General Johnston at Winchester Awaln. Gen. Johnston has resumed his original position at Winchester. This place is the commanding strategic point of all that country. He moved forward from it to meet Patterson, but that General fell back into Martinsburg, to await reinforcement, Having the protection of the town as a fortification, and its women and children as a shield, he lies secure. Johnston, with his far inferior force, did not fell justified in attacking, and Winchester being the common converging point of several roads, he has felt bound to fall back upon that town, rest McClellan or some other enemy might get into his rear. He thus gains the advantage of choosing his own fighting ground against a superior force, and places his adversary at the disadvantage of making the attack. Surely after so many efforts to get a fight out of the enemy without success, our General may be excused for resuming his best position.
