is w ritten. He strikes at a very diil'crcnt go tl
from that hitherto generally designated in the
Northern and Southern papers. The success of
the movement Is even now beyond pcrajventure,
owing to discoveries made and advantages gained.
Every other military column la pushing! for

will muko the winter campaign an active one,
although victories will bo gained before the frost
ruins the loads.
The telegraph h is Informed us of the fall in
the premium on gold in New Y'ork. One cause
of this is found in the above-mentioned stu'einent
of lacts, touching army operations. Another,
that the Seeictnry of the Treasury will soon begin
to "shut down" on the "g nnMers" with moro
than a mere "flash In the pan," by an admirable
nnd etl'ectivc national arrangement.
The Idea that peace will return to us curly next
year gains strength and supporters among finan

Peace will come sooner than many pjrsons

N mni im.k, November 12. I telcgr lphed you a
couple of days ago, thai tlio w liercaiioutsuf Hood,
or, more properly, ll' auregvd, was knoivn by
the proper authorities. This, General Webster,
Sheinien's Chief of Staif, permitted mo to do.
At that time the Uebel Army of the Tennessee
hud moved very little, and accomplished posi
tively nothing since my hut letter.
Prom what 1 can learn at head ;uarters, and
through other sources, General i; taiuvgir I's
headquarters are at Corinth no dount at the
stately residence of Doctor Stout, where he hung
out two years and a halt aito. Hood commands
in the field, aud is still at l'lorenco, Ala. Cueat
ham's Corps is at plorenee, upon each side of tho
river; that portion of which is upon the north
side cxtcmliug in camp as tar us i'uscuui li 1.
Stcplitu D. Lee's Corps is ut Jackson, which is
the northern terminus of the Mobile and Ohio
railroad, over which the supplies for Ucaurcg ird's
soldiers are transported, i his corps, it is stated,
moved into Jaehson on the 1 li instant, and com
menei d lortifving. This is a most fertile coun
tiy, but most of the people who oivu large tracts
ot land in the country put in cotton this year,
and forage, tluretore, is represented us being
ei y f ciircu.
S ewatt's Corps, composed largely of Miss'ssip.
pians nnd Louisianidns, is at Corinth, Jacinto,
ami kien,1. Tbe ;e places are ban Injure towas,
within fifteen miles of each other, extending
a'org the due nf tho Mobile and Ohio railro ut.
It has been definitely ascertained that the entire
tone ol Rebels, in iho vicinity above mentioned,
Inch. dire; Wheeici's cavalry, consists of n'u.it
2M.0I 0 liKhling men. Forrest's forces, which are
within two days' march of tho Hehel hoadquarters,
joined, would swell this nn tuber to ,'11000.
Di-k Taylor, who Is said to be within hailing
distance, baa not more 1 ban six thousand Infantry.
Thus the whole Kebel Army of the Tennessee,
which one yiar ago boasted ot'sevon'y-tive thou
sand vctirun warriors, cannot now upon a pinch
muster moro than forty thousand soldiers of
qualities good, bad. aud indlHeron'.
H cully, General Sliermau has kindly pormitte 1
llcuuregard to reach the end ot his ropo. There
may be a trap ut the end, and the itubal G tnoral-in-Chirf
may get into it. -One fact I am aware of,
whether llcuuregard goes to Memphis. W'es'flrt
Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, or whether ho
ititicm ties himself at Coriutn, is all tho samo to
us. The lurtber North aud Wost he goor, tho
more crippled he will become, a id the uure des

TIIK I'KIIIT AT JOHMSONVIU.K.
The wildest and most unheard-of exaggeri
tions in regard to the light at Joiinsotiville unfor
tunately totind their way into certiru nowsoa
pers, und wire subsequently telegraphed b'a I
cast all over the country. Instead of the !
(iovernment sullering to the amount of six mil- j
lion of dollars, one million will exceed the to al
Oovmimcnt loss, most of whL'h was destroyed
upon :r" r,v''.
The toiy of the destruction of vast stores rra 1
storehouses at J0111nonv.be, and its evaeu ttio i
by our forces, are stories equally absurd, an I
found their way into respectable nowspuiers
through the incoherent statements made
bv frightened steamboa'incn, who aiw nothing
of what transpired on land, and knew very liltl.i
i f what took place on water, so unifinniy su.v
eessliil and rapid hud their escape been inido
from the scenes of strife.
At tho time Forrest made his appearance at
Poit Henry, just two weeks ug), thero wero a
million (lobars' worth of Government stores at
Johnsonville. As I informed you in my last
letter, all of this movable property was sent to
this city in tho succeeding three days, and but
one steamboat 'old was transferred to tho levee
subsequently. Johnsonville is a new town, and
has but few "Government buildings as yot. It is
a very important point, I owever, just now, and
a soon as its danger was known, the garrison
was reinforced by five thousand men, two tliou
n.nd i t whom wero veteiaus, and two batteries of
The telegram transmlt'ed by tho Associated
Press agents at Cairo and Louisville, in regird
to the river lights, and tho destruction of Govern
ment und private property, are substantially cor
rect; but ihe despatches concerning the laud per
fonii itifis aro egregious mistakes.
The real facts as regards what toil; place on
hind are briefly thus: Un the night of the sitii
instant, Forrest cleared a placo fir ten piecis of
artillery ou the opposite sidoof tho river to John
sonville, and planted, or "sunk." as it is called,
that number ol' guns. Karly tlio next miming
he opened upon the gunboat and other craft, and
during the day kuocked to thunder throe tin
cla.lsnnd seven t ran ports.
The next day he opened fire njion the towa of
Joliusonville, nnd shelled it vigorously for forty
eight houiss, at tho expiration of which limine
censed filing, and moved away. During this tune
a portion of Wheeler's cavalry made tlieir ap
pearanee south of tho fort, but finding the fort
s'ria.g and well garrisoned, they returned to
During the shelling by Forrest every building
but one was struck, thut being the o llee of Cap
tain C. C. Peck. Outside of this, with the excep
tion of the destruction Uy shell and lire of tvo
buildings, no oilier dam i-'e w is done. There
wero lew stores, either under cover, or on the
leveo, us I have before mentions I, an t these wero
but slightly injured. Tue cuiiiiiiuuicatiou, both
by riilmad uiil telegraph, lietivjcn here and
Johnsonville, b id been unharmed dining the
action, und the forts are being atrengthoued.
Possibly I may deem It not injudicious to men
tion something in reitard to tho movements of
port 011s of General Shermau's armies In my next
letter. 1 will reiieiuto what I telegraphed you a
few ilavs ago, that everything is working right;
uud if we achieve the successes which it ia antici
pated are to be the result of cortain movements,

glorious soldiers in the field, und our gallant tars
upon the water, in homo ports, are to have a
gmnd Thanksgiving dinner next Thursday. In
several cities of the North turkeys are being
gobb ed up by tho thousands, while thero is no

ing to a lirst-class dinner. While the turkeys
ate hclio: dressed, the "111e.it" for tho pies being
minced, and the tlough rolled out and formed
for the reception of the delicious hash, one cannot
help indulging a thought in relation to the graud
spectacle Hint will be ebib:ted on this occasion.
While the feu si will in the main lie partaken of

weather is pleasant, lunch of it will be eaten by
thousands In the open air. How ravenous the appe
tites of those whot'or sovorul years past have been
