We captured 29 prisoners — a captain, 2 lieutenants, and 26 privates. My own loss was 11 killed, 88 wounded, 34 taken prisoners, making aggregate of 133. In horses, 71 killed, 87 wounded, 12 captured, making aggregate loss of horses, 170.

To His Excellency< ISHAM G. Harris, Governor of Tennessee: Sir: The present situation of affairs is such that I deem it necessary to call the attention of your Excellency to it in connexion with the movements which the enemy meditate towards Tennessee. My information cll of her contracts for the manufacture of arms and other materials of war were assigned and transferred to the Confederate Government. I am sure, General, you will appreciate and make due allowance for the difficulties that lie in my way in the work of arming the forces of Tennessee under these circumstances. I trust I shall be able with the inferior arms of the country to arm the volunteers now in, and that many will hereafter come into camp. Very respectfully, Isham G. Harris.
