my directions, and as soon as the train began to move we were fired upon by a crowd of more than one hundred armed men, who had appeared upon the road out of the bushes near the spot where the ties had been placed on the road. We all escaped uninjured, although twenty or thirty shots were fired before we were out of reach. There were no persons on the train as passengers, but an old black man, two aged white men, and myself. This whole nefarious affair was, I have no doubt, contrived against my liberty, if not my life, by spies resident in this place, who notified their allies in Virginia that I was to pass on the railroad this morning. And nothing saved me but that coolness and presence of mind which prompted me, under Providence, to see and guard against the danger prompt as electricity. Please hurry on the arming of our volunteers in Frederick, as I am doing here, that we may be ready for spies within and traitors without our State. Yours, respectfully, Francis Thomas.

fullest success, I marched my command to the ferry, and in five hours it was safely landed in Maryland. There being no immediate apprehension of the enemy there, I ordered the Wisconsin companies to report to Colonel Ruger, their commander, in Frederick, and returned to this place with part of my regiment and the two guns of the New York battery, leaving Captain Tompkins' guns with Major Gould for a few days; also one company from my own regiment. Yours, &c., John W. Geary, Colonel Commandok. The Virginians followed, but were unable, as the retreating enemy had a big start, to overtake them. Four of the Wisconsin men were killed, and eight or ten of the Massachusetts men wounded. The killed and wounded were brought here (to Frederick) this morning. Now I assure you this is the truth of the whole matter. The Wisconsin boys complain of the Massachusetts men for running first, who themselves are charged in turn with cowardice. Colonel Geary had command of the Federals, and
mmander thus early in the action, the company still continued to fight with commendable order. Company K.--Captain Michael Gerity, commanding. Killed-Privates: John Cahill, James Danver, Edward Sullivan, John Sullivan--4. Wounded--Sergeants: Patrick Swords, Patrick Condon; Corporals: Peter McGreever, Edward Galliger--4. Missing--Captain Michael Gerity, (supposed to be killed;) Sergeants: James J. Monaghan, Martin Ryan; Corporals: Charles C. Landers, Daniel Sullivan, Wm. Byrne; Privates: Frederick Boff Geo. Blake, Dennis Callegan, Thomas Carvey, Patrick Collins, James Connor, Michael Clancey, Cornelius Denneen, Terrance Traddy, Wm. Eavley, Adam Heydenhoff, Wm. Harding, James Gifford, Robert Hesey, James Geever, Daniel Mahoney, James McCaller, Patrick McManus, Thomas Murray, Andrew A. Olwell, Bernard Pegram, Eugene Sullivan, Peter West, William J. Walsh, William Wallace, Antoine Schlessinger--33. The supposition that Captain Gerity is among the killed is well founded, though not f
lled for, without delay. This was imperative, and the troops were sent, leaving him without a single piece of artillery, and for the time, a single troop of cavalry. It was a gloomy night, but they were all brought over the river again without loss. On the 20th of June he was asked by the General-in-Chief to propose, without delay, a plan of operations. On the 21st he submitted to the General-in-Chief his plan, which was to abandon the present line of operations, move all supplies to Frederick, occupy Maryland Heights with Major Doubleday's heavy guns, and a brigade of infantry to support them, and with every thing else — horse, foot and artillery — to cross the Potomac at Point of Rocks, and unite with Colonel Stone's force at Leesburg, from which point he could operate as circumstances should demand, and as the General's orders should require. No reply was received; but on the 27th, the General telegraphed him that he supposed he was that day crossing the river in pursuit of
urs, including twenty miles of horse transportation. In a few days the wires will connect. Lamon's brigade (the First Virginia regiment) consists of three companies of cavalry, now with General Kelly; four companies of infantry, and two companies of artillery, under Colonel Leonard. The latter have volunteered to act as riflemen until their batteries are received. A specimen of forced marching occurred on Wednesday night. Colonel Kenly's First Maryland regiment left their camp near Frederick at twelve o'clock and arrived here at ten o'clock on Thursday morning--a distance of nearly twenty-eight miles. They stopped four times only on the route, resting fifteen minutes on each occasion. Dam No. 4, Dec. 22, 1861. James Greenwood, a staunch Unionist, reports that there is but one guerilla company left to keep guard on the neck opposite, between this place and Falling Waters, four miles above. The remainder left for Martinsburg Saturday morning, excepting the wagons containing
