te's purpose was to silence these batteries, pass by, and take a position where he could enfilade the faces of the fort with broadsides. Hoppin's Life of Foote, p. 222. The gunboats opened at a mile and a half distance, and advanced until within three or four hundred yards. Colonel J. E. Bailey, of the Forty-ninth Tennessee, now United States Senator from Tennessee, commanded the garrison. It was in bad plight from cold, hunger, and protracted watching, but was resolute in spirit. Captain Culbertson, a West Point graduate, commanded the artillery after the death of Dixon. Under him were Captains Ross, Bidwell, and Beaumont, who commanded the batteries. Stankiewitz, a gallant Pole, had two six-pounders and an eight-inch howitzer on the hill. They held their fire, under Pillow's orders, until the boats came within about 1,000 yards; then, at a given signal, they delivered the fire of the heavy guns with accuracy and effect; and, at about 750 yards, the lighter guns opened also.
effected. The following report was sent by General Thomas, from his headquarters at Chattanooga, to the National war department: Colonel Boone, with a force of four hundred and fifty men, Twenty-eighth Kentucky mounted infantry, and Fourth Michigan cavalry, left Rossville January twenty-first, moved through McLamore's caves, crossed Lookout Mountain into Brownton Valley; thence across Taylor's Ridge to eight miles beyond Deertown, toward Ashton, attacked camp of home guards, Colonel Culbertson, commanding, routed them, destroying camp, considerable number of arms, and other property, and retired to camp without any casualties in his force.

the fort and the troops in camp within the outer works, consisting of less than three thousand men, These were divided into two brigades — the first, under Colonel A.

The heavy artillery manned
Colonel McCarley; and the Twenty-sixth Mississippi, under Major Parker. I have seldom seen greater good judgment and impetuous gallantry shown by any officers or men. The cavalry, under Colonel Jackson, maintained the most perfect order, and were always in position to answer any summons. The batteries engaged rendered the most efficient service up to the time of my ordering the advance. The first shot fired, from the Parrott guns of Captain Hedden's battery, under the direction of Captain Culbertson, Chief of Artillery of my division, wounded Colonel Misner, and killed his orderly and three men. These facts were related by a non-commissioned officer among the prisoners. My thanks are especially due to those of my personal staff who were present. Major Watts, Inspector-General; Major Halliday, Chief Commissary; Lieutenant George Moorman, Aide-de-Camp; Lieutenant Tilghman, Aide-de-Camp ; rendered the most efficient and valuable service. I notice with great pleasure, also, Lie

seized. A quantity of dry goods and groceries, belonging to a Southern rights citizen, were loaded on the wagon, the property of one of the prisoners, and brought here yesterday. A portion of the Confederates recrossed the river and ascended the bank to take another view of the surroundings, when they discovered a man with a musket running to the river bank from a house some four or five hundred yards distant, evidently for the purpose of firing on our troops. The Lincolnites, named Culbertson, was shot and fell into the river. After burning the log-house and destroying the boat, the party returned yesterday morning, without any accident having happened to them. Health of the army at Columbus. The Columbus (Ky.)

Departures by flag-of-truce. --Four hundred and twenty-five wounded Yankee soldiers, nurses, &c., left this city yesterday morning in the steamer Schultz for Varina, whence they will take the flag-of- truce boat North in exchange for an equal number of Confederates now confined in Yankee prisons. Among the number were sent from Castle Thunder the notorious Miss Doctor Mary E. Walker, Surgeons of the Fifty-second Ohio regiment, Dr. Culbertson and Hambleton, from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and Captain Samuel Stears, who was formerly a Yankee Custom-House officer. When Miss Dr. Walker emerged from the confines of the Castle she gave vent to an audible huzzah, and raising her hat from her head made an obeisance to the officers of the prison, which plainly indicated that she had no regrets in leaving there, and would remember them in her communications which would be made after her arrival home.
