A reconnoitring party, under General A. J. Smith, left Pittsburgh this morning and attacked the rebel pickets, one hundred and fifty strong, who fled in great haste, leaving knapsacks, blankets, and everything else.

At that date Morgan received permission to retrace his march, capture Lexington, which was, of course, in the hands of the enemy, and then move southward, directly across Buell's rear, doing the latter all possible damage. Marching rapidly for twenty-four hours, he reached Lexington at dawn of the following morning, and immediately attacked the 4th Ohio Cavalry, which was encamped at Ashland — once the residence of Henry Clay — about two miles from the city. The enemy was defeated after a short combat, and nearly six hundred were made prisoners. The loss in killed and wounded on either side was slight. Resuming his march at noon that day, Morgan encamped on the following night at Shryock's ferry on the Kentucky River. At midnight he was attacked by Dumont, and fearing that he would be surrounded and entrapped in the rugged hills of that region, he marched with all speed for

McClellan held a conference with several omin at Western army officers, at which he presented the following plan, which was enthusiastically approved of and agreed to by all present, namely: to organize, out of the troops now ready for the field in Ohio, Indiana, and the North western States, two columns of 20,000 each, one to rendezvous at Ashland, Ky., and the other at Gallipolis, Ohio, both on the Ohio river, and both accessible by railroads. To march the first column across the western counties of Virginia to the nearest point on the Virginia and Tennessee railroad; probably at Abingdon, and to march the second column along the valley of the Kanawha river, either to Covington or Newborn. The marching distance for either column would not be over one hundred or one hundred and fifty miles, and could easily be accomplished in a we

t was adopted. Resolutions were introduced and referred, denouncing the Provisional Government movement, declaring it treason, and instructing Gov. Magoffin to issue his proclamation warning the people against assisting it, and requiring those already engaged in carrying it on to disband and desist from their purposes. A bill authorizing a majority of the stockholders of the People's Bank to remove the bank from Bowling Green to Louisville, passed. A bill allowing the Bank of Ashland to issue notes of a less denomination than five dollars, passed. We take the following proceedings of the Kentucky Legislature of the 3d inst., from the Cincinnati Commercial, of the 5th of December.
