Tho Bemains oi the Heroic Bead.
A telegraphic dispatch has been received from
Gen. Johkstou at Bowling Green, stating that the
remains of Gin. Felix K Zollicoefsk and Lieut
Bailie P&ttox will arrive in the city tcsday, by the
Bowling Green train. It is only necessary that the
citizens of Nashville should be informed of this
fact, that they may en masse demonstrate their
profound respect for the illustrious and heroic
dead. "Wo refer to ths proclamation of the Mayor
EiilItiTnents and. ISo-Enllstments.
Hen of forethought and reflection now confess
that this is the question that should, moro than any
other, engage the earnest attention and evoke the
highest energies of every Southern patriot. It is
not a moment too soon to begin working and pre
paring lor tilling up the rnks of the army. The
crisis of our f&to will be reached in April, May
and June, The North are making immense calcu
lations on our failure to recruit men sufficient for
tho emergency. The South's zeal in the great
cause cf independence will now be subjected to the
severest test. How can men, worthy of freedom,
falter fcr one moment, when everything is at stake,
honor, liberty, property, existence itself. Let the
Legislature and the press and the people at once
take ths subject up and insure tho successful
accomplishment of the Jgreat object. Lzt it
1)2 done in time, even now.
The Memphis Appeal has tho following forcible
r3mark3 on the subject :
THE SUBJECT THAT M03T ISTITE3 ATTENTION.
Jfe are surprised that tho subject of re ehlistinp-
old troops la Otlr- mmr, ..! , . J
.for the spring campaign, is treated br tho greater
portion of the Seathern press "as a tririal matter,
which will regulate itself, and from wbich we need
have no apprehensions of danger. It is well, per
haps, that all of us do cot sit in a state of dreamy
apathy and view this important and absorbing sub
ject in a similar light, waiting for the government
to nut a ball in motion whoso momentum is abso
lutely nothing if it fail3 to receive an impetus from
the patriotic heav;ng3 o: the great popular heart.
There is dinger in tbi3 mttter which can only be
avoided by being properly acknowledged and
promptly exposed- Nothirg that we can conceive
of will prove so disastrous to our cause as a failure
to let the people they who originated and are car
rying on this war b3 fully advised of the sacrifices
and endurance that are to bi expected of them be
fore it is brought to a successful termination. Chief
among other subjects, full of solicitude, is that of
securing the punctual re-enli3tment, for the war,
of every available mn who is now in the military
service of the Confederacy a consummation which,
if attained, will render the conflict comparatively
short and decisive, when otherwise it might be pro
tracted and pregnant with frequent defeat.
It is not the part of true wisdom for us to under
estimate the importance of this matter better by
far exaggerate it, and thus err on the side of safe
ty. We observe that the Northern press are plac
ing great hopes upon our inability to pass this or
deal, and are urgirg increased vigor on the part of
the Federal Government with the view of discour
aging reenli8tmenfs. A late copy of the Chicago
Trihunc, which we have before u, ventilates this
subject in a lcDg and ckborate leader, dwolling
upon it with a chuckle of the grimmest satufau
tion. It ventures the hoisting as-sertion that if tie
Washington dctpotism will press its alleged advan
tages gained in the repulsa of Crittenden with pro
per -vigor, the "rebellion ia dead " The givinja out
from Washington, too, arc quite similar in their
character and rpiril. We are informed by a late
dispatch that "all the intelligence which the gov
ernment receives ia to the fleet that the rebel
will have great d.fiealty in inducing their twelre
meatus soldiers to remain in service after their pe
riod of enlistment expires," and that nae march
homeward is likely to begin eoon, unless circum
stances unfoerseea prevent it.'i2We can here plain
ly sec what the enemy regards as our greatett
wesfcneE-s, and that he relies upon it as the sole
source of triumph upon fields where his armies
have been overwhelmed with continuous disaster
and defeat. Forewarned, therefore, we should be
forearmed.
Lrertrttns Rutntct of re-enlistment r.l .-. or-,: ti
he taken up by STery SouthernLegislature arm every
newspaper prees, and be ventilated until it ii
brought fully before the public eye. Particularly
should this be the case in the States of the Missis
sippi valley, whose people must ia the future
arouse themselves to a better appreciation of their
situation. With Sydney Johnaton and Beaure"ard
as leaders in the nexs campaign in the West, we
cannot believe that much difficulty will be experi
enced in organizing a large and powerful army,
sufficiently effective for all purposes, provided the
work is undertaken in time.
In risw of the circumstances that surround ut,
it hehoores the Southern people to be fully aroused
to the coming crisis. A few days more will wit-
cess some of the most desperate -flghtihg ever seen
in the history of the wond.
. Tho enemy are growing desperate from the delay
of their Gensrals, the defeats they have suffered
and the loss of prestige they have endured from
their much boasting and their poor performance.

In gome rpects the inauguration of a Literary
Monthly in the South at the pressnt time haa been
chosen at 's most unpropitious time. There never
was a neriod when publishers were more torely

Dual-ass 13 notriQinc; task. Yet in another aspect,
it is a moat excellent period for inaugurating such
an enrerprite. The Yankee blockade has shut out
all ths sensation literature and magazine publicas
tions which the Southern people, from habit, had
exclusively patronlzsd. The times, it is true, do
not favor inQch reading, unless it pertain to the ex

Yet there is a mental hiatus, which it ia necessary
ta nil, ana lrom this the demind for reading mat
t2r, of a literary, philosophical, historical and mis
callaneous character is sufficient to encourags, suss
tain and nurture the growth of a periodical equal
to the most excellent that ever flourished in the
North.
We shall not discuss the question of the existence
of literary talent in the South sufficient to sustain
it, as the expression of a doubt on lhat point would
involve an absurdity so gross that we shall not per
petrate it. Ihe'Siuth has been foremost in every
lietu ner leading mi nds have ever entered, in poli
tics, science, invention, agriculture, war. Her
literary talent has never had a fair field and favor

mean success as ftferafeurs
The Southern Monthly ha3 demonstrated the ex-
tence of thi3 literary ability ia tho South duriug
its brief career. Its pages sparkle with brilliant
sketches, and entertaining essays, romances and
cnlici3m. If it is not all that our ideal of a rcpre

word a? to the engravings. We know that Mr.
MC73.Tr is a genuine artist,, but the materials at
hand are not favorable for a faithful execution sf
his sketches by the lithographer. The wood cannot
be obtained for.engra'ing. The lithograph has to

Wa chancs to kooit that if energy and skill, eu:

time is approaching, when cur Monthly will present
an tppearanco in this, as in every other respect,
that will mike the Southern people proud of this
enterprise, if3 literary contents, its engravings, its
every department. As it is, we accept it thank
fully as being quite as good as a people engaged in
an oxhausting war, who have stdly neglected to
foster the arts and literature among themselves
heretofore, and irho arc blockaded on all tids
from procuring the material to inaugurate the arts
among them, can expect. It ia the germ from
which we devoutly trust, will, in good time, spring

and cultivate all that is good and true and beautiful

Our Battalion, having been on Jheavy dut on
'advance post" with Gen. Hixdman, near ill's
Tavern, ever since the 29 th of December last, and
being considerably exhausted by labor of that
position, was recently relieved by the Missstippi
cavalry and ordered back to this place. Te are
now with Gen. BRECKiSBioaB's Brigada near Oak
land Station, 12 miles north of Bowling rcen
And as we ware ordered to this place for tb pur
pose of resting ourselves and horses, we wfl pro
bably remain some time, unless the "Yankeer' will
accommodate us by making movements thst wiD
causa ua to bo put in motion again soon. Weiave
a fine place for encampement plenty of w:ter,
wood, JSC. convenient, and with but two piket
posts to 'filh we hope to have a "good tisie." )ne
of our picket stands is within three miles ofthe
enemy near Brownsville.
One day last week Col. Biffle with a detachnent
of 100 men, went over to Brownsville to seo'xhat
"Yanks"'" were d-iag there. He fcuiid the tiwn
deserted rivt'r "past fording" skifft and hats
destroyed, and a company of enemy oesupyiegjp--
posite banks. Shoti were exchanged freely for
some time, but owiug to distance between she
parties, were of but little effect; their balU wiis-

you d u rebel you I" and other language notrery
refined or polite. After remaining there about two
hour3, we bid our "friends" good bve with J full
Tollty ani returned to camp.
The enamy have not crossed Green River, at
Munfordville, yet though their bridges hsTewen
completed two weeks ; and it is doubtful whether
thoy intend to advance by this route soon or nst.
But if they do advance hero, they will certainly
have no easy time of it. With railroads torn up:
depots and principal buildings destroyed, vrter
rendered Bnflt for use, by carcas3es of cows, hog:
&a , thrown into it, roads obstructed by felled tree;
their progress can but be slow and tedious giving
our Generals ample time to complete cvary arrange
ment that may be neceesary to give thsm s "warm
reception."
But we fear that tho programme of the enemy
has been chanced, and that they will advance by
other routes, disnppointirg ui here in cur antici
pation of meeting them soon.
The sad news from the lamented Zjllicofkrs
command cat a gloom over our camp, being accu
tomed, so long to rejtice ovor victories. This, our
first defeat, and auc7i a defeat is received with a de-
gres of sorrow though keenly felt, not easily de.

We are not discouraged; but .still trusting in the
'God of our fathers," and firmly believing in the
final success of our cause, we nsrve our hearts
anew for the coming confiict.

The following is Gen, Thomas's ofHciaf'account
ofthe battle :
Somerset, Jan.t. me route 01 ine enemy was
complete. After succeeding in getting two pieces
of artillery across the river, and upwards of fifty
wagons, they were abandoned with all tho ammu
nition, in the depot at Mill Springs. They there
threw away tneir arms ana aispersea tnrougn the
mountain by-ways in the direction of Monticello,
bat are so completely demoralized that I don't be
lieve they will maue a stana snort ot Tennessee.
The property captured on this side ofthe river
is of great value, amounting to eight six-poundera
and two Parrot guns, wiu.caisoonsfilled witffam-.
munition ; about 100 four horse wagons in pretty
good condition, and upwards of 1,200 horses and
mules ; several boxes of arms which have never
been opened, and from five hundred to one thousand
muskets, mostly old flint lock, but 'in good order ;
subsistence stores enough to serve the. entire com
mand for three days ; also a large amount of hos
pital stores.
As soon as I receive the report of the brigade
commander I will forward my detailed report of
the battle. Our loss was 39 killed and 127 wound
ed. Among the wounded were Col. McCook, 9th
Ohio, and his aid, Lt. Burte, I8th U- S Infantry.
The loss of the rebels was Zollicoffer and 114 oth.
ers killed and buried, 116 wounded, and 45 prison

ing the first intimation of the enemy s approach.
and 111 a very lew moments alterwards the enctco
ment be-j an, by an attack on the camp of that regi
ment. This fact, and tho other that they fought for
a short time unaided, accounts for the heavy losses
m the 10th , but they were very soon remfocced by
the 9th Ohio, ths 4th Kentucky, and the 2d Minne.
sota, and Wolford's cavalry. These bore the brunt
01 the light, and their conduct gave the moat per

the fight begai tho Federals had 'no artillery, but
shortly afterwards Cap'. Kinney's and ono ether

Opposed to these were 10.000 infantry, 1,500 cav

Through the kindness sf Lieut. Woodbury Wheel
er, now in the city upon a special mission, we are
in possession of a few facts which miy not prove
uninteresting to our readers. Ho reports that on
yesterday week Col. George B. Siogletery went
down the coast in the steamer Albemarle upon a
reconnoisance, and returned last Saturday, having
on Wednesday overhauled a pilot who had just es
caped from the enemy. From this source he learn
ed that on Tuesday 173 Yankee vessels were cer
tainly essaying a passaga over the bar, and heading
directly into Pamlico Sound. In addition to this
information, the pilot aver3 that he saw three of
the Yankee gun.boats wrecked and stranded at
Hatteraa.
Pit contra, however, Commodore Lynch, of Nor
folk, having ju3t returned from a reconnoissance
of the enemy, declares test there was no appear
ance of these ships at Hatteras. He Baw, it is true,
a number of crafts huddled up and close in shore,
but gives it as a correct opinion, that they were
merely transports, or coasting craft, taking shelter
from the rsging storms that h&ve lately blown over
that pai t of the coast with so much violence.
The rumor so curmt on the streets yesterday,
and so eagerly devoured, to the effect that ono half
of the Yankee fleet bad gone to Davy Jones's locker,
appeara to have had its origin in the joking humor
of a Government cfScid whs succeeded, by his
prank3, in "playin? off' uDon raore than no wi3c
head.
Newbem, N. C. is in a ferment of excitement in
expectation of an atttck ia that quarter. The town

for the early intelligence of the enemy s mora
ments and for his repulse when he does come.

tho Sound and thit a simultaneous attack would be
made at four cr fire important points, this being
one of the places, at the gams) time, the lecitima.e
result of which has been a panic here. We. how
ever, are not exactly prepared to call it a pacic
for it resembles more, a cool and delib3rato deter

their wives and children ia a safer position out of

the enemy inch by inch to the very last extremity,
should he venture to set foot upsn land. There is
a fixedness and determination on the countenance
of every one that seems to say, "if he comes we
will kill a3 many of him a3 he" can of as."
In -every part of the Old North State, her sons
