horses and 16 mules, and I also found and delivered to the brigade commander 5 prisoners, one a purveyor of commissary stores, in the employ of the rebel Government; 1 a rebel prisoner, paroled at Perryville, but never exchanged, and the other 3 citizens, all under suspicious circumstances. I could learn nothing of any enemy in force.

APRIL 5, 1863.-Skirmish at Davis' Mill, Tenn.

Report of Major General Gordon Granger, U. S. Army.

FRANKLIN, TENN., April 5, 1863-10.40 a. m.

GENERAL: The rebels attempted to surround a company on picket at Davis'Mill at daylight this morning. All escaped and have got in except 8. Our men report the strength of rebels at about 3,000; that they moved on the north. Nothing has molested Brentwood up to this moment, which leads me to believe that it was only an expedition sent out to capture the company at Davis' Mill, and get back to their main body as quickly as possible. At Brentwood and this place all is ready. Have you any news?

Very respectfully,

G. GRANGER,

Major-General.

General W. S. ROSECRANS.
