As our cavalry scouts advanced within a mile of the town, the rebels, who were concealed behind trees and bushes, opened a fearful and deadly fire upon them, causing many a brave fellow to writhe in the dust. Our skirmishers were at once dismounted and deployed, with the expectation of flanking the enemy. As fast as our men advanced, however, the chivalrous foe retreated, endeavoring to draw our men toward the town. Finding it impossible to get

Rations were cooked and in haversacks by day-light on the morning of the eighteenth instant, when we took up the line of march to Leek's tan-yard. After marching a short distance, the line of march was changed.
