inside were hanging on wherever they could find a sticking place; the aisles and platforms down to the last step were full of people clinging on like bees swarming round the doors of a hive. It took two engines to pull us up the heavy grade around Vineville, and we were more than an hour behind time, in starting, at that. Meanwhile, all sorts of rumors were flying. One had it that the road was cut at Jonesborough, then, at Barnesville, and finally that a large force of the enemy was at Thomaston advancing toward the road with a view to capturing our train. I never saw such wild excitement in my life. Many people left the cars at the last moment before we steamed out, preferring to be caught in Macon rather than captured on the road, but their places were rapidly filled by more adventurous spirits. A party of refugees from Columbus were seated near us, and they seemed nearly crazed with excitement. Mary Eliza Rutherford, who was always a great scatter-brain when I knew her at s

bt that it was general, as chaplains and missionaries were all busy so far as I can recall. August 24. Visited the sick at Ringgold, and then to Catoosa Springs, where there were a large number of convalescents, the most pleasant place for the sick to rest and recuperate that I have seen. I preached to them day and night during my stay, and there were penitents, professions, and profuse praise by the pardoned and happy Christian soldiers. Then I was at Spring Place, Dalton, The Rock, Thomaston, Barnesville, and a camp-meeting in Upson county, Georgia. Then to La Fayette, and on to Chickamauga. Could not preach on Sunday, September 13, our division was marching; but preached on the night of 15th, and Dr. McFerrin preached the night of the 16th. September 17. We marched from La Fayette, Georgia, in the direction of Chattanooga; passed Rock Spring Church and Pea-Vine, near which we bivouacked. While resting on my blanket in the shade, Lem.

From Gen. Johnster's army. [from our own Correspondent] Thomaston, Ga., Dec. 30, 1863. I resume the pen for the purpose of the public mind of an impression in regard to the future movements of the Army of Tennessee. I allude to the belief, said to be mined very generally in Georgia, that the army was engaged in repairing the route and constructing bridges in the rear with a view to falling back upon Atlanta. Having heard that same was felt upon this subject, I called upon Gen. Hardes before leaving Dalton, and I have his authority for saying that he has not the least thought of retiring from his present position; but on the contrary, if the enemy should advance this winter, which he does not believe they will do, he will dispute every spot of ground from Tunnel Hill to Atlanta. He believes, moreover, that if the will return to duty and the people at home will continue to supply the army with the means of the Federal army will never succeed in reaching Atlanta any mov
The Tennessee army and its [from our own Correspondent.] Thomaston, Ga., Dec. 23, 1863. I proceed, in accordance with a previous to furnish you with a series of sketches of the officers attached to this army. But let us first take a glance at the Army of Tennessee. The army itself is composed of quite as good material as the Army of Northern Virginia, though it has not been near so successful. The original Army of the Potomac--the army that fought the first battle of Manassas--was made up chiefly from the volunteer companies in the towns and cities, and was composed of young men of ardent temperaments and great military pride and spirit. A majority of these men have fallen victims to battle and disease, but they lived long enough to make their impress upon the army, and to set an example to their of courage, of heroic endeavor, and asprit d'corps, which has reproduced itself in every battle in which they have been engaged. A large proportion of the soldiers of
