of age, and several negro women, were killed
In cold blood. Soldiers unsble to speak from
wounds were shot dead, and their bodies rolled
Into the river.
The desd snd woundod negroes were piled
Inheapa and burned. Several citizens who
Joined our forces for protection were killed or
wounded. Out of the garrison of six hundred
only two hundred remained alive

A Qallant Officer,
Wo saw yesterday a plan of the battle fought
near Columbia on the 4th of July by the gal
lant Col. O. II. Moore, at the head of two bun.
dred mon, agalnat John Morgan'a force of four
or five thousaud. Col. M.'a repulse of a forco
equal to twenty or twenlv-llve times his own
waa one of the most chivalrous alTalra on rec
ord. Thongh 'tis unquestionable history, It
reads like the wildest romance.
Col. M. prepared his defences with groat
judgment, out, as mo turning point 01 the bat
lie. he had not the slightest advanta.-o In nosh
tlon. He and hla men wero upon one side and
Morgan's men upon the other side of an abatis
of felled trees, crouching but a few yards apart
andiuring at eacu oiucr upon terms of perfect
equality through the branches. The fighting
.there waa moat terrific. All the Federal aol
dlers kept their places, the living not less than
tho doad, and the rebel hosts at length find In
lonruslou. Tbe disaster sustained by Morgan
upon thla occaalon cost him lull twelvo hours'
tlmo In hla movements, lie had Intended, aa
ho himself slated, to mako a dash Into Louis
vllle, but hla long and unexpected delay caused
him to change hla plans UulivtUi Journal.
Col. Moore was mado sick by wounds and
waa Incapacitated for active service beyond
the limit prescribed bynn army regulation,
which requires thst officers who aro on tho
sick list more than sixty days shall b dropped
from Iho service. Col. Moore Is now In tho
illy seeking to ho reinstated, and thosowho
know him well aro strongly of tho opinion thst
the Government tanuot afford to loso the ser
vices of such au officer.
