March 5.

A fight occurred at Thompson's Station, a few miles south of Franklin, Tenn., between a considerable body of Union troops under the command of Colonel John Coburn, and a large rebel force under General Van Dorn, resulting, after a desperate conflict of four hours duration, in the rout or capture of the whole Union force.--(Doc. 130.)

The editorial office of the Crisis at Columbus, Ohio, was visited by a body of soldiers who destroyed every thing they could find in it.--Gold sold in Richmond, Va., at three hundred per cent advance.--The rebels at Vicksburgh during the day threw shells occasionally at the National forces engaged in digging the canal opposite that place, doing no damage.
