We have intelligence of a late date, from which it appears that the news published yesterday of the enemy's having passed through Pound Gap
, on the Kentucky
line, was premature.
, who is now in this city, left Col. Williams
's camp on Friday afternoon last, at 4 o'clock, at which time the command occupied a position four miles this side, for the reason that there was no camping ground immediately in the Gap
It was the intention of Col. Williams
to return, after se his supplies, and defend the Gap
so long as he might do it successfully, though the lack of artillery is a serious disadvantage in the face of a vastly superior force.
In any event, his sharp-shooters will continue to harass the Federals
, and the experience of Piketon
shows that they can pich them off by the hundred.
