A Precious Pet.
--A letter from Atlanta, Ga.
July 21st, says:
, since the capture of Murfreesboro
, has (it is said,) retired to Cumberland Mountain
, back of McMinnville
a few miles.
The captured commissioned officers passed Knoxville
, yesterday, en route for Richmond
, including Gen. Tom
, the same who twelve months ago gave E. M. Bruce
a letter of introduction to Preshlent Davis
, in which he said, ‘"my prayers are constantly ascending for your success."’ One month later he accepted a commission of Brigadier General
, with a very large contract for cattle, from his majesty, Abraham the First.
