J. 33. GREGG. From Lit lie Rock. LITTLE ROCK, Ark., May 21, Ever hince the return of Gen'l ris army from the Oucliita, the been full of rumors of the movements of the enemy--one would bat Little Rock aud tbe entire Vrkiinsas, was about to be wrenched ur hands by the rebel invaders. ibillty of any serious disaster to long its defensive line has never el by those who know tbe country ispositions made to hold it. Our nay be attacked, but Little Rock ae taken by auy force the enemy o mass against it. Fort Smith is iid amply garrisoned, and as it mainly i'or supplies on what is sent his point, there is no doubt but, rmy there would severely suffer in o m m u n i c a t i o n should be reat length of time. Pine Bluff is ortified, and as it UHS already been essfully defended against two assaults, ·ill, w i t h its increased garrison, n disturbed. Tbo railroad from this o Duval's Bluffs mid the White 'ie line by which our communication ie Mississippi is maintained. It is je Salme river, we have information ie infantry have fallen back, beyond ue of the Ouchita river, while Lbe d force of Logan, Cabell and Shelby overing about for the purpose of ig the country in our renr. There oubl but that Shelby has crossed ausas river ab9ut JOO miles above :e is carefully watched by our any attempt is made toward our e will bo summarily disposed of. jiu Shelby will try to work h i er, bas given them a keen appetite ueh enterprises. If Shelby does mov orth, and the cavalry re-en tbrcements ve here, that are expected, it will ast hostile visit his armed force ako to their old homes. There have been some changes ODB. made in this Department. imbnll, commanding a division has lieved, and Gen'l West has assumed and of a division. Tbe cavalry aa been broken up aud assigned Tides to th© remaining divisions. ussey having reported for duty, iigned to a brigade of cavalry in vision.

Any success: pends on ery. iful movement in Arkansas lnds , on « adequate force of .nted, infantry. Our army may »,· but it is impossible to subsist thout tne protection to trains that a men only, can give. Moreover, 5 have more than 0,000 mounted bile infantry will whip them in a they are unable to pursue. la othe words, fighting in this" country, is meeting of men massed for deadly counter, but it is a system of whack." It is a dash and a run. enemy fly from point to point and weakest. I am satisfied that Gen. has done every thing in his power up his cavalry, but the fact is that late expedition, that force was but better than an incubus. · Yon will see from the papers I lhat a. Pubho Supper was tendered St ed to Jteele .by the State officers and Onion i men of this place. I am that all classes of Union people are illy satisn'ed with the present lon of affairs in this Department bat while every lacility is given for people to resume their loyal relationship under the Proclamation of the yet rigid enforcement of law is made among them. ^oue The .Legislature is still in session. act an able body, but I thiuk is alriotic. It means well enough, but ors under the impression lhat the he world are upon it, and that the o be seriously affected by its Legislation. t h:ia long since accomplished all
