Your readers have already been fully informed of our little skirmish near Falling Waters, in Berkeley county, with the enemy under the command surrounded by superior numbers, we retreated several miles this side of Martinsburg, and, having been reinforced by General Johnston, offered the enemy a fair fight on an open field; but General Patterson had no idea of meeting General Johnston on aGeneral Johnston on anything near an even footing.
