Trans-Mississippi news. --Gen Price is reported to have attacked Little Rock and captured it. He then fell back and attacked Steele's forces, and routed them with terrible loss. The troops under Quantrell are said to have committed sad havoc on the leased plantations — hanged all the overseers that he caught and all the negroes dressed in Federal uniform. He had also captured some 800 negroes who were at work on the plantations. Gen Price had issued orders against this conduct, but very little attention was paid to them.
rby Smith directed operations. Gen. Taylor commanded the centre, and Gens Walker and Mouton the wings. On Sunday, the 17th, the enemy attempted to cross the Red river, and were attacked again and whipped worse than before, but no particulars have been received. Thirty steamers of all classes ascended the river, and were all above Alexandria, with no probability of escape. Ten or twelve boats were already blown up or burned to avoid capture. Mr Wagner says soldiers and citizens report that Price seemed to have fallen back in apparent disorder, abandoning everything. When the Yankees reached his trains they broke ranks and scattered to plunder. Price turned and out them to pieces, capturing four thousand prisoners, two hundred and fifty wagons, all their ammunition, baggage and supplies. It is reported also that Steele had evacuated Little Rock, falling rack towards the Mississippi river. This story is corroborated by Yankee accounts on the Mississippi.
From Trans-Mississippi. Meridian, May 5. --Information from Trans-Mississippi confirms the former rumors of a battle between Price and Steele, in which the Confederates gained a complete victory. Steele is said to have lost an entire wagon train. Nothing further from the fight in East Louisiana. The cars resume their regular trips to Brandon Sunday. From Trans-Mississippi.
