Ascertaining that Elk River could be crossed at two fords in the vicinity, and that a detachment of the enemy, variously reported as to number, were guarding a trestle work on the railroad on the opposite side of the river, I determined to capture them, and for this purpose divided my command, placing one squadron of my regiment with the Texan Rangers, under Captain Houston, with directions to cross at the ford below the trestle work and cut off the retreat of the enemy

er ford, should make the attack from above. The movement was entirely successful, resulting in the capture of the entire force stationed at the trestle work, which force was found to be much smaller than had been represented. The enemy, under cover of some buildings, made a gallant defense for about ten minutes, but finally surrendered. I have as prisoners 2 captains, 2 lieutenants, and 43 non-commissioned officers and privates; also 8 negroes. Our loss is 5 killed, among them Captain Harris, of the Rangers, whose loss is deeply regretted, and 7 wounded. Among the latter I regret to include Captain Noel, a most excellent and gallant officer, seriously wounded in the side. The loss of the enemy in killed and wounded was much heavier. Captain Houston is entitled to much credit for the able manner in which he co-operated, and the conduct of the men was extremely gallant and praiseworthy. Minute particulars will be communicated to you as soon as they can be furnished.
