From the South. Morgan's last exploit is thus described by a letter from Lenores, in East Tennessee, dated August 26th: On last Wednesday morning an Indiana regiment was dispatched from Nashville by rail as far as the burnt bridge at Sandersville, from thence to proceed on foot to Gallatin, to recapture that place, and at the same time (if possible) to capture the redoubtable John Morgan. The Colonel of this regiment (Hefferen) entered Gallatin and arrested every male citizen, including many of the oldest in the county. He permitted his men to sack the stores and destroy the property of quiet, peaceable citizens and also to enter the Masonic Lodge at Gallatin and scatter the furniture and paraphernalia of the order in every direction. They then proceeded with their captives down the road towards Nashville. In the meantime Gen. Morgan, with 1,200 men, returned to Gallatin from Hartsville, and bearing of the recent visit of the "Yanks," started with his command in pursuit.
