1864, I was in my tent conversing with Captain Sterling Hambright, commander of the headquarters escort, when my orderly, Private David Cahill, knocked and told that little Jimmy Leddy wished to speak to me. Knowing the boy since the affair at Blue Springs, near his mother's house, I invited him in, and he told me that Morgan's men were all around his mother's place; that they took his mare, but that he afterwards found her and stole her from the soldiers, and came direct to our camp. I at firser under the house or in the potato hole, on that eventful morning. The negro who gave Colonel Ingerton the information was lost sight of in the tumult, and never again appeared at headquarters. Jimmy Leddy was the son of a widow living at Blue Springs, was taken by General Gillem to Nashville, and there placed at school, but he soon tired of that and returned to his home. Captain Rogers, of Morgan's staff, was my guest for over a week after his capture, and he afterwards spoke in the hig

General W. E. Jones and Colonel Giltner, successor to Williams, are designated to wreak this vengeance. Their two brigades together make up about two thousan

On the 10th instant the enemy was dislodged from a strong position at Blue Springs, and, fleeing precipitately, were pursued by cavalry under General Shackelford, who drove them entirely from the State. At Zollicoffer General Shackelford captured a fort, burned a long railroad bridge, and destroyed three locomotives and thirty-five cars. Our loss at Blue Springs and in the pursuit was about one hundred killed and wounded. From Charleston, on the 17th, it is reported that the new Yankee battery on James Island (?) is now forty feet high.
