s far on account of the scarcity of for age for the immense number of horses, and also to prevent the enemy cutting off our supplies, which they are attempting. It is impossible to estimate the numbers of the enemy. They have a very large, as well as the best organized and equipped army which the Northern Government have ever sent into the field. Latest news. From exchanges received last night we make up the following summary. The battle in Arkansas. A dispatch dated Fort Smith, Ark., March 16, says: Official intelligence has been received that Col. Robert, of Lomstans, is a prisoners, injured, and will be exchanged in a few days. The water courses being so high, and such stormy weather, has prevented the reception of late intelligence from the enemy, who is reported to be retreating. He is, it is said, now at Bentonville, and still falling back on Caseville. Our army is in fine spirit and ready for another fight. Our total loss in killed, wounded a
Probable suicide --A person calling himself J. M B. Ruttedge, Lieutenant in the Texas cavalry, has mysteriously disappeared from the Globe Hotel, in Augusta, Ga, and has probably committed suicide. In the room which he had occupied were found two empty envelopes, one of which was directed to "Hon. J. P. Benjamin, Secretary of War, Richmond," and had on it the following words: "The acc't for $95.50 will be paid by Q. M. Gen't at Richmond, or Maj G. W. Clark. at Ft. Smith, Ark." On the other side of the envelope were these words: "will the members of the M. E. Church have me buried? J M. B. Rutledge, Augusta, Ga., April 8th, 1862." The other envelope is one of the Southern Express Company's by which Mr. Butledge seems to have forwarded to Savannah, for collection, a bill on the Confederate States for $846-17, which was returned to him with this endorsement: "Quartermaster refuses to pay the enclosed bill; March 31st, 1862" On the blank side of the envel
m best; and the twelfth section provides for transportations and colonization of such persons of the African race as may be made free by this act, while the thirteenth section authorizes a proclamation of pardon or amnesty at any time to any person engaged in the existing rebellion, on such conditions as he may propose. The fourteenth section gives the United States courts power to make all necessary orders under this act. The Creek Indians. We copy the following from the Fort Smith (Ark.) Bulletin, of a recent date: It was reported some time since that the Creek Indians had held a secret meeting in their nation and appointed a delegation to proceed to Washington city, for the purpose of representing to the Lincoln Administration that the Creeks were anxious to be once more on good terms with the United States Government; that they had been grossly deceived and misled by the Confederates, and induced to take up arms and fight against the friends of the Union; and th
has been promptly suppressed by Gen. Rosecrans. In Connecticut returns are in from all but three towns. The footings are: Buckingham 38,446; Seymour 32,904. Buckingham's majority 5,64 The Senate stands eighteen Union to three Democrats, and the House 158 Union to 12 Democrats, thus giving the Union party two-thirds of the Legislature, which secures the amendment to the Constitution allowing soldiers to vote. The War in Arkansas and the Southwest. Dispatches from Fort Smith, Ark, state that Gen. Steele has driven the rebels from Arkadelphia, and was advancing on Price's main army, in the direction of Camden. The following official telegram, dated, Pine Bluff, Ark, the 31st, is published, signed by Powell Clayton, Col Commanding: The expedition to Mount Eiba and Longview has just returned. We destroyed the pontoon bridge at Longview, burned a train of thirty-five wagons loaded with camp and garrison equipments, ammunition, Quartermaster stores, &c. Capture
mining operations very badly, and the explosion took place forty yards in front of our works. They attempted an assault afterwards, but were repulsed with considerable loss. Both armies are engaged in strengthening their defensive works. A few days since fifty rebel deserters attempted to come into our lines in a body, but our troops, not understanding their intentions, fired on them, and twenty-nine of the number were killed or wounded. Miscellaneous. A dispatch from Fort Smith, Arkansas, says that the rebels, under Generals Cooper, Gaines and Standwaite, were defeated near that place on the 31st ultimo. They were in full retreat, pursued by the Union forces. Lincoln has revoked General Hunter's order banishing rebel sympathizers from Central Maryland. General Hooker has not been assigned to any command yet. He will visit New York. Admiral Dahlgren has published a letter attempting to prove that his son, Ulric, did not write the orders found on his per
ed on the lines in front of Richmond and Petersburg. Grant has issued an address to the Armies of the Potomac and James, congratulating them upon the success of the land and naval expedition against Fort Fisher. Through Confederate sources we have nothing additional from Wilmington or thereabouts. The Yankee papers continue to be filled with accounts of the capture of Fort Fisher and glorifications over the event. There was a report yesterday that General Price had captured Fort Smith, Arkansas, with its garrison of two thousand men. The report is not confirmed by official intelligence. Mr. James A. Seddon has resigned the Portfolio of War. We have not been able to learn that his successor has been appointed, though several prominent gentlemen are spoken of as likely to be appointed. Among these are General Braxton Bragg, General Breckinridge, and Senator Hill, of Georgia. There is a report that the place had been offered to General Breckinridge, but that he declined
ntment may be questioned. General Pleasanton was championed by the anti Lane party in Kansas during the last election, and this fact compelled the Lane party to pitch into him — consequently an ill-feeling has broken out, which would naturally find vent in the accession of General Pleasanton to command. The principal military operations in Kansas just now consist of vigorous measures against the Indians on the Overland Mail route. General Thayer has been removed from command at Fort Smith, Arkansas, and General Syrus Bussay, formerly a Breckinridge Democrat of lowa, appointed his successor. General Bussay is now a decided Abolitionist, and hates rebels worse than rattlesnakes. The change in commanders at Forth Smith may tend to discourage the plans of the cotton-speculating, horse-trading store- runners who have virtually managed that district ever since its acquisition.
