The exact loss In killed and wounded will bo known la a day or two ; at present I can only give It approximately at 1,500 killed and 3,500 wounded. Tbe loss of artillery was great many pieces being disabled by the enemy's shot, and some losing all their horses and many men. There were proDaniy not less than two hundred horses kiiiea.

At all we found more or leu wouode and dead. At the fork of the road I found thl head of Gen. Wood's dlvialon. At that point oraerra tne cavalry to examine ooin roaai ana louna me enemy's cavairj. Col. Dickey, of the Illinois cavalry. ark for reinforcement. I ordered Gen. Wood I advance to the bead of hla column cantloual on the left, whilet I conducted the bead of thl Third brlgaieesf the Fifth division up the right band road, about half a mile frcm the forks. There was a clear Held through which the road Earned aad Immediately beyond a apace of two tindred yard, of fallen timber, and beyond an eilomlve camp. The enemy's cavalry could be teen In this camp, and after a rcconoolsanon I ordered two advance companies of tbe Obiti k3evcnty-tevenui, Col.

The enemv'a cavalry ca: down boldly to charge, breaking through ttai line of skirmishers, when the inlantry without cause broke, threw awoy.DwIr guns, and lied. As the regiment of Infantry broke, Dlckeyja cavalry began to charge their carbines, snn fell Into disorder. Instantly I sent aiders Ui tbe rear for tbe brigade to form In line ol baltU, which was promptly executed. The broken iniantry anu cavalry tauiea oa the line, and as the enemy's cavalry came to It. onr cavalry In torn charged nod-drove' them from the field.' 1 aavaacea witn to, enure origauo upon tqe same ground, and sent Col. Dickey's cavalry a mile further on the rood. On examining the S-ound which had been occupied by the 77tb hlo, we found 15 dead and about 25 wounded. I sent Tor wagons and bod all the wounded carried back to camp, and the dead hurled. B also caused the whole camp to be destroyed. Here we (ound much ammunition for field pieces, which we destroyed. Also, two caissons and a general hospital with about two hundred and eighty Confederate wounded, and about uity oi our own. not naving tne means bringing them off, Colonel Dickey, by my order, took a surrender, signed by Vtedlcal Director Lyle and all the attending surgeons, and m pltdgo to report themselves to you u prisoners oi war. Also, a piaage mat our wonnac would be carefully attended to and surrenders to as to-morrow u soon as ambulances coul go out.

Also, that wagons be sent out to bring In many tents belonging to as which are pitched all along the road for miles. I did not destroy mem, u l anew tne enemy couia not move them. Tho roads aro very bad and arc strewn with abandoned wagon., ambulances, and lim ber boxes. The enemy has succeeded In carry ing off hla guns, but hu crippled his batteries by abandoning tbe bind limber boxes ol at least twenty guns. I am satisfied that the enemy's Infantry and cavalry passed Hick Creek this morning, trav elling all lut night; and that be left behind all his cavalry, which hu protected his retreat, but signs of contusion and disorder mark the whole road. Tbe cheeck sustained by us at the Fallon Timbers delayed onr advance, so that night came on before tbe wounded were pro vided for and the dead buried. The troops be ing fagged out by three days of hard lighting, exposure, and privations, I ordered tbem back to camp, wnere an now are. Signed, W. T. Siieiuun', Brig. Gen. Comd'g Division.
