The following is a vort>al report taken
from the special messenger who brought tlie
dispatches to Geu. Fremont:
Karlv on Saturday morning General Lyon
marched out of Springfield to give the ene
my battle. lie came up to him on Davis’
Creek, in Green Prarie, a few miles South
west of Springfield, where lie had taken a
strong position on rolling ground. At
twenty minutes pa B t six o’clock in the mor
ning Geu. Lyon, fired his first gun, when
the battle immmdiatelv began. Some can
nonading was kept up for two or three hours,
when the tire of Capt. Totten’s artillery
proving too severe for the enemy, they grad
ually fell hick toward their encampment on
\\ ilson’s (’reek. Genttarl Lyon’s cavalry,
posted on the enemy’s left flank, and Gen.
Seigel’s artillery on the right, then began a
terriffic attack, and spread slaughter and
dismay in the ranks of the enemy, pursuing
them to their camp, the shells from Totten's
artillery setting tire to their tents and bag
gage waggons, which were all destroyed.—
Louisiana aud Mississippi regiments seemed
to have suffered most in the fight, and were
Some time in the afternoon, as Gen. Lyon
was leadiug on his column, ltis horse was
shot under him. lie immediately mounted
another, and as he turned round to his men,
waving his hat in his hand and cheeriug
them on to victory, he was struck in the
small of the back by a ball and fell dead to
the ground. The command then devolved
upon Gen. Scigel.
The pursuit continued until nightfall,
when our little army rested for the night iu
the encampment of the enemy.
On Sunday morning Gen. Scigel fearing
the enemy might recover, and attempt to cut
his com maud off from Springfield, fell back
upon the city, where the Home Guards
Reaching Springfield and fearing the great
numbers of the enemy might induce them
to get between him aud llolla, Gen. Siegel
concluded to fall back on Holla with his
provision trains and meet the reinforcements
which wore on their way to him.
Ninety of the rebels were captured, among
whom was a Colonel of distinction, the
in esse tnger not remembering his name.

ACCOUNTS FROM ROLLA.
Holla, Mo., Aug. 13.—The following
additional account of the battle near Spring
field is furnished by an eye-witness, who left
Springfield Sunday morning and came
through to this place on horse back.
Our army marched out of Springfield on
Friday evening only 5,000 strong, the Home
Guards remaining in Springfield. Our forced
slept on the prarie a portion of the night,
and about sunrise on Saturday morning
drove in the outposts of the enemy, and
soon afterwards the engagement became
The attack was made in two columns
under Lyon and Sturgcs, Gen. Seigel lead
ing a flanking force of about, a thousand
men ami four guns on the South of the ene
The light raged from sunrise in the morn
ing till one or two o’clock in the afternoon.
The Rebels in overwhelming numbers
charged Capt. Totten’s battery three sever
al times, but weie repulsed with great
Gen. Lyon fell early in the day. lie had
been previously wounded in the leg, and had
a horse shot under him. The Colonel of
one of the Kansas regiments having become
disabled, the boys cried out, “General you
come and lead us.” He did so; and at
once putting himself in front and while
cheering tlie men on to the charge, received
a bullet in the left breast, and fell from his
horse. He was asked if he tvas hurt, and
replied, ‘‘no, not much,” and in a few mo
ments expired wi hout a struggle.
Gen. Seigle had a very severe struggle
and lost three of his guns. His artillery
horses were shot in their harness, and the
pieces disabled. He endeavored to haul
them off with a number of prisoners he had
taken, but was finally compelled to abandon
them, first however, spiking the guns and
About 1 o’clock in the day the enemy
seemed to be in great disorder and retrea
ting. They set fire to their train of bag
gage wagons. Our forces were too much
fatigued aud cut up to pursue, and the bat
tle may be considered a draw one
The Ist Kansas, Ist Missouri and Ist lowa
regiments suffered the most. Gen. Price
was not killed. There were rumors on the
field that McCullough was killed, but the
rebels denied it.
On Saturday night Dr. Mencher and oth
ers of our army went back with ambulances
to the battle field, to Springfield, to see
about the killed and wounded. They found
the enemy on the field and were consider
Gen. Lyon’s body was treated with great
respect, and was brought back with some of
the wounded to Springfield.
Maj. Sturgis took command in the battle
field after the d< at'i <fG< n Lyon and Ce l.
Seigel took command after the battle.
Our loss is variously estimated at from
150 to 300 killed and several hundred woun
ded. The enemy’s loss is placed at 2,000
killed and wounded. Our boys captured
about 100 horses. One of the enemy’s regi
ments carried two flags, the Confederate and
the stars and stripes.
Gen. Seigel inarched back to Springfield
iu good order. After perfecting his arrange
ments gathering the baggage, blowing up
what powder he could not carry and destroy
ing other property which he did not wish
should fall into the hands of the enemy, he
left Springfield, and on Sunday night en
camped thirty-one miles this side of that
place, the enemy not pursuing.
The only hostility observed during the day
was the firing of a musket from a distance
at the vanguard. Gen. Seigle was confi
dent he could have held Springfield against
the force t':ey had engaged, but he was fear
ful of reinforcements to the enemy from the
Southwest, and that Lis line of communica
tion to llolla would be cut off.
Gen. Lyon bjguu the attack upon the
receipt of intelligence that the enemy were
expecting reinforcements from Hardee’s
column, which was approaching from the
A portion of the enemy’s artillery was
admirably served. Their infantry was also
i” very severe.
The Springfield Home Guards mere not
in the fight. They, with large numbers of
the citizens of Springfield, are in SeigelV
camp. It was thought that Seigel would
fall back no further than Lebanon, whtrj
reinforcements would meet him.

county, Tenn ,in 18] 4. His father Alex
ander McCulloch, was aid-divamp to Gen.
Coffee, and fought under Gen Jackson at
the battles of Talladega, Tallahassee and
Horseshoe during the Creek war. llis fath
er emigrated to Georgia when Hen. was very
young, and Hen was kept at school in Ten
nessee until he was 14 years old. After
this Hen was kept hunting until he was near
*2l. At that time the bears were so bad in
Tennessee that the settlers could not raise
their hogs. Hunting bears in the cane re
quired much caution, and if a man’s gun
snapped he lost his breakfast. Young Mc-
Culloch frequently killed as many as 80
bears in a season, aud never less than 20 in
the course of the winter. This life gave
him a taste for wild adventure and when he
became of age'he determined to goon an expe
dition ti the Ilocky Mountains, and left Lis
home for St. Louis to join a company of
trappers. He arrived too late, however, and
likewise failed in joining a company of Santa
II e returned home, and soon after called
on C<>l. David Crockett, who was making
up an expedition to goto Texas, to take pait
iu the revolution. The whole Southwest at
that time was alive with feelings of sympa
thy for the Texans, and men were daily
flocking to their standard. Nacogdoches
was appointed the place of rendezvous from
which the expedition was to start, aud Christ
mas of the year 1835 was named for the
•lay of meeting, when, as “Old Davy” ex
pressed it, they were to make their Christ
mas dinner off the hump of a buffalo. Mc-
Culloch again arrived too late, and finding
the party gone, he proceeded on by himself
to the river Hrazos, where he was taken sick,
and lie did not recover until after the fall of
the Alamo. McCulloch’s disappointment
was very great at not being able to join the
gallant band of patriots, but it afterwards
proved very fortunate for him, for Colonel
Travis, after having sustained a siege of thir
teen days, with only 186 Texans against !
Santa Anna’s army, fell with his brave lit- i
tie band, after having killed 900 of the cue- !
McCulloch, on joining the Texan army
under Geu. Sam Houston, was assigned to
the artillery, and made captain of a gun. —
He served gallantly at the battle of San
Jacinto, where Santa Anna was taken pris
oner, and his army of 1500 men killed ov
taken prisoners. McCulloch afterwards set
tle 1 in Gonzales county, Texas, and was em
ployed on the frontier surveying and loca
ting lands. He frequently led the wild bor
der scouts against tiie Indians and Mexi
cans, which service he entered before the
celebrated Jack Hays. He also distinguish
ed himself at the battle of Plum Creek in
a light with the Indians, who at the time
burned and sacked the town of Liunuille.
He joined the expedition against Mier, but,
not agreeing with the plans of the leaders,
he returned home before the light, and es
caped the cruel hardships aud imprisonment
ot the command, which had surrendered to
\\ hen the war broke out with Mexico,
he rallied a baud of Texan warriors on the
batiks of the Guadalupe, and set out for the
seat of war on the Rio Grande. The com
pany arrived four days after the battles of
Palo Alto aud the Hesaca. llis company
was accepted by Gen. Taylor, and he was
afterwards employed in the daring scouting
expedition towards Monterey, in which bat
tle, as well as that of Ruena Vista, he won
imperishable renown. He afterwards joined
Gen. Scott’s army, und continued with it to
the conquest of the City of Mexico. For
his gallant service he was honored with a
national reputation, and the office of United
States Marshal of Texas was given him by
President Pierce. When Mr. Buchanan
decided to send an army to put down rebel
lion in Utah, Gen. McCulloch was appoin
ted one of the Peace Commissioners to Salt
Lake, and served the Government most ac
ceptably in that capacity.
General McCulloch was married three or
four years since, and a characteristic story
is told of him when his first child, a boy,
was born, that he insisted, to the great hor
ror of his young wife, in having the young
ster christened “Buffalo Hump,” in honor
of a particular friend, an old Indian chief of
that unique name.
The General is a thin, spare man, of great
muscle and activity, und is now about forty
seven years of age. He has a pleasant face,
and is mild and courteous in his manners,
with an air of diffidence. He is very cool
and of determined bravery.

The stock of Bacon is light, and with a
good consumptive as well as export demand,
the market is very firm. We quote as fol
lows : Shoulders 12J to 13Jc, Hams 14}
to 15*c, and Sides 16 to 18c per lb., tlie out
side figures being for small or retail lots.—
Lard may be quoted at 12} to 15e per lb.,
in barrels and kegs. In a conversation to
day with one of our most experienced busi
ness men, he advanced the idea that we
should run short of Provisions during the
next nine months, and that prices would in
evitably rule high. He thinks the crop of
Hogs in the Southern States is not sufficient
tlie present year to meet the wants of our
people. This is probably true, but the evil
may be greatly mitigated by farmers taking
the matter in hand at once. Fortunately
for us, our A\ heat and Corn crops are finer
this season than they have been for many
years. The \\ heat, already harvested, is
ample for every man, woman and child in

ises to be the most abundant ever known.—
There is enough growing now in the Confed
erate States to make a sufficiency of meat for
our own consumption, if we only had the
Hogs. A pig taken iu baud now and prop
erly ted, will make good bacon by February.
The regular stock hogs, by the same feeding
begun at once, will double the usual average
of pounds in December. The abundance of
Corn will enable farmers to adopt this system
immediately. The subject is too important
to be neglected. Without meat, we cannot

Dear Pat :—I wrote you a few lines last
week, which a gentleman either posted or
took on with him, as he resides near Augusta.
11 know yoti was surprised to hear that i was
in Richmond, wounded ; but if we had got
our rights I would have been in New York
the day the battle was fought, our term of
service having expired the day before ; but
old Abe or Scott would not let the regiment
go home. Well it served us right, when we
! were fools enough to fight in such a cause ;
i but I hope the time will come when Irish-
I men will mind their own business.
Early in the fight I got a ball in the thigh,
which broke the bone. 1 lay on the field
35 hours, a rain falling most of the time,
and might have lain there were since if it was
not for the kindness of the Southerers—ene
mies I cannot call them, for they have treat
ed us more like brothers than any thing else.
L got a hard shaking on the railroad; but now,
thank God 1 Tam very comfortable here. I
expect to have my leg set to-day. If it is, 1
hope to recover soon, when I will be a much
Owing to the great number of wouuded, I
could not be attended sooner; besides, the
doctor was afraid of mortification; but I
think L am now safe, and that, with God’s
help, l will have the use of my leg.
Dear Pat, you could not believe the way
our soldiers were treated by Scott. There
were eight regiments on the field whose time
was up but could not git home. Hut, worse
than all, they left the dead and wounded on
the field, and never sent the flag of truce in
to know how or what would become of us.
It is Colonel Corcoran 1 blame for keeping
us. lie is now a prisoner here. Many is
the heavy curse lie got from wouuded and
dying men. 1 wish you could send a letter
to my wife; poor creature. Probably she
thinks me dead. She lives at 212 West 26th
street. Direct, care of Thos, Kiernan.—
Tell her that I am well treated—get meat
three times a day, and splendid soup at din
1 remain, dear Pat,

can, through your paper, know where wo

Capitol Building in Washington ever since
the battle of Hull Run—some few of us
taken on Picket Guard aud in skirmishes
two days before. There are sixty four in

of being exchanged soon. We have, with
few exceptions, been treated kindly, al
though we have been annoyed some by
mobs of soldiers, negroes and boys ; but the
city is now quiet, and none perhaps will be
troubled again. We have been assured by
Gen. Mansfield that we shall be treated as

first suspected, which assurance we very

The Richmond correspondent of the .Sa
vannah Republican says :
You will regret to bear that there is a
great, deal of sickness among our troops.—
The prevailing diseases are measels and ty
phoid fever. There is reason to believe that
our field officers are not as careful of tlie
health of their commands as they should be.
The camps are not kept clean and whole
some ; nor is the soldier required to give that
attention to diet and personal cleanliness
which is essential to good health. If proper
sanitary regulations were adopted, and offi
cers of every grade required to see to their
enforcement, the sick list might he perma
nently reduced far below the present figures.

An esteemed and worthy friend, who has
taken but little part in politics, over tho
signature of “Countryman/’ urges the claims
ot this excellent Christian gentlemen for
the office of Governor, if the people of his
section of the State will promptly run up tho
name of Col. Chambers, and the press of
Columbus will urge his claims, we see no
reason why he should not be elected. It is
time the Agricultural and rudustrial classes
should be represented in the State Execu
tive, and in Mr. C. they would have a rep
resentative of whom they might well bo
proud, w hilst education and religion would
tind him an enlightened and warm friend
and supporter. Who will move in this mat*

We heartily second the motion. In Col.
Chambers we would have a Governor ob
jectionable to no party, class or locality—a
man above the little tricks of demagogues,
and whose action could be influenced bv no
sense of obligation t,o particular men or or
ganizations. It is time/we think, to compel
those who have made politiesa business or pro
fession to staud aside until parties are again
formed. While we have men who, like Col.
Chambers, are not indentified with past bitter
party contests, and who are, like him, in
every way worthy and quaiitied, the people
can have no difficulty in choosing a Chief
Executive whose election would go far to
wards keeping down party divisions. It was
with an object such as this in view that wo
heretofore suggested the names of Judge
Worrill and Comptroller Thweatt, and it is
in the same spirit that we now express our
hearty concurrence in the motion to run Col.
Chambers as a man fit for the station , with
out regard to the intervention or dictation,
of any clique oreaucus.— Columbus Eng.

A planter informs us that not only tho
squares and blooms, but many young bolls,
are falling from the cotton plant. The ex
traordinary rains thatjhave fallen during tho
last two weeks have certainly greatly curtailed
the amount of cotton that would otherwise
have been gathered in September, anil pro

Another loss—and a very considerable
one —is that of the fodder crop. The rainy
season caught most farmers pulling their
fodder, and lasted so long that those who
had not pulled cannot now gather good pro
vender. The scarcity of both corn and fod
der the present year has compelled farmers
to use most of tbeir oats and other early pro
vender, and the loss of the fodder now can
not be to any extent supplied, as heretofore,
by Northern and Western bay. A triend
suggests as a partial remedy, that every plan
ter save plenty of millet seed and plant it
next spring for early feed. When only a
few iuches it can be cut, and will continue
to grow fast and luxurantly though cut at
intervals throughout the season. We would
add to this a suggestion heretofore made,
that, every farmer save the crabgrass this
fall. It is already grow ing very fast since the
ruins, and will be abundant and luxuriant.
A gentleman who fed with it last year in
forms us that he prefers it to fodder or
Northern hay as food tor horses, and its ex
cellence as provender for cattle is attested
by many. There will certainly be enough
to make up four-fold for the loss of fodder,
and it can be gathered by those capable of
doing but little other service in the lield than
the gathering of grass or cotton. — Columbus
