Lieutenant Marshman, who was some miles south of Athens on Tuesday night, reports that one brigade was engaged in seizing horses and beef-cattle and sending them off through the mountains to Hood's army.

I have the honor to state, also, that every officer and man of this command did his whole duty. The only trouble I had with them was keeping them from going out and attacking the enemy at every point where they could hear of them.

I am also under great obligations to Colonel Byrd, First Tennessee Infantry; Lieutenant Coburn, First North Carolina; Lieutenant Hale, ---- Tennessee, and Mr. Williams, citizen scout, for important aid and assitance.

No casualties in this command.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

M. B. EWIN,

Lieutenant-Colonel Second Ohio Heavy Artillery.

No loss was sustained on our side.
