eastward toward Tupelo. Closing up my column, it was quickly thrown off the road to the north, and moved by neighboring roads to the north-west, with a view of passing some four miles north of Pontotoc. Approaching the road from Pontotoc to Tuscumbia, (which leads east of north from Pontotoc,) we fell in with rebel flankers or stragglers, about three miles from Pontotoc captured three and wounded one, while others escaped. It was here ascertained that the rebel column was moving out fromior in numbers, and mounted on fresh horses. My object was to avoid him if possible; if not, to fight at his rear. Throwing out a small guard at a strong position to guard our right flank, the column was promptly moved toward Pontotoc, on the Tuscumbia road, capturing several stragglers from the rebel force by the wayside. Passing down this road, the rebel column was, for the space of a mile, in full view, moving north on the Ripley road, and about three fourths of a mile to the west of us.
Doc. 123.-Colonel Cornyn's expedition to Florence and Tuscumbia, Ala. The Huntsville Advocate of the eleventh of March contains a letter from Tuscumbia, giving the particulars of what it calls the late raid of the Abolition hell-hounds into NoTuscumbia, giving the particulars of what it calls the late raid of the Abolition hell-hounds into North-Alabama. It says: Early on Sunday morning, the twenty-second of February, five Yankee gunboats came up the Tennessee River; they did not land at Tuscumbia Landing, but proceeded on up to Florence. Here two of them landed and destroyed e served upon citizens of the town and neighborhood: headquarters First brigade, Major F. P. Blair's division, Tuscumbia, Ala., February 23, 1863. edict First.--The United States Government, having ordered assessments to be made upon the weome and get it. This letter is written by a Colonel North A. Messenger, editor of the North Alabamian, published at Tuscumbia, and himself a renegade from the free States. Messenger gives the following account of his own experience during the
ive days of travel. In this condition we moved, in the rear of General Dodge's forces, to Tuscumbia, Alabama, which place we reached on the twenty-fourth. Here worn-out mules and wagon-horses were rtion. But the inhabitants, in this and adjoining counties, having heard of Dodge's advance to Tuscumbia, at once concealed their horses and mules in the mountains. This caused some delay in mountinbefore them. Camped at night at Day's Gap, enjoying the first full night's rest since we left Tuscumbia. On the morning of the thirtieth of April, shortly after leaving camp, our rear was fired iutant and Inspector-General: On the nineteenth of April the enemy moved from Corinth toward Tuscumbia, crossed Bear Creek with five regiments of cavalry, two of infantry, and ten pieces of artillery 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
ed up and were off. Some few sharp-shooters remained behind, fired a few shots at a transport having on board sick and wounded. I followed on up the bank, throwing shell after them till I thought them out of range, and ceased firing. By this time General Ellet had landed and was pursuing them. Several of the enemy were found dead on the bank, and many more were dragged off in the woods. I should suppose that their loss in killed and wounded is about twenty-five or thirty. I believe General Ellet lost two killed and one wounded on his boats; also, some horses killed. About eleven P. M. I left General Ellet at the foot of the bar, and proceeded on up the river with his boat and the Emma Dunean, to communicate with the fleet above. I arrived at Eastport in the afternoon of the twenty-seventh instant, and received a communication from General Dodge at Tuscumbia. . . . . Le Roy Fitch, Lieutenant Commanding.

oo long delayed attack upon Grand Gulf by our naval flotilla commenced at eight o'clock this morning, all seven of the gunboats — Benton, (flag-ship,) Lafayette, Tuscumbia, Carondelet, Mound City, Pittsburgh, and Louisville — participating, and the fight continued until near one o'clock P. M., lasting almost five hours. The place w by the transports, which will go down empty. All the gunboats have received some injury, but not one has been materially damaged or crippled. The Lafayette, Tuscumbia, Pittsburgh, Mound City, Carondelet, Louisville — all went in and fought the rebel batteries, head, stern, and broadside; first down-stream, then up-stream; then returning the fire, as all the boats give unmistakable evidence. The Benton was hit over fifty times, the Lafayette twenty-eight times. The Lafayette received a shot in her hull, exploding near the magazine. The Benton had eight killed and twenty wounded, Pittsburgh six killed, and Tuscumbia seven killed and a number woun
ng me to shell the batteries from half-past 9 until half-past 10, to annoy the garrison. I kept six mortars playing rapidly on the works and town all night, and sent the Benton, and Mound City, and Carondelet, up to shell the water-batteries, and other places where troops might be resting during the night. At seven o'clock in the morning the Mound City proceeded across the river and made an attack on the hill batteries opposite the canal. At eight o'clock I joined her with the Benton, Tuscumbia, and Carondelet. All these vessels opened on the hill batteries, and finally silenced them, though the main work on the battery containing the heavy rifled gun was done by the Mound City, Lieutenant Commanding Byron Wilson. I then pushed the Benton, Mound City, and Carondelet up to the water-batteries, leaving the Tuscumbia (which is still out of repair) to keep the hill batteries from firing on our vessels after they had passed by. The three gunboats passed up slowly, owing to the
