They fled during the night to Maryland and Pennsylvania; but most of them were ultimately captured. During that night, Col.

Brown, of course, remained awake and alert through the night, discomfited and beyond earthly hope, but perfectly cool and calm. Said Gov. Wise, in a speech at Richmond soon after: Col. Washington said that Brown was the coolest man he ever saw in defying death and danger. With one son dead by his side, and another shot through, he felt th

Lee, arriving from the North with a considerable Rebel force,etreated thirty miles to the Gauley, and was not pursued; Gen. Lee being soon after recalled to take a command on the coast, and Gov. Wise ordered to report at Richmond. Gen. Lee, before leaving the North, had made a strong reconnoissance in forf September, during which Col. John A. Washington, one of Gen.
