The colonel, myself, and two men galloped to the depot, and secured the telegraph-operator, his instruments, books, etc. Among the papers found are several orders of Gen. Buell's, some in cipher, which please find enclosed. We secured also, a few minutes after, as it came in, an engine and tender, carrying a number of carpenters to repair the road; they were made prisoners, but were released as we left the town. As soon as the citizens were made aware that we were confederate troops, facility was afforded us to carry out our plans. Upon securing the engine, we at once commenced to accumulate all the rolling-stock (a large quantity) on the main track, preparat

Grant and Major-Gen. Buell, and the officers and men of their respective commands, for the bravery and endurance with which they sustained the general attacks of the enemy on the sixth, and for the heroic manner in which, on the seventh inst., they defeated and routed the entire rebel army. The soldiers ofter discipline and order. These are as essential to the success as to the health of the army, and without them, we cannot long expect to be victorious; but with them, we can march forward to new fields of honor and glory, till this wicked rebellion is completely crushed out, and peace restored to our country. 3.
