Mobile, Dec. 18
   On the 18th our forces, on the Eastern shore, under Gens. Liddell, Colvin, Clahton and Armistead, pursued and severely punished the Pollard raiders and drove them beyond Pine Barren Creek, capturing a part of their transportation and supplies.
   The road for ten miles were strewn with the enemy's dead.
   The damage to the Mobile & Great Northern Road inconsiderable, and will shortly be repaired.
   The public buildings at Pollard were burned.
