To Capts. Rabb and Hopkins, and Lieuts. Tenny and Stover, who served their artillery with such terrible and destructive effect upon the enemy's ranks, too much praise cannot be a in close quarters. We were as often repulsed by the rain of bullets. At one time, two mountain howitzers, under Lieut. E. S. Stover, Second Kansas, came to our assistance, and did splendid execution. About dark, and while making a final attempt nowledgments to Col. Ewing, of the Eleventh Kansas, Lieut.-Col. Bassett and Capt. Crawford, of the Second Kansas, and Lieut.

Blunt received information of a character to leave no doubt upon the subject that the united rebel forces in Western Arkansas, at least twenty-five thousand strong, under the command of Hindman, a Major-General in their service — with Marmaduke, Parsons, Roane, Frost, Shoup, Fagan, and others as brigadiers — were preparing to march upon him from a point midway between Van Buren and Cane Hill, and that they might be looked for at any day; the distance from their position to the latter point beings! Ambitious, unprincipled, and vindictive as he is, it is not to be questioned that Hindman is a man of a high order of ability and of great resources. Not all of his half a dozen or more brigadiers united — though Marmaduke and Roane, and Parsons and Frost are of the number (and were here in the battle)--could have gotten together, and kept together, an army of men such as he has, and supplied them with arms. In the writer's opinion, he (Hindman) is, in every quality that goes to consti<

rove them back. I would here notice the bravery of Capt. Bruce and the men under him. After advancing up near the wood the enemy came out of cover showing a heavy body of infantry and two battalions of cavalry. They met with a warm reception from the right under Capt. Bruce, which made them scatter. At this time I got an order from Col. Orme to fall back to the corn-field so as to let the batteries shell the woods, which was done in good order and held until ordered to join the regiment. R. Root, Lieutenant Commanding Skirmishers. On the morning of the eighth I was ordered into line at six o'clock, and advanced across the creek and formed in line of battle, and advanced up through the timber on the left of the Twentieth Wisconsin. I was then ordered to occupy tho fence east of the house, which I did, crossing part of the ground that was fought over. the day before. I occupied the position until ordered to fall back, so as to let both sides have a chance to collect their dead

Hubbard, discovered a body of cavalry falling back on the road in great disorder. It proved to be the First Arkansas and Seventh Missouri cavalry, that were movingfort, the retreating cavalry were checked and re-formed; but in holding the rebel advance the First battalion First Missouri cavalry were severely handled, and Major Hubbard taken prisoner. Here the rebels formed in line of battle, but on opening fire upon them with a section of battery E, First Missouri artillery, they were soon the parts taken by them. They have on other fields proved themselves worthy of the name of American soldiers, and I have no doubt sustained it while with you. Major Hubbard and his command, the fighting battalion of the First Missouri cavalry, gallantly held in check the rebel advance in the early part of the day, and on this occa

Thirty-seventh Illinois, Major Thompson, Twentieth Iowa, and a large number of line-officers are wounded. Major Burdett, of the Seventh Missouri cavalry, a brave and noble soldier, was killed in the early part of the battle. My troops all did well, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Missouri, side by side, fired by the truest test, their loyalty and love of country. Colonel Houston, commanding Second division, was always in the front, and did valuable service. Cols. Orme, Clarke, McE. Dye, and Bertram, commanding brigades, were with their commands in the thickest of the fight, and performed their duties well. I must especially mention the working of Murphy's, Foust's, Backof's, and Boeries's batteries. The former fired his guns with the precision of a sharp-shooter, while the others worked their pieces gallantly in the midst of a terrible infantry fire. My cavalry, the First Iowa, Eighth Missouri, Tenth Illinois, and Second Wisconsin, having been with you during the day,

Observing that the enemy had now thrown a large force upon my centre and right, I directed the infantry of the First division to enter the woods and engage them, which order was executed with promptness, Colonel Weer leading the Tenth and Thirteenth Kansas regiments of his brigade upon the right, a portion of the Kansas Second, (dismounted,) under command of Capt. S. J. Crawford; the right wing of the Kansas Eleventh, under Col. Ewing, and the First Indian, under Col.
