) Gen. Early stormed the works around that town. There is no telegraphic communication thence with Richmond. Staunton, seventy miles off, presents the first telegraph. Yet almost before the smoke of the battle field had cleared away rumors of the result began to spread.--On Monday morning they pervaded the whole city, and described the actual condition of affairs with a minuteness and accuracy absolutely astounding. The number of guns and prisoners were designated, and it was stated that Milroy had escaped, which turns out to be true. We leave it to metaphyst to account for this singular phenomenon.

Milroy and his Yankee tribe still have possession, and, as you know, have had for six months. I did daring bravery and the Yankees like cowards." They put the officer under arrest for forty days. Milroy never goes out. He had his wife and four or five children — ugly little red-headed things — witht the women and children. The women were firm and faithful; never would give up one step.
