From Kentucky. fight with Gen. Zollicoffer--the enemy Advancing — News from Sandy, Ky.--necessity of preparation, &c. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Tazewell C. H., Va., Oct. 28, 1861. The following items of news I gather from M. L. Comann, who has just returned from Gen. Zollicoffer's camp, in Laurel county, Ky., some 65 miles from Cumberland Gap.--Gen. Zollicoffer took up his line of march from Cumberland Ford, on the 15th inst., and proceeded in the direction of Crab Orchard. During this march he had frequent skirmishes with the Union men on the road, who concealed themselves in brush on the road side. From the 15th to the 20th he lost some three or four men, and some two or three horses, killed by these Union-loving people. On Sunday, the 20th inst., the General came to a halt, finding the road completely blockaded by the falling timber. He sent out scouts, who reported the enemy, some three or four thousand strong, in their breastworks, som
From Suffolk. the First South Carolina Regiment--the Apprehended attack on old Point — religious affairs, &c., &c. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Suffolk, Va., Oct. 28, 1861. The 1st South Carolina regiment is stationed here, and Col. Gregg is regarded by all a very superior officer and a most excellent disciplinarian. When the foe comes he, and those under his command, will be found ready. Considerable excitement has prevailed in this place, and the country surrounding, for several weeks, in expectation of an attack from the enemy at Old Point. The number of war steamers, gunboats and barges continue to increase; but up to this time it is unknown at what point they are to operate.--Many suppose the attack will be in the vicinity of Smith field, or Burwell's Bay, with a view of getting possession of the Seaboard and Norfolk and Petersburg Railroads at or near this town. The future must reveal their intentions. The Christian Conference i
A Hint to our soldiers from the ladies' Mt. Laurel, Halifax county, October 28th, 1861. Editors Dispatch: I have spent this afternoon visiting with some ladies. Their principal topic of conversation has been sewing societies — soldier's clothes — socks for the soldiers — how the scarcity of wool is to be remedied, &c. Finally, one remarked that Miss--, of Charlotte, besides other work, had promised to furnish fifty pairs of socks. She then exclaimed, "If we could only get the soldiers to save the legs of their old socks, we could make the wool go much farther. They could send them to the committee at Richmond, whence the socks could be distributed through the country, just as they do clothing to be made up. We could then foot them, and send them back to Richmond." Like most ladies, when they have a benevolent scheme in view, she was not wanting in a plan to accomplish it, as she immediately added, "It would be a good plan to get some one to write a piece about it fo<
