the river. The stout and determined resistance made by the spirited troop caused him to send to Nashville to General McCook, who was left in command there with fifteen thousand troops, to form a junction with him. Against this, however, Governor Andy Johnson protested, alleging that it would leave him and the city defenceless; that he should not feel safe there; and threatening that if the troops were taken away, he would leave immediately after for Washington city. Gen. McCook accordingly le the arch traitor, taking ten thousand with him. This would indicate that Gen. Buell's army numbered one hundred and twenty regiments, and probably not less than one hundred thousand men. The day after these troops left under Gen. McCook, Gov. Johnson deposed the Mayor and Council of the city, and placed them under heavy bonds to meet him every day at the Capitol, at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, for trial. The object of this was to assure him of their presence in the city. Upon deposin

We are sorry to be disposed to credit the latter statement, for Governor Johnson had often expressed his determination never to be taken prisoner — that he would sooner die upon the field; yet it is possible that though Captain Monroe may have a better knowledge of his fall than Gen. Breckinridge could have had, yet, whiMonroe may have a better knowledge of his fall than Gen. Breckinridge could have had, yet, whilst he supposed he was killed outright, he may have been so disabled as that he could fight no longer, and was thus against his will taken prisoner.
