The Battle in Tennessee

Special to the Chicago Times.

CAIRO, April 9.

Mr. Kendall, 51st Ill., who left the field of action on Monday, reports that Gen. Johnson [sic] was killed and Beauregard was wounded, a cannonball having shot his arm off.

There has been no arrival from Tennessee since early this morning, but one is expected every moment.

There is a rumor by way of Paducah that our forces occupy Corinth, and that the enemy is completely routed.

We have taken a large larder of provisions.

Carson, the scout, was killed early in the engagement.  Lt. Col. Canfield, 72d O., was killed and his body has arrived here.
