he United States arsenal as soon as our forces entered the city, and arrived just in time to prevent its being blown up by the rebels. There was over a ton of powder in the magazine, and two or three thousand rounds of fixed ammunition in the various buildings. Every thing is uninjured, if I except alone the machine-shops, from which the machinery was removed some months ago to Arkadelphia. The public records were all removed some months ago to Washington, and, aside from the bare State-House and the law library, we found nothing of the State Government. The penitentiary was not touched. The prisoners were marched out, leaving their suppers upon the tables, and all their clothes and bedding in their cells. The two howitzers taken from us were spiked by the rebels before they effected the capture, and were immediately started for the trains. They were of the smallest pattern of mountain howitzers, and are worth little in comparison with the two sixty-fours, one twenty-four,
nt of the Indians. I had this day detailed one battalion of the Sixth Iowa, Major House commanding, and Mr. F. La Framboise as guide, to keep ahead of me five milesd the Indians, during all the trip, ever attack me or try to stampede me. Major House, according to my instructions, endeavored to surround and keep in the Indian, and ran his horse a distance of more than ten miles to give me information-Major House, with his command, still remaining there. He reached me a little after fourbraska, to push his horses to the utmost, so as to reach the camp and assist Major House in keeping the Indians corraled. This order was obeyed with great alacrity,ly, your obedient servant, Alfred Sully, Brigadier-General Commanding. Major House's report. In camp on battle-field of White Stone Hill. Colonel D. S. Winers and destroyed all the winter stores of the enemy, among which was four hundred tons of dried meat. I am respectfully yours, A. E. House, Major Commanding.
