d by sickness, was everywhere present, and commanded his company in the most admirable manner. Captain Lebair, company E, (color company,) did splendid service, and seized and carried the colors when the sergeant bearing them was shot down. Captain Childs, company G, wounded by a shell early in the morning, was prevented from taking further part in the action of the day.

Saturday, the twenty-third instant, the Seventh Kentucky cavalry, under Col. Metcalfe, together with a battalion of Houck's Third Tennessee regiment, under Lieut.-Colonel Childs, attacked the enemy on Big Hill, in Rockcastle County. Col. Metcalfe led the attack with much gallantry, but had the mortification to find that not more thort their names and rank to the Adjutant-General at these headquarters, and to hold them subject to orders. The conduct of the Tennessee battalion, under Lieut.-Col. Childs, presents a refreshing contrast to the foregoing. They met the enemy bravely, checked his advance, rescued Col. Metcalfe, abandoned by his own regiment, and though too few to retrieve the action, at least saved the honor of our arms. Lieut.-Colonel Childs will accept the thanks of the Major-General, and convey to his officers and soldiers his high appreciation of their gallantry and good conduct. By order of Major-General Nelson.
