--The following is a reliable account of the recent skirmish near Paducah, about which the Northern journals have been glorifying themselves: On Wednesday morning last, Lieutenant-Colonel Logwood, accompanied by a detachment of Captain Ballentine's company, left the camp at Columbus and proceeded towards Paducah. About ten o'clock the same night the company dismounted, and, leaving their horses, proceeded on foot through the woods to within two miles of Paducah, where there was a Fough the woods to within two miles of Paducah, where there was a Federal Picket composed of six dragoons, four of whom were shot and two taken prisoners. During the firing Mr. James C. Fleming, of the Memphis Light Dragoons, and John Gallagher, of Capt. Ballentine's company, who had become separated from their companions, were shot before they were recognized. Dr. Holmes was shot and wounded by the Federals. Gallagher was killed almost instantly. Holmes and Fleming will probably recover.
