Mitchel said to his soldiers, You have struck blow after blow with a rapidity unparalleled. Stevenson fell, sixty miles to the east of Huntsville. Decatur and Tuscumbia have been in like manner seized, and are now occupied. In three days you have extended your front of operations more than one hundred miles, and your morning guns at Tuscumbia may now be heard by your comrades on the battle-field made glorious by their victory before Corinth. General Mitchel's thanks to his soldiers, Camp Taylor, Huntsville, April 16th, 1862. He had placed his army midway between Corinth and Nashville, opened communication with Buell, and controlled the navigation of the Tennessee for more than one hundred miles. For these achievements, accomplished without the loss of a single life, Mitchel was commissioned a Major-General of Volunteers, and, with orders to report to the War Department directly, his force was constituted an independent corps.

General: On yesterday a dash was made at Colonel Stanley, whose regiment was guarding bridges on the Athens and Decatur road, by a detachment of cavalry, said to be from Florence. They attacked the guards at one or two bridges, and finally the pickets of the main body at Athens. Two companies were ordered out and skirmished with the cavalry an hour or two, the cavalry retreating, until finally the enemy opened fire with three small brass field pieces, believed now to have been mounted in country wagons. This alarmed Colonel Stanley, and he ordered his train of wagons to leave at once, and followed with what force he had at the

Hook, Esq., Nashville, Tenn.: I fear you are again losing a most favorable opportunity to commence the purchase of cotton. John Morgan's raid has brought down the price and gives to buyers a chance which will not probably return again soon. Purchasers are here in advance of you and are making contracts this very day, and to them I offer the same facilities that I have offered to you, and will do so until you arrive. The cotton first purchased will

n't allow Northern traitors to go among them, and revive in their bosoms the dying fires of disloyalty. Better, for their own sakes and the sake of the nation, let loose in their midst a thousand hissing vipers. These could only kill their bodies, but the agents of Jeff Davis in the North, will, if they are permitted, poison their souls, and do it much more effectually than their own Southern leaders ever could. Gen. Mitchel's thanks to his soldiers. headquarters Third division, camp Taylor, Huntsville, April 16, 1862. General order No. 93. soldiers: Your march upon Bowling Green won the thanks and confidence of our Commanding General.

Doc. 35.-occupation of Rogersville, Ala. General Mitchel's report. headquarters Third division, Huntsville, Ala., camp Taylor, May 15. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War: At six P. M. on the thirteenth instant, General Negley's expedition from Pulaski, supported by Col. Little's expedition from Athens, entered Rogersville, driving the enemy across the Tennessee and destroying a portion of the ferry-boats. Having learned of the approach of Col. Little's force, the enemy succeeded in removing their artillery, baggage and stores before the arrival of Gen. Negley. I expected an obstinate defence at the passage of the Elk River, and accompanied Col. Little in person, but without crossing. The enemy, as usual, fled at our approach. I ordered yesterday an expedition to move promptly from Rogersville to seize the bridge across Shad Creek, and the ferry below the mouth of the same stream. This duty has been promptly executed, and the ferry and bridge are ours. No more t
