Major-General ROSECRANS,

Commanding Department of the Missouri:

Prisoners that left Price's army late Sunday night say that he was within six miles of the Indian Nation, near Maysville, moving southwest with the main army, and that many regiments and brigades had moved off east, and that the rebel army had been more and more demoralized. I am sending out a reconnaissance to the Indian Nation to strike and follow Price's trail, and get his movements. Harrison represents the enemy strong about Fayetteville.

The general commanding is informed that you are calling out militia-men. He directs me to say that it is too late now to call them out, but in case it is necessary General Fisk will order it.
