oon Ford on the east to Case's Ford on the west, with pickets and scouting parties beyond these points. Culpeper is now comparatively relieved from the wounded, excepting such cases where death would ensues from immediate removal. Several amputations were performed yesterday upon the rebel wounded who were found and collected this side of the Rapidan. Gen. Banks is fast recovering from his injuries. Yesterday he was able to walk about with the aid of a cane. Culpeper,Aug. 16.--Gen Sigel, who occupies the advance, near the Rapidan, reports that the enemy made, this morning, and attempt of felut to cross the river, but he drove them back. All was quiet at last advised. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, Aug. 16.--Harrison's Landing was evacuated by the rear of Gen. McClellan's army this morning, after all the public property best been removed, All was done in good order. The advance of the army arrived at Williamsburg this (Saturday) morning. N
ng them approaching, turned on his horse and took six deliberate shots at them, but neither took effect. The firing took place in the square on which we live, and some of it immediately in front of our residence. The Confederates were released, and soon thereafter the Federal captured. From the prisoners we learn the Federal force consisted of parts of two Indiana companies. (55 men,) under Capts Sharra and Matheny, and picked men from the 6th Ohio (80 men) under a Major. The whole force was therefore only 135 men. Captain Dahlgren, of Gen Sigel's staff was, in command.--Only about one-half of his force crossed the river and came to Fredericksburg. Citizens of Falmouth say the whole force reached 210; but our information is from Federal prisoners. The spirit of Capt. Simpson's company is highly extolled.--They had arrived only the night before, and were weary, but they dashed into the fray in gallant style. Citizens were not interfered with nor their property injured.
for it must be remembered that Grant has yet to add to his right wing the important corps under Sigel, from the Valley. No immediate or startling end of such a struggle can be expected. It may belongs. Howin K. Stanton, Secretary of War. Flem's defeat. Stanton makes the of Sigel quite as bad as the Confederate history of it. In his official telegram he says: Dispatches from General Sigel, received this evening, report that on Sunday he fought the forces of Echoes and Emboden, under Breckinridge, at New Market; that the enemy's forces were superior in number, and An officer who participated in the engagement of the 15th instant, at New Market, under General Sigel, writes as follows: The fighting was terrific, the most on of any battle in the Valleydly, and some of the infantry no better; but the latter wore rallied, the cavalry could not be Gen Sigel was in front, and in the thick of the battle all day, encouraging, directing, and leading the
n refused to come up to the scratch. A third time Grant made Lee run by running first himself, and drawing Lee after him. "We of the North," says the Tribune, "call this a retreat." We of the South, says the Dispatch, call it no such thing. We contend that that party which leaves the ground last, and in rear of the other party, does not retreat, and such were the facts in the case. As for the reports about Banke's surrender, they came from the Yankees, and were lies of course, and if Sigel was not whipped it is difficult to say why he ran away and burned the bridge over the Shenandoah behind him. Perhaps they do not call such moves retreats in the North, because the retreating party was not behind the victorious party, as Lee was behind Grant! But the Tribune ought to have allowances made for its bad humor. It has had much to try its temper since this campaign begun, and is in a fair way to have a great deal more. We tremble for its equanimity, should Grant file off to
Sigel on Lee. --On Tuesday night (a week before Breckinridge whipped him,) Gen Sigel, according to the New York Times, made a very remarkable speech in Martinsburg, Va. He said: "The war has gone on three years, and it is a great disgrace to the North that, with all its superiority of men and money, the rebels have not been conquered. I am now here, where I was two years ago. Only think of it! We march to morrow to fight the greatest General of the age, the rebel Robert Lee." At this remark the General was greeted with hisses from some intense loyalists.--He replied, "You may hiss, but he is a great General, although a rebel,"
