The battle in Arkansas.

We have no further intelligence of the great battle in Arkansas, except that which comes from the enemy, and is, therefore, to be received with distrust. Our dispatches from Memphis, published yesterday, are as late as the Federal accounts, and we still cherish the hope that our forces have achieved a victory which will turn the tide of war in our favor in the West. Our confidence in Generals Price and Van-Dorn assures us that if the chances were anything like equal, the enemy has nothing to boast of.
