Doc. 22. fight at Bennett's Mills, Mo. A correspondent of the Missouri Democrat gives the following account of this affair: Rolla, September 3, 1861. From a gentleman who arrived here from Bennett's Mills last evening, we have further particulars of the attack made on the Dent County Home Guard, stationed at that place, by some three hundred and fifty rebels of Schnabel's regiment. The attack was made by the latter just at dawn of day on Sunday morning, when most of the Home Guard were absent, there being only thirty-eight men present in their sleeping-quarters, under the sheds in the rear of some corn cribs. Fourteen of the men were out on pickets, and twenty-five were absent making preparations to bring to Rolla the eighteen prisoners taken the day before. The officers, except Lieutenant Stewart and Sergeant Bay, were absent; Captain Bennett was away from home, and Lieutenant Chandler had just before gone up to the captain's house after some meal, when he was cut

The enemy, before advancing, had picketed their horses on the Salem road, and crept around the pickets, almost reaching the camp before an alarm was given. They made one rush at first up a ravine, but fell back, owing to the sharpness of the fire poured in upon them, and afterward they fired for some time from tacked in separate squads about the vicinity, and eighteen of their men were captured as above stated. The balance fearing capture, after losing two killed, concealed their guns in a thicket, also forty-five pounds of powder, and dispersed toward Salem. A party of the Home Guard were preparing an expedition to search for these guns on the morning of the attack at Bennett's Mills. The enemy decamped from the latter place after the fight, and no one was left but a few of the citizens and Capt.

The manner in which the above prisoners were captured the day before by the Home Guard, was as follows:--They belonged to a party of thirty-five men, organized at Kirkwood, St. Louis County, commanded by Capt. Robert Harwood, of that county. The guns carried by them belonged formerly to the St. Louis Grays. This company was passing through in quest of the rebel quarters, representing themselves as Unionists and carrying a United States flag.

andler first heard the alarm, he undertook to reach his men, but was prevented by an intervening force. A man fired on him with a pistol, wounding him in the arm. The lieutenant rushed for Captain Bennett's house, seized a rifle, and taking deliberate aim at the man who had wounded him, sent a bullet through his heart. The man gave a spring, threw up his arms, and fell backward on his head. The number of the killed and wounded of the enemy could not be ascertained. They filled a large Michigan wagon, belonging to Lieutenant Chandler, with the dead and wounded, and carried them off the field. Of the Home Guard the following were known to be killed: A. G. Stewart, Second Lieutenant; Thos. J. Estes, private; mortally wounded: Joseph Laroue; the following were also wounded: George Counts, arm shattered; the man who first informed Capt.
