LOUISVILLE, January 20, 1862-7 p. M.

Major-General McCLELLAN:

The following dispatch just received from General Thomas from Mill Springs, viz:

Since my dispatch of yesterday I pursued the enemy into his intrenchments, and this morning advanced to assault him, but found he had abandoned everything and crossed the river during the night. All their artillery and ammunition, upward of eighty wagons and harness, all their commissary and quartermaster's stores and camp equipage fell into our hands. The rout is complete and I believe the enemy has dispersed. It gives me great gratification to testify to the good conduct of our troops.
