McCook calls a clean trot for Richmond. He is in the mountains northeast of Beverly, and Gen. Morris is after him; and unless he throws away all his guns, and heavy incumbrances, and is nimble on foot,will surely take him. Glorious, isn't it! With the exception of a small force near Charlestown, on the Kanawha River, Gen. McClellan has swept the rebels out of all that part of Virginia which belongs to his military district. The rebellion can never organize itself again in this region. Gov. Pierpont and his new Government will have free scope.

nemy, and not expecting to meet the enemy in position on the right hand side of the river, did not feel willing to risk an engagement. After reconnoitring their position, Colonel Lowe thought it advisable to fall back to a safe position, and send word to General Cox, on the opposite side of the river, of the condition of things here. The orders from General Cox were to move forward immediately. In the mean time the main army, under General Cox, had pushed forward and came out upon the Kanawha River, one mile above tile enemy on the right. At this point they found the steamer Julia Maffett, with two flat-boat loads of wheat in tow, destined for the use of the enemy. Captain Cotter, of the artillery, soon brought one of his guns to bear upon her, putting one shot and one shell through her hull, when the rebels fled, setting fire to the boat as they left.
