Ul'R FORCES iy SAFE POSITION. SSt. Loci*, Aug. 14 ?The following St a ??rbatxm report of that brought by special messenger to General Fremont: , Karly Saturday morning Gen. Lyon marched out from HDrlnvlfld and mm* tin with th* n?mu , B ?J on Davl* Creek, on Green's prairie, four miles southwest of Springfield, where they had taken a strong position. Gen. Lyon fired the first gun at twenty mtnutes past six o'clock, when the battle Immediately commenced. A severe cannonading was kept up for two or three hours, when the fire of Totten's artillery proving too severe for the enemy, Uiey gradually fell back towards their encampment on Wilson's Creek. Lyons' cavalry on the left tlank, and Siegel'a artillery on the right, then began a terrific attack, which spread slaughter and dismay in the ranks of the rebels, pursuing them to their camp. Shells from Totten's artllery set fire to their tents and baggage wagons, which were all destroyed. A Louisiana and a Mississippi Regiment seemed to suffer most, and where almost annihilated. Sometime in the afternoon, while Gen. Lyon was leading his column, his horse was shot under him. He immediately mounted another, and a* he turned around to hi* men, waving hla*hat and cheering his men on to victory, he was struck In the amall of the back and fell dead to the ground. The command then devolved on Gen. Siegel The pursuit was continued until nightfall, when our little army rested for the night in the enemy's encampment. | Sunday morning General Slegel, fearing the enemy might recover and attempt to cut his command off from Springfield, fell back en that city, where the Home Guards were stationed. Then fearing the great numbers of the enemy might induce them to get between him and Kella, Siegel concluded to fall back on Kolla with his prisoners, train*, and meet reinforcements At the time of the departure of the messenger the enemy had not been neen, and it is probable Selgel has not been disturbed on his march.

Editor Star: The beautiful village of Hampton, v of two thousand Inhabitant*, is in ruins' I saun- tl tered up this morning t? view what 1 had often read of, bat never seen before?a desolated city. * And desolation It is! No other word can convey n the Idea. The '-oldest Inhabitant'' can scarcely l tell where his family mansion once stood. It Is a a field of ruins. 1 could count but five buildings a standing. It is supposed that the low by the j, burning of the city will reach at least one mllllen 0 of dollars, and manv very poor people (it Is said) k are burnt out of "house and home " It is already v said that the burning of the city was the wicked T work of the federal forccs under General Butler and by his order; but the black vandalism rests d in no such quarter. It was the act of General Magrudsr. either on his own responsibility or by order from headquarters at Richmond Gentle- p men now here who fled hither from the scene of c conflagration declare, publicly, that they were t waked up from their sleeping beds and Informed t that only ten minutes would be allowed them to ? escape the ordered destruction. i hear many doleful accounts of the scenes that have transpired, but I have no heart to attempt ft descrl ptlon. But of this be assured, Gen. Butler and the Federal forces had nothing to do with this infamous deed of iniquitous barbarism. When Hampton was evacuated some weeks since by order of Gen. Butler, and In consequence of the withdrawal of a large portion of his command, be had the best opportunity for burning the town, but no drder to that effect was given. On the contrary, the day after the evacuation, when a few disorderly men of the Naval Brigade, without order*, flred a few houses In the city, Gen. Bntler ordered up the Are engines from Old Point to Hampton to assist In the extinguishment of the tlsmes; and but for this timely Intervention of Federal au* thority, th? town might have then been burnt down Justl ce?simple justice?requires this statement, whlr-h 1 derive from actual residents and eye-witnesses In Hampton. . tStl A ' ? * * ? naiever miquuy mere may be In the burning of tbia old Virginia town, it belongs to the Confederate authorities only. There have been, I learn from authority not to be questioned, many Individual outrages by the Federal troops on private property; but the responsibility and high crime of this wanton destruction of a whole town, b long to the Confederate Government, and to it only- To It belongs the duty of disclosing the principle of morals or military ethics on which the vandal act is to be approved. Among those who fled to this post for protection is a Mrs. Laws, a poor widow, who bas a son employed in the Star office, and who has sent down to his mother the sum of sixty-five dollars? a liberal contribution from his hard earnings well worthy a dutiful son.

Oregon, Kansas, and ' other Indian ?nd border wars He entered the Military Academy as cadet in June, 1J-37, and . graduated in 1841. On graduating from the Military Academy he received his commission as lieutenant In the army, and was at once ordered to join the army In Florida, then ojieratlng against " tbe Indians. After uncomplainingly passing through that most disagreeable campaign among ' the everglades of Florida, was stationed for some ? years at various points on our western trontler. Soon after the commencement of hostilities between the United States and Mexico, he was ordered to join the northern line of operations under Genr. Taylor, and after reaching Monterey was soon ordered to join the expedition against Vera Cruz lu the bombardment and capture of Vera ' Cruz, and tbe severely contested battle of Contre- t> ras, Cherubusco and others which wxurred be- * tween that place and the city of Mexico, his activity and millta-y skill found full p'ay. He d took an active part in each and all of them, and I while lighting In the str??tsln thecity of Mexico, * near the Belcn gate, on Sept. 18th, 1847, received 1 a wouud from a musket ball.

With the leatructlve march of the rebel Invaders, a system it horse stealing, robbing, and general outlawry jivvalls Numberless atrocities and excesses are tally committed by the rebel forces, and those In eague and sympathy with them. It is estimated hat four fifths of the horses In possession of the ebel troops, who are generally mounted, were tolen from the counties of Jasper, Barton, Law ence and Newton, the section overrun bv the lnradera. Marauding parties are furnished with a commission to "bunt," a mild term used to cover lp these predatory attacks Horses, mules and wagons are captured wherever found. One of

bese commissions, or ''furloughs to hunt," wak 'ound on the person of a Lieutenant, from Hick>ry counnty. Tb? document was signed by i)e WlttC. Hunter, Colonel. A man named Smith, lately moved in from Kansas, was known to have captured tfi horses, ind marched with them to his home in Jasper county, for bis private use.

Krequent robberies of stores have been committed Large iiiantitics of grain have been taken, afid all the louring mills have been pressed to perform a share n the "grinding" exactions. This system of plunder is but a small part of the iggravations which atilict the inhabitants in the eglon indicated. Their fears are excited by ovlng bands of Indians, who, it .? confidently jelieved. accompany th? rebel horde The Julians belong to the Cherokee and Creek tribes, ind are mostly half-b'eeds. with fares of htdeous ispect It is averred on good authority that a Cherokee named Fry has a commission In bis leer skin pouch ensuring him a reward of 960 or the scalp usually worn by Dr Stetnmer, of lasper county The names of other loyal c'tiz^ns ire mentioned, whose scalps are in good demand, it a paying figure.
