it will stand to tell to distant ages the genius of Sydney Johnston. The left wing rests on Russellville. Here Floyd and Buckner are posted with a certain number of men, and are anxious to measure ng to see the antics which this "bright son of an aged parent" cut before our troops came to Russellville, Tom had audaciously crossed Green river and stationed some of his motley followers at South Carrolton, about 40 miles from Russellville, From all accounts not a pig, nor an egg, nor a bit of poultry, was safe in the neighborhood of these protectors. They slew, killed, and ate with a relish his ragged regiments in double-quick across Green river. Whether our Generals will winter at Russellville, depends on the movements of the enemy. I can see no chance for a fight now. Indeed, upon a dom, will indulge in a great deal of palaver before trying another battle. A letter from Russellville would be incomplete without some special mention of Gen. Buckner. The position he has held f

h the capital of the State. It is also reported that 10,000 men left Bowling Green two or three weeks since to reinforce this point; and further, that Gen. Hardee was in command of the post. The railroad from Louisville via Bowling Green and Russellville, passes through the village, and it crosses the Cumberland at this point by a valuable bridge. What troops may reformaly have been at there two last named places have doubtless, are this, been sent forward to Clarksville. As Bowling Green is miles south of Bowling Green, along the railroad track, is a small station known by the name of Woodburn. At this point the brigades of Breckinridge and Hind, man was located on Thursday last, but have office been reported as having gone to Russellville. They have doubtless before this marched to Nashville. It is believed, however, that no rebel forces exist in Kentucky east of the direct road from Bowling Green via Franklin to Nashville.

The officers are not uniformed, and don't look much superior to the private prisoners. The prisoners are composed of the 4th and 18th Mississippi, 8th Kentucky, 4th Alabama, 25th, 45th, and 53d Tennessee. First telegram from the Eastern shore of Virginia. Eastville, Feb. 22. --The natal day of the father of his Country has been celebrated here by a military display, processions, &c., in which many citizens participated. The indications are that Secession in Northampton county is disappearing. [signed,] The Union Relief Com., Of Eastern Shere Virginia. A Federal report. Louisville, Feb. 22. --Cumberland Gap and Russellville, Ky., (the latter the headquarters of the so-called "Provisional Government" rebels,) are in possession of the Federal forces.
the number. All of our field officers were absent sick, and the senior Captain present commanded the regiment. It would be impossible to single out any instances of particular distinction, when all officers and men conducted themselves with such determined coolness and unflinching bravery. General Floyd, after the battle, highly complimented the Fifty-sixth Virginia. Prior to being sent to Donelson, we were stationed under the command of General Floyd at Bowling Green and Russellville, Kentucky. Our loss in killed and wounded was small compared to the enemy's — theirs, no doubt, four times as great as ours. Floyd's brigade is now ordered to this place, and will be here in a day or two. Our sick are sent to Atlanta and Rome, Ga. The principal fighting at Donelson was done by Virginians, Mississippians, Texans, and Kentuckians. The troops from each State won unfading laurels in that contest. The men from all the South place implicit confidence in the coolness an

The two rebel deserters are named Frank Osgood and Michael Conner, and were taken from Richmond and forced to serve. Osgood was born in Massachusetts, although he claim to be a New Yorker, from his long residence there. When he left New York he resided on Bleaker street, near Broadway. The Guerrilla war at the west. Dispatches from Louisville, July 29th, say Russellville, Ky., was taken by Confederate guerrillas on that day, under Col. Guano, two Federal lieutenants being killed in the action. It was occupied two hours after by a large Federal force. Governor Magoffin has called the Legislature together to consider Lincoln's emancipation proclamation.--The Mt. Sterling (Ky.) Express has been suppressed for favoring rebellion. A party of guerrillas in Boone county, Ky., were defeated on the 28th, with a loss of 8 killed and 48 prisoners. The rebel Me
came within ten miles of the city yesterday, and destroyed large quantities of cotton and the bridges over Wolf and Hatchie rivers. Five new companies were recently raised in West Tennessee. It is much feared that a band of guerrillas are depredating in the vicinity of Mound City, in Adair county, Mo. "Col. McCullough, of Porter's guerrillas, was sentenced to death as a traitor and shot. Also, fifteen guerrillas, accused of breaking their parole." Gov. Gamble, in a speech at St. Louis, declared that guerrillas are robbers and murderers, and he would treat them as such. The Yankee account of Morgan's fight says that 800 were attacked by 1,700, under Morgan, and defeated with a loss of 300, including Johnson.--The remaining 500 escaped. No telegraphic communication is had South of Russellville, Ky. One hundred and forty Mississippians left Camp Merton, Indiana, on the 23d, for Vicksburg. Eight hundred Kentuckians and Tennesseeans have also been released.
[Southern Association Dispatches.]important from the West a battle expected near Murfreesboro'--our troops confident of Success — Morgan at Russellville, Ky. Murfreesboro', Dec. 29. --There has been no general engagement to-day, although there has been heavy skirmishing in front of our entire line. Wheeler's and Wharton's cavalry were warmly engaged all day. The two lines are now in sight of each other, and the enemy are advancing in splendid line of battle. The fight emy are advancing in splendid line of battle. The fight will certainly begin to-morrow. The Federal are in greater force than was at first intimated. They are now within three miles of Murfreesboro, and it is thought they will demand the surrender of the place to-morrow morning. Our army is confidently awaiting their approach. Twenty five prisoners belonging to the 4th Ohio cavalry were brought in this evening. It is rumored that Gen. John Morgan is now at Russellville, Ky.
shville and Salem road, appeared. Heavy and rapid musketry firing then commenced, and still continues. 12 o'clock M.--The heavy guns are also heard, but as yet we have nothing from the battle-field, which is only two miles distant. The citizens are all confident of victory. There is no excitement perceptible. Nothing further has been heard from Morgan, though it is certain that he has destroyed railroad communication between Nashville and Louisville, and routed the enemy at Russellville, Ky. [second Dispatch.] Murfreesboro', Dec. 30. --The day has passed without any general engagement. About nine o'clock a heavy and brisk artillery duel was fought occasionally interrupted with sharp shooting. The firing gradually closed on both sides about 5 P. M. The casualties amount to almost nothing. It is evidently the desire of the enemy to force us to attack him; but failing in this desire, and having placed his forces in position, the battle will open at daylight
of this once honored but now unlamented Kentuckian: The death of Mr. Crittenden, announced a few days since by telegraph, seems to have elicited very little notice from the press. He died, it appears, at the advanced age of seventy seven. He was a native of Woodford county, Kentucky, or what is now known as such, but then Virginia, his birth being prior to the formation of Kentucky as a State. He was graduated at William and Mary College. He settled as a lawyer in 1810 at Russellville, in Kentucky. He was elected to the Senate of the United States, and took his seat in 1817,--A few years afterward he removed to Frankfort. I think under the appointment as Attorney-General of the State. He did not appear upon the theatre of general policies, after his removal to Frankfort, for many years, being given up mainly to his profession, having been elected in the meantime frequently to the popular branch of the State Legislature, and frequently chosen its Speaker. In 1834 he was c

essed to their mother in Kentucky, to be mailed at Nashville. This letter advised the mother that its writer would be at Lexington, Ky., upon a certain day, and desired her to meet him there. This letter contained the following note from the devoted Chariton Morgan to his lady love, as it would seem: "McMinnville, Feb. 14, 1863. Dear Mollie --Meet me at Lexington. I will be there in four or five days." Directed to "Miss Mollie Williams, care of Mrs. Mary Atkinson, Russellville, Ky." Of course this letter came to the hands of the inevitable Col. Truesdale, and he forthwith advises Gen. Boyle, commandant at Louisville. The latter sends a force and arrests Capt. Morgan, and he was sent to Camp Chase as a prisoner of war or a spy — we are not positive which. Returning on his third trip to Morgan's headquarters at McMinnville, "our man" found himself in trouble at once, and under arrest as a traitor to the South. Gen. John Morgan had received the day befor
