ting the commands last named pushed rapidly forward, with the view of reaching the rear of the column skirmishing with Lee on the river banks — supposed to be about thirteen thousand strong — and cutting them off from retreat. But on reaching Spring Hill — the point aimed at — it was found that the Federal had been notified by their cavalry of the movement, and had reached that locality in advance. It should be added, however, that their line of march was over eleven miles of smooth road, while our line of march was over seventeen miles of rugged country. "On arriving at Spring Hill, the Federal were discovered to be in battle array and fortified. General Forrest, with a part of his dismounted cavalry, led the charge in person; and that night the breastworks were in our possession. The enemy, after burning their supply train, had evacuated the position and moved on. The next morning (Wednesday) our troops were early on the march. Forrest leading, Stewart next, and Cheatham

The battle of Franklin--an Authentic Description. The South Carolinian is indebted to an officer of the late General Gist's staff, who has just arrived from the Army of Tennessee, for the following clear and comprehensive account of the battle at Franklin, Tennessee. It is a fight that requires a good deal of explanation, and anything throwing light on it is valuable: "Columbia, Tennessee, was first threatened by Lee's corps. Subsequently, Cheatham's corps arrived. On Sunday evening, November 27 the enemy commenced to evacuate, and on Monday morning our pickets entered and took possession of the town. General Forrest was at this time across the river, on the pike between Columbia and Nashville. Our pontoons not having arrived, it was impossible to cross the river at once; but meanwhile Lee made a feint as if he intended to do so, and, under cover of his fire, Cheatham's and Stewart's corps moved to a point seven miles below, and passed the river there.

The noble Cleburne fell, shot through the head with four balls, and died on the ramparts. Gist, previously wounded in the leg, had refused to leave the field, limping along on foot, cheering his men, finally received a ball through the breast, that took away his precious life; while Brown, Manigault, Johnson, Strahl, and scores of field and staff officers, who had exposed themselves at the head of their troops, were either killed or wounded.--Still our men faltered not. Dashing on, they reached the second line. The Federal were stubborn.

son of the lateness of the hour — it now being afternoon — to delay the attack until daylight of the following morning, and then to open with a park of one hundred pieces of artillery, and follow this cannonade with a charge; but the object of General Hood was to defeat the Yankee army before it reached the outskirts of Nashville, and he feared, from its demoralized condition, that it would escape during the night. An attack was, therefore, ordered to be made at once. Stewart and Forrest made ing across the field. It was night, however, and the difficulties of continuing the battle so great, that at 2 o'clock A. M., save the occasional spattering of musketry, the grand chorus of battle was at an end. The next morning it was discovered that the Federal had evacuated the position and were in full retreat to Nashville. It was likewise discovered that Thomas had been largely reinforced, and thus enabled to make the stubborn resistance which had not been anticipated by General Hood.
