but on a.iriving there iltey found the troops
t mbarkf d on a Texas steamer. On the
1 3ih i hey went to Indianola, where they
i.iiRoined themsflves as siife as though ly
ing in New York harbor.
On the I7.h they were visited by the
pilot, who desired them to be ready to
receive troops at any hour, d ly ot night.
He said they were to finive in the stenm
er Fashion, and were then thirty miles
distant. About five o'clock in the morn
ing tbey received n wspapers from a Gal
veston steamer, in whi'.h were r p rted
the fitll of Fort Sumter, and the procla

At five minutes after twelve, midnight,
of the I7th, a fteamer hailed the watch
on deck, nnd said they had three hund
red and odd troops lor hem, and theii
haggpge would come by another steamer.
All hands assisted to get the troops on
board. They gave the troops all manner
of assistance to get on board, nnd when
they were nearly all aboard they found
that th -y were Tex-ts rebels instead ol U
S. troops. Capt. Howes cried, "My Go J I
I have lost my ship l" A person step
ped up te him and said, " I am Op'ain
Van Dorn. I command here. This ship
is priz f to the Confederate States." It
seems that Van Dorn was sent from Mont
gomery to Galveston on the I2ih of April
to inise troops to capturo the vessel.
Mr. McGiath says that two colored
men who were servant or assistant stew
ards in the ship, were captured with the
vessel. Their names are Levi Man, aged
about fif.y years, who has a wif and
fami;y in Nev York, and Walter Good
year, aged hbout 30, who has a wife and
family in New York. These two colored

A Good Suggestion.
The announcement reached us the oth
er d iy tint the Legislature of Missouri
had appropriated one million of dollars
fo.- the defense of the S ate. This Slate
never had a million of dollars in its treas
ury, and it has p ltd the interest on its
debt for several years pat by selling new
bonds, thin getting deeper into debt. It
lias only saved itself from protest in New
York on the 1st of July coming by a forc
ed loan fr.tu banks, ex o ted tinder fear
of losing their cl arters, and now it appro
pria es a million of dollars "for the de
fence of the S ae !'' Defence against
what ? The Governor sent an insolent
restonse to the President's call for vol
unteers to defend the Government, and
hese-ks to p'uoge Missouri into the vor
lex of secession. The New York Times
wisely suggests th it if she wo.thl be hon
est, let her send the "million of dollars"
approuria'ed by her 1 g't;U'ure for trea
s nabie purposes, to New York, and in
vest it in her own discredited bonds a' 40
cents on Ihe dollar, thus reducing her in
debtedness two and a half milliutis nf dol
lars. Her "defence" will be cared for. as
of old, by the Federal Goverrment, with
out its costing her people it cent.
Good for Tennessee.
Advices from Nashville state that on
Tuesday of lust week the Union State
Convention in session there, (Hon, Win
II. Polk, presiding) unanimously nomi
nated ex Govert or WiPivn B. Campbell
for Governor, on an unconditional Union
platform. He commanded the T- unessee
troops in the battle of Monterey, wi h
great distinction. The convention is san
guine of his election in August mx by
an overwhelming majority. The position
ou which he was nominated is, that the
act of si cession lecently adapted by the
Tennessee Legislature was one of pos.tive
and undeniable usuip ition and treachery
to the State, as well as to the General
Government : and that the principal men
concerned in its adoption, including Gov
ernoi L-ham G Harris, deserve and shall
hang at the end of a rope. Gov. Camp
bell, Senator Johnson, and other able
fpehkers intend to make an active can
vass, and we trust they will bo success
ful. If tntrgy, ho ivity and intrepidity
can secure success, their triumph is sure.
The St. Louis Affair.
The stories concerning the sad occur

persons were killed. It is equally cer
tain that many of Ihe mob were armed
with pistols, and came out to fight the
troops. They nmused themselves for a
while by thiowing dirt and sand into the
faces of the soldiers, afterwards saluted
them with brickbats, and finally fired pis
tols into the ranks. The troops then re

In conclusion, he says, Disclaiming

regard it my plin path of du'y lo express
to the people in rei-p c'ful but decided
langu ge that within the field or scope of

The first rifle in vogu in France was
the so called pillar r'fle of thouvenin, but
the invention of Mr. Minie is one which
has practically revolutioniz-d the fire
arms of the present day. Ihe improve
ments made by Mr. Minie are coi, fined
almost wholly to the form of the project
ile, and have very little reference to that
of the gun out of which H is fired. The
ball is of an oblong conic il foim, some
thing like an acorn withcut its tups ; but
instead of beir.g t-olid, this cone is hol
lowed on, at the bise into n tup-like
form. The advantages of this form of
projectile are that it ofltrsless le I tance
to the n:r than a round ball wou'd, nnd
i hat having its ctn'tr of gravi y in its
foremost pin t, it h is no tendency to turn
over in iis rl ght ; but iti chief merit, in a
n i!i:ary point of iew, is ih.it wi.h it the
rilh: can be loaded as easily ai the ordi
nary smooth-bored gun, the forcing of ihe
ball into ihe gtotve.s of tha bin el boing
effected by lite g inpoivder and ml by the
ramrod. The I, i m of the rifle proper to
these conical missiles differs very li. t' e
from tho'e ucd with those used with the
old fpherical bullet, except that a three

question whether four grooves would not

Undtr the last Administration, as will

We are ph a ed to see thi t this char 'e of
disaffection is contradicted, and that his
removal was effected by the then Secre

Fellow Citizens in the Free States :
Placed on an alvanced post of liberty
in the present s'ruggle for the mainten
ence of our government, we have, in obe
dience to Ihe call of our President, or
ganizd the four regiments of volunteers
from Missouri. As citizens of a State
whocs first ex cu ire is, as you well know,
opposed to the Government of the United
S a'es, we, as a ma ter of course, canmt
exprct support from him or the State gov
ernment for furthering the purposes of
our Federal Government. We are, there
fore, comp lied to anDnal to the sympa
thies of our fell .w-citiz-ns in the free
S'ates, who have, with unprecedented un
animity, come to the support of our Gov
ernment, for the necessary means of pro
viding our first equipment. Many of our
men are desiitude of the means to pur
chase the necessary uniform?,blankets,(feo.
Having no claim on our Oeneral Govern
ment uniill nfier three months service, we
appeal to the sympa by of tur Union
loving fellow-citizens in the free States for
the neccstary assistance andsupport.fully
s Uisfied that a p trt of that patriotic liber
ality so freely shown lo their own volun
teers, will not be withheld from xts. An
ticipating such sympathy of our Federal
Government in this remote and important
post of the great West, against treason
and rebellion, in order that the wishes of
the patr'o's and Union-loving men of this
country may soon be fulfilled, and that re
bellion be forever crushed, and the caus
of .-ightand justice be triumphant over
treason and secession.
Gov. Gustavus Koerner, of Belleville,

The Position of Cairo.
A writer in the Blade says Cairo is
built upen a very narrow neck of land
lying betwe n the Ohio and Mississippi
rivt rs at their junction. Tha lard on
which the city i built, is very low, belng
only six fee t above low water mark. It
is entirely surrounded by a levee or em
bankment of earth from fifteen to forty
feet high. This emb inkment is. six and
a half uiiles long, having three miles on
each river and one half mile across, and
paved with stones all around on the out
rdde from lop toloMom, to prevent wash
ing awy. Although this embankment
is forty feet hijjh, the water rose within
fix inches of the top in the Spring of 10
68. In times of high wa'er Cairo is sur
rounds d by water from fifteen to forty
feet above its streets, the water running
across the upp r end from the Ohio into
the Mississippi. The Kentucky is still
lower, being em'y four feet above )ow
w iter with a dense forest and very swam
py for four or five miles back, apd could
not be occupied ly troops at any time.
The only f oint from which the city of
Cairo can be seen i Bird Point, on the
Mistouri hide, about one and a half miles
Suu.li-west of Caiio and directly in front
of ihe mouth of the Ohio river It Is the
terminus of the Cairo St Fulton railroad,
and is the only biga poi t o! land on hat
side of the river for many miles, and ii
snrroiinded by a Swamp also. The tel
egraph announces that that point is to be
occupied by Federal troops, which will
give them three Batteries commanding
each river one at Mound City, three
miles above Cairo on the Ohio, one oa
each rivet at ihe North end of tho city,
and one al the South end, and one oa

boats to pass, ard the eity cannot be tak
