A Lot of Rebel Officers Bagged by Capt. Stubbs

SEDALIA, Mo., Feb. 19. – Brig. Gen. Price, son of Sterling Price, Col. Phillips, Major Cross and captain Crosby were captured near Warsaw on Sunday night and brought to this place.  These prisoners were captured by Capt. Stubbs of the 8th Iowa.  They had some five hundred recruits for Price in charge who had just crossed the Osage river, but as Capt. Stubbs has but a small force he did not follow them.
