ns been neglected — The telegraph informs us of an engagement on the coast of Georgia, between a Confederate battery and a Federal steamer, in which the latter seems to have got the worst of it. At all other points, matters remain quiet. The affair at Romney, on the 26th, though not to bad as at first reported, is serious enough according to accounts from Winchester, published yesterday. It is probable that the enemy contemplate taking winter quarters in that section, and the importance of having an experienced officer to command there, if not demonstrated sufficiently by the Romney disaster, ought to be fully manifest by this time. From Kentucky and Missouri we have no fresh intelligence. The Kentucky papers furnish accounts of the latest engagements with enemy, which differ essentially from the reports in Northern newspapers. In every skirmish, the Federals have suffered a defeat correct version of the affair at Fredericktown Mo, will be found in our columns this morning.
From Missouri. particulars of the fight at Fredericktown — advance of General Thompson's army — strength of his forces, &c. [From the Columbus (Ky.) Confederate News, Oct. 27.] We are pleased to have it in our power to lay before our readers the true state of the case in regard to the recent engagement between the Federals and the Missourians under Jeff. Thompson. We have our information from an eye-witness and a gentleman of undoubted veracity. It seems that by some pery of this band of heroes, under the command of our neighbor and friend, Major Thomas Brown, they halted, and those in the rear, not understanding the matter, closed up and huddled themselves together until they were literally packed. Then our Missouri boys turned loose upon them with their deadly rifles and shot guns. The effect was terrible. Every saddle was emptied; not a man escaped. Terror, dismay and fear seized those in the rear, and they fled back to the town. This ended the fight.
