Eighth Regiment

From letters received by Mr. Enos Tichenor, from the 8th regiment we learn that both his sons were wounded and that all but about fifty of the regiment were captured. We hear it also reported that Lieut. Benton and most of the Blue Grass men were captured. We will probably hear from the regiment direct to-day.
