All reports concur in the statement that the enemy, in heavy force, have crossed the Potomac at Harper's Ferry and Shepherdstown, and that our own forces, under General Lee have taken up a strong position, in which to await the approach of the enemy. The enemy are represented to be approaching by the turnpike road leading from Harper's Ferry to Smithfield, in Jefferson county, and from Shepherdstown by way of the Smithfield and Shepherdstown turnpike. Both of these are fiading through the heart of Jefferson county. From Shepherdstown to Smithfield the distance is twelve miles, and from Harper's Ferry to the same point is about fifteen miles.

He never saw that ancient worthy, does not know his son, John Brown, Jr., and did not enter his regiment as a Captain, but was promoted from Lieutenant. We make this explanation because a number of our citizens yesterday applied for permission to see Capt. Brown, who were necessarily refused, he not being the right man.

But it does not balance our losses of that kind at Harper's Ferry, nor our losses of artillery, which were heavy both at Bull Run and Harpers Ferry.

Rope, be have gained in the material of war, and have very much upon stores captured from our army, and upon provisions and forage plundered in Maryland. They must now subsist, for the present upon the secession far more of the Valley of Virginia. Without speculating further upon the future is obvious that the present
