al Beauregard:] General: Time has only enabled us thus far to make a partial examination of the country on the west of Saltillo, and to-morrow I hope to be able to make a complete reconnaissance of that portion lying on the east and south of Town Creek. I have found five creeks running on the west side of Saltillo in a southeasterly direction, separated from each other by ridges, where water can generally be reached by digging from 12 to 22 feet, thus promising an abundant supply of water. ne of defense east and west, the latter would be crossed at intervals by extensive boggy bottoms, rendering the roads to the camps very bad. From all accounts I am in hopes of finding to-morrow a favorable position on the south and west side of Town Creek, where, it is said, the ground is high and the water easily accessible. Whatever may be your decision as to the particular locality, you may be assured of an ample supply of water around Saltillo, with quite a number of springs. I will ma

, and resumed their movement towards Tuscumbia, opposed at every step by Roddy, who skirmished so effectively with the head of the column as to make the rate of marching not more than five miles a day; until the 25th, when Tuscumbia was reached. In the mean time a body of Federal troops landed at Eastport, on the south bank of the Tennessee, and burned the little town and several plantation-houses in the neighborhood. General Dodge's division moved on slowly, pressing back Roddy to Town Creek, where, on the 28th, Forrest, with his brigade, joined Roddy. Near that place the Federal forces divided; the cavalry, under Colonel Streight, turning off to the south, towards Moulton, and the main body, under General Dodge, halting, and then marching back. Leaving Roddy to observe Dodge, Forrest pursued Streight's party with three regiments, and captured it within twenty miles of Rome, after a chase of five days, and repeated fights, in which he killed and wounded three hundred of the
er day, nearly all of whom wished to embrace the terms of the President's Amnesty Proclamation, which, with Major-General Grant's General Order No. 10, of Headquarters Military Division of Mississippi, had been freely circulated within the rebel lines for some time previous. On the twentieth of January, General G. M. Dodge, at Pulaski, Tenn., having ascertained that a force of rebel cavalry under Roddy, was constructing flat-boats, and hiding them in Little Bear Creek, Spring Creek, and Town Creek, and also that one of Roddy's regiments was foraging on the north side of the Tennessee River, he immediately informed General Grant of these movements of the enemy, who directed me to organize an expedition at once, of sufficient force to drive Roddy away from where he was reported to be, and to destroy all boats and materials that might in any way be used by the enemy in crossing the Tennessee River. On the twenty-second, information was received that Johnson's and Morrow's brigades, of
making a stand for battle. Lebanon and Guntersville were both reached on Thursday, a number of rebel officers and men having been captured on the march. At Town Creek a lieutenant and two courier stations and five thousand seven hundred dollars in confederate money were captured. This money, it was ascertained, had been sentheeler and Roddy, estimated at four thousand five hundred, together with the force which had fallen back before his advance, were to concentrate the next day at Town Creek, at an admirable place for offensive operations, and which he was obliged to pass on his return. Smith had nothing but infantry and cavalry; no artillery and nurgh. He has had no severer test of his abilities as a general officer, than this expedition. The command left Lebanon on Wednesday, and reached and crossed Town Creek with no opposition. Here they halted for several hours. But the enemy refused to attack — positions were precisely the reverse of their well-laid plans. They
h Roddy fought them. Their loss was heavy, ours slight. He contested every inch of ground, but falling back before overwhelming forces, the enemy advanced and entered Tuscumbia on the twenty-fifth. The enemy advanced toward Decatur as far as Town Creek. Nothing more occurred until the twenty-eighth. On that day Forrest with his brigade, having been ordered by me from Columbia, arrived and engaged all day, with the loss of one killed and three wounded. The loss of the enemy heavy. Forreste with a force of ten thousand men. Skirmishing began that evening, and on Tuesday morning General Forrest, with not more than one thousand five hundred men, engaged the enemy ten thousand strong for several hours. The engagement took place at Town Creek, between Courtland and Florence, and across the creek, as it was so much swollen by recent rains that it was impossible for either party to cross. The contest closed at this place without the accomplishment of a great deal on either side. Fro

November twenty-third, moved at daylight, and camped near Milledgeville, fifteen miles. November twenty-fourth, left camp at ten A. M., passing through Milledgeville and crossing the Oconee River, and camping at Town Creek, nine miles. November twenty-fifth, moved at daylight, crossing Buffalo Creek, and camping at Cagy Creek, marching twelve miles. Twenty-sixth, moved at daylight for Sandersville; about four miles west of that place, my foragers were met by Wheeler's cavalry, who were disposed to resist their advance. The foragers were soon formed and deployed as skirmishers, and steadily drove the enemy to and through Sandersville, never checking the advance of the column. As a precautionary measure,
ttled, broken, piney country. My column crossed Beaver Run at eleven A. M., and at a quarter past twelve P. M. crossed Town Creek. At three P. M., my brigade crossed Geem Creek, and at half-past 4 P. M. encamped on the ridge beyond. The distance mcompletely blockaded with trains, I did not get my column fairly in motion until ten o'clock. Just before dark, crossed Town Creek, the bridge over which was very bad, and went into camp near Gum Creek; the First division being encamped about three qf a mile of the track. 24th.
