I saw in the Dispatch, of yesterday, that the story of the taking of Hall's Hill was believed in Richmond. Not a word of it was true; nor have there been above eight or ten of our men anywhere in the vicinity. I warn you again to put little trust in the reports that are brought down by the daily train from Manassas. Our men hold Munson's and Mason's Hills, but have made no attempt to extend the line.

It is impossible to say how long this condition of things will last. Every one here has confidence in our leaders, and every one is satisfied all i
