II mure imumc "6UL ???" "D have heretofore Seen : (Correspondence of the Louisville Journal 1 Camp at PaintsvilU, Ky.. Jan. 13. Gen. Garfield, whe has been making Marshall retire rapidly before him t? this part of the country, was brought tot stand still a few days after Christmas by finding that the fat rebel had so snugly entrenched nimself within a few miles of here that it would reqaire as large a torce as he oould muster to drive him from it; o he immediately summoned all who were under his command to ioin him at this place, aad among others he called on Col. Lina&ej, whe, of course, although not yet mustered into the U. S. service, or brigaded under Garfield, responded cheerfully to the call, and our regiment by necessarily slow and tedious routes made its way as far as Louisa, Lawrence county, where the news reached us that Marshall bad burned his baggage and retreated under cover of darkness, leaving a clear field, and showing but the smallest sign of a fight. We were compelled to travel in detachments, as there are few boats on Big Sandy, and they are all small, and as the order calling us to aid him had not been countermanded by Gen. Garfield we continued our march up Lieut. Col. Monroe was first sent forward with a detachment of four companies and the remainder of the regiment was to go by landMonroe and his command reached this place on W^dnedday, the 8th January, and were immediately ordered to draw rations for three days, and hold themselves in readiness to iparch. Early on the morning of the 9th. With detachments from the 42d Ohio, 14th and Kentucky regiments of infantry, and a ikudr n of Wolford's cavalry, amounting in all thjabout 1,100 men, Gen. Garfield started on tab march to Prestonsburg in pursuit of the Marshall. They marched cautiously but rapidly daring bole of the first day, passing on theraute by Marshall's intrenchments, which oartainly offered the best defence for him that oould well be planned. For a mile before you reached the nl&ee bv the nrincinal road there worn breastworks thrown up in the style of abettis, behind which a hundred men could conceal themselves and fire on an unsuspecting foe, mtking a safe retreat through narrow ravines In the rear. The principal fortification was a fort built on the side of a hill, where cannon and fire thousand men could be sheltered, and wLi?h commanded three roads forking there, besides a considerable stream called Jenny's creek. Tremendous hills towered above and all round it, where the rebels could have posted flankers to harass the attacking party, and, taken all in all, it is said by military men to be the most complete natural fortification and most impregnable they ever saw. After pacing this place for a mile or two verythiag gave indication that they were fast coming into what might be ealled an enemy's country. An advance guard of caval.-y wa3 kept continually ahead scouring the country to prevent a surprise, and the day's march enaed about 8 o dock with Nothing of Stirling interest to relate. The men were tired, and as soon as they fell upon the earth with their blanket* around them they were fast looked in the arms of " sweet nature's blest restorer." An alarm from the pickets early in the morni?8, before daybreak, hardly sufficed to rouse them from their slumbers, and they returned again to sleep when they found it had only been a skirmish between a scouting party of the enemy and our pickets, which left the rebels the necessity of carrying off one of their number severely wooded. Ob the march again they passed through Prestonburg, and here wero informed that the enemy was about five miles ahead. Tired and jaded as they were, the expectation of having a fight reinvigorated them, and they moved on with renewed alacrity. About one o'clock p. m , In the vieinity of a stream called Middle Creek, they heard the sharp rattle of musketry in the direction of their advanced scouts. They halted, and the Adjutant of the 42d Ohio was sent with a squad of men over the creek to the point of a hul to discover the cause of the firing. As he reached the hill, our men heard the loud boom of cannon, and then they knew that there was no ordinary skirmishing to be done there. The Adjatant returned and reported the enemy in foro* on the omxnita nt th* hill ?<) soon began to appear on the peaks of the 'taU hills, a ad commenced firing on oar men. Gen. Garfield immediately divided bis force into three detachments, tearing one as reserve, giving one in ocmmand of Lieut. Colonel Monroe, and the other to Col. Oraner, of the 40th Ohio Volunteer*, and ordered the latter tc attempt the ascent of one of the peaka to the riyht. In his detachment was a portion of the ashington Rifles, commanded by Louis Sehweltser, of yoor city, and they behaved to ft man most gallantly. Craner's detachment won their way inch by Inch up the steep hill without the loss of a man, and killing several of the enemv, and drove them gradually down the other siae. and from the top of the hill obtained a full view of the oannen. Opposite them, and on a hill to the left of a cannon, whieh waa planted in the ravine, the rebels were intrenched behind a large rock whieh seemed impregnable from below. Craner's detachment divided their fire between the artillerists below and the infantry above. For some time they were in a moat dangerous position, being expoeed to the entire fire of the enemy from the two peaks whieh they yet ooeupied, and from the fite of the cannon in the ravine. Gen. Garfield. seeing the state of the cuv, oraerea l.i?ui colonel Monro*, of the 22d Kentucky, to atorm the rock on the hill with hi* command. And here commenced on* of the mott desperate nod determined fights thnt thia war haa yet given birth to. They crosaed the ereek,whieh was up to their waiata, amid a hot lire from the enemy, who doubtlesa divined their intention. When on dry land again, they atartedap the hill with ahoata.led on by Monroe and reached a flat on the aide of the hill, where they wer< Mailed by three fires from different pointa, at another force waa discovered on a hill to th? left who poured * warm Are into them, iiere, too, an unfortunate miatake occurred, which came near loaing the battle to oa. Craner'i men on the hill to the right, mistaking Monroe'i men for rebels, poured a lire into them from their aide, ao that he waa now exposed tc foar fires from foar different pointa. The blander waa aoon rectified, however, by Col. Garfield. from the stand where he waa observing the fight, calling oat to Craner that he waa firing into oar own men, and Monroe'a detachment raiding a about of "Hurrah for the Union," which waa instantly understood by Craner's men, and responded to by them with will. The rebel* raiaod a loud shout of "Harrah for Jeff Davia," and Mot a thicker volley of balls than erer, wounding an* of oar men badly in the arm. Oar men now bushwacked it; that it, sheltered tbemse.'vw behind trees and shot when they had a bead drawn on their man W ithin a few yards of the rock, Monroe ordered them to charge bayonets, and with load yalls for the Union they sprang np the hill and over the rocks. Three of oar men leaped upon the rock, and two of them fell?the ene dead with a ball through his brain, and the other with a bad wound in his leg Thickly the shot fell around them from the other two peaks, bat the secesaionists in the immediate vicinity of the rock tarned and fled indiaeriminately. The r *k was won by as gallant a charge aa has been reoorded. The fl^ht lasted aboot an boar longer, th* attention of oar men being mainly directed te their cannon, whioh was doing us small damage, although several timaa they fired bombshells oat ofit at oar troope on the hillside. The firing became slack, and, aa the cam of darkncMoaaa over tfcoaoeoe, il ceaaod entirely. Few of oar men slept, although thej were worn oat with fatigue, and but few of them regretted that the enemy had taken their cannon and fled next morning. No sign of them wu left except the smouldering ashes of . their destroyed stores. There was about fifteen wounded on our side, 1 th-ee of whom have died sinee, and one was killed on the field. His name was Nelson Bogg*. and he belonged to the 14th Kentucky. The other dead belonged to the 42d Ohio. The 22d 1 Kentucky regiment, although as warmly en- 1 gaged as any of them, lost not a man, and had bat three wounded. They were members of j Company E, and belonged, I believe, to Lewis and Greenup counties, Ky. The loss of the ] enemy cannot be correctly ascertained, as they were borne off the field, as soon as they fell, 1 by their friends, but a good many of them were found piled in indeoent carelessness together, and only covered by a few dry leaves, after the fight was over. Skbokaht. , Moifar i!t tbb Sopth.?A Norfolk correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch gives thli i graphic picture of the difficulties attending the present condition of Confederate ourrency : ' "Leaning over the oounter a punled volunteer was endeavoring to reekon up the ebange {'ust paid out by the sleek-haired clerk. Before lim lay a quantity of mutilated bills, ragged and dirty pieces of paper, bits of card-board, printed checks, a tew copper pennies, milktickets, postage-stamps, ana other interesting specimens of the present outrageous 'coin of the realm.' Over and over aga!n the puzzled volunteer essayed to count the pile of villainous currencv. and over and over again he failed to find it satisfactory. It vu too much for bis rustio arithmetic ; the problem was too difficult ; to solve upon only ten fingers. The bystanders laughed. The money was spread out upon the how ca?e as young ladies lav cards upon a table in telling fortunes, and the soldier stood before it searchingly examining every piece. 'Do you call this money?' he asked, taking up a small yellow parallelogram looking very Tike the brass card on the top of sar line box. 'Do you call this money ?' holding u{? an advertisement of fine Havana cigars?'and this,' a bit for 15 cents, in which some weak-minded printer had gone raving mad in different kinds of type, lGood for one shave , (reading slowly) Did, the barber?' 'Do you call this money '' The sleek haired olerk was puttied also. It'll I pass all over town ; indeed it will, sir.' Once more the soldier scrutinited the ragged and incongruous pile, and grasping it in one hand, soliloquised : 'So this is money?money1 ha! I oall it stuff. Why a man might hold bis hand full, and then have but 37 oents in money.' " WHXRSABOCTS 07 CSITTKNDKN AND HI* Rebels ?The Knoxville (Tenn.) Register, Feb.
