l. A full company of home cavalry from Crawford County, led by Major Woodbury, started from Leavenworth in pursuit as soon as he could muster direction of the Ohio River. Two hours after they had departed Major Woodbury came up, and, without halting, pushed on in pursuit, in the hop half-hour to plunder a store, and on arriving there in pursuit Major Woodbury found he was only a half-hour behind his game. The place wheem across. The reception by the inhabitants and the pursuit by Major Woodbury not having been looked for, hastened their departure about fiftg his prisoners and taking an account of the captured property, Major Woodbury with his cavalry made his appearance. They were deeply chagrinof the affair is to be divided equally between Major Clendenin, Major Woodbury, and the home guard from Mitchell. The latter by their resistance, and Major Woodbury by his pursuit, completely broke up the plans of the rebels. By driving them to the river fifteen hours before the ap

South-Mountain, historic evermore, since a previous rebel invasion faded out thence to Antietam, loomed up on the left amid the morning mists before us stretched a winding turnpike, upheaved and bent about by a billowy country that in its cultivation and improvements began to give evidence of proximity to Pennsylvania farmers. The army had moved up the valley of the Monocacy through Walkersville, Woodbury, and Middleburgh — all pleasant little Maryland villages — where, in peaceful times, Rip Van Winkle might have slumbered undisturbed. The direction seemed too far north for Westminster, and a courier, coming back with despatches, presently informed us that headquarters were not there, but at Taneytown, a point considerably farther north and west. Evidently there was a change in our plans. We were not going to York, or headquarters would not be at Taneytown; and it was fair to suppose tha
e can boast, as demonstrated in the persons of Pancost, Capehart, Phillips and others; of the patriotic ladies in the towns through which this command has passed during the last three weeks--especially the ladies of Boonsboro — who with their own fair hands made and presented flags to the commanders of several brigades; but these matters must be reserved for a more fitting occasion. The following named persons were in the Washington Hotel Hospital, Hagerstown, July fourteenth: Sergeant J. W. Woodbury, First Vermont cavalry--wounded in leg. W. Judy, First Ohio, color-bearer to General Kilpatrick's body-guard — thigh. J. S. Merritt, First Vermont cavalry--arm. P. Welsh, First Michigan cavalry--back. Daniel Horton, Eighteenth Pennsylvania cavalry--shoulder. J. M. Austin, Seventh Michigan cavalry--scalp. S. M. Conklin, Eighteenth Pennsylvania cavalry--shoulder. George S. Spofford, First Vermont cavalry--arm. Albert Shew, Philadelphia Blue reserves — shoulder.<
lls, and then through Matt's Hollow, a gorge two miles long, with scarce room anywhere for wagons to pass each other. These passes were occupied by the enemy, but eight miles from Hardee's headquarters, not more than sixteen miles from their left at Shelbyville. The plan was, therefore, to move General Granger's command to Triune, and thus create the impression of our intention to advance on them by the Shelbyville and Triune pikes, while cavalry movements and an infantry advance toward Woodbury would seem to be feints designed by us to deceive Bragg, and conceal our supposed real designs on their left when the topography and the roads presented comparatively slight obstacles and afforded great facilities for moving in force. Events proved that this had the desired effect; and accordingly Bragg called forward Buckner and all the spare troops at his command from East-Tennessee and the lines of the railroads, the last of them arriving on the very evening they began their retreat f
