Friday Morning, Feb'y 13th.
Tlio Times !
Our readers wero promised the facts
in relation to the situation of affairs
between this and Naihville.
We go beyond tho latter place, and
make a statement of the attack upon
Fort Donelson by our cavalry forco.
From all we can learn, wo thinU that
our cavalry remained too long after
the first attempt. It was, no doubt,
the intention to have surprised the
garrison and captured it, and destroy
tho property. Ab soon as our cavalry
iound they had not surprised it, but
on tho contrary found it garrisoned
with twelve hundred men, bohind
trong entrenchments, with plenty of
artillery, they should havo retired. Wo
cannot always havo that luck in sur
prising garrisons that wo did atilui
frecsboro, when it was captured by
Forrest ; and wo ought not to havo at
tcmptod to attack a point strongly for
tified with artillery, which took the
Abolitionists, with fifty thousand men,
after three days hard fighting, to com
pel us to surrender.
'We do not intend to discourage our
bravo cavaliers, or throw a damper up
on their troops ; but wo do not wish to
delude our people with falso hopes, and
wish rather to raiso tho bump of cau
tion in those who havo the manage
ment of these little affairs, and not
Wo aro informod that tho enemy are
advancing, and they havo re occupied
Franklin, Tonn., in forco. This looks
liko an attempt to flank us, but they
have boon advancing so s.ow for somo
days that wo cannot credit it now, un
less they aro making a feint in front
to flank us on our right or left; in
either caso they wi'l bo deceived, as
vigilance is tho watchword with us.
jg" lion. W. G. Swann, of East
Tennessee, has introduced into Con
gress, in view of the temporary open
ing of somo of our ports, a bill impos
ing an export duty of forty cents per
pound on cotton, to be collected until
wo aro recognized by foreign nations.
In liko manner, tobacco, rico, tc, are
to bo taxed. This export duty is pay
able in Confederate notifl, and should
we ppen two or threo of cur ports we
can thus rodoem a largo share of tho
outstanding carrency of the Govern
ment. . , ,
A correspondent of tho Knoxvillo
Register, writing from Richmond, Bays :
"Tho Conscript Act is still being
discussod whilo I wiito. Tho weak
minded men who cannot comprehend
the correlative necessities ot tho army
and country make no distinctions, and
vote against all exemptions. This is a
sufo policy for those incapablo of dis
crimination. It saves a deal of trouble.
'Thero are, however, some of the best
men in tho llouse who propose to con
vert tho South ,into a military tamp,
and therefore oppose every proposition
to exempt any class of men. The
opinion of tho gentlemen aro entitled
to respectfuF consideration."
In a recent descont by tho police of
Richmond upon ono of the gambling
'Hells" of, that city, they discovered a
Congressman and sevoral Quartermas
ters and ComtpisBarie I

comic and sentimental order, fixe J up

dorson has a fow loft, and if vr had a

Cure for Chills.
A lady subscriber to tho Bulletin
thinks it would bo woll for us to inform
our readers and the public generally,
that tho marrubiam vulgare plant, com
monly called hoarhound, is a certain
euro. Boil it in water and drink freely
of tho tea, which though very bitter is
a sure remedy. It cured her.
Cotton Burnt. Wo forgot yester
day to mention that about 50 bales of
cotton caught firo at Decherd, near
this pla'jo, and wero consumed. Prop
erty of Itobt. Bonner, of Lincoln
JS-Tho Chambers, (Ala.) Tribune
says tho wheat crop in this section is
promising, and if no unforeseen acci
dent occurs, will yield an ample supply.
We aro glad to learn from our exchanges
that tho prospect is lino throughout
tho Confederacy for a good wheat crop.
JgT" Ilosecranz has notified tho news
papers of Cincinnati that tho publish
ing of reports of the shipments of
supplies is prohibited, as such publica
tions wore substantially notification to

On the 28th ulf, gold at Richmond
was selling by tho brokers at 220 pre
mium, si Ivor at 190 to 200. For Vir
ginia and North Carolina bank curren
cy, tho prieo was 35 premium , and
South Carolina and Georgia 40 pre
mium. Family flour $24 to $28.
Tho Mobilo Eegiater says : " The re-
Sort has beon sometime rife that Gen.
rngg would ask to be relieved from
his present command in Tennessee, and
that Gen. 1 Johnston had actually as
sumed that command. A privato let
ter, datod Tullahoma, 4th inst., dispo
ses of the first rumor, and we believo
thero is no official confirmation of tho
last. vSinco tho battloof Murfreesboro
there has been a marked reaction in
tho sentiments of tho officers of Bragg's
army in that General's favor. Tho
wisdom of the retreat is now seen and
admitted. The following order of Gon.
Joseph B. Johnston, announced to that
army, is a happy endorsement of both
tho troops and their General."
The Register then copies tho General
Order No. 4, of Gen. Johnston's, which
has already bton published in tho Bul
letin. The Confederate privateer Uetribu
ion recently captured the brig JP.
Elliott, of Boston, and put a prize
crw aboard of her, who turned trai
tors and carried her into St. Thomas.

I. A rigid investigation of the returns nnd
muster rolls of this Army, commenced two
months since, nnd which is still being pursued,
has developed the astonishing fiict that several
thousand otlicers and men aro absent, in viola
tion of the orders of the Commanding General,
and upon permission granted and details or
dered by every grade of commissioned offi
cer, from Lieutenant up. Tho parties commit
ting these offences will be held to a strict ac
countability for tho past, and their official acts
closely scrutinized for the future. Tho coun
try i.i full of straggling officers and soldiers
holding no other authority than assumptions,
who uro hereby required these to return to
their posts and resume their duties.
I I. The authority to grant leaves of ab
sence has been reserved to these Head Quarters,
and no officer can properlj order any one of
his command beyoi.d his own jurisdiction.
When such an order desirable or necessary it
nuit be obtained by application to higher au
thority. III. Applications for lenves or orders for
detached service approved ry subordinate com-
maimers, have frequently been returned to thu
applicants to ne presented personally til Jieuu

the proper official channel, and arc notified
that applications sent in any other way will
