le are as yet too meagre to warrant a safe conclusion as to its causes. It seems that our army, under command of Major-General Crittenden, attended by Brigadier-General Zollicoffer, marched forth from its entrenchments and attacked the enemy fortified in a strong position on the other side of a stream of water. The fight seems to have been severe for some time, the enemy acknowledging seventy-five killed in a single one of his regiments. But at an evil moment General Zollicoffer was shot down, and then our forces lost all confidence, fell into disorder, and fled. It is quite plain that they relied upon General Zollicoffer in the fight, and that when he fGeneral Zollicoffer in the fight, and that when he fell, they would put no trust in his superior in command, General Crittenden, and gave up the contest. The report is, that Gen. Crittenden was in full retreat on the road leading to Knoxville, Tennessee, distant a hundred miles by road from Somerset; and the inference cannot be avoided that his army was much disorganized and in

Battle at Fishing Creek, Ky.--defeat of Gen. Crittenden's command — death of Gen. Zollicoffer. We regret to say that the report of a Federal victory in Kentucky, conveyed to us on Wednesday night from Northern sources by our special correspondent at Norfolk, and published in yesterday morning's Dispatch, is more than confirmed by intelligence received here at the War Department. It appears that our defeat was more decisive than even the Northern accounts had led us to believe. The inshing Creek, near Somerset, in Southeastern Kentucky. The Federals were under the command of Generals Schœpff and Thomas, and were strongly posted and entrenched behind Fishing Creek. The result of the action was disastrous to our arms. General Zollicoffer was killed, and immediately on his fall, our army was seized with a panic and was utterly routed, losing all its artillery, baggage, and camp equipage, and leaving 500 in killed and wounded on the field.

we suspect that the news yesterday received from our own friends in East Tennessee is somewhat heightened in its narrative. The enemy's account, via Norfolk, is not so bad for us as that we have received from East Tennessee. We trust that the true and reliable report will cut down a little the extent of our defeat. Nevertheless, there is certainly a defeat of our forces and a victory for the enemy, which will elate them wonderfully. Victories to them are few and far between, and all the more grateful when they do come for their scarcity. To us, however, this reverse should only be a motive for increased energy and vigilance. The locality where it happened enhances its bad effects, and should all the more nerve our arms for a powerful effort to retrieve our loss and revenge our countrymen who perished in the ill-fated conflict. The brave Gen. Zollicoffer will not be forgotten, and many an arm will strike a blow all the more powerful and deadly for the remembrance of his death.
