nemy fled, hotly pursued by our regiment, and reached the Coldwater at night, where they had reinforcements and artillery posted on the opposite side. Colonel Hepburn formed line and attacked, and had quite a brisk engagement — firing only by the flashes from the enemy's guns. It being night, and the rebels with reinforcements, our troops fell back, and rested for the night. At this place Captain Horton, of company A, was wounded in the spine. He was brought to the city to-day. The rebels were armed with Austrian muskets. I saw two bullets extracted from the wounded, and they are large and effective. I omitted to state that Orderly-Sergeant Daniel Estell, of Company L, was missing at the engagement at Collierville, and not yet heard from. Colonel Hatch left Collierville, early this morning, with other forces of his command, and will pursue the enemy vigorously. The Colonel has added another laurel to his chaplet, and the Second Iowa added one more to its glorious list.

Doc. 114.-attack on Collierville, Tenn. A national account. Memphis, November 5, 1863. We have learned late and interesting particulars concerning the recent attack on Collierville. It seems that the confederates have not felt just right since their former unsuccessfuhere was but a single regiment, the Seventh Illinois cavalry, at Collierville, but they had heard of the premeditated attack, and had sent to on with Chalmers's, they will probably escape. This attack on Collierville did not succeed even as well as did their former attempt. They orth to-day. On Tuesday, the third, the regiment had moved to Collierville, seven miles beyond Germantown, on the railroad.

ey saw the guns bidding them defiance, and not fully aware of the Iowa boys with their five-shooting rifles being in such close proximity, they swooped down on a furious charge to capture the pieces. The rebel right was under command of General Richardson, the left of General George. Lieutenant Reed stood by his guns manfully, and handled them admirably. When the rebs had got within easy range, the boys poured out their rapid fire from along the railroad track; the rebs pressed forward, but Iowa was too much for them; but three succeeded in reaching our line--one of them was General George. Just as he reached the line, his horse was killed, and in a moment he was in the grasp of a Yank, a prisoner; one of the others was wounded, and the other killed. After fighting for some time, the rebels were repulsed, and commenced a hasty retreat. The following are the casualties to the Second Iowa at that place: Frank Byland, company L; Charles F. Brown, company I, killed on the field; and

Subsequently, word was sent to the Third Michigan, Seventh Kansas, and Sixth Ted, seem not to have been satisfied without at least another trial. The Second is stationed here, the Sixth Illinois at Germantown, and others farther eastward. The rebels being on the move northward, on Sunday, the first, the Second was ordered outne P. M., with three days rations. They left camp on the morning of the second, at two o'clock A. M., and proceeded to Germantown. That night a serious affair between two officers terminated in blood. Several officers were present at supper — amonl Loomis's body went north to-day. On Tuesday, the third, the regiment had moved to Collierville, seven miles beyond Germantown, on the railroad. About noon the rebels made an attack on the place with a force of about one thousand five hundred st

nant P. S. Reed, of company K, took a position just north of the track. The rebels expected, no doubt, to find only the Seventh Illinois there, as they are stationed at that point, and two companies of whom they had captured on picket on the way up. They saw the guns bidding them defiance, and not fully aware of the Iowa boys with their five-shooting rifles being in such close proximity, they swooped down on a furious charge to capture the pieces.
