n raid at Big Creek Gap — Tennessee river--Federal outrages, &c. we get the following intelligence from the latest Tennessee papers received: The affair at Big Creek Gap The Knoxville Register, of the 18th instant, says: The accoun Our force was composed of 40 men belonging to Capt. Brown's cavalry, and 45 belonging to Capt. McClary's 1st regiment Tennessee cavalry. The Federal report is, one Confederate killed, five wounded, and seven captured, including the wounded. We lthe Lincolnites, and released on parole. He states that the Federal forces consisted of Colonel Carter's regiment of East Tennessee renegades, part of an Indiana regiment, and a cavalry battalion; these had left Cumberland Ford with four day's ratio force numbered fifteen hundred. The "Union" vandals at work. The Lincolnites are again at their deviltry in East Tennessee.

onfederate authorities are awake to the importance of it and the great want existing. Furthermore, the people may not be aware that at present we have not within our broad limits one rolling mill for the manufacture of boiler-plate iron, the importance of which is sufficiently obvious to the least interested in the various manufactures of iron. The last from which our supplies have hitherto been drawn, has fallen a prey to the flames and the destructive energies of the invader of the State of Tennessee; and now we have not on hand sufficient to render complete the repairs, after six months use, of the engines we already possess, or may hereafter build. I shall only add to the number of our wants that of wrought iron, so difficult at present to obtain, and the rails which the constant service of our roads are now subjected to will demand very soon. I have specified these, not to cause any despondence on the part of our people, but to prepare them for the urgency of governmental assi
Movements of the enemy in Tennessee--a hand-to-hand fight. [Special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.] Murfreesboro', Tenn., March 22. The Federal army is marching towards Columbus, Tenn. Small parties of the enemy occasionally show themselves near our lines. On the night of the 20th instant, a hand-to-hand fight took place in the neighborhood of Murfreesboro', between twelve Federal and one Confederate soldier. The Confederate killed nine and wounded three, and was himself slightly wounded in several places. The name of the man who performed this remarkable feat is O. Welts. J. H. J. [The foregoing dispatch looks like a Mechansenism. We give it as it was received, with the remark that a regiment of men like "O. Wells" would be more terrible than the whole of Lincoln's "grand army."]
This is all that those who wait will ever see. The very joy and exultation which the "successes" of the last few weeks have caused in the North, show hew little the promoters of this war really expect that absolute conquest which they promise. The capture of an earth-work on the Tennessee river, over if it be followed by the capture of the stronger neighboring fort upon the river Constantine, is only one of the first of a long series of military preparations for a campaign in Kentucky and Tennessee. If the invaders should obtain this success, its use will only be to enable them to feed the army which has advanced through Kentucky, and to keep it in working order for operating on a theatre five hundred miles distant from the opposing armies on the Potomac. A year of successes would only give them military possession of two States which were never among the most zealous in the Southern cause. As to the descents upon the coast, they are annoyances rather than wounds. They are bu
