A Victory in Tennessee--capture of several hundred prisoners.
[special dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]
--On Tuesday morning a fight occurred at Telford
's, a station on the East
Tennessee and Virginia Railroad, 33 miles from Bristol
and 93 from Knoxville
The enemy was driven back six miles to Limestone.--There our forces came up with them, and after a short engagement captured several hundred Yankees and about 100 East Tennessee
tories, who had gotten into a block house, from which they were delivering a pretty heavy fire on our troops.
Our casualties were slight.
The loss of the enemy is not known, as their dead and wounded were carried off to the rear in a train on the railroad.
Two hundred and fifty-five of the prisoners arrived here this evening.
The rumored capture of Crowley
, and Nelson
They all escaped, and have come through into our lines.
