wo miles from Abingdon. The road is represented to be the worst on the continent, and the streams to be crossed are moderately estimated at five hundred! This statement may seem incredible to an Eastern Virginian; but when he is informed that Camp Robertson is only a mile and a half from Abingdon, and that seven creeks have to be transgressed before reaching the latter, his ideas may probably be quickened. But the Pound is not the end of the journey. Far beyond, to Prestonsburg and to Paintsville, over a hundred miles, will the 56th have to trudge through rain, cold, mud and snow. They are going! The inexorable flat has gone forth, and, like the Children of Israel, the brave boys of the regiment will take up the line of march through the wilderness in the fond hope of reaching the rich Canaan of the Kentucky Blue Grass! The rigors of the campaign and the severities of the march are forgotten in the eager expectation of soon obtaining a land "flowing with milk and honey" They gl
From Southwestern Virginia. the Probabilities of a fight in Kentucky--an interesting entertainment — Tabtean Vivants — movements of troops. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Abingnon. January 1, 1862. Although this is the commencement of a year which will prove the most eventful in all our history, the tongue even of rumor is silent, and war news is voted out of fashion. Marshall is still at Paintsville, a most appropriate place, it must be admitted, for an artist to sketch his victory over Moore's forces, should they attack him. Buell still in doubt whether it would be good policy to march against Johnston. Indeed, the best informed persons express the opinion that there will be no fighting in Kentucky this winter. It is certain that there is no news here which justifies the belief of an early attack any of our lines. In the absence of all matters touching the war, I will present a short sketch of a very recherche entertainment this evening on
Federal report of the fight at Prestonsburg. Louisville, Jan. 14. --The following official documents have just been received at headquarters here: Paintsville, Jan. 8, 1861. Capt. J. B. Fry, Assistant Adjutant General: I entered this place yesterday with the Forty-second Ohio regiment, Fourteenth Kentuckymorrow morning. J. A. Garfield, Commanding Brigade, Brigade, Prestonsburg, Ky,. Jan. 11, 1862. Capt. J. B. Fry, Assistant Adj't-Gen: I left Paintsville on Thursday noon with 1,100 men, and drove in the enemy's pickets two miles below Prestonsburg The men slept on their arms. At four o'clock yesterday morning w one o'clock P. M. we engaged his force of 2,500, with three cannon posted on the hill. We fought them until dark, having been reinforced by about 700 men from Paintsville, and drove the enemy from all his positions. He carried off the majority of his dead and all his wounded. This morning we found twenty-seven of his dead on th
tten for the Abingdon Democrat, by the junior editor of that paper, who was a participant in the fight; but the Democrat being temporarily suspended, it was kindly furnished the editor of the Lynchburg Republican, in which paper it appeared on Monday, the 20th inst.: Camp on beaver Creek, January 13, 1862. For the last week we have been in the midst of stirring events. Last Sunday night our Colonel was notified by General Marshall that "the enemy are reported to be entering Paintsville — put your regiment under arms quietly."We were not attacked there, however, and, on Monday morning at two o'clock, orders were sent to cook all the provision we had, and prepare to fall back. We did so, but our regiment was unable to leave camp until half- past 3 o'clock, P. M., and only made some six miles; but such was the execrable condition of the roads, that all the trains did not get over until Tuesday night. We rested, therefore, during that day. Next morning we were aroused at 2
The loss of the enemy could not be less than three hundred. A gentleman has just arrived from Prestonsburg, who reports that they lost, in killed, wounded, and missing, one thousand men. We are informed that they immediately retreated back to Paintsville, and there reported that they had lost but one man killed and two wounded. Their report is false, and calculated to deceive their own people. Our position was such as to enable us to overlook them, and it makes my heart aches when I think of isparagement of their bravery for me to record the above facts; for I must say they fought long and fought, well, but certainly persisted in what they could not accomplish — i. e., to drive-ins from our position. We had been falling back from Paintsville for several days, because he could not subsist our men; and they, I suppose, conceived the idea that we were retreating from them. But to their sorrow did they find themselves mistaken, when they encountered us. If we had had one meals' victu
rted rout of the Confederates--Gen. Marshall Negotiating. The following Munchausen dispatch was telegraphed from Cincinnati, on the 11th inst., to the Yankee press: The Gazette says: From the editor of the late Sandy Valley Advocate, who arrived here from Sandy Valley, we learn the second invasion of Eastern Kentucky has ended in a disgraceful rout. On Monday last Col. Garfield's forces, including the 42d Ohio, 10th Kentucky, and 1,900 cavalry, had proceeded up Big Sandy to Paintsville, within seven miles of the rebel camp, when they were met by a flag of truce bearing a message from Humphrey Marshall, asking if matters could not be arranged without a fight. Col. Garfield immediately replied he could offer no arrangement except either to fight or surrender unconditionally. Marshall then addressed his men, informing them that they had no alternative excepting to surrender or disband, and giving them the choice. They decided to disband, and immediately collected an
ulness is its greatest recommendation, but its particular interest to a Virginia reader lies in the honorable mention made of one of our own regiments: Messrs. Editor: Knowing that every item of news from the State of Kentucky is hailed with great interest by your numerous readers, I have thought proper to give you a short account of the movements of Gen. Marshall from the 6th to the 15th of January. Gen. Marshall had taken a position and fortified himself some three miles above Paintsville, on the river. But after learning the movements of the enemy, he thought best to fall back so as to prevent the enemy from cutting off his supplies and getting in his rear. Hence we slowly began our retrograde movement, noticing the enemy, until on the night of the 9th we rested at the foot of the mountain, some four miles west of Prestonsburg. During the night of the 9th we learned that the enemy, in large numbers; was moving towards us from the direction of Prestonsburg. On the
are sorry to learn that among these are several of our acquaintances, and men that will be a great loss to our cause in that section, viz:--Alexander Martin, (son of Hon. J. P. Martin,) Milton Frieze, Hugh Williamson, and a few others — in all, some six or eight. After taking possession of Pikesville, the enemy, in cold blood, murdered Judge Wm. Cecil, an old citizen of the place, who had been previously wounded. We learn also from Mr. Stone, that the enemy's force is in camp at Paintsville, and that they contemplate wintering there or at Prestonsburg, while their cavalry will plunder and steal in the border counties of Virginia. Army portable flat-boat. Mr. E. B. Stephen, of Charleston, has invented and completed a new portable army flat-boat, which has been highly commended by our military authorities. It is intended for the ferriage of troops, wagons, horses, &c., from point to point in crossing creeks, rivers, &c., and can very quickly be taken apart or put to
