At 2 o'clock the stage arrived from
Lebanon, and among the passengers
was Mr. R. E. Morris, a member of.
company A, McNairy's battalion,:
brought additional news, and to whom
we are indebted for the account which
follows :
Gen. Crittenden, on bearing that
the enemy, 3000 strong, had crossed
Fishing Creek, ordered Gen. Zolli-;
coffer to advance and give them bat
tie. Gen. Zollicoffer, as we under
stand, protested against the movement,
preferring, as he alleged, that the,
enemy should make an attack on our i
breastworks. Gen. Grittenden, how-.
ever, insisting that his plans should
be carried into execution. Gen. Zol
licoffer, at the head of portions of
Battle's, Newman's, Stanton's, Pow
ell's and Murray's Tennessee regi
ments, and the 16th Mississippi regi
ment, under Col. Statham, together
with an Alabama regiment, (the 14th

It was at this critical moment thatI
our troops sueffered the meet. Side

the overwhelming force of the enemy.
Three times the spartanband charged
upon the united host of the vandals,
