"Some ten or fifteen horses were found dead this morning and others in a dying condition. "The road down the mountain is badly cut by the torrents, and the telegraph is prostrated. "The sick — and there are many of them — are immediately attended to.

It is understood that the movement will be greatly strengthened by the speedy advance of the central column of Lee and Loring along the line of Rosencranz's retreat. You will not be surprised, therefore, if our combined forces winter in the rich valley of the Kanawha, and the eses to move a two-horse load, and even then it is a slow and tedious business. It is almost impossible for a horse to move out of a walk from General Floyd's to Gen. Lee's camp, and before we could take up our march on yesterday, we had to cut a new road nearly four miles long!
