I send again to General Rousseau, and am soon after informed that neither he nor Loomis' battery can be found. Troops are reported to be falling back hastily, and in disorder, on my left. I send a staff officer to the right, and ascertain that Scribner's and Shepperd's brigades are gone. I conclude that the contingency has arisen to which General Rousseau referred — that is to say, that hell has frozen over-and about face my brigade and march to the rear, where the guns appear to be hammeringunders until nightfall. The artillery saved the army. The battle during the whole day was terrific. I find that soon after the fight began in the cedars, our division was ordered back to a new line, and that the order had been delivered to Scribner and Shepperd, but not to me. They had, consequently, retired to the second position under fire, and had suffered most terribly in the operation; while my brigade, being forgotten by the division commander, or by the officer whose duty it was to

We called in a body on General Rousseau, and found him reading Les Miserables. He apologized for his shabby appearance by saying that he had become interested in a foolish novel. Colonel Scribner expressed great aColonel Scribner expressed great admiration for the characters Jean Val Jean and Javort, when the General confessed to a very decided anxiety to have Javort's neck twisted. This is the feeling of the reader at first; but when he finds the old granite man taking his own life as punishment for swerving once from what he considered to be the line of duty, our admiration for him is scarcely less than that we entertain for Jean Val Jean.

Crittenden was taken, and lost quite a number of men, horses, and one gun, in the battle of Stone river. May, 28 At midnight orderlies went clattering around the camps with orders for the troops to be supplied with five days provisions, and in readiness to march at a moment's notice. We expected to be sent away this morning, but no orders have yet come to move. Mrs. Colonel B. F. Scribner sent me a very handsome bouquet with her compliments. Mr. Furay accompanied Vallandigham outside the Federal lines, and received from him a parting declaration, written in pencil and signed by himself, wherein he claimed that he was a citizen of Ohio and of the United States, brought there by force and against his will, and that he delivered himself up as a prisoner of war.

At night good officer. Colonel Harker's brigade has been relieved from duty at the fortifications, and is now encamped near us, on the Liberty road. June, 21 Mrs. Colonel Scribner and Mrs. Colonel Griffin stopped at my tent-door for a moment this morning. They were on horseback, and each had a child on the saddle. They were giving Mrs. Scribner's children a little ride.

Returning we called on Colonel Scribner, remained an hour, and reached Decherd after nightfall. My request for leave of absence was lying on the table approved and recommended by Negley and Thomas, but indorsed not granted by Rosecrans. General Rousseau has left, and probably will not return. The best of feeling has not existed between him and the commanding geneolds at present. I thought, from the very affectionate manner with which he clung to my hand and squeezed it, that possibly, in taking leave of his friends, he had burdened himself with that oat which is said to be one too many Hobart says that Scribner calls him Hobart up to two glasses, and further on in his cups ycleps him Hogan.

tered something in a low tone to an officer standing by, and Sherman at once demanded to know what it was. well, General, was the reply, he said that a General with such a hat as you have on had no right to talk to him about a uniform. Sherman was wearing a battered hat of the style known as stovepipe. Pulling it off, he looked at it, and, bursting into a laugh, called out: Young man, you are right about the hat, but you ought to have your uniform. on the 20th, the 38th Indiana (Colonel B. F. Scribner) arrived, and soon after four other regiments. Sherman moved forward to Elizabethtown, not finding any available position at Muldraugh's Hill.

aking position on Bald Knob, 700 yards from enemy's main works, and from which the most vigorous shelling was kept up daily on our lines, the regiment losing 1 killed and 3 wounded. Remained in this position until the night of July 2, when the brigade moved to the left flank, only to find the enemy in retreat on the morning of July 3. Followed in pursuit at once, passing through Marietta and forcing the enemy, July 5, to near their main works on the Chattahoochee River.
