; that a dispatch to that effect has been received by General Buell.
Another insists that he has obtained a decided advantage, and is heating the shot to burn Richmond; while still another affirms that he has utterly destroyed Richmond, and, Marius-like, is sitting amid the ruins of that illfated city, eating sow belly and doe-christers.
Am detailed to serve on court-martial.
Detail for the court.
General James A. Garfield.

Colonel Marc Mundy.
Colonel John Beatty.
Convened at Athens at ten o'clock this morning.
Organized and adjourned to meet at ten to-morrow.
General Buell proposes, I understand, to give General Mitchell's administration of affairs in North Alabama a thorough overhauling.
It is asserted that the latter has been interested in cotton speculations; but investigation, I am well satisfied, will show that General Mitchell has been strictly honest, and has done n
The letter was headed Nashville, and he was evidently intent upon deceiving his lady-love into the belief that he had penetrated the Yankee lines, and was surrounded by foes.
Had the letter reached her fair hands, what earnest prayers would have gone up for the succor of this bold and reckless youth.

My black is also in excellent condition, and certainly very fast.
My race has not yet come off.
Received a box of catawba wine and pawpaw brandy from Colonel James G. Jones, half of which I was requested to deliver to General Rosecrans, and the other half keep to drink to the Colonel's health, which at present is very poor.
Colonel Gus Wood called this afternoon.
He is one of those who were captured on the railroad train near Lavergne, 10th of last April, and has returned to camp via Tullahoma, Chattanooga, and Richmond.
He says the rebel troops are in good condition and good spirits; thinks there is an immense force in our front, and that it wou
