sed battle, is not to be denied. Crittenden, through a miscalculation of the strength of the enemy, and, it is believed, contrary to express instructions from Gen. Johnston, made an untimely advance and suffered seriously by reason of the superior force brought against him. Enough is known, however, to place the losses of the enemn. With the finest troops in the world around him; with fortifications that would "laugh a siege to scorn," and with able and brave counsellors at his side, General Johnston awaits the approach of the grand army with perfect composure. I have carefully examined the fortifications on the hill overlooking Bowling Green, and can onthat it surpasses anything I have ever seen in the military line. In my judgement, it is impregnable; and it will stand to tell to distant ages the genius of Sydney Johnston. The left wing rests on Russellville. Here Floyd and Buckner are posted with a certain number of men, and are anxious to measure swords with Tom Crittenden.
