Brig. Gen Solomon, fell back as far

lRespectt'ully, your obedient serv't.
-1 AMEA S. RAINS,
\lAdvices 1t,.n $pringfield are to
the effect that at present a portion
of the rebel army, under Hindman
and Rains, are at Granby mines, in
Newton county near the Arkansas
line. General Schofield is preparing
to march against them; and, as his
army is in excellent condition and
composed of the best troops in the
State, there is every reason to believe
that lie will be successful, if the
rebels wait an attack. If they do
not retreat, they will be driven out
of the State, and positions probably
occupied by our troops that wil pre
vent another inroad.
Latest advices from the rebel army
state it to be a most motley crowd of
warriors, some well aimed, but the
most bearing such weapons as could
be gathered through Arkansas.
Their number is about 12,000.-St.
Galveston, Oct 6-Five of the en
emy's vessels are laying in the har
hor, and this place is virtually in
their possession, and they can de
stroy it at pleasure. Col Cook order
ed its evacuation, which was done,
the troops taking up the line of march
the enemy shelling them all the way.
The enemy's vessels had about fifty
long range guns. We had but three
guns at the Point and two small pie
ces at the wharf. Col DeBray is in
conunand of our troops.
iMlobile, Oct 7.-A special dispatch
to the Ad vertiser and Register dated
Tupelo Oct 7, says at noon the battle
at Corinth was mlost bloody. Our
forces gained repeated successes on

7th says : laving driven in the
enemy's skirmishers, the combined
forces of Van Dorn and Price attack
ed them in their entrenchments, on
Friday, driving them out and captur
ing 9 pieces of artillery. We contin
ued repulsing themn slowly, driving
them back, until nightfall. Our loss
was heavy. IDuring the day, Phifer's
and Green's brigades suffercd the loss
of Gen. Martin killed, and Col Mc
Farland, Erwin and Moore seriously
wounded. At four o'clock Saturday
morning enemy opened withartillery
which occassioned a small loss.
Information has been received that
the enemn at Bolivar 20,000 strong,
was marching via Pocahontas on our
rear. We fell back ten miles to Cv
press Creek. Col Adams commenc
ed skirmishing with the Yankees at
Pocaholtas and fell back one mile,
when he was reinforced by Whit

and Manrv's division, which wasalso

lost 4 pieces artillery. We captured
250 prisoners at Corinth. Enemy
made no attempt to follow us from
Corinth. Nor did the Bolivar force
alter their retreat at Davis' bridge.
Van Dorn was conspicuous for his
daring, and Price, as usual, felt at
home in the leaden shower, each
eecaping unhurt. Price's command
was the first in the entrenchments.
Maury's division suffered the heaviest
loss Gen. Cabell's sustained severe
loss, and acted most gallantly. The
enemy fought determinedly, and ma

safe. No fears eutertaiined of being
followed by the crippled Yankees.
We will be quiekly organized and
ready for another combat. The kill
