gfield, descended into Arkansas, and after crossing the Ozark Mountains near Bentonville, reached Fort Smith, on the great Arkansas River. Beyond this last station of wagons would not have sufficed to perform that service between Rolla and Bentonville. In those regions of the far West, therefore, armies were always obliged to small divisions, neither of which was larger than a French regiment, was at Bentonville, about fifteen kilometres from Sugar Creek. But the positions selected by Crees shooting up from the watery bottoms. Communicating by cross-roads with Bentonville, which it leaves on its right, the post-road descends into the ravine of Sugary building called Elkhorn Tavern. Here branches off a road which leads to Bentonville through the hamlet of Leetown, situated in the centre of the ridge. Such iseat haste, he suddenly changed his route, and marched to the northwest, upon Bentonville, on the same day. One of his columns met there the rear-guard of the small c

Durrettsville, Richmond County, Va., May 21, 1861. The blockade in the mouth of Rappahannock River is kept up strictly, and innumerable and petty annoyances and alarms disturb the peace and quiet of the citizens of the Northern Neck. On Friday last a steam-tug made several landings along the river, and at one point secured a pilot with a determination to capture the Smith's Point light-boat, which was moored up Mill Creek. The purpose of the enemy was not discovered in time to prevent their going up and fastening on to the light-boat, but as soon as it was known, about twenty-five of the citizens, with arms, hastened to the shore, headed by Capt. Stakes, of Lancaster county, and attacked the tug, containing about 200 men; the fire was returned by the enemy, but without effect. Several of the robbers were seen to fall, and if the citizens had received notice in time, they would have prevented the recapture of the light boat. Shots were fired at them all along the Creek as
Affairs at Old Point. --The Norfolk Argus, of yesterday, says: The frigates Cumberland and Minnesota are at Old Point. The Monticello has disappeared. Perhaps she has gone to New York to repair damages. The Wabash and Colorado are expected in a day or two. There were in Hampton Roads yesterday, 6 steamers, large and small; 6 schooners, 3 barks, 1 sloop-of-war, 1 brig and 1 brigantine. Eighteen schooners are at anchor in Mill Creek. We learn that several large steamers came in yesterday, and were lying off Fort Monroe.
t do. We hear it rumored that armed men from Old Point will probably be at the polls next Thurday. Should it be so, you will hear of the commencement of the fight in true earnest. We now have the mortification of seeing soldiers from Old Point in possession of certain parts of our county; but to see the polls in their possession, would be beyond all endurance. Our guards have been driven back, and we have had to place them some distance this side of Mrs. Clopton's residence, on Mill Creek. The guard on the Bay shore, composed of a number of the Old Dominion Dragoons, resisted the approach (stealthily) of soldiers from Old Point to the place where the guard was picketed. They have, therefore, advanced nearly one mile on Virginia's soil. Step by step, they are coming towards us. The battle which took place between the U. S. vessel Monticello, two tug-boats, and the battery at Sewell's Point, on Sunday evening, was witnessed by large numbers of our citizens. A gre
speaking. Though no mention is made in relation to the number of forces engaged on either side, we have other means of ascertaining. The command of Lyon and Siegel, (the latter of whom has recently gone to Jefferson City,) according to the estimate of the St. Louis papers, did not exceed 12,000 men, nearly all of whom were Germans. Gen. McCulloch, as we learn from a gentleman who arrived from his camp a few days since, had 8,000 men under him, encamped in Northwestern Arkansas, at Bentonville, which is only a few miles from the Missouri State line. Gen. Pearce was encamped only a few miles west of him with a force of 10,000, which may have joined McCulloch's column, and participated in the attack. We shall await further intelligence regarding this rumor with great interest. Miscellaneous. A correspondent of a Yankee paper, writing home from the defeat of Manassas, had actually spirit enough left to indulge in a grim and dismal joke at the expense of William How

few companies which came to his assistance. Nevertheless, McCulloch started with his force to Kansas; but on a consultation with Price, it was agreed that he should come back to Benton county, Arkansas, to protect Confederate stores at Fayetteville, and to approach. Springfield, while Price should move from Cassville to the same destination. This was Gen. McCulloch's first retreat. On a consultation held about the first of November, it was agreed that McCulloch should fall back to Bentonville, and Price go to Cassville for winter quarters. There, according to our information, they remained till. Fremont retreated towards St. Louis, when Price commenced moving toward the Missouri river. According to our informant, it was not Price's intention to go toward St. Louis when he left McCulloch, though it is probable, from his having issued a proclamation for 50,000 men, that he has since changed his mind and resolved to go forward. Our informant states that if McCulloch had h
cold, freezing rain, which continued nearly all night. Some few slept through it all; but the majority of the troops gathered in shivering groups around their camp fires.--While thus waiting for the enemy's approach, they suddenly appeared in Bentonville, on our extreme left flank, taking possession of the quarters of Rector's regiment. Two of their scouts were also captured on While river, on our extreme right, indicating an attempt to flank our position. Of course they destroyed the greateprisoners, injured, and will be exchanged in a few days. The water courses being so high, and such stormy weather, has prevented the reception of late intelligence from the enemy, who is reported to be retreating. He is, it is said, now at Bentonville, and still falling back on Caseville. Our army is in fine spirit and ready for another fight. Our total loss in killed, wounded and prisoners was less than 800. The enemy's loss was between 2,000 and 3,000. We took six guns and ca
the 4th of March, moved with the divisions of Price and McCulloch, by way of Fayetteville and Bentonville, to attack the enemy's main camp on Sugar Creek. The whole force under my command was about 16,000 men. On the 6th we left Elm Springs for Bentonville, and from prisoners captured by our scouting parties on the 5th I became convinced that up to that time no suspicion was entertained ofoints in the surrounding country could rejoin the main body. I therefore endeavored to reach Bentonville, 11 miles distant, by a rapid march; but the troops moved so very slowly that it was 11 A. M.h was admirably handled, until we had gained a point on Sugar Creek, about seven miles beyond Bentonville, and within one or two miles of the strongly entrenched camp of the enemy. In conferencenance supplies could not find his wagons, which, with the subsistence train, had been sent to Bentonville. Most of the troops had been without food since the morning of the 6th, and the artillery ho
ohn T. McLean, W. T. Horne and Major Hawly were all hung, to extort from them where their valuables were hid, but were taken down uninjured. It is reported that about four hundred negroes and whites were drowned in Cape Fear river in endeavoring to escape with the Yankees, either from the sinking of a flat or the Yankee officers cutting the pontoons loose. "Private residences, after being plundered, were guarded, to 'protect' them." The battle of Bentonville. A letter from Bentonville, March 20th, gives the following about the defeat of the enemy there the day before: "The fight yesterday was successful. I was on the right, and saw Bate's and Cleburne's divisions charge and carry two lines of breastworks, driving the enemy two miles. Hill, commanding Lee's corps, and Loring, commanding Stewart's corps, did similarly on the left. The troops fought gallantly. General Bate commanded Cheatham's corps; Brigadier General Reynolds, of Arkansas, lost a leg; Colonel Ta
