his responsible trust. In July, 1862, he was placed in charge of the cavalry connected with the army in Mississippi, and in a few days thereafter he penetrated the enemy's lines, destroyed several bridges on his line of communications in West Tennessee; engaged in numerous conflicts with his cavalry, captured a small train, with a number of horses, mules, &c., and burned 3,000 bales of cotton which had been purchased by the enemy. He rendered most valuable service in the Kentucky campaign.ore skill than had ever been known under similar circumstances. After the Kentucky campaign, upon the united recommendations of Generals Bragg, Hardee, Polk, and Breckenridge, Col. Wheeler was commissioned Brigadier General, and sent to Middle Tennessee. Soon thereafter, on the 26th of December, 1862, Rosecrans commenced his march on Murfreesboro'. For three successive days Gen. Wheeler so disposed his forces as to induce the enemy to believe he was resisted by our entire army. When Gen.

s, and their blackened bulls soon line the shore. The armament of rifled guns belonging to the gunboat, a number of small arms, and valuable supplies of ammunition, in addition to the cargoes of the transports, fell into their hands, and were either destroyed or brought off. Not less than twenty other transports, guarded by iron-clad gunboats, took fright, threw overboard their valuable stores into the muddy Cumberland, and thus lightened were enabled to escape the daring Confederates. At Ashland, on the north bank of the river, the enemy had collected immense supplies of subsistence. Although the Cumberland was much swollen by recent rains, Wheeler swam his dauntless horsemen over, drove off the guard, consisting of a regiment of infantry, and destroyed stores covering several acres of ground. About this time he was joined by Forrest and his command, the two uniting with him in chasing the enemy into the forts at Dover, and in capturing a battery of splendid rifled guns, more amm

ful skirmishes, battles, and expeditions in which he figured. At the great battle of Chickamauga he took an important part, capturing some 2,000 prisoners, a train of wagons and ambulances, and a large supply of medical stores and other property. Soon after the battle he undertook to make the circuit of the Federal army with a force of about 4,500 men. He crossed the Tennessee river at Cotton Port, and recrossed it near Huntsville, after an absence of nine days, during which he crossed Walden's Ridge, the Sequatchie Valley, and the great Cumberland range. The results of the expedition may be summed up in a few words: He captured and destroyed over 1,000 wagons and their contents, burnt several large depots of supplies, took over 1,200 prisoners, sabered more than 6,000 mules, destroyed several important railroad bridges and much westlework, and brought off a great deal of valuable material.

Whilst other students passed their leisure hours in sports and in reading the romances of the day, young Wheeler would be found in the library, studying with the deepest interest the volumes which treated of campaigns and battles, both of modern and ancient times, and in examining military maps and the plans of battles of distinguished commanders. In October, 1859, he was ordered to the Cavalry School, at Carlisle, Penn., and there remained on duty during the winter. In the spring of 1860, we find him in New Mexico, stationed respectively at forts Union, Craig, and Fillmore, and engaging in several important scouts against the hostile Indians. Early in March, 1861, seeing the storm-cloud of war gathering over his country, he promptly decided upon his course, and when his native State acceded he at once forwarded his resignation and returned to Georgia.

The army of Tennessee and its Generals. [from our own Correspondent.] Thomaston, Ga., Jan. 1st, 1864. Major-General Joseph Wheeler. This modest and excellent officer was born in Augusta, Ga., on the 10th of September, 1836, and is consequently only twenty-seven years of age. Early in life he chose the profession of arms, and entered West Point in 1864, being one of the first who graduated under the five-year rule. His career at West Point developed the fact that he was one of the few who are born to the profession of arms.

Here he exhibited so much seal and capacity that upon the special recommendation of Gen.

He rendered most valuable service in the Kentucky campaign. His conduct at-Munfordsville elicited even the praises of the enemy. During the battle at Perryville he succeeded throughout the whole day, by his stubborn resistance, in keeping back an entire corps of the enemy. As the enemy formed his lines on the hills west of Perryville, with the evident intention of turning our left flank, Col. Wheeler charged and put to rout his advancing lines. When the Commander-in-Chief decided to retire from Kentucky, Wheeler was appointed chief of cavalry, and assigned to the duty of covering the retreat. This duty was performed with great tact and success.--His effective force did not exceed 1,000 sabres; yet so ingeniously did he display this small force that he protected every approach to the army, and compelled the enemy to a
