l Cox. There appears to be quite a Union sentiment here at present. All the way from here to Malden great cheering for the Union was manifested. July 26.--On the evening of the 25th the steamer Economy, with a detachment of men under Major Hines, was sent up the river six miles to Malden, to look after a foundry at that place, said to be casting cannon for the enemy. Not finding such to be the case, she returned to Elk River. One piece of the enemy's artillery, which was disabled at Scarey Creek battle, was found at a wagon shop, in Charleston, fully repaired and ready for service. It was duly cared for, and is now one of the Union detachments. The army will commence moving at noon. Dr. Litch volunteered his services to Col. Woodruff, of the Second Kentucky regiment, when at Guyandotte. The Colonel soon placed him upon his staff. The doctor being an experienced cavalryman led the charge upon Jenkins's cavalry at the Muddy Creek bridge fight, and had them at one time surr
battalion, and two companies of the Fiftieth Virginia. Once broken, the left could not rally, and the Forty-fourth soon captured their four guns, (two rifled six-pounders, one twelve-pounder, and one large field-howitzer,) and that part of the field was won. On the left the Thirty-sixth met with a more stubborn resistance. The enemy (the Twenty-second Virginia) was organized in the Kanawha valley, and made up largely of the rebel elite of that region, and had been in several battles, Scarey Creek, Carnifex, Cotton Hill, and Giles Court-House, and boasted of its invincibility. They declared that they would be in possession of Lewisburgh in half an hour. They fought bravely, but, notwithstanding the advantages of position and the cover of high, large rail-fences, could not stand the rapid advance of the Thirty sixth. The Thirty-sixth never broke its firm line of battle. In about fifteen minutes the Twenty-second Virginia was driven back over the brow of the hill, and completely

The fight on the Kanawha.a Federal account. The Cincinnati Commercial has the following account of the fight at Scarey Creek, in which a small portion of Gen. Wise's command, under Lieut. Col. Patton, engaged a superior force of the enemy: The steamer Dunlefth, Capt. A. D. Wilson, arrived from Parkersburg yesterday, bringing the latest intelligence from the Kanawha River. The reports being somewhat contradictory, we give the statements of both loyal and rebel authorities. Capt. Hugh Campbell, of the Government transport steamer Mary Cook, who came passenger in the Dunlefth, reports that a severe action took place on Thursday afternoon, between the rebels and the Federal troops under Col. Lowe, of the 12th Ohio Regiment, and seven companies of Col. Norton's regiment. Capt. Campbell did not learn any satisfactory details, but states that our troops exhausted all their ammunition, and retired, after severe loss, with their two field-pieces. The Federal fleet was lying
eral wounded. It is proper to state that the enemy only admit one killed and several wounded. But this brilliant little dash is but incidental to the important engagement which took place on the other side of the Kanawha, at the mouth of Scarey Creek. About 3 o'clock P. M., on Wednesday, the 17th inst., the Federal troops, numbering from 900 to 1200, and consisting of the 12th Ohio Regiment, and four companies of the 21st under command of Col. Lowe, a tacked Major Geo. S. Patton, at the mouth of Scarey Creek. A deep ravine, through which the creek found its way, separated the hostile armies. Our boys were thrown into some confusion in the early part of the action, out rallied again and fought gallantly Maj. Patton, who distinguished himself, was wounded and unhorsed during the battle, and the command then devolved on Colonel Frank Anderson, of the Wise Legion, whose name, as associated with General Walker and his Nicaraguan campaign, is historical. Captain A. S. Jenkins with
Wise's command, to intercept his communication with the East, and, by surrounding, to capture or destroy him. Wise was recalled at once, and by making good his retreat saved his command, to which the Kanawha troops were attached. It has been about four months since these things happened, though the country has passed through so many trials, it seems to us as many years. But the events of that time can never be forgotten by the Kanawha.--They had just triumphed over their enemies at Scarey Creek. Constituting the advance of Gen. Wise's forces, about six hundred Kanawha men had met fifteen hundred Lincoln troops, defeated, and utterly routed them. A large number of the invaders had been killed, wounded, and made prisoners; and more superior officers taken, I believe, than anywhere except at Manassas; and not even that, when all things are considered, was a more intrepid defence, or more decided victory. True, this was one of the minor combats of the war, but nowhere has there b
The engagement at Giles C. H. An official dispatch received at the office of General Lee, from Brigadier-General Heth, states that our forces attacked the enemy at Giles Court-House at sunrise on Saturday morning, and routed them completely, driving them from that point and beyond the stronghold of that country — the narrows of New river. There is no mention made in the dispatch of the loss on either side, nor is anything said of the capture of stores or prisoners.--We judge, however, that the fruits of the victory are substantial. From other sources we learn that Colonel George S. Patton, of the 22d regiment Virginia volunteers, whom, it will be recollected, was dangerously wounded in the battle of Scarey Creek, received some injury in this engagement.
