Little Rock:

Major Doudna, Ninth Kansas, has returned from scout toward Arkansas, bringing one bushwhacker and twenty-five head of cattle. He found difficulty in crossing Big and Little Logan and beyond Mill Bayou found a steam not fordable, so he did not scout the country on the Bayou Metoe. He says it is reported that Dobbin has 500 men east of the river opposite Mount Adams, intending to capture a boat. Parsons has a bridge south of the Arkansas near the post.
