About this time, news was received that
Gen. Gates was on his way with a North
em array to assist them: this greatly en
couraged them to persevere ; for by: break
ing up that encampment, they would pre-
vent it from jcausing any embarrassment !
to Gen. Gates, or giving any assistance to
Cornwallis. ' 'f ' :
They, therefore, collected all the men
they could in ijowan, and perhaps some
from Mecklenburg. Air were under! the
command of Gen. Rutherford. Having
crossed the Catawba, they were joined by
Captains Bpwmari and D'obsoti from
Burke ; and Gen. Rutherford nowifinding
himself atthe head of a considerable body
of men, moved towards the enemy's camp :
about 300 mpunted infantry many pf them
officers, formed the advance guard, while
the infantryfollowed on under the officer
in command. The advance party, after
a march of 5 miles, having reacied.the
enemy's camp, reconnoitred it without be
ing discovered. Some difference 6f opin

musket several times.
The loss of the tories was great in men,
and all their camp equipments. U A num
ber of-horses was taken, some of which
had teen stolen in the Forks of the Yad-'
k"n. And to return to the region, the peo
ple there were much distressed at this
time; for Col. Bryant, thinking this a fa
vorable time while so many men were
absent, to assemble his friends, who were
ready to march at an hourrs notice, gave
the word and formed his camp a few miles
from Riddle's ferry on the big' Yadkin,
He soon found himself at the head of a

great difficulty keep bis throne, as a formida

retreat in the same' way. The jenemy,

: no rallying point, their consternation in-
creased ; and the quick succession of de

rendered their confusion complete. The

of Bryant's movements reached Ruther

quarter were dismissed to return and de

They left the &mp the morning after
the battle, and those on horsebap reached
home that night. The next morning was
.the time appointed by Captains Caldwell,
Nicholas, and Sam'l. Reed, to meet at
some place in the Fork to oppose Bryant.
Those who had returned from Lincoln
after a short rest, went to fneet their
friends, and a camp was formed two or
three miles Iast of Anderson's' Bridge, on
Hunting Creek, known ever since by the
name of Liberty Hill ; it was five or six
miles from Bryant's ycamp. When I this
encampment commenced they were not
100 in number ; but men continued to col
lect during the day, and in the evening
they were joined by a company of Light
Horse, fromthe Mountains, commanded
by Capt. Doak. At night theylnumoered
between 200 and 30Q, and had taken
about 20 prisoners on their way -to! join
Bryant's camp. j ;
They were in constant expectation that
he would attack them, and made every
effort to give him a warm reception, and
convince him how much it frould cost
him to gratify his friends in their thirst fbr
plunder. In the mean time he; received a
true account of the fate of his friends in

alluding to some understanding they had
before between them. Their guns were
unloaded, and each took ja tree for shelter.
The whig1 succeeded in loading first and
somewhere north of the central line, for
the purpose of making an impression up
on the public mind that a northern route,
for the Western Turnpike, would be most
beneficial to those for whose interest the
work has been projected ; and whereas,
such an impression would be extremely
erroneous, inasmuch, as the lower route,
the greater would be the travel therefore
