Two regiments can be organized in East Tennessee, but they will not muster into service for a longer period than twelve months and cannot arm themselves. Tho serve, they would be useful to General Heth. There are three Tennessee regiments in the army of General Joseph E. Johnston whose term of service will expire in May, and their officers state that the men would re-enlist for the war if permitted to return to Tennessee. These regiments cannot now be spared unless their places rtment are at Cumberland Gap, where they are needed. General Mitchel's force in North Alabama is composed of four brigades, and, by a report intercepted early in May, numbered some 9,000 men, with three batteries of eight guns each. This force has been kept constantly occupied by our cavalry operating in Middle Tennessee, on
n at the feet of the enemy; they will thus avoid overshooting, and, besides, wounded men give more trouble to our adversary than his dead, as they have to be taken from the field. II. Officers in command must be cool and collected in action, hold their men in hand, and caution them against useless, aimless firing.

In the beginning of a battle, except by troops deployed as skirmishers the fire by file will be avoided; it excites the men and renders their subsequent control difficult; fire by wing or company should be resorted to instead. During the battle the officers and non-commissioned officers must keep the men in the ranks, enforce obedience, and encourage and stimulate them, if necessary. IV. Soldiers must n

nt. If much of the salt meat on hand is bad, as is alleged — the quantity is alarmingly small-and scurvy exists, these are all potent reasons for saving the meat, diminishing the salt diet, and substituting more bread in the absence of vegetables. These reasons are fatal to what they are intended to support. There is but one specific for scurvy, that is potash or its neutral salts. The lemon and potato owe their specific qualities solely to this alkali. The regulations are those of 1857, and were established for our army. The food ration therein is 12 pounds of sugar and 10 of rice to the 100 rations. General Beauregard has increased the one 25 per cent. and the other 50 per cent. Neither lard nor molasses are parts of the regular ration. They have been used by this department as a substitute .for meat. Large quantities of the former were bought last summer, and arrangements for an unlimited supply of the latter had been fixed before the fall of New Orleans. General Bea

The effective strength of the Ninth Mississippi is under 400. Of the six regiments coming from Virginia, one--the First Georgia--was turned back at Lynchey report 500 sick and 8 deaths in the last twenty-four hours from typhoid fever. The term of service of nearly all the reliable troops in the district expires in April May, or June. The East Tennesseans will not organize for the war. Several regiments might be mustered in for twelve months, but with the exception of some 2,000 cegiments and Lieutenant-Colonel Stovall's battalion are for the war; the rest of the command is for twelve months, and their terms of service expire principally in April, May, and June. Of the six regiments to be sent from Virginia, J. C. Vaughn's (Third Tennessee) alone is here. The First Georgia was mustered out of service. Ma

rbitrary in their provisions — intended to coerce the free people of Kentucky into obedience to Lincoln's usurpations? These men, sir, availed themselves of the fact that Confederate State troops now return to their families, their homes, or their ordinary avocations. They are enlisted in Lincoln's service for three years or during the war. If they desert, they will be shot; if they are muon the Southern States, they will be put to death as traitors to their country. They are now Lincoln's soldiers for three years or during the war, and cannot go or come except as he orders them. you suppose those Kentucky men, who were so enlisted, intended to become the instruments of Abraham Lincoln to dig the graves of their own constitutional liberty, or to desolate the fields of the Soucommanded by the same officers and used to carry forward the same nefarious policy?
