Confederate account of the battle of Perryville. The Knoxville (Tenn.) Register has the following account of the battle of Perryville from a Confederate officer engaged in it: On the 7th Buell occupied Perryville, making it the centre of his line of battle. On the night of the 7th Hardee moved up his division, fronting Buell's army. On the evening of the 7th a portion of the right wing of the army of the Mississippi (Cheatham's division, composed of Donelson's, Stuart's, and ManeyBuell's army. On the evening of the 7th a portion of the right wing of the army of the Mississippi (Cheatham's division, composed of Donelson's, Stuart's, and Maney's brigades,) moved from Harrodsburg to Perryville, where they rested on their arms in line of battle till daylight. The pickets skirmished all night. On the morning of the 8th, at daylight, at the centre of the lines there were cavalry fights, and many were wounded on both sides. About half-past 9 o'clock cannonading commenced. At half-past 10 we discovered that the enemy were massing troops on their left to turn our right wing. At this juncture, Cheatham's division, above mentioned,

Buell while in process of transmission for file to Brigadier-General Thomas Jordan, Assistant Adjutat must be, first Louisville, and then Cincinnati. How best to reach them from Chattanooga, with Buell at Huntsville and Stevenson, is the question. It is evident he has the advantage of two bases od evidently but one of four things to do: First, to attack Halleck at Corinth; second, to attack Buell at or about Chattanooga; third, to attack Grant at or about Memphis; fourth, to remain idle at T evident that unless you reinforce General E. K., Smith at Chattanooga he will be overpowered by Buell, and then our communication with the East and our supplies at Atlanta, Augusta, &c., will be cutond one, if the newspapers will permit you to carry it successfully into effect, for Halleck and Buell occupying the base of a long isosceles triangle, of which Mobile is the apex, could get to Chatt
t says: I wrote yesterday detailing the situation of camp Dick Robinson, into which the affrighted rebels had tumbled in order to secure a brief respite from Buell a assaults, and dwelt on the chances of a battle at that place. But to-day the scene changes. The rebels are in full retreat from that doubtful fighting ground, , and are headed out wildly into the barren wastes of East Kentucky.--In this direction they will find only a prolongation of their miseries. They will not escape Buell's pursuing army, but will add to their other afflictions the curse of starvation. There is no subsistence for them in the direction they are now taking. It is onanville, and captured about two thousand from the rear of the enemy's line as they frantically tumbled across the Dick river into Camp Dick Robinson. Altogether Gen Buell has taken about five thousand prisoners in and subsequent to the Perryville battle. A telegram from Washington, dated the 17th, says: Later advices f
Further from Kentucky. Chattanooga, Oct. 20. --The last we have from Bragg's army he was at London, Ky., falling back in order towards Cumberland Gap. Buell has a very large army, and endeavored to flank Bragg while at Camp Dick Robinson, which was prevented by this retreat. Buell is yet endeavoring to flank him and there may be a battle any day. The report that our army took a large number of prisoners at Perryville, proves incorrect. Further from Kentucky.
