Federal Mendacity. The Northern telegrams report a "great victory" over Col. Ashby, at Harper's Ferry, on the 16th inst. This is perfectly in keeping with the Federal policy throughout.
ork Herald's account of the fight at Harper's Ferry. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald, of the 17th, contains the following in regard to the late fight at Harper's Ferry, in which the Confederates were successful: "The brilliant achievement of Col. Geary at Harper's Ferry appears almost incredible. The first account received here was regarded as an exaggeration, but it is fully confirmed by dispatches received to-day. Bolivar Heights is a very strong position. With the exception of Turner Ashby's cavalry, the rebel forces engaged were exclusively of the recently drafted Virginians. They were armed with a promiscuous variety of weapons, from shot-guns to horse pistols. There have been numerous reports to-day of a renewal of the fight at Bolivar Heights, but a dispatch was received here this afternoon by Gen. Banks, who is in town, stating that everything was perfectly quiet on the upper Potomac; especially at Harper's Ferry and Bolivar Heights."
