C., takes some prestige. the affair at Belmont does not compensate for it. the enemy kills an old hare. Missouri secedes. Mason and Slidell captured. French Consul and the actresses. the lieutenant in disguise. Eastern Shore of Virginia invaded. Messrs. Breckinridge and Marshall in Richmond.

If defeated in the legislature, he may have a six years tenure in the cabinet. No

n the War Department, which I have personally made, shows the following result: General Bragg's return, 31st of August, 1863, shows under the heading present for duty, officers and men, 48,998. This return does notinclude the divisions of General Breckinridge or General Preston, the brigades of Generals Gregg and McNair, or the reenforcement brought by General Longstreet. The strength of each is accurately given in Confederate official returns. The total Confederate force available for battle at Chickamauga was as follows: General Bragg's army, 31st of August, 1863, for duty, 48,998; Longstreet's command (Hood's and McLaws's divisions), by return of Army of Northern Virginia, 31st of August, 1863, for duty, 11,716; Breckinridge's division, by his official report in Confederate reports of battles, for duty, 3769; Preston's division, by his official report in Confederate reports of battles, for duty, 4509; Brigades of Gregg and McNair, by General Bushrod Johnson's official report (So.

Breckinridge instantly advanced, and, fighting desperately, pushed across the Rossville road toward a prescribed position. Other divisions in succession towaational right center, went into action by the side of Baird, on the extreme left, and checked Breckinridge's advance; but both he and Baird were outnumbered, and the latter began to lose ground. Seveivision, and a part of Stanley's, of Wood's division, so strengthened the wavering line, that Breckinridge was thrown back in much disorder, with the loss of Generals Helm The wife of General Helm Ridge, just west of the State Road, as strongly supported by infantry as possible, to command Breckinridge's artillery, and sweep the ground to the left and rear of Baird, but it seems to have been mi
