The Chattanooga Rebel mentions the fact that the wife of General John C. Breckinridge has had prepared a magnificent stand of colors, constructed from the silk of the wedding-dress worn by herself upon the day of her marriage, to be presented through her husband to the most gallant and brave regiment of his division. The Rebel understands that this appropriate and valued present has been bestowed upon the Twentieth Tennessee regiment, commanded by Col. Tom Smith, and well known as the famous Battle regiment, that did such gallant service in the disastrous battle of Fishing Creek.--Jackson Crisis, Feb. 25

ears ago, leaving his mother in destitute circumstances, and with a family of four children to support and educate. About fifteen months ago, our drummer-boy went from Jackson (Michigan) to Detroit, with Captain C. V. Deland, in the capacity of waiter in the Ninth Michigan. With that regiment he went to Louisville, West-Point, Ky., and Elizabethtown, Ky.--at the last-named place he was appointed drummer-boy. Since that time he has been in six battles, as follows: Lebanon, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, Shelbyville, McMinnsville, and Fredericksburgh. At the battle of Murfreesboro, where the Union forces were taken by surprise before daylight in the morning, after beating the long-roll, and pulling the fifer out of bed to assist him, he threw aside his drum, and seizing a gun, fired sixteen rounds at the enemy from the window of the court-house in which his regiment was quartered, but bur men were compelled to surrender, and they were all taken prisoners, but were immediately paroled, a
epot, and finding a vacant place between two prostrate forms, dropped down to rest and was soon lost in forgetfulness. I have no knowledge of how long I slept, but getting cold, I partially awoke, and hunching my right-hand partner, requested him to roll over and spoon. He made no reply, and giving him a tremendous thump, I again besought him to spoon, but it was no go. Turning on my other, side I shook my other bedfellow, and made the same request. He too paid no heed to my desire. Exasperated at what I considered his unaccommodating spirit, I determined to bring matters to a crisis. Drawing up my left leg, I gave him a most unmerciful kick, but he was as immovable as the rock of ages. I was now thoroughly awake. Jumping up, I turned down the blankets, first on one and then on the other, and by the dim fire-light beheld on either hand a corpse. My nap was finished. In the morning I learned that they were rebel dead, brought down from Murfreesboro for burial at Chattanooga.
On Sunday night Wilder distributed his brigade so as to protect the roads from the right to Chattanooga, and on Monday joined the main body in good order and good spirits, entirely unconscious of a let him. They fought to break him up before he could get back to the impregnable position at Chattanooga, and only succeeded in breaking up two divisions. As Wilder came in he gathered up and brought with him a very large amount of stores and material, supposed by those in Chattanooga, and of course by the Herald writer, to have been lost. Among these were two guns, one hundred ambulances, sihousand five hundred and thirty with him to Stevenson. The distance of the battle-field from Chattanooga has not been fully understood, and the supposition that Rosecrans was driven back twenty or tat Burnside will not be caught unprepared. When the courier reached him he was moving toward Chattanooga, at what point or with what strength it would probably be improper to state, but we may state
Incidents of Chickamauga. Chattanooga, Tenn., September 24, 1868. The two armies are now confronting each other in the immediate vicinity of the town of Chattanooga. After the two days battle of the nineteenth and twentieth, the line of the Federal army occupied a position eight miles from the town — the left, with General TChattanooga. After the two days battle of the nineteenth and twentieth, the line of the Federal army occupied a position eight miles from the town — the left, with General Thomas, maintaining its former front, while the right and centre had fallen back some two miles from its former position. From the superior force of the rebels in our front, and the great extent of line which the Federals were necessarily forced to defend, after holding the enemy at bay for forty-eight hours, our lines were withdccessful recrossing of the Tennessee River. But General Rosecrans did not see proper to take advantage of these favorable designs of the enemy. On retiring to Chattanooga, instead of placing the Tennessee between his forces and those of the rebels, he immediately called around him his generals, and in a few words explained to the

Chattanooga, Saturday, June 16, 1863. The week has been characterized by a series of dreary rains which have continued up to this morning. At the present writing it is warm and clear, but lazy-looking clouds still hang heavily in the east, indicating that the rainy term is not yet over. The corn never yet promised a more abundant yield, but the wheat in some districts is slightly touched with the rust, produced by the late rains, and there is some difficulty in being able to save the immense crop in East and Middle Tennessee for want of hands to secure the harvest. The flour-mills in East-Tennessee last year principally supplied our whole South-Western army, and it is to be hoped that dome means will be afforded to farmers to gather their crops before it is too late to save them. The Board of Commissioners for this State under the impressment law has fixed the price of shelled corn at two dollars per bushel. This is complained of very much by the farmers, who think it is und
Grant at Chattanooga. by James B. Everhart. There went up a wail of sorrow From all the loyal land-- There went up a shout of triumph From every rebel band; For the banks of Chickamauga Beheld our smitten host, And the banks of Chickamauga Made good the rebel boast. And trade through all our cities Was staggered by the blow, And down, with its torn banner, fell The nation's credit low. In the market and the warehouse, The pulpit and the press, In the parlors and the highways Was seen the sorflag of freedom waves! All honor, then, to all our men, To leaders and to guard, Who bared their life in mortal strife, Or who kept watch and ward; And praises to the Lord of Hosts, Whom nations must obey, That he did bide, all by our side, On Chattanooga's day! Let holy tears bedew the graves Of those who fell in fight; Let marble stones, above their bones, Salute the morning light; Let history write in golden books; Let bards with song enshrine; Let women chant the name of Grant, And the glor

uga, stragglers from our army spread extravagant reports of disaster and defeat, and that the enemy, supposing the destruction of our army complete, exultingly announced that the road was clear to Nashville. After the retreat, while placing Chattanooga in a state of defence, General Rosecrans ordered groves levelled and houses burned, when so situated as to afford shelter to the enemy, or interfere with the range of the artillery. A dove escaped from a burning building, and took shelter in ost; As, after Cannee's fatal day, the Roman armies bore Their standards from Tiber's banks to Afric's hated shore; As when the northern bear waned weak, in Borodino's fight, Napoleon's host recoiled before the vengeful Muscovite ; So yet from Chattanooga's walls we'll spring, the foe to meet-- The army of the Cumberland shall never know defeat!” As from doomed Sodom's sin-cursed town to Zoar Lot trembling crossed, So from the tumult flees a dove, and cowers amid our host; A message to that wa

quently kept a diningsaloon, with a license for the sale of liquors. In Atlanta citizens are compelled to obey military rules which they do not recognize as law, and which rules even that government (through Alexander A. Stephens) pronounced to be illegal, arbitrary, and unjust, yet for refusing to obey which I have been seven times imprisoned — my property forcibly carried away without compensation. My family thus robbed, I was sent into another State for trial, and there imprisoned in Chattanooga to satisfy the malice of the military authorities in Atlanta, whose acts of despotism caused the death of peaceable citizens, and murdered even the babe in my wife's arms. During my imprisonment my family became sick, one of my children died, and my wife's recovery was for some time regarded as hopeless. Sir, these are facts which many respectable citizens of Atlanta can corroborate. For defending the character of Michael Myers, a respectable citizen, who was arrested on suspicion of
