The capture of Curtis.

Our Dispatches this morning confirm previous reports of the capture of Curtis in Arkansas. His situation is known to have been critical for some weeks. This fact has been confessed by the Federal journals, and the Louisville Express, of the 3d says that "the expedition up White river was compelled to abandon the idea of supplying Curtis. He is 80 miles above Little Rock, in a perilous position. The Confederate General Rains is pressing him in the rear with a force of 12,000 men, and fears are entertained that Curtis will be defeated."
