M1ovements of Gen. Price.-A, let,
ter from Itolla, dated the 7th inst., to
tihe St. Louis Republican, announces
that a messenger had just arrived rr
from the Federal Col. Carr, who was
sent out on the 4th, on a reconnoiter
ing expedition towards Springfield.
The messenger brought information
that Gen. Price, having been rein
forced by 3000 troops and ten cannon
from Arkansas under Gen. McIntosh,
intended to make another stand at
Gen. Albert Pike, the able and
fatithful Commissioner of Indian Af- .
tfirs and Relations, who lately visit- C

the rough weather at sea. Yesterday

The utmost activity prevails along
our coast, old batteries being strength
eoed and new ones erecting. If the ,
Yankees should succeed in reaching
the Georgia main, they will do it
with ranks foarfully thinned, and find
