WAR NEWS.

There is no war news of interest.  The Yankees are still busy lying over their disaster at Reams’ station.

A dispatch from Louisville on the 30th announces the capture of a company of Yankees six miles below Gallatin by Wheeler.

Wheeler’s force is estimated at from five to twelve thousand men.2
