The Daily Dispatch: June 16, 1863., [Electronic resource], The fight at
The fight at Monticello. The Yankee papers have long accounts of the fight at Monticello, Ky., and the defeat of the rebels. From Confederate official dispatches received at Knoxville we gather the following facts about the engagement: On the 9th inst the enemy advanced against Monticello with two regiments of cavalry, one of mounted infantry, and four pieces of artillery. Gen. Pegram retired with a portion of his command six miles south of the town, checking the enemy from point to point. After waiting two hours for the attack General Pegram turned upon the enemy and pursued him until dark. His most obstinate stand was in a dense forest, two miles south of Cumberland river, through which, although the enemy had the advantage in position and numbers, Gen. Pegram slowly and steadily drove him. The distinguished gallantry of officers and men is highly commended. Our loss was five killed and thirty wounded. The enemy's loss was nine killed, ten mortally wounded, and

Compliment to a Young officer. --In the fight at Monticello, Ky., the gallant Col. Ashby was wounded painfully, and had to leave the field. He at once requested that Lt. Tucker Randolph should be put in command of his regiment. Capt. Khun was by commission and seniority entitled to the position, and military usage did not admit of his substitution; but Lt. R. was sent to his assistance, and led some brilliant charges that were afterwards made. Lt. R. is a native of this place, and has barely reached his majority; but has earned honorable distinction among those with whom he has served. He is now attached to the staff of Gen. Pegram.

An ancient iron Clad. --We examined a few days ago, in the office of Attorney-General Galbraith, a very interesting historical relic, being a portion of the armor of one of the Spanish Knights who first invaded and explored the wilds of this Western continent. The armor was found in the neighborhood of Monticello, in Jefferson country, in this State. The portions preserved are the helmet, the vizor and gorget, and coverings for the arms. We understand that the rest of the armor was found, but has been inadvertently lost or destroyed. This armor is of the most solid and substantial character, that for the head alone weighing fifteen or twenty pounds, and being impenetrable to musket or rifle balls. It is probable that the armor belonged to one of the expeditions of Pamphillo de Narvaez, which was lost in the country, or to one of the army of De Soto, and is about three hundred and fifty years old — perhaps much older. There is a romantic interest attached to these relies of
The Daily Dispatch: April 4, 1864., [Electronic resource], The conspiracy in
The conspiracy in Kentucky. --The last Northern papers brought a vague notice of a conspiracy on foot in Kentucky to throw the State into the arms of the Confederate. The Louisville Journal says: It is said that the headquarters of the conspirators is at Monticello, in Wayne county, that they have been corresponding with Longstreet, they are believed to have established a central committee in every county to organize for co-operation with the rebel forces whenever we shall be invaded; and that the conspiracy was discovered through the seizure of mail letters addressed to its leaders by Kentucky members of the rebel Congress. All this may be true, or a part of it may be not. We doubt not that there is some foundation for the statement or rumor. All know how intensely and passionately anxious the many rebels in Kentucky are for the triumph of the rebellion within her limits. All know that their whole thoughts, feelings, hopes, earnings, aspirations, are for her annexatio
