hest of evidence that this confidence is well

The Battle of Lexington.
The accounts of the battle at Lexington,
Missouri, are very contradictory. There
was aiepoil from Cincinnati, by Monday's
papers, that Col. Mulligan had surrendered
to Cr'uc, the rebel commander, on Saturday,
while a, dispatch fioin Chicago states that
tho surrender took phco on Friday. An
other report stales that the story hns no
credit in SI. Louis; and still another stales
that the plat's and stripes were Hying over
Mulligans entrenchments on Saturday morn
ing. The exact Mind er of Federal troops
engaged is not stated, but is supposed to
have been bet ween three and four thousand.
The rebels wi re variously estimated from
fifteen to thirty thousand. J he seige is
said to have continued from Monday until
Fi iday. Col. .Mulligan's men were without
w aler all Thursday and Friday, and com
pletely exhausted. The l'nioii loss in kill-
j cd is said to be Mill, and the rebels over
I ;i(l(l0. The lid regiment Iowa volunteers, on
j the way to Lexington to re-enforce Mulligan
dale not given suddenly and unexpect
j ed!y came upon a body of '10(10 rebels; at
lihie Mills, Mo., when n battle commenced
and continued 1 !.. hours. They were about
to retire, when the rebels retreated; cross
iug the river just, in time to fall into the
hands of Lane's brigade, 1000 strong who
were also marching to re-enfori e Mulligan.
Tho Cnionists captured 800, and Killed illlOof
them. The rebels lied, and re-crossed the
river, when the Iowa regiment started in
pursuit. Col. Mulligan fought behind en
trenchments; but he was completely sur
rounded by the enemy, and cut oil' from all
supplies even being unable to obtain wa
ter. We shall look with interest for furth
er particulars.

port confirming the above surrender. Col.
Mulligan with all commissioned oliiccrs arc

Affairs in Kentucky.
j
Important events are about transpiring in
Keiitinky. The first light took place lust
Saturday, between a company ol rebel eav
ahy and the Hat boiirsville Home Guards
in which tho latter came out successful.
Gen. Anderson has issued a proclamation
on the occasion (if assuming command of
the Federal forces in that Slate, and Gov.
MsgoHiu has reluctantly conimondcd Col.
Crittenden to raise n force of militia to drive
the rebels out of the State in pursuance of
the resolutions of the Legislature. A large
rebel force is said to be at Howling Green
and another at Green ricr. Col. Gibson's
regiment encamped on Halt river twonh
miles south of Louisville, on Sunday night.
Ihiring the night his pickets were driven
in four of Ihcm turning up missing. The
secession proclivities of Gov. Magoffin and
Gin. liuckncr are now pretty well develop
ed. The former has vetoed every measure,
passed by the legislature, bearing against
the rebels, I lit, thanks to the loyally of (hat
body, they have all received a constitution
al majority over the vetoes. The latter has
proved himself to be all that has ever been
charged against him. No sooner had the
legislature passed the necessary war meas
ures for expelling the rebels, than Mr. I!uck
ner turns up a rebel general, and declares
his purpose by proclamation to drive the
Cnion troops from Kentucky. Doth liuck

this Institution, through their I'icsiderit,
Mr. C. (Jregory, have eolleeted ami expend-
.?'J,(iOO of the if.'l.OOl) subscribed to aid in

Hid it is estimated that twenty more sub
scribers for a full scholarship in the college,
with the payment of unpaii
irrearie'es. wi
meet all bills, paint and furnish the hall for
the winter course of lectures to be held by
Jhe V. M. A., and the free course of lectures
before the college "class, by citizens of that
ily and Slate. Klforts will be made at once
o secuio the above named objects, nud put
the college upmi n sure footing. 1'rcsiilcul,
Iregory is making every effort on his part
to secure the tlesiroil completion ol (he
work of founding this useful institution.
The sample and sales department is not only
w very useful, but a profitable branch of the
business of the college. Tlio college has
icon in session three months, has .'15 stu-

How to Get up a Regiment.
Pave Tod spent about ten thousand dol
lars in getting up a regiment for the war,
md his son belongs to it and vurrii'A a gun.
Of course as Mr. Tod was a man ol distinc
tion and wealth, his son could have had
commission, whether ho was of any account
or not. Hut that was not Old Dave's way.
His son must go into the ranks. The boy is
i good one too, one of the best shots in the
regiment, and has the reputation of killing
two prowling secession assassins.
Just what they Want.
The sympathisers with rebellion in the
north are doing just what the rebels most
desire. Ilicy keep up a partiznn civ on
purpose to create a division among the loy
al people, and to try to prevent enlistments
for the suppression of this rebellion. This
is as well understood as though the declar
ations were openly made.
