FORT GIBSON C. N., December 29, 1863.
Brigadier-General MCNEIL, Fort Smith:
By my scout, just in from Maysville, I learn that the enemy have broken up, and those still in the Nation are in small squads, trying to make their escape. It is reported that part of Quantrill's men went back across the Arkansas River, and that part of them are on Cowskin Creek, near the Butler Hills, on the Missouri and Arkansas line.
