Morgan' command, who occupied Lib- j aro sficJ tl),lt somcthillg Nvi!1 eomo

the enemy on Thursday, composed of! from tb: fact that heavy eannonadin
livo regiments of infantry, and compcl-
cvery day or two proves that tho one'
Tho Times !
It is apparently quiet in front, but a
strangor in camps and vicini'y would
observo some stir among our troops.
We notice some livo regiments pass
through Tullahoma dally, whom, wo
aro informed, arc engaged in throwing
up important works some miles in ad
vance "Wo learn that Brig. General IlaipJin
Helm, of Kentucky, is to take com
mand of the lamented Hanson's brig
ade. This is right Gen. Helm is a
most excellent officer, particulaily suit
ed for cavalry service, and as this brig
ado is to be mounted, ho is just the man
to command it.
Wo bcliovo tho voltigeur system is
to bo adopted in tho mounting of this
brigade. All kno.v of what Borvice tho
voltigeurs wcro in Mexico, under Ma
ryatt. It is customary for the mon in
this branch ofservbo to ride double,
and gain on tho or.cmy by rapid move,
meats on horso back, and when thoy
aro ready to dash upon tho foe, one
half of tho troops aro dismounted, ma
king an effective force, half inlantry
and half cavalry, or, in otlur words,
"half horse, and half alligator." The
advantage of an organization as vclti
gours would cnablo the riders, in the
bvont tho forco should bo outnumbered,
to assist their comrades to leap up be
hind them, and thus escapo from rein
forcements of tho enemy. Somo may
eay this modo of travelling will bo too
eovere upon our horses, but they must
remember that wo havedifferent ani
mals from tho Indiana long-headed
' corn cribs "-of .tho enemy, and in ad
dition to this, if necessary, our volti
geurs can "rido and tio," and that
alouo would cnablo them to make long
marches without being fatigued, and
bo fresh when they arrive upon the
Sinco writing tho "Times" article
for to-day, wo havo been informed fur
ther in regard to tho nituation of affairs
in front. ' It scorns that Friday is an
unlucky day for tho enemy to forage.
The enemy mado an unsuccessful at
tempt to advance day before yesterday
with another foraging party in force
Ileavy cannonading was heard when
our informant left, but tho result was
rot known. Our infantry woro or
dcrod eight miles to the front to sup
port tho cavalry, and 'tis though, that
we hadropuUcd thcra with considera
ble loss on their part. Twclvo prison
ers, taken a fowdays Binco, stated thoy
woro nearly starved. Tho first thing
thoy asked for was something to cat.
Eighty of Wolford's men desertod
and joined ua a fow days since They
,gavo suflioiont proof that wo wcro ex
pooled.' in Kentucky, and would bo
warmly welcomed there.
Wo know 'of important movements
i of. our cayalry, but wo refrain from
mentioning anything detrimental to
'"our cause, or that would give aid to
the enemy. Sufllco it to say, they will
i i mi. - V
led to fall back to tho hills in that vi-! n' s 0WlY vanc.ng. xu i a..-
kens will have to undergo tho eilects
cinity. Tho enemy then started to
wards Alexandria, when Col. Ureckin
rido made a circuit around to their
roar, and captured betweon thirty and
forty of Stokes' cavalry, and after
wards re occupied Liberty, and held itj
at last accounts.
The Hoacon Why.
Wo as reluctantly fall back to-day to
" first principles" as wo ardently do
parted from them in an attempt to isue
a larger sheet than usual. The clamor
ot ambitious pride seduced tho whisper
ings of sober, calm -eyed icason, and
wo undertook what is ar. impossibility
without additional aid. That aid we
shall soon have, wo think. In a few
days wo hope to bo able to assume again
the respectable to'ja viriUs of yester
day. All wo want is one more printer,
and wo will leave no effort untried to
get one immediately.- Wo are deter
mined to make tho Bulletin all we de
sire. Tho size to-day wo consider a
"half shoot" pro tempore. The truth
is, we enlarged a few days too soon,
and a fall hack was tho con.-efpumco.
,cm By one of tho most bril'iant,
strategic movements last summer Gen.
Braxton Bragg drew tho enemy from
this portion of Tennessee and saved to
our people the immense gram and otli
of a heavy Furred and bo charged by
a multitude of Morgan steeds who aro
perfect Wheelers. Bet them come; our
boys are ready to receive them with
all due '"buck and ball" courtesy, with
occasional shots from our "baby-wa-hers"
that open their ranks after the
'little more grape, Captain Bragg"
stvle. Come on, you white-livered,
col), Puritanical, hell-deserving, God
forgotten wretches 1 There is yet a
lio.-d of gallant spirits waiting to wel
come the vile miscreants. "When that
illustrious day shall rise" for old Bosy
to enter tho battle arena again, "and
all his armv shines," tho Confederate
boys will cry aloud: "In robes of Vic
toiiy through tho s'.ues, tho Glouy
shall bo" OUUS J
H-T Some of tho readers of Um Bui
letin seem to imagine that a printer
can stand everything and more be
sides. We alludo to those who havo
an easy time in this life, and never
stood by a midnight taper, wearing out
their eyes and constitution. .Many men
there are who don't know the trials
borne by a Typo they do not compre
hend the first principles or rudiments
of newspaper life, therefore if "tho sub
scriber" at times ..iiou.d be disappoint
ed in nut gutting his paj k: r every diy

To preserve his army and at the same
time relieve Middle Tennes.e was a
"master stroke,'' and this ho did. lie
fell back from Murfrecsboro after gain
ing a splendid victory, and bringing oil'
as ho always does all the spoils, Truly,il
'to tho victor belong the spoil," Bragg
has always been victor, and a mighty
one in Kentucky, most assuredly, if we
apply this test. As to his retreat from
Murfree-jboro, no ono who will observe
the topography of the country can fail
to see the advantage of Gen. Urugg's
present posifon over ono that would
cnablo convoys to reach his rear during
hi"h water in tho Tennssee, while at
tho same time a large forco would me
nace in front. Kest assured General
Bragg will never bo caught napping.
If ho is not a general worthy our trr.st,
wo havo none, and yet there sti.l area

us the woman that didn't like Dr. Fell,
in that their reasons arc about as sen-siblo.
