red before Gen. Wise in large force, Gen. Lee went to his succor with four of Gen. Floyd's regiments, which leaves the letter with a very small force. Hence you see the accessity of rapid reinforcements. P. S.--Gen. Wise was fighting yesterday, but with what success is not learned. Gen. Lee had brought with him from Huntersville no troops, and was attended only by an escort of twenty men and three baggage wagons. Meadow Bluff is a strong position, commanding the approach to Lewisburg, whether by the main turnpike road from Ganley Bridge or the Wilderness road from Summersville, or the road from Bowyer's ferry on New River. At this point General Floyd is stationed with what of his command is left after the four regiments taken forward by General Lee, and is very strongly fortified. General Wise is west of Meadow Bluff, fifteen miles, on Sewell mountain, in a very strong position. The four regiments taken up to him by Gen. Lee will increase our force there to abou

It is a curious fact that not one drop of liquor has been in our camp since we left Lewisburg, nearly two months ago. Not even the officers have it. This is no compliment to our temperance propensities, but the result of circumstances which we cannot control. There is not a drop of liquor at public or private house between Lewisburg anLewisburg and Ganley river. Their supplies have heretofore come from Ohio, and that channel of trade is now entirely cut off. We reached Meadow Bluff safely about 10 o'clock on the morning of the 18th, and, pitching our tents, proceeded at once to prepare for a warm reception of the enemy.--Gen. Floyd is unremitting in his attention to the affairs of his army. He does a vast deal of the labor himself, and leaves as little to his subordinates as possible. He inspects everything, and never leaves for
you can use as you see fit: Gen. Wise is fortified a little this side of the top of Sewell Mountain. His position is a very strong one, commanding all approaches. Gen. Floyd has entrenched himself at Meadow Bluff, 15½ miles West of Lewisburg, and some eight miles, I think, east of Gen. Wise. The North Carolina and Georgia regiments which were on their way to join him, but which had not arrived when he so gallantly three times repulsed a greatly superior force, have since then streof its movement, and the close order of the men, and the absence of stragglers, indicate much more than ordinary discipline. Generals Floyd and Wise, according to common report in town, have both declared that before Rosencranz shall enter Lewisburg they will die opposing him. There is a variety of rumors constantly on the wing in regard to the movements of Rosencranz. Some say that the has been near to General Wise and has retired to Dogwood Gap — others that he is slowly approachin
