sions can be stored in quantity, would enable the troops that could be kept out in the field, to scour the country thoroughly, as far as the banks of the Ohio, and render it utterly untenable by the enemy. Western Virginia can furnish ample troops and competent officers of her own for this purpose; and the sooner this plan of defence is resorted to, the better. An Inspection of the forces here took place yesterday, and I am confident that the report of the inspecting officer will be such as will much gratify and most agreeably surprise the Government. A spy reached here yesterday and reported to the General that all the regiments, except two, of the enemy on the Kanawha had gone down the river in boats and gone off. These two regiments, and about three hundred troops at Fayette Court-House, are now all that are left of Rosencranz's army of fourteen thousand in the Kanawha Valley. The roads East of Fayette Court- House are almost impassable on horseback. Yours, C. S. A.
