The Daily Dispatch: February 22, 1862., [Electronic resource], Sketches of "captured rebel Generals." (search)
d Overton, counties. After making an extensive circuit through Middle, Tennessee, praying in its course Carthage and the city of Nashville, it turns towards the northwest, and again enters Kentucky about ten miles to the east of the Tennessee river. Between Nashville and this point it passes Clarksville and Dover — the former — the point to which Commodore Foote has gone with his fleet and the latter the scene of the recent battle and capture of Fort Donelson. Its course about entering the State of Kentucky, is nearly parallel with that of the Tennessee river until it enters the Ohio at Smithland. The whole length of the river is estimated at about six hundred miles. During high water large steamboats ascend to Nashville, and small boats about three hundred miles further. About fourteen miles from Williamsburg, in Kentucky, near the Cumberland Mountains, the river has a vertical fall of sixty feet. The area claimed by thin river is estimated at seventeen thousand square miles
scaped from Fort Donelson went to Nashville or Clarksville, where it is supposed the rebels will make another stand. The prisoners from Fort Donelson will probably be sent to Camp Douglas, Chicago. It appears that the General Johnston captured at Fort Donelson is Bushrod Johnson, of Tennessee, a Brigadier General, and not, as first stated, Gen. A. S. Johnston. The time it takes to go from Fort Donelson to Cairo is from 12 to 15 hours. Sometimes the boats drop off the news at Smithland and Paducah, but not always. The War in Missouri. The Federalists have been much exercised relative to the brave and sagacious Price.--They have had his army captured several times. The latest papers before us contain paragraphs contradicting the report that Price's army had been captured! We copy their telegraph about the pursuit of Price south of Springfield. They are yet to hear that he was finally overtaken and what he did when he was overtaken: Springfield,, Me. Feb. 1
s understood to extend at least as far east as Decatur, Alabama, and Westward as far as may be necessary for the defence of Memphis. He is known to have been making his headquarters last week at Corinth — within ten or fifteen miles of our picket lines and during a portion of the week it is also certain that he had around him at the same point Generals Polk Johnston, Pillow, Cheatham, Freeman, and Wright. Our line on the other hand, for the present, is imply the Tennessee river, from Smithland, Kentucky to Eastport, Mississippi.--There have been numerous ineffectual attempts to oppose our free passage along the river, but the two wooden gunboats, the Lexington and A. O. Taylor, have served an admirable purpose as a roving police, preventing the erection of batteries, and silencing the only one that had been completed — that at Pittsburg Landing, nine miles above. Above East port, at Chickasaw Bluffs and some other points, the Rebels are understood to have batteries that command
ed, that more heavy fighting will more than probably have to take place before the enemy in that region may be considered as shaken off. His numbers there were no doubt very great. Grant, according to a Northern letter writer, had about 60,000. If Buell had as many more, the aggregate must have reached about 120,000. These however, may be in excess. Yet Floyd reported that the enemy had Donelson eighty full regiments. These were independent of Buell's line.-- from S. Louis, Cairo, Smithland and Paducah. So that to Slumber then under Grant must have been from sixty to eighty thousand. According to the Memphis Appeal, of the 3d inst., Buell was marching towards Savannah, which is on the right bank of the Tennessee river, not far from the Pittsburg landing, which is in the immediate neighborhood of the battle field at Shiloh. McCook and Nelson were in command of the advance, and it was supposed would reach Savannah on the 4th, just two days before the battle at Shiloh occ
