the war. He also recommends legislation for the summary punishment of persons in Maryland, who shall be convicted of aiding or abetting in any manner those who are in arms against the Government. A spirited skirmish took place to-night near Anandale on the Little River Turnpike, Va. It having been ascertained that a number of rebel cavalry were in the habit of coming out toward the pickets in that locality, and driving in or capturing them, last night Colonel Taylor, with twenty-five or thirty men from the Third New Jersey regiment, went out toward Anandale, where the rebels were said to appear occasionally, coming down the road at full gallop. They tied a piece of telegraph wire across the road, just high enough to trip the horses and throw them with their riders, and then placed themselves in ambush beside the road. About half-past 11 forty or fifty of the rebel cavalry approached, galloping down the road. The head horseman tripped and fell, and the others rushing on, sever

Halleck, at 3 P. M., replied: I want Franklin's about the enemy. Perhaps he may get such information at Anandale as to prevent his going farther. Otherwise, he will pushClellan had already not only arrested Franklin's march at Anandale, but sent Sumner's corps northward toward Arlington and C. I have just been told that Franklin's corps stopped at Anandale, and that he was this evening in Alexandria. This is all Halleck: It was not safe for Franklin to move beyond Anandale, under the circumstances, until we knew what was at Vienncumstances of the case. He was very wrong in stopping at Anandale. Moreover, I learned last night that the quartermaster'sChain Bridge, and to move the rest, via Columbia pike, on Anandale and Fairfax Court House, if this is the route you wish th

The roads tHeadquarters that Colonel Wurtchel, of the New York Eighth, had proceeded without difficulty to Anandale, a point some distance beyond any previous advance, and found no indications of the enemy for mve demonstrations were intended. It was merely an expedition of inquiry and investigation. At Anandale the plan of operations was rapidly formed. Skirmishers were sent out to the right and left in an officers are perfect masters of at least this branch of warlike duty. Within the village of Anandale there was little to cause detention. The inhabitants were few, and had no information of valueathies to the last occupiers, had apparently been shielded from molestation. One mile beyond Anandale, upon the brow of a considerable elevation, the first halt was ordered. The road having been u

Besides participating in the battles indicated by casualties enumerated in the above muster-roll, the command was present at the following times and places, not participating, however, in all the engagements named: Falling Waters, June 20, 1861; Munson's Hill, September 11, 1861; Drainesville, ——, 1861; Anandale, December —, 1861; Pendleton, Franklin county, May 10, 1862; Front Royal, May 24, 1862; Port Republic, June 8 and 9, 1862; Cold Harbor, June 27, 1862; Peach Orchard, June 29, 1862, White Oak Swamp and Frazier's Farm, June 30, 1862; Chantilly, September 1, 1862; aided in the capture of Harper's Ferry, and on detached duty September 19, 1862, when the battle at Antietam was fought; Fredericksburg, December 13, 1862; Winchester, June 13-15, 1863; Rappahannock Bridge, November 2, 1863.

together with their arms, equipments, and, for the most part, their horses, besides killing and wounding a number, and sustained himself no loss at all. This last is the first engagement with the enemy's cavalry — the result shows that he has not yet found the element of redemption from his manifest destiny. On the 2nd inst., Col. C. W. Field, 6th Va. Cavalry with a detachment of his regiment made a bold and successful dash into the enemy's infantry pickets stationed in the village of Anandale, killing 4, carrying off 15 captured, with their arms and equipments, sustaining a loss of two missing. To mention especially the conspicuous gallantry displayed on these various occasions would transcend the limits of their order.--Suffice it to say, the officers and men engaged here behaved in a manner mighty creditable and are entitled to the thanks of their countrymen. The other regiments of the Brigade while performing no less important and arduous services have not, within t
day of August we took up our march for Fairfax Court- House, arriving there at dark, as tired a set, of men as I ever saw. We reached the Court-House on Saturday night, and on Sunday morning pitched our tents on the left of the road, and just below the village, where we remained until the night of the 16th of October, when the whole army of the Potomac retreated. Our life, while encamped at Fairfax, was by far the most arduous that we have experienced, going alternately to Falls Church and Anandale on picket duty, and turning out at the beat of the long-roll to march to meet an enemy that would not show himself. On the occasion of one of these false alarms, the regiment marched is miles without halting. This sort of thing did us no harm, however, but rather served to inure us to hardship and danger, and to make us better soldiers. A short time after our arrival at Fairfax, Capt. S. P. Mitchell, our Adjutant, was appointed Brigade Quartermaster, with the rank of Major, and Lieut
d. Our men returned the fire and pursued them a short distance, and then wheeled about, deeming it prudent to return. None of our men were wounded, and, as far as known, the firing on our side was likewise ineffectual. Yesterday morning eight men, three from the 2d and five from the 4th New Jersey regiments in Gen. Kearney's brigade, General Franklin's division, left their respective companies, which were on picket duty at Edsell's Hill, and went to a house between Burkes station and Anandale. While there, apparently in obediences to a signal by the occupant, a body of about 150 rebel cavalry suddenly came upon them, and three who were in the house were taken prisoners. The other five escaped. A reconnaissance was made to-day by a squadron of the First New Jersey cavalry, belonging to Gen. Heintzleman's division, under command of Captain Shellnish. A portion of the squadron, commanded by Lieut. Janeville, of company D, of Jersey City, was ordered to proceed to the Bone M
