Jenifer and Adjutant Neal with 115 men of the 18th Ohio, Lieut. Mitchell the General’s son, of Kennett’s cavalry, Capt. Ewing and two lieutenants of the 21st Ohio, with 53 privates, were taken prisoners at Pulaski, Tennessee on last Friday by 100 of Morgan’s rebel cavalry after a fight of two hours and a half.
