Glorious Irons tbe Trans-Missis
Mr. Wagner, bearer of dispatches from
Geo. Kirby Smith, reached Mobile on the 3rd
iiist. - He states the results of the battles of
the Bth and 9th on Red Riveras follows: A
c(«nplete defeat of the enemy, with a loss es
timated by Gen. Taylor, at eight thousand in
killed, wounded and missing, but their own
admiiions put their loss at fifteen thousand.
We captured twenty-one pieces of artillery,
ten thousand stand of small arms, twelve
hundred mules, four hundred wagons, and a
large quantity, of stores.
Our loss is officially estimated at twenty
two hundred killed and wounded. Generals
Mouton and Greene were killed. Three Yan
kee Generals are reported killed. The enemy's
forces was thirty-two thousand. Ours from
eighteen to twenty thousand. Gen. Kirby
Smith directed operations. Gen. Taylor
commanded the centre, and Gen. Walker
and Mouton the wings.
On Sunday, the 17th, the enemy attempted
to cross the Red River, and were attacked a
gain and whipped worse than before, but no
particulars have been received.
Thirty steamers ef all classes ascended the
river, and were all above Alexandria, wkh
no probability of escape. Ten or twelve boats
were already blown op or burned to avoid
Mr. Wagner says soldiers and citizens re
port that Price had achieved a great victory
over Steele, by a bit of strategy which conr
pletely fooled his adversary. General Price
seemed to have fallen back in apparent disor
der, abandoning everything. When the Yan
kees reached his trains they broke ranks and
scattered to plunder. Price turned and out
them to pieces, capturing four thousand pri
soners, two hundred and fifty wagons, all
their ammunition, baggage aad supplies.
It is reported also that Steele had evacua
ted Little Rock, failing back towards the
Mississippi river
This statement is corroborated by Yankee
accounts from the Mississippi.

From Louisiana-Interesting Ac
counts of the Recent Battles
A gentleman in the service of the govern
ment, who left Shreveport, La., on the 18th
of April, and arrived in this city last evening,
has furnished us with some valuable infor
mation from the Trans-Mississippi. He cross
ed the river some sixty miles below Vioks
burg, and foupd the country on both sides of
the Mississippi, densely ipfested with jay
hawkere and Yankee negroes, who put to
their test, his utmost caution and prudence.
Besides despatches from General Kirby Smith,
Gen. Huger, and other officer's to the autho
rity in Richmond, and a private letter from
F. 1. Leavenworth, Captain of Ordnance,
commanding the Arsenal in Shreveport, he
brings copies of the news journals of that
city, from the 12th to the 15th ultimo, which
contain more information regarding the con
dition of that region than we have seen else
where for months. From the papers and let
ters above mentioned, and the oral statements
of the gentleman referred to, we are permit
ted to lay before our readers the following
Kmmary of our late battles on Red River •
The first of that series of battles occurred
Mansfield, some fifty miles below Shreve*
rt, on the Bth of April. For several days
previous, Gen. Taylor with a handful of men.
had been falling back before the advancing
forces of Banks. Having his army now in
creased to eight thousand by reinforcements,
he resolved to make a standiand try tbe issues
of battle against twepty thousand of the ene
my. The fighting was fierce and obstinate,
but numbers were compelled to yield to valor
and the enemy was palsied and broken if not
vanquished, when darkness closed the terri-
Ide jiceoe. On the 9th the battle was renewed
and raged with increasing fury during the
day, but night did not again spread its pall
orcr the battle field until the undaunted
bravery, the determined purpose, and the
wild enthusiasm of our noble soldiers had
won a glorious victory and routed tbe foe in
every part of the field. In tbe hot haste of
tup enemy to escape, every encumbrance was
cast off, all order broken up, and in a state ef
complete disintegration, the -motly croup
made their best possible speed towards Alex
andria, quickened and urged on by our pur
suing cavalry. They left in our hands 4,000
prisoners, (this number having already been
brought tn wben oar ipformant left, and it
was believed that more than twice that num
ber were actually captured,) 7,000 stand of
arms, and 32 pieces of artillery, besides a
forge harvest of dead and wounded on the I
held. We see no statement of tho number
either of our lossor of that of the enemy • but
the most profound and tender grief is express
ed by Geo. Taylor for the death of Gen. Mou
ton and for that of Gen. Thomas Green in a
subsequent battle. We also lost several Col- I
onels and other commissioned officers.
On the 13th, occurred the battle of Blair's
Landing, in which General Green was killed.
In this conflict our forces were drawn up on
both sides of the river, and bravely and suc
cessfully fought the enemy on shore and in
his gunboats, destroying several of tbe latter
and capturing many prisoners, after a great
slaughter. Both armies, after the first fight
a*t Mansfield, were largely reinforced—ours,
probably to the number of 20.000, and that of |
the enemy to more than 30,000. Numbers,
*■ however, availed tho foe but little, as he was
vanquished at every point with great loss, un
til, when our informant left, be had fallen
back to a position on Red River between Alex
andria and Fort De Russay, where bo lay un
der cover of his gunboats—Gen. Banks him
self'having retired aerese the Mississippi and
established bis headquarters at Natchez. j
These successes have reclaimed a large
portion of Lousisiana from the pollnting tread |
of the Yankees, sod rendered their tenure o(
tbe remainder very difficult and precarious;
they have greatly re animated aud reassued
the people, and fired them with a purpose
more fixed and determined than ever, never
to give up the contest till the land is redeem
ed and their independence firmly established.'
In a word, the country is sepresented as in
jpod heart, and ureil furnished with supplies.:
both for subsistence and fori war.

I The Fort Pillow AHalr—Refuta
tlosi of Yankee Slanders.
From Gov. Isham Harris,, of Tennessee,
who accompanied, and has recently reached
Atlanta, in return from the expedition of
Forrest into West Tennessee, tbe Confedera
, cy newspaper obtains the following true vei
sion of the late attack upon Fort Pillow. In
view of the perverted accounts of the Yankee
papers, this official narrative of the whole
proceeding will be found as interesting as it
is necessary to vindicate the truth of histo
r y*
Arriving in the vicinity of Fort Pillow,
Gen. Forrest, having previously arranged his
plans and issued his instructions for the at
tack, rapidly advanced his lines, and gained,
after a brief, sharp contest, the outer works
of the enemy. Having possessed himself of
this position, he threw forward a line of skir
mishers in a sort of ravine between the outer
' works and the fort, which lipe was protected
from the Federal sharpshooters by his reserve
line in the outer-defences.
Hs then sent in a flag of truce to the com
mander of the garrison, demanding the un
conditional surrender of tbe fort and garri
son, with all the stores and munitions, stating
the advantage of his position, his determina
tion, to carry the fort, and announcing that
if bis demand was not complied with, he did
not feel certain that he, himself, would be
able to control his men when they entered the
fort, after having been forced to take the
risks of assault.
Hearing, after the note was dispatched and
, before an answer to it was received, that the
1 Federals believed the demand for surrender a
rasa de guerre, and that Forrest, in person,
was not in command of the assailants, Gen.
Forrest himself rode up within hailing dis
tance, announced to the enemy in person that
he was General Forrest, and verbally deman
ded the surrender.
A reply was sent back, couched in defiant
language, declining to accede to the demand.
The assault was commenced, and in five
minutes after the bugle sounded tbe charge
the fort was in possession of our men. Our
advanced skirmishers went over the works
pell-mell, all around them, each man lifting
his fellow by the leg, and mounting on the
shoulder of their comrades until the fort was
filled with Canfederates.
. Col. Booth, commanding the garrison, was
the first man killed, and not an officer of the
negro regiment was left alive.
It is true thai a few, black and white, threw
down their arms and made signs of surren
der—but at the same time the men on each
side of them still retained their arms and
kept up a constant fire and show of resis
tance. In the heat, din and confusion of a
fire at subb closs quarters there was no chance
for discrimination. In less than five minutes
after our men scaled the esplanade, the fort
was cleared of tbe enemy, tbe main body of
whom fled to the edge of the river, leaving
tbe fort colors still flying. At the river they
.still kept up tbe fire, until the number was
fearfully reduced, and until, as General For
rest states himself, be absolutely sickened
to witness tbe slaughter. He ordered the fir
ing to cease, and dispersed his staff along the
lines with orders to that effect. It was next
' to impossible to effect an immediate cessation
of the firing; the enemy themselves still fight
ing. General Forrest rode up and down the
lines ordering the men to cease firing, and
finally stopped the carnage. The survivors of |
tbe garrison were all taken prisoners.
, The maximum aggregate force of the Fede- j
ral garrison was 800. About 500 were buried j
by Gen. Forrest's men. About fifty of their j
wounded -were paroled and sent upon a gun
boat to Memphis. Two hundred prisoners
were brought away, and among the number
about 30 negroes.
There is not the semblance of a shadow of
truth in the Federal exaggerations of whole
sale slaughter. The above are substantially
the facts of the capture, coming directly and
officially from the prominent actors iv the
bloody drama,
Wo Victory lor Grant.
A candid confession in a New Fork paper
It is refreshing, says the Petersburg Ex
press, to meet with at least one Northern pa
per, which is not afraid to speak plainly and
truthfully of affairs in tbe North. Such a pa
per is the New York Daily News, a late issue
of which has come into oar possession. Tbe
Washington correspondent of the News says
Grant has gained no victory, that his losses
have been frightful, aad that'he is as far from
Richmond as ever. Read the following:
Washington, M>y 11, 1854.
For four days we have had no end of the
exciting rumors and exaggerated reports in
relation to the great battles in Virginia. To
day the truth begins to be known, and I am
now able to send you a tolerably connected
and clear statement of what has really been
accomplished by our armies, and of what re
maios to be done, It a well for the readers
of tbe News that they have not been delnded
either by the official bulletins of tbe Secreta
ry of War, or with accounts of supposed vic
tories, such as have appeared in some of the
other papers. The simple truth is, that we
have as yet gained no victory. We are as far
from the objective point of the campaign, the
capture of Richmond, as we were a week ago
We have suffered a terrible loss in killed
and wounded, abd we have dene little more
than demonstrate the immense advantage
which Gen, Loo enjoys in bis various defen
sive positions between the Rapidaa"sad ltne
We Understand that Major Peter Otey
who tras severely wounded in the Into fish*
near few Market, aad is now at his home in
this city, speaks in very enthusiastic terms of
the gUlantry*- and efficiency of the Cadets of
the ?*. MiTf!lnst. In? that battle, he says
that nothing could exceed the precision and
-beauty of their evolutions, even under fire.
Ip the ebarge they mass, not a step was lost
nor tbeir line the least broken or irregular,
and when they explosion from tbOfr
guns was so pear simultaneous that it seemed
like a single j report. They were led by the
gallapt Major Shi|. Professor of Tactics, and I
were specially enjoined, to make no noise as
they charged, but when the foal was apcoaj
pitshed, aud so admirably jdsnein foil view
of tbe whole army, there went up a shoot
from their companions in urms, who were
spectators ef the scene, tbsi made .tbs very
heavens ring. Major Otey says there was'l
never, a better exhibition of the effect of drill '
and discipline, than that given by tbe Cadets
and it had a fine effect on the urm r.. Gen.
Breckinrige complimented'the boys very
highly for their valor and good conduct,
which contributed so muoh to the good for

How to Tan Squirrel Skins. !
Let the hides remain in lime—or ashes will
answer—until the hair can be easily removed.
Then soak a short time in clear water, after
which dry, and rub them thoroughly with
soft soap. You will find, after cleansing off
the soup, that your hides will be beautilully
