A Ten nessee river pilot, who appears to be a wide awake fellow gives an amusing account of the manner ia which the rebel steamer Robb was captured by oar gaaboats. It seem a government steamer, heavily laden with government stores ia wending her way up the river, got aground,; . News of this mishap quickly reached the confed . e rates, and about ZOO of them took posses sion of the Robb, put a light field piece on board, and started down the little stream in which she has been concealed since the first expedition of our gunboats up the Ten nessee river, tor too purpose of bagging a rich prize. The Robb arrived ia the vicin ity of the federal transport, still hard aground, alter night. The soldiers were concealed ia the thickets, oa shore, and the little privateer hunting a snug resting place, quietly awaited the approach of daylight for the cousumamtioa of her intentions. During the night, a couple of the gun boats regular night hawks, ther 1 most of their going after dark possi Iy suspi cioning mischief, came sneaking up the riv er. One of them anchored a short, distance below where the Robb was concealed and the other passing up on the opposite side of an island in the river, waa not detected by those on board the Robb, and going up the river a short distance -she, too, came to anchor and awaited daylight. Conceiving the coast to be clear, early the next morning the Robb started ouc to take possession of her prize. Before reaching it, however, one of the "Lincoln sneaks," as they are called ia Dixie, was discovered creeping after her. Greatly alarmed the little rebel steamer turned her head up stream and went off spluttering and puffing at an alarming rate. The gun boat paid the usual compliments of the morning, by sending a couple of shells, which exploded sear the sked ailing little steamer, to which it, lacking in politeness, paid no attention beyond raising more steam and puffing witbjmore vigcr. Round ing an aDrupt Dena in the river, ail on board the rebel craft were horror-struck at finding themselves immediately under the broadside of another gunboat, which ap peared to be coolly awaiting their approach Though surprised, the party ob board the Robb did not lose their presence of mind, and, as if by instinct, every man on board seized table cloths, towels, and what ever other white substance on which they could lay their hands, and waved them with frantic vigor, amidst " despairing shouts of "don't shoot, we surrender." The gunboat didn't shoot and directing the rebel steamer to follow In her wake quietly made her way to headquarters, "VrJe'fefiS'waV tbelast rebel craft in the Tennessee, and we doubt not the gunboats will take care that many years will elapse Defore a flag hostile to tbe general govern ment is ever again spread to tbe breeze on that beautiful stream.' We had the pleasure, yesterday morning, of meeting our estet wed friend, W.C. McReynolds, Lieut. Co) of the 52d Indiana regiment, one of the most gallant and clever gentlemen who ever "set a squadron in the field," CoL McReynolds "a wit necessitated to resign his position inconsequence of the illness of his wife. - We hope that he may find her health im proved and that he may soon be able to UKe the field again, with increased satisfac- nun ana rang.

Forces, ' District op west Tennessee, Pittsburg Landing; April 12, 1862." Capt. John A. Rawlins A. A General : Sib: Sunday morning, 6th inst., my Brigades, three in number, were encamped, the Frst at Crump's Landing, the Second two miles from the Landing, and the Third at Adamsville, two miles and a half further on the road to Purdy. The 11th Indiana, Col. Geo. F. McGinnis; 3th Missouri, Lieut. Col. Jas, Peckham, and 24th Indiana, Col. Alviaf P. Hovey, com posed tho Frst Brigade, Col. Morgan L. Smith commanding. The 1st Nebraska, Lieut. Col. W. D. Mc Cord; 23d Indiana, Col. W. L. Sanderson ; 58th Ohio, Col. V. Bausenwein, and 56th Ohio, CoL P. Kinney, composed the Second Brigade, Col. John M. Thayer commanding. Tbe Third Brigade consisted of the 20th Ohio, Lieut.. Col. M. F. Force; 76th Ohio, Col. Charles R. Woods ; 78 th Ohio, Col. M. D. Leggett, and the 68th Ohio, CoL S. H. Steadman, Col. Charles Whittlesey com manding. To the Division were attached Lieut Thurber'8 Missouri Battery and Capt. Thompson's Indiana Battery, also the Third Battalfbn Fifth Ohio Cavalry, Major C. T. Hayes, and the .Third Battalion Eleventh Illinois Cavalry, Major James F. Johnson. Hearing heavy and continuous cannon ading in the direction of Pittsburg landing early Sunday morning I inferred a general battle, and in anticipation of an order from Gen. Grant to join him at that place, had the equipage of the several brigades loaded in wagons for instant removal to my first camp at the river. The First and Third Brigades were also ordered to concentrate at the camp of tbe Second, from which proceeded the nearest and most practicable road to tbe scene of battle. At 11:30 o'clock the anticipated order ar rived, directing me to come: up and take position cn the right of the army, and form my line of battle at a right angle with the river. As it also directed me to leave a force to prevent surprise at Crump's Land ing, the 56th and 63th Ohio Regiments were detached for that purpose, with one gun from Lieut. Thurber'8 Battery. ; ; . . belecting a road that led directly to tbe right of the lines as they were established around Pittsburg Landing on Euuday morn ing, my column started immediately, the distance being about six miles. The can nonading, distinctly audible, quickened tbe steps of the men. Snake Creek, difficult of passage at all times on account of its steep banks and swampy bottom, ran between me and the point of junction. A short distance from it Capts. Rawlins and Rowley, attach ed to Gen. Grant's staff, overtook me. From them I learned that our lines bad been beat en back ; that the right, to which I wa3 proceeding was then fighting close to the river, and that the road pursued would take me in the enemy's rear, where, ia - the unfortunate condition of the battle, my command c nin; danger of being entirely cutoff. I. ..-.m on their representations, most prudent to vwj the column across to what is called the " river road," which, following the windings of the Teanessee bottom, crossed Snake Creek by a good bridge close to Pittsburg Landing. This movement occasioned a ; countermarch, which delayed my junction with the main army until a little after nightfall. About 1 o'clock at night my brigades and batteries were disposed forming the extreme right wing, and ready for battle. Shortly after daybreak Capt. Thompson opened fire on a rebel battery posted on a bluff opposite my first brigade, and across a deep and prolonged hollow, threaded by a creek, and densely wooded on both sides. From its position, and that of its infantry supports lining the whole length of the bluff, it was apparent that crossing the hol low would be at a heavy loss, unless the battery was first driven off. Thurber was accordingly posted to assist Thompson by a cros3 fire, and at the same time sweep the hiding places of the enemy on the brow of the hill. - This had the desired effect After a few shells from Thurber the enemy fell back, but not until Thompson had dis mounted one of their rifle guns. -During this affair Gen. Grant came up and gave me my direction of attack, which was for ward at a right angle with the river, with which my line at tbe time ran almost par allel. The battery and its supports having been anven irom tne opposite biua, my com mand waa pushed forward, the brigades in echelon, the first in front, and the whole preceded by skirmishers. The hollow was crossed, and the hill gained almost without opposition. As Geo. Sherman's division, next on my left, had not made its appear ance to support my advance, a halt was or dered for it to come up. , I was then at the edge of an oblong field that extended ia a direction parallel with the river. On its right was & narrow strip of woods, and beyond that lay another cleared field, square, and very large. Back of both fields, to the north, was a range of oiuna overlooking tbe swampy low grounds ot anaKe creek, heavily timbered, broken oy ravines, and extending in a course diag onai who mat oi my movement. An ex amination satisfied me that the low grounds afforded absolute protection to my right nanic, oemg impassable for a column of at me, i ue enemy s leu cad rested upon came necessary for me to change front by a left half wheel of the whole division. wnueine movement was m progress, across o turuugu me woods at the Southern end of the field, we were resting by, I dis covered a heavy body of rebels going rap idly to reinforce.their left, which was still retiring, covered by skirmishers, with whom tame were engaged. Thompson's battery was ordered up, and shelled the passing column with excellent effect but while eo engaged was ODeneri nnn v full battery, planted ia the field just be yond the 6trip of woods on the right. lie f j ui uua iti tao new ene my, a nne artillery duel enaiiA... honorable to Thompson and his comnamr His ammunition giving out ia the midnt of it - x oruerea .mm to retire, and Lient Thurber to take his place. Thurber ofaavJ : T 9 s . ed with such alacrity that there wa scarcely an intermission in the fire which . continued sj long and with such warmth as to provoke an attempt on the part of the rebels to charge the posi tion. Discovering the intention, the first brigade was brought across the field to oc cupy tbe strip of woods ia front of Thur ber. The cavalry irade the first dash at the battery, but the skirmishers of the 8th Mis- aour ipoured an unexpectedlSre into ttem ni they retired pell mell. Koxt tha infant r attempted a charge.

Sherman now moved forward a handaouie line of battle to engage the ene my posted in front of hla command. Sim ultaneously mine was ordered to advance, tha First iiriawiW Ipadinc. Emereine from ' the wood 3, it entered tne second neia i nave mentioned, speedily followed by the Second Brigade, when both marched in face of the enemy aligned as regularly as if on parade. Having changed front as stated, my movement was now diagonal to the direc tion originally started jon, though the order was still in echelon, with the center of each regiment of each, brigade dropped behind its place in line as a reserve. While thus advancing, CoL Whittlesey, as appears from his report, in some way lost his position, but soon recovered it. The position of the enemy was now di rectly in front at the edge of the wood?, fronting; and on the right of the open field my command was so gallantly crossing. The ground to be passed getting at them dipped gradually to the center of the field, which is there intersected by a smau run, well fringed with willows. Clearing an abrupt bank beyond the branch, the surface ascends to tbe edge of.the woods held by the enemy, and is without obstruction, but marked by frequent swells that affored pro tection to tbe advancing lines, and was the secret of my small loss.. Over the branch, up the ' bank, across the rising ground, moved the steady First Brigade; on its right with equal alacrity, marched the Sec ond, the whole in view, their banners gaily decking the scene. The skirmishers in ac tion all the way cleared '.he rise and group ed themselves behind v'ae ground swells, within 75 yards of the rebel lines ; as the regiments approached,them, suddenly a sheet or musKetry Diazed irom tne woods, and a battery opened upon them. About the same instant the right of Sherman's Divis ion fell hastily back. To save my flank, was compelled to order a halt. Ia a short time Sherman repulsed the enemy and re covered his lost ground. My skirmishers, meanwhile, clung to their hillocks, sharp shooting at the battery. Again the brigadtj advanced, their bayonets taxed for a charge, but pressed by Sherman, and so threatened in front, tbe enemy removed their guns and fell back Irom tbe edge of tbe . woods. In the advance Lieut. Col. Gerber was killed, and f is but justice to say of him, " no man . died that day with more glory, yet many disd end there was much glory." Capt. McGriffiiu and Lieut Southwick, of the same regiment, also fell gallant spirits, de serving honorable recollection. - Many sol aiers, equauy brave, perished, or were wounded in tbe same field. It was now noon, and the enemy having fallen so far back, the idea of flanking them further had to be given up. Not wishing to interfere with Gen. Sherman's line of operations, but relying upon him to sup port me on the left, my front was again changed, tbe movement beginning with the first Brigade taking the course of attack precisely as it-" bad been m the outeet. While the maneuver was being effected. squadron of rebel cavalry . ealleped from the woods on the right to charge the flank temporarily exposed. Col. Thayer throw forward the 23d Indiana,, which, aided by an oblique fire from a company of the l3t Nebraska, repelled the assailants with IooS. Scarcely had the front been changed. when the supporting force on the left again gave way, closely followed by masses of the enemy. My position this time became critical, as isolation from the rest of the army seemed imminent. The reserves were resorted to; Colonel woods, with his regi ment, was ordered into line on the left. The remnant of a Michigan regiment sent mo by Gen. McClernand, waa dispatched to tne iett ot woods. Thurber galloped up and was posted to cover a retreat, should Buch a misfortune become necessary. Be fore these dispositions could be effected, the JLitn Indiana already engaged with supe rior numbers in its front, was attacked on its left flank, but backward wheeling three companies or bis endangered wing, Colonel MCUinms gallantly held his ground. For tunately before the enemy could avail them selves of their advantage by the necessary change of front, some fresh troops dashed against them, and once more drove them back. For this favor my acknowledgments are especially due to CoL August Wilhch ana nis tamous regiment Pending this struggle, Colonel Thayer pushed on his command and entered tbe woods, assaulting the rebels simultaneously witn uoi. smith. Here the 58th Ohio and 23d Indiana proved themselves fit com- rades in battle, with the noble 1st Nebsas- ka. Here also the 76th Ohio won a bril liant fame. The 1st Nebraska fired away us last cartridge, in the heat of tbe action, at a word, the 76th Ohio : rushed in and took its place. - Off- to tbe right mean while, arose the music of the 20th and 78th Ohio, fighting gallantly in support of Thur ber, to whom the sound of rebel cannon seemed a challenge no sooner heard than accepted. From the time the wood was entered " forward " was the only order, and step by step, from tree to tree, position to position, the rebel lines went back, never stopping again infantry, horses, and artillery all went back. The firing was grand and ter rible. Before us was the Crescent Regiment,- of New Orleans ; shelling us on the right was the Washington Artillery, of Manassas renown, whose last stand was in front of Col. Whittlesey's command. To and fro, now in my front, then in Sher man's, rode Gen. Beauregard, inciting his troops and fighting for his fading prestige of invincibility. The desperation of the struggle may be easily imagined. While this was in progress, far along the lines to tu iv i. - . j iua' sounds, owever, the enemy seemed retiring oir.i what-. rU . & J " uut mier cneer rang through the woods, and each man felt the day waa Aura aooui o clock the enemy to my front broke into rout and ran throuch thn ru-nn n i or? hw' 1 c-1 -w-t..v. ucucim onerman on Sunday m n.tii t. nr Tl,.:. ... - ""i- iuwi uwuoudd nan hum nt.h uaueu aooui two miles bevnnrt Th. vithnnt V, ! - .1 f . .

Aside from the courage they all dianW. one point m their conduct is especially to be noted and imitated. I mean tha i,;ii each one showed in avoiding unnecessary of what the Division achieved. ni i.-t-. r - wftit,o. i lit; v urn nmurl myself, they ate equally proud that it all done wiih so little loss of their brave men. Of my regiments, I find it impossible to say enough, excepting that the 23d and 24th Indiana and 20lh Ohio had all participated But this was a consequently a more terrible ordeal in which to test what may be a thing of glory or shame the courage of an untried regiment. How well. they all behaved, 1 sum up in me Doast-r not a man, officer or soldier, flinched none but the wounded went to the Landing. Ohio, Indiana, Missouri and Nebraska will be proud of the steadfast xnira ui vision and so am I. Captain Thompson and Lieut. Thurber, and their officers and men, have already been spoken of. My acknowledgments are again given the gallant gentlemen of my staff Captain Fred. Knetler, and meutenams idss ana Ware. To them I add Captain E. T. Wal lace, of the 11th Indiana volunteers, act ing Aid. The courage ana juagmeni oi all of them were many times severely tried. After the battle of Donelson, l toon n1(asnr in honorablv mentioning two ot my Orderlies ; one of them, Thomas W. SimDSOn. of company I, 4th. United ' States Cavalry, I again call attention to nis gal lantry, as deserving reward. Along wi'h him I place Albert Kaufman, a Sergeant in the same company, who was or great ser vice to me, and has every quality that goiS to make a practical officer. "- " Finally, it ia so rare to hnd one ot nis grade in tbe constant and full performance of his peculiar duties, that, as a matter of justice, a passing tribute is due the Rev. John D. Kogers, chaplain of tne zda Indi ana. After the battle he waa unwearied in his attention to the wounded, and that the resting places of the dead vf his regiment might not be forgotten, he collected their bodies and buried them tenderly, and with prayer and every -.eligious rite, and in this, as far as my knowledge goes, he was as singular as he was christian. Herewith you will find a statement of the dead and wounded of my Division. Very respectfully, sir, your ob't serv't, Lew. Wallacb, Commanding 3d Division.
