From Eastern Kentucky. two Fights in Pike county--occupation of Pikesville by the enemy — the enemy Advancing on Virginia — great excitement in Tazewell and Buchanan — our forces fall back to Pound Gap in Wise — election news — good and bad failures--Union men Rejoicing. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Tazewell C. H. Va. Nov. 11, 1861 We have just learned, through our dispatch bearer, M. L. Comann, some very exciting and interesting news from the Sandy country. Y my last epistle.) On last Thursday, the 7th, our forces fell back from their position to a place called Gauley Bridge, a new name recently given to a little creek or ravine called Marrow-bone, some 16 miles from Pikesville, the county seat of Pike county. At this point, a little deep stream empties into the Louisa Fork of Sandy. A bridge of some length crosses this stream. Here our forces determined to give the enemy a chance to show their bravery.

The Captain reports the enemy's loss at from 10 to 12--among the number the vile traitor of that county, Aaron Fulkerson. A sharp skirmish was also had on the same day at the month of Cole, some 4 or 5 miles below, where Captain Harris attacked the party referred to. Our force all fell back to Pikesville, and early on Saturday morning took up their line of march for the Pound Gap in Wise county, Virginia, some sixty miles from Abingdon, leaving the main road from this place to the State line open to the enemy. Since their occupation of Pikesville, they (2,000) have advanced to within two and a half miles of our State line. The excitement here is great. The militia of Buchanan turned out on the Sabbath, and commenced blockading the road some eighteen miles below their county seat. Runners from there reached here this morning calling for help.

Bowen, will have his entire Brigade upon the line of march for the scene of conflict in a few days. The election came and went off very well. Walter Preston is no doubt elected by a handsome majority. He beat McMullen in this county over one hundred votes. Two failures occurred in this and the adjoining county of Buchanan this week--one a good one, and the other not quite so good. They failed to vote in Buchanan for President, or for a member of Congress, not knowing when it was to be. Our people (two or three of them) attempted to hold a meeting here on election day to put down the price of salt at the Salt Works, but could not get more than half a dozen citizens in the Court-House for that purpose, and of course it proved a failure. We will try and hold a meeting next Court to put down the price of pork;

May, he did it well; the whole force being under his command by general consent. On Friday last, the 8th, the enemy advanced up to the place named, and at about 9 o'clock Capt.
