Tho Captain Immediately deployed his men as eklimtalivrs, which had tun eflW't of caus ing the eumny to halt and form in line. Their ebject was discovered immediately that of an Impetuous charge, for the purpose of cap turing our otitire party. Our leader seeing this, ordered us to charge forward two hun dred yards, then mako a sudden flank move ment on the right Into a pieco of woods, and there cndunror to miike our escape a best wo could. It was but the work of n moment nd the work wan executed at great disad vantage. Throe of our party wero killed outright, and eleven captured. But tho ene my suffered equally heavy fifteen being re ported killed. - Many o' our bor fought with their gun, tiling them bjr striking tho enemy over their beads being in such close quarters as to liavo no other alternative. They all done well . and (Irserre unbounded pralso for the meniier ' i tlirv conducted thtnisclve in the conflict. i During the engagement while my horse was attempting to clear ft largo log In the path, h fell, denbine me to the trround. while a i . . . - " ' I (loicn rebols rushed up to mo nnd presenting their guns at my breaBt ordered mo to sur- Vender. I did sound was conducted to tho a little etnlnenee, nnd wire entirely hid from view, when I managed to gel behind my guard and seining his gun, strurk blm nblow across the back of his neck which stretched him liead-long on the ground. I started In a run for a farm-house, ' where I fortunately found a Union man who ctinductgd me to n phtco of safety In nn old out-house, His son had been In tho Federal army. On the following day, he piloted me out through tho country nbout twenty miles to ft small stream called Tiger river, where I took my lenvo of him with many thanks for h! kind treatment believing that 1 was now safe. Here I met with another Federal soldier who Imtl rienped, nnrl we' proicoJcJ on to JONESBOHOUGII, TENN., getber until wo came near the little town ot Olive Hill when, on turning a hill, we came full npon a Rebel Regiment of Cavalry. Seeing tbcro was no possible way of es caping them, I told my companion, wo must feign gladness on meeting them, nnd perhaps w o would faro better. But they hod no mercy whatever, and marched us before thorn some times running against us with their horses, sometimes when from weakness and exhaus tion we fell upon tho ground thoy would strike at ns with their guns nnd sabres. Sometimes wo were forced to march in doublet quick time, and keep np with their horses. It was almost too much for human naturo to stand,' but wo had iron constitutions, nnd were put to tho last and awful test of our powers of endurance, or yield and bo Fhot down and left to bo devoured by the fowlj of the air, or the wild bea9ts of the forest. In this connection, I must mention ft case of marked kindness on tbe part of one of our captors. His name was Uaxter. A rebel came ot full speed, and ns he passed me, struck mo with his gun on the head, which came near taking my life. I fell senseless to tho ground, and when I recovered, found Baxter Etnnding by my side plceding for me, while a dozen or more nifTurisQwcie urging npon the Scnrgent of the squad to " kill tlied d spy, nnd h.'ivo done with him. " Baxter plead for roe us if it won fur 1 bis brother tel ins them it was a shame and disgrace io treat ft human boin i:i such a disgusting maunor. ': He even shed toarn, n...i 11SP,1 PVWV nrn-nmont in Iim nnvror In gain tho sympathy of his brutal associates which he finally succeeded in accomplishing. Although dressed in the miserable rngged grey uniform of tho rebel, ho appeared to me ns an nngel of light. I certainly would htivo been killed upon the spot, had it not been for the kindness of this nmu whose name I shall ever revere and hold sacred wbilo life is vouchsafed to me. He was nn oasis irt tbe great desert of re bellion -of rebels and rebel eminiearies, of which there were few very few. Often had I travelled orerthe burning sands of the reb el wnste, but never did I como across suoh n. being with such a heart. I was trented somewhat better after Baxter had succeeded in appeasing the wrath of tho rabble, nnd was permitted to proceed as a prisoner'of war. Whilst we were marching through n piece of wood?, a body of Home Guards, who had been lyying in ambuth, mado n most furious attack upon our captors. The firing seemed to eomo from every point of tho compass, Xew, thought I, this is a good opportunity for us to make our escape ; but alas I the re bels wer too fust for us and put tie, to hold ing their horses. Tho rebel3 soon became scattered in the melee, and ns tho battle bo came too hard for them and waxed warm, they would mount, ono by one, nnd dash off at full speed. A great many of their horses were shot down, and uinny a rider followed' About an hour after the commencement of tho engagement, we succeeded in escaping and making our way up ft narrow defile, where we concealed ourselves. Soon the rebels, unfortunately, routed the Homo Cuanl, and were victors of the field. Then they commenced searching tho woods for ns, and our place of concealment not be ing a good one, they soon searched us out and brought us forth, as we thought, to be elaln but ns we told them we were hiding from the budhwbftckcis, we wore not molest ed. We had not marched more than fivo miles further however, until wo were attack ed a seeond time by a still larger forco of Home Guards, nnd this time the rebels were completelycut to pieces nnd wo wererc-eap-turcd, , and then we made onr way -back to tho Tier. By this time our main force had crossed tho OhiolJiver, nnd wo were left to scout our way through. To prevent being captured again we procured a complete rebel uniform nnd dressed out as Confederate soldiers, in tending to puss ourselves off as members of a rebel cavalry regiment which had become detached. This was a most providential Ar rangement, for we had scarcely reached the neighborhood of Olivo Hill, when we wero ngaia overhauled by ft rebel eavalry forco. It appeared that Kentucky was full of these prowling bands, destroying nnd murdering at will. We were taken to tho town, and ns we passed ourselves od as members of tho Gth (imirgin cavalry, we were '.rented kindly. At Olive Hill we saw a sit-lit which was terrifying every boil.-.' we , I'm; I " i'''l destroyed b) til ; r,i,:. i !'. t !-i.-i t rians, nnd iv hi '' tUv 1 ! - f")''1 witl' llicm' Women mid eh moit"!ng most pitcounly, hmnele . i , . w : 1 !i joic- less. One poor woman, wlionn inii.tit vn: only two days old, was brought out nnd 1 . i I lipoti the ground, while her hoHe w.1 bf n; ' . . . .. ... . w ... . ... consumed by fire. I ventured to pknd for lir a nd only received rurses nnd abuse for my sympathy, 1 prornred some hed-rlnthiug and tried to make her romfoitAble, but she was In tho open air, nnd at lenst n mile from rtny hniuc. Thi was cruelly equal to that enacted In.thodnrk nges when themorc bar barom tho treatment of an enemy tho great er the renown of tho perpetrators. A rebel heard me talking to this lady, and struck me with his gun another rebel saw the act nnd took it up for tne, nnd taking n large stick, conjmencfd ft regular battle with the brnfe, which resulted In bloody work be fore they got through. Whatnrer becamo of this poor woman 1 was nerer able to learn, .She wm left lying in her helpless rendition, with her weeping Infant In her arms, n picture of despair, nnd the victim ir the uitnl Ltatlleta croe!t. FllIDAY, DECEMBER In tho evening we started on the march; pur destination I could not learn. I resolved to watch my opportunity as soon ns dark' set in, and leave my command for ft season, which I did without any inconvenience whatever dropping into ft woy-sido house on the pre text of getting eomo water to drink. I soon reached tho Ohio river, which I crossod in ft fcrrv-boat. I reached Ports- month, Ohio, on tho last of September, 18GMf where I thanked a merciful Brovidenco for my deliverance, nnd where I fcltsafc, although I felt somywhat embarrassed pecuniarily and physically. My ilehtt was not tho most pleas ing character, nnd I became ft laughing-stock to the gazing public. My nppetrnnce was ludicrous enough, my pants only reaching to my knees, without any coat or bat, and an old pair of worn-out shoes tied on with strings. At this town we were ' treated very unworthily by tho inhabitants which lead us to infer that the most of them sympathiz ed with the rebel canso. Even the Post Com mandant, treated us most" shamefully, But wo found friends, In the country fifteen miles distant tho right kind of friends friendj who , had hearts of flesh and loved tho gloriouj Lnion, who soon re plenished ourw urdrobes, after which, I set out to join my command, which I lenmed was at Oakland. I made an effort to get on the cars, so us to rest my weary limbs, but was refused by the unworthy conductor of tho fain, 60 I followed the track, on foot, ns I had tho war path many a long heur and day in succession before, and felt it a duty nay, a privilege, believing there was no sacrifice too great to perform tor tho sake of my country. I walked thus some fifteen miles, when I beenme completely exhausted and set down by the road-side to rest; and was redoing pgainst a tree, wjth my thoughts upon the ungratefulness of the human race generally, when a lady nnd gentleman, who were pass ing, approached me, nnd seeing I was in dis tress, the gentleman accosted mo with : " What is tho matter ?'' My heart was so depressed, I could give no utterance to my chunked ords. " You Beem to be in distress." " I am resting," I finally replied. "Where are you travelling?" " I am endeavoring to reach my command." " Where is your comnmud ?"' " 1 understand it is at Oakland, Ohio." " What regiment do you belong to?1' "The 2nd Tennessee Cavalry.'' " You are nu Last Tenuesseean, then V ' Yes." " Go with mo to my house, end stay with me for the night, and by to-morrow yen will bo better nblo to stand the fitigue of travel. I can never suu'an East Tenuesseean suffer. They are a brave nnd patriotic people, and deserve tho iwsistunco of every true and good lover of the Union !" His words were to my heart ns sunbeams to the flower. I felt renew ed, and gladly ac ceptcd his kind offer. I had not eaten any food for nearly thirty hours, nnd you mny well surmise tho relish I had for tho many delicucies this good Union man ret, before my hungry gaze on that occasion, I was without money or I might have had plenty or, had I been like many soldiers, take what I needed by force, I would hnvo lacked for nothing, but I was in a country where the laws were In force, nnd I had ever been in structed by kind parents to respect the laws of my couutry, nnd to do no net which would bring the blush of uhnmo to my cheek, or that would bring reproach upon them. When the morrow came, nnd I was nbout to tnkeniy departure, my kind host, remark ed! "' Have you no money?" None in the world." "Then, you must, have some," ho replied, nnd taking his pocket-book out, In handed mo a ten dolliir bill, saying! "This will do you until you enn reach your command. Co to the next station, and take tho train for Oakland nnd may good luck attend you !' I shall not soon forget tho expression of the countetinnco of this worthy philanthropist ns ho placed the money into my hand. He was ono of the few who appreciated the rent condition, the (finis, the hardships nnd the Bufferings of the soldier. (TO 1IH COXTINCKII. ) LETTERS FROM NASlfviLLE.

The Governor attributes milch of the lawlessness rxiting In the city nnd surrounding coun try to Intemperance ; nnd In this 1 agree with his Kxcrllinry to n jircnt extent, but not nl together. Did the Legislature have reason to believe that the great evils which are threatening the community, grow out of the sale and use of spirituous liquors, It would, In my opinion, not only be justifiable In clos ing every drinking snleou in tho tily, but In knocking in the head of every bnrrrl and breaking every vessel containing the vita In stigator of crime nnd licentiousness. But, while It cannot be denied that the rnnntry Is Indebted to Intoxicating liquors for many, very ninny, ol the evils with which It Is af flicted, it must he admitted that thoro nre other causes. The country Is full of men by nature Inclined to be outlaws, nnd the war through which It linn pained nll'ordVd that class of men ample opportunities for eultiva tiug nnd putting Into prnrtico their natural itirlinntintis.

The lower Houso has. a bill now under con federation, to b entitled "nn act to wind up the Hank of Tennessee." Hequiriiig said Bank, to redeem her notes, which appear to meet very little opposition. Also, another bill has boon introduced nnd passed first reading in the House to repeal the disfranchise law, passed at the spring' session of the General Assembly, and giving to all free persons of Constitutional nge nnd residence, the rijiht of the elective franchise. The bill so introduced, was referred to a com mittee, who will bo viry likely to recommend its rejection, ami the Houso concur in tbe same. Also, nnnther bill has passed on its second reading in the House, repealing nn act pass ed nt tho spring session, nllowing discharged Union soldiers nud loyal citizens to carry side arms. Another bill has passed the lower House for the relief of Hail Bond Companies, which appear to have ft good effect, resulting iu the payment of over seven hundred thousand dollars of Slate bonds, into the State Treas ury, by tho Nashville and Louisville Bail Ituad Company. A resolution has passed the lower nouse, for an Adjournment of the present General Assembly, to take place on the sixteenth of December next, (o meet on the eighth day of January, Business in Nashville, is quite active, Cot ton is gradually ud aiiiing, being worth from 45e to 47c.
