: I have been put in possession of some most cheering and authentic information, which clears up the horizon all around, and will be most consoling to the faint hearted croakers of the Confederacy, as well as quieting the solicitude for Gen. Johnston. From an irrefutable authority I learn that not a single man of Rosecrans's army of the Cumberland has left to reinforce Grant.

Parson's battery at Cypress Creek, five miles below Napoleon, Ark., fired on five transports loaded with troops, crippling them badly. The troops landed and attempted to storm the battery, but were driven back with the less of 300. The Brookhaven prisoners arrived here to-day. They had orders on their raid to strike through the country, destroy
