On the afternoon of the eighteenth, two cavalry companies which had been sent out by General Crittenden returned, reporting the position. of the enemy unchanged, and Fishing Creek so full that iof the roads before the Somerset brigade could unite with it, and, if possible, before it could be joined by the reserve from Columbia.
