General Fagan did not accomplish this great object. He could not get his artillery, of which he had four pieces, across the Saline River, at a point where he attempted to cross. On the twenty-third and twenty-fourth he encountered a force of the enemy about one thousand five hundred strong, in charge of a train at Mark's Mill, on the west side of the Washita. He succeeded in capturing, of the infantry, one thousand three hundred; all the cavalry--two hundred--escaped. He also captured a four-gun battery, and two hundred wagons and teams, besides one hundred which were burned during the fight. Meanwhile, our forces were drawn close around Camden. The works, which had been constructed by us last year, were such as to make it very doubtful whether we could carry the place by assault. Every exertion was made

The rear of the enemy's column had passed Tulip at eight that A. M. The Saline Bottom was, however, a quagmire, five miles wide, and it was possible his trains had not been gotten over. We had but little expectation of gettingtreat. In a vague hope of being able to overtake the enemy's rear guard next morning, the troops were rested from dark until one o'clock--Churchill and Parsons at Tulip, Walker at Princeton, eight miles to the rear. At one o'clock the column moved forward through deep mud, rain coming down in torrents. At daylight, the two divis

From Shreveport it is forty-two miles to Mansfield, sixty-five miles to Pleasant Hill, and ninety-eight to Natchitoches. On the night of the eighth, Churchill and Parsons came up. The pursuit was resumed at daylight on the ninth. In the evenral Smith's late campaign admits a well-grounded criticism.

For these reasons General Smith determined to move against Steele; and aht to ten thousand men, while with Steele back upon the Mississippi, or his force destroyed, our cavalry might now be in Missouri.
