ap with about three thousand men and fourteen pieces of artillery, while General Samuel Jones, commanding troops of all arms, was guarding the most elevated section ontering Knoxville without firing a gun. Buckner's troops were thus cut in two. Jones, faithful to the task which had been assigned to him long before, was falling, rnside had to be master of the road which traverses Cumberland Gap and to drive Jones' troops into Virginia. That was his first care. Courcy's brigade, in order toe, he might yet have reached Virginia through the valley of Powell's River; but Jones, himself being imprudent, sent word to him to hold his ground and promised promg the banks of the upper Kanawha, where we have left him, had come to reinforce Jones between Bristol and Abingdon.

Jones' two brigades, passing to the northward of Clinch Mountain, will occupy, at the neck of Bean's So turn the Federal positions.

They paroled on their retreat 75 or 80 of our men, whom, I suppose, they found it inconvenient to carry off. Of course the parole, under such circumstances, is worthless, under their own order.

ty yesterday morning: White Sulphur Springs, Aug. 27, Via Dublin, Aug. 28. To Gen. S. Cooper: We met the enemy yesterday morning about a mile and a half from this place, on the road leading to the Warm Springs. We fought from 9 A. M. to 7 P. M. Every attack made by the enemy was repulsed. At night each side occupied the same position they had in the morning. This morning the enemy made two other attacks, which were handsomely repulsed, when he abandoned his position and retreated towards Warm Springs, pursued by cavalry and artillery. The troops engaged were the first brigade of this army, Col. George S. Patton commanding. The enemy were about three thousand strong, with six pieces of artillery, under Brig. Gen. Averill. Our loss is about two hundred killed and wounded. The enemy's loss is not known. We have taken about one hundred and fifty prisoners and a piece of artillery. Samuel Jones, Major General.
