dear sir: A few days ago I learned that General Marshall had ordered the militia of Wise, Scott, and Lee Counties to muster on the 15th instant, with six days provisions, and aid in guarding the mountain passes at the Cumberland and Pound Gaps. In order to prevent a concentration of forces at the latter place I left here on the 14th instant, with a detachment of infantry from the Fortieth Ohio, under Colonel Cranor; the Forty-second, under Major Pardee; the Twenty-second Kentucky, under Major Cook, amounting in all to 600, and 100 cavalry, under Major McLaughlin, and, packing a few days' provisions on mules, proceeded up the Big Sandy, and reached the foot of the Cumberland Mountains a few miles below Pound Gap in the night of the 15th. A force of 500 Virginia troops, under the command of Maj. J. B. Thompson, held the Gap, and had built a strong breastwork on the summit of the mountain, and had also obstructed the road on the Kentucky side by felling heavy trees across it. Earl
a small infantry force for their support. Just at this moment the advance of Major-General Buell's column (a part of the division under General Nelson) arrived, the two generals named both being present. An advance was immediately made upon the point of attack and the enemy soon driven back. In this repulse much is due to the presence of the gunboats Tyler and Lexington, and their able commanders, Captains Gwin and Shirk. During the night the divisions under Generals Crittenden and Mc-Cook arrived. General Lewis Wallace, at Crump's Landing, 6 miles below, was ordered at an early hour in the morning to hold his division in readiness to be moved in any direction to which it might be ordered. At about 11 o'clock the order was delivered to move it up to Pittsburg, but owing to its being led by a circuitous route did not arrive in time to take part in Sunday's action. During the night all was quiet, and feeling that a great moral advantage would be gained by becoming the attac

ing. April 29 advanced about 1 mile on the main Corinth road and bivouacked for the night. On the 30th advanced 3 miles, and encamped in rear of General Mc-Cook and near General Buell's headquarters. A detail of 40 men was ordered from the brigade by Captain Starling, to construct a road to the front to connect with Generlry. I told him that I had been sent to relieve Major Foster, which I was ready to do. He then ordered me to station vedettes to connect with those of General Mc-Cook, and extend across to the Purdy road. Accordingly I immediately took Company F and went back across the swale to the north side ol that open field, and there statent, and for the coolness and courage he displayed on this occasion, as to him is mainly due the manner of posting the skirmishers. Much praise is also due to Captain Cook, Lieutenants Martin, Stuebing, Bontecou, Bell, and Huber for their gallant conduct, and to Dr. Cox for his timely services in relieving the wounded. Office
trong line of infantry still to our front, which was well executed by the Rangers. I rallied and reformed them on the ground where the charge was begun, but the enemy did not ad vance. Shortly afterward I was ordered by General Breckinridge to the rear of his infantry and artillery. I suppose 40 or 50 of the enemy were killed on the ground and doubtless many more were wounded. We captured 43 prisoners. My loss was 2 killed (Champion and Earnest) and 7 wounded, among them Captain [G.] Cook, Lieutenants [H. E.] Storey and Gordon; none mortally. Private Ash is missing. I cannot state the loss of the companies co-operating with me. Colonel Forrest, I learn, was slightly wounded. The Rangers acted throughout the affair with admirable coolness and courage. 1 cannot say more than that they fully sustained the ancient fame of the name they bear; they could not do more. I cannot discriminate between them, because each one displayed a heroism worthy of the cause we are engage
