The Daily Dispatch: October 26, 1861., [Electronic resource], By the Governor of Virginia.--a Proclamation. (search)
in large force 25 miles below Ironton. Nothing definite, however, is known as to their number or designs. A dispatch to the Republican, dated at Syracuse, Mo., on the 18th inst., states that Gen. Price has acquired new hope from the prospect of large reinforcements. It is expected that he will defeat Gen. Fremont's army, divide his forces, and take St. Louis and Jefferson City. The Republican learns that the work on the fortifications around St. Louis is to be suspended. Guns, however, are to be mounted and everything completed within eight days. The Republican also reports a skirmish on the Iron Mountain on the 17th inst. The Southerners were driven back with heavy loss. Bowling Green, Ky., Oct. 24 --The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 19th inst., learns that Gen Fremont will be removed on the 22d inst. Gen Hunter is to succeed Gen. Fremont. The Cincinnati Gazette says that Gen. Fremont has been removed by the positive order of President Lincoln.
al Burnside, notwithstanding the numerous obstacles he was unexpectedly obliged to encounter, and of the great preparations we have made for hemming in the enemy upon all sides, there will, we hope, be little disposition to sustain the infamous conspiracy which is now gasping in the last stages of a rapid decline. There are now at Leavenworth, Kansas, some fifteen thousand troops, with a large supply of cavalry and a fair proportion of artillery. The entire force that will accompany Gen. Hunter in his expedition will consist of about thirty-four thousand troops, and as they will march to the west of Missouri, through the Cherokee Nation, and enter Arkansas below Van Buren, it is supposed that they will have no difficulty in obtaining subsistence. They expect to march to the Cherokee Nation in ten days after leaving Leavenworth. The arrest of Gen. Stone for treason has taken the troops on the Upper Potomac by surprise. There is little regret, however, that Gen. Gorman succ
ntations and the dwellings of their masters, and whaterver they could not convert to some bensficial purpose they destroyed. All the cotton they could lay their hands upon they were disposing of for a mere nothing. This the rebels to a great degree. About 4,000 of these people were in quarters at Head. Gen. Hunter's expedition Leavenworth, Feb. 11, 1862. --The greatest activity prevails at Fort Leavenworth in making preparations for the expedition to start from here under Gen Hunter. Troops and supplies are being concentrated in the Southern portions of the State, and the indications appear favorable for an early advance. Seven regiments of cavalry, four regiments of infantry, and three full batteries of artillery, with Parrott and Wiard guns, are now en routs from the East, and are daily expected to join the expedition, which will be of the most formidable yet organized during the war. Maunchauce like Stories. St. Louis, Feb. 12. --The Federal gunboats
on of it, had crossed the James river, and camped last night a few miles from Buford's Depot, on the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad, 37 miles distant from Lynchburg. The raiding party, after burning Campbell C. H. it is supposed, will endeavor to effect a junction with Averill's command west of Lynchburg. Averill's force is estimated at 6,000, and prisoners who were captured in Amherst say that they belong to Stahl's command, which is the left wing of Averill's command, and 2,000 strong. Hunter is reported to be moving on Lynchburg via Lexington, but he will necessarily have to move slow, as his infantry and wagon trains cannot be brought over the mountain road with celerity. Of the movement of our troops it is needless to speak, as a few days' developments will render it unnecessary. I shall probably remain at this place until communication is securely and permanently established, as my facilities for sending you the news from this quarter will be as good here as in Lynchburg. B
eavy engagement to encounter, and all this before our combinations can become known to the public at large. With the army moving in the Shenandoah Valley General Hunter has assumed command in person, and is inspiriting the troops by his persevering activity his presence, and his counsel. Yet he has not cut loose entirely froct their movements in accordance with the plan he is provided with to go by. The following is the earliest intelligence received at the North of the result of Hunter's advance: Staunton, Shenandoah Valley, June 6th, 1864. Our movements here have in every way been an entire success. We have thoroughly whipped andt little damage. He left here at 7 A M. for Versailles. I start in pursuit with a fresh force this morning. No official report has yet been received from Gen Hunter. Edwin M Stanton, Secretary of War. Affairs in Louisiana. Alexandria, La, has been partially destroyed by the Yankees, twenty-six houses having been
Gen Hunter's operations. --The fugacious Hunter, who is now making the best of his way out of the Valley, has his opinions. A correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, writing from Vicksburg to that paper a substance of a conversation with him after he had visited Gen. Banks, records what Hunter's opinions are: With regHunter's opinions are: With regard to Gen. Banks, he said that he was disappointed in him as a military commander, for, judging him by his conduct and course as Speaker in Congress, he had formed a favorable opinion of him, and concluded that he would make a good General. He is of the decided opinion that cotton has corrupted to some extent both the army aalizes at the rate of five thousand per cent! If this did come from a source as reliable and authentic it would seem but reasonable to scout it as absorb. Gen. Hunter is also of the decided opinion that the Government owes it to itself to adopt a retaliatory policy on account of the Fort Pillow butcherly, and that the most vi
ircumstances would allow. One officer had been placed under arrest for brutality towards the prisoners. The distance from Richmond to the point at which they escaped is about forty miles, and they walked the whole route. They express the opinion that Sheridan is a used up man, and will not give the Confederates any more annoyance for some time to come. From Lynchburg. Passengers from Lynchburg yesterday state that the utmost uncertainly prevails there as to the whereabouts of Hunter and his command. It is not known to the public whether they have gone towards Salem, Fineastle, or Lexington. A report was prevalent last evening that they had made good their escape; but at all events the main object of the expedition was defeated. [from our own correspondent.] Lynchburg, Va, June 21. Rumors were as plentiful yesterday as battle field plunderers after an engagement, and owing to the rapid advance of our army in pursuit of the enemy it is extremely difficult t
The New York Tribune, of the 14th, has an article on "Hunter's victory." The white coat philosopher, Greeley, had not then heard of the stampede of his friend Hunter. The article of the Tribuneshows that Hunter's chief object was the capture Hunter's chief object was the capture of Lynchburg, and our forces did not drive back this most cruel and barbarous of all Yankee invaders one moment too soon. We copy the Tribunearticle entire: The victory of Gen Hunter near Staunton, on the 3d, is an evidence how heavily the bae that it was not given up because of one repulse. When Gen Hunter was assigned to the command in West Virginia and the Shewas sent to the rear, communications were abandoned, and Gen Hunter went forward with a force and celerity that seem to have Virginia and Georgia. The junction of crook's force with Hunter's shows that there is no enemy of consequence in Western Vy the enemy almost without a There is no news from Gen Hunter more than the 9th, at which time his forces were in des
thus far believed to have been destroyed are those at Burkesville Junction, Greenbay, Meherrin, Keysville, Drake's Branch and Mossingford. From Lynchburg. The telegraphic dispatch in another column gives all the intelligence we have from Hunter's flying command. From this it appears that the Yankees would have been annihilated but for the delay in delivering an order! That slow Adjutant, or courier, or whatever he was, ought to be presented with a pair of spurs. It is, however, some gratification to learn that Hunter was compelled to blow up his ammunition train, although by having thus thrown off a dead weight the chances of his being overtaken by our forces are somewhat lessened. List of wounded men who fell into the hands of the enemy after the battle of the Wilderness. A lady of Fredericksburg sends us the following list of Confederate soldiers who fell into the enemy's hands wounded and were carried to Fredericksburg. Those whose death is not mentioned have b
n 1863, in advance of his Northern aggressive movement from the Rapidan, Gen Lee established convenient depots of provisions, from point to point, down said valley, by which his army of one hundred thousand men, on limited ratios, was enabled to reach the bountiful supplies of the loyal States of Maryland and Pennsylvania. But how is it now? From Harper's Ferry up to Staunton, a distance of one hundred and thirty miles, the Shenandoah Valley has been thoroughly scoured and cleaned out by Gen Hunter, while the country beyond Staunton, rewards Lynchburg and the Southwest, has been as au thoroughly harvested by Generals Averill and Crook. The rebel army in Richmond therefore, cannot move northward, because the roads and all the facilities in that direction for army transportation are destroyed, and because the country is exhausted of its cattle and corn, pigs and sheep, bacon and poultry, everything. On the other hand, the army of Gen Grant stands now across the roads on the south
