Gen. Halleck to take the Field

St. Louis, April 8. – In response to a serenade to night, Gen. Halleck said that Beauregard with an immense army advanced from Corinth and attacked the combined forces of Grant and Buel [sic]. The battle began day before yesterday and continued till late in the afternoon, with a terrible loss on both sides. We have gained a complete victory, and driven the enemy within his fortifications.

He also announced his departure for the field to-morrow morning.
