The advance of Rosecrans against Bragg at about this time had prevented the co-operation of Buckner, and Morgan determined to push on into India time. Troops were now drawn from each army and sent to other fields of service.

In returning to Chattanooga, Rosecrans commenced the formidable line of fortificati to Lookout Mountain, and its vicinity, when Rosecrans retired to Chattanooga, he gained possessionuntain ranges that skirt it. He thus cut off Rosecrans from direct communication with his bases of ers in the West, to give all possible aid to Rosecrans. See page 131. Grant was then in New Orleuarters in the field.

In addition to these were two 30-pounder Parrott field-guns, and three Requa batteries of rifle barrels for defensive service. The distance of these batteries from Fort Sumter was about four thousand yards. He had also opened his second parallel, six hundred yards in advance of his first, in which three heavy breaching-batteries named respectively Brown, Rosecrans, and Meade, were speedily made ready. These were composed of two 200-pounder and five 100-pounder Parrott guns, all trained upon Fort Wagner, Battery Gregg behind it, and Fort Sumter beyond. Besides these, there were four breaching-batteries established on the left, a little over four thousand yards from Fort Sumter, named Hayes, Reno, Stevens, and Strong. These mounted one 300-pounder, two 200-pounders, four 100-pounders, and four 20-pounder Parrott guns. Near the Beacon House were fi

s restrained by superior authority. His hold on Texas is by a feeble tenure, and the confining of Taylor westward of the Atchafalaya may be of very short duration. Steele has a considerable army at Little Rock, threatening Taylor's flank, and Rosecrans, who was succeeded by Thomas in the command of the Army of the Cumberland, is at the head of the Department of the Missouri. Between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian chain of mountains little more than guerrilla operations are seen; wre considering the great campaigns of the principal armies, let us notice other important movements in the country between the mountains and the Mississippi River, and beyond that stream. When General Sherman was ordered to the assistance of Rosecrans, he left General McPherson in command at Vicksburg. Page 158. That officer soon found the Confederates swarming again upon the railway running north and south in the rear of Vicksburg, and so, at the middle of October, he took the divisions

His army was so worn, man and beast, that Rosecrans sent steamboats to Cape Girardeau for them, Price's retreat, and at the same time asked Rosecrans, by telegraph, to order Smith to the former place.

She was several times arrested on suspicion of being an enemy to the Confederacy, but proof was always wanting. She was once in Forrest's custody; and at one time she was confined a week at Bragg's Headquarters in Murfreesboroa, where she was paroled to report when called for, to be sent to Atlanta. Rosecrans sent Bragg in that direction so suddenly that he seems to have forgotten Mrs. Cliffe. Under every circumstance of peril, disdain and weariness, that noble woman stood firm in her allegiance to the Government and to Christian duty; and by her manifold public services, and labors and sacrifices for the comfort of the sick, and wounded, and dying Union soldiers, she won an unfading chaplet of honor and gratitude from her countrymen, which ought not to be unnoticed by the chronicler.

Subsequently to my coming on duty here, the events of the war threw upon your hands a large body of paroled officers and men (over 30,000) captured by General Grant at Vicksburg. and not long afterward some 6,000 or more captured by General Banks at Port Hudson. Suddenly, and without any proper conference or understanding with me, and but a few days prier to the important events at Chickamauga, as if for the express purpose of increasing the force of General Bragg against General Rosecrans, you gave me notice that, on the next day after the date of that notice, you would declare exchanged a large portion of the troops which had been captured by General Grant. Further, in relation to the conduct of the Confederates, in this matter, General Merideth says, in his letter of the 25th of August; 1868: Another cause of the suspension of the cartel was its constant violation by the rebels, in making illegal declarations of exchange, for the purpose of putting men into the fie
