Corl. X. II MrUan, A. A. 0,-n. Vqxtit
mcnt of Hie Mississippi, Sf. Lnds, Mis
sourii Cai-tain : It becomes my duty again to
report another battle fought between
tw6 great armies, one contending for fhe
maintenance of the best government ever
devised, the other for its destruction. It
is pleasant to record tho success of the
army contending for (he . former prin
ciple." On Sunday morning our pickets were
attacked and driven in by the enemy.
Immediately the live divisions stationed
at this place were drawn up in line of
battle ready to meet them. Tho battle
soon waxed warm on tho left nnd centre,
varying at times to all parts of the
lines. , . '
The most continuous firing of musket
ry and artillery ever heurd on this eonli-.
nent was kept up until nightfall, the en
emy having forced tho entire line to fall
back nearly half , way from their camps
to the landing. At a lato hour in the af
ternoon a desperate effort was mado by
tho enemy to turn our left and get pos
session of the landing, transports, &o.
This point was-guarded by tho gunboats
Tylor and Lexington, Captains Gwynn
and Shirk, US. N.t commanding, tour
20-pouud Parrot t guns, and a battery of
rilled guns. As there is a deep aqa im
passable ravine for artillery and cavalry,
and very difficult for infantry, at this
point, no troops were stationed here ex
cept the necessary artillerists, and ' a
small infantry force for their support.
Just at this moment the advance of Maj.
Gen. Lucas column ,a part of tho divi
sion of Gen. Nelson) arrived, the two
Generals named both being present. An
advance was immediately made upon the
point of nttaek, and tho enemy soon
driven back, in this repulse much is
duo to t lie presence of the gunboats Ty
lor and Lexington, and their able com
manders, Captains Gwynn and Shirk.
During tho night the divisions under
Generals Crittenden nd j McCook ar
Gen. Iavw Wallace, at Crump's Land
ing, six miles below, was ordered at an
early hour in the morning to hold his di
vision in readiness, to bo moved in any
direction lo which it might bo ordered.
At about 11 o'clock the order was deliv
ered to move it up to Pittsburg, but ow
ing to its being led by a circuitous routo
did not arrive in lime to take part in
Sunday's action. During llift night all
was quid, and feeling that a great moral
advantage would be gained by becoming
(he attacking party, an advance was or
dered as soon ns day dawned. The re
sult was a gradual repulse of tho enemy
at all points of tho line, from morning
until probably o o clock in tho after
noon, when it became evident the enemy
liefore tho close of the action, the ad
vance of Gen. 1. J. Wood 8 division ar
riv-d in time to take part in the action.
My. force was too much fatigued from
two days' hard fighting, and exposed in
the open air to a drenching rain during
the intervening night, to pursue immedi
ately. Night closed in cloudy and with
heavy rain, making the roads impractica
ble for artillery by the next morning.
Gen. Sherman, however, followed Ihe
enemy, finding that the main part of the
army had retreated in good order. Hos-
pitalsof the enemy's wounded were found
all along the road as far as pursuit was
made. Dead bodies of tho enemy and
many graves, were also found. I enclose
herewith tho report of Gen. Sherman,
which will explain more fully the result
of this pursuit. Of the part taken by
each separate command 1 cannot take
special notice in this report, but "will do
so more fully whim reports of division
commanders aro handed in.
tien. lluell coming on the Held with a
distinct army, long under his command,
and which did such efficient service,
commanded by himself in person ou the
Held, will be much better able to notice
those of his command who particularly
distinguished themst Iveg than I possibly
I feel it a duty, lunvevcr, to a gallant
and ablo officer, brigadier General W. T.
Sherman, to make a special mention. He
not only was with his command dtiiijig
the entire of tho two days' actio,!, but
displayed great judgment and tskill inlho
management of his men. Although no
vel cly wounded in the hand tho lirst
day, l.i.i placo was never vacant, lie
was again wounded, and had three hors
es killed under him.
In making this mention of a gallant
officer, no disparagement is intended to
the other division commanders, Major
Generals John A McClernaud and Lew .
Wallace, an I ilrigadier Generals S. A.
Hurlb.it, Ji. M. Prentiss, and W. ILL.

Tho country will havo to mourn tho
loss of many brave men who fell at the
battle of Pittsburg, or Shiloh, more
properly. Tlie exact loss in killed and
wounded will be known in a day or two;
at present I can only give it approximate
ly at l,r0O killed, and ..,r00 wounded.
Tho loss of artillei-v was great, many
pieces being disabled by tlio enemy's
she-Is, and somo losing all their horses
and many men, There were , probably
not less tlian two hundred horses killed,
i Tho loss of tin; enemy, in killed aud
left upon the field, was greater than ours.
In wounded tho estimate cannot be made,
as many of them must have been sent to
Corinth and other points.
Tho enemy suffered terribly from de
moralization and desertion. A flag of
truce was sent in to-day from Gen. Ileau

Miij. Uf.n. O'oiif. Ci-nniinnliq Amy in
Sir: With the cavalry at my command
nnd two brigades of my fatigued troops,
I went this morning out on tho Corinth
road. One after another abandoned
camps of the enemy lined (lie roads, with
hospital flags for their protection At
all we found more or less wounded and
dead. At the forks of tho road I found
tho head of General Wood's division.
At that point I ordered cavalry to ex
amine both roads, and found the enemy's
cavalry. Col. Dickey, of the Illinois
cavalry, asked for reinforcements. I or
dered Gen. Wood to advance the head of
his column, cautiously on the left hand
road, whilst I conducted the head of tlie
third brigade of the fifth division up the
right hand road. About half a mile front
tho forks was a clear field through which
the road passed, and immediately beyond
a spaco of Borne two Lundrcd yards of
fallen timber, and beyond an oxtennive
camp. The enemy's cavalry could bo
seen in this camp, and lifter a recoutioig
ance, I ordered tho two advance com
panies of the Seventy-seventh, Colonel
llilderbrand, to deploy as skirmishers,
and tho regiment itself forward into line,
with an interval of 100 yards. In this
order 1 advanced cautiously, until tho
skirmishers were engaged. Taking it for
granted this disposition would clear tint
camp, I held Col. Dickey's fourth Illinois
cavalry ready for the charge. The ene
my's cavalry came down boldly to the.
charge, breaking through the line of
skirmishers, w hen tlio regiment of infan
try, without cause, broke, threw away
their muskets and lied. The ground wan
admirably adapted to a defer so of in
fantry against cavalry, the ground being
miry and covered with fallen titula r.
At the regiment of infantry broke,
Dickey's cavalry began to discharge) their
carbines, and fell into disorder. I in
stantly sent orders to the rear for the
brigade to form in line of bailie, which
was promptly executed. The broken
infantry and cavalry rallied on thin line,
and, as thi! enemy's cat airy caio'- to il,
our cavalry in turn charged and iliov?
tlieiu front ihe field. 1 advanced the en
tire brigade ujfoti the name ground, and
cut Col. Do-Key' cavalry a mile further
