Stanton, Secretary of War: General Pope's heavy batteries opened upon the enemy's intrenchments yesterday about ten o'clock A. M., and soon drove the rebels from their advanced batteries. Major-Gen. W. S. Sherman eed by continual skirmishing along the whole line, and every reconnaissance was equal in many respects to what were termed battles in the earlier part of the war. Gen. Pope on the left and Gen. W. T. Sherman on the right could only carry forward their lines by heavy fighting, and thus for nearly a fortnight the noise of battle has sggage and stores was very great, showing precipitate flight.

Thomas's army moved by way of Farmington, and is to-day encamped in Price and Van Dorn's late positions.

Pope had attempted at any time during the retreat from Corinth, to push hard upon me, I would have given him a lesson that wd men under my orders, and must be looked upon in every respect by the country as equivalent to a brilliant victory. Gen. Pope must certainly have dreamed of having taken ten thousand prisoners and fifteen thousand stand of arms, for we positivel

Pope's army rendered impracticable by the enemy, to make his way through Alabama toward Huntsville, and then report to Gen. Mitchel. To better understand the expedit efforts of Col. Elliott, than whom a better cavalry officer can hardly be found in the service. It is but gratifying that he has already obtained his well-deserved reward by his promotion to a Brigadier-Generalship.
