Last Saturday our regiment had a hard fight with Forrest south of tho Tullahatob- io river 2-5 milca south of Holly Springs. Brig. General Hatch Gth and 9th Illinois and 2d Iowa cavalry wero on- gngetl Tmr with ttrtillery on both sides. Hatch finally got hia back up and ordered the boys to charge across an open field and ditilodgo the enemy from their po- sition which was a formidable one. Our b iys carried the in fine dis- 1 idgiug nnd cjmpletoly routing tho enemy who were commanded by Forrett in per- Ourlods wus thirty killed and wound- ed from tho threo rogimcuts. Colonel Co m met with a narrow a piece of a shell par-sing through his pants. Ser- geant Guild of my c unpany was seriously but not fatally wounded in the shoulder. This ia the first time those two celebra- ted cavalry Hatch and havo over been pit to I against each we feel proud to think tho cavalry whip- ped them almost before the infantry fired a gun. It is rather a atrange coincidence that Lo'.h Hutch and Forrest were suffer- ing from unhealed wounds nnd both were on the field in bnggiei not being able to ride in the though our boys hurried Forrest so that he abandoned his buggy which with the horses nnd one of his staff officers fell into our ban After pursu- ing them four miles night coming on they abaml mod the ch ise an I fell hack to their former where they were at last Negro Soldiers to toe Treated as Pris- oners of War by the Itebels. The fallowing is from the Richmond Ex- aminer of the 19th. It shows that the reb- els have receded from their position con- cerning colored and will hereafter treat them as prisoners of war. We may that tho exchange of prisoners will soon be resumed. We quote the chaste and amiable Negroe outside of the Oonfed employed to do the work of pillage and slaughter of the Yankee coin who sits in the usurped at Wash- are henceforth not to be considered fit subjects for the bayonet and knife after but aro to be treo ed as prisoners of war. Yesterday an or- der from tbe Provost Marshal's sanctioned by the Secretary of was received at Castle Thunder. The pur- port was that tho negro prisoners taken in Yankee whether free or if they hailed from Maryland or wore not to be claimed as property in case they wero but they were tube treated as negroes usually aro in case they are declared their freedom. A citizen of Maryland or Delaware cannot claim his stolen or impressed or impressed by tlie from tho fact that Maryland and Delaware arc within tlie limita of the kingdom of Old and not within the limits of the Confederate States. This decision is ta- ken as and aa it eminatcs from the Provost Marshal's with the sanction of the War we take it as final. Every negro who comes here as a prisoner of war proclaims himself as a free man. Consequently the order allud- ed to will save a groat deal of litigation. bo it remembered that tho slaves of Maryland and Delaware in tho army of Grant are freedmcn. That's enough to make them freedmen forever. LOCAL HAI-.KOAD DIHKG1ORV. AHIUVAL AND DUMHTOBK OF TRAINS. Chicago Northwestern. From Chicago__2 06 SI ....9.60 .....IMiO A M Ft.
