Tho Times ! It is apparently quiet in front, but a strangor in camps and vicini'y would observo some stir among our troops. We notice some livo regiments pass through Tullahoma dally, whom, wo aro informed, arc engaged in throwing up important works some miles in ad vance "Wo learn that Brig. General IlaipJin Helm, of Kentucky, is to take com mand of the lamented Hanson's brig ade. This is right Gen. Helm is a most excellent officer, particulaily suit ed for cavalry service, and as this brig ado is to be mounted, ho is just the man to command it. Wo bcliovo tho voltigeur system is to bo adopted in tho mounting of this brigade. All kno.v of what Borvice tho voltigeurs wcro in Mexico, under Ma ryatt. It is customary for the mon in this branch ofservbo to ride double, and gain on tho or.cmy by rapid move, meats on horso back, and when thoy aro ready to dash upon tho foe, one half of tho troops aro dismounted, ma king an effective force, half inlantry and half cavalry, or, in otlur words, "half horse, and half alligator." The advantage of an organization as vclti gours would cnablo the riders, in the bvont tho forco should bo outnumbered, to assist their comrades to leap up be hind them, and thus escapo from rein forcements of tho enemy. Somo may eay this modo of travelling will bo too eovere upon our horses, but they must remember that wo havedifferent ani mals from tho Indiana long-headed ' corn cribs "-of .tho enemy, and in ad dition to this, if necessary, our volti geurs can "rido and tio," and that alouo would cnablo them to make long marches without being fatigued, and bo fresh when they arrive upon the battle-field. Sinco writing tho "Times" article for to-day, wo havo been informed fur ther in regard to tho nituation of affairs in front. ' It scorns that Friday is an unlucky day for tho enemy to forage. The enemy mado an unsuccessful at tempt to advance day before yesterday with another foraging party in force Ileavy cannonading was heard when our informant left, but tho result was rot known. Our infantry woro or dcrod eight miles to the front to sup port tho cavalry, and 'tis though, that we hadropuUcd thcra with considera ble loss on their part. Twclvo prison ers, taken a fowdays Binco, stated thoy woro nearly starved. Tho first thing thoy asked for was something to cat. Eighty of Wolford's men desertod and joined ua a fow days since They ,gavo suflioiont proof that wo wcro ex pooled.' in Kentucky, and would bo warmly welcomed there. Wo know 'of important movements i of. our cayalry, but wo refrain from mentioning anything detrimental to '"our cause, or that would give aid to the enemy. Sufllco it to say, they will i i mi. - V led to fall back to tho hills in that vi-! n' s 0WlY vanc.ng. xu i a..- kens will have to undergo tho eilects cinity. Tho enemy then started to wards Alexandria, when Col. Ureckin rido made a circuit around to their roar, and captured betweon thirty and forty of Stokes' cavalry, and after wards re occupied Liberty, and held itj at last accounts. The Hoacon Why. Wo as reluctantly fall back to-day to " first principles" as wo ardently do parted from them in an attempt to isue a larger sheet than usual. The clamor ot ambitious pride seduced tho whisper ings of sober, calm -eyed icason, and wo undertook what is ar. impossibility without additional aid. That aid we shall soon have, wo think. In a few days wo hope to bo able to assume again the respectable to'ja viriUs of yester day. All wo want is one more printer, and wo will leave no effort untried to get one immediately.- Wo are deter mined to make tho Bulletin all we de sire. Tho size to-day wo consider a "half shoot" pro tempore. The truth is, we enlarged a few days too soon, and a fall hack was tho con.-efpumco. ,cm By one of tho most bril'iant, strategic movements last summer Gen. Braxton Bragg drew tho enemy from this portion of Tennessee and saved to our people the immense gram and otli of a heavy Furred and bo charged by a multitude of Morgan steeds who aro perfect Wheelers. Bet them come; our boys are ready to receive them with all due '"buck and ball" courtesy, with occasional shots from our "baby-wa-hers" that open their ranks after the 'little more grape, Captain Bragg" stvle. Come on, you white-livered, col), Puritanical, hell-deserving, God forgotten wretches 1 There is yet a lio.-d of gallant spirits waiting to wel come the vile miscreants. "When that illustrious day shall rise" for old Bosy to enter tho battle arena again, "and all his armv shines," tho Confederate boys will cry aloud: "In robes of Vic toiiy through tho s'.ues, tho Glouy shall bo" OUUS J H-T Some of tho readers of Um Bui letin seem to imagine that a printer can stand everything and more be sides. We alludo to those who havo an easy time in this life, and never stood by a midnight taper, wearing out their eyes and constitution. .Many men there are who don't know the trials borne by a Typo they do not compre hend the first principles or rudiments of newspaper life, therefore if "tho sub scriber" at times ..iiou.d be disappoint ed in nut gutting his paj k: r every diy mid Sunday t 'j, why diligently hi r or crops.

To preserve his army and at the same time relieve Middle Tennes.e was a "master stroke,'' and this ho did. lie fell back from Murfrecsboro after gain ing a splendid victory, and bringing oil' as ho always does all the spoils, Truly,il 'to tho victor belong the spoil," Bragg has always been victor, and a mighty one in Kentucky, most assuredly, if we apply this test. As to his retreat from Murfree-jboro, no ono who will observe the topography of the country can fail to see the advantage of Gen. Urugg's present posifon over ono that would cnablo convoys to reach his rear during hi"h water in tho Tennssee, while at tho same time a large forco would me nace in front.
