Sept. 22.

This evening, eight pickets of the Iowa Seventh regiment, out at the Cross Roads, a mile and a half from Eliott's Mills, eight miles above Columbus, Ky., were suddenly approached by fifty or sixty rebel cavalry. The pickets fired, when the rebels turned and fled. Two or three of their number were seen to fall, but were carried off on their horses. One of their horses was killed. The accoutrements and pistols fell into the hands of the Iowa boys, and a riderless horse from among them also fell into their hands. Their wounded and dead were carried away. The rebels returned the fire before fleeing, but did no damage.

A skirmish took place near Hunter, Mo., four miles below Norfolk. Three of the National troops and four horses were lost.--N. Y. Tribune, Sept, 24.

General A. S. Johnston, of the Confederate Army, having assumed command at Memphis, Tenn., issued a proclamation relative to the armed occupation of Kentucky.--(Doc. 57.)
