By the Central train Mr. Silas Gregory and Mr. Floyd arrived, to whom we are indebted for late papers. Our friead Gregory was home buta short time since. He got back to his company (Bayou City Guards) just in time for the 'ate battles, being in the passage of Thoioughfere Gap, Manassas, South Mountain and Sharpsburg, where he was wounded and taken prisoner, and a'terwards pa* " roiled.

We waited until four o'clock, when no attack having been made, the conclusion was arrived at that the expedition, so far as tbe land force was concerned, had failed; and orders were given to fall back to Red Fiah Bar, so as to be out of sight of the Federals by daylight, that they might not see how we were rig- ged up.
