Kentucky Infantry, 1st Federal Tennessee, and 2d Federal Tennessee. There were a large number of Federal soldiers at Somerset, but the roads were muddy, and Fishing creek, near Somerset, had been greatly swollen by rain, and it was throught at that time by the Confederate commander to be impossible for the reserve forces which, e other Federal troops already at Logan's cross-roads to ford this stream. This battle has been variously called the battle of Logan's cross-roads (Federal), Fishing creek (Confederate), and sometimes the battle of Mill Springs. Generals Crittenden, Zollicoffer and Carroll had great faith in the courage and bravery of their tres of the trees on the mountain sides of the battlefield fall, or, at least, when the violets come, in the spring, there will be a monument to tell who died at Fishing creek.

lleck, with troops at Cairo and Paducah, under Generals Grant and C. F. Smith, threatened Columbus, and the defenses at Forts Donelson and Henry. Buell's right wing menaced Donelson and Henry, while his centre was directed against Bowling Green and his left was advancing against Zollicoffer at Mill springs on the upper Cumberland. The campaign opened with the defeat of the Confederates under Crittenden and Zollicoffer on the 19th of January, 1862, by General Thomas at Mill springs, or Fishing creek. While the loss was not severe, it ended with a rout, which left General Johnston's right flank exposed. To then reduce the force at Columbus would imperil the Mississippi river, nor could he hazard the loss of Nashville, and he, therefore, determined to make the fight at Forts Henry and Donelson, and soon Fort Henry fell. He had determined when the movement against Fort Henry was made to fall back on the line of the Cumberland, and make the fight for Nashville at Donelson. Buell

March: Philadelphia, 1881.—Ed. On the 23d of June, Rosecrans issued his marching orders. We shall defer to our fourth volume the recital of the campaign which brought him to Chattanooga. Nothing of military importance had occurred in Kentucky during the two months which had just elapsed. A few engagements only had taken place on the borders of the Cumberland between Pegram's Confederate troopers and Carter's Union men. After a few insignificant encounters—on the 25th of May at Fishing Creek; on the 28th near Somerset; and on the 31st more to the south, near Monticello—the Federals determined to send out a reconnoissance toward the latter point. Two mounted regiments left Somerset on the evening of the 8th of June, and overtook a third regiment which had arrived from Mill Springs on the left bank of the Cumberland. The column, under the command of Colonel Kautz, came up with Pegram's soldiers on the morning of the 9th, and drove them back in disorder beyond Monticello, tak<
Charleston. On the twelfth day of July, Captain Huck was sent 12. out with thirty-five dragoons, twenty mounted infantry, and sixty militia, on a patrol. His troops were posted in a lane at the village of Cross Roads, near the source of Fishing creek; and women were on their knees to him, vainly begging mercy for their families and their homes; when suddenly Sumpter and his men, though inferior in number, dashed into the lane at both ends, killed the commander, and destroyed nearly all hiined through 17. the whole night at Rocky Mount, though he knew that the British were on the opposite side of the river, and in possession of boats and the ford. On the eighteenth, he advanced only eight miles; and 18. on the north bank of Fishing creek, at bright midday, his troops stacked their arms; some took repose; some went to the river to bathe; some strolled in search of supplies; and Sumpter himself fell fast Chap.

t. Capt. Henry Ashby was in the skirmish, and did gallant service. Private Robert Crozier took a gray-headed Ohioan prisoner, who complains that after he was disarmed he was called an abolitionist, a charge which he indignantly repudiates. The army under Gen. Zollicoffer are reported to have entire confidence in him, and are eager to be led against the invaders. The health of his command is excellent, and his forces well provided for. A company of Lincolnite cavalry, on picket at Fishing Creek, were also attacked by our cavalry on Sunday and chased six miles, strewing the road as they went with guns, blankets, and pistols, which our brave boys deliberately gathered up. Among the arms thrown away by these panic stricken Northerners, were several Colt's rifles. More Prisoners.--Capt. Phillips, with his company of cavalry, last night brought in from Hancock county several prisoners, among them one deserter, who had joined Dr. Byrd's company. Capt. Cocke also brought in seve

Six new Ohio regiments will pass through Cincinnati this week for Kentucky. The Postmaster at Somerset writes under date of the 13th, that both armies are on the defensive, and fortifying. A gentleman, in the confidence of General Schoepff, writes (same date) that Gen. Zollicoffer is fortifying at Fishing Creek, five miles west of Somerset. Dr. John Jackson, without provocation, shot and severely wounded a Minnesota soldier, who went to his house, near Springfield, to buy hay. Jackson was arrested, taken to Lebanon, and probably tried by military law. He was a Douglas elector of the Ashland district, and a brother of him who shot Ellsworth. Vague rumors are afloat of a fight at Mumfordsville, between General McCook's division and the enemy, but they are not credited. Paris, Ky.,
From Kentucky. reported advance of the federals — battle expected — Prentice's Journal threatened. Nashville, Dec. 28. --A dispatch appears in the Cincinnati Commercial, dated at Frankfort, Ky., Dec. 19th, which states that advices from Somerset had been received announcing that on the previous morning, about day-light, Gen. Schaaff, with all his force, marched out to attack the Confederates under Gen. Zollicoffer, who was in position on Fishing creek, with 6,000 infantry and some artillery. Gen. Schaff's force consisted of two East Tennessee regiments; Haskin's Kentucky regiment; the 17th, 31st, 35th and 38th Ohio regiments; Standorl's Ohio, and Hewitt's Kentucky batteries of ten guns. Gen. Schaff seemed confident of whipping Gen. Zollicoffer, and indulged the hope of capturing the most of his command. The battle was expected to take place on or about the 20th inst.

It is understood that this command, under General Lane, in designed for a grand expedition through the section of country along the Arkansas border into Texas, simultaneously with the movement of all the divisions of the army of the Union. Yankee attack on the Salt works in Kentucky. A letter from Somerset, Ky., of recent date, says: On the night of the 28th the 35th Ohio, Col. Vandevier, made a silent, cautious march to the Salt Works on Fishing Creek, with the full expectation of capturing a regiment of rebel cavalry, who were guarding the works while some of their men were manufacturing salt. But when they arrived there the workmen and cavalry had gone to their camp. So they made a charge on the Salt Works, breaking the kettles, disabling the pumps, and spreading havoc among the utensils generally; after which they marched back to camp. Confirmation of the Evacuation of the Bethel. The Baltimore correspondent of the New
e than even the Northern accounts had led us to believe. The information received here is to the effect that on Sunday last General Crittenden, with eight regiments of infantry and six pieces of artillery attacked the enemy at a place called Fishing 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 ZollicFishing 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. At last accounts, Gen. Crittenden was in full retreat on Knoxville. It is not stated whether or not the enemy was in pursuit. Somerset is situated in Pulaski county, Ky., and is, by an air line, about eighty miles Northwest of Knoxville, and miles probably over a hundred by t
