DEFEAT AND PURSUIT OP THE
Caiko, August 21. The Memphis liullrtin
says that the itebel force that entered Memphis
on Sunday morning consisted of nine regiments
of cavalry and four gnus, under Forrest In
person. Only half tho lommiu I entered the
oity, the remainder stopping outs do t prevent
their retreat from being cut oil'.
They captured 2 0 prisoners, mostly one hun
dred days' men, many of whom escaped, and
others were recaptured. The Rebels tired on
tho patients la the hospitals, and shot several
sick soldiers, and captured others, who, being
unable to keep up with the cavalry were killed,
lint for the prompt action of the Nth Iowa, tho
prisoners in the Irving Prison might have been
released and the Bulletin oilice sacked. Tbe
Kebels suddenly left the city about 11 o'clock,
followed by a considerable force of our troops,
and a light occurred near Lane's landing, last,
ing two hours, Id which the Rebels were severely
punished aud driven olf. It was here that Colonels
Star and Hendricks were wounded.
In coming through Lane's landing, the Rebels
captured two guns, a portion of the 7th Wiscon
sin Buttery, and a number of the one hundred
days' unit, but they were obliged to abandon the
guns in their retreat. After the retreat, Forrest
sent in a tlag of truce, asking an exchange of
prisoners, which was deuicd.
Lieutenant Harrington, of the 3d United States
Artillery, was killed in tho Oayoso House. Major
Lousing, of the 9th Colored Artillery, aud Lieu
