ch we find the following paragraph: Corinth was evacuated, as before announced on Monday last, everything of value in that section being brought to Memphis. The Memphis and Charleston Railroad, which was at the same time abandoned east of LaGrange, will to night be evacuated from LaGrange to Memphis. The entire force that has been holding and the country between Corinth and Memphis so long, was concentrated at Memphis, and the entire infantry and artillery, under command of Major GeneraLaGrange to Memphis. The entire force that has been holding and the country between Corinth and Memphis so long, was concentrated at Memphis, and the entire infantry and artillery, under command of Major General Hurlbut, have gone upon boats down the river. This expedition is splendidly equipped and started off in most excellent spirits, and in numbers that will make the rebellion tremble wherever they may go. Gen. Hurlbut and staff left Memphis on Thursday, on the steamer Hastings. The order of Major-General Hurlbut, organizing the forces for the expedition is also given. The infantry consisted of forty-eight regiments, divided into four divisions, commanded respectively by Gens. Tuttle, Dodg

e been more severe than has been stated. A large number of stragglers, not yet estimated, have been captured by the enemy. As to our losses in killed and wounded, we have no means to judge, no official report having yet been published on that subject. During the numerous attacks which took place all along our lines a regiment of Federal cavalry was entirely overwhelmed by Chalmer's men and broke away, leaving three guns in the hands of the rebels. Our forces were pursued as far up as Lagrange by the rebel Generals Richardson and Rhoddy. Gen. Forrest, with a body of cavalry, two thousand strong, had remained at West Point, and was to leave that place to fall upon General Sherman's rear. It is not true that Gen. Lee is said to have assisted Forrest in repulsing our troops. Lee is not with Forrest, but was at the last date harassing Sherman's rear in company with Cosby and Wirt Adams. The failure of Gens. Smith and Grierson has produced a very sad impression here, not me
tely befogged the Yankees as to his movements. Another dispatch from St. Louis, dated the 25th, says: Advices from Memphis to the 22d say that Forrest's entire force were moving towards Alabama, followed by Grierson. Polk was said to be marching north, and Forrest would probably join him. On the morning of the 21st Grierson's cavalry came upon some of Forrest's troops, near Huntsville, when a sharp fight ensued. The rebels retreated in the direction of Jackson passing through Lagrange. A number of prisoners, horses, mules, and wagons were captured from them and taken to Memphis. Gen. Price had evacuated Camden, Ark., and Gen. Steele occupied the place. Grierson has picked up a few of Forrest's men, but Forrest keeps his troops well together, and is too strong for a successful attack. His headquarters are still at Jackson, Tenn.

hio regiment, which was in the rear of the columns, and hard pressed by Col Lyon, surrendered. The various troops of Gen Buford's command in this, the second day of the pursuit, captured a thousand prisoners. Having followed the enemy nearly to LaGrange, and put his column to flight in fragments, the troops commenced their return on the morning of the 12th, and scouted the woods to the left of the Statem road back to Ripley. The result has been that seven or eight hundred more straggling Yankees were caught. Grierson and Sturgis deserted their commands beyond Ripley and fled to LaGrange. The outrages committed by the enemy in the expedition exceeded all former example. Houses were robbed of every necessary to the support of families. Ladies insulted and outraged; children robbed of their clothing, and left naked, crying and hungry; old men choked and gagged, and in some instances beaten nearly to death; women kicked out of doors for murmuring at these wrongs, and knocked down
received at General Bragg's headquarters at evening Meridian, Miss, July 7. To General Braxton Bragg: The enemy evacuated Jackson yesterday evening. Brigadier General Adams fought them yesterday evening and this morning, punishing them severely. They are now on retreat to Vicksburg. Brigadier General Gholson was severely, though not dangerously, wounded. The enemy did no damage to Jackson, to the railroad, or the telegraph. The enemy is advancing in force from Lagrange and towards Ripley. I am prepared to meet him. S. D. Lee, Lieutenant General. An incident of the fight at Nance's Shop. A singular case of retribution took place in the fight of the 24th ult., in Charles City county. That gallant young soldier, J. Lucius Davis, Jr., (son of the veteran cavalry officer of the same name,) who was killed in the storming of Sheridan's entrenchments, came to his death in the following manner: When the detail was made for the storming party he was
my.-- General Forrest scorned his threat, and told the Yankee officer he intended to return the same way he came, by Hernando and Panola. This honest avowal was regarded by the stupid Washburne as a ruse. He felt certain, since General Forrest had declared his determination to return by Panola, that he intended to attack the Memphis and Charleston railroad and go out by Bolivar, Tennessee, and consequently he sent all his troops in that direction. General Forrest crossed the Tallahatchie unmolested. After reaching Panola, on the 23d, General Forrest began to look to see if his raid would have the intended effect of drawing back the large force at Abbeville threatening to devastate the State; and sure enough that night about 12 o'clock he received by telegraph the gratifying intelligence that the enemy were falling back from Oxford to LaGrange.--Thus did he accomplish his object, in addition to killing, wounding and capturing five hundred of the enemy and many valuable horses.
prisoners say that they looked all day yesterday for the expected attack, and think that to-day will assuredly bring the terrible trial home to them. Kentucky and east Tennessee. A telegram from Louisville on the 9th says that there was considerable excitement there the day before from the arrest of gamblers and the impressment of the horses. The street cars were temporarily stopped for the want of motive power. It thus explains it: A gang of Gentry's men took possession of Lagrange yesterday afternoon, injuring the railroad so as to disarrange the track for a day or two. The Journal says it is our impression that Breckinridge will turn up in a new and unexpected quarter before long. Miscellaneous. Gold was quoted in New York on the 9th at 239 1-2. Major-General Cadwallader has been assigned to the command of the Department of Pennsylvania, formerly known as the Department of the Susquehanna, vice General Couch, assigned to a command in General Thomas's
From Kentucky. A telegram from Louisville, dated the 24th, gives the following intelligence about General Lyon's progress in Kentucky: General Lyon's force, estimated at from two thousand to three thousand cavalry, with six guns, struck the Louisville and Nashville railroad at Elizabethtown, and destroyed a few unimportant spans over Bacon creek, a small stream, and then turned north, and are now threatening the important trestlework at Muldraugh's Hill. Lagrange's brigade, of McCook's division, is close upon Lyon's rear. Our military authorities are prepared to give Lyon a warm reception. On Saturday, the steamer Morning Star, Captain Ballard, bound from Louisville, put in at Lewisport, and was boarded by fifty guerrillas, under Captain Davidson, who robbed the passengers of three hundred thousand dollars. Shots were fired by the guerrillas at some of the parties in the cabin, injuring no one. They subsequently killed two discharged soldiers on deck, and then comp
yon's rebel cavalry went from Elizabethtown to Hadenville yesterday, and cannonading was heard at Muldraugh's Hill, from the direction of Elizabethtown, last evening, supposed from a collision between General McCook's and Lyon's forces. Headquarters are advised that the remainder of Lyon's troops, estimated at two thousand five hundred, with but one piece of artillery, left Elizabethtown at 2 o'clock this morning, going towards Hadenville, and was inquiring en route the way to Greensburg. Lagrange's brigade, of McCook's command, was reported closely upon their rear. Lyon was himself at Hedgeville yesterday. His forces did not assail Muldraugh's Hill this morning, according to their previous announced intention. The damage to the railroad was so slight that it will be in running order on Wednesday. On Friday night, Lyon's force was reported to have burned express train No. 4, which contained a detachment of two hundred soldiers and three officers en route for Nashville to
