uthwestern part of the Great valley of Virginia, and forced him back toward Abingdon. Another skirmish took place on the 15th near that place and another near Glade Spring, as Vaughn, in falling back, resisted the advance of the Federal raid. Gen. J. C. Breckinridge, in command of the Confederate forces in southwest Virginia, command some 5,500 men, nearly twice as many as Breckinridge could get together, Stoneman drove Vaughn's and Duke's commands before him, and pressing on passed Glade Spring, paying no attention to the Confederate force at Saltville, until he was delayed, by an action at Marion, on the 16th, but only for a short time, as his superitations for a few miles northeastward of Wytheville. Having accomplished so much in the way of damaging the Confederacy, Stoneman retired to the vicinity of Glade Spring, and on the 20th and 21st drove away the small force at the salt works and greatly damaged that important and indispensable salt-making establishment.

Trophies --It is stated that the Confederate Government has ordered that all arms and other property captured from the Federals on the battle field of Manassas, be taken possession of by the army officers, wherever they may be found. This would seem to be a judicious move. A correspondent, writing from Glade Spring, calls attention to the fact that arms of all descriptions are being carried off in great, quantities, and he thinks he has seen enough on the different railroads to furnish a regiment. It is clear that all these weapons should be in the hands of those who are fighting our battles, and we are gratified at the announcement that the authorities are turning their attention to the matter.
and notwithstanding it is one of the most efficient organizations of the kind in the State, it has passed unnoticed. It is called the Glade Spring Soldiers' Aid Society. The officers are Mrs. John H. Ernest, President; Mrs. Wm. B. Byars, Vice-Pres't; Mrs. E. A. Robinson, Treasurer, and Miss Virginia Edmondson, Secretary. They have four committees, consisting of five ladies.--Miss Mary Cunningham is at the head of the committee to solicit contributions; Mrs. Mary Smith on delicacies for the sick; Mrs. P. B. Shapp on lint, bandages, &c., and Mrs. David M. Stuart on clothing for the needy. Although they prefer in this matter that "their left hands shall not know what their right hands doeth," yet, as a matter of convenience to the Central Society, which may desire to correspond with these branch societies; and that their friends in the army may know to whom they are indebted to some extent for their comforts, it is to be hoped you will publish this communication.

--The telegraph operators captured by the Federals in East Tennessee were Jno. M. Crowley, of Richmond, Superintendent of the Chattanooga line, and C. K. Nelson and Ed. Montgomery, from Lynchburg. The Lynchburg Republican, of yesterday, says: Burnside's forces are reported in possession of Jonesboro, but we have no information as to the number. We have a force this side, but it is not prudent to state how many. The train that left here on Saturday last did not go farther than Glade Spring. It was not thought safe, in consequence of the excited state of the population of Bristol, who were fleeing to every direction from the expected advance of the enemy. On Sunday the train went through to the terminus of the road, and will continue to ran as usual for the present. On Saturday the East Tennessee train was on its way to Bristol when a fire was opened upon it at Center's Depot, twenty miles west of Bristol. All steam was put on, and the succeeded in getting into Bristol
troops there, took quiet possession of the place. So completely was their coming a surprise, that the engineer and train hands at the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad depot were all caught asleep. Three trains, which were standing at the depot, were destroyed. The enemy then advanced up the railroad towards Abingdon, which, we presume, fell into their hands, though we have no information of the fact. The next we hear of them they had, at nine o'clock yesterday morning, pounced down on Glade Spring, a depot on the railroad, thirteen miles this side of Abingdon, taking every one there by surprise and capturing all of the railroad employees except one, who managed to escape to tell the tale. At last accounts, the enemy were pushing up the railroad in the direction of Marion, which is twenty-seven miles on this side of Abingdon. This is a raid in Breckinridge's rear. The raiders, leaving his forces somewhere in the neighborhood of Knoxville, came up the north side of the Holstei
hwestern Virginia, are still in motion, having met with no check. They are believed to consist of five thousand mounted men, under Stoneman. It will be recollected we stated yesterday that, on Thursday morning, at 9 o'clock, they had reached Glade Spring, taking the people there by surprise and capturing all of the railroad employees, with one exception; and that at last accounts, a portion of them were advancing up the railroad in the direction of Marion. Information was received here yesterday that the main body had left the railroad at Glade Spring and started towards the salt works, six miles distant; and that the smaller party, previously mentioned, had passed Marion and were advancing on Wytheville, which is fifty-five miles this side of Abingdon. The object of this party is, doubtless, to break up the railroad, and thereby prevent reinforcements from being sent from the east to our troops at the salt works. They will, of course, destroy as much property as possible along th
this arm, they have not and will not attack the salt works. The statements of the telegrams mentioned are based on information telegraphed to Lynchburg by officers of the Virginia and Tennessee railroad, one of whom escaped from the enemy at Glade Spring, and the other went out from Lynchburg on an engine to make a reconnaissance. These officers also report that the enemy has destroyed every bridge on the railroad between Glade Spring and Max Meadows. Yankee papers confirm our surmise thGlade Spring and Max Meadows. Yankee papers confirm our surmise that Stoneman was in command of this raiding party. The news from Tennessee. The news from Tennessee, furnished us by the Yankee press, is not of the most delightful and cheering character, certainly; but we have the consolation, upon which we can always rely where their statements are concerned, that matters are not half so bad as they represent.
