To reach i "Tolnov's" the ('oal river was fhr dcld ninet't-sevent time,-, during the niglht ,'t' the 11th inst., under a vio lent storm of rain, and in the dark ness Fo profound that one's hand was invisible. A orch had to be ..sed at every crossing ,,f the river. The Laurel Mountain had to be crossed i in file, without a horse falling of a man dismounting, where no one be fore, even among the inhabitants of con- that mountain, had ever dared to and tread this rugged, steep and preci ional pitous path on horseback. Pe to For many miles the road was over le.- hung by the loftiest precipices and Lence skirted by impenetrable thickets of the laurel, and in the very region pub- where the traitorous sons of Virginia is or and marauding Yankees had colier- ted for ambush, plunder and blood. Thng, Though in the nest of traitors, our other men, with the rapids of the river 1 it to boiling at their feet, a violent storm ding howling over their head, the utter I 'W.- darkness rendered still deeper by I cise, the glare of 'the torch, with fearless i :om- hearts and good wills, continued the 1 ated journey through the most broken and t wild scenery of Western Virginia. About three o'clock at night, on c de- the 12th inst., we were informed that e about two miles below us, at Mr. 1 Pack's, the enemy would be found a au- numbering about five hundred.

We immedi De- ately went in pursuit, and after tray Fir- cling about twelve miles in full gal lop, found their tracks, with those of three small boys, whom they had carried off as prisoners. Then the " le. wildest exciteinment moved the troops. th Captain NH,,sser, with his company, hi om were ,rd,.. d to take the lead in the n.n pursuit and charge, and off in full c tra speed dashEld along his spendid con- b inand(.
