The second is near the large village of Fayetteville, situated in the very centre of the chain; this is the most important of the three, for no less than six roads start from Fayetteville, running severally in the directions of Bentonville, Maysville and the western frontier, Cane Hill, Van Buren, Ozark and Huntsville. The third is a defile in the Boston Mountains which crosses the road from Van Buren to Cane Hill. Hindman had divided his forces; Rains, with six thousand infantry, occupied the heights and encamped in the neighborhood of Pea Ridge; Cooper, with seven thousand horse and some artillery, had advanced into the valley of Neosho as far as Newtonia, thereby menacing from the west the Unionists who were stationed at Springfield, whilst a body of four thousand men, massed on the

Price is near the Arkansas line. It is doubtful whether he will give us battle. The rebel officers thought that the body guard that made the attack was 2,500 strong, and on their retreat swore at the men as a set of cowards.

the Mound city, Carondelet and Pittsburg started in succession to pass the dam, all their hatches battened down, and every precaution taken to prevent accident. The passage of these vessels was a most beautiful sight, only to be realized when seen. They passed over without an accident, except the unshipping of one or two rudders, This was witnessed by all the troops, and the vessels were heartily cheered when they passed over. Next morning, at ten o'clock, the Louisville, Chillicothe, Ozark, and two tugs passed over without accident except the loss of a man, who was swept off the deck of one of the tugs.
