Soma of the wounded officers now P ,n our lines speak of their men as cowards of the P worst description, and say that the loss of so many officers is owing to tbo cowardice of the mon, necessitating the forratr constantly to expose themselves. The panlo among tho fleeing rebels ^ was increased by the stories of Northern barbarity that t havo constantly been related by the officers to the rank and file. The roads were strewn with broken and disabled wagons, arms, provisions and various munitions Of war. Several pieces of artillery were found a few days since with the woodwork of tho carriages destroyed by Are and the guns carefully spiked. Two of tbcm aro bronze rifled twolvs-poundars, of new and beautiful pattern*. The whole will l>e renvunted as speedily as possible. Colonel F. A. Hector's regiment of Arkansas militia was dlabandod by order of tb* commanding officer on tbe afternoon subsequent to tho battle. Colonel Hector bo cam* disgusted and disheartened after the defeat, and, r of renting about fourteen miles from the scene of actleu, ordered his men to stack their arms and disperse for their homes. Lieutenant Ttrsdley, of Haydes's battery, yesterday went tn search of these abandoned weapons, and, after a long and toilsome march, found them in a narrow ravine, stacked and without guard. TVagons sent out to day to bring them in have Just returned with upwards of 200 guns. In tbe action of the 7th, a gun and a caisson belonging (V M>v ivwn f not unu?i j inrvnuiv UKRi'imi, HIIU "Cl?

Carpenter, tinder a heavy fire from the enemy's infantry, succeeded in tha attempt, and safely removed both the gun and caisson. Reaching the rear, It was noticed that there were some burning gun wads among several loaded shell and care shot, with their cartridges, in one of the caisson chests, momoutly threatening an explosion. Captain Carpeuler ordered the burning wads to be re. movod, and with his own hands aided in separating them from the deadly materials with which they wero inclose contact. By his promptness and coolness ho saved all around from the eonse<iuences of a fearful explosion. In nearly every Instance where they fell into the hands of tho enemy our dead and wounded were robbed of everything valuable about them. An artilleryman named Yoet. in Ilayden'e battery, waa wounded and left upon the field at the lime the battery was withdrawn, on the afternoon of the 7tb. Seeing the enemy approaching, he took out Me wallet, and, rernov irg fifty dollars in Treasury rotes, and pla tig them in his tuouth, he ro' turned to his pocket the wallet containing a small amount in eilver ana two or wree postage tan ; A few mo 1 raents Inter hie wallet nu taken by the rebole, but hie , fifty dollars remained untouched and aro still In hie < possession.

In addition to tke eight of the Third Iowa cavalry that wore ' scalped on the field, we have reports of several others I scalpod on other parts or the ground.

General Price's Official Report. ilKADCfl ARTKKH. M.S. G.,1 Camp ow Cots Crrkk , Arkansas, Feb. 26.1862. J o Ais Kxcellency C. F. Jacmor, Governor of Missouri:? Sir?I have the honor to lay bsfnre you an account of he circumstances surrounding my command within the est two wosks, compelling mc to cvacuato Spriugfleld nd retreat beyond the State lino Into the territory of trkansaa, the intclligwnco of which lu*n<> doubt reached 'OU. About the latter part ol 'December I loft my camp on ae river, St. Clair county, fell back aud to k up my luartera at Springfield for the purport# of being w ithin each of supplies, protecting that portion of our Slate rum both Houie Guard derue(tattoos and federal inva. don, m well as to secure a most valuable jvotut for miliary movement*. At Spriugtiehl I received from Grand Haze considerable supplies of clothing, camp and garrlon equipage, and, baring built but*,our soldier* were aa totafortable *e circumelancet would permit. I am 'leased to say few complaints were oltber made or loard. Missouri having been admitted as an equal mem ier of tbo Confi'derato Plates, and bavlng my coinmaud nuch augmented by recruits, I wns enabled to raise and iquip about 4,OUO men for theConfederate ccrvico. A irlgatleof these,eonsisting of two regiments of infantry, me regiment of cavalry and two light batteries of aridery, have bsen tendered the Confederate government. About the latter part of January my scouts reported bat tl.e enemy were concentrating in forco at Kolla, ind stiortly thereafter tboy occupied l.obation. Hoivving that this movement could be for no oilier lurp'sotban to attack me, and knowing that my com r.snd was inadequate for suck smcesslul rtr.islancu as .he mtetest* of my Hrmy und the cause demanded, I ipiesled to the commanders of the Confederate troops in tikatisas to come to my assistance. This, from currcs xniutt'cc, I was led confidently to cx|>cct, and, relying ipon It , I hold my positiou to tha very last nmnicnt, nid, aa the sequel proved, almost too long, for on Wed len'r.y, February 12, my pickets were ililveu In,and cported the enemy odvam mg upon me in force. No (source was now left me except retre.t, without hazard ng all with greatly unequal number* upon the result if one engagamonl.

My loss Ires not exceed four to six killed, and some fifteen or tlghlceii wounded. That of the enemy wo know to he en times as great.
