Free Wise's lesson. --We have authentic intelligence from Wise's Legion, in a letter dated Hawk's Nest, September 5. On the Sunday previous, at an early hour, General Wise marched, in obedience to orders, in the direction of General Floyd's camp, ten miles north of Hawk's Nest. When very near the camp of General E., he was ordered to countermarch, which he promptly obeyed. On Monday morning, the main body of General Wise's command advanced upon the enemy, who were found strongly entrenched in the gorge of a mountain some four miles from Gauley Bridge. General Wise led the advance guard, and, on receiving their fire, charged upon the cowardly miscreants as they took to their heels and fled from the shots of our gallant boys. Two of our men were slightly wounded. As it was dark, we could not tell what the result was on the enemy's side. Our correspondent continues. The Legion except upon their arms on Monday night. Early, on Tuesday a 12-pounder howitzer was seut forwa
A Reinforcement. --Col. Clark's regiment of North Carolina volunteers passed through Lewisburg a few days ago on the way to join Floyd's Brigade. The Greenbrier Era says. "We have seen no corps so handsomely and comfortably equipped during the war, and none whose warlike and manly bearing gave better promise of efficient service in the field. We tender them a cordial welcome to the mountains of Old Virginia, and doubt not they will receive the same at the hands of Gen. Floyd, as a most regiment of North Carolina volunteers passed through Lewisburg a few days ago on the way to join Floyd's Brigade. The Greenbrier Era says. "We have seen no corps so handsomely and comfortably equipped during the war, and none whose warlike and manly bearing gave better promise of efficient service in the field. We tender them a cordial welcome to the mountains of Old Virginia, and doubt not they will receive the same at the hands of Gen. Floyd, as a most valuable acquisition to his brigade."
rted in some of the papers that Tatewell has furnished her quota of volunteers. This is a slight mistake; when she shall have sent off the present (8th company) she will very nigh have performed her part.--I may say that Tazewell stands first in Floyd's brigade; and not second in furnishing volunteers from Southwestern Virginia. She has only eight companies attacked to the brigade mentioned: Crops of all kinds were never better throughout the Southwest. Enough has been raised to supply unties — viz: Tazewell, McDowell and Buchanan — to assemble at this place on Friday next, to rendezvous immediately at Wyoming Court-House, there to await the orders of Maj. Gen. Chapman. It would not be amiss to state that Gen. Bowen was with Gen. Floyd in the battle at Cross Lanes and there done his county some service. He will lead the militia from this county, and I am not boasting when I say they are proud of such a leader. Ex-Governor McMullen visited our county during our recent Ci
