From Tennessee. an interesting story — the late defeat — Faith in the success of our cause. [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch] Knoxville, Tenn., Jan. 30, 1862. I yesterday conversed with a young man in the General Hospital at this place, whose story is interesting. His name is W. L. Richardson; he is a native of Choctaw county, Mississippi; he was eighteen years old the 5th of last September. Some two years ago he left home and proceeded to St. Louis to engage in the service of a fur company, and go on an expedition to the Rocky Mountains Falling in this, he went up into Minnesota, and settled near St. Paul. When the present war broke out he started back to Mississippi. Arriving at St. Joseph, Missouri, he was unable to get farther; he volunteered in the Northern army, expecting to be sent to Fort Smith, Arkansas, and intending to desert from that place and make his way to Mississippi. He was attached to the 2d Missouri regiment, Col. Martin. Instead
