hill, and about three eighths of a mile north of the village of Farmington. Houghtailing's battery immediately moved up to the enemy's second position at the cotton-gin, while Hezcock's battery proceeded to an open field in front of Farmington and to the enemy's right, from which two points our fire soon became too terrible for humanity to endnre, and the rebels fled in confusion in the direction of Corinth. Then our infantry were drawn up at the town and along the roads, while the cavalry were sent on after the flying foe. Our loss was only two killed and eleven wounded, while that of the enemy was ten killed, twelve wounded, (now in our hands,) and about thirty prisoners. The rebel forces were commanded by Brig. Gen. Marmaduke, and consisted of the following regiments: Third confederate (regular) infantry, Maj. Keep. Twenty-ninth Tennessee infantry, Col. Sam. Powell. Twenty-fifth Tennessee infantry, Col. White. Third Louisiana infantry, Col. Pettigrew. One battalion of regular cavalry, and Swett's battery of light artillery (four pieces) of Vicksburg. The affair was a most brilliant one through-out, and reflected great credit upon all concerned.
