The Exploit of Stuart's cavalry.Another Federal account. A letter in the Philadelphia Press, dated White House, June 14, gives the fullest Yankee version that we have yet seen of the recent cavalry reconnaissance in the rear of McClellan's army. After staling that the daring "rebels" crossed the Pamunkey "from Prince William county to Garlick's Landing" four miles above the White House, where they burned the vessels and captured and destroyed other property, the writer proceeds: The precise knowledge which the rebels possess of the character of the roads and situation of the country must have been of great service to them on this occasion, and so adroitly did they avail themselves of this knowledge, that before any one here was aware of the fact, they had proceeded as far up the railroad as Tunstall's Station, some five miles from this place. About the time the rebels arrived at Tunstall's Station, one of the trains happened, unfortunately, to be on its way down to Whit

Gregg has made a reconnaissance to Charles City Court-House, recovering some mules driven off by the rebel Colonel Stuart in the recent raid on the Pamunkey river. General McClellan complimented both officers on the success of their movements. Further than these movements there is nothing to report from the Army of the Potomac.

"On Saturday," say they "we were driven by superior numbers from our position, which was occupied by raw troops; but on Sunday we effectually routed your columns at the point of the bayonet." This McClellan reports officially, at the same time acknowledging a heavy and almost irreparable loss. Our loss is reported heavier than theirs. We are accustomed to such extravagant misrepresentations, and can readily pass it by without comment. The successful expedition of Stuart's cavalry, on the 13th, is designated as a " bold and brilliant dash upon our rear." It astounded all — alarmed not a few. Many thought Jackson, with his whole force, was about to precipitate himself upon them, while others even feared it might be the ubiquitous Beauregard, with his entire Army of the West. Imagine the commotion in a bee-hive when roughly jarred, and an idea may be formed of the placidity of the Yankee camps by this "bold and brilliant dash upon our rear." They admit the f
