Caiho, July 22. The Memphis Bulletin of the

Forrist's command, who took the oath of am
Btsty, and Immediately left for his home in Ken
tueky. lie reports that General S. D. Lee com
mands General Folk's old department, and thut
Richardson has been superseded by Nealy,
Richardson having been charged with making
two millions out of the conscription business,
Richardson escaped punishment, and is now liv
ing In Western Tennessee.
Allen col firm 8 the rcportod wounding of For

at Guntown with sturgis, and Colonel Whilom
was umong the killed. Tbe most of tho loss is
attributed to tue aospeiuto fighting or our
negroes, nearly all their victims being shot
through the head and breast.
Major Bradford, captured at I'ort I'lllow, has
bten ordered lo 1 shot by I'orreat fur violating
bit parole.
, Allen knew nothing of tho Tresldcnt's amnesty

Tbe Sou'huru people think that if Lee and

This plan will be successfully executed if tho
Confederate authorities do not dcvlso a method
of defending the roads. It is useless to resist,
if the cavalry can ri le in about the time the work
is completed aud undo it 111 a ciiiinle of hours.

ibe roads by other ineaus than the single met hod

proven utterly and iuvariuhly iudlVtual there
has not been a solitary exception in the course of

The single method yet Imagined or tried is, to
Fend our Confederate cavalry in pursuit of tho

lioussiau, comnnuiding the district of Nashvilie,
pioposed 10 (iencial On-nt a conceited iuom

had obtained a great deal of v-vluaM" lul'or.outio.i
icgitrding the louto and tho vulnerability of
Sclmn, and was anxious to make tlio movement.
Hut us the raid of Genera) Micrmun was iusti-
tuttd only lor the purpose of so thoron 'lily de
stroy irg ti e MistdsHippi railroads that no exten
sive Ion e of llebel iniantry couhl operate against
the points on tho Mississippi river, which u was
ir,t titled to weaken iu order to prosecute the
preterit campaign, and did not contemplate the
occupation of Selma, General llousscau's propj
sitit u was declined.
Ijitely, however, General Sherman, foe-xuning
desirous of the dt struct on of the railroad bo
tweeu Mt ntgoiiiery, Ala., and Columbus, Oa.,
ordciid General Rousseau, June ;i, to make
(reparations for a raid upon the road between
the points named ; and this raid, as ordered, is
the one upon which General Housscau departed
last evening. 1 he t ole purpose or the raid Is. as
bt foie staled, the destruction of the railroad.
1 his is to fie done so eilectually as to cut off
for the rest of the w ar the line bv which the Rebels
get their snppliosof beef, Ac. Orders were given
and preparations made for the destruction of the
rails I y twisting and burning them with the tics,
bnr)gs, water tanks, Ac; tho blowing up of
culverts, locomotives, machine and Oovorninont
shops, arsenals, fVc.
orders were ulso given for the destruction of
Opt-liku, the point at which the C lumbus road
diverges from the Atlanta, West 1'olnt, and Mont
gomiry road. Hy the complete destruction of
this point General Sherman hopes to cut off
Montgomery fiom comuiunlratiou by both routes
with the east.
General Uoussean boors to Irretrievably de
stroy Ibe railroads Irom Montgomery to Colum

gteatcr part of the Rvbel government property iti

principal points along his route.

having on the 4th instant received the final orders
to moe, General Rousseau and stall left head

The party left with tbe idea that they might
bind in a Southern prison, but congratulated
thmselves that Grant had cut otf tlio route to
Libby. With this view of a arisou lu their minds,
tbe party mude nil preparations for a Southern
residmcc, and quite an amusing scene was wit

General Sherniun's order for tho ruld restricted
the force 10 about two thousand five hundred.
The men arc all veterans, recruits of the regi-
inots hav Ing been left Itehind. General Hons
erau and Colonel llsrrlson left very confident of
success. Hotb am fighting, energetic men. and
if sueee'i is possible they will accsmnlisli the
task laid out for them.
1 bo route to lie taken hy General Houssian is
one that bus never been followed bcretolore
during tbe war, though it is nearly Identical with
tho "truce pursued bv General .lacksou In Ibe
war against the Creek Indians. The first point
of any importance on the routo is Htonutsville,
the next Asiivllle. A few miles bjyoud Ashrllle
is the Coosa 1 iver.
General Sherman first directed Rousseau to
make the crossing at Ten Islands, but subse
quently this was changed so as to allow him to
cios at the nearest lord, lie Is thou to move
rapidly up the Talladega aud the nearest bralgo
or ford over the Tallupomu river. The route
betwt i n these two streams is to be very rapidly
pursued, and tbe bridges are to be completely

Returning aitcr the destruction of these rotids,
Koutoi au is to move up the west sideol the Chat
tahoochee, if the opportunity oilers, and join
General bhennun between Marietta and the Chat
tahoochee river. If this route is threatened by
tho enemy, Rousseau is to make straight for I'en
tacola, and take vessels to New Orleans and
thence to Nashville again.
In bis orders General Micimaii alludes to
Montgomery, Opeliku, ond Columbus, as being
the impoitunt points ; but I do not know that in
sti uctions were given him to attack cither Mont
gomery or Columbns.
Orders wi re issued for the destruction of
0K lika. Sclma is alluded to in the orders as a
point of secondary importance.

having played the mischief generally with
Iho Rebel communications with Atlanta.
Tho Rebel General John 1). Hood, heretofore
only a division commander, took command of
tbe Rebel army in Gtorgia on the ISth. Ho
owed his appointment over Hardee and others
to tbe fact tbat be alone of Johnston's captains
bus been fiercely opposed to Johnston's retro
