Kentucky. --The necessity of a vigorous policy in Kentucky is becoming more evident every day. We should not only place the line of the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad beyond the possibility of danger, but prevent Kentucky from being overrun and overawed as Maryland has been, and carry the war at once to the Ohio. It is painful to think that a miserable force like that under Rosencranz should so long checkmate our movements in Western Virginia. We ought to start at once, both in Western Virginia and Kentucky, for the banks of the Ohio, and at least aspire to the preservation of our own side of that river from the enemy's incursions. When there, we can determine whether he shall enjoy the privilege of inflicting war upon others and escaping all its horrors himself. We have soldiers worthy of being led by a Napoleon. France never produced a more military people. Let our motto in the West be, Onward and Forward. To stand still there is imbecility and disgrace.
From Western Virginia, A gentleman who left General Floyd's camp on the 16th inst., gives us some interesting information in regard to the movements of our army in the West, some portion of which we are permitted to make public General Floyd, with his command, left Big Sewell Mountain on Sunday last, and was at New river, in Raleigh county, (twenty-two miles distant,) on Wednesday. His intent on is to get a fight if possible, and will attack the enemy wherever he encounters him. Rosencranz has scattered his forces, and is foraging about the country, committing all kinds of depredations and outrages, in which the Union men are not spared. A portion of his army is in Nicholas county, and the remainder at Dogwood Gap and on the Gauley. It is conjectured that General Lee may start in pursuit, but of this nothing is positively known. We learn with regret that one of the most valuable men in Western Virginia lost his life on Wednesday morning last. His name was John Amick, and
From the army of the Kanawha. The correspondent of the Lynchburg Republican, in alluding to the recent retreat of Rosencranz, writes: We pursued the enemy as far as Mrs. Tyrel's — some eight miles--when we returned. (By the way, Mrs. T. is quite a favorite with our army.) Though both her sons are volunteers, and her y, but her heroic conduct satisfied them that she could only be robbed by being killed, and they never afterward troubled anything she had by violence. Indeed, Rosencranz gave her personal assurance that she and her property should be fully protected, but the virtue of this he afterwards destroyed by purchasing of Mrs. T. several head of cattle, getting the receipts for the same, and then never paying her one cent. This she says Rosencranz did himself, and she is a reliable woman. Mrs. T. is a fine-looking lady, of good character, and extraordinary will and nerve. She keeps one of the best hotels in Western Virginia, and it is a favorite resort of all
ain Bridge, respectively 30 and 40 miles from here — part of it under General Lee is said to have joined Floyd. Gen. Rosencranz's column. Cincinnati Oct. 10. --The Commercial's Kanawha advices say that Gen. Rosencranz is at Mountain CGen. Rosencranz is at Mountain Cove, a strong position, twenty-five miles beyond Gauley. He had advanced ten miles further, to Little Sewell, but the enemy were too well entrenched and too strong at Big Sewell, five miles further on, to be attacked, and Rosencranz fell back, as aRosencranz fell back, as an invitation to the enemy to come out and have a fair fight. There was no expectation of an attempt by the enemy to force his position. The weather in the Gauley region is terribly bad; rain falls almost incessantly. General Rosencranz'General Rosencranz's troops are well clothed, having plenty of overcoats and blankets. The fight at Chapmansville was a sharp and bloody affair. Five of Pratt's Zouaves were killed. Important correspondence between General Buckner and the Hon. J. R. Underwoo
