ispatches in the New York Herald, dated Washington, the 29th, give an interesting history of what the Yankees say has been done: First then, after the battle of Cedar Mountain the forces under Stonewall Jackson withdrew from the vicinity of Rapidan, and were for some days unheard of, except that a strong force was in the vicinity of Madison Court-House, some 12 miles to the westward, in the direction of Luray and the Shenandoah Valley; but it was supposed that this was only a wing of the aHouse, where he rejoined Ewell. Then the reunited army marched to Luray, in the Shenandoah Valley, thence northward to Berry's ford, where he crossed, while Lee was keeping General Pope engaged in front. Lee's plan was to keep Pope between the Rapidan and the Rappahannock rivers until Jackson had attained his position at Manassas (or perhaps at Rappahannock bridge); but General Pope's retreat to the Rappahannock's north bank frustrated that design, and rendered it necessary for Lee to follow
r this army has steadily advanced, and repulsed the frequent attacks of the enemy. The line of the Rappahannock and Warrenton has been relieved. Many prisoners are captured, and I regret, quantities of stores to be destroyed for want of transportation. Anderson not yet up, and I hear nothing of those behind. We have Ewell, Trimble, and Taliaferro wounded. The latter slightly, the others not mortally. R. E. Lee. Hdq'rs Army Northern Virginia, Grovetown, Aug. 30, 10 P. M., via Rapidan. To President Davis: This army achieved to day, on the plains of Manassas, a signal victory over the combined forces of Gens. McClellan and Pope. On the 28th and 29th each wing, under Gens. Longstreet and Jackson, repulsed with valor attacks made on them separately. We mourn the loss of our gallant dead in every conflict, yet our gratitude to Almighty God for His mercies rises higher each day. To Him, and to the valor of our troops, a nation's gratitude is due. R. E. Lee.
