THE SPRDfQFIELD 1ATTLB. Gallant jCoofltict af Xanaap Voluateers. We find. in the Daily Tmea of Aug-ust 22d. a letter containing a most graphio description of the bard-fought battle near Springfield, Mo., from which we -aake the following extracts, which will be read with intense interest by the people of Jeffersoa County .t Eds. Ibdukvdest. "In the meantime the Kansas 1st had been called out. fought nobly ana reurea win. creuu, iuug position near tolten's Battery "At last the order came for the Kansas 2d to move to the front. In an instant every man was on his feet, ready to march. The spell wasbroken.and all that was' thought of, was the work before them. Col. Mitchell took his position at' the bead of our little band only about four Jiuadred and up the hill ire moved, passing the Kansas 1st, and several" othar regiments who had fallen back to rest. As we filed up the 'steep ascent, we passed numbers of met who had '"fought their last battle' and were sleeping their. last sleep; and near iho, battery. I saw large pools of blood. St'iil the column moved on firmly, until the summit of the litll was reached. Company-B. Ciptain McClure was w,itk lis. havinir. been detached as .fckirajujhers, under command of -Jtajorl .1.4. .Bmit of that hill, and belore we had formed in line of battle, the t front came upon a large body of Uie enemy, said to have been Cherokee Indiahs rho we're concealed ia the' grass and bmthit tWkea. within about .thirty yards oCthetf.jllieoDepupon us a most ferrific and .destructive fire. It 1'-j --.'ir'il.'A ni5fi Imp alvitit three seemeu aa .. . ".-i-tt- - hundred yards, was fringed with a per- 4eclM ' aB4iaaaoe, ana ne j vullsjU rt)ttla(rp-,Bf, aB-, inroBgu our ranks, like hail. Captain ThoTeh's company delivered their fire, 'and broke into confusion, falling back .upon .Capt. Russell's comoanv. Of course our ranks were somewhat broken, 'bat 'the "Union Guards,' true to "the pledge uiauc-meir ineoas, stooa meir-grounu, discharging their pieces, right.inia the, faces of the; enemy, and only fell, luck into line when ordered bv their Caotaiu: The whole regiment whs formed,' into' line of battle, about twenty yards, back of where company K received the Urst are aoii-jn amomeat.ortwo'wit' were pouring back into the ranks of the.en-emy, who still remained under cover, a most destructive fire of musketry. Alter out Jine had been formed, we stood to our places, aa firm as rocks, every, man feeling it his duty to load and fire as fast as ho could. For about twenty minutes an incessant fire was kept up on both sides, then at last the enemy broke, and the field was left 10 us, with tho exception of an occasional straggler, who, more bold than, the rest, had remained to give lis a parting salute; but as soon as their heads pop-, pod, above the brush,- a well directed ball from some of the boys, would settle them forever. Soon as the fire had ceased, two men came riding up to our reer. One inquired of Capt. Russell if he could pass down our rear. - The Captain suspecting bimio be a Secessionist, ordered him to halt, but instead of halting he put spurs to his horse and tried to escape. The Captain immediately drew his revolver and fired, the shot taking effect bufnot fatally. He immediately fired, again, together with three others with muskets, when both horse and rider fell mortally wounded. Lieut. R. Newell went up to him, found him nearly dead, and removed from his person a fine revolver and sabre.. He stated that he was an officer in the secession army. "In this charge we met, with our heaviest loss, and here it was, immediately, in the rear of Company G, that Gen. Lyon fell dead, .the ball entering near his heart. A moment before h? fell I was by the side of his horse, then falling into line I heard him cheer the boys on in his own clear, calm voice. The next moment I heard that he was killed. His body was carried from the field to the ambulance by Liout. Shryer of Co. K., A. Kepler and Ed. Spnrlock, of Co. G, Kana 2d, anJ not by his Aids, as slated by a correspondent of the Missouri Democrat. At the time he fell none of his Aids were near him; and as the Iowa 1st was some distance down the hill at the time, it is not possible that, he could have been lending thtm on lo a charge, as staled iu the Democrat., Oa the death of General Lyon, the command of onr forces fell upon Major Sturgis, who soon after ordered a retreat. The Kansas 2d was the last regiment to leave the field, and the only regiment that left with all the companies .present.' and in perfect order. We left slowly followed by Uie ortillery, and soon were off the field. As we were leaving, a shell thrown by the enemy fell and bunt near us, killing our Third Lieutenant, Robert Newell; from Oskalooa. He was struck on Iho bank of the bead, and killed instantly. He was a young man of sterling worth, and as (rue a heart as fought on the field. During the whole time he .was at his post, ccol and. firm. His loss is keenly felt by us all. t "I cannot call this a defeat. .Long before our tegiment loft the field, the enemy had commenced retreating and burning their trains. This 1 saw with my own eyes. Had Gen. Lyon lived. I think we would have held the field. That, they did not follow us,' looks as though they had been handled rather roughly, and were willing to quit. "I do not wish to rob nny regiment or company of their hard earned honors, but it is conceded by all hands that the Kansas 2nd, made the bravest.stnnd and best fight of sny of the troops on the field. Ceitain it is that we were ordered, to the most dangerous position, and held it for over two hours against fearful odds. They have a proud reputation among all the officers, Regulars and Volunteers, and they deserve il. "I would like to speak'of' the" Kansas 1st ib detail, but have not the' time. AH honor is due them for their noble and gallant bearing." Advanture of a, Spy. I have lately returned from the South, but my exact whereabouts in that re gion, for obvious reasons, it would not be polite to state. Suspecled of 'beiag aiNortbener; ifwas often to my advaa-tage to court1 obscurity. Known as a spy, a "short shrift" and ready rope would have prevented the blotting of this paper.

AS to-tke.hdHor.letthVcoaatrv "that benefits- by thelnyewiga'tioBf'ind j warnings of the spy Wjiidgd;1 and' the 1 danger; often' incurred, is more- serious arid personal than' that of. the battle' field? which may, perhaps, detract from its desirability. ' It was a dark night. Not a' star' on the glimmer. " I had collected ray quo tum of intelligence and was' on the' move for the Northern lino. I was approaching the bank of a stream whose water I bad to cross.and had then-some miles to traverse before I could reaclr the pickets of our gallant troops. A feeling of uneasiness began to creep over me; I was on the outskirt of a wood fringing the dark waters at my feet, whose presence-could scarcely be detected ibut for their sullen, murmurs as they rushed through; the gloom. The wind sighed in gentle accordance. I walked forty or fifty yards along the bank . I then crept on all fours along the ground and groped with my bands ' I paused I groped, again ray .breath thickened, perspiration, oozed from, me at every pore, and I was prostrated. with horror ! I had -missed my landmark and knew not where I was. Below or above, beneath, tho shelter of the bank lay the skiff I had hidden, ten 'days' before, when I commenced operations among the followers of Jeff- Davis. As I stood-gasping for breath with all the ut.mistakAblo proofs of my calling about me, the sudden cry of a bird or plunging' of a fish would act like magnetism on my frame, not wont to shudder at a shadow. No matter how pressing the danger may be, if a man sees an opening for escape he 'breathes with freedom. But let him be sur rounded by darkness, impenetrable at two yards distance, within rifle's length of concealed foes, for what knowledge he has to the contrary ; knowing, too. with painful accuracy, the detection of his presence would reward him'witb a sudden and violent death, and if he. breathes no faster and feels lits limbs as 'free and his spirit as light Ss when inking a favorite promenade.he is more fitted for a hero than I am. In the agony of tliat.momeritT-in the sudden nnd utter helplessness 1 felt to discover my true bearings I was' about (b let myself gently into' the streaih and breast its current, for life and death. There was no alternative. The Northern pickets must be reached in safety before the morning brokc.or I' should soon swing between heaven 'and earth from .ome limb of the black forest in which r stood. At that moment the low,' sullen bay of a blood hound struck my ear. ' The sound was revivng, the fearful stillness broken. The uncertain dred fled be fore the certain danger. I was stand ing to; my .middle in the sliallow bed of of the river, just beneath the jutting banks. After the pause of a few seconds I began to creep, mechanically and stealthily, down the stream.follow-ed, as I knew from the rustling of the grass and frequent breaking of twigs, by the insatiable brute jallhough, by certain uneasy growls, I felt assuredihe was at fault. Something struck agaiqsL my breast, icouia not prevent a.siigiu cry from escaping stretching out my hands I grasped the .gunwale of. a boat moored1 beneath' the bank. Between surprise and joy I felt half chek;-dJ Ai AlusWt pfyi Jrambled'on board..and .begansearching for .the I painter, in lheAbpw,in order to cast, her from her fastenings., u 1 Suddenly a bright ray of moonlight the.first gleam of hope ialbatjblack night! feUdi rectlyiOB;lJie,spot,revea!-iog the silvery stream, ,my own, skiff. ,(h)dden there -ten dnys; bofore.) light ing the deep shadows of the verging wood, and on the log haf .buried iu the sand, and from whichl had, that.tnstant cast the line, that had bound me to jt, the' supple, form of a crouching blood hound, his. red eyes, gleaming jn theL moonlight, jaws distended and poising for a spring.
