What be (Mr. Hale) had done, was no doubt done in conseqtienre of this opinion; that Senators did not ces-ce, to be lawyers if called upon for professional eervicts.

( Editor Si ntikel r ia- It may be interesting to some of your read-, era to know the part taken by the 60 th 0. V. I., in the important movements before, Chattanooga, oward the close of November, which ha3 resulted in the expulsion of Bragg'ar force from Tennessee nnd opening communica tion by rail and river to Bridgeport. Our brigade wont on out post duty on the morning f the 221, with the ex-.'i pectation of a general engagement on ' the next morning, but owing to a rise j in the river, Sherman did not get in position, and a reconnoisance on the center was the only movement made on the ,23d. ' Our corps' .fron V;which we picketed, extended from" th river ner the baso of Lookout ; Mountain along Chattanooga creek,- and eaat to the south front of Fort Ncgley almost, and along the creek, the pickets f the two armies were jn many places only thb width of the little creek apart. On the 24th, about niue o'clock, Hook er opened the ball some two miles to our right by on assault on the moun tain. It was one o'clock P. M. ere the forces reached the eastern elope where they could be seen, by us, when they came in line of battle and were greeted with cheers from the forces in Chattanooga valley. A; line .of rifle pits1 running nearly, west and well up to the peak; from our position, offered the first impediment to, their advance after they came in view, which they charged and - drove the enemy from without halting. Th .rebels rallied in a second line and after a few min utes sbarp fighting repulsed our men momentarily, who soon rallied, when a long and stubborn' fight ensued, neither party advancing or retreating. The mist that had all day obscured the summit, and prevented the batter ies' on top from participating, now settled low down,' and enveloping the combatants we could only, hear the sounds of the strife, which, .however, did not. slacken, and the cheer8 as one or the other charged, rose above the din of musketry. Our batteries now opened on, the trains passing to and from' the summit, some distance in the rear of the rebs, and it was apparent that the tenacity with which they contested this point was to cover their, trains.. Old Lookout batteries threw a few shot blind, but soon tired, and it was left to the 'deadly, rifle ia decide the ; contest. The fight wal kept up till 11 J P. M.; when it grad ually ceased and the stars made their appearance and the weather , cleared and became quite cold. In tbo morn ing a solitary yankee came out on the, poinVof irocks alid sighalirg with" his old hat, announced the evacuation of Lookout by the rebels. A roconnoi sance in front of our pickets disclo eed the' fact that their - piokets had with the' dawa silently'wi'tbdr awn and .ttote'ftwnW.vmtex ved B&dirdered tor report at , nost 5, to which' point we : marched ! about 11 p'pjoclt,' A.! M., 25th,' whore two days rations were Drought ns, and we pre pared andjtte dinner .and . lay down. eagerly witching the movements of the enemy on Missionary Ridge and the heay cannonading on .our left.-- Atoat kill past one P, jJ we wre ordered to all in; ftnd a?Fhing to" -oar left and toward jhe riJge, aHv&n ced bout half mile, where we form ed line of battle, Oar left tut Skrdan'i right, and a little to their left of nniTfT'i heif1nniWi- th. n.tirn i " " , ...

'We now moved out into the open ground and were 7- at' once' greeted- with ;a tremendous burst of 6hpll from their batteries hitherto eilent. ' i The order to "double quick", , was,' responded " to with a cheer, which soon degenerated into a run, and we sprung to it with a will, as the shells were buzzing deci dedly close 'over, Ihead. : Te' crossed the open Bpace without a casuality. oc curring, and. piled ' into' the deserted rifle pits os the rebs pell mell. After gaining brenth' one of two minutes we raised andi went .at the, second, lirie with a cheer, which the- rebs vacated for us, or threw down their (arms, arid cuddled down; snugly at the bottom. U.was ieuceaiy not aero ana wc np and at the, hill, which, as it became ' steeper,' slicltered us somewhat from the grape and canister now filling the air. , It was here bur men began to fall like autumn leaves. The advance was now niore steady,' and 1 taking ad vantage of every coyer the men moyed up halting only to1 ' discharge - their guns, till out of .hreatli,, when they would, take cover and rest. ' About half way up Lewis and Jleflling "fell, the former shot through the back part of the head from a cros3 fire, the lat ter in the throat, passing down through his lungs and out at his right sido, oergt. Jones and McMtllen, were here wounded. "Tho right of the regiment obliqued to the right io '. facilitate, the progress itp a ' 'dr.iught" or ravine, and drew, upon . themselves, a heavy cross fire from a proieotin? point . on the opposite side of tho . ravine, and our color bearer was Bhot down : when within seventy-five yards of the sum- ntit. . .The color Sergeants of thu lffth Illinois o(nd 11th' Michigan were !so killed about' this point and close together. At the last bench the men hung sovho few 'minutes, but giving a cheer went t the breastworks : with vigor, when some of the rebs sprang over towards fas,' while the remainder precipitately fled, leaving part of their artillery, and losing some baggage, our boys' disabling their teams in their flight.' ;K company lost four killed- Isaac Miller a,nd John Vankirk be tween lie -line of breast works, both shot through the head, and Davis Garvin wounded at the first line, in right hand, in - addition1 to the four above stated.
