s, we galloped forward at once to the assistance of our brave comrade, whom we succeeded in rescuing from his pursuers, but in a state of such utter exhaustion that we had to lift him to the back of one of the led horses that chanced to be on the spot. After a short but spirited resistance we were again compelled to retire, turning round and showing fight wherever the nature of the ground would admit of it, until late in the afternoon we took a new position near the large estate of Colonel Dulaney, which was of some strategical importance. Preparing for a more serious opposition to the movements of the enemy, Stuart and myself had halted on an eminence which afforded an extensive view of the surrounding country, when a squadron of Federal cavalry, which came trotting along over an open field in beautiful lines as if on parade, and which seemed quite disdainful of the opposing host, attracted our attention. Stuart turned to me, and said, Major, pray amuse yourself with giving th
ttle delay as practicable, repair to North Alabama and Middle Tennessee and assume command of the cavalry regiments in that section, commanded respectively by Colonels Scott, Wharton, and Adams. You will carry into effect the verbal instructions communicated to you by the general commanding. I am, colonel, very respectfully, your obedient servant, George Wm. Brent, Acting Chief of Staff. Camp at West Fulton, on Tombigbee, Mississippi, June 9, 1862--6.30 p. m. General Van Dorn: Mr. Dulaney, a reliable citizen of this vicinity, reached my camp an hour since, and stated to me that the Federals in large force entered Baldwyn at an early hour this morning. They reported their strength to be 15,000. The informant estimates their force at 10,000. The enemy took him prisoner, and stated to him that they would occupy Fulton before to-morrow noon. I also have information from several sources (undoubted) that they occupy Marietta. The information as to the occupation of Baldwyn

dges, and was routed at Samaria church. We captured 852 prisoners, whilst his loss in killed and wounded was very heavy. I beg to express my entire satisfaction at the conduct of officers and men in my command. Major-General Fitz. Lee co-operated with me heartily and rendered valuable assistance. Brigadier-General Butler, who commanded my division a part of the time, General Rosser and Colonel Wright, in my own command, all discharged their duties admirably. The same may be said of Colonel Dulaney, who succeeded to the command of Rosser's brigade after General Rosser was wounded. Brigadier-General Chambliss with his brigade rendered most efficient service, as did Brigadier-General Gary, both of these commands contributing largely to the success at Samaria church. The subordinate officers have sustained their superiors well, and the men could not have behaved better than they did. The artillery, under Major Chew, was admirably handled and did good service.

January 2d, but Jones was repulsed. He succeeded in compelling the enemy to burn their stores at Petersburg, and then retired to New Market. The services of Colonel Dulaney, Captain McNeill, Lieut.

A second assault being repulsed, sharpshooters were posted, and Chapman's mounted rifles (Witcher's battalion) secured the stone works close to the building. Under a flag of truce, three times sent in, demands of surrender were made, but the reply was that they were Mulligan's men and would fight to the last cartridge. Finally, after dark, a general assault was made; Ridgely Brown's and White's battalions

d was Captain Baxter, of Company K, while gallantly leading his men in the charge. Colonel Flournoy in his report says: The enemy had fired the bridge across North river, which delayed the pursuit. Four companies of the 6th crossed the river in time to overtake the enemy at Cedarsville, about three miles up the pike, where they had formed to receive the charge. Company E, Captain C. E. Flournoy, was ordered in front and on the left; Company K, Captain Baxter, and Company A, Captain Dulaney, to the right, and Company B, Captain Grimsley, directly up the turnpike. Company B. Company B was first upon the enemy, and charged most gallantly right through their lines, breaking them and throwing them into confusion. This company was supported by Company E from the left, and Companies K and A on the right. The enemy was driven from this position, but soon reformed in an orchard on the right of the turnpike, where these companies again charged and put them to complete

The Fifteenth Mississippi, White's, and Battle's regiments protected our rear while crossing the river. Rutledge's and McClung's batteries were lost. We marched nine miles to attack the enemy, who was repulsed three times and then fell back to their fortifications. When they outflanked us, we retreated back to our breastworks, and were then surrounded.--We then determined to recross the Cumberland river, which we did under the fire of the enemy. This was 8 o'clock on Sunday night. We lost all our horses, tents, equipage, and eleven guns spiked or thrown into the river. It is not known whether or not the enemy has crossed the river. Cols. Powell, Battle, Statham, and Cummings were wounded. Surgeons Morton, Dulaney, and Cliff were taken prisoners. Our regiments were all engaged. Majors Fog and Shields were wounded — the former in the hip. Gen. Zollicoffer's body was not recovered. Our forces (6,000 in number) are still falling back.

He it was in person who conveyed to Col. Cummings, of the 19th Tennessee regiment, in the heat of the fight, the news of Gen. Zollicoffer's fall, and that as senior Colonel, the command of the brigade tell upon him. Our loss in the battle is about 100 killed, and 300 wounded and taken prisoners. Drs. Clift, Morton, and Dulaney volunteered to remain in the hospital with the wounded. The enemy appearing in greater force in front of our works on the afternoon, a council of war was again assembled, and it was determined to abandon a position it were madness to attempt to defend. The forces having all crossed during the night, we took up our line of march for Monticello, where the army was halted until Tuesday morning, when order was in a measure again restored, and the march continued on in the direction of C
The Legislature. --In the Senate, yesterday, the bill introduced by Mr. Randolph, from the Military Committee, was taken up, and, on motion of Mr. Coghill the Senate went into secret session for its consideration. The bill to prevent persons from harboring deserters was ordered to be printed. Mr. Dulaney, of Fairfax, introduced a preamble and joint resolutions on the war and its present aspect, pledging Virginia to listen to no terms of peace of compromise short of the recognition of the separate independence of the Confederate States. Under the rules of the Senate the resolutions were laid over. In the House, Mr. Bouldin, from the Committee on Finance, reported a bill amending and re-enacting the 109th section, of the act imposing taxes for the support of the State Government.
