en Elliott, of Gordon's regiment, had recruited a battalion of picked men, men known for their steadiness, courage and powers of endurance, and the duty of capturing these outlying posts devolved by right of superior capacity on his command. Marmaduke reached Springfield early on the morning of January 8, 1863. Two miles from the town he dismounted his command and moved up to the attack, driving the Federal outpost before him. Thompson's regiment held the right and Gordon's the left, with Collin's battery and Jeans' regiment, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Gilkey, in the center, while Major Elliott's battalion remained mounted and held the extreme right, and Colonel MacDonald's unattached mounted regiment held the extreme left. The line advanced over the open prairie under a heavy artillery fire. Springfield was strongly fortified. Inside the town were heavy earthworks, flanked by rifle-pits and deep ditches, and on the outskirts was a strong stockade protected by the guns of t
he Telegraph: In traveling from North Fork, Creek Nation, to Red River, Capt. Harrison met one hundred and twenty wagons with emigrants from Texas to the Free States, and was told there were more than these on the Southern route. Disguising himself, he mixed with them a good deal, and learned the object of their settling in Texas, and why they were leaving it now, and a most happy riddance the State is having of them. Capt. H. has no doubt that eight hundred voters have left Grayson, Collin, Cook, Young, Wise and Denton counties. Many of them have left settled farms and cultivated fields. The right sort of immigration from Kentucky and Tennessee can get these farms cheap, and will be welcomed with open arms. Never was there such a chance for bettering fortunes as is now offered to the people of these States. The country is the finest in the world. Thirty bushels of wheat to the acre is no unusual crop, and that all harvested in May. Fine water is abundant, so is timber

In the early part of the present year her husband enlisted in one of the regiments of the Sickles brigade, and was killed at the battle of Williamsburg.--When the news of this battle arrived here, and the wife found the name of her husband among the list of the killed in that action. she became almost frantic with grief, and notwithstanding the efforts of many kind friends to console her, she made known to several that she had no longer any object worth living for, and was therefore determined to die.

11 killed, 20 wounded. The Marietta Confederacy gives some intelligence from Knoxville since its occupation by the enemy: From a gentleman of high standing who arrived here last evening from East Tennessee, we learn that the Yankees have arrested a number of citizens and imprisoned them in the common jail. Among the prisoners are the Rev. Mr. Harrison, of the Old School Presbyterians; Rev. Jos. H. Martin, of the Presbyterian United Synod, and a quiet, in offensive citizen named Collin, of the Rockford factory. The crime of these gentlemen is patriotism, loyalty to the land of their birth, their residence and their affections. The ministers in question did not hide their lights under a bushel, but were outspoken and demonstrative in their patriotism. We have heard their hold denunciation of Yankee wrongs and domestic treason and disloyalty, and their exhortations to their countrymen to exercise courage and perseverance in defence of their sacred rights and honor, fo
Serious difficulty. --On Wednesday night last a difficulty occurred at the house of Mrs. McGrain, on Main street, between 20th and 21st, during which John Collins was shot and seriously wounded in the lower part of the abdomen. It seems that Collins and a man named Wm. Ryan were engaged in a game of cards at Mrs. McGrain's, when a dispute arose between them, and both being considerably under the excitement or liquor pistols were drawn, and Ryan's was discharged at Collins, inflicting the wound above described. Previous to this occurrence the two men were on the most intimate terms, and it is a matter of great surprise to their friends that any trouble should have taken place between them. Up to seven o'clock last night Collin's ball had not been extracted, and although his case did not appear to be a very critical one yet the longer the leaden instrument of death remains in his system the less chance there is of his recovery.
