It was about one o'clock P. M. when I arrived near the point of the road leading to Port Republic, where the advance-guard had already come upon the enemy. A staff-officer, after indicating, Brigadier-General. Cincinnati Commercial account. headquarters army of Fremont, Port Republic, Va., June 9. You have received telegraphic intelligence of a severe battle having been fougving travelled the pike from Winchester, had suddenly turned to the left in the direction of Port Republic, over a miserably bad road, and with the intention of crossing the river. At this place, twhe rebels themselves. But let us go on with our march: The army moves in the direction of Port Republic without resistance. As we draw near that place we see a dense volume of smoke rising. Our

The enemy was found to be in full retreat on Port Republic, and our advance found his rear-guard barely acrat four o'clock A. M., next, that we might reach Port Republic at the time you indicated to me. When within about this time your order to Commandant of post at Port Republic was handed me; upon it, and the opinion of thesece, with cavalry and guns, to save the bridge at Port Republic. At that time it was impossible for him to movethirty-five or thirty-seven miles, by the way of Port Republic, for the purpose of destroying the railroad depoHalting, in the night, six miles before reaching Port Republic, Col. Carroll sent forward a party of scouts, whinformation that Jackson's train was parked near Port Republic with a drove of beef cattle herded near by, and n had he been ordered so to do. Retiring from Port Republic, Colonel Carroll brought his force to a stand at
long which many wagons were left in the woods, and wagon-loads of blankets, clothing, and other equipments are piled up in all directions. During the evening many of the rebels were killed by shells from a battery of General Stahl's brigade. General Ashby, who covered the retreat with his whole cavalry force and three regiments of infantry, and who exhibited admirable skill and audacity, was among the killed. General Milroy made a reconnoissance, to-day, about seven miles on the Port Republic road, and discovered a portion of the enemy's forces encamped in the timber. J. C. Fremont, Major-General Commanding. New-York Tribune account. Fremont's headquarters, Harrisonburgh, Va., June 7, 1862. The march from Newmarket, yesterday, was without opposition, until the advance — guard reached Harrisonburgh. Rebel cavalry showed themselves occasionally in front, but not in large numbers. They were drawn up in line some miles before Harrisonburgh, and as their numbers wer
re just eating supper. Some of them were in their tents, and some were sitting about under the trees. Suddenly I heard such a mighty hurrah out of doors that I thought heaven and earth had come together. Running to the door, I saw the Yankees running in every direction, and our men pursuing and catching them. One Yankee jumped into the Pamunkey and tried to swim across, but our men fired at him and he sunk directly. This was the only firing done. Philadelphia press account. White House, Va., June 14, 1862. One of the boldest and most astounding feats of the rebels in this war occurred on Friday evening last, a short distance from this place. It was another of those desperate efforts they have from time to time put forth to recover lost opportunity and atone for past defeats. The surprisal of Banks by Jackson, though of a more formidable and successful character, was not more complete, sudden, and unexpected than the one experienced in this department. A part, some
he previous day, and the line was ordered to resume its old position. Thursday afternoon the anticipated attack upon our right wing was made, and handsomely repulsed; but it was discovered that it had not been made by Jackson's command. Information was received that Jackson was sweeping down the Pamunkey, probably to capture military stores at White House, to cut off our communications with our water-base, and menace our rear. Orders were given at once to destroy all public property at White House and evacuate that point. Matters began to assume a critical appearance, and danger culminated in the disaster of Friday. It was then fully determined to change the base of operations to James River. It seems to me this was compulsory. The enemy had turned our right, evidently outnumbered us in great disproportion, was too strong in front for us to break through, and was in position to crush us in front and rear — and, perhaps, intended to strike on our left flank.
