Our correspondence. Teras troops en route — powder Mill — visit to a veteran's Vineyard, and his account of a battle in the Old Times. Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 10, 1861. Five companies of Texas troops arrived here last week on their way to Virginia.--They were detained several days awaiting transportation. They deserve honorable mention for a march by land which they made through Louisiana of a peculiarly trying character. The distance was about 140 miles, four-fifths of which they passed through water and mud from an ankle to waist deep! At one point they waded for nearly a mile in water up to the waist. Frequently a soldier would step into a hole and go entirely under. One of them told me he had done so a dozen times. They were eleven days on the march, and it rained on them every day. I heard one of them say, "We marched along shouting, and as happy as if we had been at a camp meeting." Gallant, noble fellows! When I reflect on the deeds of our Souther
Tennessee (Tennessee, United States) (search for this): article 9
On last Saturday some of the Texans amused themselves by cutting down Union poles, several of which were still standing in the city. They made a clean sweep of these symbols of the "old concern." I learn that in one of the counties of East Tennessee, an old powder mill, which manufactured a part of the ammunition used by Jackson at the battle of New Orleans, has been again put in operation. It is worked by the grandsons of the owner at that period.--The quantity made is small. Yestnvolved in this plan would astonish a Frenchman or German. He has about three and a half acres in vines, which bear well.--He will make this year a quantity of wine, as he has done for several years past. He cultivates the Catawba variety. East Tennessee is found by experiments made to be well adapted to the growth and culture of the grape. Capt. C. gave me an interesting account of the battle of the Horse Shoe, which was fought on the 27th of March, 1814. The Indians (Creeks) lay in the

A few of these still survive, and it is always to me a source of high gratification to meet and converse with them. I know three who were in the battle of the Horse Shoe, the old gentleman referred to being one of them. This gentleman (Capt. James Campbell,) resides ten miles from this place, at a fine farm on French Broad River. He is noted as the pioneer throughout this region in the culture of the grape. He began the work without experience, six or eight years ago. His first cuttings were planted in holes about 10 or 12 feet apart, and the apparent waste of ground involved in this plan would astonish a Frenchman or German. He has about three and a half acres in vines, which bear well.--He will make this year a quantity of wine, as he has done for several years past. He cultivates the Catawba variety. E

In a subsequent expedition, lower down on the Tallapoosa river, Jackson's forces advanced on an Indian town supposed to be full of warriors, but found it evacuated. It contained a large council house, fifty feet in diameter, with a low arched entrance capable of admitting only one person at a time. High up on the

The Indians (Creeks) lay in the bend of the Tallapoosa river, behind a strong and admirably constructed breastwork of logs. In it were three rows of port-holes for riflemen, the lowest being intended for those sitting or lying down, the second for those kneeling, the third for those standing.

On a march, when the troops encamped even for a single night, he invariably threw up a breastwork of logs. Nor could his troops be defeated, because they had perfect confidence in him as a General. Nearly everything in war depends on this. Our troops near Washington have confidence in Beauregard, and they cannot be whipped." So mote it be. L.
