The artillery, with the exception of Walton's battalion, has already been located between Cub Run and Stone Bridge. The cavalry has fallen back a little and they are now building stables and houses near Centreville. Gen. Stuart will remain in the advance. It is probable that Gen.

We shall probably hear very shortly of our army, or a portion of it, being thrown across to the northern shore instead; in which event, we are bound to demolish the whole posses of Yankee marauders and Dutch infidels, who infest that region. The tide of wrath has been slowly — too slowly, we have thought at times, but surely, as we have always believed — rolling towards the long looked for forward movement of Gen. Johnston's command. It is now a fixed fact. There are to be no more halls and back tracks, but quick licks and a clear field. From St. Louis — the Confederate cause Increasing.
