rom it. Holmes occupied the south of Arkansas with the two corps of Price and Marmaduke, the first comprising two divisions of infantry, the second three divisions, m Arkadelphia to Shreveport. His cavalry, divided between Generals Fagan and Marmaduke, was guarding the Washita: the one was near Camden, the other above and belowleft Arkadelphia on April 1st. On the very next day he found in front of him Marmaduke, who had reunited his division by recalling Cabell. The Confederates were ably to the left and took possession of the crossing called Elkins' Ferry while Marmaduke was waiting for him farther up with the bulk of his troops. Seeing himself dle to contend seriously with Steele for the possession of Camden, but he sent Marmaduke with Cabell's and Shelby's brigades to make a detour and head him off on the sion formed this rearguard, easily repulsed the attack, while Steele, driving Marmaduke before him, entered on the 15th the works of Camden, which the enemy had been
— a violent snow storm — is being repeated to-day, only a little more so. Alas! even in climate our once noble State is fast becoming identified with the Korean Association. Indeed, nearly all her pride and independence has long ago "frizz up," and her Convention exults daily in giving publicity to the fact. That fearful disease, diphtheria, has renewed its ravages in our midst. Several children and young people are now lying at the point of death with it, while on Saturday, little Marmaduke, the only son of our much esteemed fellow-citizen, Mr. Wm. Jones, was borne to the grave a victim. The child was very generally and much beloved. On yesterday afternoon a party of young gentlemen started for Magnolia Springs in a hand car, on the Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad; but before they reached their destination, one of them, a Mr. Nacey, from New York, I believe, was thrown from the car and run over. With serious damage to his lower limbs, he had a narrow escape with his life

These prisoners were taken, and the the men killed after a retreat was ordered by the officers commanding the State troops. The State troops retired in good order, not more than three hundred having engaged in the skirmish. Some ten of the Federal troops were killed, and as many as from twenty to thirty wounded, some mortally. Col. Marmaduke commanded the State troops, and Gov. Jackson was in person on the ground. No cannon were captured by the Federal troops; all having been saved, except some piece which were thrown into the river, these having been placed in position on the river, four miles south of Booneville. Gen. Parsons, with some fifteen pieces of ordnance, was advancing to meet the State troops at the time they were retreating. All these were saved. No word of disbanding the State troops was ever heard of;
o the column, the fire from the skirmishers re-commenced. The enemy appeared in force upon my right and centre. Col. Terry, at the head of 75 Rangers, charged about 300, routed and drove them back, but fell mortally wounded. A body of the enemy, of about the same size, attacked the Rangers, under Capt. Ferrell, upon the right of the turnpike, and were repulsed with heavy loss. The enemy now began crossing by regiments, and moving about on my right and left flanks. Three companies of Col. Marmaduke's (1st Ark.) battalion were thrown out as skirmishers on my left, engaged the enemy's right, and drove them to the river. I now ordered forward Capt. Switt's battery and the 2d Arkansas regiment to support it, holding the 6th Arkansas regiment in reserve. The artillery opened fire upon the enemy in the field adjacent to the railroad, and drove them to the bank of the river. Firing now ceased on both sides. The enemy made no further attempt to advance, but knowing that he had alre

[Signed] G. T. Beauregard, General Commanding. [Official,] J. M. Otey, A. A. A. General. Corinth, May 3 --Still later.--The enemy's advance consisted of about 8,000 infantry, with cavalry and artillery. The skirmish commenced at Seven Mile Creek, near Farmington. Brig.-Gen. Marmaduke's brigade was engaged, supported by Capt. Sweet's Mississippi battery. They maintained their position with great gallantry against the heavy shelling of the enemy for three-quarters of an hour, when our forces fell back. The enemy had six pieces of artillery and heavy signed guns. Heavy volleys of musketry were fired on both sides. Private J. B. Donnelly, only sixteen years old, of Capt. Graddy's Alabama cavalry, captured Lieut. Col. Adams, of Missouri volunteers. A Yankee Ma
Very latest from Corinth. [special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.] Corinth, Miss., May 3 --8 o'clock P. M.--There was heavy skirmishing this afternoon. The enemy advanced in force. Two batteries and several thousand men were engaged. Brig.-Gens. Marmaduke and Picket led our force at Farmington, four miles from Corinth. The firing commenced at 1½ o'clock. The artillery opened at half-past 5. After shelling three quarters of an hour the brigade retired. Our loss was about 20 killed and wounded. The enemy is doubtless advancing, feeling his way. A grand battle is expected within three days. The army is confidently awaiting the attack. Dr F.
he first act in the approaching drama was performed yesterday. The Federals, several thousand strong, supported by a heavy body of cavalry and two batteries of artillery, made a demonstration upon one of our brigades under the command of Gen. Marmaduke, stationed on the front, about three-fourths of a mile beyond Farmington. The latter is a small place northeast of Corinth, distant about four miles, Firing between the pickets commenced between one and two o'clock. Our skirmishers were thenee hundred and fifty Federals, and a large amount of stolen stores. The prisoners, as I learn, were released on taking the oath of allegiance. The details of the late skirmish at Farmington substantiate my first account. Our troops under Marmaduke fought with the greatest gallantry for more than five hours, and several times drove the enemy back in confusion. We still hold Farming on and the Federals therefore gained nothing by their demonstration. Their loss is supposed to be fully tw

From the Southwest. Mobile December 12. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register from Murfreesboro' dated 11th inst, says: "Yesterday morning the enemy, 50.000 strong re-occupied Hartsville.
