ad the honor to command it, never more conspicuously than in this combat maintained their high character throughout this action, but feebly expresses my feeling of obligation to them for counsel and support from the time of my arrival to the present hour. I doubly thank them, as well as the gallant, ever-ready Major-Gen. Rousseau, for their support in this battle. Brig.-Gen. D. S. Stanley, already distinguished for four successful battles--Island No.10, May twenty-seventh, before Corinth, Iuka, and the battle of Corinth — at this time in command of our ten regiments of cavalry, fought the enemy's forty regiments of cavalry, and held them at bay, and beat them wherever he could meet them. He ought to be made a Major-General for his services, and also for the good of the service. As for such brigadiers as Negley, Jefferson C. Davis, Johnson, Palmer, Hascal, Van Cleve, Wood, Mitchell, Cruft, and Sheridan, they ought to be made Major-Generals in our service. In such brigade comman

r to hold his ground against four or five times his number, during the entire day. The battle was like most engagements of the war — there was nothing decisive in the result, and the enemy carrying what he would, withdrew unmolested; but there is certainly much cause for congratulation in the fact that fortune has not allowed similar circumstances (the change of commanders) in the Eastern and Western armies to produce similar results, and that at the West we have a Stone River, not a Fredericksburgh. Louisville Journal account. battle-field of Stone River, January 5, 1863. I propose to give the readers of the ,Journal an account of the events which have rendered this blood-stained field forever memorable ; and, as in the case of the battle of Shiloh, I shall describe only what passed under my own eyes, leaving others to narrate what they themselves witnessed. On the morning of December twenty-sixth, Gen. Rousseau's division of Thomas's corps marched from its camp on t

nwhile had prepared to attack Gen. McCook, and by half-past 6 o'clock advanced in heavy columns — regimental front — his left attacking Willich's and Kirk's brigades of Johnson's division, which, being disposed as shown in the map, thin and light, without support, were, after a sharp but fruitless contest, crumbled to pieces, and driven back, leaving Edgarton and part of Goodspeed's battery in the hands of the enemy. The enemy following up, attacked Davis's division, and speedily dislodged Post's brigade ; Carlin's brigade was compelled to follow, as Woodruff's brigade, from the weight of testimony, had previously left its position on his left. Johnson's brigade, on retiring, inclined too far to the west, and were too much scattered to make a combined resistance, though they fought bravely at one or two points before reaching Wilkinson's pike. The reserve brigade of Johnson's division, advancing from its bivouac near Wilkinson's pike, toward the right, took a good position, and ma

g Brig. Surgeon, all have proved their efficiency too often and too long to need praise from me now, but my thanks are due to them for their intelligent and active assistance that day. Two of my orderlies, John Darstrin and Thomas Mar, remained by me under the fiercest fire. Darstrin's horse was killed under him and he severely wounded. They behaved nobly here as they did at Shiloh, and deserve commissions. The troops of my brigade represent the States of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. To the friends and relatives of the wounded and dead I offer my warmest condolence, but with it the proud assurance that their sons and brothers fell true soldiers with no stains upon them. All of which is respectfully submitted. E. N. Kirk, Brigadier-General. Report of Colonel Wiley. camp near Murfreesboro, Tenn., headquarters Forty-First regiment O. V., Jan. 6, 1863. Major R. L.

Sunday morning, the fourth of January, it was not deemed advisable to commence offensive movements, and news soon reached us that the enemy had fled from Murfreesboro. Burial-parties were sent out to bury the dead, and the cavalry was sent to reconnoitre Early on Monday morning General Thomas advanced, driving the rear-guard of rebel cavalry before him six or seven miles toward Manchester McCook and Crittenden's corps following, took position in front of the town, occupying Murfreesboro. We learned that the enemy's infantry had reached Shelbyville by twelve M. on Sunday, but owing to the impracticability of bringing up supplies and the loss of five hundred and fifty-seven artillery-horses, further pursuit was deemed unadvisable.
