troops on shore. The flotilla had a narrow escape, as the Potomac, upon observing the fire at Wilson's camp, got under way, and was towed by the McClellan just within shelling distance as the rebels got their steamers afloat, and left the island for the navy-yard. Two false alarms had been given on the previous night, or, Colonel Brown was heard to say, he would, instead of thirty men, have ordered out a sufficient force at once to have given a greater defeat to the rebels.--N. Y. Times, October 27. Augusta Constitutionalist account. camp Stevens, Pensacola, Fla., Oct. 9, 1861. At length we have had an opportunity of being relieved from a state of masterly inactivity, and of measuring arms with the enemy near this place. During last night an expedition, composed of detachments of several Confederate companies and regiments, set out for Santa Rosa Island for the purpose of breaking up the encampment of the notorious Billy Wilson and his celebrated Zouaves, who had taken a
und, using a tin plate as a writing desk; and as I left my writing fixings and paper at our last camp, I took the liberty of drawing a few leaves from an old account book belonging to a departed secessionist; and, as you see by the appearance of the manuscript, the pencil I am using is not equal to Faber's best quality. Our adjutant says he will have this conveyed to you at the earliest possible moment, which may be soon and may be several days. G. E. M. The Cincinnati Commercial of Oct. 27th, presents the subjoined account: Capt. James Laughlin, of Company B, First O. V. C., returned yesterday from the expedition to Western Kentucky. He had been detailed to act as an escort for Capt. Konkles' battery, and his orders were to see the battery safe into General Nelson's command, and then to return, unless wanted for special service for a day or two. Capt. Laughlin has expected to serve as the body guard of Gen. Mitchell, under the anticipation that Gen. M. would take command
to be overtaken by our own, while his infantry effected their escape by scattering in the woods, and over the mountain sides, thus precluding the possibility of capture by troops so exhausted as were ours, after the fatigues of a battle, preceded by those of a long march of twenty-five miles. The enemy's loss cannot be definitely ascertained, though it is known to have been considerably larger than our own. A rebel account. A letter in the Richmond Enquirer, dated Winchester, Va., Oct. 27, gives the rebel account of the skirmish at Romney on the 26th. The writer says the fight was between four hundred Confederates, and a Federal force variously estimated at from three thousand to five thousand. He continues: Our little force was obliged to retreat before superior numbers. The fight commenced three or four miles from Romney, whither our troops had gone to meet the enemy. After fighting some time, it was found that they could not keep back the Federals, and a retreat t
ly tendered his services as aid to Colonel Burbridge, and rendered most efficient service in the attack upon the pickets, in capturing the ferry, crossing the men and artillery over, and charging up the hill to the enemy's encampment. He was constantly exposed to the greatest danger, evinced the skill and coolness of an experienced general; and I am happy to say his services are most highly appreciated by the officers in command. Minnie. Louisville Democrat account. On Sunday last, (Oct. 27,) Col. Burbridge, who is in command at Owensboro, received a call from Colonel McHenry, at or near Morgantown, for help, as he anticipated an attack by a heavy force of the enemy. That same evening, Col. Burbridge left Owensboro with two hundred and fifty or three hundred men, and two cannon — about one hundred of his men being cavalry from Colonel Jackson's regiment; the rest was infantry, with their supplies in their knapsacks. This little band made a forced march to the bank of the riv
w for a supply, as well as provisions, stores, &c., for when I left I did not bargain for this blockade. The Sumter seems in good condition. The consul informs me she has one hundred and twenty men. She does not certainly appear to be in the disorganized state in which late accounts have represented her. She has latterly captured but two American vessels--one the brig Joseph Parke, of Boston, on the 25th of September; the other the schooner Daniel Trowbridge, of New Haven, on the 27th of October. She has landed here fourteen prisoners on their parole. Three of the Joseph Parke's men (all foreigners) joined the Sumter. I regret to give the government so long and unsatisfactory a letter, but must avail myself of the opportunity for St. Thomas, which offers to-morrow. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, James S. Palmer, Commander. To Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy, Washington, D. C. P.
