On September 24th Col. J. E. B. Stuart received his promotion as brigadier-general of cavalry. His brigade, as nearly as can be ascertained, consisted of the First Virginia cavalry, under Col. W. E.

That gentle-mannered man and model soldier characterized such threatenings against defenseless citizens as atrocious, and by direction of his government sent a note to Halleck, the general commanding t

Robertson, with his cavalry and some guns returning from Stuart's expedition in Pope's rear, joined Early during the day.
