continued on in the direction of Carthage, on the Cumberland river. It is but just to say that all the different field and staff officers conducted themselves with great bravery, and cheerfully suffered all the privations their commands were called upon to endure. To mention either individual cases or particularize regiments who are entitled to praise, were wrong; for all did what they believed to be their duty. The greatest loss fell upon the 15th Mississippi and the left wing of Col. Battle's 20th Tennessee regiment, they being in a more exposed position than some of the other regiments. The loss of property is great, but does not reach the exaggerated reports first brought in, and in a few weeks the army will again be ready for the field. Federal movements on the Tennessee river. The Nashville Republican and Benner, of Saturday, gives the following particulars of the Federal attack upon Port Henry, and of the Federal movements in that section! We have
is fetid with the stench of wounds, and the rain is pouring down upon thousands who yet lie upon the bloody ground of Shiloh. It is thought that the battle will not he renewed. In fact it is already understood that the enemy have fallen back over the Tennessee, demoralized and broken in ranks and spirits. Van- Dorn has arrived with reinforcements, and Price is on his way here. The report is prevalent to-night that Buell has been killed, and that his papers are in possession of Col. Battle. The Charleston Mercury publishes the following from a private letter: On last Thursday we were ordered to have three days provisions ready to march on the next day. But, on account of the left wing of the army being further from the scene of action than was expected, the fight was delayed until Sunday. When the boys were ordered to pitch in, they went to work with the fury of madmen, and frequently through the day did I see the flags of the two armies brushing against each o
lle. Another engagement took place there, and at Rheatown on Sunday, in which our forces fought desperately, cutting their way through four regiments of the enemy, who, supported by artillery, had succeeded in reaching our rear. Our men fell back to Zollicoffer until the Yankees, heavily reinforced, advanced upon them, when they were withdrawn to Bristol. "Our loss in both days' fights is estimated at 300 killed and wounded. Numbers of the wounded fell into the hands of the enemy. Capt. Battle and several others, wounded at Rheatown, have arrived here. The Union men of East Tennessee say the Yankee loss is estimated at 1,200 killed and wounded. "On Wednesday night the enemy arrived at Bristol, and are reported to have advanced towards Abingdon yesterday with a heavy force, supposed to number 8,000 or 10,000. Joe Hooker commands in East Tennessee. Burnside has left, having been dismissed or resigned. Three regiments of Tennessee renegades have been organized, and 4,000
From the Rapidan. Orange C. H., Jan. 26. --The enemy are moving some of their cavalry in the direction of Madison C. H. It is reported they have crossed Robinson river, capturing some of our pickets. It is not believed to be anything more than a raid, and arrangements have been made to meet them. Battle's Alabama brigade re-enlisted to-day for the war.
t they capture — each of these gallant, partisans are getting no insignificant amount of horse flesh and other valuable plunder in these predatory raids. It is a gratifying fact that so many of the soldiers in the army of Tennessee should be re- enlisting for the war, and it cannot but reassure the country of the spirit of our soldiers to achieve independence. Thundering responses will, I am sure, issue from this army soon. Indeed, the ball may already he said to be in motion. To-day Battle's gallant brigade of Alabamians, formerly Rodes's old brigade, re-enlisted, I am told, for the war. Thus Alabama leads off in the glorious work which will doubtless widen and deepen until every brigade in the army shall declare itself "in for the war." The religious interest in the army is unchilled by the cold weather. Meetings are still held in every part of the army; and in many, if not all the brigades, meeting houses have been constructed by the soldiers for their own use, and fai
Honor to whom Honor is due. Camp 5th Alabama Reg't, Battle's Brigade, Robes's Division, January 29th, 1864. To the Editor of the Dispatch. I notice in your issue of to day, that you ascribe to the North Carolina troops "the high honor of being the first in general army, to re-enlist for the war. " Feeling assured that you would not intentionally misrepresent the facts in the matter, I ask you in justice to the brave Alabamians, who were the first to initiate this glorious movement in the Army of Northern Virginia, to correct your statement. The 5th Alabama Regiment re-enlisted on the 25th inst., and Battle's entire brigade (to which it belongs,) on the 26th. If, therefore, any honor attaches itself to the troops who were the first to lead off in this brave work, it is due to Alabamans chivalrous sons. Justice.
ready for the "tug of war," when the season propitious for campaigning shall set in? What says the country and the Congress? Speaking for the army, I am exceedingly rejoiced in being able to state that the noble move begun in their midst by Battle's gallant brigade of Alabamians is likely to go on, until every brigade in the army shall declare its voluntary purpose never to lay down arms until our honorable and lasting peace shall have been won on the battle field, or secured through negotiation. The whole of Rodes's division, consisting of Battle's Alabama brigade, Daniel's, Johnson's and Ramseur's N. C. brigades, and Doles's Georgia brigades, have patriotically followed the lead of Rodes's old brigade, and are now enrolled for the war. Nor has it ended here Lane's North Carolinians of Wilcox's division, and Wilcox's old brigade of Anderson's division, have likewise renewed their pledges of devotion to their cause and country. Old Virginia, too, is no laggard in this glori
d that Steed came into his restaurant, near the Central depot, and after inquiring as to the time the Yankees would reach Richmond, remarked that he "wished the Yankees would come and take the d — d old town." He (Antelotti) turned off without making any reply, and soon after Steed left. That evening he was found with the bottle of brandy in his pocket, which Antelotti recognized as his own, when he had him arrested. The accused stated to the Mayor that he was a member of Rodes's division, Battle's brigade, and being in the city he got on a spree. As to the testimony against him, given by Antelotti, he was afraid it was true, for when under the influence of liquor he did not know what he did. Hearing this, and discovering a spirit of candor in his statement, he was ordered by His Honor to proceed to his regiment. The charge against a white man named Henry Hicks, of having in his possession one white and one gray shirt, and a door lock, supposed to have been stolen, was continue

is left, joining Johnson's right on the pike, whilst Early was held in reserve. About one P. M, the enemy made a serious onset upon Brig Gen J M Jones's Virginia brigade, who held the advance, and the extremely of Johnson's division supported by Battle's brigade, and the other three brigades of Rodes's division.--The fight which ensued was contested with great until about 3 P. M. when a lull ensued, our men having repulsed the enemy most handsomely. During the attack on Battle's brigade, and Battle's brigade, and just at a time it was being rapidly forced back, Gordon's brigade was ordered forward, and made one of the grandest charges of the war, forcing the enemy back at all points. Later in the evening about 5 o'clock, the enemy again made a desperate assault upon Johnson's lines, but which was most gallantly and handsomely repulsed, our troops remaining masters of the field, and the Yankee killed and wounded being piled up in great numbers before our breastworks. The enemy not knowing that we had an
y. There was some heavy skirmishing on Monday, in which we suffered some loss, and have reason to believe that more was insisted upon the enemy. We are informed that a portion of Rodes's division, supported by was sent forward to feel the position of the enemy, and came upon them in the neighborhood of Betheeds Church, in Honorer col. A right ensued, in which the enemy were driven back some two miles or more when our troops came upon the enemy breastworks and fell back. Meanwhile, Battle's and Daniel's brigades flanked the enemy's line of skirmishers, and succeeded in capturing 125 prisoners, who were received here last evening. Some of these prisoners stated that their "time was on Monday, and seemed to think it a hard case that they should have been captured at that interesting period. Eight prisoners, including a captain and a quartermaster, were also brought in yesterday afternoon. They were captured between Mechanicsville and the Pamunkey river on Monday evening
