FROM THE FORTY SECOND REGIMENT. CAMP OLIVER, Dec. 7th, Memphis. Tenn., Gen. Morgan's Division. Army of the Mississippi. Editor Democrat : Since we lefi the Kanawha valley, military duiiea have uu cupied ray time, and I have been obliged to neglect you for a litre ; and, to give tou an account of our trip from Point t'leasant to llm place, now, will seem out of date ; nevertheless, 1 shall take the lib erty of narrating some of the mosl interest inc. scones and incidents: pertnic ing to i he Missiiaippi. In the first plice, other writers hare cever triveled much, or else hare jnide gross exi,'geraiion in their accounts of Iho natural and artificial work nloiiii tl'is river. The more I see of ihe fortifications which have been consduccJ during this war, the more i hiii convinced that one miut eeo Cumberland Gap to see the strongest, lioih natural and aiti fioial foniijcalions. When we were there, wo read with admiration of ti e of the taking of Iiland No, 10, and the forts along ihe river, but, when we eee mortarij,, them, theiu victoiiei sink into in"ikMi;fi car.es. when compared with lliat of the gallant Morgan- He tu'ili the tlronisl position in America, wiihout the loss of a aioglu life. But, in a few months, he los t it, and for it he is to be called lo account; but by this exiiminaiion the Oenernl'a ability ot a Otntral, will be inure Ihor oughly subatan'.iaicd. We sailed only by day, and had an rx ce'lent opportunity for seeing all that is lo be seen. Lutro is built on fltt ground, and presents n dirty, dingy nppearunce. We anchnrel out iu liie s re uii here, for n few hours. None but officers went aslioie. Several gunho.iU and a flock of coats were here. 1 lie nioitar boats are lingular in appearance, and one would suppose (heir, lo be anything but war boutM. They are built square, wi ll all the sides inclining in. The sides are, I should judge, four feet high, and Sion clad. A pole is erected in the center, over which a savass is stretched, so that it forms a floating lent. These boAls are lowed from place to place by steam, tugs, and, at a dmiaiir.e, they appear much like a flock of ducl.s. Tho gunboats are of to msiiy diireretit builds that il would not bi praclicabU todesciibu ibum ; but they all present a very ugly appeatat.ee, es pecially when Ihe porihuifs aie open, and the guns protrude from them. The water of tho Ohio is beauliliillycloar, while that of the Mississippi is muddy, and, for at lunsl I miln, Ihn water of Ihn Ohm appears to rnfusn to mix, for one half taenia to bt clear and the other half dark. Nothing of iuiorest appeared until wo got lo Forts Wright. Randolph, No 10 and Ft. Pillow, except Ciliiinbiis, which is qr.ltu eliongly fortified. Tho lorts mount n dnion or morn heavy guns. Al! Ihe forts nun tionnd abovo are naw in ruins. Tho works at Ft. Wright appear lo lnvo bean of earth faced with stone, but Ihoy woro light j and tbe marks of our gunhnats aro still lobe seen. No. 10 is a complete humbug 1 not an earth wnik was lo bo seen, and, hu l it not been tor a fow old Sncnsh guoa lying tipnn its hanks, ono would not huva sup posed it hsd evor bnen a military post, The Island is quite largo, and, wero it not for Its being ovei flowed often, it would Diako n fino farm for some eutarpiitmg young BlennerhafSott. Our slay hero hut baon short, but negroes throng nur esmp daily. They aro willing to work wiihout cnmpennlion, except b"ard and clothns.if thoy can only go North where we eo. and be free. An old man eillorl wtih bis two sons n few d.iys sinca, and wished to gnt planes for himself nod the hojs. Inqu r.id into hit. history. Hi said his muster wsj a rebel, and had a son In Ihe 0. S serv loe. Tho mister hsd rooenily sold his wifn, leaving his family r.f small ohildrun tnoihoiless. Then, for a very trifling uftonco. tin had beatnn the 1 1 in almost out of bis Mile daughter, llo could not endure mnrot so, one duik, stnrmy nlgi.t, bo look his boys, (one 10, the other .3 years old.) and eamu to tbo camp for shulier from this flund human form. If ha enrr.es here o reclaim bis properly, I assurn you he will fare ill, lor Ihe 42 I will be alter him. Although Rebel bands try to prevont, tbo neoolu brinir in loads nf eolton, end, our forces advance. I think more will exposed for sale. Tho woaiher is decidedly eold iround frne hard night T. C. P. FROM THE FORTY SECOND REGIMENT. MEMPHIS, Tenn. Dec. 14th, 1862. Dbar Democrat: At length the 411 is "Away down Snath in Dixie." Our order to leave Char'eston.Va., came very suddenly. We miuehed from Charleston . . , . . i i to the UbIO in llireo aays, Bliu were giau lo seethe boats which -were to take down '.he liver. We look the boats early tho mnrninir of the 13 h of November. Wa arrived at Cincinnati jusl al sunset, the 14th. We received, between Point Pleasant and Cincinnati, four months pay, a nd hoped to RUl many things which we needed during the winter, but, to surprise, were ordered not lo leave boats. Despite the order, moat of trading wns dene. The afternoon of 16ib, we left Cincinnaii. Our trip down the river waa very dull. Universal dis appoinlment was lell at the appearance oi Cairo, Island No. 10, Columbus, Ihe forta that we had beard so much bout. They probably looked a more formid'tble tight monihe or a year ago. Wo got off ihe bout al Memphis, Ihe 87vh ol November. Il seemed good to walk the solid earth once more.

Couch, moved cut from tho upper part of ihe city wiib a strong detachment ol slilrnushers Tho enemy yielded gradually, though Ihev contested our progress wuh great stubbornness and for some time the ralils of musketry waa incessant. This movemeul commenced, the bat teries of the division stationed on the bluffs across ihe river opened fire wiih shell cover onr advance. The rebel infantry having fallen back lo iheir first line of Inuenchmenls and rifle pits, their batteries opened with vig orous nnd rapid fire upon our columns which hud now come loa leinoorary halt awaiiiog ihe result of ihe artillery fighting For some lime our artillery on Ihe bluffs kept up a heavy fire on Ihe rebel batteries with muoh belter success. The batteries on Taylor's Hill, r.earlr opposite Fal mouth, was Gnallr elleocrd. During this lime the rebel artillery were almost entirely devoted lo the shel ling of our advanced troops. Hancock's Division had the advance, supported by the other divisions of corps, while the 9b eerps, Oen.

From the former Ihey drove the rebels, making prisoners of seme, while the remainder look refuge behind the earthworks. This was aeeottiplisboi after most he reto and long continued efforts, voder galling sod moideroos fire.

To "open communication " with him, therefore,' Wilcox, detached his Division under den. Burns and ser.l it io the left by the edye of ihe liver, with Instructions to advance tinder cover of tho river banks until he couhl place himself in closo prox imity to Franklin's right. After ihe Imrd figbiing, Couch's division being unable to carry Ihe rebel works, the tremendous tire from their batteries rendertd it necessary for them to retire, which ihey did, when the order had been given the third lime. It is was now duru, end ihe division fell back te itsoiiginal position, after being six hours under fiio; after severe fighting nn Franklin's leit with varied sucoesa un til dark, relative position of forces about the same as In the morning, except we had gained half a mile or more on Ihe left. js-FW y nrnt, Deo IS.
