They publish an intercepted letter from General Hindman to General Bragg, in which the former states that he has 30,000 men. Arkansasians, Texans, and Mississippians, and only 3,000 stand of arms. The Yankee papers report a battle to have been fought at Clarendon, on White river, in Eastern Arkansas, between six regiments of Yankee infantry and eight regiments of Confederate cavalry, under General Hindman.

The Confederacy loses nothing by the departure of such a man, notwithstanding the hue and cry raised by the Yankees on his arrival amongst them. From Trans-Mississippi. We get occasional reports through Northern papers of the active operations of the Confederate forces west of the Mississippi. The latest comes from Memphis, in the shape of a statement that the Federal gunboats Hastings and Naumkeag were captured below Clarendon, White river, Arkansas, and Captain Rogers, of the latter, killed. It is also reported that another gunboat, name not given, was sunk at St. Charles, and that Duvall's Bluff was threatened by a considerable force of "rebels." A Little Rock paper contains the particulars of a recent raid at Duvall's Bluff, which is situated on the Little Rock railroad. Large quantities of Government hay were burned, other property was destroyed, and some damage to the railroad inflicted.

Since that time we have crossed the Red, the Arkansas, the White, and now the Missouri river; so that, instead of having the Red and Wachita rivers as a line of defence, the enemy have now their old work to do over again — to drive us from Northern Missouri. Price has taken Jeff. Thompson's old racing ground, leading from Clarendon, in Arkansas, to Batesville and Pilot Knob, in Missouri. He attacked Pilot Knob and Shepherd mountain in a way quite unexpected by them, cutting all communication with St. Louis, and attacked the garrison in its rear. He pursued the affrighted Ewing towards Rolla, and compelled him to give the order to his men to scatter and save themselves. Then turning his course towards the Osage river, he burned the bridge over the Gasconade and marched toward the Osage river, which he struck at Castle Roc

Curious historical fact. --During the troubles in the reign of Charles I. a country girl came to London in search of a place as a servant maid, but not succeeding, she hired herself to carry out beer from a warehouse, and was one of those called tub women. The brewer observing a good-looking girl in this low occupation, took her in his family as a servant, and after a short time married her. He died while she was a young woman, and left her the bulk of his fortune. The business of brewing dropped, and Mr. Hyde was recommended to the young woman as a skillful lawyer to arrange her husband's affairs. Hyde, who was afterwards Earl of Clarendon, finding the widow's fortune considerable, married her. By this marriage there was no other issue than a daughter, who was afterwards the wife of James H. and mother of Mary and Anna, Queen of England.
