A pressure of telegraphic news in this
issue, from numerous points, engrosses
both the space and time usually claimed
for comments., IVc invite our readers to
•compare the Tuns use of this morning
with the issues ol less thnu three years
ago, when half a column of telegraphic
news was unusual, and a column a
From Hosecrans’ army the word is
passed “all’s well,” and Roscy evidently
tnows “ what’s o’clock, 7 ’ though he does
not tell, for fear the enemy may steal time,
meanwhile what little wc do receive, is
encouraging. The rebel Wheeler got a
severe set buck day before yesterday from
Gen. Crook, with a bur prospect of finding
the affair final.
Gen. Blunt escaped Quantrell, hut sev
enty-eight of his bodyguard were butch
ered in cold blood. The poor fellows did
not display any great pluck, and it cost
them their fives. Blunt is safe. The
rebels in force threaten Fort Scott,
The news from the South via Memphis
3s full of interest. The Confederacy is
troubled by intestine commotions that
will cause the arch conspirators pale
chocks and foreboding. Only by the direst
tyranny can they cany on the war, and
the remedy itself has bred a restiveness
that threatens to ruin all.
We have cheerful news from Ohio and
Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and lowa, and
our correspondents are so located that thedr
dispatches deserve veiy great weight We
give the States in the order of the interest
that attaches to them. Inall of them there
are badly scared snakes just now, with a
prospect that on Tuesday next there will
*be dead snakes in plenty.
The Conference of the Methodist Epis
copal Church for this State, comprising
that portion ot the State reaching from
Bloomington to CarlinvlUe, north and
.south, and from tiie Wabash to the Mis
sissippi River, east and west, is in session
at Springfield. About 170 members, 80
visitors, and 16 local preachers were in
attendance, of whom a lull list we present
elsewhere. The report of their proceed
ings yesterday, in our Springfield dispatch,
.includes an abstract of the rousing patri
otic resolutions the body stand ready
to adopt nearly unanimously. These
clergymen may serve as a model
The same body is engaged in trying Rev.

These brethren dont say
that a Copperhead cannot enter the King
dom of Heaven, (though the old original
Copperhead made desperate attempts to
get in—and failed,) but they do say he may

militant, and ought not to be set to watch
the flock, lest peradventure men be led
astray in an hour when their country
needs them. Let Mr. Blundell be careful
ly put through his paces, and if he stum
ble in loyalty, drop him.
An immense outrage was perpetrated
yesterday. The myrmidons of the brutal
despot and hyena at Washington invaded
the cars at Richmond, Indiana, yesterday
(they will find some of the same kind of
vermin at the other Richmond), and
dragged from under the palladium of our
liberties and the American flag, nineteen
harmless Hlinoians, and arrested them on
-the spot. This interference with the rights
of the people is defended on the paltry
plea that these martyrs were going to Bay
ton, Ohio, to vote for Vallandigham. They
had revolvers, and smelt of bad whisky.
They confessed their intention to vote in
Ohio. Can our readers peruse this para
.-graph without measureless indignation?
We rather think not. Where sleeps the
e word ? Where is Dick Merrick ? Whose
■blood does he snuff now?
The news from Washington states that
the President has completed his answer to
the Missouri delegation, and that it will be
promulgated to-morrow. Nothing is defi

Three more of the wretched blacks, the
Beer-ham murderers, expiated their crime

Kentucky Penitentiary.
A few weeks once, immediately follow
ing the Lawrence massacre, a meeting
was called at Bryan Hall, to take action
lor the relief of the sufferers,by rebel vio
lence. How our citizens responded to the
appeal, both in amount and mode of dis
bursement, is shown elsewhere in the re.
port of Rev. Robert Collyer.

New Orleans, Sept. 30.—The headquarters
of the 19th army corps, under Gen. Franklin,
and part of th 13th army corps, under Gen.
C. C. Waahbume, are at Camp Bisland, fifty
miles from Brashear City. They have met no
enemy as yet.
Foraging parties have gathered up large
quantities of mules, horses, and cattle, bat
the plantations are generally deserted. The
advance ot the army was delayed on account
~ ot obstructions in Bayou Teche. These ob
structions were blown np, and the bayou is
now open for steamers to Kew Iberia.
On the 23d, a raid was mad e on the telegraph
office situated opposite DonaldsonvlUe, by a
baud of guerillas.
Fourteen men of the New York 14th cav
alry and the telegraph operator, Mr. Allen, of
Illinois,' were captured. In consequence of
this raid an expedition was set in motion to
clear the conntzy in that neighborhood. This
expedition left Carrolton on the night of the
20th by steamboat, about 1,000 men strong,
under Brig. Gen. Burbridge. He reconnoi
tred the whole countiy to the Amite River,
without meeting the enemy, and retumed to
Carrolton on the 28th, without casualty.
Lieut. Earl of the 4th Wisconsin, in com
mand of forty cavalry, marched from Baton
Rouge on the 2Sth nlu, as far as the Comite
River. He captured fourteen prisoners;
' among them were the notorious CoL Hunter
and Cant, perry, guerilla chiefs.
It is known that Gen. Logan (rebel) is on
the cast side of the Mississippi river, seven or
eight miles below Moigausleßend, with 3,500

7a tie lUint ia Methodist Conference to day
tho case of Kev. W. Blundell, charged with
being a Copperhead and opposed to the
country, was taken op, and a committee ap.
pointed to prefer charges against him.
Assistant Mifi&icnvy of Ohio, Bar. Hr.
Harris, Secretary of the M. £ Church, ad*
di cased the Convection on the subject oi
missions. He gave a very flattering account
of the progress of missions, and of the finan
cial prospects of the Society. In ISGO the So
ciety was forty thousand dollars in debt. In
16C3 there wss a surplus of $30,000. tm«
year the increase in receipts over lost is one
hundred and twenty one thousand dollars.
2. The great question before the Conference
to-day was the state cf the country.
A series of highly patriotic resolutions
were presented by the majority of the Com
mittee. They declared,
■ Seedlud, That the Conference recognizes the
band of Codin the present war.
8. That a correct understanding of Its cause is
necessary to its suppression.
8. That we believe slavery Is the primary cause
of the rebellion, and that there can be no security
for the Union and peace for the States as lons as it
is tolerated.
4. Endorses the Emancipation Proclamation, as
not only Justified by mllita-y necessity, but by the
moral sense of tho civilized world.
6. That in the sienal victories gained by our ar
mies since the enforcement of the Emancipation
Proclamation, we behold an indication of the ap
pioval of heaven on that measure.
6. That every citizen should abstain byword or
deed from interposing obstacles in the way of the
prosecution of tho war, but to employ all the
nutans God has given to assist inatrikmc down
the r* bdiion.
7. That the Providence of God in the events of
tbewar. declare pithily that he la compelling the
ration to ricognizt the maiJiaod of the negro .
which the system of slavery has been endeavoring
to ernah oct.
8. That it la a matter of great gratification to all
Christiana, that the President In all his official
proclamations, recognizes so distinctly the effici
ency of Chris’ian faith, and the overruling hand
Of God in shaping the fortunes of oar country.
9. That a man who withholds his hearty sapport
from the Administration, znsy be justly aaspreted
of wsntol sympathy with, and loyalty fo the Gov
10. That they cordially approve of the policy of
the Administration in the enforcement of the con
scription act, and the suspension of the writ of
hobean corjntt touching offences against the Gov
Hev. Mr. Crane, of this city, offered a mi
nority report. His resolutions do not en
dorse the Emancipation Proclamation, or
any of the measures of the Administration.
They denounce all secret societies, thus put
ting the Loyal Union League in the same
category with the Knights of the Golden
Circle. They leave slavery out, almost, If
not altogether, and protest against inquiring
into the causes of the war. This minority
report of Mr. Crane was laid on the table,
only fifteen or sixteen voting against such
disposition of It. This may be considered a
test vote. An interesting debate then took
place, in which able speeches were mads in
favor of the majority report, by Messrs. Mc-
Coy, Bbezm, Somber, Sample, and Andrews.
The last two gentlemen were particularly
pointed, loyal and patriotic, andthe confer
ence is decidedly with them.
Messrs Buck, Cartwright, Adams, Crane,
and Sucker favored a more temporising
To-morrow the resolutions will be doubt
less passed; probably not more than nine or
ten votes will be given against them. This
Isa most Important movement of this body,
as come of the speakers said to day its loy
alty has heretofore been considered by other
conferences as of an equivocal character. It
represents a very important part of the State,
in many portions of which there is much
I consequently consider the position the
conference wSI undoubtedly assume as a
gnat step gained in Central ana Southern
Illinois, in favor of freedom and loyalty, and
against slavery and secession.

St. Pact* Oct. 9, 1563.
The Assistant Provost Marshal General of
this State received orders to-day to proceed
with the draft on the 25th inst. In the mean
time Got. Swift has been authorized to raise
a cavalry regiment for frontier service. The
time of service of the mounted rangers now
on the frontier expires in December, and a
large part of them will undoubtedly re-enlM,
As we have hut 1,425 to raise, It is likely
that they will all be secured by volunteering,
and the State escape a draft
The 9th regiment left for St. Louis via Chi
.cago to day.
St. Pam, Minn., Oct B.—Ramsey’s treat?
expedition is likely to foil, on account of the
large price demanded by the Indians for
their lands. The? demand SIOO in money
and $55.621-2 in goods per head for fifty
years. The demand of the Bed Lake and ,
Pembina tribe*, combined, amounted to over
$10,000,000. They will probably agree to
take $20,000 for the right of way on Red
River md over their lands. This is the oiler

Headquarters Arht op the Potomac,

there have been indications of a collision be
tween the two armies, but I doubt if any will
speedily occur. Our forces now at the front
thought, yesterday and the night before, that

Murfreesboro, Tenn., Oct 9.—Gov. John
son; This morning I learn that Gen. Crook
overtook Gen. Wheeler twelve miles to the
right in the direction of Franklin, fought and
whipped him, hilling 130 of his men, cap
tnring S2B prisoners and 4 pieces of artillery.
The rebels are retreating closely pursued by
enr troops, with a fair prospect of capturing
most of the men under Wheeler’s immediate
command. ' The rebels had divided their
forces before Crook overtook them. How
many Wheeler had with him is. unknown.
Tours, &c,
[Signed.] W. P. Woodbbxbge, Gen.
Washington, Oct, 9.— The MepuJAican Ex
tra says: The Government has advices from
Chattanooga to the Cth. On the sth, the rebel
batteries opened onjour position at a range of
8 and 2 7-10 miles. A dispatch from Rose
crons* headquarters ot the Cth says: Not a
man was injured by the rebel batteries yester
day. Other dispatches show the impregnable
position of Eosecrans. ' There is no official
information of the rebel statement that two
of Sosecranfi* over the Ten
nessee have been carriAaway. Telegraphic
communication has been restored between
Nashville and Stevenson.
Washington. Oct 9,18(3,
It is ascertained that none of Gen. Soso
crane' very latest dispatches, which are to
the evening of the sth Inst., mention any
thing relative to the situation in the locality
of Chattanooga. All of them refer entirely
to military details. The other dispatches,
however, recently received by the Govern
ment, speak of events in that quarter, and
are from Gen. Meigs.
Louisville, Oct. 9.—Onr Nashville corres
pondent says that but three buildings were
bunted by rebels at Shelbyville, Tenn., the
Court House and two others. The town was
plundered throughout, and come 1,500 pris
oners ore reported captured, but this is doubt
Major Lester, fromthe Confederate cavalry,
captured Cart. Smith, of Sheridan's staff and
257 wagons; Including 15 sutler's wagons and
487 men, at Waldrcn’s Eidge. 537 men were
captured at McMinnville.
Guerillas are reported on the Louisville
road. Fears are entertained that Gallatin or
vicinity will be attacked. It is reported that
Pillow is promoted to Major General In the
Confederate service.
New York, , OcL 9.—The Scrcld's Wash
ington dispatch, Oct. Bth, states: By the
Mett private advices from the South, it ap
pears that Bragg's army has been reinforced
since the battle of Chickamauga, by the fol
lowing troops: one division from Richmond,
commanded by Gen. Arnold Elsy; one from
Western Virginia, commanded by Gen. Sam.
Jones; one from Petersburg and Wel

The Herald lias the following special:
yAKTTVTTj.it, Oct. 8, —Up to this time we
have no news ol especial Importance regard
ing the doings ot either oar own forces or
those of the enemy lathe neighborhood of
BaUroacT communication has not been re
turned. The damage to the railroad Is greater
than was at first supposed.
Information has been received which goes
to show that the enemy has divided his
mounted force engaged in the recent raid into
several detachments, and these again Into
minor ones, and that each detached bands
now infest the mountains and woods in those
neighborhoods, thereby rendering common
road travel dangerous to other than strong
military commands.
Telegraphic communication was still inter
rupted to day between here and Stevenson,
Alabama. It Is reported it will be 0. K. again
I saw a gentleman to-day who was made
prisoner by the rebel forces, when they were
in the neighborhood for Murfreesboro. This
gentleman says that the rebels Intended to
reach onr railroad line some two days sooner
than they did, but, owing to unfortunate
causes and detention incident to moving their
artillery, they were delayed, and bad at lost
to make extra efforts to get up in time to
cause their movements to be a surprise, or
effect their object He also says that the
rebels admitted having tailed to carry oat to
fall success their main design, and they de
stroyed the railroad bridges as much to pro
tect their retreat, and for the sake of doing
some mischief, as fihey did from any consid
eration of interference with Rosecrans* sup
plies or reinforcements.
New Tobk, Oct 9 —A ■Washington special
to the New York World says:
The Government is once morein communi
cation with Rosecrans.
Gen. Hooker was at Murfreesboro when
Wheeler made his raid. Communications are
about fully restored, and everything will go
forward as usual.
New Tons, Oct. 9.— The Washington cor
respondent ot the Commercial states that the
recent rebel advance in Bosecrans’ rear,
S roves to be an extensive reconnolssance to
iscovcr what forces were moving to the sup
port of our army. It did not have in view, at
least, such were not the results, any serious
interruption of communication, which the
rebels well knew would bring on on engage
ment which would end in serious defeat to
them, a fact fhlly realized before their object
was accomplished.
What little intelligence was gained by the
rebels it is not proposed to state here. By
this time the rebel cavalry will be back south
of the Tennessee Blver; and from the prepa
rations to keep open communications with
Chattanooga, it is not believed that they will
run the risk of penetrating so far within onr
Gen. Booker, who was published a few
days since as being at Nashville, has leit that
place, but not to command Burnside’s force,
as was lately Intimated. His position is en
tirely separate and independent.
Onihe whole, the officials here seem to bo
well pleased with the situation of Rosecrans 1
army. The day is now past for the rebels to
crown Chickamaugawitn what possibly might
have been a legitimate success. East Ten

The rebels endeavored to break tho railroad

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Fulton, HI,, Oct. 0,1803.
I havejnst listened to a two hoars speech
by Senator Grimes. It was delivered at Lyons,
on the opposite aide .of the river. It was
a candid, dispassionate, Union speech, In
which he made on eloquent appeal to all par
ties to drop politics for the time being, and
Iced tho Government a hearty support in Its
efforts to put down the rebellion. He briefly
referred to the patriotic tone of the Union
platform, and then took up tho “Democratic,”
and showed its insincere, Jesuitical and trea
sonable features. He dwelt at length on this
point, and thoroughly dissected and clearly
exposed the rottenness of the Bylogton abor
Senator Grimes spoke of the candidates of
the two parties, and paid a Mgh compliment
to the two standard bearers lor their bravery
and military skill. He had a hand in the pro
motion of J. M. Tattle from the Colonelcy of
the 2d Infantry tn & brigadier Generalship,
and. had supposed that the General was more
radical in politics than himself, as the General
had pretended to be for exterminating the
rebels of the South, and the speaker could not
go quite eo far os that. But Gen. Tattle had
fallen into the snare of bid men; Ms politi
cal advisers are of doubtful patriotism, and
were merely using Mm, for the time being,
for base ends. They do not expect to elect
Mm, but they run him for the sake of saving
the whole patnotic element of the Democrat
ic party from sloughing off.
In a private conversation with Senator
Grimes I learn that the prospects in all parts

large siege material. During the last.two

Leavenworth, Oct 9,1663.
Gen. Bluet efcaped, and was met below
Fort Scott by rehforcemcnts, of which he
took command and started in pursuit of
Quantrell. I have received the following ad
ditional particulars concerning the attack:
The General was lu advance of the wagons,
ana while waiting for them in the vicinity of
Pond’s camp, he noticed a body of 100
men advancing in line, who, being dressed in
our uniform, he at first supposed belonged to
Pond’s command, on drill; while at the same
time he had some suspicion that they were
rebels. He had the escort formed in line, and
thetand and wagons were ordered to the rear,
while he advanced towards them.
He had proceeded but a short distance
when they fired on him, and at the same time
he heard firing in Pond’s camp. As he tam
ed to give the order to fire he discovered the
entire escort running from him. Seeing oar
men break, the enemy charged followed by
about two hundred others from the timber.
With the assistance of Major Curtis the
General endeavored to halt and rally the es
scort, but only succeeded in detaining fifteen
men. With these he turned on the enemy,
who retreated. He followed them until they
formed in force, when he halted with the de
termination of remaining until he could as
certain the fate of the escort and of Pond’s
With a force ot nine men he kept firing on
their rear until they moved south, where be
jolted Pond’s command,wbich he found sole,
with the exception of a small loss la killed
and wounded.
Copt. Todd, Quantrell’s Adjutant, has ar
rived In Pond’s camp, asking lor an, exchange
of prisoners. He sold they had a number of
their force wounded, among them Colonel
Shelby; also that they had Majon Curtis
eleven of onr men prisoners. Tho band Maj.
was captured and all the boys were brutally
shot through the head.
Qaantrell’s force came oni of McDonald
county, Mo. From Pond’s report I learn
that his camp was attacked: while at dinner.
Four of Pond’s men were killed and three
wounded. Tho whole number of killed from
Gen. Blunt's escort of 100 men was seventy
Gen. Schc field has telegraphed here that

11s, eon of Qcn. Curtis, bas been found. He
was thrown from Ms horse, shot through the
head, and evidently murdered after he was a
