keedom was in a sensation, the telegraph keeping them electrified — and the sequel, including the startling and delightful trick of the Grant party, was the very "excelsior," the "upi de," the "upi di, "of Yankee humbug! Such an event was a Godsend! The nation was happy! Now, what sort of honor is this for a General! If Grant accepts it, he is nothing but a Yankee after all. He certainly can have no lofty ambition and no very elevated notions of true honor. Such a sword might do honor to Fremont, or Burnside, or Milroy, or even Butter; but we had thought a little batter of Grant. But McClellan's friends, although out jockeyed in the great sword race, are determined that their own Mac. shall have a sword too. We learn by late New York papers that they are getting up a grand subscription (everything the Yankees do is "grand") to buy a sword that shall be as superb and costly as Grant's. Robert E. Lee can never be defeated in the field by men who wear such swords as these!

er husband, and Fountain Rock and Bedford are both desolated! My heart aches to have such terrible tidings of the dearest spot in all the world to you. I fear I loved it too much, but my greatest grief is for our darling parents. We are young, and bear such changes better, but their life-ties were formed and riveted there. I'll write more in the morning, when fitted for it. How many will be sorry to hear all this! I read Hunter's order myself — had it in my hands and tried to keep it to send papa, but it was taken out of my hands. Your devoted sister, Tippe. This correspondent closes his letter as follows: The house was not the property of Mr. Boteler, but belonged to Mrs. Boteler, who, like a Spartan mother, has remained through all the dangers of war to protect her property and children. With the exception of the "gallant" Milroy, who deprived her of her servants, she and her daughters have received every courtesy from the generals of the contending armies.

Chattanooga, and every able-bodied man was put to work on the fortifications. At last advices, General Kilpatrick, with his cavalry, was at Dalton. No apprehensions are now felt for Chattanooga or Knoxville. General Sherman has over one hundred days rations at Atlanta. Knoxville has an abundance of provisions to stand a six months siege. At Chattanooga, the Government storehouses are full of provisions, and large supplies besides are on the ground, covered with tarpaulins. General Milroy was at Tullahoma, and General Schofield at Chattanooga. A private, trustworthy source says that, on Saturday evening, Hood's army was between Dalton and Lafayette, making for the latter place, with Sherman pressing him closely. Prominent military men say Hood's last move places him exactly in the position desired by Sherman. There was considerable excitement at Clarksville, Tennessee, in consequence of reports brought in by scouts that the rebel General Lyon intended to attack
ashville. General Hood's headquarters had been fixed at Bentwood, about six miles south of the city, on the Franklin pike. The following is one paragraph in the dispatch which will find few believers after the Franklin "victory": Generals Milroy and Rousseau are at Murfreesboro', which is amply garrisoned and defended against any rebel force which may attack it. Yesterday, a body of rebels attacked block houses Nos. 6 and 7, near Murfreesboro!. They were gallantly fought by the garrison, and soon a body of troops was sent by Milroy from Murfreesboro', who attacked the rebels with such effect that they were driven off in confusion, losing six pieces of artillery and a number of prisoners. Matters at the front to-day are quieter than usual. No artillery that can be seen has yet been placed in position by the rebels. A dispatch from Louisville, dated the 6th instant, says: A special dispatch to the Journal, dated Nashville, December 6; says the rebels lost a
as attacked by General Bates's rebel division, with a battery of artillery. Seventy-four shots were fired at it, doing, however, no damage. The same afternoon, three regiments, with a section of artillery, went from Murfreesboro', under General Milroy. The enemy's force was unknown. Our troops attacked and routed the enemy. The Union loss was four killed and forty wounded. The enemy's loss is unknown. Night coming on, our forces returned within the fort. On Monday last, the enemy nemy's loss largely exceed ours. In this fight we captured two hundred and seven prisoners, including eighteen commissioned officers. Two guns and twelve Napoleons were captured, and one is now in position on the fort. Just previous to General Milroy's attack on the rebels, Buford's division of cavalry attacked Murfreesboro' and entered the town, shelling it fiercely and destroying many houses. General Roussean, with one regiment of infantry and artillery, drove them out of the town.
ded taken at Franklin. We have captured four major-generals, including Generals Jackson and Johnston, as well as Brigadier-Generals Smith and Roger. Hood had sixty-five pieces of artillery. We have captured fifty-four pieces. The enemy's killed and wounded is a little less than our own. Our entire loss will not reach 3,500. None of our general officers were injured. This is the handsomest victory of the war. Forrest gave Murfreesboro' another trial, and was repulsed. Rousseau and Milroy drove him from the town. Our late victory at Franklin was not exaggerated in the least. The rebel General Johnston says that their loss was five thousand in killed and wounded. He states that six rebel generals were killed and four wounded in that engagement. He saw Major-General Pat. Cleburne's body. He was shot through the heart. The whole rebel loss at Franklin, on the 20th ultimo, was six thousand. Ours is officially reported at one thousand and nine hundred. Stoneman has giv
Oil Wells in Tennessee--oil reached at twelve feet, in Franklin county. --We yesterday met General Milroy, from whom we learn that a company had been boring for oil on Marrowbone creek, about twenty-five miles from this city, and that they had "struck ile" in large quantities at a distance of three hundred and seventy-two feet. The well is a flowing one, and the parties are almost insane their success. We did not ascertain the number of barrels per day which come from the well, but the quantity was large. Another company "struck ile " at a distance of twelve and a half feet, on Rock creek, in Franklin county, a day or two since, and others are boring in the vicinity. There appears to be no end to the oil in this State, and now that it is no longer encumbered by slavery, its mineral resources will be developed until it will be the richest section of the Union.--Nashville Union.
