EEPADQUARTZBB OP Amu OF SOUTSWIEIT,
Pea Ridge; Arkansas f March 9th.
Gureirar:—Cle Thuriulay the 15th inst., the
enemy commenced an attack on my right,
Assailing and following the rear guard of de
latchMentii under General. Siegel to my main
lines on Sugar Creek Hollows, bid ceased. firing
when he met my reintorcements about four
o'clock, P. n. During the night I became con
vinced that he had moved on so as to attack
my right or rear. Therefore early on the 9th
I ordered a change , of t.he front on my right,
which thus becoming, my left still rested on
Sugar Creek 'lleildw•; this brought my. Rae
across Pea Ridge with ray new right resting on
the head of Cross Timber Hollow, which is the
head of Big Sugar Creek:
I dab ordered art Sffiiinee of ca*ryiuld light
artillery 'under Col. Osterhans, with orders to
attack and break_ whatever he supposed would
be the ••reinfdreeff line 'of the enemy. This
movement Was in progress when the enemy,
at 11 A. x., commenced the attack on my right.
The fight continued warmly at these points
during the day, the enemy having gained the
point held in command by Col. Qux, at Come
Timber hollow, bat was entirely repulsed with
the fall - olkthe rebel commander McCulloch in
the centre.,,ty the forces under Col. Jeff. C.
Davis, of Missouri.
The plan of the attack on the centre was
gallantly carried forward by Col. Oaterhans,
who was immediately'stistainedandsupermded
by Col. Davis' entire division, supported also
by Gen. fiigel's command, which hadremained
tin near the close of the day on the left. Col-
Carr's division held the right under a galling
and continuous fire all day. •
In the evening, the firing having entirely
ceased in the centre and the right, being now
on the left, I now reinforced the right by a
portion of 2nd division, mder Gen. Asboth.
Before the day closed I was convinced that the
enemy had concentrated his main force on the
right, therefore, I commenced another change
of front forward, so as to face on the enemy
where he had deployed on my right flank in
strong million.. The change had been partially
effected, but was. fully in progress when, at
sunrise bu the /Ali,' my right and centre re
newed the -firing, which :was immediately an
ewered. by -the enemy...with renewed energy
along tbsiwhole extent of Igraine.
„Mt lifft4stier.Gent.RilLeil,,incered: does to
. the r Wlfir.?„oo3apied -bttke.. enemy; ddrin,gltha
from the heights, and advancing steadilyto-
wards the hollows. I immediately ordered the
centre and right wings forward. The right
Wing turniruz the left of the enemy and crow=
firing in his centre .: This final position placed
the enemy In the area a circle. A. charge of
infantry, extending throughout the whole line,
oompletely, routed the entire rebel force, which
retired in coinpleteitonfusion; litifratber irately,
,through the deep; impassatde defiles of 'cross
timbers. Our. low le beavy, sad.that of . the
enemy can never ; be ascertained, for the dead
'atescattered over a large field. Their wounded,
too, may many of them perlitli.
The foe- is scattered in all directions; but I
think his main , force . has returned Boston
.mountains., Lien-Rigel follows the enemy to
Belleville, while my cavalry is purstdng him
toward the mountains, scouring the country;'
-kluging in prisoners, and trying to find the
rebel Maj. Gen. Van Dorn, who had command
or the entire force of the enemy at the battle
of Peaßidge. I have not as yet statements of
the dead and wounded, so as to justify a re
port, but will refer= you to a despatch which I
will forward very soon. ,
The officers and soldiers under my com
mand have displayed such unusual gallantry
that I hardly dare to make a diatinction.
I must, however, name the commanders of
the divisions, General Sigel, who , gallantly
led the right and drove back the left wing of
the, enemy and Gen. Ashbothoiiho was wounded
in the arm in his gallant effort to reinforce the
right; Colonel and acting Brig.. Gen. Davis,
whb commanded the centre when McCulloch
fell on the seventh, and passed forward the
centre on the eighth • Colonel and acting Brig
adier General Carr, who is also wounded In the
arm and was under the continuous fire of the
enemy, during the two hardest days of the
struggle. Illinois, Indiana, lowa, Ohio and
Missouri may proudly share the Minor of the
victory which their gallant heroes won
over the combined forces of Van Dorn,
Price and McCulloch at Pea . Ridge, in the
mountains of Arkansas.
I have the honor to be, General, your servant,

simply to allude to a fact which he thought was
very reprehensible to that department. lie
made nu inquiry at all when the Norfolk navy
yard was abandoned. No inquiry was made
into that or anything else.
BE, Loma, March 11
He moved that the resolution be referred to
the Committee on the conduct of the War.—
Mr. WILSON (Mass.,) from teb Military Com
mittee, repor t ed joint resolution authorising
the Se cretary of War to accept the moneys ap
propriated by any state for -the payment of
volunteers, and apply the same as desired by
the state. •
On motion of Mr. Fisanwasr, (Me.,) the bill
providing for the purchase of coin, was taken
Mr. FRMINDIN offered an amendment to in
crease the amount of deposits provided for in
the treasury note uill at twenty-five millions,
to fifty millions.
The morning hour having expired, the con
fiscation bill was taken up.
Mr. Calms ' (Vs .,) proceeded to speak at
length against the bill. He contended that it
was unconstitutional and the Supreme Court
would have pronounced "it so if ever the cave
came before them. Such a sweeping proportion
—so unjust and cruel a measure was calculated
to continue the war forever. He contended
that if slaves were emancipated the final result
could be either their extermination or re.
enslavement. He denied that the Consti
tution was any the less binding in time
of war than in time of peace. He quo
ted from the President's inaugural and other
messages; the proclamations of General Sher
man, General Halleck and General Burn
side, and referred to the resolution• passed by
ongress to show that the Government never
intended to make war against slavery. The
leaders of the rebellion should be sung, but
the great masses should be granted pardon.
He thought that if a proclamation of am
nasty was made, we could have peace in
ninety days. He said' that intimations • had
been made against his own loyalty by
those who think in order to be loyal, a man
must be an Abolitionist, yet he had perilled his
all in defence of the Constitution. He had
stood in the Capitol of his own State, amid the
jeers and threats of a mob, and when assassins
sought his life, on the 80th of April, 1861, a
mob of not leas than a hundred men or devils
came to his lodgings with a rope to hang him.
He stood here to-day in the Nation's Capitol to
defend the. Constitution from attecka from any
quarter, and was prepared to sacrifice his life
The Senate then resumed the conddinatie
of the bill for - the purchase of ooin arid piered It
