ttacked Strawberry Plains, seventeen miles east of Knoxville, at 5 P. M. After a brisk fire of half an hour, our troops surrendered to superior numbers, and the enemy paroled 130 prisoners. The enemy burnt the bridge over the Hoiston, the depot., and several private dwellings, rifling several others. Then they proceeded to New Market, eight miles east of Strawberry Plains, and on Sunday to Mossy Creek, four miles farther, where they burned the bridge, tore up the railroad track, and cut the telegraph wire and poles. On Monday, between Mossy Creek and Morristown, 42 miles east of Knoxville, they were confronted, in front and rear, by the commands of Gens. Jackson and Pegram, and Col. Scott. It is rumored and believed that we took all their artillery, and dispersed their whole force — our cavalry pursuing and capturing prisoners. In the fight of Saturday our loss was six killed and nine wounded; the Yankees twenty one killed and wounded. No injury to property here.
the out- buildings and the residence of the owners, and tore up the track for several miles. The 54th Virginia regiment, which had been stationed there, had just left that morning for Knoxville, and the place was therefore defenceless. They told two citizens, whom they captured there, that they were going on to burn Knoxville. The result of their going on is given in the telegraphic dispatches. The raid came just as the section of country South of London had been transferred from Gen. Buckner's department to that of Gen. Jackson, at Chattanooga, and in the movement or troops consequent on the change several places were left undefended, which would not have been the case if the transfer had taken place a few days later or earlier. It will be seen from the telegrams that after their repulse at Knoxville the Yankees came as far east as Morristown, on the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad, which is 88 miles from Bristol. There, it appears, they were likely to come to grief.
