movement of two columns of the enemy--one from Cape Girardeau. the other from Farmington, or some place on the Iron Mountain Railroad. These columns were both moving in the direction of Fredericktown. Gen. Thompson advanced his army from Greenville on the road that led to the same place. By good fortune Thompson captured a messenger, bearing a dispatch from the commander of the Cape Girardeau force to the commander of the other column, by which he ascertained that it was proposed to unitther until they were literally packed. Then our Missouri boys turned loose upon them with their deadly rifles and shot guns. The effect was terrible. Every saddle was emptied; not a man escaped. Terror, dismay and fear seized those in the rear, and they fled back to the town. This ended the fight. The army under Thompson did not exceed 1,100, while that of the foe exceeded 3,000. This rendered an attack upon their encampment madness, and therefore a return to Greenville was ordered.
