Sarcoxie. Gen. Ben McCulloch, arriving at this juncture from his camp at Elm Springs, Ark., with 3,000 Confederate enlisted men, and Gen. N. Bart Pearce from Osage Mills with a brigade of State troops, they united with Price at Carthage. On the 7th, the combined forces took up the line of march to Cowskin prairie. Colonel Sigel had not been prepared for the strength of resistance there was in the Missouri men who fought him at Carthage. Mein Gott! he said, was ever such thing seen! Green les north of the northern boundary of Arkansas, in Barry county, Mo. Maj. J. M. Schofield, of the First Missouri regiment, in his report as acting adjutant-general of the Federal army, said that General Lyon determined to make a night march on the 7th, with his entire force, toward Cassville, direct upon the front of the Confederate position, a day sooner, but was dissuaded from it on account of the exhausted condition of a large number of his troops. That day, and until the evening of the ne
uthward, confronted by Price's men. Taking Springfield, after a skirmish on February 12th, and fighting at Crane creek on the 14th, and near Flat creek on the 15th, Curtis met a more stubborn resistance by Price's men at Sugar creek, Ark., on the 7th. Sustaining considerable loss, he encamped on the battleground, waiting for Sigel, who was a few miles behind, to reinforce him. While the Confederates under Price were camped at Cross Hollows, a cavalry force of Federals under General Asboth, onock up the approaches on his left and rear, proved formidable obstacles to cut away for the passage of the Confederate artillery and ordnance wagons, and the flanking column did not reach the ridge in the enemy's rear until 10 o'clock a. m. of the 7th. Its march had not been molested and it took the desired position unopposed. The roar of artillery and rattle of small arms came from the distant front and center as this line of attack was formed in the rear of the carefully-established lines o
pt from capture. The following is an interesting acknowledgment of trophies: Headquarters Trans-Mississippi Department, Little Rock, Ark., December 24, 1862. Maj.-Gen. T. C. Hindman, Comdg. First Corps, Trans-Mississippi Army, in the field: General: I have the pleasure of acknowledging receipt, at the hands of Lieutenant Hammett, acting assistant adjutant-general of your corps, of the three stand of colors captured by your army from the enemy at Prairie Grove church on the 7th inst. I am, General, very respectfully, your most obedient servant, S. S. Anderson, Asst. Adjt.-Gen. The victorious general paid to the officers who had participated in the engagement, the following official approval and special commendation to promotions: Generals Frost, Shoup and Marmaduke, commanding divisions; Generals Roane, Fagan, Parsons and McRae, and Colonels Shaver and Shelby, commanding brigades, did their duty nobly. I strongly commend them to the lieutenant-general comm
Col. Dan W. Jones' State troops and Harrell's battalion captured several guidons of the enemy, and held him in check from time to time, crossing the open prairie under his fire without a casualty. The command of Marmaduke was now drawn up on the south edge of Prairie D'Ane, where he was reinforced by Colonel Gano with 400 men (Indians) and Lawther's regiment. Shelby had returned to the front and was camped in the prairie on the Camden road, south side of the river, to rest his men. On the 7th the enemy advanced again, opposed by a part of Burbridge's regiment, under Captain Porter, which did not cross the prairie. General Price arrived at the front with Dockery's-and Crawford's brigades and Wood's battalion, and took command. Gano was now up with his brigade, about 500 men. Cabell's brigade was transferred to Fagan's division. On the 8th the enemy advanced, but did not drive Marmaduke's command out of the timber on the northeast of the prairie. Greene's regiment was relieved f
ball and he was disabled. In an afternoon charge the brigade encountered the murderous fire of a concealed battery, and there LieutenantCol-onel Dean fell. On the 7th, Colonel Shaver was rendered senseless by the explosion of a shell in the midst of a fierce melee. Lieutenant-Colonel Patton, Seventh regiment, was severely wounde Twelfth regiment was moved to Island No.10, where Colonel Cook was put in command by General Mackall, who moved with the remaining infantry to Madrid bend. On the 7th, finding his little rain-drenched force ineffectual to hold the position, Cook evacuated the island, and retreated through the overflowed swamps to Reelfoot lake, wl, however, managed to win the race to Louisville. General Hardee, with his command at Perryville, on October 7th, observed the enemy massing against him. On the 7th, Liddell's Arkansas brigade was in advance of Hardee, supporting the cavalry of Wheeler, who was drawing the shells of the enemy, many of which fell in Liddell's li
