A brilliant Exploit.--Lieutenant-Colonel Woodson, of the Third Kentucky cavalry, with a detachment of eighty Texas Rangers, attacked the enemy near the point where the Decatur and Nashville Railroad crosses Elk River, on the ninth of May, killing several and capturing two captains, two lieutenants, forty-three non-commissioned officers and privates, and eight negroes. Confederate loss, four killed, including Capt. Harris of the Rangers, and seven wounded.--Missouri Army Argus, May 13.
service. Captain De Kay, while supper was being prepared, mounted his horse and determined to explore the country, followed only by his negro servant. As he was passing a swamp toward evening, he came suddenly upon seven of the secession troops, who were lurking by the roadside, and were armed with double-barrelled guns. The Captain turned and shouted to his (imaginary) company to prepare to charge, and then riding forward rapidly, revolver in hand, told the men they were his prisoners, as his cavalry would soon be upon them, ordered them to discharge their pieces and deliver them to him, which they did without delay. He then informed them that his only company was his negro servant, and directed them to follow him into camp. An hour later, just after Gen. Wool had returned from Norfolk, the Captain rode to the beach and informed Col. Cram, as chief of the General's staff, that the seven prisoners, whom he had marched to the beach, were at his disposal.--New-York Times, May 13.
