CAMP ELKWATER. VA. Oct. 22. 1861.
Eo. JomsAi.: Tho dofmnt nttitudo of tlic
rebels in this pnrt of the Old Dominion has
been lniHlonod, and but fw of tho many
"Bcceshors" iro left to trouble us. Our time
necessarily hangs hoavily on our lianJR.and
to this fact you can attributo this fecblo ef
fort to aoquaint you with tho whoroabouta
of one of Wood County's soldiers, and a
constant reader of your valrtablo paper
w hen at home. ' Vo aro keeping a sharp
lookout for tho rebels, who aro reported to
be in somo strength at Big Spring, Rome
twenty milos south-east hf this camp. Pick
et duty hero is vastly different from the
shaiu guards wo used to keep at Camp Pen
nison and elsewhere. Kvery faculty of the
sentinel is in constant use to detect the ap
proach of an armed foe, or tho presence of
a slragier, Tho ponulty for negligence in a
bullet from the gun of a concealed foo, or
the capture of a whole company.
Grandly beautiful aro all things that sur
round us here. How I long for some maric
power to paint tho beauties of the scene.
For weeks tho flush that mantles the decoy
ing year lm been increasing; like the march
of a mighty army, the gaudy colors havo
day by day passed still further up tho hills,
until from mountain huso to summit, bannrrs
of cvory huo are hung out. The hazy at
mosphere peculiar to our Indian autumns in
tho West, hangs eterually over these rocks
and crags, and with it now appear such rain
bow splendors as I havo never neon else
whore in nature. Tho emerald of tho pino
and hemlock, tho golden muplu, the crimson
of the ash, and tho scarlet and purple of the
oak, interspersed with negative colors, give
to tho lulls the appearance of vast mosaics.
And theu our sunset scenes they assume
a.11 phases imaginable, and vary from tho
soft, voluptuous beauty of an Italian sky to
the thunder-vhaken tompeatu which at times
pall those mountain volloyg with an Egyp
tian darkness. All th's is very pWaant and
agreeable., when connected by pleasing as
sociations, or Keen under ordinarily ugreett
ble circumstances ; but I doubt very much
if tho most enthusiastic lover of tho beauti
ful would feel much deuire to describe, the
lines uf beauty that enters intotltu forma
tion of these mountains, after a tramp of
over two hundred miles through sunshine,
rain and storm, with haversack, knapsack
and gun, as the troops in this part of the
State ha ve done.
Our present camp is located in a di-light-l'nl
valley on tho batikn of th; Tyya' l:t Val
ley river, 7:" miles from Stanton, and 2.5 from
Monterey, and is surrouiiJed by pictures-iu6
mountains from three to 'wo bundled feet
in iiigiu. The forces hero in part consist of
llowu's Battery, (i pieces, Loomis' Michigan
Buttery, Robinson's Cavalry, Co. A, 1st Ohio,
6th Ohio, Lieut. Col. Anderson commanding,
3d Ohio, Col. Marrow, and the following In
diana regiments : 7tii, Col. Duinont; 9th,
Col. Melroy; 13th, Col. Sullivan i 15th, Col.
Waggoner, and 17th, Col. Lloskill. Add to
these tho 21th, 25th, 32d Ohio regiments,
together with tho 11th Indiana and a part of
the 2d Virginia, at Camp Kimball, and you
have the entiro L'nion force in this vicinity.
The health of the troops is excellent in
fact tho majority of the men here are in hot
ter health than whilo at homo. Tho 6th
regiment, (Guthrie Grays) I learn from I)rs.
Loring and Ames, have only six sick iu their
hospital; one of tho number being a private
of our regiment, who was shot throuuh tho
top of iiis head in tho engagement at Elk
water, when Capt. Uenec, with fifty-two men,
were taken prisoners. He cannot recover.
No intelligence has been received from
Capt. Bcnso or any of tho men sinco their
capture. The officers and men are doubtless
prisoners in the tobucco factories nt ULch
mond. ' , Brig. Gen. J. J. Reynolds, commanding
this brigade, is from Lafayette, Ind., a West
Pointer, and a very ellicient and skillful of
fioer. His staflf consists in part of Capt.
Isaiah B.-McDonald, of Columbia City, Ind.,
Adjt. Gen. S. Rose, Lafayette, Ind., Capt.
John Levering, Lafayette, Brigade Quarter
master, Capt. Win. C. Sankertou, Lafayette,
Brigado Commissary, Dr. Thompson, of In
dianapolis, Brigade Surgeon, and Capt. Hill
Anderson, of our regiment (Ohio Cth), - .
The gentlemen comprising tho staff, like
the Brigadier General, are all tcetotallers-r-Borrielhing,
I will venture to say, that cannot
bo said of any other brigade command, The
General is over vigilant. Duly last week he
went ihe grand rounds outsido of tho pick
ets, making a rcconnoisanco within two
miles of the enemy. At Big Springs, the

The Battle of Edwards' Ferry.
A Special dispatch of tbo 22d ult, to the
Now York Tribune, gives the following ac
count of the battle of Edwards' Ferry, which
la tho most complete and connected that has
yet reached us:
A gentleman attached to Colonel Dukers'a

lars: Two bnttalionB, 1,000 men of tho Cal
ifornia, the Tammany and Massarh lsitti

at Conrad's Ferry and landed. Pickets were
thrown out, and a largo force of rebels d
covered. About 3 o clock Baxte 's.Owen's

No cannon was used by the enemy in the
engagement and tho Union forces got but
ono across. There were seven In position
on this sido, two at Conrad's Ferry, and fivo
at Klwards' Forry, about six milos opart.
At the latter, two scows and a cannon boat
were used to convey troops across nil day.
A considerable number had assembled on
tho Virginia side of this ferry when the
battle commenced, but it was nut consideiel
safe to re enforce Col. Baker from thatpo'nt.
It took each scow, with fifty men, over an
hour to make a trip: so that much vaMablo
time was lost, owing to the bin ted meat s
of transit.
Col. Dovins of the MasR.u-huctta Rogimcnt
escaped td this sido by swimming the river
and many of the troops foil wed his example.
Several were drowned in tho attempt, the
river being fifteen feM deep.
The enemy was seen in and around a forti
fication ' opposite IHwards' Ferry in the
morning, and tho guns on this side were
opened upon thorn under th personal direc
tion of General Stone. At tho first lire tho
rebels struck their tents and (led.
Tho loss on our side is unquestionably
very large larger than that of tho enemy.
Co!. Baker's remains, escorted by a squad
of Van Allen's Cavalry, under command of
Capt. Voting, and accompanied by deceased's
sou, Lieut. Baker, and his brother, Dr. Bnkor,
both of whom were in the engagement; ar

No additional particular touching the

Tho conduct of our men was excellent, and
the disaster, though great, was not so great
as at first supposed.
Capt. F. G. Young of New York, aid to
Col. Baker, and who was with him when
ho died, gives tho following account:
Gen. Stone ordered Col. Baker, on Sunday
evening, to have his brigade ready to move
at 7 o'clock on Monday morning. Tho brig
ade was then stationed five miles from Con
rad's Ferry. At 3 o'clock in tho morning,
however, a messenger from Gen. Stono 01
derod tho first battalion, under Lieutenant
Colonel Wi8tar's to move immediately, 60 as
to bo at Conrad's Ferry at suiiriMO, which
they did, and reported themselves to Gen.
Orders were then tent from Gen. Stone to
tho battalion, to stand fast until they should
hear heavy firing in front and then to cross.
About an hour afterwards, musketry having
boon heard pravioiisly, dead an 1 wounded
bagari to ba brought over; At 10 o'clock
the number of killed and wounded brought
iu was increased. Gen. Stono ordered Col.
Baker to tako command of the foroM on
both Bides of tho river at thai, placc. and to
bring up his brigado and tho Tammany regi
ment, commanded by Col, Coggswell, which
was in camp about threo miles distant, aud
to cross immediately.
Capt. Young carriod thi ordors to the
Tammany Uigimcut, and the whole force
proceeded about a mile down tho river,
ready to cross. We found two scows, each
could carry from forty ta fifty men, and
managed to get from the canal a dug-out
which would tako sixty or seventy more.
Six companies of the first battalion o1 tho
California Regiment, three pieces of artillery
with men unit horses, belonging to the Tam
many Regiment, with Col, Baker, Col, Cojrge
well, Lieut. Col. Wister, Assist. Adj. Gen.
Harvey, and Capt Young, got to tho island,
where we were io re 1 by a battory of the
Second Rhode Island Artillery with two
small howitzers. Tho passa.ro to the island
was very difficult, with our insufficient means
of transportation, the dittanco being quarter
of a mile and the current swift. Wo poled
oursclven up the eastern shore a long dis
tance, thence wero drifted down to the land
ing, From tho island to the Virginia shore,
our only means of transportion was ono
scow and a metallic boat of little or no ser
vice. We landed under a Btcep bank, 100
feet bigh, covered with rocks and jiinglo.
Scrambling ' up the bank, wo found an
open field of tix acres, with, thick woods on
three sides, out of which came a constant,
irreguler firing from the enemy.

Colonel Baker, who was during the whole
engagement, perfectly oool and bravo, on

shot from tho wood, several balls making
fatal wounds, and all boliovcd to havo been

Christ Coming to Judgement.
Tho evidence that Christ conies to judge
ment in tho minds of men, is of the strongest
nature. When tho mind or soul becomes
lost in tho beauties of tho Savior's kingdom,
by a Bteady course of study and adoption of
tho principles of tho Savior of mankind, an
embodiment of the pureRt kind is forced
there, from which tho man 1 is enabled to
to look down upon the actions of men and
judge correctly of their motives. Thus, by
bulincinrj, men aro saved from death, as they
aro enabled to think, tvrlte and speak In
Christ's name, thoughts and feelings thai
connect their names to immortality. Should
the elements become turbulent, and the
weaker portion ol nun's being 'made to
strive for mastery, the purer love of the
heavenly kingdom comes und spenks "peac
bu still," mid a calm i.r. ,atl8 in the heart
that hiinii(!ii" and attunes the soul to itn

doubt and indecision, the clear hi"id convic
tions of h!s grace enters tho heart, and n
course of action is at once decided upen
that bears ovidonoo of :i knowledge of the
truth, and a olearnesi of th' judgment,
which can only be attributed to Him who
bits abovo, upon tho crowning point of all
good, and looks down upon the aetioi k l
men and judges and prompt thciu to woik
out glory in his iiiuno. And is it too much
for us to acknowledge, when wo eat br drink
or partake in any way of tho goodness of
God, coming to us from him, that we mny
worship him in spirit, and in truth? Can
wo not and bhould we not have an eye of
Faith continually upon the promises offer
