Operations in the Kanawha valley. We have, this morning, a brief account of the engagement in which a part of Gen. Floyd's force routed the Yankees under Tyler. This account is not very explicit. But it shows that our forces were victorious after a rencontre, which, from the small loss involved, must have been short. The Yankees certainly got off promptly and rapidly, or our men would have wrought more extensive results.
of North Carolina are now, however, thoroughly aroused, and will not wait to investigate the make of the past. Battle of Cross Lanes. We are indebted to a correspondent in Fayette county, Va. for the subjoined account of the defeat of Col. Tyler's Federal Regiment by a portion of General Floyd's brigade! An engagement took place to-day (August) 26th, between some eight hundred of the enemy under Col. Tyler, and General Floyd's forces, at a place called the "Cross Lanes," neaCol. Tyler, and General Floyd's forces, at a place called the "Cross Lanes," near the junction of Meadow and Gauley rivers, some twenty miles above the month of Gauley river. Gen. Floyd had the misfortune a few days ago to lose a boat and four of his men, viz: Dantel Mallory of Grayson, and Hugh Scott, John Jones and George Bare, of Symths, who were drowned by the boat going down into the rapids below the ferry. The enemy supposed that he had gotten over only a portion of his force, and seized the opportunity while they were thus "cut off," as they thought, to march

Tyler in the Kanawha valley. The Times fears that important district of Western Virginia will shortwhat they want — lead in Missouri and salt in the Kanawha." The Times regards the destruction of Tyler's command as possibly but the beginning of an onset that shall sweep every vestige of the Union y from that part of Virginia. Cincinnati, Aug. 25.--We learn from the Kanawha valley that Col. Tyler's forces at Summersville, Va., were surrounded and badly defeated by the Confederates, under F
On the 12th, his column was at Paris; on the 15th, at Union, in Monroe county, and on the 17th, at Lewisburg, in Greenbrier county. From that point he crossed over the Flat Top Mountains, by the same route taken a few days afterwards by Gen. Lee's army, and proceeding to a spot near the Gauley Bridge, awaited the arrival of Gen. Lee. Joining their forces on the 24th instant, it would seem from accounts that the two Generals proceeded along the Gauley river, crossed that stream, attacked Col. Tyler at Summersville, and defeated him with heavy loss on the 26th. We have no further date as to the movements of these Confederate Generals. But it is easy to see that they have immediately followed up this slight success by a further advance into the bowels of the land. It is more than probable that before this time both Gen.
