The mass of the enemy escaped through the woods,ners is Dr. Taylor, formerly of the army. Col. Pegram was in command. Colonel Rosecrans's column left camp yesterday morning, and marched some eight miles throug that the enemy had retreated. I am now pushing on to Beverly, a part of Colonel Rosecrans's troops being now within three miles of it. Our success is complete, 861. The following is the statement of Mr. David L. Hart, the guide to General Rosecrans' column at the battle, which was fought on his father's farm: I was with General Rosecrans as guide at the battle of Rich Mountain. The enemy--four thousand strong — were strongly intrenched at the foot of the mountain on the west sidnch outside. General McClellan, after reconnoitring their position, sent General Rosecrans with the Eighth, Tenth, and Fifteenth Indiana Regiments, the Nineteenth O
nchment. The lower fort was surrounded by dense woods, for a mile in all directions. After ascertaining its position and strength, Gen. McClellan early sent Gen. Rosecrans, with the Eighth and Tenth Indiana Regiments, with the Nineteenth Ohio, to go around along the top of the mountain, to get upon the east side of the intrenchments, so as to surround the enemy. After going nine miles, through woods and over rocks, a march which Col. Lander, who was along, says is without an equal. Gen. Rosecrans came out upon the intrenchments at the top of the hill. They received a fire from the two guns, (six-pounders,) which killed one man and wounded several. Imrobably when the woods are searched the number will be increased. Our loss was very small, comparatively, not more than twenty or twenty-five being killed. General Rosecrans remained on the ground. His victory, however, was not known to Gen. McClellan, who heard the noise of the firing, but was in ignorance of the result. Durin

Doc. 197 1/2.-treason of the newspapers. General W. S. Rosecrans, commanding the Army of Occupation in Western Virginia, in a General Order, bearing date the 20th inst., invites the aid of the s which are constantly enjoyed by the rebels, whose press never appears to betray them. General Rosecrans is an humorist. He invites the tongue of rumor, the trumpet of common fame, the very emboes? How can we? Are we not vox preterea nihil? Take away the voice, and what remains? General Rosecrans invites. It is time he did something more than invite. He and his superiors and predecessmfort to the enemy has been going on, not only unrebuked, but encouraged and applauded. General Rosecrans closes his order with a pregnant fact. They do these things differently in secessiondom. n which they are engaged. Their press never appears to betray them. betray is the word.
