APRIL 26, Correspondence LaNDINQ, TlNN April 16, 1862. , j Editors Democrat Gentlemen : Nothing has transpired 9inoe the great battle of but proves at least interesting to thoee who have friends that were engaged in that great fight. Every day Bines that eventful Mondsy, General Bucll has sent out parties to reoennoiter, aod every day brings us the same news from tho enemy's lines that they have not yet recovered from the awful shook of the 7th. Last Saturday night General Fry, with the Tenth Indiana, Tenth Kentucky, Fourteenth Ohio and Fourth Kentuoky, by General Sherman and two companies of cavalry, with the gunboats Lexington and Tylor, proceeded Hp the Tennessee river to cut off the enemy's retreat on the Memphis and Charleston railroad The expedition landed at Chiok asaw, and leaving the gunboats prooeeded inland about thirteen miles, immediately iu the rear of and about thirteen miles from Corinth, where they met the rebel pickets, who immediately skedaddled, only tiring one volley. The party immediately burned the bridge and some trestle work over the creek, amounting to about 800 feel. Just as the limbers gave way, our troops discovered a railroad train with reinforcements for the rebels. But seeing there was no means of oropsing the stream, the engineer reversed his ecgine and took the back traok in "druble quick." Yesterday, a large party left our camp to reconnoiter the enemy's works-ilront of Corinth. The expedition consisted of four regiments of oavairy and two of infant ry, under the direction of General Buell. When about Dine milen from our advanoe, they discovered a large body of rebels, when a spirited skirmish ensued, the rebels running into the main budy. We had twu men killed and one or two slightly wounded. We also capturc-200 prisoners. Tho expedition having carried out their instructions, returned to camp enthusiastic over their sucoess. Ah I write, the river in front of our oamp is tilled wit', burnt bridge timber, supposed to be the bridge over the Tennessee at Florence. Whether it was burned by the rebels or Gen Mitchell is not yet certain How proud the Louisvillians should feel at the conduct of their "Legion;" and how proud should they feel of the man that was at the head of that brigade on the 7th. Gen. Rousseau is spoken of by everybody, and his "Legion" have the freedom of every camp. But as Louisville should be proud of her troops, so should Kentuoky, as a State, be praod of her achievements on that day. That Kentucky won the battle no one can doubt. It was her troops that drove back Beauregard when the defeat of the troops of her sister States was almost certain. Let me not be understood as insinuating that the troops from other States did not do their duty. Men could not have fought better, but they were overpowered by numbers. To speak of the individual deeds of daring duriDg the progress of the fight would take too muoh if your space ; but let me i elate an inoident told me by gentlemen of the Sixth Ohio. One of our Kentuoky cavalrymen, on the day of the fight, being sent to the river on some business, was astonished to see five or six thousand soldiirs M ljing around loose." M What the heil are you doing here ?" said the private. The men replied that they had no officers to lead them. The cavalryman then told them he would lead all that had the courage to follow him. In a short time he had about 600 formed into companies, placed them under sergeants and corporals, and, himself acting as Colonel, led them into the fight. Being plaocd near the Sixth Obio, the boys of that regiment bad opportunities of witnessing the manner ia which, this private Colonel behaved. They all say he acted like a veteran, charging the euemy at every opportunity. He was heard to exclaim that he was doing d i well, as over one hundred of his men were wounded. His name, I think, would be mentioned in the reports cf a Colonel and Brigadier, if it could bs ascertained. The body of Gov. G W. Johnson has been sent to his friends ia Paduoab, and those of A. Sidney Johnston and Thomas Monroe lie where they were first buried on the battle Shi-lo- in his annual message, and as many of the most prominent men of Kentuoky, ae well as Virginia, have taken a deep interest in this young Republic, I have thought that your readers would be interested in the views of Henry Clay, as expressed to myself more than ten years since, showing his oontinued and deep interest in the subject nearly up to the time of his death. I therefore inolose herewith two letters, addressed to me by Mr. Clay, in 1851, which you are at liberty to publish. I have also sent copies of the same by th,'. mail to the Louisville Journal. These letters have never been published. Yours, very respectfully, Benjamin Coatis. Hal-lee- MORNING, From Pittsburg Landing. Philadelphia, April 22, 1862.
