Grierson ambuscaded by Col Wirt Adams. Jackson, May 4 --Colonel Wirt Adams ambuscaded Grierson at Amite Bridge. He let three companies cross, when he opened fire, killing and wounding several. Col. Prince ordered the regiment to charge; but the men refined, when Prince charged at the head of some men and was mortally wounded. He is since dead, and his body in our possession.--Three companies escaped to Baton Rouge; the remainder are hemmed in, and will probably be captured. Grierson ambuscaded by Col Wirt Adams.
