Lynchburg, July 28
--A letter to the Republican, dated Camp Stuart, Greenbrier county, 25th inst, mentions the arrival there of two hundred and fifty of Morgan's men, who crossed the Ohio near Parkersburg. The rest of the command were prevented from crossing by the gunboats. An officer says they lost about three hundred in the battle. None were taken prisoners.


[Second Dispatch]

Lynchburg July 28
--Several of Morgan's men have arrived here. They crossed the Ohio river a short distance below Parkersburg, and captured two hundred Home Guards and one 12 confider field piece.

They were with the main command on the 12th, and deny the Yankee report of the capture of a thousand of Morgan's men that day. They also express their confident belief in Morgan's ability to make his escape. Two of the command only were drowned in crossing the Ohio.
