The Cincinnati Timet gleee the followiag additional ptrtteulerr or the Pittsburg battle:-* Our force* war# atalonod in the form of a semicircle Ibo right reaiug on n point north of Crump * Landing or centra being in front of tb* main road to C'orintb, and our left extending to the river in the direction of Ham. burg, four mile* north of I'ittsburg Landing. At two O'clock on tb* morning of tb* Cth 400 men of Gen. Fren. two' divlaion were attacked by tbe enemy half a mile tn adyanc* of our line*. Our men fell back on the 26th If.g. aoori,*wiftly pureuod by the enemy. Tbe advance o tbe rebele reached Col. Feabody '* brigade jurt a* the long roll was sounded and tbe men were falling into line. Real* tan oe waa but abort, and they retreated under a galling Ire until they reached tbe line* of the Second diviHtar. At tlx o'clock tbe attack bad become general along our wkol* front. The enemy in large nuinbei a drove in tbe picket* of General Sherman's division, and fell on the Forty-eighth, Fiftieth and Seventy second Ohio trgi lent*. Thoce troop* were never before inaction, end, Being *o unexpectedly attacked, made ae able a racist anc* m poeaible, but were, In common with tbe forces of Genera! Frcnti**, forced to seek support of the tr>iopu immediately in tbeir rear. At one o'clock tbe entire lino en both Bides was fully engaged. Tbe roar of cannon and asusketry was without iutcnnisFioo from the ma* centre to a petal extending half way down the iwft wing. The robeli made a desperate change on the Fourteenth Ohio battery, which, not being sufficiently eupported by infantry, fell into their hands. Onotber severe fight occurred for possession of the K ifth Ohio battel y. and three of 1U guns were taken by the enemy. Dy eleven o'clock a number of commanders of regi aaenta had fallen, and in a"mc cases not a single Cold officer remained yet the fighting continued with an earnest nere which showed that the contest en both sides was for death or victory. Fo< t by foot the ground was con tested, and finding it impossible U> drive back our centre, the enemy slackened their fire, and made vigorous efforts oa our left wing, endeavoring to outflank,and driving it to tho river bank. Tbis wing was under Gen. Uurlburl, and was composed of tbe Fourteenth, Thirty, second, Forty-fourth and Flfty-toventb Indiana. Eghth, Eighteenth and Twenty-first Illinois. [The Fourteenth Indiana regiment was not there. It is serving under General Shields in Virginia.?En.) Fronting its line? however, was tbe Fourteenth, Filly-saventh and Fcvsnty-seventh Ohio, and Fifth Ohio cavalry, of General Sherman's division For nearly two hours a sheet of flro blared from both columns, tbe rebels fighting with a vigor that was only equalled by thorn contending with tbtm. While the coulot raced the hottest the gunboat Tyler pasted up the river to n pomt oppoeite the enemy and poured id broadsides from her iiunecse guns, greatly aiding in forcing th* enemy back. Up to three o clock the batue rugod with afury thit defies donription The rebeiahad found every ailoii.pi to break our lines unavailing. They had strlven to drive in our main column, and finding that Impossible had turned all their strength upon our left foiled n that quarter, they now mads another attempt at our centre, and made every effort to rout our fores before the reinforcement, wbu.li had hcon rent for should come up. At five o'clock there was a short cssnatl< n in ins fire of the enemy, their lines falling bark fur nearly half a mile, when they suddenly wheel.d and again threw their entire foices upon our left wing, determined to make n final struggle in that quarter, but the gunboaUfjrler and Lexington poured in their ahot thick end fast wtltl terrible e(lect. Meanwhile Ucneral Wallace, who bud taken a circuitous route from Crump's lAiuling, appeared suddenly en the enemy 's right wing In the face of tbie combination of clre<imstain es the rebels felt that their enterprise for the day was a failure, and aa night waa approaching fell back until they reached an advantageous position somewhat in the rear, yet occupying the man road to Corinth The gunboats continued to throw shell after Item until out of range.

The battle on Monday era* opened by the r- beta utaaven a'elork from the Corinth road, and in half an hoar ei tended along the wholo line. At nine o'clock the sound of arlil JWry and mnaketry full/ equalled that of the previous May.

At half-past eleven the roar of the bAttle shook the earth. The Union (una were fired with all tho energy that the proepeet of the enemy's defeat Inspired, while tho rebels' Are was not so vigorous, and they evinred a desire to withdraw. They finally fell slowly back, keeping up a fire from their artillery and musketry along their whole column u they retreated. They went in excellent order, battling at every advantageous point,and delivering their Ore with considerable effect;but from all the divisions of our lines they were closely pursued, a galling tire being kept upen their rear. The enemy had now been driven beyond onr former lines, and were is full retreat for Cdrinth, pursued by our cavalry.

An mWvaI from Pittsburg Landing eaye that the rebels, In making the first attack on Sunday morniug, carried the Stare and Stri,ee and wore the federal uniform. Goneral Bregg Is reported to have been killed. Provisional Governor Johnson, of Kentucky, is wounded and was taken prisoner. It ie etated that Genera) Prentiss escaped in ibe contusion of tho rebels' retreat on tbe second day's light, Our total loss is about 7,000. This ie the estimate of the military commanders who were in the engagement. Of this number about 2,000 were taken prieonere, the balance are killed and wounded in the usual proportions. General Wallace, of Illinois, was reported dead,ae it was thought impossible that he could livo, he was, however, living on Weduesday, and improving. Ho was shot in tbe back of the ear, the bullet coming out of hie nose. Cuicuoo, April 10, 1802. A special despatch to the Chicago Tribune from Cairo says? From several gentlemen who wore on the field aftor the fight the following is gathered:? General Prentiss' brigade, consisting of the Sixty-first Illinois, Seventeenth Wisconsin, Twenty-fouth Indiana and Seventy-first Ohio, were attacked whilo eating their breakfast by what seemed to be tbe entire rebel force. General Prentiss had no artillery,and his brigado was nearly cut to pieces and forced to retire. Goneral Prentiss and many of bis men were taken prisoners. At twelve o'clock tho entire line was engaged,hut eoon in full retreat. At four o'clock the enemy had taken Schwartz's buttery of lix gnns, Dresden's battery of four guDS, and Waterbauses battery, aleo two Ohio batteries,name not known. Thousands of our soldiers who had taken refuge under (he bank of the river urteriy refused to Oght, and, in feet, they could not.ee officers and men were mixed in inextricable confusion. The army et this time seemed to be utterly defeated. At this juncture, the gunboats Lexington and Tyler open* ed a tremendous (ire of shot and shell upon tne enemy, and kept it up every half hour during the night. Soino of the shells set the woods on fire and many dead rebels were burned. At seven in tbe evening the hiring bad generally ceased. About midnight the rebels attempted to plant a battery within three hundred yards of our siege guns but were driven away by the gunboats and siege guns., supported by three regiments of (Sen. Mitchell's division, which had arrived and crossed tbe river about six in tbe evening Our informants persist in estimating our lass on Sunday at 3,000 killed and 0,000 wounded as being a low Ogure. During the night tbe rebels were reinforced by Ocncrula Van Dorn and Price, from Arkansas, with avery large force. Daneral Lewie Wallace came up with the Kievenih and Twenty-third Indiana. Forty-fourth Illinois and Light h Missouri and Mil'anl>; battery.and iu tho morning fierce y attacked the enemy's left wing. They went into the tight at the double quick with tremendous shouts nnd did horrible execution. By ten o'clock they had driven lb* rebels tack two mile". At about ten o'clock the rebels wero rcmforcedjW.il fore few m.nutei our men were forced to yield. The other divisions of C.enerul flucU s army now appeared, and at once tiecamo fully engaged.

O r informants say that they could ride through tbe battle field where our forces were posted, but the dead were so thick in the enemy 's lines Hint they could not do It there They assure ue that the rebels occupied our camp* on Sunday night and took care of our aiok and wounded, destroying nothing?expecting confidently to have our entire army the next day. TLcy thought tbe battle already fought and w< n. On Monday Oencral Mclieruond cut his way through the enemy that hat had surrounded him. Most of hie troops behaved with great gallantry; hut the fiftieth Ohio were ordered to the rear in disgrace, for refusing to fight. Our infoamants state that John C. Breckinridge n Uken prisoner.

There wee no relaxation In the pursuit. At the last accounts the cavalry were eleven milee 'rom the river,still following. The fugitives, exhausted, lay down and wait to he taken prisoners. We can get no estimate of our loss. It is Immense, however. Some of our regiments had not above 100 or 300 left, General Prentlsa displayed conspicuous bravery dur.DK the Oral part of tha engagement, and bgfore he was talcgn ha had just led a gallant charge of one thousand men against a superior force of the enemy. Be waa ropulsed and received a musket ball in the arm, at the same time bis horse was killed. Before be could extricate himself the enemy were upon him. 1 am informed, on authority direct from the rebel camp, that Boauregard made his advance on Friday to a point within a few milaa of Gen. Grant's position, bore formed hia line of battle, and during tba night resumed his march, coming upon our forces before daybreek, completely surprising them. The only wonder ie-tbat n rout of our army did not ensue at once. General Hurlburt, whose division was in reserve, made himself the main prop on which the fortunes of the day hung, lie acted with the utmost promptness. General A. P. Johnson was killed in the forenoon of the second day's fight, during the attack on his position by our forces, while endeavoring to rally his men. Apparently fearless of danger, he rode along the entlre front, waving hie sword, shouting to his dismayed ufB cors aud frightened men. When the rout was at iffe height a cannon oall struck him, crushing bis skull and killing him instantly. His body was found by our pursuing troops and brought to General Nelson's tent.
