Mr. J. D. Howe
, of the First Missouri regiment, informs us that on the second inst. two regiments, one from Kentucky
and the other from Indiana
, rebelled at Rienzi, Miss.
, and started South with their arms.
Four regiments of Wisconsin
troops were sent to intercept them, when a fight ensued, lasting from Saturday morning until night.
drove the Wisconsin
regiments six miles in the direction of Corinth
At sundown the Federals
were reenforced by two Illinois
regiments, who came up in the rear of the rebels and compelled them to surrender.
They were arrested and sent to Chicago
An eye-witness who walked over the field says he counted three hundred and fifty-three killed; and another, who spent more time, says he counted over six hundred dead.--Jackson Mississippian, August 25
