een too profitable to Nashville and Nashville people. I will endeavor to show how in a future letter. Their interest bound them to the Confederacy, and that is the strongest inducement with which it is possible to tempt nature to be base. General Buell has been too kind. Good men have not been rewarded, nor have bad men been punished. The people laugh at General Buell's efforts to conciliate. They treat him and his men with open disdain and scorn. The lines are too loose. A wholesome fGeneral Buell's efforts to conciliate. They treat him and his men with open disdain and scorn. The lines are too loose. A wholesome fear would benefit them. We want here a little more of the stringency of General Halleck. I see no remedy for the harshness here but a little less coaxing and more punishment. Within the last few days, since the movement South became general, the people have been particularly impudent and offensive. Men do not make any demonstrations publicly, but it is plain by whom women, girls, and boys are pushed in to offer the grossest insults to officers and men. Any one of the demonstrations made
f editorial, written before the fuller details of the telegraph came to hand, represented that Gen. Buell commanded the Federalists. This was an error. General Grant was in command, and had not been joined by Buell when the battle took place. As our forces attacked the enemy, it is probable that the plan was to defeat him before a junction with Buell could be effected. We perceive that Grant'Buell could be effected. We perceive that Grant's column was estimated by Federal authority at 60,000 men. How many Buell has, we are unable to say; but conjecture that his column cannot much exceed that under Gen. Grant, which included, we believBuell has, we are unable to say; but conjecture that his column cannot much exceed that under Gen. Grant, which included, we believe, a considerable force from Halleck's division. Whatever it be, we cannot doubt that it will meet a fate similar to that just submitted to by the 60,000 or more under Gen. Grant. We apprehend BuelBuell will not hazard an engagement with our victorious forces under Beauregard, but will find it necessary to withdraw to some position nearer his base of operations. He is a very accomplished officer
scape. Later from Nashville. The Memphis Appeal, of the 3d, says: We learn from parties who left Nashville as late as Saturday, that the gunboat and transports at that place had found it necessary to leave on account of the low stage of water. The army at Columbia had crossed Duck river, and had reached Mount Pleasant on Monday, on the road leading towards Savannah, where they would probably arrive today or to-morrow. McCook and Nelson were in command of the advance. Gen Buell was bringing up the rear, and had arrived at Columbia. From Island 10--official. The following information was communicated by telegraph to the commandant at Memphis, under date of April 1st, 1862: The bombardment of Madrid Bend and Island 10 commenced on the 15th instant, and continued constantly night and day. The enemy has fired several thousand thirteen-inch and rifle shells. On the 17th a general attack with five gunboats and four mortar boats was made, which lasted 9
h: "Private dispatches to as say that we have gained the most complete victory of the war. We have driven the enemy to their transports. We have 5,000 prisoners. One of Gen. Hindman's leg was shot off Gen. Breckinridge won immortal honor; his clothes were shot off, and two horses were killed under him. Gen. Pienties and other Generals are among the prisoners." The extent and importance of this victory are difficult to estimate from the data before us. Our dispatches state that Gen. Buell did not arrive in time to take part in the struggle, from which we infer that no portion of his corp was engaged and that it was the heavy column of the enemy commanded by General Grant that suffered the disastrous shock, and went down beneath the resistless valor of our arms. What this column numbered, we are not prepared to say; but Gen. Prentices, who was taken prisoner, estimates it at $5,000. Our combined force was considerably larger, and is believed to be sufficiently strong in num

That the thanks of the Department are also given to Generals Our and Siegel, and the officers and soldiers of their commands, for the matchless gallantry at the bloody battle of Pea Ridge, and to Major-Generals Grant and Buell, and their forces, for the glorious repulse of Beauregard, at Pittsburg, in Tennessee, and to Major-General Pope and his officers and soldiers for the bravery and skill displayed in their operations against the rebels and traitors entrenched at Ik spectators started, rumors of an unfavorable character with a view to a fleet prices, and in this they were partially successful. One of these rumors was that the rallied at Corinth, and, with large reinforcements, were again advancing upon Gen. Buell. Of course, there was not the slightest authority for these, stories, but the over credulous, in many cases, them down. The Merrimac, for the hundredth time, also, was reported as having come down, destroyed the Vanderbilt, shelled our camp
e empties of boasters, are determined to burn homes ends and goods, to destroy the produce of their fields, to carry off their families, their negroes, their cattle, and all that they have and to leave every place a desert from which the invader forces them to retire. The real beginning of the campaign may now be witnessed. From Tennessee we have but meagre accounts. In this region the Confederates have been thoroughly beaten. They seem to be wholly unprepared for the vigor of Grant, Buell and the rest of the Western Generals. The consequence has been the occupation of Central Tennessee by a Federal army, and the retreat of the Confederates to the Southern limits of the State. Here, however, they are said to be preparing for a stand. General Beauregard is in command, and place which is given in the telegram as Chavenoon, but which is probably Cleveland or Chattanooga, is their headquarters. These places are almost on the frontiers, of Georgina, but it is beyond a doubt tha

Pennsylvania and one Iowa regiment had mutinied and refused to go farther with the Federal army. Their arms were taken from them and they were sent North. Gen. Buell's entire command consisted of ninety-nine regiments, ranging from 253 to 481 men, making 35,000. Deducting the sick, the deserters, and the mutinous troops sent back, it would leave Buell's force at Savannah about 22,000. Lieutenant Crowly, of the 11th Louisiana, who lost his right hand at Belmont, lost his left hand at Shiloh. He still clings to our cause, refusing to resign. Letter picked up on the battle-field.

She was very well, but was making preparations to move into town.--Moll has a brother, sergeant in the 33d Ohio regiment, row serving under Gen Buell. I have been expecting to see him for some time but have not as yet. Moll is a good girl, and I think a great deal of her. You must know her intimately to

It was known, also, or rather believed, that another division of Buell's army, probably accompanied by Buell in person, was approaching on the previous day, and had doBuell in person, was approaching on the previous day, and had doubtless arrived at the scene. Vigorous preparations were therefore made to resist the assault, which was deemed almost certain at an early hour on Monday.--Nor were these ill timed. Those of ouif my memory correctly serves me, and it is hardly probable that, with any force he can command, Buell would march his army that distance, away from his gunboats, on a flanking movement. It is now supposed that Buell was not in the battle of Shiloh, flag or last, though a considerable portion of his army may have been; but was engaged in superintending the movement on Huntsville. Islan
n being so informed, both regiments laid down their arms and refused to fight, when Beauregard detailed four regiments to guard them as prisoners. It was not known that Gen Habeck was in command here, but it was the general impression that Gen Buell was at the head, and that our army was retreating of Nashville. Col. J. C. Kelton, A. A. G., arrived here to-day, relieving Captain McAllen who, was obliged to go to Cincinnati on account of the health. Louisville, April 29.--One hundred and seven prisoners, captured by Gen. Mitchell, at Huntsville, arrived here to-night, en route for Camp Chase. Cairo, April 29.--The steamer Bacon, which left Pittsburg last evening, has arrived here. Generals Halleck, Buell and Grant have moved their headquarters near the front of our lines personally superintending all the details attending the advance of the whole force, observer which were hourly expected.
