Then our infantry were drawn up at the town and along the roads, while the cavalry were sent on after the flying foe. Our loss was only two killed and eleven wounded, while that of the enemy was ten killed, twelve wounded, (now in our hands,) and about thirty prisoners. The rebel forces were commanded by Brig. Gen. Marmaduke, and consisted of the following regiments: Third confederate (regular) infantry, Maj. Keep. Twenty-ninth Tennessee infantry, Col. Sam. Powell. Twenty-fifth Tennessee infantry, Col. White. Third Louisiana infantry, Col. Pettigrew. One battalion of regular cavalry, and Swett's battery of light artillery (four pieces) of Vicksburg. The affair was a most brilliant one through-out, and reflected great credit upon all concerned. --N. Y. Herald.

The united rebel f, of which nine hundred and fifty-three were of Herron's division. Early in January, 1863, a rebel force, estimated at from four thousand to six thousand, under Marmaduke, moved upon Lawrence Mills, and proceeded by way of Ozark to the attack of Springfield, Missouri, to which place our small force, consisting chiefly of militia,

The next obstacle was Little Red River, a rapid stream and difficult to cross. Genf the army southward, at right angles with the former course. The troops sent forward on the military road encountered Marmaduke and Shelby in force, and kept them in play; but at the same time, Shelby attacked the rear of the army, under command oColonel Engleman's brigade had a serious engagement at Okolona, and soundly thrashed the enemy. On the succeeding day, Marmaduke and Cabell, with a force of four or five thousand men, made a furious attack, but were easily driven off, our army capturing, among other prisoners, two lieutenants, one of them a member of Marmaduke's staff. The army remained here a day or two, waiting for General Thayer to come up, who had been obliged to come by a different route from the one originally intended

The muzzle of their gun was struck by a shell from the enemy, which broke off a piece of the gun, but they continued to fire as if it was uninjured. Midshipmen Foute, Marmaduke, Littlepage, Craig, and Long redered valuable services. Their conduct would have been creditable to older heads, and gave great promise of future usefulness. Midshipman Marmaduke, though receiving several painful wounds early in the action, mMidshipman Marmaduke, though receiving several painful wounds early in the action, manfully fought his gun until the close. He is now at the hospital. Paymaster Semple volunteered for any service, and was assigned to the command of the powder division, an important and complicated duty, which could not have been better performed.

They effected a junction at Archidelphia about the thirty-first. General Cabell was ordered to join Marmaduke. The cavalry was in two divisions, one under Marmaduke, and one under Fagan. General Maxcy was ordered with all his fMarmaduke, and one under Fagan. General Maxcy was ordered with all his force, except such as was needed to prevent small raids, to hold himself at Logansport, in the extreme south-east corner of Indian Territory, so as to support General Rice, and operate on his left should he be forced back by Steele. Steele's plan was supplies in Little Rock and Pine Bluff. Neither direction was followed.
