A gallant band of fifty Buckeyes, Third Ohio Regiment, under Capt. O. A. Lawson, of Columbus, made a good record yesterday afternoon, at Midden to flee to the woods for safety, and had pillaged their houses. Lawson scaled a rough mountain and crossed Middle-Fork in the morning, two party recrossed the stream a mile and a half above the bridge. Capt. Lawson brought away the musket of the dead soldier, but was unable to core deliberate. An Irishman in the party says it was hot as hell. Lawson says his men behaved splendidly; not a man flinched, and they obeyeof the men received scratches, and had their clothing riddled. Captain Lawson says Mr. Miller, of Worthington, was the coolest and pluckiest ht to the hospital in wagons this morning, and are comfortable. Capt. Lawson and his men are confident that some were killed on the bridge. with the gallantry of the men, but severely censures the expedition. Lawson gives valuable information about the topography of Middle-Fork.
