2 _____ ftuccoeiod in dislodging I ho enemy. It was then disco- c erod that iho rebel skirmishing in front was partly to t 'draw attention from a large body of rebel infantry tha* a wm advancing about six hundred yards from our left, a with the evident intention of outranking ua and falling on li our roar. There appoared to he ono full raiment, somo n aix or ojght companies, and about flftoen hundred men p not lu ranks. Captain Dubois brought his battery to boo* a upon them, and sent shell, grapo and canister dlroctly in o their midst, causing n busty and confusod retreat. A a largo body of thom raado a rush for an opening In tho ?i fence, behind which was a clump of tlmbor, and, as thoy h wero crowding through, two twolvo pounder sphorioa' | case shot wore exploded among them, leaving tho dead <j and wounded thick upon the ground. Our rear was not I for some time agaiu menaced in tbAt direction. . y Very soon after this it was soon that tho rebel cavalry > about 800 strong, was forming in tho rear of our right to I moko a charge upon tho amlmlaucos, which wore being f brought up for tho use of tlio woundod. Captain Wood's v Kansas Rangers and two companies of Second Kansas h infantry, which happened near tlio rear at this time f drew up to resist tlioin. As tho cavalry conic on the in" \ fantry opened with a volley, but did not succeed In check a lug their advance. When they were within less than two o hundred yards of our lines Cnpt. Tuttcn opened upon them f with two rounds from his entire battery, which had bopn t hastily brought Into position unknown to tho rebels. Tho fire was diagonally across the body, and each shot cut Its lane entirely through, leaving doadand woundedhorsoBand r riders mingled Indiscriminately together. The charge was 1 broken, and the rebel cavalry made a disorderly retreat to the timber. Somo twenty horses were galloping ? riderless about tho field, and were socured by our men. I Tho tight was again ronowod with vigor in tho Trout, and the lowans wero brought Into tho thick of tho contest, e giving the Knnsun* a brier resplto. They repelled an nil- 11 vonco of rcbol Infantry, which no sooner disappeared than n It was succeeded by a fresh force larger tlmu tho previous h <>no. Tlio Kansas First was again brought forward and led V to tho charge by Oenural Sweeny, Colonel Duitzler having il been wounded and taken to tho rear. c DEATH OK GENERAL LYON. k General Lyou'was standing by his hers; near the lowans, u and several among tho lattor asked for some one to lead ' them. Instantly General Lyon took command of the regi" I tnont to load it forward, but before tlicy reached thoeuemy*B lines ho was struck In the breast by a rlflo bull and fell dead from his horse. Tlio robots, on sooing tho approach ' of the Union troops, scattered and Uod boforo tho lattor ' got sufflciontly near to uso tho bayonet. All this trans- c ptrod In a very few momcuts,aud It was known to but v few that General Lyon had fallen. The announcement of a his death was not ntado to the soldiers till after tho battlo ' was over. After this but little was done on eitlior side for upwaru" c Of hall'an hour, tho rebels changing tho position of their ^ battery to higher ground in tho rear of its former location, and Captain Totten advancing his a fow rods, while Captain Dubois remained al his old post. Captuin Granger, or the regular service, do tor tod a flatdc movement in preparation against our left, and took throe com panics of the Iowa regiment to the edge of tho ravine and oautsod them to lie down in the grass and await the enemas' approach. Very soon the column approached, Captain Dubois jtotiring in grape and cauistor when they got quite near. As soon as they had come up within short range of Captain Granger, the Iowans, taking sight without rising from their position, poured in a most destructive flro of Miuie balls with territlc effect. The cannonade and musket Qro wore too much for the rebels, and they made the best possible use of their pedals back to a place Of safety. THE KEBEI, WAOON TRAIN ON FIRE. Immediately nfter this retreat flames hurst forthfrom tho rebel baggage train .which was stationed about a mile down tho crook, and from the extent of tho tiro and tho vast columns of smoke, it is supposed that tho entire wagon train, of the rebel army was destroyed, now tho fire originated is not known, but It is supposed that the rebels, fearing a defeat and rout, themselves set flro to tho wagons rather than liavo them fall Into tho hands Of tho Unionists. They wore seen to destroy some twenty wagons near their battery a short time after the (Ire burst forth in tho largo train, and it is but ren. aonable to suppose that tho latter was turned to ashes and smoke by the owners themselves. While tho conflagration was at its height the rebels made a furious attack on the Union front and right at the same time. The battery in front oponcd furiously, and sovcral pieces, which had been brought against our right, under cover of the timber, played vigorously from a cleared spaco some eight hundred yards distant. A very largo force of infantry oamo out In lino of battle order from the very place where we had for some tlmo oxpectcd Colonel Siogel to appear. No bayonet changes were made by olther side, hut tho roll of musketry and the boom of cannon were moro flcrco and continuous than at any previous time during tho day. For half an hour It was one deep, deaf cnlng roar, rosoundlng through tho air, and the Hold bocam ' canopied with deuso clouds of smoke; tho position of cannod could only be made out by the dull, red flash seen through tho fog like atmosphere, nnd all around was falling i. pitiless shower of lead and iron. Too rapid in { Succession to think of counting came the smooth whistle of the common rifle ball, the shrill buzz or tho Miniet the dull hum of the round ball, and above them all tli? sounds produced by the various descriptions of common ( munition. Kor half an hour it continued, and was ended , by the repulse of tho rebels, who returned no more to the j field. In this last scene of tho battle all tho Union force | on the field was in action, and one half our loss of the day , occurred at this time. , OPK11ATION8 OK GENERAL flKOEL'S COMMASP. "Where is Siegel ?' had boon passing from lip to lip for an hour before this attack, and lie had been anxiously looked for at tho very point where tho rebel infantry! bearing the "secession flag, liad made their appearance. As we had not hoard from hiin since the night previous- i savo by the reports of liis cannon, we were uucortnin a i to his fate,nnd fearful that we might tire upon him should i ho approach, as wa did not not kuow from what quarter to expect hiin. Our cannon ammunition was nearly ex- i liausted, and several companies of Infantry had expended i their last round of cartridges. Major Fturgis (who took | coinmauil after General tyon's deuth) ordered a retreat i , and the whole army took up its line of march for Springfield. Ambulances woro sent back wkli a flag o^ truce to gather up the dead and wounded. Tho ling was received by General McCulloch and Golomd Mcintosh, and by nine P. M. the ambulances returned, bringing all that could bo found. Tlio battle commenced a fow minutes past six A. M. and tho retcoat was ordered at eleven. With but a few intervals the batteries on both sides woro In coiislaut action throughout tho whole, ami there wore few minutes when the roll of musketry could not bo heard. To understand Colonel Siegol's position it will l>e necessary to explain more fully the situation of the rebel camp. Wilson's creek has a general southerly direction; but ut a farm calilod McNary's it makes a sharp bend to tho cast, follows an easterly course for two nnd a half miles, nnd then bonds suddenly to thu south. The Fayottevillc road crosses the creek about a mile and thieo fourths below the unncr betid. The roliol camp extended throe tulles along tho crock?two and a half in an easterly direction, and a quarter of a mile above the upper bend towards the north, and the same dlslunco below tho lower bond to" wards tho south. General Lyon's attack was made on tho western si lo, Just above the uppor bond. Colonel Siege! inarched from SprlngQold down (going south) the Kay- i cttcvillo road, left that road four mil s this side of Wil" i son's crook, and turnod to his left, wont around tho rebel i camp, came into the same road two miles beyond Wilson's 1 creek, and marched up the Kaycttavillo road t'ward tho i enemy's camp. Some who saw his command coming, | about daylight, trom the direction of Arkansas, walked out to meet him, not dreaming of tho approach ef tho | Union forces ou that side. These ho allowed to get within i bis lines, and made prisoners of them before they dis covered their mistake, lie fell upon their camp at the road, routed tlicm and took possi if ion, planting his cannon in tli - cainp and playing upon them from that ]>ositton. Ilo found and took possession or the private papers of General MoCulloch, and ono of his lieutenants was furtuuute enough to secure a bag of gold. Colouel Siege was so s .vercly pressed tliai he had to abeu'.uu i tho camp and t; kj positi." on a hill, wlmre ] be served his artillery wither and brought lbs Aeon nlratOd lire was made ( Upon his battery, killing many of his artillerymen and i noarly all his horses. A dash of infantry and cavalry was then ma le, and live of his six cannon fell into possession of the rebels. The infantry and cavalry came so hard upon him as to compel him to retreat, which ho didi bringing away nearly two hundred prisoners. His command was badly cut up and he found it impossible to make a junction with the main column. The last assault upon the main column was mado just after the retreat of Colonel Siegel, and the cannon which played upon us on i tho right were tho five that wora captured. At one lime, had a vigorous movement been made ou our part, the i rebel battery might have been takso. 1 f?r two or three days before the battle General Lyon < hanged much in appearance. Since it became apparen o him that he must abandon the Southwest or have hi riny cut to pieces, be had lost much of bis former enorg; nd decision. To one of his staff he remarkod, the oreu Dg before tho battle, "I am a man believing In present! joute, and ever since this night surprise wa burned I have had a feeling 1 cannot get ri f tliat it would result disaatrously. Through the refuu f government properly to reinforce mo I am obllgod t bamlon tho country. If I leave it without engaging th uemy the public will call mo a coward. If I cngag im I may bo defeated and my command cut to plecei am too weak to hold Sprlngilold, and yet tho pooplo wi em and that I bring about a battle with the very enom cannot keep a town against. How can this result othei rise than against us?" On tho way to the field I frequently rode near hltr lo seamed Uko one bewildered, and ofton whenaddrosse ailed to give any recognition, and aocmud totally uiu rare that ho wa spnkon to. On tho battle field ho gnv lis orders promptly, and soemod solicitous for tho wo aro of his men, but uttorly regardless of his own safotj Vhllo ho was standing whero bullets flow thickest, Jus fter his favorlto horse was shot from under him, sow f his officers Interposed and bogged that he would retir rom the spot and suek ono less exposed. Scarcely rait ng tils oyes from tho enemy lie said? "It Is well enough that I stand hero. I am satlsflod." While the lino was forming for the charge against th ubols in which ho lost liis life, General I.yon turned t J:\jorSturgi8, who stood near him, and remarked:? "I fear that tho day la lost; If Colonel Slegol had beo uocvsaful lio would have joined us boforo this. 1 thin will load this charge." Ho had boon wouudod In tho log In an early part of lb ugogonient?a flesh wound merely?from which tho bloo owed profusely. Major Sturgls during tho oonversatlo oticiMl blood on Geuoral Lyon's hat, and at first suppose e had been touching it with his hand, which was wi ,lth blood from his log. A moment after, perceiving tin l was fresh, he removed tho General's hat uud asked tl; auso of its appoarunco. "It Is nothing, Major, noihir iut a wound in tho hoad," said Geuorul Lyon, turnir way and mounting his horse. Without taking tho hi mid out to him hy Major Sturgie, ho addressed tho lowai ic was to command with? llF\,nmrd, to<u I will t*ail you t" Two minutes afterwards ho lay dead on the field, kith >y a rlflo ball through tho breast, just above the bear n deatli his features wore the same troubled and puzzle xprcssion that had boon llxod upon thorn for the pai voek. His body was brought to town in tho aftoraooi :ud will bo forwarded to his friends in Connecticut fur ii erment. The appearance of tho field throughout tho day was e soediugly gloomy. The morning was cloudy, and onco ho forenoon rain fell. Toward noon tho sun shouo ot >ut not clearly. Tho smuke from tho cannon and smi irms, with that from tho burning train, hung over tl leld, seeming liko a pall spread to cover the u 'ortunale dead. Tlio horrors of Manassas were r icwod on this battle Hold. Our wounded men woi wyonoted or struck over tho U>ad with musket hutti Vnolhcor.a Ueutenaut in tho First Missouri, tako ins oner, sirucK tour limes with a musket uuii lort f< lead. Ho rovlvod and osciped. A surgeon, who we! in the Quid after the battle, was several times shot i ind forced to retire. Later in the afternoon a Hug nice was sent to the rebel commanders, and was r lelved. Union flags wero several times waved to Induce 01 non to go forward. None were tulcon by this ruse. At tho lime the enemy woro advancing to outflank 01 eft, and wero repulsed by our cannonading, a robe lag was borno prominently in their front. The mi lorrying it was struck by a shell, which oxplnded at it ame moment. Another snatched up the banner, at vus hurrying forward when ho was killed by acauista iluit. The flag was not again seen. Most of the shot from the rebel cannon passed ove >ur heads. A few horses woro killed by round shot ar two or threo men woro badly wounded with pieces theH. With these exceptions I do not know of their a tillory doing damage. Your correspondent was standii beside his korso undor a troo In the roar of Oaf batten's battery when a six fiound shot pocsi through tho troo top not four feet above 1 lead. Thinking tlioro might bo a better place for o icrvation I changed my jiosition some twenty rod ind I was speodlly admonished of my insecurity by a itlier ball ploughing up tho ground not six foet away, at ltorally covering me with dirt. Upon tho theory th: lightning (hies not striko twice In the same placo," I k?i still, and was not troubled by any more of the same so so near me. A six pound shot produces a sound unylhii but melodious. About tho time the action commenced rodo jaist tho First Missouri regiment. One of tho si Hers, seeing my citizen's dress, cocked his gun ai brought it to bear upou mo. I ventured to ask? "What are you going to shoot mo for?" "I don't know you," was tho reply,with the gun still ou. Just then one of the soldiors asked where I had be since 1 was with thom at Boone vllle, and my aboutshoot friend lowered his rifle and disappeared. Whether the result Is a victory, a defeat or a drav battle, I loavo for tho reader to decido. Our forces tool position and hold it Ave hours. When they retIrod t juorny had boon several times reputed, and in tho la itt/ick driven from the (loll. They had burned their lis ;ago train to prevent our getting it, and when wo I. if I t Held di i not attempt to pursue us. Upwards of an lie after our departnro they returned and took possess if rendering It necessary lliat our ambulances should go u undor a flag of truce. The rebol troops outnumbered t Unionists at least four to one, and some of our officers es mate their strength us fully Fix times that of ou~s. The statements front the prisoners that wo took git litem from tw Ive to thirty thousand. Among the prisr prs was Horace II. Brand, of lloonoville, aid-decamp [Jonorul Frioe. Ho told mo tlioy had twenty-ouo thousa irnvd men and twenty pieces of artillery, but thoug nuvuiliu>.n|iuii'uil?ui mono g.JOU fcim'l Certainly they had force enough to enable them to ino always with very largo bodies of soldiery, and to bri fresh men into action each time. TUo Union force, eluding Oiloucl Siegel's command, was live thousand t hundred strong. All our men fought admirably, and would be unjust to praise any ono regiment morn th another. Some of tho oUlcers of the regular anny eh 'shod a supremo contempt for volunteers; but I he: nearly all of them speak in terms of tho highest praiso their conduct at this battle. Looking on merely as a ci lian, and not qunlrtlod to criticise in a military light could seo no diffironco between tho volunteers and t regulars, save that tho latter made their movements bettor order and with greater celerity. Tin; number of killed and wounded it is impossible state. My esiimato would tie that tlw Union loss u two hundred killod and Bix hundrod wounded, and t rebel loss danIde those figures. Our men never mov denser than In two ranks, and never showed in I trge bodi whilo tho rebels nearly always made their movent"! in strong columns uod several times in solid squares, t! presenting a line mark for our artillerymen, who w< not slow to usn it. Tho oflloial report may very mi roduco lliu figures of tho loss on both sides. It would I be a matter of surprise should they bo doubled.
