Affairs at Cumberland Gap.

A letter from Morristown, East Tennessee, states that the Federal have been driven back to the Gap, and are now entirely surrounded; the forces of Gen. Smith, which crossed the mountain at Big Creek Gap, over a week since, have gain the rear of Gen. Morgan's army. At Barboursville our forces captured 350 wagons loaded with provisions. The writer says he has information that our forces were in line of battle immediately in front of the Gap, and that a courier was hourly expected to bring tidings of capitulation.
