numbering about three thousand, with artillery, made an attack on our picket-line on the south, between the Franklin and Lebanon pikes. The picket-line on the Murfreesboro road gradually withdrew, with the purpose of bringing the enemy under the guns of Fort Negley, two of which were opened upon the enemy, and speedily drove him n the south taking a position beyond our picket-lines, Col.

At the same time, two guns, which were not visible, opened upon us from the Franklin pike. The guns upon the Murfreesboro road, after the first two shots, directed their fire toward General Palmer's camp, occasionally kicking up quite a dust within musket-shot of the General's Hea
rave commander. After spending twelve days near Dechard, Tennessee, at the great springs, we left that place, August twentieth, for Pelham, twelve miles east. Here we bivouacked upon a dreary, rocky bluff-side for six days, challenging in every honorable way the rebel Bragg to fight us, who was, with a powerful army exceeding ours in number, passing north within a few miles east of us. But all to no purpose. He would not accept the challenge. September fourth and fifth found us at Murfreesboro, where our train, after a hazardous trip from Dechard, rejoined us, and we were again in tents, after having been without them for ten days. From September seventh to the fourteenth, we were in Nashville, engaged in guarding the city, and in fatigue duties upon the extensive fortifications then being erected. On Sabbath afternoon, September fourteenth, by the approbation of Gen. Stedman, I secured one of the principal churches in Nashville, for the special use of our brigade, where

long in the service, and do not make any pretensions as a military man, and never did; but since being in the Army I have tried to do my duty, and I have never disobeyed an order. I have been told by some of the Federal soldiers captured at Murfreesboro, that it was reported that a negro had came to my lines and notified me that the rebels were corning to attack me that night. That is also untrue. Nothing of the kind was communicated to me in any way whatever. If it was told to any of my p reenforcements would reach me, and that he intended to take me without a fight. I desire to try the rebels again, when I get released, and I want no better men than the One Hundred and Fourth. God bless them all!

nowing whether this came from Forrest or not, but opined that some body was in trouble, ordered out five hundred men to reenforce Trenton, to go by the way of Humboldt. It was not until four P. M. that reliable news arrived of the destruction of the trestle-work near Trenton, on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. Men as scouts were immediately sent out as to the matter, and report. They confirmed the evil tidings upon their return. Early the next morning two contrabands came into camp from Murfreesboro, and reported that the rebels, five thousand to seven thousand strong, commenced the retreat from that place the same day that Sullivan left Jackson, and on the twentieth were ten miles out. They gave the capture of Ingersoll at Lexington correctly; also that other captures had been made in the vicinity of men, horses, and other property. At midnight a despatch was received from Trenton, while in camp, that Forrest was east of that place, at Spring Creek, and advancing. This report came

Major-General Rosecrans, Commanding Department of the Cumberland: sir: In accordance with your request, I herewith transmit a condensed account of the capture and subsequent destruction of a portion of your transportation by fire, on the Cumberland River, on the thirteenth day of January, 1863, at the head of Harpeth Shoals, thirty miles from Nashville, and thirty-five from Clarksville. I was on the steamer Hastings at the time of her being ordered by the guerrillas to land, and at the request of the captain of the Hastings, the officers and men on board, (near two hundred and sixty wounded,) assumed command. I answered their hail and order by saying, that we were loaded with wounded, and could not stop. They again ordered us to come to; and backed their orders by three (3) volleys of musketry, after which I ordered the pilot of the Hastings: Round the st
Doc. 128.-fight at Bradyville, Tenn. Cincinnati Gazette account. Murfreesboro, Tenn., March 4, 1863. the expedition which gained so brilliant an advantage over the enemy near Bradyville, on the first instant, deserves a more extended notice than that which I was able to send you by telegraph. It was well known to orebel cavalry were infesting the country around that town, foraging, plundering, and conscripting. As Bradyville is only a little more than a dozen miles from Murfreesboro, this insolence could not be patiently borne; and accordingly, Generals Stanley and Negley formed a plan for beating up their quarters. General Stanley tookFourth Ohio--Killed, George Saums. Wounded, Capt. Rifenberick, company I, severely; Corporal B. Winans, severely; Jacob Carolus, severely. Some of the routed rebels, attempting to get round to the rear, were captured by our infantry. The troops encamped upon the ground for the night, and returned next day to Murfreesboro.
