The Civil W ur in. Missouri.
The Union's St. Louie correspondent fur
nishes the following, under date of June 18th.
Colonel Brown’s regiment and Colonel Salo
man's battalion left this city on Saturday by
t he Pacific Railroad.
They go to Kolia, in Pl elps county, on
the Southwest Branch, whence, with Col.
Siegel's regiment, they will march to Spring
ji e jJ, and to the southwest corner of the
State, to prevent the assembling of troops iu
that quarter by the Governor, and to pre-
T ent the threatened irruption by Ben. Mc-
Culloch’s army from Arkansas. McCulloch,
jt is said, has a camp in Benton county, Ar
kansas, where he has gathered a force of Tex
ans, Indians, and Arkansas troops, variously
estimated at from 1,200 to 5,000 men. From
Greene county we learn that there is a force
of Union men, estimated at 1,200 men, under
John S. Phelps, organized for self protection.
They will probably cooperate with the
United States troops. In the same county
there is also a camp of 600 men, organized
under the Military Bill, who ure expected to
support the Governor.
IVhat may be the final result of the war in
Missouri we cannot now determine, but it is
jn every way probable that the State forces
will meet with an inglorious defeat. The
Evening News, of the 17th says;
It may be that two thousand militia, re
sponding to the Governor's call, will rally at
Boonville and demand a battle with the Fed
eral troops ; but instead of making an en
gagement with a superior force advancing
both west and east from St. Louis and St.
Joseph, it is probable the Governor will he
compelled to retreat from Boonville also,
evacuate the State with his chief adherents,
aud endeavor to escape to Arkansas. Wheth
er even he will succeed in making his escape
through n region swarming with Union me.:,
and with the strong column advancing from
Rolla, in Phelps county, to Springfield, to
cut off his retreat, would seem alarmingly
doubtful. The Federal army engaged iu the
interior of the State consists of 10,200 men,
%500 of whom are at Herman aud Jeffereon
City; 8,200 at Rolla; 2,500 at St. Joseph
and on the Hannibal and St. Joseph Rail
road; 1,000 on the North Missouri railroad,
and 1,000 at Bird's Point, opposite Cairo,
in addition to this, there is a force of 2,500
remaining at St. Louis, which could be in
eia ised to 7,000 in a few hours by the ac
cession of the regiments in camp at Belleville,
Jacksonville, Springfield ond Quincy.
Col. Boernstein, who was left by General
Lyon, in command of Jefferson City, issued

Jefferson and vicinity;

Fatai. Accident in Ybksa.—Ou Wednes
day evening Inst, while n cumber (if men
were employed in erecting the pavilion at
Yrekn, says the Journal, n serious accident'
occurred, resulting in the death of Mr. Ed
ward Taylor, of that place. The particulars,
are ns follows It became necessary to change
one of the guys attached to the center pole,
and for this purpose Mr, Taylor was sent
aloft. Before the workmen could get reedy,
he grew impatient and cut one of the ropes,
supposing he would be able to hold to it
with his hands, No sooner, how vc-r, was
the rope cut than it was jerked out of Ids
hands and the pole commenced falling. The
workmen below. The workmen below called
to him to slide down, hut it seems he had
not presence of mind enough to even make
«n effort to do so, though all who witnessed
it say the pole moved very slowly until with
in twenty or thirty feet of the ground, when
it fell with a heavy crush. He was instantly
picked up, but life was extinct. It was as
certained that his neck was dislocated, and
his left arm and thigh, which were around
the pole, crushed. When it became apparent
to him that he was falling, he exclaimed, “O,
any God,” but never uttered a sound after
wards. No possible blame can be Attached
to any one hut himself, as he had positive
instructions not to out the rope until all was
nmdo fast below. What makes his conduct
appear more strange and inconsistent is tlie
fact that lie was an experienced sailor. He
was a native of Salem, Massachusetts, and
thirty odd years of age.

The Irish Press ou the War.
From tlie Dublin Irishman, May 11.
Tlii? American war fill? u? with pain and
disgust, such as wo have no words to convey.
Fratricidal It is; fur nearer kindred never
fought before than those men of the North
.*nd South who now thirst fur one-another's
And for what ? The ambition of a few
unscrupulous demagogues : the fanaticism of
a howling mob: the sordid greed oi a hand
ful of hungry traders.
Our sympathies are still with the South,
we confess. Not that we have any other
feeling for slavery, the curse of America,
than one of nborrence ; but because we be
lieve the South has been forced into this
quarrel by the arrogance and fanaticism of a
faction in the North.
Yet—shall we frankly confess it?—our
sympathy with the Southerns has been des
perately shaken sineo we last wrote. Why ?
Simply then, because we have, in the mean
time, found the leading newspapers in Eng
land defending that side of the quarrel.
A friend or two have already taken us to
task for what we said on this subject last
week. They have accused us of hacking up
slavery, of siding with the masters of the
poor Negro, and all that. That have ear
nestly protested that we are in the wrong,
we are inclined to confess now, that we fear
we were a '• leetle” in the wrong last week.
But understand. We have nothing to re
tract. on the " nigger” questions we have no
apology to make for supposed advocacy of
slavery. The one single reason why wo
think we were not altogether in the right is
this- we find the organs of England on the
same side.
When England takes part with the South,
she ean have no possible good object in view.
When she loudly hacks up the seceded States,
she must, have discovered that the integrity
of the Union was inimical to her piratical
power. Therefore, though the South seems
to have been right in this quarrel, we confess
to a pang of terror and alarm, when we find
our enemy—the enemy of humanity—Eng
land—backing up the quarrel of the South
When we Irish are side by side with
England in nny quarrel, we must be in tlie
wrong, it is the natural instinct of our race
to hate the English side, and take the other;
and if the Southern States of America have
England for their backer, they must look on
it as n tiling of fate to have Ireland for their

oil wlmt ground? Because, us the Rambler
openly declares, the great Republic of the
United States was tlie one great rival of
England on the high seas—an “arrogant”
rival, to be hated and abhorred—nr.d so this
blessed Christian journal expresses its earnest
hope that the said Republic may be broken
up, the “arrogant” rival destroyed, and the
pirate flag of England be free to float tri
umphant over the ocean!
We confess we were not prepared for this
startling view of tlm question ; and since we
have read these Engli-h pronunciumetitos our
sympathy with the Southern States nas re
ceived a dreadful blow.
la taking u side oa any quarrel, England
can only have her own base and Bcltish de
signs in view. These designs are essentially
opposed to the best interest of humanity.
The Southerners may have right on their
side originally—ns we believe they have; but
when England favors their quarrel, then
such nn enormous amount of wrong—direful,
unmitigated wrong—is leagued with them as
almost utterly obliterates their right, and
leaves the overwhelming balance of justice
on the other side. God pity these Sot herns,
blighted by the curse of English favor aud
We take the other side instinctively: for
our hereditary foe is over the way. Whoso
accepts tiie alliance and friendship of our fuc
(were he ever so right before) become our
enemy by that very act; and we cahnot
wish his cause success.
From the Dublin Nation, May 11th.
Our countrymen in America have resolved
to give their assistance towards maintaining
the integrity of the United States. We do
not suppose that they are all unanimous in
taking that course, but it is clear, from a
perusal of tlu-ir organs of the press, that the
vast majority of them have enthusiastically
ranged themselves on the side of the North,
in the struggle now unhappily commenced.
Their views will bo found expressed in the
speech delivered by Richard O’Gortnnn at
tlie New York mass meeting, which will be
found with our American intelligence. It is
well known that hitherto the sympathies of
the Irish in America did not run all lengths
with the Northern or Abolition party. Ju
fact, the extreme men of that party frequent
ly charged them with being favorable to the
slave system, and tunny were tlie taunts
levelled at them lor having, as it was said,
run away from slavery in Ireland, to assist in
maintaining it in America. Tins, however,
was not a true deftcription of U»e lrish-Amer
ican position. Tlu-y left a land in which
they were oppressed, find went to one in
which they found freedom. Ac they were
enemies to the government that Injured them,
so they were friends to the constitution that
sheltered and protected them. As they hated
the Union .lack, and longed to see it trailed
in the dust, eo tii.eyk>\ed the Stars and
St ripes, and wished to keep it dying high
and free, and unsullied for ever. They stood,
therefore, by the laws of the Union, and up
held them, much against the will, in many
instances, of the Northern States. Now they
mean t;> uphold the same laws and the same
flag against the will of the Southerns. “We
swore,” say these IrMi-Americans, “to be
true to the Constitution of the United States,
and we will keep our oat h.”
So, the 69th Regiment of militia, every
man of whom is Irish—tue same gallffntregi
ment that refused to parade before the Prince
of Wales in America—lms marched away
from New York to defend the city ol Wash
ington—the capital of the Union. Aud Thus.
Francis Meagher has issued a call for Irish
volunteers to go under his leadership, on a
similar mission—a call which was almost im
mediately responded to b} T thrice the requi
site number of volunteers,
W e wished that this fratricidal war should
not have arisen; now wo can only pray that
ii may soon cease.

I New York, June 18 —The entrenchments
. at Manassas are very strong. The rebels ex

them across the l’otomac. They do not say
whet they will do in case no attack is made
on them from this direction.
The Government has received information
that the rebels have set a trap in some woods,
fifteen miles from Alexandria, into which
they expect to draw the unsuspecting Feder
al forces. Several small batteries have been
erected by them on the outskirts of the wood
—a pretense —and by throwing up entrench
ments there, they propose to carry their
forces at no distant day, and dress forward
their pickets until a collision ensues. The
scout who brings this intelligence also states
that a number of Indians, dressed in army
coats, who are supposed to belong to the
savages who volunteered from North Caro
lina, were seen lurking around.

be placed at Point Lookout, to protect that
