Forty-first Tennessee, 2; wounded, 7. In the First Tennessee Battalion, killed, 3; wounded, 9. In the FIFTIETH Tennessee, killed, 4; wounded, 8. In the Tenth and Thirtieth Tennessee (consolidated), killed, 15; wounded, 59. In the Seventh Texas, killed, 22; wounded, 66. In the THIRD Tennessee, killed, 27; wounded, 90.

It will be seen that the THIRD Tennessee and Seventh Texas were in the most trying part of the engagement. Prisoners taken by the enemy and escaped to us report the enemy's loss at 150 killed and 400 wounded. I consider their statements reliable.

Our aggregate engaged was 2,500. I have ascertained that the enemy had in the field three DIVISIONS, but the DIVISION commanded by Major-General Logan was the one particularly engaged.

My command was encamped for the night, together with 1,000 men brought up by Brigadier General W. H. T. Walker, 5 miles from the battle-field.

Very respectfully,

JOHN GREGG,

Brigadier-General, Commanding Brigade.

Major R. W. MEMMINGER, Assistant Adjutant-General.

I submit the following report of the part taken by the THIRD Tennessee Regiment in the battle near Raymond, MISS., May 12:
