The Abingdon Virgimnn^ .of Friday, contains the following particulars of the battle at Saltville: v , " The enemy reached the vicinity of the Salt Works on Sunday morning* between 0 and 10 o'clock, when the fight commenced near the ' resdenca, of Mr. Saunders, comraonlv knowu as Gov. Sauodeio. Prisoners captured concur in the statement that Bnrbriage had three full brig: ades, iricluding one negro regiment, in all about 4000 men, about 2500 of whom were in the figbt The number engaged on our side did not probably exCe'ed 20Q0. As has been the x Yankee custom, the negroes were put in front, and were held to their places as long as it was possible to do so by the havonets of their brethren with whiter skins, but "blacker hearts The reserve and detail battalions were under the command of Colonels KobertPieston, ofM ont' gomery, Smith, of Taacwelf, and James T. Preston, of Washington. The whole under the command of Gen/ A. E. Jackson. Gen. Gilmer's men had disputed Burbridgc's mhance for several <days, and added new laurels to an already enviable reputation. Men never fought with more bravery and determination, as did also the command of Gen. Williams, the lat tor having came in after the tight bad commenced, but before it bad grown hot and Virions. But all concur, both officers and men, in the meed of praise to the reserves and derail ed men, who had been hastily drawn together for the occasion. All the benerals say they fought with all the coolness, self possession and bravery of regulars, and it was mainlr to their gallantry and Coolness that the victory was so complete, This shows that the blood of King's Mountain still flows in the veins of the yeomanry of Southwestern. Virginia. Gen. Breckinridge reached the field about the close of the fight, arid Gen. Vaughn, with his own, as well as Gen. Duke's and Gen. Crosby's brigades, reached just in time to hearthe shout of victor}' and to'engage in the pursuit of the flying Yankees. Gen. Vaughn had been , hastily ordered from Tennessee,where he had been fighting and driving back tbe enemy un dor Gillom for several days, and only succeeded, after a forced marcb, in reaching the scene of action after tttfe battle had been fought. Had ho remained ju Tennessee, Gillem's fore? would have been gobbled up before this time, and as his face is again in that direction, we will be disappointed if he does not do so before many days. , Our loss in the engagement is variously estimated, but the nearest we can get at the truth iiS about tweuty killed and about sixty wounded. The loss of the enemy is estimated at from four to six hundred in killed and wounded, and some forty or fifty prisoners. Burbridge was greatly deceived, as he ex pecte^to tuKe.tne worics without much difficulty. He did'nt expect 16 encounter any but a force of some four or five hundred reserves, and also _ expected the co-op?ration of Gillem from Tennessee, but Vaughn bad "scotched the snake." 'After he found hiMelf whipped, ho asked .Mr. Saunders what troops those were who fought so desperately, and, on being |Hold that they were tne reserves and detailed men, he swore . be did'nt believe it Col. Hanson is somewhat skeptical on the subject / The men fought like veterans and were high lv complimented by the General commanding. ? The oduun hitfjflrtO attached to reserves and 1 detail forces is removed now, since all hive acted so gallantly, and as one of .the Yankee wounded remarked in the hospital, ,kif your militia fight so well and stand so staunchly^ I* do not want to meet yoor regulars." This is compliment enough for our brave men who acted . , v io nobly. 1 Tbe enemy advanced through, Thompson's Gap and retreated by the same route. Gen. Hanson, from Kentucky, who is severely (mortally) wounded and in our hands, said we killed and wound? d nbont one thousand.? Gen. Hanson is a brother ot Gen. linger Hanson of the Confederatevarrcy, killed in one of the Tennessee battles. The Yankeo wounded say their commanders told them they wonld encounter only raw militia, would run without offering any serious opposition. , j CAMfM DAILY Jil-RXAL SATURDAY ITS <? 1. R lit'?'?

During the progress of a jubilee over Sheridan's victo" ry, MeUellan wus called upon by the crowd, which he briefly addressed as follows: My friends: 1 caun-'t refrain from expressing my gratification for your kindness at i his great demoifstra uoii in uenan 01 tno t.niou Liio U?>n-titution and tlie laws.

You surely will not expect me t<? add;ess you at length at this time, and will excuse me ior not n.ukiug a speech mid a low me to retire, lientiemen, ug-in I thrt?\k you, and bid you good night. Over this Gkeeley growls and grumble in this wise: Whai snlion silence over Sheridan's victory!. What heartless indifference to tlie wounds of the twenty-five hundred braves in the Shenandoah! What unpnirioilo, What inhuman neglect ofu great victory, and most precious political event!

A numbor of stray Brigadiers, I am told were picked up and put in the ranks. ThePhotels and faro banks sheltered many rcfinquents. Among the reports circulating here is one to the effect that a prominent officer here is in favor of arming the negroes. You need not attach much faith to it though."

It is scarcely necessary to point out that the small import of unmanufactured tobacco in 1862, was caused by the American war. - "'; ?- . Misouri.?Jefferson.
