captured about 3,000 prisoners, 250 wagons with supplies and ordnance stores, 3,000 stand of small arms, and about twenty pieces of splendid artillery. The fight was stubborn. The enemy stood till knocked down by the butts of our guns.--We had about--thousand in the fight — the enemy ten thousand two hundred and fifty. [Second Dispatch.] Mobile, June 13. --A special to the Advertiser, dated Tupelo, June 13th, says that Forrest, with Bell's, Crossland's, Lyon's, Rucker's, and Johnston's brigades, and Rice's and Morton's batteries, whipped the enemy, 12, 000 strong, of all arms, with great slaughter, capturing all things previously reported. Forrest's loss is reported from 600 to 1,000, among them Col Holt, of Bell's brigade; Adjutant Pope, of the 7th Tenn; King, of Rice's battery, 7th Ky. It is reported that the enemy were ambuscaded, and badly cut up and scattered. Gen Forrest is pursuing them beyond Ripley. The heavy rains may retard the enemy's retreat. Forres
cked at New Hope and Dallas. Any further attempt to flank an enemy who shows his claws so pluckily and defiantly as did Johnston in all of these little passages at arms, would be attended with imminent danger to an expedition "thus far into the bowe With the latter river, well bridged with pontoons, in his rear, and his trains and supplies on the Southern side of it, Johnston will have his adversary at an advantage, whenever the prowess of the two armies may be brought to the test. His gallantreased considerably in the retrograde, and is now more than a match for the enemy in "an open field and a fair fight" Gen. Johnston will hardly attack Sherman in his present position, and the latter will not be likely to continue the aggressive unti Richmond is held as well we shall be satisfied. In the meantime we are constantly punishing Grant in that quarter. If Johnston can "hold here, while Lee skins there," we are doing well enough, and the Yankees will abandon both magnificent failures
the wealthiest planters whose home was in Memphis His credit with merchants and bankers was limit less. His capital was more than half a million dollars. At the beginning of the war he amused himself for a time by running the blockade from Louisville to Memphis. He brought out from Louisville, when that city was occupied by a large Federal force, horses and equipments for a company of cavalry. He then undertook to raise a regiment of mounted men. This accomplished, he joined Albert Sidney Johnston at Bowling Green. In every encounter with the enemy he was the victor. He killed the first man with a sabre who thus lost his life after the war began. His victim was a Kentucky renegade, a huge fellow, who bestrode a powerful horse Forrest pursued him a mile or two. The Kentuckian finding escape impossible, turned to fight. Their sabres clashed The skin from the back of the Kentuckian's head was peeled off. Staggered by the blow, the Kentuckian could not party the next stroke.
The battle Commenced in North Georgia--Gen. Polk killed. Atlanta, June 14. --The enemy opened slowly with artillery on our position yesterday afternoon, and, after the storm passed, continued up to nightfall. They opened again early this morning, and the artillery firing continued when the train left Marietta. Both armies are gradually moving towards our right. As the rains have closed, it is supposed that active operations will again commence. Trains from the front to-day bring very few wounded. The following dispatch from Major West, of Gen. Polk's staff, was received by Col. Thrasher at noon to-day: "Lieut. Gen. Polk was struck by a cannon shot to-day about eleven o'clock and instantly killed. Gens. Johnston, Hardee and Jackson were with him when he fell."
