morning of the fourteenth, the ball opened four miles from Blountsville, and the firing continued all day, the rebels making stands on all the hills, but they were driven from their positions and retreated through Blountsville at dark, toward Zollicoffer, on the East-Tennessee and Virginia railroad. Night coming on, we encamped near Blountsville for the night. The rebels becoming alarmed, evacuated their stronghold, Zollicoffer, during the night, and retreated toward Saltville, evidently thiZollicoffer, during the night, and retreated toward Saltville, evidently thinking we were making for the Salt Works at that place. Our troops followed them up to within six miles of Abington, Va., when they returned to Bristol. We captured here three locomotives and thirty-four cars, all of which we destroyed, as well as five railroad bridges above Bristol. We also captured a large amount of salt, sugar, etc. The rebels had thrown down the fences in the vicinity of Blountsville, and thrown up breastworks, and boasted that they intended to give the Yanks a good th

Who but the “Yankees” braved the tide Of battle, when its heat begun, And stormed the frozen, rocky side Of that stronghold, Fort Donelson? And who but “Yankees” captured there Full “thirteen thousand” daring men, While “seven thousand” still prepare To stack their arms, at Number Ten? Who but the “Yankees” faced the heat, Where death's relentless missiles sped; To Zollicoffer's band defeat, And shoot the vile arch-traitor dead? Call me a “Yankee!” --it was they Who brought Antietam's battle on, And forced the traitors, in a day, To cross again the rubicon! At Gettysburgh, 'twas “Yankees” too, That memorable triumph gained; And there the victor's trumpet blew, While o'er them shell in torrents rained!

ts of duty; On those who bravely meet their fate, With hearts of oak and souls of iron, And leave those bright homes desolate, Where hope to love sang like a syren. 'Tis not for those the trump of fame Salutes with flattery's warm caresses, Who bear through life a splendid name, That all the world admires and blesses; But oh! for those, our tears we shed, Who fall uncrowned with rays of glory, And come back like the Spartan dead, On shields that tell their own sad story. Look where brave Zollicoffer fell, To music of the death-shot's rattle; And where young Peyton's final knell Swept o'er him in disastrous battle-- For such the heart in anguish bleeds, And pours out all its warmest praises; They went forth on their fiery steeds, So soon to sleep beneath the daisies! While life was young and manhood bright, And honors clustered fast and faster, They went forth, armed with truth and might, To meet defeat and dark disaster; Theirs was the martyr's dreary doom, When, to their brows, a th

besides the Cumberland Gap: Big Chitwood Gap, 10 miles north of Huntsville, good road, easily crossed by an army; Elk Fork Gap, horse road and not used by wagons; Old Wheeler's, 3 1/2 miles south of Jacksborough, wagon road blocked up by General Zollicoffer, but it is said that horsemen abound on the hill-side; and Big Creek Gap, good road, and the one which it is conjectured the Yankees will most probably take. Big Creek Gap is 5 miles northeast of Jacksborough ; Wheeler's Gap is 3 miles stion with Colonel Moore's companies from Abingdon) the Virginia Twenty-ninth, but I found that they were under the command of a Major Thompson. an ex-officer of the U. S. Mounted Rifle Regiment, who had been in command of them while under General Zollicoffer, and who was utterly ignored by the order of organization for the Twenty-ninth Virginia that I had received. I found these men claimed to be raised for a special service, and were only to be used in Scott, Lee, and Wise Counties, Virginia
March 16. to Pound Gap, where he surprised a Rebel camp, capturing 300 rifles, destroying the camp equipage, and returning to Pikeville without loss. Gen. Zollicoffer, at the close of 1861, held a position on the Cumberland, near the head of steamboat navigation on that sinuous stream, which may be regarded as the right of. Buell to take command in this quarter, had scarcely reached Logan's Cross-Roads Jan. 17, 1862. when Maj.-Gen. George B. Crittenden, who had recently joined Zollicoffer and superseded him in command, finding himself nearly destitute of subsistence, and apprehending an attack in overwhelming strength from all our forces in that iver; leaving one gun on the battle-field and another by the way. In the heat of the battle, when the combatants were scarcely separated by an open space, Gen. Zollicoffer was shot by Col. Fry, and fell dead on the field, where his body was left by his followers. Col. Fry's horse was shot dead directly afterward. Col. Robert
own, where he turned Dec. 30. abruptly southward, being threatened by a far superior force; retreating into Tennessee by Spring-field and Campbellsville; having inflicted considerable damage and incurred very little loss. But his raid was fully countered by one led Dec. 20. about the same time by Brig.-Gen. H. Carter (formerly Col. 2d Tennessee) from Winchester, Ky., across the Cumberland, Powell's, and Clinch mountains, through a corner of Lee county, Va., to Blountsville and Zollicoffer (formerly Union Station), East Tennessee, where 150 of the 62d North Carolina, Maj. McDowell, were surprised and captured without a shot, and the railroad bridge, 720 feet long, over the Holston, destroyed, with 700 small arms and much other material of war. Pushing on ten miles, to Clinch's Station, Carter had a little fight, captured 75 prisoners, and destroyed the railroad bridge, 400 feet long, over the Watauga, with a locomotive and several cars; returning thence by Jonesville, Lee c

upon which it took place is a round, lofty elevation, a third of a mile from our camp, surrounded by deeply-wooded ravines, and cleared for the space of about two acres on top. To take and hold this Colonel Coburn, with half his regiment, dashed off through the bushes in a trot from the camp, like boys starting out on a turkey hunt. In ten minutes they could be seen on the high summit taking places. Very shortly they were fired on; the fact is, it was a scramble between Coburn's men and Zollicoffer's which should get on the hill first, approaching from opposite directions. When the firing had fairly commenced, at intervals in the roar could be heard, in the camp, the shrill, wild voices of Coburn, and Durham, his adjutant, ringing out, Give them hell, boys! Dose them with cold lead! Shoot the damned hounds! Load up, load up, for God's sake! Give it to old Gollywhopper! Then the boys would cheer and yell till the glens re-echoed. Capt.

General Anderson saw that he had not force enough to resist thed General Buckner with a division forward toward Louisville; General Zollicoffer, in like manner, entered the State and advanced as far as Sonformation of our situation as I had, would unite his force with Zollicoffer, and fall on Thomas at Dick Robinson, or McCook at Nolin.

I have just heard from him, that he had sent for occupied by a force of rebel Tennesseeans, under the command of Zollicoffer.
