e Creek, near Farmington. Brig.-Gen. Marmaduke's brigade was engaged, supported by Capt. Sweet's Mississippi battery. They maintained their position with great gallantry against the heavy shelling of the enemy for three-quarters of an hour, when our forces fell back. The enemy had six pieces of artillery and heavy signed guns. Heavy volleys of musketry were fired on both sides. Private J. B. Donnelly, only sixteen years old, of Capt. Graddy's Alabama cavalry, captured Lieut. Col. Adams, of Missouri volunteers. A Yankee Major and others were also taken prisoners. The exchange of "civilities" lasted a little over an hour. The enemy's main body consists of five divisions, on the Purdy, Monterey, Hamburg, and Farmington roads. They have not yet advanced.--Many poor families were driven in, by the attack from their homes. Eight o'clock.--The enemy is in possession of Farmington. Our loss is 20 killed and 100 wounded. The enemy's loss is supposed to be heavy. All quiet.
