Review of the army of the West by President Davis.

On his recent trip to Tennessee, the President reviewed the army of the West at Murfreesboro'. An account of this review, by a reporter who was present, is published in the Chattanooga Rebel.--The division of Gen. Breckinridge was first reviewed, and afterwards the divisions of Cheatham's and Withera's, with the artillery commands belonging to each, also passed in review. The President followed by the corps and division Generals, the Brigadier Generals of the command, and their staff officers, rode down the lines at full gallop.--The General of each division rode on the right of the President, as their respective divisions were drawn up in review. The men in open ranks stood with arms presented, the officers saluting, and the regimental bands playing, each band taking it up in succession, as the cortege passed. The regiments were then wheeled into column and ‘"passed in review"’ before the President. Among the officers conspicuously mentioned in connection with the review; are Gens. Bragg, Hardee, Polk, Breckinridge and Chestham.
