Tho officials at Washington are enthusiastic with praise of the gal lant regiment. Said the adjutant general: "That regiment disem barking and delaying indefinitely its return for the men could not kuow what would happi-u when once in action .again, is one of the finest feats of the war. Words fail me to express my admiration lor the men of the First Tennessee. ts record has been a glorious one, and as long as the -country exists Tennessee will feel a pride in the spirit which governs and has gov erned the men of the First Tennes see since the beginning of the war."
