njoyed the luxury of a delightful climate and picturesque scenery. When the war broke out he left his home. The hill was soon stripped of its trees, scarred by trenches, and crowned with a heavy battery, built by Bragg; and a week before our visit his house was burned by accident. The ruined walls of it may be seen in the foreground of the picture on page 163. Headquarters of Thomas and Sherman. this house was on Walnut Street, near Fort Sherman. It belonged to an Englishman named Richardson, who had espoused the, cause of the Confederates. From Cameron's Hill we rode to the Cemetery, in the direction of the Missionaries' Ridge, where Chaplain Van Horn officiated at the funeral of the child of a captain at the post. When the solemn service was over we carefully examined the Cemetery grounds and the holy work going on there under the direction of the chaplain. The Cemetery was beautifully laid out in the form of a shield, on an irregular knoll, whose summit is forty or f

One bridge — an important one, near Lafayette — was left standing, and over that he passed with a large drove of cattle and other plunder, and nearly all fresh horses, and escaped under cover of an attack on Colliersville, by General Richardson. This attack misled Grierson, who was waiting and watching for Forrest at La Grange; and the wily guerrilla had too much the start when Grierson, properly informed, pressed on in pursuit, to be easily caught. Grierson gave up the chase at

the Confederates with wild fury, caused a large portion to throw down their arms, while the remainder sought safety in a most disorderly flight westward, pursued many miles, long after dark, by the cavalry of Merritt and McKenzie. Mr. Swinton, in his Campaigns of the Army of the Potomac, page 600, says of Warren, who was in the van of the charging column, his horse was fatally shot within a few feet of the breastworks, and he, himself, was in imminent peril, when a gallant officer (Colonel Richardson of the Seventh Wisconsin) sprang between him and the enemy, receiving a severe wound, but shielding from hurt the person of his loved commander. during this grandly fought battle, General Sheridan, who was watching and directing the movements, became impatient at the seeming tardiness of Warren, and when he saw Crawford's division oblique, and Ayres's give way, he conceived the idea that the troops were not managed with proper skill and decision. He at once issued an order deprivin

A speech on Lincoln's message from a Newly-elected U. S. Senator. Hon. W. A. Richardson, now in the Federal House of Representatives, has been elected by the Illinois Legislature to the vacant rest in the U. S. Senate. Last week, in the House, Mr. Richardson made a speech scathing the gorilla. He said: Mr. Chairman--TMr. Richardson made a speech scathing the gorilla. He said: Mr. Chairman--The annual Message recently sent to this House by the President of the United States is the most remarkable of any that has over been delivered to Congress. It is remarkable for what it says, and still more remarkable for what it omits to say. One half of the twenty-one pages which it covers is devoted to the negro. No page, no sand fairly, and attempted to do my duty in this great crisis of our country. The course to be pursued by the New Senator.

Mr. Richardson was nominated by a Legislative caucus of that State, which adopted a series of resolutions denouncing the Lincoln desof hostilities and the assembling of a Convention. These resolutions we publish to- day, together with a speech from Mr. Richardson himself, taking very strong grounds against the despotic acts of Lincoln. These resolutions are in themselves important; but their consequence is greatly strengthened by the intelligence that Richardson has been elected to the Senate by the Illinois Legislature, receiving sixty six out of a hundred--the entire number of both houses. We hope this may be true. lly demoralized society at the North. It is true that the men who are making this bold movement in Illinois, and Mr. Richardson at their head, studiously persevere in the idea of that impossibility: the restoration of the old Union--They could d

There being no choice, the name of John B. Floyd was dropped. Mr. Richardson, of Mercer, re-nominated Gen. J. B.

Another message was received from the Senate, asking the concurrence of the House in a post- ponement of the joint order until to-morrow morning at 10½ o'clock. The House concurred, and on motion of Mr. Richardson the House at 6½ o'clock, adjourned until to-morrow morning, at 10 o'clock. The balloting was continued until eight were reached without a choice, and with varying results, during which time the name of Judge Allen was withdrawn and that
