sted, without intermission, during the entire day, and was renewed on Monday morning, and continued undecided until 4 o'clock in the afternoon, when the enemy commenced to retreat, and are still flying towards Corinth, pursued by a large force of our cavalry. The slaughter on both sides has been immense. We have lost in killed, wounded, and missing, from 18,000 to 20,000 and that of the enemy is estimated at from 35,000 to 40,000. The fight was brought on by three hundred of the Missouri regiment of Gen. Prentiss's division, attacking the advance guard of the rebels, which they supposed to be the pickets of the enemy. The rebels immediately advanced on Gen. Prentiss's division, on the left wing, pouring in volley after volley of musketry, and riddling our camp with grape, canister, and shell. Our forces soon formed into line and returned the fire vigorously, and, by the time we were prepared to receive them, had turned their heaviest fire on the left centre, Gener

s body had been found upon the field. He also confirms the report that Beauregard's arm had been shot off. [A veracious officer.] Another specimen. St. Louis, April 9 --General Halleck, with a portion of his staff, left for the Tennessee river this afternoon; and will immediately assume command in the field. [Where is Buell?] The St. Louis Democrat's Chiro special correspondent says: The rebels were pursued by 800 of our cavalry, [ coming down,] The rebel prisoners state that Beauregard made a speech to his troops before entering the fight, saying that he would water his horse in the Tennessee river or in hell, and that the fight before them was hell, unless successful. [This lie is really too absurd to contradict. Let the Yankees make the most of it, Of course a fool and a liar invented the statement, and nobody but a fool will believe it] Another Federal dispatch say: Our on Monday was heavy, besides the killed and wounded, and embraced our camp

ral Buel having arrived the ball was opened at day light by Wilson's division on the left and Major-General Wallace's division on the right Gen. Nelson's force opened a most galling fire on the rebels, and advanced rapidly as the fell back. The fire soon became general along the whole line, and began to tell with terrible effect on the rebels. Gens. McClernand, Sherman, and Huriburt's men, though chiefly jaded from the previous day's fighting, still maintained their honors won at Donelson; but the resistance of the rebels was terrible, and worthy a better cause. Their resistance, however, was not enough for our undaunted bravery and the dreadful desolation produced by our artillery, which was sweeping them away like chaff; and knowing that defeat there would be the death blow to their hopes, their Generals still urged them on in the face of destruction, hoping by flanking us to turn the tide of battle. Their success was for a time cheering, as they began to gain ground

d listened to with unusual silence! In the latter branch there was a slight applause, which suddenly ceased on the announcement of the heavy losses suffered. The latest dispatch from Commodore Foote was also read, and this was received enthusiastically by the House. Still Another account.
