It would appear as though both sides were now gathering their strength for a decisive trial on Virginia soil at no distant day; other points, in the meanwhile, by the Confederates in particular, to be comparatively uncared for, McCulloch's destination may be Western Virginia, his purpose, to succor his friends Floyd and Wise.

Floyd with an army of 5,000, with 16 field pieces, entrenched in a powerful position, on the top of a mountain on the West side of the Ganley river.

He says there were about twenty Federals killed and about 100 wounded. He found two stands of colors, a few prisoners, and some camp equipage, which Gen. Floyd left when he evacuated his position.
