nitions, and supplies, for a determined advance against Bragg's army confronting him at Shelbyville or Tullahoma, the noted and generally successful raider Morgan was preparing, on our right, for a more extensive and daring cavalry expedition than he had yet undertaken.
Meantime, a party of predatory horsemen, about 80 in number, claiming to belong to the 2d Kentucky Confederate cavalry, crossed the Ohio from western Kentucky near Leavenworth, Ind., about the middle of June, raiding through Orange, Orleans, and Washington counties; and were trying to make their way back into Kentucky, when they were cornered
June 19, 1863. by the Leavenworth home guards, Maj. Clendenin, and the steamboat Izetta, and were soon glad to surrender.
Barely one of them escaped to the Kentucky shore, and he was immediately captured.

notes.--Recruited in Orange county in August, 1862, and organized at Goshen, N. Y. It was mustered into service there, and five days later it crossed the Potomac, 930 strong.
After two months service in Virginia, the regiment joined the Army of the Potomac at Harper's Ferry.
It was placed in Whipple's Division, with which command it was under fire at Fredericksburg, and hotly engaged at Chancellorsville.
In the latter engagement it lost 28 killed, 161 wounded, and 15 missing; a total of 204 out of 550 engaged.
early at an end. Such was the talk — the feeling.
All is now changed.
The army is back in its camp.
The victory that was to be is not.
It will be my endeavor to present a condensed review of the two armies, commencing with last Saturday, sifting, with what ability I may have, the true from the false, using official information.
Saturday Morning.--The single house which makes Chancellorsville is at a crossing of roads at the intersection of the Gordonsville plank-road and the old Orange county turnpike.
Standing on the piazza and looking south, you look directly down the old turnpike road to Scott's Run.
As you face south, the Rappahannock is at your back.
It is five miles to United States Ford.
In front of the house and west of it, along the plank-road, is a small field; all the rest is woods.
In this field is an immense train of artillery, ammunition-wagons, cavalry, ambulances, supplies, hospitals, and troops.
Here are General Hooker's headquarters — the grand centre
