d. The enemy's dead lie scattered along the route down to the point of landing. During the whole engagement they were carrying their wounded and dying to the rear. One man who saw them on their retreat states that he met a continued stream of ambulances going and coming from their boats. On their advance they had killed some sheep, but in the hasty retreat were obliged to leave their plunder. Our troops buried forty of the enemy's dead. The force that first met the enemy consisted of the Rutledge mounted riflemen, Capt. Trenholm; Charleston light dragoons, Capt. Rutledge; Beaufort volunteer artillery, Capt. William Elliott, and an infantry company, who stubbornly and successfully contested the enemy's advance until the arrival of reenforcements. The others afterward engaged were Nelson's Virginia battery, Morgan's squadron of cavalry, Major Abney's First battalion of sharp-shooters, consisting of Capt. Chisholm's company, Capt. Allston's company, and Captain Buist's company.
Cooper: The expedition under General Forrest has fully accomplished its object. The railroads are broken in various places. A large amount of stores has been destroyed, many arms captured, and one thousand two hundred prisoners paroled. Gen. Morgan has done his work, but the full effect is not known. The enemy in Tennessee and Mississippi are without railroad and telegraphic communication with their rear. Braxton Bragg. Murfreesboro, January 1, 1863. The enemy has yielded his stronrts of subordinate commanders have been specially called for, and are soon expected, when they will be promptly forwarded. During the time the operations at Murfreesboro were being conducted, important expeditions under Brig.-Gens. Forrest and Morgan, were absent in West-Tennessee and Northern Kentucky. The reports already forwarded, show the complete success which attended the gallant brigadiers, and I commend them to the confidence of the government and gratitude of the country. I am, s

Almost simultaneously with the attack on the south, John Morgan's forces, twenty-five hundred strong, with a piece of arcompanies of Illinois troops behaved with great gallantry, Morgan was repulsed, leaving a stand of regimental colors in our . Twenty-three prisoners were captured, including two captains Morgan's artillery.

It was the intention of Morgan, no doubt, to destroy the railroad bridge, at least, think of battle, most of his men having but little clothing on.

In anticipation of pursuing Morgan in case he should give us the go-by, I had alsed a courier notifying him that I would pursue Morgan should he pass west of us, and suggesting the ctions to Colonel Boyle that if he should find Morgan in camp at Columbia not to disturb him, unless cavalry was that a citizen had told them that Morgan had left Columbia at eight o'clock the previou myself, for, had he pressed upon and followed Morgan to Springfield, I could have attacked him in f[14 more...]
army of the Rebels retreated to East-Tennessee; Gen. Buell pursued it as far as Mount Vernon or London, then fell back to the line from Louisville to Nashville. Here Major-General Rosecrans superseded him in the command by the orders of the President. As the Secretary of War has ordered a military commission to investigate the operations of Gen. Buell in this campaign, it would be obviously improper for me to express any opinion, unless specially directed to do so. The command of Brig.-Gen. Morgan at Cumberland Gap abandoned that place and retreated to the Ohio River. The alleged cause of this retreat was the want of supplies. The commanding officer, however, had just before reported that he had several weeks' provisions, and under no circumstances would he surrender that important post. An investigation of this matter has been ordered. The withdrawal of a considerable part of Gen. Grant's army to reinforce Gen. Buell and to occupy Zanesville and Cincinnati, induced the en

As soon as possible after the surrender, the rebels collected their prisoners tontil Tuesday evening before they were given a bite of food. By that time they had arrived at John Morgan's headquarters, five miles from Murfreesboro, and received there about a pint of flour apiece not exceed over one thousand nine hundred effective men of all arms. Against this little army, Morgan in person led not less than four thousand men, of whom, probably, not less than two thousand werarters of a mile and the other three miles from our camp, were guarded by our men. Consequently, Morgan selected a spot about seven miles distant, where no one ever suspected an army could effect a crio on the right, before a single shot was fired. The battle began an hour and a half later than Morgan intended, in broad daylight, by a shot from one of the four rebel reserve guns, on the opposite
n the fact is, they are under the immediate control of the department commander, and have even less liberty than the infantry. Whatever the cavalry was in the early part of the war in our late campaigns, both here and in Virginia, they have shown quite as great efficiency as the infantry. As an instance of this, Col. Kennett, with some one thousand two hundred cavalry and two pieces of artillery, parts of the First and Second brigades, held Hartsville for two weeks in the very face of both Morgan's and Forrest's cavalry and a body of infantry and eight pieces of artillery. He kept us on the continual alert, and a large scout went out every day, driving in their pickets and skirmishing with them. Our place was taken by three regiments of infantry with two pieces of cannon and a few cavalry, and the result was the capture of all in less than ten days time by the same forces opposed to us. The First brigade, commanded by the brave Colonel E. M. McCook, of the Second Indiana, were,

On the evening of December sixth, John Morgan, with his whole cavalry force of over four thousand, and eight pieces of artillery, and two regiments of infantry, (thges against Col. Taffle, of the Sixth Ohio, for cowardice, and every officer here will sustain me in it. So conscious was Morgan himself that Taffle was a coward, he paroled him, and sent him home as he would a private. I have seen some extracts tnal notifies its readers that I made a speech in front of the Galt House, in Louisville, in which I said I wanted to find Morgan. This is false in every respect. I never made a speech in Louisville of any kind. I never saw either editors of the Jolming force which was brought against us. Yet, I would have fought them to the last had there been one hundred thousand. Morgan said I was isolated from the main army, and he brought the overwhelming force, so as to take me before reenforcements wou

And, accordingly, John Morgan made a speech to his men. Behold before you, sand more to the point.
