make these the subjects of war. Your hospital flag has been and shall be respected. In the affair of Tuesday night your hospital, with its inmates, was in our possession for at least one hour, and as far as I can learn, my orders to scrupulously respect both were rigidly enforced. Our hospital and the two adjacent buildings occupied by medical officers, will continue to be used for legitimate purposes. Nothing has been or will be done to attract your fire. If, under these circumstances, you should put your threat into execution, which would be only in accordance with the acts of some of your brother commanders, of little experience in the custom of war, I shall take care that the fact shall be made known, that it may receive, as it will deserve, the execration of the civilized world. I have the honor to be Your obedient servant, [Signed] Branton Bragg. Major General Commanding. Colonel Harvey Brown, Commanding U. S. forces in the State of Florida, Fort Pickens.

Important from the Southwest--Confederate Victory in Tennessee--Capture of eighteen hundred Federal prisoners. The following official dispatch was received at the Adjutant General's office this morning: Murfreesborough, Dec. 8th, 1862.--An expedition sent under acting Brigadier General John H. Morgan, attacked an outpost of the enemy at Hartsville, on the Cumberland, yesterday morning, killed and wounded two hundred, captured eighteen hundred prisoners, two places of artillery, and two thousand small arms, and all other stores at the position. On the previous day a small foraging train was captured by Gen. Wheeler, near Nashville, with fifty prisoners, and on the 5th Col Reddy's Alabama cavalry also captured a train near Corinth, with an escorts and a number of negroes. Our loss at Hartsville was about 125 killed and wounded. None is either of the other places. (Signed.) Branton Bragg, Gen'l Com'g. Gen. S. Cooper, Richmond.
Defeat of Gen. Bragg. [from our own Correspondent.] Army of Tennessee, Chickamauga, Nov. 25, Midnight. The Confederates have sustained to-day the most ignom an overwhelming force as General Grant had concentrated around Chattanooga.--Gen. Bragg abandoned also the whole of Chattanooga Valley, and the frenches and breastwond did not number less than 85,000 veteran troops. The Confederate army, under Bragg, Hardee, and Breckinridge, did not number half so many. Longstreet's Virginia been better not to have accepted battle to-day, but have retired last night. Gen. Bragg thought, however, that there was not time, after the loss of Lookout, to get ntage of bring able to manœuvre his army upon the cord of a semi-circle, whilst Bragg could move only upon the arc. But let us proceed with the battle, the stran of it retiring under orders, but the greater part in unmitigated rout. Gen. Bragg did all he could to rally the fugitives and reform the broken line. He expos
me of the stores were shipped off by the railroad; the remainder was destroyed. The army was put in motion by two o'clock at night on the road to Ringgold, and Gen. Bragg and Gen. Hardee left at daylight next morning. The road was as had as it could be, and but for the friendly light afforded by the moon on that and the precedinn forward a mixed column of mounted infantry, artillery, and cavalry, which was harassing our rear guard, under command of Gen. Gist, considerably. At one time Gen. Bragg ordered the wagons towards the rear to be moved out of the road and parked with a view, it is said, of having them burnt rather than let them fall into the handacuation of Chattanooga in September, and closing with the present retreat; and, while I shall not gloss over the error of any one, I shall be able to show that Gen. Bragg has had a most difficult task to perform; that he behaved with unsurpassed courage on the field; and that, if he has been unfortunate, he has also been devoted
--It would appear from the following excerpt from the Louisville Journal of a recent date that Prentice thinks that Thomas's trouble would only have commenced when Bragg should have fallen back to Atlanta. A telegraphic report from Chattanooga is that Bragg's army is retreating in the direction of Rome and Atlanta. This may oBragg's army is retreating in the direction of Rome and Atlanta. This may or may not be true. Atlanta is a powerful position, more powerful even than Chattanooga, and it would unquestionably be held for a considerable time against our troops by a far interior force. Gen. Thomas would have to advance slowly upon Atlanta, for the railroad would of course be destroyed in the front, and he would be gettorresponding facilities exist on our side. But this is a trouble which is perhaps without remedy. We know not on what day three fourths of the combined armies of Bragg and Lee may strike either the Army of the Cumberland or the Army of the Potomac, and yet if any great Federal movement were made from one of our two armies in the

advance upon Atlanta is a greater. It is a great satisfaction to the country to know that Gen. Bragg's desire to be recalled has been compiled with. We have no doubt that Gen. Bragg is a brave sGen. Bragg is a brave soldier and a true patriot, and that he has done the best he could do. No blame ought to be attached to him, for he has felt for a long time that he was in a false position, and has repeatedly desired undertaking anything, he is almost sure to be followed up by his enemy, and to incur defeat. Gen. Bragg ought to have been removed long since. He had been guilty of the greatest crime that can be lnlucky General, as sailors do not fight with half their natural spirit in an unlucky ship. If Gen. Bragg had been the greatest Captain that ever wore a sword, it would have been unjust to him and to his soldiers to have retained him in command. Of Gen. Hardee, who succeeds Gen. Bragg, we have never heard anything that is not highly creditable to him as a soldier and a man. He is in the very

Through the energy of the Signal Corps, the following dispatch from General Joseph E Johnston was received at General Bragg's headquarters yesterday afternoon. From General Johnston's known modesty in announcing a victory, we are at liberty to inform that our arms in Northern Georgia have achieved a decided success. Indeed, the news may be regarded as the glad ladings of a glorious victory: Marietta, June 27. General Branton Bragg: The enemy advanced on our whole line to day. They assaulted French, Cheatham, Cleburne, Stevenson and Quarles, by whom they were repulsed. On the rest of the line the skirmishing was severe. Their loss in supposed to be great. Ours is known to be small. J. E. Johnston, General. From Morgan's command. We have information from a reliable source that Gen John H Morgan's command has safely a
