Colonel John H. Morgan.

--The Knoxville Register, of Sunday, has the following relative to the renowned partisan:

‘ This gallant officer, with his command, was expected to arrive here last night en route for Virginia, where it is understood that he will supply the place in Stonewall Jackson's army made vacant by the death of the brave Ashby. Col. Morgan, no doubt, will be equally as terrible to the Yankees in the Valley of Virginia as he has been in Kentucky, and we predict that we shall very soon hear of his daring deeds on the new theatre of action to which he has been assigned.

This is the first intimation we have heard of Colonel Morgan's transfer. It has been generally understood here that the command of Ashby's Cavalry would devolve upon another officer; but no one can deny that Morgan is worthy to wear the mantle of the lamented Virginia hero.
