Hindmand, partially engaged a superior force of the enemy near Woodsonville. In the action we sustained a loss of four killed and nine wounded. The enemy was driven back and lost about fifty killed and seven prisoners. The conduct of our troops was marked by impetuous valor. On charging the enemy, Col. Terry of the Texas Rangers, was killed in the moment of victory. His regiment deplore the loss of a brave and beloved commander,--the army one of its ablest officers. The General commanding returns his thanks to Brig. Gen. Hindman and his command, for their conduct in the initiative of the campaign is Kentucky, and he hails the brilliant courage shown in the affair as a bright augury, of their valor when the actual hour comes for a decisive blow.
