ising no interference in the expression of opinion, but simple protection. Our army has behaved admirably, producing a fine impression on those even who had been opposed to our entering the State. Gen. Jackson, on reaching Maryland, was presented by a citizen with a splendid charger, which proved too unmanageable for him, who is not used to a gay animal, and threw him, fortunately without inflicting serious injury.--A few days since, Gen. J. recrossed the river, driving the enemy out of Martinsburg. He now has surrounded Harper's Ferry, which is still held by the enemy. When that place is taken, as a base for further operations, our whole army will doubtless move to the interior of Maryland. Saturday night, Ex-Gov. Lowe made a thrilling speech here. He said Maryland, long disappointed, had been perfectly taken by surprise on the entrance of our army and that when it was seen to be no mere raid, 25,000 men would flock to our standard, and a provisional government would be formed.

d Ohio railroad, was blown up, thus effectually breaking the connection for some time yet to come. At Boonesboro' Russell's cavalry company charged upon Gen. Jackson and staff, who were riding on in front of the lines, captured the horses of two or three officers who were taking dinner at the hotel, and made off before they could be captured.

It was quite diverting the day we entered Frederick to see the boys eating watermelons. They were the first we had seen, and there were a quantity of them, at cheap rates. At every corner, and, in fa

evening reached the position assigned them. Gen. Jackson's force reached Williamsport men the Potomac, on Friday morning, and immediately crossed and moved on Martinsburg twenty miles above Harper's Ferry, where there were some three or four thousand of the enemy's forces. On the approach of Gen. Jackson this force fell back, an portion of his troops to occupy and hold the Maryland Heights, Gen. Jackson was directed by Gen. Lee to recross the Potomac at Williamsport, take possession of Martinsburg, and then pass rapidly behind Harper's Ferry, that a capture might be effected of the garrison and stores known to be there. The movement was admirably conducted. Martinsburg fell, with a capture of 150 prisoners and some stores, the most being taken to the Ferry. The investment of Harper's Ferry was effected on Saturday. Sunday morning there was some firing and it was renewed yesterday morning, and the result the unconditional surrender of the garrison--10,000 men with all the arms,
