Timnias then eeiiPGon. Whipple, liis
Clnef of Staff, to ascertain -if Scliofield
iietded reinforcements. Gen. Whipple,
after examination of Scliffficld's liheJ
and reserves, reported to Gen. Thomas
that it was not necessary to -weaken Gen.
Smith's line by drawing a second di
vision from him to aid Gen. Sohofield,
and Gen. Thomas revoked the order
that had been issued.
Gen. Wilson had become impatient
at the loss of so much valuable time,
and sont one staff officer after another
to Thomas to make known his readiness
to attack, and finally rode around the
left of Hood's line to learn the cause of
the failure of the infantry to attack.
At 3 o'clock p. m. Gens. Wood and
Steed man, weary of waiting, attacked
Hood's right flank on Overton's Hill
with Post's and Thompson's Brigades,
supported by Streight's.
Our men marched fearlessly to the
front in the face of the enemy, who
were behind their fortifications, and were
met by a deadly fire of shot and shell
that fearfully decimated their ranks and
caused them to recoil and fall back.
Although their efforts were unsuccessful,
it caused Hood to again send troops
from his left and center to the support
of his right flank.
Gen. Thomas, after the assault of
Wood's and Steedman's forces, rode
Dver to his right flank to hasten, if pos
sible, the co-operative attack of Schofield
and Wilson. When he reached the po
sition of Gen. A. J. Smith, commanding
the Sixteenth Corps, Gen. Smith referred
to him a request from Gen. McArthur
asking jiermission to
ASSAULT THE SALIENT
of Hood's line directly in front of Couch's
Division, of the Twenty-third Corps.
Thomas said :
r"2so; the prescribed order of attack
gives the initiative to Gen. Schofield, in
conjunction with the cavalry, and I de
sire maintenance of this order. I will
ride to Gen. Schofield's position and has
ten his attack."
When Gen. Thomas reached Schofield
he ordered him to attack at once. Scho
field was reluctant to move, from the
fear of a loss that an assault would pro
duce, and Thomas replied that "the
battle must be fought, if men are
While the matter was under discus
sion, Thomas looked to the left, and ob
serving that McArthur was moving upon
the angle, said to Schofield :
Gen. Smith is attacking without
vailing for you. Please advance your
At this moment Gen. Wilson called
Gen. Thomas's attention to the move
ment of the dismounted cavalry upon
the fortified hill on the extreme flank of
Hood's line. Both assaults were success
ful, and almost at the same instant mov
ing southward carried the angle of Hood's
line, and Wilson's troops, moving in the
opposite direction and striking the enemy
in reverse, gained the other important
When the shout of victory was heard
upon Thomas's right wing, the divisions
of the Fourth Corps and Steedman's
troops moved upon the enemy with irre
sistible force, and Hood's right was as
quickly routed as his left had been. The
combined attack of Smith and Avilson
was made at 3:30 p. m., and by 4 o'clock
the left half of Hood's army was in
confused retreat A few moments later
the other half gave way, and Hood dis
covered that his army was hopelessly de
feated and on the aetrcat, officers and
men .vicing with one another in the race
to escape from Thomas's exultant and
victorious troops. Geu. Thomas sa's:
.'4But unfortunately night was too
near at 4 p. m. on a dark, foggy after
noon in l5ecember for the triumphant
army to gain the fruits of such a victory.
Had the attack on the right been made
at noon, the result would have been dif
ferent" On the morning of the 17th the
Fourth Corps, under Gen. Wood, crossed
the Harpeth River at Franklin and fol
lowed the cavalry force on the Columbia
Turnpike. On the morning of the ISth
Gen. Wilson moved forward his cavalry
with the intention of forcing Hood's
rear-guard to make a stand at Spring
Hill, but was unsuccessful, as Hood's
forces had marched rapidly all night
and could not again be brought to ba
The condition of the roads, from the
ice blockade and the incessant rains for
the past few days, were almost impass
able, and the cavalry and infantry on
the dirt roads or plowed fields could not
move rapidly enough to ain the flanks
of the retreating army. T hen, again, the
streams were swollen and the bridges
were burned, necessitating a wait for the
waters to fall in order that the pursuing
army might cross.
Without doubt Gen. Thomas intended
that his infantry should move over the
macadamized roads, while his cavalry
should move upon the flanks of there
treating arm', over the dirt roads, and
thus gain Hood's rear, but the condition
of the roads was such that this idea was
impracticable. The cavalry was there
fore drawn in upon the pikes and the
infantry followed in its rear. This
movement, though quickly accomplished,
failed in its main object" On the 19th
Gene. Wilson and Wood advanced under
constant rains to Rutherford's Creek.
The retreating army having destroyed
the bridge and the creek being unford
able, the troops were brought to a halt
until the stream could be bridged.
"Upon the completion of the bridge
Hatch crossed his division of cavalry
and moved rapidly upon Columbia,
where he found that Hood's forces had
crossed safely to the south bank of Duck
Ktver, and had lifted their pontoon
bridge. At noon on the 21st inst a
pontoon train arrived at Rutherford's
Creek, where a bridge was at once
thrown across and the Fourth Corps

There is undisputed proof that Gen.
Hood expected to
hold nrs link
at Columbia, and fight a battle entirely
behind Duck River, but as his demoral
ized army could not be depended upon
for any such service, he continued his
retreat towards the Tennessee River. At
Columbia Hood was joined by Forrest's
command, from Murfreesboro, which
gave him a stronger rear-guard and an
able commander, and, better still, the
roads south of Columbia were better
adapted for positions of defense.

heart of Brittany.
The old Marquise de Brillac. his aunt and'

He reached the ante-chamber of the salon
and glanced at the dresden clock on a gilt
console. Bah! it wanted 10 minutes (o the1
hour, and Kaonl knew the old lady's rigid
notions of etiquet.
A patter of high-heeled shoes, a frou-frou
of silken hkirts, aud Raoul turns from his
contemplation of the dreary courtyard to
encounter surely the daintiest little waiting-maid
that ever carried a dish.
Her lace cap is perched cnnuellishlv on

"Not yet, ma belle; it is not often such a
vision of loveliness gladdens my eyes. You
must stay a moment and talk to me tell
me how it happens that I, who hac been
mewed up here nigh two days, have never
discovered you before."
An angry flush crimsons tho girl's fair
face, to be succeeded by a sudden gleam of
mischief in her eyes, as, repressing the sharp
words that rise to her lips, she says agaiu :
"Will yon permit me to pass, Monsieur?
Mnic la Marquise is waiting for mc."
" Let Madame wait ; " then, seeing a look of
genuine distress on the lovely face, "Cune,
my fair prisoner, on one condition will I let

She drew herself up with a slatcliness
worthy of a Duchess.
"Monsieur, you mistake," she began,
haughtily; bnt Iiaoul's quick ear caught
the sound of approaching footsteps.
She could offer no resistance, embarrassed
as she was with the tureen, and before she
quite realized the fact the audacious young
nonle lian claimed ins toll and actually
kif-sed her; then, throwing open tbe door,
stood aside, bowing to her as deeply as he
would to his aunt herself.
One flash of tbe hazel eyes and he heard
her mutter beneath her breath:
"Some day, my fine Vicomlc, I will mako
you pay for this," and the pretty waitiug
maid passed into the Marquise's presence,
followed closely by the scapegrace Itaoul.
