ch was slow, for we wished to save our horses. We passed through the town of Frankfort, and a short distance from Lewisburgh we came to the camp of the Twenty-second, screened from view in a grove in a sink-hole. These sink-holes are one of the peculiar features of this valley, and the town of Lewisburgh is built in one. We arrived at the town at four o'clock, where the Kanawha force had already arrived. Here we learned that the rebels had kept on their flight in the direction of Sweet Springs, in. Monroe, and after passing the Green Brier had burned the bridge. After a night's rest, took up the march for the White Sulphur, the Ninety-first Ohio going with us as far as the ford of the river. On our march, we found two camps that were burning, and were designed for winter-quarters. One was on a hill beyond the town, and the other hid away in the ravine alongside of the turnpike. At the river we discovered that the rebels had destroyed five hundred barrels of flour that we
a contraband directed us to an extensive saltpetre works, which we destroyed. We arrived at Callaghan's at four o'clock, where we heard of the operations of General Duffie and Colonel Moore, and the retreat of Echols. We marched out on the Sweet Springs road, and encamped for the night on Dunlap's Creek. Hitherto our marches had been by easy stages, twenty miles per day, and had taken special care of our horses; but now we were in the enemy's country and the great object of the expedition before us, and our movements must of necessity be rapid. At two o'clock A. M., started for Sweet Springs, in Monroe, where, we arrived at ten o'clock, and halted for two hours for refreshment and to groom our horses. At the Springs captured a large quantity of manufactured tobacco, that was divided amongst the men, furnishing an abundant supply for a long time. Began the ascent of the mountain at noon, and in the gap captured a wagon-load of salt. The day was fine, and from the top of the
Liberty and Buford's Gap to Salem, on the Virginia and Tennessee railroad. This retrogade from our hazardous position was accomplished without loss and with but little annoyance from the enemy. From Liberty to Salem, our route lay along the line of the railroad, which we destroyed as we moved, arriving at Salem about sunrise on the morning of the twenty-first of June. After a short halt, we took the road across the mountains to the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, via New Castle and Sweet Springs, arriving at the White Sulphur on the afternoon of the twenty-fourth. This move into the mountains was necessary to disembarrass ourselves of the enemy's cavalry, which had overtaken and followed us from Liberty, hanging upon our rear and harassing our flanks; without doing us much actual damage, however. After we entered the mountains, they disappeared entirely, and we found ourselves at the White Sulphur with no enemy to contend with, except the natural difficulties of the country
oncealing the Thirty-third regiment on each side of the road, marched on. The over-confident bushwhackers — for such alone they are — followed, and, as usual, fired on our rear. A return fire from the infantry from the roadside greeted them, and killed fifteen and wounded several. Since then they have been very cautious of any too near approach to our columns. At Salem we turned north on the road over Catawba Mountain to Newcastle, and on the night of the twenty-third we encamped at Sweet Springs, in whose beautiful grounds of old the chivalry were wont to assemble and disport themselves. Passing the night of the twenty-fourth at White Sulphur, we reached Meadow Bluffs on the twenty-fifth, without incident, save the great need of rations, which began to be felt so pressingly in the ranks. On the twenty-sixth and twenty-seventh the march continued; on the latter day the command meeting wagons with abundant rations. Once more rest and quiet await us, and in a short time the army
fternoon of the same day. He found his way beset with difficulty, as General Early had reached New Market to direct the movement for his capture, and Gen. Fitzhugh Lee with two brigades had been ordered into the field. Echols was placed near Sweet Springs, and Jackson, ordered in every direction in the confusion, finally brought up at Clifton Forge near Covington. Averell attempted to re-enter western Virginia by the Sweet Springs road, but meeting Echols, turned off on an obscure road to CSweet Springs road, but meeting Echols, turned off on an obscure road to Covington, reaching there just as a detachment from Jackson was firing the Rich Patch bridge. He succeeded in getting part of his men across when Jackson cut his command in two, Colonel Arnett attacking, while Major Lady, with 50 men, three times during the night repulsed Averell's attempts to get the remainder of his cavalry across the bridge. At daylight Averell burned the bridge, apparently leaving the rear of his command to their fate; but the latter were stronger than Jackson, and, drivi

d, 500 wounded, and 100 missing. Early was hot upon his heels, McCausland leading with his cavalry. The night of the 19th Ramseur drove his rear guard through Liberty, twenty-five miles away. On the 21st McCausland, always enterprising, struck him again at Hanging Rock in Roanoke country, capturing some guns and prisoners, and Hunter passed on through Craig county to West Virginia. The northern historian, Pond, says in his account of this campaign: The night of June 24th—having passed Sweet Springs—the column reached White Sulphur Springs, and there had delicious water and a good rest. Had Hunter advanced from Staunton June 8th to Lynchburg, through the mountain gaps north of the James, it is hard to tell how he could have been foiled. Had he marched as fast as Early, or been bold enough to assail after he arrived, all the chances of the war were in his favor. Had he either marched by the right flank from Lynchburg and joined Grant at Petersburg, or retreated through Southwest V

ear the gap on the left bank of Jackson's River; the village of Sweet Springs is in the mountain, near the source of Dunlap's Creek; that of lock in the morning, they are all in the saddle, and soon reach Sweet Springs. The column, following the Union road to Fincastle, crosses sugade and some other troops, guards Peter's Mountain crest above Sweet Springs and the road followed by Averell in going to Salem. Jackson, wn. On the maps of Virginia is found a road which descends from Sweet Springs by the narrow valley of Potts' Creek to join, a few miles above Peter's Mountain, feigns a vigorous attack in the direction of Sweet Springs. Jones, persuaded that he wishes to reach the banks of Dunlap' followed in advancing, concentrates all his troops in front of Sweet Springs, and does not think of extending his line as far as Covington. es: Jackson follows them closely; Jones, hastily returning from Sweet Springs, occupies the passes of the Alleghanies and the Lewisburg road;

The following resolution was also adopted, viz: That it be recommended to each division of this district to appoint a committee of five persons, whose duty it shall be to visit from time to time the families of all persons who have volunteered or may volunteer, and see that they shall not suffer for any attention or comfort. X. Sweet Springs, Va., April 24, 1861. Yesterday evening, about 4 o'clock, a flag of Southern Independence, made and presented by the ladies of this place, was hoisted, and is now waving aloft. As it went up, it was greeted and cheered by the patriotic ladies, who were present in a goodly number. God bless those patriotic ladies, and may they have the satisfaction of seeing the proud and noble principles represented by the flag they have presented upheld by their husbands, sons, and lovers.

Patriotic letter --The following is a copy of a letter written by Brig. Gen. Wise to Mr. C. Bias, of Sweet Springs, Va., acknowledging the receipt of a flag for the Legion: The Confederate flag sent me by yourself, as Secretary of the Sweet Springs Valley Guard, was received yesterday evening; accept for it my grateful acknowledgements. Waving in front of my Legion it shall guide as against the invaders of our soil, and be planted over them victoriously, or else baptized and re-baptized in blood, consecrated on the altar of Virginia and the Confederacy. Whatever be our face, no stain of dishonor shall touch it, not more for our own sakes to whom it is given, than for your sakes who give.
