Extract of a kttctfrom Katchez
Tr Great 'iSTcws reached here, last night,--
There were eight .British Officers brought to
this place as prisoners, who say themselves
that on the 8 th day of tins month the British
i . . . ...
made an attempt to storm Jackson's Works,
and were repulsed with the loss of from 12
to 1500 in killed, wounded and prisoners,
the prisoners now on their wv for this place.
Our own loss was but small " The British
must have lost near 2000, since there own
officers acknowledge the loss oftl500 Jaclc
son sufTcretl them to approach near the works
before he opened his destructive fire on them.
