ABC OUR TICKETS BEADY?
See that your tickets are ready, in
time for the election, August 1st, and
distribute them amon the voters.
The Hessians are endeavoring to cover up their
disastrous rout by every species of excuse and
falsehood that ba filed malice can invent.
They Bay that the ammunition for the artillery
having been exhausted, the caisson? moveH to the
rear precipitately, which frightened a group of ci
vilians and teamsters, who commenced a retreat
frith great haste, and that their movement started
the reserve force, which finally caused the retreat
of the whole army, with a precipitation not par
alleled on any battle ground in the world.
It thus appears, from their own statement, that
the batteries at the strong intrenchments, the field
artillery, the charge of infantry and horse could
not intimsdate the "grand army." Nothing but the
rapid movements of their own caissons and the
fright of their teamsters could produce a panic and
a rout ! Caissons tire great things, so are civilians,
ditto teamsters '.
Again, they now say that from 300 to oOO men
only were killed in all thia rout. 'Washington was
sunk in gloom, and the loss was "frightful," ac
cording to the first bulletin isued from the imperial
city of Lincoln, and all tliia was for a loss less than
500 men and smaller by one-half than the loss at
Big Bethel on their side.
Teamsters were frightened, civilians rim, the re
eerve retreated, and the force engaged were routed,
and only S00 to 500 were lost ! 'What gallant inva
ders ! "What brave fellows, that were threatening
to march to Richmond in three or four days, and
that fled, like sheep, when 300 or 500 were killed
out of CO.OOO or 70,000 ! The South may well trem
ble when such an army shakes the earth ! When
they come again, they had.better dispense with cais
sons, teamsters and useless civilians, and also issue
strict orders to "the rebels," by no means to kill as
many as 300 men. Otherwise, look out for the rout
of the grand army again !
There is no doubt these lying oracles of the Black
Republicans do injusticeto their own soldiers, in
making these pitiful excuses for one of the greatest
and most signal defeats ever sustained by any army.
Our own President gives them credit for good fight
ing, when he says that night closed on a hard fought
field. They sustained the shock of battle fcr several
hours, but could not conquer our brave boys, who
were determined on victory or death. Finding that
the columns they encountered were resistless, and
that night was about to close on them, surrounded al
most as they were by the bravest soldiers of the
South, they were seized with panic and fled precipi
tately towards TVasliington. It is incredible that
they only lost 300 to 500 men. Their loss, in truth,
was not less in killed than 10,000, as will be shown
by after developments. Let their oracles, for once,
tell the truth and shame the dcviL
Let not the people, amid the exciting and stirring
events that engage their miDds, forget the 1st cf
August election day. Let them sustain by theu
votes the patriotic and determined course of their
gallant Governor Isiiam G. Hakrh. Let it never be
slid by the Hessians at the North, that the Gover
nor around whom all Tennesse rallied as seni
around a father, in "the times that tried men's
oouls," has been defeated, in the very midst of the
war, by one who is supported by the whole Union
strength of the State.
People of Tennessee, you know what interpret!
tion the North will place upon the defeat of our
gallant Governor under the circumstances. It mat
ters not that the interpretation may be erroneous
Will you strike down him who has sustained your
rights in such an hour, for the trivial reasons given
fcy politicians? We think not. Go to the polls then
anl cast yrur votes "for the Permanent Constitu
tion'" and for Isiiam G. Harris.
It is very important too, that you select wise and
good men for your Legislators. No mere politU
cians. who are dreaming of constructing parties
upon fancied divisions or iojuries, ought to be toler
ated. Vote for the best men, irrespective of all for
mer party distinctions, men who care for your hon
or, safety and glory, and who arc not tied to ancient
prejudices and mere clap trap measures. Vote for
such men openly and boldly. Banish the word
" Union," as a party word, from your vocabulary,
as unworthy of s. people gallantly fighting a Hessian
foe to maintain their independence, and vote for no
man who clings to it as a rallying cry or an appel
lation of distinction in the past. Thus will you root
out the last vestige of the corrupt Government you
liave just cast from you, and be worthy of the h'eh
resolves you have made.
The "Grand Army" under Gen. McDowell had
hardly commenced moving when excuses were be
ing offered for old "Fuss and Feathers.'' The
Washington correspondent of tha Philadelphia Xorth
Amtriar.n says that it was well understood that the
final order for thia march of the Federal army to
wards Richmond did not meet with the cordial ap
proval of Gea. Scott, who entertained the opinion
and belief that the troops were not in the thorough
condition necessary for the emergency. In another
week, or fortnight at least, he was sure all would
have been ready, but the orders from the President
were imperative, and were therefore obeyed.

It is claimed by his supj or'cra that Maj. Polk
voted for separation and representation and is for
a vigorous prosecution of the war, and is so au
thoritatively stated, but the fact that he did not
raise his voice for the advocacy of tho great cause
and contented himself with simply Voting "a fold

to lead the column in Tennessee in this perilous
moment. Harris is "the right man in the right

statesman is required at the helm of State in this
great storm, and not a mere politician.
Wo are sensibly impressed with the fact, that all

He has favored us, as no people were ever favored

Knowing that tho women of Alabama are anxious
to do everything in their power for the comfort of
the soldiers in the service of the Confederacy, I beg
leave to suggest that each ono of them knit one pair
of substantial woolen socks, and deposit the same
with the Judge of the Probate Court of the county
in which she resides, who will have them forwarded
to the Governor of Alabama, at Montgomery from
whence they will be forwarded free of cost to the
soldiers before the cold weather commences. The
Governor deems nothing more necessary, than this
suggestion to secure from the patriotic ladies of the
State a sufficient number of socks to protect the feet
of our brave soldiers from the frosts of winter.
We commend this subject to the attention of the
ladies of Tennsssce. By adopting the suggestiocs
to their sistcr3 of Alabama, they can contribute
very much to the comfort of our gallant soldier?,
during the coming winter. Let every lady in the
State knit at least one pair of woolen socks, and
deposit them with some merchant in their respect
ive county towns, to bo forwarded to the Quarter
Master's Department in this city, and they will then
be distributed to our soldiers. Let the ladies bear
this in mind, and knit the socks instead of sending

Letter from (Jo v. Harris.
MEMnns, July 23, 1SG1.
To the EnrroKs or the Avalanche : "Your edito
rial of yesterday morning justifies me in asking the
use of your columns to correct an error into which
a portion of the public press of the State have
fallen. That error is in relation to tho supproad
existence of an issue between the President ot the
Confederate States and myself, as to the terms upon
which the Provisional Army of Tennessee is to be
transferred to the Government cf the Confederate
There has been no issue whatever, nor the slight
est misunderstanding between that Government,
or any one of it3 officers, and myself upon that sub
ject. I hare, from tho beginning, seen tho importance
of placing all the military resources and military
appropriations of the several Statrs under the con
trol of the Confederate States, and on the 24th of
June, and several times since that day, have written
to the President, calling his attention to the import
ance of transferring the army of Tennessee to the
Confederate States, and suggesting the importance
of having an unierstanding with regard to several
questions connected with the transfer. I have also
fcuggeated that when Tennessee shall have contribu
ted her twenty-five thousand brave volunteers to
the Government, she would be entitlad to. and I was
confident would receive at the hands of the Presi
dent, her full proportion of the posts of houor, a3
well as those of danger, in the field and staff ap
pointments in the array.
I have recommended in general terms tho vari
ous officers heretofore appointed by me. and insist
ed upon their re-appointment by the President: but
have at no time made or thought of making the ap
pointment of any man or set of men.a condition precc
dent to the transfer. So far from it, I have regard
ed it as a matter of too much imporLinae to the
public to allow the interests of any individual to
retard it for a moment.
I have an agent now at Richmond for the purpose
of conferring with the President and Secretary of
War, upon all questions that it is deemed important
to have understood in making this transfer. I have
no doubt they will be settled to the entire satisfac
tion of the Government and myself in a few days,
ns they are of a character which need only to b
suggested to be settlpd. This, doubtless, would have

to the State in the general and staff appointments. I
however have not at any time doubted the dispo
sition of the President to do ample justice to Ten
nessee and Tenneticans by giving position to such
as have shown themselves competent and worthy.
More than this 1 shall not ask at liia hands.
In the meantime I shall continue to co-operate

Here is a distinct issue between Harris and Polk,
made by the pertinacious organ of the latter, in his
behalf, and, as we are bound 'to believe, with his
sanction and approval. Harr.s is in favor of nl&-
cing in East Tennessee a sufficient military force to
guard against tlie threatened Lincoln invasion in
that quarter, and Polk is opposed to it. William
H. Polk, if elected Governor, is to withdraw tho
Confederate troops from East Tennessee, to "concil
iate a brave, generous and fearless people, who
have been misled by Andy Johnson." and Tcnncsso
ans are asked to vote for him in order that thU C3n
cVXalory policy may be adopted. Governor Harris
has planted forces in llist, as he has done in Middle
and West Tennessee, to protect the State from an
invasion of thieves and assassins, whose motto is
"Booty and Beauty," and for tliis Tennesseans are
a9ked by the JiulMin to condemn him and vote
We accept this issue, .and are ready to go before
the people upon it We are willing that the people
shall decide whether East Tennessee shall be left
unguarded for Lincoln t introduce his arms and
ammunition and armed men into it without opposi
tion, trusting to the conciliatory effect of such re
markable forbearance, to mollify the rampant trea
son of Andy Johnson's followers, or whether tho
fctate shall be effectually guarded against such in
sidious inroads of our remorseless enemy. Those
who are in favor of the former course will vote for
William H. Polk, and those who are in favor of the
latter will vote for Isham G. Harris. Harris and
the defence of East Tennessee against the enemy
roiu, ana its atjanaonment to tne enemy this is
the issue presented by the organ of the latter in
this city. Nothing else, that we can see, can be
made out of its reiterated and daily attacks on Gov.
Harris lor sending troops to East Tennessee. Wheth
er the candidate and the organ agree, is a question
between themselves the presumption is that the
organ speaks by au-hority.
Rut to justify its attack on Gov. Harris, the UuZ
letin is compelled to assume that "the sending troops
over the mountains to prevent an invasion" is a
mere pretext. VV ill it deny that East Tennessee, has
been and is threatened with invasion by Lincoln?
We assert that we have been and are more serious
ly menaced in that quarter than in any other, and
that if Gov. Harris bad neglected to send forces
there to guard against the danger, he would have
deserved impeachment. We are satisfied that non e
would have been louder in condemnation of his
want of care fur the safety of the Commonwealth
than the Bulletin itself, had he omitted to do that
which it now so fiercely condemns.
It is notorious that East Tennessee has been se
lected ns the chief point of attack by the enemy.
The Lincoln press has announced that WcGlclIan
was forcing his way to that destination through
Western Virginia, and that arms were to be in
troduced through Kentucky for the adherents of
Andy Johnson, llie impudent traitor has pro
claimed his purpose to arm his followers, and kin
dle the flames of civil war in East Tennessee. The
Union men and their leaders of that section openly
adhere to Lincoln's government, nelson, Maynard
and Bridges are candiJates for Lincoln's Congress.
Tho traitors avow their purposes to detach East
Tennessee lrom the otate it they fail to subject
her to the dastardly tyrant and assassin, whom they
Lirge quantities of guns and ammui tion have been
recently sent by Lincoln into counties in Kentucky,
adjoining Kist Tennessee, and placed in the hands

and who say that their special duty is to act as an
ec:rt and guard for large quantities of gun3 and
munitions of war, which Lincoln 13 to send through
the mountain passes of Kentucky into this State.
There is abundant evidence ot a conspiracy be
tween tho armed Lincolnites of Kentucky and the
Abolitionists of the North, to co-operate with the
traitors in Eist Tennt s ;ce in an attack upon our
State, soon to be made.
In the faf s of these notorious evidences of the
plans, and purposes, and, also, of the acts of the
enemy, the IluUtiin censures Gov. Harris for taking
the precaution to station a few regimenU at the
gaps leading from Kentucky into East Tennessee, to
intercept the arms which Lincoln is trying to smug
g c iito tint section of the State for our destruction!
It siys those troops wero "sent there nonwal'y to
prevent the invasion of that portion of the Stata,"
and charges that "they have gone there to drive the
people into rebellion against thr authorities of the
State " This orgiin of William H. Polk seeks to
persuade the peoplo of Tennessee to condemn the
policy of sending troops into Eist Tennessee for our
defense against threatened invasion to say through
the ballot box that while armies may be encamped all
along the northernborder of West and Middle Tennes
see, none shall be stationed in Eist Tennessee, lest
offence should be given to the sensitive traitors of
that section. That important portion of the State
mmt be left open to the incursions of the enemy,
lest these "brave, generous, and fearless people"
should be forced "to take up arms against the
South." It strikes U3 if they are so brimful of
treason. a3 to be ready to fly to arms against the
Government of their country on the slightest pro
vocation, the necessity is the greater for maintain
ing a sufficient armed force in that quarter to keep
them in subjection. The example of Western Vir
ginia is a sufficient warning of the danger we have
reason to apprehend from them.
We unhesitatingly say that if William H. Polk
agrees with the EuMi.i; if he is opposed to sending
troop3 into Est Tennessee, with the present evi
dences of danger staring us in the face; if he is in
favor of conciliating tho followers of Andy Johnson
by leaving them to prosecute their treasonable
schemes without opposition, ho is uxrrr to be Gov
ernor of Tennesseo, to be entrusted with tha re
sponsible task of protecting tho State from the dan
gers which threaten it. at this critical moment.
We have devoted this amount of space to the
Bulletin's position, simply for the reason that we
deem it of vital importance that tjie next Governor
of Tennesseo, whoever he may be, can be relied up
on to spare no effort nor precaution to protect her
again3t the thickening dangers which threaten her.
especially in tho direction of Eist Tennessee. We
conlcs9 that tho position of the Bulletin, and the sud
den espousal of the cause of Mr. Polk by Brownlow,
the open adherent and champion of the Lincoln
Government, look too much as if there were an ex
press or tacit understanding between them that Mr
i'olk, if elected, is to oppose the policy pursued by
Goernor Harris, and favor the omission of defen- j
sive preparations in Eist Tennessee, which is all
that the Johnson traitors ask, to enable them to
consummate their scheme of an armed rebellion
against the Confederate States, and the inauguration
of civil war in Tennesseo Such an entangling al
liance at thi3 time would be peculiarly unfortunate
and embarrassing to the Governor of Tennessee,
when he should bo prepared to rosist foreign inva
sion and crush out domestic rebellion, without fear
or favor, and with unyielding firmness and severity.
To owe hta election io avowed traitors, in open re
bellion against the Confederate Government, to be
under obligations to the enemies of the State, cou'd
neither add to his firmness in the discharge of his
duty, nor the public confidence in his integrity and
We ca3t no imputations on the patriotism of Mr.
Polk ; but if ho is in favor of the policy indicated by
his organ, wo denounce it, without hesitation, as in
compatible with the public safety. We regret that
Lincoln'3 adherents should at thisi time, be relied cn
to elect a Governor of TcnnsEscc. It seems to us
that the majority of over CO.OOO true men who vo
ted Separation might select a true man for Gover
nor, without the aid of avowed traitors. Gladly
would we co-operate with these deluded men, would
they but ground the weapons of their rebellion, and
stand by the South ;but as long as they continue to
adhoro to Abe Lincoln, we have no faith in them,
and want to keep as clear of them ai possible

counts of tho engagement, telegraphed to the Mo
bile Register and Advertiser, by the correspondent
of that paper who was on the field of battle, is
the most satisfactory we havo yet seen :
RicmioxD, July 22. At 8 o clock on Sunday
morning the enemy commenced opperations at
McLane's Ford, on Bull's Run, by opening their
batteries of rifled cannon and heavy and light
field pieces This was Intended as a mere feint,
to draw our fire and induce us to disturb our
position, if possible. But they failed, as we did
not respond to their invitation to fight the battle
in the way that they selected, in that instance.
Failing in this attempt, the enemy chose their
own position a few miles above Stone Bridge on
Bull Run, and attempted to turn our left flank. Here
the main, principal battle was fought.
At that point the battle raged for four hours, and
the fire on both sides was norcr fought better.
The enemy having largely the advantage in num
bers and artillery, and constantly leading fresh col
umns to the attack, between three and four o'clock
in the afternoon our brave men, exhausted by the
toll of the fray, and much reduced by the casual
ties .of battle, seemed scarcely able to longer con
tinue the conflict, and the result hung in the balance
At this perilous crisis Generals Beauregard and
Johnston heroically threw themselves into the thick
of the fight, and by their words, presence, and ex
ample ot reckless personal daring infused new life
and spirit into the brave soldiery.
Gen. Beauregard covered himself with glory.

unison and accordance.

talion who was killed. He was struck in the fore
head while giving the word of command to his gun
ners. Privates John Payne and Crutcher were
wounded. The artillery had their position within
close range of the Michigan Regiment.
A portion of the 7th and 8th Louisiana Regiments
were in action, but I have been unable up to this
time to ascertain particulars of their losses.
Major Wheat ii very badly wounded and his re
covery is barely possible. His battalion saw hot
work and is badly cut up.
Gen. McDowell is believed to have commando d
the enemy in person, and to hare had sixty thousand
men on the field. Our forces at Stone Bridge is es
timated at thirty-five thousand in alL Our forces
immediately engaged were fifteen thousand.
Gen. Scott is said to have been but a few miles
off" from the fight during the action. ThU is the
statement of persons who were able to know the
fact We know nothing as to where Patterson was.
Tho enemy were totally routed. We have cap
tured thirty pieces of artillery, thirty wagons, a
great quanttty ot provisions and live nundrea pris
oners. Anion? them are Col. Corcoran, who com
manded the New York Fire Zauaves, Col. Wilcox, a
Captain and three privates of the Michigan regi
ment, who surrendered to the 28th Virginia regi
ment of the Confederate army.

As soon as it became pretty evident that the ene

from Richmond to the scene of action, arriving here
about noon, in time to take part in the battle
He immediately assumed command of the centre
Gen. Keauregard commanded the right wing and
Gen. Johnston the left wing, it was against lien
Johnston's command that tho enemy concentrated
his best troops, and lought moit obstinately.
At one time our lelt was pressed so severely that
the issue of the conflict in that direction seemed
doubtful. It was here that General Bartow's Geor
gia Regiment was posted, which was so terribly
cut up. A large body of our troops from the cen
tre were sent at tho critical moment to the assist
ance of Johnston, and this turned the tide of battle.
The en?my broke, and fled before the impetuots
charges of the Southerners, and the battle soon be
came a rout.
THE CATTLE OF P.CLL RT'N INTERESTING INCIDENTS.
Ccrrespoalerre of the Richmond Enquirer.
Maxassas, July 20 The details of the late battle,
or rather'skirmish, for such it was, viewing the
magnitude of the two armies have already Deen
laid before your readers. The few additional facta
which follow, may be a repetition of what is there
fore known; but coming as they do from fresh and
varied sources, additional interest will be lent to
First, of the battle ground. This was upon both
sides of Bull Run a creek perhaps twenty feet
wide, and less than as many inches deep and upon
both sides of the road leading to Ceutreville. Here
the enemy appeared after havinjj paid their respects
to Fairlar, and the other positions from which our
iorcea, by previous arrangement, had fallen back,
and hero they encountered a Virginia brigade, un
der the command of Gen. Longstreet, consisting of
the 1st, 11th and 17th Virginia regiments, two or
three companies of the 7th Louisiana regiment, Col
Hays, and the Washington Artillery of New Orleans.
The South Carolinians and other regiments which
formed the advance division, under Gen. Bonham,
wero located within a short distance of tho scone
ready, if necessary, at a moment's warning to co
operate with the Confederate troops engaged.
The object of tho enemy was undoubtedly to
break our lines, and fight the flanks. To this end
Sherman's battery was brought forward, and at a
distance of a mile and a half opened a heavy but
ineffectual firo expecting doubtless to make a breach
in our ranks, through which their infantry might
enter, and optn a general battle. They wero gal
hntly encountered, however, by the Washington
artillery, with six pieces, and in the course of the
action, notwUhstanalng the enemy had tbirteeen
guns, served by United States regulars, the far
famed Sherman's battery was completely silenced,
and obliged to return. It is said, however, that wo
had the advantage of firing up hill, where nearly
every shot took effect, whereas the shells and balls
of the enemy passed entirely over the heads of our
own artillerists, and buried themselves in a mound
beyond. Under the cover of this Are, McDowell
threw forward his skirmishers, who were soon af
ter followed by the entire attacking column. Thesa
took up their position on the banks of Bull Hun,
and in the adjoining fields. Our own forces were
stationed immediately opposite, the first Virginia
Regiment, Col. Moore, which a portion of the day
sustained the brunt of the attack, lying flat upon
their face3, and firing from the ground. It is
said that at one time they were so close that the
smoke from their muskets enveloped each other
almost from sight, yet strange to say, the wounds
caused resulted mostly from the falling fragments
of shells, and not from muaket balls. The fight did
not become general until about eleven o'clock, and
did not cease till nearly five P. M., when the enemy
finally gave way before vhe combined fire, and fell
back in disorder, leaving the ground strewed with
dead and wounded. They wero thu3 repulsed
twice during the fight, but each time rallied to the
work, and fought with a bravery at whioh msny of
our soldiers were suprised.
Once a small party endeavored to cross the stream,
but these were completely riddled with the excep
tion of one individual who was wounded and taken
pruoner. From him it has since been learned that
a Pennsylvania regiment was almost completely an
nihilated, the artillery mowing great lanes through
the rank at every shot, while the infantry dropped
them with their small arms by acres at every dis
charge. The number of tho enemy killed is variously esti
mated from five hundred to a thousand. One gentle
man informs ma that be counted more than two
hundred bodies within the space of two acres. Cer
tain it is that the enemy under a flag of trnce were
pnirafred the erreater part of vesterdsy in digging
pits and burying them ten and twenty In a bunch. I
A small cart load of caps and felt hats was picked
up on the field since the battle.'soras" of them rid
died with balls and saturated with blood. Such
was the stench of the decaying bodies twenty-four
hours after the battle, that our men in tha neighbor
hood were obliged to go entt and cover them with
earth. The number cf arms taken is said to hate
been five hundred and four, including one piece of
artillery ; but another authority puts the figure as
low as three hundred. This Is exclusive of revolv
ers and side arms.
Among the many incidents related of the affair, is
one of this character, and it fairly illustrates the
military spirit of tho whole army. Connected with
the Seventeenth Virginia Regiment is a little fifteen
year old, named Clarence Carey, of Alexandria. His
poaitionjn the regiment ia that of "marker," and he
was supposed to bo of no more u.ts upon a battle field,
than a brass band in a meeting house. The Colonel
accordingly ordered him to go to the hospital and
remain there until the fight was over. Tho little
fellow had no such insignificant idea of himself,
however, and as soon as th Colonel's back was
turned, off he went for his musket, and was soon
in the fight The result of his marksmanship is
said to "have been ono d:aA Yankee, and one
Another little chap a drummer-boy from Lynch
burg not much more than a yard high, hurried to
the field, as toon after the battle as he could, to get
a gun and revolver, but unfortunately was too late,
and bis only trophy was an odd looking knife, with
a buckhorn handle. He says he examined the
clothing of a dozin or fifteen, to sec if he couldn't
make a "raise," but an emptier set of pockets he
don't believe it possible'to exist The only production
out of the whole number, was a due bill for seven
dollars and a half from one Dutchman to another.
The incident is related also, that durnig the fight
a negro from Lynchburg, named Dick Langhorn,
belonging to one of the officers of a Virginia regi
ment, shot ono of the Yankees in the shoulder,
and knocked down another who was accompanying
him, with his revolver. As they rose from tho
ground, the ebony patriot brought his pistol to bear
upon them a second time, accompanied with the
very philosophical remark: "Berry sorry to hurt
you, massa, but de fac am, dis chile wants to show
you to some ob de gemmen in ole Wirginny. Come
along or dis nigger hurt you ' shush." "Come
along" they did, and the boy bad the proud pleasure
of delivering his prisoners into the hands of the
colonel of his regiment.
From these circumstances you can readily deduce
that our "boys," big and little, black and white are

THE W A II IN MISSOURI.
the Fianr at caethaoe.
From the Tort f alio. Ttati ir.d Herald, Jnlj 12.
Major Potter, sheriff" of this county, returned
from Miesouri last night, direct from Carthage, the
scene of tho late conflict between General Raines
and the St. Louis Dutch. He tells us that the battle
was fought principally with cannon, the Dutch hav
ing eight pieces and the Missourians seven. The
contending parties in the fight ran over, in retreat
ing and changing, about fifteen miles of ground.
They fought all day, and when the Dutch retreated
they kept up firing until 10 o'clock at night. The
Missourians lost eight killed and two mortally
wounded, besides others slightly wounded. The
Dutch lost a large number, most of them being
thrown into wagons and hauled off", and eighteen
found dead on the field, a part of which were found
in a creek In he water.
General McCulloch's and Pearce's command did
not reach the scene of action until the day after tha
fight, and could not pursue the enemy, as the men
and horses were too much judedby forced marches.
If they bad been able to pursue the enemy, the
whole command would have been captured. Capt
Mcintosh, adjutant-general, proposed to take 1,000
men and pursue them, but it was not thought best.
Major Porter speaks in the highest term3 of the
bravery and gallantry of Captain Mcintosh. He
was with him when ho captured the Dutch at Ne
osho. He says that as they entered tho town of
Neosho the women cheered them, by the waving of
handkerchiefs and bonnets. The Dutch were quar
tered in tho court house, and Captain Mcintosh
gave them ten minutes to surrender, and which
they did in nine, marching out of the court house,
kneeling upon one knee, and delivering up their
arms. Captain Mcintosh turned to our troops and
said he hoped the troops would treat tho prisoners
well, for the honor of Arkansas. Then seeing the
old flag flying, he sale it ought to come dowr,
which was no sooner said, than down it came. The
women standing by tore it into shreds. After pick
ing up all the pickets and fellows with soldier
clothes on, there turned out to bo 120 prisoners.
While the matter of surrender was going on, a
fellow on horseback rode up and called for the com
manding officer. Capt Mcintosh told him he was
the man. The fellow said there were eight or nine
wagons loaded with commissary stores, and that he
had better send some men to prstect them, as the
Arkansas troops might capture them. Capt Mcin
tosh took him prisoner, and then ordered Capt Car
roll to take his company and the prisoner, who was
a Miasourian, and if he did not show him the wag
ons in two hours, to bang him. The Missounan
showed the wagons in double quick time.
Mr. Porter says he heard that Captain Sturgess,
with 2,000 men from Kansas, p&ssed within a few
miles of Carthage on his way to Springfield.
Governor Jackson, Generals Price and Raines are
camped within ten miles of Camp Walker, where
they will organize their forces; most or them are
