his position as Major-General. General Duke had just before won the most complete victory of his career, attacking and driving away from Marion, Va., a large force of General Stoneman's mounted infantry, who left dead and wounded on the ground, man for man, as many as Duke had under his command in the battle — a brilliant sunset in the closing career of this Kentucky soldier. Of General Breckinridge I saw a good deal, as we occupied the same room at Mr. Heilbrun's, his son, Captain Cabell Breckinridge, being with him. At Charlottee, N. C., I replenished my stores under an order from Hon. S. R. Mallory, Secretary of the Navy, upon the Naval Storekeeper, and an incident occurred which, perhaps, caused the escape of Colonel Wood when the President's party was captured in Southern Georgia--finding a lot of good blue navy shirts among the stores, he suggested taking a few to secure change of raiment to such as might need it. He had on one of these shirts the morning of the capture,

Walthall was wounded in the heel, and Gen. Maney was wounded slightly in the shoulder. The Confederacy, of Saturday, gives some additional particulars of the battle. It says: Ac the same time occupying the attention of our right wing, ranged at the foot of Missionary Ridge. Their onset was firm, but not impetuous at first, but increased in volume and vigor as the day advanced. Our troops, commanded by the heroic Gen. Breckinridge (in command of Lieut. General Hill's corps,) received the terrible odds thrown against them with a courage animated by the example of Walthal, Strahl, Mannigo, Bate, Stevenson, and others, leading divisions and brigades. It was not until l
slope of the mountain, around the north face, and thence past Craven's house to within a few hundred yards of the road leading to the top of the mountain, when Breckinridge came up with one of his brigades and assisted materially in cheeking the enemy and in finally driving him back some distance. During the afternoon it was t wing, his forces consisting of Cleburne's, Stevenson's, Walker's, commanded by Gist, and Cheatham's divisions, Cheatham having arrived the previous evening. Breckinridge commanded on the left, his divisions being Stewart's and Bate's. Patton Anderson's division, (Hindman's,) was in the centre, and had been acting under Hardee, d add that the reports in circulation in regard to Deas's brigade and other brigades in this division, beyond what is here stated, are without foundation. Breckinridge's division, commanded by Bate, and not Lewis, as has been stated, was the next on the left, and was the first in receive the enfilading fire of the enemy on th

Bates's A. A. General, are among them. The two escaped officers, who were carried to the rear when captured, says: The Yankees expected to capture Gen. Bragg and his army that night, (the 30th of November,) as an immense column was parked around our left before the attack was made in front. They say that they met a second line after dark, which hindered their getting to Chickamauga bridge and station. They boast of cutting off Longstreet and of having sent heavy reinforcements to Burnside. The Yankees admitted a repulse at Ringgold, and that, fearing another Chickamauga, they retired. The slaughter of Federal was very great along the line leading
