Trans-Mississippi news.

--Gen Price is reported to have attacked Little Rock and captured it. He then fell back and attacked Steele's forces, and routed them with terrible loss.

The troops under Quantrell are said to have committed sad havoc on the leased plantations — hanged all the overseers that he caught and all the negroes dressed in Federal uniform. He had also captured some 800 negroes who were at work on the plantations.

Gen Price had issued orders against this conduct, but very little attention was paid to them.
