A GALLANT EXPLOIT.
How the Arms were taken from the St.
The Sp.ingfield (III.) Jouinal Lai a Je
tnilcd tlatemcnt of the execution of tho
Qovrrnmtnt order to remore arms from
the arsenal at St. Lon e, by Capt. etokei,
of Chicago, formerly of the United Suu-s
army. Ae a etrateio movfmcnt, the
transaction will compare in importance
with Anderson's transfer of his comniai d
from Moultrie to Sumter, as upon its sue
cossful execution depended the arming of
the whole north-west, there being no oth
er arms in the country available for the
purpose. NoJ one but th e engaged in
the service can fully approlu-nd the diffi
culties attending it. Situated in a city
boiling over with the elements of rt vo'u
lu'ion ; j mlously watched by thousands
of orgtnissd "minuta men" who hud a'l
sworn that the arms should not be remov
ed ; the nnthoritios of tin city covertly
sympathizing with and abetting their foul
schemes : commanded on all si'.les so tlml
tt could not have .resisted an attack fur
five minutes it will readily be seen that
iho H'.tempt lo carry off the nnns whs an
enterprise of no ordinary difficulty and
The Jou mil's statement is as follows:
Capdtin Suikes had beeu teh graphed at
Chicngj by the Governor of Illinois, to
take coaimand of Camp Yates, Whtnhe
arrive I in Spiingfield, the Government
h-id received iufurmation that the arsenal
a in dangfr, and tl at tho arms had bel
ter be reinovud at one They were I hen
hourly expecting tho return of a t-pecial
messenger f.otn Wu-liinton, bringing lite
necessary riqui ttion lor their reti.oval
from the WarDeparlnient. This messen
g r arrived o i Tuesdny morning, by the
Great Western H.rltonl, but the requisi
tion as not received and necess-ary ar
rangements made until after the d- p-trlure
of the train f r S . L mis. An ex ra en
gine with one car attached was immedi
ately procund, and Cup', iu S:okes s'art
ed off at lightning spejd lo overhaul the
regulr passentjer train before it reached
St. Louis. This was done a fow miles
this tiJe of Alton, the train having been
kept there for near two hoars to allow the
sp ci.il lo overtake 'c. Upon tho arrival
of the litter, all tyes were direct d to
wards the car to see who would get oiC,
much speculation h xving arisen am ingst
the p tssengers as to th-i cause of their de
tention. Captain Siokes, however, man
aged lo escape notice, and took hia si a',
am msru iht- o her n tsseiu'ers in the Ir .i i
which proceeded lo S:. Louis.
I'p jn his arrival in the city he wtnt di
rectly to the arsenal, which he found sur
rounded by an im nense crowd, a id g lards
8tationea at every place of entrance, rind
ing it impossible to penetrate through ih .
crowd, and seeing a picket gutrd station
ed at a short dis nnce, he sought the Cap
tain of the gu trd and told him he was the
bearer of dispatches from the S .creiary of
War, and must g?t into the arsenal. A
way was eventually opened, an 1 Captaio
Stokes found himself in the interior of the
Capt.Callend r introduced him to Cnpt.
Lyon, ihe officer in cha'g of the arsenal,
and the three officers held a long council
upon the n inner in which the requisition
should be comp'ied with. It was at once
evident to Captain S okes tin', the arsenal
could not be held again s any serious a
tack, and he was more anxious lo have
the arms removed without delay. The
"minute men" who were petroling (It
streets were constantly on the alert, stop
ping every person whom tiny regarded
with the hast tuspicion.and it any intima
tion of the puipoie to remove the arms
ha I got abroad they would dout!ess have
endeavored to prevent it ; indeed, t ey
had publicly diolared thai they would at
tack and cap' ure the arsenal ou the first
attempt at removing the arms.
We may mention here a circumstance
that will account for the extensive prepa
rations made here for the ti asportation
of iroops on Thursday evening, which did
not take place. 2,000 men had been or
dered to 8t. Louis to assist in the removal
and they were to have left this city ou that
evening, but Capt. Stokes, knowing that
what was to be done must bu accomplish
ed by stratagem, and not by fjree, and
seeing that the prts'-nce of troops from Il
linois would be thy bignal fur an immedi
ate and general attack, sent his private
agent to Alton to countermand the order.
The tto pi accordingly remained where
they were, and the cars did not leave,
greatly to the nurpme of all who had ob
served the preparations made.
The order from the department was
simply for ten thousand mu-kets, say ing
no hing about the cartridges, field pieces
or anything else. The arms were stored
in the tl.ird sto.y of the buildin and a
fa igue party was detailed to lower them
to the first floor, while Oapl. Btokes ma le
arrange mcnts to have ihe steamers in
readiness lo receive them on Thuisdty
night. Two of ihe fastest boats o:i tie
river had b ten chartered by the S ate of
Illinois for the service, and were lying a'
Alton, ia readiness for immediate orders.
These arrangements consumed all
Wednesday, and it was deemed unadvis- ;
to attemp'. the lemoval on that niht
as suspicion bad already been aroused,
anel Csptain Stokes movements closely
watched. By good fortune there happen
ed to be in the arsenal t-ix hundred flint-
lock muskets belonging to the State of
Kentucky sent there for the purpose of
being changed in'o porcussion locks.
inese were boxed up and directed, and
sent to the city in wagons. As Captain
Sokes anticipated ihey were imnediately
seized by minute men, who supposed that
these guns were the sole object of lis en
terprise, and consequently a great part of
their suspicion was diverted from his real
iniirsuay nipni at ju o ciocx, tne line
