and his intercessions, all useful. We heard en route numerous and most startling rumors as to the progress and operations of our army, as, for instance, that Jackson was in Baltimore, that the Secessionists of that city had taken it without a struggle; that Washington had been evacuated, and that our victorious army was pressi not to be glad to see one coming on so benign a mission! Similar to him were those Yankees who, at the same place, said in all seriousness that it was hard that Jackson burnt the bridges, and made them rebuild them! Please to put on record the heroism of Miss Sue Kaufman, of Luray, who, when her father was in the enemy's hands, of opinion, but simple protection. Our army has behaved admirably, producing a fine impression on those even who had been opposed to our entering the State. Gen. Jackson, on reaching Maryland, was presented by a citizen with a splendid charger, which proved too unmanageable for him, who is not used to a gay animal, and threw hi
tions, from the very imperfect accounts which we have received, they were somewhat as follows: Our army in Maryland is divided into three corps, commanded by Generals Jackson, Longstreet and Hill. Of these corps Jackson's was engaged in the siege of Harper's Ferry, and the other two covered his operations. Conceiving it to be of while the battle was still raging at Boonsborough, Gen. Miles, with his whole army, variously estimated at eight, ten, and twelve thousand men, surrendered to Gen. Jackson. Vast quantities of stores, 12,000 small arms, fifty pieces of artillery, and at least 1,000 negroes (some say 2,500) were captured. Having disposed of Miles and his army, Gen. Jackson was marching rapidly down the Potomac, with the intention of crossing below and getting in the rear of McClellan, thus cutting him off effectually from Washington. These operations shed an almost unparalleled lustre on the Confederate arms. In the battle of Boonsborough, or in the operations befor
sed twice, with a loss of 5,000 in killed and wounded. Our loss was heavy. Our troops fell back towards the Potomac from reasons that can be easily conjectured, Jackson will now recross the Potomac at Harper's Ferry, circumvent the enemy, if he has had the temerity to follow our advanced corps, and we shall capture or disperse thto these statements, there were countess rumors in circulation about this engagement. One to the effect that Gen. Longstreet has been killed, and another that Gen. Jackson, with his once from Harper's Ferry, had gained the rear of the enemy, and cut off his retreat to Washington. We endeavored to trace these statements, and are s, and are ready to conclude that they have no substantial foundation. That Gen. Jackson will make the effort to change McClellan's "base," we think highly probable, and we have reason to hope, from his perseverance, that his effort will be successful; but that the feat has been accomplished, there is no information to support.

even with guards at their doors to protect them from intrusion. Whilst there about 1,800 Marylanders enlisted in our army. Many came down from Pennsylvania and joined. I saw a squad of eight Pennsylvanians myself, who reported numbers of others as on their way to join us. A large iron bridge near that place on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, was blown up, thus effectually breaking the connection for some time yet to come. At Boonesboro' Russell's cavalry company charged upon Gen. Jackson and staff, who were riding on in front of the lines, captured the horses of two or three officers who were taking dinner at the hotel, and made off before they could be captured. I learned at Williamsport, the residence of Capt. Russell, that he was wounded in the month during the skirmish. The enemy retreated from Martinsburg to Harper's Ferry yesterday, where, no doubt, they will be compelled to make a stand. It is thought that their whole force at that place will be captured.
