The staff officer with me, if I remember correctly, was Lieutenant Charles B. Rogan, who now lives in Sumner county, Tennessee, either heard the conversation or I immediately informed him of it, for it was discussed as we returned to our lines, and on our arrival at our bivouac made it known to Captain H. J. Cheeny, my A. A. G. (now a citizen of this county), and also to other staff officers, nearly all of whom are yet living. You can imagine my surprise next morning when I learned the enemy had come from our front. The foregoing is in substance what was said on the occasion referred to as I recollect

The Situation in Middle Tennessee. The Chattanooga Rebel, of the 27th ultimo, says: "There are rumor from the front to the effect that Rosecrans has been massing large reinforcements, just through from Kentucky, in the counties of Sumner and Wilson. If this be true, his intention is to advance, when the roads permit, not directly upon our forces at Shelbyville, but upon Tullahoma by way of Manchester and McMinnville. The troops stationed at Nashville will probably make a faint upon Shelbyville, but no absolute assault is expected from that side of the enemy's line. The entire strength of the army in Murfreesboro' is estimated at fifty thousand. Our reliable reports from the Northern portion of the State represent the reinforcements to consist of three divisions, each not less than ten thousand strong. The division of Jeff C. Davis, with Johnson's cavalry, stationed in Williamson county, are put down at twelve thousand. The forces at Nashville do not exceed ten thousand.

They had erected seven strong stockades in the public square, and felled all the timber on the southeast side of the town, and constructed out of it a regular abatis. The pressing of negroes is widespread and indiscriminate. Immense numbers in the counties named had been taken, and the owners when they applied for
