Miss, Feb. 22 --Lieut. Gen. Polk: Major General Forrest reports at 9 P. M. yesterday, two miles south of Pontotoc, we have had severe fighting all day with the enemy. The engagement closed about dark. We have killed about 40 of the enemy and captured about 100. Our loss is not known, but is not so heavy as that of the enemy. The prisoners captured report that two of their Colonels and one Lieut. Colonel were killed this evening. Col. Forrest was killed this evening. Col-Barksdale was badly wounded in the breast. Col. McCollock was wounded in the head. We have captured four or five pieces of artillery. Gen. Gholson came up this evening, and will follow after them and drive them as far as possible. The fight commenced near Okolona late this evening and was obstinate, as the enemy work forced to make repeated stands to hold us in check and to save their pack mules, etc., from a stampede. The fight closed with a grand cavalry charge of the enemy's

Barksdale, of McLaws's di of the same division, was mortally wounded, but has since died, and fully one half of the field and line officers of these divisions were the Yankees had just been driven. This brigade, with Perry and Wilcox, were formed on the right of Hill's corps, and the left of Longstreet's being joined on to Barksdale's brigade, of McLaws's division. --After the sport of a fight in the morning the troops of these brigades rested until about four o'clock, when the attack begun on the right and gradually extended around to the left. After Barksdale's brigade, of McLaws's division, had been engaged for some time, Wilcox, Wright and Perry, were ordered forward, encountering a line of the enemy, and soon putting them to rout. Still pressing forward these three brigades met with another and stronger line of
nough to make memorable in history his name and that of the light division which he commanded, by the part which it bore in the first day's fights. I have not space to speak of all our gallant ones, living and dead, but the hearing of one general officer who fell wounded in these fights was sublimely grand. Providence made him a hero at Gettysburg, but at Chickamauga he even surpassed himself, and a grateful people will ever delight to do honor to Lt. Gen John B Hood. Over the graves of Barksdale, whose bravery was only equalled by his patriotism, and Semmes, than whom God never made a purer Christian gentleman, we can only drop the tears of regret at their untimely fall, leaving to a grateful posterity, and to other hands, the pleasing task of perpetuating their memories and enshrining their virtues.
