The Position at. Murfreeaboro'. ;
The Murfreesboro correspondent of the
Cincinnati Gazette, under date of April 23d,
gives the following interesting account of tho
statft-of things at that important point;
What seems a dead quiet here is, In re
ality, not such, ttoth upon our side andyhat
of the enemy, there is a restless activity,
which, ono acquainted witn tno cne63-piay or
the contending armies, finds it dilficult to re
concile with tho almost utter spseneo of con
flicts nnd battles. "
Hut I am convinced that victories are lost
and won frequently without a sword being
drawn from its scabbard. The attitudo of the
forces of Johnson nnd Uosecrans, for the past
two months, has-been that of two practised
swordsmen, who will fence and parry for an
hour together without cither receiving a
scratch. Yet, the well-aimed blow which is
urned.-or the dexterous thrust wdiich is par
ried, is as much an advantage gained or lost a3
though bU sword's point hud reached tho body
and drawn blood therefrom. True, the con
test between the sword-anen is tliu.s never do-
cidod; and by-and-bye, each has sufliciently
tested ttw skill and atrcngta ol tho other, a
bolder and more desperate etl'ort on tho part of
cne, a concentration at tho decisive moment of
all his. strategy and energy, completes the work
and finishes the contest, either by wounding
and disarming his antagonist, or laying him
dead at his foet.
The. history of tho Unin and rebel armies
a 31id(ilo Tennessee for the past two months
la thu history of just such a sleepless trial of
vignanco aau skiii as mai ccivcen tuo two
swordsmen. The rebels aeem not to rest even
for an hour. At times a series of demonstra
tions will commence on one of our wines, and
extend entirelv round to the other, as though
the rebels would Miimino every portion of the
charmed circle within -which lies the Union
army, and discover, if possible, its vulnerable
point. But wherever he looks he iind3 himself
confronted by armed men ready, if he desires,
to accept his challenge and try conclusions
with him. Checked in this manner, he quiet
ly withdraws, and not a gun is fired upon
either side. So, too, tha enemy while. he is
making demonstrations upon our lines, sud
denly discovers th:.t ITeynuIJs or Wilder Is
threatening his own, ant at onco r. egins are
rres. of withdrawals or counter niovoficnta to
check or battle the. supposed design. And thus
the ceaseless movement goes on, the observer
constantly beholds bodies of troops marching
and countermarching, going this wtiy ni-.d that
without any apparent objert.
Kut ny-anu-bv all tins preliminary rlav
will lie over, and ail Middle Tcntiessec will
tremble with thn tread of mighty hosts and
the shock of contending anas. The opposing
generals are well aware of the magnitude ot
thestako for 'which they phiv. Tho most su-
perfieial observer can appreciate tuo Lcnehcent
results to tlio Linen cause which would attend
the expulsion of tiie enemy from r.ast Tonnes
sec; wnile the rebcl.J. universally W-h'.-ve, as
their prisoners say, a their pre.sc3 indicate,
and as their private letters fa largo nimber of
wdiich I havo recently read) dechro that if
they could only succeed In crushing Uosecrans,
!t would be equivalent to tho triumph of the
rebellion. Only yesterday I rjul an epistle,
written by a prominent "secesh," which ar
dently sighed for peace, and expressed a belief
that Kosecrans and hi army were about the
only obstacles to its attainment. With what
an absorbing interest will the nation and tho
world gaze upon tho momentous conflict about
to take place in Middle Tennessee.
