a distinguished
American statesman, and a highxdnded 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 hi this nation. His triumphs, his
position, his influence in society and his power
in business, are the monuments of his integrity
and moral, worth, which such men as Messrs.
McDowellUnd Barrett seek in vain to deface ;
and which it is their only distinction that they
can attack with impunity. Theveryinsolence of
their assaults is the evidence of their ingrati
tude, and the illustration of a political career
fitly ending in treason to i country they have
polluted and prostrated with their political her
odes. , ,
The pooil Mountain News thus manfully and
justly alludes to Gen. Cameron. There is a
truth add aplittiliein the compliments of the
News whitihswelrimend to the conscience and
the grailtudaantesurs. Barrett & McDowell.
The article is as :
GINXRAL CAILIMON..-11, is with no ordinary
delight and satisfaction that we have witnessed
the more than flattering endorsement by the
entire press of the country of the report of the
Secretary of War. As a State Taper; it is the
most important now before tini American peo
ple. It'is able, clear and concise. It is like
everything that emanates from the Secretary,
patriotic and practical.
Addeito , General Cameron's great Adminis
trative talent, Is a thorough knowledge of the
wants of, oie people in every department of life
and government.
After shis defeat at Chicago last year, an ef.
fort was made by such an array of friends all
over the Union, as only Secretary Cameron pos
sesses, to induce the President to tender the
Treasury Department to •Gan. Cameron, but
Mr. Lincoln Well knowing the importance of a
correct fdrni*stration, connected with tho War
Departmeniiipid4 being alive .to the necessity
of having the right man in the right place, as
signed him the place which he to day fills with
such credit to himself, and 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 a dministration and the govern
ment, but scorning the shirking of respensibil
, ity, he without faltering resigned his seat in the
United States Senate, which by the partiality
of the people of his net vestate,-Lhe 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 tumors await the
Secretary, and a grateful people both in the
camp and out, will hereafter eagerly watch an
opportunity of showing thair appreciation of the
UM who knowing dare n gie emir.
The News is printed in Denver, Colorado ter
ritory, and is apparently a journal of influence
and respectability, if we dare judge by editorhil
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 Breckimidge Demodrafic elente.nt
in this state, at the head of whichlthe Patriot
and Union stands preeminent, the following
candid confession .from the Pittsburg POst is =the
more refreshing, because it was the least ex
pected AOm that /pllrCeif . pat, es the develop
ments of the crisis- am 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 MOO support
to that cause in which is 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
oolumns of the .Parfet and Union to damage the
cause of had and order; will some day yield and
repent that they had heretofore so impiously
trifled with its leniency. Theie 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 disuover as they close their
eyes on a traitor's gibbet. We have no fear
that the right will perish. Its enfnmehisements
are as certain as its retributions.
But to the article from the Pittsburg Post,
which we specially commend to our traitor

The despatch contains the same intelligence
as' that conveyed by Gen. Fremont, with 'the'
bYception 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
messenger to Gen. Fremont:
' Early on Saturday morning Gen. Lyon march
ectont of Springfield and came .up with - the
erlainy at Davis Creek on Green's Prairie, four
Mlles southeast of Springfield, where they-had
hatter a strong position.
General Lyon fired the first gun at twenty
miniates pest lei o'clock when the battle imme
diately commenced. A. severe' cannonading
*air kept up tor two or three hours, when.
lire of Totten's artillery proving severe , fier the
enemy. They gradually MI back•towarda-their
eribbnoment on Wilson's creek.
Lion's cavalry on the left flank, and Siegle's
artillery on the right, then began ,a terrific aa.
rardti, and spread slaughter and dismay in the
ranks of the rebels, pursuing them to the camp.
• 'lie shell from Totten's artillery , set fire to
their tents and baggage wagons, which.wereell
• Alouisiana and a Missiterippi Regiment seem
ed to suffer most and were almost midi:Mated:
`tome time in the afternoon, while Gen. Lyon
**leading his column, his horse was ehotfroni
Miter him. He immediately mounted another;
&eras he turned round to'his men, waving his
hie:and cheering them on to victory, he was
itrach in the small of his back and fell.deadon
Are kround.
,The command then devolvedon Gen. Seigel,
'and gle pursuit was continued until , nightfall
when:our little army rested for the night in tiw
Meniys encampment
•On Sunday morning Gm. Seigel fearing the
enemy might:recover and attempt to cut hie
command from Springfield, fell back on that
eity'velere the home guards were stationed.--4
Theitearing that the great numb era of the ana
-Imy ght induce them to get between hint:end
t 44, Gen. Seigel concluded to fall back:On
Roils with hit prisoners and baggage trains and
need reinforcements.
At the time of the departure of the nuesaiger
the 'enemy had not-been men, awl•it is probable
that General Siegel had not been disturbed on
lira march. Ninety rebels were alptured,-„lo

horse of General McCullough were among the
trophies of the field of battle.
