THE SPRDfQFIELD 1ATTLB.
Gallant jCoofltict af Xanaap Voluateers.
We find. in the Daily Tmea of Aug
ust 22d. a letter containing a most
graphio description of the bard-fought
battle near Springfield, Mo., from which
we -aake the following extracts, which
will be read with intense interest by
the people of Jeffersoa County .t Eds.
"In the meantime the
Kansas 1st had been called out. fought
nobly ana reurea win. creuu, iuug
position near tolten's Battery
"At last the order came for the Kan
sas 2d to move to the front. In an in
stant every man was on his feet, ready
to march. The spell wasbroken.and all
that was' thought of, was the work before
them. Col. Mitchell took his position
at' the bead of our little band only
about four Jiuadred and up the hill
ire moved, passing the Kansas 1st, and
several" othar regiments who had fallen
back to rest. As we filed up the 'steep
ascent, we passed numbers of met who
had '"fought their last battle' and
were sleeping their. last sleep; and near
iho, battery. I saw large pools of blood.
St'iil the column moved on firmly, until
the summit of the litll was reached.
Company-B. Ciptain McClure was

.fckirajujhers, under command of -Jtajorl

our ranks, like hail. Captain ThoTeh's
company delivered their fire, 'and broke
into confusion, falling back .upon .Capt.
Russell's comoanv. Of course our
ranks were somewhat broken, 'bat 'the
"Union Guards,' true to "the pledge
uiauc-meir ineoas, stooa meir-grounu,
discharging their pieces, right.inia the,
faces of the; enemy, and only fell, luck
into line when ordered bv their Caotaiu:
The whole regiment whs formed,' into'
line of battle, about twenty yards, back
of where company K received the Urst
are aoii-jn amomeat.ortwo'wit' were
pouring back into the ranks of the.en
emy, who still remained under cover,
a most destructive fire of musketry.
Alter out Jine had been formed, we
stood to our places, aa firm as rocks,
every, man feeling it his duty to load
and fire as fast as ho could. For about
twenty minutes an incessant fire was
kept up on both sides, then at last the
enemy broke, and the field was left 10
us, with tho exception of an occasion
al straggler, who, more bold than, the
rest, had remained to give lis a parting
salute; but as soon as their heads pop-,
pod, above the brush,- a well directed
ball from some of the boys, would set
tle them forever. Soon as the fire had
ceased, two men came riding up to our
reer. One inquired of Capt. Russell
if he could pass down our rear. - The
Captain suspecting bimio be a Seces
sionist, ordered him to halt, but instead
of halting he put spurs to his horse
and tried to escape. The Captain im
mediately drew his revolver and fired,
the shot taking effect bufnot fatally.
He immediately fired, again, together
with three others with muskets, when
both horse and rider fell mortally woun
ded. Lieut. R. Newell went up to him,
found him nearly dead, and removed
from his person a fine revolver and sa
bre.. He stated that he was an officer
in the secession army.
"In this charge we met, with our
heaviest loss, and here it was, immedi
ately, in the rear of Company G, that
Gen. Lyon fell dead, .the ball entering
near his heart. A moment before h?
fell I was by the side of his horse, then
falling into line I heard him cheer the
boys on in his own clear, calm voice.
The next moment I heard that he
was killed. His body was carried from
the field to the ambulance by Liout.
Shryer of Co. K., A. Kepler and Ed.
Spnrlock, of Co. G, Kana 2d, anJ
not by his Aids, as slated by a corres
pondent of the Missouri Democrat.
At the time he fell none of his Aids
were near him; and as the Iowa 1st
was some distance down the hill at the
time, it is not possible that, he could
have been lending thtm on lo a charge,
as staled iu the Democrat.,
Oa the death of General Lyon, the
command of onr forces fell upon Major
Sturgis, who soon after ordered a re
treat. The Kansas 2d was the last reg
iment to leave the field, and the only
regiment that left with all the compa
nies .present.' and in perfect order. We
left slowly followed by Uie ortillery,
and soon were off the field. As we
were leaving, a shell thrown by the
enemy fell and bunt near us, killing
our Third Lieutenant, Robert Newell;
from Oskalooa. He was struck on Iho
bank of the bead, and killed instantly.
He was a young man of sterling
worth, and as (rue a heart as fought on
the field. During the whole time he
.was at his post, ccol and. firm. His
loss is keenly felt by us all. t
"I cannot call this a defeat. .Long
before our tegiment loft the field, the
enemy had commenced retreating and
burning their trains. This 1 saw with
my own eyes. Had Gen. Lyon lived.
I think we would have held the field.
That, they did not follow us,' looks as
though they had been handled rather
roughly, and were willing to quit.
"I do not wish to rob nny regiment
or company of their hard earned hon
ors, but it is conceded by all hands that
the Kansas 2nd, made the bravest.stnnd
and best fight of sny of the troops on
the field. Ceitain it is that we were
ordered, to the most dangerous position,
and held it for over two hours against
fearful odds. They have a proud rep
utation among all the officers, Regulars
and Volunteers, and they deserve il.
"I would like to speak'of' the" Kan
sas 1st ib detail, but have not the' time.
AH honor is due them for their noble
and gallant bearing."
Advanture of a, Spy.
I have lately returned from the South,
but my exact whereabouts in that re
gion, for obvious reasons, it would not
be polite to state. Suspecled of 'beiag

spy, a "short shrift" and ready rope
would have prevented the blotting of
this paper. Hanging, disguised , on the

their leaders, listening to- this party and

"that benefits- by thelnyewiga'tioBf'ind j
warnings of the spy Wjiidgd;1 and' the 1
danger; often' incurred, is more- serious
arid personal than' that of. the battle'
field? which may, perhaps, detract from
its desirability. '
It was a dark night. Not a' star' on
the glimmer. " I had collected ray quo
tum of intelligence and was' on the'
move for the Northern lino. I was ap
proaching the bank of a stream whose
water I bad to cross.and had then-some
miles to traverse before I could reaclr
the pickets of our gallant troops. A
feeling of uneasiness began to creep
over me; I was on the outskirt of a wood
fringing the dark waters at my feet,
whose presence-could scarcely be de
tected ibut for their sullen, murmurs as
they rushed through; the gloom. The
wind sighed in gentle accordance. I
walked forty or fifty yards along the
bank . I then crept on all fours along the
ground and groped with my bands '
I paused I groped, again ray .breath
thickened, perspiration, oozed from, me
at every pore, and I was prostrated. with
horror ! I had -missed my landmark
and knew not where I was. Below or
above, beneath, tho shelter of the bank
lay the skiff I had hidden, ten 'days' be
fore, when I commenced operations
among the followers of Jeff- Davis.
As I stood-gasping for breath with
all the ut.mistakAblo proofs of my call
ing about me, the sudden cry of a bird
or plunging' of a fish would act like
magnetism on my frame, not wont to
shudder at a shadow. No matter how
pressing the danger may be, if a man
sees an opening for escape he 'breathes
with freedom. But let him be sur
rounded by darkness, impenetrable at
two yards distance, within rifle's length
of concealed foes, for what knowledge
he has to the contrary ; knowing, too.
with painful accuracy, the detection of
his presence would reward him'witb a
sudden and violent death, and if he.
breathes no faster and feels lits limbs
as 'free and his spirit as light Ss when
inking a favorite promenade.he is more
fitted for a hero than I am.
In the agony of tliat.momeritT-in the
sudden nnd utter helplessness 1 felt to
discover my true bearings I was' about
(b let myself gently into' the streaih and
breast its current, for life and death.
There was no alternative. The North
ern pickets must be reached in safety
before the morning brokc.or I' should
soon swing between heaven 'and earth
from .ome limb of the black forest in
which r stood.
At that moment the low,' sullen bay
of a blood hound struck my ear. ' The
sound was revivng, the fearful stillness
broken. The uncertain dred fled be
fore the certain danger. I was stand
ing to; my .middle in the sliallow bed of
of the river, just beneath the jutting
banks. After the pause of a few sec
onds I began to creep, mechanically
and stealthily, down the stream.follow
ed, as I knew from the rustling of the
grass and frequent breaking of twigs,
by the insatiable brute jallhough, by
certain uneasy growls, I felt assuredihe
was at fault. Something struck agaiqsL
my breast, icouia not prevent a.siigiu
cry from escaping me.as stretching out
my hands I grasped the .gunwale of. a
boat moored1 beneath' the bank. Be
tween surprise and joy I felt half chek;
