From Oaptnin Simt, of ihe U7 ii Inlli

C ''n Prarrlf, five milef this ide if Op
aloaaf on the 5d alt The 1st brigadf
of t ho 4th division, of ihe T3lli army
corps, undrr evimmand of Col. Owen,
w;vt in the advance. Thev had bfeo
thrown out five miles with support.
Knowing that lh enemy, Dndf? Dirik
Taylor, wns in the vicinity. Gen. Hur
bridge, who commands (he 4'h division,
had aiked frr reinfon-'.-mentu, but fer
some reason ihey were not sent in sea
son. In tba meantime the enemy under
Taylor had received heavy reis force
mend from New Mexico, AHgonn and
oilier places, so (hat tluir number was
variously estimated from eight to twelve
thousand. They made an ailack on ou:
advance about noon of. the 3d, and the
fiht lnfed nearly all the afternoon
Owing to great inferiority of numbers
our forcea were at length driven hack
with a loss of 500 killed, wounded and
prisonera. The fighting was very severe,
sometimes bnnd to hand. The (J7ih
Indiana were all taken prisoners ; also
companies A, F, D and I of the ?3 1
Iowa. They wr-re taken to Taylor, it x
aa, a distance of 500 milea. The wound
ed were exchanged, among whom wa
our informant. He was wounded in the
arm. The prisoners were generally
treated well, although there appeared
to be a scarcity of provisions, tbe Con
federates having nothing to eat bat beef
and eweet potatoes. Our informant
spoke very highly of the conduct of Gen.
Burbridge, and said he did everything
that could be done to save Ida command.
After 1he 6ght was over. Gen. Wash
burn came up and drove back the enemy
rritb great loss. On the whole the en
emy are known to have lost a much
greater number than the Union forces.
The rebel plan -of defending Texas, aa
announced by the official paper at Hous
ton, is, to leave the seaboard and pen
etrate into the interior, laying waste tbe
entire country as they pass through it,
leaving nothing for the Federal troops to
subsist upon. By doing this tbe Feder
iats will be drawn away from their base
of supplies, and eventually become so
weakened at to render their capture
easy and certain. The most significant
part of the plan is, that "all traitors
(Union men) must be hung, and the sus
pected sent to the rear." This shows
tbe relentless demoniac spirit of the
i'l kfai.o, Nof. 14 A ecial from
