tlie mure into Tennessee, also undertaken for
the purpo-e of withdrawing Sherman from

hern brilliant, but it was useless : and the j
affair of Nashville seems to have Ut'n the j
battle ol Winchester over again. A minera-
ble brigade of Yankee cavalry turns the flank
of our army, and our intrenehments are
altand.med and tbe army i iu retreat. There
is reason to 1-elteve that Forrest was absent

thus deprived of tbe most etficient art of his

Tbe Woodstock Standard has tbo follow
"It is a proud vindication of the wisdom and
ability of Govertor Smith and Adjutant Gen
eral Waahbuin. that Ihe Governor of Massa
cnutetis has adopted in every particular, the
method pursued in this State for raising the mi
litia. The latter acknowledge that it is tbe
best system be has any knowledge of. This is
tbe second instance in which Gov. Andrew has
adopted a system, put in practice by our author

A Washington despatch says ;
The escape of Hardee and his army was not
unexpected by tbe government, tor General
Sherrovn's first dispatches from Sxvannah indi
cated that he could not invest the city as to pre
vent it, as tbe river was so full of obstructions
that Gen. Foster could not get up to it with his
gunboats. General Sherman's lines was at least
twsnty-tlvc miles long, and to have covered the
road by which the enemy escaped would have
required a further extension of not less than
fifteen miles, which was cot practicable with bis
Gs. I).vidso's Expedition. Advices
from New Orleans of Dec. 21st say -
Gen. Davidson's expedition has returned after
sucessfully accomplishing its object The force
traveled 1(H) miles ia 16 days, burned 15bridges
and miny miles of railroad, and destroyed enor
mous quantities of property. The raid was one
of tbe meet brilliant of the war, and resulted in
drawing some of Hood's forces from Tennessee,
and Taylor's forces from Meridim.
An expedition had left Morganzia to co-operate
on the Atchafalsya. Another went to Keco
tne and destroyrd much property, besides cap
turing a I irge number of horses and cattle. Oar
forces tustatned no loss except in the capture of
L'cut. Whitney. A monitor was at the mouth of
