thus raising the price everywhere. The transportation is the expensive item. A dispatch from Gen. Johnston, at Atlanta, says the enemy having flanked him with his cavalry, he has fallen back across the Chattahooehee. Dispatches from Gen. S. D. Lee, Tupelo, state that a column of the enemy, 20,000 strong, is about marching from New Orleans against Mobile, and he fears he cannot spare men to resist them. The reserve class is not ready. Also that 15,000 of the enemy are matching from Lagrange, and he will have to dismount some of Forrest's cavalry. Gen. E. K. Smith will not cross the Mississippi to assist in repelling the foe without orders, Orders have been sent from the Secretary of War--I fear too late! Northern papers of the 8th inst. indicate a state of high excitement. Some there believe we have an army of 60,000 pouring into Pennsylvania. Gold was $2.65 for one. There is some commotion in Granit's army, and it is believed by some that he is about to retire down
Doc. 149.-reconnoissance from Lagrange. Lieutenant Smith's report. Lagrange, Tenn., August 9. Colonel Hurst: I beg leave to make the following report of a scout of which I had command, by order of Colonel Hatch: On the second instant Colonel Hatch ordered me, with sixteen men, to take a despatch to General Dodge aLagrange, Tenn., August 9. Colonel Hurst: I beg leave to make the following report of a scout of which I had command, by order of Colonel Hatch: On the second instant Colonel Hatch ordered me, with sixteen men, to take a despatch to General Dodge at Corinth. Leaving Colonel Hatch at Lexington, I started to Corinth, and on the morning of the third I met the First Alabama (Federal) cavalry on the waters of White Oak Creek, when the Major commanding requested me to let him send the message to General Dodge, and that I would go with him as a guide; to which I assented, being wt, and fifteen men. We had the fight on the north fork of White Oak Creek, about eight miles southeast of Jack's Creek. I then concluded to make my way back to Lagrange, which I did, arriving in camp on the seventh with my seventeen prisoners, neither myself nor any of my little squad having received a scratch. I respectfully

Porter's gunboats Sherman storms the Yazoo Bluffs repulsed at all points with heavy loss attempts to flank by Drumgould's Bluff ianders above. Gen. Grant's department of West Tennessee having been so enlarged Oct. 16, 1862. as to include Mississippi, he at once commenced preparations for an advance; transferring, Nov. 4. soon after, his headquarters from Jackson to Lagrange; whence he pushed out Nov. 8. Gen. McPherson, with 10,000 infantry, and 1,500 cavalry, under Col. Lec, to Lamar, driving back the Rebel cavalry. At length, all things being ready, Grant impelled Nov. 28. a movement of his army down the gr
which even horsemen could traverse. Hurlbut was aware of this, and had ordered the burning of every bridge over Wolf river. His orders were obeyed every where but at the bridge near Lafayette; and it was for that bridge that Forrest, accordingly, struck ; crossing over his army and his plunder , including a large drove of cattle, and pushing rapidly southward. This movement was covered by a fresh feint by Richardson on Colliersville; so that Gen. Grierson, who was watching for Forrest at Lagrange, was misled ; and, when the pursuit was actually commenced, the scent was too cold. Grierson followed to Holly Springs, and then desisted; Forrest getting safely away with more men and better horses than he led into Tennessee. Gen. Sherman, with four divisions of Hurlbut's and McPherson's corps, and a brigade of cavalry under Winslow, low, moved Feb. 3, 1864. eastward from Vicksburg through Jackson, crossing Pearl river on pontoons, and advancing through Brandon, Morton, Hillsboroa
od; and had done so; but, though he reached Chickasaw, Miss., on the 24th, destroying there a Rebel battery, and capturing 2 guns at Florence, he did not intercept Hood. While Hood invested Nashville, he sent 800 cavalry, with 2 guns, under Brig.-Gen. Lyon, by our right across the Cumberland to break up the Louisville railroad in Thomas's rear. Lyon was manifestly too weak to effect any thing of importance. He took Hopkinsville, Ky., and was soon afterward attacked, near Greensburg, by Lagrange's brigade, and worsted; losing one of his guns and some prisoners; hurrying thence, sharply pursued, by Elizabethtown and Glasgow to Burkesville, where he recrossed the Cumberland, and raced southward by McMinnville and Winchester, Tenn., to Larkinsville, Alabama; thence moving east and attacking Jan. 10, 1865. a petty post at Scottsboroa, where he was repulsed and his command scattered: getting over the Tennessee with a remnant of 200 men, but losing his last gun. Being still pursued, h
ter burning 125,000 bales of cotton. The city promptly surrendered. Several steamboats, with great quantities of army supplies, were here destroyed. Wilson moved April 14. eastward from Montgomery toward Columbus and West Point, Georgia: Lagrange's brigade soon striking a Rebel force under Buford and Clanton, routing it, and taking 150 prisoners. Reaching April 16, 2 P. M. the Chattahoochee, near Columbus, Ga., the lower bridge was found in flames. Accident preventing the arrival of Rebels killed was C. A. L. Lamar, of Howell Cobb's staff, former owner and captain of the slaver Wanderer. We destroyed here the Rebel ram Jackson, mounting six 7-inch guns, burned 15 locomotives, 250 cars, 115,000 bales of cotton, &c., &c. Lagrange's advance reached West Point at 10 A. M. this day, and found the crossing of the Chattahoochee defended by Fort Tyler, a strong, bastioned earthwork, 35 yards square, situated on a commanding hill, and mounting 4 guns. At 1 1/2 P.

on, Colonel McDowell being placed in command of the brigade. The battle of Shiloh occurred soon after, in which the regiment was commanded by Captain John Williams, its casualties in that battle amounting to 52 killed, 94 wounded, and 37 missing; a total of 183, out of less than 650 engaged. The Sixth continued in Sherman's Division during the Siege of Corinth, after which McDowell's Brigade moved to Memphis, remaining there several months. The regiment passed the winter of 1862-3 at LaGrange, Tenn. Under command of Colonel Corse, the regiment distinguished itself on the skirmish line at Jackson, Miss., July 16, 1863, its gallantry there eliciting a special complimentary order from General William S. Smith, the division commander. At Missionary Ridge, the regiment was in Ewing's Division, Fifteenth Corps; its loss there was 8 killed and 57 wounded. Colonel Corse received a serious wound in that battle, and soon after was promoted General for his gallant services. He afterwards m

olly Springs to keep them out. I heard nothing from General Hamilton till the 5th of July, when I received a letter from him dated Rienzi, saying that he had been within nineteen miles of Holly Springs and had turned back for Corinth; and on the next day, July 6th, I got a telegraph order from General Halleck, of July 2d, sent me by courier from Moscow, not to attempt to hold Holly Springs, but to fall back and protect the railroad. We accordingly marched back twenty-five miles--Hurlbut to Lagrange, and I to Moscow. The enemy had no infantry nearer than the Tallahatchee bridge, but their cavalry was saucy and active, superior to ours, and I despaired of ever protecting a railroad, presenting a broad front of one hundred miles, from their dashes. About this tile, we were taunted by the Confederate soldiers and citizens with the assertion that Lee had defeated McClellan at Richmond; that he would soon be in Washington; and that our turn would come next. The extreme caution of Gener

land.--Seventy-second Ohio, Lieutenant-Colonel D. W. C. Loudon; Thirty-second Wisconsin, Colonel J. W. Howe; Ninety-third Indiana, Colonel Thomas; Ninety-third Illinois, Major J. M. Fisher. Subsequently, Brigadier-General J. G. Lauman arrived at Memphis, and I made up a sixth brigade, and organized these six brigades into three divisions, under Brigadier-Generals M. L. Smith, J. W. Denver, and J. G. Lauman. About the 17th of November I received an order from General Grant, dated-- Lagrange, November 15, 1862. Meet me at Columbus, Kentucky, on Thursday next. If you have a good map of the country south of you, take it up with you. U. S. Grant, Major-General. I started forthwith by boat, and met General Grant, who had reached Columbus by the railroad from Jackson, Tennessee. He explained to me that he proposed to move against Pemberton, then intrenched on a line behind the Tallahatchie River below Holly Springs; that he would move on Holly Springs and Abberville, from
