The enemy moved from Blacksburg on the 12th, and went to Newport, Giles county. Gen. Crook had twelve regiments of infantry, ten pieces of artillery, and, according to a Yankee prisoner, one brigade of cavalry, which joined him since the battle of Cloyd's Farm. This prisoner states that Averill left Charleston seventeen days ago, with four brigades of cavalry; that on reaching Logan C. H. he detached one brigade to join Crook; with the three remaining brigades he moved on and met Gen. W. E. Jones, six miles from Wytheville, on Tuesday, and, after a severe fight, fell back. A later dispatch dated Christiansburg, Saturday, states that the enemy has gone in the direction of Monroe county. The commands of French and Jackson intercepted Averill's command near Newport, and scattered it in the mountains. The main body under Crook, would reach Greenbrier on Saturday. Little damage has been done to the railroad, except at New river bridge.--The lead mines and salt works are safe.
