A telegram received yesterday by a promi

apolis, says : Governor Morton and Col. Wood
left for Louisville on the 19th inst. on a special
train with guns and ammunition.
The Governor has ordered the home guards
and the regiments on the border to hold them
selves in readiness. It is further added that
ten thousand additional troops could leave that
State in twenty-four hours.
General Reynolds, who was at the Cheat
Mountain has, a telegram states, driven the
rebels from their positions, killing nearly a
hundred of them. Colonel Kidwell, of the
Fourteenth Indiana regiment, was surrounded
twice, but repulsed the rebels with great gal

action is not mentioned.

There is as yet no definite action in regard to
Major-general Fremont's administration of af

of a delicate and complicated character.
The indications are, however, that if he shall
not be superseded in his command, which now
seems probable, other arrangements of an im

the public welfare. Nothing beyond what is
here stated can be reliably ascertained for the
reason already mentioned.

So far as can be learned to-night nothing has

indicating any movement of the enemy.
A gentleman from Barnesville reports the ar
rest and search for arms of Capt. William Sell -
man, Lloyd Jonat, Charles Orme and Richard
Hays, all of a late infantry company known to
be generally unfriendly to the Union. No arms
were found, and the prisoners were released on
the spot. One uniform belonging to Mr. Hays
was retained as contraband of war.

Yesterday several shells were thrown over
the river at Edward's Ferry, and a body of
secessionists there were dispersed.
Several slaves belonging to a wealthy farmer
in this vicinity recently disappeared, and it is
reported that on application Gen. Banks gave
the owner permission to institute a search among
the camps for them.
An order has been issued to reduce personal
baggage to the lowest possible standard.
Daasorrowx,lSept. 20.—0 n Sunday last three
soldiers, belonging respectively to the Sixteenth
Indiana, Nineteenth New York, and the Second
Pennsylvania, made an assault on a farmer at
his residence, a few miles from here, and beat
him severely. His son shot the Indiana soldier
through the body. He is still alive, but lies in
a critical condition. The others are in charge
of the Provost Marshal. It appears that the
soldiers were intoxicated, and commenced the
affray by attempting to tear down the American
flag on the farmer's premises, taking it for a

PROSPECT OF GEN. PRICE
JEFFERSON CITY, Sept. 20.
A special dispatch to the St. Louis Democrat
"Jeff. C. Davis, commanding here, received
his appointment as Brigadier General to day.
General Lane is reported to have formed a junc
tion with the forces at Lexington with 4,000
men. Reinforcements from St. Joseph are also
reported to have reached that place, and Lex
ington is now considered safe.
" General Price will undoubtedly be sur
rounded and cut off. It is feared that the re
infyrcements sent from here have not yetreach
ed Lexington. Heavy batteries are planted at
Glasgow by the rebels, and our troops will have
to disembark below the town and attack them
in the rear."
Sr. Lours, September 21.—1 n order to cor
rect confusion and many contradictory state
ments relative to the position of Lexington and
the opposing forces of Colonel Mulligan and
General Price, it deemed necessary to make the
following explanation :
The general direction of the Missouri river at
Lexington is from west to east of the city, lying
on the south hank. The early settlement—
now called "Old Town"—is situated back, on a
hill, and has been superseded by New Lexing
ton, further up the river, where the steamboat
landing is, and which is the main city. Col.
Mulligan's fortifications are in a ridge running
at right angles between the two towns. They
surround the Masonic College building, stand
ing about a quarter of a mile from the river,
which has been used as quarters for the ttoops
and strengthened to resist an artillery attack.
The line of fortifications run down to the
river bluff, between which and the water's edge
is a wide shelving beach. This is the point
where the conflict took place on Tuesday for
the possession of the ferry boats. The main
body of General Price's army are situated at
Old Town, but the fortifications have been as
sailed from all sides except the river.
On Thursday of last week an atbm.k was made
from the Old Town by a strong party of roving
rebels, who were repulsed with considerable
loss, and the Old Town shelled and burnt to pre
vent its being used as a place of shelter.
Lexington proper is in possession of General
Price, but it is not the theatre of the conflict.
The reinforcements which left Jefferson City
on Wednesday, if they were not assailed by tbe
rebel batteries along the shore, must have
reached the neighborhood of Lexington yester
day. These troops could doubtless have been
landed near the south side of the river, where
the steamers could cross to ferry General Stur
ges' command over, and the combined forces,
numbering about twelve thousand men would
march on Lexington, and with the assistance of
Mulligan's heroes and General Lane's command,
attack and completely rout General Price's
