ated a force at this post which was regarded sufficiently strong to march into and recapture Clarksville. The force consisted. of parts of the Eleventh Illinois, Col. Ransom; Thirteenth Wisconsin, Lieut.-Col. Chapman; Seventy-first Ohio, Major Hart, and part of the Fifth Iowa cavalry, one section of Flood's battery, and one section of Starbuck's battery, numbering in all about one thousand and thirty men. With this force, under command of Colonel Lowe, we started in the forenoon of the fifth instant for Clarksville. The line of march lay along the left bank of the Cumberland River, which stream we forded at our starting point, most of the infantry wading it. For about eight miles the route led us over rough and rugged hills, and along the winding of deep ravines. At one o'clock P. M. we halted five miles out, at Bellwood Chapel, an old antiquated log house, hardly fit to stable mules in, named in honor of the dishonored John Bell, of Tenn., and is, in its present forsaken conditio

Lieutenant-Colonel Patrick, of the Fifth Iowa cavalry, was immediately ordered forward, with four companies of cavalry, three of infantry, and one piece of artillery, for the purpose of driving in their pickets and creating the impression that our main force was advancing upon them. During Saturday night a negro man fell into the hands of our cavalry picket under command of Captain Croft. From him a pretty correct knowledge of the position of the rebels was obtained. But the Captain not being fully satisfied, resolved that he would feel of them. He called for ten volunteers from his company, who would be willing not only to drive in their pickets, but ride into their lines and draw their fire, that he might know their exact position. The requisite number was promptly offered, and at dawn of Sabbath morning he made a dash at their pickets, chased them in, riding to wi

The firing was rapid, and between the explosions of shells ahe town, not taking civil leave even of their dear friends, and scattered in every direction. Col. Lowe sent in a flag of truce, demanding the immediate and unconditional surrender of the place, or c square, bearing aloft their regimental flag. The expedition was admirably conducted. Colonel W. W.

Information was received from time to time, giving positive assurance that the enemy, one thousand one hundred or one thousand two hundred strong, were in a good position about four miles this side of the town, awaiting our approach, having determined to give us battle. During the afternoon a small reconnoitring party, under Lieutenant Moreing, of the Fifth Iowa cavalry, came upon their pickets, who fled precipitately, and were closely pursued by our men. The chased continued more than a mile when the cavalry were fired upon by fifty or more of the rebels lying in ambush. Not a man was injured by the volley; and but one horse killed and three wounded, though the concealed force was not more than fifteen yards from the road with guns at a rest.
