MUNFORDVILLE, KY., October 6, 1863.

Captain A. C. SEMPLE,

Assistant Adjutant-General, Louisville:

Information from Cave City says rebels have left Glasgow; gone toward Burkesvile. Have not learned what number of Martin's men were captured. Rebels took private deposits from bank. No other damage done. If Colonel Spaulding has not moved it will be well to send him through Columbia if he is mounted.
