page, wagons, horses, and artillery had to be left — a great sacrifice, but not to be estimated in the balance with saving the army. This bold and masterly movement was accomplished on this night, and the next morning saw our army on the south of the Cumberland, and the enemy in Camp Beech Grove. The crossing was effected during the night by the aid of the steamboat Noble Ellis, which had before ascended the river with supplies, and which was efficiently commanded on this occasion by Capt. Spiller, of the cavalry. The river crossed, it was necessary to move somewhere in search of provisions and forage. If no enemy had appeared, the quitting of this portion of Kentucky had been gravely considered and almost determined upon, and in a few days would have been compelled. It was impossible to move further into Kentucky, from the barrenness of the mountains between that point and the Blue Grass; and all the counties on the left and right, and the northern counties of East-Tennessee

in the capture of Murfreesboro by General Forrest, in which he displayed his forte as signally as General Morgan had shown his peculiar genius. On the 13th of July he left Chattanooga with the Texas Rangers of Col. John A. Wharton, and the Second Georgia cavalry of Col. W. J. Lawton, and made a forced march of fifty miles to Altamont, arriving at McMinnville on the night of the 11th. Here he was joined by Col. J. J. Morrison, with a portion of the First Georgia cavalry, two companies of Spiller's battalion under Major Smith, and two companies of Kentuckians under Capts. W. J. Taylor and Waltham, increasing his force to 1,400. Resting until 1p. m. on the 12th he marched for Murfreesboro, fifty miles, and arrived there at 4:30 a. m. on the 13th, capturing the pickets without firing a gun. The Federal forces were under the command of Gen. T. T. Crittenden, of Indiana, and consisted of portions of the Ninth Michigan infantry, Seventh Pennsylvania cavalry, Third Minnesota infantry and

of life membership. The Conference then went into an election of delegates to the General Conference. The votes of several absent members were allowed to be cast, these members having prepared their ballots and confided them to members of the Conference in attendance. Upon the first ballot the following persons were elected; W. A. Smith, D. S. Doggett, L. M. Lee, G. W. Langhorne, J. E. Edwards, Leonidas Rosser, Henry B. Cowles, W. W. Bennett, J. D. Couling, and Wm. B. Rowzie Messrs. Spiller, Rowe, and Bain were granted leave of absence. And then the Conference adjourned with the benediction. The Conference assembled at half-past 7 o'clock, in the basement of the Cumberland street Church, and was called to order by Rev. H. B. Cowles, who stated that the Bishop had requested that he would preside at the evening session. The Bishop was in council with the Presiding Elders. Prayer was offered by Dr. Carter. It was resolved to proceed with the unfinished b
unded, &c. We gather a few additional facts in relation to the late "Kuntucky Disaster" from the Knoxville Register. Eight Confederate regiments engaged fourteen regiments of the enemy: The false information of the enemy's force was brought by one Johnson, known familiarly as "Hogback Johnson." When our forces reached their breastworks, Gen. Crittenden concluded to fall back to the south side of the river. The little steamer which had lately arrived was taken charge of by Capt. Spiller. Our infantry were safely transported across, under the fire of the enemy's batteries, posted on the heights above. We lost the greater portion of our cavalry horses, tents and munitions. Gen. Carroll now has command of the division. Two of General Zollicoffer's aids--Major Fogg and Maj. Sheilds--were badly wounded. Whether the enemy had crossed the Cumberland river we are not advised; but our forces expected they would do so. General Carroll is reported as making a vali

s, burnt the jail and some eight or ten private residences. All report that the ladies of Wytheville acted with the greatest heroism and cheered the men in their unequal contest. Many residents were absent from the town at the time, and some of the citizens acted most gallantly on the occasion. Col. T. J. Boyd, of the Wytheville hotel, generously opened his house and freely tendered his hospitality to all who went to Wytheville to aid in its defence. He was afterwards taken prisoner. Mrs. Spiller, of Wytheville, displayed great heroism. Our men entered her dwelling house and shot the Yankees down from the windows, she encouraging them on. A few passengers on the Eastern train acted most bravely. Dr. S, of Cumberland county, (on a bridal trip,) left his bride at this post and went on to Wytheville to participate in the fight. We mention these instances to show the spirit of Close who took part in the fight. The Yankees first made an attack on the Salt Works, but were there m
