ion of the enemy. Meanwhile the Federal had thrown a heavy force (estimated at 20,000 men) from Bolivar to the South of Corinth, with the design to cut off our retreat and bag our whole army. These fresh troops were met with unexampled bravery and vigor by our jaded men in the sanguinary engagement of Sunday at Pocahontas, which resulted in the discomfiture of the foe, and, thanks to the genius and experience of Gen. Price, in the escape of our army by an improvised road to a point west of Ripley, where they made a stand. The battle on Friday is said to have been the hottest and most desperate of all. Soldiers who were in the battle of Shiloh say it was more terrible than that memorable conflict. The enemy appear to have been thoroughly posted with regard to all our movements.

It became evident, however, that the struggle was too unequal to be continued to any advantage by our forces, whose ranks were becoming fearfully thinned and worn down by fatigue and hunger, while the enemy were being continually reinforced. The order was then given to fall back, and our troops withdrew from the field, leaving many of our dead and some of our wounded in the possession of the enemy.

Maury to make a charge with his division, but this gallant officer was forced to reply that he had scarcely two regiments left for duty. Senstak's artillery was badly cut up, being at one time nearly surrounded by the enemy. Doudell's (35th Alabama) regiment was also roughly handled, but nobly sustained the reputation of Alabama in the unequal strife. Such is a brief, but we believe in the main a truthful, narrative of our recent movement towards Corinth. It is not our purpose here to comment upon the facts related. They are too painful to dwell upon, and call loudly for prompt and searching investigation by the Government.
