--It has been the fortune of this General always to whip his share of the fight, no matter what may be the general results of the day — At Shiloh he drove the enemy to the Tennessee river, and would have run them into it but for an unlucky order from the Commander in Chief to retire. At Murfreesboro', in command of our left wing, he fought one of the most terrific battles and won as brilliant a victory as there is on record. Unfortunately, the centre and right did not do so well. And now again, in the Chickamauga Valley, he triumphs over the foe and captures seven stand of colors when all the rest of the army is flying in confusion from the field.
