Mobile, October 29.
--A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, from Senatobia. October 25th, says the St. Louis Republican of the 24th contains a dispatch to General Craig from Major McDynald. He had just reached the railroad from a trip four miles into Richmond county, Kansas. A battle had been fought between the Kansas troops, under Blount, and the Confederates, under Price, on the 19th. Blount was defeated, with the loss of nearly all of his artillery. After, the battle, Price marched into Lexington, and at last accounts was crossing a portion of his forces to the north side of the river.

The Republican contains the following:


"Kansas City, October 22.
"I have been pressed all day. This afternoon the enemy passed around my right flank, when I gave him heavy blows for several hours. I have heard firing to the east, and have just received a message from Pleasanton, who is fighting on the other side.

[Signed] S. A. Curtis,
"Major-General."
