y and myself, tender you grateful thanks for the services you have rendered. Whilst we drop a tear, therefore, for those who have fallen, and sympathize with those who are yet suffering, let us not forget to render thanks to the beneficent Giver of all blessings for the success that has thus far attested the truth and right of our glorious cause. F. J. Herron, Brigadier-General Commanding Second and Third Divisions. General Curtis's report. St. Louis, Mo., Thursday, Dec. 11, 1862. Majer-General H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief of the U. S. Army, Washington, D. C. Further details are received from Gens. Blunt and Herron, from the battle ground, Prairie-Grove, near Fayetteville, Arkansas: Our loss in killed and wounded is now estimated at one thousand, and that of the enemy at over two thousand. The rebels left many of their dead and most of their wounded for us to care for. Extensive hospitals will be improvised in Fayetteville. Persons returned from the battle

rove, their native States may well be proud of them. I cannot close this report without availing myself of the occasion to express my thanks to Brig.-Gen. F. J. Herron for the promptness with which he responded to my order to reinforce me, as also for the gallantry displayed by him upon the field. His conduct is worthy of emulation and deserving of the highest praise. To the members of my staff, Major V. P. Van Antwerp, Inspector General; Capt. Oliver Barber, Chief Commissary; Capt. Lyman Scott, Jr., Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, and Lieuts. J. F. till, H. G. Loring, G. M. Waugh, D. Whittaker, and C. II. Haynes, aids-de-camp, who we're in the saddle and with me constantly from before daylight in the morning until the close of the action after dark, I am indebted for efficient and valuable services on the field. Made a special target by the rebel troops, in obedience to the notorious address of their Commanding General, Hindman — issued on the eve of the battle, and a pri
ceived 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 being not tog up like dogs! 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 go<

. After the execution of the movement, I observed a battery of the enemy supported by infantry, trying to get into position in my front. I immediately ordered the Twentieth Wisconsin to charge on the battery, which was done in gallant style, Major Starr leading. After taking the battery, the regiment advanced under a heavy fire to the brow of the hill, when they met a heavy force of the enemy's infantry, some four or five regiments, advancing, which opened a terrific fire on the Twentieth Wie Twentieth Wisconsin is heavy. As far as I have been able to ascertain, it amounts to forty-nine killed, one hundred and forty-eight wounded, and eight missing. In conclusion, I cannot help but bring to your notice the gallant behavior of Major Starr, in immediate command of the Twentieth Wisconsin, as also Adjt. Morris, of the Twentieth, for the cool and prompt manner in which he executed my orders. Capt. Backhof, of the battery, behaved nobly, and his battery did good execution, althoug

e Nineteenth Iowa in the first charge, a true and gallant soldier, sleeps his last sleep. Lieut.-Col. Black, Thirty-seventh Illinois, Major Thompson, Twentieth Iowa, and a large number of line-officould like to mention, but will have to refer you to the reports of brigade commanders. Of Lieut.-Col. Black, Thirty-seventh Illinois infantry, I must say that a braver man never went upon the battlecrossing the Arkansas River. Col. McFarland, of the Nineteenth Iowa regiment, is killed. Col.

heir demonstration in front was only a feint, and that their main force had gone by the Cove Creek road, for the purpose of intercepting communication between Gen. Herron and myself; and, notwithstanding that I had received no intelligence from Col. Richardson--upon whom I had relied to watch this movement — I determined to act accordingly. I immediately ordered the transportation to Rhea's Mills, by a road leading directly north over the mountain, guarded by the Third Indiana regiment, Col. Phillips, keeping the bottom road on the right, leading to the same point, and also the Fayetteville road, open for the movement of troops. I ordered Col. Wickersham, with his cavalry, to move rapidly in the direction of Fayetteville, and form a junction with Gen. Herron. He was followed by Gen. Salomon's brigade, and the Second and Third brigades were withdrawn from the front, and directed to move rapidly on the Fayetteville road. As soon as I determined on this disposition of the forces

en. The First Iowa cavalry escaped wonderfully, considering the position they occupied before the artillery came up. For the space of half an hour the balls flew around us like hail, cutting the limbs from the trees over our heads and all around us, and yet but two men of the regiment were wounded. Captain Chase, of company C, had two ball-holes in his coat; Orderly Sergeant William A. Clark, who was at the right, by the side of Capt. Chase, had his horse's hip cut by a musket-ball, and private Wilson, of the same company, had a ball put through his hat; with these exceptions we came out of the battle unscathed. Many of your readers would have felt proud of their noble sons and brothers, had they been where they could have seen them at the time I just referred to — every man in his place, scarcely moving a muscle as the balls whistled by his head, his pistol drawn and his horse in hand, ready to execute every command that might be given ; and even after every company, except the on
