We called in a body on General Rousseau, and found him reading Les Miserables. He apologized for his shabby appearance by saying that he had become interested in a foolish novel. Colonel Scribner expressed great admiration for the characters Jean Val Jean and Javort, when the General confessed to a very decided anxiety to have Javort's neck twisted. This is the feeling of the reader at first; but when he finds the old granite man taking his own life as punishment for swerv

ourt martial, and acquitted. He was promoted to brigadier-general while the investigation was going on. On the same day, June 4. General Negley, who, in a forced march of twenty miles, had climbed over an almost impassable mountain, northeastward of Stevenson, surprised a Confederate camp of cavalry under General Adams at its foot, at a place called Sweeden's Cove, on the road between Winchester and Jasper, and drove them from it. After a very severe skirmish near Jasper, in which Colonel Hambright led the Nationals, the Confederates were routed and dispersed, leaving as spoils their ammunition and commissary wagons with supplies; also arms scattered along the pathway of their flight, and twelve prisoners. Adams escaped without his hat, sword, or horse, borrowing one of the latter from a negro on which to fly. Negley lost two killed and seven wounded.

d forward, driving the Confederate cavalry, under Wheeler, before them, who made a stand at Tunnel Hill Ridge, a short distance from the village. There a line of log breastworks stretched along the crest of the ridge, and a battery of four pieces was planted in a commanding position. These were opened upon the advancing column, but were soon silenced by the Second Minnesota and Nineteenth Indiana Batteries, when Wheeler, finding his position flanked by troops under General Morgan and Colonel Hambright, fell back. It was now between two and three o'clock in the afternoon. The Nationals passed on, Morgan and Colonel D. McCook in advance, keeping up a close pursuit of Wheeler, and at five o'clock Feb. 24. approached the range of hills called Rocky Face Ridge, one of which, near Dalton, rises into a lofty peak, called Buzzard's Roost.

As for the route, the river will be the most comfortable; the railroad the quickest. Perhaps time is of consequence. Please let me know when to expect you. D. C. Buell. Special orders, no. 12. Hdqrs.

and by following a furlong further, you enter the town of Tunnel Hill. To the right of Smith's house is a wooded range, intersected by ravines, behind which Colonel Hambright's brigade was posted, after our cavalry had sought shelter from the rebel artillery. Carlin was in the centre of our line, along the road. Off to the left places, rising up behind Tunnel Hill Ridge. Such is a picture of what has already been the scene of a combat, and may yet witness a great battle. While Colonel Hambright was putting his brigade into such a position as to threaten the ene my's left, General Morgan, commanding brigade in General Davis's division, had been sent ing along the summit of the ridge, toward the rebel works. Seeing themselves thus outflanked by General Morgan upon their right, and seriously threatened by Colonel Hambright upon the left, the rebels abandoned their position and fled precipitately, without firing a gun from the time Morgan first appeared. Thus, with but trifling
than a brigade, would be saying that which is so well known that it might be censured as a superfluity. I did not learn his loss. I saw the fighting, and when I commend him and his brigade I speak that which I do know he well deserves. Colonel Hambright accompanied the brigade while charging, under command of Colonel Scribner, and was struck by a piece of shell in the head. There was universal regret in the army over his misfortune, for few men are more highly esteemed for his multitude of shining qualities of heart and head than Colonel Hambright. The mill on the left slope was a kind of partnership affair; and, as in matters so amicably conducted by the Generals, where one of the party steps in and gets pummelled awhile and kindly retires, to let his neighbor at his elbow feel a few stunning counters, no one with prudence will interfere without common consent, I prefer not to dispense the honors, according to my judgment, least I should drop the wreath where it does not pr

The Baltimore Sun, of the 21st, has the following: On Friday last Col. Negler's brigade embarked at Pittsburg for Louisville, a portion of them on the steamer Sir William Wallace, whose hurricane deck, in consequence of the weight, gave way, injuring a number of persons. Adjutant C. R. Fralley, of Col. Hambright's Lancaster regiment, received a concussion of the brain, by which he was so much depressed that his recovery is a matter of doubt. Daniel Lancis, a private in the same regiment, was thrown from the hurricane roof to the lower deck, receiving a frightful wound on the head, and serious injuries of the back. Recovery doubtful. Corporal Michael Coyle, John Oramer, and Charles Heckler, privates, all of company B, were more or less injured. Daniel Clemens, a musician, had his wrist broken
account is a glowing one, but some truth comes out in its summary of the results: Gen. Thomas was present, and superintended matters in person; and after discovering the enemy's position, became convinced that it was too strong to be carried by assault, and he therefore made preparations for a strategic movement, the nature of which, however, we deem it imprudent to mention; and therefore Cruft's division was ordered to take up a new position, thereby leaving the brigades of King and Hambright, of Johnson's division, which were in the advance, with no other support than Morgan's brigade of Jeff. C. Davis's command Mistaking this for a retreat the rebels, at about 2 o'clock A. M., on the 26th, advanced their lines, and, before they were discovered, were within twelve feet of our pickets, who were but a short distance in advance of the main body. As soon as our lines were discovered the enemy of musketry, which was returned in gallant style, for an hour and a half, and unt
