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. He. saw so duhculty

ihe neglect of public duties. He (Johnson)
hsd repeatedly acted liims-elf upon this as

The ot.ly question tbat can arise is, is there
any Isw prohibiting it? There was a law

Camp 69th Rbt, 0. V. I.,
CliAtTANooiiA, Tenn:, Dec. 5, '63. (
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
ved B&dirdered tor report at , nost 5,

fringed the open apace at th? oot of

three , minijtes. ,,Th? forts ln onr rear
and field batteries at this point opened,
furiously,, tha. former oij th top' of,
and the latter on the rifle pits At the
foot and onthefside of the ridge. '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

together. At the last bench the men
hung sovho few 'minutes, but giving a

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-
