Athens county has reason to be proud of this gentleman who so nobly rallied the 53rd after the singular conduct of COL. APPLER in ordering it to retreat, and then himself leaving it to its fate and flying to the river. Col. FULTON fought bravely dring both Sunday and Monday commanding the 53rd during the whole time.
