is made up of three Mississippi regiments seven Tennessee, and 12 of Kentucky, with Kentuckians rallying to their standard by whole regiments. Shortly after their advance to Bowling Green, Gen. Buckner found it necessary to send dispatches to Owensboro', on the Ohio river. The route lay through a hot Union district, and which was held by Federal troops from Evansville, Indiana. Mr. Burnam volunteered to carry the dispatches. He started on the 19th of September; on the 20th he was captuartial, sentenced Mr. Burnam to death, to be shot next morning. During the night the enemy were joined by another Federal regiment, under Col. Hawkins, who reported that 5,000 Confederates were on their trail. Both regiments then retreated to Owensboro', where Mr. Burnam was fortunate enough to have an interview with the persons to whom the dispatches were addressed, and the objects of his journey were accomplished, the locks on Green river were blown up the next night and navigation stopped.
