The forces that crossed at Germanna and at Ely's came three miles this side of Chancellorsville, on the old battle field, and skirmished with our forces a little, and then retired, recrossing the river.

Information was also brought down by passengers on the same train that the enemy were making a general advance along the entire lines.
