of, said to be mortally wounded in the side. Also, they carried away, in wagons that belonged to Col. Whaley's men, several dead bodies. The names of the dead on our side, as far as we can learn, are James Massie, Wm. Vititoe, Pleasant Lunsford, all from the northeast part of this county, and John Malloy, an Irishman. We can arrive certainly at ten wounded on our side — among them Wm. Wilson, Clement Nance, George Sines, and Amos Lambert, of the northeast part of this county. The leg of Sines was broken by a ball. Also a man named Bragg was among the wounded. Dr. G. B. Bailey, of Portsmouth, who commanded the Portsmouth Company in the First Ohio, at the Bull Run defeat, is said to have been shot in the chin, and taken prisoner. He was acting as assistant surgeon in Col. Whaley's command. We know, leaving out of account any reported thrown into the river, that of the Federal troops five were killed, ten wounded--this positive; others probably killed and wounded. The rebel los

with them the following Union citizens, after having first taken and destroyed their goods: Wm. Dowthit, merchant, and his son; Dr. Rouse, druggist, who was also a Commissioner of the Federal Court; Albert White, and perhaps some others. At Barboursville they captured John W. Alford, candidate for the Legislature; Matthew Thompson and all his goods; old Mr. Kyle and Morey. These prisoners were lashed together and compelled to walk. Among their other cruelties, I will mention one incident: Jough he were going to land. But ten or twelve men showed themselves, and there is very little doubt that the warehouse was full of his ragamuffin crew. When I left, there was a report that three thousand infantry of the rebel army were at Barboursville, marching on Guyandotte, but I supposed it to be a false rumor. Yours, most respectfully, J. C. Wheeler. Mr. Wheeler says, in addition to what he has written, that the first intimation he or any one else had of the attack upon the tow

n crossing the Guyandotte River. Several others are missing, and are supposed to be killed. Among the number is Capt. G. W. Bailey, of Portsmouth, who commanded a company in the railroad masked battery affair at Vienna, and also at Bull Run. Among those taken prisoners, are the Hon. K. V. Whaley, who was in command of the place; T. J. Heyslip, Clerk in the Quartermaster's Department; Capt. Paine, of Ohio, who was one of the first three to plant the Stars and Stripes on the walls of Monterey, in Mexico; and Capt. Ross, of Ironton, an intelligent Scotchman. Captain Thomas, of Higginsport, Ohio, is supposed to be taken; and also Dr. Morris, of Ironton, the first Surgeon. The rebels also arrested and took with them the following Union citizens, after having first taken and destroyed their goods: Wm. Dowthit, merchant, and his son; Dr. Rouse, druggist, who was also a Commissioner of the Federal Court; Albert White, and perhaps some others. At Barboursville they captured John W. Alf

hat the number of the enemy was too great to contend against, and fled immediately, except in a few instances, where they hid under houses and log piles until the enemy retired. Some fifty or sixty are known to have got away, and perhaps others will turn up. The rebels held the place until about ten o'clock the next morning, when the S. B. Boston came up with about two hundred of the Fifth Virginia regiment, under Col. Zeigler. They were joined by a number of the Home Guards, of Lawrence County, Ohio, who had assembled at Proctorsville, opposite, to prevent the rebels from landing in Ohio, which they had threatened to do. On the arrival of the Boston, some shots were fired at her from Guyandotte, which were answered by a shot from a small two-pounder, sending a ball through a rebel's brick house. The rebels immediately left on double-quick time, and the hypocritical secession citizens, who had been instrumental in getting up the attack, came on the bank of the Ohio with a gre

Three of our dead were found--one was known to be shot one mile above town, on the bank of the Ohio River, and four in crossing the Guyandotte River. Several others are missing, and are supposed to be killed. Among the number is Capt. G. W.

morning, whom they left, just as the steamer Boston, with a portion of the Fifth Virginia, under command of Col. Zeigler, was about arriving, and other Union soldiers were gathering in; for the country, for thirty miles above and thirty below, had been alarmed. We find it a difficult matter to arrive at the exact loss on either side, but probably can get fully as near to it as usual in such cases, perhaps nearer. The dead bodies of six--four Union, two rebels — have been brought down to Ceredo, one of them a rebel captain. They carried off their wounded, except one we hear of, said to be mortally wounded in the side. Also, they carried away, in wagons that belonged to Col. Whaley's men, several dead bodies. The names of the dead on our side, as far as we can learn, are James Massie, Wm. Vititoe, Pleasant Lunsford, all from the northeast part of this county, and John Malloy, an Irishman.

fifty men yet in camp, was completely surprised by seven hundred cavalry, under command of Jenkins, the guerilla chief, and cut to pieces or captured, with the loss also of about thirty horses, a small stock of Government stores, and two hundred Enfield rifles. The dead and wounded on either side could not be clearly ascertained, but supposed to be ten or twelve killed, and twenty or thirty wounded. The enemy captured seventy prisoners, and their loss in killed and wounded was equal to, if nots places of making stands, made a gallant resistance of over an hour, pouring a dreadful fire in upon their assailants in the streets. From their scattered condition at the onset, probably not many over one hundred Union men got to their guns — Enfield rifles, but those that did, fought desperately against four to one, and they only gave up the fight, at last, when overwhelmed by the superior numbers. There was a sanguinary struggle at the bridge over the Guyandotte River, and those who hav

He swam out, concealed himself, and after daylight the next morning, he with another man, having passed up under the bank of the Ohio, was shot from the house of Robert Stewart, a notorious rebel, just above Guyandotte, and wounded severely in the thigh. Wilson was lying at Fuller's, in Quaker Bottom, Monday night. Yells of the infuriated rebels were often heard, such as: Don't let a man escape! Give 'em hell! Take no prisoners! and language not best to repeat. There are reports of firing on our men from the windows in town; so men in the fight say. The rebels pursued the squads, charging upon them around the corners, running down individuals, killing some, wounding others, taking others prisoners; and after the fight was over, they hunted many from places where they had attem
