JcmcitfON City, Oct. 8,1881. The following is a special despatch to the St. Louis DemoiTiU:? ? Dr. White, of Colonel Mulligan's brigade, arrived bore in the Be lalla train at an early hour tliis morning, and brings information from Lexington up to Munday night. General Price hod left Lexington with the main body of h s force, and is moving southward fur the purpose of ?fleeting a Junction with Don McCulloch, after which he will give General Fremont battle. Dr. Whito represents that General 1'rioc is decided up >n this point, having beeu elated and Intoxicated by his victory at Lexington. He says that General Price anticipates on easy victory over General Fremont ot this point, and will then move on to St. L>uis. There wore no less than 24,000 rebels ready to rise and welc me him with arms in tholr hands. Dr. White thinks that the rebel.- will endeavor to get between us and the forces at Georgetown, and surround and cut off General Davis and General Siogel, and then meet General Fremont near this place. The rebel forco has nineteen Held pieces and are cxpectlng rifled cannon from tho Kouth. Genera) Price told the Itector that the Southern confede racy had loaned tho State of Missouri $1,(100,000 for the purpose of carrying on tho war sgaii.Bt tho federal go vernment. Tho robel troops are confident of victory, and are cla moring to be led against General Freuunt. Dr. White gives a sorry statement In regard to the con duct of tho rebels towards the wounded at Lexington. They took away from him all bis hospital a tores, not leav ing him even a sponge. A portion of Qtcoral Price's forec had moved towards Independence. V There were but about 800 meu in Warrensburg wlion tho doctor j.a*eed through there. Ho thinks Price's force numbers fully 40.000. Itr. White says he heard on hl? way here that 18,000 rebels had parted from Uie main body aud ma! chert to wards Georgetown, with tho intention n' taking that place beforo reinforcements could reach thorn from Jkf forson city. A miller who loft Georgetown yesterday morning says that ho w.'is turned b;tck by tha enemy's pickets twelve miles from that town. Th" doctor believes that tlK) rebels havo no idoa of quitting the State, but intend to mako a demonstration in vast numbers upon Georgetown, JelTi rson ( Ky and St. Lou if, and that they arc perfectly confident of their abili ty to take them. No immediate attack IB foarcd at Georgetown, and our forces there are preparing to recoive the foe. An ofllcer hero, formerly of Colonel Mulligan's Irish brlf :tde, who left the vicinity of Lexington on Monday evening, places no confidence in tho truth of tho ahovo. This officer pays at tho time ho left cot more than ten thousand rebols hadquittod Lexington, and that nothing reliable was known of their intentions or course, or what policy they had concluded to pursue. Booneville and Glasgow wero quiet at (lie Inst advicos, b :t our forces are on the aldrt for a fl^ht. Many persona think that there will be no general tngngem nt, since tho reported evacuation of Lexington, but others beliove ho will very soon strike a blow In somo quarter where he is least expcctcd, and the prospect of a buttle la rather in creased than diminished.
