--A passenger from Dublin Depot Friday, gives some further particulars of the fight at Dry Creek
, in Greenbrier
, confirmatory of the statements published on Saturday.
The repulse of the enemy by Gen. Jones
was decisive, and our forces were in hot pursuit, picking up prisoners rapidly.
Our loss was about two hundred and fifty killed, wounded and missing, among whom are several valuable officers.
The 22d Virginia regiment suffered heavily, and was badly cut up. A portion of our forces are said to have been commanded by Gen. John Echols
We have no report of casualties except Col. Barbee
, who was mortally wounded.
No further apprehensions are felt that the enemy will be able to reach the Tennessee Railroad with their present force.
They have been effectually checked, and have suffered to such an extent as to make another attempt by the same party entirely out of the question.
A detachment from the main body, composed of about 1,200 men, under Gen. Scammel
, were not in the fight, nor is their exact locality known.
It was thought possible by some that he might attempt to slip through our lines and tap the railroad, but such a feat was deemed almost impossible of success from the nature of the country, and the disposition of our troops.
A dispatch from Dublin
, dated the 28th, says one of their Surgeons, taken prisoner, reports their loss at about 500.
We took about 150 prisoners.
