Well, just as Rosecrans had succeeded in making the movement, Joe Johnston arrived with a few thousand men from Mobile and took command, ordered the evacuation of the town, and commenced making a big show of falling back on Rome or Atlanta. Rosecrans was completely fooled by this movement, and rushed with General Thomas's corps into Chattanooga (where he spent a couple of precious days in counting his heads, and saying his pater nesters with a Catholic Archbishop.) while he sent McCook's corps and the greater part of the cavalry still further south to flank Rome, in case Johnston should attempt to stop there.

New old Rosecrans's plan was to send Crittenden's corps down to attack Chattanooga in front, (that is, from the north side of the Tennessee river.) while he, with Thomas and McCook, should cross Lookout Mountain, and come in the rear of the town, cutting off Bragg from all reenforcements, and making him either come out on the open field, and risk all on the fate of a single battle, wh

Instead of this, as is now evident, he should have concentrated his forces, and beaten Johnston before he received reinforcements from Virginia. Thus, you see, "Old Rosy" spent a week catching flies, when he ought to have been whaling Johnston. That wily Rebel no sooner discovered the movement of McCook than he set about to "gobble" him, and threw a large portion of his forces, under Polk, between Thomas and McCook, thus forcing him to retreat. Then occurred one of the most terrific stampedes on record. Our brigade was with McCook, and brought up the rear, so I happen to known all about it. We retreated for forty-eight hours, and scarcely stopping to cal.--sleeping was out of the question.

The medical men say our loss in killed and wounded is between 11,000 and 12,000; while our loss in prisoners is between 5,000 and 7,000. All our severely wounded were left in the enemy's hands, as well as the bodies of the slain on the field, for we were forced back a distance of nine miles.
