SATURDAY . .OCTOBER 10 The 65th Again. We have been handed another private letter giving a few additional particulars of the fight near Blountsville, Tennes see. The regiment was first drawn up in line of battle in the edge of the town. While in this position the rebels shelled them fiercely but without inflicting any harm. Company H was then ordered to charge up a hill on the right through very thick pine woods in order to silence the rebel battery. The boys advanced promptly but had not got more than half way up the hill when they found them selves opposed by a full battalion of the 10th Kentucky, Adam- Johnson's old regiment, which thboys used to chase in Kentucky. Company H continued to advance under a galling fire and drove the rebels some two hundred yards when it halted. The boys went at their work perfectly cool, advancing from tree to tree, and shooting only when they could have fair aim. At times the two oppos ing forces were not over fifty yards apart and the commands of officers and shrieks and groans of the wounded could be plainly heard. The rebels finding them selves hard pressed obtained reinforce ments and forced our boys, in turn, o give back about twenty yards. The reb els then yelled and ordered a charge but were quickly repulsed by a heavy volley which company II poured into them. At this juncture company A came up with their Henry rifles, supported by two other companies, when the rebel line broke and fled in every direction, pursued by cavalry who hacked them with their sabres and took about 100 prisoners. Captain Hornbrook carried the company flag, which was riddled with bullets, and throughout the fight behaved with great gallantry. Several of our boys are men tioned as having behaved nobly. Young Jimmy Uiggs. who fought bravely, made a narrow escape. A ball passed through his hat cutting off a portion of his hair. Nothing intimidated, Jimmy at once sent his compliments to the rebel who aimed the shot. The town of Blountsville was set on fire- by rebel shells and destroyed. The poor women and children were scattered in pvery direction and were most pitia ble looking objects. The following is a full list of the mem bers of Company H, who got hurt. W. B. Stallings and George Long, killed; A. J. Stinson, wounded severely in left aide and arm; M. C. Smith, severely shot through his knee in one leg, the ball passing through the calf of the other, in falling he broke his thigh bone above the wounded knee bis wounds are re garded as mortal; P. Welte, in heel painful wound ; John Ulrick in his right wrist, but no bones are broken ; John Strange in wrist, bone fractured ; Jesse Chapman flesh wound in shoulder; Martin P. Bennett struck on shin bone. All of the wounded were taken to Knox ville, except Stinson and Smith whose wounds wonld not permit their removal. They were left at Blountsville. The letter from which we gather these facts states that they were- under orders to go to Bosecran's assistance, when they received a telegram from that Gen. eral that he was not in need of any more men. Lieut. Col. Johnson has resigned his I position in the regiment on accoant of poor health. Several other officers talk of resigning. We trust, however, for their own reputation that they will not resign while in the presence of the ene my. The following are the casualties in the other companies : Company A Wounded 1st Sergeant Jno. M. Duckworth, slightly in ankle, James Blackwell, in arm, slightly. Company I LieutJ Taylor, wqunded in head and knee. Company E Killed Geo. White. Company G Killed John Akaline. WoundedJames Hays, in face, danger ously ; Captain James M. Hammond, stunned by the bursting of a shell, not seriously. Company B Corporal John A. Watt wounded in lungs died on the 23d. Wounded Joseph N. Mounts, left side, severely ; Josiah Bingham, in right foot, slightly. The Deliverance of East Tennessee. We have been kindly permitted to make copious extracts from letters writ- ; ten by Col. John W. Foster, of the 65th j Indiana Regiment Mounted Infantry, ! who commanded the advance Cavalry ; Brigade of the 2.".d Army Corps on its en ! trance into Knoxville. The letters were not written fur publication, as is evident 'rom the manner in which domestic af fairs and merely personal matters are in- troduced. We extract the portions simply which i are of general public interest, and which will, hereafter, become a part of the his ; torv of the country, and of the glorious events which attended the deliverance of j that, long suffering but ever loyal city and country. The letters are dated Sep tember 2d, :!d and ltth, respectively, the ; last being a resume, in part, of the first, ' but giving later intelligence of the move ! ment Writing under date of Sept. 2d, : Col. Foster says: ' Yesterday was the proudest day of my fife; On Sunday last, Gens. Barn side and Carter came up, and a junction of the forces were formed at Montgom ery. My brigade arrived there in ad vance, an 1 on Sunday, the 30th of Au ; gust, 1 recei'-ed orders from Gen. Burn ; side to move my brigade five miles to the front This seemed to indicate that we would be permitted to keep the advance, and the idea pleased us all, but about daylight next morning the 1st Cavalry Brigade marched past us and went to the front on the Kingston Road. "Atsunrise the 3d Cavalry Brigade (Gen. Sha:kli?ford) passed by and out to the front towards the reported enemy on the Kingston Road. We began to grow impatient and somewhat disappointed. We waited for two hours more, but no marching orders came. " At 9 o'clock Gen. Burnside and Car ter, with their staffs and escorts, came up, and I then thought that we were to go clear to the rear, but they halted at my headquarters, and after examining the organization of my brigade, held a short private interview with me, ill which I found Gen. Burnside a most pleasant and kind-hearted gentleman. He ordered me to take my brigade on the Knoxville road and to force Winter's Gap, which would flank the enemy on our right, and force him to fall back, when, if matters went smoothly, he would give me orders to push right into Knoxville. Nothing could have pleased me better. " At eleven o'clock I formed my brig ade, and leaving every one of our wag ons behind, marched to Winter's Gap, arriving there at sundown and occupied the Gap,, finding that the enemy had fled in the morning. i " This I reported promptly to General Burnside, and about. 4 o'clock yesterday morning I received orders tj push on into Knoxville and occupy the town, at tacking any force of rebels which might be there. "We were in motion in an hour, and all along the road, as every where else, in our march through East Tennessee, we were received with the warmest ex pressions and demonstrations f joy. In the morning I expected that we would not be able to take the town without a fight, but as my brigade had been assigned the post of honor I was satisfied it would do its full duty. " A few miles before reaching the town we ascertained that the rebels had all left, the last of them having departed that morning, taking all Governmnet property with them. " The 5th Tennessee cavalry, which had been the advanced guard, surrounded the town, and about 4 o'clock I rode into the town with the staff and escort, and such an ovation as we received was never be fore, during the war, given to any army. The demonstration beggars all descrip tion. Men, women and children rushed into the streets. No camp-meeting shouting ever exceeded the rejoicing of the women. They ran out into the streets shouting " Glory, glory; the Lord be praised;" ''Our Saviours' come," and all such exclamations. "The men huzzahed aud yelled like madmen, and in their profusion of greet ings I was almost pulled from my horse. Flags Ion? concealed were brought from their hiding places. "As soon as I could get to a hotel 1 was waited upon by the Mayor a true man--and a large number of loyal men, prominent citizens, and was received with the heartiest compliments and wel come. All afternoon and into the night until the Provost Guard sent all citizens to their hon.es. the streets resounded with yells and cheers for the " Union" and " Lincoln." A marked feature of the loyalty of this section is that the people have no scruples about hurrahing for Lincoln. They recognize him as the leader and head of the Government. "Last night, after the occupation of the town, the intelligence was communi cated to the people tl ty by the firing of guns from place to place, and by signal fires in the moun tains, and this morning the streets were crowded with people from the countrv, and such rejoicing I never saw before. Here they stood and shouted with uncov ered heads beneath the old stars and stripes. With such sincere welcome tliey met the soldiers ! "The Mayor brought forth a large flag, fully one-third larger than the one that hangs over Main street, near Scitpker& Bussings, which he had kept waiting anx iously for the day when he could unfurl it to the breeze. "This was suspended early this morn ing over Main or Gay street, and at the sight of it the people, as they came in from the country, yelled with a perfect frenzy of delight. " Early in the day a procession of la dies was formed, and bearing two Amer ican flags, they marched down Main street, and under the large American flag, in order to fulfill a vow they made early in the war, that they would, in a body, march under the first American flag raised in Knoxville. It does a soldier good to fight for such a people. It is a labor of love. " Every soldier in my brigade has been paid an hundred times over since we came into East Tennessee, for all our hardships, short rations and exposures, by the hearty welcome of the people. We can see upon their faces a recogni tion of the fact that we have delivered them from a cruel bondage. "Although the rebels had for five days been removing their property, we came upon the town so suddenly, yester day, that we captured a large amount of army property, five locomotives, a num ber of cars, and saved the mills, foundry, hospitals aud other army buildings from burning. "A large number of rebels, the most prominent of them, have fled with their families, leaving their homes, furniture, &C. Gen. Buckner, when here, took pos session of Hon, Horace Maynard's house as his headquarters. Brownlow's fami ly was turned out of the house for the use of the rebels and I thought they could not complain if I in some small de gree imitated their example. So I, this morning, established my headquarters at the residence of Snead, an officer of the rebel Government. He figures i- Par eon Brownlow's book. " He abandoned .his house with his family, leaving all his furniture, dining room and kitchen ware, bis house serv ants, and almost everything. His house was elegantly furnished, and he lived in fine Southern style. He took away his silver and china ware and bed clothes, got his carpets to the railroad, but we captured the train rhat was to take them cut, before it lefu We have his cook, washer-woman, dining-room servants, and gardener, who are now officiating for ns. We are living in fine style " to the vic tors belong the spoils." 'When Parsun Brownlow comes up, (he is the agent of the Treasury Department for collecting abandoned rebel property.) I will turn it all over to him for the ben efit of the Government. There are a number of other houses similar to this, which the Provost Marshal has been or dered to take charge of and properly guard. '' Crozier, who also figures iu Brown low's book, has run off, leaviug a very fine house, elegantly furnished. Under date of September Ud, Colonel Foster writes: " I went yesterday to visit the prison vltere the rebels kept the Union men confined. It is a dirty, filthy jail, tit for nothing but criminals. I aw the room in which Parson Brownlow was confined. On the wall of it, in large black letters, is written: "DEATH TO OUR PER SECUTORS." "In one of the iron-grated cells a L'nion man has been kept for months chained with his hands to the top of the cell dur ing the day, and pinioned to the floor j during the night. He was carried off only a few days befere we arrived. "That jail has many a sad and cruel tale of wrong and oppression to swell 1 the annals of this wicked rebellion.; When we came in on Tuesday the gal- j lows was standing upon the railroad at the side of the town, where the Union men were dragged irom tne the lail and hung, contrary to all law and civilized warfare hung like felons, for faithful- public, could not be re-enslaved without ness to their Government. I a national dishonor revolting and unen- " I rode over to see it as soon as I j durable for all who are themselves wor could on the morning after we arrived, j thy to be free. The comnensation made to place a guard over it, but some en raged soldiers and citizens had gone there before me and had cut it down and burn ed it I was sorry for it, because it was in a prominent place, and I wanted it preserved as a monument of" the cruelty und wickedness of the persecutors of this people. " We had this morning a fresh out break of patriotism. The news of the Federal occupation of Knoxville had, by last night, spread into the adjoining counties, and the people flocked in from every direction. A large delegation of men and women of every age formed in procession, from seven counties, carry ing the American flag, paraded through the town aud out to camp, and the town again rang with patriotic joy. " Men who had been hiding among the rocks and caves of the mountains, and who had not seen each other for years, or since the rebellion broke out, stood grasping each other's hands beneath the folds of the old flag, while tears of joy streamed down their cheeks. I have heard of tears of joy, but never saw so much of it as here. The Enlistment or Slaves. Judge Holt's Opinion on the Legal Question. Judge Advocate General's Office, ) August 2Gth, 1863. j Hon. E. M. Sianion, Secy of War: Sir I have read aud carefu lly con sidered the letter of Hon. Hugh. L. Bond, addressed to yourself under date of the 15th instant, and mainly concur in his views, which are certainly presented with much force. The right of the Government to em ploy for the suppression of the rebellion persons of African descent held to ser vice or labor under the law, rests firmly on two distinct grounds: First, as Property. Both our organ ic law, and the usages of our institutions under it, recognize fully the authority of the Government to seize and apply to public use privute property, on making compensation therefor. What the use may be to which it is to be applied does not enter into the question of the right to make the seizure, which is untram uieled in its exercise save by the single condition mentioned. Second, as PkRSOKS. While those of African descent held to service or labor in several of the States, occupy under the laws of such States the status of property, they occupy also under the Federal Government the status of " per sons." They are referred to co nomine, in the Constitution of the United States, unci it ia not hm .r.j,,.rly Lilt " per- sons " that they ii re represented on the' floor of Congress, and thus form a prom inent element alike in the organization and iu the practical administration of the Government. The obligation of all persons, irrespect ive of creed or color, to bear arms, if physically capable of doing so, in defense of the Government under which they live, and by which they are protected, is one that is universally acknowledged and enforced. Corresponding to this obliga tion is the duty resting on those charged with the ministration of the Govern ment, to employ such persons in the military service whenever the public safety may demand it. Congress recog nized both this obligation on the one J hand and ' this duty on the other, when ! by the 12th section of the act of the 17th of July, 18G2, it was enacted that " the President be and he is hereby authorized ' to receive into the service of the United States, for the purpose of constructing ! intrenchments, or performing camp ser vice, or any other labor, or any military ! or naval service, for which they may.be found competent, persons of African de scent, .mod such persons shall be enrolled and organized under such regulations, Dpi inconsistent with tho Constitution f and Laws, as the President may pre scribe." The terms of this act are without re- : striction, and no distinction is made or was intended to be made, between per- . sons of African descent held to service j or labor, and those noi so held. The President is empowered to receive ; them all into the military service, and to ; assign them such duty as they may be found competent to perform. The tena cioafl and brilliant valor displayed by j troops of this race at Port Hudson, Mili ken's Bend and Fort Wagner, has suffi ; ciently demonstrated to the President and to the country the character ot ser vice of which they are capable. In the intertretailon elven -to the enrollment A f - i Treated .1 Li .1? A - T : x J as " citizens of the United o. , .1 , c l.. . j States, in the sense of the law, and are everywhere being drafted into the mili tayy service. In reference to the other class of per- ! sons of this race those held to service or labor the 12th section of the act of the 17th of July is still in full force, and the President may in his discretion re eeive them into the army and assign 1 them such field of duty as he deems them j prepared to occupy. Iu view of the loy--alty of this race, and of the obstinate courage they have shown themselves to possess, they certainly constitute at this crisis in our history a most powerful and 1 reliable arm of the public defense. ' Whether this arm shall now be exerted is not a question of power or right, but : purely of policy, to be determined by the i estimate which may be entertained of the conflict in which we are engaged, j and of the necessity that presses to bring 1 this waste of blood and treasure to a ; ! close. A man precipitated into a strug- ' i gle for his life, on land or sea, instinct- ' ively and almost necessarily puts forth ? every energy with which he is endowed, j and eagerly seizes upon every source of strength within his grasp; and a nation , ' battling for existence, that docs not do ' the same, may well be regarded as neither wise nor obedient to that great j law of self-preservation, from which is , i derived our most urgent and solemn du ties. That there exists a prejudice , , against the employment of soldiers of At- neap descent, is undername; u is, now aver, rapidly p-ivino- way, and never had , aforesaid information being made only by exam any foundation in reason and loyalty. It , &nit!he p"l8' Term" very "o-erate, vit : 25 Originated with and has been diligently The Doctress is at her office, in Lamaaco, near nurtured hv those in SVmDathv with the 1 Chris Millor's. Hours for consultation from 9 to ' , . rebellion, and its utterance at this mo- ment is necessarily in the interests of treason. Should the President feel that the pub lic interests required he shall exert the power with which he is clothed by the 12th section of the act of 17th of July, his action should be in subordination to the constitutional principle which exacts that compensation shall be made for pri vate property devoted to the public uses. A just compensation to loyal claimants to the service of labor of persons of Af rican descent enlisted in our armv, would accord with the uniform practice of the Government and with the genius of our institutions. Soldiers of this class, after having per- iled their lives in the defeneo nf th , therefore, should be such as entirelv to exhaust the interest of claimants, so that when soldiers of this class lay down their arms at the close of the war they may at once enter into the enjoyment of that freedom symbolized by the flag which they have followed and defended.
