use and 6 horse wagons were captured from the Federal, containing, as estimated by our Quartermaster, ten days rations for our forces, one barrel of wine and one of alcohol. Our men intercepted a dispatch from the Federal to their headquarters, saying that they had then only three days rations and wanted a reinforcement of six regiments, or they would have to evacuate the Gap. Our forces want on from there and bagged Col. Huck's regiments of Tennessee Tories, except a few stragglers, and paroled them, requiring them to go North, but still held on to Huck, and other officers. These tories reported our informant, as he conversed will several of them, that they are willing to be captured and released from obligations to fight any more against the South, being heartily tired of the service. They said three or four hundred were then prisoners, and about three hundred had previously deserted. Gen. Smith's headquarters are at Cumberland Ford. The Yankees had tried to evacuate the Gap.
