From Gen. Longstreet's command. --A correspondent of the Savannah Republican, writing from Strawberry Plains, East Tennessee, February 22d, furnishes the following items of interest: To-day a General Order from Division Headquarters, announced to the soldiers of Gen. Hood's old division that Gen command. The orders was issued by Gen. who expressed himself highly honored in being appointed to lead these time-honored veterans, and as he placed implicit confidence in them he hoped they would give the same to him. Great satisfaction is manifested in this turn of our affairs, as no doubt the bickering and ill-feelings of the contest for the Major Generalcy will now cause. Gen. Buckner is a very courteous gentleman, and does not want a name, which gees a long way in obtaining the confidence of the old soldier, who is always suspicious of one of whom he one has heard anything. He has now a fair opportunity of displaying those qualifications which make the great captain,
orthern files we get some intelligence of interest, which want of space has precluded our publishing. The summary below will be found interesting: A List of the Schemes Have Been Defeated The New York Herald, of the 27th ult., in blissful ignorance of the disasters which had befallen the Yankee arms, drew off the following list of the schemes of our "erring brethren" of the North, and the progress they had made: First, the designs lately entertained between Longstreet, in East Tennessee, and Joe Johnston, a hundred and fifty miles to the southwestward, near Dalton, for the expulsion of our army from Chattanooga, in an attack by way of Knoxville, have evidently been circumvented. Longstreet has been compelled to fall back, and is probably moving for a junston with Johnston, against the column of Gen. Grant's forces which has advanced to within three miles of Dalton, although not without some sharp fighting at the mountain pass of Tunnel Hill. Confident that the movemen
reports fully confirm these accounts, but they do not state the exact force by which these results were accomplished. Owing to the exhaustion of his horses, the want of arms and munitions, and other causes, Forrest could array a force of only 2,400 men to confront Smith and Grierson's column of 7,000 of the best equipped cavalry the Yankees have ever put in the field. Forrest's men, too, were mostly new and untried, especially in the cavalry service. He had recently recruited them in West Tennessee. It seemed the extreme of rashness and recklessness, to attempt with such a force to arrest the march of a column of seven thousand splendidly mounted and equipped men, led by experienced officers, whose march thus far had been uninterrupted, who were buoyant and confident, and were charged with such an important mission. The junction of this cavalry force with Sherman at Meridian, was the key of the whole scheme of the Yankee plan for the occupation and subjugation of the Southwest.
