Movements of Creek Enemies.

--The Fort Smith Times, of the 9th, announces that Hepothleholylo, one of the chief leaders of the old Creek party, was at the head of 1,700 men, near the Creek Agency, in arms against the South. They had ordered the Confederate flag to be taken down, which was reared by McIntosh's regiment, and the Stars and Stripes substituted in its place.

Gen. McCulloch, to repel and crush this outbreak at once, had ordered 1,200 Cherokees, 500 Osages, 1000 Creeks, and a battalion of Col. Cooper's regiment, to march upon them at once. Maj. Clarke had been actively en ged for the previous two days fitting out the expedition. Col. Cooper will assume command of the forces.
