h West. Safay of the Virginia and Tennessee railroads-- Gens. Zollicoffer, Marshall, and Floyd. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Abingdon, Dec. 1, 1861. It can be said wit Pound Gap much nearer than Piketon. Hearing of the attack of Col. Clarkson's cavalry, from General Floyd's army, on Guyandotte, they took a panic, and, after gathering up all the plunder they could for the line of the railroad about Newbern, owing to false reports of a disastrous retreat by Gen. Floyd, which got into circulation; but it has turned out that these rumors were more exaggerations. General Floyd went down to Cotton Hill, Fayette co., on a plan concerted with Gen. Lee, to take the enemy in the rear, while General Lee should occupy him in front, before Sewell-- shortly after setent to South Carolina; leaving a very small force in front of the enemy at Meadow Bluff. When Gen. Floyd, therefore, reached Cotton Hill, instead of being able to effect anything in the enemy's rear,

From that bleak summit they looked down on the encampment of the invaders who have seized on their country, and still hold the fairest regid possession of their country ever since.

On the 28th day of February, 1846, the Legislature directed the Superintendent of the Armory to sell, under the direction of the Executive, all such arms and accoutrements then in the armory as were not worth repairing.--This order was construed by Governor Floyd to include the iron six-pounders then at the armory, and by an order date February 22, 1849, the Superintendent was directed to sell them at not less than twenty-five dollars each. Fortunately for us, there were no bidders at that price, and the guns remained in the possession of the State, and now each one of those pieces is in the field, and they have proven to be equal to any guns of like calibre now in service. How small a circumstance controls the greatest events! What embarrass
