rch. The residue of the enemy fled in disorder and were pursued by Col. McCauseland's regiment, on the 26th, some eight miles, and some were captured. The pursuit has been continued for several days, and the enemy taken in squads, the number now amounting to nearly two hundred. The enemy lost in killed between fifty and seventy-five.--We lost four killed, seven badly, and three slightly wounded. Several of the Hessians are yet scattered in the woods, and will probably be taken. We captured four wagons, with some stores and one surgeon's carriage. Among the captured of the enemy, we have a free negro, a Massachusetts mulatto by birth, recently a resident of Cleveland, Ohio. Col. Tyler ordered his men to a "double quick" and then fled by a bridle path, leaving his regiment under the command of Captain Shurtliff, who was taken prisoner. General Floyd was greatly exposed, and the gallant officer was delighted at our success, and showed his gratitude to his men. C. L.
