Perrysburg Journal. J. W. BAILEY, Editor. A GALLANT EXPLOIT. How the Arms were taken from the St. Louis Arsenal. The Sp.ingfield (III.) Jouinal Lai a Je tnilcd tlatemcnt of the execution of tho Qovrrnmtnt order to remore arms from the arsenal at St. Lon e, by Capt. etokei, of Chicago, formerly of the United Suu-s army. Ae a etrateio movfmcnt, the transaction will compare in importance with Anderson's transfer of his comniai d from Moultrie to Sumter, as upon its sue cossful execution depended the arming of the whole north-west, there being no oth er arms in the country available for the purpose. NoJ one but th e engaged in the service can fully approlu-nd the diffi culties attending it. Situated in a city boiling over with the elements of rt vo'u lu'ion ; j mlously watched by thousands of orgtnissd "minuta men" who hud a'l sworn that the arms should not be remov ed ; the nnthoritios of tin city covertly sympathizing with and abetting their foul schemes : commanded on all si'.les so tlml tt could not have .resisted an attack fur five minutes it will readily be seen that iho H'.tempt lo carry off the nnns whs an enterprise of no ordinary difficulty and danger. The Jou mil's statement is as follows: Capdtin Suikes had beeu teh graphed at Chicngj by the Governor of Illinois, to take coaimand of Camp Yates, Whtnhe arrive I in Spiingfield, the Government h-id received iufurmation that the arsenal a in dangfr, and tl at tho arms had bel ter be reinovud at one They were I hen hourly expecting tho return of a t-pecial messenger f.otn Wu-liinton, bringing lite necessary riqui ttion lor their reti.oval from the WarDeparlnient. This messen g r arrived o i Tuesdny morning, by the Great Western H.rltonl, but the requisi tion as not received and necess-ary ar rangements made until after the d- p-trlure of the train f r S . L mis. An ex ra en gine with one car attached was immedi ately procund, and Cup', iu S:okes s'art ed off at lightning spejd lo overhaul the regulr passentjer train before it reached St. Louis. This was done a fow miles this tiJe of Alton, the train having been kept there for near two hoars to allow the sp ci.il lo overtake 'c. Upon tho arrival of the litter, all tyes were direct d to wards the car to see who would get oiC, much speculation h xving arisen am ingst the p tssengers as to th-i cause of their de tention. Captain Siokes, however, man aged lo escape notice, and took hia si a', am msru iht- o her n tsseiu'ers in the Ir .i i which proceeded lo S:. Louis. I'p jn his arrival in the city he wtnt di rectly to the arsenal, which he found sur rounded by an im nense crowd, a id g lards 8tationea at every place of entrance, rind ing it impossible to penetrate through ih . crowd, and seeing a picket gutrd station ed at a short dis nnce, he sought the Cap tain of the gu trd and told him he was the bearer of dispatches from the S .creiary of War, and must g?t into the arsenal. A way was eventually opened, an 1 Captaio Stokes found himself in the interior of the arsenal. Capt.Callend r introduced him to Cnpt. Lyon, ihe officer in cha'g of the arsenal, and the three officers held a long council upon the n inner in which the requisition should be comp'ied with. It was at once evident to Captain S okes tin', the arsenal could not be held again s any serious a tack, and he was more anxious lo have the arms removed without delay. The "minute men" who were petroling (It streets were constantly on the alert, stop ping every person whom tiny regarded with the hast tuspicion.and it any intima tion of the puipoie to remove the arms ha I got abroad they would dout!ess have endeavored to prevent it ; indeed, t ey had publicly diolared thai they would at tack and cap' ure the arsenal ou the first attempt at removing the arms. We may mention here a circumstance that will account for the extensive prepa rations made here for the ti asportation of iroops on Thursday evening, which did not take place. 2,000 men had been or dered to 8t. Louis to assist in the removal and they were to have left this city ou that evening, but Capt. Stokes, knowing that what was to be done must bu accomplish ed by stratagem, and not by fjree, and seeing that the prts'-nce of troops from Il linois would be thy bignal fur an immedi ate and general attack, sent his private agent to Alton to countermand the order. The tto pi accordingly remained where they were, and the cars did not leave, greatly to the nurpme of all who had ob served the preparations made. The order from the department was simply for ten thousand mu-kets, say ing no hing about the cartridges, field pieces or anything else. The arms were stored in the tl.ird sto.y of the buildin and a fa igue party was detailed to lower them to the first floor, while Oapl. Btokes ma le arrange mcnts to have ihe steamers in readiness lo receive them on Thuisdty night. Two of ihe fastest boats o:i tie river had b ten chartered by the S ate of Illinois for the service, and were lying a' Alton, ia readiness for immediate orders. These arrangements consumed all of i Wednesday, and it was deemed unadvis- ; to attemp'. the lemoval on that niht as suspicion bad already been aroused, anel Csptain Stokes movements closely watched. By good fortune there happen ed to be in the arsenal t-ix hundred flint- lock muskets belonging to the State of Kentucky sent there for the purpose of being changed in'o porcussion locks. inese were boxed up and directed, and sent to the city in wagons. As Captain Sokes anticipated ihey were imnediately seized by minute men, who supposed that these guns were the sole object of lis en terprise, and consequently a great part of their suspicion was diverted from his real undf rUkintT iniirsuay nipni at ju o ciocx, tne line rfamA.4f-.,.f It II .1 1 i nmti ti'i ui tiuB uruj'pcu UOrTU j j j quietly to the aisenal, and was intde f tut when the lo iding iiutuedialuly bcgAn.700 men being detailed to attend lo the duty. The botes were piled up around the en gines and boilers so as to protect them, and the men working them from shot, should any bv tired, and two field-pieces were placed ia the bow and stern of the boat, in rra liness to repel any approaoh. Picket guards were thrown out tor rorut distanoe from the line of embarkation, and all persons straggling alocg ihtt way were arrested and held to prevent their giving informa' ion to the city. Ten ih u sand arms had been lowered into the Erst s'ory, in alJition to about three thousand already deposited there. All these were removed into the steamer b -fore ISVclock. Capt. 8toket and Cap'. Callendxr then held a consultation and finally conoluded that the remainder of the arm? aud muni tions of war, except those necessary to arm the gMri.-ou, whhh then comprised about three tl ouar.d men, shoulJ be la ken. All hands were th -n sot to w,otk to bring them down stairs, and a' half pat two o'clock, 2 1. OJ0 mu'keKSJO carbines, 600 Colt's revolvers, I lO.OlM musket car tridges, a quantity of swords, perfusion caps and oilier Munitions of war were faff ly stolid on tho stc.imer. fclu then cist loose anl attempted 'o start, but it was found ihit she was ftst upon a rock anil immovable under the full power of her immense en 'ines. For half an hour she labored with all her en ergies to extricate he rielf.but did not mov a hair's breadth, and thcro was imminent danger that tint pulling of her engines, which sounded tremendously on ihe still air of night, would biing tho minute men down upon her. A number of troop were brought aboard with loaded arms to guard against, and resist lo tho den h nnv attack. Capla'n S okes says this ha'f hou waithe most trying he ever spent in hi life, as we can well imagine.

He deserves great credit for the adroit and energetic manner iu which he ex touted the duty confided to him. Capts. Calen dar and Lyon and Capt. Stokeo' special tg.-nt, who aecomptnied him, also deserve tue thanks of the country for the assist ance rendered in tho removal, which was highly meritorious on their ptrl.inasrauch as it was beyond their strict orders. All concerned in the transfor.both at S.I.otis and Alton, displayed the greatest euthu tiasm and energy. The ra'lroad trains and steamboats had been put under crmtrol of Capt. Sokes, aud well did they obey his orders. When the City of Alton left St. Louis, orders were given to fire upon any armed boat (hat approached her, without a king any questions, and' to tcuttle and sink the steamer rather than be captured. The powder magazines of Luffin, Smith & Holes wero seiz.-d that night by the min ute men, w ho had planted a ha tery on (he poial at ihe Lend of the river, where the channel goes very ut ar the Missouri shore but ihey were not sharp enough to bring to the City of Alton as the passed the point.
