New York times narrative. camp Scott, near Carnifex Ferry, Gauley River, Nicholas Co., Va., September 12th, 1861. A succinct account of the battle of Carnifex Ferry, on the 10th inst.; the retreat of Floyd and his army; the capture of his camp equipage and large quantities of army stores, ammunition, muskets, swords, and the personal baggage of Floyd and his officers, on the morning of the 11th inst., was forwarded by telegraph from this camp to the Associated Press of the country. Presuming that the tidings reached you, it will be consistent to bring up the history of the expedition from the point from whence I wrote my last communication to you. The incidents of the march were much more interesting to us than a sketch of them could be to your readers, and I will, therefore, hurry over the ground currente calamo, until we reach the battle-ground. The column moved deliberately over

e with the best that can fall to the soldier's lot. They have shown themselves worthy of the best. Another account: an eye-witness communicated the following to the Missouri Republican: The fight or siege really commenced on Wednesday, the 11th, at which time an advance force of three thousand men, under Gen. Harris, advanced upon Lexington from the south. Lexington at this time was held by Col. Mulligan, of the Irish Brigade, with a force of two thousand six hundred and forty men, made six hundred and fifty men, left Kansas City on the 3d inst., in company with one hundred and fifty men under Col. Van Horn, and marched to Lexington. On the 7th, they went to Warrensburg and took a lot of coin from the banks, and returned on the 11th. The whole number of troops then in Lexington, was two thousand six hundred, and no reinforcements arrived up to the time of surrender, on Friday last. Besides their own force, there were nine hundred men belonging to Col. Mulligan's Irish Bri

The Commanding General is pleased to express his high appreciation of the conduct of the officers and soldiers under Colonel Stuart in the combat at Lewinsville, on the 11th inst. Such deeds are worthy the emulation of the best-trained soldiers. Three hundred and five infantry, under Major Terrill; a section of artillery, under Captain Rosser; and a detachment of First Cavalry, under Captain Patrick, met and routed at lHeadquarters army of the Potomac, Sept. 13, 1861. The Commanding General has great satisfaction in making known the excellent conduct of Colonel J. E. B. Stuart and of the officers and men of his command in the affair of Lewinsville, on the 11th instant. On this occasion, Colonel Stuart, with Major Terrill's battalion, (Thirteenth Virginia Volunteers,) two field pieces of the Washington artillery, under Captain Rosser and Lieutenant Slocomb, and Captain Patrick's company of cavalry, (First V
accompanied by Lieutenant John T. Wood, Company H, Twenty-fifth Ohio, and Lieutenant M. Green, Company B, Fourteenth Indiana. I was ordered to proceed with haste to the relief of Captain Coon, of the Fourteenth Indiana, who, on the morning of 11th instant, had been ordered to guard a pass, five miles northwest from Camp, leading from the main road to Elk River. Half a mile from Camp I found three wagons, whose horses and drivers had that morning been taken by rebels, who during the night had d by Major Christopher of the Sixth regiment Ohio, with one hundred men at Conrad's Mills, two miles in the rear. The first position was about eight miles in advance of my camp, and four miles from the enemy's encampment. On the morning of the 11th, Capt. Templeton's pickets were attacked by the enemy's column advancing down the road; they fell back on the main force — the enemy still advancing in force. Capt. Templeton despatched a dragoon for reinforcements. I immediately sent the left w
es above Charleston, he ordered out five hundred men, under command of Lieut.-Col. Toland and Major Franklin, with directions to proceed immediately to Winfield, and there land the force and pursue the rebels. In one hour after the order was issued five hundred Zouaves, with all their arms and equipments, were on board the Silver Lake, making rapid headway down the Kanawha, and all eager to give the pirate rebels a taste of Government powder. We arrived at Charleston about midnight of the eleventh, and were delayed there by order of Col. Guthrie, commanding that post, until seven o'clock of the next morning. Colonel Guthrie accompanied us from Charleston, and we proceeded to Winfield, which is twenty miles further down the Kanawha, where we arrived about nine A. M. Here we were joined by two companies of the Fourth Virginia, who had been sent up from Point Pleasant. While the men were getting breakfast, Col. Guthrie took a small detachment of men across to the Red House, and captur

United States steamer San Jacinto, At sea, Nov. 12, 1861. sir: In obedience to your orders of the 11th instant, I have the honor to make the following statement: On the 8th instant, about half-past 1 P. M., I was ordered to ac Jacinto to New York. We arrived at St. Thomas on the 10th of October, and found the Powhatan and Iroquois there. On the 11th, the British brig Spartan arrived in port; her master called on Capt. Wilkes and informed him that on the 5th of October,
o the expedition from which I have this afternoon returned, by the order of General Schenck, from the pursuit of General Floyd, upon the road to Raleigh, by which he escaped by a most rapid and arduous march last night. Upon the night of the 11th inst., while at a kind of bivouac at Loup Creek mouth, where I had been with part of my command, by the directions of General Rosecrans, since the 5th and 6th insts., I received your orders to proceed as early as practicable with the force then at thued its retreat ten miles on the 13th, and halted at Camp McCoy for the night. During the whole of the retreat, thus far, there was a great deal of excitement, fear, and especially loss of baggage, property, and provisions and on the night of the 11th, they burned about three hundred tents, several bales of new blankets and overcoats, and a number of mess chests, camp equipage of all kinds, and flour barrels were burst, contents scattered on the ground, and all kinds of provisions wasted and sc

Peabody, saying that he was retreating from Warrensburg, twenty-five miles distant, and that Price was pursuing him with ten thousand men. A few hours afterward, Colonel Peabody, with the Thirteenth Missouri, entered Lexington. We then had two thousand seven hundred and eighty men in garrison and forty rounds of cartridges. At noon of the 11th we commenced throwing up our first intrenchments. In six hours afterward, the enemy opened their fire. Col. Peabody was ordered out to meet them. The camp then presented a lively scene; officers were hurrying hither and thither, drawing the troops up in line and giving orders, and the commander was riding with his staff to the bridge to encourage his men and to plant his artillery. Two six-pounders were planted to oppose the enemy, and placed in charge of Capt. Dan. Quirk, who remained at
considerable excitement at the time. Lieut. Worden left Washington on the 7th of April, 1861, as bearer of despatches to Captain Adams, of the frigate Sabine, in command of the fleet at Pensacola. The fleet had previously been sent to Fort Pickens, with two companies of artillery, for the purpose of reinforcing the fort when so ordered, and the despatches carried by Mr. Worden contained orders to that effect. Lieut. Worden arrived at Pensacola by way of Richmond and Montgomery, on the 11th, having committed the despatches to memory, and torn them up for fear of arrest and search, owing to the excited state of the country. Arriving at Pensacola he obtained an interview with General Bragg, the rebel commander, and obtained a pass to visit Captain Adams, stating, in reply to an interrogatory, that he had a verbal communication from Secretary Cameron to the captain. Owing to a gale which was blowing at the time, Lieutenant Worden did not visit Captain Adams until the following da
Doc. 214. the Iroquois and the Sumter. Official report of Com. Palmer. the following official report from Captain Palmer, of the Iroquois, embraces his account of his experiences with the privateer Sumter at Martinique: United States steamer Iroquois, off St. Pierre, Martinique, Nov. 17, 1861. sir: I addressed a letter to the Department on the 11th inst., upon my arrival at St. Thomas. On the day following, in the midst of coaling, a mail steamer arrived, bringing information that the Sumter had just put in on the 9th to Port Royal, Martinique, in want of coals. I had been often led astray by false reports, but this seemed so positive that I instantly ceased coaling, got my engines together, and was off at 2 in the mid-watch for Martinique, arriving at St. Pierre in thirty-six hours. On turning into the harbor I discovered a suspicious steamer, which, as we approached, proved to be the Sumter, flying the secession flag, moored to the wharf, in the midst of this
