Stoner, seriously, if not mortally; M. L. Asbury, in arm; J. W. Lair, slightly; G. W. Simpson, slightly. Company D.--Corp. Horine, slightly; private Smith, slightly; private P. Hughes and Corp. Robert Carr. Company E.--Killed, Corp. John M. Johnson; wounded, seriously, Noah J. Parsons — left on the field. Company I.--Wounded, private Jas. Burham, slightly; W. Nelson, badly — not since heard of; missing, Dr. J. A Barnet. Company K.--Wounded, private J. B. West, badly; R. W. Leonard, slightly. Missing, H. C. Kennesly.

Our informant thinks the object of Jackson is to cross over, make a dash on Williamsport, and secure the stores and arms there. He informed Col. Leonard of all that was transpiring, and thinks the latter has taken full precautions to prevent it, by removing the stores, &c., to a more secure place, and that he also took steps to concentrate all his available force to prevent the passage of the river. Our informant passed the 5th Connecticut regiment en route for Williamsport, two miles northwest of Boonsborough, sixteen miles from Williamsport, and Best's battery, three-quarters of a mile in the rear of the Connecticut 5th.
