J.ratrK moved his main aruiv from Raidstown to Springfield, and a J'.utH'a troops converged near (hat place on ihe Clh, lirapg made a stand to check m tast of tho town. Heavy cannonading; and Bhelling took place, nd tlie frtiiH were several slaughtered men and hordes, 60inc prisoners, and a devastated country barns and houses, Jiay-etacks and fences heintr swept away by Ihe fir enkind led by bursting shells. Drag"; was com pelled to fall back. A;;ain that day be made a stand on the precipitous eastern bank of Pleasant Run. Another enppoment took place, Iirasg beinj rompelleu to recede, lenvinir tho sarao desolating marks the face of the dned-up country being again swept far and wido as by th besom of destruction. He tried to bnrn the bridge after passing, but was pressed too hard to effect it. On the morning- of the th, Drag's rear made a stand and prepared for bat tle, at an almost impracticable hill for our cavalry and infaiitrj', east of Lick Knn. A lew Held pieces of ours proved tho position to be untenable, and Drapg drew ofT his pieces and men. On the afternoon of tho 7th ho mado another stand, with his rear oh the crescent shaped hills of Chaplin's branch of .Salt river, and planted his artillery, shelling us. Our battery dismounted one of his pieces by oar lite, and tve forced them over tho lull, the rebel troops save it up (I presume in a mistake), and a great mistake it proved to be foe them, as;it was the centra stronghol l and very key oi the whole position, proven by the ob stinacy with whieu H was fought for the whole of the next day Our army bad been marching since) October last, through a country that afforded but little water for man or beast, and that ot a very impure quality. There having been no rain for many weeks (1 may say months), rivers and creeks were dried up. 1 saw not one drop of run ning water on the road from Louisville to the battle-field. 70 miles, except a little trickling among the loose gravel south of moomheld, 20 miles distant. In the lowest places of the beds of streams, were larger or smaller pools of impure water, tasting and smelling of ih ordure of the cattlo of tho country, and our Horses and mules that had been rid den in to drink tho lilthy compound frantic to get that as they would be in the deserts of Arabia. here tho ehal low pools were rocky tho soldiers were fain tohll their canteens far in the night after tho cavalry horses had done stir ring it. Where there was gravel bottom the poor fellows made a natural later by scraping holes with their hands near the edge of tho water, and yon would see long, dark line waiting patiently through the long hours of tho night for it to trickle in, and, filling their canteens, car ry it two and .three miles to camp. paid one poor soldier a quarter of a dol lar for a drink of his cow ordure water aud felt that he had done me an inesti mablo favor. The rebel army had drain ed all tho wells on their march, and we could only get tho slow iricklings iuto them ; as we marched along; crowds of our men were waiting arouinl tneiu all the day and night. Not one Federal sol dier uttering a complaint that I heard, or was there a Binglo nuarrel for that which was so precious to cool the tip of the tongue. It will bo understood that on this march of two groat armies over the satnaroad the horrors of thirst were s gravated by tho condition of it. I'ach column of troops could be traced many j in the most gallant and determined man miles, away by the clouds rising from t ner. and at last, at a fearful cost of Ufa their march at h ast half a mile high in the air. 1 he dust was instep deep to tho infantry, ion could not seo the sem blance of a man ou the march iu the road, but it all Hilled by like a great phantasmagoria or a horrid niu.liiii:iro dream, day and night, continuously in one living stream of cavalry, artilieiy, and infantry, vtitk a score of miles of ammunition and baggage wagons. Our front moved iu day and encamped as far as the eye could see the flies oirtho hill sides and in tho valleys at night; the leaf moved on nt night to encamp in I ho day. M.u und hoixi s wi re choked and uti angled, and dust! dust !! dust !!! and no reliet ot rain or water to (heck the suffering. It is over row, bat I have a recollection of it that w ill last mo to my grave. The enemy knew that tliey had us in the "dry valley," aiid were determined to keep us there nt any expense of blood and men. Thry boasted at Ilarrodsburg on the 7th, and on the day of the fight, that water was fifteen nnlrs In our rear, and that thiol would be our destruction; that they had tho spiings in front and would bold them. J hey proved to be not pertinacious enough t make cood their boast. At 2 A. M., cn the 8th, the rebel army Juried Laek oa oHf cavalry jJchetl Ihe central crescent. shaped lull; the cavaiiy ending for reinforcement, two regiments of infantry nnd a battery of artillery were sent to make the position good during the ni;;ht. Hide firing continued until day dawn, when "flashed forth tho red artillery" on tho enemy advancing to retake the position ho shiull havo kept the evening before, l'attery was opposed to battery as they throw themselves back on the roadp fioin Perry ville to flank us owardcbanon on our right and toward '.loomfield on our left and crush ont our advance before tho centre or rear could come up, until the line of battle was ex tended one mile on our right and four miles on our Jeff, in shape like a gigantic reapinghook. 1 , lheir artillery was' of the best con struction, and was handled in the moBt admirable idanner, as witness the mur derous precision of their fire ; fcmooth- bores, rilled guns, and tho unerring and far-shooting "Parrot t," of all calibres, from six to thirty-pounders, raising on our heads and around us storms of shot and shell, sharpnell, grape, canister, and every conceivable projectile invented by man to slay his feilow man. The earth now is literally covered with iron and lead for miles upon nines that was thun dered forth by both armies from before day-dawn until the second hour of tho moonlight. The roar of artillery was in cessant from centre to right and from centre to left, except a partial lull in the afternoon, when the enemy was matahal- mg his forces for fas last desperate and fearful attack on our left. Then as ho extended his lines, ours were extended; as he opened a batlery we galloped one up in opposition, until the fire appeared to be interminable, when The artillery was all unmasked. Our infantry regiments that were formed for the support of uur artillery, were attacked by the rebels with the most. desperate valor; charge after charge was made all day on our centre, but it was of no avail. Tho cheers of our men could be heard above tho roar of battle a mile as they repulsed him, and charging in turn drove him back. Tho roar of the cannon, the death-like shriek of the elon gated shell, the whiz of the round shot, and the whirl and rush of the many va rieties of death-dealing rifle balls, the rattle of tho musketry, with the boom of tho cannon and the sharp-ringing, mr shaking explosion of the shell, making the air hideous with noises, wera enough to make tho strongest man stand aghast and to realise that the dread king of ter rors was himself directing the storm. And, horror of horrors, men who had sucked at the same breast took deadly aim at each other in this State of Kentucky in this civil "war. Sure ly God's peculiar curses will be rained down on those, who inaugurated this fra tricidal strife for nothing but lust of po litical power or aa abstract idea. We held ourground firmly all day aid night ou our centre. Oa our right oar tide of battle prevailed, aud the enemy were swept back past Terry ville, and we captured there a large number of prison ers and ammunition wagons, which were senttoour rear during the night. Onjour left were his most determined attacks in the endeavor te force us south, cut oil' our supply trains from Louisville, and force us into a country more desolate than the one we held. His attacks there were fearful; his men, with reserves, marched from their coverts of wood in solid lines up to our regiments, posted in line of battle, with his artillery playingon them from his cross batteries ou tho distant hill-tops uuder cover of the woods. Our batteries had to be placed on Open heights, as he had chosen his position of battle on his retreat, and our artillery and in fantry were both exposed aud in full view, His .skirmishing infantry took every advantage of tree and stump, stonewall and fence, as he eama on, and some of our' regiments were decimated before the charge and shock of arms took place. Ho was repulsed and driven back, but came up again and again to the charge to lumsel., capture! and-uauiea ou io one of his hospital, one of our batteries, and silenced two others tbat be was un able to move; tho horses being all slain. His army was so horribly cut up that be was compelled to reheat before day down on tho Slth, and left our battery at bis hospital with the wheels chopped up. A great part of the men of both ar mies who fought this battle vero those of Shiloh, v ho wi-re tued to scenes of blood and carnage, and unwilling to re treat on cither side, which accounts for this deadly htru,":h they say that Shi lull was but the inlioduction lo'thia con summation of battle. The bravery arid the heroism were un paralleled. Of hundreds of such in stances, I give a few. One Illinois regi ment of Federal troops stood on the crest of a hill until M tho field oJIVcrs had' fallen, and there was noone to command, their ammunition was all expended, nnd that they died like Romans on their post i proven by tho fact, that the next morn ing after sunriac I counted forty-four of f hem lying shot dead in tho forehead or through the heart, in their exact straight lino of battle, with their arms at their sides. There wrpo one hundred and fif ty nioro arms lying in tho samo straight line, proving th.it number had been to Severely woumlod to curry their arms to the rear when ordered back. There wero fifty more lying dead in the same field with their amis Liido then, j-hol before they gained the cover of the next hill, and the enemy checked by the re serve regimen. One regiment of Fed eral troops from Michigan stood in line of battlo awaiiing the storm ; at the dot' close volley tlieir "standard was shot away, and the Hag torn to threds; , the sodiers besido the standard-bearer, caught and Hung up in tho air the tat tered remnants of ihe stars and s'ripes, until there was a heap of sixteen men shot, on the spot. When the broken remnant of tho regiment fell back, they carried all tho Uttered fragments of the old symbol as carefully as a mother bears Ler child. The standard of the 79th Pennsylvania Infantry was shot down six times, and as often reared aloft, and when forced from the field, the Colonel carried it off. The Olh Pennsylvania Regiment of Cavalry, sent out three times in solid column to draw the tire of the different batteries of tho enemy that were conceal ed, was rained upon by cross batteries with every conceivable artillery missile. With no orders to move, and unable to return tho long range lire, they sat on their horses like statues, excepting those who were struck and went to the rear. When ordered off the field each time, they went off at a slow parade walk, dis daining to strike a trot, after fire for two hours. One Federal regiment, the ICth Michi gan, and a Georgia rebel regiment, met in line of battle in open field; they de liberately planted their standards at 40 yards distance from each other, and stood and loaded, aimed and fired; both Hags wero shot down the Georgia rcjimcut almost totally destroyed, and their ban ner captured. In front of the destroyed Illinois regi ment was a worm fence, from which the rebel soldiers took such deadly aim; in nearly every fence corner lay a dead or wounded rebel soldier; tho fence was fired by the bursting shells, and in the morning a fearful sight met our eyes in the ashes of the fence lay a scorched and blackened mass of humanity, a roasted man, and to all appearances, from their struggles, many of them only wounded when the fire "caught them. The death of our poor men, even with all the agonies of thirst on them, in the scorching sunshine and the dust and tho chilling of the long, cold October night, was merciful compared with the tortures these men met in the slow but sure ap proach of the flames creeping along tke fence to the spot where they lay writhing. A Hock of sheep were in the field ; the carcasses of the dead ones lay scattered about, and the wounded ones crept roto the same fence corners with the men, and man and beast were roasted aud charred together. Hie teriiblo inhumanity of the com manders of this rebel army is proven by tho fact that on the left they had driven us back on our Btcond line ol battle Tbev had nossession of that part of the and held it until they retreated at day dawn. Dujing that time their dead and living werejliterally roasted (it is the aculual, horrible fact). Our dead, am many of our wounded, lay there stripped by tuem of all their coats, liaU and Mtoes aud some of them of pants, and in the morning they raised their heads with ghastly chattering jaws, unable to speak and fell back senseless. There was many a wounded man who was stripped ho had the life frozen out of hint on that bleak hillside, on tho cold Octobnr nigl when it required blankets or a fire to, keep a sound, well-clothed man com fori -able.. The enemy carried, through the day and night, his thousands upon Ihotisands f wounded to his rear, crowding anil crushing them iuto , Perryville to over- flowing, and into every farm house, shed and stable within three miles of bis line of battle. Gardens and orchards were strewn with them.

The righteous Lord is long suffering, but for all these tilings these men will be called to judgment, leading those poor, misguided men to whiten this land with their bones, nnd distributing w hisky to them without stint on tho morning of the 1 battle. ' Truly this land is mado a darker and a bloodier land than tho inhuman ludian made it iu the days of yoro.

I fear they would press me to perdition Can it lio wondered that on tho stacks of arms they liaa piled up to lo burned near their hospital we shoul 1 find paper inscriptions of "hopie or hell, portend ing a mutiny in plain terms. That their common soldiers are brave, our own dead and wounded too plainly attest in char acters of blood. . They swept up (while their great lead ers kept at B.tfo distance) again and again to our batteries and were decimated and driven back repeatedly ere they silenced three of ours on the left. Our artillerists, when closely pressed, filled tho camion with infantry cartridges by tho capful and swept whole scores of rebel soldiers to destruction at each discharge. I counted in one heap twenty-ono men ly ing torn and dead, sixteen, in another heap, fifteen in another, while around , they lay scattered like leaves swept from the trees. Thus has ended, the memorable battle of Chaplin Hills, whero Braxton Pragg, commanding tho rebel army invading Kentucky, made his stand ou las retreat, on ground chosen and engineered byhim, and lost his battle, crushing his regi ments so much as to nearly annihilate many of them. Perhaps there were a hundred thousand men fought at it. And of those there wero fifteen or twenty thousand either had the -enthlance of humanity crushed out of them or lie and linger in overcrowded hospitals or in the hot sunshine and chilly night air to yet, die of their wounda by thouaundd, or travel to their graves through long weary f ears of plain from wound never to be iraled, and with amputated limbs, beg ging their bread from door to door. We havo since pressed his army to Ilarrodsburg, where be made preparations for another battle. He burnt the bridges and left the ground on our approach. We are now pressing his rear closely south and east. If he makes any more stands, we may expect to have these horrors re enacted again and again until this iovad- ing army is swept from Kentucky, which they have devastated ssa p'agueof locust ' would. .
