"a little more Grape."

of the county General Bragg inflicted as much damage upon the Yankees as they have probably defeated in any other battle of the war. The slaughter was terrific. That he was totally routed was probably owing to his vest preponderance of numbers. After all, in view of the which the enemy suffered, and Bragg's taking of all he had captured. back of Gen. Bragg is not without He has taken away all the prisoners and all the guns he has captured, and is now ready to give the enemy, If he chooses to attack him "a little more grasp."

The Taking off of everything he captures is a of this General, for which he deserves credit. He captured an immense quantity of supplies in Kentucky, and took them off safely. He captured four thousand man, twenty four cannon, and five thousand stand of small arms at and took them off also. We shall set be surprised if the Yankees in view of the spells he is always delivering them of, should dealgnals him the Cossack of the South. In that event we would respectfully suggest that they give him the name of Gen. Tookemoff. This is a very good Russian name, and it has the advantage of describing the Generals peculiar genius. We trust that the way continue to merit the little, and take off guns and Yankees till the end of the war.
