The Daily Dispatch: May 31, 1862., [Electronic resource], Colonel Morgan's late Exploit in Kentucky. (search)
somewhat meagre, and in some respects erroneous, we are induced to give the following, written by a gentleman who participated in the affair: The arrival at Cave city, by. Col. M. arrived at Cave City in time to stop a freight train — a splendid new engine and 37 cars — from Louisville. I arrived soon after with our smallCave City in time to stop a freight train — a splendid new engine and 37 cars — from Louisville. I arrived soon after with our small army, when a detail of six men was sent up the railroad for the purpose of tearing up the track after a passenger train should have passed them, and which was soon due from Louisville. The freight train and engine were then destroyed. The passenger train soon coming in sight, the engineer discovered something wrong and tried to ds Sparta, where we arrived in due time without further incident. Major Elbatte was paroled here, Major Coffee having been paroled on the first day's march from Cave City. One interesting incident connected with Major Elbette is worth relating. The Louisville Journal, a number of which we got from the same train that brought the
Col. John H. Morgan. --This distinguished officer arrived here yesterday afternoon. We learn he will remain her until his regiment is organized, which we presume will be but a few days. Col. Morgan's prisoner. Major Caughey, of Wolford's cavalry, captured at Cave City and paroled, also arrived here yesterday Major Caughey went to Washington to try arrange for his exchange, but not being able to it, promptly returned and delivered himself to his captor.-- Knoxville Register, 24th.
encounter, routed from Owensborough eight hundred rebels, under Col. Martin, who lost twenty-eight killed and twenty-five wounded. Our loss was three killed and eighteen wounded. We captured the and seven prisoners. [It was published in a telegram Saturday that Gen. Bragg captured 1,800 of the enemy at Owensboro'. The victory to our arms was doubtless complete, yet the Yankee journals endeavor to create the impression that we have met with a reverse.] Reliable advices from Cave City say that a portion of Gen. Buell's force attacked and repulsed Gen. Bragg's rear guard from Horse Cave, on Thursday evening. General Bragg is reported to have moved the main body of his army across the river southward from Mumfordsville. No further particulars are received. Louisville, Ky., September 22--Gen. Bragg's forces have escaped from those of Gen. Buell, and are several hours ahead, marching rapidly upon Louisville. Major-General Nelson is making arrangements defend
to defend both front and rear. Position of Bragg's army in the West--reconnaissance by Buell. A reconnaissance in force was made by General Buell from Cave City, on the 18th inst, and a letter dated there the 23d gives the result of it. The reader will smile at the lies italicised in the second paragraph, so well illustrating the dependence to be placed in Yankee letters: Gen. Buell moved at an early hour on Thursday from Cave City towards Horse Well, a point some three miles east, and about five miles from the turnpike road by which Bragg had marched to Munfordsville. By daylight he had felt the enemy, and, approaching cautiously, had drivee to Munfordsville, and the reduction of that point, Bragg had no road to get South without fighting; for while he was engaged at Munfordsville Buell moved up to Cave City, and made a movement on the Glasgow road. There no longer remained an egress for him. What was more natural, then, than to avoid him, and push forward to some p
ed that 400 Federal prisoners were captured by our forces before falling back to Stewart's Creek, This morning, at Murfreesboro', it was believed that a general engagement would take place during the day. One hundred and fifty four Federal officers arrived here to-night from Murfreesboro', to be sent to Vicksburg for exchange. Nashville papers of the 27th announce that Rosecrans has moved his headquarters to Concord Church, eight miles South of Nashville. They do not believe a battle is imminent. Trains from Louisville falled to arrive Thursday or Friday nights, and it was reported at Nashville that Morgan had torn up the track at Cave City. The Louisville Journal, of the 24th, contains a dispatch from Lexington, dated 23d, reporting that Gens. Floyd and Marshall, with a large force, had penetrated Pound Gap and were rapidly advancing into the court of Kentucky Lexington and vicinity were full of Morgan's men. Four of them had been captured by a scouting party.
lasgow. A letter from Nashville to a Yankee journal given the following particulars of the recent rebel said on Glasgow, Tennessee: When we reached Munfordsville, a dispatch from Bowling Green informed us that a force of rebels had that morning attacked and taken Glasgow — an important point, only seven miles from the railroad — and ordered us to proceed very cautionary, as it was expected that they would attempt to capture our train. We felt our way along slowly till we reached Cave City, at which point we found a lot of fugitives just in from Glasgow. The whole affair is a most shameful one. Glasgow was garrisoned by 220 twelve months men of the 37th Kentucky volunteers, under Col. Martin. They had fortifications, two pieces of artillery, and sufficient supplies to have held this place a mouth against 5,000 men. The rebels were mounted, numbered eighty-two, and were commanded by a Col. Hughes. At daybreak yesterday morning they dashed into the town, completely su
e, by the President in a brief speech, to which Gen. Grant as briefly replied. He has signified his desire to remain in the field in active service, and it is now believed that he will not be retained as General in chief in Gen. Halleck's position. Basil Duke, one of Morgan's men, passed through Philadelphia on his way to Fort Delaware on Friday last, and was lasted at the Continental Hotel by his friends. The Confederate guerilla, Capt. Richardson, en route northward as a prisoner of war, whilst attempting to escape was shot dead at Cave City, Ky., by Capt. Stone, of the 37th Kentucky. In Tennessee the National Union Conservative (Lincoln) ticket has been successful in Memphis, over the Unconditional Union ticket. Palatiah Perrit, a noted merchant and "philanthropist" of New York, is dead. The German Republican papers have hoisted Fremont's name for President. A convention is called to meet at Cleveland, Ohio, on the 10th of May, to nominate him formally.
d the platform without taking offence, while no truly loyal man can fail to be disgusted with its manifest truckling to the disloyal elements in the loyal States. Upon the whole, the platform is a pitiful affair, and will be expectorated upon by all sorts of people. Wheeler's operations in Tennessee. The following is the latest Yankee dispatch about General Wheeler's movements: Louisville, August 30.--Passengers by the Nashville train say that Wheeler, with his entire force, has appeared at the bend of the Cumberland river, three miles below Gallatin, where they captured a company of United States troops, and were attempting to cross the river this morning for an advance upon Gallatin. His force is variously estimated at from five to twelve thousand, (the former number is probably nearly correct.) A report has reached Cave City, Kentucky, that the colonel commanding the post at Gallatin ordered the depot there to be burned, as it was without the range of his guns.
cannon, besides the armament of the gunboat Undine. "Orders from Hood and Forrest had been read to the troops, saying that Hood was marching north, and would cross the Tennessee river at Bridgeport, while Forrest attacked Johnsonville. " --It appears from the following telegram from Louisville that our cavalry is operating between Louisville and Nashville: "The Journal says a gang of guervilles made an attack on the Louisville and Nashville railroad yesterday, striking it at Cave City. Several negro soldiers were captured and killed. The scoundrels after the perpetration of this outrage, retreated from the road in great haste." --The Federals are hurrying away from Price to attend to Hood. A dispatch from St. Louis, dated the 4th, says: "General Rosecrans and A. J. Smith arrived last night, Smith's infantry moving east ward, one column on the north side and the other on the south side of the Missouri river, with instructions to clear the country of guerril
