mules taken from citizens. After elaborate preparation, Streight moved out from Moulton, Ala., on the night of the 28th of April. The next day he marched to Day's gap, 35 miles, and found himself in the midst of devoted Union people, with no foe to molest him. But very soon an unexpected enemy attacked his rear guard and the boom of artillery was heard. I soon learned, he said, that the enemy had moved through the gaps on my right and left. Forrest was upon him. At Driver's gap, of Sand mountain, he fought the Federals day and night, with two regiments, with a loss of 5 killed and 50 wounded. Streight left on the field 50 killed and 150 wounded, burned his wagons, and turned loose 250 mules and 150 negroes. On the 3d of May, between Gadsden and Rome, after five days and nights of fighting and marching, General Forrest captured Streight's entire command with arms and horses. The Federal commander handled his command with skill and judgment, and fought it bravely. Forrest wa

East Tennessee, instead of General Breckinridge, see General Bragg's letter to me of February 8, 1873. Governor Benjamin G. Humphries, at that time commanding a brigade (Barksdale's) in General Longstreet's corps, once told me in the presence of General Stephen D. Lee, at the residence of Mr. James T. Harrison, that he concurred with General Bragg in attributing the capture of Lookout Mountain by Hooker to the disobedience of orders by Longstreet. General Bragg had ordered him to occupy Sand Mountain, I think it was, with a division and hold it at all hazards. Instead of placing a division there, which would have held it against the possible assaults of any force, he only sent one brigade (McLaws's or Jenkins's, South Carolina), and consequently not only was that position carried by Hooker, but it opened the way for him to join Grant in Chattanooga. began to put a new phase on the issue involved.

th while to compel him, and proceeded on his way. On the 14th he passed through Snake Creek Gap to Villenow, where he joined the two other corps. The latter under Stewart and Cheatham, had been sent to Tilton and Dalton to capture those places, and tear up the railroad as far as Tunnel Hill, which they did. The march continued through Chattanooga Valley to Gadsden, Ala., where the wagon trains and artillery rejoined the army. On the 23d the army started for Tennessee, marching across Sand Mountain to Decatur, Ala., and thence to Florence on the south bank of the Tennessee river. The pontoon bridge was soon ready and on the 6th of November Johnston's battalion crossed and rejoined the corps, which had passed over several days before. Cheatham's corps crossed on the 13th and Stewart's a few days later. By the 20th of November all the troops had crossed the Tennessee river, and through rain and snow the advance upon Nashville was renewed. The weather was intensely cold, and t

ordon. He is Major of the Sixth Alabama regiment, and was severely wounded at the battle of Seven Pines. He is now convalescent and is on his way to rejoin his regiment in Virginia. Gus is a noble fellow, and I love him as tenderly as Jonathan loved David. August 5th.—Walked into Chattanooga this morning with Gus. and spent the day with him. He left this evening for Columbus, Georgia, en route for Virginia. The dear fellow was thoughtful enough to bring me a bag of vegetables from Sand Mountain. August 6th.—On guard to-day; fortunately at a farmer's house guarding his peach trees. Nothing to do but to sit in my chair, otium cum dignitate, eat as much fruit as my appetite calls for, and see that nobody else touches a peach. The old man is a curiosity. He has been living here nine years and has never seen the town of Chattanooga. His house is at the foot of Lookout Mountain, and he has never been on the top of the mountain.

quarter, and to that extent add to the perplexity of his situation at Chattanooga. Turning towards Bridgeport, it is reported that our pickets are four miles this side of Trenton, in Dade county, Gd., and that the enemy's pickets occupy Sand Mountain, the foot of which on this side is represented to be thirteen miles from Bridgeport. It is by this route, it is believed, that the enemy would advance by the rear upon Lookout Mountain, the possession of which is an object of the greatest inailroad, would solve the question of supplies for the Federal army, and render it an easy matter to maintain itself in Chattanooga this winter. It is proper to add that a scout just in informs me that the pickets of the enemy do not hold Sand Mountain, though he admits that a detachment of their cavalry dashed into Trenton a few days ago, stole some horses, and then disappeared. The batteries of the enemy kept up a slow fire throughout the day yesterday. It was directed against the n
--sent out from Meade's army under Hooker are at Bridgeport. They number about 12,000 men. One corps is commanded by Slocum, the other by Williams. The river at Bridgeport is divided by an island of considerable length. Two pontoon bridges have been thrown across from the north bank to the island, and at last accounts preparations were being made to lay a third bridge from the island to the south bank. This latter work has probably been completed by this time. Hooker's pickets cover Sand Mountain to the distance of eight or ten miles this side of Bridgeport. Sherman, with other reinforcements, supposed to be 15,000 in number, is advancing along the Memphis and Charleston railroad from the west, rebuilding the bridges and repairing the track as he comes. At the last advices he was at Tuscumbia. Johnson's cavalry is in his front, tearing up the road, burning the stringers and cross-ties, heating and bending the iron rails, and destroying the bridges. At this rate it is not
nce to which from the west is by Stephens's and Cooper's Gaps in Lookout Mountain, and from the east by Dug Gap in Pigeon Mountain. North of Chattanooga and beyond the Tennessee are Walden's Ridge and the Cumberland Mountains proper stretching away to the northeast. The distance from Chattanooga to Trenton is twenty miles; to Bridgeport, twenty-eight; to Caperton's Ferry, on the Tennessee, opposite Stevenson, about forty. From Caperton's ferry there is a public road leading across Sand Mountain to Trenton, in Willa's Valley, and thence through Stephens's and Cooper's Gaps in Lookout Mountain to Lafayette and Dalton, passing through McLemore's Cove and across Pigeon Mountain at Dug Gap. Rome is about sixty-five miles southwest of Chattanooga, and is reached by a good wagon road, which passes through Lafayette, about twenty-three miles distant, and is known as the Lafayette road. This road crosses the Chickamauga, which lies east of Missionary Ridge, at Lee & Gordon's Mills, t
rsons have entertained the idea that the two corps of the enemy that lately took up its march from Bridgeport towards Nashville were going to Stevenson, and from thence they would cross the Tennessee and come down to Lebanon, Alabama, which is only fifty miles E. N. E. from Rome, and thus flank us and turn our rear. But this is not at all probable at this season, and the present condition of the roads, which, over this route, would be next to impossible, as they would have to cross both Sand Mountain and Taylor's Ridge. Besides, if such a move was on foot, and were practicable, the enemy would not send a column of only two corps. Then again, if they should send their whole army in that direction, our forces at Rome are amply able to keep them back until our main army could come up, and we could afford to give them two days the start of us for that purpose. But no such apprehensions need be entertained. The natural solution of the enemy's move is, that finding it impossible to
From General Hood's army. A letter from Tuscumbia, Alabama, dated the 31st ultimo, shows how General Hood arranged for crossing the Tennessee river, and how the feint on Decatur was managed. It says: "We have at last struck the Tennessee river, and if present indications do not fail, will cross the river in a day or two at Florence, three miles from this place. "The army moved from Gadsden, to which place it came after the Dalton trip on the 22d instant, and crossing Sand mountain, reached Decatur on the night of the 26th instant. Our skirmish lines were drawn around this place, and the works invested by them only. Stewart's and Cheatham's corps occupied the different roads leading from the town and went into bivouac. Decatur was supposed to be garrisoned by two thousand five hundred or three thousand troops, in very strong works, of which I had good ocular proof, visiting the skirmish lines quite frequently. "It was not General Hood's intention to invest the
