s of two or three on each side. On the 9th of January Garfield advanced against Marshall's position at Prestonburg, and day attacked him. The engagement was not a serious one. Garfield reported that he fought all day, engaging only about 900 rates, and losing only one man killed and twenty wounded. Garfield's report claimed a victory. He says: At half-past have captured stores of value. On the next day, however, Garfield retired, and fell back to Paintsville. General Marshad fourteen wounded. The loss of the enemy was severe. Garfield had stated that he captured one captain and twenty-five sce that day sought in any manner or form to reengage. Garfield is said to have fallen back fifteen miles to Paintsville;is a denial and a contradiction, general and specific, of Garfield's report; and, as it is impossible to reconcile the discr the reader is left to draw his own conclusion. While Garfield was at Paintsville, he was ordered by General Buell to ad
bering two thousand five hundred men, which could have made an organized stand in two weeks more, but it was betrayed by a recreant member and broken up and scattered. Many of these Union men have been arrested and taken to Little Rock; some have been hanged, and a large number are now in the woods trying to effect their escape from the State. A portion of the town of Platte City, Mo., including the Court House and Post-office, was destroyed by fire. It was set on fire about one o'clock by some rebels, but suppressed by the troops under Col. Morgan. At four o'clock it was again successfully fired. The county records were saved, but the contents and office were destroyed. Many arrests were made, including some of Si. Gordon's guerilla band and one of Price's captains.--Cincinnati Gazette, December 18. The Forty-second regiment of Ohio Volunteers, commanded by Col. J. A. Garfield, left Camp Chase, at Columbus, for the seat of war in Kentucky.--Louisville Journal, Dec. 17.
es west of Paintsville, on Jennie Creek, Ky. The rebels lost six killed, fourteen wounded, and seven prisoners. The Unionists lost two killed and one wounded. Before Colonel Bowles attacked him, Humphrey Marshall addressed his men, advising the surrender of the whole force. The men refused, saying that they preferred fighting to such a cowardly course. After a skirmish Marshall's whole force fled, and three hundred picked infantry and nine Union cavalry pursued.--(Doc. 9.) Colonel J. A. Garfield, with his brigade, consisting of the Forty-second regiment of Ohio Volunteers, the Fourth Kentucky, and three hundred of the Second Virginia cavalry, occupied the town of Paintsville, Ky. He says, in his despatch: On hearing of my approach the main rebel force left their strongly intrenched camp and fled. I sent my cavalry to the mouth of Jennie Creek, where they attacked and drove the rebel cavalry, which had been left as a vanguard, a distance of five miles, killing three and woun
d for sale in front of the Court-House. Quite a crowd assembled, among whom were a number of persons as rampant for their rights as a Southern sun could make them; but still among them all there were none — no, not one--who would come forward with the amount, settle the tax bill, and prevent the sale. Mr. Thuxton, the collector, proceeded with the sale until sufficient money had been realized to pay the taxes on Buckner's property in Louisville.--Louisville Journal, January 11. Colonel Garfield left Paintsville, Ky., yesterday, in pursuit of the flying rebels, and came up with them this morning, finding them posted on an eminence, two thousand five hundred strong, with three pieces of cannon. The fight lasted throughout the day, resulting in the defeat of the rebels, who were commanded by Humphrey Marshall. About sixty rebels were killed, twenty-five taken prisoners, and ten horses with a quantity of stores captured. The principal engagement took place at the forks of Middl
ions, and bring into camp at Bird's Point all citizens, together with their subsistence, and require them to remain, under penalty of death and destruction of their property, until properly relieved. Let no harm befall these people if they quietly submit, but bring them in and place them in camp below the breastwork, and have them properly guarded. The intention is not to make political prisoners of these people, but to cut off a dangerous class of spies. This applies to all classes and conditions, age and sex. If, however, women and children prefer other protection than we can afford them, they may be allowed to retire beyond the limits indicated — not to return until authorized.

March 16. This day Gen. Garfield defeated a body of rebels, intrenched on the summit of the Cumberland Mountains, in Eastern Tennessee. The National troops, numbering six hundred men, detailed in about equal numbers from the Forty-second and Fortieth Ohio, and Twenty-second Kentucky regiments and McLaughlin's cavalry, left their camp on the fourteenth, destined for Pound Gap. That point was reached to-day after a march of thirty-seven miles, performed in something less than two days. The enemy were taken by surprise, dislodged from their stronghold, and driven routed and discomfited from the field. The entire camp, with its equipage, consisting of numerous log — huts, canvas tents, subsistence stores, wagons, and all the trappings of camplife, together with some three hundred squirrelrifies, fell into the hands of the Unionists. In the absence of means of transportation, all but what the troops could carry on their backs was submitted to the flames. It was a brilliant succ

ut eighteen hundred men, commanded by Colonel A. D. Streight, of the first-named regiment. His force was called, by General Garfield, Rosecrans's chief of staff, who gave the leader his instructions, an independent provisional brigade, created for tby rebels, who seized their orderlies and baggage. They showed proper papers from the Adjutant-General (Thomas) and General Garfield, then Rosecrans's chief of staff, and asked Colonel Baird to loan them $50, to enable them to go to Nashville to refrock, and assault after assault was repulsed, until the sun went down, when, by order of General Rosecrans,. sent by General Garfield, his chief of staff (who reached the ridge at four o'clock), he commenced the withdrawal of his troops to Rossville.apiece when Steedman arrived, and furnished them with a small supply, and this was consumed in the succeeding struggle.
