ed. They were sent on a scout, led by Corporal D. B. Hay, one of their number. They boldly attacked forty-one mounted insurgents, killing eight of them, chasing the remainder two miles, and capturing seventeen of their horses. The leader of the scouts was severely wounded, but was saved. On their way back, they were attacked by seventy-five mounted men of the command of the afterward famous Ashby, near the mouth of Patterson's Creek. They fell back across a portion of the stream to Kelley's Island, at the mouth of the creek, where; they had a terrible hand-to-hand fight with their assailants, that ceased only with the daylight.

The fight at Kelley's Island.interesting particulars.death of Capt. Richard Ashby. We copy the following interesting particulars of the skirmish which took place at Kelley's Island, near RomneyKelley's Island, near Romney, on Saturday, the 29th ult., from the Winchester Republican.--It is with much regret that we find in the postscript attached, the announcement of the death of that gallant here, Capt. Richard Ashby,is command, and proceeded in the direction of the Depot.
