Twenty-five men of the detachment detailed from the Hadison (La.) Infantry, marched ahead of the prisoners, the rear being brought up by twenty-five men of the Natchez (Miss.) Rifles.
The party embarked in three cars specially provided for their accommodation, each car being guarded by fifteen Southern soldiers, very fully armed.--Richmond Examiner, Sept. 11.
A battle took place about three o'clock this afternoon, near Summersville, Va. General Rosecrans, after making a reconnoissance, found General Floyd's army--five thousand strong, with sixteen field-pieces — intrenched in a powerful position, on the top of a mountain at Carnifex Ferry, on the west side of Gauley River.
The rear and extreme of both flanks were inacessible.
The front was masked with heavy forests and a close jungle.
