Fourth Dispatch

NASHVILLE, Jan. 3. – Colonel McKee is reported killed. Our Loss of officers is heartrending. The battle closed last night with terrible slaughter to the enemy. The first day’s fighting was all our own way; but the right wing fought itself into a bad position. On the Third day we repulsed the enemy with terrible slaughter, and with but slight loss on our side.
