Having seen so many exaggerated reports of our defence against the band of thieves headed by John Morgan, who made an attack upon our little band of patriots last Thursday, with a force of six to one, I feel somewhat disposed to make a few corrections. As I was pr Capt. W. S. Wilson, and Capt. McClintock. Up to this time we have found twenty-seven Federals dead and nineteen rebels. The next day succeeding the battle, Morgan, with his band of yelling hounds, left this place, bound southward to Paris, bearing away the majority of his wounded. He left eighteen in care of our surgeons, to report to Lieut.-Col. Landrum, Cynthiana, where we arrived at nine A. M., Wednesday. At four P.

It is but justice to the Ohio troops, to inform you that they were eager and ready for the fight. Two companies of the Cinci

To His Excellency Andrew Johnson: Governor: On the fifth and sixth instant, De Courcey's brigade, with the Fourteenth Kentucky, had a series of brilliant affairs with Stevenson's division in entire force.

We captured two hundred wagon-loae hundred pounds of tobacco, and thirty horses and mules. We lost three killed, fifteen wounded, and fifty prisoners. Two companies of the Sixteenth Ohio were surrounded by the rebel regiments, but two thirds of them cut their way through. John Morgan, at the head of two thousand cavalry, left Knoxville for Kingston about the second instant. It is rumored that Kentucky is to be invaded. Geo. W. Morgan, Brigadier-General.
