Commanding Department of the Missouri:
Colonel Ford telegraphs that he has reliable information to the effect that 240 bushwhackers are camped on Fishing River below Liberty. Only about sixty of them have crossed to the south side, but the leaders are on this side for the purpose of consulting Quantrill and Todd, and arranging programme of operations.
