Hotly Pursuing.
Capture of Four Rebel Field Officers
and Thirteen Privates.
Special to the St. Louis Democrat.]
According to latest advices the federal army
was in hot pursuit of the rebels. Price's army
was on Crane creek, twenty-nine miles from
here, on Friday evening, and our forces five
wiles in the rear preparing to make an early
start in pursuit next morning.
Gen. Price had placed his train in the ad
vance. About one hundred wagons, contain
ing supplies fur him, brought into this place
from Forsyth a few hours before his retreat.
Rebel sympathizers here claim that Price will
be reinforced by twelve or fifteen regiments from
Bentonville, Arkansas, under General Van
Dorn ; Lut General Sigel, who is advancing on
the rob 1 column in a different route than that
pursued by General Curtis, may strike a blow
on their flank and upset Price's calculations.
Four rebel officers and thirteen privates fell
into our hands on Friday, and are now here.
The officers are the notorious Col. Freemen,
Major Berry, aid de camp to Gen. Mcßride,
Capt. Dickinson, chief engineer and Capt. Dow
nail, quarter master.
A puney express with relay posts has been
established by tApt Baldwin between Rolla and

the possessions ot tue rebels, will only be a
question of time, as they will be compelled to
nurreuder when their present supply or provi
sions and water rune out. Fort Jackson and
a few small sand batteries are the only °beta
cies to prevent our gunboats trim getting
within range of the city of Savannah. the
troops wpm accompanied the txpeditiou have
lauded, but the exact distance they are from
Ba.annah I am unable to state. They have
aireedy thrown up inttenchmente and mounted
guns to defend their position in case of an
attack from a superior force. Fort Jackson,
which will probably receive the attention of
our gunboat fleet in a few days, is a sand tort
mounting about seventeen guns of good range
mid heavy calibre. It will doubtless take
some he'd ff 6 hting before the rebels will desert
it as it is the key to Savauuah, new that Fort
Pulaski is rendered harmless; but our jolly
jack tars are the boa lust know how to tatnote
cue guns, and when everything is in readiness
they will make such a dash as the rebels will
be unable to withstand.
Much complaint is made in the papers 01
the north of the tardiness in making an ad
vance ot this division ot the army. No idea ut
the difficulties to be surmounted can be bad
except by persoi , al observation. Preparations
tor an advance here cannot he made in a day,
and if tuey could, the number ut troops to the
division are as yet insufficient. T..e plans of
operation have been arranged long ago, and
.ecunnoisances made to obtain the topography
of the country, but the main sinews have nut
been sent forward—more men are yet ranted ;
—when they arrive and no forward movement
is then made the grumblers at home who sic iu
easy chairs,.can make their complaints with
some show of justice.
Hilton Head has been thoroughly fortified
since its occupation by our tortes. Intrench
tneuts have been thrown up from the beach on
the sea-side to the Broad river side,aud a number
of heavy guns =mated upon them. Ride pits
have been constructed, and with a single regi
went this place could now be held against any
force the rebels could bring. Storehouses say
eral hundred feet in length have been erected
for the accommodation of government stores,
and a hospital building capable of accommo
dating comfortably three hundred persons is
nearly completed. A wharf extending into the
bay at least an eighth of a mile will be com
pleted in a few days, which ill enable the
largest ships to coma up and unload. Since the
expedition landed here everything bee been
orought ashore in lighters. The completion of
the wharf will obviate this and greatly facili
tate the large government business done at this
point. At and near Fort Welles, (formerly
Fort Walker,) which is Hilton Head proper, the
busiest appearance is presented. Hundreds of
carpenters are at work erecting frame build
tugs.. The uld buildings used by the rebels,
prior to their sudden departure, are now in the
wands of the painter, and in the course of a few
days they will present an entirely different ap-
Ipearance. Tne furl has been thoroughly re
pawed of the injuries it received during the
bombardment, and a number of new guns have
been mounted upon it. Altogether Hilton
Head presents the appearance of a young city,
and all that is required to make it a city in re
ality is for the government to allow "the ever
lasting Yankee" to come down here and settle.
A few days ago I paid a - visit to the upper
end of this Island to see some Pennsylvania
triende in the Forty-tifth regiment, which
since the departure of Cot. Welau for house is
under the cummaud of Lieut. Colonel Beaver,
of Bedefonte. The regiment is unattached to
any brigade, and is doing picket duty on the
different Islands he'd by us. While at the
outer picket station I witnessed the arrival of
two contrabands, who bad that morning bid
farewell to their masters and sought protection
trom their Uncle Sam. They had eluded the
vigilance of the rebel pickets, and with a dug
out canoe had reached " the happy laud of
Canaan." They were immediately .alien to the
guard quarters, where I had a couversetion with
them. One of them was an old man with care
worn countenance, and clad with clotbes whose
patches were so numerous as to matte it im
possible to diatinguisu the urighod piece
of which his garments vitt re made. He said
he came from back of Blufitun, "wear dsr
war heaps ob rebels." In answer to an inquiry
whether he wee married and had a family,
great big tears came into toe old man'. eyes
and ran down his cheeks like rain, " Yes,
ream, I hob a wife ant children ; but dey's
ober yonder." He nearly choked when he
spoke of his wife and children, but brightened
up when he mentioned that he was tree now,
and could probably earn money enough to buy
his old wire. His children he thought could
yet escape, bat "de ole woman" trounced him.
The conti aband accompahying the old man was
a stout, healthy-looking boy, apparently about
twenty years of age. He was all smiles and
grins. When he was told that he could obtain
work here, and get paid for it int gold, his eyes
fairly glistened with delight. lu answer to a
question of bow much he was worth, he said
about a year ago his master pail one thousand
dollars for him, bat he thought he could'ut be
sold now for four bite. They were both sant
to head-quarters.
By the next steamer a number of priso•.era
of war will be convoyed north for sate keeping.
They belong to the "mud-sill" portion of the
South, but are ardent in their support of ,he
rebel cause. Some of them are strongly sus
pected of being spies, but, as there is no proof
of that fact, they are merely held ae prisoners
of war. One of the party was a soldier in
Fort Walker, and had an arm blown off white
practicing at the guns. While being conveyed
to the steamer this afternoon, he expressed the
determination that, if it was necessary, he
would lose his other arm in the defence of
Southern rights.

The weather for the past few days has been
rainy and disagreeable. Fresh shad have made
their appearance, but sell exorbitantly high,
owing to the limited facilities for catching
them. New peas are occasionally seen, but
foraging parties have played havoc with them.
