The Boston Evening Gazette reports on action near Tullahoma.


Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, with 7,000 men, advances to the Obion River. Part of his command captures Union City while Forrest himself leads others to Paducah, Kentucky, a large part of which he will leave in ruins.


“The Yankees look upon the Rebellion as having all its legs now broken all to pieces—its backbone which has been cut in two—‘chawed up’ and otherwise demolished … is not annihilated, & the whole Confederacy like an over-ripe pear, falling to pieces of its own inherent weakness is about to precipitate itself piece- meal into the victorious arms of Sherman and Grant.” [Lucy V. French journal]
