uff's regiment: The next day after reaching General Cox's Camp, on the Kanawha, a battle took place, fivewever, were not to blame; they fought gallantly. General Cox had 4 500 men within five miles of the rebels, wh was 1,500 men. Notwithstanding these advantages, General Cox sent only 1,100 men against them. He had not inflay if we were called upon. Col. Woodruff went to Gen. Cox, and begged him to allow the Second Kentucky Regiment to go to the battle ground. Cox replied that he had sent enough to take the rebels. In this he was mistakthe better judge. If his advice had been followed by Cox, the rebels would have been easily taken. This, however, is not all of General Cox's blunders; a still greater one remains untold. At about four o'clock on the evening of the fight, General Cox came to Woodruff, and told him that our men were victorious, but that the Colonund that our men, instead of being victorious, as General Cox had reported, were defeated.

We returned to camp, having marched about twenty-two miles and waded through several streams of water. We hear numerous rumors of the movements of Gens. Wise and Floyd, but nothing of a reliable character. The latest report is that they have engaged the enemy under Gen. Cox. This may be true, as reports of cannon were distinctly heard on yesterday and Monday. General Lee is said to be near Huttonsville. His future movements and the number of his troops, of course I am not informed of. The soldiers here have to perform pretty hard picket duty; but they obey the orders with alacrity and zeal. We have now about the healthiest encampment, perhaps, that can be found in the State. The weather is very unsettled, and rain has been abundant within the las
