rned that the tremendous forces of Grant and Buell, combined under command of Halleck, were slowly advancing. It was reported that they swarmed over the country like locusts, eating or destroying every thing, carrying off property, capturing negroes, and impressing them into service. As a specimen of the behavior of Federal troops in the West and South, I subjoin the following from their own organs: The Louisville (Kentucky) Democrat, which for safety was printed over the Ohio River at New-Albany, thus speaks of their soldiery in Athens, Alabama: General Turchin said to his soldiers that he would shut his eyes for two hours, and let them loose upon the town and citizens of Athens — the very same citizens who, when all the rest of the State was disloyal, nailed the national colors to the highest pinnacle of their court-house cupola. These citizens, to a wonderful degree true to their allegiance, had their houses and stores broken open, and robbed of every thing valuable; and, what

Captain: I have the honor to make the following report of the operations of the Third Brigade, First Division, Fourteenth Army Corps, during the advance of the army from Ringgold on Atlanta: We marched from Ringgold on the morning of May 7 and deployed line at Tunnel Hill.

Scribner, Colonel Thirty-eighth Indiana, Commanding Brigade. Captain Edmonds. New Albany, August 7, 1864. Lieutenant: I have the honor to report the operations of my command from June 14 to July 6, inclusive. On the morning of the 14th we advanced in line of battle toward the Marietta road, the objective point being Pine Mou
n under the command of Lieutenant Gibson of the United States gunboat Yankee, and brought out of the creek without molestation, although a force of rebel cavalry was stationed only three quarters of a mile distant.--Official Report. A reconnoitring expedition, consisting of the United States gunboats Paul Jones, Unadilla, Huron and Madgie, left Savannah bay and proceeded up the Ogeechee River, Ga., until they arrived near Fort James, the strength of which they discovered by bombarding it for about two hours, when they returned to their former anchorage.--A number of young ladies of New Albany, Indiana, proposed to act as clerks and salesmen for the young men of that place who would enlist, and give them half their salaries while they are absent, and surrender their positions to them on their return. Richmond, Ky., was visited by a band of guerrillas, under John Morgan, who plundered the stores, houses, and stables of the Union men of the place.--Richmond Messenger, August 1.

They did little damage except to plunder the stores, and help themselves to whatever portable property struck their fancy. Horses suffered particularly, they being a self-moving article of plunder. Medicines, wearing apparel, and boots and shoes were also much in demand. After a stay of a few hours in urned to them. The captured arms were loaded upon the Izetta, and will arrive here to-night. The prisoners are now here, but will be sent to Louisville. They say that if their plans had succeeded, they would have broken the railway between New-Albany and Mitchell. There is some dispute as to whether they will be held as regular prisoners of war or as guerrillas. They claim to belong to the Second Kentucky cavalry, and properly attached to the rebel army. The matter will be decided at L

Ninth.--Marched on to Corydon, fighting near there four thousand five hundred State militia, and capturing three thousand four hundred of them, and dispersing the remainder; then moving without a halt through Salisbury and Palmyra to Salem, at which point, telegraphing with our operator, we first learned the station and numbers of the enemy aroused for the hunt — discovered that Indianapolis was running over with them — that New-Albany contained ten thousand-that three thousand had just arrived at Mitchell — and, in fact, twenty-five thousand men were armed, and ready to meet the bloody invader. Remaining at Salem only long enough to destroy the railroad bridge and track, we sent a scout to the Ohio and Mississippi road, near Seymour, to burn two bridges, a depot, and destroy the track for two miles, which was effected in an incredibly short time. Then taking the road to Lexington, after riding all night, reached that <
ing the Tallahatchie River on the afternoon of the eighteenth at three different points. One battalion of the Seventh Illinois, under Major Graham, crossing at New-Albany, found the bridge partially torn up, and an attempt was made to fire it. As they approached the bridge they were fired upon, but drove the enemy from their positward to communicate with Colonel Hatch, and make a demonstration toward Chesterville, where a regiment of cavalry was organizing. I also sent an expedition to New-Albany, and another north-west toward King's Bridge, to attack and destroy a portion of a regiment of cavalry organizing there, under Major Chalmers. I thus sought toct of our advance was to break up these parties. The expedition eastward communicated with Colonel Hatch, who was still moving south parallel to us. The one to New-Albany came upon two hundred rebels near the town and engaged them, killing and wounding several. The one north-west found that Major Chalmers's command, hearing of o

At Cincinnati I selected two side-wheel boats, of which the largest is 180 feet long, 37 1/2 feet beam in the widest part, and 8 feet hold. At New Albany I secured a boat of about the same length but rather less beam, and subsequently I selected another at Cincinnati, of about the same class as the last, and sent her to Madison to be fitted out. The work was distributed among these four citie

In February, 1862, it marched with Buell's Army in its advance on Bowling Green and Nashville. The summer of 1862 was spent in Tennessee, in the vicinity of Shelbyville, and also near Chattanooga, returning to Kentucky in October, where the campaign culminated on the 8th, in the battle of Chaplin Hills. The regiment was then in Rousseau's Division, which
And the flowers of love and immortal youth, And the tender heart-tokens of all true ruth-- And the everlasting victory! And the breath and bliss of liberty, And the loving kiss of liberty; And the welcoming light of heavenly eyes, And the over-calm of God's canopy; And the infinite love-span of the skies That cover the valleys of paradise-- For all of the brave who rest with thee; And for one and all who died with thee, And now sleep side by side with thee; And for every one who lives and dies On the solid land or the heaving sea, Dear warrior-boy — like thee! Oh! the victory — the victory Belongs to thee! God ever keeps the brightest crown for such as thou-- He gives it now to thee! O young and brave, and early and thrice blest-- Thrice, thrice, thrice blest! The country turns once more to kiss thy youthful brow, And takes thee — gently — gently to her breast; And whispers lovingly: “God bless thee — bless thee now-- My darling, thou shalt rest!” New-Albany, Februa

On the seventeenth we formed a junction at New-Albany, on the Tallahatchie River, with the Second brigade, commanded byas often repulsed. Just at night, we crossed the Tallahatchie at New-Albany, destroying the bridge behind us, and we were safe. From here wery, the last of the command had crossed the Tallahatchie River at New-Albany, without interruption. The attention of the enemy, who was in sms. Hepburn's brigade was placed in the rear and the march toward New-Albany continued, skirmishing going on with a body of the enemy who continued the pursuit. On arriving at New-Albany, General Grierson ordered Waring's brigade to hold the enemy in check and cover the crossing of these points, when General Smith swung his cavalry around and to New-Albany, whence he crossed without firing a shot. He then pushed boldly
