Modesty of Gen. McCulloch.

--Gen. McCulloch, in making his official report of the killed and wounded on the Federal side, estimated the killed at 800 and 1000 wounded. We have conversed with a number of persons who were on the battle field after the battle, all agreeing in placing the killed at not less than 1500. H. Specht, an honest German of this place, belonging to the Belle Point Guards, who returned home yesterday, says he was on the field until 6 o'clock, on the day of the battle, and was all over it since. He says that for two and on-half miles the were strown thick, and is some please lying in . He estimated the loss at between 1500 and 2000.

The Federals reported between 3000 and 4000 missing at roll call.--Fort Smith Times.
