The recent raid upon the Virginia and East Tennessee Railroad wai an 'important affair, and prevented the reinforcement of Brae? by the rebel* during the recent terrible battle neai Murfreeshorti'. Nearly all the brigades between Knoxville and the Virginia State line—a distance of 130 miles—have Ιμηίι de stroyed, and the track more or less injured, so combined was the movement that the whole •flair «as completed in a comparatively short ■pace oftime, and as the rebels express it, the line was so much Injured "that it will take several weeks to re pair "The damages.'* The plan adopted is developed by the re sutls. From the facts we have we know that two bodies of Union troops, belonging to Gen. j Granger's aruiy of Kentucky, left Ktchmund, 1 Ky, shortly after Christmas, on an unknown expedition. It now appears that one portion ! of these forces took the left hand road run ning south from that place, and passing by ; Manchester, reached Mount Pleasant. Thence . it took the road over the mountains to Jones ▼Mie, struck the railroad at Union, a station situated about eleven miles from Bristol,which is near the State line between Virginia and Tennessee. At this point the work oi destruc tion was commenced. The telegraph lines to Richmond, Va., were first cut to prevent the rebel chiefs at their capital from knowing anything of what was going on beyond that point They next dashed up the line ns far as Bris tol, effectually destroying the railroad track as they went, and as they fell back burn ed the bridges over the streams. Arriving at the point where the railroad crosses the Hols ton and Watauga rivers, the Union troops burned those bridges, and beyond that point the rebels give no information. The tele graphic lines having been, as we have l>eforc stated, entirely (festroyed west of Bristol, of course the rebels could learn nothing beyond where the principal bridges had been burned. After crossing the river, ami passing Carter depot, the Union troops pushed on to Jones boro', thence to Greenville and Bull's Gap, now known as Rogerville Junction, altogether over a distance of over seventy miles, at the same time destroying all they could during their movements in the way of bridges, trestle work, Ac., along that line. Tills ended the line of operations of the coluuiu on the left. The other column left Richmond, Ky., by one of t he roads running south, and struck the Cumberland Mountains at a point nearer Cum berland Gap and farther to the west of that taken by tieir colleagues. Tliey next pro ceed to the State line, and crossing the Clinch river followed the turnpike road to Itogers ville. It was planned that this colu mil should arrive at this point about midnight, at which hour a train of cars was generally in the sta tion. Rogersville is a place of but small im portant, and contained but Tew inhabitants, who were easily secured and prevented from riving anv alarm. The branch of the railroad was also of mere I local use, and connected with the main line nt ! Bull'· Gap, or Rogersville Junction. The ; troops found the traiu at the station as had been supposed, and soon got it under way. Having switched off at Hull's Gap, they turn ed along the main line in a westerly direction until they arrived at Strawberry Plains, with in a few miles of Knoxville. All this was doue in a few hours, and then the work of de struction was performed as they wended their way back to the junction. Between New Mar ket and Morristown a long piece of trestle work, over half a mile in extent, was totally destroyed, and near Rnsselville another bridge met the same fate as its neighbors. Thus they fell IxicW. destroying as they went, until they again reached the Rogersville junction, at Bull's Gap, where tliey met with their friends who had been operating on the eastern part of the road. It will be seen that the operations extended within a few miles of the whole length of the line, and destroying the travel of greatly over a hundred miles In extent. A large force of troops had been sent by this route to reinforce Gen. Bragg, and this operation completely-cut off their chance of reaching Murflreesboro' by the Tennessee line. The Lynchburg Republican states that at the present time "the road Is taxed to its utmost capacity." The break, so extensive In its character, must have been disastrous to their arms, especially so when it is taken into con sideration that these troops from the rebel capital were wanted to alii in the resistance offered to Gen. Rosencran's march. No wonder, then, that the rebels at Mur freesboro' retreated from that point. .Their reinforcements had lieen delayed and cut off, and there was not the slightest chance that they could reach Murfreesboro' by anv other route in time to save the day. The plan is ! certainly a good one, and has been well car ried out. AH honor to him who conceived it. Were this the only railway line from the rebel capital to Tennessee the effect would in deed be most disastrous to the rebel cause ; for the communication could easily be kept brok en at one or another part of the route. To se- ! curely guard the whole line from raids would require more men than the rebels could well spare at this or any other time, and therefore the road would never be secure from destaic tlon. The rebels have, however, oilier lines of communication. The line between Danville, Va.,and Greens boro' N. C-, has been completed, and this gives a nearly direct route from Richmond. Va., to Columbus, S. C. This road by branch lines connects with the direct route from Charles ton, S. C., via Atlanta, Ga., to Chattanooga and Murfreesboro', Tenu. Another roate nine via Petersburg, Va., and Raleigh, N. C., and connects with the same line nt Greensboro.' If the line from Goldsboro' to Wilmington should have been repaired a nearly direct route is opened from Kiclimond Va., to Charleston, S. C., thence to Chattanooga and Murfreesboro.' Again, by aid of the Savan nah branch, another route Is opened from the rebel capital via Weldon, Goldsboro', Wil mington. Charleston and Savannah, thence by ; the Central Georgia Railroad to Chattanooga and Murfreesboro'. Thus it plainly appears that the operations, splendid as they are, have not entirely cut ofl' the supplies from the reb els, but will only delay thein by forcing them to go over a longer route of travel. However, it ha« done Its work for the present, and done it well. From the Richmond Examiner. Jan. 2. DKSTRrCTIOS OF IMPORTANT BRIDGES OX THE EAST TENNESSEE AND VIRGINIA RAIL ROAD BY I'SIOM CAVALRY — A DARING RAID. A body of Yankee. Cavalry numbering, it is reported some 4,000 men, made a raid on Mon day upon the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, and destroyed two important bridges —oue acro-g the ilolston and the other across the Watauga river. The bqjdgt* Across the Holstou at Blountvllle, was guards by 200 of our cavalry, who were completely surprised and made prisoners of without any resistanse. Ail account of the raid, which We find ill yes terday's Lynchburg Republican, savs : The enemy advanced within six miles of Bris tol. tin· Malni of the Virginia and Tennes see railroad, but retired without coming to the place. They afterwards advanced toward Joncsboro, and burned the bridge across the Watauga. At this place a small scouting par ty of citizens, hastily collected together, came up with them, and a brtsk skirmish occurred, in which one of the enemy was killed and two captured, who were brought into. Bristol on Tuesday. They belong to a Pennsylvania re giment, and we learn, reported their force at 5000. The enemy first entered Virginia between C'umlierland Gap and Pound Gap. and, pass ing through Estiville in Scott county, to Blountville. fulfilled their mission of bridge burning, and made a demonstration as if it was their intention to visit Bristol. This, as before stated, they failed to do, feariug, doubt less, to venture so far. They continued in the direction of Jonesboro. but It is stated by our scouts, who came into Bristol Tuesday night, that they were retreating over nearly tljp same route tliev had advanced. Tile distance from the point at which they entered the State line to Jonesltoro. is between ninety and one hundred miles. and the raid is certainly a most during one. andargues an au dacity in the enemy which they were not sup posed to possei·.' They are reported to have been piloted by a militia colonel of Washing ton county. Tennesse, by the name of Ward, who left his home on Friday, and met them at the mountains. The damage done to the railroad is serious, as, besides burning the bridges named, the track M torn up ill many places, and the sills and iron burned. The distance between the Wa tuga and Holston rivers is nine milps, and the burning of the bridges across these streams involves a loss of that distance in our rail road communications. It teill take nereral week» to repair \the damage*, ami they come at a time when the roail is taxed to it* utmost capacity. ISut few of the citizens along their march were molested by the Yankees, nor have we heard of that destruction of private property usual in their raids. The citizens of Bristol, we learn, behaved most nobly on this trying occasion. Old and young prepared with alacrity to meet the in vaders of their homes, and to protect their firesides front polution by the hireling foe. SAIL CLOTH. KLKlfllED ΓΙΛΪ MTk, WITH BLUE STRIPES.
