unded. The Federal receiving reinforcements from Sherman's forces Chalmers fell back to Byhalia. About three o'clock yesterday (Sunday) Gen. Philips, with 3,000 cavalry and eight pieces of artillery, passed through Holly Springs in a full gallon. They came in on the Salem road and went out on the same road that Chalmers and his troop did the day before. One mile north of this place Philips divided his forces--one column taking the Hudsonville road, and the other the road to North Mount Pleasant. It was at first supposed they were endeavoring to get in Chalmers's rear, but it is now generally believed both columns formed a junction at some point north of here, and are now engaging Chalmers at Byhalia or in that vicinity. Cannonading has been heard in that direction at intervals during the entire day, and much anxiety is felt as to the probable result. Gen. Hatch, with 500 cavalry, camped last night at Chism's place, only two and a half miles from town. They left early this m

On their retreat, passing through Wyatt, they burned every house in the place, and would not permit any of the sufferers to save anything, not even wearing apparel. In the western portion of the county through which they retreated they burned all the residences and barns. They also destroyed the little town of Tallapoosa, six miles west of Holly Springs, as they passed through it. On yesterday, from the cupola of the court-house in Holly Springs, the smoke of as many as fifteen or twenty fires could plainly be seen all along the route of their retreat, and it is believed not a single residence or barn in that part of the country has escaped them. On Wednesday last 25,000 infantry and cavalry, with ten pieces of artillery, passed through this place, taking the road to Wyatt, a mile south of us, and it

A correspondent of the Atlanta Appeal, writing from Holly Springs, Miss., gives an account of the recent movements of Gen. Chalmers in that vicinity. He says: Gen. Chalmers's whole force, having been reinforced by Richardson's command with six pieces of artillery, passed through Holly Springs Saturday last, en route (it was thought) for Colliersville, Tenn., on the Memphis and Charleston railroad. A portion of his forces encountered a column of the enemy at or near North Mount Pleasant, in Marshall county, and drove them back. Reaching Colliersville they surrounded it and Chalmers sent in a demand for the surrender of the place. The Federal refused, and Chalmers at once engaged them. The place was garrisoned by a portion of General Sherman's corps of infantry from Memphis and about one hundred cavalry. After a severe engagement he took the place, captured a train, which was burnt, about one hundred horses and mules, tore up the railroad track, destroyed all their commissa

Galloping up to a squad of old men and boys assembled on the corner of the square, they with drawn pistols, curses and threats, sought to intimidate and frighten them; but failing to do so, went forward. Friday, October 13.--One of our cavalry arrived last night from the Tallahatchie, from whom I learned that no general engagement occurred at Byhalia, but simply an artillery running fight, as our forces were falling back. They reached the Tallahatchie river and crossed, dismounted, and formed a line of battle. The Yankees coming up, our troops engaged them, and finally drove them back, with a Yankee loss of twelve killed, left on the field, and one captain (a Kansas jayhawker) wounded and captured. Of the number of them wounded nothing could be ascertained. Our loss was four or six killed, and some ten or twelve wounded. The Yankees admit a defeat at the river.

Several of the straggling Yankees were picked up by some of our furloughed soldiers after the main body had gone through and sent south. Among the Yankees passing here last Sunday were a number of the notorious Kansas jayhawker, who scruple not at the commission of any crime, however hideous. They came in town in advance of the main force, yelling like so many fiends.
