life was infused into all branches of the service. About this time, the command of General Longstreet, which had wintered in East Tennessee, was transferred by rail to General Lee's army, thus uncovering his left and leaving it guarded only by cavalry. The scope of this sketch will not admit of a statement of the forces of the Department, further than to say that Vaughan's cavalry was on the East Tennessee front, Morgan's at Abingdon, Jenkins' at or near the Narrows of New River, and W. L. Jackson's on the extreme right at Warm Springs — the largest command not exceeding a good brigade; while the only infantry in the Department was Echols' brigade at Union Draught, in Monroe county, and Wharton's brigade at the Narrows of New River--twenty-six miles north of Dublin. Such was the disposition when information was received that General Crook was advancing in the direction of Dublin, with a strong force, from the Kanawha. General Breckinridge was engaged in preparations to receive

al Lee, having fallen back from Spotsylvania, arrived at Hanover Junction, and in person thanked and complimented General Breckinridge for his victory. In fact the whole Army of Northern Virginia was full of his praise. The veterans of Lee and Jackson greeted him with cheers whenever he came within sight, and wherever he moved among them, in camp or in line of battle, it was a perfect ovation. At Hanover Junction began that series of splended strategic movements by General Lee to check Gener follows: Breckinridge's corps of Echols' and Gordon's divisions, Early's corps of Rodes' and Ramseur's divisions, with a corps of cavalry commanded by General Ransom, the constitution or numbers of which I cannot give accurately. There were W. L. Jackson's brigade, McCausland's brigade, Vaughan's brigade, Imboden's brigade, and a number of smaller organization, the whole being about three thousand cavalry, most of it known as wild cavalry — of the inefficiency of which there was constant comp

e East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, a few miles west of New River. One of his first acts was to make a horseback tour along his front, extending from Warm Springs on the northeast to Abingdon, involving a ride of three hundred miles in wintry weather. His infantry consisted of two brigades, that of Gen. John Echols, at Monroe Draught, near the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, and that of Gen. G. C. Wharton, at the Narrows of New River. At Warm Springs was a cavalry brigade under Gen. W. L. Jackson, and other detachments of cavalry were at other widely separate stations, of which there were sixteen and with which communication was chiefly by courier. Gen. John H. Morgan, who had reorganized the remnant of his command, was in the vicinity of Abingdon, and there also were the brigades of Gen. H. L. Giltner and Geo. B. Cosby, chiefly composed of Kentuckians, while other bodies of cavalry not necessary to enumerate, detached and of smaller numbers, were disposed with reference to sc

of these losses, some of whom were without a change for upwards of a month. That they are brave and entitled to the respect and sympathy of those whose homes have not been overrun by the enemy is shown by their heroic conduct at the late battle of the Alleghany. I believe that Col. Hansbrough's battalion is composed entirely of refugees. Col. Jackson's regiment and Major Reger's battalion nearly so. A braver little band never rallied to defend the honor of a country. They are too proud themselves to ask for aid, but that need not prevent the liberal and generous who have plenty to voluntarily contribute to supply their wants Articles of clothing, provisions, or money for warded to Staunton to Col. W. L. Jackson, of the 31st Virginia regiment, Major A. G. Reger, of Reger's battalion, and Major G. D. Camden, jr., of Hansbrough's battalion, (in the absence of Col.

Winchester on Tuesday, with 5,700 men, and 100 boats, each calculated to carry 12 men, and marched to Martinsburg, where he was reinforced by 2,100 men. He was also reinforced by upwards of 2,000 men from Charlestown yesterday. He advanced on Williamsport and commenced to shell the town from a position three miles below it. The fire was returned by Best's battery, and both fires ceased in the evening, after lasting several hours. At the latest accounts all was quiet up there. Jackson left five hundred men at Winchester, and forty-three at Charlestown. His object was to make a dash for the supplies of salt, sugar, &c., at Williamsport. He has lost his opportunity. Gens. Hamilton and Williams, and several regiments from Frederick, have arrived at Williamsport to checkmate his plan. The shells thrown at Col. Geary's camp yesterday were clearly intended to cover the above movement. At half-past 1 o'clock it is reported the rebels have destroyed Dam No. 5. No l
