e garrison had looked for assistance from General Forrest, then between Mobile and Montgomery, but a courier, whose dispatches informed him that Forrest was now on his front in heavy force; that oneavor to fight Jackson and prevent his joining Forrest, Wilson ordered McCook to move rapidly, with north of Plantersville, he was confronted by Forrest who had five thousand men behind a strong barricade and abatis. Forrest was straining every nerve to reach and defend Selma, which was one of thhe two officers dined at his house; and after Forrest had eaten his food and drunk his wine, he plun the 2d of April, outnumbered by Jackson, of Forrest's command.

he center, and took command of their united forces, when a chargee was made by Forrest's cavalry on our infantry supporting a battery of six pieces, which was taken. As all would naturally wish to go, it is probable that all went who could. Col. Forrest, with some 800 cavalry, escaped by the road up the immediate bank of the riv partly overflowed, and therefore deemed impracticable for infantry, but which Forrest's troopers appear to have traversed without difficulty or loss. During the ough the acts of the cowardly and ravenous mob of Nashville. Gen. Floyd and Col. Forrest exhibited extraordinary energy and efficiency in getting off Government stores. Col. Forrest remained in the city about 24 hours, with only 40 men, after the arrival of the enemy at Edgefield. the positive Union gain was inconsiderable. Corinth ; and Gen. Breckinridge, strengthened by three regiments of cavalry — Forrest's, Adams's, and the Texas Rangers, raising his effective force to 12,000 men —
uent throughout Kentucky and Tennessee--the Confederate leaders, especially those of cavalry regiments, on finding that they were not needed in our front, transferring their assiduous and vehement attentions to our flanks and rear. The names of Forrest and John Morgan began to be decidedly notorious. Horse-stealing — in fact, stealing in general — in the name and behalf of Liberty and Patriotism, is apt to increase in popularity so long as it is practiced with impunity; and the horses of Kentlutching whatever property could be made useful in war, had been for some time current; when at length a bolder blow was struck in the capture July 5, 1862. of Lebanon, Ky. [not Tenn.], and almost simultaneously of Murfreesboroa, Tenn., which Forrest surprised; making prisoners of Brig.-Gens. Duffield and Crittenden, of Ind., with the 9th Michigan, 3d Minnesota, 4 companies of the 4th Ky. cavalry, and 3 companies of the 7th Pa. cavalry, after a spirited but brief resistance.

Forrest, who, with 3,500 cavalry, had been detached Crossinot attempting to make a stand, nor hardly to fire a shot. Forrest himself narrowly escaped capture; losing 4 guns, over 400 perate on Rosecrans's commnunications, simultaneously with Forrest's doings in West Tennessee, passing the left of Rosecrans'r, in chief command of Bragg's cavalry, 4,500 strong, with Forrest and Wharton as Brigadiers, passing Rosecrans's army by itshaving two or three skirmishes with inferior forces, under Forrest and Van Dorn, who fled, losing in all about 100, mainly pragazineo. He was hardly well on his road, however, before Forrest and Roddy, with a superior force of Rebel cavalry, were af
fety; but the Tigress received a shot below her water-line which disabled her, so that she drifted helplessly down and sank near the Louisiana bank, some distance below. Of the barges, three, with five of the transports, were soon made ready for further usefulness. The effective Rebel force in the States bordering on the Mississippi being now mainly engaged in the defense of Vicksburg and the Yazoo valley, Grant had determined to retaliate one of the destructive cavalry raids of Morgan, Forrest, and Van Dorn. To this end, Col. B. H. Grierson, with a cavalry brigade, 1,700 strong, composed of the 6th and 7th Illinois and 2d Iowa, starting April 17. Lagrange, Tennessee, swept rapidly southward, through Ripley, New Albany, Pontotoc, Clear Spring, Starkville, Louisville, Decatur, and Newton, Miss.--thus passing behind all the Rebel forces confronting and resisting Grant — until, having passed Jackson, he turned sharply to the right, and made his way W. S.W. through Raleigh, Westvi

But, at length — Morgan having departed on his great raid into the Free States, and Rosecrans havp and took post on Baird's right. By 10 A. M., Croxton's brigade of Brannan's division had become engaged, driving back Forrest's cavalry; when Ector's and Wilson's infantry brigades were sent in by Walker to Forrest's support. Croxton, of course,Forrest's support. Croxton, of course, was brought to a dead halt; but now Thomas sent up Baird's division, and the Rebel brigades were hurled back, badly cut up. Hereupon, Walker in turn sent up Liddell's division, making the odds against us two to one; when Baird was in turn driven: tility to improve it by routing what remained of our army and chasing it into and through Chattanooga.
