The Battle of Perryville.
The following is a copy of Major General
Bragg's official report of the battle of Per

Headquarters Department No. 2 )
IJyantsvil!e, Ky., Oct 12th. ' (
Sir Finding the enemy pressing heavily
in his rear, near Perryville, Major General
Hardee, of Polk's command, wa3 obliced to
halt and cheek him at that point Having
arrived at Harrodsburg from Frankfort, I d
tennined to give him battle there, and accor
dingly concentrated three divisions of my
old command the army of the Mississippi
now under Major General PolkCheat
ham's, Buckner's and Anderson's and di
rected General Polk to take the command on
the 7th, and attack the enemy next morning.
"Withers' division had gone the day before to
support Smith. Hearing on the night of the
7th, that the force in front of Smith had raps
idly retreated, moved early next morning
to be present at the operations ol Polk's
The two armies wero formed confronting
each other on opposite sides of the tnvn of
Perryville. Alter consulting the General
a d reconnoitering the ground and examin
ing his positions, I deemed to assume the
command, but suggested some, changes and
modifications of his arrangements, which he
promptly adopted. The action opened at
12 V p. m., between the skirmishers and ar
tillery on both sides. Finding the enemy
indisposed to advance upon us, and knowing
i . .
lie was receiving neavy remiorcements, 1
deemed it best to assail him vigorously, and
so directed.
The engagement became general soon
thereafter, and was continued furiously from'
that time to dark, our troops never faltering
and never failing in their efforts.
For the time engaged it was the severest
North Carolina Losses.
It is impossible even to .approximate the '
truth in estimating the losses of North Car
olina, in killed, maimed and broken down,
during the war. Enough is known to fill the
State with mourning ; yet the courage and
gallantry of our brave men are upon . every
one's lips, and have extorted praises from -those
who have hitherto slandered and ridi
culed us.
As yet we are still ignorant of the losses
of many of our regiments in the battle Of
Sharpsburg. We gather the following gen-,
eral items of the losses in the 14th N. C
Regiment in that battle, from the Wadesboro'
Argus, but we have seen no full particulars :

and most desperately contested engagement
within my knowledge.- Fearfully outnum
bered, our troops did not hesitate to engage
at any odds, and though checked at times,
they eventually carried every position, and
drove the enemy about two miles. But for
the intervention of night, we should have
completed the work. Ve had captured fif
teen pieces of artillery by the most daring
charges, killed one and wounded two Briga
dier Gene als, and a very large number of
inferior officers and men, estimated at no less
than 4,000, and captured 400 prisoners, in
cluding three staff officers, vith servants,
carriage and baggage of Major General Mc-
The ground was literally" covered with his
dead and wounded. In such a contest our
own loss was necessarily severe, probably
not less than 2,500 killed, wounded and miss
ing. Included in the wounded are Brigadier
Generals Wood, Cleburn and Brown, gallant
and noble soldiers, whose loss will be se
Terely felt by their commands. To Major

two' diVlStOTlS, anIMaJyrlcncrarsOhtbiT,
Buckner and Anderson, commanding divi

ments of this memorable field. Nobler troops
were never more gallantly led. The country
owes them a debt of gratitude, which I am
Euro will bo acknowledged.
Ascertaining that the enemy was heavily
reinforced during the night, I withdrew my
force early next morning to Harrodsburgand
thence to this point Major General Smith
arrived at Harrodsburg with most of his
forces and Withers' division the next day,

We received last night, through t'he kind

20tti inst We make from them the follow

they kept him all night They offered all

proceed to personal violence. But on his
daughter, the only one then present, a young
girl about 16 years old, they perpetrated
the most fiendish brutalities, stripping her
naked, and violating her person in a room
adjoining her aged mother, whose agonies
were only augmented by hearing her cries
of despair and entreaties for relief which
she could not render.

The latest advices from Europe bring en
couraging news of our early recognition by
England. The New York Tribune, of the
20th, in an editorial, says :
The last advices from Europe render it
morally certain that France and Great Bri
tain will recognise the Southern Confederacy
on or about the lit of January next, provi
ded the situation shall remain unchanged till
that time. In other words, if our Generals
should henceforth stand on the defensive,
and in due time subside into winter quarters,
they decide to give up the Union. If our

The Washington correspondent of the same
paper writes :

recognise the Southern Confederacy, and that
her example will be followed by the largeT
Powers of Europe.
The Louisville Journal has the following
article on the situation in Kentucky.
41 Our hopes are not realized by the news
from Buell and Bragg. It appears that, in
passing through or beyond Crab Orchard,
Bragg was about seventeen miles ahead of
Buell. We doubt very much now whether
Buell can catch Bragg at all, unless the lat
ter deliberately chooses to be caught They
may, perhaps, make a stand at some strong
hold in the Cumberland Mountains ; yet it
does not seem likely, considering their nura
beri, that they could subsist there for any
length of time. We think the present
probability is that they will attempt to cross
the Cumberland river into Tennessee, this
stream being now so low that it may no
doubt be forded at many points, if, however,
Buell pushes on with fiery speed, Bragg may
fail m the attempt to put the river between
If Braggs get safe into Tennessee afier'the
late terrible spoliation of Kentucky, we can
not even conjecture what the programme of
action on either side will be taerealter. Bragg
may go into Virginia to joifi-ftee, or he may
establish himself at Chattaffooga and other
points in East Tennessee ; or he may strike
for the capture of Nashville, and seek to get
back into Kentucky by nearly the same route
he recently traveled. Meanwhile, Buell, at
the head of his magnificent army, a host ca
pable of mighty achievements, will no doub
be governed in action by the logic of his

Editor Spirit or the Ack : Looking over
the columns of your excellent paper, of 15th
Sept, I noticed a compliment to the patriot
ism of the family of William A. Graham ;
having five sons in the army. We are glad
to hear of the valor of the sons of the Old
North State, but there are several instances
in o!d Burke county, of patriotism that elipse
that of the family of Mr. Graham,

name of Heaven and woman's chastity are
our troops in that region doing ? Are they

The tcu gr. hie dispatches represent Buell
as endeavoring to flank our army in its re
treat towards Cumberland Gap.
There is reason to fear, from what is
learned in well informed quarters, that the
movements of the Yankee General have an
other and even more serious object than is
attributed to them by the telegraph. The
danger is that Buell, instead of attempting to
follow Bragg through East Tennessee, (where
there is said to be positively not food enough
for the inhabitants,) will take a nearer and
better route to the heart of the South, and
possibly aim for Marietta and Atlanta.
These however, are but speculationsso
little are we informed of the real direction
and crontrolling purposes of General Bra gg's
It is thought not unlikely that one object
accomplished by the retrograde movement of
General Bragg will bo to secure beyond all
contingencies the vast amount of army stores
which he is said to have collected in Ken
tucky. These stores are of inestimable value
to the South, but it will be necessary that
means of transportation be collected near
Cumberland Gap lor their removal.
The Government is understood to have in
formation that the army stores captured in
Kentucky are of great value, and that Bragg's
army is followed by a train of several thous
and wagons.
The Knox ville Register of a recent date,
says that until Bragg had reached London,

TnE Fight at Augusta, Ky. We see it
stated in the Kentucky papers, that when
Col. Duke entered Augusta, white flags were
hung out all over the town, and his men en
tered w?ith their guns slung and unsuspicious
of attack. Even women, waving handker
chiefs, and children, were drawn up on the
streets to witness his apparently peaceful en
trance. Without warning, he was fired up
on from windows and behind houses, which
accounts for the considerable loss among his
officers. In the fight which ensued one -of
the gunboats was disabled by a shot from
one of his little howitzers, and the other boat
steamed out of harm's way. Prentice's son
was shot after the Yankees had raised the
white flag. It thus happens that the bad
morals inculculated by the father have
brought their legitmate results to his own
hearthstone. After young Prentice and oth
ers of our men were thusassassina'ted, a ter
rib'e vengeance was wreaked upon the perpe
trators ot these outrages. One Mississippian
rushed into a house occupied by the feder
als, from the windows of which young Pren
tice and Morgan of Nashville were shot, and,
with his bayonet, dispatched five of the as
sassins. The two squares occupied bythem
were surrounded and burned. More than
three hundred Federals are known to have
perished. . - .
fearful loss of life, the loss of a battery, and
the loss of so many valuable officers, are
hardly remunerated by the capture of a bar
ren hill, the killing of five or six hundred
wretched rebels, and the taking of a lot of
1 guns and prisoners. We were certainly not
dtteatcd ; ttie enemy was lorcea to abandon
i their positions, with the loss of several wag
ons ana a large nuraoer oi prisoners.
