days, when I came to Liberty on Tuesday, where I was arrested by some of Morgan's men and taken to Woodbury, where I was released by Col. Clark, and then went to Readyville. From there I went to Gen. Crittenden's headquarters, and thence to Gen Rosecrans's headquarters, and there I was ordered to report to Col. Truesdale, at Nashville. My Instruction from Gen. Morgan was to go to Nashville, deliver letters to his (Morgan's) friends in Nashville, and then to learn whether there were any calse bottoms, for carrying dispatches. I have nor his name; it begins with H. A. B. Johnson. Truesdale, whom the Yankees denounce as an infamous swindler and scoundrel, takes the matter in hand: Note from Chief of Police to Gen. Rosecrans. General: I have sent Johnson back with information not very inviting to Gen. Morgan; yet I am of opinion the latter will make a raid upon some point in your command within ten days.

He well remembered that Johnson had that letter in charge, and he could not imagine any other cause for the calamity than Johnson's betrayal of the trust. But "our man" was eqaught him." What could Gen. Morgan say? Johnson was discharged from arrest; but matters were Morgan was cloudy and ill at ease.--Finally Johnson was sent to Tullahoma and court martials, washat serves the ends of the successful scout.--Johnson returned to Nashville speedily and secretly. but one trial by court-martial was enough for Johnson.

The Colonel said yes, that he wanted commutation for fifty days. In marching they do not issue rations. Heard Major Steel say that the command would be at Sparts in the morning.--Learned from officers at McMinnville that there were near 25,000 troops at Tullabours, that they were fortifying there, and at Manchester and Shelbyville, and that Breckinridge was at Manchester. While at McMinnville I saw the telegraph operator, who invited me to his office. He was just sending to Bragg the news I had brought. While in his office he received a dispatch from either Richmond or Charleston, saying that France had interfered, and that commissioners were to meet in Central Mexico. A. B. Johnson. Then follows, in the original, a letter from Mrs. Gen. Morgan to her sister, and other letters, and the spy proceeds with his statement:

The following facts will show how Morgan's brother lost his liberty, and "our man" came within viewat once, and under arrest as a traitor to the South. Gen. John Morgan had received the day before a copy of the Nashville U gang have complete run of affairs at Nashville; and if Capt. Morgan was captured because of that letter, they must have reas by watching her that they caught him." What could Gen. Morgan say? Johnson was discharged from arrest; but matters were not easy, as before. Morgan was cloudy and ill at ease.--Finally Johnson was sent to Tullahoma and court martials, was t day he was publicly arrested on the streets as a spy of John Morgan and thrown into the penitentiary, where had just been coion cause.

On the 12th went to McMinnville, to Gen. Morgan's headquarters. When I went into his office the General was not there, but his brother, Charlton Morgan, was in. He said to me, "Is it possible that you have got through." He then called one of the boys and sent word to the General that a man wanted to see him on important business. The General came over, and as he came in said to me: "Mr.--,I am very glad to see you." He then turned to his brother and said: "I told you he would go through, Chariton. I am hardly ever deceived in a man." I told him I had some things for his wife from Mrs. Dr. Cheatham. He then invited me over to Dr. Armstrong's, where he was boarding. We went in and he introduced me to his lady, saying, "Here, my dear, is the gentleman I told you of; he is just from Nashville."--She asked me to be seated, and the General then asked me for information about Nashville. I told him that they were receiving heavy reinforcements there — that there were fifty-seven transpo
at Lexington, Ky., upon a certain day, and desired her to meet him there. This letter contained the following note from the devoted Chariton Morgan to his lady love, as it would seem: "McMinnville, Feb. 14, 1863. Dear Mollie --Meet me at Lexington. I will be there in four or five days." Directed to "Miss Mollie Williams, care of Mrs. Mary Atkinson, Russellville, Ky." Of course this letter came to the hands of the inevitable Col. Truesdale, and he forthwith advises Gen. Boyle, commandant at Louisville. The latter sends a force and arrests Capt. Morgan, and he was sent to Camp Chase as a prisoner of war or a spy — we are not positive which. Returning on his third trip to Morgan's headquarters at McMinnville, "our man" found himself in trouble at once, and under arrest as a traitor to the South. Gen. John Morgan had received the day before a copy of the Nashville Union, containing an account of the arrest and imprisonment of his brother in Ohio. He well r

We left and went to near Lebanon that night, next day to Liberty, and the next day (Thursday) to McMinnville, where I stayed four days, when I came to Liberty on Tuesday, where I was arrested by some of Morgan's men and taken to Woodbury, where I was released by Col.
