of Hamburg, to the south, runs along the left bank of Lick Creek; that of Crump's Landing, to the north, crosses the swamps below the confluence of Owl Creek and Snake Creek. In the centre a third road leads towards the north-west to the town of Purdy, and two others in a south-westerly direction to Corinth. The two streams of Owl Creek and Lick Creek, separated at their mouths by a space of little more than four kilometres, formed an excellent protection for the flanks of the Federal army.e not disposed so as to enable them to support each other mutually, and there were intervals between them through which the enemy might penetrate. Sherman formed the right with three of his brigades; he occupied one of the Corinth roads, that of Purdy, and a prominent point adjoining the first of these roads, where stands the plain wooden chapel known by the name of Shiloh. This little church—or, to use the expression more generally applied by the sect to which it belonged, this meetinghouse—

the military district of Tennessee, he was, in reality, reduced by the jealousy of his chief to the position of bureau clerk, making summaries of reports and signing leaves of absence for sick soldiers. On the 1st of May, three weeks after the battle of Shiloh, Halleck started at last with this large army to go in quest of Beauregard at Corinth. The day before, Wallace's division, which had been despatched in a north-westerly direction, had cut the line of the Mobile and Ohio Railway at Purdy. It had thus isolated Corinth from the peninsula comprised between the Tennessee and the Mississippi, in which the Confederates, although no regular troops were stationed there, kept up numerous relations, and whence they could derive considerable resources. On the 1st of May the town of Monterey was occupied by the Federals, and Beauregard, having been apprised of the fact, was preparing to receive them. This time he waited for them inside his works, and did not even make any serious e

m, on their left, as the traveller enters Corinth, one coming from Chewalla and Pocahontas, villages situated at the north-west on the Memphis road, the other from Purdy and Jackson, situated on the north. Before reaching Corinth, both wagon-roads and railroads cross Bridge Creek, which, as we have said elsewhere, runs to the nort the Memphis Railway; the division of Davies deployed on his right, between this railway and that of Jackson; farther to the right, Hamilton's division guarded the Purdy road; these three divisions were drawn up in two curved lines, the convexity of which was turned toward the enemy. Stanley's troops were held in reserve. These dt that the Federal general became aware that the Confederate outposts, by following roads unknown to him, had avoided this dangerous pass, and that, masters of the Purdy road and the line of railway, they were already threatening to flank his right. The troops commanded by Van Dorn were composed of the two divisions of Maury and
connection with the events of Sunday last, possesses considerable interest: Meantime the enemy is concentrating. The Union forces are in the lower tier of counties in Western Tennessee. Immediately below is Tishomingo county, in the northeast corner of Mississippi, and in it, just twenty-five miles from Savannah, is the important railroad point of Corinth, or Corinth as the natives insist on pronouncing it, at the junction of the railroad from Columbus through Humboldt, Jackson, and Purdy, with the great Memphis and Charleston road. This seems to be the cause of the Rebel operations. Their new line of defence has for its base the Charleston and Memphis road, the preservation of which is absolutely necessary to any pretence of resistance through Northern Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Along this railroad are and Florence, at the foot of the Muscle Shoals and the junction with the Nashville and Florence road where the Rebels have had forces since Donelson; Decatur,

The 3d brigade will camp on the left of the Corinth road, its right near the Shiloh chapel. IV. The 4th brigade will encamp on the right centre, its left reaching to Shiloh chapel. V. Cavalry and artillery need not be in line, but will be stationed as the nature of the ground may admit. VI. Each brigade must encamp looking west so that when the regiments are on their regimental parade, the brigades will be in line of battle. The interval between the regiments not to exceed twenty-two (22) paces. Convenience of water may be considered, but must not control
t Savannah, Tenn., has been found forty miles below, on the banks of the river. The weather is clear and pleasant, and there is a good prospect of the improvement of the roads. The river is falling. Gen. T. W. Sherman, late of Port Royal, has arrived here and taken command of a brigade. Pittsburg, Tenn., April 30--11 A. M. To Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War: Movements continue. Roads bad, and require a great deal of work for heavy trains. The reconnaissance to Purdy was successful. We destroyed the bridges on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, and captured one locomotive and the train men. Thos. H. Scott, Assistant Secretary of War. The War in Alabama.

ddress to about five thousand, on the subject of the infamous order, and the feeling he aroused was intense. Officers and men were present from all portions of the army, and several ladies, who are acting as good Samaritans, also graced the scene. While speaking, volleys of musketry could be distinctly heard, only a mile and a half away, and the occasion was in all respects highly impressive. The enemy are massing troops principally on our right and centre, that is, on the Farmington, Purdy, and Monterey roads. Pope command the Federal left, or what is known as the Army of the Mississippi, while Bueli and McClernand are in the centre. The division of Gen. Wallace constitutes the reserve, and is at Monterey. As they advance, telegraph lines are made to connect the different departments, and thus they are enabled to communicate at once with each other. Their correspondents, however, state what I indicated in a previous letter — namely, that the divisions are miles apart, a
From the Southwest. Mobile. Nov. 18. --A special to the Advertiser and Register, dated Okolona, Miss., Nov. 17th, says a scout has just arrived in Saltillo from between Purdy and Corinth, who reports that he saw six hundred wagons passing from Corinth to Jackson, Tenn., loaded with stores. Five regiments of infantry and two of cavalry were guarding the train and driving beeves. The enemy have small forces at Bethel. Glendale, and Corinth. They told the citizens, as they were passing from that place to Jackson, that they were going to fallback to Jackson and Memphis. Fifteen to twenty armed slaves left from a point seven miles north of here this morning, making their way to the Abolitionists at Corinth. A body of cavalry have started in pursuit.
