A cavalry affair on Sherman's rear. Kingston, Ga., May 30, 1864. We had an ugly little affair on the twenty-fifth instant, that cost the Eleventh Kentucky cavalry pretty dearly. The First and Eleventh Kentucky cavalry, commanded by Colonel Holman, a brave and daring officer, had advanced some ten miles beyond this place, which is a small county town on the Dalton and Atlanta railroad, thirty-eight miles from the former and about sixty from the latter place. Some of the enemy's cavalrhe Eleventh Kentucky, who were out foraging. On the morning of the twenty-third, our brigade, composed of said regiments, the former commanded by Colonel Adams, and the latter by Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander, and the whole under command of Colonel Holman, was ordered back to Cassville Station (a depot on said railroad about eight miles beyond this place, and about two miles south of Cassville, from which the station takes its name), to aid in protecting a train of wagons at that station.

By the eleventh of February all the army was on the railroad from Midway to Johnson's station, thereby dividing the enemy's forces, which still remained at Branchville and Charlestonon the one hand, Aiken and Augusta on the other.

As the column af cavalry. Duncan's black brigade was formed in line on both sides of the pike as follows: The Fifth regiment, Colonel Conine, on the right; the Twenty-second, Colonel Kidder, at the right centre; and the Sixth, Colonel Ames, on the left. Colonel Holman's small brigade formed the second line. In this order the troops struggled through the swampy and tangled and almost impassable woods, the rebels shelling them furiously all the distance. As our line emerged irregularly from the woods,
