J R Haughton, a constable, was shot and killed in New Orleans on the 14th instant, by a notorious character named Bob Johnson.
health, well dressed, fine uniforms, &c. I had a long conversation with them. I think Col. Bird is rather on the anxious seat, and tired of Lincolndom and the laws passed by Abraham's Congress. Col. S. appeared better satisfied, and said the North had done nothing that was not right. I disputed the remark; but we had not met to talk politics, so we said no more. I inquired after our friends from Tennessee generally, and found that they were well. Jim Brownlow is Lieutenant Colonel of Bob Johnson's regiment. Strange for Brownlow's son and Andrew Johnson's to lie down together. I learned that Dan Trewitt, of Hamilton county, and Lieut. Bogard, of Philadelphia, Monroe county, were aids of Brig. Gen. Spear. Clift, from Hamilton, was organizing the 7th regiment. R. M. Edwards was over there, getting up a mounted regiment, to get after McLean's regiment. Young Pickens, who got his hand nearly cut off at Strawberry Plains Bridge, holds an office in one of the regiments. I could hea
From the Southwest. Chattanooga, April 4. --Nothing additional from the front this evening. Skirmishes with the enemy's pickets are of daily occurrence, but a general engagement is not considered imminent. A freight train ran off near Cumberland Mountain on the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad to-day. No lives lost. Bob Johnson, son of Andrew Johnson, is reported captured by our cavalry at Triune. Jackson, April 4-- Reports from Port Hudson state that Banks has fallen back. One division of his army is at Baton Rouge, the rest down the river. The Appeal has received Chicago dater of the 27th. The papers state that great consternation prevails in Kentucky on account of the advance of the Confederates on Lexington. Troops are reaching Cincinnati freshly. Burnside is in command, but is too sick to take the field. Senatobia, April 4--Richardson's guerrillas fought a regiment of the enemy at Summerville, killing and wounding eighty. It is stated t
Andy Johnson and his son--Ex-Governor Brown Chattanooga, May 11. --All quiet in front. No prospects of a battle. Andrew Johnson has been commissioned as Major-General in the Yankee army, with authority to organize a force of 5,000 Tennesseeans and ten thousand niggers. When one regiment of the latter has been organized, Williamson's cavalry will be disbanded. Bob Johnson, son of Andy, has been promoted to Brigadier. Ex-Governor Neil S. Brown, of Tenn., has come through the lines from Nashville, and is now at Pulaski. The Daily Press, of the 9th, contains a telegram relative to the late battles in Virginia. The loss of the Federals in Sedgwick's command alone, it says, was 5,000 men. In an editorial, the Press remarks that Hooker, having changed his base, tells the story that he was defeated. "Our first reports were base fabrications. " "The picture is frightful. It adds to the chronology of our sanguinary defeats in the East." The Press reports the "rebel" lo
e scout of the enemy advancing proved to be correct, and a message was received from Colonel Ward that he was attacked Colonel Grigsby was sent to reinforce him, and succeeded in driving the Yankees back in great confusion upon their reinforcements. My regiment lost two mortally wounded and two others slightly. Five of the Yankees were known to be killed and a number wounded, with about fifteen prisoners. No tidings heard of the 2d brigade until dark, when they arrived and reported that Col. Johnson, commanding and experienced great difficulty in crossing and that in addition to the precipitous banks and of all boats or other means of transportation, the enemy were hovering on the river and harassing him as far as they could. He was however, quite successful in driving them back. Yesterday a young man, calling himself Chas Rogers, dressed in full Confederate uniform, came into our lines and expressed a desire to join our command. I suspicioned him, and after a few questions, I wa
North Alabama --At the last accounts the Federal had not crossed the Tennessee river. They had labelled the south side of the river at Whitesburg because they had been fired into at that place by some Confederates. The Federal force at Huntsville is reported to of fifteen regiments, infantry and cavalry, under command of Brigadier General Turshin, Col. Stanley, and the Tennessee and traitors, Bob Johnson, John B. Brownlow, and Jordan
es, &c., and are running them all down towards Knoxville. In many instances they have the wheat ground before it is sent off. We also have a report that Burnside has issued an order for the arrest of all prisoners paroled at Vicksburg who may be found within that acres. This it will be noticed is a cute Yankee trick, as these men have for the most part been exchanged, but being where they cannot get the information remain at home in fancied security. Prisoners report the death of Col. Bob Johnson, Andy Johnson's second son. He is said to have died at Huntsville, Ala., in a drunken fit. It will be recollected that his oldest son was thrown from his horse in Nashville some five or six months ago and killed while on a drunken frolic. Thus is the arch traitor reaping the reward of his villainy. A gentleman just arrived, and perfectly reliable, states that he left Jonesboro' yesterday evening, and reports that no Yankees were nearer than five miles west of that place at the time he
