swept the line through a storm of fire, over the hill, Across the intervening ravine and up the slope occupied by the enemy. Nothing could withstand it. The enemy broke and fled for a half mile, hotly pursued until he reached the shelter of his batteries. Well did the Kentuckians sustain that day their honor and their fame! Of the little band of officers who started on that forlorn hope but one was unscathed, the gallant Breckinridge himself. Colonel Hawkins was wounded in the face; Captain Allen's leg was torn to pieces by a shell; the horses of the fearless boy, J. Cabell Breckinridge, and of the adjutant-general were killed under them, and General Johnston was lifted dying from his saddle. It may be doubted whether the success, brilliant as it was, decisive as it was, compensated for the loss of the great captain. While the dramatic effect of this description is heightened by the statement that General Johnston received his death-wound in this charge, his biographer says

Woodsonville. I caused wires connecting with the portable battery that I carried with me to be attached to the telegraph line near Horse Cave and intercepted a number of dispatches. At Barren [Green] river, I detached three companies under Capt. Jack Allen to move forward rapidly and destroy the Salt river bridge, that the troops along the line of the railroad might be prevented from returning to Louisville. On the following morning I moved on toward Lebanon, distant 35 miles from Barren [Gl stores, I destroyed While in Lebanon I ascertained from telegraph dispatches that I intercepted, that the force which had been started from Lebanon Junction to reinforce Lieutenant-Colonel Johnson had met and driven back the force under Capt. Jack Allen, killing one of the men and preventing him from accomplishing the purpose for which he had been detached. I proceeded from Lebanon on the following day through Springfield to Mackville, at which point I was attacked by Home Guards. Two of m

the cavalry of General Marshall and Col. John H. Morgan, but the nature of the country not being favorable for cavalry operations, their resistance availed but little beyond preventing his movement westward, had he so designed. On September 27th a portion of Morgan's cavalry under Col. Basil W. Duke, aiming to cross the Ohio at Augusta for a demonstration against Cincinnati, had a severe engagement in the streets of that town with the home guards, who fired from the houses, causing a loss of twenty per cent of his force, with a much heavier loss to the enemy. Among his killed were Capts. Samuel D. Morgan (a cousin of Col. John H. Morgan), Allen and Kennett, and Lieuts. Greenbury Roberts, George White, Rogers, King and William Courtland Prentice, son of George D. Prentice, editor of the Louisville Journal. This was the only engagement which occurred on the Ohio during the campaign, although previously Col. R. M. Gano, of Morgan's cavalry, had captured Maysville without a fight.

Arrival of refugees from Kentucky. Mobile, Sept. 30. --A dispatch yesterday from Clarksburg says Judge Munroe and son, and McKee and Haldeman, of the Louisville Courier, had arrived there, as refugees from Louisville. Breckinridge, Clay, Preston, and other distinguished Kentuckians, had also escaped. Jack Allen has joined Buckner with 300, Humphrey Marshall with 800. Johnston's army is moving up the river from Columbus. Somebody will be hurt.
and judgment, and a coolness and bravery, as well as fact, possessed by few, and should stamp the man who could do it as a military commander of no ordinary capacity. His subsequent exploits, some of which have been given to the public, and an account of others which we are promised, fully prove him to be this commander. Captain Morgan's squadron consists now of four companies, viz: his own, the Lexington Rifles, which is Company A; Company B, Captain Thomas W. Allen, whose brother, Jack Allen, is on General Breckinridge's staff; Company C, Captain Bowles, and Company D, Captain Churchwell; numbering in all about four hundred and fifty men. Morgan commands as the senior Captain, having declined a superior appointment, because he had magnanimously pledged himself to remain with and share the fate of his brave followers. His command wear the plain costume of private citizens, and Captain Morgan himself is without any distinguishing mark, and always rides with his rifle in hand an
