m the front. I at once called Capt. Crockett back. The courier arrived from Maj. Bowen, stating that he had been attacked, and needed assistance. I at once ordered Capts. Montgomery and Switzler forward at full speed to the relief of Major Bowen. I ordered the train corralled, and Captain Crockett to remain with his company tort our cavalry; after which I went forward to the scene of action. I found Major Bowen some two miles forward, and one-half mile south of Mr. Lewis', on the Lebanon road. I immediately had a conference with Major Bowen, and we mutually agreed to the disposition of our forces and plan of attack. The rebels at the time occupiet. Switzler to join him, flank the enemy, and en gage them at any hazard. Major Bowen, with two companies of his command, went to the left. I took charge of one company of Major Bowen's cavalry, (at his request,) and took position in the centre, as you found us on arrival. I observed at that time that the enemy were moving

Nearly all the guns were destroyed by Captain Switzler, as he had no means of bringing them away with him. Our loss was one man and two horses killed, and one or two horses slightly wounded.

Polk acts more like a priest than a soldier. I don't meet a man once a month who knows any thing about military. I have not seen a field officer who can drill a regiment, or a General who can review a brigade, but McCown, who is an old artillery captain. We are still in Missouri, but expect orders to-day to join Bowen's brigade, at Feliciana, Ky. P. S.--Our pickets have just come in, bringing us the information that five steamers, with Federal troops, and two gunboats, are landing within two miles of us. We are all ordered under arms. Yours truly, Dan. If Dan or his friend would like the original, I will send it to them at the end of the war. I have his name and address. I have also a letter from the surgeon of Watson's battery to a friend in New Orleans. There were thirteen regiments at
