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 ,

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.
Very respectfully your ob't serv't,
