The Daily Dispatch: September 16, 1862., [Electronic resource], By the Governor of Virginia — a proclamation. (search)
tar fleet is quietly at anchor near the heart of the city, as an adjunct of the terrible batteries, ready to rain destruction upon hostile occupants from so many points, if they were once to obtain a foot-hold here. Bragg's Movements in Western Virginia. The New York Times says: We have received confirmation, upon pretty good authority, of the statement that the rebel General Bragg is marching towards the Ohio river, through Western Virginia, with over 20,000 men. It is said that Western Virginia, with over 20,000 men. It is said that he passed through Chattanooga several days ago, and was supposed to be gone to Knoxville. If this be correct, he would be directly on his route to Virginia, and it would not take him long, after passing that point, to get within the limits of the Old Dominion, where he may shortly be heard from in the Kanawha district, and there is nothing there to stop him. General Cox has gone East, and has left less than 5,000 men to protect that valley, and there will be, therefore, nothing to hinder Bragg
From Western Virginia. The War Department received yesterday morning information from the command of Gen. Leering of the most gratifying character. That officer telegraphed the Department that he had defeated the Federal forces in three separate engagements, and that the routed enemy were rapidly retreating down the Kanawha Valley towards the Ohio river, while his own forces were in hot pursuit. These engagements took place near the Great Falls of Kanawha, a few miles below the mouth of the Gauley river. Gen. Loring also states that Gen. Jenkins had recently captured a Federal depot of arms and provisions, and that Gen. J. penetrated some twenty miles into the State of Ohio. the number of arms captured is estimated at 5,000.
